Buy Text Ads to improve link popularity?
Does it really work?

I have seen opportunities to buy text ads on blog sites that claim to help your link popularity and thus improve your position in organic search results.
I know it is valuable to have your link listed naturally on popular blog sites, but does buying text ad links really work? Does Google consider a text ad link from a blog site a true IBL? Or would I just be wasting money?

linking from ablog it's the fastest way to get banned from Google (and maybe other SEs)...
Take care.

Don't think so. There may thousands of legitimate instances of site owners who have personal---and topic-related blogs--which link back to their main site. And such linking would be logical and natural.

Banning is extremely rare and only done in the most egregious instances, as anyone who has ever filed multiple spam reports on the same abuser can testify

I've purchased many links on either a monthly basis or as a permanent link on blogs. The key is to make sure the blog has content which is relevant to your site.

You can buy the links directly from the blog or use a broker. Make sure you use a reputable broker - here are some of the good ones:

1. Text-Link-Ads
2. Text Link Brokers
3. LinkExperts
4. LinkWorth

As far as bannings...if you buys 1000's overnight, you might have a problem, but buying a few high quality links here and there is a great strategy.

try contacting blog owners directly. if your site is relevant to their blog, chances are they will link to you for free...which is the best way :)

Shippi has my support.

“has content which is relevant to your site.” – Relevancy is the key
“Make sure you use a reputable broker” – Poor judgment can get you in hot water

The list is good as well, no additions from me….

“if you buys 1000's overnight, you might have a problem” Is important.

In short you want to ‘mimic’ an organic linking pattern. People don’t usually get linked back to from completely irrelevant sites and they don’t usually get 1000 IBLs (inbound links) overnight. It’s not a great leap to imagine what potential ‘filters’ are in place to fight SE IBL spamming.

I must say that the entire practice has an inherent risk and I do not stand behind them ‘officially’ as an SEM provider. There are many, many ways of running a Link Building program with far less ‘risk’. Due to the fact I am contractually obligated to my clients, this would fall under ‘at your own risk’ for me and I wouldn’t warrantee the work nor guarantee that it won’t backfire.

That said, done responsibly, it can work just fine. Lol… both sides of the coin for you
