Link Market and Text-Link Ads
Link Exchange

Well, I'm sort of old school and prefer the organic way of building link building. I've tried Text-Link-Ads and found it to be a waste of money and time. I was approached with a new similar solution called Link Market and unsure about the solution. Could this potentially hurt my PR or help? Can anyone provide me with some insight on the differences and pro's and cons' of these services?

Clearly, I would not try link networks anymore. Google is really good now to spot those links.
Also, Text-Link-Ads is the network to avoid. The links there are very toxic, and you have more chance to harm your site than getting rankings.

Great response. Some people swear by these sorts of networks and people like us hate them. Link Market offers a low cost, but a lot of leg work to get up and running.

With so much contradicting data on this topic, it's tough to distinguish good information from bad. I'm unsure about what to tell clients at times when approached. I prefer reciprocal link partnerships that work similar to partnerships... Look forward to other comments.

Lots of networks come and go, but you are best sourcing everything, and building everything, yourself.

Keep a low profile and small footprint.

Good advice.

You have to keep in mind that any link network deals that are available in public and paid membership forums are easily available to the Google spam team folks, too.

Link builders such as the one's you've mentioned really don't have any empathy for your business - only for your $$'s. The quality of links is poor due to their need to produce volume to run a business. Cain's advice is good advice - but you have to put the effort in .
