1) How do you pay your link developers?

2) Just a flat rate no matter how many links they get?

3) What happens with links deleted after linking in first time?

4) How do you control the anchors?

5) Do they have access to your linking pages in your own domain?

1) Per link

2) Never

3) Input the "built links" URLs into a software program that is able to detect the presence of your link code, if no link is present send them back to the link developers for a follow up.

4) Give your link builders code with your desired anchor code and URL, but don't pitch a fuss if a small percentage aren't correct, trying to control other webmasters is like trying to herd cats... and good link builders are so hard to find.

5) I'd give them a few non-essential sites to work with so that the links aren't reciprocals.

>>> 1) How do you pay your link developers?

That would depend if they were in house or an outsource firm.

2) Just a flat rate no matter how many links they get?

For in house, yes, with a minimum quota to meet per month. Commission structure could be put into place for "spectacular" links.

3) What happens with links deleted after linking in first time?

Depends on how soon they were deleted after posting - link rot happens. As the above said, you can have them follow up. If they aren't recips, I'd only be tracking the "important" ones.

4) How do you control the anchors?

Detailed sheet... anchor one column, page to link it to in the other. Sometimes they can't assign anchor due to the other sites desires or they may not "suggest" anchor if the general presence of a link on that site is worth a lot no matter the anchor (i.e. I don't care what anchor - if any - a big news site uses to link to me - as long as they link to me).

5) Do they have access to your linking pages in your own domain?

Again, depends on the in or out of house angle to me. If they are in house, sure. Out of house, no. You can always restrict their access as well.

I'm afraid of investing many time and money and get stuck on pr 5 without any noticeable improvement really...

Do you notice improvement after and before your link builidng?

Do you get pr5, 6, 7 links sometimes with triangular or reciprocal, or just pr1, 2, 3?

I notice myself many webmasters are not hip to the idea of triangular trading in this matter. Some will do it while others flat out dont like it.

There are important one way trades such as you describe, and they are nice when they come around :P

Can somebody confirm if their linking efforts end in a lot of pr0,1,2 recip links or is it realistic to get some pr5,6,7 without paying a "text add" (buying link)

I don't do it, and not because I don't like it - but because I feel that done en mass it is detectable and in two years they won't do me any good. I'm building links for tomorrow (traffic) and not for today (page rank and anchor text) on sites I care about.

>>>confirm if their linking efforts end in a lot of pr0,1,2 recip links

The guys I deal with have more than half of their links come from sites PR4 and above and less than 20% of them are recips - they follow a detailed action plan, are quick at grasping things and are in house. A lot comes down to training them. If they were expert link builders capable of forming their own working strategies and picking out "prime" links with no nudging and training, then they wouldn't be hireable.

get stuck on pr 5

Forget about PR. PR 4 and PR 5 sites can out rank (and hence out earn) PR 7 and PR 8 sites nowadays. I'd take 100 PR 5 links over a PR 8 link any day, though the benefit wouldn't be reflected in the toolbar, it sure would be in the SERPs.

I have found that a combination of links such as Low PR to High PR Help everything is a vote. I would go for any themed site with a one-way link from content talking about what the same thing I do or simular.. It's all about creating a buzz and looking natural right?

Payment is based on per link based on the PR :)

When a link is removed, it is relaced with a similar Pr link.

We are very particular about the Anchor. It is take very seriously for each link added.
