[For some strange reason, this thread has been showing as one of my "active threads" since it was posted, even though I didn't contribute until now - thought I might as well pitch-in to make it official.]
Depending on relevancy and number of outbounds, we'd probably pay as much as $400 if we thought it'd give us a lot of traffic too.
Then again I work for a company that has no qualms throwing the $$$ around. It's all in what you got for a budget.
I haven't had any trouble getting a couple of good free ones with my sites, but I guess it depends on the niche you're in. Perhaps I've been fortunate in my choice of subject matter.
Thus, if there were 10,000 uniques to that page per day, you would get 100 targeted visitors. Multiply that by your conversion dollar rate to get the value of link over whatever period you choose.
Rich Dad asked me, how many links can you afford if they each cost you $100 per month? Not many, I said. How many links can you afford if each one makes you $100 per month? he asked me. As many as I can get, I said.
Surely getting a good quality, well-targetted PR 7 link is not so hard that one must pay for it.
I have no clue how to get a PR7 link. PR7 pages simply aren't that common. And even rarer is the website that has more than one PR7 page. How many people want to link to you from their homepage?
I merely do some web searches on my keywords, then fire of a friendly link request email. Again, I assume I've just been really lucky, judging by the responses here. I already have three PR7 backlinks on my most recent project - with a fourth soon to come if I can just get the powers-that-be at Yahoo's directory to come around - along with a handful of PR 5 and 6 links. Also, I'm pleasantly surprised at how fast I got a DMOZ listing. I'm looking forward to the next PR update to see how this all is reflected in my own pagerank.
I wonder how patient people are at looking for good backlinks? When I do a search on my keywords in Google, I look well beyond the first few pages of results. Often, potential candidates with the best PR are buried way back in the results.
Thanks for all the info
PR5 $8 / month

Inside page prices sell for about 50% less.
Homepage plus 5 - 10 inside pages fetch about 50% more.
Prices vary because of topic - Gambling, Adult, and travel LinkAds cost more - extreme niche sites get less.
Other important factors:
Web Site traffic
Text Link Position on page
Total Linkads being sold on page / total outbound links
Number and quality of inbound links. EDUs in backlinks are extremely valuable
Age of site
DMOZ and/or Yahoo listed
1) You should look at the number of backlinks the site has
2) Is the link just a few keywords of anchor text there for the sole purpose of SEO, or is it an actual ad consisting of a headline and description?
3) Will this link provide you with traffic. There are many Pr4 sites that would be worth $1200 a month just based on the volume of traffic the site will give you. In fact I can think of a handful of companies out there that sell text links that only offer this traffic benefit and no Search Benifit.
Anyway, just a few more things to think about.
get loads of traffic, and that taffic will create links for you. it becomes a snowball effect (if your site has intrinsic value).
thats what i am trying to do at least. get infront of google, rather than running behind algo changes. traffic is the key to your site. capture traffic, and the serps will get better. get out of that box!
