Right. What they are worth is whatever you can sell these links for. As for people buying links who have a clue, if they must then they definitely would want to pay on a month to month basis, just in case the site linking to them gets penalized.
Whatever is charged, make it quick, as the value of PR has been falling steadily. That trend is likely to continue.
It isn't what any of us would pay, because as Brett points out a PR7 link wouldn't be worth much if all reading here have PR6 or better sites. The question is what would people with low PR sites who want a high PR willing to pay? Offhand I've never seen figures posted by people who were selling PR saying what they were getting. And, the value of PR has been falling a lot. Googleguy once even posted that Google had reduced the weighting of PR in the algo because they were concerned about PR for sale.
In that case we'd need to know more details about this associates site. As Brett pointed out, if that site is already a PR6, then your link ain't gonna help much. It would also make a difference if your associate was targeting SERPs such that it is hard to do well with less than a PR6 (which is what that link on that PR7 page would likely give the associate).
Out of curiosity, why do you have to be enumerated monetarily for placing a link on a high PR page if your intent is not to sale PR.
If you really want to help him out, give him a link in exchange for one back to you.
Is the correct answer :)
Its very hard to get a 7, I can't think of anyone paying *enough* money to put that at risk. Help a few friends out for sure but selling it...its just bottom feeding imho.
I'd pay for a link from a 7 page but only if they didn't know what they were selling, hypocritical I know but there you go.
Yup, that's why I've never sold before.
> selling it...its just bottom feeding
Yup, but I sorta owe this person a favor and this was my easiest and most profitable choice.
> Help a few friends
Who said friend? If it was to a friend I wouldn't be charging :)
I sure hope your reason was based more for traffic from clicking on that link rather than the PR value. If not, you paid WAY too much. As NFFC says a PR7 is very hard to get. However, PR5 isn't that rare. There literally are number of teenagers out there with sites that have a PR5 home page. A PR5 link just ain't worth that much money if the only benefit is transfered PR.
