Hi,

I've found out several marketplace where to buy links in newspapers with for example Domain rating of 72, domain authority 87 or trust flow 75.

Is secure to buy this links without a penalty from Google, until I know, is penalized both buy and sell and very easy locate this websites, only you have to register and see the websites that is selling links...

Has anyone used this type of services and what is his experience.

Thanks

in my opinion, "buying links" can never be something good.

For the simple reason that it's unnatural.

I have to disagree. Buying links is highly beneficial - even financially rewarding - to those selling the service. For buyers it can be a real lose - lose proposition.

The metrics mentioned are not useful. I have not ever used such services and would hit the back button if I somehow got to the point where I could get the information you have.

If you have a chance to get a backlink that will send a lot of traffic to your site, it could be worth doing so.
