If permitted in this forum, would you please
inform the rest of us (of providers' address
and pricing) to accquire a one-way text link
to our site from:

1. A text links page within a web site?

2. a text link on a site's home page?

Mucho gracious

The answer is that there are so many different variables involved, that it is impossible to give you an accurate answer. Each genre is different, and there is a wide range of differences even in the same genre.

The answer is always the same: it is 42.

Whatever you think it is worth and from whomever you think might be of benefit. In this regard I let them link to me and don't pay a dime... because my text is better than theirs. :)

Depends on who you are buying from...

I think the right answer would be "a text link on a site's home page" A text link from a homepage means you will get a sitewide link. Every page of that site will consists of your link. It simply means the pages the website has the number of backlinks your website will gain.

A link from someone's home page does not necessarily mean that the link would be sitewide.

TS, link price depends on many parameters:
homepage PR
number of Yahoo backlinks to website
domain age
webpage PR
is webpage indexed by Google
etc...
So just telling a standard price is a pure speculation

The internet isn't for sale. When you try and buy a spot in it your paying to eventually have your rankings go up in smoke. Sellers tend to be greedy and they sell to sites you want nowhere near 20 clicks of your site.

I've gotten some infrequent offers from people to buy links from my site. Here is a formula that I have kind of developed over time:

PR of page * $30 / year

I'll take it! An in-content link on a dozen on-topic PR0 pages please. TIA much :) Will pm you the urls and anchor text! /jk

ha ha, I didn't think about PR0. I have never gotten offers for PR 0 pages since I never publicized my "mental formula" :-).

The price of the best one way links is the time and effort it takes to creat content worth linking to.

PR of page * $30 / year

That's not a bad formula, except I'd never accept $120 for a link from any of my many PR4 sites.

I guess what's missing is a factor for industry. PR4 backlink from a stamp collecting site? Probably $120 is a bit high. PR4 from a high quality poker site? Probably cost more than that.

Wheel, I agree with both your points...

I think the formula works better with PR1-PR3... PR4 and above I think would be worth more.

Also, industry factor would help... Maybe a 2.0 factor for finance, credit, poker, travel, etc down to a .25 factor for less profitable content like stamps, boy scout information, etc.

That is a good point.

I'd add in impressions. No one would sell a link from a PR4 page with 50K+ page views a day for $120 a year.

This days, when a site owner is selling a link is like he is selling his website. So, the buyer considers that the price is very high and the seller considers that his website is priceless :)

We use to sell links depends on the links criteria, mainly how much pr, and oout bound links, you are looking for, and mostly one way or reciprocal...
5:37 pm on Jun 25, 2010 (gmt 0)

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 5+ Year Member



A single link can range from as little as $1 per year up to $500/month and beyond. There is no minimum and maximum.

Typically the more authoritative and/or the higher the PR of the site selling the link, the more the link costs. For example, you might spend $500/month for a single link from somewhere like the New York Post... $100/month maybe for a single link from a site like Bob Villa's... $5 per month for a link from Bob's Blueberry Farm blog... I think you get my drift. It varies drastically.

NOTE The above are ONLY for example purposes. Not saying any or all of those actually sell links. :)

We do not buy, we swap or trade. I hate putting money down for links, would rather negotiate something long term.

I outsource link building and can get PR3 of $30
PR1 for $10 - all relevant links, admittedly they are not from the best quality websites, but it frees up my time to get the good quality links

- which I am always looking for ;)

One company offered me US $750 for one-way link from the home page.

PR wasn't the issue. It was site age and link text relevance to site content.
