    High powered backlinks are the quickest way to climb up SERP rankings today. Results are fast and you don't run the risk of getting penalized from mass spamming from non-authoritative spammy sites.

    PR isn't the only metric you should look at though. It's a decent indicator, but I've used PR 1 sites that have totally out performed PR5s. Metrics to consider:
    • Clean backlink profile: Get your links from sources that have not been used for SEO before. These sites would typically have mostly branded and URL anchor text links. Example: coolkids.com, Cool Kids
    • Edu and Gov links: Establishes credibility in Google's mind
    • High Page Authority and Domain Authority (PA/DA): Another great metric. One of the main indicators that a PRA can outperform a PRB (when A < B)
    • Maximum number of Out Bound Links: You dont want your links coming from a site with 50 links. Looks spammy and you're sharing the link juice.
    • Links coming from sites on different hosts: If you're getting multiple paid links, they shouldn't be coming from the same hosting account. Looks totally fishy.
    • Site is specific to your niche: A relative article is where you're going to get the linking power from. The provider should handwrite, copyscape-proof original articles
    • No sharing with adult/porn, gambling, hate, drugs, illegal, warez sites: No brainer.
    I have a ton of PR sites that fit this criteria in various niches. These are sites that I personally used to rank a money site, which I sold for 6 figures. If you're interested, feel free to PM me.

    WRONG.

    One of the biggest misconceptions in SEO. We've used them for our 10 years now with great success- it's all about how the link is placed and whether it fits your niche- providing they don't scream "I'M A PAID LINK" and thought is put into how they are displayed, you shouldn't be able to tell beyond reasonable doubt that the link is paid or organic.

    All the best,

    Now a days most of the websites tend to say they take a small fee to provide us a link.. and in that case there are high chances of getting penalized..

    I imagine you are looking in the wrong places. Any site openly advertising accepting paid links should naturally be avoided.

    No I have not seen any website who advertise and ask you to pay for links. But one of my friend used a service and paid them $45 for natural links from high PR sites. later after receiving the report we came to know the actual picture of those websites. I do agree some websites are not alike and they give backlinks without expecting anything like blogengage etc etc. But as per recent not by matt, backlinks are considered as natural only if they are gained naturally.. and I apologize if I have passed any false info..

    I agree with what you're saying- links must appear natural, I'm just stating that paid links, depending on how they are achieved, can appear completely natural if they are placed correctly and on websites related to your niche. I think it's far more important to focus on the placement and similarity of the link than to worry about whether it's truly organic or paid.

    I think it's worthy, higher PR, also higher value for search engines, during those links come from same niche sites.

    Pr isn't the only thing, it gets divided by every outgoing link on that page.

    Pretty much hit the nail on the head. If you make the referring page look real and relevant, there is no way to be able to determine if the links on it were prompted by dollars or a personal desire to link.

    yes you could move forward with the High PR paid links !! As @DiggitySEO has said I've been looking onto the previous replies and i think he knows what he is doing !! so @easycontent you can listen to Diggity !! And as far as my own views you can go forward with it, but always be in extreme caution as i have never done this kind of things yet but who know's try might worth it....

    Well I must share my experience of Paid links. I create a new Blog valentine-day-2014-wallpapers.com Blog & I purchased 300 Links for my this new Blog & I was also making links on Good & High authorized Blogs and websites too But Google found some unnatural and irrelevant links and I got a "Unnatural inbound links" So I must say Paid links are not successful :(

    Sorry you had a bad experience. Unfortunately, where you went wrong was purchasing 300 links. The person you bought them from probably sent them all at your site at the same time from spammy places, using a tool like SENuke, GSA, etc.

    When buying links you want to go slow and steady. And you only need a handful depending on the competition. Here's what I help my customers do:
    1. 1st week send a high powered backlink from a relevant niche PR4 or a PR5 at the site and see how it responds. If they don't hit at least page 4, then the keyword is too tough or the onpage is messed up. I'll take a look at the site for them to figure out what is wrong with the onpage. Most of the time its over-optimization in one of the many forms it comes in. If the website hits page 4+, then...
    2. Week 2, send 1-2 PR3, PR4, or PR5's at with branded or branded/synonym anchors. I look at the anchor text distribution and help them decide whether they're being to aggressive or too timid with the anchors.
    3. Week 3+: Continue until Page 1 at a rank the customer is happy with.
    If you're trying paid backlinking for the first time, try to find someone that knows what they're talking about, is up to speed on what Google wants, and most importantly, actually cares about the results you get.
