What do you think about buying links on sites with black and gray niches?

    I'm talking about placing links to your site in donors who sell articles and links to sites from black and gray niches. Black and gray niches: casinos, betting, pyramids, essays, porn etc. I'm not talking about posting on the same pages as these black sites. Or if the donor has traffic from Google for a long time, then Google considers it good and it doesn’t matter who it refers to? What do you think about this? Perhaps you are looking at the number of outbound links from a donor, and not the quality of those links?

    Focus on quality and relevancy. If you are running a casino or porn site, the by all means links from those sites are relevant. If you are running a family friendly or business site, these links will not be relevant. You still will get credit for those backlinks, it is however questionable as to how much benefit they will provide. When it comes to backlinks, less can be more sometimes. 100 quality links will trump 10,000 spam links any day.

    I think so too, but one thing confuses me. My logic is simple, if a site receives stable traffic from Google for 3-5 years and even grows, then how can such a donor be bad? Even if it has a lot of links to the casino. If the donor was bad, then there would be no traffic, or it would drop sharply.

    I think it's a bad idea. SEOs have long talked about the dangers of buying links on "black hat" sites, and gray hat sites are often only a step or two away from being black hat.
    If you're caught buying links on these types of sites, it could do serious damage to your reputation and your SEO efforts.
    So, I would recommend avoiding them altogether.

    It's all about neighbourhoods.

    If your money site is in a bad neighbourhood (casino, sex, pharma etc) then absolutely get your links from these places.

    If not, avoid.

    This is a very complex scheme. Google should immediately give two states to this site, a white site for a black niche and a black site for white niches. However, it can still rank well in Google. How then does it rank well in Google if Google defines it as a bad site for white niches? Or, after all, when he gets a filter for ranking, he will become a bad donor for all niches?

    For example: itechpost.com. The site has been steadily receiving traffic from Google for 6 years. At the same time, it has been selling links to gray and black themes for a long time. Why does a bad donor have very good traffic from Google? How can it work?

    I follow the Occam's razor in such things. Too many entities are multiplying in your reasoning.

    Not useful in my opinion and it will negatively impact your users if you will have links to porn sites.

    Thanks for your opinion. Here is the example I wrote above: For example: itechpost.com. The site has been steadily receiving traffic from Google for 6 years. At the same time, it has been selling links to gray and black themes for a long time. Why does a bad donor have very good traffic from Google? How can it work?

    How did this prevent their users if Google has been steadily increasing their traffic for 6 years?
