    Angry Buying Text Links - Have I been duped?


    I recently bought a decent size number of links from Text-Link-Ads.com from clicking on one of their banners here on SEO Chat. I've read that having multiple links form a similar IP (C Block?) does not really benefit you in the SERPs. Well, imagine my surprise when I ran a trace route on all of the different domains in my package to find they are all hosted at the exact same C block 209.18.34.xxx?! The only thing that changes are the last three numbers. Should I be angry about this? Would I be better off buying just one and saving the money on the other 9?

    did the ad say "different C blocks" or something similar?
    if not, I say you weren't duped, but you learned a good question to ask next time..

    As I understand you bought 10 links from same C class IP??. There is a theory in SEO community that same class C IP would not help for SERP, even there are no clear evidences as most other SEO theories. Yes... you should have considered that, specially when it is 10 link from same place.

    i dont think so ..... my own experience is that links from the same "c" block are FINE ..... provided you dont have TOO MANY ....... it is NOT LIKE links from the same site which as webby mentions are probably of no value ....

    basically ..... i think 10 or 15 or 20 links from different "domains" on different IP's on the same C block are JUST FINE ...... as long as there is NO RECRIPROCAL link back to them ......

    SAME "c" block DOES become a problem sometimes .......

    like when you
    1) have RECRIPROCAL LINKS (ie the DREADED CROSSLINKING SIN)
    2) maybe if you have a LOT of links from it .... say maybe over 25 or 50 total links then maybe they start thinking HMMMMMMMMM.....

    JoeBob could you please explain what you mean by the "dreaded crosslinking sin"?

    Thanks,
