    So paid backlinks no longer work with goggle?


    I have read allot about what people are saying about link building, and i just wanted to ask if this is true now after googles panda and penguin updates.
    Should i stay away from paid backlinks period?
    Does google actually penalize every site that has used paid backlinks?



    Cheers.

    No...Only the ones they catch.

    If you can't tell the good ones from the bad one, you should, and even if you can it's a risk.
    Should you stay away...that's up to you.

    Good paid links criteria are the same as the criteria of a good natural link like:
    1. a link from a high Page Rank webpage
    2. from the relevant content of the page
    3. Alexa rank should be checked before backlinking of the webpage
    4. the page should not be stuffed with links, not a spammy webpage
    After linking you have to track the web traffic from the link you bought and the bounce rate, also check the enquiries from the link.

    If you want to buy and sell links, don't focus on PageRank, but on the website's demographics. The buzz and traffic you get from relevant links is much more important to your site or business than a mere metric.
