May 6, 2008
Before you start looking at links to buy you need to know that not all links for sale are worth it. There are many things that you need to look at before you buy those links. After all, you have to make sure that the link is going to fit your needs, otherwise, it's not going to do any good. Now first of all, before we talk about buying links there are a few things that you need to know.

Why buying links? Well, because the more links you have to your web site out there, the higher your ranking is going to be in the search engines results. This is because these links on other sites work like votes for your site. So if site 'A' has a link for site 'B', then site 'A' is voting for site 'B'.

Now that you know about the utility of link building, you need to know if it's worth paying for them. The answer is yes, however you must know what you are doing. First of all, you have to know where your link is going to be placed on the site that is selling the link to you.

It has to be in an area that people are going to be able to see it, otherwise, it's no good. Not only that, you have to make sure that it's going to be placed on a site that is related in information to your site. Pretty much what that means is that if you have a site about cars, and you buy a link to a site about flowers, then that is not going to help your ranking. However, not only that, but it's not going to get you any leads. Links on relevant web sites are more powerful and should be the primary focus of your link building efforts. While performing your link buying effort, focus your time on searching for website that you know are relevant to your niche.

Next, you have to know if the site that you are buying from is a quality content website. You need to know if a lot of people come to that site or not. Make sure your link is not displayed on wasted website like link farms or affiliates websites with no Google page rank. Most of these websites are created through automated programs and are spamming the search engines.

Make proper use of the anchor text in your link. The anchor text also known as link text, is the text who appears in the link pointing to your site. Be sure to use your primary keywords in the link (without abusing). Optimizing the anchor text of your links can have a huge effect on your search engine rank.

Last, You also need to make sure that they leave the link to your site up all the time. If they do not then you are going to end up losing money on the deal. After all, if you pay for the spot, you should get to use it the whole time.
