    Link building: Is buying links from a trusted source a bad thing?

    No. But it depends how you are taking a link. The nature of link and type of a website decide whether link is good or bad.

    You see there is an argument to take it in house but clients respond well to the guarantee of links. I don’t think they would actually care if you were to say “we’ve spent 20 hours on your account this month and achieved 5 links”.

    What would be a trusted source, and links from what type of source?

    Checkout the link neighbourhood before getting one. It shouldn’t be shady.

      Please can you clarify what you mean by that? Do you mean where the traffic to the website being linked from is from location wise?

      Look at the sites on the same server, how many are deindexed, this is indicative of a bad neighbourhood

      Yeah..that and more. Sorry for late reply.

      So you also would want to checkout the number of outbound links from the URL they will be giving us a link on, and the domain’s existing link and anchor text structure, if it’s natural/spammy/over-optimised.

      What’s the best way to check if the sites on a particular server are de-indexed?

      Go here https://viewdns.info/reverseip/. Then go to google search site:domainnamefromlist.com to check if it is indexed.

    Buying links is still a great strategy, but the key is to tier out the path. Never have bought links point to your “money site”. Instead, set-up parasite pages on high DA sites that point to your money site. You may even want to add another tier if it is a high value client.
