    Backlinks is something I don't spend much time on and I think it shows. I have several hubs/sites on page 2 or three of google for relatively easy keywords so I'm thinking the best way to boost its position is backlinks.

    I really don't want to spend ages writing more articles just for one backlink .. nor do I want to subscribe to the '1 million links guaranteed' type dodginess.

    I've been looking on fiverr and whilst there are loads of those, there are also some that offer smaller quantities .. some only 2 or 3 but for high PR as well as some offering thirty or so PR 1-3 for example. These do seem more legitimate and have good feedback.

    I just wondered if anyone had used anyone on Fiverr to create backlinks and what they thought of the result ?

      If Google detects paid links, it penalizes you. (See their policy on paid links)

      Of course, Google has to detect the paid links, and I'm not sure how it can do that.

        I think with the people on fiverr .. it's not so much paying to have a link on a site as paying them to do the actual submitting work if that makes sense. And it looks like Google probably aren't that good at detecting paid links anyway

        "If you see a site that is buying or selling links that pass PageRank, let us know. We'll use your information to improve our algorithmic detection of such links". :-)

      There are places where you can get free backlinks though such as Redgage, Imautomator (15 free links) Social monkee (25 free links) and reddit, except that reddits a bit weird. That way with free links you're not violating Googles TOS. smile

        I do use Social Monkee .. even paid for the 100 sites but they rarely get indexed .. not overly impressed which is a shame

    Google (Panda) are continuing to develop new penalties for SEO activity that involves artificially generating backlinks.  I think you'd be better off writing more good content and allowing the backlinks to grow naturally.

    Organic backlinks are the future.  SEO that is 'acceptable' today may be penalised tomorrow.

    The other important thing to remember is that not all links are created equal. Search engines evaluate links and the pages where they are found to decide how significant or weak those links are.

    Search engines look to see if:
    -- the webpage and site are authoritative and generally have good quality content
    -- the page where the link is found is relevant to the search query
    -- The link text is related to the search query (but not so related that it was clearly done artificially to boost rankings)
    -- The webpage the link is on has a high clickthrough rate on ads, which suggests something fishy going on

    If someone's offering to post links for you in exchange for money, chances are their site has lots of links promoting different things, and may not have much clout. Also, their content may not be relevant to your page. So there's a good chance search engines may pay no more attention to those links than you do the products being advertised by pieces of paper stuck to telephone polls.

    While paid links are a big no-no, Google's webmaster guidelines and Google's spokespundit Matt Cutt have NOT spoken out against soliciting links from good-quality, relevant pages; in fact Matt has recommended it. They have also recommended that we link together our own content, whether to indicate authorship (if we generally write good quality content, then gradually we build up authority) or to cross-link relevant and related content. One of the best things you can do to help yourself, if you write in a niche, is to have a niche blog where you link to Hubs where and when the Hub complements and expands on something you discuss in a post.

    Some people game the system with paid links -- see JC Penny. (Which got caught.) But JC Penny paid millions to have links scattered all over the web, and probably only a few of those actually made a difference for search engine purposes. Unless you have moneybags like that, it's better to cross link from your own assets which you know are relevant to your topic. And, of course, the best thing is to create killer content which attracts links from people who are interested in and write about your topic.

      Greekgeek --

      Thanks for your thoughts on this. I've been reading about backlinks and I don't want to do any kind of spam tactic or take the risk of being penalized for association with poor-quality sites. I want more traffic, but the risks of using free backlink services don't seem worth it. I just read everything I can find about Social Monkee on here -- and it doesn't look worth the risk. I suspect even the free versions of these things can create more problems than they're worth.

      I'm still checking everything out -- I'm inclined to agree with you and Rik.

      About soliciting links from quality, relevant pages -- do you mean contacting a site owner and requesting a link ... or?

        Thanks for the thoughtful reply ... I personally don't think their are any real risks of being 'punished' for backlinks of any persuasion. If that were the case, I'm sure I could rattle up a few thousand people who were willing to spend $5 getting a million backlinks each to the Conservative/Republican party website and I'm sure many businesses would do the same to their competitors.  I agree they have different value and google may well ignore them but I guess that's worth the $5 risk for many.

        There are certainly ads on Fiverr I wouldn't go near such as those offering millions of links .. they are inevitably going to be spam but there are some that look worthwhile .. sometimes only offering a couple of links on high PR sites for example or posting on 30 social bookmarking sites etc ...I'll give it some thought anyway ... thanks again

          You have to be careful with these types of links as hubpages doesn't want you to be overly promotional. It's best to get organic links.

    Fiverr is not a place to get fun games or SEO, but it is a good job service media. People should use these type of site without spamming irrelevant jobs.

    I decided to test this and bought links a few days ago from the highest ranked person.  I directed said links to a personal page (not Hubpages, don't want to break their rules) that is ranking at the bottom of the second page for my search term.  The links are supposedly 200+ .edu links so we'll see if they make a difference. I'll report back to tell you if it worked.

    As someone else said, Hubpages doesn't want you to do things like this and I wouldn't want to break their rules now that I'm making decent money here.
