Link Buying Services – Free :)

Author: Gab Goldenberg

Update: These are no longer being offered; I got an immediate response and booked all the spots. Link building inquiries with budgets for the service are still welcome, however.

While I’ve been doing online marketing for a while now, I’ve had little to do with the link buying aspects of link building so far. That isn’t to say I haven’t read about it or even shared some new ideas on disguising text link ads … but my clients to date and my own sites have been able to rank using Google-approved tactics. Not to say I haven’t done it on my own test sites, but I’m admittedly short on experience here.

Well, between Jim Boykin and We Build Pages quitting the link buying game, and my growing interest in learning how to buy links properly, it seems that now is as good a time as ever to learn the trade. Therefore, I’m making this ridiculous offer to the first 3 takers: I will handle your link buying for free, for 3 to 6 months (up to you how long you’d like the engagement to last). Considering that my retainers typically start at $5000/month, that’s a pretty good deal.

You’ll get my high quality link building reports – which are pretty popular based on the 1000+ downloads my report template got over just a few weeks worth of promoting – every month. Any traffic or sales generated from my link buying is yours to keep.

What’s the catch on this paid link management for free stuff?

1) You have to have a minimum link buying budget of $1000/month. The higher the budget the better. I will aim to spend as much of it as possible, obtaining as many quality links as possible.

2) You have to have the stomach to risk your site on my skills. I take no legal responsibility, express or implied, and make no warranties or any of that other legal mumbo jumbo.

The fact that my services are free reflects my relative inexperience with link buying as well as the risk allocation we’re agreeing to – namely my time and your site.

3) Your site can’t be penalized already … not a problem for most sites.

4) You can’t be promoting/selling stuff that I find objectionable or sketchy. No porn, pills, gambling, etc.

*) This one’s a star because it’s not a catch – I won’t be working through any text link ad networks/brokers like TLA so you needn’t worry about that.

Let me know if you’re interested – write to “gab” at the domain this site is hosted on (without the quotation marks around gab). You can also call 514-483-2535 and leave a message.

Update: Some frequently asked questions as to the specifics of the paid link management:

– Will these be permanent links?

Yes, they will. I’m not interested in monthly rentals. On rare occasions we might do a yearly-buy, but I’d run that by you first if anything. The point is that I like permanent links best, they’re better for ROI and that’s what I’d be purchasing.

– Would we get the added benefit of any regular SEO advice (the site in question could use it).

I might answer some simple questions or offer tips, but I won’t be redesigning your navigation (“site structure” or “architecture” for those who like buzzwords) etc.

– Will you be disclosing any of our website info on your site or just general info as you report on the progress?

I won’t be disclosing the info. If I blog anything, I’ll let you see it before it goes up so you can suggest edits beforehand. I’m not interested in burning the sites any more than you are – it would limit the educational value for me.

– The site I’d be interested in working with you on is an affiliate site. ┬áIs there any way for you to guarantee that you won’t be duplicating our site/offers, etc.?

Tell me the industry and I’ll tell you whether it’s a niche I’m in or preparing to enter. If I’m not already in it/preparing an entry, I won’t copy your site/offers.

  1. Can you give a little more info about what sort of clients you'll accept? Do you have restrictions, or will you buy links for any industry?

  2. I'm flattered that you should like to hire my services Matt. You and all Googlers are of course welcome to hire me for link buying services, though you'll understand I can't buy any links for G itself ... that wouldn't look good for anyone ;).

  4. Hey Ben It's been good and I'm hoping that the people who've expressed their interest can get mgm't/partner/stakeholder sign-off so we can get started in the New Year :). Thanks for asking!

  5. I shall keep my fingers crossed for you mate! I thought this post had been Sphunn, are you kind of trying to keep it vaguely under wraps? Or was it removed because were deemed to be selling? If it's the latter, it's a shame really because I thought the idea was really quite novel. Or have I got this totally wrong?!!
