High ranking WA member recommends "buying back links"? Thoughts.?
I recently came across a very successful website by a fellow WA member. I won't mention his/her name but I know that this person knows what he/she is talking about.
In the articles on his/her website he/she talks openly and highly recommends buying backlinks. I had a look at the recommended sites and they promise "White Hat Links" - "Boosted Google Rankings" and all the usual bells and whistles.
I was under the impression that paying for links is VERY risky in terms of Google slapping.
- how do I know which websites are being linked to?
- is Google imminent on penalizing the blog network these links appear on?
This advice is coming from a long standing and high ranking WA member but it goes against what most people say so I am unsure what to do.
My question is this;
Is buying backlinks recommended by Kyle, Carson and Jay + the other awesome folks here at Wealthy Affiliate????
Your thoughts please!
