    The Chrome browsing data is what concerns me because it is an obvious breach of privacy. There is strong evidence that Google is capturing that data with out users knowledge or permission. Of course last year's new TOS gives them the right to use whatever data they capture for whatever purpose they wish to use it for.

    I would not buy links from people who sell them on webmaster or marketing forums, but there is one particular forum I can think of which discusses some areas I discuss on my blog, and how to get those people who frequent that forum and have blogs to link to me is one of the solutions I have to getting myself out of a minor hole. Reason being: A few people who have sites similar to mine did link to me voluntarily and it has created a big boost in both, my rankings and my direct traffic.

    And that was that!

    Most of those emails are not really looking for a niche, just link sellers or ad agencies that send them out.

    I say again, a link in a blog post is better than a link anywhere else on a blog.
    Though if for just traffic, the link in the sidebar is a good place.

    When buying links from anyone (especially on a forum), do get where those links will be and then check to see if they show up.
    A lot of sellers on forums are from a foreign country and will place them on blogs and sites that very few people will actually see.

    This sounds like unreasonable fearmongering to me. Buying links is good. If the links generate you the right type of traffic. And if you know where to buy, Google shouldnt be of too much worry. Google comes, Google goes, but the right links will provide the right traffic for many years to come.

    I correct myself: Cheap never. Free ... sometimes. Expensive most of the time.

    but you lost me on the "free or cheap" part.

    Websites that have real traffic know they have the traffic--so those links won't be free or cheap.

    The only thing that is in question is just exactly what does google give them and how often.
    Completely agreed. The security holes alone should be easy to use for those with the right resources.

    Two good sources of links for direct traffic are blog comments and forum posts in your niche. This can be rather time consuming to do it right. In order to have good traffic numbers from the campaign, you'll need both high quality and high quanity. So, trying to outsource to clowns isn't going to work. The posts and comments need to be well written and should average 150 words or more.

    I have a few questions:

    Have you ever bought those types of links? How did you find them? And how much did they usually go for.
    You will need a good list. The 1st step is to either use scrapebox or search on your keywords that you wish to target. The next step is to refine the list to get rid of sites that are dead or aren't approving comments. You can also take a third step of reaching out to bloogers to improve the chances that your comments will be accepted in a timely manner.

    This is correct that nothing is "free or cheap" as there's always a cost be it 'time or quality'.

    In terms of forum posting and blog commenting, it's possible to hire a virtual assistant to make the list and do the posts. As well, a writer can be hired to make the content. Even if it cost you $5 per comment and the comment stayed live for around five years and you had 1000 of this links bringing you 1 clcik a month. That's 60k clicks over the cost of 5 years. As long as the math works out, you'd be getting a good deal.
