Let’s face it there are backlink building services online, and if you are a website owner, blogger or online business owner you may not have the time to build all those backlinks organically and manually yourself.  Now I know Google specifically penalizes sites that sell backlinks, lease them out or whatnot, but what about saving time and effort which may have you thinking you should Buy Backlinks to save you time?

I only recently was contacted about a service called SEOClerks, obviously this site is popular as it has a 4k Alexa rating and they are kind of like a Fiverr for SEO services except there isn’t a $5 limit on services being offered.

The key here is many services claim to be Penguin and Panda compatible and friendly and claim they won’t hurt or penalize your site.  Some claim to do this by setting up various profiles on your behalf, forum posts, signature type of items and others don’t clearly specify.

I didn’t purchase any services and typically refrain from buying SEO services in general but no matter what changes currently exist, there is clearly still some key benefits to your site if you have high quality links from higher PR sites and SEOClerks has listings from SEO people who claim to help you do that.

I haven’t purchased any SEO Services, especially I haven’t considered buying backlinks for years in regards to my site and I have been taking the time to leave every comment, build every backlink manually so I am curious to know how many fellow bloggers purchase SEO services and what you look for when you purchase an SEO service?

You can also list in “Want to Buy” to specifically broadcast what you are looking for if you don’t want to specifically purchase a service related to SEO or Social Media listed or want something custom tailored.

Have you heard of or used SEOClerks at all previously and if you have what was your experience with the site itself or any services that you purchased.  If you were happy with the services from someone you hired feel free to share their profile in the comments to and send more traffic their way, though I will make sure the person recommend at least has a valid number of favorable reviews and won’t let a link to someone who appears new or has a bad rating to stay linked in the comments (be warned, don’t promote yourself if you are listed on SEO Clerks unless your reputation can back up your claims).

    I don’t buy backlinks ever. I think it’s short sighted strategy. Any backlink that I post is the link that can give me traffic and has potential of getting clicked.

      I don’t blame you for not buying backlinks and I can’t speak if it works magic or wonders or not depending on who you purchase from. I do know that PR is still someone based on # of sites and PR quality linking in, in theory the PR could still benefit and increase from backlinks but rarely does PR = more traffic directly.

        You have no idea how multiple retweets from Triberr influenced my SEO… I’d way prefer buying social links than backlinks from website. Google still didn’t figure out how to monitor the validity of those.

          I did notice you were using the Triberr commenting system as well as your own. I do like Triberr and am in dozens of tribes, it does help my Twitter reach quite a bit but 70% of my traffic comes from Google Search. There is a clear benefit to Google +1′s collected on pages and their SERP ranking I think, but I don’t know if # of retweets/FB likes/shares affect their SERP rankings (they may, but I just don’t know or see evidence of it on my site).

          I say this because my Lenovo Laptop Giveaway with over 2k Retweets, tons of shares, still underperforms compared to others who posted about the contest after my original contest article published. I really can’t figure out why my original article ranks lower in the SERP.
