I'm new to this game. I would like to create a blog and grow it in a fast way, get a lot of traffic, a high ranking on search engines and so on.
I have read a lot of articles about backlinks and made a little research on SemRush for a few competitor websites in my niche, but I can't seem to understand how they are getting so many backlinks in a short period of time.
I have also seen that there is a possibility to buy backlinks. However, everyone says "don't buy backlinks", but they seem to be doing so. The numbers don't add up, it's impossible to get tons of backlinks through the classic manual process (there is no other way, unfortunately).
I would like to know what your opinion is about buying backlinks and what type of links should one buy without affecting the blog.
