It's a one time fee. If I accept to pay it, I will be able to post as many as I can.
What do you think?
Does it worth?

          I don't trust Fiverr. I searched it and saw many gigs about guest posts. They sound too good to be true for just $5

            Fiverr is good, for what it is, but open with care. It's a way of making quick money and establishing yourself as a provider of quality, if you use it correctly. Used (typically) incorrectly, it's just one more way of undervaluing your own service provision and skills.

    Only way you will ever know if it's worth it, is to do it and test.

    You've given us negative amounts of information to go on, so I did the best I could to answer your question.

    What you've done is the equivalent of going to a burger store called '500 different types of burgers' and going to the cashier 'can I have a burger please?'.

    If you want a better answer, give us more information.

        I've just submitted an article to a pr5 blog which has 1.7 million monthly page views and 90,000 Facebook fans. 250,000 Twitter followers. And it was FREE. Just keep looking.

    I usually don't buy links because I just find high pr links with scrapebox.

    Do you have scrapebox? Its really a super useful tool. So many people think its just for spamming but I find SO MANY quality/relevant links using it.

    For half the cost you can just scrape a bunch of relevant websites and try leaving quality comments.

    I could even generate a list myself if you want, just let me know. I don't have a huge issue with paying for links but when you look at things in the long run, you can waste A LOT of money doing it that way.

    Hi, why don't you try Postlinks.com services. They offered articles, comments and contextual links services to be place on their publisher users websites. Those publisher website will start from PR1 and above. Maybe there's some PR5 available too.

    Unless you are a millionaire, I'd say that there are likely better options out there.

    What do you think?
    Does it worth?
    Look at it this way.

    Some of my writing clients spend $200 and above on an article
    which is guest posted to a PR5 to PR7 blog in their niche.

    If you're convinced there's value in being linked from a PR5
    blog in your niche, the $120 is 'marketing expense'.

    Only you can tell if it's worth the amount you spend based on
    the expected ROI from your guest blogs.

    I've paid as much per month for a sidebar link from a PR6 blog
    - and that has become pretty much worthless these days. An
    article within the blog's content is far more valuable from
    even an SEO standpoint.

    Hope this helps.

    All success

    If your content is quality and unique , you can post free in lot of guest posting site .
    If you only target on one site to build your keywords , then you might be get trouble from Google Penguin. It might cause you over optimize from one site. Try to go with lot of site which is most effective compare to keep on build on the same site.

    It depends on the quality of traffic that site can send you. Also, what kind of conversion. Do not expect a major change in your rankings any time soon. Links are not as important now. There are other factors used by major search engines. Primarily these tend to be connected to mentions in social media such as twitter and similar ones. Most search engines will assign little value to one link no matter what they tell you.

    Zonkow, there's no such thing as a "PR5 site".

    Websites don't have page rank: only pages have page rank.

    If the pages on the site on which your articles will be published and will remain has a PR of 5, that's one thing. If it's just a site whose own home page happens to be PR5, that PR won't help you. Ezine Articles' own home page has a PR of 6, but every article I've ever submitted there (and every article everyone has ever submitted there) is published on a PR-0 page. The page rank of the site's own home page is relevant to you only if its own home page is where your articles/posts are published.

    However, the fact that it's a relevant site in your niche is worth something. Linkjuice is determined primarily by relevance.

    And if it has a lot of traffic, of course, then it may still be worth it just for that purpose.

    But don't do this imagining that the "page rank" in itself is going to be worth something special to you, because that isn't how these things work.

    This. Exactly. This is the beginning, middle and end of the matter.

    That would be my instinctive answer, here, for myself, I must say.

    You could tell them that you normally get paid $150 for your articles, but you're willing to forgive the $30 they would owe you.



    All the best,

    What Alexa said.

    I'd only add that whatever you spend will be a waste of money if what you submit is irrelevant or fails to engage the readership. So regardless of how many posts you'd be able to make, the important thing is to get the first one right.
