If I was to purchase a Fiverr gig to deliver 800+ links from social bookmarks to my site - would that hurt my ranking?

Most of these are nofollow right? I don't have much experience with social bookmarks.

    Hello Bret,

    I generally build 15 to 25 social bookmarks to my money site. Yes, they are definitely a bit of help in having good back link profile.

    And i would never go for 800+ bookmarks to my money site nor even to my tier sites. Having so many bookmarks is not good, of course not sure how much it can hurt. But surely they wont be any help coming to rankings.

    Hi Bret,
    If you would like to purchase gigs from fiverr then please pay attention here for few times.
    Basically maximum people on fiverr complete their gigs with black hat technique.
    If you see their customer review you will get more idea.
    Do not look for quantity on fiverr look for quality. I was also planning to buy a package 120 high PR social bookmark in only US$5. But when i see review i come back from my deceision.

    800+ links in a go is kind of overboard. It will surely get your site penalized. Try doing it bit by bit, say 30-40 per day, you understand.

    Since most are nofollows they'll work pretty well. I've tried it.

    Don't over do it by using that. I know people who bought such services on Fiverr who got their site to be un-indexed (not drop in rankings, but completely removed).

    Always ask yourself the golden question, "Would __insert 'SEO technique'__ actually happen in real life if there was no artificial intention to do so?" If the answer is yes, then okay, go ahead with it, otherwise do not.

    Having that many inbound links appear all at once may negatively influence your SEO efforts. It won't seem natural to Google.

    You won't have much impact with those low quality links, go on some forums and find services that sell Social Bookmarks that are quality. I wouldn't buy it from fiverr.

    No, bookmarking wouldn't hurt any website, but if you post or do bookmarks with same Title, Content, then, its hurt.......

    Paid links have a greater chance to consider as spam by Google. Hence, I will suggest you to build natural backlink to your website.
    When you post your website link to social bookmarking sites then write unique description, and title related to your niche.
    Always put your link in the business relevant category, so that they could not consider as spam.

    Social Bookmarking is surely helpful for your site ranking. But do not do a huge number of back links at a time. Daily not more than 8-10. And try do high PR bookmarks. Hope you will get result because I am getting results by this way.

    No they will do nothing.

    Neither hurt nor help. They're worthless so are any other sort of links that has the word social with them.

    Not exactly. But drip feed links is very important factor for SEO. My personal advice, Please do 50-100 backlinks/per day to your website.

    It's safe and gets some strong ranking on SERP.

    I don't think that you should purchase links from feverr. When somebody links to your site google considers relevancy. You obviously want a link from a dental directory when you deal with automobile business. Getting tons of links from sites in a short notice might also trip google spam filter. Just make sure that you earn the link, not build or purchase them.

    Why do people always say don't build links all at once or you will get penalised?

    That assumes Google will crawl and find those links all at the same time.

    It won't.

    I don't think Social bookmarking is going to give you much benefit now, just create profile on some good sites to promote your brand name.

    Social bookmarks will never hurt your site, as they are not seen. Period.
    End of story. Contrary to the bunch of nonsense above.

    Do you people even know how the internet works?

    Once again, this is a product of not knowing shinola about websites or
    the internet.

    You just buy a domain and install wordpress.

    That's not going to cut it if you really, really want to know how
    the internet and google work.

    So many bookmark to one page ?? Hope they don't increase your anchor text density. Use only LSI for social bookmarks and going for high quality sites is recommended.

    Building 800+ social bookmarking links is really not good for your site. It seems like unnatural link building, which can hurt your ranking. As other members discussed build only 20 link but from high authority sites.

    It would be nice if the mods locked some of the threads... I'm sure we've already seen every variation of the one-line "yes, it's bad!!1" post.

    As Paul said this kind of spam run probably does nothing at all. There's constant flow of sites on WF that have couple of thousand crap links. Were most of them penalized? Doesn't seem so. Is there any change of them ranking? Well, ranking with worthless links is not very likely if there's any competition.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

    Since people can just search through different subjects or tags in order to find thing faster, spamming is increased, a risk that would not have elevated if social bookmarking users would only receive recommended links from people whom they have subscribed to.

      Yes Social bookmarking sites have more valuable in two ways that are...............

      01. It will work as your site backlinks

      02. Will play an important role for web traffic.


      At the issue of fiverr many sellers uses blackhat method to crate backlinks by the way how it is possible to create 800 backlinks for $5 by manually.

    Well, unless you are getting manual links, and you are paying $$$ for them, you'll be wasting money for a potential penalty.

    800 links for $5 or $10? Those are junk software-generated links that will end up in shady websites or directories or in fake social profiles, none of them with any relevance at all. If someone had the power to generate 800 useful links, they wouldn't be selling them on Fiverr for pennies. That amount of links takes hours or even days to generate if they are going to be legitimate and have any quality.

    In other words, you'll get what you pay for.

      Don't get backlinks from 800+ links from social bookmarks sites. It will heart your site. Don't use pligg social bookmarking sites. Use only high pr SMB sites.

    Too many i.e. 800+ social bookmarks will confirm hurt your site rankings but google will not penalize your site because most of them are nofollow.I think 20-30 social bookmarks are good enough but a large number of bookmarks on same day will be considered as spam so work slowly and naturally and also add sharing buttons on your webpage so that other people can also bookmark them.
    Remember never go for shortcut, always work hard and left it for natural backlinking and never buy cheap backlinks from fivver which will confirm hurt your site.

    well, most of them are nofollow, but I recommend that you don't buy backlink because Google always implicitly to track the purchase and sale of any valid Backlink. Google has also previously warned that any attempt to purchase Backlinks to improve website rankings are violating their principles, Google will handle the website from reducing the quality of Backlink at the website until sanctions reduce the ranking or worse is that website deindex (on the last update Panda and Penguin).
