Many of you know that I make more selling links on my sites
than anything else. Seems to be a different focus these days.
Got an email from a large link buyer company, now coming
up with articles, full-blown articles, to put on my sites.

The future of "paid" links?

    "Guest posting". I've been paying people (sometimes providing good content is enough though) to add my articles to their sites for a while now.

    It definitely still works but you have to have good content and make sure that exact match anchor text is not overused.

    So how are they wanting the link displayed, in the article or on an existing high PR page? If they provide an article with the link in the article, they're getting a PR0 at best, unless your pointing some decent links at the new page that they are creating content for.

      Provided Paul's site is not huge all it requires is proper navigational links to that page. If enough pagerank juice runs through Paul's site, PR will pass to the new page in the next crawl and be much more than a PR0.

      and yes versions of this is the future of link building (not that other things will completely disappear)

    I really doubt it could ever be truly stopped by the search engines. There are so many ways to do it and for ever 1 person that gets slapped for it there's 10 more getting away with it.

    I'm guessing you went the authority route with your sites?

    That's my guess since that would be the reason I see why other people wanting to "get" links from your sites even though a newly created article would just be pr0 or NA.

    The paid links market has been very disrupted recently by two factors.

    1. The presence of fake high PR sites that cannot be detected by the .info command.
    2. The sending out by Google of thousands of "unnatural links" detected messages to people using webmasters tool. This is definitely worrying a lot of link brokers.

    There are always people who have nothing better to do reporting sites suspected of selling links to Google. Also Google can also trace back the links to known link buyers.

    I would think that putting up a third party article is safer way. This type of "hosted content" has been around for a long time, it is just that it had never been popular because it involves some work on the part of the advertiser.
