Value of a Guest Post Backlink on a PR 7 / 80-90 DA Website?

Hello people

I'm thinking of taking an opportunity to pay for a guest post on a very popular website (alexa 2,000) with a DA of about 85 or so and a PR of 7. The cost for it is going to be about 55$.

How valuable is a back link like this?

I know the Page Rank on the guest post might not be a lot, but the authority of the website is amazing.

Also I had a few more questions.

How often can I safely get back links with a similar authority without risking the Google penalty?

I was thinking of paying for guest post back links on PR 2 to 4 websites, but when I learned that a PR 7 back link on a real website (not spammy at all, well-known) is multiple times more effective for SEO benefits

    As per Matt Cutts, guest post is already done. I don't think it is still a good idea.

    Yes, it's worth something to be on an authority site. But I'm assuming your post is going to be on a new, PR0 page. And probably that page will immediately, or soon, be buried down a couple of levels away from the home page? If that is the case, I don't think a post is worth all that much.

    55? Sounds like a crappy blog. Why so cheap? Do you expect to get any traffic?

    If you know that the site is very popular, you can create compelling content, niches match, and you can expect to either increase your visibility or get some traffic - well, seems like a bargain. The actual article is likely to stay PR0 for a long time, and it's hard to say if it helps your money site as a backlink. I'd try to figure out wether it can work from visibility/traffic angle, and take any link juice as an added bonus.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.

    What's your excuse?

    "Guest posting is dead!"

    Yeah... keep drinking the Kool-Aid.

    PUBLIC guest posting on networks that have been PUBLIC (AKA You pay for access) for 2+ years is only dead because "the matt cutts" decided to log into it and collect a list of sites.

    It didn't take a rocket scientist to nuke those networks.

    @OP If the link sends you traffic, it may be worth it. What are the other guidelines? Is it a homepage link? Permanent homepage post? Random buried blog post?

    I have acquired several of these types of links. Once they have aged, they pick up authority from the rest of the website through internal linking. So, once it has rolled off of whatever page it is originally linked from, it will still retain some value, assuming it is interlinked to pages with authority.

    That being said, you need to be careful with these sorts of placements. If too many placements are sold on this particular website and/or it comes to webmaster or Google's attention that the author of the post regularly posts articles for SEO benefit, you may lose the link (webmaster finds out), or worse, get hit with a manual penalty (if Google finds out).

    For 55 bucks, it sounds like a good deal - so long as it is not a nofollow link...

    Everything you listed can be faked (DA, PR, alexa) so we have no idea If your looking at a legit site or not.

    You tell us, is it a good deal?

    Guest posting is not dead!! Matt Cutts keeps mentioning crap content, spun content, thin content for a reason. It's not guest posting that's dead it's the content that's on the page which will make it a dead link or not.

    I still use guest posting as my main link building strategy and guess what, it works just as well as it used to, so people saying it's dead are plain wrong.

    How can Google really tell from a guest post and a normal post from a blog?

    SHI* Content is the answer, spun, copied content is the problem. He hardly said it was dead, he keeps bringing up the point that it all comes to the content on the page.

    Until someone comes with some facts and proof that it's dead, let me know because I know from results it still works!

    Regards

      That's right. There's enough blog posts and discussion on Cutts' position to understand what he was referring to. Unfortunately there seems to be no shortage of people who are too lazy to read, or trying to sell their own link crap product.

    Pretty much ignore the first few responses. If the site is legit and your post is going to be on the homepage, then it's absolutely worth it and not even close for $55.

    The fact that you're being offered a post for $55 probably means you're either getting scammed or not getting the full details. Or the person has no idea what the value of his site is.
