    Just a quick question before I launch my website..

    Are backlinks legal? We offer them in our web building service and do not want to launch our website if they are not.

    Consisting of 500 profile backlinks and 500 blog comment backlinks = 1000 links

    Need an answer soon as we launch on Monday

    What do you mean? You’re not gonna get arrested for making some links lol. It sounds like the kind of research / expertise you should have nailed down well in advance to launching a service that you’re going to sell to the public?

    We know it is a simple SEO service to rank websites higher but we just wanted to make sure as there are mixed messages on them.

    Hey there,

    Building links isn’t illegal, no, but keep in mind that building bad quality links can be permanently detrimental to the website that you build them for.

    So as long as you’re creating high quality links, there’s no problem!

    Good luck with your new venture.

    We can also drip feed websites constantly so it appears more natural strengthening the domains position and ranking it higher.

    If you’re asking this question then I have serious concerns about your SEO practises in general.

    I’d highly recommend you do some thorough research on the topic BEFORE you start accepting payment from any business as they won’t be happy with you if you do the wrong thing to their web presence and business and could hold you financially liable for losses (or perceived losses).

    We have used these for various websites with outstanding results but never to the general public which is why I have asked.

    Building poor backlinks is not detrimental to your website. If it was I would pay a guy $1 p/h overseas to spam the porn/gambling/ and any other web directory with poor feedback to ruin my competition.

    You can get into trouble if you put reciprocals on your website to other websites that have been banned by google. Remember a website might be a PR6 now but could become a banned website down the track.

    Hope this helps, and would love to discuss.

    Backlinks are not illegal. If you do them yourself use google toolbar and see what PR they are, especially if you plan on paying for them!

    Hope this helps!

    $50 for 1000 crappy Xrumer links is too much. Shouldn’t pay more than $5 for that…

    Also if your doing this for other people be careful, a lot of these services create links from undesirable places. It’s not that people searching for whatever the product or service is that are going to see it but when you give the client a report with all the links I bet they arn’t going to be too thrilled when they get links from tranny porn sites.

    Good luck!

    I don’t want this to come across as rude, and I’m not sure if this has occurred to you or anyone else… But I would have expected that if you were offering this service to paying customers that you’d know all the answers to these sorts of questions inside and out?

    I think that you need to be very VERY careful.

    If your customers knew that you were offering 1000 backlinks or whatever, and at the same time were asking advice from SEO experts if it was ok to do this or that, don’t you think they’d be peeved off that you’re claiming to offer a professional SEO service, when it actually seems like you don’t know much about it at all?

    Now I don’t know what your business is specialising in, and maybe SEO is an add on service that you offer. But the point I’m making is that if people are spending money with you, then I would think that you have a minimum obligation to them to be able to ensure that your work (at the very least) won’t make their business go backwards instead of forward through dodgy SEO work that you can’t guarantee.

    If SEO is an add on service you’re trying to offer, then maybe it’s worth just focusing on whatever your personal area of expertise is. Don’t try to be everything to everybody, that way you can specialise in the area you’re good at, and to be honest I think people will respect you more for that.

    Put it this way… I always tend to feel more comfortable when I go to a restaurant and see that the menu has maybe 10 items on it. Because I know that those 10 items are going to be great quality, and they specialise in that kind of food. When I go to a place and they’ve got 50 different main meals, Italian, Greek, pub food, Mexican and so on, you can bet that the overall quality is not going to be as good.

    Don’t want that to come out too harsh but I think you’ve got to consider what could potentially go wrong! If you sell someone some SEO and their website goes from page 2 on google to page 50 they’re going to come after you!

    P.S. I think these posts show up in Google too so your customers might be seeing this right now! :|
