Buying Links and Bulk Link Submissions – Why You Just Shouldn’t Chance it
Link Building can be a tedious and sometimes frustrating process, and it is no wonder that many people avoid the subject like the plague just so they don’t have to get involved. But, unfortunately link building, as all SEO specialists will tell you, is one of the most important factors to any online marketing campaign and should be a major factor in your SEO strategy.
If this is your first time trying your hand at link building, let us start off with one stark warning:
Don’t ever get caught doing or hiring someone for buying links and bulk link submissions. These types of sites promising you first page of Google with 48 hours know full well, you will get caught. And believe us when we tell you, no refund will be given.
They might be cheap and work for a week, but once Google finds (and they will) out you have done this, well let’s just say that Google has a penalty box and once you are on the naughty step, Google can be very reluctant to let you roam free again. It will cost a lot of money and twice the effort to get Get out of the Google Penalty box, so when it looks too easy, Google probably doesn’t approve, so step away from the bulk submission cookie jar now!
