    Back-links a commodity. ?

    This is more of a question o everybodies thoughts on seo. We all know backlinks still carry alot of weight in ranking , though not as much as before and im sure it declines every year as google finds other reliable metrics. Ive noticed there are many articles on how to build backlinks we have all seen them . And they all say the same thing , competitor backlinks , blog guest posts , infographic sights and so forth.

    Ive notivces however now more than ever that everywhere you turn to submit a article , infographic or any kind of material which cost you time and money to produce and is essentiially increasing the value of the website you intent to place it on , everything today costs money , every submission.

    Whats ironic is that in the google guidelines it says that any paid link should be a no follow , meaning carry no ranking influence abilities , so it defeats the whole object.

    I just kind of wonder if google is letting this happen to make ranking harder , and cause more people to turn to paid advertising.

    My understanding is that Google wants to give credit in the rankings for naturally occurring backlinks - ones that were put into content or on a site because they made sense, not ones that were paid to be placed.

    As a note, you can get content placed on sites with backlinks without having to pay for that placement. The key is to produce relevant content for a site that is not advertising (nor native advertising). If unique, exclusive pieces of content are produced, and if the backlink you are including is relevant to the content, then chances are a site will take it for free or possibly even pay for it.

    Hey brad thanks for commenting. You have to pay to be considered in your submission there is no we will publish and publish it for free ( very rare anyway ).
    Funny think is googles guidelines say that any paid link should be a no follow. I once had a discussion on the advertisers forum where i was also told any website caught selling a link in any form is de valued in terms of what it can offer in ranking.

    I understand what you are saying , but i do believe you need to have a good network of influences to be able to get content posted for free, every webmaster and his dog knows how desperate people are for links.
    The think is for the new guys on the web establishing a network is a very difficult task.

    Natural links are great because of how rare they are, but this also forces many webmasters to opt for paid advertising .
    I guess anybody who puts money into their website is going to make sure they are posting, creating quality content so it will raise the bar in terms of what we see on the web.
