This morning I decided to check out the Link Buying Guide from Text Link Ads. If you click on that link, you'll find a how-to video that you can watch online, the link-buying guide to download and a checkout code to get $100 in free Text Link Ads.
The Definitive Guide to Link Buying is an 11-page document that defines the value of links, and gives you 10 Link Buying Tips that would be super-helpful no matter what type of online advertising campaign you are looking into.
In this document, Patrick Gavin discusses both the direct and the indirect value of text links and what factors you should consider when you are link-building. Even if you dont plan to buy links, this guide will be a big help to you with your general linking strategy.
You'll find out why you should never buy a text link based on PageRank alone, and what your number one criteria for making a purchase should be. You'll learn why some text links benefit your site, while others might put you at risk for search engine penalties. You'll see the importance of varying your link text (or anchor text) on inbound links... and much more.
Patrick also discusses site-wide links, deep linking... and even alternative (free) link-building methods.
Short but incredibly informative - definitely worth a quick read!
