Question: Are paid link sites worth the price, such as services like superpages
Answer: If they have a high PageRank and they show up in your targeted searchable keywords, then they are valuable. For new or old websites, the one thing purchasing a high PageRank link will do for your site is get it spidered quickly. So it might be worth it to buy a high PageRank link for a few months to get your site fully indexed.
I always check these factors. Does the company have a high PageRank for its home page? Does it show up in searches that matter to me or my client, I.e. keyword searches? As I did in class, I showed you ‘lake tahoe vacation home’ searches, and you can see listing companies come up frequently and in good positions. Hence, I recommended to that client that he actually purchase listings in some of those sites.
Now, watch out for link farms. People that sell weird linking schemes are to be avoided, and never – ever – link outward to a link farm. That is very dangerous!
