    Default Building own network vs link buying

    If you have a budget for link building, how would you split it up between:
    • Buying links from authority sites
    • Building a network of your own for linking purposes?

    Considering the expenses for building up another site which sum up to maybe $60 in the first year (reg fee, privacy, shared hosting, a few articles) and considering that you could put in as many links as you see fit (and even sell a few to recover your costs), it would seem cheaper and more effective to build tons of sites of your own.

    Of course you would not want to rely on that alone but spend some money on links from strong sites - although they are not always easy to find. What is your strategy for this?

    I wouldn't want to link any two of my sites together. As for buying authority link fir $60 I question the word authority at them prices.

    Stick to building great content.

    It is going to cost you much more $60 in the first year to build up any kind of site you'd want to link to yourself from. Maybe $300-400 minimum and even then there would be little to no value in it.

    Well, $300-400 would be a good start to purchase some links to that new 50 page site that will be one of your lower tier sites in a network. Even then, it's only 2-3 links of good quality and I'm not even starting to count how much 50 pages of great content costs.

    Of course, you can do some smaller niche sites, but is a 5 page ''site'' really a website? Unless it's a niche like ''the only slot machine with rhino as a wild symbol developed by MicroGaming'', I can hardly see it being possible.


    Back to the topic - obviously it's way better to have your own network and outsource a small bit, from people you respect and trust. Outsourcing a lot is a massive pain as you never know how many links will be sold and apparently there is a whole lot of fucking retards who will scam you.

    I wrote all of this, when I should of just said ''building a great network of sites is the way to go'', oh well at least give this post some love!

    There aren't enough hours in the day for me to build, update and promote a network of quality sites, and I wouldn't trust some seo team to do any of the work for me. This is why I've chosen to focus my attention on one site only.

    If you make the sites purely for links then it's a bit of a waste of time and money. On the other hand if you build niche mini sites and do it right you can not only produce a source of links for yourself but also additional revenue.

    Be careful using your own network for links though - make sure that the linking is relevant, that you don't only link to your own sites and that they don't all interlink (ie: be sparing). You'll also probably want zero footprints within the network so different who.is, nameservers, hosting companies, templates etc..

    building your own links will take a long time, perhaps you should go to fiverr.com and get some help?

    Likely because he thinks it's a risky strategy but you see big sites doing this all the time so I disagree with his sentiments. I've done it numerous times even on the same IP (linking sites in the same niche) with no issues whatsoever. If you start doing this on a massive scale than perhaps you will start running into issues. Google just doesn't want you to do stuff that is clearly trying to manipulate the SERPs.
