Is Google losing the war on paid links?

November 25, 2008

If you’re not paying Google to advertise they won’t be happy. Google wants the entire advertising biz to itself and has been at war with other paid link services for a while now. But are they winning? A new service called InLinks promises to make paid links very difficult to detect and offers links for as low as $10 a month. Curious? I’m many are and already claiming success of their new link campaigns. One has to wonder whether Google is losing this war. Paid links have been around for a long time and many have benefited from the practice.

Let’s be honest, paid links are not hard to detect, but the fact is that many go unpunished by Google even the most rampant run of site variety. So why aren’t they doing anything about it? Could it be they just don’t have the right tools to detect these kinds of links? Suddenly Google’s technical dominance can be questioned. Why have they allowed it to go on for so long when they are clearly against paid links? Makes you wonder.

However if you’re thinking about doing it, paid links might be worth a try for short term strategies. Get a bit of momentum for your site, however continue building up quality, natural links, and always always content.

  1. Paid links are great if you have the money. But for us little guys it makes it difficult to rank against the big boys without a lot of work… sort of like the real world I guess. I just don’t think Google has the capabilities to detect paid links as long as people on both sides of the transaction keep their mouths shut.


  2. Very helpful information about SEO. I learned a lot from it, Very impressive. Thanks
