If we make an analogy between cars and websites, your website would be the car and the links would be the gasoline that helps it to move. For a website to be crawled by search engines and for them to see and give it the importance it has on the internet, it needs quality and contextualized links, which will act as votes of confidence to climb positions in Google.
Links have always been a key factor in the SEO of a website. Google makes use of both internal and external links to discover the pages that exist on the Internet and consequently, they are an indispensable element in SEO. They also provide a lot of information about how websites are related to each other.
Next, we are going to talk in detail about the secrets and advantages of link building and how it relates to SEO (search engine optimization).
Is it dangerous to buy backlinks?
It is normal that you have read or heard that buying links is dangerous for your SEO strategy. This is like everything in life, if you do it wrong you have a good chance that it will affect you on a negative way, but knowledge is power and understanding how to do it correctly will make the fear of that risk a secondary concern.
Why buy quality links?
Most of the manual links, links without traffic, in massive press releases, decontextualized… rarely index, attract traffic or derive strength, so they will not help you to climb positions in Google and will be a waste of time and money.
Getting links for the sake of getting them does not add value to the SEO strategy, so it is better to have few but quality links, than a multitude of links that will never be used by users, so they will be clearly artificial and will never attract future buyers or visitors to your website.
Google recommends that you create quality content and that thanks to this the links will come naturally to your website, but anyone who has a website and wants it to be a profitable business knows that this is totally utopian. A quality link is a scarce resource and like any scarce resource it has a cost.
Can I find quality links for free?
Yes, there are many techniques to get links, but you have to evaluate if the ROI of the action is positive. You can make a viral campaign of your company, offer yourself as an expert to write on third party websites in exchange for a link, try to replicate links from your competitors… but as you can imagine this is not very FREE, since it involves time, resources and does not always pay off.

Are links in newspapers good?
A newspaper, if it has traffic, is by definition a credible entity to link to any project. Newspapers have recurring users, fresh content, they appear in Google News, Discover… they are websites that also tend to have a very good authority… In short, they are recommendable websites to receive links for your project.
So… Should I always buy links in newspapers?
Absolutely NO. It is not natural that all the references that your website has are from newspaper websites. Having a variety of page types within your linking strategy is the most natural thing to do. Also, you have to consider that the newspaper should have content about your subject or your company, so that your link is contextualized.
Are links in blogs good?
Blogs have the peculiarity that they are usually thematized and written by people or professionals who like that topic and go in depth about it. Blogs are an excellent resource to reach a segmented audience on a specific topic.
It is true that a blog does not have, in general, neither the traffic nor the authority of a newspaper, so a priori visibility will be lower. But it must be careful that it has a simpler structure and a much smaller amount of content, so it will also be easier to be visible to the users who access it and they will be interested in the publication.
How much does it cost or what is the price of a link in a blog or newspaper?
The prices usually range from 20€ to thousands of euros or dollars, depending on the quality of what you are buying. If we talk about means of transport, it is not the same to buy a scooter than a truck or a porch. Although it is true that on average in the Spanish market and LATAM is usually, being quality publications, between 80 and 200 €.
