    Default SpaceWeather - What is the deal with them ?

    The SpaceWeather is just a "front" site with 1.5 million visitors and High DR.
    As I see: offering both dofollow text and banner placements.

    Could you share your experience with them ?
    Price? Results? Any alternatives maybe?

    Thank you in advance!

    I think your best course of action would be to stop chasing ****** backlinks from obvious link farms and just focus on creating great content for your users and earning real backlinks.

    Just sayin'

    <title>SpaceWeather.com -- News and information about meteor showers, solar flares, auroras, and near-Earth asteroids</title>
    That sounds like a fantastic place to get a link if you have a website that has weather or space related content.

    One could also argue it might be a decent enough site to get links for general science sites, or maybe even local news stations that cover weather and meteorology for their local areas.

    Also sites that might sell the latest greatest emp protection gear possibly, or special homeowners insurance for meteor damage.

    But gambling? Not until weather is a major factor in traveling to the newest and biggest casino on the moon.

    I think you guys are very helpful.
    But you replies do not answer any of the treads.

    You do not discuss neither: experience with them, Price, Results, nor name alternatives.
    Please be on the point. Thank you in advance!

    The response have been and are on poiint.

    You asked opinions about links from a specific website, spaceweather, and opinions have been given on getting links from that website.

    There are hundreds of discussions within the seo related threads and some in the link exchange threads on why chasing links from NON gambling related websites are often less than effective. Some even say they might be harmful depending on the link profile and whether a site has a higher percentage of backlinks from non related sites, so suggestions to not chase such links are based on years worth of discussions.

    Whether anyone here has purchased links from the specific weather website listed, and whether they have very many defined metrics on the viability of such links (could be but not necessarily so) that many GPWA have not purchased such links.

    Also, it may be a bit soon to judge that, since the original query has only been up just over a day. Over time, other members that might have tried links from the specific site in question, may yet later see the discussion and provide more details on such.

    As for name alternatives, there are hundreds and hundreds of links, guest post containing links for sale here at the GPWA in this subforum, from gambling related websites, many of which are owned and sold by GPWA Members.

    In every single case, you are welcome to be in direct contact with those individuals and request their metrics and make your own decisions on whether that particular purchase is viable or suits your needs.

    1 link will not move the needle, so what you ask is hard to quantify.

    price - you can email them and ask them for prices.

    the other site i mentioned is doing the "same ****", which is why i mentioned it, fwiw.

    IMO avoid junk like this. it's maybe ok if links like this make up like 1% of a BALANCED backlink profile, but tons of these, and only these => ez red flag for any spam algorithm to detect with quite good success, imo.

    edit: for balance - it's worth noting that there are few quite overt blackhat "spammers" err "blackhat" SEOs on here, with a rank, bank ,burn and repeat strategy.. maybe some of you want to weigh in.. you know who you are..

    The cost of a graphical ad is $500 for 6 months.

    Experience was good. Got the short-term boost.
