Cre8asite Forums has a thread on how to best find those paid links that are most valuable in helping your search rankings. BlackKnight, Ammon Johns says it best, "Publicised paid links are only worth maintaining if they actually drive traffic."
Ok, but what else? Ammon describes how SEOs are always worried about "staying under the radar" and how to keep your links out of a typical "pattern."
Google has and often does try to detect link networks. They all try to determine the true links and the valuable links.
Here is a great quote from Ammon to end this post:
Remember, the art of camoflage is the art of making things appear to be natural and expected. Draping your jungle-pattern camoflage nets over your bare-desert base really isn't going to camoflage it at all.
