Are SEOs Still Buying Links?

After all the recent Google PageRank news and "penalties," the big question is, are SEOs still buying links?

A DigitalPoint Forums thread has a poll, that is asking that question. They break the poll down into four possible answers. Here are the current results with 42 responses:

  • No - I never bought links and never will (17) 40.48%
  • No - The Google Penalization Scare Me! (4) 9.52%
  • Yeah - It's Still Working Well For Me (19) 45.24%
  • Yeah - But I have reduced my spending just in case (2) 4.76%

Hard to tell from this poll, but it seems like those who have actually purchased links in the past, for the most part, are still buying links.

I thought I run a similar poll and just ask flat out, are you buying links right now?

Please take the poll, and feel free to add comments.
