While the debate over paid links has been raging for months now, I haven’t ever seen any estimations on what percentage of SEOs actually buy links.

Do you buy links?

How big is this paid link problem?

But there is a difference between buying 10,000 links on multiple directories (even using software or outsourcing) and purchasing 5 high quality links from reputable sources.Sometimes a payment is the only way to get a webmaster to edit his pages, so with regards to paid links. I think the key thing to remember is ’responsible’ paid links are ok... Anyone else care to comment?

Is therea difference? It only takes one link to get you caught. At the same time, what if you never buy a link but an SE "thinks" you did. Anyway - I was hoping for more feedback on this one. Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one not buying links. I guess there are two of us ;)
