How much would you pay a popular site to include a sentence with a link to your site in one of their articles? Let's say their DA is 75 and their PA is 75.

It depends on the ROI i get. By the way DA and PA does not really matter!

I would not pay anything to list my website on their domain. Rather I will try to post content or maybe build blog comments from them.

Same here! Content marketing plays a vital role rather then going with PA's and DA's

I wouldn't personally go down this route. The reason is it's near impossible to track the SEO impact of this which makes it hard to price it as a service.

Also you have to put a lot of time into knowing your targeted keywords and tracking the results of ranking for those keywords.

The big guys such as HostGator may have the fire power being them to benefit from this but as a small company there's better methods which you can track.

I remember paying $1,500/mo for SEO years ago (non hosting related biz) for quite a few months and it never really amounted to much. It included articles, links, PR, and quite a few others.

I know a friend who paid more to some Indian firm and he got all types of bad links and before he knew it his site was much worse in ranking than it started off. The damage was sizable that he ended up abandoning the domain for a newer one.

1 link is not going to be worth the big bucks your going to spend. Focus on other SEO strategies.

Why not try guest posting and blog commenting instead.

Let's reverse this some. How much would you charge if you were approached and offered money to include a link to another site? Let's say it's on a 2000 word article that is relevant to their firm.

Well it really depends upon what ROI could be achieved from that website. Frankly guest blogging is a more better option than just purchasing a link back.

There is plenty of free alternatives then I would not pay anything for that.

Its a very tricky question.

SEO is mainly death with the changes Google made which don't allow people to track results properly anymore. (the results are different for every person depending on where they are, what their interests are, past searches, etc.).

What I mean is that when I search one thing and you search exactly the same thing, we get different results.

This is why its also tricky to price a link back to a site. The reason is that nobody knows what kind of value you will get in return. If you can measure the clicks, that is another story but for SEO alone that may even hurt sites because Google is very harsh on paid linking. So I don't think many companies would be interested to be in a page or directory where you get a link back because you paid for it. Google can even hurt the site owner selling those links as well the sites linked.

I think a better approach is to sell Link Ads which is different as they only allow a fixed number of sites to be in a specific position.

Also, an ads is also a backlink technically. So instead of having more ads just rotate them more. Pricing advertising will always depend on the results the advertisers get. If he gets no results, it was just wasted money which is sadly true for most online advertising today unless it contains high quality or is huge in quantity.

I know this is an older thread, but I figured I'd weigh in.

While I wouldn't necessarily recommend someone to purchase a link within the content, there are definitely instances where it makes sense to do so. As long as the link is being purchased for traffic and not to boost Rankings, then it's really just an advertising plug. I'd be purchasing potential traffic and requesting the nofollow attribute etc.

As for what I'd pay, it would depend on traffic, time on page, and what the users do when they're there.

Purchasing the link for the purpose of increasing rankings CAN boost the rankings depending on the niche and depending how much of a boost you need. The risk in doing it however is higher than the reward in most cases. I'd much rather create a symbiotic relationship where the two websites can reference each other for additional explanations etc.
