How to analyze the quality of bought backlinks
Moreover, it is important to see that different search engines differently react to the backlinks themselves. There are plenty of cases showing that. For example, a site didn't need to be promoted in Yahoo, but at the same time, it couldn't succeed without backlinks in Google. However, it's strictly individual, so let's move on and analyze the bought and rented backlinks.
Backlink donor site analysis
The main factors which have to be taken into consideration before the purchase are the following:
Ideally, the link must stimulate traffic, that means it has to be followed by users. In such a case, you will normally extend the link mass.
Website's topic correspondence
Also, there are related topics which accompany or go lock-step with yours. In such a case, you can refer to certain cooking equipment.
Sanctions and filters
If we talk about why combining donor site's domain with yours is bad, it worth mentioning that combining means that the site is available by several addresses. Consequently, the search engine will independently decide what site exactly will be ranked and how. That's why the pasted link risks to be ignored during indexation. Moreover, you will just waste money.

- link status, which shows whether it is available on the donor site;
- performance: general trust rate, Page Rank, and inner market trust rate;
- some services show the number of clicks, indexability, etc.
In this case, everything depends on the market.
Warning! In practice, donors' performance rates are quite often distorted. It happens when the service doesn't value its reputation. So, if you face such links providers, check their performance via other services.
