I recon paid links still works but in the same time google are becoming better at identifing them and penalizing sites.
Have seen quite a few web directories loose all its PR for having sitewide links.

Who said paid links stopped to work for one moment?
They always worked but not everyone knows how to buy links I believe. Staying under the radar is the solution. Is harder than buying links from 1000 blogs at once but it works.

Discretely and manually buying links still seems to work fairly well since there’s not really much anyone can do to trace what looks like a natural link. Link buying will be around for quite some time, so it’s mostly a question of avoiding the shadier tactics of SEO to prevent site penalties.

Paid links worked fine for me untill I bought a sitewide link from a website that had more than 9000 pages indexed in google and i dont know what happend but my organic traffic dropped down and my pages are slowly being excluded from google index

Be careful about “cause and effect”. That could be like saying “I fed a cat, then it died” and blaming the food, but ignoring that the cat got run over by a car.

If it is your problem, that’s certainly a vote for the long term approach. But I have mostly seen the guy SELLING the links getting penalized. Rarely the guy buying the links, so far. That said… buying 9,000 sitewide links will change the CONTEXT in which Google sees your site if those links are in the majority. Are your pages dropped from Google? or just dropped from ranking for decent words? type in to see if the pages really are dropped. My guess is that they are still there, but have lost focus and meaning in the backlink structure.

Man for the long term deal though it is not smart to go with paid links. It is way smarter to build a solid farm network that you only know about and be selective on the links you use from it. Think about this you pay for a link today and can you guarantee that link will stay up but yet if you own the site the link comes from as long as you pay your hosting and domain registration that link will be there. And if you are smart in your link building they will not be found.

Paid linking is ok if you just want to get on a friends Blog Roll. However, in the long run it’s better to gain links by doing a few of the following things.

1) Using Fast Blog Finder
2) Holding Contests
3) Writing Ezines
4) Squidoo and Hubpages
5) Being a guest writer
6) Linking out w/ a nofollow tag.

If you do all of the following listed above, you’ll begin to get high page rank inbound links.
