NOTE: SAPE.ru links are not miracle links. In order to achieve success, you must have good on-page optimization on your site/webpage.

SAPE Links Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Links are already indexed in Google – by using my service I make sure the links I get for you are indexed. Of course, there are some sites in the network that are not indexed in Google. Not all sites in the network are meant for ranking on Google. That’s why inexperienced SEOs talk bad about the network.
  • High Trust Flow metrics – SAPE has quality High Trust Flow links which will help you rank. As recent studies show (if I can call them that) High Trust Flow backlinks are still and will be a major factor in ranking online. There is all kind of rumors on forums how ‘G’ banned this or that network – SAPE will live forever 🙂 … And to the disappointment of some ‘gurus’ SAPE got no footprint whatsoever.
  • High-quality metrics – By using my service, I make sure you get you the links with the best quality.
  • If you want to rank fast and bank on Google – these are the links to go with. You don’t have to contact gazillion webmasters to ask them for a guest post on their website. Wait for them to “like” your article and then that article sits on a page without any link juice.

Cons

  • Links are rented and you need to pay for them on a monthly base.

What Are SAPE Links?

Definition – SAPE links are rented links from SAPE.ru (syn. Sape, Sapa) the largest Russian link exchange network. Links can be rented on the home page and internal pages of the sites. Most of the time they are footer and sidebar links. In rare cases, links are placed in the header section of the website.

History of SAPE.ru

The network was created in 2007 with the intention to help both, website owners and SEO optimizers to make money. Webmasters make money by renting and/or selling spots on their websites and SEOs make money by helping their clients rank. The system is designed to work automatically, or semi-automatically, as well as manual mode.  saves time when posting texts and finding sites.

The name was derived from the French word “sape”, which translates as “hoe”, a hand tool of the 16-21 centuries. Used for the destruction of structures and penetration inside them. SAPE operates on the same principle, “penetrating the protection of search engines.”

In 2017, the network turned 10 years old. This was the first service where you could buy a link or sell a place on your websites. Sapa (as the Russians call it), is the oldest links exchange network that survived the time with all the search engine updates. The main purpose of the network was first to help marketers for optimizing websites ranking on the Russian search engine Yandex.ru. But very shortly after it was launched, people started using it for optimizing sites for Google. But that is by no surprise since ranking on Yandex takes, in most cases, a lot more effort to rank.

How Does SAPE Work?

Very swift but complicated system to boost your website’s ranking by using the power and link juice of other websites. 

If you are a website owner the exchange network combines convenience, simplicity, and efficiency: you just need to place a special code and determine the prices for links. Sape is responsible for everything else.

If you are advertisers (which are SEOs) then the process is a lot more complicated. First and foremost, you need to decide your strategy. Which in most cases depends on the amount of money you have for spending on the project you would like to rank. If you want to rank fast and bank fast, you will need to have lots of cash to burn. I say “burn” because if you are not experienced you will have to test with different links. Kind of trial and error which in most cases doesn’t end up pretty. But for this a bit later.

Ways to Purchase Links on the SAPE Network

Manual mode – you pick the links manually and make the purchase. The advantage of this mode is that you get to cherry-pick the best sites on the network. The first disadvantage is that if you are not experienced in working with the network (trust me, I still learn after 8 years) you are going to feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. The second disadvantage is you will be spending money on links that won’t work or it will be trial and error in the best-case scenario.

Sami-manual mode – you set a budget and goals. Where you set goals where you want to rank (page 1 of course) and then you manually approve the links that the system is going to find for you. As it’s trendy to say today AI is going to do it for you.

Automatic mode – you set budget, you set goals and the AI is going to do everything for you. I personally have tested this method twice and had no success. I mean, I don’t blame the method but myself. Maybe it works but I never got my hands on it working.

Size of The SAPE Network

Today, the SAPE Link network has more than 500 000 users and more than 680 000 webpages. There are other link networks that were created after SAPE but none of them comes closer to the size of SAPE.ru.

The Quality of The Websites in SAPE

With its huge size, SAPE offers a wide variety and quality of websites. Some of them are great, others not so great and some you better never met. 

Back in the day when Google PageRank was accessible to the public, it was really easy to pick sites and rank. We knew how many backlinks we would need to get PR1, PR2, PR3, etc. But in 2016 Google announced they are going to hide the PageRank Toolbar for public access. The PR is still alive and active today but we have no access to the toolbar to check how our website has been measured to the almighty Google. The announcement came roughly over two years in which Google didn’t release any major PR update to the public. So, since 2014 we have no data access to the PR.

Yandex has its own metric called TIC – Thematical Citation Index. It is used by the Russian search engine to determine the credibility of a website. Taking into account the quality of the backlinks coming from other sites. Different characteristics are taken into account in addition to the main ones. It is taken into account the “weight” of the backlink. The “weight” is determined based on the proximity of the niche relevance of the backlink source. The closer to your niche the backlink is the higher your TIC would be. Makes sense doesn’t it?

In 2014, a new Sape Rank (SR) metric was introduced on the network exchange – what kind of indicator it is and what benefit it will be, it became interesting to many.

SR – is ranking each page in three ways:

  • The number of unique (unique visitors).
  • The number of page views.
  • The number of clicks.

I personally have worked with all major SEO tools data since the disappearance of the PageRank. By that, I mean: Trust Flow, DR, DA/PA

Moz DA/PA – before the company was sold their database of websites was pretty decent. I worked with them for a while but once I started finding out that major backlinks targets are not the database I kind of gave up on them. It was a very short spell working with Moz and never good success with them.

Example of home page SAPE links with Moz data:

Ahref DR – Well, they were the trend of the day. Very nice tool, very good data, huge index of websites but many discrepancies started happening in 2019. Many people would report that they see backlinks being dropped in their profile but once they visit they backlink source they still can find their website on it.

Example of home page SAPE links with Ahrefs data:

Majestic TF/CF – they are my favorite SEO metrics. Because the index database is huge, the data is structured very well with different Topical Trust Flow information if you want to dig deep for niche relevant links.

How Safe Are SAPE Links for SEO?

I’ve been using the network for over 8 years. I’m yet to see SAPE links penalty. There are “horror” stories on a forum (blackhatworld.com) and Facebook groups. I can pretty much say the people who talk bad about the links are the ones who use them the most. And these people try to fend people away from using them. You know it will be “more rankings and more money” for them. The Internet still the Wild Wild West of today. And if we don’t take advantage of that it will be a pity. I can assure you that some “top gurus” in the Internet Marketing use these links. I know that for a fact because some of them are clients of mine. Top marketing agencies use them as well, also, they are the ones who talk crap about the network as well. Unfortunately, our business is full of you know what and hypocrisy. 

What is The Best Market and Niches to Use SAPE Links?

In short, any market that involves ranking for tough keywords is suitable for these links. In some niches, you would need just a few links to rank, whereas in others you may need thousands of links. Most people who sell service try to sell as much as they can, and I do the same. But my goal is not to sell you thousands of links that you don’t know what to expect. I’m not going to go in the regular marketing methods to lure you into buying my links month after month.

Projects suitable for SAPE links:

  • Launch jacking (works perfectly)
  • CPA websites
  • Promoting affiliate products
  • E-commerce
  • Money sites of any type
  • Buffers and parasites
  • Pharma (to an extent)
  • Adult (to an extent)

Projects that are NOT suitable for SAPE links:

  • CBD (this is because the promotion of cannabis and drug-related keywords is prohibited to promote by the Russian government)
  • Adult (explicit keywords are not allowed for promotion)
  • Anything illegal is not allowed (hacking, cracking, etc)

How to Use the Power of The Links in The Best Way Possible?

First and foremost, get the links only if you can afford to risk/lose the money. I don’t have a crystal ball and I’m not an SEO guru to be able to give all the right answers. However, I’ve seen it all for the 11 years I’ve been in the business. I’ve seen many mistakes that people do, and most of the time is after they buy my service they go out and start buying services from other vendors that screw up their campaign. But guess what? Then it’s the blame game. Please, don’t go on forums are read SAPEs thread from six years ago. Most of them are filled with people who never seen a single one of these links. Rather they are pushing other services to sell. Which is fine but not so fine to badmouth something that they have no clue about it.

  • Have a plan on how and when to use the links.
  • Do your homework and do the on-page SEO for the keywords.
  • Ask me questions, I’m always willing to help and give support.
  • Create some pillow links, web 2.0 links before using SAPE.
  • Try to rank first to page 2 or page 3 and then use the links for the final push.
  • After you receive the links report don’t share it with other people.

You don’t have to agree with me on anything. There are probably other marketers that know SEO better than I do but when it comes to Russian links – I’m your guy. Even Russian support uses some of my articles on their blog.

NOTE: Anything we do in SEO can lead to a penalty. Usually, the most innocent backlinks are the ones that cause the most problems. I’m not an insurance company to “protect against Google penalty” or to “guarantee that your website won’t get penalized”. I’m always available on Skype, or via the Contact Page of my website. Feel free to ask me any questions related to SAPE links for your SEO project and backlinks in general. I will give you my 100% opinion and truth about it. I do not try to sell you anything unless you want to buy it. In fact, I rather have you NOT buy anything from me if you are not correctly informed and educated on the subject.

ALL SALES ARE FINALlinks are rented for 30 days. A refund is provided ONLY if I fail to submit a report on time. I pay for all the links BEFORE I send you the report, therefore, after I send you the report it’s a done deal.

ANY Questions? Feel free to ask before you buy sape links from me. I’m available via SKYPE or the contact form.
