    it will hurt you in the long run once Google found out that you are buying links

    Buying links is not good idea, it is considered a part of black hat SEO. Even you should perform strong and useful seo activities to improve site's PR and backlinks.

    Thanks

    Isn't paying for inclusion in a directory "buying a link". Almost EVERY SEO book that you will read will recommend including your site in a yahoo directory which is pretty expensive. If it works for you, and worth the money, knock yourself out got ahead and buy the link, and i just don"t get how google will "find out" that you bought the link?

    That is a good way to judge an SEO book. If it says that it is easy to dump it.

    buying links in a blogroll is ok, I saw a lot of competitors doing this and it works very well for them. Also, google will never know that these are bought links, how they could?
    Links you don't have to buy are those in well-known links sellers, not the links you see in simple blogs with 8-10 text links in their blogroll.

    I also don't prefer buying links. But if the site have massive visitors then it can be effective for traffic. If google finds it then it is forbidden.

    I would not recommend link-buying. Reason being that the search engines can detect that your links are coming from paid sources or link farms. They will stop ranking your website even if you discontinue the act. This will harm your site in the long run.
