Duz-

I found out some sites that ask for some hundreds of $$$ for placing our link on a relevant site with High Page Rank. They limit the quantity of links for example 5 links on a PR6 page. So this way the PR defintely passes but

1)what if google identifies such activity?

2) Do we get any benefit out of this underground procesS?

No Textlinkbrokers is not a link farm.  It is quite a well run organisation that 'brokers' text links between those that want to sell them and those that want to buy them. Textlinkbrokers act like stock brokers and just take a commission for matching buyer and seller.  There are other good text link brokers too like Text Link Ads http://www.text-link-ads.com

To summarize you question, is it a good idea to buy text links?

It can be :)

As you would expect it depends on the quality and relevance of the link. You can expect problems if you:

Buy links on sites that are selling links to adult, pharmacy or gambling sites.
Buy links on pages with more than 10 links.
Buy links on completely unrelated websites.
Buy too many site wide links.
If you don't vary your anchor text.

It is essential to get away from the mind set of buying text links for PR or to replace a link building campaign.

The way I look at it is text links are a form of advertising and it is in that context that, if required, I buy them for clients.

>Buy too many site wide links.

Site wide links or 'run of site' links are outbound links to the same site that are placed on every page of a site.

The main difference is that link farms give you no control over who links to you and to whom you link.

>You mean we shouldn't buy Links or do LE for PR?

I am not saying you shouldn't do it. I am saying it is better not to think about it i.e. take it into consideration as a priority.
