Question do paid listings in search engines help with link popularity?

I know that a lot of search engines make a big deal lately about having lots of links to your site to increase your site popularity. The more links to your site, the higher your website listing will be.

I was wondering if I pay for a listing in goto and findwhat and whatever else, will those listings help in my link popularity?

any thoughts would be appreciated!

Hi Sunburnt

You'll gain points for link popularity on other sites not search engines. SE's don't look at other engines to check popularity they use their own database to see who's linking.

I have always thought Goto a good investment on its own though. However, now their minimums are 0.05 and not 0.01 I am not so sure - see the latest posts in this forum and the money making forum.
