Did some research for one way permanent links services and found the following.
The products that are being offered contain:
1) directory links
2) commenting
3) article submission
4) forum signatures and profiles (plus other sites profiles)
5) social bookmark sites
6) blog reviews
7) hosted pages with your article and links on another site (marketing pages)

As I understand the most natural are blog reviews and hosted (marketing) pages with your text and links hosted on other site's separate page.
These 2 things are very similar (actually article submission looks almost the same: text + embded links)
You do not pay monthly. You get permanent links in text. Everything looks natural and you do not have to pay for this monthly. You can use your budget to buy more permanent links instead of paying for rented links.
These links stay forever so there is no "blinking" effect when your SEO budget gets cut one day.

Advantages of the blog reviews:
1) your post appears on the main page (for not a long period of time)
2) it really looks like review: blogger found the service and posted his opinion.
3) link to the post remains two pages away from main page (Home page - Archive October - Your post)

Advantage of the hosted (marketing) page:
1) the page belongs to a real site (lots of blogs are created just for making money from reviews so they are not quite natural in this sence)
2) domain of the site may be much older and besides it does not belong to any free blog system like blogspot or wordpress. So it's more trusted by search engines.
3) if you sell services the visitors of this page would believe this review more than blog post (just a quess)
4) no bad "neighborhood" reviews by my page.

Can you help me to decide what is better?
I do not take into cosideration the industry of the sites (they are all not link farms, not adult or spammy sites - just regular, natural sites)
So what would you choose if you had an idea to contact some sites (instead of bloggers) and ask them to host my page there?

A good rule of thumb is to stay away from anything that "looks like" anything. It either is or it isn't and the truth always comes out eventually.

These links stay forever so there is no "blinking" effect when your SEO budget gets cut one day.

Don't be so sure. There seems to be a lot of people out there who sell "permanent links" until they run out of space, and then sell the site to someone else. The new site owner has no legal obligation to keep your links in place in almost all cases.

Good point Joe. What recourse do you have if the unknown person whom you paid through Paypal decides to remove your link a few weeks from now?

If I were to do anything on the paid side, I'd be more likely to pay for a series of text ads through a broker in order to give myself some protection.

great information. i think the permanent links are very important for link building and every one should be more careful to build it properly. for me payed hosted service is preferable. mainly it is from a real and old site so the link become attracted by others. and there is no chance to make it bad
