Just a few questions about SEO

Hey,

Im new here, but Im doing SEO two years. Just White Hat. But there is still something to learn about this type of promoting. So I have a few questions.

1) Have really autoritative sites like Backlinko from Brian Dean natural links? I can not imagine to get massive links like his website have. I know, he is popular, etc…But sometimes I wonder if these people are also using black hat techniques.

2) Is there any option to get Ahrefs subscription for better price? Groups on fiverr not…
