On March 31st, I was fortunate enough to have beta access to Brad Callen’s SEOLinkVine system. This is a system for both receiving free content to be published on your blog, as well as submitting your own content to gain backlinks. Being one of the first 100 people to use this system, I’ve had over a month to review the costs and benefits. My review of the SEOLinkVine system begins….now.
There are 2 parts to SEOLinkVine
1. Get Free Content
The first part is a system to get free content added to your sites. If you have a blog, and don’t have time to write enough content to attract new visitors, you simply sign up for this free service and start getting free content. If you have a blog through one of the major blog services, WordPress, Blogger, etc…, then you can enable xml-rpc publishing. This sounds fancy, but you only have to click a button and provide login information for your blog. Once that’s done, you log into your SEOLinkVine account and review articles. You have the option to approve or reject any of the articles that are presented to you.
If you’re concerned about SEO, you’ll want to be very choosy about the articles you pick. Every article you publish on your site generally has 3 one-way links AWAY from your website. You’re then sending your “link juice” to that other site. (Link Juice is an SEO industry term for the search engine influence passed around by adding links to other websites.) I have used this site for a few articles, and the interface is very user friendly. You can review an article, view stats about that article, and quickly approve or reject it to move onto the next article.
This is a great system if you rely on Google AdSense or other advertising for your revenue. It’s perfect for keeping the content stream steady and gaining long-tail keywords to start pulling in some new visitors. I think this service might even warrant a paid version, but if you want to get free content, click here.
2. Submit Articles and Get Links
The second part, which is the real magic of the SEO Link Vine system, is an automated way to get valuable one-way links back to your website. Link building has always been one of the most difficult parts of the SEO process. Where do I get links? Who would want to link to my site? While you still want answers to these questions, SEOLinkVine offers a new way to get hundreds, if not thousands, of one-way links back to your site!
You start buy writing an article related to the keyword you’re promoting. You then use their “article spinning” technology to spin your article into thousands of variations. Article spinning is the act of taking an article and adding variations to different sections to make the article unique. For example, you might take the phrase, “Review of SEOLinkVine” and spin it to say “SEOLinkVine Review” and “Our Unbiased Review of SEOLinkVine”. You might also take the term “SEO” and spin it to “Search Engine Optimization”. You now have 3 variations of “Review of SEOLinkVine” and 2 variations of “SEO”. Right there, we already have 6 different variations of the article. Now if you spin 20 different sections of your article into 3 variations each, you’ll have 3.5 BILLION unique variations of your article. So now you’re asking, “Why do I need to spin my articles?” Well, the search engines have caught onto people writing one article and publishing it all over the internet to get backlinks. They, specifically Google, compare these articles, and if they’re too similar, they only consider “the most relevant” article as the one that will pass the link juice on to the site that the links point to. By spinning your article, you create thousands, or billions, of unique articles for the search engines to eat up.
Once you publish your first article, you just wait as it gets published out to the SEOLinkVine network. At this point, you can begin writing your next article, because you can write an UNLIMITED number of articles! According to Brad Callen, this is how he got nearly 30,000 backlinks in 3 months, which moved him to the #1 spot on the search engines for a highly competitive keyword.
Like I said, I’ve been using the SEOLinkVine system since their beta launch, and I’m pleased with the results. You’ll notice several trackbacks on my review of SaleHoo.com. These are nearly all thanks to the SEOLinkVine system. My traffic has already started on an upward trend, and it seems to be growing every day. I will continue to use this system, and I recommend it to anyone trying to promote a new website. I have also had a few opportunities to contact their customer support about an issue with their SEOLinkVine Ranker App. This app runs stats to show your search engine position for the keywords you’ve linked in your articles, and also lists how many links you have going to those specific pages. The stats are great, but being in the beta program, I did have a few times that I needed some help. Their support system is easy to use, and the response time was acceptable. (Not super-fast, but acceptable.) It was less than 24-hours to respond to a non-emergency issue.
If you’re interested in trying SEOLinkVine, either to get free content for your blog, or to get tons of one-way backlinks, please click here. They have a 56-day, no-questions-asked money-back guarantee. Also, in the month or so that I’ve been using them, the price has already gone up once. This is such a popular program, that I think they’re going to continue raising the price until people stop buying. If you’re thinking about paying for a service to help you get links back to your site, you should move quickly on this one.
***** [5/12/2010] UPDATE *****
I received an email from Brad Callen today indicating that they will only be allowing new members into the SEOLinkvine program until 2:00PM ET this Friday, 5/14/2010.
They have reached their user capacity in just a few days and can only accept new members until Friday.
The part of the program for getting free content will be open indefinitely, but the “get links” portion will be closed to new members as of 2pm ET on Friday.
If you wanted to get into this program, you need to move even more quickly than previously stated.
*** The doors might be closed, but you can sign up to be notified if and when they reopen them. They do this to limit the number of users so they can properly support the new influx of members. Use the link below to see if you can sign up. ***
