I just want to loose some words about Guest Posting Services that are offered here and elsewhere. I bought about 4 different services here on BHW and now I got reports for three (Ron.Rays Service is still not delivered, so it is excluded from the opinions in this post). It is not my intention to publically out providers and to take some guys the food from the table, I really just want to clarify some myths and make some experiences publically you might think of before buying guest blog services here on BHW. The Conclusion first: Guest Blog Postings are the new Blog Network postings - Difference: much more expensive per Post + no spun content. Instead of buying 50 blogposts for $50 Dollar, you pay this for 1 blog posting. Googles strike against the networks has risen the revenue of link building providers. Ironic... How do I come to this opinion? Well, as I said I bought a few services and all of them (which I got reports for) dissapointed me very much. What I thought before buying: - The targets are blogs that also offer their own posts, may have a loyal readership and I will get relevant traffic from it (short time as usual for theme relevant blogs, but still targeted traffic) - The blogs are real blogs and even would withstand a manual review. What I got: - Unique Posts - Postings on blogs, that follow this method: Offer guest blog posts, so you don't have to care about content and spread ads all over the site. That seems to be the deal: Space for links in exchange for content on MFA/MFAZ/MFE type of sites. - I checked the referrer log from my advertized site. Guess how many UVs i got from my blog posts? Well, the highest amount was 4 views from one blog. All other 0-2 (0 means, the link has even not been checked to work before handing out the report). - And on one provider: The blogs have been hardly relevant. And even the content was not relevant. Advertized should be a perfume line, content was about skincare. Advertized should be skincare, content was about scentend candles. - All blogs hat a BIG link in the menu, "Become an author" and similar footprints. - All blogs had a massive amount of postings without media and 3-4 anchored links within the content, just like from your usual blog network.+ All in all you should better go for niche lobby by sahil, who declares that is a network and does not market/mock it as Guest Posts... I really don't want rant. Money lost for bad quality links, I am okay with that, as it happens from time to time, but other buyers here should be aware if they are on a tight budget.
