    Today I was looking through my link profile for one of my site and found lots of deindexed links which I made through BMR. So I went through each and every post I made on BMR to see how many articles are still indexed.

    I started using BMR for this site from last January. So far, I have made 60 post on BMR. And here are my results as of today after 1 year using this service.

    Total post created over year - 61
    Total indexed pages as of today - 29
    Percentage of indexed pages = 47.5%

    So total 31 post are deindexed. I can't say whether google just deindexed only my post or it deindexed entire BMR site. [I think BMR site is completely deindexed]. Irony is that, the bookmar created by BMR are still indexed in google. So if i do query on google i can find bookmarking sites but can't find BMR sites.

    Don't get me wrong. BMR is still best high pr network. This is the network that brought my site to first page. But after seeing the result, I can say that though BMR helped get my site on page 1, I need different backlinks [as a backup] to maintain my site there.

    And as you know, BMR just use only unique articles, still it has got hit by google deindexing [with almost half of the sites are deleted from google].

    Now you can just imagine what would happen to other high pr networks who allow garbage spun content.

    My conclusion is , these High PR networks have a place in seo plan, to get that boost but to maintain your ranking, you need "Quality links which will stay indexed in google for sure".

    Yep, I agree with every point in you thread. You further also have sorted my brain out a little bit, with your last sentence ;)

    I would say that is not enough to make a solidified impression about the network.

    There are several factors that can come into play with this case study and at an average of 5 posts/month on a network with several hundred domains it's possible you could have just been unlucky.

    That being said, by making a few posts and basing your opinion on that, you've already made a mistake. Continual link building is becoming increasingly important since the scrutiny of any network has substantially risen over time.

    This is not case study and these are just my findings. This post shouldn't take as measurement of BMR network. [I still regard BMR as the best network out there]

    My point is even though BMR is solid network it still got hit by google deindexing. So if I don't build high quality links I will loose my ranking. BMR helped my to get top 5 position but over the year I lost half of the links. If I don't build quality links again I will loose ranking. [and thats the basis of SEO].

    So if u r considering using High PR network, be ready to replace the lost links.

    Yeah, some deindexing is pretty normal for most networks open to the public.

    I noticed the same thing few days ago. I have 300+ posts on my account and almost half are deindexed already. The boost from a month ago is still sticking - i kept the rank earned with BMR although they got hit.

    But yeah, we need an alternative as it seems.

    I can't get my head around being in BMR for a year and having 60 posts.
    I take it you were also making links to other sites (otherwise - -what a collosal waste of cash)

    BMR was a "100 snippets a day" tool when I used it (6000+ links in November and December 2010)

    Decent network. I moved from UAW to BMR - but I change networks every 2-3 months maximum anyway as a matter of principle.

    This is precisely what I thought when I read the OP.
    I make 50 posts/day on BMR every single day (automated of course) all over 500 words

    You mean besides Linkvana, Link Authority, HighPRsociety, SEO linkvine, ALN, AR, UAW, Automated Articles, etc?

    You should be working on building your own network btw.

    Expertpeon,

    are you outsourcing the bmr posts? or spinning the articles?

    Just ask yourself why in the hell someone would outsource BMR articles and you'll have your answer.

    So after reading the results i went and checked my BMR articles from 6 months ago. Out of 596 articles posted for various clients of mine 407 are still indexed in Google. That's 68% still indexed after 6 months. In my book anything over 50% is good, so i count that as a great result.

    The shelf life for these highly spammed paid networks is very short. Your money could be better invested in creating your own private high pr network

    That types of posts makes me scary. What should we do know? It gets harder and harder to do SEO job nowadays. Any reliable alternatives?

    I can't see the difference for google in terms of catching and destroying your private network or big networks like BMR, ALN, etc., so with other words soon or later the time of the blog networks will pass... until that time however enjoy your website rankings :D

    A private network won't have hundreds of pages of unrelated content and unnaturally high OBL.

    If you think G is going to give up on targeting these networks then sure, continue building. If you don't want to wake up to catastrophic drop in rankings, start thinking about a smarter way to build links.

    61 posts in an year seems quite low to me..

    Also, I think now, only theme clusters will prove to be a big hit..

    THE BIG PICTURE IS: Whether you use BMR and High Quality Blog Networks or Crappy Blog Networks, GOOGLE will still deindex your links and penalize your site regardless to the quality of the Blog Network.

    HIGH QUALITY or NOT ---> GOOGLE HATES Blog Networks and any paid links or any kind of link that attempts to artificially boost page ranks.

    AFTER PANDA 3.3, i am having second thoughts of using any blog network at all.

    Good, leaves more space for us, maybe I should also start an anti-private blog network campaign :D
