    I have my aln providers but in the last weeks/days there is no movement and my rankings seems to drop all the time.

    anybody experienced the same ?

    Stay away from them. You are far more likely to get your site into an algorithm penalty using ALN and if you have used them a lot, you may be sitting in that penalty already for a long time.

    There are lots of ways to build back link my friend, fortunately for me i didn't use a lot of this network in my link building campaigns. In fact, the blog deindex was actually a blessing for me, i now sit on the first page of google (position 4 to 7) for my keywords and making $$$$ while others are crying.

    There is no point using this site anymore because everything related to it is dead and gone.

    I would not touch ALN blasts for at least 6-12 months. They are too high on Google's radar atm.

    ALN may not be dead yet, but they're definitely not effective like they once were.

    Dead in terms of blogs? No. They still have a vast userbase and that will always build their numbers back pretty quickly.

    However, in terms of effectiveness, they are nowhere near what they were. Whoever you are subscribed to, cancel. At the very least, don't touch ALN at all.

    Nobody is going to invest their own blogs back into ALN. They killed over 10,000 good domains.

    For time being, avoid any sort of Private Network Blog unless you decide to make a personal network for yourself.

    Yes, they are dead now.

    Use some other networks, which are really private..

    I've mentioned this before, but one of the big problems for BMR was the SEO hosting.

    ALN's problem is the use of tokens and unique identifiers. Blog networks are stronger than ever, why do you think Google is on a witch hunt?

    Personal experience. I have clients who have been going straight to the top for many keywords. Most of them are former BMR or ALN users and said they've tried a lot of things and nothing has been working. I can get many of them results in less than 3 days.

    ALN is history because they were too greedy.
