    Anyone using or has used Synnd before? I am not sure whether to stay on with them or not.... perhaps I just have not used the service properly or to it's fullest, I have over 6000 credits and not sure what to do with them all, because to be honest I have not seen too many great results (and yes I understand that it takes time for the social proof and all that to kick in).

    My question is could I be making better use of the ninety seven bucks per month. I have seen some BHW offers that look great, example the VPS solution that includes SENuke, Best Spinner, Scrape Box etc Would it be more beneficial to switch to that service or something else. What would you guys recommend?

    My Synnd service renews on Tuesday so if I need to switxh to something, then I pretty much have 2 days to cancel.

    Thanks in advance, this is my first thread and I look forward to your responses.

    I have been using synnd for over a year with good success. I suppose it boils down to what you consider a result. What do you consider a good result from Synnd to be?

    For me it has been good in building social proof which causes people to stick on my pages longer which causes my rank to climb. I also use it to get indexed quickly by driving a spike of traffic to my new pages which also seems to have a positive effect on my rankings.

    What are you using a measuring stick here?

    I have had some traffic, some improved rankings, I guess that the social proof and quality of where the bookmarks and comments etc have been placed are not really relevant to the content that I have posted. I know a backlink is a backlink and that counts towards search engine rankings. Perhaps I am not using the service as efficiently as I should.

    Hello-

    I was actually in the process of registering for this community when I saw your posts about SYNND. In full disclosure, I am a member of the leadership team for Social Media Science, the owner of SYNND.

    MRBEEJ...

    We are all aware that the online world is changing rapidly. Social metrics, including Social Buzz, have become increasingly important as a ranking factor. Over the last two years, we have done immense testing on this, and it confirms why SYNND was built in the first place. This is the future...actually the present :)

    You mentioned a number of other products/services, but they are just distribution/bookmarking related tools. They cannot give you the promotional boost that is obtained with the Social Buzz that SYNND offers. SYNND is also a distribution system, but the thing that separates it the most is that it is the only true Social Buzz engine in the market, certainly the only one that spans anything with a URL.

    This was just recognized by TopSEOs, who awarded SYNND with their inaugural, top Content Distribution system award, including #1 in Social Buzz. This new category will be up on March 1.

    Regardless, the only thing that matters is whether you gain value, right? Let me offer a few thoughts on how to make your success even better. Given space, I will hit on some key points as I cannot go into everything.

    I fully agree with some of the comments that have already been made. It does take some time, and that is largely driven by the competitive nature of your niche. There are tools out there, free or inexpensive, that can assist with keyword tracking. Another question is how good is the keyword research that you have done? In targeting a niche, this is where to start. If you have not spent time enough time doing this, than it would be helpful to back the train up a bit. There are tools that can help, as well as access to Google adwords (would multiply their results by 25% to get a better estimate). Once you have done this and can garner improved rankings, it comes down to the nature of the content itself. There are also a lot of other factors such as how interesting the content is, does it address the 3Es? Is it Educational, Enlightening, and Entertaining? There are also some tools to assist with making your blog posts more SEO friendly, such as SEO Pressor (WP plug in).

    The last suggestion is that when you are not ranking well, add a piece of content. Still not ranking, add a piece of content. And so on.

    We have some of the world's top online marketers, SEO firms, etc. using SYNND with great results, so it sounds like we just need to help you with some additional training and strategies. Every week starting this Thursday at 9 EST (you should have gotten an e-mail about this), we will offer free, live assistance to SYNND members via webinar. We will cover matters related to improving your effectiveness with SYNND to strategies that cover online marketing in general (content, Google, social networks, etc.). I think that this would be very helpful to all members. Q&A will also be available, and questions that we do not get to on the webinar will have an answer posted on the site within days of the webinar's conclusion. Our company charges a lot for strategy development with external clients, but this is free for SYNND members. We want you to be successful.

    Also, we have a number of new modules that will start to be released over the next month or so, including some related to Facebook, which should be HUGE. We will cover that on our webinar on the 24th.

    Feel free to reply with any further questions or thoughts and I will respond as soon as I can. Thanks.

    I recently came across a posting about Synnd at $7 Freelance,

    http://www.7freelance.com/social-marketing/synnd-1037.html

    offering 500 free memberships to Synnd Lite.

    Unfortunately, by the time I discovered the link, the free memberships is no longer available because your site says 0 of 500 Synnd lite available.
    How often do you do you offer Synnd Lite for free?

    Should I optin to be put on waiting list?

    Excellent thank you so much for the breakdown and useful tips, I will try some of these tactics that you mentioned. I have not had a chance to checkout the FB module as of yet and will do so this week.
