    OK, its time to shine some light on some shady/dirty tactics of the blog network providers on BHW.
    I believe others should be made aware of what Ive been experiencing because Im pissed

    I only have one problem; Im not sure what shithead is responsible. Now, most of you know that most blog networks dont give you reports of the links.

    ---

    My issue is one of the network owners is changing the anchor text on all the posts that had my anchor text.

    FYI, these arent rented links. It seems all my anchor text has been changed to some of the following kws: cheap nike shoes, air max 2013, wholesale jordans, air jordans, etc

    The only reason, I was made aware of this is because those posts starting ranking for some of my keywords. Boy was it a surprise to see those posts without my anchor text. I have made a list of these domains. I was hoping someone may be able to help me ban the provider from screwing other BHW members.


    Lets stop this abuse immediately. We cant let people rip off this great community.

    It would be really good if you report that Provider to BHW MOD.

    Thats what Im hoping to do. The only issue is that Ive used all the BHW providers. It will be hard to find out exactly. Im hoping for some help by diagnosing the URLS to oust that provider.

    I doubt this is intentional, I can't think of a reason a blog network owner would keep your post but just change the anchor text.

    That being said, I'm extremely dissatisfied with my last blog network purchase (15/15 deindexed) but it just means I have to be more critical of who I buy from. Buying posts from a blog network is like investing in the person who owns it.

    I appreciate your efforts & spreading alert signals to other BHW members. MOD will take care them and i guess these kind of providers will be punished.

    Oh I thought he said they changed the anchor text but not the actual URL. In my mind anchor text and URLs are two very separate things.

    you're right..if its just the anchor text thats being changed that would be pretty stupid and pointless.

    It was just the anchor text that they changed. They kept the original post URL but changed the destination URL on the anchor
