    I have been using BMR now for around 6 weeks and I am trying to decide if I should stick with it.

    When your posts are accepted it tells you the PR of the page they where published on, this is fine when they are first published but a few days later they move off that page and onto a page with a PR of 0

    This is not what I expected to happen.

    Has any one got anything positive to say about them before I cancel my subscription, I could upgrade my Dripable account or use some other paid services instead of this.

    Sorry, I can't get past this. It's $59/month for 5 sites, you can post up to 10 posts per day per site, so that is a total of 1500 links per month. You thought you were going to get 1500 homepage backlinks on high PR sites for $59?

    That said, I've had good results with them and have been using them since November. I go after mostly keywords with less than 10k exact searches and don't have a problem getting to #1 with the help of BMR.

    Have you seen any movement in the SERPs? Have you posted enough articles to see results in the SERPs? Those are the questions you need to answer to see if it is the right service for you.

    Fair point but they make it sound like you get 1500 PR1, PR2 and PR3 pages and the truth is you dont, you get 1500 x PR0.

    I know its only $59 but when you are paying for 10 other services that are all $59+ per month it soon mounts up and for that I can use many other services on here such as the EDU link service so I was trying to figure out if it is money well spent or would it be better focused somewhere else.

    Thanks for the reply


    ps. Some of the posts they say are indexed I cant find any trace of them..?

    I have my concerns as well, I have been using them for a month, that being said my micro niche site just hit page 1 today and my main site that is on a very competative term climbs up a place every day or two and I think that is down to BMR, but my god I have to put a lot of posts in, like 10 a day! It is hard work :) I will do a full review after another month.

    None of the blog networks will your links remain on homepage for long. The only way to do this is to rent the space. Once you stop renting the space, then your backlink disappears. Have you have a look at linkvana?

    BMR is the best blog network out there (as of today), you can't find another one that beats it so keep your subscription, but also mix your backlinks up a little with Dripable or whatever. Have you had any success in the past with strictly blackhat methods? Nothing long-term for me.

    Yeah, the way they report whether a post is indexed is misleading at best. Their system marks it as indexed if it is indexed while still on the homepage even if the inner page has not yet been indexed.

    On top of that, their index checker interface is glitchy, so sometimes it is indexed, but it doesn't show up. Press it a few times. If it still doesn't show up, send a message to support asking about those specific articles.

    I checked their site, so does the 99$ per month mean i can get links for 20 different domains ? I got about 20 sites which i could very well start getting ranked as side project for now. I guess they require good quality spinned articles too ?

    Yes, you can put up 20 domains and get links for them. Wow, that will be a lot of 150 word articles. It's best to outsource it.

    They don't accept spun articles. But they'll let it pass if it's spun enough. I once tried to submit a spun article and they rejected it.

    Many of these crap networks win people over because your rank goes up because you are on the actual PR page for a day or two, then it's off, and your rank slowly drops. But it's too late because users are convinced it's awseome.

    That's why it's important that you put up links after links. BMR puts up a maximum of 10 links per day. If you have the means to create a lot of 150 word posts, then that means at least 10 links on high PR pages everyday. Of course, we have to consider indexing. But you get the idea. I've seen homepage links on my webmasters' tool so I know that they're getting indexed while on the homepage.

    I can personally put up a 150 word post in less than a minute. So using BMR is not a lot of work for me.

    If you stop doing it, then you can consider it as like blog comments. You have backlinks on high PR sites but not on the URL itself. But with BMR, at least you were on the high PR homepage for some time.

    If real sources are writing about your site isn't that the exact behavior you would observe? We're talking about permanent links that cost less than $0.02 each.

    But don't you have to write unique content for each one, or something along those lines?

    this statement is kind of misleading, if you outsource 1500 posts 150w 1 for $0.5 it will cost you $750 + $59 month, I have no time to write 50 posts a day, or pay that much of money for 1500 links,

    So how much actual value is this? Being on the home page of a PR3 site for 24 hours !!! does that have any real value? If this was the case then surely owners of PR3 sites would be selling 24hour links.

    I am seeing a lot of dancing at the moment and I think this is possibly the cause, my posts are appearing on good PR pages for 24/48hours, I am getting a temporary boost then after it slips to another page with PR0 my sites drops again.

    I cant 100% prove this is the case because I am not just using BMR so this could be due to other factors.

    Again, that's why you have to continuously build links on BMR. This way, you can replace the homepage links everyday.

    Add that to the fact that they're contextual and that they don't look spammy at all and it's a good ADDITION to any link building strategy.

    Again, this is provided that you have the time to write the posts.

    Actually, you can use spun content provided that they're readable and that they're really unique. I suggest spinning sentences in addition to words as well. Spend some time spinning words and sentences of a high-quality 500 word article and you have virtually an unlimited source of 150 word posts. Mix and match paragraphs for more variety. Stick in an original paragraph every now and then.

    The limit is to protect you and the network. I for one appreciate that. It can also help you keep up the link on the homepage longer.

    There is usually a catch with everything. But that is how the world works. Everyone wants to rank on the page 1 or home page. Now you have had your chance with your money. Now it is someone else's turn. If you would like to regain your position, pay another 59$. But you do get a load of links don't you.
