    I was going through one of our competitors and they're getting quite a few links from this network.

    Can someone identify which network this site belongs to?

    The content and links seem to be random. And the whole network is too huge to belong to just one person.


    Any feedback is appreciated.

    I feel sure that the owner of this fine flog network will probably not claim his or her handiwork. I don't say this to be mean but I say this because I have noticed that these networks are one of the many dirty secrets most would like to keep.

    And I'll be watching this thread as it links to one of my competitors.

    I don't think it's SEOlinkvine or MyArticleNetwork

    What are they using to generate content? I bet it's something custom.

    It looks like LinkVana style.

    Ya, I think it is LinkVana too (I haven't used them though) I know it's not BuildMyRank, SEOLinkvine, NichePressPlatinum, or My Article Network.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    I'll checkout LinkVana and see if I can get any info.

    The reason why I posted the link is because I'm interested in joining this network. The posted site doesn't have any SEO value or PPC ads. It's just part of one massive network.

    I'm not going to post any other sites in the network. But it seems the linking sites are too random and all over the world. So I'm pretty much sure this is a paid network and not one belongs to a single person.

    The content appears to be totally random as well. It seems like most of the posts are auto-approved.

    It does look like linkvana.

    FYI, I quit using linkvana about a year ago when I found the posts were no longer ranking in G. Searching for post titles or any text strings and the posts were nowhere to be found. Looked like they figured out the footprint and deindexed the sites.

    IF your example is linkvana, maybe they solved footprint problem. Search for titles or text strings from various posts on that site and they do rank.

    Or maybe the example you listed just hasn't been sniffed out by G yet.

    Have you/can you search some titles/text from posts on some of the OTHER suspect sites your competitor is listed on to see if they also rank ok?
