    Today I thought I?d finally get round to taking my 30 day test run of the infamous HighPRSociety. If you don?t already know, HighPRSociety is a blog network of hundreds (4k+ according to them) of high Page Rank blogs (PR 1-6).

    So anyway, they have a good thing going and right now HighPRSociety is rated as one of the best blog networks. I personally really like it. So to test it's "real' effectiveness, I am going to start a case study.

    Here?s the case study?

    I?m not going to reveal my domains for obvious reasons. However, I?ll tell you the competition of the keywords, and some on-page details of the site I'm testing HPS on.

    Keyword: 3 words
    Niche: Internet Marketing

    Competition:
    Medium (lots of high pr sites on page 1, good on page SEO for my keywords on most pages)

    [​IMG]

    Searches:
    Exact Global Monthly Searches: 12,100
    Exact US Monthly Searches: 4,400

    Google results:
    keyword: 48,300,000 results
    "keyword": 2,620,000 results

    Site stats:
    Target page: Homepage
    Keyword in Title: Yes
    Keyword in Description: Yes
    Keyword in H1: No
    Keyword on page: No
    Links built: No links whatsoever. The domain is very new and no off-site SEO has been done

    Current Rank: N/A (Not in top 100)

    How I'll go about it:
    I have written an article, spun it very well, and added my link with anchor as keyword. It's a contextual link, and appears in the 2nd paragraph of the article. The title also has my keyword.

    I have submitted the article to HPS, and it will be posted to 100 high PR sites in their network over the next 10 days (10 posts a day).

    If I see no movements, or very less effect in SERPs, I'll be dripping 100 more posts. If there is no effect still, I'll blast the blog posts with SB links.

    At the end of the Case Study, I'll be observing and reporting these stats:
    Total Links received
    PR breakdown of blog posts
    Natural index rate of posts
    Rank updates
    And some other things if I find important.

    I'll be updating this thread with updates and any other details whenever a need arises.

    I have tried to make this thread as much open as possible, and gives as many details as possible. Still, if you feel I missed something, simply post in the thread, and I'll be happy to answer.

    Just saying: The purpose of this Case Study is not to rank for the keyword, but to see what effect HPS can have for such keywords. If I see some major improvements, then I'll be throwing in some more links to diversify and rank in top.

    And obviously, I won't be doing any other SEO for the keyword while this case study is on.

    Pretty tough keyword to rank with only 100 or 200 HPRS posts imo, though page2 or page3 should be doable.

    You are giving HPS a hard time with that keyword :)
    Good luck.

    Mannnnnn. What an unfair challenge, lol.

    Random guess, I predict you'll show up on page 8 in 10-12 days.

    You bet! ;)

    I just hope you don't manipulate the links!

    Anyhow, I'll keep pushing more and more posts for maybe a month max, if I don't attain good rankings. Then I'll go with my own methods.

    Yea, it is a bit of an "unfair challenge" but I think it's great... saves me time doing this myself (if I would have thought of it).

    I use HPRS and have had a very good experience so far. Tough competition for a new domain, I really appreciate you going after something worthwhile. I'm so tired of the "WSO" type of case studies where they are incredibly ranking on the 1st page of Google for "teach your pig to iceskate" and then brag it returns over 2 million search results... lol

    This is definitely worth watching... any decent movement at all will be impressive.

    You only make use of 10 posts a day, so for 1 month that would be 300 posts. That is just doomed to fail, you can't realistically expect good rankings with such keyword, you haven't even optimized your page properly for the keyword that you target.

    As a matter of fact, I am now ranking #8 for a 1 word keyword, with 65,600,000 results (3 are wikipedia links #1, #2, #3) because of HPS and some of my other linking. I was actually amazed at the results on that keyword, and that got me thinking, "Who did that? HPS or me?". So hell. Here it is. I'll find the answer this time.

    This KW is much easier one that I ranked earlier!

    Yeah I did read these posts but it doesn't say much about how many posts you will keep pushing, then I edited my posts to 10/day cause the original post said that but obvious you could also setup multiple campaigns at 20/day to push out over a 1000 links a month. Anyway, time will tell.

    FYI: I have a client that ordered 800 high PR society posts with me, 100 for each site / set of keywords. So 8 different sites and 16 keywords in total. It's dripfeeding at 5/day for 6 days in a row now and the keywords are low-medium competitive. If you want I can post the progress in 3 weeks from now (then all posts are dripped and that includes an extra week to see how it worked out). It's a nice case study for myself as well as I never have the patience to use only one kind of links.
