    A new thread has cropped up about a new Scrapebox service called Rankuply. They provide, allegedly, a new method that brings in longer-lasting, better-quality links. Whether or not it's different than any other Scrapebox service, I don't know, but I was impressed with them being able to bring a domain registered in APRIL to position #8 for "wordpress themes" (exact search: 90k local, 246k global). Plus they offer a package that provides 10k to 30k links (you choose) per week for only $22.99 per month. Can't really go wrong there.

    I'm going to test this out over a 3 month period on my site about electric cigarettes. I have used many services from this forum on the site - many had no effect whatsoever, others barely had any effect, and the others that made big improvements only lasted a few days.

    You can find the Rankuply thread here:

    I will upload an Analytics PDF every week starting Thursday (tomorrow) to:
    http://www.ecigme.com/analytics.pdf

    Site History
    I have achieved ranking up to pages 6-8 for "electric cigarette," my main keyword, but not for long. I now float in 15-25, though lately I've been staying in higher ranks. I used to rank for my other 3 keywords, but not anymore.

    Plans
    The duration of this case study will last 3 months, with the Rankuply account exclusively dedicated to this domain. I don't know the frequency of Rankuply's reports, but I will upload them when they come. I will also update the Analytics PDF weekly, as I stated before.

    Rank updates will be posted every day.

    After 3 months, I will evaluate before and after stats, how well I think the service did on its own and compared to other services I have used, and if I plan to continue using the service.

    Goals
    The site is monetized, currently, with a $34 payout trial electric cigarette CPA offer. I hope to achieve a rank high enough to get 3-4 leads per day. However, the main priority of this case study is to see how well this service can improve a rank and bring in traffic.

    I think its because the mods saw it as advertising their website and paid services.

    Yeah, looks like their thread is closed, but the service is live, and they will be starting my project soon, so I will keep you guys updated as far as the actual service's performance is concerned.

    I got a blast and the service sound good actually.
    But after I
    1. removed duplicate URLs + Domains
    2. checked against my URL
    3. and checked outbount link count

    I was left with ~900 pieces, where as 70% is +200 OBL links to <10.000+

    So, an automatic Scrapebox solution? More like, but definitely not something extremely new.

    Some sort of SB-Dripable version, which could be used for auto-backlinking web 2.0 properties, profiles, etc.

    Ranking Report
    Electric Cigarette - #166
    Electronic Cigarette - #174
    E-Cig - #153
    E-Cigarette - Not in top 500

    Why the rise in the second in third keywords, I don't know. But I did expect my first and main keyword to drop because that's usually what happens when you randomly start blasting a site with 3000 links per day.

    As for the service, communication is fast and professional. However, I don't very much like how they send out reports via getflow.com instead of a proprietary user platform. I can't see my reports because Flow has a monthly fee and I don't want to pay that. I can see the comments they add to my project to let me know when they are sending out links, etc.

    Ranking Report
    Sorry for the lack of updates. Not much movement, so I haven't updated. New Analytics will be uploaded tomorrow. Here are the current ranks:

    Electric Cigarette - #165 (+1)
    Electronic Cigarette - #176 (-2)
    E-Cig - #146 (+7)
    E-Cigarette - Not in top 500

    I use it on the reports that allow me to copy the links. Some reports are in PDF while others are in TXT. Not sure why they are inconsistent.

    Reports are delivered daily because they push links daily.
