Is PR Storm still worth the time to use for backlinks or is it not effective anymore? From what I understand the rules of the game have changed somewhat and referrer hits are no longer hyperlinked on awstats and webalizer logs unless you make it to the top 30 referrers list in a month... just wondering if this is unfounded rumor or truth? How about RefererX, is this product worth the $67 the developer wants for it, and will it give you backlinks? I see that he was banned from BHW, just wondering what is up with that, and I see that he has a two week refund period but you have to prove it to him that the product did not increase traffic to your site, seems like a weak product guarantee to me, but what do I know. One final question, will the Scrapebox pinger do exactly the same thing that PR Storm will do? ...seems like it was built just to do this and for splog commenting. Thanks, any advice you give to this nb will be appreciated.
