    Hi,

    Its my first post here in BHW community..
    Does anyone heard of FBL?
    I am planning to buy high pr domains to join on FBL for my niche sites.

    I plan to use aln at first but i have heard that they have low index rates.

    Have any one tried FBL?
    Would like to get your feedbacks on it.

    Hi Mark,

    FBL stands for Free Blog Links.

    Google it and you will find the URL.

    Hope this HELP's.

    Best Regards,
    Abhijit

    this might be a noob question.

    why is it important that a blog should not receive more than 20 post/day?
    Does aln implement this feature??

    :D:D

    There's actually quite a few ALN clones out there now. Off the top of my head ***** link juice and linkauthority.com come to mind .

    The more the merrier I guess.

    Yeah i agree on the more the merrier...

    I have heard of link authority also but i dont like this feature.

    "Alternatively you can purchase additional daily quota submission limits."

    Selling submission credits would decrease the growth of network.
    Bad side also is that more articles will be drip feed on the network while the growth is lesser.

    Every network does this. How else they gonna get paid? Only difference is ALN and the other's are smart enough to wait until the network's size increases to start offering paid memberships.

    But still i dont like this method on how to get paid.. Its killing the high pr blogs submitted by the users.. Lesser blogs but more post are being drip feed on the network. It would also lessen the index rates. Selling submission credits is not a good idea.

    I think it would be best that you give your thoughts about the networks and not just ruining others post. :eek:

    Thanks abby for the tips...

    Linkauthority is our network and is nothing like ALN it's more like bmr

    I think ALN is a clone of our sister site articleranks more then any thing as we were one of the first and probably one of the largest

    Linkauthority is a hybrid network we have invested thousands in a private network which is regularly add.. We don't just rely on users - users adding sites is just an added benefit

    Difference is

    ALN will publish poor content on good quality sites so if you are producing poor content then you probably will see better results with ALN - This is why ALNs network is getting hit hard now because there is no spam algothirm in place to control anything.

    ArticleRanks if you are producing low quality content it will end up on the low quality sites - Good content gets the best distribution numbers

    Trust me you do not know how many users have been blocked from publishing to good sites - Because we also feed user moderation signals into the algo.

    I use both personally and I can't really see where your statement about ALN getting hit hard comes from?

    The network is at almost 16k blogs now and growing everyday.

    For the record I see better distribution rates with ALN short term and better rates with Article Ranks overall.

    With article Ranks it's more of a drip fed approach where as with ALN you know exactly how many links you are going to get.

    Not my statement I just saw people complaining on another forum

    The network might be at 16k but it doesn't mean 16k active

    E.G. Add a site it goes to pending but the stat count goes up.. Why? I don't want to see pending sites I want to see only active sites.. I take it that number also includes dead sites, low pr sites etc

    If they are going to display the numbers of the network it would be good to get an active number stats.

    I would however prefer they did not display the number of sites in the network as Google know exactly how many sites are in there and how many to target and wipe out - Its always good in these types of networks to keep things a little hush hush as it only takes an engineer as smart as Google's to find footprints in networks and feed that into the algothirm - So the less they know the better.
