    The GlowingReviews.co site is down because of a lawsuit. If you are a member of GlowingReviews.co, did they email you with any information if the site will be back again?

    I highly doubt they'd be that wreckless and provide any sort of information during a case.

    I was a member for a long time and their service was a huge asset in my local campaigns (huge).

    But I don't think they will ever be back, as depressing as it is.
    And prior to glowing reviews, I don't know of ANYONE who had a setup like they did.

    Their system was easy to use, it was extremely well priced, and very effective.

    With that said, I can't wait around for the next big thing to popup. As I could be waiting
    for years. So right now I'm in the process of developing my own private, review network.

    I don't think they were doing anything special. Just lots of local proxies and aged accounts.
    So it shouldn't be too hard to replicate (I hope).

    Personally, I wouldn't use them even if they do open the service back up. Let me tell you why...

    I used one of HKSEO.US services (ClickFaker.co) and they took the site offline, no notice, and their customer service is terrible. They told me they would email all customers an update. That email never came. No explanation, no partial refund. They just took it down and went MIA... Not only that, they kept performing the queries from the same server which made the manipulation SUPER freaking obvious. They also had really low keyword limits, making the manipulation EVEN MORE OBVIOUS. I sent them a few messages asking for them to diversify,... they did nothing to improve the service and then closed it.

    Their other service: High PR Society was busted once I believe, and they had to do it ground up. Poor planning, I believe they put their whole network on 1 server or something stupid like that. LOL

    Their other service: LinkLicious is wayyy over priced (over twice the price) compared to the competition (Lindexed and others) and 1/2 the quality and lower link limits.


    ... Really, I have nothing good to say about the HKSEO.US company. Each one of their services (in my own personal experience & observations of how they do things) have been poorly done, lack proper planning and execution, and use bad strategies.

    I have even placed many orders from their OneHourBacklinks.com service and noticed high volumes of repeat backlinks (if I recall correctly something to the tune of 75% repeat links per order) and they are really dumb to not offer a drip feed and only use one comment per blast, I mean, I don't think you could be any less obvious about link spamming.

    *EDIT* I have removed my signature from this post as I don't want people to think I'm posting this just because I'm a competitor. I think this company has/had some potential, but idk it seems like every time they release a service they half-ass it (in my own personal opinion).

    been saying this shit for years.... they are in it for hte quick buck but people keep being suckers for it. really sad how they have tarnished the reputation of other providers because of that crap that is being pushed as quality.

    back to the topic though i dont see glowingreviews coming back either- they are up against big pockets and the sites they were manipulating have to protect their assets, the reviews.

    its gonna be a long time till you see a publicy used service like glowingreviews

    you join today and ask that question
    it's possible you're just a former customer
    but a lot more likely an investigator for the prosecution
    edit: after looking back over your post, your word choice implies you were never a customer of theirs, making me even more suspicious

    Oh glowingreviews.co was a service of HKSEO!? I'm relieved I didn't sign up before :D

    I remember the time when their HIGH PR SOCIETY was found out by Google during the 2nd or 3rd month of its operation. After a few weeks that people suffered from the Panda update, they relaunched the service WITH THE SAME DOMAINS claiming that deindexed sites still give out link juice so you should pay for their links at the same price. SMH.

    Yeah I don't see any service like GR coming back. That's why like Spiderblast, I'm also starting to build my own private reviews network. Since all my local clients are in one metro area, I am making sure all the IPs are local IPs. No proxies (google isn't dumb, they can see the difference between proxy IPs and local IPs). I have been using dynamic IPs from this local area to biuld up profiles, to start to age them. Proxies are ok for other reviews sites probably but Google reviews are not worth the risk to me.

    Couldn't agree more! I initially went with Linkilicious but a lot of my links weren't getting indexed after quite sometime and resending them... Jumped ship to Indexification and haven't looked back.
