    I have logged into my BMR account today and found this blogpost regarding BMR getting Shutdown :(

    They wrote "It?s Been a Great Run!!

    On a daily basis, we monitor our domain network to check metrics like page rank, indexed pages, etc. As with any link-building network, some de-indexing activity is expected and ours has been within a permissible range for the past two years. Unfortunately, this morning, our scripts and manual checks have determined that the overwhelming majority of our network has been de-indexed (by Google), as of March 19, 2012. In our wildest dreams, there?s no way we could have imagined this happening.

    It had always been BMR?s philosophy that if we did things a bit different from other networks, we would not only have a better quality service to offer our users, but a longer life in this fickle industry. Sadly, it appears this was not the case.

    We know you all have a ton of questions and concerns as a result of today?s news. We want to keep you informed directly, instead of relying in mis-information that sometimes comes as a result of speculation. Naturally, considering the short amount of time that?s passed since we learned of the de-indexing, we don?t have the answers to all the questions ourselves. Hopefully, the next few days will provide more clarity on our future direction.

    For the time being, BMR will be shutting down our service in its current form. Whether we?ll re-open again after the dust settles and we?re able to determine the root cause of the de-indexing activity remains to be seen.

    User Notes

    We will be processing refunds for unused outsource credits and subscription payments for the current month, pro-rated through March 19, 2012; however, it will take some time to process these refunds, so we ask for your patience and understanding as we work through this process.
    We plan on adding a function that will allow you to download all of your live, pending and queued posts so that this content can be used elsewhere. Details will be forthcoming.
    If you want to remove posts from our network immediately, please follow the steps outlined here: http://buildmyrank.com/support/knowledgebase.php?article=56

    Affiliate Notes

    Once all refunds have been processed, we?ll issue payouts for all accounts that have pending payments, regardless of whether the $100 threshold has been met.

    Please check the blog for updates as we navigate through this process.

    On a final note, we understand the impact this will have on the entire IM community. We are so grateful for all the support and encouragement we?ve had over the past two years and regret that things turned out this way."

    Only goes on to show how important link diversity is in IM. So many people depended almost exclusively on BMR to rank their sites!

    Very good if you ask me. Every noob was ordering backlinks from services like that and SEO has become nothing but junk, spammy links. Less competition for me

    Looks like a lot of people are going to be hit that relied heavily on these blog networks, should be a lesson to all not to rely on a single link type as if it goes you get hit and hit hard!!

    I agree, very good! it is all clear that automated solutions like ALN, BMR or similar others are going down, solution? get articles, spin them, high uniqueness rate, proof read, post manually to web 2 properties + article directories + guest posts..
