    Check their backlinks with ahrefs. They commonly have footer links :)

    Thanked!
    So what do the footer links usually look like? Can you please give some examples?
    Are they usually styled creatively (such as smaller font, same color etc.) or do they have some sort of patterns?

    Yes, you are correct.. Not all of them will placed in footer though. But they are normally hidden or concealed . So just try to highlight the text around those areas and you may find some anchor text links.

    They're normally on inner pages. I haven't seen good quality Sape links placed in the footer before.

    So in order to find if my competitor is using SAPE. I have to 'reverse engineer' their backlinks, then go through their backlinks and see if they are .ru?

    Because those SAPE links probably wouldn't appear on the actual money site, but the Tier 1 backlinks of the money site?

    Its not always easy to spot them, because each webmaster can choose where he wants the links to appear. Some may put it in the footer, others in the body of the post.

    Like others have stated, if the site is a U.S site but has 150-200 russian site links, and is sitting on top of the serps for difficult kws, its pretty easy to track down the sape links. But as others posted above me, your going to have to dig for awhile as the links are not always posted in a obvious location. I'm not going to go into great detail for obvious reasons, but when your looking at the sites that you think are sape sites, think outside box when looking for the actual link,as they are not always as obvious as you may think for a reason.

    Maybe just go buy SAPE if you wanna rank high, no need to look at competitors so much...

    t0mmy is also a good supplier. Great quality - although somewhat pricey. However, someone who isn't willing to pay for quality shouldn't be in this game.

    Thanks for the recommendations. So whats the difference in quality between those 2 services? Aren't they both buying from sape.ru afterall?

    The difference is we were the first to bring this to the English market, others then copied the concept when they seen how well we did with it some have even spun similar services into different "Secret" variations. Now you have IM forums and google searches showing sites full of sape resellers since we first started Speed Rank it sort of makes me proud of my simple idea ha, its been a crazy ride and great to watch it all unfold. But the main difference is we know the system inside out, we have strict filters in place, we run manual 3rd party checks on pr and indexing regularly and add bad sites to a global blacklist which is in the 1000s now, plus my partner (GoldenGlovez) is actually based in Russia.

    Although I'm not actually sure why Howard recommended that other guy (nothing against the other guy btw) when he himself used to offer a service here selling the same links, so why he would be ordering from someone else is beyond me :rolleyes:
