    Kinda curious if anybody has used this new service offered on iwriter. You can read about it on their blog.

    Makes me nervous how they just go right out and show you a small list of their websites in the video and then you can get a list of the blogs after you do a submission.

    All google has to do is pay 20 bucks to for an elite submission and then they will get a list of 500 spam websites that they can penalize sites that they link to.

    I think its a great idea, but very dangerous for people paying for the service.

    I was reading a previous post on their network. You can have 2 links in the article and use spintax for keywords. The only thing is that the keywords replace specific words in the article, so if you were to use a naked url as an anchor it would look stupid as hell in a sentence if not planned when you had the article written. They also spin the article for each submission.

    Thoughts?

    If you value the longevity of your site in the SERP I would stay away from this particular service.

    Google is already troubling all the webmasters by penalizing with its latest updates. Using such low quality service may make the big G come after you without even requiring an update lol.

    the domains from the video presentation are already de-indexed :) I'm thinking that most of the other domains are in the same situation.

    Their idea is a good one, but poorly executed. The flaws in iWriter's blog network start to show as soon as you discover that they give out samples. Knowing the current state of SEO and the penalties being dished out everyday, it stands to reason that giving out samples and link reports is a no-no.

    For articles I find iwriter still to be the best when comparing cost over quality. But I agree that with this new service they have got wrong so there's no chance I'll be using it.

    It certainly won't end well. They have a screenshot of links placed on their blog post, and the domains on it are already deindexed or dead.

    Q. What does the P in the iwriter PBN stand for?

    A) Public
    B) Penalize
    C) Private

    Correct answers avoid google penalties.

    ps, who remembers BuildMyRank :)

    lol yea i was gunna write something similar... their P in PBN means Public.

    Will definitely not use this service, but i do think that they still have one of the most cost effective writing sources on the net.. Just takes about 3 rejects per article to get a decent one : )

    I use them from time to time and have a handful of good writers I use on iwriter but I think this could be their downfall. Just think, if peoples sites start to get hit with penalties because of the links on their PBN its likely they wont come back to have articles written by their writers in the future, looks like a bad business move to me.

    If you check the blogs they use, you will notice some patterns or footprints. On top of that, the spun articles are gibberish because they use word spin. Just watch the video towards the end and pick a few published posts. See for yourself. I would not use them on my money sites.

    I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. They said they teamed up with seonitro, and that PBN got hit by Google. Also their PBN is wide open for Google to come in and take it down, like others are saying here. If you read "the confessions of a Black Hat post by Josh Bachynski, Dori Friend (SEONitro founder) even says her blog network was hit by Google.

    Here is a quote of what she said

    "My personal business did not rely on rankings from Google at all. I was one of those nasty link providers that Google infiltrated and deindexed our websites to devalue them in the eyes of our customers. And they were successful."

    I would stay away from that network if you value your site. But again, not bad to use as a second tier for your web2.0 properties.

    Actually, after the SEO Nitro and the SEOLinkVine and LinkMonster scandals, Callens and Friend should be avoided like the plague. Plus, if you do your due diligence and check out the SEONitro website, you'll see that the network is actually closed (for Panda/Penguin evaluation they say, read "completely deindexed"?).

    I see this whole thing as a one last effort to make as much as they can from unsuspecting iWriter users.
