Like a lot of people, I am looking forward to Link Aloha's next subscription drive. However someone sent me this article on Link Aloha that I found useful. If anything, this article gave me a bit of a reality check. Still I am going forward with them; that is if and when I get off their wait list. The Article: Link Aloha is good and bad, you choose. Pros: 1. Very easy to learn. 2. Reasonable pricing. 3. Links posted has your anchor text and are live and has do follow links. 4. Fast indexing through the rss feed provided. 5. Link location is provided with an excel sheet. 6. Search engine ranking is achieved in a very fast time with the system. Cons: 1. Beware when you unsubscribe from the service, the rss feed will be gone too. This is detrimental to the health of your website because the thousands of links that you have pointing to your site will also be gone. It?s like renting 4-5 thousand links from gotlinks.com for a month and then unsubscribe. If any of you reading this do not understand my drift, you will be in it for a great ride. All the links that were cached through the rss feed will be decached because the search engine spiders have no way of finding it. 2. They claim to ping each link posted but they don?t because links never got cached by search engines. 3. The excel sheet providing your link location sucks. A bunch of crap is added to it so you can?t ping the urls yourself. 4. You have to stay subscribed to their service or your website will end up right back where it was before or worse. 5. As fast as your website goes up, it goes down just as fast when you unsubscribe from their service. The rss feed is the issue. It?s gone when you unsubscribe and so goes your links. There?s no way to manually filter through the crappy excel sheet that?s provided to you so you can ping the urls yourself.
