    I grabbed a spot as well, going to cancel in a few days as I really don't see the value to be honest. A lot of hype for nothing, tbh I find backlinks genie way better.

    I've got the "scholar" package and going to give it a month or two. So much of it depends on how aged and "connected" the accounts they use for retweets and facebook shares.
    Also what the premium links are like (authority and private syndication). If they are good, if the private and authority links have PR2 or greater and are permanent, if the facebook and twitter accounts used are really well connected - then this package is just about worth it.. If not....

    The rest is pretty "meh" but ok for variation. Trying it on a couple of brand new sites in modest niches. Will give it two months, but to be honest having seen what you get, I'm not overly impressed. But I'm happy to give it a go.

    Link Aloha is a DIY seo service. I personally would invest in a "real" seo service that provides almost the same quality and variety of links because when I invest in a seo service, I look to save me time and headaches of writing content, looking for links, spinning, posting, etc

    I'm not saying Link Aloha is a headache and a waste of time but I prefer to "take stuff off my hands" when I invest in a monthly service.

    I did say "IF" ...lol

    Yeah - that's not good. 18 followers? This might well be the end of this deal for me. Not really sure what the benefit is here? All these social sites, there are tools that can create those free in minutes. If the ones they post to are no better than those we can create - then what's the point of that?

    Cancelling this month as well :(

    Think there's a "no refund" policy, which sucks.

    doesnt really suck when you know what you are buying before you buy it. what sucks is having people use your service and then request a refund because two-weeks ddint dliver results

    but really though what were you expecting for $66 mo? that sounds like you got what you paid for. if you were paying thousands a month then expectations should be set high. but you get what you pay for.

    8 months is unnecessary

    at $66/mo that should be a supplemental low quality link building and not a high quality solution that will push many rankings. based on the list above it looks like only one or two links are passing any sort of linkjuice anyways.

    You don't know what you are buying without a trial, let's make it clear. If they advertise super-duper social media links and sell you crap twitter re-tweets etc it means you paid expecting something more, which is not the case.
    Nobody asked for refunds because of 2-weeks no results shit, it's only because of the quality of links. Read again, carefully.

    Probably jalapeno peppers.

    Mate I have to agree with him, What can you really expect for $66 a month? If you are expecting tweets from Kim Kardashian then you've got another thing coming. I would expect exactly what you described for that low fee.

    The problem I see are clients that have expectations that aren't realistic. You should use LinkAloha for secondary links and nothing more.

    I can't even recommend using them and have been saying that for years however the argument of value vs price is something that makes me laugh being in this community.

    I am spending $1600 a month with them.... and its still not worth it.
    The articles are not being written for the authority links, the links are not being completed.. and no movement in the rankings.

    So to the Link Guy.... is $1600 a month still not a good amount to expect results?
    I have also asked for a refund.

    Paypal will force a refund if they dont supply what was advertised.
    Thank goodness for purchasing through paypal.

    You cant promise the world to people..take their money and expect to have a policy protect you. Its still fraudulent if they over hype it and take your money but then dont do the work.

    I used the lightest package, and I am largely disappointed.
    My Facebook so-called shares is done with an account that has no likes and also promote Cialis and Viagra.
    I am going to use it fully for this month, and cancel it next month.
