    I am going to give a thorough and objective review, as objective as possible seeing how I got slapped really hard for two accounts I have been working on for years:

    1. Signing up and creating your first campaign is a snap, I have no idea why some members are having issues seeing how easy it was.

    2. Their system is really simple and easy to understand. After learning so many pieces of software, BLG did a great job in making things(like content creation) can be automatic(they will scrape an article), but like all services, the more 'hands on' you are the better, like spinning your own content.

    3. The amount of links given for the price seems very reasonable, but like any automated system, a lot of links go down or stop working after just a few days(use scrapebox to see how many links aren't alive after one week).

    4. They do have several setups that are like mini-link pyramids, but each layer takes a whole day, so you can get just 20 links for blog sites one day, and 40 more another day; for that cost that is really expensive.

    5. DO NOT AND I REPEAT DO NOT JUST POINT XRUMER OR COMMENT BLOG POSTS TO YOUR MONEYSITE DIRECTLY. I did this with two aged domains(one over 3 years old, the other over 9), and I got the biggest G slap I have ever seen. The admins say that it won't hurt your site, but it did. I feel really screwed over because of this, but it's my fault as I did know better; it just looked to amazing to set it and forget it and their site said it would be fine, I had never used xrumer so intensely that way so I should have listened to other members here.

    6. After one month, the service is awesome because I didn't have to do much, but I literally have had no increase in any of my campaigns, and with pointing to the moneysite I got two huge penalties; so I cancelled my subscription immediately. Don't listen to what admins on a website say, listen to what other members on BHW tell you; I had to learn that the hard way.

    Here is the only really good application if you are not lazy, otherwise don't use the service: just use the comment and xrumer blasts on your bottom tier, and do not use an indexing service, just blast away. G will see a sh*tload of spammy looking links being pinged and indexed over and over again, and it screams spam. Set and forget to your last tier with Backlinksgenie or any of these services, but take control of all other tiers, even if it takes much longer or you have to hire more people to do the work. After the panda update these tools and techniques are just not working like they used to, no matter what any service tells you; they are in the business of selling, just like restaurants are in the business of selling, what is actually good for you is not of their concern.

    So has it been approx. 1 month since you got slapped by Google? You may come back after Google sorts thru all those links you threw at it. Google may just ignore them as you have aged domains. A competitor could slap you down if this was the case. You'll just have toi wait and see what happens.

    hi,

    i have been using the website shop4seo for a year now, i was on the first page of google for my site after only 15 days on a very competitive keywords... they have a powerful 349$ package that consists in a huge link wheel. that's what i use. and now they also have a monthly plan of 1000 backlinks per day (wich i think is the best to gradually gain positions in google) for only 20 bucks... so far my positions are very high in google thanks to them... i dont know other seo companies except backlinks genie, but they're damn expensive even if their service is great...

    hope that helps

    By the way, its totally wrong to say that off site SEO hurts a site or gives you a G slap like you say... the only reason why google kicked you out is because of your on site SEO (broken links, duplicate urls, duplicate content... ) come on.... it would be too easy to kill your competitors otherwise by just running some dirty SEO campaigns and spam forums with your competitor link.... also, always use private proxies! even when you post links, not only for scraping.... google knows who psts what! because Google IS THE INTERNET....

    good luck

    :)

    Well it's been over 2 months now, and I'm on the 4th page instead of the 5th, so I'll keep checking it in the months to come. I keep hearing people saying 'competitors could slap you down this way, so it can't happen'; now I have proof this does happen. So fire away at your competitors, you know what web service to use :)

    Nice sales pitch but your site shop4seo is really cluttered, it's very hard to read what you are trying to sell; I recommend you simplify the graphics and have only a few items to sell when people first land on the page, only items on the cheap and medium range at the beginning and introduce your other packages later, after they become monthly subscribers.

    That is just not true, the site still ranks very well for many other terms, just not the one I promoted using BLG anymore; I use many tools to make sure the onsite SEO is exactly what G wants. And no, I didn't use proxies because that is part of what their service takes care of.

    The lesson here is to not point thousands of links straight to the money site with any service or app, use the layered approach with Web 2.0 and if you're trying to be lazy like I was, just take a vacation instead and leave the backlinking for when you feel rested :)

    Is BacklinksGenie still in business? I resigned up 3 weeks ago but could never log in even though I was a returning customer. I never got any answer from Chris or any one else at customer service. I finally went to paypal and after they didn't get an answer, they refunded me. Does any one still use them to backlink their tiers ?
