    Hey folks,
    I have never used sape links but I want to give a try... the question is : are they working after the last google update which cut many websites? (including my money website)

    I'm pretty sure that a lot of sape sites got hit this time
    but not all of them.

    Unless you have knowledgeable supplier
    its going to be too risky to use them

    I know few of my competitors are still ranking at the top 5 using sape.
    It totally depends on how you use them to diversify your backlinks.

    lol mate, lets use a network that Google's targeting extensively right now.

    Sounds like a good time to start using SAPE.

    It's unfortunate there aren't any other link services ::sarcasmmm::

    Yeah, it all depends on diversity. Also if they are pointing directly at your site, or if they are tier 2. So forth and so on.

    OP if you want to rank for a short period of time then sape links are good.

    So there is no "cheep" way to use them. I have to build some pyramids with really quality websites and boost each of them with quality sape ?

    What people are saying is that you'd be better off using something else than SAPE.
    Why? Because it's under attack right now from Google.

    I don't see any harm with using it for 2nd tier linking though like you suggested.
    But then again, there are other service not under attack that you can use.

    There will be risk with any network if you don't know how to execute. SAPE is still strong.

    SAPE is definitely more high risk than it has been in the past. Around Sept. 20th to Aug 10th. it seems Google went after SAPE rather aggressively. Because SAPE is continually growing they may or may not catch all the sites, but you have to be very careful about how you choose the links. You might also want to build yourself a micro-network to funnel the juice in to your money site through a couple of buffer domains as opposed to linking directly to your $ site. Also, be sure to have a diverse link portfolio if you do decide to link directly to your money site.

    i remember one sape footprint was shared here on bhw.. just imagine if a footprint was shared on public forum.. how many footprints the google employees will have..

    if you are using sape be sure that within 20-30 days ( sooner or later maybe ) your site will be tanked.. if you can churn and burn a site within that much time frame then its cool.. else don't even think of using sape to your money sites.

    Correct, there is no cheap way to use them. You must know what you're doing and have a good plan in place for when you get caught.

    SAPE still working on my russian language sites. But it's getting harder to rank these days using SAPE then it was a couple of years ago.
