    Hey guys,

    I was curious if anybody here has used SEO Linkvine. I've been using it for awhile not and haven't noticed any major results from it. Along with that, I haven't noticed many backlinks showing from the service.

    Any thoughts from current or previous users?

    I thought it was an absolute waste of money and demanded a refund. The distribution rate of your articles is horrible, especially in comparison to some of the other blog networks out there. The support staff was very rude and offered extremely poor advice when I contacted them to ask about the low distribution.

    They actually told me to put my articles in "other categories that might not be related". What kind of crap is that, and then the webmasters won't accept my articles in their blogs, why, because they are in "categories that are not related", nobody wants to publish a weight loss article on their personal finance blog.

    Anyways, my experience was that the network is junk, the blogs are all low quality, distribution in horrible and the support team isn't worth my time. So far, the only "happy" seo linkvine customers I have met were affiliates promoting it.

    I'm pretty sure that I'm going to cancel when my current billing cycle expires. I too have noticed that the distribution rate is very very screwed up.

    You might select 10 posts per day, but at most you will probably get 5. And most times, you won't even get a full 10 posts for at least a week or so. I've gone back and checked posts that were live (published 2-3 weeks ago) and they only had a handful of completed posts.

    The only good thing about the service is the loose article submission guidelines. However, you make up for that like the previous guy said with a horrible success rate.

    I'm not sure if there is even a good article distribution network. Services like 1 way links are also crap because they are TOO strict and you can hardly use up your links because of this.

    As I explore services similar to Link Vine and others - I've ended up feeling like I have to do a TON of backlink building to my stuff that does make it out onto their networks. These aren't necessarily terribly time consuming with the right tools, but I've had moments of wondering WHY I'm doing SEM on someone else's site to try to lift my own boat.

    Some of the guys who architect these 'networks' don't even do decent on-page SEO 101 on their site titles and headers -- let alone do adequate backlink building on their own stuff. Yeah, they'll get your links 'out there' - but so much of acheiving any rank or relevance ends up back in your lap...

    My take - alot of these $47 - $97 - $147 a month services (why are these prices a 'standard' in the SQUEEZE-PAGE industry?!?) really ought to go for $19.97/mo <-- at that price it might be a decent way to _diversify_ your backlink profile in a way the average person doesn't.
