    Used to be e member of UAW. It was a poor piece of coding but a decent network 2-3 years ago.
    I'm still on the mail list though (yeah I know)
    So today they send me an email with a link.
    The email says

    "Why we love the Google farmer update"

    It goes on to say how sites using their network for links have improved.
    I followed the link - and found the following page (I had to cut and paste it onto my site. Don't worry it's no...follow from here and certainly the page I reference on my site is no...follow there as well)

    What a bunch of conning twats!

    [EDIT] Removed link to my site. Didn't want to be accused of link baiting. The idea that such a respected article marketing tool is trying such desparate measures is (to my mind) to big an issue for those of us who spin and use articles as a link tool for this clusterfuck to go unchallenged.

    What a waste of time.

    Try better link-baiting next time.

    Lol - not link baiting -I'll shift it if you like.

    These people have 30,000 members all paying $67 a month (so that's a 2 million dollar a month operation in round terms) and the network has gone pfft.

    Then they send this to every member.
    It's either a con or an insult to our intelligence, and I doubt very much the guys at UAW are that stupid they don't know the difference.

    If anyone else doesn't like It then I'll happily remove it. I'm guessing that huindreds of BHW members are also members of UAW (or have been), so I'll leave it for now.

    Otherwise I'll just post it here instead. But definitely posting it somewhere. This is bullshit.

    hey Scritty,

    what do you exactly mean on this post?
    is UAW removing links from members from all their blogs?

    can you be more specific about what's going on? ..because I'm about to sign up for their service!

    Thanks

    Look at the image.

    The "before" image is a 2 word phrase "stop smoking"

    The "after" image is a 3 word phrase "stop smoking aids"

    In real life the site they are trying to rank is now at number 47 for the 2 word phrase "stop smoking" so it's dropped about 41 places NOT gained a couple.


    They are showing (in the second picture) a result for a different phrase from that of the first picture. A MUCH easier phrase to rank.

    They know damn well what has happened.
    Not only is it deceitful (at the least) it's also an insult to our intelligence.

    It's MUCH easier to rank longer key phrases than shorter ones.

    That screenshot shows the ranking for several keywords, it's not a before and after,

    It shows Stop Smoking as #3 and Stop Smoking Aids as #1 and you cutted the Stop Smoking Aids Reviews that was also ranked #1 or so they say.

    I might agree with you about the rankings not being current but you are accusing them of something that i don't see them doing...

    Scritty,

    I dont know man but the site you are talking about is smokingreviews.org

    and the site is still pretty well ranked.
    I see it on my browser as #5 position for stop smoking and
    #1 position for stop smoking aids.

    Maybe you should clear out your browser cookies and try to look up the site again!

    :)

    Fuck me I'm dim sometimes.

    Al the same the sites have dropped a little since farmer not gone up.

    I wonder where the sites they post to are hosted?

    Outside the USA maybe?

    UAW is a total waste of time, poor links that count for nothing. Stay clear!
