    As google's been going after networks in the past and now. I'm wondering, what networks I should stay away from. Specificly which ones. I'm looking at testing a number of them on different sites of mine and if you know of any that have been specifically hit hard, let me know.

    At the moment, sape's doing well for me, but I'm interested in diversifying, eggs in more then one basket.

    Very good question. I'm new to the auto-submitter programs and some have huge lists of sites and to be honest, I have no idea if they are worth anything. I hope to learn from anyone who puts their two cents in here.

    If you are using blog networks eventually you will get hit. Google will catch up to them sooner or later. I would start pushing away from them Matt..

    You can safely use them on your tier 1 links, that way if anything gets penalized its your backlinks not your money site.

    Well I'm using sape already, but I know google's gone after other link networks. I already use them on buffer sites, tier 1's that are disposable without the disavow tool, I even take it step further and point them at my competition if that's the case.

    But I'm wondering if anyone knows about the link networks that were hit in the past.
    I KNOW google will focus more and more on them, but until then I'm wanting to use them on some turn and burn sites. So without disclosing the GOOD ones, can anyone tell me the known link networks that have been heavily effected by past updates so I can steer clear and not waste my time on those? Are they even well known?

    As I said in the first post, I know sape works. But I want to diversify considering the the recent hype on it. I'm new to the link networks over the past 2-3 months, so I'm not sure about the history of them. Never had to use them to rank #1 before.

    Anyways, any experience with networks that have been proven to cause negative impact would be appreciated. Thanks.

    And by the way, I'm not relying on them to rank, so don't worry. This isn't a post asking how to rank my sites. I have very strong black methods already that have worked for the past 3 years for me. But now i'm having to fight harder.
