    I'm not too happy with it to be honest.
    Credits?!!!!! What the heck, we pay we cash, not "credits" bought from some other site. Reminds me of some kind of childish, gaming site where you need "credits" to buy virtual items.

    They have the text "password" preset on the "Username" field now.

    Not much comment about them removing feeds, but I do prefer them being there actually.

    What do you think?

    I don't see why this would be a problem. What I know is that they also prepare a high PR network for posting your content and keywords ;)

    I was using them for a little time now and really don't know if it is really effective, but what shocked me is that they were using RSS for all their tasks for months and they come Today to say :
    "After our tests, we strongly recommend that you don't continue use RSS feeds to get your links found. It is a pure waste of time and energy."
    Maybe a waste of our money!!

    Or they found a better way to index those links with less of a footprint. I guess they found a nice new way to index their links and they are differentiating themselves from their competition.

    Their service isnt working for me right now.

    When I submit links, the shortned URL displays 404 error, and that is where the spiders go.

    So as of now, the service doesnt even work for me. Been like this for 3 days now im pretty upset.

    I emailed them, no reply.

    I am not sure about its effectiveness. It may work for sometimes or may not sometimes.

    API is not working for me either.. I emailed support but haven't gotten a response yet. I'm also seeing 404 errors on all of their shortened URLs.

    I feel like they're bullshitting me. All my "spidered" links have 404's, so how can they spider my link when there is no link there?
    First, the site goes down for ages due to DDoS and now they suddenly say the feeds they use were bad, so they change to links, and now even the links are showing 404s.

    When we started, RSS was "the way to go". We tested it extensively and it worked much better without pinging/crawling. We are always testing and we found that without RSS it works even better now. Not sure why, don't have any theories, just results.

    Just because driving cars are better than riding horses now, doesn't mean horses weren't a great idea 100's of years ago....and they are both better than walking ;)

    The 404's were a display issue, we got it fixed and we are sorry if we gave you any heartburn.

    Not him specifically ;) but yeah, customers in general did. The plan was to have credits at our main company HumanKind, which would allow us to discount services and then let you spend it at all the ones we offer now, and all the future ones we are in the process of launching.

    BUT, customers spoke and we listened. We are not some dick head company that doesn't care about the people who are supporting us. If you guys say the headache of buying credits isn't worth the discount...so be it =)
