    So, I have seen so many of these lately that I almost puked. Saturation ftw.

    Also, some of the myths to be busted

    1. "Posts from contributors accounts are not on main HuffPo"- WRONG (URL goes like
    Code:
    huffingtonpost.com/entry/name-of-your-fucking-post-with-link-to-your-piece-of-shit-site
    )

    2. "Posts from Contributors accounts are not indexed" - WRONG (my test article got 190 social shares and indexed in hours)

    3. Posts from Contributors account will boost your rankings because HuffPo is high DA, PA,MG.ZT , HZ, DP and BJ- WRONG, its no follow so you are out of luck, but I guess it will bring some 0.5% power to the overall table. (maybe)

    2nd part of the post (you might like these tips or ...not?)

    Some of you know that I was one of the first selling HuffPo (and similar links) on BHW. Well, here is how you can save tons of money, how to find a cheap blogger on big sites that will insert links to your sites.

    Mod edit - removed sexist comments.

    -First step, browse some random section of the site such as TRAVEL section. Yes, these wannabe globetrotters need all the cash they can get to cover the costs of their hostels and rice.
    If they are not CEOs of some big company check out their sites and Twitter.

    -Contact them offering biz cooperation, suggesting to move your conversation to mail. This is where you will explain how you need regular promotion for your PR (public relation) clients and so on. One out of 5 will go for it.


    Here is an examle,take a look at this "influencer"

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/author/shannon-ullman

    Just browsing through her profile you can see that she is on FIRE with posts. All her posts are about travelling and "tips" on this and that . But if you find any travel related link in her articles I am sure it will be a miracle.

    Good luck bribing.

    Good advice from a reputable member who knows what hes talking about and able to see through all the flashy marketing hype over "guest posting" and huffington post services.

    My personal suggestion for people looking for powerful SEO links is instead of wasting $400 for 1 link, you are better off building your own PBN that will provide you powerful HOMEPAGE links and the OBL is whatever you decide it to be.

    For everyone out there that is not to familiar with SEO, even though a domain may have a DA of 95, if your article is on an inner page then its pretty much worthless as the PA will not be nearly as high as the root domain since its a new page. So don't fall into that trap guys.

    If anyone wants to buy PBN links from the marketplace, first ask the seller if they are homepage links, ask about the OBL, and on a regular basis ask for the seller to provide index status updates of your posts.

    Thanks for the great share Skyrocket, great to see some knowledgeable SEO members still active on this board. Great share!

    Maybe it depends on the age and quality of the accounts. Since most of the accounts and article I have seen are noindex but still its good to have an account over Huffo to display.

    I'm married to the job. Also, I'm not a real person - just an advanced AI created to monitor BHW. I mean, I talk a good talk but there's a distinct lack of moving parts that's probably a dealbreaker for most guys.

    OP, so looks like your huff posts get 'index' and most of the others noindex - so why don't u offer the freeeeeeeeee give away ;) or maybe post a thread in the marketplace for much lower price than other asking and high light that your posts are not noindex (and provide me a free post for the tip!:D
