    Advice and Confessions from a Reformed Link Network Spammer

    There was only one time when link building was the easiest, least challenging part of my SEO work. I was a link network spammer, relying upon services with names like "blog networks" and "article networks." These services allow paid subscribers to post their content to a network of sites for the sole purpose of building links. Because the sites aren't meant to be read by people, many networks accept and actively encourage spun content. The resultant content quality is absolutely horrific.

    These networks were being abused pretty hard by garbage content. BMR had so short articles or in reality "Snippets" and the links were in each post.

    People think they are penalized because they use blog networks. You lost rankings because many blog networks you used got deindexed so your backlinks are now less.
