The 109 Day Link Building Explosion Review.
The Tucson SEO Solutions website offering the The 109 Day Link Building Explosion leaves me with serious doubts as to the SEO competence of its author. The scheme is all about mutual linking and offers a 109 day series of 4 – 5 links with reviews. The concept is “that you would leave a comment and join in on what we like to call ‘Scratch My Back Marketing’. We would then scratch your back with a Do Follow Keyword Luv anchor text link to the web page of your choosing“. Great idea! Excellent theory, I thought, but the reality is:
- Missed The Point
It seems to me that the Author [Signs herself only as Admin] has missed the most important point of the project: If you want to encourage users to join in with commenting, and linking as a mutual help exercise, then it seems fundamental to me that you need to make the reviews attractive to your readers so they will WANT to visit the site. If the only things you can find to say are negative, then surely it makes sense to find other sites that you CAN be positive about?? It’s quite illogical to publish negative reviews of sites that you want people to visit.
- Comment Luv Ignored
Here is the Tucson SEO review of the site owned by the creator of CommentLuv. ”
Fiddy P – http://www.fiddyp.co.uk
This blog covers a wide variety of topics from WordPress to marketing a website. Today there was a discussion about adding video’s to a site. This blog also uses the plugin Comment Luv. Comment Luv pulls your latest blog post into your comment and provides a link to that post. So what you end up with if you have a blog is two links for one comment. We are upgrading our site and we will be adding this feature.
Given the enormous contribution this plugin makes to blog back-linking – it amazes me that Andy Bailey is given no credit here, in fact it seems the author is quite unaware that he is indeed the plugin’s owner.
- We Are Supposed to be Grateful
Here’s a quote from Day 85. It seems that Tucson SEO expects us to be thankful for her ‘taking the time to visit and write a short review‘.
“This blogs link and review were pulled and here’s the reason why. I took the time to visit their blog and write a short review. This was their reply on this blog “thanks for the link.” Now, considering that the blog is about being grateful, this certainly shows a lack of gratitude. I am flabbergasted. It would lead one to believe that the gratitude suggested on their blog is a marketing ploy rather than a serious attempt to express gratitude… Wow!”
With a little bit of luck, the ‘Review’ of my blog will also be ‘pulled’ after this response.
- Gratuitous Personal Remarks
Here is her ‘Review” of this blog:
One thing that you can tell is that the blog writer has a much reddened face and a healthy crop of grey/white facial hairs. The tagline reads “monetize your site.” This explains what the blog is about every well. It also uses the Comment Luv plugin! So I ask again why do you not have a blog?
Well I’m sorry Geraldine that my high blood pressure and ancient whiskers aren’t to your taste. I’m taking regular pills for the first, and praying about the ever-increasing daily onset of the second fault, so maybe you could overlook it this time??
- Explosion now Imploding
Seems that The 109 Day Link Building Explosion has now collapsed, according to this post : the PC with the files and passwords died[Sic].
