    Blog Networks (Exposed)

    I’m sure all you link buyers have seen these blog networks that are selling links around but if you haven’t Ill explain them first. These networks are just basic blogs setup that sells blog posts across the entire network of sites. You normally see anywhere from 50 to 200 blogs in the network. Well if you ever were interested in buying links in these networks or making your own then this is a must read.

    I will go over what to look for when looking to buy links on a blog network so you don’t end up wasting your money on links that won’t do you any good.

    1. Do the sites have PR?

    Basic question but it will give you a rough idea on link popularity.

    2. Does the exact same blog post go on every blog?

    This is extremely important because it’s very bad if it does. If you have a post with the exact same content on 200 blogs then don’t expect anything in return. More than likely every one of those pages will be in supplemental results. Meaning you just wasted your money.

    3. How many different IPs are used?

    Basically more the better. Ideally you want to get your blog post on different class C IPs to get the most effect. If the blog network doesn’t have at least a unique IP for every blog then I would forget about it.

    4. Do they use RSS autoposts?

    If the blog network is using RSS autoposts to fill up the content you need to look very closely on how often it is used. If it is posting 10-20 posts a day then your link will be buried with a quickness, meaning it’s useless and you just wasted your money.

    5. Is your post going on related sites?

    Say I buy a blog post for chicken recipes and then someone buys one from new WII games. Now put those two posts back to back and tell me if the site is going to be related to your post. As you know the more related the site is that is linking to you the more useful the link will be.

    6. Does it have a good linking structure?

    If your post can’t be found then its worthless. Make sure that your post would be found in the archives or category links.
    If the blog network doesn’t fit those basic guidelines then you are probably wasting your money with them. There has only been one blog network that I’ve seen that actually gave all those items into consideration and is the best bet for the money.

    I’m not going to point out any bad ones for examples because I think that’s wrong, but you can use your judgment from the info that I gave.
    For article writing please contact me.

    I never tried that method. My thinking is, it's like buying a gray PR bar. Also, just about a week or so ago, FTC announced bloggers must disclose paid posts. Banner ads are looking better and better.

    The rule is not necessarily bad. Some bloggers may moan about it, but it's really the only the ones that are getting paid to talk about a products or services.

    The FTC rule protects readers, including those that do not live in the US, from being scammed by some BS post. Wouldn't you hate to buy something expensive that turned out to be a piece of junk, and your decision to buy was partially based on a blog post that some blogger got paid $10 for?

    Most of the blog networks have little value. The money spent on the posts could be better used elsewhere.

    It's sort of a pickle. You want to buy posts on blogs that aren't selling posts. Blogs that are obviously selling posts are probably already blocked from passing link juice.

    I think that Aaron's guidelines are pretty good for judging which blog networks to try. Buy one post as a test. Measure the results. Go from there.

    That's an oxymoron that is on the money.
