    Link Farm Evolution

    I recently purchased Link Farm Evolution.

    This is a big program, not in terms of "lines of code", but in terms of functionality. It does so much that it's difficult to describe everything that it does, but I'll give it a try.

    LFE works with three types of web sites:
    • Wordpress Mu (WPMu)
    • Pligg
    • Blogger

    LFE semi-automatically finds these hosts, registers accounts on them, creates links on them, and posts blog entries to them.

    I'm not really interested in Pligg at this time and the Blogger module wasn't working for me, so I really just tested the WPMU functionality of LFE.

    WPMU contains a database of a few thousand WPMU sites. You can search this database for sites to use, or you can use LFE to find WPMU hosts via Yahoo, Live, or Google.

    LFE found a good number of WPMU sites that matched my search term, "proxy" and created accounts on 47 of them for me. It was then able to post my links to the blogrolls of these new blogs.

    Many of the WPMU sites had disabled remote posting with XML-RPC, so LFE was not able to post actual blog posts to them. Still, it was able to post to 26 blogs for me.

    I used LFE's super-convenient macro article spinning system to semi-automatically create 26 different versions of each blog post.

    LFE has several other semi-automated content generation options. In fact, breadth of it's capabilities is somewhat dizzying! Here's a brief excerpt from the inline help:
    LFE comes prepackaged with Blogsearch, Flickr, Associated content scrapers as well as Google translate hook. By default, hooks use your post title as a base keyword to generate content and look like this — [contenthook] — when inserted into your post. To use some specific keyphrase instead of just post title, put it into braces, like this — [contenthook(payday loan)].

    None of these are what I was looking for at this time, so I didn't experiment with them. They all seem good at auto-generating very low-quality content, and that was not my current intent.

    Overall, LFE is fascinating and the author is developing the program very actively.

    It doesn't fit my current link building model. I want to build links using slightly more white-hat methodologies. But, if you have a business model that needs a good amount of blackhat links, LFE looks to be a huge time saver.

    Very interesting, of course, I'm not interested in that sort of thing for my websites. It still sounds like a great program and it's amazing at what people can come up with as far as programs like this.

    LFE is $297.

    I decided I was being too much of a wuss, so I added 3,472 WPMu hosts to my local database and tried to create blogs on all of them.

    I dumped in 1,000 blog names. I thought it would try to reuse them. Nope, it only tried to create 1,000 blogs. Of those one thousand, it successfully created 493 blogs and experienced 507 errors.

    Of those 493 blogs, some are still awaiting email confirmation (which is automatically handled by LFE). From the ones that are already validated, I was able to post on 83 blogs.

    The Type-A part of my personality wants a way to go back and try the other 2,472 WPMu hosts, without risking the creation of a duplicate blog on one of the first thousand WPMu hosts. It also wants to delete the 507 non-working WPMu hosts from the local database. But, that's not what blackhat SEO is all about. Blackhat is about quantity, not quality.

    The more I dig into this tool though, the more it feels that I will be able to find some middle ground where it can really be useful.

    I have been using Link Farm Evolution for over 2 months now. It's the best link building tool I have ever bought.
