New ActuallyRank service from Chris Rempel

by 74 comments
Has anyone had a look at the new service that Chris Rempel is launching tonight at just after midnight PDT? Apparently it delivers thousands of URLs for well ranked blog pages that accept comments containing backlinks, and it delivers each list to just a few people.

Has anyone here been a beta tester or otherwise had pre-launch access? I'd appreciate some real-life commentary if possible.

In the meantime, I was looking for any affiliate offers with a decent bonus and didn't find many worth mentioning. In fact the only ones I could locate were these two:

      I guess I can conclude that you haven't used the service and don't know anything about its effectiveness.

      Does anyone have a fact-based review?

    Chris has a proven record for delivering quality results (especially providing free training resources in the War Room)

    His affiliate program is application-acceptance only, so you won't see the usually "spam fest" of Sniper sites being able to promote it.

    In terms of the table quoted by Jamie, that's taken out of context, and was placed on the page in response to requests from pre-launch comments asking for a comparison chart.

    PS - I plan to sign up for the service myself tomorrow - no I'm not an affiliate.

      Thanks, Dexx. I agree about Chris's track record.

      Maybe his beta testers just aren't ready to come out of the closet. I'm probably going to join and see for myself.

    Keep in mind there are only four beta testers and they were just selected last week -- depending on the keywords they went for etc. they might not have anything to report on as of yet.

    In terms of usability of the software, Chris does walk you through the software in the video on the website, which helps quite a bit to see if it IS what you might be looking to use (vs an automated solution).

      I've just signed up and at first glance it looks pretty good. It will take a little getting used to like all systems, but so far I like what I see.

    You'd be correct. I think Jamie still has hard feelings about some of the feedback we gave him on his 4-Figure PLR package a while back... what was it called, DigiBizPro?

    Anyway, on to things that are actually important:

    Well, we have about 200 members already as of 12:39 PST.

    (I'll let some of them chime in)

    Once we surpass 400 I need to carefully look at the numbers to make sure we don't go past our inventory limits. Depends on the blocks allotted to user-levels. Most are coming in at $69/mo. but there's quite a few accounts at 129 and 299, which eat up much more of the master DF list...

    I think we can scale monthly inventory somewhat past we what we can currently do, but I'm not sure. I think the eventual member-cap will be in the range of 1000 or so, but that may be pushing it.

    Also @ Dexx - got your email, dude, will get back to you asap

    Cheers

      "PLR Package?" Try full service package. And hard feelings regarding feedback? You obviously werent a member and you dont know anything about what it is I do so it was hardly feedback. And you also made it known "I would never hear from you again either". Well I just did.

      Look at your $300 a month recycled LinkJuicer ripoff. As if I am going to respect this. Why dont you tell your subs how they will end up blacklisted. Later Surfer. See you at ASE.

    I am beginning to think we should have TWO different Product Review threads set up in the Warrior Forum.

    1. Actual Users - clear, concise opinion (good or bad) based on actual use and results

    2. Fantasy Reviews - totally made up reviews and opinions based on never using the products and filled with a bunch of followers posting "thanks dude, this is a scam"

    Unfortunately, Forum 1 would be about 1/10th the size of Forum 2!!

      O.K. guys, here is something all of you could use.

      Now, before I begin, I will say that I am both an affiliate and a paying member for ActuallyRank, HOWEVER, what I am going to do is a real case study of a site I created of my own specific process in which I have 10 pages (of 30+) that are already ranking on page #1 of Google.

      I will build backlinks using ActuallyRank exclusively to the remaining pages and post my results here.

      The website in question is: Feminine Tattoos

      I will also be sharing this case study with my lists and forum members for complete transparency.

      I am confident that based on the products Chris has put out in the past, that ActuallyRank will be no different, in that it will actually work as intended.

      Stay tuned...

    Just wanted to make note of 2 things:
    - This is for those who know what they're doing. There is a bunch of stuff in the backoffice to help out, but this is not for newbies (which is a GOOD thing IMO).
    - This is note a software but a DB of best locations to get links from. Unless you have a lot of time or have a dedicated VA to work with you, this is not a good option (it's not very automated).

    I saw a few common urls between what I own guys dug up so I know the overall DB is good. I've joined at the $299/month level and will report any changes I see in my SERPs with this soon here. I'll be testing with both high competition and low-mid competition KWs.

    I'm curious as to how this compares to something like Blog Comment Demon. Better/worse or just different?
  • Profile picture of the author Chris Thompson
    Ok hopefully the off topic stuff will end. Not the place for it.

    I joined Chris Rempel's ActuallyRank today also. If it delivers anything close to the promise it will be well worth the price and I'm going to teach one of my guys in the Philippines how to leave respectful and useful blog post comments on my behalf for my money sites.

    I've paid $150/month to have profile links outsourced in the past. The way I see it my $69 combined with about another $50/month for a pro-rated portion of my employee's time means I'm paying LESS than the former but probably getting more value.

    I haven't even had a chance to login yet. I'll happily report back after a month of using this service. It's a no brainer to try it out. Worst case scenario I'm out $69, but I highly doubt that happens. Chris is pretty straight-up about stuff in my experience.

      Hi Chris

      Thanks for posting - we are actually doing a major link-prospect refresh due to an algorithm issue last night (of course...)

      Anyway, in about 48-72 hrs your sources will be much better, with less root subdomains/false positives.

      I emailed all members about this

      Thanks

      -Chris

    I have never found any effectiveness from profile links. $150 per month on outsourcing profile links is quite expensive. I rather spam high PR blogs with high PR pages within to get some link juice.
  • Profile picture of the author Steve Faber
    I joined Actually Rank yesterday at the lowest level, based on the other things I've bought and seen from Chris in the past, which have been very good. I've already used it a bit, and I'll put together a review based on what I find.

    Based on past experience, I doubt I'm going to see any overnight ranking improvements. These kinds of things usually take some time, although after they get rolling it's usually worth it.

    One of the pages I'm using this for is already on page 1 of Google, but at pos #3 for one of the main keywords I'm targeting, and pos#2 for the other. I'm hoping to get both of them into #1, and move another primary keyword from page1 pos7 (out of 7.4 million exact matches) up to the top as well.

    That will be a tough test, because getting from the bottom to the top of page one is no easy task most of the time, especially with so many competitors, many of whom are either gov entities or large businesses.

    I also have some blog posts in the weight loss niche and that I'm hoping to use AR to boost up. These are also highly competitive phrases, so we'll see what it's made of.

    Stay tuned.

      I'm curious why people stopped posting to this thread all of a sudden ... none since 3/20 ... 9 days ago?

      EDIT: Weird! I just looked at the date of the post immediately above my post and it's '3/20/11' as is the date of my post! But today is 3/29/11 .. and the date of the post before last (2 posts above mine) is 3/29/11! Huh?!


      Anyway, a couple of questions:

      1) is this a WSO and if so, can someone give me the link?

      2) I don't know if I got this right, but I got the impression from reading 1 or 2 posts that ActuallyRank might be great for helping your site rank for the home page/domain name, but not so effective for interior pages/URLs .. is that right?

      And I guess there'd be no more recent reviews .. based on actual results .. since Chris points out that results wouldn't be seen for anywhere from 1 to several months, depending on the KW(s) & niche you're promoting.

      Thanks,
      Richard

    There are many services like this.

    The bottom line is: will the comments and posts left on the network, be monitored for quality?

    If too many people post crap, well.. we all know what will happen.

      It sounds as if you may be thinking of private blog networks, which tend to have limited value because of semi-duplicated (spun) content and because of poor-quality comments, as you say.

      ActuallyRank isn't a private network. It isn't any kind of network. It simply finds unexploited blogs all over the interwebz and parcels out those URLs to its members. Chris says he will enforce a very strict policy against generic comments and against automated comments.

      (By the way, I've joined ActuallyRank since starting this thread, and I'm happy with what I'm seeing so far. Much too early to see actual SEO results, but the potential is certainly there.)

    Is anyone finding any appreciable amount of dofollow blogs that actually allow reader comments?

    I haven't even found one yet, after going through about 100 of them. I've been commenting on the high PR nofollow ones, but I don't even think those comments will go up because they seem to be abandoned wordpress blogs.

      I've found some high-PR nofollow sites where my comments have gotten approved. Probably those links are no more valuable than low-PR nofollow links, though. I don't know whether anyone has tested that hypothesis.

      I agree that high-PR dofollow sites seem to be in short supply on ActuallyRank. It's early days, though, and Chris does recommend concentrating on the lower PR sites.

    My initial impressions of this were pretty poor. The quality was so bad I didn't even bother sending to my VA to work on as it would have been a waste of his time and my money.

    The first update didn't really help much either.

    But the second update has taken this service to what it should have been initially.

    I hand commented on about 100 urls last nite and overall was pretty pleased with the sucess rate.

    What Chris is doing to avoid saturation seems to be working. This list was a lot less spammed than most of the other lists I get. At most I saw maybe 10 comments from other AR members.

    I even had quite a few comments on pr3 pages where there were no comments at all yet. Almost didn't even try commenting on these as it's usually a sign the moderator isn't letting any through but turns out I was able to anyways.

    I cancelled my sub around the first update but will be resubbing to this as think it's going to be pretty good now.

    So I went from not recommending this due to it not being quality to now almost not wanting to recommend it to keep it a secret ;-)
  • Profile picture of the author Warrior Dude
    So is anyone who is using this having any success?

    It seems that the service is no longer offering pr as an indicator of link value.

    Maybe I am wrong, but it looks like Chris couldn't deliver on his promise of high pr links so he made up his own scoring system to determine the value of a link.

    So my question is who using this service is happy and who is not. He is suppose to have the quality of the links updated by now.

    So how is it going for everyone who is using this service? Are you getting high pr dofollow links like the salespage promised? Are you seeing your sites moving up the ranking in the SERPS?

      Look about 4 inches above your post.... and yeah, I think that maybe you're wrong. If the stuff didn't work people would be screaming blue bloody murder. Think... if it worked for you would you be shouting it from the rooftops?

    Can anyone report back on whether this service is working for them?
    • Profile picture of the author gpower2
      Wanted to chime in here again before I give the results from my live case study mentioned above.

      This service works REALLY well. In the 3 years I have been marketing online, doing all types of backlinks and using many different services, ActuallyRank is one of (if not THE) best!
  • Profile picture of the author Kael41
    Bottom line is, go with a reputable link service that can give you access to sources that are less-ravaged by other seo'ers, or, go the automation route and use automation tools to source your own backlink farms. That's the smartest in my opinion.
    • Profile picture of the author Shawn Anderson
      I was one of the lucky few who got in on this. It is hands down the best batch of untouched blogs for commenting on I have found. He gives you a best practices guide as well. Even stuff to hand off to your outsourcers to improve link approval.
  • Profile picture of the author Dexx
    Not really, the list is organized in a very simple manner. I've spent maybe a total of one hour on the site to find the links I link to.

    Firefox + NoFollow detection plugin = Easy Peezy.

    Open link in tab -> see if the links on the page are no-follow or do-follow -> leave related comment regarding the topic -> move to next link (repeat)

    Can't comment on the challenges of the other poster, but I'm not sure how he couldn't get a decent link after 5 minutes...let alone 3 hours. (however I also don't know what exactly he was doing to search for those links / what he was posting for comments)

    All I'm saying is finding quality backlinks is a very simple process with the system they have setup. I could really care less whether others use it or not--as long they just don't shut it down for my use.

    Cheers,

    I couldn't wait any longer for actuallyrank to open up again so i bought scrapebox.Within 1hour i can crank out thousands of high PR blog pages easily. Now I can't see any different btw the two in terms of getting comment page except that scrapebox doesn't have a reliable addon yet to check dofollow/nofollow page. I think it would be great if chris could also includes the commenting service inside the membership.

      I believe he's reopening this offer next week. Also, you can export the links to a file, so you can easily outsource it.

      I've been using Actually Rank for a couple weeks now, almost a full month..

      I have only spent about 3 hours building links with it though, but I've gotten quite a few links from it (20-30 or so? I'll check for sure later) and some of the links were really really good.

      Ive hardly had enough time to play with this service so far, but I am hiring a link builder to do the commenting for me and keep track of everything in a spreadsheet for me.

      I'm going to go back and check my records tonight and see how many of the moderated comments have been approved that I posted during that first few hours of playing around with it..
  • Profile picture of the author IM Godfather
    I'm biased as the Page Juice Score used in the program is mine .. so let me get that out of the way first (other than that I don't benefit from AR in any way)

    But let me tell you .. AR is the real deal, there is a ton of new links added each month. As I see all them, as they are scored by my system, let me tell you there are some great opportunities in there. Now I'm not going to lie and say, every link is gold, cause it's not.. but the sheer number of links provided monthly makes it a high value system. (For example my system paired through 250k urls last month -- yeah that's a mysql buster, let me tell ya)

    I'm going to go back and check my records tonight and see how many of the moderated comments have been approved that I posted during that first few hours of playing around with it..
    FYI .. if you are using the projects feature, you'll like the new backlink checker that's going to happen in the next couple days. (yeah I'm biased on this one too) .. but it's going to basically go out and verify if your links are in place or not, saving you the hassle.

    What's great is that it let's you really evaluate the system. Because no matter how good the links are, if your comments don't stick, it's not worth it.
