New ActuallyRank service from Chris Rempel

by Steve Diamond 74 replies
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?

        ----------------------
        I am a relatively new member of Actually Rank. While I cannot give a testimonial as to actual effectiveness, I think it is quite obvious that the links Chris Rempel provides are unique and time will prove them to be extraordinarily valuable. They are not your standard 'forum response' links, and sometimes require a bit of work on the front end. These links are incredible sources with high PR. I get 4000 links per month and can go through quite quickly those links that do not require longer, up-front establishment.

        This is a tremendous service and Chris Rempel does not put out junk. He's truly one of the most honest and brilliant marketers we have out there. My two cents!

    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.

    ~Dexx

    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).

    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.

        2. Learn SEO. If you actually look at what we offer, you will see that it's completely different, in every way.

        Also - regarding your threat re: "See you at ASE".

        Dude - seriously, I don't care what you think of me. But THINK before you type. You are destroying your reputation when you do stuff like that.

          Are you just sitting there reading this over & over? Youve edited the above post three times now.

          First it was "If you read out each syllable" and now "Dude, seriously"

          I was serious, but your right. You dont have anything on Linkjuicer.

          Ill see you at ASE and give you a big silly hug, a beer and end the beef. Its not a threat, Im too skinny to fight but its an invite to the club if you can get the chair out of your *** enough to come out of your cubicle and be friends. I guess we dont know sh*t about each others products is what it comes down to. LOL

          P.S: Are you really selling sources for $300 a month and thats it? Or did I miss something..

    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.

    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

        Hey Chris,

        You mention on your site that there is a 0% chance of these links you offer to be devalued or deindexed.

        Is that correct, or am i reading that wrong? Wouldn't this be something out of your control?

          You're right, it would be more accurate to change it to Low - but only in terms of getting deindexed. They wouldn't be devalued as a result of penalty, though - unlike blogfarms, etc. which can and do.

          Doing that ASAP

        Chris!

        Glad to see ya churning out some more offers! I thought you got bored of IM for a bit there.

        I gotta give credit where credit is due.

        Chris was the guy that got me started in Affiliate marketing. I can say without a doubt Chris's training is what influenced me to my first $12,000/m in the biz. Since then (2009), I have bought most of his other products and they've all been excellent.

        An awesome product creator loaded with insane amounts of knowledge - the real deal, and a half!

    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.

    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,

        It is not a WSO.

        I would like to add that I purchased it and it looks GREAT from the inside. Of course, I won't be able to post results for a while yet.

        Hi Richard, it's basically a massive list of high PR backlinks where you can comment on blogs and get a link back to your site. It's not a case of spam or anything dodgy like that. Chris gives you some quality training on how to do everything the correct way. The concept is the same for your homepage or inner pages.

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

      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.)

        I am happy to hear that Steve.
        Also I hope that Chris will do what he says will.
        But I will wait and see how things develop over time, because I wasn't particularly impressed with Chris' attitude in dealing with customer support before.

      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.

        I've always look at it like "a link is a link" and while do-follow might be a diamond I wouldn't turn my nose up at a nice ruby of a no-follow site that gets good traffic. I have some nice PR3 and PR4 blogs and if someone were to post a comment that wasn't "this post saved me much time " I'd approve it "do-follow" in a heartbeat!

        Chris's stuff is always on the up and up and he is one of the few marketers that is pretty much WYSIWYG

            I posted here a few days ago (see above) in relation to using this system as a case study on a live site (Feminine Tattoos)

            With the re-opening of the program for the addition of new members right around the corner, the management at ActuallyRank have been very busy updated the already unbelievable content.

            Back to my case study...

            Before making a video for my membership, showing exactly what I am doing, I decided to test ActuallyRank on an internal page of my niche site, for a good keyword (my page was low on page 2 of Google when I started to backlink on 3/29/2011.)

            Further, to see the power of these backlinks, I created only one backlink on one PR4 source and waited to see what happened.

            Low and behold, today, (Thursday April 7th), my page is ranked #2 on page #1 of Google! (no quotes.) #1 if you search in quotes.

            BTW, this is a competitive keyword that yields 582,000 results in quotes.
            and 13,700,000 results without quotes.

            So... 9 days later and huge movement in the S.E.R.P.S.

            Actually it was only 6 days later. I didn't want to report any movement due to backlinking, so I waited 3 days to post this to let you guys know that the ranking is sticking like glue so far!

            So far, this system is looking VERY powerful, just as Chris promised!

              Nice gain. I'm experimenting with not using anchor text, just a name, only to push trust and page rank to my main pages including category pages.

              I've found some anchors seem to get banned by Akismet and also will help with getting comments through moderation.

              So let me get this straight. You posted on just one of the blogs in the database and you are now #1. lol Did you actually pay $300 and planning on continuing paying this every month for one backlink per project?

              These are the factors that most likely attributed to your success:

              1. Your domain is the exact keyword
              2. Your site is good
              3. Your niche is extremely uncompetitive.

              I've seen the updates.. as I knew already, its a database experiment/invention nothing more.

              All you have to do is a google search like this: tattoos [leave a reply] or tattoos [leave a comment] and just make sure you use SEO Quake with firefox. Post on the relevant High PR blogs. You can rank higher for the tattoo niche for VERY competitive keywords.

              Heck, you might even get direct sales from relevant links as well so kill two birds with one stone.

              Have you ever tried LinkJuicer? You do need to create spyntax which takes a couple hours, but if you can grab a competitive keyword domain like tattoodesigns.biz and did a linkjuicer campaign you can hit #1 very easily from it for very competitive keywords. Ive done multiple case studies in WealthInAbox using Link Juicer. Niches like fertility, get your ex back, attraction, weight loss and physical products as well. It works INSANE!

              I have friends in the tattoo niche (Tattoo artists) and have done marketing in this niche. The buyers are [tattoo flash] [tattoo designs] [tattoo ideas] more than "bird tattoos," "so&so tattoos" etc 50% of those searches are for whatever reason (Who knows)

              The Tattoo niche is cool, but like alot of the other entertainment niches, definitely alot of "subniches" so to win at Tattoos, one needs to target multiple keywords opposed to a larger niche where just one keyword is all you need.

              Its alot like Dogtraining, where you would target the breeds of dogs, or in hip hop beats, you target the genres of beats like Dre Beats, Dirty south beats, etc.

              My two cents.

                I have to agree with Jamie on this ( I am not saying this is not a good service or anything like that because I haven't even tried it) but it is fairly easy to get High PR blogs you can comment on within your niche etc. I actually have a .Edu report I have put together that I have been giving as a bonus for IM products that shows you how to get .Edu backlinks to your site, that is similar to what Jamie is saying to do.

    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 ;-)

    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?

        The service definitely wasn't working when it first came out and was released. Chris admitted it himself. I didn't see anyone screaming bloody murder about it.

        So, I am not sure how accurate your statement is.

        I think people just liked his earlier ebooks and that is why they went easy on him to give him the chance to improve the service.

        That is why I am asking who is using it right now and getting high pr dofollow comments approved and is seeing there sites improve in the SERPS?

        Thanks

      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!

        So I was going to join actuallyrank but then I realised that this
        is way overpriced!

        $69-$299 per month for a list of blogs to manually leave comments on.

        Then on top of that you're going to either need to spend a bunch of time
        and/or money on outsourcing.

        Why not just cut out the middleman and do this.

        Step 1 Buy scrapebox

        Step 2 Enter your keywords in to scrapebox.

        Step 3 Set it to find wordpress blogs or whatever platform you want.

        And voila you have your own huge list sites to get your backlinks from.

        And you can even check the page rank of all the urls and amount of out
        bound links as well as a bunch of other stuff.

        And scrapebox is a one time payment people. Plus you don't have to
        share your list with anyone else.

        My second problem with services such as actually rank is that in
        actuality you're not going to get that many backlinks because lets
        face it, no matter how good the comment you leave on a website
        if it's got a link attached to it then it's unlikely to get published.

        So yes you may get a list of 10,000 urls per month for $299 but that
        doesn't mean you're going to get 10,000 backlinks or even close to that.

        Scrapebox (an amazing tool) = $97 one time payment
        Actuallyrank = Up to $3,600 per year for a list of urls to manually leave comments on.

        I expect the actually rank people probably use scrapebox to get the
        urls anyway lol.

        Anyway that's my opinion.

        Will

            Well it doesn't solve the problem of websites not accepting your comments
            but at least you're not paying per link.

              For the people who must find fault with things they don't entirely understand, allow me to share an excerpt from a post from Chris's blog:

              Regarding ActuallyRank...

              "In short, you can use it to easily build hundreds (or thousands) of powerful one-way backlinks – where the actual page itself has major linkjuice and PR’s ranging from PR0 – PR5+ – in just minutes per day. Or even just a few times a month.

              Building even 5- 10 backlinks like this can produce RANK-CHANGING results that will directly boost your traffic.

              And we send you thousands of powerful dofollow comment sources every month, so you’ll never run out of literally endless, powerful backlink prospects.

              But here’s where it all falls to pieces….

              “Egad!! You mean I actually have to do something? I can’t just lay on a hammock somewhere while subordinates shove grapes in my mouth whilst your service simultaneously produces magical Googly rankings for me?”

              Yes, you actually have to spend a whole 40 seconds – or possibly even a full 2 minutes – posting your backlink on established, authority pages with major link juice.

              There isn’t a service that exists – aside from TextLinkAds or LinkAdage (where you can buy backlinks, for about the price of a used car) where you can build BACKLINKS THAT ACTUALLY MATTER, as easily, and for such a tiny investment.

              Folks – this is how you rank for keywords that matter. Keywords that can send you thousands of visitors a day – resulting in double or triple digit transactions a DAY from a single site.

              You think you can do that with “automated” links from a private blog network?

              Or from using software that creates profiles on Web 2.0 properties?

              Or from submitting articles to bloated directories?

              Or from building spamlinks using ScrapeBox?

              (I think the answer is painfully obvious… if you exclusively build links the “easy” way like that, all you have to do is log into your Google Analytics account and look at your stats, and I think the answer will come to you).

              Now – obviously – ActuallyRank isn’t for everyone.

              It’s for serious marketers who could give a crap about “automation” because what they need is RESULTS.

              In fact, I’ve had almost 20 people email me now begging to let them in early – and almost all of them are SEO companies. (Hmmm… I wonder why that is? Oh – it’s because they need to generate results for their clients.)

              And as excited as I am to open the doors on the 29th and see what happens – and something tells me we may need to cap it off pretty quickly…

              …I’m also a little bit disheartened.

              I’ve received so many emails (and comments) lately that truly paint a sad picture of just how clueless the majority of people are in this industry.

              People asking if it’s 100% automatic. People asking if they can blast the URLs with ScrapeBox. People asking if all the sources are AutoApprove.

              They don’t see that the very thing they think they want (“NO EFFORT”) is precisely the cause of their poor results – and – amazingly, it’s the reason why they have to work so hard just to barely eek out a few hundred bucks a month – if even that…"
              __________________________________________________ ___________________________________

              I might add that as a successful marketer, I concur with Chris's frustration at times with too many people in this industry who would rather spend their time spreading negative karma instead of working hard and doing things right in regards to building an online business that will stand the test of time.

              P.S. - The basic plan for $69.99 per month is all you need to make a HUGE difference in your business. It's a ridiculous amount of money to invest in your business... c'mon are you kidding me?! Having owned brick and mortar businesses as well, I find those opposed to the idea of this miniscule investment in their business, for something that works so well, laughable.

              P.P.S. - For all of the Debbie downers, by all means, continue to pass judgement and don't join. It makes our work even easier.

    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.

          How are quality comment backlinks from blogs on completely unrelated IPs going to be viewed as a bad footprint?

          A) You aren't spamming duplicate messages using some automated script

          and

          B) You are getting comments indexed at different rates by established websites.

          ...so no...not an issue.

          As far as ActuallyRanks goes, I joined up at the highest level membership and currently have over 10 PR4 do-follow backlinks and 3 PR5 do-follow backlinks.

          My 3 month old site (in a very competitive niche) is now ranking #27 in Google and raising each month. The links have stayed and the comments are still on their respective sites.

          An awesome investment for those that did manage to get in before the stopped accepting new members.

          ~Dexx

          PS - Some of you might be wondering why I don't have "thousands" of backlinks indexed, and the reason is...I am lazy and only submit about 2-5 comments a week. A waste? Nah. I got high PR backlinks (and there's a massive amount of them)

          I'll prob be dropping down a level though since I really don't need 10,000 backlinks since even a few get great results. Chris Rempel really delivered on this one!

            I was a big fan of Rempels stuff - Until Actually Rank! Now I will probably be unsubscribing from his list.

            I signed up at the lowest level.

            Spent 3 hours trying to build links.

            About 50% of the sites that I tried had problems and were impossible to post to. As for the other 50% - well, there were various problems with those too - such as - they haven't allowed links in the comments for 5 years etc, etc.

            What it comes down to is that, for my 3 hours of work I got one no-follow link from a Japanese site that was full of other VERY obvious spam comments.

            Judging by Chris Rempels past products and the fact that Actually Rank was a rather pricey $69.00, I was under the impression that I would be getting a thoroughly pre-screened list of sites to post on.

            What I feel I got was a random list of sites that I could have generated myself in 45 minutes using Scrapebox or even Comment Kahuna if I wanted to slum it.

            I would HIGHLY recommend staying away from Actually Rank, especially since it has a strict No Refund policy (something I found out after trying to get one)

            To be fair, I could be wrong, I did only spend 3 hours with the system, but that is 3 hours that I could have been doing something else more productive.

              These two previous posts of the same service are diametrically opposed. Very odd and fishy.

                One post clearly states the quality of the links being received. The other mentions the posters difficulty in finding similar links.

                What is "odd and fishy" about two very different points of discussions?

                  I am surprised you can not see the connection between quality of links and posting ease.

                  The other dude says he could not even get a decent link after 3 hours of work and he claims it was a very poor investment of his time.

                  You on the other hand claim that you got "10 PR4 do-follow backlinks and 3 PR5 do-follow backlinks" by doing very little work. You also claim it is an "awesome investment" .

                  Are you beginning to see how the two contradict each other?

                  If you got 10 PRR4 links by spending 10,000 hours of your time, then it would not be aan "awesome investment". And if the other dude spent 10 seconds to get 1 no-follow link, then that would have not been a bad investment.

                  The reason we pay for such services is to save time, make life easier and make money. You claim that the tool does all three and the other guy says the opposite.

                  That is what is "odd and fish".

    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,

    ~Dexx

    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.

        No, actually you CAN NOT export the links. He changed this feature halfway thru my subscription, I assume to stop people from illegally distributing the lists.

        You can only use the links from within his system, which is very inconvenient, especially when you decide not to stay signed up - you lose access to any sort of tracking information you may have had.

        Actually Rank left a real sour taste in my mouth as I only had access to my links for about 20 days out of the month subscription period that I paid for. The last 10 days of my subscription - Rempel was apparently updating his server.

      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..

    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.

    Here are my thoughts. Feel free to disagree.
    Previously Rempel's products have been really good, but this time I'm a bit disappointed.
    You have one month to create 2000 (or more) comments, the next month these blog URLs will not be available any more (links will be replaced). Let's say you work 20 days per month, then you have to post 100 comments per day. If you post quality comments yourself, it will take the whole month to do the job (no time to do anything else). So the only option would be to hire a full time qualified blog commenter (costs you at least $500, if you are lucky to find one).
    Next thing - most of the comments will not be approved. Most of the admins have forgotten about these pages and blogs - last log ins were often years ago. So, if you follow all the guidlines (use different proxies, emails, provide valuable content in the comments), then you are lucky to get a 5% approval rate.
    So, I don't think it's worth paying $67+$500 for 100 backlinks. Rather scrape your own URLs or buy blog commenting service.
    Anyway, I am going to cancel my subscription.

      It's a shame that so many people came on here praising this service. Most of these pages are really old and no one is accepting comments.

      Getting high page rank dofollow links in scrapebox isn't that easy. Almost nobody gets really good links from using scrapebox. I'm going to start looking around the forum for good High PR comment lists etc.

        I took the plunge and signed up for the $69 level - after a few days I have cancelled my subscription.

        I have the highest respect for Chris and have bought his products in the past - and probably will again...

        It's just that this time, the list of pages on blogs that haven't received new comments since 2006 plus the fact that none (zero) of my comments (and they were good ones following the training guidelines in the members area) have been accepted, leaves me to conclude that this product has been a waste of time for me.

        I won't say that it has been a waste of money - Chris's guidelines on how to effectively do blog commenting was extremely helpful (just not on this list of useless blogs).

        Edit: Just checked my new 'September' list - it's just a list of the same blogs as August (but a different post). For example:

        Aug - Donklephant » Blog Archive » “A Declaration of Independence …
        Sept - Donklephant » Blog Archive » Yes, Obama Was Born In The United States

        both in the top 10 rated blogs out of 2000

        I can see many other blogs in the Sept list that are the same as Aug

        Disappointed-yes. Unhappy - no. It was an experiment - time to move on.

          I gave this service a real effort, but after 30 days of hard work and minimal results I had to cancel.

          Most of the pages have comments that are several years old, and your comment goes into moderation for eternity because the webmaster has totally forgotten about such an old page.

          Even the few comments that do get thru seem to disappear after a few days.

          And almost all of the pages have zero page rank. I know page rank doesn't count like it used to. But the ranking system they use for rating quality has no explanation and does not seem right.

          These pages are on mostly low quality blogs with little traffic, and I don't see how Google would give them the kind of value that Actually Rank seems to think.

          Spend your time and money elsewhere.

      I was an original AR member but recently bailed out with the new changes.

      Unfortunately, as with so much in IM that could be useful -- scammers, idiots, and a grubby group that would sell their mother for a dime ruined some of the benefits Chris was providing - causing changes and limitations to the service.

      It's amazing. Someone hands you a list of high PR, dofollow pages, and instead of using the list of gold to improve your websites and make a lot of money, people take the list and either sell it for $5, or they just give it away for free to 'look cool'.

      But another part of recent changes was providing any links, not merely dofollow, because the service said it was running out of dofollow links to provide.

      For me, at least, that wasn't what I was wanting. I can find relevant blogs to comment on simply by using Google and a Firefox plugin tells me links are nofollow or dofollow. I do post on a lot of nofollow blogs.

      It was the unique dofollow list I was personally interested in.

      I haven't followed the most recent announcements since discontinuing my membership. I think it is worthwhile to signup just to see what is in the service. If it is for you then stay with it.

      Bottom line: this is not just for AR, if you have a list of valuable backlinks be smart and use them for yourself. If you try to sell the list to make money you can be assured of being ripped off repeatedly to the point of not having something worthwhile to sell - and having your sources so abused they will no longer be of value to you.

      It's a shame - but that's the nature of where things are today.

      Just keep your valuable backlink list to yourself.

        This is SO SO true .. and this was one of the reason's I created my seo attack software and the corresponding page juice calculator. There is more than one way to get a quality backlink opportunity. The problem is with a large service is the chance for abuse goes way up, because there is just too much temptation there. All it takes is 1 guy (or girl) to screw over everyone else.

        The smartest approach, I'd say would be to have many irons in the fire for link opts, so you always have opportunities.
