Any experience with SEO Content Network

by 20 comments
I just read from one of the SEO gurus blog post regarding SCN or Seo Content Network. He said that it is really a good marketing tool and its more on a blog posting platform. I'm trying to find a review on this program, yes I found review but only tool.

Do you have any experience with this platform?

    Did this guru by any chance have an affiliate link, optin list, etc... on the same page?

      It was probably written by the owner or someone working for the company, doesn't look like they have an affiliate program - or at least not publicly advertised.

      No affiliate link... He's just suggesting that's the tool he used to make his webpage recover from panda.

    Nofollow links don't pass pagerank

    Most authority sites are nofollow so even in a tiered way pretty useless for passing pagerank.

    2 year old analytic reports but no way to verify it cause url data is filtered out

    Claims that the network drives traffic but nothing to back it up.

    Hardly ranking power cause of the nofollow tag.

    Draw your own conclusions....

    As most know Google has changed their algorithm again, and also their own TOS.

    Google use to say that "In general, webmasters can improve the rank of their sites by increasing the number of high-quality sites that link to their pages."

    Google has changed that too "by creating high-quality sites that users will want to use and share."

    And SCN shares content, just as Google wants.

    Even though Google says "traffic" isn't part of the algorithm, many who have done private experiments with this very issue would tell you that traffic with a decent on page time + a good CTR increase their rankings. So in that sense, SCN helps generate traffic to a site and as long as the site is onsite optimized and the content is good, their traffic will increase.

    Also, even though many of the "Authority sites" only have "NoFollow" links that point back to our customer sites, most of the "Authority Sites" are also types of Search Engines, and SCN helps increase our customer sites rankings in these "Authority Sites"/"Other Search engines" which in of itself can increase traffic. But don't be fooled, Google considers links on Authority Sites rather high and links on these sites are important to all search engines.

    SCN is of no value to those who want a quick buck now, but our customers do see results and they do so quicker than when they didn't use SCN.

    We are always testing our services to ensure they are effective while still not causing our customers any harm.

    You're the one comparing it to a press release service.

    So you claim your network is full of authority sites? Why not show us then? Google won't respond to a spam report when it concerns an authority site.

    You talk that it's not for people who want to make a quick buck but your analytic screenshots show HUGE pikes in traffic, that would give me the idea that my traffic increases with like 600% within a week, sounds pretty much like a quick buck to me. I mean you went from as good as zero visits to 600/day within a week time.

    Honestly, it sounds to me like some new ALN/FBL type of network. One authority site would cost you many thousands of dollars to develop, still you claim you have 1000's of such sites, that would cost millions of dollars, your company exists since 2011 but no one ever heard of it before.

    Something is just a tiny bit off here

    Authority sites would be:

    Pinterest
    Facebook Fan Pages
    URLs of Tweets on Twitter
    Google+ posts
    Reddit
    Amazon
    Press Releases (PRweb, newswire, etc)
    YouTube Videos
    etc.

    When I stated "Also, even though many of the "Authority sites" only have "NoFollow"" I was talking about Facebook, Twitter, etc, not our sites.

    We offer "DoFollow" links to Authority sites,I said we have quality sites, not authority like the ones I just mentioned in the list above.

    I use press releases as an example, not an "exact match".

    We are a unique service, and we have had customers report spikes like the ones we showed on our site, but those who "spiked" that quickly are unique. Most what occurs with SCN customers is that they see results at a faster rate than the normal bell curve of what is normally seen. But results differ from customer to customer, depending on how they use the service.

    Niko has a lot of good points here. But I just wanted to point out that nofollow does seen to pass pagerank, at least from my fat results it has. I can still see results from thousands of no follow links.

    But yeah, something fishy about the network.

    Slin and anyone else PM and I would be happy to discuss some of this privately with you!

    We are a legit service, and we have many happy customers. We are always having our services tested and currently have 40 different sites (owned by others) testing out the effectiveness of our service as we are always trying to improve the results our customers are getting.

    Look's like SEO Content Network receiving bad feed backs. But I love the way "liberaldrew" explain their tool. My guru also said that this tool (SEO Content Network) is really good, easy to use/user friendly and fast result. Now I will purchase this tool for fast ranking even though at first I have doubt in using it.

    Please read my blog posts kevinklau dot com and empowernetwork dot com/kevinklau. Thank You

    So in other words, it's a nofollow public blog network that covers its tracks by linking out to Facebook. See how easy that was.

      It doesn't post customers content to FaceBook. SCN has thousands of site customers content is posted too. It is DoFollow when linking to authority sites like: Google+, Facebook fan pages, YouTube Channels, YouTube video etc! Seo Content Network is NoFollow to everything else!

      They're still used at my agency for throwaway content. This despite the fact that we often disavow our OWN guest posts just months or weeks after they go live. Insanity...

      SEO Content Network dot com isn't like "the other networks". Which I have explained previously.

      People still use SEO Content Network dot com because of how we are so unique and follow googles terms of service.

      SEO Content Network:
      -Syndicates customers content
      A) Blog posts
      B) Videos
      C) Images
      D) Etc. (Articles, press releases, Facebook/google+ articles and more)
      -Syndication includes giving proper attribution
      A) Using quote marks
      B) Showing the URL the info came from
      C) using appropriate do follow and no follow keyword links
      - Follows Googles Terms of Service on types of keyword links
      A) Do Follow keyword links to authority sites/social sites
      B) No Follow links to all other sites

      By doing this SEO Content Network is following Googles Terms of Service. Because of the way we do things our service and our sites actually help our customers.

      Matt Cutts says "would you do this if the search engines didn't exist?" My answer is yes, I want my content on as many different sites to increase the possibility of as many different people could see it and possibly click on the links to come to my site!
