    $47 per month? For $67 per month you can get SEnuke Lite. which does the same thing only better.

    No multi-threading in this. No keyword research. No search page monitoring for web 2.0 sites. No URL manager for randurl commands, pinger etc.

    SEnuke has all of that for $20 per month more. Not to mention a lot more web 2.0 sites.

    Funny how everyone's trying to copy SEnuke features and sell em for a cheaper price. We're seeing the same old rehashed stuff over and over again. That's not the way to success gentlemen. Create something NEW, something UNIQUE. Something that will truly make a presence in the industry.

      I beg to differ Donny.

      Pinging is built in.

      SENuke has 14 sites built in for the main wheels. Link Wheel has 33.

      The type of customer this fits understands how to do some simple keyword research on their own.

      Plus, we show our customers how to do all the other things SENuke light does for free.

      Link Wheel was created by Ankur Sharma, I don't have a link to the thread here, but warriors loved the original.

      He and I have worked together to improve it.

      It's not on the sales page yet, but a new feature was just added that allows you to link together mini-wheels and the results have been crazy.

      It's worth more than $47 per month for the capabilities it provides.

    Here's a link to the original thread:

    There are plenty of reviews of the original in the thread above.

    I guess you haven't tried SEnuke.

    If you did, you'd know there are 40 sites included in the Light version, not 15. I guess they haven't updated their sales page in a while.

    Plus they have about a dozen article directories as well.

    That thread you pointed out is full of refund requests and people wondering where Ankur keeps disappearing off to. Plus the whole attraction of that software was the one-time payment.

    In any case, LinkWheels are fairly useless these days. Especially the type of LinkWheel that your software creates. It's a very simplistic pattern and Google's already caught on to it. Trust me, I used to use them a lot back in the day.

    You need to randomize the linking and create it in multiple tiers. Kinda like this: http://senuke.com/bubblus_RandURL.jpg

    Not sure your software allows doing something like that, but SEnuke does. That's a much, much harder pattern for Google to detect and works a lot better.

      Donny - you're not giving an even comparison here.

      According to what I've seen SENuke posts to 14 Web 2.0 properties and everything else is for linking to those properties.

      Link Wheel has 33 Web 2.0 Properties. If you add in the pinging/RSS feature it goes up to 55.

      Footprint is something we've built in, too. You can use any combination of the 33 properties we've built in.

      You can create 5 smaller wheels and link them all together.



      Officially, I'm done sticking up for this product. Anyone that wants to can see the history in the thread I posted above. My partner and I are providing a great product and charging less than the competition. Better support, more sites, etc...

      I don't know whether Ankur will have anything to say here or not, but I'm done. I only hope that actual users of our software chime in and give their honest 2 cents.

      Best of luck warriors.

        No, all-in-all, SEnuke has over 250 websites with all the modules combined.

        Just the "LinkWheel web 2.0 properties" as you call em are 40. You won't find this on the sales letter because they haven't updated it in a while. (Which they totally need to)

        Sorry about the fact that this is your product thread, but I'm calling a spade a spade.

    Their sales letter says they have 13. Social Bookmarking and RSS sites don't count.

    Edit: Now I'm officially done here.

      The gentleman you are responding to is not reffering to social bookmarking sites as those sites do not come with SE Nuke Lite

      He is correct in saying that they have a lot more than 13 web 2.0 properties for posting content.

      He is also correct in saying that thread has a TON of people requesting refunds (of which I was one of them) and Ankur dissapearing all the time

        I was glad to see not only that the linkwheel was a working project again but that Ross Goldberg is now behind the project as well. I have a lot more confidence that Ross will provide the necessary guidance to bring this software to the potential we all knew it had.

        If Ross is putting his name behind it, it wont disappoint.

      I have it open right now, I just counted and it has 40 web 2.0 properties plus 12 article directories.

      There are 32 social bookmarking sites. There are 25 RSS services. There are 110 profile nuke sites.

        imo good idea of ankur to team up with a "well known" marketer - I would do the same
        I have the software but still reading the manual (yes I am a slow reader LOL)

          just a follow up - does this work for anyone?? - 1.44 doesnt work for me

          What I dont understand is this:

          From the beginning there were issues with the email service used (gmail) its a recipe for desaster yet more than 9 month later still the same issues -

          I would cut down on the amount of services used (we already told this ankur several times) and provide a system which works - yet he preferred to add more features....

          in this case - less is more...

            Well, I for one thought that Ross putting his name behind this product would straighten things out. However, I am very disappointed that things are right back to where they were.

            Support is extremely slow at getting back to you. Ankur tries his best but I believe he has health issues which causes lapses in support. I have had weeks of no use with this product. The forum is riddled with spam and when you send a email and ask for support, you will be waiting for days and days with no response.

            Yeah, 1.44 is still not working. Last I heard from Ankur he was on his way to the doctor and havent heard from him since. Where is the other tech support. No one else is getting back to us.

            I hope that word gets back to Ross because I don't think this is something he would put up with. As far as a monthly fee for this. NO NO NO.

            If they get it working, then I'd say it's worth a look. I'll come back and post positive reviews when they are deserved.

            Jose

    Support response has been terrible and I'm about as happy about it as you are.

    By Monday there will be a support desk that I'll be monitoring on a daily basis to be sure that your questions and issues are addressed in a timely manner.

    As far as the technical side of the software, there's nothing I can do to fix those issues. I'm not a programmer.

    As far as email services, aol has been added and creating addresses is now built into the software to make it a less painful process.

    We're doing all we can on our end to fix the issues you're facing with the software and you'll really enjoy using it once everything works as it's supposed to.

      Hi Ross

      I purchased the link wheel membership a week ago. I could not install the software as the reg key page only says script error when you try to generate a reg key.

      I have asked for a refund and a week later I'm still waiting for a reply or a refund. Is there any way you can help me get a refund?

      Thanks

      Graham

        Thanks Ross and Ankur for sorting my refund out. I'm sure it will be an excellent bit of software for those who use it. And when you add the social module its going to be pretty hard to beat.

    really cool to see, people reviewing linkwheel software. I hope you guys get awesome result by using this software.


    1) First of all Ross doesnt hold support department. Its entirely dependent upon me. So, if anything goes wrong with support, blame me, not Ross.

    2) Sometime, i hit by 50 emails with same problem. Its sometime difficult to reply all the emails, sometime we dont even know whats the real cause of problem. It delays response time. But, Ross and me has developed new strategy for it now.

    3)LWS is my passion, its what i eat, sleep and drink. I have only one aim, to make lws one of the best linkbuilding software. Off course, its herculean task, specially when we got limited budget and manpower. Its sometime difficult to juggle all the balls. But i am sure we are doing good job till date and becoming better and better.

    4) LWS is going to be really really big in coming 5 months. Those who purchased lifetime license will be extremely happy. This just remind me of jv manager, if i remember correctly, it was sold for under $100 in first wso. Look at it now, its so much costly now and insanely powerful.I expect same for lws. This is the best time to get lws for $47 per month price or even $297 for lifetime.

    5)You all guys have been extremely kind, supportive to me. I thank all lws buyers from bottom of my heart. Same time i pray to god, that he gives me enough power to make lws extremely big.

    6) If you have any question, you can PM me.


    Thanks

    I saw this thread and felt that I had to add my 2 cents. We have all purchased something that didn't live up to expectations, but I think that alot of people are jumping the gun on this one. I know that the monthly fee isn't "cheap", but this product has the potential to be a powerful tool.

    I don't know Ankur, but I do know Ross Goldberg. Actually, I don't know Ross personally..... but I've been a customer of his for years. His products have helped make me alot of money.

    Personally, I would be willing to give Ross the benefit of the doubt. He takes care of his customers. With him behind the Link Wheel Software, I believe that the support will improve and the other issues will be taken care of. Again this is just my 2 cents.

    John

    Definitely, lws is little difficult to handle. Like the logs posted above, 2 sites didnt work because email got rejected. lws wont work if your emails are used previously. Thats why we included aol generator. It helps you in creating fresh aol email before starting any project.

    The second main reason for lot of websites not working is username. Ross and me discussed a lot on this factor.

    If we use primary keyword as username (while registering), lot of SEO juice we get. Its personal choice of most pro SEO users here. When you register using lws , lws use "primary keyword" as "username". Here's how it works

    Lets say you put primary keyword as "wowgold" and tags as "money,buy,game". Now the way lws works , while registering

    1) In first attempt, it will put primary keyword as username (wowgold)

    If this username is already taken. lws will close registration process and in second attempt use "primarykeyword" + "tag1". In this case, it will be "wowgoldmoney"

    Even if this username is also taken, then in 3rd attempt, lws will put "primary keyword" + 4 digit random number. Like wowgold2654

    As far i know this thing is only present in lws, other softwares user random username generator. Which increases the website success but isnt good for SEO purposes.

    what will you like to have www.squidoo.com/make-moremoney or www.squidoo.com/werer324234

      I think you misunderstand my post and the log. The reason why the email got rejected is NOT because i had used it before, rather because LWS DID, except it did not updated its own record, so on the one hand you have a successful registration on the site on the other you have LWS thinking it failed, so it will try again and of course get the email rejected message. It is NOT an email being reused, it is a failure of the script

        Yes, I too, found it buggy, and tech support response slow/non-existent. My request for a refund has been ignored. I would think twice before bothering with this, unfortunately. Maybe they should've waited a bit before putting it out. I am STILL waiting for my refund.

                After Ankur used to ignore my refund request I just emailed Ross!

                This is simply not working

                1. AOL Email creator isnt working
                2. Maybe 2 of 33 sites are created
                3. The forum is spammed to death and nobody bothers to remove those spam

                  well, aol creator is hit and miss right now. It requires update. We are creating whole database from scratch. Infact 50% of work has already been finished.

                  I will launch new version with new database in next 8 to 10 days. It will also contain all the fixes as far aol and blogs are concerned.

                  The new database is needed to pave way for future lws enhancements.

                  The other thing which we are doing is separating all the processes. First lws will create accounts on all sites, then verification and then posting.

                  The forum will be taken care of. I have to do good amount of cleaning up there. I will start it soon.

                  Ohh, as far refund is concerned. Please PM me your paypal email and i will send you refund today.

                  Thanks

    Till, 20 june things will be slow as far new features are concerned. We will only update 37 blogs or fix any bugs our user encounter. But no new feature. This decision got something to do with my personal life. But after 20 june, expect huge amount of explosion as far new sites are concerned.

    LWS is totally 100% automated software. You got to have

    1) Fresh proxies
    2) good primary keyword and tags
    3) fresh emails.
    4)nice spinned article (blah blah blah wont work )

    Thanks
