SEO Linkvine = MyArticleNetwork (AMA)?

27 replies
Brad Callen made some rather good videos describing article marketing tactics for his lead up to the launch of SEOLinkvine, but the product looks exactly like AMA or MAN.

Did anybody else notice this, or am I missing something here?

    With link building services what matters the most is the quality and abundance of sites in the network, unless they are both using the same network who cares if they look identical.

      If they don't come right out and say that the network is unique, then yes you should care. I suppose that is the crux of the comparison if it IS the same network. Not only that, I would assume there is network over-lap regardless because blogs that sign up for one of these would undoubtedly be signing up for another, no? None of these sites ever publish their actual network as far as I know anyway.

      I also found it curious that Brad was marketing this like it was a new way to make peanut butter, when this has been available for what... 3 years now? And why is Mat Callen pushing it too when he was one of the principles of MAN? I just don't get it.

    The point I was making is that just because it looks the same doesn't automatically mean it has the same network. I guess this is something the creator will have to clarify.

    As to overlapping sites, that could occur even if the services looked different.

    I haven't watched any marketing videos, but if the creator made this out to be something new and different, then I agree with you, this system has been in existence for a while now and all it comes down to are the sites in the network.

    Hey guys, I created SEOLV as a private network originally. I then opened it up several months ago to a small portion of my customer base. Since then, the total blog count has grown exponentially.

    Last week we opened it up to 100 more users to further test the system and how it would behave with more users, adding more articles, etc. This way everything was accounted for before it's open permanently. When this many blogs and articles are involved, it takes a lot of backend programming to make things run smoothly as it scales.

    In a little over a week, it will be open permanently. More users = more blogs = more articles = more traffic and better rankings for everyone.

    SEOLV is it's own network entirely, and includes many features and functionality that other networks did not have. I use them ALL. You name it and we probably use it. So, rather than relying on others to add things I really needed added, we built our own. Yes, the core philosophy is not brand new. It's taking something that already works well and making it work 10x better.

    The more links we can get to our sites, the better. I will always use all link building methods. Any article syndication website will benefit you to some degree or another.

    The biggest differences between networks are:

    1. quality of blogs (I know the importance of quality, so we monitor it actively)
    2. number of blogs (More = Better. We're adding 100s of new blogs daily)
    3. tracking capabilities to see whether what you're doing is working or not
    4. functionality features such as article spinning, sorting etc.

    Hope that helps.

      So are you guys personally adding your own blogs aswell?
      Also whats your criteria on content which is submitted for submission?
      Is it tough. I personally know the tougher it is the high quality the network will be.

      Hi Brad,

      I am new to the internet marketing and affiliate marketing thing online. I had to seek lots of help for almost 3 years, prior to trying to run a site online on my own. I noticed you are an online authority, when it comes to internet marketing and making money online. The only thing I am struggling with right now is building quality , free traffic to this site, and other blogs and sites i own. Perhaps there is a way we can keep in touch and network regularly, so that I can start making money online, like the pro's do? I'm not very fortunate in keeping a regular job, and hopes we can network and maybe more. Thank you for your time in reading this message. And, if you'd like, you can also PM my inbox with more possible information. Thanks again Brad, and hope to connect with you soon! :-)

    Hey Brad,

    Yup, that summed it up very well... I can't wait to get my hands on this and give it a shot.

    Thanks

      This opens today at NOON EST I think.

      From my recent experience and case studies involving article syndication and proper spinning, I am going to try this out and see what kind of results I can see versus the results we obtained from our testing with MAN and a couple of other systems.

      Thanks Brad - hopefully this rocks for you.

    Unless Brad decides to reject blogs that are CURRENTLY in MAN to be submitted into the SEOLINKVINE network...:rolleyes:
    Plus, I think the user-friendliness and tools offered surpass the others.

      Thanks Allen, We're just getting started. Like I said in another thread, that's what I LOVE about our IM community. So many smart people that love sharing ideas. In about week, once things die down a bit, I'll be collecting all the awesome user requests to really make SEOLV "ridiculous" :-)

    Brad...I just wanted to commend you on your promptness and willingness to jump into a conversation that almost went into a negative direction. But, you headed it off at the pass and probably have several loyal followers as a result (at least 1 anyway).

    I've seen you speak somewhere before, can't remember where, BIG, SEW, somewhere anyway. But, most speakers are so hidden from the public. I just think you set a great example for those wanting to offer an Internet marketing product and how visible you have to be to do it right from forum participation to posting family pics on your Twitter background to just being genuine. My wife and I will be reviewing your network in the morn. And, that too is how it all works folks.

      Thanks. That means a lot. Let me know if you have any questions or anything and I'll be happy to get you all squared away. Have a nice evening. I just wrapped up the evening watching "Modern Family". I think that's my new favorite. Hilarious and so true.

    Brad, I set up an affiliate link for an ebook I'm writing, but when I test the link it says "missing hoplink" in place of the affiliate name. I generated another hoplink and got the same result.

    I'm afraid you're missing out on getting affiliates. If you get this problem sorted out send me a PM as I will not be monitoring this thread.

    EDIT: When I tried later from a different category the link worked. Maybe CB had a hiccup, or the link generated from the first category doesn't work. Anyway, my problem is solved.

      There's another Link Vine thread with tons more posts in it. I didn't read it yet, but there's a lot more about it in there.

        ha, haven't seen that one yet, our new fav is "parenthood." Took us a while to like the characters but now we're hooked. Sorry, what does this have to do with seo linkvine? Nothing...so we deviate for a moment, big deal.

    I am using a multitude of services. Don't stick with just one. It would be unnatural.

    SEOlinkvine should be part of your link system not the whole system you use. I am sure Brad would agree.

      Yes he would, he also stated clearly that for his prime example for that weight loss site he did not ONLY use his network.
