SEOLinkVine vs UAW vs AMA - Which one?

by Jet 35 replies
I'm considering an article marketing & distribution service.

I've heard good things about all 3 so I'm looking for opinions on which one I should sign up for. Are there any better ones than these 3?

SEO Link Vine

Unique Article Wizard

Article Marketing Automation

I'm simply looking to distribute my articles across the net.

    Hi JH,

    We have good experience with UniqueArticleWizard, but not tried the other two. As per my partner's report, SeoLinkVine is best and they beat the other two.

    According to Alexa, SeoLinkVine is more popular.

    Alexa Rank of;

    SeoLinkvine: 1,858 (Google pagerank: 4)
    UniqueArticleWizard: 3,197 (Google pagerank: 4)
    ArticleMarketingAutomation: 6,732 (Google pagerank: 3)

    For the keyword "article marketing", UniqueArticleWizard is # 4 in Google.

    Regards,
    Ali.

      Thanks Ali,

      What else does UAW give you other than distributing your articles which the others don't give you?

      Why does your partner believe SEO LinkVine is better than the rest? Has he tried the other two?

      hmm... Both are article syndication networks, but they are not the same thing. Both have entirely different networks of blogs. There is no overlap. SEO Link Vine has its own network shared by no one.

      MAN and Article Marketing Automation (AMA) are the same thing, in terms of having the same network of blogs.

        Hi Brad,

        Could you tell me in what respects your product is better than the other two?

        I know UAW submits Spun articles. Does yours do the same?

        Does yours do more than the other 2 in any respect and does the other 2 do more than yours in any aspect?

    Do any of these blog networks mention PR of the sites they are distributed to? because it's alright saying that an article is distributed throughout 1000 sites, but if they are PR0/1, then that might not help in the slightest

      UAW is more traditional article marketing. You write an article and put a couple links at the footer. The other two let you add in text links to your site which looks more natural.

      They all really get the job done. I've tries UAW, it works, I'm trying out SEOLinkvine and think it will be at least as good if not better, but we shall see.

      You know I was always told to submit my article to the top 10 high PR dircetories. But when I started using these systems I quickly found out that high PR directories are overrated.

      All sites will help you out whether the homepage is a PR 6 or 0.

        That's actually a myth - UAW DOES allow you 2 in-body (in the context of the article body) links per domain. I haven't tried to put in 4 links yet, but it's funny how many myths get disseminated - this is plain mis-information (no doubt unintentional).

        Another reader here asked if UAW offers anything else the others don't:

        1) They've been doing it for...what? 4 years? They know what they're doing.

        2) They allow you to add images, audio and embed/host your video there. Traffic Geyser, anyone?

        3) They have a GREAT option for those who want content: you can have a plugin for a fully automated autoblog, OR you can accept the articles via email either as plain text or as html...

        I'm not an "either/or" guy (unless you're asking me about my wife: either my wife, or nobody!) -- I think the original question was a false dichotomy of sorts. (Or was it a trichotomy?)

        SEOLV is put out by Brad - I would have to say he's earned respect. You can bet his network will improve over time, and grow. AND it's a network that doesn't overlap his brother's MAN.

        MAN/AMA has a reportedly immense network - and has a nice interface (so does SEOLV).

        UAW has a horribly small window to put in your pre-spun content...BUT they work like crazy.

        I'm actually going to be including the Callens' networks in my marketing in future, but I've been happy with UAW. I've taken page 1 of Google by storm using UAW and now Magic Submitter, Magic Article Submitter, Article Bot...

        The real question is not which is better, but how many of these can you afford at once? Brad's set up is great: you can buy as you go and try them out.

        I personally cancelled my SEOLV subscription because I couldn't get the thing to work (those first few weeks were buggy, but understandably as I've said), but they ARE in my future plans. I want to write less, submit more, and will report my findings at my blog (the average genius dot net).

          Very cool, does that mean you can add up to 4 backlinks in the article, 2 in text and 2 in the footer? Or is it either 2 in text or 2 in footer? I'm going to try it.

          The worst they can do is reject my article and have me edit out the links.

      Hey Ruchi, in the "real world", natural links come from all sorts of page rank pages. 0-7 in most cases. What we're doing is trying to mirror the "real world" as close as possible, so with SEOLV we don't focus on Page Rank at all. Members submit articles and they're distributed 100% randomly to related blogs ranging anywhere from PR0 to PR7.

      I'll gladly take 1,000 PR0 or PR1 links a month for $500, let alone $47-$67 if you want to sell them to me :-)

          Hi JH, yeah, ours works just like the others in that it submits spun articles to blogs.

          As for what makes our better etc. The mods don't really like when the product owner responds in the reviews section with this kind of stuff, so I probably shouldn't answer that question here. You can pm me if you want.

          Thanks

    Hi JH,

    I use UAW and have done for just over a year and a half now - if you're consistent with it (i.e. post an article or two every week per domain) it really does work. I like the fact that it's unlimited submissions and unlimited domains/projects for UAW - I'm not sure if the others offer this because I haven't used them.

    I did try MyArticleNetwork and I wasn't too impressed but I doubt I gave it enough time to be honest. I haven't tried the others but if you're just looking to distribute articles across the web I'd say go with UAW. You can add videos and images as someone else said and it's easy to use.

    I'd say start with whichever one you can realistically afford first and then dabble in the others as and when you can afford it. IM is all about testing after all!

  • Its all depends of the keywords your targeting and how well your domain is optimized to start with,

    Depending on the situation and set of factor which you can control as a webmaster all three can be awesome but at the same time all three can suck.

      Hi Brad,
      Sorry not able to PM Brad as new member so sorry to be airing dirty washing. This is very important to me and you support don't answer very often..

      Umm well lets go a little deeper.

      This is charles response last week

      "Hi, we are upgrading the server over the next couple days to fix this issue. Thanks so much for your continued patience!!"

      Therefore he is strongly infering there is a bug ? Over 3 weeks ago I had a problem whereby your system killed my subscription even though I had paid. I reported the problem and it was "fixed" but since then NO new publishes on any new posts have worked in 3 weeks. That seems to be more than a co-incidence. Please can you just double check with Charles on what is happening I'm not prepared to think it is a wait and see thing.

      Shaun.

    I have been using Linkvine for a week and have only just started to find my articles - well, found 1 out of 55 so far and that had nofollow tags on the links AND the site owner had inserted their own links too so my article now had 8 or 9 outbound links - their links were to spammy crap and mine were nofollow (theirs weren't of course).

    I have reported it to Brad's lot to see what happens but if this is the sign of what's to come I will not be happy. Let's hope this was just the first (and only) turd in the swimming pool.

    I use seolinkvine and am very happy with it. I don't monitor everything like a micro manager. I monitor the important thing and that is results. I have seen easy keywords go from # 15 to #3-5 with Seolinkvine alone. That is all that matters to me is if it works or not at improving ranking. If some sites put no-follow, then I guess oh well.

      Remember that with any service like this that spins content (assuming yours is spun) You'll have to try all possibilities of the spun text to find everything that's been indexed.

      In saying this, I would like some sort of a feature on SEOlinkvine that allowed you to track links. This was the only problem I have with it, how are we supposed to see if our links are still there or if our content is being stolen or what?

      But as someone else mentioned in the forum, it's the results that matter so I look forward to seeeing some (I only started a few days ago)

      I love SEO linkvine though, it's easy to use and very intuitive. The autocontent function on the other side of the program works seamlessly with wordpress.

    Thanks Marc, Yeah, i thought about that, but the point of this is to make articles look 'unique', with an exact phrase in each article, that leaves a pretty strong footprint.

    If i remember correctly, UAW had a feature to track your posted articles. I don't understand why there seems to be nothing similar for SEOLV.

      Well they tell you the pages that it is submited to. Most site won't do that. They do have another way to find them, but if your article is well spun it won't work.

      The phrase needn't be very long. Do you use pen names? Choose a unique pen name.

      UAW gives you a google search link if you choose 3 article titles not if you spin. If you spin the title you are out of luck.

      I just don't know how big a deal the "footprint" is. In UAW you can rotate 3 titles which means there are 1/3 of your posts that have a specific phrase. If you are comfortable with that then you can spin three unique phrases to track it's publication.
      {phrase1|phrase2|phrase3}
      then search google for
      "phrase1" or "phrase2" or "phrase3"

    In SEO Link Vine you don’t get to choose where your posts will go (other than category) and it’s more hands-off (sort of a content distribution/syndication service).

    I only have a couple fears about such blog networks and would appreciate if anyone could answer them.

    I was told as these blog networks gets more popular and attracts more attention of imers and webmasters then eventually google would null these network so call SEO link juice

      It seems it will evolve over time since these are not his sites so I think this fear of yours won't really come to fruition. Sites will come and go so to speak.

        Ok Thanks, that's a great help. I don't want to put in the effort only for a temporary fix worse it'll be for client sites so I don't want them to waste their money on my fees if it's only going to help them for a month or two.
