SEO Link Vine - Getting articles published

9 replies
How long does it usually take to get articles published?

I've got two articles in the system, which isn't much, I know, and they're both set for 10 categories.

According to the stats, they haven't been presented to blog owners at all yet, and it's been over a week.

Does it usually take this long?

    Hi Chris, I looked up your name and logged into your account to check things out and I see 0 articles submitted. I'm sure I'm probably looking at a different Chris Ramsey account. Feel free to pm me with your username and I'll have a look and be happy to let you know what you need to change/fix.

    Thanks

    I had a bad experience with SEO Linkvine in terms of article distribution. I canceled after a few months. I had articles that were there for 4 months with a distribution of 0.

    I like Brad Callen and I'm a fan of his, such as My Article Network, that's great, but SEO Linkvine isn't nearly as good in my opinion.

    Hi Jackson, please let me know your email address and I'll tell you why you have no publishes. There is always a reason and I am almost positive it's due to 1 of 2 things:

    1. way too few categories selected
    2. way too low re-write percentage

    Wish you'd have told me this before you canceled so I could help you :-(

    Hi Chris,

    I've been told by Support that there is a "temporary glitch" (their words) at the moment. I had to wait 3 weeks to get two articles published. Previously similar articles were published within 24 hours - and these were no different. Strangely, one was published 10 times, the other 11 times .... then they stopped be published again.

    Have to admit to being annoyed at the lack of support from Support, and the lack of publishing considering that is the main reason I joined.

    Anyway, good luck.

      Hey Vic, the "glitch" lasted about 1 week after launch, and then no more. It had to do with a large influx of users on launch day. I'm 99.9% sure if I looked at your account now, there would be 1 of 2 problems causing the results you saw:

      1. low categories selected
      2. low rewrite percentage

      Fix those, and it would fix the issue.

      Brad
      P.S. What's your email address and I'll look so I know for certain. This kind of stuff drives me crazy until I can give a GOOD answer to help :-)

        With all due respect, that cannot be the case.

        I've been a member for since March, with articles being published within 24 hours, and then regularly daily.

        Three weeks ago I submitted some articles as normal, the same categories selected as normal, the same quality of article, with similar rewrite percentages as I normally use (in this case 45% and 58%). It took over two weeks to get one article published once ... then another week later, 10 more of each ... then nothing.

        I have not done anything different, yet my articles stopped publishing.

        I emailed support and got the reply:

        " looks like you have only been choosing a very limited category number for each article" ...

        The categories chosen were specific for the article, with about 10 chosen - the same as I had always done. I replied the same to Support, and again, and again. It took three more emails over a week to Support till I got the reply:

        "please give it more time."

        I replied explaining what I have stated earlier and got the reply:

        "most likely it is just a temp glitch. I'll make sure that the programmers know".

        So the word from Support on the 19th October is that SEOLinkVine was suffering a glitch.

        It took another week before my articles were published ... oh, and have since stopped.

        Brad, I like SEOLinkVine. It's a great service when it works. I just resent getting fobbed off by Support who assume that I am some dumb-ass who doesn't know how the system works, and who fob me off while not doing anything.

    Hey Vic, thanks for pm'ing me your email address. I'm looking at your account now. You have a very large number of publishes in total.

    The only article with no publishes is the one from today. It might take a couple days before publishing starts.

    The rest range from anywhere from 10 to 231. Your average is right around 80, which is A LOT. That's 80 x 3 = 240 links from 1 article.

    Here's your account: TechSmith | Screencast.com, online video sharing, 2010-10-28_1635 (I kept the article titles private for you)

    I see what you're saying about recent articles getting around 12 publishes, but please keep in mind that is 12 x 3 = 36 links from writing 1 article.

    The norm to expect is anywhere from around 15-80 publishes per article.

    Other article syndication might list higher numbers in some cases, but it's because they aren't publishing to ONLY blogs. They're publishing to very very low quality web 2.0 sites to inflate the numbers their users see. We could do that, but choose not to, because links from blogs are what will get you higher rankings.

    There is no other method of getting so many "in content" links from writing 1 article, than through article syndication.

    My suggestion is to write more articles. I noticed you seemed to write only 3 articles a month, which honestly isn't very many at all. We write 5-10 articles a day. The most successful users are cranking out LOTS of content daily. The more, the better (as long as it's quality, and well spun).

    If you don't like writing yourself, there is an option where you can create an outsourcer account (username, password) and then just pay someone a couple bucks to write, spin, and submit the articles for you.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Brad,

    First of all, thanks for the prompt response, it is appreciated (wish Support was as good).

    Thanks for looking, but the issue was the 2 week delay on getting the second and third last added articles published - not the number of articles published.

    I just added an article today (67% rewrite), so we'll see how long that takes.

    If it's going to take two weeks to get stuff published, that's fine, but it would have been nice if Support said that rather than fob me off.

    Yes, I've slowed down my article publishing. At the start I was doing one a day, but some other projects became more urgent, so I slowed down.

    Thanks again,

    Vic
