If you're signed up to Linkvana, is there any point in using Ezines?

What reason would you continue using Ezines?

    One more quick question. With linkvana, what do you do if you want to use 2, 3 or more keywords for the same page?

    Say for example i want various keywords for my main index page www.domain.com

    What do i do? Do i just type the same web address several times with a new keyword after the | character?

      I'm not familiar with Linkvana, but if you create your link with the keyword at the end, and you don't have an actual page on your web site that contains such a link, then people who click on that anchored text would get a page not found. ie: you can't use domain.com/paintball if you don't have such a page on your site.

    I believe that you can only use one anchored text link which means that it you could only use one keyword. I guess you could anchor the text how you describe it but I don't know what the effect would be.

    Sorry for the multitude of questions but i'm just wondering how i can use linkvana to target keywords in google?

    Would i be right in thinking that linkvana will not bring me traffic, that i should create unique and targeted articles only for my website, then use linkvana to power them up the google rankings by gaining anchored keyword backlinks for them?

    I must admit i'm impressed with linkvana, considering it takes 5 minutes max to create a 100 word snippet and i'm guaranteed a backlink for each.

    They only allow one backlink per post. Just create more snippets with your other keywords.

    These days marketing is no longer based on the real quality of the product or service.

    Nor will the popularity be based on the people behind the product and the satisfied users.

    It will now be based on how fast a person can acquire a link service.

    It's a bit sad.

      The problem with this train of thought is that you're confusing link popularity with qualtiy.

      The truth is, ever since link pop became a ranking criteria, it favored the corporate type sites and discriminated against the small, "mom/pop" independant sites.

      Now, instead of favoring the corperate type sites, it favors those that engage in link building campaigns. I don't see much difference.

      Just because link pop was "honest" before, doesn't mean it was always accurate when picking qualtiy.

      Just like the home-coming king and queen were the most popular kids, that didn't mean they were the best kids.

      IMO, link pop has always been an over-rated way to rank pages. I've watched SERPs for 12 years in some niches, and while today's results are more relevant, they lack the diversity that SERPs of the past gave us.

      Let me give you an example...12 years ago, a search for "las vegas" would include a site that listed every movie that Las Vegas was a part of...It was a very long and interesting list. Another site listed was one that had a collection of old time Las Vegas post cards.

      Both of these sites were created by non-marketers that created the sites just for fun. Once link pop became a factor, sites like these could no longer keep up with the corporate sites like the casinos' home pages and the local news media sites.

      Sure, the top 20 "las vegas" sites are now all highly relative, what's missing from the top sites are these smaller, unique sites, each with it's own perspective.

      Since this "flavor" has pretty much been eliminated due to link pop, I don't jave a problem with web masters manipulating the SERPs. Plus, who is to say that some of these sites are not actually better? Just because some sites build links doesn't mean that their sites are crap...It's entirely possible that their sites are actually better, at least in some cases.

    Generally speaking, you're not going to get traffic from your Linkvana posts, but they will increase your rankings in the SERPS.

    I use both, and still get 75% of my traffic from EzineArticles

    They are different animals.

    Linkvana will help you get links to elevate your own site in the SERPS - as was mentioned by sree94. You should have different links from there feeding the pages you want to push up. You can deep link if you like to category pages as well.

    EZA will get you traffic and your article itself may rank well providing you a slippery dip effect back to your site. That page will also give you a nice link to your site.

    You should do both.

      With Linkvana you get better rankings (and that depends on a hundred different factors) but with Ezine you get Search Engine credit and traffic. A few of my sites ONLY get traffic from Ezine. It's simply one of the best (and fastest) ways to get traffic.
