Let me build the story a little. Once upon a time, I read the book called The New Rules of Marketing and PR by Meerman Scott. I started following his advice relating to building traffic organically. I quickly found this to be ALOT of work! I am by no means adverse to hard work but it was sucking all available time I needed to develop my biz so I scrapped the whole SEO thing and went into PPC and content network to drive my traffic.
Then along came a group who were promoting a system called Web Content Flood. Anyone heard of it? It's very new but in a nutshell they provide an interface where you can quickly upload your keyword dense articles and / or videos. They then take those media and publish them to their various sources to a) develop credibility for you and your company and b) create backlinks.
Additionally, these articles will be automatically published to your FaceBook page and your blog taking some redundancy out of your day.
This service will publish about 4 articles / videos per week in this fashion at a cost of $300 / mos.
Since starting the service a little over a month ago, I have gone from around 200 ish backlinks to a little over 700 ish backlinks but as far as I can tell by going to my webmaster account and following the links, these links are from predominantly PR0 - PR2 web pages.
I think I am grossly over paying but want to get a more informed opinion.
PS. Just went back in to my webmaster account to double check the PR of the links and now see that as of today my links have dropped right back down to where they had been before starting the service!
