    I use tom's backlink booster which works nice for me. Linklicious is slightly more expensive and I never try it before. I hear many positive reviews about linklicious too. Anyway I think they are more or less the same.

    Linklicious is $14.50/month and will ping and track crawls up to 300,000 links at that price. Backlink Booster is more concerned with indexing and doesn't have nearly the same volume.

    Linklicious is better for profiles and getting serp improvement from awareness while BB is better for indexing a smaller amount of links.

      Hi Everybody,

      I want to be upfront and let everybody know that I own Backlink Booster (aka BacklinkBooster.com or "Tom's Backlink Booster"), so please keep that in mind when reading my analysis below.

      I get asked the BB vs LL question a lot and I will be as impartial, factual, and non-promotional as possible to point out the differences in the two products as objectively as I can.

      HKSEO Extropy is correct...LL will process more links per month than BB. LL will process up to 300,000 links per month (possibly even more) while BB will process up to 108,000 links per month. Having said that, there are significant differences between what LL and BB do when they each process a link.

      When LL processes your link, it writes your link to its RSS feed and then pings that feed to get that feed crawled by the search engines. LL then tracks when that feed has been crawled by search engines. This doesn't necessarily mean the page your backlink is on was actually crawled or indexed; it means the RSS feed that has the link to your backlink was crawled.

      LL provides value because you can't get your links indexed if the search engines don't know about them. And LL uses its RSS feed to let the search engines know about your links in an effort to encourage the search engines to crawl the page that has the link to your site. And LL's high monthly processing volume can help you get the word out to the search engines about A LOT of your backlinks that you want the engines to crawl. This can be very worthwhile to helping get your links crawled.

      Since getting your link crawled is the first step in getting credit for it, BB takes a different approach to processing your links. BB does 5 things whenever it processes one of your links with the goal of getting your link crawled AND indexed.

      BB first checks your link to make sure it is valid, and then automatically pulls relevant titles and descriptions from your link that are used to boost your link. BB next boosts your links by posting your link on 30+ social networking sites. BB then publishes your link on 100's of RSS directories. Finally BB places your link on 31 in-content sites. Lastly, BB pings the search engines to let them know your link exists so the search engines crawl them. By pinging the search engines after doing the previous 3 steps, it increases the chances the search engines will crawl the link and give you credit for it because your link now has a lot more credibility to it as a result of the hundreds of other pages now "voting" for it.

      BB processes fewer links each month than LL because doing all of the above takes more time to complete. However, this process increases the likelihood that your links will be indexed by the search engines, which has a major impact on increasing your site's ranking in SERPs, instead of just being crawled and ignored.

      I'm not saying one product is better than the other...they just function very differently. You could boil it down to quantity vs quality: LL processes a high volume of links each month with the focus of letting the search engines know that your links exist to help them get crawled, while BB focuses on boosting the credibility of each of your links to help them get indexed when they do get crawled.

      Having said that, our BB customers often ask us if they should use LL in conjunction with BB and we tell them absolutely...it can't hurt The two tools work very well together to combine quantity and quality, and anything you can do to get your links indexed is usually worthwhile.

      I hope I was able to present a relatively impartial analysis of these two products. I realize I have a slanted opinion, so please keep that in mind. In any event, hopefully this at least provided something you can use when comparing the two products for yourself and your situation.

      Best of Luck!

        I appreciate your time and effort answering my questions . I have just started domain flipping and I have realized that even if i have matching keywords domains + good backlinks it takes some serious time getting them indexed. My way of making money is by getting my domain in top 3 on SERP and sell it to competitors. Time is money so if this could help my domains climb ranks faster I would certainly need it.

        Can this program also help me re-crawl websites?

        Thanks in advance!

        Absolutely..I wish more people actually tested as much as we do.

        Look to the SERPs, not the index numbers. Those numbers are constantly in flux as google changes what is in the index. However, SERPs are the ultimate goal so you can get people to your sites and make some money.

        If we wanted we could build an indexing service that just killed it. But I don't believe in that type of service at all - it's just smoke and mirrors that some people get hung up on instead of figuring out why their sites aren't ranking.

        Indexing is a function of backlinks to the page, page content, page age, domain, and who knows what else.

        That said, Linklicious will help your indexing some. We just don't want to preach it because in our tests it doesn't cost justify.

        Anyway, you sound like you are on the right track, keep testing and happy linking brother!

    Hi Parto,

    I'm glad I could help. Regarding your question about getting your sites re-crawled, BacklinkBooster.com can do that when you use the built-in Boost Button. Just visit any of the pages on your site and click the Boost Button and BB will promote that page across social networking sites, RSS feeds, and in-content sites, and then ping the search engines to crawl that page. You can also import the URL for those pages and they will be boosted automatically.

    I can't speak for LL, but I'm guessing it could do it too. I would think if you enter the URL of the page you want to boost into their system, it will post it on their RSS feed which they then ping to search engines to entice them to crawl the page. (You might want to ask LL directly on this as I'm not positive, but my guess is it would work for you.)

    Best Regards,

    Tom

    I personally like Backlink booster. Its the links you wanna index not get them crawled. because merely crawling of google spider does not guarantee a indexation of the backlinks. No use of LL if it cannot help us index backlinks.

      Sorry for hijacking the thread, but @Backlinkbooster:

      I see that backlinkbooster is currently giving 401 errors.

      Wanna give us some feedback about what's happening? It's all well and good upgrading the service, but when that translates to a number of days lost in accessabilty, One would expect some form of damage control at least.

      Google is a fickle monster, and the sudden slowdown in new backlinks is hurting my serps.

      Regards

        Hi Dave,

        I'm happy to say that everything is back online now.

        We added another server last night which inadvertently took the site offline for a few hours. However, the upgrade is complete and working very well.

        Backlink Booster is more powerful than ever, and we can now process more than 50 million links per month. This gives us plenty of room to grow going forward so we don't experience anymore growing pains, and we can quickly increase that even more as needed.

        For more information on the upgrade to the system, the details are on the Backlink Booster Account Manager Dashboard. We will also add them to the Backlink Booster home page for general reference. But please let me know if you have any questions, and I would be happy to answer them.

        I appreciate your patience and look forward to great things to come.

        Best Regards,

        Tom

          Thanks for the response.

          I'm glad all is back up, it's just a bit worrying when even the sales page of a site throws an error!

          Thanks for an awesome service, and here's to seeing the last of the gremlins conquored.

          Cheers

            Thank you very much for the compliment...it is greatly appreciated!

            And I agree with you completely about the site being offline. We didn't expect the main database server to go offline while adding the additional server, and it caught us off-guard. (Freaked us out actually.) I think I've aged 6 years in the past 6 weeks.

            Here's to much smoother sailing going forward!

    A question about mass indexing links
    when indexing 1k-5k backlinks per day all together (packages in rss feeds, pings and social bookmarking)
    Are we saying this to goggle?
    -hey man, these are my spam-​​junk profile links, please index all
    Is this fine?

    BTW, rss is not working for me (for indexing)

      That's a good question, and I'd be happy to address it.

      There are two important points to consider (which I'm sure you are familiar with, but I'll state them for arguments sake):

      1. Google's rankings are primarily based on links to your site (regardless of how much they try to discount that fact), so you need to build both high quantity and/or high quality links to your site to rank higher in SERPs.

      2. Just building links to your site doesn't guarantee that they will get crawled and/or indexed. That's where boosting comes in...it helps increase the number of your links that get indexed, and by default also increases the quality of each link to your site.

      Having said that, it's important to remember that when you boost your links you are not doing anything against Google's TOS. Plus, you are boosting the pages that link to your site, so your efforts have a degree of separation from your money sites. Finally, Google has publicly stated on numerous occasions that they will not punish your site for links TO your site because you cannot control who links to your site. (Links FROM your site are a completely different story.)

      As a result, boosting your links is a very safe strategy to use, whether you are boosting high-quality links or boosting "spam-junk profile links." If Google crawls your lower-quality links and still doesn't see value in those pages, then Google won't hold those links against your site. Rather, Google's form of "punishment" for those links (as Google states in GWT) is they simply will not index them and not give you credit for them. (BTW...this is where reboosting these types of links comes in handy.)

      So while boosting your links is a good idea, the root of your question is: "Is it ok to boost all of your links as quickly as possible?" Some people want to boost all of their links as fast as possible, but our recommendation is to even out your boosting over the course of a month as much as possible. If you have 3,000 links to boost each month, then boost about 100 links per day instead of 3,000 all at once. (Backlink Booster lets you set your boosting rate as low as 25 and as high as 3,600 links per day. I'm not sure what LL lets you set your processing level to.)

      The result of evening out your boosting is you have a consistent flow of new backlinks for Google to check every day, instead of a huge spike and then nothing for a while. While boosting all of your backlinks at once won't hurt your site, in our tests it revealed that it can hurt the indexation rate of your backlinks. Steady, even boosting resulted in a higher indexation rate overall than blasting away upfront and then doing nothing for a while.

      I hope this helps, and I apologize for the long-winded (and sometimes remedial) answer. If you have any additional questions or comments, I'd be glad to address them (in a more concise manner).

      Best Regards,

      Tom

          [QUOTE=Getting profile-junk backlinks its so "unnatural" for G, is not against the Google's TOS?[/QUOTE]

          My comment about complying with G's TOS was more related to boosting (not building) those links, but you have a good point and I agree that getting profile backlinks is borderline in terms of complying with G's TOS.

          However, based on the only credible information (from GWT and a comment by Matt Cutts) that G provides on the subject, G still won't hold those links against you because they have no idea if you built those links or your competitor did. Having said that, G also may not give you credit for those links.

          In our experience, we found profile links can (and do) provide value when you build them at a reasonable rate. A LOT of them are discarded by G, but quite a few stick as well (especially after being boosted).

    I have seen SERP improvements for my websites with Linklicious.

    This tool is very useful especially for those cheap and crappy forum profile links and blog comments. Most of these cheap links are not even crawled by Google. Linklicious will make sure they are crawled by Google. This is enough for SERP improvement.
