What's going on with Build My Rank????

I've recently starting using BMR a few weeks ago after hearing so many good things about it, but I'm getting a little concerned.

I have around 25 or so articles that I've posted so far, and I just looked over all of them and it seems that most of these are posted on pages with 0 or no page rank. Maybe 2 of those actually have the PR that is listed, but the rest are 0.

Anybody have a similar experience with them? Like I said, I've heard lots of good things about the service so this is very surprising. Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions too early? I sure hope so, because I had high hopes for this.

    The posts might have 0 PR but the domain (main page) will have some PR.

    These posts get posted on the main page, then over time get pushed down by new posts.

    If you want links that keep their PR try homepage/blogroll/sitewide backlinks.

      Isn't it the actual page PR that's important, not the domain PR? I'm just going by the PR of actual page that my posts are on, and most of them are 0.

      What's the benefit then if all my articles will eventually be pushed down to 0 PR pages?

      Sorry if I sound a little ignorant, I'm still learning about the whole backlinking thing.

        The word is, PR doesn't really matter, as long as the domain has some sort of domain and your backlink gets indexed that's all that matters.

        It's all about ROI, if BMR gets too expensive there's always other method of linkbuilding.

        That been said, I wouldn't rely on just BMR posts for backlinks, a mixture from different sources is always better.

      Hi uniches,

      The homepage is assigned PR, but not the domain, PR is only assigned to individual URLs (individual web documents), not websites or domains.

      I agree with portion of your post.

    Correct. ppl concentrate to much on PR - it really doesn't matter anymore like it did five years ago.

    Also - sounds like your doing some article marketing. Matt Cutts recently came out and said that Google pretty much looks down on that sort of technique. Grant it - I don't think it will hurt you in the SERPs - but the only thing you'll get out of it is some referral traffic...that's about it.

    I don't use the service, so I can't say for sure, but my understanding is that your articles get posted to a private blog network -- i.e. a blog. If your article creates a new post, then eventually it's going to move off the front page and onto its own newly created page (well, it's already there, of course). A new page is not going to have PR, but if the main page has PR, then some should transfer eventually. But if the main page doesn't have much PR to begin with, you may never get much of a PR boost.

    If you've found where your posts are ending up, then you might point some links to it yourself.

    I've been using BMR for months now and it's def the best blog network. The PR is of the HOME PAGE....NOT your blog post. It's still a GREAT contextual link.

    when your post is just published, it will be on the homepage of that particular domain and during this period you will gain the PR juice until that domain published more post and your post got pushed off from the homepage.

    I have 200+ blog posts on my BMR account and they are ALL indexed.

    This is why....."When your content goes live on our network we create RSS feed mashups and submit to multiple feed aggregators and we also automatically bookmark your content on up to 75 social bookmark sites and other web 2.0 properties. Plus since our domains are all aged with high PR, in most cases posts are indexed within 24 hours by the leading search engines."

    The homepage will still pass on juice to the blog posts but you are right that a PR0 link isn't worth that much even if on a high PR blog. There is no way around this issue with blog networks unless you have your own network.

      Thanks for the input everyone, I guess I misunderstood when I signed up, I'm still learning about backlinking in general. I'll continue with BMR and see how it does since so many people seem to like it.

      I was fortunate enough to have some pretty good success with one of my sites without a whole lot of backlinking so I haven't really bothered to learn much about off site SEO, but my competitors are getting tough with all their fancy backlinks so I'm being forced to jump in the game.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the PR. Yes, the PR in the dashboard is of the homepage on which your post will stick for a while until it gets pushed off. What matters is the influence on your rankings and in my experience BMR is effective in increasing Google ranking. I don't know why and I really don't care why, if it works then it's fine by me. So I guess what I'm saying is give it a while and see if it does the business. Also, queue up 30 posts or whatever to post 1/2 per day.
