Note that this is not the regular SEOLinkVine (cost around $67/mo) which is a network of blogs owned and moderated by other members. This is SEOLinkVine ELITE, which costs over $500/month for the VIP or higher levels.
This is pricey, but we all know that already. What made me decide to try it was the automation. The service is supposed to automatically feed blog posts to a network of high-quality blogs. (If you are a VIP or Super VIP member, they are also supposed to be sent to blogs that aren't available to the Basic members.) In addition, the VIP/Super VIP members are supposed to get a certain number of Home page links on these sites each month.
So far, I've been REALLY frustrated with the whole service.
1. The automation doesn't work. At least it doesn't for me. After a week of waiting for my Home page links to appear, I was told that the system that creates them "got an error." I am still waiting for someone to manually add them for me.
Am I going to have to go through this every month?
2. The automated blog feeds don't seem to be working either... I've been waiting for my posts to show up anywhere, but no luck so far.
3. The quality of the sites is pretty bad. Not only are the lion's share of the blogs either zero or NO PageRank -- pretty disappointing for a "super exclusive blog network of ONLY high Page Rank websites" (their wording, not mine) that costs over $500/month -- but many of the blogs in the manual network have been de-indexed from Google. So, even if you manually post to a "high PR" blog, there's a good chance that Google won't even see it.
I believe these "manual posting" blogs are also used for the automated posting. And surprisingly, most of the de-indexed blogs are the ones in the VIP network... the blogs reserved for the people paying over $500/month.
So far, the "automation" of SEOLinkVine Elite has gotten me nothing. Literally nothing. The only links I've gotten are the ones I have posted manually. And this services is WAY too pricey just for unreliable access to a series of blogs that I have to post to one-by-one. Plus, I am nervous that the best blogs will be de-indexed any minute.
In another thread a WF member said that he knows someone who raves about the service. I don't know why anyone would be raving about this SEOLinkVine Elite... unless it's because the problems in the system has driven them raving mad.
