I ****ed up two of my "test sites", but I learned some lessons I want to share with you.
Crappy link building doesn't work for you.
For website no. 1 I used Matt LaClear's drip feed service. I pay $125 per year. A cheap service, but in a moment you will know why..
My 3+ months old website ranked on page 4. After using this service, it got a page one ranking on the #7 for exactly 4 days. It earned me a total of $7 dollars.
Then, it disappeared. I can't find it in the first 1000+ results.. It earns me now $0 en it gets exactly ZERO visitors.
For website no. 2 I used Unique Article Wizard.
My website was on the 6th page. I used this service and my website was submitted to - in total - 700 article directories & blogs.
Nothing happened to my rankings. They didn't go down - they didn't go up!
For website no. 3 I used again Matt LaClear's service
I wanted to make sure if it was just "accident" or Matt LaClear's service.
I contacted the helpdesk worker to build links for website no. 3.
The website lasted 2 weeks without moving. Then, it suddenly disappeared. From on average 56 visitors and $5 dollars per day, to ZERO visitors and $0 a day.
From my experience I can tell you that you shouldn't use services which build you links with bad spinned texts, from "bad neighbourhood sites", with almost no pagerank and links pointed to them..
I bolded BAD spinned texts, because Unique Article Wizards also use spinned texts, but they are somehow of better quality. However, they didn't improve my rankings. But I have to admit they also didn't hurt my rankings!
Instead of paying $47 per month or more, just build your own network of healthy websites. It will take you time, but it will pay off.
I know one thing for sure, if someone else is building links for you (or their service) the quality is mostly bad, because they don't give a **** about you & your rankings!
