    What I've noticed lately is that 99% of the guest post networks are actually blog network sites, I can blame myself on that front as well btw. But really, all of the networks that I gave a trial like content facilitator and such, look like total crappy sites, and the PR of most are poor as well, many PR1's and PR2's that offer no value, and once you catch a higher PR one it's often fake as hell.

    So there sure is room for another one who does things properly, and who uses an extensive verification to see how "real" the site is. Obvious this will be very hard to setup cause who wants to make their site available to a bunch of affiliate marketeers that own crappy sites, so automatically these type of networks/setups are doomed to fail.

    I agree with NikO. Any of these that I have found are nothing more than public blog networks with a different name to make people think they are safer.

      Thank you for your fast reply.

      My CMS will have API to check PR, Indexed Pages, Alexa Rank, Site Age and i look for copyscape.

      Blog Owner will choose if he wanna expose url site or not.

      Also users will receive only writers/blogs on their niche and will have many action tasks.

      Still wait your reply.

      Best,

    I would build in an SEOmoz API to check for Domain Authority / Page Authority and MozRank, as the stats that you sum up right now aren't worth much to determine the strength of a domain, and this API PR checker won't detect if the PR is fake or real, Alexa Rank is also not very reliable to say the least.

    So I would implent these seomoz and perhaps Majestic API stats as well in the user admin.

    Stats how many posts a blog/site receives per day or month would also be nice to have.
