Overview of SEOLinkvine
SEOLinkVine is a BRAND NEW service brought to you by Brad Callen, it has just been officially released to the public, so this is a preliminary review. It should be pointed out that there are services that are somewhat similar to it, like Matt Callen’s MyArticleNetwork (MAN) or ArticleMarketingAutomation (AMA) and this particular service is based on a similar concept. In fact it appears to be a carbon copy of MAN albeit they say it is unique. But what SEOLinkvine provides you is link diversity with a whole new set of sites to provide you backlinks. The basic concept is they match those who need to submit articles to a ton of websites for the purpose of backlinks with those who need content for their sites, again not a unique concept, but it is a win win as proven by the likes of MyArticleNetwork and ArticleMarketingAutomation and even Unique Article Wizard. But while MAN and AMA both share the exact same system and network, SEO Linkvine is a completely new system and network of sites, providing link diversity, (this was verified with support).
So on the outside the service looks like a duplicate of My Article Network and Article Marketing Automation. The interface, while it has been redone with a fresh look is basically the same in concept. There are however a few additions which SEOLinkvine has and that MAN and AMA do not. #1. When you add a project, you are able to assign a project name to your article. This is a feature that is lacking in MAN and AMA and one that we love and need. We have hundreds of spun articles we regularly pump through MAN, keeping track of them is a bear. Being able to group them into projects is a necessity for us and for anyone else with many sites to promote. This is a feature that SEO Linkvine has and MAN or AMA does not when comparing SEOLinkvine to MyArticleNetwork or ArticleMarketingAutomation.
Another feature that SEO Linkvine has and MyArticleNetwork and ArticleMarketingAutomation do not have, is that it does not show the spun titles on the article view page. Let me explain, with the others we would load an article and then go check it out in my article view. The title is spun, so it would have a different title every time in my article view, which drove us insane. With SEOLinkvine they show the full title with spin syntax included, allowing a unique title when sifting through your articles. This is huge for us as well.
As for the remaining features, thus far the rest seems to be on par with MAN and AMA. You can add three (3) links into the body of each article, no need for cheesy resource boxes like UAW etc. The articles get published to blogs where the owners are not allowed to alter your articles. I am not sure how well they police this, but for the most part people leave them alone. We have seen some instances of people removing our links in MAN and suspect the same will occur with SEOLinkvine. But you take the good with the bad knowing that 90% of the users will abide by the rules and the remaining 10% will eventually go away.
For users who are not familiar with the other products here is what it does in a nutshell. Just like any procedure utilized in article marketing, you need to produce articles and insert your backlinks in them for your coveted keywords. However, instead of submitting your articles to hundreds of directories and hoping that a large number of other website owners will pickup your article and re-post it on their websites, you simply submit your articles to SEO Linkvine and they will handle the article submission to their member sites who are simply standing by and waiting for your articles, with your links and all. They want content, you want backlinks, everybody wins. This is exactly how MAN and AMA work, so we can tell you from our results with those networks, that this process works, and works really well.
One of the great features of SEOlinkvine is it’s ability to “spin” articles. While using it, the spinning was very much the same as MAN and AMA, which is great because we have always loved their interface. And just like MAN and AMA you don’t have to spin your content, but it is strongly advised if you want to maximize your distribution, most blog owners will more than likely reject your content if it isn’t spun, and they will see the percentage at which it is spun, so you can’t game the system. What is great for us is that you can take a pre-formatted, spun article and paste it in, unlike UAW whose spinning mechanism can be cumbersome at times, to say the least.
Overall, SEOLinkVine appears to offer yet another great service to improve site traffic through the use of a blog network. It also provides an important service for website owners who need to acquire unique articles on a regular basis. Not to mention it’s being released by Brad Callen, which has always done us right with products such as Keyword Elite and SEO Elite, and I am sure it doesn’t hurt that his brother Matt own’s My Article Network, so maybe some tips have been shared.
The most powerful features here are first the size the of the network and second the ability to easily distribute your articles to it. The network just opened today 3/31/2010. We have submitted a couple articles, so we cant speak for the size of the distribution just yet, but we will be reporting back on that shortly. However based on the claims of network size, I would expect similar results to MAN and AMA.
The beauty is we can load articles and let them distribute on autopilot until you either delete the articles or cancel your service. So the backlinking effects can be compounded over time.
Another great feature that SEOLinkvine appears to have that My Article Network and Article Marketing Automation do not have is that you can select how many articles you want to be sent out on any given day, and how many total before distribution stops. Us personally we max it out. But others may wish to stagger that. We will be adding dozens of articles on a daily basis and once they are entered, it is set it and forget it. Just sit back and watch the backlinks come in over time. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
What SEO Linkvine presents us is NOT a replacement for MAN or AMA, it is an addition, we now have a whole new set of sites to get backlinks from. We will continue to use MAN, UAW, ASA, Linkvana, BLS, and a few other private networks, this will not change that, we will simply be adding SEOLinkvine to the mix for link diversity which is always important for us. At the time of this writing we haven’t been able to see what the network will actually return in the form of backlinks, but as stated earlier I have a feeling it will be on par with AMA and MAN. We will be editing this review later once we have some progress reports on article distribution.
UPDATE (4/1/2010) – It has been about 32 hours since I submitted a test article in the real estate niche into SEO Linkvine. Thus far the article has been picked up by 28 websites and going strong. I have received 7 pingbacks, 1 site was PR2, 2 sites were PR1 the remaining four were PR0. Pretty much on par with AMA and MAN.
UPDATE (4/2/2010) – 56 hours since I submitted a test article in the real estate niche into SEO Linkvine. Thus far the article has been picked up by a total of 39 websites and going strong.
UPDATE (4/7/2010) – 7 days since I submitted a test article in the real estate niche into SEO Linkvine. Thus far the article has been picked up by a total of 74 websites and still going.
UPDATE (4/23/2010) – 23 days since I submitted a test article in the real estate niche into SEO Linkvine. Thus far the article has been picked up by a total of 184 websites and still going.
As was already mentioned, this service is quite similar to the service that is available at My Article Network or Article Marketing Automation, and so the price is the same as well at $67. Each service uses a network of websites who are looking for unique articles to publish on their sites. Each system boast 1000′s of sites, each system requires their publishers to spin their articles so each distributed article is unique, and each system has an amazingly simple interface. To us that’s worth $67 all day long. From a simplicity and interface standpoint SEOLinkvine looks to be better, from a results standpoint, well that remains to be seen, but thus far it has produced a wider distribution than we have been receiving with MAN as of late.
