LinkAloha First Impressions – Great Link Building Service Experiment 2011

by on February 22, 2011

The next service I signed up for in the Great Link Building Service Experiment is LinkAloha.

Why LinkAloha second?  Well, after all the effort I had to put into the BuildMyRank site to meet their exacting standards, LinkAloha seemed like an easy win.  And it certainly was.

Unlike the other entries in this experiment, LinkAloha is the only one that doesn’t require a single shred of content to build links.  It’s a link building service plain and simple.  No articles, no content checks, just links links and more links.

Linkaloha uses some standard automated tools to create backlinks on forums and message board profile pages.  There is a tool called XRumer you can buy for around $500, and *IF* you can figure out how to use it *AND* create your own  list of forums and bulletin boards, you can automatically register users on each forum and drop a link on each profile page.  In most cases, these are dofollow links.  HOWEVER, the software is notoriously hard to figure out, is a processor hog, and easy to screw up such that your links are not that valuable.  I figure, why blow $500 on something I don’t have time to learn when I can drop $50 a month and have someone just do all the work for me?

Thus, LinkAloha comes in.  They use their version of the software and their giant list of supported forum sites, AND ping each profile page with various ping service, AND provide you with a list of pages so you can do your own backlinking to give them more strength.

The service was extremely easy to sign up for and configure.  Simple give them your Paypal account and start creating URLs and keywords to link to.

The only drawback was that I needed to create multiple campaigns so that I could vary the link text.  For example, I didn’t want every single link to say “SEO Link Building” when pointing back to my site, that looks too artificial to search engines.  I want a mix of 75% “SEO Link Building”, 10% “Link Building”, 10% “SEO Building Links” and 5% “”.  Note, those aren’t the keywords I’m going for, they’re just to illustrate and example.

Each campaign lets you put in multiple keywords, but no way to specify a percentage.  So I had to manually create 4 campaigns and specify 12 links per day for the first one, 2 for the second, 2 for the third, and 1 per day for the fourth.  All in all it took less than 10 minutes, so really it’s not a huge deal.

BuildMyRank took about 2-3 hours to write eight articles, format them correctly, and upload them.  From those, I’ll only get 8 links total.  I plan on spending another 5-10 hours this month making articles for BuildMyRank, so I’ll end up with around 40 BuildMyRank articles and links total.

LinkAloha took a total of 15 minutes and I’ll get 500 links with no other effort.

Will the 40 from BuildMyRank be so much higher quality that they’ll beat the quantity offering from LinkAloha?  Will UniqueArticleWizard or 1WayLinks beat the pants off both of them?  Only time will tell.

Stay Tuned!

This service isn’t worth the money because with $50, you can get as much as 30,000 links from xrumer blast in fiverr.

Quantity doesn’t equal quality though Flemin. Hitting a site with 3000 identical links all at once in 24 hours will make you stick out like a sore thumb with Google and likely get your site put in sandboxville.

The nice thing about LinkAloha is the flexibility to drip links slowly to your site. You can pick unlimited keywords too, so you could do 10 links a day for 1 keyword, 5 links for another, and so on. This lets you create a more natural backlink profile. They also ping all your profile pages for increased chance of them being indexed.

They provide a report of all links created so you can backlink your links and have proof of the work. It’s ongoing too, so I don’t have to worry about finding an new fiverr offer every day. Set it and forget it.
