The slave labor is getting a bit cheeky isn’t it? So, in an effort to get yet another IM tool free for me via affiliate commissions today I am going to talk about and review Build My Rank 😉

Well, I say a Build My Rank Review but I won’t be throwing made up facts and figures and talking nonsense. The best way is for you to take the free trial and check it out for yourself. More on that in a bit. I was trying to think of a way to sum up my experience with them so far over the last couple of weeks and the best way I can describe it is “It’s like having a box full of typing monkeys on Meth Amphetamine”.

Allow me to explain.

Basically a lot of you will have been using the brilliant Postrunner backlinking system as part of the Keyword Academy package, and if you haven’t taken advantage of this amazing system that is FREE for the first month then you are mental.

But when I came across Build My Rank I kind of couldn’t believe it. The simple fact is that you can quickly write 150 words to get a very good quality backlink. Write 300 word articles for 2 links. But the fact is that more weight is going to go to a 150 word post with a keyword specific post title and a relevant keyword anchor.

But even if you continue to write 300 word articles like you do with Postrunner then you get much higher quality backlinks. There are 750 plus sites in their network all mostly Page Rank 1 to 6. We haven’t gone too mad with the system yet but here is what we have from the system so far.

Try getting that from Postrunner! Not that I am knocking them, I think it is one of the best ways to get good links bar none. But adding Build My Rank in to the mix has set our sites in to overdrive.

I am not going to go in to the changes in ranks etc, if you read my stuff then you know that mostly I don’t get in to that. I basically just keep going with links until I get to where I want to be.

Suffice to say, that those links have sent the competition running scared like little baby rabbits with pink tu-tu’s on. Big fluffy bunny babies that they are.

The sites themselves are pretty sweet. From what I have seen the system is nice and quiet in so far as it it not overrun by other users. This means that when you get a post in to the system it stays on the home page for a good few days. This gives you all that home page link juice and it is not split by millions of other articles, just a nice small number.

The interface is an absolute dream. No having to decide where to submit, you simply click a button that says “publish and write another” and you are good to get on with your work. It makes the speed at which you can write your content amazingly fast. The interface also shows you the PR of the site that your article is listed on and they have an algo that checks a few times each day to see if your article is indexed.

How many of our article have been indexed so far? Let me just check…………………..

Everything that went live more than 10 days ago apart from 2 submissions are indexed. Not bad if you ask me. This is with no work on our end apart from writing them. So, as I can see very easily on the interface which articles have not been indexed yet I can just do a simple Onlywire submission to get them found. EDIT: Please see from comment 15 below for clarity on this. Turns out all articles get indexed with nothing to do on our part, but you can’t see where the articles are posted until they are indexed. Me being a Muppet there (very unusual that).

It is hard for me to really explain the whole interface and what you see once you begin using the system. The best thing is for you to take a look yourself.

And the beauty is that you can join for FREE and send in 10 article submissions. You don’t need to add any payment details or anything, just sign up for a free trail and check out the interface and see why I like it so much.Then you can really see if you like it or not. I guarantee that you will. It costs $57 a month, but I can tell you that because of the link power from the sites used we have made that back in buckets full already.

If you like Postrunner you will love Build My Rank. If you want to use a network that is not overrun because they simply do NOT allow spun content then this is for you. You get home page authority positions for a good few days and the whole interface has to be seen to be believed. It is so smooth that you simply sail through your article in a couple of minutes. No messing about, just write, publish, write, publish.

Just like having a box full of typing monkeys on Meth Amphetamine.

Give it a go.

I really do feel like I should write a disclaimer about any tools I recommend. They work, and very well, but they are tools. I talk about what I do openly here but it is up to you to decide if you are running a risk by using such things. If in doubt use them to send to support sites or to boost existing links. It’s up to you. I am not responsible for what happens, just be sensible about your approach to your sites.

Um, yeah. I feel better now.

  1. Hey Dave,

    Ive been reading your blog for a while after I came across a link to it on the TKA forums. Go you. I like your style. Just wanted to plug Postrunner. Ive got 5 double listings for a new niche site that I sent just 40 backlinks to from postrunner sites. YAY. Also wanted to direct you and your readers to a case study Dan is doing here: http://linkvanareviews.com/build-my-rank-latest-and-greatest-test

    I havent yet started using them for backlinks but I will soon. Looks good 🙂

    @Mason,

    Good stuff Mason, you can’t beat a good ‘ole double listing. Postrunner definitely does rock, it is just I am running out of sites there that I haven’t posted to.

  2. So, I don’t get it – they don’t spin?

    I’m lame for asking, maybe, but are you saying you just write an article, publish, and that’s that? Does that then count as dupe content, and if so, doesn’t that wind up in the supplemental index?

    (This seems to be the case with my syndicated articles on Ezine, etc.)

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @JamestheJust on Elance,

    You write an article and it gets published to 1 site only. Each one is unique, it gets checked before it goes live. They are running a tight ship with no spinning to keep the amount of content on the network reasonable. It means each article gets its fair share on the home page.

    Plus they backlink every submission too.

  3. WARNING *** DO NOT SIGN UP FOR BUILD MY RANK ***

    The less people using this system, the longer my posts will sit on the homepage and soak up that lovely PR which they can send to MY sites NOT yours.

    Build My Rank is faster than Postrunner. No need to add in 5 tags and as Dave says there is no need to search for a blog either. BMR seemed a bit confusing at first, it is not the standard WordPress user interface that we are all used to. But it is easy to learn. I’ve done my first 10 free links and will be signing up in a day or two.

    You get 15 days from the start of your trial period to actually join the system or they say that the price goes up to over $100/month. One more thing, If you are flush, you can pay up front for a year and get something like 2 months for free.

    Should Dave give me commission on his commission for this comment?

    ..okay warning over. But in all honesty, BMR can get you indexed and indexed fast! (Even for static HTML websites!)

    I’m glad that they DON’T accept spun content because this would become another link network that will disappear in no time.

    It doesn’t take that long to write 150 words and that is exactly why I like them better than Post Runner because 300 words (for only one link) is much more time consuming. With BMR, I can make quick “tip” articles in under 3 minutes. 30 minutes for 10 links = sounds great to me!

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Tammy Reply:

    @Yolanda @ Paid in Passive.com,

    Correct me if I’m wrong but are you not getting 2 backlinks from Postrunner with 300 words? You get the same amount of links with the same amount of writing if I am thinking clearly. Just want to make sure as I would rather write 150 words if I am only getting one link from Postrunner.

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @Tammy,

    2 links for 300 words in Postrunner. 1 link for every 150 words in BMR so you can still do 300 word articles for 2 links if you want.

    It is such a fast interface too, I love it. Takes me about 3 mins an article too, which is so easy to write rather than always trying to fill out 300 words, but you can get 2 links in Postrunner for 300 words.

  5. I signed up but not able to add links. I was trying to add url for blogspot nd then how to add keywords?

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @All Is Well, Just use the interface where you write a post to add in your links, don’t worry about the add link box. Just write it like you would in blogger, wordpress etc. And make sure you submit the site for approval so the posts will go live.

    Just play around there and I am sure you will figure it out. All new systems take a few minutes to get familiar with.

  6. What about when your post falls of the homepage?

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Lando @ Docking Bay 94 Reply:

    @Carrie,

    It’s a post that’s indexed in Google and still giving your site some link love.

    To start selling items on Amazon you need a decent SERPs ranking and that means backlinks…Dave taught me that 🙂

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Carrie Reply:

    @Lando @ Docking Bay 94,

    Yeah, I’m just trying to remember some of the complaints with Blog Blueprint which runs similarly. I *thought* people were getting a nice push when their post was on the homepage but then things stopped once the post moved off the homepage. But maybe there was a problem with the post itself indexing or maybe I am just remembering incorrectly.

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @Carrie,

    It is still on a good site and they will have put it in an rss feed and submitted it to bookmarking sites etc. Do that yourself too and you will soon amass some very good backlinks, or just leave them to it and keep writing. Kind of like Postrunner on illegal anabolics.

  7. I did the trial 10 links but how do you find your articles that aren’t indexed? All they have is the Google search for a snippet of your text and if they find it you can see your indexed article. But if it isn’t indexed it comes up with nothing and you have no idea where your article is. Know what I mean?

    Is the paid version different than the trial? Do they show you where every article is whether it is indexed or not?

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @Seth,

    Ummmmmmmmmm, yeah. Kind of a whoopsie on my part there. If they aren’t indexed then you can’t find them to link them up and whatnot.

    They protect the network that way. I just went back in to take a look at the ones that weren’t indexed yesterday and they now are. So basically in a few weeks or so all articles written are indexed and then you can link them up if you want.

    Sorry about the misleading info about manually linking the posts that aren’t indexed, you can’t as you don’t know where they were posted. But it really does look like every single thing you write gets indexed without doing a thing, which actually makes the service better than I thought.

    My addles brain strikes again.

    my only concern with bmr is that the sites are just so basic, short snippets of text over and over again. they need to make them appear more than just 150 word article trenches. photos, profile pages, varied word counts (this is up to the writers) are all needed to make the sites look somewhat legit

    Man, the posts linked to are jumping all over, apart form content that is a year old on it, that just went straight to number 2 in the rankings.

    Come off it! You reckon you can keep that pace up for an hour? I just did 5 in 20 minutes which is a bit faster than my normal pace and I just had to chill out (on your site) to give my head a break.

    I agree that it could get quite expensive, although it’s not like you can’t afford it! For me it might be useful for sending a maintenance load of links to a site $10/day per site isn’t too bad. Great for going away on holidays or concentrating efforts on a new site.

    Nah, you are right Lando, it would be perfect for maintenance mode. Although I think spending a Fiver on Fivver.com for someone to spin an article 200 times and submit it may be better. But a good mix of links is what it is all about.

    Yes, I have been outsourcing!!!!!!!!!

    And to rather good effect I might add. I certainly can’t spin an article and submit it for it not to be worth spending a fiver on it. I have done a few now. 1 bought submission and one of my own with MAR sent me to number 2 for a goodie, ka-ching a ching ching.

    Christmas is coming.

  10. Thanks for this post Dave – everyone’s looking for new sources of links. Personally I’m pretty hesitant on profile links now (the obvious ones where we’re just milking the links and not actually participating and adding any related info – of course we can always disguise it better) because the Hubpages saga just demonstrated – the big G are probably onto the ‘artificial’ link-building… As with the latest algo update, I think this is another move we have to adapt to.

    Because I’ve just started, I think I will find it very tough going – it’s getting harder and harder lol

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @Derek,

    Derek it is getting tougher, no doubt. Forum links still work well, try them on a squidoo lens or a snipsly post if you are unsure, but what happens tomorrow is anyone’s guess.

    Make a decent sized site with links from everywhere you can think of and you will make it though. And don’t forget all the news sites etc. A few are do-follow and you can leave links in comments that can help the readers. I get some OK traffic that way for popular stories.

  11. Hey Dave,

    I’ve started working on a fairly substantial authority site(the plan at the moment is about 100 pages to start, then adding 1 post every day or every other day). Do you think if I were to buy one tool BMR would be a good choice (I already have MAS and MAR by the way)?

    Just to give you a little more background, the majority of my backlinking efforts is going to be coming from scrapebox and I need some high quality article links to mix in there because I’m positive my competitors aren’t doing that. The scrapebox links will primarily be sitewide, so I need some links for the inner pages. I probably won’t be backlinking the articles.

    I know you don’t use many tools, but do you think this one is that powerful?

    @Josh,

    Judging by the fact that all the submissions to Build My Rank seem to get indexed with nothing done on our part then I would say it is about as good as it gets if you want to be hands off after writing the blurb for the links.

    It beats Postrunner and Backlink Solutions in that regard, although it is obviously more hands on than BS.

    It is definitely my favorite at the moment for getting some time on the homepage of sites with good Page Rank and the results are very promising. So, yeah, I would give it a go. If you don’t like it after a month you can always cancel anyway.

  12. So if I could only pick (afford) one or the other, Backlink Solutions or Build My Rank, which should it be? BMR doesn’t have pricing on their site, but I gather from these comments it’s in the $100 range? Monthly?

    -1 Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @Sue,

    BS is just shy of $100 a month and I think I am now more in favor of BMR if I had to have just one or the other. I think the fact that so many fewer people seem to be using it means that the articles submitted are worth a lot more.

    BUT you can spin 1 article on BS for 100 or 200 links if it is over 300 and on BMR it is all manual original content only. But the results from just a handful of BMR articles does seem to be on a par with BS from what I can tell.

    Best advice? Try each 1 for a month at a time and see what you prefer. None of these things have to be continually subscribed too if you don’t get good results. But I am going for BMR for now. Time will tell how it continues to perform.

    Hope that helps (a bit) Sue.

    The sites that they post on seem a little spammy looking though, almost to BS level (minus the spun content). In this regard I think the advantage goes to postrunner but the 150 minimum is SWEET. Not that 300 is terribly difficult but hey, I hate writing!

I would wipe you out then you would wipe me out etc.

    At the worst links from certain sites may get de-valued to not being worth much but that is it.

    @JohnM, Take a look at Lis’s Postrunner case study http://lissowerbutts.com/keyword-academy-case-study-does-postrunner-work/

    The length doesn’t make any difference, it is the way the site is run as far as I am concerned.

    The BMR rank guys seem very responsible. If a site begins to not get posts indexed they take it out of the system for new content and work on backlinking it until it gets its MOJO back.

    From what I have seen over 2 years in this game from this “noobish” I have plenty of content on my sites of about 200 or so words that has stuck just fine.

    Um, and it is like well easy to write and shit innit?

  17. Dave have finally invested in small backlinking package with Backlink Philipians. Told em you sent me : ). Dave I will say that I did purchase the other manual backlinking package for the $8 per month.. was that what’s his name? philip? I dont remember his name but similiar to Angie’s backlinks.

    I noticed that I was getting emails saying my profile was deleted or that the sites had actually taken down their sign up links, etc.

    I noticed you no longer have this package part of your resources page. Is this why?

  18. Dave I take that back. I do see the $8 backlink package. I guess I over looked it. but I did get several account disabled. And I did not try to submit 5 and six links just one or two on some of them. Oh well…..

    Should I tell folks not to use Paul’s package now? Was it worth it or did too many links get taken down? I haven’t used it in a while now.

    @Dave, Joined once so I could become an affiliate (not member anymore). Yeah she does pretty well for herself. Drip feeds content on a monthly basis always teasing you about what you’ll learn the next month. Clever girl. Pretty basic stuff though in the first few months – how to set up wordpress, how to schedule posts, how to add affiliate links. Didn’t stay long enough to get to the more ‘advanced’ stuff (no idea what she teaches there). You could do that Dave. Dave’s Monthly Membership. I’d love to learn how to install wordpress LOL.

    @Tracey,

    $20 and I shall reveal all. I await your payment. I am sure that a lot of people knew to all this like having clear instructions though, I guess that is why the KA is so popular. It’s funny but looking back simple things like learning how to install wordpress etc does take a while to figure out. Guess we just take it for granted now.

  21. I was a member sometime ago. Amy Bass is the site owner. I found it a great place to start to get all the basics. I’ve since moved on. Its not for everyone espcially if you are more advanced. Unless u just want to stay to participate in the forums.

  22. Dave,

    What is the posting schedule you select for your projects in BMR.

    Thanks

    @Raj,

    I do the max 7-10 a day for a site, although i have a number pending as i have gone over that, but they will catch up on the weekend. When I am tiling a floor yet again (sigh). They won’t all index the same day so I would set it to max.

  23. Hi,

    Just an update. I tried BMR today and submitted the articles for all 10 links today.
    And within 5 hours one of my articles has gone live and the absolute great thing is that it has been indexed in G.

    Wow, great going.

    Also, Excellent site, i am a very regular visitor. Keep it up. Have been reading forums and sites like yours for the past one year but have started working now.

    Have decided on earning from Amazon before going out and trying out on new things.

    Told you it was good didn’t I? It has been working wonders for me so far.

    Don’t forget to stop by and leave a comment more regularly, I feel all fuzzy when people say nice things 😉

  24. Hi,

    To update further on the progress with the BMR, all 5 0f mine posts have been published and 4 out of 5 have been indexed in less than 24 hours.

    All the sites have a page rank from 1 to 4. No seemingly obvious footprint.

    One important which i noticed was that the front page of the site which has some PR, carries only the summary from your post. So one gets the benefit of the PR of home page, if the back links are at the start of your post. Since my links were all at the bottom of my articles, i do not benefit from the Home page PR but thats what the ten free links are for – testing.

    Also, the posts should remain on the front page for 5 – 6 days as was obvious from the publishing date of the various posts. Since this seems to be a new network, this is an advantage and therefore, i feel one should get into it early to take advantage of the network.

    @starter,

    Good points. I try to get my link in near to the start. Sometime there are long snippets but sometimes just a line or two.

    Definitely well worth using while it is not yet overrun, but I don’t think it will be as all submissions are manual and not spun.

  25. I have been using BMR for a while now too, and have started to put together a case study on a brand new site – you can read the strategy here and follow the case study through the tag page here.

    Dave – have you seen the BMR posts show up in webmaster tools? Having a bit of a hard time tracking down what is actually indexed…

    @Billy,

    They show you in the interface when stuff gets indexed so you can then click a button and see the post, are you having probs with that?

    @Dave, yeah, when I click the binoculars it doesn’t actually find my post. Will test it out a bit more, could just be a matter of time.

    BTW, how many submissions did you do against a domain to get to #1 with BMR? Obviously it’s not a like for like comparison, but just interested!

    @Billy,

    You know me, I don’t count. I just keep on keeping on until I get where I want to be. Plus I always rank posts never sites, they take care of themselves if they have a main keyword.

  26. Dave,

    In this site do you have to write relevant articles? Can article be about Topic A with a link to widget B at the end of the article? Does this get bounced by the editors? For example, I love to write about race cars can talk about it all day. Can I write posts on race cars and toss a link at the bottom about Acne Cream? Seen some networks allow this.

    Thanks for the great reading…

    @JP,

    To be honest I am not sure, I keep my content relevant. Just take the free trial and see or shot them an email.

    But I will say that a few of my articles are giving me nice through traffic which would be lost of it was not for relevant links.

  27. Hi Dave,

    I signed up to BMR for 1 month. For the past few days, most of my posts are being rejected for reasons that posts make little sense and so far out of 80 submissions, they have accepted lest than 20. That does not speak well for their service. And i have seen their sites, ( not too difficult to find ) . The content on their sites is similar to what i have submitted.
    Since you seem to be a big fan of BMR, have you faced any such thing.
    I have already decided not to continue with them, ( no point in getting less than 20 back links for 59 dollars a month ).

    Guess they want users to use their 2.5 dollars a post writing service.

    @starter,

    To be honest that sounds weird. I haven’t had a single article not get published. All written by me and the Wife, not using their service.

    I would email them as there may just be something weird going on. Do you spell check?

    Email John and see what the problem is. I gotta say I can’t fault them yet.

  28. I e mailed them and this was the reply

    ” Well your posts are relevant they just exhibit bad grammar. Now we don’t expect super high quality content.

    The common theme with your posts is bad pluralization ”

    This is after 15 successful submissions, suddenly the posts started getting rejected.

    Now, i have submitted posts after checking them for pluralization specifically and spell checks ( i do spell checks in word as well as the inbuilt spell checker in BMR ) and everything is OK, still the posts keep getting rejected.

    @starter,

    I don’t know who you are, but if you had 15 successful submissions and then started having rejections something changed on your end. Maybe you hired a new writer, etc, I don’t know but it just doesn’t go hot and cold like that. We’re trying to maintain a quality network here, and would rather have fewer users all submitting good quality content, then be overrun with just any old stuff.

    And honestly we don’t care if you use your outsourcing service or not. Not worth the trouble at the end of the day to be honest with you.

    John

  29. Thanks for the reply here John.

    Yes, you are running an excellent network/service. The control panel is excellent and is a breeze to work with. Somehow, i faced this problem and thought of posting it here.
    Now, after my reply here, most of my posts have been approved. Though as far as the mistakes are concerned, i was thinking of mailing you the link to posts on your network with big grammar errors but i do not think, there is need for that now.

  30. Yeah, and I’m not going to say we’re perfect, but generally speaking our editors do a pretty good job keeping bad stuff out. But with the volumes we handle every day, some crap is bound to get thru.

  31. well this just stinks! I just went to the site and they closed down membership!
    Just as I was starting to get on the first page of google for certain keywords – I found Build my rank – and what happens? It wont let me register! Darn!

  33. hey dave! I’ll sign up probably next week, just a question though, I have a one year old domain that I have recently renovated (no backlinks yet), i changed all it’s content, i uploaded a new theme and wrote new articles… i was wondering how many links i should be sending per day from BMR to my “newly renovated” site? thanks man i’ll appreciate your insight!

    Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @james,

    I would say go slow, one or two a day tops for a month or so. Then double that. But see how it reacts in the search engines. You may simply get lucky and have a site that could take 10 a day from early on but if you want to try not to do the Google dance too much play it easy for at least 3 months if not more.

  34. thanks for your advice dave, So 1 or 2 per day is fine then. Jeez I can’t wait to nuke it with links. Can I get links from other sources other than BMR too? I guess what I’m asking is can I get 2 links from BMR and 1 from a web 2.0 site everyday on my 1st month? I appreciate you sharing your talent man. Thanks!!!

    Ooops by the way, the number 1 player on my keyword has 700 plus links (based on market samurai) Do you think it’s possible to beat them within a year?

    Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @james,

    In most cases slow and steady for a good while wins the race, that was just a conservative guideline. But you can of course send a few more. Even a shed load more if you want. You may find that the site jumps around more or even totally tanks for a month or two but it should come good in the end.

    If the winner has 700 links then it is totally yours in a year Dude, man, if you used a Squidoo or Hub you would be there in a month or two, as long as that is not what is ranking.

    @james,

    I would add that make sure you don’t just send links to the homepage to rank for one keyword. Go for all the related terms too. Add in plenty of links that are just the full URL of inner pages, crap “look at this” links and you will be good. But for one main keyword you could beat a site with 700 links very quickly unless they are all super quality links from high PR authority sites. If they are the usual suspect links then that is easy pickings my man.

    “hey dave thanks for taking the time to reply and for your advice of course… what do you mean when you say “Add in plenty of links that are just the full URL of inner pages” ? I’m a bit confused 🙁

    this is what I’m planning to do for the first three months… 🙂

    1st month – 2 BMR posts a day + 1 article directory
    2nd month – 3 BMR posts a day 2 article directory
    3rd month – 4 BMR posts a day + 2 article directory + 1 web 2.0 site

    4rth month – 5 BMR posts + 2 article directory + 1 web 2.0 site
    5th month – 6 BMR posts + 2 article directory + 2 web 2.0 site + 2 profile link a day
    6th month 7 BMR posts + 2 article directory + 3 web 2.0 site + 3 profile link a day

    what do you think? will this take me anywhere? Sorry for asking too many questions… If I can get this keyword to rank #1, it’ll literally change my life! Super thanks!

    Vote -1 Vote +1Dave Reply:

    @james,

    I mean that if I want to rank number 1 instead of number 2 for time is leaking that as well as doing keyword specific backlinks I would throw in plenty of links like this. http://www.makingmoneyontheinternetfree.info/time-is-leaking-rank-number-1-now-by-building-backlinks-in-the-future

    That is how a lot of people would naturally link to a page they find online. Mix it up.

    It sounds like a good plan. All I would say is don’t just rely on BMR. Substitute some BMR links for links from other places, Postrunner or join sites like http://myblogguest.com or look there to see who wants guest posts, you can find some very good sites to write articles for.

    But that is a great timeline for building up a site. But also try to rank the keyword on other properties too, you can go to town on them from day one. Plus it is a back up too. Just try to make the links for the first few months very varied, not all the same keywords. Once sites have authority then they can take a lot more perfect keyword backlinks with no penalties, but newer sites can get in to trouble. It is why Web 2.0 stuff is good, they can take masses of perfect links and just climb the rankings.

  35. If I have $60 a month to spend, should it be postrunner or BMR?

    Thanks for your advice, I will need to dig in now

  36. Just thought I’d let you know – you’re just making another commission.! I made a purchase last night, after reading your excellent review.

    I stumbled on your website, then your review page, after reading a guest post on Paula & Wanda’s blog – that was penned by Jamesthejust, aka “the average genius” – that had a link to your website. Kind of a long way to find you out of nowhere, but I guess this is why it’s called the” Inter-net”

    Great product btw. I’ve been a user of a similar system, but it was getting pretty pricey. 20 posts are up already. Thanks to my voice recognition software, it’s real easy to rattle these out, but you have to proof them well – I’ve had a couple of “rejects’ already.

    Thanks for that, much appreciated. It really is an amazing system and the results have been incredible. we now have literally thousands of posts live on BMR.

    That was a great article by James and he is a great guy. Thanks for dropping by Bruce and feel free to comment any time.

  37. Hi Dave

    This looks like a great system but I’m a bit nervous in the post Panda world.

    Have you seen any impact on the BMR links as a result of the Panda/Farmer update?

    Would appreciate your thoughts.

    Thanks

    @Martin,

    They still work fine for me.

    The thing is to mix them up. When you use BMR make sure to change the category now and then, mix up the word length and where the link is in the post etc to make it more natural. Just don’t go mad on a new site as a lot of high PR links to quickly can get you sandboxed.

    It is the best system I have found for quick and painless link building though.

  38. Hi Dave,

    I’ve heard a lot of good stuff about BMR, so fingers crossed I can improve my income substantially
