I spoke to Dave Kelley from LinkVana recently and the conversation was pretty enlightening to me.
I’ve also watched Jonathan Leger come out with some pretty good SEO products in the last year or so, too.
Dave runs LinkVana and has 8+ years experience as an SEO (AKA search engine optimization guy)
Jonathan Leger is also a well known SEO guy, too, but there are those who look down their nose at him despite the success of his many products, like 3 waylinks.net and the $7 script (which he sold off to another marketer)
What does LinkVana do?
LinkVana builds links to as many sites as you want at whatever pace you want ( up to 1 link/day)
LinkVana itself is a network of blogs that place posts you create ( or outsource for $2.00) on the network of blogs they have.
These blogs have a lot of link juice since they have decent PageRank and more incoming links than outgoing links.
Jonathan Leger’s 1waylinks.net program is similar in that it is also a network of blogs, but it allows for duplicate content to be placed on the network of blog sites acting as backlink posters to whatever links you desire.
With 1waylinks.net, you can get an incredible amount of links (hundreds) per month up to 3 sites or more, all depending on how you want to go about your linkbuilding campaign.
The difference between the 2 services and some information about linkbuilding you won’t read in too many places:
Not all links are created equal. A link from 100 sites that do not have much linkjuice isn’t worth the same, SEO-wise and rankings-wise as a link from one site, properly placed, as unique content, from a site with plenty of link juice and PageRank.
That’s the difference between Linkvana and 1waylinks.net.
You get a lot of links from dupe content from 1waylinks.net which I
am/WAS a member of, and you also get a whole lot of links at once in a very short period of time, too.
That’s not necessarily a good thing because Google knows how old your site is…
Google knows how many links you’ve accrued over the lifespan of your site
Google can easily figure out the average number of links your site gets per month so when it sees your 2 year old site with 5 links go from 5 links to 175 links by the next month, it discounts and does not credit you for many of those links right away.
Over time you may get credit for some of those mass-gained links but usually you don’t get credit for all of them and the links themseleves will be sandboxed/not credited while some others will stick.
You want links that stick.
You want links that apply towards your site’s and site url SERPs.
