Value of links from identical blogs

Discussion in 'Link Development' started by tbarr60, Oct 29, 2007.

    I was looking into blog links and came across a service that provides a blog posting with links on hundreds of blogs but it turned out the hundreds of blogs is the same blog on hundreds of different domain names and IPs. This was a recommended service but it sure looks to be of little value. To me it looks like a modern day link farm with a little extra content around the links.

    Have these been working for a while? What do you think the near future and long term holds for these types of blog networks?

    I think it can still helps even a little as long as the blog is related with your niche.

    I'd stay well away from it.

    Surely these blogs will at some point suffer from duplicate content penalties?

    These are the easiest types of links for any search engine to detect and I believe they are mostly discounted.

    Like everything else in life, you typically get what you pay for and 200 links for $12 will get you just that.

    It sounds like you are talking about the one I looked into. I've got one guy that swears by them he says it works but I wonder for how long. If I add dozens of directory listings, hundreds of blog posts (or one post in 200 places), have real blog posts and comments and have a bunch of other natural links would the hundreds of blog posts help, hurt, or be ignored? I am not sure if anyone can say for sure.

    if you mean blog network with the same content, it will not worth anythink.

    it does not look like a good idea for me

    The only real way to build links is to just get good blogs to link to your content. Getting links from blogs that have no authority with Google isn't going to help.

    This is not a surprising response from a competitor who has a vested financial interest.

    You have probably found that most of these networks have been hit with the latest pr update.

    I believe that you will get some short term bang as long as the blogs stay under the radar.

    Most of those blogs just got crushed with the latest Google update. Duplicate content is duplicate content and Google hates it. Article spinning is slightly better but they just turn out to be jibberish -- and Google will figure that out too.
