This looks pretty good. I'm always on the hunt for decent links.
I'm curious about how you set up the sites. I've been doing a bit of work with the NoHatSEO guys with their blog network and got to see how they structure theirs so I'm keen to know if you go down the same path.
Are all the sites just generic 'news' sites or are they specifically themed to match the original theme of the site before they were dropped?
Do they pass the eye test as real websites or is it easy to tell they're blog network sites?
Is the content written by native English speakers?
Keen to know more.
Also, Agent Blackhat, have you used these guys before? Have you seen good results in high competition niches? It's one thing to see pretty charts but it's something completely different to get personal testimonials from people you trust.
Probably spent about $2000 with this guy over the past year and a half.
Basically the creative and the old juggernaut network were the most powerful links i've ever bought. However, as Google is becoming more aggressive I do find my sites getting penalized after the 6 month mark sometimes. Just like with any links right now you have to be careful.
In terms of results, i'd be able to create a new site on a fresh domain and rank it really well with 20-40 blog posts form this guy, some social links and some paid directories, I could then leave the site for months and it would be top 10 for keywords I wasn't able to rank for before. This may partly be due to the changes in Google though, where you now see sites ranking with few links commonplace.
So is it very powerful? Yes. Is it 100% safe? No(but what is?).
For SEO clients i would rank blackhat sites using this network, but i'd also drip a few blog posts to the main site. The main site survived any problems and the blackhat sites would drop off after 6 months sometimes but i could have them ranking again within a month by cloning the site to a fresh domain and buying more blog posts.
Some are still ranking to this day.
