Okay, so nobody ever said I was good about putting up blog posts on a regular basis, but this is ridiculous. I haven’t posted anything here since February. Sorry ’bout that.
I’ve had a few people email me and how Linksvana is working for me? I have a solid six months worth of data I can share with you about how its worked for me, so I figured I’d share the results with you and let you make up your own mind if its worth it.
You can read my old post about it if you need to catch up about what the heck Linksvana does, but if you don’t know anything about it, it’s a one way link building system.
Now a tool is only useful if you use it. So I’m only posting the traffic data for sites that I added 50 or more links to their network. For the most part we kept doing what we were doing on each site, but this wasn’t a perfect scientific study.
I found that if I only added a few links to a site, then there was no appreciable increase in traffic.
Site 1 – 256 links added
January – 2133 visitors
July – 7319 visitors
Site 2 – 113 links added
January – 1502 visitors
July – 1602 visitors
(never saw much of a jump in traffic, but revenue is up about $120/month so I’ll take it)
Site 3 – 68 links added
January – 2063 visitors
July – 3067 visitors
Site 4 – 74 links added
January – 579 visitors
July – 999 visitors
Site 5 – 171 links added
January – 27597 visitors
July – 73947 visitors
Site 6 – 59 links added
January – 0 visitors (launched in May)
July – 445 visitors
With this site, I only used the Linksvana system to get links, nothing else. I did manage to get some top ten rankings in google despite the on page SEO sucking for this site, so as best I can tell, Google is definitely giving some weight to the links from their system.
One last thing I’ll add here is that while you can’t tell from the data, I got much better results from sites where I added links consistently over time instead of just doing one link building push. I’m sure you’re sick of hearing me say that you need to build links over time, so I’ll hop off my soapbox now.
If you want to check it out, it’s Linksvana.com – I’ve found it to be a worthwhile investment for me although it does take some time to actually use it (although it can all be outsourced pretty easily).
If you have any questions or would like to share your own results, post them in the comments below – I’d be interested to hear from you.
