Linkvana Case Study – My Results Over 6 Months

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.

My Results:
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 – 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.


  1. Tessa Luu says:

    I purchased the Linksvana system based on your recommendation and I was so disappointed by it. I get so many emails pitching this program and that program and I hardly ever bite, but I did this once and I have to tell you, I probably never do it again.

    Here’s the thing, all the postings that supposed to be on “quality sites” are not. I emailed tech support to find out where all my postings are supposed to be (because I never see any Google Alerts for them). I was then giving a couple of paths to check my links and then I found out all these “good” quality sites are thin site with really no contents, the links are buried deep in non-ranking pages. Basically they are kinda worthless.

    So, I’m not sure if you have an affiliate deal going with Linksvana, I’m sure there must be one otherwise I can’t imagine why you would be pitching it, but although it is cheap, I find it fairly worthless.

  2. Gary says:

    I’m sorry to hear you’re disappointed with it.

    Here’s the reason why I recommended it: RESULTS!

    If you use it, it flat out works. The trick, though (and I’m pretty sure I mentioned it in the post) is you can’t just send a link or two from the system and expect spectacular results.

    As far as the links being worthless, I did an experiment to find out if you’re right. If the links are worthless then using the Linkvana system to see if I could get a site to rank for a term using ONLY anchor text from the Linkvana blog system. The phrase didn’t even appear on the site I was linking to.

    Guess what? I got a #5 ranking on Google for the term. It wasn’t a competitive phrase, but it does prove that Google not only sees these links but they also are passing value to the sites they link to.

  3. Rob says:

    I have joined Linkvana and I have been trialing it for the last ten days. I have about 20 links now and my website has gone from number 6 to number 35. is this normal as at the minute Linkvana is not looking brilliant.This might be co-incidence which I am hoping .
    Any thoughts….

  4. Maverick says:

    Interesting …. results seems mixed on Linkvana … I heard another guru pushing it hard, particularly having them write the posts … so maybe it works better if you’ve got more cash than time … still, it is good to get data on it from different sources, and not just people pushing it for a commission.

  5. Marvin says:

    I’m a new Linksvana member… So far I really like how nicely the system is set up and how easy it is to use. I’m trying to be patient about results.

    I have been able to show that I can get a site indexed in Google using just Linksvana links – but that’s about it so far.

    I’m working on my patience!

  6. How will I be able to get hold on the auto traffic program and use it in building my website?

  7. I always have mixed feelings about products like this. They sound great, but sometimes I find rankings drop if I use some of these services. What happens if that network gets delisted?

  8. Gary Ruplinger says:

    I can’t speak to other services, but I know that they will remove any site that gets delisted so that you’re not getting links from a website that Google won’t rank. The network itself isn’t interlinked so it’s highly unlikely the whole thing would ever get delisted… even if it did, it wouldn’t hurt your rankings, it just wouldn’t be helping them anymore.

    Does that make sense?

  9. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more
    in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  10. Garry says:

    I am extremely impressed with your writing abilities and also
    with the format in your blog. Is that this a paid theme
    or did you modify it yourself? Anyway stay up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice weblog like
    this one today..

  13. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to
    be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed
    while people consider worries that they just do not know
