It’s well known that link-building is one of the most important factors in SEO. It’s also well known that it’s not as simple as just building a link. Relevancy, content, link type and quantity are just some of the things that differentiate between an effective link and one that may actually do damage. At SMX East this past September I met a company called Sorezki and got a glimpse of their link-building platform, Linkr™. From the preview I saw then, I could tell that Linkr™ was a bit different than other link building services- and I recently had a chance to test the platform out and realize my hunch was correct.
Here are some highlights and top features of Linkr™:
Easy and Intuitive User Interface
Even before I got a short demo of the system, strolling around the platform was a breeze. Creating a linking campaign was simple (selected my domain, targeted country and search engine) as was adding my anchors and landing pages (easy upload of large files or hand entry).
Diverse Link Service Selection
Next, I ordered my links. Linkr™ offers 5 link types: Blog Comments, Bookmarks, Directory Listings, Forums and Q&A. A unique feature is that in the Blog Comments service you select the PageRank of the page the link will be placed on, and not just the PR of the domain.
After selecting which anchors and landing pages I wanted for each link type and the quantities, I placed the order and waited to see the results.
Only Published Links
My order (30 links) was complete within 25 days (the company commits to completing the order 30 days after you place it). I got an e-mail announcement that my order was completed, and I logged into the system to check the results. There’s a very straightforward full link report where I viewed a list of each link service I ordered, the links’ URLs (not hyperlinked), the comments made for each link and the PageRank of the placement. While I was checking the links I noticed that they were all published which, I later found out is Linkr™’s policy.
There’s a Link Warranty
Something that makes Linkr™ stand out is that all links come with a 30 day warranty. Every link in the report has a DISPUTE button next to it which I could click and then select my reason for disputing the link. The link would then be rebuilt at no further expense.
A nice treat was the 2 bonus links I received. When I asked Dana (a customer service rep who was my contact) what they were she explained that to ensure links are published by site moderators in time to meet order due dates, they often create extra links. If those get published they are given as bonus links, free of charge- it’s not often you get something for nothing.
High Link Quality
I was also informed by Dana that all links are built by trained link builders who are taught how to find relevant link placement, how to write great comments and who are fluent in the language they link in. This training was evident in the links I received- the comments were rich and relevant to the anchor and landing page of the link. I could actually understand what was written and the comments were certainly not generic sounding.
As soon as a link is built it starts getting tracked for Google Rankings and the information appears in a simple graph which makes it easy to see the correlation between link quantity and type and Google Rankings.
Linkr™ just moved into Alpha meaning it’s a great time to get started with the platform. To do so go to linkr.sorezki.com and request an invite.
