Link Emperor Blog

Holy Mackerel, That's A TON of Updates!

February 11, 2012

Ladies and Gentlemen,

What a month it's been so far!  And it's only the 11th.

Hopefully you all have your valentines locked in, or at least have some plans so as not to be alone on what many think of as the most depressing holiday of the year!

The good news: If you don't have one already, Link Emperor will gladly be your valentine.

The BETTER news: Well, there's a whole ton of it.  Let's break it down.

1) We'll Pay You to Write Link Building Reviews!

After launching the reviews forum last month, only a handful of reviews were added in there.  Unfortunate.  But since we think it would be a very valuable resource for our customers, we've decided to increase the stakes!  

For every 5 link building reviews you write, send us an email at [email protected] and we'll give you 10,000 free credits to your account.

Add them here: Link Building Reviews

***Boring, legal-style note: These have to be legitimate reviews, you have to have actually ordered the service in the past, and we withhold the right to not grant the credits if we feel like they're insubstantial or weren't posted in the best interests of everyone involved.  They don't have to be more than a few sentences, but please try to keep the reviews section a high-quality forum!  Finally, it's limited to 20,000 free credits per customer for this particular offer.***

2) Price Per Link EXPOSED: The Numbers Don't Lie!

This is a truly exciting time.  We've been alluding to this for a while now, but we've finally done it.  

We've released the private numbers from our Link Checker that show which vendors offer you a better value based on how many *successful* links have been built in every blast of theirs, on average, over a trailing 30-day period.

Check them out now on our page for the Link Marketplace.

These are the same numbers that we use to adjust the default allocations and send more link building orders to the vendors who are a better value for you, the customer.

Why have we done this?  Well for one thing, I'm not sure if you've noticed, but our vendors' prices have been getting PRETTY DARN CHEAP lately!  And we want to show the world!  

We ALSO want to break through this stupid model that everybody in the link building industry seems to use, which is charging by the number of link "attempts" rather than the number of verified, successful links.

People obviously do this because it's tough to verify links. You have to have software like we do. Also, many competing services are able to get away with murder by building a bunch of failed links and charging for them anyway.

Well, not us.  All of our vendors have to provide a *guaranteed* number of successful links that they pledge to provide.  If they don't hit that mark, we will send their link blast right back to them and ask them to do it again.  

That's the quality you get with Link Emperor that you just can't find anywhere else.  Because you're Link Emperor's valentine, and it appreciates the chocolates you provided it!

3) Phone Support!

We now have a phone number on the website, which is a direct line to our customer support agent Brett.  If you need either sales or customer support help, feel free to call: (720)GOOD-SEO during the hours of 12-5pm EST Monday-Thursday.

We plan on expanding our phone support to multiple agents soon, but for now we do ask that you employ support tickets whenever possible to make things easier on him!  It's also usually easier to answer technical questions over email so that all the details can be fully laid out.

We do expect the phone number to increase conversions, so for those of you who are active affiliates, don't be afraid to encourage potential customers to give us a call!

4) Press Releases!

We now support press releases, although for the time being they're only available through manual ordering since it will take a good amount more effort to automate them.  

Check them out by going to the Link Building tab and clicking on "Order One-Time Link Blast" and ordering a press release from Social Media Empire.  They're really spiffy, and your google rankings will appreciate it.

The cash price is $41.67. They write a professional press release for you and everything.

5) The Link Purchasing API is just about ready to go!

If you're looking to buy massive amounts of link building, or potentially might want to integrate link ordering into a product you're coming out with etc., shoot us an email at [email protected]!  We now have the capability to provide link building directly through an API.

For those who are technically-minded, here are the nitty gritty details:

6) Anchor Text Randomization!

We now support the ability to build a certain percentage of your links with random anchor texts and also by appending prefixes and suffixes to your keywords.  For more details, check out the post here: Anchor Text Randomization

And if you'd like to use it, just click on "Anchor Text Randomization Settings" under the Link Building tab.

7) Let's go to Yanik Silver's Underground Online Seminar 8!

I've been told that Yanik's Underground is potentially the best online marketing seminar of the year, and that all the big time internet marketers go.  So I'm going this year, and you should come too!  It's March 1-3 in Washington, DC.

It's not a pitch-fest, and I know for a fact it will be amazing content because some real SEO geniuses will be speaking. A few speakers are people who I've had the pleasure of meeting and been extremely impressed with such as Brian Horn, Keith Baxter and Laura Betterly.  

So if you're going to be there, send an email to [email protected] because I'd be happy to meet you!

Make sure you register before Feb 15th (this week) before the prices go up and you lose out on the early bird bonuses: Yanik Underground 8

Hope to see you there,
