I don’t know why but no one seems to be talking about this…
About a month ago, I signed up for several pay per post websites. My plan was to do a comparison of the major players for a series of review articles. However, almost immediately, I noticed something pretty interesting …I’ll tell you about that in a few minutes, first let me explain how these sites work…
These sites are pretty straight-forward. An advertiser (website owner) enters a post request. In this request, they specify the number of posts they want to buy, the minimum number of words they want in each post, some specifics on where they want their backlinks to go (including the link text) and the tone and subject matter of the post. They then set a price they’re willing to pay for each post.
Once the post request has been approved (and this can take a couple of days), it goes out into the system where it can be seen by the bloggers. The bloggers review the request if they decide to accept it; they make a unique post to their blog following the instructions of the advertiser. Next, they notify the pay per post website.
The pay per post website then monitors each post to verify that it meets the advertiser’s requirements.
Now here’s the interesting part, while doing my research I noticed something… There seemed to be a lot more bloggers then there were posting opportunities…
In fact, as of this writing, one of the major players in the industry has exactly 68 open posting opportunities. Another of the big sites doesn’t even seem to have enough to keep their existing bloggers …blogging.
…Can you say Supply and Demand.
Well, I quickly realized that the real opportunity here was in buying the posts —Not writing them! I like to experiment, so I quickly signed up as an advertiser for one of these sites, I threw together a request for ten posts about “[tag-tec]affiliate marketing[/tag-tec]” at $5 per post. A few days later, I received an email telling me that my request was approved, by the following day all ten requests had been filled – I know this because I started seeing new backlinks in the “Incoming Links” section of my control panel when I logged in that morning. A quick trip to the pay per post site, confirmed this.
Here’s a couple of permanent links that I received for $5 each:
Now just to drive the point home, for $50 (plus $16.25 paid to the post broker), I received backlinks from ten different blogs spread out all over the web. Each of these posts is unique and my backlinks are NOT buried deep within some reciprocal link directory – they are PR passing backlinks each nestled within a brand new blog post..
…And keep this in mind, I rushed through my post request. I could have put additional restrictions in to ensure that my posts were from blogs within certain categories or I could have denied posts from sites like [tag-tec]blogspot[/tag-tec] or [tag-tec]myspace[/tag-tec], I could even have even specified the PR of the sites I wanted posts from. The point is I got some good results without really even trying…
Give this a shot, I bet you can get some sweet [tag-tec]backlinks[/tag-tec] without the hassle of doing regular [tag-tec reciprocal+links]reciprocal linking[/tag-tec] and for a fraction of the cost of buying old fashioned text links.
Good luck and let me know how you make out.
