In episode 133 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked for an objective answer on the links service differences between Serp Space and Backlinks Indexer.
The exact question was:
I am taking all of my urls from my client websites, social media and web 2.0 sites and listing them on a spreadsheet and then I'm having my VA create a google shortener for each url and then I run both sets through the Backlinks Indexer which I buy monthly but I only get a total of 1,400 links. SerpSpace shows for almost the same amount of money, it does 5,000 links. What is the difference in service…Objective answer please!!
In the video, Bradley differentiates the link building services provided in Backlinks Indexer and Serp Space. He mentioned that he cancelled his subscription to the indexing services he had with Backlinks Indexer. The reason is because he had better experience with Serp Space's indexing rate, which is about 60% better. Bradley also suggested the participant not to go overboard with indexing too many links at the same time as it can become an overkill move to do. He also discussed that using URL shorteners to those links is also a redudant thing to do. Most link building indexing services will also filter out redudant URLs from shorteners. Bradley then mentioned Backlink Commando, which is a good plugin for properties in the syndication networks that use RSS feed. He recalled that the plugin used to be a helpful strategy to auto-submit web 2.0 posts to backlink indexers.
Submission of Video Powerhouse links to Backlinks Indexer was asked during episode 60 of Hump Day Hangout. The participant would like to know if this strategy is good for optimizing videos for search engines.
The exact question was:
Should I be submitting the urls from Video Powerhouse to BacklinkIndexer? Or other suggestions? Getting some good results from just the submissions alone.
Have you been building links to your websites and/or videos but not seeing the results you were expecting? Or maybe you have been checking your sites with SEO analysis tools and don't see many of the links that you have been building…
Backlinks can sometimes take weeks to get indexed. This is especially true for web 2.0 links.
And if you have been using IFTTT networks as part of your link building strategy (and you are, aren't you?), then a large portion of your links are coming from web 2.0 sites.
It is difficult to get these links indexed naturally, or it take weeks to happen. Who has time for that?
We were using a combination of a powerful WordPress plugin and a really good indexing service to force our links to be indexed and it worked like gangbusters. Oh, and did I mention that it was completely automated?
Sadly, Baclink Commando is no longer available 🙁
I know, sad horn…
Anyways, when one method doesn't work it's time to find another one – or make your own, right?
So, if you want to get backlinks indexed you need a solid solution that can last for a long time and work as good as before – well, hopefully it does!
This way, we didn't have to have seperate backlink indexing software and could continue to use Serp Space.
As always, things are constantly in development at Serp Space and we'll be pushing to automate more and make the indexing service even better – how about things like automatically grabbing your Syndication Network post URLs and adding them to your indexing account?
So, while you can't use Backlink Commando anymore, now's a great time to start using the Serp Space Indexer.
