Fellow Freedom Fighters of the Link Building Revolution,
Hey! It's been a few weeks since we sent out a serious update about what's been going on in the Link Emperor universe. That's not because we haven't been working hard on things, and I've got a bunch of good news to report.
You may have noticed these things appearing in your account over the past few days, and we do that before announcing them just to let people try to break them and make sure we don't have any serious bugs. But things have been going quite smoothly, so now it's time to roll out the red carpet!
1) Campaign Categories
This is an important feature that we've recently implemented... the ability to categorize your campaigns by niche. This will allow us to do a lot of cool things, like provide our vendors with categories for doing various site submissions. Up to this point we haven't been able to integrate very well with certain types of vendors since we didn't have this information, but now that we do, things should be smooth sailing.
So if you haven't already, go into your account and update that from the Campaigns tab.
2) The Articles Tab
IT'S HEREEEEEEEE! We've finally launched the epic Articles Tab.
It's a beautiful thing. We've created a database of hundreds of thousands of PLR articles and also integrated with ArticleBuilder.net to allow you to generate so many different types of articles at the click of a button.
You can also upload your own articles and save those as well, if you have of original content that you'd like us to be distributing. It's entirely up to you, but the point was to give you a lot more control over what content we're promoting across the internet.
In the next few days, once you've all had a chance to upload your articles and get them set up for your different campaigns, we'll be integrating these directly with our link building vendors and having them use our articles rather than generating their own.
If you're inclined to be a bit more lazy and don't feel like micro-managing articles (this is a lazy man's piece of software, after all) we will certainly still be providing high quality articles on your behalf. It's merely an option to allow you to take greater control over what's being distributed, if you so choose. So even if you just go in and update your campaign categories, that will be more than enough for us to have you up and running with high-quality article submissions.
Go into your account and check it out, it's really really awesome.
3) New Vendors
Not sure if you've noticed, but we have been adding a lot of new vendors recently! As a positive side effect, this has promoted competition and brought in a number of cheaper link building options than we had even just a few weeks ago.
Cheaper links are a beautiful thing..
4) Overall Link Building Quality
Over the past few weeks as our number of vendors has grown and the marketplace has started to come into a new phase of maturity, we've had to get serious about implementing some real quality controls on ensuring that each one of our vendors is performing at a high level and delivering the goods that we expect.
As a result, we've begun automatically refunding certain link reports that seemed to be a failure, and in the next few weeks we'll be switching things up a bit more. We're moving from an "Attempted Links" to a "Successful Links" model. So rather than vendors advertising 2000 links but having an unknown failure rate that leaves you wondering what your actual price per successful link will be, we'll be checking for success rates in every blast and reporting those historical numbers to make it a lot easier for you as a customer to see which vendors are offering the best value per blast.
Furthermore, vendors will be made to promise a certain number of successful links. So if they don't meet their promised amount of successful links we will be automatically sending it back for them to fix.
We have a goal of being the highest quality link building vendor out there, and these will cause major strides in quality assurance.
5) Happy Holidays!!!!
We're very excited for what the new year has in store. We'd like to thank you so much for being part of the Link Emperor Revolution. 2011 was an amazing year, and we've made some really lasting friendships with a ton of our Link Emperor customers! We can't thank you guys enough for all the support you've shown us.
Here's wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season, and ridiculously successful start to 2012.
The Link Emperor Team
