Articleranks 2.0 Review

by Anthony Johnson on August 23, 2012

Articleranks 2.0 Submit NowArticleranks 2.0 is much like a blog network where people can submit articles to a on topic network of blogs and get backlinks to their site if the owner of the blog accepts the content also if you are a blog owner you can get targeted content free to add to your site this is a win win substation on both side.

Articleranks 2.0 has also made some great improvement to the site by adding social media sites to their network.  As we all should know now that Google and probably other search engines are now using social signals in their ranking algorithms to determine which pages are to rank the highest.  Having this option can really give you the edge you need to success all in one system.

Now you can also receive great content to your social media accounts like facebook, twitter and much more sites, to me this is a step up in the right direction for getting content shared and helping more people get exposure to their content and generating more leads and sales in their business.

 

ArticleRanks 2.0 Memberships Plans

If you never used articleranks you should because they have 3 membership plans for you to choose from when joining articleranks system.  Here are the 3 membership plans you can choose from when signing up for the first time.

1. Free Account – You have access to articleranks distribution Network of Blogs. Also you can add your site of ftp logins information or email address and have social accounts added to receive free content.

In the free account you may only choose 1 top level category for free and additional category there is a fee.

You can also have 6 domains you can add to the articleranks system. There is some disadvantages of have a free account and that is low priority distributions which means that you would most likely be on the bottom list when receiving content for your sites.

Another disadvantage is that you have to earn credits by allowing other article members to post their content on your site with a backlink so you must have a dofollow blog or you can buy credits if you prefer.

If you buy credits from articleranks the minimum amount of credits you can purchase is 10 credits which will cost you $20 and it cost 2 credits for article publishing.  This also another cost with depending on which payment option you choose also.  There are at the moment two payment processors 2checkout they charges 5.5% at checkout and Skill (Moneybookers) they charge 2% at checkout.

2. Starter Monthly Account – Access to the distribution to Network of blogs.  You can add sites or ftp account logins, email addresses and social accounts to receive content for your site.

Get 1 top level category for free any additions will cost a small fee to add other categories.

Now you can add up to 10 domains to the articleranks system

As a starter monthly member the distribution of your articles can be by FTP, email or to social sites. There is no limit to the amount of articles you submit to the system plus you are getting better rankings and more traffic because of the extra distribution method on the starter account.

The price of the starter monthly member account is a price freeze guarantee at 39.99 a month which a great price to submit unlimited amounts of articles.

3. Pro Monthly AccountOnce again you get complete access to the distribution to the articleranks network of blogs.  You still have the option to add website, or you ftp account logins, email address and social accounts like facebook and twitter and much more to receive free content.

Distribution of your articles via FTP, email and social sites.

At this level you are also getting bookmarks (backlinks) built back to your articles which will help increase with the indexing of the articles.  Submission of articles are unlimited no need to worry about credits.

Pick 3 top level category for free unlike the free membership and starter membership which only allows 1 top level category.

Unlimited domains you can build backlinks too and priority distributions.

And a guarantee price freeze on your pro membership plan.

 

 

How to use ArticleRanks 2.0

If you are a beginner and just getting into article marketing articleranks is the place to start off with blog networks.  Articleranks is probably one of the easiest blog networks to use to me, first you are going to need to create an account with articleranks sense they have a free account I would suggest starting off with that account first unless you have many sites that need backlinks to them.

Once you have your account you want to hover over articles and just below click on Add Article.  You will come to a screen like the graph below here you will be adding your content or spin content.

Articleranks Article Submission

 

Next you need to choose your category this is one of the most important parts making sure your content goes to the most relevant blogs that are on your topic.

After picking the right category you need to pick which countries you want your content to be posted in normally I will do a search for English speaking countries here’s a link from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_where_English_is_an_official_language this will help you to choose the right countries.

After picking the right countries you have the option to pick a date and time when your articles will be distributed.

Articleranks gives you the option to add a article save draft then spin your content with their in-house content spinner.  If you prefer not to use their spinner I would suggest taking a look at these content  spinner  tools like thebestspinner  Spinchimp, or spinrewriter.

But if you are short on time and just want to copy and paste spin articles into the system, I would check out these two services that are available articlebuilder.net and ultra spinnable articles.

There is a limit of only 3 contextual links inside your article so make sure every time you spin that article you are going to have 3 links placed inside of the article this is a mistake I made when I first started using articleranks some of my articles where being placed on sites with no links in the article rookie mistakes.

Making sure you have the right syntax this is one of the minor problems you might run into with articleranks they use the syntax {sentence 1~alternative sentence 1~alternative sentence 1}.  If you have ! and ? make sure they are inside of the syntax like !} this will save you a lot of headaches.

One of the most forgettable thing I always seen to forget is the tags make sure you add related tags.  Next Distribution Limit (zero/blank = unlimited) and if you have blogs added to the articleranks system make sure to check Do not publish this article on a site that I have submitted option then you check the option letting articleranks known that your are the legal owner of the article and your done.

Adding Youtube Videos

ArticleRanks Add Youtube Video

Go to YouTube to get your embed code paste it in the YouTube Video URL section then at a hyperlink code with your keyword in the YouTube Video Link Anchor Text section and you’re done.  Your YouTube video will show up at the top of your article centered with your anchor text just below it.  If you don’t exactly know how to create a good video check out video traffic academy.

 

Adding a site

Getting a site add to the articleranks system can be rewarding for you when you add a site articleranks gives you credits for each distribution on your site base on the PR of the site.  Articleranks gives you many options to accept content you can add a URL or you can add your FTP logins information or you can just add an email address and post the article on any site you want to. But before you add your site make sure you read the requirements first before you take that step forward.

ArticleRanks Add Site

 

 

 

ArticleRanks 2.0 Social Sites

Twitter and Facebook Integration is one more option you have to get free content send to your twitter and facebook accounts.  Facebook accounts users can also broadcast their messages on multiple users’ facebook profiles.

With twitter you can get specific and relevant content tailored to your twitter account needs.  Start getting daily free content updates to your twitter account that your followers will love.

Articleranks also supports popular web 2.0 sites  like multiply, livejournal, squidoo, linkagogo, tumblr, xango, soup.io,  and posterous.  As a reward you will receive 5 credits for adding your login information to articleranks system for every social site you add you can use these credits to add your own spun articles to the system to get backlinks to your site.

ArticleRanks  2.0 Article and Site Statistics

On this graph the statistics tracks two types of data and gives you the results the first one is sites statistics this is if you have a website added to the system to receive articles.

ArticleRanks Articles And Sites Statistics

 

 

How many banklinks will you receive from a spun article?

According to articleranks research you should receive around 20-300 backlinks depending on which category you select and the number of categories you select will determine how many backlinks you receive from your submission.

ArticleRanks Cons

What I don’t like about articleranks is the syntax that they use I think it is very inconvenient for marketers to convert their spin article to a different syntax.  Doing this may cause some confusion and produce errors or mistakes while submitting articles.

 

Conclusion

I must say my experience with articleranks 2.0 has been a good one and I would recommended this blog network to any member trying to increase their ranks in the search engine.  In my past experience I was receiving about 50 – 60 backlinks per article submitted with just the Free membership account.  I have to say that is pretty good if you only paying $20.00 for 10 credits and it only cost you 2 credits to submit a spin article to their network of blogs.

 

Additional Information

Articleranks has launched a new site for social media sites called socialsharer.com it’s an innovative system that can help you get the word out about whatever you want the world to know about you or your business.

TweetadderTweetadder 3.0 is without a doubt my favorite professional twitter automation software tools to use to get thousands of new followers on twitter and building relationships in real-time.  Many small business owners an entrepreneurs use this software to gain more targeted follows on twitter daily.  With twitter being one of the top social networks in the world with over 140,000,000 active users and 340,000,000 tweets per day these number probably have increased much higher.

The old way of getting followers one by one manually was too time consuming for me, I found it almost impossible to reach my goals in a timely manner by manually adding twitter follows and not to mention that they had to be targeted liked-minded follows also this created problems because I had to search thought each followers bio profile to make sure that they meet my criteria.

On top of that I had to follow each and every new user on twitter manually I also had to unfollow every twitter follow that was not following me back.   I spent hours trying to build a liked-minded community to get my messages out and share my ideas, and opportunities with others.

Then came alone TweetAdder 3.0 I’m not sure how I heard of it but I know that this was exactly what I was looking for to do my twitter marketing and grow my audience.

Tweetadder 3.0 Features


To Follow List

Profile Data Search – This could be one of the strongest user searches options on TweetAdder, in this search option you can search for user by their Bio.  One of my favorite searches is to search for keywords in the Bio like mlm, make money online these are common words used by everyday marketers use and I get thousands of new users on my follow list.

Location Search – You can search by geographic location anywhere around the world with keywords and typing in a city and/or state.  Also the min. Miles you can search is 25 and the max. Miles you can search is 1000 you should be able to find thousands of new customers with this kind of search ability.

Followers of a User – With this option you can input a user’s name and get a list of profiles following a particular user.  I must say that this is an unethical approach and I do not recommend doing this I think that there is a certain standard if you are doing business online.   TweetAdder is already a good enough tool that you should be able to find lots of followers without using this method.

Followed by a User – This option is similar to followers of a user but you obtain a list of profiles a user is following.

Twitter List – A list is a curated group of Twitter users. Let me explain that in a little more details let’s say you own a company and want to create a list of your social media employees profiles on twitter you could create a social media list to keep track of all their tweets in one place.

So a list can be very helpful in certain businesses or individuals with a large twitter followers it can get you organize and group certain people together so you don’t have to look thought some many tweets.  Tweetadder lets you sort thought a twitter users list and add them to your To follow List by doing this you would probably get a very targeted list if it meets your criteria.

For more information on Twitter Lists https://support.twitter.com/articles/76460-how-to-use-twitter-lists#

 

Follow and Unfollow Users

Follower Users

Follow – This very basic option here all you have to do is type in the amount of twitter followers you want to follow usually I follow anywhere from 200 to 400 followers a day on older accounts, but if you are a beginner I would probably recommend around 50 followers a day.

Time Delay Between follows:  This is a very important setting what it does is this keeps you from looking like an automation software and more human like.   This will also keep your account from getting suspended or banned because there are twitter bots that track how fast you are following users.   If you are following to fast they will catch on to this quickly, I would set this to 2 to 8 seconds a follower

Automation Settings

Unfollow Users

Everything with the unfollow users option is pretty much the same as the follow users except visa vera you unfollow users and you have the who to follow options.

Who to follow options

You have 3 options to choose from the who to follow options:

  1. Unfollow any nonreciprocal follows
  2. Unfollow nonreciprocal follows that were followed using Tweetadder
  3. Unfollow All follows (except whitelist)

If you are wondering what to keep your setting on just follow these setting below.

Tweetadder Who to unfollow

 

Tweets

The tweets section allows you to import and export tweets or randomize the order of your tweets to twitter.  Tweet can also be put on automation. One other feature that is not talk about a lot with Tweetadder is you can upload MP3 files and add symbols to your tweet which will stand out.

Unique Tweets Generator

If you ever spun content then you might already know how to use the Tweet Generator

 

RSS Feed

Allow you to add your rss feed and it will post your post on twitter on automatically daily. Great for promoting old blog post but make sure you don’t add to many words because twitter only allows 140 characters.

Retweet

Allow you to retweet any twitter users messages this might come in handle when you want to return the favor if someone retweets your tweets.  You also have the able to time your retweets so if you wanted to post retweets between 20 to 40 mins.  There is also a maximum amount of retweets options so you dont look Spam on twitter.

Messages

Thank You Message

Is great for promoting your business or building your band here are a few examples I use daily. Always try to add just a message and not a link.

Tweetadder Thank Your Direct Message

 

Other Messages

This is the how you can connect with you followers and build a relationships with them by communicating with direct messages. You can import messages that you have already written or you can export your messages if you can find other uses for them.  There is also a time delay options between every direct message you send to look more human and other options like send to Oldest Followers First, send to Newest Followers first, or send in a random order

 

Trends

Trends can be very helpful as a marketer when you are trying to find out what people are looking for or talking about at the moment.  Can be founded also on twitter for more information https://support.twitter.com/articles/101125-about-trends#

 

Multiple Accounts

Tweetadder gives you the ability to add unlimited users accounts and run these accounts simultaneously which will boost your productivity, it’s like hiring a virtual assistant to handle your twitter marketing accounts ,but now all it takes is a few clicks of the bottom and you can run multiply accounts at a time on autopilot.

 

Activity Log

Keeping track of all your activities is a most when working with automation software you never know when a glitch in the system might happen and you didn’t even know it happen.

New Features Tweetadder 3.0 Pro Tools

Tweetadder New Pro Tools

 

There are two new features with TweetAdder 3.0 they are Private Proxies and Virtual Private Desktop / Virtual Private Server both features are very helpful addition if you have many twitter accounts or you prefer to work for anywhere.

Private Proxies –   Tweetadder has work with MyPrivateProxy to offer private proxies. Unfortunately Tweetadder doesn’t work with all private proxies and require some additional assistant some proxies block certain HTTP headers that Tweetadder needs to communicate with twitter.  But Tweetadder has work out these problems to make sure all the private proxies will work with MyPrivateProxy.

Virtual Private Desktop / Virtual Private Server -  After many suggestions from tweetadder users to have it in the clouds or a web-based version  running on a server is now available for customers  now you don’t have to run your computer all day and night on automation mode you can just let it run in the clouds. Plus you can access from any computer with an internet connection.

 

How to use TweetAdder for Business

Most small and local business owners or marketers purchase this professional twitter automation tool to get more clients, sales, or leads in their business to be more success and grow their business and profit on autopilot.

One of my strategies that I use if I’m searching for new clients to target on twitter is to find out everything I can about my customer.  So I will do as much researching as I can to know as much as I can about the client or customer.  Let’s look at some explains how to use TweetAdder for business

Local Business Owners

For explain let’s say you own a local Computer and Repair Shop in Atlanta GA and you are trying to get more local client to your business one way to do this with TweetAdder is to do a Location Search you can search with in a 1000 miles max. and 25 miles min. with what every city and state you enter with your keywords.

But makes sure you know your customs and what I mean by that is you should know what keywords they might have in their Bio or what they are tweeting about so you can target these keywords for max. Return on you searches of new clients also you may need to check out their wants and needs to do the right keyword research because the right keyword is everything when looking for new local customers.

This next explain will be for Online Business Owners and Ecommerce sites

Having an online business to me has its advantages you have the ability to have customers local and worldwide and you don’t have to have store hours you never close online.  In this online explain I want to stay on computers so this online business is going to be a computer repair supply store selling repair parts for computers.  So what is one of the best ways to use Tweetadder 3.0  to gain new customers to your online ecommerce store.

I currently get anywhere from 30 to 40 hits to any URL that I post on twitter at any given time, I know that I can do ten times better than this because I don’t really watch what time I’m posting a tweet I just tweet away.  There is a website called Tweriod.com gives you the best time to tweet on twitter base on your tweets and your follower’s tweets.  Your first analysis is free up to a 1000 followers then the next analysis is a small fee.

But I don’t think any of this would be possible without the automate software tool that I use every day call Tweet adder this is one of my secret weapons that I use every day to get any way from 40 to 50 new followers on twitter daily.

 

Here is a screenshot of the results I’m getting in my email account now after using TweetAdder

Tweetadder Inbox Messages

 

Dos and Don’ts of automation on Tweetadder

The Don’ts’s of using automation is you shouldn’t use the automation feature of Tweet adder on everything is that it could get abusive and looks very inhuman to other twitter bots and you would give the impression that you are using an automation tool which would be very bad for your account because twitter could banned you twitter account for using an automation tool like Tweet adder.

The Do’s of using automation tools like Tweetadder is it saves you time and money especially if you have a lot of accounts.

 

Reaching the 2000 followers limit

Twitter has a rule on aggressive following other users on their platform if you reach 2000 followers on twitter and try to follow more users you are going to get an error message

To explain it in more details I just rip-off a section of Twitters Help Center page under the Following Rules and Best Practices so that you can understand what happens when you reach the 2000 followers limit.

Twitter 2000 Follow Rule

 

TweetAdder Purchase Options

Tweetadder also gives you flexibility when purchasing.  You have the ability to upgrade later if you need more users on your account. Here is a layout of what it will cost

1 Twitter Profile user    $55      click to try

5 Twitter Profile users   $74    click to try

10 Twitter Profile users $110  click to try

Best Deal on the Market

Unlimited Twitter Profile users for a one-time payment of $188  click to try

To me this is a great deal to get unlimited twitter followers for unlimited twitter profile users and never pay again even for the upgrades you get with the software are totally free of charge.

How to Upgrade your Tweetadder Profiles

When you first start Tweetadder you should see a screen like this one.  You should see I have the Registration button outline in red click that button to proceed to the upgrade Tweetadder license.

After proceeding you will come to a screen like this just click the Upgrade tweet Adder License button

Tweetadder Registration

 

Then you will be taken to http://www.tweetadder.com/upgrade  Here you can enter your Registration Code that was email to you when you first purchase Tweetadder the first time then purchase your upgrade option.

Also let me explain how the upgrade option works let’s say you purchase the 1 Twitter Profile user option for $55 then later now found out you need an additional 4 more profile users this is how you upgrade and only pay the difference in the upgraded profiles example:  would be you paid $55 for the 1profile then upgraded to 5 profiler which is $74 so you subtract the difference $74-$55 = $19

 

Conclusion

After reviewing this software I have to the conclusion that this is a great automation tool for anyone to use and I highly recommend it.  I’ve founded that after using Tweetadder for months now that I have contently increase my followers on twitter on a regular basis, and I was able to get sign ups and earn commissions also.
