For those who have experimented with Redgage, I'm wondering if you've found that your Google page ranks were negatively influenced. Is it worth it to post your links at Redgage? Not worried about the money part--only how it affects page rank.
To be honest with you, I have been posting links on Redgage for quite some time. The earnings from links is pitiful at best. As far as back-links I really do not care one way or another. It takes about 1 minute to post a link, and that is the only reason why I still post there.... However you may be right about Google and a possible negative impact as I have begun to see a bid drop in my daily views on hubs with RG links....
Luis is right. The backlinks aren't valuable in Google terms, but they are quick to do. I don't think they count for a lot positively or negatively, to be honest. (I struggle to see why Google would penalize Redgage, but I suppose it's feasible).
Redgage is not a lucrative passive earnings site either - having said that, I've earned $50 after 6 months there, so I shouldn't complain! ;-)
I really haven't seen anything negative from RedGage. Just like everyone else says, I post there because it is easy. Besides, you never know how many readers will come here through that link.
I used to post all my links on Redgage.
I don't post for traffic but for increased visibility/backlinks.
I have not posted a single hub there since I got put in Google's sandbox, and almost none of the 100 or so hubs I have written since then get Google traffic, yet some of the older ones, that were linked on Redgage do.
Take from that what you will

I discovered RedGage a few days ago. You can post photos, documents, videos and links on the site, and get paid for doing so. Only cents, but to get paid to post links to hubs or sites is novel. So I now have several...

Okay, I've tried both firefox and google chrome, which usually work with redgage, but for some reason it's not allowing me to post up links to it regarding my current hubs. I don't know why. Has anyone else...

I just wondered if anyone backlinked their backlinks, like putting Shetoldme links on Reddit for example. I'm seriously running outta ideas of how to get traffic.

There is a lot of bad SEO (search engine optimization) advice out there, and the use of automated services that procure backlinks to your Hubs is one particularly egregious example. Using services to get backlinks can...
