Can we use the service? They require monthly payment for bookmarks/links. The bookmarks allegedly are in categories of hub subject.
I would not recommend using that or any similar automated link building service to promote your Hubs (or any other site really). I believe that would constitute participating in a link scheme, which violates the Google Webmaster Guidelines and also the AdSense Program Policy.
Links from bookmarking sites aren't worth all that much anyway. They were useful once, in the days when Google blindly counted every single link no matter where it was. That's why these services sprang up, and they continue to make money because so many people don't know they're outdated.
These days, Google considers what kind of site the link is on - and they'd be pretty stupid not to know that most directories are created solely so writers can post links, wouldn't they?
A hubber talked about this site at one time, and people became interested - about three years ago. I think people got on the bandwagon at that time. Later, it changed and became a charged site. When it was no pay, it may have been ok, but maybe not. Thanks for info. Paul and Marisa.
In the beginning it was free, and they changed it to payment only. I was right that we cannot use it. Thanks for the confirmation.

Just something I noticed. The hubs that have been edited by Editbot have already picked up more traffic than what is usual for them, even after dismissing my view to see the changes. We also know that Google loves...
