    I have been away from online activities for some time now. I wanted to renew my online marketing but noticed that shetoldme now charges for membership.

    Am wondering if it is worth paying for its membership due to the clamp on bad links. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks

      I stopped using it when they started charging.  I've stopped using all those bookmarking sites to be honest.

          I just follow what it says in the HP learning center.  It is sensible advice and won't trigger Google penalties. … acklinking

            Actually I've been using automated link building services on my hubs and my profile is PR 2. Sadly Google isn't as "thorough" as it likes to claim it is.

    I thought shetoldme went under a long time ago. It would have to work miracles before I'd pay for it! Can't imagine using it does any good these days if you ask me, but don't take my word for it.

      I agree.  Links on that site are likely to do more harm than good IMO.

    Miriam Weissmann, I took some time to go through the post made there, it look ok but, my fear is that google might view the links coming from shetoldme as bad links and spammy.

      I really can't say, but that would also be my fear. Artificial backlinks killed my old blog, so I'm very careful these days.

    I would be interested in this. I considered paying the money a couple of months ago but not sure what posting on she toldme would do to my blog.

    I stopped when they started charging. I thought it was against TOS to pay for back links. I won't pay for that site, and why do they charge anyway?  .

    Google must have cottoned on long ago that any links from shetoldme are artificial backlinks.

    Agreed, I can't see the benefit of paying for a service which is a little outdated and free elsewhere.

    investinginvest, you can get some quality backlinks from business type social sites Sokule, SWOM, Bizoppers, Sales Spider, LinkedIn and Manta.  I use all of these for my websites as well.  Register free and create your profile with a promotional backlink to your Hubpages subdomain.  There are others, like Squidoo, Yelp, Groupon, Twitter and Facebook,but I don't have experience with those.

    I had also stopped using shetoldme when James started charging for its use.  It was only $12/year (I don't know how much he is charging now), but I had stopped writing at the time and didn't bother.

    Welcome back.  Cheers!

    What on earth do they supply that needs to be paid for? Just allowing the posting articles?
