    I just started using Xomba a bit ago and ran into a problem this morning.
    Their customer support seems rather rude and short tempered, but maybe I just got hold of the wrong tech.
    Anyway, I just wondered if that was SOP for them.
    If this is the way they do business, I won't be using Xomba anymore.

    I had  atech support question answered quickly, short but correct.

    isnt much reason to deal with them anyway!

    Well after several hours of silence they re-activated my account.
    So I'm guessing the issue was resolved.
    I say "guessing" because they never actually got back to me.

    Sabreblade, can you use your existing adsense ID over there? is it worth becoming a member and putting in the work and time writing over there, or would a blog provide the same results? HP chews up all of my time as it is, but i don't mind because i think this is a great site and i'm moving forward every day. since i only became aware of them because of this thread, you can count me as one of your referrals if you want. otherwise i'll probably just get that blog going that i have on the back burner. thanks!

      There are two types of post on Xomba, one is like an article (over 150 words) and another like a bookmark (over 50 words). The bookmarks are dofollow, and take a matter of seconds, so you should use them just like I will be submitting all of my hubpages. Instead of an alternative to hubpages, use it as a backlink dump which earns you a little extra adsense.

      Sunforged has a great hub about backlinking, in which he talks about 10 sites which provide dofollow bookmarks whilst also earning you cash. I am going to work my way through all 10 over the next few months (I am currently finishing off and soon to be starting xomba).

      I really suggest that you check it out (remember that Sunforged earnt $100+ yesterday on hubpages!).... if you want somebody to give you kicks up the backside then let me know!

    Thanks Ryan for the information. I have been at Xomba, but prefer Hubpages. The whole backlinks posting is an excellent idea.
