    This is a new site/blog that encourages members to post links and leave a short comment. I've gotten a little traffic from the site, and it's super easy to use.

      After registering you have to actually go into the discussions - choose a topic and that is where you post. I had the same problem. Took a couple minutes.

      It's essentially a message board. You register, then post messages with back links to your hubs. All the categories are listed.

    Thanks Holle.  I'm just getting started with RedGage, SheToldMe and Snipsly, trying to do the monetized sites first.  I'm ultimately shooting for 10 backlinks for each hub.  I'm definitely adding this to my list.

    Thanks Habee, I will definitely try it out.  Have you checked out http://www.kirtsy.com/, PR5 and geared to women's interests. Think you have to be a bit more careful about only posting your own stuff.

    1. rmcrayne profile image94

      What about posting under a different username from your hubs?

    Did anyone get this message from Treasuretrove?

    Please note that we do not accept or allowed post with link to website without any articles. link should go with full written articles.. thank you

    1. Daniel Carter profile image89
      Daniel Carterposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Yeah, I just got the message as well. I'll have to rework my posts there, I guess, or just pull them. I'm pretty pressed for time at this point.

      It means you have to post an article at treasurestrove.com, and then they will allow a back link in that article to your one at HP.

  27. habee profile image89
    habeeposted 7 years ago

    I've never received that kind of message! Does it mean the link has to be to a full article? That's no prob!

  28. habee profile image89
    habeeposted 7 years ago

    I just emailed the admin about this. I've been posting there for several weeks without any probs. Wonder what happened?? I'll let you know what I find out!

  29. habee profile image89
    habeeposted 7 years ago

    Update: The admin asks that posts now be ten lines long to include a link. He also said they would stay on the site as long as the site is up so they we can continue to get traffic to our hubs.

    Dang, I don't know why he changed the rules!

  30. sunforged profile image69
    sunforgedposted 7 years ago

    without having 10 lines, or 250 words or 500 words etc. each site has their own guideline, the site isnt likely to get much google love and have benefits to posting at.

    A site full of links is essentially a link farm and has no benefit to viewers so google doesnt recognize them.

    this is good news for those who are using the site

    I joined this site last night after reading Habee's post. I haven't used them yet at all, and I got the email saying links only weren't acceptable.
    In fact, in total now they've sent me 5 emails. In less than 24 hours? I'm regretting having joined already!

    Oh sweetheart I'm not blaming you. Thanks for the link! I don't like feeling as if I've been spammed by that site that's all. They might still be great for backlinking. I might still use them smile

    I still haven't backlinked anything there yet. But I won't lose the site, I've got their emails in my inbox lol. Maybe tomorrow. I wish they didn't have my email address though - else hope their automated machinery breaks down!
    WTG on the traffic!!

    I am now at treasurestrove and have seen several hubbers there as well. Habee is right, it is very quick and easy. However, now they seem to be saying that in order to post a link, you need to post an entire article there, not just a blurb.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image92
      Marisa Wrightposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Yes, I got an email pointing that out. I guess they realized pretty quickly that they were going to get swamped with spam! 

      Not sure if it's really worth posting articles there, there are other places that are more established.

  43. Mike Lickteig profile image88
    Mike Lickteigposted 7 years ago

    After seeing both emails and blurbs about posting "entire articles," I have used it more sparingly than I originally intended.  I have written short articles with links (300-500 words), but I don't do it every time.  I wonder if others have still managed to post with short blurbs?  The coward in me complied with their request for entire articles.....

  44. Dolores Monet profile image90
    Dolores Monetposted 7 years ago

    I think they just want a real short article of about 100 words, which really isn't an article. Shetoldme also seems to want 100 word articles as well.

    Arrrrrgh, I have a lost password with this site. I initiated the "lost password retrieval" process but the tech stuff is set up wrong, I think...

    I enter my address to reset my password, a new link comes to my email and the link takes me to the "reset password" page...I enter my address... a new link shows up in my email... I go back to the password page....enter my email....


    I'm dizzy lol

  46. Marisa Wright profile image92
    Marisa Wrightposted 7 years ago

    I'm rethinking my attitude to this type of site anyway, after Nelle Hoxie posted that she doesn't go near them.

    She has a point - these sites aren't much more than a list of links to other places, with no content of their own.  They're so blatantly a place for self-promotion that you wonder why Google hasn't already developed a way to identify and penalize their use, like they do traffic exchanges.  Nelle feels it's only a matter of time before they do, and then anyone who has used them for links may be disadvantaged.
