    Last week I found out about this site called SocialMonkee. If you are looking for more backlinks for your HubPages this is a good place to get them. You can get 25 of them a day so you can use a different hub each day.

    This is the first time I have posted in any of the forums here, but I thought this was something that would be helpful to hubbers.

      Mike, I think you will find that these services do nothing but harm in the long term. I understand the attraction (believe me!) but they lead only to disaster. Yes, they will give you great "backlinks" in the short term - and then the frowning, ever-powerful Big G looks down and passes judgement...

      True story: I was pretty much a novice online in May 2008 and I had one site (not a Hub) which was really doing beyond well. I was told of a site like this and assured of all the wonderful things it would do for me. I had only to submit my link, a brief bio and, "Hey Presto!" I'd me an immediate Internet millionaire...

      In those three and a half years, that once wonderful site has had not one solitary hit from Google. Not one... Sine die...

      In other words, avoid these sites like the plague if you wish to have any future online whatsoever...

        Gordon, I don't think this is the same thing .. someone asked that on the Warrior Forum and I've posted below with the response from the owner of social monkee.... his reply seems to make sense to me:

        Someone above mentioned above that this is something that Google won't like. What are the odds that using this service would have the opposite effect and actually have us get slapped by Google?

        It is not true at all, or else why not get link farms and spam sites to link to your competitors to get them off the serps?

        They might penalize links YOU link to from your money/main site, but will NOT penalize your site for getting inbound links from other sources

    Thanks for the information, I will check it out.

    And I think that you will find that HubPages does not like SocialMonkee or any other similar backlinking services!

      What do you mean they dont like them. Is it against the rules?

        HubPages don't like any of these artificial backlinking services, It has been spoken about in Forum threads before and Simone mentioned it at the London HubCamp.

          Isn't any backlinking you do yourself going to be artificial? Things like article submitting, social bookmarking, posting a link to your hub on Twitter and Facebook is not actually getting links naturally.

            Absolutely Mike. You are spot on, and Google actively encourages it by consistently putting highly backlinked sites to the top pages of their search engine, even though a quick look at their backlinks show they are self-attained from spammy link farms using keywords that have nothing to do with the topic.

    Social Monkey takes your content and posts it on all your social media sites with one click of the button.  So you do not have to go to your Facebook, Twitter, Digg, etc... accounts individually and send an alert.  It is attached to all your accounts which you set up in their system.  So it is a posting software.  It is not going to build links for you.  I use OnlyWire and I have never used Social Monkey. For sure a time saver.  But most social media sites are do follow and carry very little weight.  And don't think it is link building - it is really just posting to all of your accounts.

      I've never heard of Social Monkey - the OP is talking about SocialMonkee.

      SocialMonkee posts your links on directories, not social media sites.  I've tried it and IMO it's a waste of time.  Most of the directory sites have no PR and I'd expect Google to classify them as link farms pretty fast, so the links will be worthless.  I know Izzy has used them and she's not impressed either.

      I use Twaitter to post my RSS feed to Twitter, and I use an RSS feed app to do the same on Facebook.  Too lazy to do them individually!

        That's interesting .... I read this as I was about to upgrade to their premium account. As I understand it, they personally own 100 plus sites which as you say, they post your brief articles to. Whilst some are PR0 there are some aged ones which are ranked higher apparently. From reading their responses on the Warrior Forum, they seem to have good feedback on the whole considering it is a relatively new service. One thing I initially missed which may be why some have not had good results, is their advise to ping the RSS feed once the submission report has been issued.

        There's a lengthy discussion here with the Social Monkee owner responding to comments which might be worth reading … onkee.html

          Izzy is more conscientious than me and keeps an eye on the results of her backlinking efforts.  She tells me practically none of her Social Monkee backlinks have ever been indexed.  I know the owners are busy talking it up, but they want your money so what do you expect?

          1. Ritsos profile image42
            Ritsosposted 12 years agoin reply to this

            Yep .. I'm not that conscientious either but have noticed on my free submissions that a few show up ... Maybe in same ways if they don't all show up, that is no bad thing as it looks more realistic to the big G.

            I've just submitted a site to 100 sites with them using a one off payment to do that .. I've spread it over 14 days and will then ping the rss feed. I'll try to check it again in a month and see how many backlinks have appeared and let you know .. feel free to remind me .. Hope it works as it's a convenient system to use.

            Yup, AND I've been Google-slapped in the latest Panda update!

              Ritsosposted 12 years agoin reply to this

              do you think that's the reason though .. I know of some very succesful adsensers that use a similar service .. It's a tricky one as you are competing against people who spend an awful lot in getting backlinks and simply writing on article sites isn't going to anywhere like keep up with them. It's a shame google puts so much importance on backlinks really

              1. Marisa Wright profile image87
                Marisa Wrightposted 12 years agoin reply to this

                I doubt that's the reason and I don't think Izzy is suggesting it is.  But I'm questioning whether it's worth the effort and cost of the premium service, since it looks like so many of the links will be discounted by Google.

                  yep .. I honestly don't know the answer .. I'm on the fence though I like the idea of it. A one off fee to submit to 100 sites is only a couple of pounds so worth a test I think .. the upgrade is currently under £30 too so it's an affordable gamble though if it doesn't work then it is a waste. It does seem that by pinging the sites that they post too helps though judging by other comments ... As I say .. the jury's out .. I'll see what happens with the one I've just submitted and go from there I think

                    I still think it might be useful in future.

                    I actually haven't used SocialMonkee since the subdomains came in. In fact I have not backlinked any of the 19 hubs I have written since then.

                    Might be a good experiment to try. After all, I have nothing to lose at this point in time.

    What do you think about Pinglar? It supposedly drives traffic to your hubs.

    Something I read on a review of Social Monkee may help and I think it's worth trying.

    The person said that he doesn't use it to link to his main article or website url but writes an article with link(s) to that article/website and then uses Social Monkee to link to that second article. His arguement being that even though these links may be low value, they still boost the article that is linking to your site.

    If that doesn't make sense, I've posted his words below:

    Tier 1: This is the actual website, page, or article that you'd like ranked high in the SERPs.

    Tier 2: This is where you write articles to add backlinks to your site, page, or article.

    Tier 3: This is the spot for social bookmarking. You use Social Monkee here to backlink to all of your Tier 2 articles. Not directly to your Tier 1 site, page, or article.

    So if you are worried you are going to get slapped by Panda, this method wouldn't affect your article .. just the ones linking to it ... Sound a good idea?

    1. IzzyM profile image87
      IzzyMposted 12 years agoin reply to this

      Well yes the theory is sound.

      Article marketing does that. You write an article with links back to your main site and post it to article marketing directories, places like ezine who publish articles designed for people to copy to place on their own websites.

      They copy your links too (though people have been known the drop the links), and if that article you wrote is well-written enough to interest 100s of people, when they copy your article, complete with links, you get 100s of legitimate backlinks to your main site.

      And if that article gets hit by an algo update (maybe because it is copied all over the place) it gets hit, not your site.

      This is perhaps the better way to use SocialMonkee to boost the articles you submit to article directories rather than your money sites. This way you can have links back to your money sites that contain nothing but original content while the directory articles have the duplicate content links. Even though SocialMonkee does have a spinner.
