Anyone Use Qondio?

    Ages ago, several Hubbers joined Qassia (now called Qondio) to get backlinks.

    I only wrote a few pieces of "intel" (articles) so that may be why it's never done much for me.  I've now received an email to say that accounts which have been dormant for three months will be deindexed.

    I'm just wondering whether to let it go, or whether it's worth making more effort.  They claim their "intels" are doing spectacularly well in search engine results.

      It works. I don't do a lot of writing for backlinking (just a few article directories), but the little I do at Qondio has increased traffic to my hubs and blog and the "intel" that gets used by others (it works like any article directory) has DOfollow linking at the bottom.

      What is nice about Qondio is that not only can you get backlinks when you contribute, you can write about ANYTHING (to a point)and get backlinks. We screen each others' intel and doing this earns points, which contributes to more backlinking...

      The links within are supposedly not indexed by sites, though readers click and follow. Analytics has picked up on those links for me. The in-text links may not increase my page rank, but they are bringing in some traffic.

      I don't know about others' experience, but I like it. I wouldn't count on it as a major source of traffic, but as with anything else, the more you  contribute, the more it works.

      Urbane Chaos, someone must have linked to one of your hubs when they published a piece of intel.

    I found Qondio as a potential content sharing site, but they wanted a $5 registration fee which I didn't want to pay. So no I haven't got any experience with them. smile

    I'm letting mine go.  Even if I thought the articles were any good, all you get are links with the site URL and no anchor text.  Not worth the trouble. 

    Even with a PR of 5, only estimates they're getting about 13K visitors a month, which tells you that the search traffic is minimal since they have about 40K articles submitted.

      Qondio has greatly improved over the last year of so. You can now get a temporary PR7 link and permanent PR5 links. I've seen a pretty good jump in traffic to my referred to site after I started putting more effort in my link building there.

      I've written a bunch of tips on getting the most out of Qondio. It is worth putting some effort into now.

    What's weird.. Well, I never used them, and actually hadn't even heard about them until a couple days ago.  But, when I did a report through Google analytics it was listed as a referring site. Somehow, I got traffic through them, but I have no idea how. 

    Still, I don't think that I'll ever even try them.  I'll stay with the ones I know that work the best.
