Q: How long do the links take to kick-in and have an effect?
A: Based on very recent tests, typical link effects are taking between 14-28 days. Of course there are outliers in both directions.
Q: Are there any discounts or loyalty programs?
A: Yes indeed.
- Clients that spend over $100 or more per month, receive $1 off all future links
- Clients that spend over $500 or more per month, receive $2 off all future links
- Clients that spend over $1000 or more per month, receive $3 off all future links
These discounts stack with other promotions, but limit at a maximum of $3 off.
So, for example, if there’s a current discount on health links for $2 off and you’re spending $101 per month. Then you can order health links for $3 off.
Your sales concierge will notify you when you’re reaching any of these thresholds.
Q. What's this rumor about free links!?
For every 10 links that go to a single domain (various pages on the same domain count), you’ll get two free lifetime inner page links to that same domain, on a blog of our choice.
These links are ideal for pillowing: creating backlinks for your non-critical anchors such as URLs, brand, and “click here’s”.
You can reach the 10-link-milestone on one purchase or multiple purchases. For example, if you order 4 links in your first order, and 6 links in a later order, then you’re still eligible.
Once you reach 10 links, simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the URL and Anchor combinations you’d like.
Q: What is Rank Club's content creation process?
A: A native English speaker writes a new article for every link order placed and all of our articles are completely unique and 100% Copyscape and Grammarly passed.
Q: Is it OK to change URLs or anchors text after the links have been placed?
A: No. Once a link is placed, neither the URL or the anchor text may be adjusted. The reason is as follows: search engines punish websites that are clearly in control of their own link building. When a target URL or an anchor text is changed in an existing article, it is a clear sign that the site owner has some control of the sites linking to him/her. Thus, we don’t allow URL and anchor text changes, to protect both the network and yourself.
Q: How are cancellations handled?
A: If you’d like to cancel links for whatever reason, log into PayPal and cancel the appropriate subscription in your “My Pre Approved Payments” dashboard (instructions).
When you purchase an order with us, we send you a subscription ID number. You can reference this number to make sure you cancel the relevant subscription.
Please note: Because of changes in the PayPal system, we will no longer be able to cancel subscriptions for you. If you would like to cancel a subscription and you are late in doing so, no refunds will be given.
Q: Can I see the linking site or an example before purchase?
A: No. As a protective measure for our customers and our network, the site we link to you from will only be sent to you after your purchase. However, we will provide metrics for each of the sites and assure you that all sites in our network have clean, branded, non-SEO’d backlink profiles. Thank you for understanding. Here’s an example of what our sites look like: click here
If, for any reason, you don’t like the sites that you are placed on, we’ll remove your links and give you a full refund. But just for reference, this has never happened.
Q: How many links do you think it will take to get to page 1?
A: Ethically, we try to stay away from answering questions like this. They’re simply too hard to answer. As you may know, ranking depends on many different factors, not just links (onsite SEO, the Google algorithm, anchor text diversity, competition, etc.). It’s impossible to know until you try.
That being said, we’ve seen people get to page 1 with just 3 links. More competitive niches take more, of course.
Q: Do you use privacy protection?
A: No. Using privacy protection in the public WHOIS database is an SEO technique and we stray away from blending in with that kind of crowd. Instead, individual site owner personas are created for each site and verified by multiple means.
In addition, a test done in 2014 by Greg Morrison showed that having privacy protection OFF showed a marginally better gain. It’s not substantial, but yes, it does matter.
Q: Do you block bots and crawlers from 3rd party sites that discover backlinks (Majestic, Moz, Ahrefs)?
A: Yes. Rest assured that your competition will not be able to see our sites in your backlink profiles.
Q: Why do you no longer base your prices on the Majestic Trust Flow (TF) metric?
A: As of late 2016, Majestic metrics have started wildly fluctuating. For example, one week the TF might be 20, the next week it drops to 4, then next week it climbs to 25, all the while nothing has changed about our linking site.
It is our opinion that this metric is no longer reliable.
Q: Will your sites work for a foreign language money site?
A: Absolutely. While most of our sites are hosted on US servers and all have English content, they still work for ranking foreign language sites quite well. We have repeat customers in Brazil, Finland, Greece, Indonesia, India, France, Germany, etc who have ranked quite easily.
Here’s of an example of a Finnish site ranking with just one PBN link:
Q: Do you offer Traffic Delivery Network links for rental?
A: As of June 2016, all of our sites are being converted over to the new protocol. This is an ongoing process and over time, all sites will become more and more powerful due to their ability to attract natural traffic.
