Default Arelis Link Builder

I wanted to find out if anyone has used Arelis Link Builder. I have been toying around with the idea of using this for awhile now, but wanted to hear from others who have used it (whether it has produced results or not).

I'm following you through the forums, neofelis! (not)

I used Arelis briefly. My intentions were (a) to see who was linking to my sites, (b) to see who was linking to my competitors' sites, and (c) to post link requests to the folks who linked to my competitors but not to me.

I found Arelis to be very informative, and I ended up with a few more links-in as a result.

The program costs $99 if I remember correctly. It surely wasn't worth a few extra links then was it?

I've also thought about using the software because buidling a link campaign is daunting and time consuming to say the least. I'd be willing to invest the money if it would give me more than just a few link-backs

What did you decide neofelis?

Well ... no program can guarantee you will be linked-to, as you must know. Arelis was useful for identifying the breadth of topics on the sites that already linked to me or my competitors. This helped me to think outside of my usual ruts, and inspired me to reach out for a new set of links. I contacted and exchanged links with around 20 new sites, as a result.

After this exercise, our primary site went from ~8,000 links to over 30,000 links in just one month. This improved our traffic, our algorithm positioning, and our business.

Not bad for making a few connections.

I found an excellent tool that costs only about $97.00 called SEO Elite. www.seoelite.com

It checks where back links of top ranking competitors are as well as anchor text. It also alows you to find link partners by Google Page Rank and keyword which saves a lot of time if you are a PR freak.

Through using this I have found neat little directories and linking opportunities that my top ranking competitors use. There is no hiding now. heh heh heh

Hopefully the competition isn't seeing this now.

Hello James!

Just wondering about this comment..

"Well ... no program can guarantee you will be linked-to, as you must know. Arelis was useful for identifying the breadth of topics on the sites that already linked to me or my competitors.

Holy Moly! And I thought having 100 links was happening..I understand how Arelis helped you "broaden" you perspective in terms of who was linking to you, your competitors, and ideas for cross to linking to sites that are complimentary to your business..

However, how did you get from 8000 links to 30,000 in just one month? That is mind numbing! Did you use the part of Arelis's software that sends out e-mails inquiries to webmasters, asking to exchange links?

Do you have a link management system on your site? Can people automatically add their link to your site? Please, if you would, I would like a little more information about how you did this..I could not even imagine having 30,000 people linking to me!

Thanks for any detailed information you can provide..

Regards..
Robert C. Potter
