As I am an SEO Expert and working in this industry for last four years, I use to check online SEO tools or software. Recently I discovered Bulklink.org – it’s another free backlink generator, search engine submission and bulk ping service site launched in around 2013 according to network-tools.com. I’ve seen lots of bulklink generator services still online today though Google released their penguin update more than a year ago and millions of such services got slapped after the update! Wondering why do people still prefer to make such kind of tool? Are they really worth to try? To find out the answer of these questions I actually tested bulklink.org with one of my new websites!
Please note, I said I tested bulklink.org with one of my new websites. As it’s a new site, there is nothing to worry about. I did verify my website in Google Webmaster Tool, Alexa and Bing and submitted sitemap.xml through the Google Webmaster Tool account. I installed Google Analytics tracking code and created robots.txt file. Everything seems ok but alexa rank for that site is around 8400K. Since Google is not going to update their pagerank toolbar therefore I rely on alexa ranking. Alexa ranking doesn’t work like Google’s Pagerank toolbar. If you want to find out how are Alexa’s traffic rankings determined you can check their official post about this.
Anyway, it’s okay for me that my site’s alexa rank is like 10 million as it is totally new and there’s not much contents or backlink. I was thinking a way to move down this site’s rank under 5000K from 8400K! As a result I submitted my website link in bulklink.org! chose all the Search Engine and Ping options, filled in the captha and hit the “submit” button. Keep in mind that I intentionally didn’t pick the “Backlink” options. Though I wanted to test this service, I don’t want to get automated backlink! I know how to get quality backlink and there is no need for me to get automated backlink for my site. I am just curious to see whether there is any advantage of using this tool.
When you hit the “submit” button it would take awhile to finish the whole process. You can see the submission statistics and you are free to stop/pause the process anytime. I like their stop/pause feature. If you find something suspicious or bad links you possess an option to pause or stop the process. Finally the process is finished (after half an hour or so, I have slow internet! The whole process would take only 10 minutes from your end if you have good internet connectivity). Now I need to sit back and watch the impact of my site’s alexa ranking!
The next day I checked my site’s alexa ranking and there’s not much change! I was disappointed! What’s the benefit of using such services then?! But I thought I’d check again tomorrow and if there is nothing satisfactory I’d not bother to check again and write a blog about this! The very next day morning, I again checked my site’s alexa ranking and I was somewhat chocked up! It’s down to 5600K from 8400K! I didn’t do anything after the submission. As I wanted to see the impact I didn’t do any link building or anything after the submission process. I have no idea how my new site’s alexa is down to 5600K but I truly believe I can leverage such services in a meaningful way. Look, I already told I didn’t select automated backlink options and I don’t imagine Google is going to penalize my website because of bulk ping or search engine submissions! Is it wrong to submit a new website to hundreds of search engines and ping sites to make its contents indexed faster? I don’t feel so. Moreover, it was a new site. What worse could happen? I am extremely impressed with the results of bulklink.org and I’d give a try to similar tools for my upcoming new sites!
