    If we properly do all work, we will run to long route of progress without any disadvantage. The two disadvantages mentioned in the post are really harmful

    I really was in mixed emotions when I heard about BMR. On the one hand I am all for quality content but on the other hand, link building is an essential part of ranking a website and unless you have tonnes of money and time you need to rely on link building software and services. I know there have been calls that backlinking is dead but it most certainly isn’t. It is as important as ever.

    I think that’s great move by Google! I’ve registered an account with BMR but never used their services before because some of my friends who used them told me the articles written by them are nothing but craps! Thumbs up to Google!

    Page Rank usually counts incoming link, not just quantity but quality.For example, if Wall Street Journal writes a report on your website, and gives a live link to it, that particular link can helptopush up the Page Rank of your website. it is better than a few links you get from signature space in discussion forum.

    Hey Greg.

    I was familiar with BMR and I had a feeling this was going to happen. It was just a matter of time I believed and I was pretty much right. There service was good but was being used by WAYYY to many people, thus it was no longer “private”.

    Great article

    So now I know. I’ve been contemplating on what really happened with Build my Rank and here it is. Too bad it happened but on the other side, we can see that their loss is for the general betterment.

    I think that if we look at it in a wider perspective it’ll always be like this. If it’s to easy it will stop working. SEO’s and others building links need to realize that it is hard work, if it’s not it’s too risky.

    All Seo work is getting harder and more difficult as Google develops in the future. This is a fact, but there are always people getting around the problems, I guess :).

    Slapping BMR network is the biggest slap of 2012 so far. I do think there will be one even bigger by the end of this year. Recent Panda updates show blackhat is no joke to play around on a long term.

    No such things that is hard when it done properly. BMR is just waste of time to have an attention with. BMR truly building no more.

    BMR was too greedy. If they would’ve put a limit on the amount of members and the amount of bs articles they churn out then they would’ve been able to earn money from their business much longer. But they might’ve been afraid if they didn’t fulfill the demand then some other people will start supplying.

    Any linking network runs the risk of getting shut down by Google. However they do provide a good way to build some quick back links. There are pros and cons, you have to consider both before using such a service.

    It’s good that blog networks like Build My Rank were finally dealt with, however, questions have to be asked about why it took so long? Those networks were publicly advertising what they were doing for well over a year and in that time those using them were able to manipulate SERPs and make good money in doing so.

    Hi Greg, Nice to meet you.

    Your article very good I like it. I think the most important in building the ranking is unique content and backlinks from relevant sites. Content is king and backlinks is the queen.

    I think not only BMR went down but also their competitors like Authority Link Network, SEO Cobra and Free Blog Network. That’s what I here from blogs. Thanks for this article.

    Build my rank got shut down but you can still make tons of money if you know how to create private linkwheels on different C class IP\’s. It\’s basically the same thing or greater.

    Even, I feel the same. Those rich people were gaming Google. Good to see BMR and other networks going down

    When determining which site ranks better than the next, link diversity is typically far more important than raw PageRank. And even though PageRank is supposed to be query independent, Google warps their view of the web graph where necessary to improve relevancy, like when localizing search results:

    The SEO’s have been using Build My Rank profusely to increase traffic to their websites. If Google restricts it, then the SEOs will be having a tough time, no doubt.
