Who uses The Hoth? What are your thoughts (Good or Bad)?
I used the Hoth for 6 months and found the link services to be excellent. The guest post ain’t that great to be honest and content pieces were just OK.
What link services did you use?
When you say excellent… did you see significant rankings improvement?
When you say excellent why did you stop after 6 months?
Good point. I have used them in past and wasn’t too thrilled.
I did see marginal DA improvements
We reached our targets for rankings so we switched to in an house capacity
ok – that probably is a cheaper option.
I agree to an extent. For me the content was less than okay, it actually sucked.
I’ve used them for the blog content for when I need quantity. The rest of the services are quite overpriced. The blitz does next to nothing also.
I’ve heard many good things about them. I use their site for information as they provide a lot of value. I do find their packages a bit confusing though.
Great for citation clean up.
I had them delete all the link building i bought.
Was there a reason for that?
Because it was sh*t 🙂 It would not be future proof for sure.
It was not a guest posting service
What did you base that on? The sites that were providing the inbound links? The text that was used?
I guess I’m wondering because I just received my first report from them for inbound links. The sites themselves looked sketchy AF, but they all had REALLY good DA…70+ and 80+. I was a little surprised, but I used a third party to check DA…not The Hoth’s own tool.
They were link farmy, not usable for any purpose for any human ever. Completely artificial.
Careful of heavily weighing your link profile on high DA links…Google wants to see a natural looking link profile and a high concentration of high DA links is not natural and can get you stung…
Any recommended alternatives?
As an alternative I’d recommend PointVisible.com.100% outreach based links. No PBNs, no pre-made lists or anything similar. I’m a co-founder and might be biased but, if this helps, we do have 100% positive reviews on TrustPilot. I’d be happy to show some samples or explain our workflow if someone’s looking for outreach based links.
The Hoth sucks. Stop building low quality links. Invest in high quality PBNs. Try one of the exclusive PBN services like NinjaLinks if you are serious about ranking.
I got nothing when I Googled “NinjaLinks”. That’s not a good sign.
It’s exclusive for good reason, it’s .net in case you are wondering.
Most good PBN’s are not listed, have a robots and almost 99% of the time requires an invite to keep the riff raff out… SAPE was that a few years ago before every Tom, Dick, Harry and Barry jumped on that.
Agreed, SAPE did a poor job of filtering / restricting it’s members.
Correct me if I am wrong but is Google now looking at penalising PBN’s ?
They always do.. it’s strictly against their T&C’s.
So why do these agencies exist, according to PosiRank they don’t use PBN’s has anyone here used PosiRank?
It exists because there is still value in offsite contextual link-building unfortunately. Better ways of getting value personally.
So would you use an outsourced link building service who use a PBN. The problem we have right now is that we need to implement good back-link strategies but are stretched for resources, I would love to hear what you think or PM me, thanks
Will send a PM, but i have found a very good omni channel content strategy is FAR more valuable than crappy links. When placing a link you have to look at C class IP blocks, traffic stats, etc… not just about DA, PA and all that. Those signals can be gamed and working out a ROAS on link building is fruitless.
Thanks, I appreciate the help on this one.
Could you please send me a PM re: omni channel content strategy – Many thanks!
Anyone who comes within 100 feet of ANY PBN’s at this point is gambling with the livelihood of their clients. Way too dangerous…
Interesting, they have good reviews. What are better alternatives?
