Hi - has anyone done/seen a review of SEO Optimatic? (linked to the GoMobile team)

They say their tool works on something called a private link network to build links...

It sounds a complete scam, as it's building "private links" - Alarm Bells are Ringing!!

If anyone else has any info on it, I'd appreciate if you could point us to it.

Until I see a review from a WA member that says otherwise, it may be a good idea to be wary of this big shiny object!

Thanks, Mark

Sounds very shady and not unlike SEO Profiler who uses unsuspecting victim's website comments and forums to load their customers crap on, including porn sites. I'm sure this is what they mean by "private links." I would not touch them. Caveat Emptor.

Another one which has been around for over four years now is called Article Marketing Robot, or AMR for short. This one got shutdown for a while but it rose from the ashes as it were, somehow (but not Phoenix-like). I know of an Internet Marketer in the US (who is a regular on the Warrior Forum) who boasted of having a dedicated server in his house which was on 24/7/365 and its sole job was to pump out articles which had been "spun" - he claimed to be sending out 100,000+ emails per day to unsuspecting, I mean opportunity seekers! Unreal.

Cheers Nicky - I think Warrior Forum is filled with a mix of people - some genuinely looking for the same help you get here at WA, and others who are blatant spammers like the one you mention.

All the best, Mark

Yes Mark, you can say that again! I made the mistake of signing up to his mailing list - well, I purchased a $7 product from the Warrior Forum, one of those WSOs - and then I got absolutely peppered with emails all containing offers of this, that and the other from this guy! I had to unsubscribe or my Inbox would have filled to maximum capacity and overflowed (not easy with Gmail as you get a 15GB allocation). I've never seen anything like it.

I think the product was called FastAttackSEO (with follow-up products, one of which was called FastAttackLinks) or something like that and it was really all about tricking Google, which probably works for a while, if you're one of the lucky ones but it's a false economy as Google's algorithm is pretty smart so you're always playing catch-up!

The ironic thing about all this is that this chap was telling people (in his products' introduction) about how he used to practice black hat techniques but had "turned around" as he got fed up chasing the latest trick!

So yes, I agree, the Warrior Forum is filled with a mixed bunch, for sure.

All the best!
Nicky

Cheers Tom - I did a lot more research on private blog networks (PBNs) and private link networks since posting this - and I've came to the same conclusion as you - it's blackhat - ie. not something you want to risk your hard earned businesses with.

All the best, Mark

You will want to avoid anything that promotes private link networks. They will line the pockets of the owners and no others.

This one is particularly bad as it provides hype but no substance.

There are 1000s and 1000s of these types and they all seem to be for them--their pocets-- --not for real true online affiliates like us.

I would not waste my time---

Hi Barry - hopefully that is a good thing then - that it's being brought to people's attention that it's a serious scam.

I think with the response of many WA members here, we can avoid anyone getting distracted from creating anything other than quality content.

Cheers, Mark

Interesting that, as when I wrote my original reply here about 2 hours ago, "SEO optimatic review" was at number 5 in Google... it won't be long before it's in the Number 1 slot!

I don't know if its a scam, there are a lot of SEO companies out there so who knows what there like, I don't have any info on them so I cant say, best to see what other people are saying once they have been around a while, people will give their verdicts

Stay as far away from this as you can. This is an absolute scam...you don't want private links and it will hurt your SEO. This is another company that is trying to earn revenue from the "unknowing" customer.

Hi Kyle/Nicky/David/Doug/Debbie/Tommy - thank you for all your replies.

I know because of the training here that it is a scam - I just wanted to bring it to people's attention, and was hoping someone would already have reviewed it and let everyone know about it.

Hopefully this post will help that to happen.

The webinar talks a great game - but one thing that ALWAYS flags up to me is the endless (hour or so) powerpoint/video, that you simply can't fast forward to the bit where they tell you what the actual product is.

Therefore you get sucked in to their mind games, and salesman tactics, that are proven to win people over (or brainwash them) time and time again.

If you could just drag the pointer forward, then I would trust it a lot more.

In fact, that's probably the single thing that hooked me with WA the first time I came across it - I could drag the pointer to wherever I wanted in the video - I could pull it back, push it forward, watch it again from whatever point I wanted...

K&C maybe not intentional (maybe it was) but to me, it struck me as something different to the normal scam...

Such a subtle feature - but one that I've learned over the years, is a tell tale sign of a scam. If you can't go straight to the end game, then why are they trying to stop you?

Can only be to put big shiny objects in front of you, and "customer testimonials" etc etc to make you think this is a real product, that will really fool Google and the search engines etc... and to be honest, as I watched it, and tried to also deal with my 6 year old I thought, if I can't pause this and see to my 6 year old, get him washed and ready for bed, then what is this webinar actually doing for me?

It (they) obviously doesn't care about my life - as it expects me to dedicate my precious time to it - including ignoring my boy (which I didn't - I put the headphones down, and came back later - they were still on the powerpoint, and still talking, rather than doing!! - and it was a recording, not a live presentation).

Anyway, I'm glad some other WA members here have responded - it may add weight to promoting this scam.

As a year long member, I'm wary enough these days - but to unsuspecting people trying to make a better life for themselves, this *seems* like such a great product.

All the best, Mark

Hi Mark,

I couldn't find out much info on SEO Optimatic myself (I typed SEO Optimatic review into Google) however, I found one site called CBInsights.com which seem to be promoting it or something.

The main website (www.optimatic.com) was not much help either but rather makes the somewhat bold claim to be "The Best Video Advertising Solution in the Marketplace".

A red flag lit up for me with this one - remember there are NO SHORTCUTS in this game. Creating your own content is hard work in the beginning, but that's what one expect if they want to have a serious, profitable, real and authentic business, is it not?

Take care,
Nick

I spent a few hundred dollars many years ago for a company to Optimize a website for me, they didn't do my site any good at all. Sounds like this is a old company if they think back links still work. Everything you need you have right here at WA, I wouldn't wast my money anywhere else.
