For those of you who managed to arrive at this blog without any prior knowledge of Drip Feed Blasts (DFB), check out this post about its first incarnation. Otherwise, continue getting your read on.
I was one of the few fortunate enough to invited to alphatest DFB 2.0. Eagerly, I accepted. The enhancements I discovered blew my mind.
In the past, when you thought of DFB, you thought of a user-friendly, convenient and professional Xrumer blasting solution. Somehow, between the span of 1.0 and 2.0, it became so much dang more. Two new major features include:
That’s right. You can now schedule social bookmarking blasts. 100 bookmarks per day, per link unit. I’ll talk more about link units later.
This feature almost made me wet my pants. Never before has it been so easy to give sites/pages a quick bookmarking boost. What’s even better is that DFB 2.0 allows you to input spintax in every type of link blast. That means I can generate UNIQUE bookmarks, time and time again. Holy moly. Titles as well as descriptions can be spun to your heart’s content. Upon viewing my reports, the links were all good. All of them.
With the same ease as social bookmarks, you can use DFB 2.0 to schedule directory submission blasts. Yes, you may also use spintax. Due to the nature of most directories, you’re obviously not going to get immediate results like you do with profile links or social bookmarks, but as long as you make your titles and descriptions not look like poo, they will most likely get approved eventually (if not automatically).
And of course, DFB is still the #1 profile link building (xrumer) solution. I wouldn’t leave it to anyone else.
Poor India. First PayPal screws them over, now this. Of course, there are still some worthwhile SEO services offered by the best of the best (Amit aka Red_Virus comes to mind), but for rudimentary SEO work, DFB 2.0 just made everything a whole hell of a lot easier.
How I Use it
Most of the e-mails I get are from novice to intermediate SEOers who are looking for more specificity in how I go about optimizing my sites, particularly in the off-site department. It used to be a long winded, complicated response (which I was often too lazy to provide). Nowadays, it’s somewhat simpler.
First of all, you’re not going to get rich by using DFB alone. Get that delusion right out of your head. However, I will say that it is the ONLY subscription based SEO service that I currently use.
The formula is simple:
1. Good, exclusive backlinks.
2. Support system of DFB backlinks
3. Decent website/niche
Notice the lack of question marks.
Number 1 is of course the more difficult part. That is where your own creativity and social engineering come into play.
Number 2 is only a matter of signing up for DFB.
Number 3 is your problem, bro.
DFB 2.0 features calendar scheduling as well as regular daily scheduling. Daily scheduling is now referred to as the “loop.” Blasts in the loop will continue running daily. However, if a blast is scheduled on the calendar, it will take priority over the loop. Once the calendar blast(s) is/are completed, the loop will resume.
Oh yeah, link units…
Previously, DFB power users had to manage multiple accounts, which meant logging in and out, multiple usernames + passwords, etc. Those dog days are over. DFB 2.0 incorporates “link units.” A link unit basically serves the same purpose as a separate account on the old system. Each link unit is worth either 1k profile links, 100 social bookmarks, or 150 directory submissions per day. Since there is not an infinite pool of pligg sites or web directories, each social bookmarking blast can only be run 3 times (per URL) and each directory submission blast can be run 4 (per domain).
Also, I would like to add that the new interface is fantastic. Campaign management is about as easy as it gets. I would like to take partial credit for that, as an alphatester. Even though I probably didn’t help that much.
If a service doesn’t provide results, I do not continue using it. That’s pretty elementary. I have been a DFB subscriber for over a year now. I am particularly fond of the new social bookmark system. Every time I schedule a blast a see at least some positive movement for that particular URL within a week or so. Sometimes very significant movement. I typically do two days at a time. Obviously there are a ton of factors and my results are very specific to my own sites, but for whatever reason people always want to hear stuff like that…so there you go.
One last thing: I was not commissioned to write this post/review. I just appreciate a quality SEO service when I find one (which is not often). You are now excused to check out the new DFB for yourself.
