This review of Social Monkee will help you to realize that you should be using this free tool in your blogging and SEO arsenal.
I remember just a few weeks ago I was checking out a blog post regarding Social Monkee and my first thought was, why do I need another back linking tool?
I can say that I am glad now that I didn't let that stop me from taking action and setting up an account to use.
If you are a blogger there is one thing you should be doing that is building high quality back links to your blog. Building back links helps your SEO which in turn drives more traffic to your blog by way of organic search results.
If you are not sure what back links are, let me give you a quick run down so you understand. Basically back links are like someone (a website) holding up their hand and saying “Hey this site is cool to check out, here is link to it on my site!” of course it's a little more complex than that, but I think you understand.
So the goal here is to get as many of these “Votes” or “Links” as possible back to your blog. Google looks at these and will rank your site higher in their index.
So what is Social Monkee?
Social Monkee is a free online tool created by Colin Klinkert that is designed to help you build quality back links to your blog/website through social bookmarking.
Colin has also created incredible sites like ViralURL, Viral Inbox, Viral Hosts, Viral Networks, Viralvideo.name, and Backlinks Kingdom just do name a few. In other words, he knows what he is doing when it comes to creating sites that get results.
First, before you even consider back linking for your site, make sure you have good content of course! It all starts from good quality content. Next make sure you focus on good blog optimization and make your blog a search engine magnet.
The last thing you want to do is to have a blog or site full of junk and spam type posts just to fool Google. Google is a smart computer, and you don't want to make him mad as he will figure it out.
There is a difference between this tool and a lot of the other back link builders you see online. The social bookmarking sites that are used are not the typical ones that we are used to like “Digg” or “Stumbleupon”. These have been specifically created to be unique high quality sites that are promoted by the system administrators.
By posting each day a different piece of content you will in essence be building a web of links all pointing back to your site, and this tool will help you accomplish that wonderfully.
The difference between the Social Monkee FREE account, and the PRO account.
The main difference here is the ability to post more links in a days time. The free account allows you to post one URL to 25 sites once per day. In the free account it also includes a reporting tab for you to monitor your bookmarks.
With the PRO account, you can post up to 3 url's 3 times per day on 100 sites. The pro account also allows you to bookmark each link in a drip fashion over a set period of time. This will make it look more natural to the search engines.
In order to obtain the PRO account you have two options. Upon registering you can upgrade for a one time fee of $47, or you can refer 12 more FREE members and be upgraded to PRO at no cost to you for life. When you think about it, that is a killer deal and the results in my video below will speak for themselves.
I put together a video for you to watch the power of Social Monkee in action and how after a short period my blog posts are now showing up on the first page of Google for highly searched terms.
