If I was a marketing guru I might get away with calling yesterdays SocialPiG email a prelaunch stunt, but alas I’m not. It was a screw-up fair and square… I’m sorry.
Yeterday’s email wasn’t supposed to go out at all, it was just an intro paragraph for SocialPiG in BlogPiG Labs. I love Mailchimp’s RSS to mail feature but now and again it can bite you on the …!
Anyway, given the overwhelming response I don’t think too much harm was done. There were a lot of comments and emails so I’ve pulled together the main questions and included a short FAQ for everyone below:
Is it just me, or where’s the actual link to SocialPiG?
No it’s not just you, I screwed up yesterday, there is no link to SocialPiG up yet.
I’ve Been a user of Auto Social Poster since it first came out and I can absolutely say that this technique works. If you’ve got ‘trickle feed’ as well then I’m all over this. When can we dive in?
I know bookmarking works! Yes we do have trickle feed as you call it (I like that name). ETA is still 3 weeks I’m afraid.
How much is it and where can I buy it?
Costing is still TBD but it’ll be inline with our other plugins I imagine. There are services attached to it though. ProxyPiG, CaptchapiG etc.
How does it work?
SocialPiG works by automatically bookmarking your blog posts with several (+30 in phase 1) social bookmarking sites. It does this via a network of SB accounts that we maintain behind an proxy farm and captcha service so you never have to worry about account creation or maintenance ever again. Your posts are trickle fed into the bookmark network gradually to appear natural and build a large organic (deep) backlink network over time. The accounts are also periodically fed with authority sites to balance the average pagerank and domain age in each account. There are thousands of accounts & thousands of IPs available. The maths that goes on inside the bookmark network to control posting rates and times is pretty advanced too.

Hasn’t this been done before?
Not like this. Sure there are plenty of Social Bookmarking tools and plugins out there and I’ve tried most of them. Don’t get me wrong, they’re good, some of them are very good in fact. The problem is they all make more work for me. I have to set them up, I have to create accounts, I have maintian the accounts, I have to schedule them, I have to tweak them, I have to worry about my accounts getting banned because they don’t trickle feed bookmarks, I have to create new accounts….blah! You get the idea, some of you have probabaly been there or are still there. Tools should’t make more work for you, they should just work! SocialPiG just works…
Is this the Holy Grail of automatic backling? (my question)
No, probably not on its own. It’s another string in your bow and a very powerful one at that. The fact that it has zero overhead is the real win here. BlogPiG labs will open soon and you’ll get to see all the other auto backlink goodies we have in development. A combination of them all may well be just the ticket ;)
Can I promote it?
Sure you can, I’ll add the SocialPiG links to our partner page as soon as it’s launched.
