INeedArticles Review – Will It Help You and Is It Worth The Time?

ineedarticles reviewI recently started using another service that is somewhat like Iwriter but with a few variations.

It’s called INeedArticles.

This is another service by Jon Leger and one to consider when you want to save time by having someone else write content for you. For my review of INeedArticles I submitted and tested about 20 articles (so far).

So in the review let’s take it from the top.

First:

The first thing you need to do when you get an account is load it with a little bit of cash.  I started with $50 but all you need to start with is $10.

Second:

You need to add a keyword or group of keywords to build your articles around.  Notice, it’s pretty similar to Iwriter at this point.

Third

After you add your keywords you’ll need to make a few selections in a selection box that look like this:

inside ineedarticles

That’s it, you’re done and your articles are being queued and written.

That entire first 3 step process only took a few seconds.  In all I’d say probably around 30 seconds.  That’s pretty fast.

How Fast Do Things Get Done At INeedArticles?

Most of my order I received within 72 hours, some within 24 hours and a few of the articles in 5 days.  I wasn’t a big fan of the 5 day time frame but it still wasn’t bad since I didn’t need the articles immediately.

You can optionally pay a little bit more to get your articles guaranteed back in 24 hour hours or less.  This basically creates an urgent notification and your articles get pushed to the top of the queue.  But, if you’re not in a hurry for content there is no need to do this.

How Was The Quality For This INeedArticles Review?

The quality wasn’t too bad at all.  I gave all of my writers 5 stars except for 2 articles I gave 4’s for some misspellings and poor sentence structure.  But, all in all I was happy with the content I got back.

Nobody is perfect and I make enough grammatical mistakes myself.  Therefore, I do not harshly judge misspellings.  I know that some of you might (yes this goes out to all of my “grammar police” readers *grin*).  But, in 20 articles I found only a few words misspelled.

How Does The Price Compare To Iwriter?

I still somewhat like Iwriter a little more.  Iwriter is slightly more expensive for the most part but they return the content much faster.  I.e. I ordered 3 articles today from Iwriter and all 3 were done in less than 5 hours of sending in the order.

I realize that I Need Articles is newer and has far less writers working the content though (Iwriter has something like 130,000 writers now). So if you’re in a hurry for same-day articles INeedArticles is not for you.

The quality was similar and maybe slightly better at I Need Articles.  I think this is because I Need Articles makes their writers pass a test for speed and their ability with the native English language.

Iwriter offsets this by having a 4.6-5 stars writers only check-box.  I need Articles uses a 4-5 star only writers check box.

Is The Writing 100% Unique At INeedArticles?

Yes.  Just like Iwriter, they must pass Copyscape and anyone who is caught giving buyers scraped or spun content is removed.  I verified all of my articles through Copyscape just to make sure and thy all cleared perfectly.

Some Cool Things About INeedArticles:

One thing I really like about this service is that you can link it together with your Article Builder account.  This handy feature will let you instantly import and create a post using your content from you I Need Articles account without the need for you to log into your blog.  Yes, that means near Auto-pilot.

You can even queue keywords from Article Builder into INeedArticles on auto-pilot as well to make this feature run completely hands-off.  This is a major time saver (which is currently in beta mode) which I think they will add some new additions to in the near future.  Article Builder basically orders the articles on your behalf from INeedArticles, passes them through Article Builder with any automation you’ve requested, uploads the articles to your blog and builds posts for you.

You also get an email notice when your project is complete.

Overall during my INeedArticles review I was pretty impressed with the quality and service.  I will still be using Iwriter for product review style write-ups like I use when I build a site based off of my method I use to build a review site but, now I at least have another place to shop for articles.  Ultimately, I will use both and I have no problem recommending both.

When you need someone else to do some writing for you this service is definitely a time-saver.

Article Builder Review – Is It Worth The Price?

Today I am putting up my Article Builder review.  This is a tool by Jon Leger and I have to say I am impressed by what you can do with it.

Through this review I will not only be sharing my feedback but I am going to give you a walk-through of how to use it plus I can give you a $100 discount if you choose to buy it through me.

My Article Builder Review Part I: The Basics

Article Builder allows you to create content without the need to do any research, pay for a writer or even wait for content.  You can actually spit out dozens of articles in about 30 seconds and I’ll show you below.

So where does all of this content come from?  Jon has the content written in bulk and then added into the tool (this is not private label rights, junk, these are human writte and edited articles).  The tool can then re-write the content based on parameters you allow, and remaking the article into something that can be around 85% unique (you can always add a couple paragraphs of your own writing to make it even more unique).  But, 85% unique is still very good.

Sounds complex?  It’s really not.

It comes equipped currently with 109 categories to choose from.  The reason I say “currently” is because more categories get added based on demand.  So if several people are asking for a particular category Jon will have it created.

Here is a demo blog created with this tool.  Keep in mind you can add a custom header, custom widgets, basically whatever you want.  This demo is just bare bones.  By the way that site ranks #1 for it’s keywords all on auto-pilot and I’ll get into that in a second.

Article Injection Feature:

Article injection allows you to automatically inject additional content into the article.  This makes it more unique by adding tips or ideas to the article.

Here is what an article with tips looks like.

Here is a quick walk-through on how to create an article in less than 30 seconds.

Note: (through out the walk-through simply click images to enlarge)

Article Builder Review Part II: Advanced Features

Auto-Posting With Article Builder

So for this Article Builder review I want to show my favorite feature. 

First you need to have a blog installed on your own hosting and you need to have one category created for your blog.

This feature allows you to setup posting jobs that automatically post to your blog and it takes only about 45 seconds to setup!  Let me walk you through this below:

Here is a graphical Article Builder tutorial walk-through for auto-posting:

That’s all there is to it!  Now the blog will add posts on straight auto-pilot.  You can add ads like Adsense to your blog or whatever type of ads you want.  Using a plugin like ad-injection will let you automatically set ads into individual posts as well.

Unique Auto-Posting

Recently Jon added a new feature to this tool.  It’s called Unique Auto Posting. 

For this Article Builder review I wasn’t able to use it yet as it’s brand new, but here is what it does for you:

If you have an account over at Ineedarticles.com you can fund your account and have Article Builder automatically request writers write content for your blog.  Upon writing, the articles will then be automatically posted onto your blog!

Sorry for the totally geek-out over here, but that is a huge time saver for anyone who is actively growing a blog.  I am sure more features will be added to this portion of the tool as well.  As soon as I test this feature out I’ll update this review with it.  But, knowing Jon it’s going to be awesome.

Auto-Link Building With Article Builder

This feature sounds almost unbelievable but it’s a real thing.  When you use the auto-post feature to make an auto-blog Article Builder actually queues a link building function that builds links for you automatically.  What this means is, no link building is needed.

When I first saw this feature I thought it was total BS.  So I created a blog using this feature to test.

Within a week I’ve hit #11 on Google and I fully expect to be top 10 for my keywords in another week or 2 and soon, #1.

Here is all I did.

Step 1:  Used Keyword Canine to find a domain and grabbed an exact match domain for the keyword.  I spent about 30 minutes doing this.  If you don’t have Keyword Canine, Market Samurai will do, you can get a 12 day free drive of Market Samurai here.

Step 2:  Bought the domain, installed it on my hosting.

Step 3:  Installed WordPress and added a contact page and privacy policy page.

Step 4:  Set up Auto-posting just like I showed you above.  I also set it to post 1 new post per day.  You can opt to post up to 10 new posts on your blog per day.

I plan to make several of these and monetize them all very soon.

So What Can You Do With Article Builder Outside Of Those Things?

For this Article Builder review I wanted to make a point to share with you how I use it.  I not only use it to create blogs with but I use it for link building to my other money sites.

I wrote about how I used it to help get top 10 search engine ranks the other day.  I essentially use it to create web 2.0 properties that link back to my sites and boost them up in search.

I.e. you can take the content that it creates and create:

  • Blogger Blogs
  • Documents For Doc Sharing Sites
  • Articles For Article Directories
  • Tumblr Blogs
  • Other Web 2.0 Properties

It will not only save time, it will save a ton of money if you had to pay someone to build these things for you.  As you know link building is critical to rank your site and this tool will help you do all of that.

What I Would Like To See Before My Next Article Builder Review Is:

Look Article Builder is awesome but I am hoping that in the near future a couple tweaks can be made.

The ability to create web 2.0 properties on auto-pilot just like auto-blogs.  I am not sure if this is possible but this would make this tool even better.

It would just simplify the power of this tool even more.

What You Can’t Do With Article Builder

Here are a couple of my suggestions of places of where not to use this and what NOT to do with it.

First, do not use it on Ezine Articles.  They do not like anything less than 100% unique there.  Trust me from first-hand experience; they will just ban your account at Ezine Articles.  I had to wait a week to be reinstated.

Secondly, do not build Squidoo pages with it either.  Squidoo can sometimes be a pain because I’ve had great lenses with 100% unique content get closed down.  So if they will kill great lenses with 100% unique content they will do the same with only 80-85% unique content.

Final Thoughts:  So Is Article Builder Any Good

Heck yea.  I really like this tool and I really think Jon did an azmazng job gettingthis setup th right way.

So in my review of Article Builder I want to stress one thing.  I am not saying that this should be the only writing you ever do.  I am also not saying that writing your own content is truly dead.  I think the best content is pure unique content just like what you’re reading now.

However, what I am saying is that you can use Article Builder to simply and speed up many tasks.  In my case, I mainly use it for link building ad added extra content to my blogs.  I know many other people who use Article Builder solely for the auto blogging purposes and other people who create a blog and write their own content but also have Article Builder post daily to their blogs.

All in all I give Article Builder an “A” grade and over time I believe it can truly be an A+ with the new additions plus possible future additions.

Writing For More Sales, More Traffic and Becoming A Trustworthy Resource In Your Market

trust writingSo, you want to a ton of traffic and sales from your website, right?  Of course you do!

But, sometimes we all have a tendency to get caught up in writing for the search engines instead of writing for the people that are reading the stuff.

Today’s post is going to be all about how you can…

-Make your post stand out in a sea of online garbage.

-Get people to interact with you on your website.

-Make more sales from your website.

-Get more free traffic.

-Get free backlinks and click-thrus with no extra work.

In today’s Internet we have a flood of poorly written material crowding the search engines.  With the recent update Google made with "Penguin" I noticed it pushed a lot more junk to the top.  Is it temporary?  Who knows.  But, some of this junk is so incoherent that it makes you wonder what the person who posted it was thinking.

However, inside that sea of Internet writing junk there are posts that pop out and make us say; “My oh my that was a good read!”  In return we Google plus the post, like it on Facebook, email it to our friends and tweet & re-tweet great information and share it in many other social ways.

In today’s search engine world we need as many social signals as we can get as well as regular backlinks.  Sure you can just get your stuff ranked in the top of the search engines and that’s fine but why not make something that is going to convert passerby’s into regular visitors, regular visitors into commenters and regular commenters into lifelong buyers?

It All Starts With Your Contenttrust within online community

It’s critical that when you put up a post you…

A). Know what you’re talking about.

B). Have done enough research to know that it will help people.

C). Makes sense for your market.

D). adequately covers the subject and leaves out as little as possible.

How To Know What You’re Talking About When Writing

The first thing you need to do is a little bit of research.  If you’re in a niche market that you’re absolutely new in, that’s O.K. but research your topic enough to know it will help your reader.

The easiest way to write out a nice little Q & A before you start writing.  Your Q & A can be laid out as follows:

Q1: What will my reader get from reading this?

Q2: If I was looking for this information would this article or post help me?

Q3: What would make this post or article GREAT instead of “same old same old?”

Q4: What do I personally want to achieve from writing this? 

Before you start writing simply go through and answer the above questions.  Everything you write should have a clear purpose for your reader as posed in question 1.

Let’s look at some possible things people can get from reading your article. 

It could be anything and you’ll know what your niche wants more that I will.  But, typically people are looking for ideas, help, and instructions or to be entertained.  So if you’re writing on “how to remove eye wrinkles” your reader is likely looking for how to remove eye wrinkles.  But, they might also be looking for an inexpensive way to do that as well.  If you provide directions to remove eye wrinkles and then show them a cheap way to do that wouldn’t that increase the probability that they will buy from you?

On Q2 I want you to think about how this information would help you if you were the one looking for it?  Are you answering their questions?  Are you teaching them something?  Are you completing the entire thought?

I want to touch on my last point of “Are you completing the entire thought?”

I found an article today that started out great but ended up irritating me more than anything.  This particular article was about preventing dandruff in cats by changing their diet.  My youngest cat has dandruff right now so I found this particular article on the Internet and started reading it.

The article pointed out that you need to make sure that your cats aren’t only eating dry food among many other things.

The article opening was great and it pointed out expert sources but where it completely failed and where they would have been able to sell me something was in the close of the article.  Do you know what killed the article for me?

They didn’t mention what food would solve this problem or what I need to look for in a cat food SPECIFICALLY.

The part that should have included specifics about what should be in the food simply said “Make sure the ingredients in your cats food has the right amount of protein, carbs and nutrients.” 

My immediate thought was; “Did I miss the part where they tell me what those actual numbers should be?”  Sadly, they never mentioned those numbers nor do they tell me a brand or send me to a link where I could buy the product that contains the right ingredients.

The article was merely written for the search engines and it ended up not helping me much.  Sure, the article had some good pointers that I will follow but I still don’t know what my cat needs to eat. 

Poor “Chomba” will continue suffering with dandruff for now.

Do you see my point though?  If they just would have told me exactly what I needed I probably would have ordered through them because the rest of the article seemed trustworthy.

So I shared all of that to simply say, make sure your article not only gives your reader the information they are looking for but tell the reader what they need to do or what will help them achieve their objective.  If you can at least do that you’ll have a good chance that they will buy from you.

Let’s look at Q3 now.

What Would Make My Article GREAT Instead Of Just O.K.?

An easy way to do this is go look at what other people are writing in your industry and write your content better.  But, there is more than just writing it better.  Maybe your competition isn’t adding screen shots, the best content writingimages, videos, step-by-step walk-throughs or maybe the writing in your industry is generally poor?

Whatever they are NOT doing, you should be.  In some of my industries people aren’t sharing enough video and walkthroughs or leaving a ton of actual and factual information out.  So I make it a point to add those types of media improvements whenever I can.  Hey, I’m not perfect, none of us are and we’ll all miss some opportunities but the more you focus on it the less likely it will occur.

Is providing this kind of content more work? 

Yep, it sure is.  But, you’ll have a piece of writing and media that can’t be rivaled, that stands out above the crowd and that will get shared by people.

Finally, What Do You Personally Hope To Achieve From Writing This?

What you hope to achieve might be different from someone else.  However, we should never be putting out content we don’t expect people to see, share or complete some type of action.

Do you just want more visitors?  Do you want more sales?  Do you want more public recognition?  Do you want to show that you’re an expert in your field?  No matter what it is, show it off!

A Few More Important Notes

Now and in the future the search engines aren’t just looking for 100% perfectly optimized material.  It’s true that keywords will help the search engines find you and optimized content is important for those purposes.  But, good high quality content helps people trust you, come back to you and buy from you.

I sometimes put up posts (like this one) that aren’t really targeted to the search engines.  But, they help my readers do something; learn something from my experiences so that they can grow their businesses.  You can do this for your readers as well and you’ll likely start seeing improved benefits directly from this.

Should You Do Keyword Research?

Yes!  Don’t stop doing that.  But, rather than just throwing up a 300 word perfectly optimized piece of content on your site focus more on making sure it’s achieving the 4 questions I challenged you to ask yourself about what your contents objective is or not just you, but your reader.  It’s O.K. to sometimes put up a smaller piece of writing and not everything you put up needs to be 1000 words long.  I always say as long as you’re covering the topic and it makes sense to your reader you shouldn’t worry about the length.

Ultimately, by doing this you’ll improve the sociability of your website, the returning visitors to your website and I am willing to bet, sales.

Tell me your thoughts?  What are you doing to achieve a higher returning readership or improve sales?

Also if you have any advice about helping my cat’s dandruff you can put that in the comments below as well 😉

Iwriter Review – How Good Is It Really?

writing deadline I decided to do my own writer review recently and it turned out pretty good.

Time strapped?  But have a lot of writing needs?

We all feel like we're sometimes on a deadline.  We're just busy.  Life isn't relaxed in our fast paced world.

I recently checked out a service that I found online called Iwriter and decided I’d give my no-B.S. review of it.

I have to say I was a little reserved about it at first because usually these type of networks that do this type of writing for you are usually BAD.  I’ve tested other networks in the past and what I usually found was times it was just someone poorly re-spinning junk articles and throwing it out to you.

I don’t know about you but when I want high quality content I don’t want spun articles.  Just a quick note; spinning is when you change the content of an article by exchanging synonyms within the article.

 I actually have no issue with spun content if it’s done extremely well with a tool like The Best Spinner. 

Anyway, let’s move on here.

What I found with Iwriter’s writing service was that there is a lot of good and only 1 minor bad thing.  So what I decided to do was break down my review by what I loved and what I do not love so far.

The Good Stuff In This Iwriter Review

The writing is cheap.  You can select 300,500,700 and 1000 word articles.  Of course, the more words you select the more it costs.  However, the writing is still very cheap.

You simply determine how many articles you want written, how long you want the articles to be and then enter your keywords in the box.  I usually have 1 article for each keyword I input.

One thing I really love with this system is you can select the quality of writing you want.  You can select if you want all of the writers to be able to see your job and start writing for it, 3-4 star writers to do it or even just 5 star writers.

iwriter review

 

What’s awesome about that?  Simple.  Quality. 

If you select the 4.6-5 stars writers you know that pretty much every time the writing is going to come out top notch.  In fact, every time I’ve selected 5 star writers I’ve had 100% perfect results.  You will pay an extra fee to use the 5 star only option but, the time savings is worth it to me.

You can input any special instructions you have for potential writers and you can also select what type of tone you want your article to take on (i.e. professional tone, friendly).

Once you’ve input that you can click to submit your job.

To my surprise they are fast!

I submitted a 20 article job on a Saturday and every single article was written by Saturday night.  I think my total wait time was 6 hours.  Other times I’ve had several articles sent back and completed for me within the hour!

 

Good Stuff With Iwriter Continues

I think the #1 thing I love about Iwriter and why I absolutely love their service is the no-hassle ability to reject an article.  If someone writes an article for you and you do not like it, you can click the “Reject” button and the article will be sent back out to all the other writers again.

The nice thing about that is you are never stuck with content that “sucks.”  That feature alone makes this service awesome in my opinion.

You also have the option of allowing a particular author to never be able to do a job for you again or only allow certain writers to work for you.  I’ve only had to block 1 writer so far.

Finally, on the good side of this Iwriter review is that all the articles that are produced for you are run through Copyscape to make sure they are unique before you get them.  This prevents you from getting junk articles that would be seen as duplicate content. 

So, you never need to worry about your articles showing up in 15 places on the net and Google giving you a good smack down for having the very same article as someone else.  On a slight sideote I've used Iwriter several times to create sites I made using my Review Formula method.

The Bad Stuff

Honestly, there is not much I dislike with the service.  But, for my Iwriter review  did uncover something that I am not fond of.  I’ve noticed if I select the “any writer” to write my articles that I reject about 1 in every 6 due to poor grammar or just poor writing. 

I’ll be the first to admit that my grammar is terrible but it’s still readable.  Some of the poor article’s I’ve had written for me contained several mistakes in the first paragraph and I’ve had to reject them. 

Again, it still turned out fine because after I rejected the articles they went back out to the writers queue and another writer stepped in and made me happy.  But, to get around this I typically select the middle option or select to only allow their best writers to write for me now. 

The small extra fee is worth it because it saves me time and I’ve never rejected a 5 star writer, yet.

That’s it on the bad.

Conclusion Of This Iwriter Review and Final Thoughts

I really love this service.  It’s free to join and it’s not expensive to get fresh content created for your sites on a cheap budget.  You can check them out here at Iwriter.

The time savings combined with the easy to use system is well worth it.

Do you have any experience with Iwriter?  Love them, hate them have another service you really enjoy? 

Give me your thoughts below.  Let me know what you think and even post your own Iwriter review.  How do you like it?

Fast Way To Write Articles For Content Or Link Building

create articles fastIt seems like every week I get an email, forum post, PM or Facebook message about how much someone hates to write or is simply having trouble trying to figure out what to write about.

I am going to show you something powerful that allows me to get more done in the least amount of time.  Let’s face it, I’m busy, you're busy and we always need content right?

If you don’t want to pay for someone to write for you and you’re working on content creation for your site or simply trying to get more articles published so build more backlinks to your website then this blog post is for you!

 

You Really Can Create 30-40 Articles In Just A Few Hours

It all starts with research.  Now, there are 2 ways to do this so pay attention to the first way and then the second way I’m going to show you.

1st we need topics and we need them in bulk so we can do this as fast as possible.

 

Step #1

 

Way #1.  Load up the Google Keyword Tool and type in your niche keywords.

Next, find any keyword phrases that are question oriented.  (i.e. “How do I saw wood with a chainsaw?”, “Best way to saw down a large tree?”) 

Keep in mind the Google Keyword Tool will not add the question marks at the end so you’ll need to read through each one to determine if it’s a question or not. 

Save the selected keywords to a CSV or word file as you find them.  This will become your list of topics to write about.

 

Alternative Step 1 – The Easiest Way To Research Your Topic

 

Way #2.  Grab a free copy of Market Samurai.

Next, put in the keyword phrase (use the primary keyword phrase for your niche).

When you get to the screen that asks for the keyword phrase length put in minimum of 4.

What this will allow you to do is pull up only keyword phrases for 4 or more words put together (long tailed keywords).

These phrases usually have low competition and many are question oriented.  When you go into the keyword analysis area simply export the data to a CSV file, remove any keywords that are not relevant to your niche and save your work.

You now have a list of topics to write about in just a couple of minutes.

 

Step #2

 

Next, create a folder on your computer called “Your Niche” Articles.  Make sure to replace “Your Niche” with either your website URL or your actually keywords.

Then, create a Word Doc or Open Office if you don’t have Word.  As the title of the Document simply paste in your first long tailed keyword phrase from your research and SAVE your work.

Do this for every single keyword phrase up to about 50 keyword phrases max.

Next, create a folder with the “Your Niche” Articles folder called “DONE” or something like that.

 

Step #3

 

Turn off your cell phone, Facebook, close out of your email account, shut off the T.V., don’t check your commissions for a little while and even ask you family for a couple hours of uninterrupted time.

Basically, this will become focus time and a time where you’re going to just crank out content.

Next, go through each document and answer the questions in full.  For articles that will go into article directories you’ll need 300+ words in each.  For content for your sites you’ll need at least 150+ words.  If you’re writing content for your site, the more the better, but 150 words is the bare minimum.  If you have awesome typing skills you might even be able to blow these numbers away.

Finally, drag and drop each completed article into the "DONE" folder.  When you're done you'll be left with a brand new folder of new content!

Take a small break every 10 or articles you’ve typed to gather yourself.  I can usually type a full article this way in 7 minutes or so for the 300 word articles and less for the 150s.  Sometimes it takes slightly less and sometimes slightly longer and I am a horrible typist. 

This saves time and money and we all know we can use more of both.

Also on writing like this something like Dragon Naturally Speaking (not an affiliate link) would work well.  I have always found Dragon works best for small projects like this and not as well for the bigger projects.  However, you may be different than I and have different results with using a tool like that.

This can also be easily outsourced.  Simply find the topics and give the topics to your writer if you don't want to type these up yourself.

So, that’s it!

Disturbing Facts About Free Article Directories Most People Will Never Know

One of the things I’ve been a big supporter over the last few years is article marketing.  I use articles for traffic and to get my websites ranked in the search engines all the time.  In fact, it’s probably my favorite way to build traffic.  Link building will be the life blood of your websites getting ranked in the search engines.  The free article directories I use mainly for LINK BUILDING purposes only.

#1.  ADS – and More Ads – The free article directories have ads all over the place.  Go watch this article video I shot a few days ago about this it’s pretty bad.  So because they have so many ads you’ll get a problem that I mention as bullet number 2.

#2.  LOW CTR – Low click-through rate.  Because there is so much page leak going on on the free article directories the majority of the visitors to your article will never even visit your site.  In fact, in my experience I get under 20% of the click-throughs from traffic from the free article directories – (ouch).

#3.  Not Enough Link Building – The free article directories do not build links to all of their categories.  This often leads to few links coming into the categories at the directory.  Sure their home pages have thousands of links coming in, but the categories do not.  This means that the high page rank of just their home page won’t end up doing much for you.

#4.  Distractions – Free article directories are masters of distractions.  If you missed the video the first time let me show you how they are distracting the visitors away from your site.

 

So by watching that video you can see why I only want to use the free article directories for link building only.  They are great for that.

Over the last couple a months I decided I wanted to have an article directory built that isn’t just for link building though.  What I wanted to build was an article directory that can get you The ULTIMATE CLICK-THOUGH and provide link building at the same time.
