Anyone else use social monkee and take a hit from Penguin?
It used to be good many years ago, right around the time you created this faq, but since then there has been many big updates by Google to their algorithms and these method is no longer a recommended method or thing to do to get better rankings with. That site builds social bookmarking backlinks for you on auto pilot but many of those sites aren't exactly any good or high authority social bookmarking sites and wont really count for much for your link profile. Although, that said, I do believe they operate a little differently today than how they used to. They say now that they'll build you 25+ high authority backlinks a day using a mix of different keywords and URLs and it's done using some very complex methods. That's great on the face of it, but more often than not, these complex link building services are discovered by Google. It's much smarter at being able to detect what's a real naturally placed backlink and what's been placed by a machine or some service.
You're much better off building them yourself by hand! It isn't and doesn't need to be hard, one only needs to follow some simple rules and you can build the same if not higher quality backlinks by hand yourself that wont get detected as spam and wont get you a penalty. Just check out some of the great link building services for sale in the SEOClerks Marketplace. From manual blog comments to PBNs (Private Blog Networks), manual directory submission to Web 2.0 and site link sales. You're much better off buying these services here than you are anything like that because these are built manually by hand by a real person and not by a machine and Google prefers that!

I have never used social monkee. I was going to try tonight but apparently the site is down.
I am aware of Social Monkee but I haven’t gone inside it. The impression I got based on the discussions in this forum is that the Social Monkee can help you build your backlinks. But we really do not know if that is effective for your site because there is the saying that 10 quality backlinks is much better than having100 ordinary backlinks. I am not saying that Social Monkee cannot give your site quality backlinks but it may just be construed as a spamming site by search engines.
