Introduction to Link Emperor

Link Emperor is a link building tool that allows you to manage your SEO campaigns, create quality links and even build tiered linking structures.

Link Emperor Prices

You get an allocated number of credits per month that are used to build links. You can spend your credits how you wish on a huge range of link types.

Getting Started With Link Emperor

I’m going to first show you the back end of a test campaign very quickly.

On the main interface you will see:

  • All the URL’s it picked up
  • All the keywords targeted by those URL’s
  • The keyword search volume
  • Current Google rank
  • Page score

Link Emperor Overview

You can actually use this information to help improve your onsite optimisation to steal quick win ranking boosts.

But first, let me show you how to start your own campaign!

Creating a New Campaign

Say you want to promote a specific set of URL’s for a niche. You need to set up a campaign and Link Emperor makes it really easy to do.

Link Emperor New Campaign

Just click on New and and fill in the details such as campaign name, country, description, category and so on. I’m going to set one up about my post of how to start a blog and leave the rest of the options at default.

You can also give your clients access so they can monitor rankings etc with a designated username and password.

After all that’s done, click Add Campaign.

Link Emperor Campaigns

As you can see our campaign is added on top and if you tick the box next to it, more options will come up that you are able to change.

The next step you should do is to add Google Analytics. You really should do this is because the tool fetches the Analytic’s data which will help you make keyword decisions.

To add your Google Analytics, click Account then the External Linked Accounts tab and add your account.

If you don’t have Google Analytics, Clicky works as well.

Now we have to add additional information. Click on the campaign and go to the Sites tab to add the domains & URL’s we want to build links to.

Add sites

Enter a name for the site reference and the complete domain URL including http:// Make sure to select the Analytics ID you wish to connect to.

Campaign Setup

As for target URLS, you can use Google Analytics to grab them for you or uncheck the box to add specific URLs. I’m going to untick the box and click Add site.

Now let’s add our targets.

  1. Enter URL
  2. Enter dollar value
  3. Add keywords

Let me explain quickly what dollar value is.

Dollar value is a measurement for campaign bids. If your campaign has a $1 value per visit and a separate campaign has a $2 value, then the $2 value campaign will have two times as many links built to it.

I’m going to leave mine blank since I don’t need to worry about it for the test campaign. Then enter the keywords and if you want the system to include additional keywords the URL ranks for on the internet, check the box and click Add.

This will help increase your rank for keywords that need a small boost.

One more thing I’m going to do is go back to the Target tab and add my Youtube video tutorial URL.

Target Analysis

Now that you’ve entered all your target campaign information, let’s look at what some of the terms mean.

Link Emperor Target Analysis Review

Click on one of the campaigns we created to see the list of keywords we added, the Google ranking for the keywords, search volume, visits per URL and on page score.

Page score can be anywhere from 0, 1 or 2.5.

The breakdown of scores goes like this:

  • 0: the particular keyword is not found on the page
  • 1: the keyword is found on the page
  • 2.5: the keyword is found in the title

onpage seo analysis

Not only does system tell you the score, it also helps you optimize it.

Click on SEO Trouble Spots tab where they have a list of suggestions and changes that you can do to increase the score.

Very helpful!

If you want, make the recommended changes and and select reinspect selected On-page SEO for it to update the page score.

Finding New Keywords

This is a great feature that helps you find new keywords related to your campaign post.

  1. Click New Report
  2. Fill in the details such as name, country and dollar value
  3. Do a quick search of other relevant websites and copy their URLs here.
  4. Copy and paste the URL’s
  5. Click Research Report

Finding New Keywords

I searched for the keywords “how to start a blog” and just grabbed various relevant sites off the search results.

You will see that the system came up with additional keywords that we can use.

Once again the report will show you the different keywords it came up with and the amount of traffic it gets. Select the keywords to add to your campaign list and click on Assign selected to Target.

Adding Articles

There are a couple options for adding articles which we need for the links we’re building.

Adding Articles

The first option is to generate articles. Click on the Article Tab and then select Generate Articles.

If you have an account with articlebuilder.net you can use that or do a database search of pre-written PLR articles. Let’s select those to see why this options is less than ideal.

Sample Generated Article

You can see they have pulled up an article for us but as you take a closer look, you’ll see that the problem is that it’s not unique enough.

A much better option is to add an article manually. If you don’t know how, check out my advanced spinning tutorial to create well spun articles that are unique and makes absolute sense.

This is very important! This is usually why most SEO campaigns fail and you need to learn how to properly spin an article so it passes human moderation.

Also remember to take note of the auto generation settings.

Select no so that Link Emperor doesn’t automatically generate the PLR articles for you if you don’t have any. That way you’ll avoid exposing your URL’s to the PLR auto content.

Link Building

Now onto link building!

To start building links first you need to tell Link Emperor which types of links to create. Change the tab to Link building and select Change Campaign Allocations.

link building setup

Make sure you choose to blast each campaign separately! This is so you don’t get links from two different campaigns which might not have relevant content to each other.

If you have more than one campaign setup you can choose how to divide up your credits amongst them.

Next let’s change the anchor text distribution settings. This will mix anchors up to prevent you from using too many exact match anchors which is a main cause of Penguin penaltys.

anchor text distribution

Move the slider and it will show you the percent randomization of your keywords.

For example I have it set to 16% to an exact match, 27% to a variance of the exact match and 57% to generic words. This will help stop you from getting hit from Penguin!

Now we can check the type of links we want to build. Under the Campaigns tab, select the link building tab and click on Customize Link building settings.

Link Type Selection

Use the sliders to allocate the number of links per type you want your campaign to have.

For this campaign, we’re going to reduce the amount of forum profiles, wiki submissions, blog comments, article submissions, platform submissions, video creations and social bookmarking.

But increase press release submissions and private posts.

Underneath the additional options, you can choose to not build links on adult/objectionable sites, to blast target and keywords together and for it to handle priorities for you.

Click save link building design to finish. But if you want to do tiered link building, move the red slider in the middle to get a new group of blue sliders called Buffer Tier.

link emperor tiered link building

The higher you move the red link slider, the buffer tier slider grows to a higher percentage.

The basics of tiered link building comes down to how many tiered links you have connected to your initial set of links. So under the Approx. Links per month column, it’s necessary that the blue number is larger than the total number in green.

Now we need to change our buffer tier to get this proportion right. Let’s increase the blog comments, articles, and have a medium amount of wiki, less forum profiles, more social bookmarks and that should create a nice structure there.

Don’t forget you can change the blasting and buffer amount!

You can choose which option you would like, create less and blast more or to create more tiered links and blast less.

Leaving it around the middle is a good starting point.

Start Your Campaign

Your campaign is now ready to rock and roll but before you start your campaign, go through and check you have set up-

  1. Targets
  2. Keywords to rank for
  3. Articles
  4. Link Building Settings
  5. Campaign Allocations

start campaign

After you’ve gone through and checked everything, check the box to select your campaign and click run selected. Go over to the credits tab to check your credit spending history and the links being built.

That’s all there is to it! Link Emperor is now running a fully automated link building campaign according to the link structure you have built.

You can check your updated rankings each week to keep up with your campaign’s progress including detailed reports of keywords, traffic and so on. The Link Emperor team will even take a quick look at your campaign before you start to make sure everything’s good to go if you get in touch with them!

I think Ultimate Demon and Link Emperor are moving in on SENukes territory fast.

Nice review Matt – I tell you, I’m loving your blog more each day…. I definitely will be featuring you in a blog post very soon.

One thing I noticed that Link Emperor seemed to be missing (unless I missed it!?) was the ability to add contextual links to other sites. Would you need to spin these manually into your articles or is there a feature for this hidden away somewhere?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi Alex,

That would be great thank you =D

Just spin the contextual links into the content you provide like in the spinning tutorial http://www.matthewwoodward.co.uk/tutorials/advanced-article-spinning-techniques-with-the-best-spinner/

Reply

Sterling Reply:

Hi Matthew, your video on spinning is the best I’ve seen yet. Thank you for sharing such a helpful resource.

So if you were to spin contextual links directly into article, would you have to turn off targets & keywords completely for a campaign in Link Emperor so you’re not double linking from an article?

Thank you sir!

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

Thanks for sticking around for an hour to watch it all!

Just remove money site links in the spin :)

Reply

Sterling Reply:

Thank you for the reply Matthew. Have you noticed whether Link Emperor drops the links in weird spots in the article when trying to be contextual? After spending so much time spinning “properly” as you teach in your video, it seems a shame if a random link placement makes reading awkward wherever it’s inserted. Or is it not really something search engines would notice?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

That is one of the drawbacks of the system, worth speaking with support though because it wouldn’t be hard to use a token to replace

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for that information Matthew…

Would you recommend link emperor for your money site or is it better for tier 1 sites/pages? .. and do you feel their blog networks are safe from G?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Yeah no problems for money site usage as you have control over the types of links that are built.

Reply

Em Reply:

Which type of usage is the right one for the money site Matt?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

What are your SEO goals and objectives for the money site?

Reply

6.15.2013

It looks impressive but are they going to generate the content as well? If this is the case – is it going to be human readable ?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Any content that is auto generated will never be human readable – thats why I stress how important it is to prepare your content properly. Regardless of what service/tool you use, if you don’t prepare the content properly – you might as well have not bothered.

I’ve had the Senator plan for a while now. Doing pretty nicely – Only annoying thing is the target value option is a bit broken as I have to manually do it for tons of keywords if I decide to import 100+ keywords.

Hi Matt,

Nice job as always. Is LE cloud based or do you have to install and run locally. Was looking to do a tiered campaign as you describe in your previous post – UD, GSA Ser, etc – but that does involve some extras like setting up proxies, throw away email addresses, captcha solvers and then you need to leave it running on your PC or VPS. Does Link Emperor do away with all this? Would love a solution that did not involve me dealing with proxies and having to run locally.

Thanks!

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

Its all cloud based theres nothing to download/install.

Yes Link Emperor removes all the requirements for software/proxies etc etc etc

Thanks Matt, great review.
There is basically one question in my mind: What is the quality of the links and is it worth the price in relation to for example Thor backlinking services or Niche Rank on the Warrior Forum?

I really appreciate your reports. Even for a Dutch guy very understandable.

Yeah, I do understand you very well. What I like most; you are straight forward, without the usual B.S. This is the way I want to learn stuff.

But my main question is not answered totally yet; what kind of links do you get back? Are they permanent? Are they from > PR1 sites? How many OBL’s?

Would you throw these links to your valuable sites as well?

I thank you in advance for your answer. I appreciate it.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Cheers :)

You get links from any type of site back, you can choose between forum profiles, blog comments, high pr blog netowrks, web 2.0s, bookmarks – whatever you want!

Yes they are permanent! For the most part the quality of these links is down to the content you provide

WARNING – Link Emperor just sent out a ton of articles with spintext still in title and body. So now there are horrible spammy looking links to site and my completely spun article is exposed.

I doubled checked the spin text in TBS and Spin Rewriter and it works properly, so bad bug in Link Emperor.

I contacted support requesting links removed. Will keep you posted.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Interesting – let us know how this goes!

Reply

Sterling Reply:

So it turned out that part of the problem was a spintax nesting error in my article that still allowed TBS to spin it but some vendors systems couldn’t. Not sure why some titles weren’t spun properly because it is a separate field and the title spintax was perfect.

Link Emperor support said that their lead developer is looking into adding some spintax checking which would be great as I’m used to being able to preview articles on senuke before starting campaign but there is no way to do that on LE.

Anyway, please feel free to remove my original comment so it doesn’t alarm your readers. My bad. :-)

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Thanks for the updates – I’ll leave the original comment though :)

Reply

Sterling Reply:

So it looks like LE has a bug in their spinner where they can’t spin blank words/phrases (using optional words as Matthew explains in his spinner tutorial). The LE spinner chokes and spits out spintax instead.

I explained that both TBS and Spin Rewriter have the option to insert blanks in their toolset and sent a screncap of Spin Rewriter handling it fine.

Here’s hoping they escalate to developers to fix.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Thanks for the feedback, hopefully they fix that up pretty quick!

Reply

Sterling Reply:

They rolled out a couple of fixes over 2 days and spinning is working properly now.

I must say that LE support is outstanding. They communicate well, deploy fixes very quickly, and their lead developer often jumps right in on the support tickets.

They plan on implementing a couple of features I requested (preview of unspun articles, and separate keyword lists for main/tiered sites). I’ve been very impressed with their level of support so far.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Thanks for the update!

Reply

Jonathan Colson Reply:

I actually sent an email off to them with a request.

The request was to add the option to see the spun article after uploading your own articles.

It would be really nice to have a button like The Best Spinner or Ultimate Demon to verify the spun content before submitting.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Did they get back to you?

Reply

Alex Reply:

They’ve got that functionality now, however it breaks often – for instance if you try to spin something like {;|:|.|…|!|,} it’ll throw the entire spinning procedure out.

Also, I’ve discovered through various chats to their support that they don’t “support” you spinning contextual links into the article, so that’s a bit of a nuisance.

(However, it still seems to work for now, thankfully. Although some obscure URLs such as those containing & and = can break the spinner – you need to be sure to take those out)

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Just replace them with the HTML escape code and you should be good to go!

Reply

Sterling Reply:

Hi Jonathan,

They did add the spun preview. It’s not intuitive. There is a pulldown when editing the article, and you change pulldown option from edit to preview. There you can keep spinning it and view different variations.

I did end up canceling my LE subscription after 2 months. Support has been very responsive, but still too dangerous with lots of crappy links, poor keyword priority handling, too many many deleted links, and no way to remove links without account login info like you can with UD & SeNuke.

Hey matt can you add the same articles to this websites or they need to be in a spintax format? Let´s Say I use my article based on my website keyword, and then want to submit this article to SenukeXCR and other softwares, the articles must be in spintax format? And it´s ok to use various softwares? Because this software you´re talking about has wiki sites so it has Senuke XCR

Great video matt. Think going to test out the $147 package on test site.

few questions.

1. If you where running say 1 campaign on the $147 package roughly how many manual spun articles would you need to add per month to get best results?

2. You showed in video how to add a article but how does the software add the actual anchor keyword links to them? Do you need to add links to the article or does system do it?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

HI Rob,

1) That depends on how you set the sliders/link distrubtion and the number of links created that require articles

2) It takes care of that

Reply

robert kirk Reply:

hey matt, thanks for reply

1. so does the system advise you how many articles your best to add depending on how you set the sliders?

2. so you dont need to add any anchor text links to spun articles at all? does it automatically spin anchors aswell as add them?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi

1) Nope – you need to work out how many times each of your spun article can be used (publish>generate & compare in TBS) then set your sliders accordingly. That will tell you how many links of each type you will get and then you’ll know if you have enough articles to cover it.

2) Yup

Reply

Robert Kirk Reply:

cool thanks for letting me know about that

been speaking with GodOfSeo over weekend, about LE, he said he wouldnt use private network posts on tier 1 would you agree?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

There is no right/wrong answer to that. It depends on the goals/objectives of the SEO campaign

Reply

robert kirk Reply:

hi matt, ok im now getting to grips with TBS, once I go into generate and compare then pick how many articles Im wanting from the main spun version, what sort of percentages should you be aiming for on each article? how many times would you use an article spun to level shown in your spinning tutorial for tier 1?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

If I’m seeing anything sort of 60-70% upwards its good to go!

To increase the quality of tier1 links, is it possible to get a number of unspun unique articles written (99cent articles for example) and use these instead of spun content?

You could do that but then if your using properly spun articles there isnt a difference

Matt, I didn’t see you scrape link target URLs or import a list of scraped targets at any point in that Link Emperor video tutorial. In your tiered link building tutorial videos you described scraping our own targets as “crucial to your success”. Why was no scraping or importing of link targets done in the Link Emperor tutorial? Is it not necessary with Link Emperor for some reason? If not, why?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

Link emperor is a service and all of that side of things is taken care of by link emperor vendors.

Its not possible to use your own targets.

Reply

Jason Reply:

Oh I see. Thank you very much Matt. Do you think it’s safe to assume that the Link Emperor vendors make sure that none of the link targets they are posting to are on de-indexed domains?

Reply

Tried the LE service trial on a new domain and I must say I am very impressed with everything so far. The customization and control are great.

Initially my account did not build links and I contacted their support, they fixed it the same day and added 10.000 credits to my account for the trouble. Mind you that this is a trial account.

They also did a free review of the campaign I set up and gave me some useful information that I could immediately put to use to improve my campaigns.

Support is excellent, links look good, no problem with submitting my own spun articles, highly customizable to tailor to your needs, and did I mention awesome support?

Thanks Matt. Could you please tell me one more thing? Why did you only give this service 4 stars? I think it deserves five stars

Not quite as much control as I would like, but not everyone needs that.

Link Emperor is a very very good tool IF you use it correctly? Matthew, listening to your video was very helpful!

Thanks,

Have you noticed they no longer rank for a branded search on their name, i.e. ‘link emperor’.

I’m getting them at number 60 or something. You are number 1 and I’m sitting at number 3 (in the UK). We have a bit of a difference of opinion on their services, but debate is healthy right? ;-)

That is interesting!

Have you looked at their homepage? There isn’t a single bit of index-able text content from what I can see which wont be helping

I heard that Google is destroying LE link system

Just sounds like your typical newbie placing blame for the penalty. Very rarely is it the actual tool at fault. As he doesnt provide any actual relevant details over and above wahh wahh wahh I got penalised you can’t determine the cause.

Interesting product, better than doing the donkey work yourself though in your opinion?

I love your blog Mat, and what really makes stand out to me (other than great content) is that you are the only English IM I have ever came across. Anyway, I have simple question for your regarding LE, is this considered black hat? Will it last for long term or do you think it’ll be hit in the next google algorithm update.? Thanks

Actually theres a few of us up in here :)

There is no such thing as white hat or black hat. If you build any type of link you violate webmaster tools, so its all ‘black hat’ in the end.

No one knows what Google will do next, thats why its a good idea not to be reliant on them.

Hey matt would you recommend indexing the links built through LE through one hour indexing instead of LE ?

Matthew Woodward Reply:

I don’t use LE for indexing at all
