Product Owner: Peter Garety
Advertised Price: $29.95-$49.95
What Is It?
P1 RankMe is a WordPress plugin that automatically builds backlinks to your website from a network of unknown websites.
Getting low quality backlinks to your website can damage your website rank, and thus business earnings, over time. I do not do any link building, and recommend you do the same.
Before You Buy
Peter Garety previously launched a plugin called the P1 Traffic Machine that everyone had a conniption fit about a while back, but now seem to have completely forgotten about. It was a similar style of plugin, advertised as “completely automated”, making online business easy and it would skyrocket you earnings by creating automatically soloed websites.
Well, I a few months later I’m ranked #2 for the the term “P1 Traffic Machine Review”, and no one seems to care enough to stop by and tell me I’m wrong.
I suspect a similar thing will happen with P1 RankMe. It launched recently, so expect uber amounts of hype over the next few days, and then crickets.
Han Fan, YouTube’s most famous shill review creator has already created six videos about it.
One user has already created a $1,000,000 bonus offer. lol. Be sure to pick that one up! (sarcasm)
What I Liked
As much as I hate backlinking because it destroyed one of my previous websites (1,000 visits per day to under 100), I wonder if this plugin does work temporarily.
I did a search for P1 RankMe Reviews, and all of page 1 was pure crap. I mean, just look at this: TWO of the top 10 results are from the same website! To make matters worse, 1 page is empty, and 1 page is a 404.
Hurry up and do your job Google!
Also, when I got started in online marketing, I did use various backlinking techniques like Social Monkee, BMR, Linkvana, and some auto social bookmarking sites. So, I know what a pain in the butt it can be to set up all those social profiles, create custom descriptions and tweak the endless amount of settings. The way this plugin is set up, it does sound pretty easy to use.
What I Didn’t Like
Automatic Backlinking Software
I’m just going to come out and say it: I will never use automatically backlinking software, and believe that anyone who does use it is killing their long term business prospects.
Google catches up with everyone.
If you honestly believe that there is a software you can plug into your website to make you rank above everyone else, then you still have a lot to learn about online marketing my friend.
Perhaps churn and burn marketing is your style though. Build a quick website, link the hell out of it, rank it for a week, promote some crappy Clickbank products, and do it again after Google slaps it.
If that’s the case, I’m not sure this review will be very convincing for you. If you have a legitimate website and are just concerned that you are not ranking as well as you think you should, there are other ways to gain rank that do not involve installing this junk on your site.
No One Buying It?
I checked out some of the initial reviews on the Warrior forum, and from what I can tell, no one is actually buying the software, but everyone wants to know if it works!
In fact, someone wrote up a whole sales pitch, saying how well it works and how it’s going to boost your rank so much…then forgot to respond to the ONE inquiry on his sales page.
Secret PBN Is Not-So-Secret
Supposedly the links are coming from a secret PBN that cannot be exposed in order to keep it a secret.
Well, it’s not going to stay secret for long. To find out which sites are in the PBN, just buy P1 RankMe, then check Google Webmaster tools to see which websites link to you. Duh. I don’t get why Garety is making this out to be like he’s protecting the users.
We also are not told what anchor text is used (to prevent over optimization or keyword stuffing), when the links are created (to prevent unnatural linking warnings), or many other factors that come into play when building backlinks.
We’re just supposed to trust that the software works and that all the back end stuff is being taken care of properly. No thanks!
BTW, in case you forgot, using PBNs is playing with fire.
One Time Fee Is A Sign Of Trouble
If this is a private network of websites, there has to be server costs and other maintenance fees associated with running the network.
However, the plugin is a one time fee, and we are able to build backlinks for life.
What this spells out to me is that you need more customers coming in to pay for costs. But as hype dies down and fewer customers come in, costs starts to exceed profits, and it’s time for the creator to move on to the next product.
BTW, I think it’s total BS that he’s listed the “regular price” of the plugin as $800-$1500. When was the last time you paid more than $300 for a WordPress plugin?
I would never use something like P1 RankMe on a website I planned to keep around for more than a few months. I also don’t see the value in creating trashy throw-away sites to earn a few bucks then disappear.
If you are spending all this time and money trying to break the rules, why not spend that same energy on building a real business that people can trust?
The #1 reason people don’t rank is because they simply haven’t been working hard enough on their business. This includes creating enough content, networking with the right people on social media, and actually creating content that people want to read.
There’s no easy formula to rank or make money online. But the more you search for that formula, the more you get suckered into purchasing automatic ranking party tricks like P1 RankMe.
What are your thoughts? Have you had any long term success with automatically generating backlinks?
