Social Monkee Review – Backlinks That Google Loves?

by Tasos


Aug 1, 2015


I’m filming the last part. The finish line (Feb 02). New office setup (April).


A sophisticated 7D strategy that works both for hiring affiliates and becoming an affiliate for other brands.

My approach takes a new angle, it requires 2 critical steps before any initial action.

For hiring affiliates, we will use a never-seen type of contract that might even shock some people, and for becoming affiliates for other brands, we will demand a certain type of guarantee and a new – revolutionary way of tracking and invoicing.

Plus, much much more.

Something had to be done, as the industry is falling down.

Stay tuned!

I was reading my review on OMG Machines and my eye stopped on the Social Monkee link building software that OMG were suggesting on their e-book.I researched and found the product on Clickbank.Although I do not trust these kind of software or solutions I thought to give it a go , just from curiosity.

But I would never actually put my website in such a jeopardy (especially now that I am getting rankings) , I never use software or other plugins for such purposes.I believe in the continuous creation of valuable content that people will find interesting and they will share.This is called natural link building and it is genuine , awesome and search engines love it.


Social Monkee Review


The product inside Clickbank appears as a powerful link building site with over 100 thousand members.When I entered their homepage I was not left amazed by their work.This site seems like someone designed it in a weekend or less.There is an introductory video that in which the producer is asking us if we have failed in building backlinks for our website spending hundreds of hours and if we want to get top rankings in the search engines.




They promise that they have the solution for us , an easy and quick one – Social Monkee v2 – The Features


♦ Build 25 Do Follow Backlinks (social bookmarking sites) to your pages and posts to boost your existing backlinks for better rankings and more traffic.

♦ It is very affordable and suitable only for serious entrepreneurs that want to sky rocket their businesses

♦ You can make commissions on referral upgrades , so that means not only better rankings but an additional making money opportunity

♦ All backlinks will come from different sites with different IP addresses , which means unique , quality backlinks

How It Works


You install a plugin in your internet browser , firefox or google chrome.You check the URL , title and description , the category then you preview and submit.They even took it one step further and they created some spinning content and backlink indexing solutions for us.The Best Spinner , the Spinner Rewriter and the Backlinks Indexer.

How Much Does It Cost?


The speaker compares this product that has a long term full life potential with a cappuccino he had the other day on the train station in Basel of Switzerland.He paid more than $8 for a coffee he did not enjoy at all.Social Monkee cost just $7 , what is that price when it can bring such a huge success for your business? , or it can ruin everything you have accomplished so far?

And that’s it , the video ends and I am left there alone in the dark as usual.No explanation on what are these bookmarking sites in which we will be creating backlinks or anything else.Just a few testimonials , and the classical 60 day guarantee of Clickbank.The reputation of the network on refunds is pretty good , though.






Can $7 Make A Difference Or It Can Be Proved A Future Pain In The Head?


With such an awful presentation , no test or even a simple tutorial on how this product works I would definitely point you that this is a total scam and waste of money.I do not trust one page websites with so thin content.But I won’t jump into my conclusions , I will let you do that on your own



Online Reviews On Social Monkee


Frank from Stealth Secrets finds Zero Value on these Backlinks.Did you notice that I refer you to this review with my linked text?..This is a natural earned backlink from my website to the site I refer.This is how natural backlinks are built.Not through software or plugins.In a nutshell the author of that review mentions that in the surface it seems like a cheap solution that might help in the rankings.He continues analysing the software and finds that their platform is pligg websites.

These bookmarking sites have very little to no value for Google and search engines.If you decide to add links in that way not only you won’t get rankings but it can be the reason for de-indexing you for the position you already have in the SERPs.


Nathaniell is another blogger that finds Low quality Backlinks and outdated techniques.He uncovers a bunch of spam tactics that they follow , like Up-Sells and Upgrades , many following emails that they promote other people’s products.

♦ People in forums find Social Monkee useless , dangerous , risky and spammy.I enclose some screenshots from these forums and discussions.







Support? – This Is A Real Joke


I checked their online support service.To my surprise I redirected to an external site belonged to someone Colin Klinkert where I was bombarded with his other beautiful creations.He produces automation tools for everything.Articles , backlinks , submissions , urls , viral networks.You name it , he has the solution.Online support should have been offered directly on their website.Why should I visit an external site to get help?…It really does not make any sense.


Final Opinion Conclusion


I know that this product is awful , a scam and spam website.Just by arriving at their main page I knew it.But I will let you judge it , you can read the other reviews as well but I think it is unnecessary.Quality backlinks are coming natural , through time and through building killer or awesome content.


You do not have to be a special marketing mastermind or genius to create such content.Just write helpful and valuable articles.People will understand this value and they will share your articles through their social networks , on other genuine social bookmarking sites and you will get the backlinks you always dreamed of.Do not forget that with the latest Google’s Updates like Penguin and Panda these networks are nothing but Scam Alerts for the search engines algorithms.




I follow a training in Wealthy Affiliate community , and this is the reason for identifying so easily  such poor and awful productions.WA teaches you how to create quality content and how to drive targeted and organic traffic to your website.Sure , it takes time but it is worth fighting for.Besides you are a great fighter , but you need some motivation.





I am waiting for your comments and thoughts as always. How Much would you rate this Monkey?… Have any experience with it or with any other link-building software? Till next time.

    Dear Tasos,

    Many thanks for sharing this review on Social Monkee. Your review is one of the most comprehensive and I got some great insights. Thanks for sharing this valuable information to help people like me. Keep rocking and posting this type of informative reviews. All the very best! I will come back to your website to learn more information.

    Your Friend,

    • Tasos

      Thanks Paul, you’re very kind. I’m glad you found it helpful! All the best

    Thanks for this content Tasos, You don’t know how much you have save me. $7 is nothing but building bad link to my site will make me lose alot of time and money.

    Have been building natural backlink to my site and if i suddenly lost it, that will be a great lost.

    Thanks for this

    • Tasos

      Welcome Femstic, you are very kind. I am so glad you found the article helpful.

      Yes, keep on building links naturally, ethically, and you have nothing to fear. The sky is the limit. Programs like this one never help. That kind of backlinks might hurt any site. But even if you happen to use such a program, natural links that earned before can’t be lost just like that.

      Thank you for letting me know. Good luck with your sites!

    This type of software could trigger concerns from one’s AdSense account. If AdSense is a source of income, then a review of the AdSense policies would be well worth the time. The software could be harmless, in and of itself, however, if AdSense generates a full time income, as it does for some, it may be best to avoid this software. As the old adage says, when in doubt, throw it out.
    I agree that it’s really not worth the risk. Especially, as you say, if your site is starting to get traffic and show some potential. Natural traffic from interesting content and user interaction through comments goes a long way.
    Thanks for the review and the warning.

    • Tasos

      Welcome bioelectrobot , thank you for your input in the Adsense policies and your mentions.I agree that this kind of software are always suspicious and could be proved harmful.As you say , if there are doubts then do not use it.This is what I do always , I use programs and products that are proved worthy , I am not a fan of random solutions that may look fancy or cheap.

      Natural and organic traffic is what matters most for every website.Visitors that are interested in what you have to offer.

      Thank you for this visit and for sharing your experience with Adsense and your insights.All my best.

    Hey Tasos

    I see what you mean when you say you think social monkeys website was constructed in a day!

    You would have thought if it was such a great product that the creator would have put a little more effort than that into the website.

    However if he is selling his service at a measley $7.00 then you can justify why his web site looks like it lacks funding.

    As for back linking do you not think paying for a service similar to social monkey be worth while?

    • Tasos

      Welcome to my blog Jack.Indeed this is a very poor production which is offering “bad” backlinks generated from their own “low quality” network.I would not trust these resources in any case.

      All the authoritative websites (like WA , MOZ , Search Engine Land … to name a few) teach to create backlinks in a natural way that comes through quality content , social shares , mentions and engagement.No one is talking about paying a service for such links.I would not pay for that.Moreover I believe it is not so “legal”.

      Thank you for visiting and for participating in the comments.

  7. Edy

    Hi Tasos!
    Social Monkey really looks like a mediocre product that promise quality backlinks. When I look at the price of $7, this already indicates a bad sign. Too cheap to be true. I would never land my credit card information on this type of gimmicks.

    The service should be out-dated as Google will not weight backlinks as much as it used to be. But it is still important though. I know only two ways to find quality backlinks:
    1. Write good and wicked content regularly.
    2. Go take some ideas from authority sites, then compliment them through email about their contribution for our content creation. This will hopefully attract them linking to our sites. But it takes effort and time.

    Anyway, thanks for uncovering this crazy Monkey system that only claims banana promise which doesn’t work anymore.

    • Tasos

      Great points Edy and you made me laugh with your last sentence.Banana promises is exactly what this Monkey does.Yes , that very low price is a bad sign right from the beginning.The layout of their website is outdated and does not look professional.Personally , I am afraid to get my website progress in danger and lose rankings.That private networks these companies use to create and send backlinks are not valuable resources at all.Additionally there were many complaints from other bloggers.No one was satisfied with that Monkey system.

      Consistent unique content is the A and Z in website development.And your second statement on the authority sites is very important.We should always read and get inspiration from these sites.It will take time to build a relationship with them but this is what makes this process beautiful.

      If you had built a website and let’s say in one month period you were getting tons of traffic that would not be exciting at all.It is consistency and hard work that make the difference.Good things come to those who wait and take action as well.

      Thank you for visiting my blog and for your excellent arguments.

  8. Matt

    Hey I totally agree with what you said in the beginning. I am a firm believer of creating valuable quality content and organically growing your website to get it ranked.

    I agree that they seem very sketchy and try to sell you on empty hopes and dreams in order to get your money.

    Using something like this to sort of “cheat” your way to the top of google will probably backfire in the end and if Google catches it, then your site will lose all trust and credibility and probably tank in the rankings.

    Thanks for the share and shedding light on this company!

    • Tasos

      Exactly Matt , why to jeopardise your website rankings for things that don’t matter much any way?…Recently I watched another webinar of Jay Neill from Wealthy Affiliate where he made some tests using a live tool showing us how “his post” with only 2 backlinks stay in the first page of Google SERPs and competing giants that their posts had over 200 backlinks.A strong signal that backlinks are not worthy so much.

      Many online complaints on this Monkee program from numerous bloggers.

      I agree with you , only quality content and focus on the visitors.Consistent work and engagement.This is the future of SEO I believe.

      Thank you for visiting my blog and for your participation.
