Link Luv Post Builder

Link Luv Post Builder is the first in a series of content building applications I’m developing. It is now available for purchase. Read more to see what it can do for your niche and trend blogging efforts.

What is Link Luv Post Builder?

Link Luv Post Builder


This program is designed to read a variety of RSS feeds, such as Google Blog Search and many news site feeds, and help you build a “link luv” aka speedlinking post from this information. All you have to do is give it your keyword and it will find the matching blog posts and news articles.


Link Luv Post Builder - Keyword and Feed Selection


You then check off the articles you want to include or have the program randomly select some for you.


Link Luv Post Builder - Selecting Links


Next, you click on the Generate Post button and your article template appears below in both raw HTML and Web Preview formats.


Link Luv Post Builder - Generated Article


You can then copy the HTML code and paste it directly into the WordPress HTML editor or into any other editor. Or, you can select and drag and drop from the Web Preview panel into the WordPress Visual editor, Windows Live Writer or just about any other editor, web or desktop, that accepts drag and drop content.

Want to create a new post? Just uncheck your selected links and pick some more.

You can also save the links for your keyword to disk and reload them later if you want to do so.

Lastly, you can edit the feed sources if you wish on the Feed Sources tab. These feeds are in XML format and it’s relatively easy to add new feeds simply by adding a line for the feed you wish to add. If you aren’t sure, just ask and I’ll be glad to help you out.

Link Luv Post Builder runs under and has been tested with Windows XP and Windows Vista.

Why Link Luv Post Builder?

Link Luv Post Builder can help out your blogging efforts in a number of ways.

1. It is difficult to put together good posts for link cluster blogs over the long term. Link Luv Post Builder makes it easy for you to create keyword targeted speedlinking posts. Plus, since it includes links to authority sites such as CNN or ESPN, it can give your supporting blogs more legitimacy in the eyes of the search engines.

2. Who doesn’t get writers block from time to time? If you need to write a post for your flagship blog and are short on ideas, Link Luv Post Builder can help you put together a quick speedlinking post or perhaps spark some ideas for a full blown original post of your own.

3. If you’re trying out trend blogging, the blogging method of following trends in the news, Link Luv Post Builder can help you bring in links related to the most recent news events.

4. Link Luv Post Builder can help you get links through trackbacks. When you have WordPress setup to do this, when you post a link to another site, it will create a trackback comment on the blog who’s link you included in your post. Of course, this is subject to the blog owner’s approval of your trackback so make sure your content is of value.

IMPORTANT: Don’t use this software to splog or spam! Make sure you edit the post to include your own content before and after the links and even in between the links. Take the time to visit the sites in question, particularly other blogs, so that you understand what their article was talking about. I strongly recommend only using this program as a writing and research aid to help you put together quick speedlink posts and that your blog also contains other meaningful content.

How To Buy Link Luv Post Builder

Link Luv Post Builder is $27 USD. This price includes support and access to updates. You can pay via PayPal using the button below. After paying you will be redirected to your download link immediately.

 

 

If you have any payment problems or problems with the installation or just questions about the program, feel free to email me at support - the ‘at’ sign - optempo.com.

 

If you want to try it before you buy it, you can download the demo version of Link Luv Post Builder. The demo version does not allow saving of list of links or editing the feed sources. It also only allows you to generate 3 posts or link searches per run of the program.


Why the Low Price?

One of the frustrations I’ve had with the online software market, and I’d guess others have as well, is that most blogging software applications start at about $47 with the majority going for prices like $97, $147, $197 or more. A program that is similar to Link Luv Post Builder that has less functionality sells for $67 for a lite version. Why is the price so high for what, at the core, are very simple utility applications?

The answer is overhead.

The largest part of this overhead is that these programs are sold through affiliate marketing operations. This insures more sales but it also insures a higher price for the program. Affiliates and brokerage companies like ClickBank make more on the sale of the product than does the original developer or promoter. This effectively doubles or triples the price of the software.

What I’m doing is cutting out the middlemen and passing the savings on to you. Now, I could have gone the ClickBank route and sold this program, Link Luv Post Builder, for $67 or even $97. I could have setup a cheesy landing page complete with Internet Marketing cliches. Instead of making you pay for all that and then you trying to finagle a ’self-buy’ refund from ClickBank, I’m passing the savings directly to you when you purchase.

Oh, and while there is no affiliate program for Link Luv Post Builder at this time I am offering a bonus for anyone who writes a good review for it on their blog and links to this post. The bonus is a big package of PLR articles and mini-web site templates. Just make sure that you trackback to this post or use my contact form to let me know so that I can tell you how to download it.

Darn it Frank. I just bought Utility Poster. Your software sounds better and cost less. Plus I like to support fellow BU members. Maybe I’ll see if I can return Utility Poster and give it a shot. Great idea, I’m sure you’ll sell a lot. Emma

Frank,

I knew there was a reason why I hadn’t bought a comment posting program. This will help with that, save me tons of mtime on my weekly Trip Around the Blogosphere post, help me find new material…

…the list goes on and on. I am going to purchase right after I post and you can expect a recommendation on my blog after I play with it for a few days.

With the overall usefulness of this software, you could be charging a lot more.

Thanks again,
Sara

Any chance of making it proxy-aware, so those behind restrictive firewalls can still use it? The demo version claims to run the searches but never returns any results.

Comment by jfc
2008-05-16 06:11:33

Hi Robert,

Technically, it should be going through whatever version of IE you have installed on your system, using its settings. Can you get to the feed addresses using IE?

Comment by Robert
2008-05-16 06:57:09

Yep. Ordinary browsing is fine, and I temporarily disabled the local machine firewall service, so it must be failing at the outbound proxy somehow. Is it possibly using a non-80 port? I know certain ports outbound are blocked (23,3389, probably a few others) but telnet, FTP and web are all fine.

Comment by jfc
2008-05-16 07:35:10

Thanks Robert,

It should be using port 80 from what I understand. I’ll do some checking and see if there is something else going on that might cause it to get blocked.

Crap Frank. I have to echo what Emma started this off saying. I would have gladly purchased this over Utility Poster. Your timing sucks. I tried out the demo and it’s pretty slick. I decided to go ahead and support your efforts and made the purchase. Heck I suppose there is no harm in using both to create a blog post, huh?

Thanks Splork,

Sorry, I didn’t know about Utility Poster until I saw your post about it a week or so ago. At that point I was trying to decide if I was going to go the ClickBank route or the DIY route with Link Luv Post Builder. I decided to go the low key DIY route with it for now.

Hi Todd,

I may try to develop some software using Mono which would allow me to build cross-platform applications. The only problem is I don’t have a Mac or Linux system to test on.

Another option is to go 100% web based using either ASP.NET or PHP. The problem there is that all of the processing load is placed on the server and hosting companies don’t care for that too much.

Hi Frank,

I’ve downloaded the demo version and it’s bringing up plenty of links to relevant posts. Hope though you can help me with advice about how best to use the links.

Say I have a surfing blog and create a category called “Surfing News”. I find four or five relevant links (using the full version) that fit my news category. Would I then create a new post called something like “Today’s surfing news” and simply paste in the links and content snippets? Then next day (or a couple of days later) do the same, ie create another post headed “Today’s surfing news” and paste from LLPB? (I’m using WordPress, so not sure if it’s possible to create multiple posts with the same title).

When you day you strongly recommend using the program as a writing and research aid, would the above usage be acceptable provided there was plenty of other, original content? Or should one add some original content before/after the links even if trackbacks are not enabled?

Many thanks,

Scotch

Comment by jfc
2008-05-19 21:28:16

Hi Scotch,

What you don’t want to do is create post after post with just the links and excerpts and none of your own content. You’ll want to at least include a good lead in paragraph and closing paragraph. If you don’t do this you’ll look like a scraper and you don’t want that.

Also remember that you don’t want the quoted material to account for more than 30% of the total text in the post. If it’s more than that the chance that your post will be flagged for duplicate content increases. I recommend breaking it up between quoted blocks and just links to get the most effective mix.

I’ll try to do another article on this in the next few days.

Hi Frank. I THINK I understand what this is and how to use it, but I’ve been awake a LOOOONG time, so I look forward to that 2nd article and looking everything over with a clear head, but it looks like a very powerful way to be in the right place at the right time with your content.

Comment by jfc
2008-05-21 12:59:34

Hi Dave,

If you look at my Tang Bomb article it was created by using the tool. I pulled in related articles and wrote my own original content based on it.

Of course, another way to use it is just as a straight up linking article. I’ll cover a bit more in a follow-up article.

Hi Frank. Been sometime since I came here. Been sometimes since I blogged too! I got sort of disillusioned for a little while and was on the verge of selling off my blog but then had a change of heart. Made peace with myself now and I have a clearer direction between blogging and making money online, so I have given the blog a revival. LOL.

This sure is one tool that niche bloggers can use. Can it be used to write content for BANS sites too?

Comment by jfc
2008-05-23 11:15:23

Hi Costa,

Sometimes it’s good to take some time off to work on other projects or to just refresh. I didn’t post a lot for a few months while I built up some other sites.

I suppose you could use it to do some research on products for BANS site blurbs although it’s really better at trend following and link building.

I sure cannot wait to start making money to get this one.

Frank, on the Tang Bomb article did you rewrite the whole article? I do not see any links pointing to credit the source. Do you have a post where you have use just the original content from Link Luv where you are getting the trackbacks? Or are you only using this for content material?

If it is for Link Luv, would you not want to include source?

Guess I am confused (go figure!) as to how to get the most value from this. I looked for a follow up post but could not find it.

I’ll Be Back!

Comment by jfc
2008-05-26 10:40:06

Hi Denise,

There are three basic ways I use this tool.

First, you can use it to research other blogs in your niche to put together a basic speedlinking post. This can be an effective way to get others to link to your niche blog, particularly if they’re doing more social blogs. Of course, this kind of post is to build links, not capture search traffic.

The second method is to research news articles to build your own article on a hot topic. This is what I did with the Tang Bomb article. I just pulled in news sources and wrote my own aggregated article. This is what local news writers for TV and newspapers often do.

The third is to add more legitimacy to a link cluster blog. It looks suspicious for you to link to the same blogs over and over again from a cluster site. However, if you include links to recognized authority sites, such as news sites or Wikipedia, this makes your cluster blog look more legit. It’s the same principle as including other sites in your Bookmarking Demon runs.

Comment by Houseboat Rentals
2008-05-27 20:42:30

Do you have a post on speedlinking? I am not sure what that phrase means.

(Comments wont nest below this level)
Comment by jfc
2008-05-27 20:50:09

Hi Denise,

It’s just a post with several links to other blogs with the intention of, hopefully, exchanging links and boosting referral traffic. I did them when I was kicking off this blog but I stopped doing them back in November. They’re in the category Some Links.

Yes, I do need to create a landing page where I can have testimonials that say that you can make $1000 a day with this software. I also didn’t use any yellow highlighting or Camtasia videos or even a faux software box. You can tell I’m not an experienced digital products marketer. :)

Comment by jfc
2008-05-29 19:52:07

Hi CBM,

I don’t know of one that will run on a Mac at this point. I’ve been looking into Mono, which is a cross-platform .NET software development tool, but it has some limitations that I’ll have to understand more completely before I develop desktop apps using it.

I’m also considering doing web based applications like this that would be usable on PC, Mac and Linux but I’ve got to find the right hosting and come up with a good sales plan for that.

Hey Frank,

I actually just purchased this and my initial impressions are good. I actually was using trackboost (which is $197) and this is a much cheaper version of this. The one big difference is that the interface isn’t as slick but at nearly $170 cheaper, it is something I can live with.

Real quickly, does this software offer a trackback solution or do you have to do it all manually?

I will definitely be reviewing this shortly….

Comment by jfc
2008-05-30 15:18:47

Hi Leo,

If there are some improvements you would like to see in the user interface I would like to hear about them. That would give me some ideas to use to do further improvements.

The trackbacks are manual at this point. I’m going to be examining some ways to add this functionality in the future.

The one thing that I really like with Trackboost that would be on my link luv wishlist would be the ability to have the option to “no follow” the links. Right now, as it stands, I have to edit the html to have this work and it is almost too much work to worry about it.

Link Luv Post Builder is a great program. One of the things I find it great for is the sheer number of spam postings targetting some of the phrases I am looking for. :) It’s only an issue because some of them are slightly further out there. Higher trafficked search terms have more actual content to be found, of course.

I added a comment but something didn’t work and I got back to the empty comment page. Usually the comment should show with a note that it awaits moderation.

Anyway at the risk of repeating myself, sorry if that is the case, I think that the software is very useful but I wonder if there is any chance it would work on Mac. In the article it mentions only Windows XP and Vista.

Comment by jfc
2009-04-07 09:04:12

Hi Vance,

Sometimes the combination of this theme and the threading plugin don’t work quite right and you get a blank page. I deleted your duplicate comment.

The program is XP and Vista only. I’m considering doing a Mac/Linux version using the Mono Project platform but that’s still in the future. One thing I recommend for Internet Marketing Mac users is to buy a cheap desktop PC and hook it into their home network and access it using the Remote Desktop program. This will allow you to use IM programs, which are usually PC/Windows only, while freeing up your Mac for other tasks.
