This is really good stuff. I'll elaborate, but the TLDR is that they are upfront about what they're offering, and they deliver on it.

It's been ages since I've used a link service so I don't know if it's par for the course to be this well-organized with such nice reports, but I'm impressed just the same.

I received a review order of the Monthly Mix package, which included placements that were mostly on very high DA domains (80+, 90+, 90+), and some 40's, and one that's just below 20 but super relevant.

What really stands out here is the content. It's fantastic. This isn't just "toss up some really rough content because who cares, it's just for the link..." This is solid, thoughtful writing and it's obvious the team here took the time to read the articles on my site before linking to them, and to formulate relevant questions and answers.

The content is getting engagement from the communities on these platforms too, hundreds of views in some cases, other people hoping in to give their own answers, too - all of this leads to more juice flowing to my pages.

This is the type of link building that I usually do myself because I've had iffy experiences in the past with other vendors (Nothing crazy, just used cheap services and got even cheaper results, which lead to a "screw it, I'll just do it myself next time" type of thing.) This is a huge time saver, and I've found a couple new spots I can build on in the future, too. Having the log-ins provided for each site is nice.

It's great that someone is offering quality links that aren't going to tarnish your profile, at a price that allows them to put in the necessary effort to do it correctly without cutting corners. These are safe links, you aren't going to get an angry email from a confused webmaster or anything like that.

I'm confident that if I ran into any problems on future orders, they'd take care of it (as evidenced above.) That's worth the world for a long-term partnership, I don't want a link partner who is going to treat me like an adversary.

I spread these out, and it was a review copy so not the full 20 link package, and I mostly sent these to new articles to give them an initial boost. I wasn't really planning to have much to say about rankings from a small order like this, but I can say that the articles I pointed these links at have mostly landed on the front page for their main keywords already, faster than expected. This is a pretty strong domain, but these aren't all little rinky-dinky keywords, so I'm really happy with the results, but even without these early results, the quality is fantastic and the service is great.

I like this a lot!

Review​

Earlier when @Joozed offered a review copy, I resisted because I'm always on here and I felt it'd be right to let others get first dibs. But Joozed kept offering more and more so I eventually sent in a private message about testing the waters.

Turn Around Time

I sent in that message on September the 1st, sent in my details on the 2nd, and by October 3rd I had a report in my hands. It truly was a "Monthly Mix" in that I got a mix of links right at the month mark. That strikes me as important, especially as an agency buyer needing deliverables for clients.

Customer Experience​

The initial message exchange with Joozed was fast, to the point, but also warm and friendly. That's what I want as a busy person: someone who doesn't waste my time but still makes me feel appreciated and human. It's basic hospitality and if someone doesn't have time for friendliness, then that tells me exactly where their priorities are (my wallet instead of my satisfaction).

After that I sent in my details in the Invalley dashboard they use that prompts you for the information they need for the packages you order (or get a review for). It was very clear, and was basically business information, social media pages, things of that nature so they can flesh out profiles for you.

What I Received​

I'm not sure what other reviewers got, but I know I was given a more substantial review so I could gain more insight into the process and share it here. Part of my testing on that was a simple request of "Please don't include any press release links." They followed this direction perfectly.

Because I asked not to have press release links, I kind of played myself, but what I got was still great. It appears to be the full Monthly Mix of month 1, minus press release links and minus a couple links per category due to it being a review copy. That meant I got 3 Q&A links, 3 List Links, and 3 Brand Links.

The Quality of the Work​

Zero complaints from me. The Q&A answers were well written and obviously created by a human. The List links look to have required even more effort, including the gathering of images, etc. The Brand links were probably required the least amount of content.

Is all of this work going to win some kind of Pulitzer Prize or design award? No, but at the same time it's more than good enough for clients to look at and be happy about it, especially at the price point and not having to go through these motions themselves.

The Results​

These are the kind of links I consider "easy wins," meaning that if you know about them and have the time and energy to do all the work required to get them, you can do it. I'd rather not, which is why I was interested in testing out this service.

They're also "easy wins" because they're additional referring domains that you're not likely to get if you don't set out to build them. It's kind of a high-effort endeavor for what they are, which is perfect because that means your competitors likely don't have links on most of these domains.

Let me give some context to this graph: At the time I took this screen capture I could only tell that Google had indexed one of the 9 links. Had they crawled the rest? I don't know, but Ahrefs has found 3 of them already.

I think the safe assumption is that this ranking improvement starting around 9/15 on the graph is from only the one link I can confirm Google crawled and cached. So I suspect more improvements as they find more of them:


That's a movement from around position 35 to 21 so far. I expect more and am going to work for it (I describe how below). This keyword is a 3,600 volume / KD 11 according to Ahrefs. This page had no prior links built to it or during this review process.

The Opportunities​

I think this will be your experience too. Great customer service and links coming at you on time, month after month.

From there, you can decide what to do but I think I'm going to go through the effort of helping these get crawled first. I believe Google will eventually find them but with some of them being profiles or kind of slim (by design of the platform), I want to prod Google in this case.

I've actually built most of these by hand before (and I'm happy to know I don't have to any more, I can trust Invalley to do it well), and I know that it can take a little effort to get them indexed, which is my preference. I don't think Google has to index them (only crawl) to count them, but if they index it then I know for sure they're good with it.

I think the opportunities after you get these reports in is to help them get crawled, mainly by building a few links to each of the links in your report. This will ensure they're crawled, indexed, and juiced up to pass more power to your page. I would create fewer links to the nofollow pages just to get them indexed, but I'd save most of the juice for the pages with dofollow links.

Final Word: A+ Service

If you have clients that need to spread their link wings at first, this is a great spattering of various powerful referring domains. If you're an SEO for yourself, I say the same. These are great foundational links that I think anyone in the industry should have aimed at their sites.

The prices are more than fair for amount of labor that goes into creating these links. I've grinded it out by hand myself several times for various projects and I have to tell you, it's soul-wrenching work. But it's work that I think you must have done. Get it done with @Joozed so you don't have to bother with doing it yourself.
