Review of SocialADR – Tool for Ranking Chiropractic Websites?

In this article, I give a behind the scenes tour of a promising new tool called SocialADR. Is this the tool to help elevate your chiropractic website to the top of the search engines?

The Theory In Action:

Google & Bing are placing great weight recently in what I call Social Signals. As I’ve written previously here in my article on the impact of social voting of chiropractic websites, the search engines are NO LONGER liking low quality backlinks. In fact I have evidence that they are dropping sites that only pursue quantity over quality backlinks such as this article.

Instead, I have strong evidence that Social Signals like Social Voting, Ratings, Reviews, and what I call Social Popularity is what will drive your chiropractic website to the top page of Google & Bing NOW and in the future.

Review of SocialADR – The Tool that Automates Social Popularity

I recently began using an interesting tool called SocialADR. SocialADR is comprised of thousands of users – real humans like me and you – who collectively agree to socially “vote” for the popualrity of each others websites.

Two days ago I pasted the URL of one of my websites into SocialADR. This URL here:
http://www.practicebuildingcenter.com/public/chiropractic-Marketing-Strategies.cfm

This morning I logged in and saw this:

Without me having to really do much of anything, the users of SocialADR made this page popular…

    • They socially bookmarked my site to fifty times, without me having to do much of anything to cause this to occur.
    • This was not done with suspicious software, but actual users with Diverse IP addresses from around the USA/World.
    • SocialADR seems to effectively simulate social popularity that occurs naturally when something gets big and goes viral socially.
    • Google/Bing likes to see diversity! This is what happens naturally on the internet. These 5o social votes came from all sorts of different sites, and users.
    • This got me some incredible High Quality backlinks. I got two backlinks from Delicious.com which has PageRank of 8! This one backlink is worth more than 2,000 lesser quality backlinks.

Here is a PageRank 8 backlink I got thanks to this user who bookmarked my webpage using SocialADR:

 

Twitter – A New Social Signal for Ranking?

Twitter is a great way to get traffic and patients. But did you know that Google & Bing are now looking at the backlinks flowing through Twitter as a measure of your Social Popularity?

For proof, go read this mind blowing article from SEOMoz called A Tweet’s Effect On Rankings – An Unexpected Case Study. In a mere 4 hours they ranked #4 in the world for the phrase “Beginners Guide” by doing nothing except sharing their URL on Twitter. Gee, what does that tell you about what Google/Bing are looking for?

Well, check this out.

SocialADR Got Its Users to Twitter My Links.

Take a look at all the action this URL of mine got in Twitter using SocialADR:

Here is a sample Tweet a user sent, again, without my having to do much of anything:

As they say on cheesy infomercials, that’s not all.

SocialADR also got my a bunch of diverse Google +1’s which definitely helps with ranking of your website.

Take a look at this screenshot inside my account:

 

How SocialADR Works & What It Costs

There are two plans.

A Free Plan. The upside is that is costs nothing. The downside (for me) was that to participate in the free plan, I would have to earn credits by social bookmarking, tweeting, and Google +1’ing other users sites.

I don’t have time for that. That is why I went for the Paid Plan. In my case since I am a Power User, I purchased the plan called Lazy Linkaholic. I am essentially “buying credits” so that I can put the huge diverse base of SocialADR users to work for me.

I have found the Lazy Linkaholic plan to be highly effective. I realize this may not be in everyone’s budget but if you can afford it, that’s the plan I would select. You can see the pricing structure for SocialADR here.

Conclusions:

Here’s my rundown and recommendations for SocialADR based on my own testing as a paid user myself:

    • I am highly critical of most search engine tools and services. Often they are a scam and don’t work OR they can get you into trouble with Google/Bing and actually hurt your site rankings. However the good news is…
    • SocialADR – Recommended! SocialADR fits my criteria for an effective modern day tool to elevate your chiropractic website in the rankings. It avoids ANY “footprint” through a diversified base of users and it is completely white hat – meaning, nothing that can get your site into trouble with rankings. Everything is legit and all the social votes are from real users and real humans, which is exactly what Google/Bing want to see.
    • On our private membersite PracticeBuildingCenter.com, I wrote a detailed report showing how chiropractors need to integrate SocialADR into a bigger picture plan that utilizes exactly eight Social Signals that should rank your site fast to the top of Google. The feedback and early results from the method laid out in this Report has been excellent. I suggest getting your hands on a copy if you believe (like I do) that Social Signals is the HERE AND NOW of ranking fast in Google/Bing.

    Hi Ben, great info. I am planning to leave my templates chiropractic website service. Do you recommend a particular hosting platform where I can take my URL that is compatible with all your awesome recommendations like socialADR and speed squeeze pages?

  2. Ben Cummings January 5, 2012 at 4:35 pm #

    Your top criteria should be (a) reliability and (b) the best possible customer support, ideally accessible by telephone because frequently “stuff” comes up.

    The top company I have been recommending for years is this one:
    http://practicebuildingcentral.com/hostgator

    I am a paying customer of this service with over a half dozen different hosting accounts, if that tells you anything.

    • Oliver September 16, 2014 at 3:14 pm #

      Do NOT use hostgator! They moved their data center to provo, utah same as blue host that has had more than 3 crashes in this year alone. Also hostgator’s support has gone down hill since they were bought out by AIG.

    Very in-debt review, SocialAdr looks great, I’ll check it out! Keep up the great posting Ben.

    • Ben Cummings January 5, 2012 at 5:50 pm #

      “In-debt” review? Hopefully using services like SocialADR it will get you “OUT-a-debt” 🙂

    Ben, what are your thoughts on Digi Traffic Accelerator?…did Panda make this software obsolete or is there value in using it still and how does it compare to SocialADR?

    • Ben Cummings January 6, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

      Panda has noting to do with eliminating social signals such as social bookmarking – in fact just the opposite. It is bringing them front and center. That is what I talked about in this and my other Chirobullets post (hint-hint. Might be time to read them 🙂

      • Daniel January 10, 2012 at 4:11 pm #

        Hey Ben, I understand that Panda is now looking for social signalling, I’m just wondering what your thoughts are on DigiTraffic Accelerator?….is this similar to SocialADR in terms of generating backlinks?

        Thanks for all your info…I know you know this, but you absolutely contribute to the success of this profession!

        • Ben Cummings January 10, 2012 at 6:09 pm #

          Thanks for the nice words Daniel. Digi Traffic Accelerator does social bookmarks to about 500 sites. Last time I checked it was sold out and costs about $20-$30/month. However socialadr does more and, I believe, is safer to use with Google sicne you are getting REAL bookmarks across diverse IP’s from all over the world.

    Ben,

    What a great tool! I am definitely going to go and check it out. Thanks for all the great info you put out.

    • Ben Cummings January 10, 2012 at 11:27 am #

      Glad you like it. SocialADR is pretty amazing how it has been organized.

  6. Steve Smiley January 29, 2012 at 7:54 pm #

    Great info once again. Ben…do they let you do multiple sites for the same fee? Or is each site another fee? Thanks!

  7. Terry Smith February 1, 2012 at 5:19 pm #

    Hey Ben, will they send to multiple web pages or sites or do you need to set up separately for each site you want to drive traffic to. Thanks

    Ben,

    Thanks for the honest update. I was using Syndd (I think that’s how its spelled) for a bit but there was something about the setup on our own desktop and leaving it running 24/7 that made me nervous.

    This SocialADR seems like a ‘legit’ way to get real, diverse promotion. I’ll start free and see where it goes from there.

    • Ben Cummings May 19, 2012 at 6:05 am #

      Thanks for the nice comment Jeff. I have explored Synnd also, but agree that it is NOT very user-friendly. SocialADR seems to be working very well for us and our clients.

      Ben

    Hi,I’m new to internet marketing and blogging and I thank you for providing a comprehensive tools to help manage our business. I’ll definitely check this one out. Thanks.

  10. Joe July 18, 2012 at 12:19 pm #

    Once again, another great recommendation from Ben. Keep up the awesome work. I will definitely be using this little gem.

  11. David C. August 14, 2012 at 6:11 pm #

    Sounds great. I’m in a rural town of 850 people with a satelite office in a town about the same size. Do you have any experience with anyone utilizing this or twitter in this enviroment. I’m setting out poles as quickly as poosible but I also want to prioritize a little as to what I spend my time on.

  12. Brian Ruggiero March 11, 2013 at 8:49 pm #

    Another great nugget.

  13. Tom September 16, 2014 at 12:07 pm #

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for the detailed information. I searched for you website and the page used in your case study on Google with the “Chiropractic Marketing Strategies” search phrase and it’s nowhere near the top (I went four pages deep and still nothing).

    Has this social bookmarking strategy using this tool lost its luster after two years? Or is Google now doing something to punish its use? I would imagine you’re no longer recommending this strategy and service?

    The $117 fee for the linkholic is worthwhile if it delivers the goods, so I was hoping to get your thoughts on this two years later, since it doesn’t seem to have done anything for your website.

    Thank you.

    Looks very cool, but what was the net effect on the ranking or traffic for your website?
