Review of WL Marketing’s Directory Submission Service (part 3)

This is the final installment in the review of WL Marketing’s directory submission service.

I signed up for the 2000 directory submission package spread over four weeks. The service was only $105. I thought regardless of the outcome, submitting to 2000 directories over four weeks is more than I am willing to do for $100 bucks, so why not.  I felt for  a while that it was a complete waste of money but perhaps I didn’t give the service enough time.

I still question the quality of the links and directories my site was submitted to but I can see for sure that there has been a huge increase in the number of backlinks to my site, from a few dozen to:


Not bad for $100 dollars. There’s no way I would have the time or patience to do this myself. That said, despite now having nearly 4000 links to my site, I have seen no change in page rank on my home page nor have I noticed significant increases in traffic as a result of WL Marketing’s service. Even so, I feel that the service they provided me with was worth the money I paid and is decent value when used in conjunction with my other marketing efforts.

I’ll try out their social bookmarking service next and review when I am done. WL Marketing provides a number of other services for busy marketers who would rather hire out some of their more tedious marketing tasks.

  • Directory Submission Service
  • Social Bookmarking Service
  • Squidoo & Hubpages Lens/Hub Creation
  • Article Marketing Service
  • Content Writing Service
  • Search Engine Indexing Service
  • Blog Carnival Service

If you are busy and would rather spend your time working on other aspects of your business it may be worthwhile looking into WL Marketing’s services.

I would like to know if anyone else reading this blog has used their services and what you thought about them. Please post a comment and add your two cents.

    Hi Doug,

    It is a very nice review. I had been looking for a link building service. The WLMarketing keep showing in Google Searches, therefore I decided to search for reviews on WLMarketing and customers experience. My site is one year old, and it has a Google page rank of 3 and show u at the top of second page in Google searches. It is mostly through my own efforts. However, time is factor, therefore, I am looking for a good link-building service.

    Thanks for the excellent review. I will give them a try and update with my experience later on.

    I used wl marketing a few times. I wasn’t impressed with the 100 Press Release Submissions service they offered. They sent me details of the 100 websites that they submitted my press release to. I logged onto each website and a lot of the accounts hadn’t been activated. I ended up changing the email address, activating the account myself and submitting the press release. Made me wonder what I was paying them for. Other accounts hadn’t been created. The other bad point is that they only ever submitted the press release to the free services which meant the press release never got published quickly, got rejected or had any of the html links to my website removed. (it makes the submission worthless). Overall I got my press release published 10 times of the 100 promised. I also ended up paying some the press release companies a fee to publish the press release with links. One of them was only $5 as well which considering they are an SEO company, I thought wl marketing would see this opportunity and add this service into their fee they charge me. They are cheap for a reason. Seriously don’t expect a good response from their campaigns. I have complained about their service and this was their WLMARKETING’s response…


    Thanks for your note! We always appreciate feedback! 🙂 Regarding this order, we do need to state that it is impossible for us to guarantee submissions for this type of service. The most common problem you are finding is the inability to login. This is likely because these websites do not keep accounts for longer than a year. Many websites will go through and delete inactive accounts. Some websites will delete inactive accounts after only a few months. So although we created an account when the order was placed, it no longer exists. We do our best to submit to free sites only, this avoids a hefty payment on your end, and also keeps the cost lower for our customers. This sometimes has limitations, such as no links present. We do our best to submit to those sites that only allow links, however, we still do post to websites that do not post live backlinks. This still gives clients promotional value. Also, we state that we generally see an acceptance rate of 30-40% of the press releases we submit. This means that not every site we submit to will post your Press Release. So we apologize if you cannot find your press release on certain sites you visit.

    Thanks for the review. I was going to try this service out for my page http://www.costamindre.se but after reading all the comments I think it might be a bad idea.

    I was once a fan of WL Marketing, but then things went sour on an order for which they would not grant the refund I felt I was due. They lost me as a long time customer and didn’t seem to even care when they wouldn’t refund the small amount in question. What a shame. For me, it wasn’t the refund as much as the principle. But they obviously cared more about that small amount of money in one order more than they cared about losing a long time customer who would have continued to order and recommend them. Now, I do neither.
