Full transcript of this SEO Zen video review below:
Today, we’re going to be discussing a product called SEO Zen by guys named Alex Becker, Alex Cass and Mo Miah. This is one of the most low quality, scummiest products that I have reviewed at a long time. We’ll talk about all the reasons why in today’s review from NoMoreBSReviews.com.
This video review has been edited for the sake of brevity. But if at any point during this video you’d like to read the full, unedited review complete with screen shots, you can click the logo in the bottom right hand corner of this video and you’d be taken to the full review that you can skim through at your own pace.
Right after I purchased SEO Zen, I didn’t really have any issues at all. Everything went pretty smoothly. The instructions to install the plug in on my website were very clear and easy to follow and I followed through them and had no issues at all whatsoever. What I interpreted to be a very scummy sales page got off to a pretty good start when I started playing with the product after I had purchased.
But as soon as I installed it and activated it, put in my serial number and everything, everything looked like it was going so smoothly and then I clicked over to the training tab and there was no training. There were instructions on how to access the training. When I followed those instructions, it became very clear to me that I did not have access to the training. There was no way, if I followed those instructions step by step or if I clicked around the entire members’ area for several minutes like I did, there was no training at all whatsoever.
So now I have this product that I’m supposed to be reviewing, I need to review and I just went ahead and pressed forward without any training. I went back to the sales page where Alex Cass takes you through the product in 60 seconds and I followed it along there but I was promised training on the front and I wasn’t delivered any training at all and that was my first really big red flag when I was reviewing SEO Zen.
After I followed all of the instructions on setting up my first silo which is what SEO Zen essentially calls the content pages it’s building on your site, I noticed very quickly that the software was completely worthless and this is why. I pulled a content, I told it to pull a content for optometrists or eye doctors in Sugar Land, Texas. I did that because I have a friend that I have ranked his site for his business in Sugar Land, Texas. He’s an eye doctor. It was very easy for me to rank for so I thought if there was any test as to whether or not this program could rank anything, I didn’t want to pick a really high competition niche. I wanted to pick something that was super low competition that I know is easy to rank for because then, if the tool was at all valid, I would get rankings for it.
What I found very quickly was as soon as I put in all that information, I hit the button, it went over and grabbed an article and I started reading that article, it was for carpet cleaning services in Sugar Land, Texas which is a pretty different industry and a pretty different business than optometrists or eye doctors. I was really taken aback by this. If the software were programmed well at all, it would be able to pick up on that really, really big difference.
In addition to that, when I started reading through it even after I had spun the article which for those of you who aren’t familiar, when you spin an article, it’s a piece of software that swaps certain words out for synonyms and changes the phrasing a little bit so that supposedly, search engines will pick it up as unique content. That does not really work in the first place in today’s search climate. It used to but for about a year or two, it hasn’t worked very well anymore. That’s besides the point. When I went through and I spun the content and then I took the first paragraph, copy-pasted it into Google with quotes, there were ten other websites that had that exact same first paragraph. I had a ton of duplicate content that was related to carpet cleaning services which isn’t at all helpful for getting rankings and especially not getting rankings when you’re trying to rank for eye doctors or optometrists in Sugar Land, Texas.
As if that weren’t enough, just kind of the icing on the cake that really showed me that SEO Zen was just 100% worthless product was as you click through when you start trying to use the other components besides the silo set-up as they call it, you find other bugs within the software. Another one of the biggest bugs I found is where in the video, Alex Cass goes and he pulls a high PR, a high page rank link from another site which in that video by the way, he’s just comment spamming which you don’t get rewarded for. It will actually get your site penalized. In theory, if this tool is supposed to work, I put in a keyword, it pulls up a high PR site that I can get a valuable backlink from which increases the ranking power of my website.
That’s all changed again over the last year search engines don’t go around thinking that that’s how you make money in Internet marketing because it really isn’t anymore. If you’re going to give me a tool, make sure it works. Whenever I put in my keywords or I put in any keywords at all, I tested it several ways, I get a pop up that says this can take up to 90 seconds, please wait. I waited up to 10 minutes at one point and it just kept going. There’s this spinning wheel of death just loading, loading. It never came up with anything. They obviously are not updating the software very often either or keeping up with the bugs and fixing it as problems like this arise which is a pretty major problem.
For all of these reasons, there is just absolutely no way that SEO Zen is worth the $97 or the $127, depending on which license you’re buying. It doesn’t do what it says it’s going to do. It’s impossible to get access to the training because they created some flaw in the members’ area that the training is buried somewhere. That’s not accessible through the links they have anymore. On top of that, you are getting duplicate content and you’re getting content actually that’s not even related to the niche that you’re trying to rank for. For all of those reasons, there’s just no way in the world that I can possible recommend SEO Zen by Alex Becker, Alex Cass, and Mo Miah.
