Alink Reciprocal link manager

Doing a Google on "reciprocal link manager" I found alink. It is free for a limited time. Has anyone here used it? Is it SE friendly?
If you have used it..and caveats?

Those things are a waste of time. Try to get one way links. Google will probably just devalue the page anyhow. Yahoo may ban you altogether.

Reciprocal sp*m manager

Why do you call it a sp*m manager? Because of the form emails that you can send?
I will do some reading on developing one-way links...seems kind of hard when you have a new site.

thanks for the responses.
Anyone else?

All of the link managers (Zeus, alink, etc) have become known as spam engines. I have set my spam filters to automatically delete ALL emails from these managers. A link to/from any of them is worthless and potentially dangerous.

They are referred to as spam engines because they make it easy to send dozens, hundreds or even thousands of boilerplate emails.

And the engines like "Zeus" make it even worse because they include a spider to scan sites for "relevent" content and harvest email addresses.

Personally, I would avoid them all like the plague. Worthless.

Have tried out a few and am happiest with Arelis.

It's a good balance between allowing you to manage your links campaign, and automating a good amount of the dogwork.
Don't be fooled, you still need a significant amount of time to run your campaign (I have trained someone to manage my linking campaign and am paying her an hourly rate that is much lower than mine (and it's going really well!)).

Arelis has a free 60 day period trial, and beats the competition on a number of features - mentioned by mois in a previous discussion to this Forum this year.

I wonder if RichLowe considers Arelis a sp*m engine, given what Calum says.

We use Arelis as well. It works - but I am not sure if it is worth the time I put into it.

I use linkautomate and it works too. It creates search engine friendly link pages for me and help me keep updated link pages all the time. I think it will not be considered as spamming. Instead, it is a tool to save you time to manage links.
