Good old InfoPirate. This is another social bookmarking site but this one has a unique feature. It is currently in time-out with Google. It has a grand total of 431 indexed pages and from what I understand the admins are trying to correct the issues that got them into trouble with the Google Gods.

Quick Facts about InfoPirate:

Easy Indexing: NO
Easy to Use: YES
Revenue Share: YES
DoFollow: YES
Profile URL Link: NO

Page Rank 0

Don’t expect much too early with this site if you depend on Google traffic. I’ve heard stories that Yahoo loves them though. I don’t pay that much attention to which search engine sends my content traffic but I do know that the vast majority is by way of Google.

InfoPirate is an easy to use site. Just enter your URL, title, a brief description, a category, and some tags and you are good to go. Travis from InfoBarrel mentioned on the forums that they do not allow pages that use the phrase “for sale” in the title. I simply edit my titles to exclude those words and InfoPirate doesn’t seem to have a problem with them.

This site does have revenue share and a referral system. You get an 80% adshare which is a good split assuming you can get some traffic. Lack of indexing = less traffic so don’t expect a lot from this site right now. If they get back in Google’s good graces having some aged scoops on the site could be helpful.

This is one of the social bookmarking sites that have a blog feature. If you want to write on InfoPirate without bookmarking a page you can do so using this feature.

I haven’t been able to find a place to enter a profile URL so that is one more negative for the site. I use this site occasionally but it is not at the top of my list of sites to use. I use this site when I have some spare time that I don’t know what else to do with just because if they get back in Google’s good graces it could help my articles.

Thanks for your information Mary, this is my weakest area of writing and need to bookmark more.

Bookmarking isn't a lot of fun but writing these goofy little reviews makes it a bit more entertaining.
Nov 20, 2010 12:19am
This was to be my next bookmarking site - but I think I'll save this for later and use BookmarkDoFollow next. Great information.

I can't seem to get them to index with google. Read below SOME people seem to have a lot better luck with certain search engines that shall remain nameless. LOL

Yea...Yahoo loves InfoPirate. My bookmarks rank #1 on Yahoo quite often and that's probably why I see at least 1 click a day from InfoPirate. The clicks are high paying too since there is only 1 ad block on the page.

Hopefully they get their reputation cleaned up and both Yahoo and Google will love them at once. Ok that doesn't sound quite right but whatever...

I am going to check on this for you - I believe one of the links on the right hand side My Account - can act as a profile page. I will get back to you and let you know.

It doesn't matter to me. My account is blocked anyway. Lack of originality I think. Could help others to know though.

You can reapply to Fu to have your account reopened. Then if you use
duplichecker.com and FoxySEO to check your webtips for duplication you should be okay.

Infopirate is slowly gaining indexing on Google - just below 700 right now, but obviously they are watching.

In two weeks traffic is up 32% on my own account at IP with corresponding increases in CPM as well. A key is to run a page analyzer on every web tip you post to make sure that the key words the search engines see are what is standing out.

I use the-escape.co.uk/tools/pageanalyze

Good luck,

On Infopirate you don't have a profile URL link but you have two links to your webtips or blog. On the right side of the site is a link for MyWebTips and MyBlog. If you bookmark those the Dofollow link goes straight to your bookmarks(Web Tips) or your blog posts.

Don't forget that Infopirate was the very first revenue sharing Web 2 website and they still have the highest numbers. It's traffic IP needs and right now they are booming with Bing and Yahoo with Google slowly picking up interest.

Thanks for taking the time to expain all that. It's nice to see someone associated with a site that takes time to help its users. Your site has always been a top pick of the IB community. I'm kind of lazy and tend to not take as much time with my bookmarks as most of the others.

Almost afraid to say this and put a jinx on things but there are serious indications that infopirate is being allowed to "crawl" out of the sandbox, finally.

Google bots have quadrupled their crawl rate of the site in the last 10 days and traffic is up almost 100%

I hope those that have remained bookmarking and backlinking on IP get the benefit we IP gets completely out of the box.

As for me -I am posting as many new things from as many different sources as possible.

I found a bug when submitting a URL, it returns a 500 error (but the url is submitted fine). Not sure how to send you a message though!

I am thinking I will give them a go. If my URL's do nothing then all I have wasted is a bit of my time. I have more to gain than lose.

Well, I tried to add a few pages to InfoPirate a few moths ago but I never get any Adsense page views or visits from InfoPirate pages so I gave it up.

InfoPirate is now offline so if you had a ton of backlinks from that site, they're all gone. I had over 300 links on InfoPirate from various sites that have just vanished into thin air. It didn't hurt me that much with my main site, the site I'm working on now, but I did drop a little bit in my alexa ranking which I'm assuming came from InfoPirate going offline.

As far as revenue sharing was concerned, I never really made that much money with them. I made the most when I included pictures to my links. Otherwise it wasn't that profitable a revenue sharing site. I only used it for backlinks. Just felt like sharing the news.
