Ease of Use: **
Power of Links: ***
LinkVana is a good but somewhat painful thing to use. I both hate and love the fact that they don’t have an article spinner. It makes it a real pain to get a large number of links as you’re basically getting them 1 at a time, but it shows how seriously they take the quality of their network. You get 1 link per 100 word post. If you are a big advocate of avoiding duplicate content then this is probably a real plus for you. Realistically you can probably get yourself 10 links an hour working away at this.
The quality of the links are fairly on par with other things. Some blogs are PR2 & PR3 but most are PR1 & PR0. I admittedly haven’t done that much testing with LinkVana so this assessment is based on a smaller sample.
The person that LinkVana is for is people who are concerned with duplicate content and aren’t afraid to work in an effort to get their links.
