Think Links is more than a linking report. It's a
powerful guide to creating your own cyber real estate network. While others are building neighborhood shops, our goal
is to create a business that has "franchises" all over the internet. We
want to be everywhere there is traffic.
Think Links takes linking a step or two beyond the
normal linking products. We aren't linking to boost a single mini-site
to the top for good keywords. Instead, we're building a network of resources that will
be able to boost the rankings of many sites.
This won't happen immediately. It takes longer to build
a shopping mall than a single store. But it is more powerful. Much more
By setting things up as detailed here, we are building a

Getting links by the tons is easy. The key to this is
really more about content (words). We cover this in more detail in Biggest SEO Secret-Content,
but you should always be on the lookout for more content. The
more content you have access to, the easier it is to build real estate
"Words" are the building bricks of cyber real estate and SEO.
The more bricks you have, the more buildings you can create.
Link Velocity - How
Fast Should I Build Links?
There's a concept called "link velocity" and it concerns how fast a
site gains links. The theory of link velocity is, the faster you gain links, the higher you rank. It's
possible Google sees a site that's getting links quickly as a site
that's "hot", and you get rewarded. Gaining links very quickly can
often be "natural" and a sign of popularity.
Then, your site quits getting links, or gets them much
slower and your ranking drops accordingly.This could be mistaken for
the infamous "sandbox", but it's more of a glass half full/half empty
point of view. Your site isn't being penalized, instead it is no longer
being rewarded for having high link velocity.
The general wisdom was to create links slowly, over
time. The thinking is that you should be links slowly and surely. If
you go too fast, your site will end up the the Google "sandbox"
(disappear for a few months).
Link velocity is just a theory...But it
is something to think about. And, the more sophisticated the SEOers, the
more likely they discuss link velocity.
We talk all the time about getting links "naturally".
But what is natural? Isn't it natural for some sites to get exposure on
national TV, then get flooded with traffic and links in a short time?
Or written up in a major magazine or newspaper? Wouldn't links gained
from these events be "natural"?
Why is it natural for a page to get links gradually, at
a steady pace, over a period of time?
It's just my opinion, but it would seem that the
"natural" way sites and pages get links is that they'll get more links
when they are first posted, with the "link velocity" declining over
With everything considered, my advice is to get links as
fast as you can, assuming you can maintain that pace for a period of
time. However, if you do get links quickly, you should probably make
sure your links are also found in the social networks as well. After
all, if a site is gaining in popularity it would seem that people would
be "talking" about it.
You also need to get links from a wide variety of
sources and blend many other strategies to make them look more
"natural". Most webmasters seem to rely on only one or two linking
strategies, which may be the real problem of the "sandbox".
Whether valid or not, you should at least consider the
theory of link velocity. Build sites, blogs, Web 2.0 accounts and social accounts and test
the principle of Link Velocity. Build links at different speeds to
different network resources of your's and test it for yourself...Just
don't accept that building links slowly and surely is the "best" route
to take, without checking it out for yourself.
This is why we build gold, silver and tin sites...We use
the tin sites to test (in addition to building links).
You can increase your links, traffic and reach this way
without worrying about if you're getting links to your original site
too fast or too slow.
Link decay is a concept being talked about recently and
it makes very good sense. It's the opposite of link velocity. Link
decay is when you lose links and the speed which you do so. If your
sites are losing links, it may be a sign that your site isn't very good
and/or you are using link spamming techniques.
If you think about it, it makes sense. Why would a site
lose links at a faster rate than "normal" for that niche? And, it could
very well vary from niche to niche. You may be able to build and lose
links quickly in one niche, but the same strategy could be disastrous
in another niche. Don't let seo "experts" tell you what is going on
based on their own single example.
So if you are going to build links for the long-haul,
you probably want to build them as fast as possible, but only in ways
that these links will "stick". This means you can't create tons of spam
links, then point these links to crap pages.
Here's a few relevant articles concerning link decay and
LSI is a complex, technical SEO subject. Instead of
getting into every detail here, just understand what it really means is
that search engines may look for other words in a page to help
determine what the page is about.
It's very possible that Google doesn't use LSI in its
rankings. Google bought the technology to LSI to use for Adsense, so
they could place relevant adds automatically.
However, the concept of LSI still applies through the
use of "themes", which Google very likely uses. Even though LSI
probably doesn't exist for ranking purposes, I'll still use "LSI" to
mean anything related to "themes".
For example, let's take the word "apple" used on three
apple => mac, iPod, iPhone, Steve Jobs, OSX
apple => records, Ringo, Paul McCartney, Liverpool, John Lennon, Hey
apple => fruit, pies, brown betty, food
You should be able to see how all three pages about
"apple" are all actually about different subjects, based on other words
used on the page.
When trading, posting or creating links in any way, you
want to use LSI keywords in your anchor text so that all your links on
OTHER sites don't link to you using the exact same phrase...Having 100
sites use the exact same text to describe your site just doesn't look
natural and likely reduce the value of the link.
"Anchor text" is the words in the CLICKABLE LINK, like
this: Click for the Google search
"Google search" is the anchor text in the sentence
After you do your keyword research, you'll want to use
your best keyword about 50-60% of the time, and another 9-10 phrases the
rest of the time.
For example, LSI related anchor text may look something
apple pie recipes
how to bake pies
Simply, mix up anchor text on OTHER SITES, using related
but different keywords.
Google Search -
Google now has a feature to display
related keywords. Do a search for your keywords, then in the lower
left-hand column, click "Related searches". This will bring up the SERP
with related keywords listed at the top.
PageRank is a way Google determines the value of the
links pointing to a page. To over-simplify, PR is based on the number
of links in Google's index and what percentage of them point to a
certain page. The more and the better the links a page has, the higher
So same that PR is no longer important. IMO, it's still
very important. However, what we see in the Google toolbar isn't the
real PR. Google uses two PRs: Internal and External. What we see in the
Google toolbar is External PageRank. It's just an estimate of the real,
Internal PageRank Google uses to determine rankings in their search
engine results pages.
While external PageRank isn't 100% accurate, I'd still
rather have a link from a page with a PR of 5 than one with a PR0. On
the other hand, too many linkers worry too much about PR. There are
other factors that determine the "link juice" (the benefit the link
passes on), such as Trust, Authority, Hilltop, etc.
Trust Rank is another way Google determines the value of a link. How well
respected are the sites that link to you?
Every link to your pages doesn't have the same value.
For example, links from domains using .gov or .edu were thought to be
more highly respected by Google than links from other extensions.
Google's logic was that links from .gov and .edu aren't available to
everyone and therefore have more "trust".
(This is further blurred by the possibility that SEOers
have exploited this, so the value of .edu and .gov links may not be as
powerful as they once were.)
Other sites may also be "whitelisted" and thus their
links carry more weight, such as respected sites like cnet.com, Yahoo's
paid directory, DMOZ/ODP, sites included in Google News (which are approved by hand) etc.
Other factors that could determine "Trust" that are "on
How long ago was the domain name registered?
How many years in the future has your domain name been
Is the whois info hidden? If yes, what are you hiding?
How long has your site been up?
How long have the pages been published?
Do you have 50,000 pages all with the same creation date
and time? How'd you do that?
All of the above likely factor into the link juice that's passed though a link.
Hilltop is a complex system believed to be used by
Google. Without going into the gory details, understand the concept
that the relationship between two sites can influence how much impact
linking between the two sites has.
For example, the links between two sites that are known
to be "affiliated" won't/shouldn't count as much as a link from a
totally "unaffiliated" site.
"Affiliation" in this case is simply any biased
relationship. This relationship can be determined by:
your domain name "whois" info
shared affiliate IDs. For example, do multiple sites
use the same Amazon affiliate ID, or worse, the same Google AdSense
When building your network, try to understand the basics
of Hilltop and link "unaffiliated" pages together. Try to be "stealthy"
and not put affiliate info on everything you own.
This is another example of why third party
resources can be so powerful. Try to play a little "spy vs. spy" and
keep who owns the sites and pages as secret as possible.
Also understand that if you log into your Blogger
account and your AdSense account on the same PC, Google probably knows
you're the same person. So, if it's a Google property, play it straight
and don't be as aggressive.
The use of third party hosting, such as free blogs,
Squidoo, Hubpages, etc, are great for helping you hide your
"affiliations". All of your resources don't share the shame host, IP or
name servers. And, you don't need to register domain names, which use
your personal info.
Plus, you save tons of money on hosting and buying
and "Sacrificial Links"
You know the old saying, "You're known by the company you keep"? This
applies to links all over the web.
You've probably heard that linking to "bad
neighborhoods" (spammy, low ranking pages) is bad. If we agree with
this, then logically we may think that linking to good pages is a good
thing. And it is very likely we inherit some of the good or bad from
the pages we link to, as well as some of the relevancy of the pages that we link to and from.
Not only that, we may also inherit the good/bad of other
pages by merely sharing a link on the same page. This is the main concept of
Let's say SiteC links to both SiteA and SiteB. Even
though SiteA and SiteB are NOT directly linked, Google will use this
"citation" and say the pages are probably related to some degree,
simply because they both have links from SiteC.
I suggest you take advantage of this by using what I
call "sacrificial links". These are links to pages on sites that are so
big and have so much authority, trust and link juice that adding a few
more links won't change anything in their rankings.
Our goal is to "sponge" some of the "good" these sites
have created and spread it to our own sites and pages.
For example, I have a site about pets and wildlife. There's a few sites in this niche that are so big and
powerful, I will never over-take them. Sites like
NationalGeographic.com, AnimalPlanet.com, etc. These even have their
own TV stations in the US.
So what I want to do is add links to these highly
respected sites all over my network, and at the same time include
links to my own pages at the same time.
This will give my own site "co-citations" with the
heavy-weights. It will also give the pages containing links to the
heavy-weights the ability to inherit some of the "juice" those pages
have earned. Again, if linking to bad sites is bad, let's assume
linking to good sites is good.
Not only can we inherit many of the SEO benefits, we are
also branding our own gold sites. If my site is listed
next to NatiionalGeographic and AnimalPlanet and plastered all over my
network, then people will start seeing my site as an EQUAL.
Some links are considered better than others. For
example, most people think getting a link from a page with a PR6 is better than a link
with PR0...And it probably is.
Also, links from sites hosted on .edu and .gov are
considered to be "good" links, and it's possible they are, although
recent updates seem to point to .edu and .gov links not having any
There's a lot of webmasters that only seek out high PR
links. However, getting only "good" links isn't the optimal way to get
I know a very hard core SEOer that constantly
tested and researched everything he possibly could. What he found was
that a natural pattern was FAR BETTER for getting links than was just
concentrating on "good" links.
His tests showed that have a ratio of ABOUT 40-50: 1 was
This means that for every "good" link, such as .edu,
.gov or PR5+, you should have about 40-50 links from pages with low PR,
such as PR0, PR1.
And this makes sense...How natural is it for a site to
only have PR5+ links pointing to it? It smacks of SEO manipulation.
Controlling PR/Link Juice -
can control and manipulate link juice on your own pages through
your link structure. A year or two ago, Google announced that they were
cracking down on "PR sculpting" and Matt Cutts has stated that Google
prefers that you don't "nofollow/noindex" your site's terms of service
However, if you have multiple domains, I still suggest a
little experimenting with PR sculpting on some of them. And, be sure to
add nofollow tags to your affiliate links whenever possible.
For example, if you have the following pages:
TOS | About us | Contact | Disclaimer
You may not want to pass on link juice to these pages
and save that juice for your real money pages. All you need to do is
add the NOFOLLOW tag to the links of pages you don't want to pass link
A typical link to your TOS page may look like:
Just add the nofollow tag like this:
<A HREF="TOS.html" rel="nofollow">TOS</A>
Same thing for affiliate links and other similar
...And you can conserve your link juice to pass on to
Also, you should structure your site to take advantage
of this concept. After doing your keyword research, you should have a
list of your "best" keywords. Build pages focused on these keywords,
then create other pages to build links to these pages.
You want every page (or as many as possible) to point to
your "best pages". But, you only want as few links as possible to point
to your "other" pages, focusing all the link juice possible onto your
Just structuring your own internal linking strategy
correctly can give your "money" pages a nice boost in the Engines.
"Canonical" URLs concerns that URLs can be written differently, even
all point to the same place. For example, all of the following are the
That's 6 different URLs that are technically correct,
that all point to the same page.
However, Google will see these as 6 different pages,
although Google has been trying to correct this for years.
This means, any links you get can be divided between all
6 variations, diluting any link juice you're trying to build.
To some degree you can control this by always using the
same format to link to your sites and pages. If you use www. once, you
need to use it every time.
Problem is, you can't control how others link to you.
This means you may not be getting all the link juice you could be
getting from the same number of links.
There's a couple of technical solutions. But if you are
technical enough, you don't need my help. If you aren't technical
enough, I'm not techy enough to help you.
What you need to do is ask your admin or host to either
set up a "301 redirect" or create an .htaccess file for you that
accounts for "Canonical URLs".
If they are good, it should be easy for them and
shouldn't cost more than $10-20, if they won't do it for you for free.
This should create an .htaccess file which you can use for your other
domains on that same host.
If you want to try and do it yourself, you can google
Canonical URLs + htaccess
301 redirect + Canonical URLs
Intro to Canonical URLs
a little techy for most, it is a great advantage
for the linkers/SEOers that take the time...And even tough as it seems
little advanced for most, it is a very IMPORTANT linking technique that
any SEOer needs to investigate further.
Sure, links and optimization are important...But the
essential element of SEO is content creation.
Without content, you don't need backlinks, page titles,
anchor text, meta tags, etc.
And the more content you have, the easier and better it
is for search engine marketing.
I've been doing SEO since 1996. I've had clients and
done SEO for myself and friends. And it always comes down to "words".
Sites with a lot of words have always been easier to get results than
the sites with few words.
Search engines index words. And every word on every page
you'll ever have is a "keyword", except of course the "stop words",
which are common words like "the, at, on, a, for, to", etc. Every other
word on the page is actually a keyword.
Sure, you may have primary keywords in your page title
or meta tags, but the engines still index every other word. And these
"other" words, can and do bring traffic from the engines.
The more words you have, the better chance you have for
traffic. The more words you have, the more real estate you can add.
The more real estate you add, the more links you can
get, and faster. If you believe adding links too fast is a problem (I
don't), then if you only have one site, you'll only add 5 links a day,
for example. But if you have 10 sites, you can add 5 a day to each, or
50 total links.
Search engine marketing is a numbers game...It's really
all about "market share". Ask yourself the following questions...The
questions are rhetorical, but the concept is the basis of all good SE
How many words are in the engines?
How many of them are your's?
How many pages are in the engines?
How many of them are your's?
How many links are indexed and
counted by the engines? How many of them are your's?
There's no rules saying you can only have a small piece
of the pie. It's your job to get as big a slice as you can. It is YOUR
job to increase your market share.
And getting the biggest slice you can is the biggest
step in SE marketing. Forget about ranking for a single keyword for a
moment. The only way to get serious SE traffic is by having tons and
tons of pages with words, and have tons and tons of links, pointing to
Massive content creation is the key to super SE
marketing. With a bunch of content, you can grab cyber real estate. And
each resource you create is another chance to rank in the SEs. And each
of these can get high ranking.
Again, there's no rules that say you can only own one of
the Top 10 spots in the results pages. Your ultimate goal is to own as
many Top 10 spots for as many different keywords (of value) that you
possibly can. And this can only be done through having content.
I won't get into creating content in depth here. My
point is that as a serious SE marketer, you need to be constantly on
the look-out for SE-ready content...
Here's a couple of concepts to get you started and will
help streeeeetch your content.
Creating indexes of content. Go to one of the article
sites and grab 10 articles. Place one each on 10 DIFFERENT sites/blogs
you own. Be sure to keep the author's info intact, we aren't stealing.
Add your own advertising and opt-in forms to the pages containing these
Break down each article into separate paragraphs. Some
larger paragraphs can even be broken down into more parts.
Take each part and use it as a description that links to
the whole article. Surround the description in quotes.
You should easily come up with 40-60 descriptions using
this method. Add each to a permanent "clip" using Spartan Multi-Clipboard. This
will save them for you to use in the future.
Now create a new resource. Open Spartan and paste in 4-8
description at random to use as content. If you want, you can change a
few words in each to make them more unique, but it's not necessary. You
can also delete/add a few words to each, just to vary them a bit.
What you'll end up with is a page of different
"descriptions" from 10 different articles, all mixed and matched in
You can repeat this over and over and over, using
different combos, to create your cyber real estate network. Keep adding
new articles and descriptions.
You can also use the same method with PLR, public domain
and your own original writing. The key is to chop them up, then mix and
match and add to other sites.
In my MadBomber forum, I teach a similar method...The
goal is to come up with 100 paragraphs of info about a specific niche.
Don't make all the paragraphs about one tight niche. Instead, focus on
your specific niche, but also include other related topics.
For example, if I have a site about "poodles", I'll have
about 10-15 of these paragraphs about "poodles". But I'll also add a
paragraph or two about "dogs", "german shepards", "dog training", "dog
food", etc., referring to LSI/themed related keywords.
And be sure to include a few affiliate products, or
links to your own stuff. Make these good, solid paragraphs.
The goal is to have 100 good paragraphs with each being
able to stand on their own. By this, I mean they will make sense and be
of value no matter what other paragraphs are before or after.
Now create a sit containing all 100 paragraphs, or two
sites of 50 paragraphs each. These will be your gold sites. Squidoo,
Hubpages, etc are good to use for this. We'll name this site(s)
something like "50 Misc. Facts about Poodles and Dogs". Be creative and
change the title to fit your own needs.
Next take all 100 paragraphs and save them to a text
file. As you create more real estate, use these paragraphs to build
For example, you have a Squidoo lens with 50 dog tips.
Go to blogger.com and create a blog. Open your 100 paragraphs and copy
3-8 of them into Spartan. Paste them into your blog and say something
like "Here's some random poodle and dog tips, for a big list of 50
poodle tips, visit this Squidoo lens".
What you've done is reused your content and then pointed
people to "get more", in a natural linking style.
You should have a variety of keywords sprinkled into
these paragraphs. Using the html editor in Blogger, pick a couple and
put a few contextual links to any other resources you may have.
Think about it...I've used this same strategy for making
pages for 15 years. It worked in 1996 and it is working now. Why worry
about "duplicate content", whether it's true or a myth? My strategy
100 unique paragraphs can make 20 articles of 5
paragraphs that are 100% unique.
You can make 100's and 100's of articles that are 80%
unique, when compared to each other.
And by "unique", I mean unique INFORMATION, not just strings of
Writing individual "misc" tips is easier than entire
articles. And with short attention spans, real people prefer reading
lists and "tidbits".
You win in the SEs.
Your readers (REAL PEOPLE) win.
I go into far more detail in my MadBomber forum, as well
as supply you with custom software to make this easier and more
effective. This is a tremendous strategy to reuse content that I've
used for 15 years with success, while creating pages that will be
60-100% unique, when compared to the other pages created this way.
One way to not look like a spammer is to use camouflage
pages. You can do this a number of ways, but here's the basic idea.
Set up a few blogs. You can use Blogger, WordPress or
even an html page that simulates a blog. Just make sure this page isn't
hosted on anything that can be traced back to you. There's a list of
253 free blog platforms in the left frame. Use them.
Add a little content, it can be about anything that
ISN'T commercial. Put up some jokes, a "journal" of what you did today,
talk about your school, your job. Again, anything that isn't
Next go to Youtube.com and add a couple of the most
popular videos you can find. You want your content to be of interest to
the general public.
Now, spam yourself using comments. You can use the
"commenter's" name to link to profiles, etc.
If you use html, just format the comments to resemble
blog comments. Add a comment form and button. It won't work, and
doesn't need to, but it adds to the page's camouflage.
Try to simulate (but NOT copy) some Google AdSense ads.
But add links to your own silver and gold sites.
Now use a link to this camouflage page in your
profile pages. You won't look like a spammer or even a marketer.
Think about what others will see if they visit this
What you did today.
A couple of jokes.
A funny/popular video or two.
A couple of spam comments
You can easily get 4-12 links to your other real estate
on this page without looking like a marketer. You can even allow a few
"real" spam comments to really add camouflage for Google.
comments can be used for hiding links, helping with the SEO and Adsense
relevancy, etc. I can "spam" my own comments so the comments look
commercial while leaving the page itself "innocent".
If you notice the "Add This" buttons right below the
video, this even gives the page the possibility of going viral. And
going viral means traffic and link juice.
Camouflage pages such as this are part of a very solid linking, SEO and traffic strategy. Again, look at this example of a example of a camouflage page
and add your own elements. Add keyword filled anchor text to user
names. Download a few free royalty-free icons to make your comments
look more real. The possibilities are truly endless.
Everyone's PC comes with a clipboard that lets you copy
and paste different data, like text, pictures, etc.
However, there's two majors problem with the regular
1. It's limited to a single clip. One you "copy"
something else, the last thing copied to the clipboard is erased.
2. If you restart your PC, whatever is in your clipboard
Here's an example, if I give you a list of 8 things to
paste into Roboform, with a single clipboard, you copy, switch from
this page to Roboform, paste, then switch back.
If you use a multi clipboard, you copy all the stuff you
need, then only switch ONE TIME to Roboform, then paste each item.
I use a program called "Spartan Multi Clipboard". On my
laptop, I use M8Clips. The are both similar and have the same
functions. And I consider one or the other to be essential. Whenever I
get a new PC, one of the very first things I load to it is a multi
Here's a video tutorial on how to use Spartan Multi
Clips - Free Version of Spartan - Limited to 25 clips. It
works just like Spartan multi-clipboard, except there's no feature to
keep clips permanently. However, the free version is still a tremendous
time saver while doing our Think Links campaign.
Even though the free version is of great help, I still
suggest you buy the full version and get to know how it works:
If you're on a linking campaign, every time you type
something new, copy it into Spartan. There's a good chance you will
need to use this info again during your campaign.
Every time you create a new resource, save the link
in your permanent clips, both HTML and BB (bulletin board)
versions.. This makes it ever so easy to add you links to the next
property you build.
We are going to do some serious automation. Now's not
the time to get lazy. A hour or so spent getting this ready will payoff
10x during your linking campaigns.
If you want to be lazy and still get things done, this
is the start. I won't give you a longer "pep talk"...It's up to you.
To get some motivation, read my descriptions and you
should see the value.

want to pay for Roboform. This plugin will do a lot of the "typing" for
us and is the
most complicated of the plugins. Spend 30 minutes really getting to
know it, it will be a real time (and finger) saver.
Here's an example of how powerful this is in combo with
Selected Links. In parts of Think Links, I give you lists of links
pointing to sites that use the same software. Even though these are
totally different sites and on different IPs, you join them using pretty
much the same info.
You click/drag over 10-15 of these links. Your Selection
Links plugin will open each in a different tab.
Next, you fill in all the details on the first page and
save this as a "profile" in AutoFILL Forms. (More detail below)
When you're done with the first tab, you click on the
second tab and BAM! All the info is filled out for you automatically.
Check to make sure everything is correct, make a minor mod and click on
Tab 3 and BAM! Your info is filled out for you again.
Now I don't suggest you simply create profiles. Some of
these resources have some very powerful features you will want use.
However, the time saved is still the same. Once a profile for that type
of site is filled out, and you visit the sign up page, your info will
be filled out for you...More often than not, you will only have to hit

Create a List of 100+ Sacrificial
Sacrificial links are what I call links to
other sites used to camouflage your own links. These links should not
be competition for you, and should be to major sites where a few more
links really won't impact them, like Youtube, Wikipedia, current news,
Find links about pets, animals, humor, etc.
and store them in a text file. These URLs will be very beneficial once
you start bookmarking. You'll want to use these links along with your
own links, so it doesn't look like you are only submitting your own
this prep may seem like a lot, but
think of Henry Ford. You want to create a "conveyor belt" system where
you do one thing at a time. You don't what to whip out your bookmarking
software, only to find you need some more sacrificial links. And if you
don't mix your links with other links of interest, there's a far
greater chance your accounts on the bookmarking sites will be banned.
When you do something over and over, link
find links or graphics, you are faster and more efficient. Any time you
need to switch task, you waste time.
You choice is a simple one: You can spend a
little time now getting organized and collecting resources, or you can
spend a lot more time in the future. You may even waste your time by
creating forum, web 2.0 and bookmarking accounts, only to have them
banned because you didn't use some common sense and prepare
And losing links may not only waste your
time, it could also cost you rankings. It is my belief that Google uses
a concept called "link decay". If your number links are constantly
declining, maybe your site isn't very good. Think about it.
Social bookmarking is a method for
Internet users to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks of web
pages on the Internet with the help of metadata, typically in the form
of tags that collectively and/or collaboratively become a folksonomy.
Folksonomy is also called social tagging, "the process by which many
users add metadata in the form of keywords to shared content".
In a social bookmarking system, users save
links to web pages that they want to remember and/or share. These
bookmarks are usually public, and can be saved privately, shared only
with specified people or groups, shared only inside certain networks,
or another combination of public and private domains. The allowed
people can usually view these bookmarks chronologically, by category or
tags, or via a search engine.
Most social bookmark services encourage
users to organize their bookmarks with informal tags instead of the
traditional browser-based system of folders, although some services
feature categories/folders or a combination of folders and tags. They
also enable viewing bookmarks associated with a chosen tag, and include
information about the number of users who have bookmarked them. Some
social bookmarking services also draw inferences from the relationship
of tags to create clusters of tags or bookmarks.
Simply, bookmarking is adding links to favorite sites. And there's a
lot of bookmarking sites, each giving us an opportunity to create more
There's also web site software that lets folks create
their own bookmarking sites. Two of the more popular scripts are Pligg
and Social Web CMS, which is an off-shoot of Pligg. If you're at all
familiar with Digg.com, Pligg let's you have your own "Digg-like" site.
So you have the "major" bookmarking sites and thousands
of Pligg and Social Web sites that you can use to create more links.
You don't want to be seen as a spammer and only submit
links to your own commercial sites. Remember, these are "favorite"
links users are posting. You can't post your "buy viagra" links over
and over and get away with it.
You don't want to lose links. First, it destroys the
work you put into getting the links, and losing links may very well be
a ranking factor.
For best results, you want to have a lot of different
sites you can submit, and these shouldn't be sales letters. Instead,
write content and articles bookmark these pages.
Then point these pages to your sales pages and affiliate links.
Also, include a BUNCH OF SACRIFICIAL LINKS. These are
links to major sites that have nothing to do with your links. Add links
to your camouflage pages, funny and popular videos, news articles, etc.
Then sprinkle in your own links that go to real content pages.
Then use some camouflage on these pages by faking spam
comments and point to 1-3 of your profile pages. But don't directly
bookmark profile pages. That's too obvious.
And the more content you have spread over the web the
more you can utilize bookmarking. And by spread out, I mean on
different sites, domains, blogs, IPs, etc.
The point is, you can transfer link juice you build.
Create some pages with great content and link to those pages. Then use
these pages to pass link juice on to your money pages. The better your
pages are, the more aggressive you can be with your linking.
I've heard from more than one friend that Squidoo has
banned them due to "improper linking". Both used a lot of bookmarks. So
be very "gentle" pointing to Squidoo (and Hubpages).
Instead, point to other pages, then point these pages to
One Warning: When using Pligg sites, Pligg can be hacked so
you download bad stuff. Make sure when you're visiting these types of
sites your Virus protection is up to date.This is true even if you only
use submission software and don't visit the sites directly.
You may even want to check out a program called Sandboxie, for protection above
and beyond what any anti-virus can provide.
For even more protection, learn how to install and use
VMWare Player. VMWare is like having an entire separate PC running on
your computer. So when you run a program such as Bookmarking Demon in
an instance of VMWare, all your passwords and login info is kept
separate in your "main" windows. And if you get a virus in VMWare, just
delete the VMWare folder and make a new one.
Note: While VMWare Player is free, you need a windows
installation disk for VMWare to create a "virtual machine" for you. I
suggest finding an old Windows XP disk online and use it.
VMWare can be a hassle setting up at first, but it has
ENORMOUS benefits for white and black hatters alike. Think about the
ability of having multiple "computers" all running on the same
computer. One example is, I have an instance of VMWare set up to use a
Internet Explorer proxy switcher.
Since many link automation programs use IE to browse the web, this
means the programs I run in VMware use a different IP address (via
proxies) than does my "main" Windows computer, all on the same PC.
I recommend you run Bookmarking Demon in an instance of VMware. This
not only lets you use multiple IPs/proxies with ease, it also protects
you from the viruses and downloads you are likely to come across when
submitting to tons of sites. Remember, when you submit to a site your
PC has to visit that site. And if you use automation, you could be
visiting 1000s of sites a day, increasing your risk for viruses over
those folks that only visit a dozen or so sites.
There are plenty of submission options that will
let you add your links to tons of bookmarking sites, both big and
A common blackhat tactic is to use "proxies"
(fake/multiple IP addresses) and multiple email addresses to create
multiple bookmarking accounts.
- Inexpensive, very whitehat. $29.95. However, the
makers of Socialbot often have sales around the time of holidays in the
USA when the price is lowered to $7.77. For $7.77 it's a good deal.
However I don't recommend paying full price for Socialbot.
Demon (affiliate link) - ($147) For
hard core bookmarking, I recommend Bookmarking Demon. Far more
powerful than the free/inexpensive applications above. But to get your
full value from BMD, you need to have plenty of sites, pages and other
resources to submit. Also, BMD has a learning curve.
There are also "trade" services, using the ol' "you
bookmark me, and I'll bookmark you".

"Pinging" in our context is simply telling other sites
that a page has been created or updated. There
are a number of sites that check for recent updates and a ping is a
quick "message" that basically says that a page has been updated, come
check it out.
Google not only accepts pings, but it also checks this
"ping" sites quite often, looking for updates. Pinging probably doesn't
have much linking benefit any more, other than to make sure that a page
gets indexed. But, being indexed is the first step in that page being
able to pass on link juice.
Wordpress and other other blog platforms have their own
pinging function. However, the built in feature in WP is limited and
can even be dangerous. It will ping every time you make an edit in a
page. So if you quickly edit a page a couple of times, you'll be
pinging just as often. This could cause the ping services to think you
are a spammer and ban your domain.
The built in WP ping function is also limited in the
services it pings. There are huge lists available if you google "recent
WP ping list" or similar. However, these lists are too big and require
too much from your host/server. They can also contain duplicates,
meaning you could be unintentionally spamming some services. Instead,
look for a list that has the top 20 or so ping services to use.
This list includes more services than are installed in
WP by default, covers all the major ping services, but not too many to
stress out WP.
Every time that you have create a new page or created a
new account on a blog or Web 2.0 site it's a good idea to ping the page
or site, just to help it get indexed.
1. Copy the URL of your profile page or blog
2. Click on one of the ping services
3. Paste your URL into the ping service and fill out the
Pinging tells some directories that a page has been
added, or modified, and to come check it out.
Google loves many of the sites in the ping services
lists, so it's a good way to help get pages indexed quickly.
Each time you add something new, Ping it. When you go to
one of the ping sites listed on the left, enter your URL. If you
use Ping O Matic or Pingoat, when the results page comes up, bookmark
this page and add it to another bookmark folder in Firefox.
Next time, all you have to do is open all the ping
bookmarks in tabs, and you'll automatically bookmark each page saved
this way. Don't over-do it. I would only use Pingoat and Ping O Matic
2-4 times in each bookmark folder.
If you only have a page or profile or two, use these
free services. I suggest you mix up the ping services and try to rotate
through each as you add more and more resources.
If you have a bunch of pages you need to ping, check out one of the
following "mass" pingers:
Device - A free online "mass pinger". Use if you have multiple URLs
Pinger The Mass Host Ping Tool - A good, free
Windows desktop program that
will ping a large list of URLs. Useful for pinging bookmarks, articles
submitted to directories using Article Marketing Robot, etc.
Submit All RSS Feeds and
Blogs to RSS Directories/Blog Rolls
time you create a blog, twitter account, article directory profile, Web
2.0 account, etc, you should check to see if it exports an RSS feed. If
it does, be sure to submit the feed to the popular RSS feed directories:
Thanks to Barb
for this little trick that creates an RSS feed for your Twitter
accounts. At the time I wrote this, Google was indexing and ranking
Twitter accounts. Having an RSS feed for your Twitter accounts can help
you build links to them. Plus, using RSS you can easily post your
Twitter feeds on WP blogs, etc.
First, you need at least two accounts. Twitter actually creates an RSS
feed for "lists". However, you can't put the Twitter account that
creates the list into the list itself. Therefore, use a second account
to add your first account (or multiple accounts of yours) to a "list".
Then grab the URL of the RSS feed for this list and submit it. This RSS
feed will contain tweets from all the accounts in the list.
Your RSS feed will use
TwitterAccount: Substitute the name of the Twitter account that created
ListName: Substitute the name of the list you created.
Note: Technically, this is a "atom" feed and not standard RSS, so it
may not work in all applications that accept RSS...But it's "close
enough" for many.
The following services are all indexing services that
basically the same way. They create RSS feeds for your links, then ping
those RSS feeds. They are worth checking out if you are using some of
the automated tools to create tons of accounts, article submissions,
Another great way to find links is to examine the links
the top competitors for your keywords use.
Use the backlink spy tools to discover how and where
they got their links. They reveal a lot of info about the links to
Enter the domain name/URL of your competition and check
out the results.
Then try to duplicate their efforts. Anywhere your
competition is, you want to be, if possible. Also,
see if there are any footprints to the backlinks they have. Is your
competition using bookmarks? Commenting on Wordpress blogs? Creating
forum profiles on certain forum platforms?
The Google searches above will find WordPress blogs with
two types of plugins:
The Recent Comments plugin:
"recent comments" "powered by wordpress" [keywords]
Top Commenters plugin
"top commenters" "powered by wordpress" [keywords]
They both do what they say they do...Recent Comments is
a plugin that takes the most recent comment made on the blog and
generally add a link to the person that made the last comment.
Top Commenters plugin works the same way, except it will
create a link to the person that has made the most comments on a blog.
When you find these blogs, you'll want to check and see how many
comments you need to make to become a "top commenter".
Both of these will give you links "site wide"...Meaning
every page on the blog will give you a link. If you find the right
blogs, you could get 100's of links very easily.
However, there is a drawback, and in most cases these
links will be temporary. New comments will be posted and someone will
make more comments than you, and your links will disappear.
Click on either link in the Left Frame and a general
search for each search will appear in this frame.
I suggest that you add a keyword or
two AFTER the search query you'll see in Google, then do another
search, to make your search more unique.
With both of these link strategies, you need to check
each blog and make sure you are getting links. Sometimes the owners of
the blog won't have a live link activated.
When viewing a blog, check the links after "Top
Commenters" or "Recent Comments" and see if they contain links to other
sites. Make sure the links aren't all pointed to the blog you are
If you can find a blog that isn't that active, had a
bunch of pages and uses one of these plugins, you can gain links very
quickly and they may last for a while.
Bookmark these blogs. They can be tremendous assets.
Automation Tip: I like to use Firefox for this
and create a folder just for these blogs. Every-so-often I will go to
my Firefox bookmarks and select the folder, then select "Open all in
tabs". This will open each blog in a different tab and I can quickly
navigate from one to the next, adding more comments as needed.
If you find good sites like this...DO NOT SPAM THEM!!!
They are giving you tons of free links. Do NOT force them to turn off
the plugins. Instead, take the time and make some helpful comments.
Use both of the footprints:
"top commenters" "powered by wordpress" [keywords]
"recent comments" "powered by wordpress" [keywords]
Enter both footprints, including some custom keywords, then use
Scrapebox to find blogs and blog pages with good PR.
Sort the list by PR, then run the dofollow/nofollow addon in Scrapebox.
This will let your search for WP blogs using the Recent Comments and
Top Commenters plugins, starting with the blogs with the highest
PageRank and that also use "dofollow" links.
This one's getting a little tougher and may be over-used
due to excessive usage by SEOers.
Wordpress MU...The "MU" stands for "multi user" and it's
a Wordpress plugin that allows the owner of a blog to give away free
WP blogs, in essence making the owner a little like Blogger.com.
By searching for these sites, you can create FREE WP
blogs on a wide variety of IP addresses. You don't need to pay for
domain names or hosting. The trade-off is you are defendant on the site
Because WP is free and WPMU is free, they are often
installed on "unprofessional sites". By this, I mean regular folks who
may not have the money or desire to keep things running smoothly. They
may even let their domain names expire. Therefore, there is a little
more risk with these sites in terms of longevity and the time and
effort it takes to find WPMU blogs...You'll run into quite a few WPMU
sites having some "errors".
However, there's still tons of potential from these
blogs. They make for great camouflages sites. They give you greater IP
diversity...So if you can find WPMU sites, you'll be able to create a
blog of your own for free.
When searching for WPMU blogs, you may want to try this
Do a search using the footprints below.
When the Google results page appears, click on the
"Show Options" link in Google. A column will appear on the left.
Click the "Specific Date Range" link
Enter a time period that is 3-4 years old, with the
newest time a year ago. This will try to locate WPMU blogs that are 1-4
years old. Older sites "may" be more stable. And they are definitely
more mature and likely to have more authority. You may not find any,
depending on your keywords, but give it a shot.
These blogs are WordPress blogs, so if you are familiar
with WP, then you will be totally comfortable with WPMU blogs, although
you do have less control. You can't change the templates or add plugins.
But you can add links to your posts and comments. And
most WPMU blogs create an RSS pheed, giving you yet another RSS pheed
to submit. Be sure to locate and save the URLs for your blog as well
as your RSS pheeds.
You can ping these blogs using the ping tools listed
Add your WPMU RSS feeds to your collection and submit
each and every one of them to the RSS directories.

vBulletin is a popular forum platform that offers an upgrade that
allows users to create their own blogs. This can be a very good
resource for link builders. And almost all of them give you an RSS feed
Here's a couple of footprints you can use to find vBulletin forums that
give away blogs:
“inurl:/blogs/all/" Powered by vBulletin® business + keyword
“inurl:/blogs/all/" Powered by vBulletin + keywords
You will want to submit your sites to various
directories. Sites hoping to become "authority" sites can and probably
should be submitted
to at least a few of the paid directories.
You don't need to submit every site to every directory,
and you shouldn't. However, you should try to get as many of your sites
a few dozen dozen directory links whenever possible. And try to mix up
the linking footprint so that each of your sites isn't in the same
Also, instead of just worrying about high PR (mistake),
try to find some niche directories you can submit to. To do this, get
creative with your Google searches:
"keywords" + "add URL"
"keywords" + "add link"
"keywords" + "add site"
"keywords" + "add your site"
"keywords + directory"
Use broader, more general keywords for this...And just
by changing keywords, you should be able to find a number of niche
directories, assuming you have a semi-popular topic. This should help
you find places to add your links that are relevant to your pages.
Directory Submission Resources:
Strongest Links - If you don't have any submission software, start
here. Includes paid and free web
Submitter - Semi-automatic software will submit to 350 directories
for free, upgrade to 2200 directories for $47.
Creating web site and blog templates to use for
marketing is a great way for artistic and creative marketers to promote.
From a linking point of view, there's two main benefits
for creating free site and blog
templates to give away.
1. Submit them to various free template directories and
get links to your site from the template directories.
2. Include your link to the bottom of the template. As
others add use your templates on their sites and blogs, they'll be
linking to you giving you the potential for site-wide links, unless
they remove the link. (Rumors are Google is
cracking down on this.)
Note: There are quite a few great CSS template
directories to also take advantage of, if you use CSS in your template
Most clipart sources do NOT give you the rights to include their art in
templates that you give away or sell to others. I suggest you only use
original art and graphics, or MorgueFile.com.
Morgue File has the most liberal usage rights you can find on the Net.
Note: Clicking on a link should open the site in
the right frame ==>
makes templates for all the platforms above.
Benefits to Template Marketing
In addition to submitting to the various
directories to build links, template marketing can be used in many
ways...Here's some thoughts to get your brain's creative juices
- Use as content for your own sites and
blogs. Just like writing articles, you can use templates and themes as
content to build sites and blogs around.
Example: If you have a dog training site
you are trying to promote, create a couple of dog related Blogger
templates. Next, create a Blogger blog that focuses on giving away your
dog related Blogger templates.
Same for WP themes, HTML, Drupal, etc. Use
a WP blog for WE themes, Drupal for Drupal templates, etc.
You can build a nice little network of
sites and blogs using templates as your main "content".
- Excellent for Bookmarking. Let's say you
have a WP blog that gives away some good looking WP themes. This is
PERFECT for bookmarking! Create the blog just for the purpose of
gaining "link juice", without any advertising on it. Now bookmark this
site and get some links. Then use this blog to link to your money
This is why building networks of sites and
blogs is so important and effective. And by using a blog to give away
blog templates, you can get away with getting links and bookmarking
more easily than you could if you were bookmarking your dog training
- JV with the major Authority sites in
your niche. Make some relevant templates and a link to your site as
well as their's in exchange for a link to one of your assets.
- Add promos in the download folder. For
example, you create a theme for WordPress. Include a html page that
links to affiliate programs that would appeal to WP bloggers, such as
plugins, ebooks, etc. Name this page using an exclamation mark (!) as
the first letter:
By using the ! in the file name, this will
make the page listed first when they open the folder. Plus, the ! draws
attention and adds importance. And by using .html files, your users can
easily just click on links. Make it as easy for them as possible.
This is essential, as not everyone that
downloads your templates will use them. If they just open the folder,
you have a chance to reach them using this marketing method.
- Sell yourself. If you have any skills
related to Internet Marketing, be sure to include your contact info in
your !ReadMe.html file.
- Trade ad space in your !ReadMe.html file
in exchange for a link to your download page.
- JV with someone with a good email list
that appeals to bloggers or webmasters and create a special, custom
package of templates just for his or her list members.
- Create Niche Themes. Think SEO related
keywords for template names, keywords, etc. Lean to the more popular
keywords as opposed to long tail.
- Be Timely. Think ahead and anticipate
seasonal themes like Christmas or Thanksgiving.
- Sell or give away packages of templates
with "resale" rights, hoping they will go "viral".
- Use templates as a way to build an email
list. Give away a small collection of templates in exchange for their
email address, then create more templates. Each time, email your list
announcing a new free template (along with your marketing message).
- Social Marketing. Just like email
marketing, use creating a new template as a legit reason to announce it
across all the popular social sites. Giving away a free template is far
less likely to be seen as spam than a pure marketing message.
- Make sure your templates and themes
are one of a kind. Use popular templates as inspiration, but don't
blindly copy them...This could get you in legal trouble.
- Use high-quality, vibrant graphics. While
normally you want to really optimize your graphics, your first priority
with template marketing is to catch the eye of potential users.
- Submit your templates to the correct
categories. Don't get your submissions deleted because you didn't
select the correct category.
- Drive traffic to the directories that
keep stats on the subject. Having your template become "popular" is a
great way to promote it.
- Include any exrta files with your
templates. Do you have photoshop files? Include them. Make it as
easy for others to modify your templates as possible.
- Make Up To Date Templates. If you create
a WP theme, make sure it is compatible with the latest version of WP.
Same with Drupal, Blogger, etc.
- Try other types of templates and themes.

Create Screen Savers and
Submit to Screen Saver Directories
Using your photos (or grab some relevant pics from MorgueFile), make them into a screen
saver and submit
to the various screen saver directories. Be sure to check the licenses
of the photos and graphics to make sure you're legal. Many of the
popular shareware/software sites have a category for screen savers.
Use keywords as your business name, as this will be your
anchor text. Also, 1 or 2 screensavers won't do much, you'll need to
create and submit dozens, as not all directories will link directly
back to you. But there are 100's of screensaver directories.
Screensavers can use graphics other than pictures...You
can get creative and use textures, clip art, and even
videos...ScreenSaver Factory will even let you use Flash files (I
Here, the primary goal is to build links, but if you
create quality screen savers, people will install and use them.
Factory let's you add links to your pages from the screensavers, giving
you opportunities for "desktop marketing. This is "PROBABLY" most
forums where you want repeat traffic.
Also, once you're done with your screensavers, it's
pretty easy to use the same graphics/photos to create videos using
Camtasia or other video software that
you can upload to YouTube, etc.
Of course you aren't limited to photographs to make
videos. Video camera, digital cameras and desktop recording software
all all options for creating content for videos.
The point is, you don't need "video", to make a
video. You can
use still pictures to create slideshows. Add some royalty free music,
quotes, jokes, tips, trivia and you've got yourself a video ready to be
uploaded to tons of places.
Of course, if you have videos, even better!!!
The do a google search for "free royalty free music" and add to your videos as
an intro or exit music to give them and extra touch.
The downside of video is how long it takes to upload
them to each account. If you create videos and submit it to 10
different sites, you will need to upload each video 10 different times.
So be sure to submit to only the most popular/biggest video sites.
Actually, I suggest you submit to the 5 or so biggest sites, then mix
up a couple of others sites to upload to from the list below, giving
your videos different linking patterns, as well as different viewers.
However, video sites can not only give you some serious
link juice, they can also give you viewers and traffic. At the time I'm
writing this, YouTube's search engine is actually the second most used
search engine on the Net, ahead of both Yahoo and Bing. Think about
Video marketing can be very rewarding for many...If you are serious,
consider using these paid services to speed things up...
Very similar to the screensaver concept is to create a
simple shareware/freeware program for your niche.
Then use PromoSoft to
submit it to over 700 shareware directories.
Free/shareware can also be great link bait, as you post
the download link on your site and others will link to it.
Studio allows you to create simple software programs. It isn't as
easy to use as the sales letter says it is. You will still need a good
grasp of programming logic and concepts to use Ubot. However, if you
have an idea for a simple program, you may be able to get someone with
Ubot to create a program for you fairly cheaply.
If you have an idea for a more complex piece of
software, or Ubot can't handle it, check out many of the freelancer
sites to see if you can get it done.
Create and Submit Widgets
Widgets are the "next big thang". To be honest, I'm just catching on
myself...So instead of giving you incorrect or incomplete info, here's
Google's SERPs for: How
to Create Widgets
If you can't program and don't want to hire
a programmer, you can quickly and easily turn a blog into a widget: WidgetBox.com
This is a blackhat technique to make content look as if
it is being updated so you can ping it...And pinging is a good thing.
The goal is to exploit ping sites so that our pheeds have the best
chance possible of being picked up by other sites.
I won't get into blackholes much in this report, but
will say a blackhole is designed to create unlimited RSS "updates"
using a variety of tactics. This allows the RSS pheed to be pinged over
If you understand the concept of "doorway" pages, a
blackhole is kind of a doorway page maker for RSS pheeds.
One of the main goals of a blackhole is to have your RSS
pheeds constantly indexed in all the RSS search engines that the big
time spammers/scrapers use. This means, they'll be using your RSS pheed
(content and links) on all of their pages, possibly creating tons and
tons of links to your pages, all on autopilot.
Nofollow tags are usually hidden in the html code, but
this plugin lets you see them without checking the page's code. Do note
that you have to select this option...Right click on the plugin's logo
at the bottom of Firefox and make sure to select "Highlight Nofollow
Links". If selected, any links that contain the nofollow tag will be
Posting on other's blog can not only build links, it can
give you direct traffic as well as branding.
One thing to note is that many blogs contain the
"nofollow" tag on their links. This means, that in theory, you won't
get "credit" in Google for the links. "nofollow" really isn't an
accurate name, as Google does follow these links, it just doesn't count
them...At least, that's the theory. There are more than a few SEOers
that don't worry about the "nofollow" tag and claim they still pass
I recommend having some "nofollow" links...You can still
get traffic by making good posts on popular blogs, plus not having any
"nofollow" links at all just isn't natural.
There's some programs that will find blogs automatically
for you, searching for blogs that meet a certain PR and/or don't use
the nofollow tag:
- Scrapebox sells for $97 on the Scrapebox homepage. However doing a google search for Scrapebox discount will reveal a
few places where you can get $40 off the regular price, making it $57.
For $57 I consider Scrapebox to be an essential investment for anyone
into SEO and linking.
Scrapebox has an automated comment posting (spamming) feature. But I've
never used it to post a single automated comment. There's no need.
Instead, using Scrapebox's powerful research capabilities to find
targeted, high PR blog posts to comment on MANUALLY is where the real
value is for Scrapebox.
Using Scrapebox for "white hat" commenting, you:
Enter some blog footprints and keywords
Scrape Google, Bing, Yahoo and AOL results for blog
posts based on your keywords
Run a PageRank check on the results
Run a nofollow/dofollow test on the results with low
Sort by PR and save as an HTML file.
Open the file in Firefox and use the "Open Selection"
to open about a dozen blog pages at a time.
Check to see which blog posts you can add USEFUL
IMO, this is the most powerful way to use commenting on blogs for SEO
and linking benefits.
Wikis can be sources of valuable links. And there's many wikis on the
web...Remember, wikis aren't limited to Wikipedia. However, in most
cases you will need to not only post high quality content, but also be
creative in finding ways to get your links to stick. For example, you
may have to create a page of excellent content in order to justify a
Here's some footprints you can use in Scrapebox or directly in
Google/Bing/Yahoo to find wikis for potential linking opportunities:
"Log in / createaccount"
"Login required to edit"
"There is currently no text in this page, you can search for this page
title in other pages or edit this page"
"This page was last modified on"
"Toolbox""This page was last modified
"isa registered trademark of the Wikimedia Foundation, Inc.,"
This page was last modified on""wiki"
Here's a list of active link exchange "clubs". I don't
recommend using only these services for your linking, but if you use
them in combination with many of the other strategies listed here, they
are a potent part of your marketing mix.
Private blog networks are a number of blogs all owned by the same
person/service, for the purpose of posting comments on in order to get
links. The blogs are usually set up on a variety of servers and hosts,
using multiple IP addresses.
They are a major convenience service, eliminating the time and effort
it takes to find blogs that will approve and publish your comments.
The major benefit, however, is that blog networks allow you to get
CONTEXTUAL links that appear in the content of the blog posts
themselves, instead of the "comments" section of a blog page. This is
an important and powerful difference.
Most have pretty high standards for the quality of your posts and some
require original, never-spun content. Most all of the networks have
very high standards for the sites they will accept.This is actually a
good thing, as it protects the entire network from poor comments and
IMO, blog networks don't work all that well by themselves. Where they
really excel is when they are included in a mixture of other linking
- (affiliate link) LinkVana lets you add posts containing a link to
site(s) across a vast network of blogs. You can write your own
post or pay for someone else to write it for you Dave Kelly is an
extreme SEOer and you're gaining access to his own network that took
years to create. Note: I'm an affiliate for LinkVana because I believe
in it and its owner, Dave Kelly.
After the Google Farmer/Panda update, using the major
article directories doesn't have the same impact for SEO as it did
However, I do believe that it can still be a helpful
your linking mix and adding a few articles to the major article
directories is a good addition to your linking campaigns. In addition
to the little SEO benefit you can get from the major article
directories, if you submit good articles there's a chance your articles
will be picked up and published on authority sites in your niche.
Having your articles "syndicated" by major sites can add a real boost
to your SEO/linking efforts.
IMO, you're probably best off just submitting to the top
3 article directories by hand and spending the time saved using
automated submission to the secondary article sites using a program
such as Article
My own experience has been that you need to submit to
these 3 major sites:
...is to find articles that have been re-posted from Ezinearticles.com.
If sites are publishing EZA articles, there's a good chance they'll
also take your stuff, especially if it's good and exclusive.
I suggest you try to make deals where you can include 2-3 in content
(contextual) links, in addition to your sig for maximum benefit.
-site:ezinearticles.com - This part of the footprint will
eliminate EZA's own pages from the
search results. Note the - at the beginning. Don't forget it, or else
all you'll get is EZA results, which is the exact opposite of what we
You can alter the footprint accordingly for other article directories.
Remember to exclude those directories by using the - sign just in-front
on the directory's domain in the search footprint.
While PageRank isn't perfect for detecting "authority", there's
probably some type of correlation between the two, and you may as well
start looking at sites beginning with the sites with the higher
Also, you can bypass EZA's waiting time and other hassles, as well as
control the sites your articles are posted on, which you can't do by
submitting them to EZA for syndication purposes.
And by finding your own sites to syndicate to, you create your own
By this I mean that instead of posting articles to
directories, you look for high quality, well-known and respected sites
and offer guest articles. You give the site free content and they give
you free, high quality links back to your site.
To find sites that accept guest articles, try searches
"keywords" + "guest author"
"keywords" + "submit articles"
Here's a more comprehensive Google query I "borrowed"
from Planet Ocean. Just
paste the whole thing into Google, and change "your keyword"
(in red) to your keywords:
"submit * article" OR "submit * articles" OR "add * article" OR "add *
articles" OR "featured writer" OR "featured writers" OR "featured
author" OR "featured authors" OR "featured contributor" OR "featured
blogger" OR "guest author" OR "guest writer" OR "guest blogger" OR
"guest post" OR "submit * tutorial"
Getting some links from highly respected authority sites
in your niche can do wonders for your links and your rankings and is a
linking method without a footprint.
Here's another footprint...This one you can use to find Wordpress blogs
that use the Article Directory plugin. These blogs accept articles and
often have "instant approval":

If you have some written content, it's pretty easy to convert it all to
audio. And once in audio format you can make podcasts. There's many
podcast directories that can be used for linking purposes, plus give
you some extra exposure. And once you have a good podcast, you can
submit it to iTunes for tons of possible exposure.
Creating a podcast is basically having audio files and learning how to
set up RSS feeds to tell people that you have a new podcast.
One suggestion is to take Private Label Rights (PLR) content and
convert it to audio podcasts. As audio, you don't have to worry about
it being duplicate content. If you have a decent mike and voice, just
read some relevant news (using your own words), then add the PLR
content for a nice podcast.
to Voice Converter Software converts documents into WAV audio
file. It lets you use PDF, Word, plain text, PowerPoint files, html/web
pages, and convert them to speech automatically.
articles and blog
posts into iPod audio automatically with Odiogo.com.
Since podcasts use audio files, they can be rather large
and take up space on your host/server. Here's a list of sites that will
host your podcasts for free:
Post PDF and/or Slideshow Versions of
Your Articles to:
Submitting content to "doc sharing" sites has major
benefits, including links and traffic. Try to have a link to your pages
and blogs on each PDF page. Many of these doc sharing sites also allow
affiliate links. When you have an option, be sure to use the PDF format
so Mac users can access your files.
Also, to get more downloads, be sure to include a "cover
image" for each PDF. And if the conditions are right for you, include
"giveaway" rights so your PDFs have a chance of going viral.
A major part of your linking strategy is to create your
own M A S S I V E link network.
By creating tons of pages across many hosting platforms,
not only are you creating linking opportunities, you're also creating
more pages, which means more words, which means more opportunity to get
more pages ranked for more keywords.
While these can be very
undependable, they can be of great help in expanding your network.
Throw a few pages up, then link in and link out. Remember: If you don't
FTP to your domain at least once every 30 days, most free hosts will
disable your account.
Again, just 20 pages on 10 different free hosts is 200
pages. If you put 20 links on each page, that's 4,000 more chances for
you to create links to all your other resources.
As soon as you can afford more hosting, you should always be looking to
expand, especially while building your linking network.
It isn't as easy as it seems, I have
had a less than 50% success rate with hosts. This means anything from
not getting log in passwords to cgi and or php not working, etc. But
it still can be a good way to increase your network exposure.
Again, the point here is that hosting 50 pages on each
of 10 cheap hosts, with 20 links on each page is 10,000 link
With this network of links, you'll be able to dominate
long tail niche after long tail niche, often within a day or two of
adding a new domain. And, you'll be very active in the
"semi-competitive" niches, as well.
Suggested Googles: (Note: Don't limit your
searches to only Google. Try all the engines to find cheap hosting.)
"Discount hosting" (cheap, budget, etc)
"cheap hosting + free set up"
"cheap hosting + free set up + $3.95" ($4.95, $5, $3.97, etc. The
point is, add some common low prices to help find low cost
hosting. If you want to pay $3.95 a month, search for "hosting + $3.95
If you have a reseller account, VPS or server, think
about trading hosting with others. This can be a fantastic way to
expand your IP base without any additional costs. Simply trade basic
hosting for similar services.
A couple of warnings:
Know and trust who your trade partners are. There is a
little risk to giving someone access to your hosting service. At the
very least they will know your niches just by the content you host on
their server. At the worst, they could be mass spammers or do illegal
Do not use "add on" domains, either for giving or
receiving. I won't go into the technical details, but addons are often
treated like sub domains by the search engines, depending on how the
server is set up, which isn't good for our purposes. If you can't set
up a "reseller" account, even for a single domain, then don't mess with
Press Releases -
Best used with link bait type pages. If you can come up with a
"newsworthy" and interesting article, a press release can be very
beneficial. Most major news outlets sites are very well respected and
getting a link from one of them can drive major traffic as well as give
a high trust link.
Also, you can gain some links just by having your
release included in the press release directories.
I'm not an expert with online press releases, but they
can play a vital role in your own linking campaigns. But I do know that
the more interesting and less promotional your press release is, the
more likely it is to be picked up by major media outlets.
Try this tip: Instead of writing boring stuff about your
site, pick a newsworthy topic, such as an anniversary of a popular
event. Write about the event, combining article and press release
styles. Then, simply refer to your site in the middle of the press
release as an expert or for a quote, adding a link.
These sites can pass on tons of link juice. In return, you must make
very high quality and relevant contributions. These are the type of
sites that if you don't have anything relevant to link to, you create
it just for the purpose of getting a link or two.
You can always buy links....But Google's really cracking down on this.
If you do go this route, I suggest you avoid public link selling sites
and instead approach the site
directly. Having said this, the right link on the right site can pay
off big time.
Be careful, there's a lot of fraud concerning the real
PageRank of a page. Be sure to check out the true PageRank using a
couple of different free Real
PageRank Checkers before giving anyone any of your money.
This is a bit sneaky, but we can clean it up a bit...And
you need to be aware of this concept, as many, many blackhatters
Have you ever seen a site or blog the displays the "top
referrers"? A referrer is another site that links to the blog or site. If
your link sends the most traffic, then your site's link is listed #1.
By using a "descriptive search" (I won't give the
specifics, you'll need to figure it out) locate sites and blogs that
display the "top" referrals. There are even some popular server
log/stat programs that give the general public access to these stats.
Find these pages indexed in the engines and you can get a link...
On a page of your's that gets good traffic, use an
iFrame with the dimensions of 1 pixel by 1 pixel so that their page is
accessed every time your page is, but isn't visible. This will appear
to make seem you are referring them traffic.
To clean this up a bit, actually include a link to them
on this page. However, it's still blackhat as you will be
inflating the REAL traffic you send as the iframe will load each time
your page is accessed, however this doesn't translate into a click on
their link each time.
There's usually a big difference between pages views and
click throughs, so you'll get "credit" from their site each time your
page is viewed.
Again, you want to be aware of this technique and make
sure you tighten your own sites' referral leaks. Do you have a Top
Refer script on your site or blog? Are your top referral stats
available/indexed in the search engines?
Promote Your Referrals- AKA promote the pages that link to you.
Make sure any page that sends you traffic is indexed.
It's one thing to get a link, it's another to make sure that link is
Look at your site stats and make a list of every URL
that has sent you traffic. Create a page on another site/blog
containing all the links and submit it to the search engines, ping it,
This is particularly effective with older sites. It's
possible you already have tons of links from other pages, but those
other pages aren't indexed. Make sure they are.
This is a major advantage for those that will take the
time. If you have an established site, I'll guess that 30-50% of
your links aren't indexed and it's probably easier to get those pages
indexed than to go out and try to get the same number of links.
Also, if you submit a press release or an article to a
directory, find those pages/URLs and link to them from your own pages
you know get spidered and are indexed.
Create something like, "see our keyword press release"
and/or "see our syndicated keyword article.
Apply the same strategy for any photos, software,
templates, screen savers you submit. Find the pages that link to your
stuff and grab those URLs and add them every place you can, including
your "One Big RSS Pheed" .
You want to link to your links as
much as possible.
Instead of putting all of your effort into building
links, ration some of your time making sure your existing links are
actually indexed and you are getting all the link juice you can.
In some cases, a few links to your articles on an
article directory can give THAT page a good boost in the engines.
Optimization and linking isn't just for your own sites, but for any and
all of your assets.
Also, sign up for Google Alerts and any time you find
your site mentioned /linked to in a good way, add links to those pages
to your network.
Contests can be great for getting links. Not only can
they be submitted to contest directories, they are a great form of "link
bait" and can payoff many times the cost of the prize in free publicity
Contests are also a natural for press releases. Plus,
start a contest for content for your site. $100 for the "best article
about ____ " can generate pages and pages of content.
When creating a contest, just be sure to post your rules
and terms. If you're having a contest for the best article on "dog
training", tell people you are the only judge, that they can enter as
many articles as they want, and that you have the rights to publish all
After you create a contest, add them to these contest
Link Wheels, Link Pyramids,
Mini Nets and Web 2.0 Sites
In about 1997, Michael Campbell wrote "Revenge of the Mini Nets". It
was about how to create a network of sites and inter-link them. A
decade later some folks think they reinvented the "wheel" when they
came up with fancy terms such as "link wheels" and "link pyramids". No
matter the name, they're really just mini nets.
Typically today, most folks refer to link wheels as a network built
with Web 2.0 sites. Some claim they don't work any more, while others
claim they are still going strong. The truth is, you can build a mini
net with any type of sites, it's just today there as so many free
options that it makes sense to use them.
In general, a link wheel has the sites linking to one other site, which
links to one other site, etc:
Squidoo => Blogger => Wordpress => Your money page
And a link pyramid has all of the 2.0 sites linking to your money page,
but not to each other:
Squidoo => Your money page
Blogger => Your money page
Wordpress => Your money page
IMO, people get into trouble when they link a site to another with very
similar content, even if the content is spun. They also will use the
same user names for each account. These user names are often the URL
for the account. So on one account you have CamperJohn linking to
another CamperJohn on another site, with either the same content or spun
Also, be sure to add other types of media besides just text, such as
relevant pictures and videos. This seems to really help SEO, plus
there's a saying "If it looks like spam, it's probably spam." Just
adding a pic and/or a video to your 2.0 content goes a long way to
protecting your assets from human eyes.
I also believe it's best to mix up the linking patterns...It's OK to
cross-link a couple of 2.0 sites, just don't do it all the time.
Another powerful use of 2.0 sites is to use them as buffer sites to
protect your money sites. For example, you want to test out the latest
"Link-O-Matic" program but don't want to risk your money sites getting
banned. Use a 2.0 site instead. Point the links at it. As it
(hopefully) gains link juice, you will pass that juice on to your money
sites by linking to them.
Never put Adsense on a site you are testing
aggressive linking tactics! Actually, it's best to give all your sites
some time to "mature" before adding Adsense.
Be careful with some 2.0 sites. Blogger, Squidoo,
Hubpages and possibly others have closed accounts due to "excessive
linking". I believe this comes from real people reporting spam, such as
spammy blog comments as opposed to some type of automatic detection
using software, but I'm just guessing.
Remember: The older a resource is and the more work
you put into it, the most conservative you should become with your
linking efforts. On the other hand, you must take gambles and test
different strategies and software programs to take full advantage of
all opportunities. But do your testing on new accounts that you've
added just a little content to.
After you have your money site(s) set up, the next thing you should do
is get 5-20 Web 2.0 sites added to your mini net.Then ping, bookmark and submit the
Many years ago, I theorized that Google would some day include human
elements in how they rank pages. I called this "People Rank" and it
seems that the activity of people is playing a large role in how Google
ranks pages via the major social sites.
In addition to the SEO potential of social sites, they offer the
possibility of a "double whammy" in that they can also drive traffic
directly to your pages.
Despite sites like Twitter having "nofollow" links, it's pretty clear
that Google not only follows Twitter links, but in some cases gives
links in Twitter a lot of "juice".
One example seems to be Google loves links that have been "retweeted"
many times. It also seems to like links that have been "liked" or given
other social "proof".
And even though sites like Twitter have "nofollow" links, you find many
Twitter accounts with very high PageRank. Note: Twitter has been
changing the URLs of Twitter accounts alot over the past 6 months. It
seems the apply a redirect, then it takes Google a month or two to
Again, this can change almost daily, but at the time I'm writing this
(Jan. 27, 2012), Dr. Mani's Twitter account page has a PageRank of 5. I
bring this up because I believe much of the PageRank is from internal
pages, specifically when people follow other people creating internal
And it's this ability to follow others in Twitter, add friends in
Facebook, etc., that creates an opportunity to leverage internal
links. If you follow 1000 people and have 1000 followers in
Twitter, you have 2000 internal Twitter links pointing at your account
Yes, I admit this is theory. But there is some pretty good
circumstantial evidence that Google is giving credit to "likes",
"retweets" and internal links on the major social sites. And because
you can also get traffic directly from these sites, I believe you
should look to incorporate them into your SEO strategy.
a free site that acts like a central control panel for a number of
social and web 2.0 sites. By simply logging into Ping.FM you can
automatically post to any or all of the accounts you have set up in
The first thing you need to do is create accounts at the
Ping.FM compatible sites. After you have create the sites, you
give the login info such as username and password to Ping.FM.
One consideration is that if you choose to post to more than one
account at a time, you will have duplicate content. Sometimes this may
be OK and other times you may want unique content across your accounts.
I suggest you mix it up, even to the point of creating multiple Ping.FM
Also, you don't need to sign up for every compatible account. Sign up
for the biggest ones and maybe a few others, just to mix things up.
Ping.FM also gives you the ability to add an RSS feed. When the RSS
feed updates, so do all of your selected Ping.FM accounts. There's many
uses for this...One is setting up a Wordpress blog and using your
blog's RSS feed to update Ping.FM. Now anytime you update your blog you
can update your network of sites automatically.
Ping.FM is worth investing some time learning how to use it best for
your own situation. Pick an afternoon to create your accounts, then
another afternoon just messing around with Ping.FM. It's a very
powerful free service that will save you tons of time in the future.
Scrapebox gets has a bad reputation as a blog comment spammer. I admit,
it can be used to spam. But I have NEVER used it to spam a single site
and I still think it's an essential piece of software for an SEOer to
Here's one wa Scrapebox can really pay off...I won't go into exact
details, but here's the general concept: Let's say you have created an
account on a site like Twitter, Facebook, etc., that allows you to
"follow" or "add friends".
One way to get a good PageRank for you own account is to follow/friend
those that have high PageRank for their own accounts. Here's how:
In Scrapebox enter:
site:TheDomain.com + keyword
Note: The keyword above is optional...
Click: "Start Harversting"
After Scrapebox collects the URLs, run a Check PageRank => Get URL PageRank for each URL.
Sort the list by PageRank. This will give you a list of accounts with the highest PageRank for that keyword.
Repeat with other keywords, if you want/need.
Follow/friend these accouns. Even if they don't follow you back, you can still leverage some of their link juice.
Everyone is different, with different skills, interests,
talents, resources, money to spend and niches. This makes it impossible
for me to give "one size fits all" suggestions on how YOU should
proceed with your business.
However, start with:
- A good, quality site.
- Setting up 10-20 Web 2.0 sites and blogs
- Set up Twitter, Facebook, Linkdin and Myspace accounts.
- Hook up these accounts on Ping.FM
- Gather as much content as you can.
