Internet Search Engine Optimization: Backlinks
As you develop online content, you will quickly learn that your content is worthless without readers. In order to develop visitors and readers to your pages, regardless of whether income is your motivation, you simply must learn some basic search engine optimization techniques.

This isnt an article about search engine optimization, it merely focuses on one service that will facilitate your early backlink efforts. If your visiting from outside of Hubpages, go away!

What is SheToldMe: make Money from Pay Per Click Advertising
SheToldMe functions in much the same way as Digg or StumbleUpon and other Social Bookmarking sites you should be some what familiar with.
With two distinct differences:
- You are encouraged to submit your own content
- You can generate revenue through a Pay Per Click Advertising partnership
SheToldMe allows you to profit via:
- Google Adsense
Go ahead and sign up for both those programs, they are both pay per click advertising tools that allow you to earn from associated ads.Chitika has the unique ability of existing within Google Adsense TOS, as it is "search based advertising" it is allowed on the same page as Adsense! Because the ads are targetted not from your content, but rather from what the searcher entered into their search box, the ads are usually very relevant and my clickthrough is steadily in the 4-5% region
Submitting a Scoop
If you have both your advertiser accounts, now go ahead:
Now that you have a shetoldme account and partnerships with the associated advertisers, be sure to enter your codes into the "My Adsense ID" field, both the Chitika box and Adsense are located there..in adsense your id will be ca-pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXX , and in chitika it will be your user name.
SheToldMe requires a 200 character minimum description and a title and category.
Heres the trick that makes this not just a backlink, but a real earner!
Head over to the Adwords Keyword Tool:
Now select the Website content option, and insert your URL that you plan to "scoop"
Adwords will deliver a list of Keywords that it registers from your content, using the highest earners describe your content with THE KEYWORD PHRASES . make it readable, but your purpose is either to generate revenue or traffic to your article, neither which will be accomplished by leaving your visitor on your "scoop"..drive em away! if they pick google or chitika over your content, than if you selected your terms right...you should be seeing over $1 per exit!
Thats it, get a permanent backlink and get great revenue for minimal effort. You can also time your "scoop" to coincide with trends in the search world, Google treats the newly indexed submissions as "news" and ranks them very highly for a short time.
So dont be surprised if your "scoop" outranks your Hub or article for a short time, it wont stay that way...I wish it was that easy!
You will notice an amazing increase in how fast your original articles are indexed! You can also use this tool to test out variations in keyword phrasings, by also using tracking in adsense to see how many impressions you get for slight variations. You could actually backlink an article as many times as you had trackers installed here at hubpages! This isnt for better earnings, but can be used for testing
Familiar with the backlink system now?
Spend a half hour or so and backlink ALL your old hubs and in the future add this quick submission to your final tasks when you publish a hub or article.
After that you should learn about other similar opportunities to get paid to backlink your own content
You should take the time to track your individual traffic sources, if not at the URL level, than at least at the site level, add www.shetoldme.com to oyur channels in the adsense console
