5 Websites to Get Free Backlinks

Updated on August 14, 2011


RitePad is still a new website. It is growing and looks promising. You can get a backlink there by writing just a 100 word post. Similarly, you can place a maximum of two and three backlinks on 200 and 300 word posts respectively.

You also get 80% of the total ad impressions generated on your content.


SheToldMe is more of a bookmarking website where you write a short summary of your article and then post a link with some additional information. They also have a revenue sharing model where your ad units and SheToldMe ad units are placed on the same post every single time. This is different than most other websites of the sort which share ad impressions.


Snipsly is another wordpress based website like RitePad. They also look great and have a revenue sharing model where you get 80% of the Adsense impressions. The website also has many other cool features like Google Analytics, contests etc.


Don't expect to make a lot of money on InfoBarrel, but it is a great backlinking tool. Write 300 word articles and place two backlink to your stuff. If you want more visibility of your article, make it a 400 word article.


Squidoo is a great website for backlinks and they have a revenue share model also where you get 50% ad impressions on your content. They are one of the pioneers in this field and a well managed website.

Choose the best one!

I just reviewed these five websites for you. Each one of these has a revenue sharing model and allows its members to add backlinks. Now, you can choose whichever suits you the best.

      Ritepad is no longer a functioning website, just a holding page for the domain reseller.

      Sniply is still going but I got two nasty pop ups on my first visit, one trying to convince me to part with a few hundred dollars for a "get paid by Google" bizkit

      Don't think I will be using any of those two sites, thanks!

      Infobarrel and Squidoo are still going though, I have mature accounts on both and some of my articles rank well.

      Maybe this hub is due a little spring clean?

      Kind Regards

      Maybe the squidoo backlinks weren't indexed by searche engines when you checked. Softwares normally show backlinks indexed by the search engines.

      Great hub, I particularly like the fact that it includes relevant information that is recent and update to date.

      Although, I will note that I checked out Shetoldme and I think they have closed registration. Thanks again.
