Better Search Engine Ranking through Adsense Revenue Sharing Sites | The Truth | 60DC

Updated on January 13, 2012

Increase your search results ranking through adsense revenue sharing sites

Number and quality of backlinks is a major factor when trying to  increase your search results ranking. The scramble to find backlinks often sends writers and marketers on searches for related forums, comment forms, answer sites and of course the holy grail of receiving natural organic links as a reward for providing useful information.

What people soon find is that there is only so much time in the day and many of these activities can be draining and monotonous, plus it can be a bit of a gamble, will this site I took the time to post on continue to exist? will its quality remain strong?

Who knows.

In an effort to capitalize on this trend a niche has developed in the online marketing and promotion world that allows writers and marketers to create small blurbs on partner sites and share in the income that these small blurbs create via adsense and other advertising options.

Its a good partnership and a strong concept , the site owner gets free content and the writer gets a backlink.

Do Adsense Revenue Sharing SItes actually increase search engine ranking?

When you search and look around for information about these sites you will see far more positive spin than bad. Articles always have hot words like "Get Traffic" and 'Make Money" or 'Easy backlinks"

Its true that all of these terms are relative to the adsense revenue sharing social bookmarking phenomenon , But is your time well spent when you pursue these various sites? Do they in fact increase your search results? You can make money, but is the earning potential worth the time expenditure , time that can be spent writing a whole new article or developing a stronger promotion method?

List of Adsense Revenue Sharing | Social Bookmarking Sites

The truth about Adsense Revenue Sharing and Backlinks

When you go through reading about these sites and all the glowing recommendations that abound, keep in mind that the sign up link has a little referral tracker added more times than not.

 You are rarely getting an unbiased opinion!

 A very common misconception, misinformation, misunderstanding that one will often see repeated is something along the lines of "Get PRx " backlinks with some high number strewn in there. The PR of the domain has little to no bearing on the value of the backlinked page.

Truth: you are getting a PR 0 Backlink no more, and it is not likely to ever gain much authority 

I say this, but I myself have recommended (and still do) a handful of these sites almost a year ago with "Seo Tips - earn from your backlinks" and I did this after many months of experimenting.

Truths: Real reasons to use the adsense revenue sharing sites

Truth: Even low quality backlinks such as the ones that the adsense revenue sharing sites provide are better than no backlinks at all.

Truth: The unattractive ad heavy nature of these "blubs" "xombytes" etc are conducive to clickthrough for either your ads or your content. If one writes their blurb in a very heavy keyword focused manner they can influence high priced returns with very little possible dilution.

"Adsense revenue sharing sites can be used for better search engine ranking. Search engine results are influenced by backlinks. Backlinks at adsense revenue sharing sites can lead to increased earning and represent another traffic source. See more about better search engine results via adsense revenue sharing sites" 

Truth: These sites can be used for keyword experimentation

Sites such as Xomba that provide statistical tracking can act as quick testing grounds for variations in your keyword terms. The sites that allow  actual adsense id integration can be set as URL channels and may also help with your data collection procedures.

Truth: The readers at sites like Xomba, SheToldMe etc. are often people just like you - a market that is looking for ways to make money online, write for money and get traffic to websites. If your content fits into those categories, you may actually get real readers and internal traffic from the site. Otherwise, these sites are not frequented by your target viewers.

Truth: Very few of these sites ever get first page results. With the notable exception of Xomba, these sites do not get long term first page returns. Xomba does for low to medium competition terms but is in fact a nofollow site (yet is my biggest earner among rev share bookmark sites) SheToldme often stands a chance also. Even if they do not earn, these little sign posts all pointing to your content appearing in high in search engine ranking is good for business.

Truth: It is possible that the use of your adsense id at these backlink sources will lead to a devaluation of the backlink

Truth: Redgage isnt a true adsense rev share site and seems to love to give all new members $25 on a gift card.

"For every fact there is an infinity of hypotheses. "

So whats the point?

The process of using these adsense revenue sharing sites for social bookmarking is so mind numbingly easy, it may be worth  your time if it is something that can be done quickly and without over complications for you. If you can spit out some generic teaser heavy in keywords to each site with perhaps some online radio or an audiobook going - then spend the time and swing through the list.

But, if your more of a perfectionist who will fuss through the whole process, your time is better spent developing content at various sources , backlinks and content that actually have a chance to age and develop and continue to rise in authority as laid out here:

Ultimate Writers Link Wheel Tutorial

Optimally, I would hope to fall in the middle, in moments where the words come hard or attention is thin, put on your bookmark hat and some entertainment and plod through a set of links. You will soon find your favorites and come to understand them. If your full of creativity write a new related hub or an article at another writing site that links to your hub. Use the tool that fits your needs at the time ...but dont fall for the hype that nay of these social bookmark sites are the end al or be all ..its a great way to start yourself on the path of developing backlinks and experimenting but dont stop there.

      You can also add to the list for backlinks - although we require 400 word/2,000 character minimum (whichever is less) unique articles, you can get a do-follow backlink, and every article is indexed and promoted fairly fast so the backlink really counts.

      Plus, we share 70% Adsense and Amazon revenue, and 25% for referrals.

      I prefer to do article writing and guest blogging over backlink submission, always seems to pay off much more for me!

      I didnt realize there are so many social bookmarking sites out there. One question though, is it a good idea to backlink to your profile itself or just to articles?

      you are right, no backlinks is not a good as one backlink, so It's a toss up in a way, as you need some backlinks and these sites allow for it. You will just have to remeber why you are adding there in teh first place.

      Nice summary Sunforged. I have to admit that backlinking is one of my least favorite things to do, and so I do it in spurts, and surely not enough. I am not ready to spend money on a high end backlinking system yet, getting close, so I still do all my backlinking by hand through blogs, bookmarking, and a few sites that you have mentioned above.

      I am just much happier writing content then doing the backlinking, and my time is so limited.

      I could add Triond but I have very little personal experience - I dont rec anything I havent tested myself

      You can add Triond to the list. There is no word limit in Triond, so it is possible to use it to get backlinks. The best use is to write a short introductory article, and link back to the main article.

      Hi Sir SF, I joined some of these sites but need to join the others, mainly for backlinking, At the moment, between building blogs and posting it to yousaytoo and zimbio etc, my hands are full,

      This hub is helpful and thank you. I bookmark it, Maita-

      No, Mr Search - do as you wish at a cheesy adsense rev site, be careful and quality focused on your own page

      Be careful when writing something "keyword focused" as in truth #2 that it doesn't become something "keyword stuffed". Search engines like keyword rich content, but once you cross the threshold into stuffing, they penalize instead of rewarding.

      Otherwise, very nice article. Thanks for the list of revenue-sharing sites.

      SF, Dofollowdigg is no longer a adsense revenue sharing site. I mean I have I registered there before 5 months and they not even asked for my adsense id. It does not even show option to enter it. All I could find was this link:

      They also have no ads from google on their site. So I guess they have stopped sharing revenue now, but still a good source for backlink!!!

      SF this Hub could not come at a better time for me. With all the RSS feeds and blogs I am creating I am forgetting that this is another important step. Personally Red Gage so far for me has been the easiest. I think it is the way the site is set up along with the huge welcome I got (from so many other Hubbers over there). Xomaba is ok , but the site itself is not so 'friendly' but easy enough to get a blurb out. Last night I finally got my 'acceptance' from SheToldMe and I have Natasha holding my hand through it, which I think a little hand holding will help me drastically as the site itself just seems to be a big ball of a too much going on, and to wade through you need patience.

      These last few weeks patience is not something that I have any exra reserve for:)

      But onward I go. You can bet I will read this Hub a few more times .. lol . . until I "get" it.

      If you were to pick just a few sites to make an effort at and follow through in tracking how performance is effected in relation to hubs articles that are not bookmarked you will find that shetoldme and xomba are the top choices for the "easy low quality backlink method'

      Sunforged, Very nicely written.

      I had often wondered about how affective these sites where in helping my campaign. I have also noticed that quite often shortly after publishing a hub that Xomba and SheToldme would outrank my hub. After a weeek or so that they would slowly fall of as my hub started to gain. I had taken this as an indicator that my hub is getting at least a little bit of linkjuice from this site...

      Thank you for your interesting and informative hub and especially being so kind to help. I signed up with Snipsly but struggle to put the info on. After a few, I have to stop because my computer slows down so much it is a waste of time. It shows a message to that effect. Also LinkIn I can't figure out how to put a content or URL there to point to my hubs.

      Very good hub my friend. I go about backlinking a little differently. I pay for a high end back linking service. I get a ton of quality back links using this. This is what works for me and I love using it.

      Again very well written hub my friend
