    Where do you normally post to establish backlinks?

      I get bored backlinking so I don't really do much about it.  I usually only use twitter and facebook.  Yesterday I started with shetoldme.com and friendfeed.

        Are you still making money though?

          Yes, I do.  I don't do much marketing at all.  At the start I only had internal views (hubpages only) now it seems to be picking up in search engines and external sites without me having to do much about it. 

          I only joined friendfeed this morning because I noticed yesterday that I had quite a number of incoming views from that site.

      I use software for all of my backlinking campaigns. It saves a lot of time.

    some suggested sources

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Increase-Your-T … follow-PR6 - a dofollow backlink list  ryankett

    http://hubpages.com/hub/backlinking   darkside on backlinking

      Thanks sunforged. Those links are great resources. Especially the first one which you wrote, not to take away from darkside's hub one bit.

        sunforgedposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        well  my hub doesnt speak much on the overall concept of backlinking...it just shows a quick method to get people started in the process

        Darksides is more informative in a holistic nature and a great resource for new users

        once one is indoctrinated into the BL purpose than Ryans hub has a bunch more sites you can use easily...make your decision about the worthiness of PR at bookmarking sites (your link willnever be more than a 1)

    There are a lot of people who have achieved some great success without worrying about backlinking.  Some of my most successful sites have been ones which I have done the least backlinking on!

    1. sunforged profile image72
      sunforgedposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      either a fluke
      or well planned research
      or sites that would do better with a backlink campaign and could probably be easily conquered if anybody else ever challenges that niche.

      or you wrote so well other felt the desire to create natural backlinks for you


      Certainly, not a good strategy for long term success...there are a lot more people who dominate whatever niche they desire by well planned and thorough backlink promotion

      correlation does not imply causation

        Silver Roseposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Kind of agree. You can get away with no external backlinking if there is a huge quantity of internal backlinks pointing to your hub.

        But you are vulnerable to someone coming along and beating that with a wide variety of external links.

      So as your profile reads your into seo consultancy.

      Are we to assume that in your wisdom and thorough knowledge of seo that there is no need to for backlinking then?

      Is that one of your seo tips?

      I'd be interested to know if you have actually had any consultancy to do.

  4. thisisoli profile image71
    thisisoliposted 8 years ago

    I am not saying that backlinking is not important, but sometimes success can sometimes come from unexpected angles!

    Backlinking does not guarentee Google placement, there are lots of aspects to consider, and Backlinks are merely part of that.

    1. TerryGl profile image60
      TerryGlposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      So what your saying is you build a site and put it on hosting and leave it then?

      Is that right, because I really cannot see any other way to promote that site without a backlink of some sorts.

    hi Lyrics!

    Terry,

    No I didn't and I don't think you should put words in my mouth.

    Other things that influence serps include, but are not limited to

    Keyword density
    Keyword count
    Page quality (Outgoing links on page)
    Keyword in Domain
    Keyword in URL
    Domain Extension
    Meta Tags & Description
    Font Size and attributes
    Images & Alt text
    Internal links
    loading speed of page
    Frequency of Updates
    Age of site
    Spelling and Grammar

    and these are just some of the known factors that can affect serps, Google has stated that they use over 200 factors in their ranking formula, if backlinking was the only thing to affect pagerank, than PR1 websites would never see the light of day, and PR8 websites would have cornered even the most obscure of keywords.

    Only PR is directly linked to number of backlinks & their quality, but it is also well regarded that PR does not guarantee high search engine placements.

    And I am currently working for a London restaurant and a mens fashion magazine in my SEO capacity.

    I dont usually put in effort to backlinks to hubpages. Once in a while, when I am the mood, I create a blog post to get links to a few hubs.  Other than that, the traffic comes in naturally.

        Just wanted to ask, when you post a link to she told me, do you copy/ paste your first paragraph in the 'scoop description' or do you write new original stuff to describe your hub? thanks in advance! smile

          skyfireposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Always write unique content on the sites where you create backlink, this is good practice. Much better way is to write 200-250 word article in short that is related to your hub or site and then slip the link inside it.

          1. myownworld profile image75
            myownworldposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            smile thanks for that! It's one of those things no one really explains when mentioning back links, so cheers!

    1. Drwibble profile image60
      Drwibbleposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I have a hub with a table of revenue sharing sites for backlinks with their affiliates, dofollow and what sort of links they accept. I won't post the link but it is called "Ultimate Collection of websites for backlinks and traffic"

      As I come across new revenue sharing website that I use for backlinking they will be added here.

    2. skyfire profile image72
      skyfireposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      - shetoldme(dofollow)
      - yousaytoo (nofollow)
      - webanswers(nofollow)
      - xomba (nofollow)
      - today.com(dofollow)

      all the above mentioned sites are adsense revenue sharing sites.

    I've been trying
    fb, twitter, ff, reddit (good), xomba, digg and blogs smile
    But... I'm pretty lazy about it and most of my traffic is HP, Google and Yahoo!

    I have got so sick and tired of backlinking the manual way that I paid 147 for software that does it automatically. I have a lot more time now and see quicker results.

    1. IzzyM profile image87
      IzzyMposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I don't have a spare 147 sad
      It's a vicious circle. You write to make money and you can get quicker returns if you pay out yet more money on software to promote your links, but until you get some return for your writing, you can't afford to pay out!
      I just spent two whole days backlinking and hardly got anything done. It's just so time consuming, and I am normally online for 12 hours a day.

      1. Misha profile image71
        Mishaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        You don't have to shell out $147 at once. You can start as low as $5 a month, and when you start making money add more expensive options. smile
