Need A Free Backlink? :)

    I'm temporarily closing this thread, I severely underestimate the amount who would apply.

    I'm up to my ears in submissions and in order to deliver on my promise on timely inclusion, I'm going to have to put a stop to the inclusions (until they've all been done)

    Thank you all for being so responsive and supportive!

    Paul Deeds made a good point about linking schemes here,

      I am neither exchanging links or asking for reciprocal links. How is what I am offering different from any other social bookmark?

      I am offering a free one-way link. Not a scheme smile

        The actual Google page that the link Paul posted goes to talks about more than that.

          I'm aware of that relache, but I still don't see how I fit in.  If you ar suggesting that the links gained are of low quality, you may be right. But they are certainly not harmful.

    Thanks for the link thooghun.

    @relache, if there was a requirement to link back to www. best-of-hubpages. com/ or any another site in return for the link then it would be a linking scheme, but there isen't.

    1. thooghun profile image82
      thooghunposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Ok look, I am attempting to offer what I thought would be a useful and free service (my rant isn't directed at you Peter), there is NO hidden agenda. There are no negative consequences, real or imagined. This is not a scheme.

      It has been done by other Hubbers who own personal blogs, and they have been applauded for offering the service. Instead, I find a highly skeptical and suspicious welcoming committee.

        Peter Hogganposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Please don’t think I am one of the skeptical and suspicious, I have posted a bookmark. Just curious though, how long it take for links to be published.

          20 minutes.

    I tried to check his site out but it won't show up is it a real website?

    1. Diane Inside profile image80
      Diane Insideposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      okay got it, can't cut and paste, there is a space where there shouldn't be.
      checked the site out. requirements say description must include a single self serving link what is that?

      1. thooghun profile image82
        thooghunposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Diane, I added spaces to the URL so that it wouldn't be clickable (to show that I'm not after a cheap backlink).

        A single self-serving link is a link in the desciption of your hub that points wherever you want it to. In short, I don't want spammy descriptions, you already get a one-way link as it is!

        1. Diane Inside profile image80
          Diane Insideposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          so if you don't have one you can't use it?

          1. thooghun profile image82
            thooghunposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            Of course you can smile  I prefer descriptions with no links at all!

    Not from all of us. I sent you a link. Every backlink helps as far as I am concerned smile
    I'll send more tomorrow smile

    No need to answer, the link is live and indexed by Google. Thanks again. That took about 20 mins in total. Personally I hope that everyone else remains skeptical tongue

    1. thooghun profile image82
      thooghunposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, the blog is indexed very rapidly and ideally this service is of use to newer hubs. Older hubs won't benefit too much.

      On a side note, I'm queuing the rest of the submissions for now, otherwise I'm going to be spanked by Google!

      The queue will resume tomorrow morning (its 2.18am here)

      Thank you everyone!

    I tried to add a link, but it was denied. The error message said my link was spam!

    1. thooghun profile image82
      thooghunposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Now that is strange, it seems everyone else's got through. Send me a regular email via Hubpages and I'll do it manually.

  11. habee profile image94
    habeeposted 7 years ago

    Was I supposed to add a 50-word description like it said? I did. I then followed it with a link to the hub. Did I do something wrong??

    1. thooghun profile image82
      thooghunposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Nope. I have no idea what went wrong. Send me the info via Hubpages and I'll do it manually, although its time to sleep for me now wink

    Thank you so much for the opportunity, it's very generous of you. I've just completed my first month here and need all the help I can get.

    I submitted two hubs. Hope that's ok.

    Thanks again
