Is sponsoring a designed web template a good way to get one-way backlinks?
I just recently decided to try sponsoring a Wordpress theme as a way to get backlinks to my site. Has anyone else tried this and if so, what has been your experience?
As someone who uses and is grateful for free and sponsored templates, I try to make sure that the authors' links are intact and work properly. So while I can't tell you how much business those authors ultimately get from those links, I can say that my analytics reports show that visitors to my sites click on those links.
As a user, I do visit those authors' sites to check out their blogs, ask questions, look at what they have to offer, and sometimes buy templates.
I think the key thing is to make sure your theme works really well. If the design is good and the theme doesn't create problems for users, over time you will get plenty of backlinks.
i wouldn't do it. Footer links means thousands of links from the same page on whoever uses your template. So it will be the exact anchor text each time. They would look suspicious to me if i was a robot.
By sponsoring the footer link of the Wordpress themes is a good way to diversify your external links. You get links from different class C IPs which are good in the eyes of Google.
If you want to get the backlinks for your food related websites than you should sponsored only those themes which are related to the Good and recipes.
But recently (As Matt) saying footer links will have less importance.

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

I was reading through the FAQ and one thing that stuck out for me was the fact that after your Hubber Profile score reaches 75 or higher your website link on your profile is supposed to change from nofollow into dofollow. The links on my profile are all still nofollow links (I checked with inspect...

There are many .edu and .gov sites at the moment that allow a back link through either a blog dofollow comment or forum profile dofollow link.I have about three hundred such links that are auto approved in joining the forum or making a comment. ( I know, the list is gold).My question is, has anyone...

I know it fluctuates depending on a billion variables...but for you hubbers here who are making decent money, how many backlinks do you create for each hub. Please specify between social bookmarkting, article marketing on directories like ezine, blogging and commenting on blogs.Thanks!

I discovered RedGage a few days ago. You can post photos, documents, videos and links on the site, and get paid for doing so. Only cents, but to get paid to post links to hubs or sites is novel. So I now have several PR3 links back to my hubs, and 5 cents(!) in my account. Will it disappear under a...
