Free Backlink Strategies That Work

backlink strategiesUsing free services is one of the backlink strategies that I use to build links back to my blog posts, articles and videos and is part of my overall ranking strategy that works. Learning to generate traffic online is not a difficult prospect if you are willing to take the time to find the information out there to actually do this stuff, but I have found that most people don’t really want to do the work and believe me when I tell you, this IS work, but I love it!

Free Sites and Backlink Strategies

One of my favorite and common backlink strategies is using free services. Ping.fm is one of my favorite services to date.

The ping.fm site is a social bookmarking site that will automatically post to many of your social sites like facebook, twitter, linkedin, delicious and many others. This is usually one of the first sites I go to when I finish an article. Once signed in I usually write a quick headline concerning the article, paste my article URL and click the submit button.

This site will usually give me some quick backlinks, around 12, within seconds. You can add up to 20+ sites that are all pretty well credentialed sites. Like I said, this takes just a few minutes to do.

Social Monkee and Backlink Strategies

Another free site that I like to use is Social Monkee. Social monkee has both a pro and free membership and for now I use the free membership. In terms of backlink strategies, this is another site that will produce links – 25 per day for 1 URL for a free membership; 100 links per day for 3 URLs with a “Pro” membership.

The Pro membership with Social Monkee is a one time $47 fee, probably worth every penny, but here is the rub. You can obtain a Pro membership with Social Monkee for free! How? Refer 12 other people that are looking for a way to generate some quick links. They can also be free members so there is no need to “hard” sell to everyone you come across.

Backlink Strategies: Pings Make Blogs Different

If you are unfamiliar with pings and the pinging process keep on reading. One of the main reasons why I like blogs is because of the typically built in feature that many blogging platforms have that send out pings to search engines and other indexing sites when ever a blog is updated with a new post.

This is how some blogs, typically active blogs, have the power to rank on the first page of Google within hours of being written. I personally have had articles that I wrote that were live and on page 1 of Google for a variety of key phrases within minutes.

Since WordPress already has a ping service built in (you can change the settings under the Privacy tab and even add additional ping sites), you can also use Pingler.com to access even more pings for an article. Simply go to Pingler.com and type in the required info (url, title) and click the submit button. You don’t even need to register to do this!

backlink strategiesUsing Backlink Strategies To Get Noticed Quickly

Using these backlink strategies when you complete a post on your blog will not only start the process of getting your site noticed as well as get traffic to start towards your site, but will also start you down the right road to gaining some valuable backlinks for the page. Remember that every time you write a new article you are creating a new page and while your domain may have thousands of links your new page will have 0.

There are many other techniques and methods I use to generate even more backlinks and for the most part I like to do this manually. I do subscribe to a submissions service and this is how I get additional backlinks as well, but mainly there is a recipe. I write the article, get the pings going, do the social bookmarking and submit to social monkee. This takes about 5 minutes. I then write promotional articles, submit spun articles to my submission service with links back to my blog post and then another round for the high PR article directories that I have submitted to.

Using these techniques to building links back to your site works. It takes a lot of effort, but as I say above, these are free backlink strategies that work and that’s what this is all about in the first place.
