Hi.

I put the address of my website/blog in the signature of a very popular website. This is the only backlink attempt made so far. On alexa.com I noticed my site has almost half a million backlinks. Is it a case that when other sites link to the popular site my one gets added too?

Thanks.

J.

    A backlink should only count as a backlink from the site that actually links to you. If a site links to another site and that other site links to you it will not count as a backlink.

      What is that very popular website you are referring to, I might put a link or two there myself.

      Yes, I think this is probably why the number is large. But my other sites using blogspot have next to no 'Sites Linking in'

      Craiglist will automatically put a "nofollow" tag on any link you drop in. While it will be helpful to get a new page indexed, it will not give you the credit of PR passed on. Plus since most CL posts expire in 30 days, it will not look good to have links flake away.

      Just my thoughts. But CL is a huge part of my marketing. I post 3-6 every single day of my life. Even on Xmas I was posting.

      If you are looking for links, send me a PM and I can hook you up.
