How To Get Your Backlinks Indexed

Here is a video showing a simple trick to get your profile page backlinks indexed. Very handy if you use a service link angelas backlink packet.


RSS Generator: WebDevTips - Code Generators - RSS Headliner
Free Hosting Directory: Free Web Hosting!
RSS Aggregators: NewsOnFeeds.com - List of News Aggregators

There are other ways to do this that are a bit quicker that involves registering for sites or purchasing software, but I prefer to use free and non opt in services for demonstrations.

If anyone is unclear how to upload and submit the RSS feed I will make another video.

Hope this helps.

    Great video and information. I still don't buy into those backlinks from profiles counting for anything but hey - this really is a useful video for many other reasons.

      Thanks. They do work, I have pages ranking now that just use them. Because they are so easy to get you can get loads of them quickly. To get the best use out of them though you need to spin content for them and blast backlinks at each profile page.

        I've seen enough testing done to show me that they do nothing. I'm always open to new evidence though - can you give me some proof that they work, like a site with listed backlinks from the profiles and suchlike?

        Can take it in a pm if you like.

          I don't know if Google has gotten around to whacking them yet but there were a bunch of "male enhancement" product sites using this technique to rank well. You can do some searches and see if they're still there.

          Overall, I see the problem as being permanence of the links although they do seem to work for a short term boost.

      You should buy into it, I have a few sites that moved up only using the profile links and they have quite a bit of daily searches and massive competition. I used only the profile links to see how they would work. I'm beginning to see more and more of them this month, they were submitted last month and no ping was used. This month I'm doing another site with just them, this time I'm bookmarking to two accounts and pinging to see if that helps.

    I made a video recently where I ranked a site using just blog links where the actual page was pr0 which is pretty much the same principle.

    Google likes the anchor text coming from authority domains. You can build thousands of these links very easily. Perhaps you can show me one of your sites that didn't rank from these links and I can have a look and see if I can see why?

    Ok cool. The site I did it on is one I've sold - but it never got the backlinks.

    Thanks GuerillaIM,

    Looks like this can be used for deep-linking website pages also.

    There is a way to make them permanent that involves a lot more work.

    It is only worth doing if you have a really big list of sites that take profile pages, but you can divide them into categories, then write an article/bio for each catgory.

    Do this and it wont get removed. To be honest my profile page links don't get removed ayway. I write a profile like:

    "Hi, Real enjoy this website and looking forward to helping out blah blah blah"

    I drop a single link in at the end and its all good. I have seen other profile pages where they drop 5 or 6 links and make it sound promotional. That is a sure fire way to get your link deleted.

      I agree with your method.

      I also would suggest taking it one step further and point the link to an unmonetized personal looking blog/site so that it looks even more innocent. Linking to 'makememoneynow.com?afflink=me' or 'cheapdiamondwatches.com' or even an article site might be enough to get some webmasters to delete you, especially if they've been hit hard by a lot of real spammers. You can funnel the link juice from the personal site to whatever money sites you want.

      Just to make it clear what I was saying earlier, even if these links survive scrutiny by the forum host, Google doesn't usually keep these pages in their index all that long. I've seen around 6-12 months for forum links before the page is deindexed. The way to prevent this or to revive a page that's no longer being counted is to ping it and do light social bookingmarking (using Bookmarking Demon or other social bookmarking tool).

        I havent personally see Google de-index a profile page with content that still exists. I have seen it where an old forum post gets moved into the archive and the backlink is lost though.

          Since I've been doing online forums for a very long time (since the mid 90's) and have some very old profile pages, I've seen these profile pages no longer show up in either Yahoo or Google Webmaster Tools. Deindexed may not be the right term, archived might be a better term, but they don't seem to be counted any longer.

          They can be brought back to life though. For example, I've purchased some expired domains that had old forum profile and signature links leftover from the previous owner. I found them and did the ping and bookmark routine on them. Within a few months I had PR3 or better sites with minimal backlinking on my part.

            so you think the signature with back links can help to have a better ranking?

        hi,
        Thanks for this, as I will keep this all in mind for a reference.

        As, it is exactly the right answer I just want to clear my doubt.

        Thanks!!

    Hi GuerillaIM,
    this is something I've been looking for for quite some time now! It's really true that for some reason some profile URLs and hence the backlinks on there don't get indexed by google, even if you show engagement on the sites, where your member name gives a link to the profile URLs. This has really been baffling me but with your method this should be a thing of the past now. Though I'm not really sure I like this method because as we all know Profiles aren't "News".

    Unfortunately I don't understand that much about RSS. Where will these profiles URLs show up? Will only google see these or will they be public somewhere?

    My other worry is that when submitting all these profile URLs through RSS that google may start raising a spam flag? What's the maximum number of profiles you have submitted so far and did they all end up being indexed? Wouldn't google catch on the fact that your using a host where you aren't actually running a website?

    Btw, what do you mean with "spin content for them"?

      I generate content for the profile page so at the very least that page appears unique on that domain. When google find thousands of pages on the same domain that are all very similar they may not index them all. By adding some text to the profile page (using a content spinner if you want automation) you are increasing the chances of google indexing the page with your link.

        Good point. Another reason why it's important to write a bio or something like that which incorporates your backlinks instead of just leaving the links with no content whatsoever. Btw, could you also please answer the other concern of mine? --> "My other worry is that when submitting all these profile URLs through RSS that google may start raising a spam flag?

        I though of that before but my guess is that if you open a blog and only use it for plastering it with profile links google will ignore or deindex it.

        Thanks, very much appreciated! Have you used this to successfully get profiles indexed? Well, I just took a look and on the main page it says "RSS Builder is an easy to use service to create RSS feeds for your web site. It provides a simple interface that lets you add topics, links and content, and then publish the RSS (v2.0) feed to your web server with one click!" So I still need a website host, don't I? That was not my question...I was wondering if it's possible to publish an RSS feed to a website service or the like (that then gets picked up by google) instead of a website that you have to own yourself (free or not).

          Yes it's possible, register, create you RSS feed, and then click on XML, that'll give the url of your feed (something like h*tp://rss.icerocket.com/xmlfeed?id=YOURID ).
          So everytime I drop a backlink I add it in my feed and when I've finished my daily backlinks routine I just ping the the feed address (h*tp://rss.icerocket.com/xmlfeed?id=xxxx) in pingomatic or pingoat.
          The links are indexed very very fast !
          I've done it for 2 days (for a new website of mine), so I can't tell if it helps for the ranking... still in the 24th page...

          OK, I wasn't going to share this method (I doubt most people reading this will even realise how cool it is) but here goes.

          Register a free domain (I use .co.cc domains), and register a free hosting account. Install wordpress on this domain. Then bump a bit of unique content onto it with AMA & UAW and add all of your RSS feeds to this blog (or multiple blogs, depending how entusiastic u are).

          Bash in like 10 links to this blog and all ur links will get indexed and a bit of juice. Cost = 0.

      Uhm, sure. I want google to recognize them as profile links, thats what this is all about actually. As in recognize = index.

    So I'm at icerocket.com and creating several profile URL entries for the RSS feed. When I create a channel then it asks me for "channel link". Is it ok to use the icrerocket url for this? Like I mentioned I don't want to start a new website or blog (let alone fill it with alibi content) in order to use it as the channel link.

      You can use whatever adress you want, it'll still be indexed (if you don't forget to ping)

          Over the weekend, I created a new website and got free hosting. I put up a few articles and embedded the icerocket RSS link in one of my posts. I posted some backlinks to the new site and left it alone. So today I noticed that the site has been indexed. Unfortunately, the URL's that are in the icerocket RSS feed were not indexed. Perhaps this is way too early in the process. I will wait a week or so to see what happens. I really need to get my backlinks indexed!

            It takes anywhere from a day to a few weeks in my experience. Do the link pages you are trying to get indexed have any content on them?

              Yes the link to the feed is coming from a post with spunned content. I figured it would take a little while to get indexed. I will update you all on my results.

    is the blog linking to the website where the feed is hosted or directly to the pages that are indexed? I use a plugin to add the feed as content and it embeds all the links inside the blog.

      The blog is linking directly to the RSS feed (http://rss.icerocket.com/xmlfeed?id=XXXXX) as opposed to the pages I want to be indexed. My experience suggests that having too many external links simply dillutes the PR. Also Google looks only at the first 150 external links and I have many more profiles than that

      What plugin do you use? What would you suggest that I do based on your results (link to the feed or link directly the the pages that I want to get indexed)?

      Finally, I wanted to thank you for taking the time to answer my question and sharing this valuable method with us, it is much appreciated

    Making a blog just for the purpose of linking to a rss feed hosted on another server is pointless, as you want the profile pages to be indexed, not your RSS feed. If you are worried about having too many external links then make more than one blog (or create more content and split the links up between the content pages).

    The RSS addon I use is WP-o-Matic.

    In truth though there is a better way to do it (Dang, I am going to let everything out of the bag at this rate).

    I use a plugin called caffeinated content to generate content on the blog and drip feed it automatically. There is a links file with the plugin that you can drop all of your profile page links into it and it will randomly add a link to each auto generated post. This plugin isn't free however and I would think twice about buying it as the support is non-existent, but it does do the job.

    Thanks for the contribution! I use RSSbot to submit all my profile feeds and also ping them to pingomatic with another automated pinging software. Also i make unique content on all my profile pages, and keep them crowded and informative. With all that, i get them indexed sometimes within a day to weeks. I update all those profiles once in a week and promote them "within" the community to get some PR juice from higher ranking profiles in the site. 50 profiles with PR3 linking back to you is gold! rather then 200 profiles with PR0 linking back you! Hope it helps ~Esh

      Yeah, if you are making a rss feed with your links then submit it to rss agregator. If you are including your links into blogs then actually include the link, not a link to the rss feed.

      Yep - Content, variation and promotion within the community is more than likely the key. I'm coming to this conclusion too because most of my index attempts have failed. The only reason I can think of now is because google doesn't see the value in them (which makes sense since the majority of the profiles I try to get indexed have the same texts or just the links only). I actually was successful in getting my squidoo lens indexed where I dropped a few of my profile URLs but what do you know, those profile URLs didn't get picked up. I was successful however in getting a profile URL from months back indexed by using it as a user name link for a blog comment. So that method apparently works provided the blog is well crawled and dofollow. But how many blog comments can you make and how many blogs can you find for each single profile URL? We're talking hundreds of profiles here so this method is not practical at all. Oh well...

      Btw, I've also tried icerocket RSS feed but I guess it's not working for me as I don't have a blog I can/want to use as the channel link. I actually used the home domains of the community sites themselves, as this would look natural. But apparently that doesn't work....?

      I would very much appreciate being kept posted btw by those that are attempting to get their profile urls indexed by simple putting them on a free blog. I kinda have my doubts that this has long-term doability. But I'll be glad to stand corrected...

    I've developed the WordPress Rich Snippets plugin to help you markup your content with different types of schema.org markups and get rich snippets for rating stars to show in Google's SERPs.

    Hi Eswar,

    How are you checking whether the link is indexed or not? When the link gets de-indexed, is the profile page still there?

      I check the index status by directly putting the URL on google search box.

      I added 11 profiles on 11th Sep.

      5 were indexed on 12th sep. (Today's status-1 profile deleted. 4 were deindexed)

      Onle one profile is currently in index.

        Just by searching for the URL does not always bring back the page. Try "site:URL".

        For exampe: site:http://www.profilesite.com/myprofile/profile.php

        Would you be able to PM me a link to a profile page that was previously indexed but now has been removed? I would like to see if I can find out exactly what is happening to de-index your link. All I can think of is that you don't have any content on there that is unique to that domain or you are linking to a bad neighbourhood.

      You could do that, although, I do like to spread the links between different sites. You could even make comments on other peoples blogs with links back to your profile pages if you liked.

      Proof?

      1. you're not going to get 50 PR3 profile pages [ well 99% of the people wont ]

      2. How do you know 200 indexed and counted profile backlinks isnt as good or better than 50 PR3 page links?

        Why not? Just use Angelas or Pauls backlink packets. Most of the profiles you get from these are actually way higher than PR3.

          I think he was refering to the actual page rank of the page that holds the link. There are many factors that effect ranking, the toolbar PR is just a indication of the inbound links. It can also give hints to pages that are being penalised. Just because a page has a high page rank, does not mean it will help you any more. For instance google has stopped many sites that sell links passing on any link juice. It is true that not all links are equal, but the toolbar value is not something you should ever rely on solely.

    Of course. You can use anything that makes an rss feed. I use rssbot but in my videos I do not like to promote services that captcha your details or change any money if I can help it.

    Take the principles apply them to any tool you like.

    anwar - once you have the rss file you can upload this anywhere on the internet and then give the link to the file to the rss aggregators. If you use one of the tools that hosts the rss feed for you then this will be easier if you are not comfortable uploading files. Check the previous posts by other contributers to see some good places to go.

      Try this

    Hey Guys, This conversation spawned in another thread but I thought it was much more useful here.

    For those of you wondering if your profiles have been found after all that work to get them indexed, just google the username.

      Simple answer: Because none of the backlink tools come close to showing all of the backlinks out there.

      The best I have found so far is program called SEO SpyGlass that I have been playing around with this week. It basically collects backlink lists from many different sources and combines it into one master list.

    It depends how you are checking for the backlinks. Google won't show you, Yahoo is the most accurate database for indexed backlinks. The software tools that provide backlink analysis usually use Yahoo to gather data.

      I'm using yahoo. it's only showing 4 backlinks yet there are 100+ profiles indexed showing in a yahoo and a google search.

      google has crawled my backlinks for sure, now I'm guessing it's just a matter of time before they start causing some effect. What do you think?

    If the page is indexed the the backlink should be registered. Either it takes some time to update or yahoo doesn't like the profile pages. Did you spin a bit of text onto each profile?
