I just tried this technique and it still works. I have seo quake plugin and it said the links were not nofollow, so I guess that is what we all want. This idea has been on the net for awhile now and I am not the person who invented it by any means. OK, here goes...
I am sure that some of you who have been doing this awhile remember the oggix shoutbox linking system. I found that it still works and you still have to do the linking by hand, but you at least get the link.
In a Google search box type intext:"by.oggix.com" (<--- you can copy/paste from here and use all of it)
In the search results you will see many links, actually over 2 million.
You will want to visit each one(or until your fingers fall off) and look for the shoutbox. It will have a place for a name, a url, and a comment.
You can use anchor text in the url box, an appropriate comment of short length about the website, and your web name or keyword.
If you keep it clean in the comment sections of these sites and make an attempt to add something of value, then your links should stick for years to come. And from what I understand, links will show on all of the blogs pages, which may be a goldmine in and of itself.
And as a bonus, I found in these same search results a website that has some other resources that may be of help try uberlinkbuilding.com
I am not affiliated with them in any way, the info seemed to be free and no optins of any kind.
I hope this helps those warriors that need a few links to point to their new blog maybe and get the ball rolling.
