In my never ending journey to dominate some very competitive niches I have been building an insane amount of backlinks over the past few months. A good deal (%60 or more) of these links have been profile links.
I am no different from everyone else who builds lots of links to their sites in that I would like to see as many of these links as I possibly can get indexed.
My current strategy for getting links indexed has actually been pretty effective thus far, but never being one to become complacent I have chosen to take things a step further.
My current backlink indexing/boosting strategy is as follows.
1.) Copy and past my links into an old splog page (500-1k per page) and post them. This splog uses an onlywire plugin that auto bookmarks each post made on the site plus an RSS plugin called "Web Traffic Genius" that automatically creates a unique RSS fees out of each post and submits it to 20 or so RSS aggregators.
2.) I take all of those same links plus the urls to my blog posts and create an RSS feed out of them using HTML2RSS and submit them to aggregators via RSSbot.
3.) I add the links to BLB/BIE. I have exactly 11 BIE setups on one site plus 1 BLB setup that now totals in over 100 different Web 2.0 properties that my links are being fed through. Right now I am building about 3-400 links a day to 3 different sites.
I do not use the randomizing feature in BIE, I go pedal to the medal so to speak and post all of my links to all of my properties. I have my cron job set to run every 6 minutes and have not had any issues with getting any of my Web 2.0 properties closed as of yet and I have been doing this for 3 months or more now. I should also add that all of my Web 2.0 properties are indexed and a good number of them are being crawled pretty frequently due to the large amount of scrapebox blasts that I have done over the past few months.
I also use the BIE wordpress plugin as I have quite a few blogs on an old justhost account that I had abandoned so I finally found a use for them with this. They all had a few backlinks already (mostly article directories) so I am thinking that they might have had some effect as of late also.
4.) I run all of my links through scrapebox's rapid indexer addon.This step I do not always do but I will begin to pretty soon since I saw a slight increase in the speed of links getting indexed when I tried it out. I don't do this step much as of now because it takes a while and I need the use of scrapebox all the time for other things. Steve Hawkins or "Traffic Mystic" has a tool that does this also so I am going to pick that up specifically for that purpose and set it to run every night on my profiles that I create that day before I go to bed.
5.) I run my profile urls through BMD. This is also a step that I do not always use but I am sure that it is pretty effective, especially if you do it on a daily basis. I am just not disciplined enough to do it every night so I usually do it every week or so.
As I said before this strategy has worked pretty well for me so far but I am always looking to make a good thing even better. Aside from that I am about to really ramp up my backlinking to more than double what I am already doing on a daily basis which means double the work for indexing which I am not a big fan of.
I would ultimately have to go through the whole process of doing mre BIE/BLB setups, getting these Web 2.0 properties established again and so on. I don't really have much of a problem with that since I am probably going to do it anyway but right now I am looking for the fastest results in the shortest amount of time.
So the other day I was thinking of a more effective/easier strategy for getting my backlinks indexed, (I am a big fan of the saying "work smarter not harder") when I thought of this new method that I will begin trying out starting today.
I will document my progress here in this thread so if you want to follow along and hopefully add some suggestions you are more than welcome.
The idea is to create a forum specifically for the purpose of making posts that contain the urls to my profiles in order to get them indexed faster. If you are not aware of this, Google bots spend more time on forums than almost any other type of websites.
I had heard this plenty of times by forum owners and have always noticed the "google bot" being listed as an online user on forums but I actually tried this out for myself the past two days.
I chose to very small communities (both PR N/A with less than 1k members) one was an I.P.Board forum and the other was a SMF and then joined and started my own thread.
I did this at around 9 pm and then checked back the next morning when I woke up. I simply did a google search for the title of each thread that I had created in quotes and sure enough both of them had already been indexed.
This was enough to tell me that this could very well work. What I plan to do is start a few threads with real content on them, I have installed SMF on an old domain that I own (6 months old with about 90 backlinks) and then paste the urls to some fresh profiles that I have created into a post on a few different threads.
Just for extra measure I will blast the thread urls to a couple thousand blogengine blogs via scrapebox and ping them. I will then document the % of profiles that have been indexed and at what rate.
Depending on my results this could very well replace my entire backlink indexing strategy so it should be pretty interesting.
I should add that whether this works or not I will continue to use BIE/BLB as there is not substitute for either of these tools in terms of backlink boosting right now. The sites that I am building links for are going to be authority sites so I am thinking long term in everything that I do. BLB/BIE are great tools for boosting the power of your links which actually rest on PR N/A pages. This is why I syndicate my backlinks to so many Web 2.0 properties and plan to add a lot more (700 or more in due time).
Although your links might not always get indexed overnight using these tools I am pretty sure that if you are building links for a site that you plan to have years down the line the boosting of each link to it's maximum potential will prove well worth the effort down the line as google will eventually crawl the backlinks to your backlinks and the backlinks to you Web 2.0 properties as well (provided you are building them).
Anyhow, enough of my rambling. I look forward to seeing what results this little test provides and hearing any input that my fellow Warriors have.
All the best...
