Having said all this, I also know that one should ping and rss their backlinks for higher success rate (that has been proven).
I was researching tools that could help out with this, sure enough Linklicious.me came up and I like the idea. Some use a mix of Linklicious and Lindexed.
Was wondering if any of you folks use these tools, and what are your thoughts on them? Do you use both? Is it worth it? Any other tools that could complement these?
