Backlinks are one of the few ways that you can improve how Google and the other search engines see your pages. I am sure that you have probably recognized this in the past and so it is a very good idea to make the most of your backlinks.
This strategy that I want to tell you about today is a good one for making more of your current fans, the ones that have linked to you.
One of the ways to pick up backlinks is by submitting lots of articles. Once these articles are picked up by others and then put on their sites you will be able to hopefully leverage them. You can do this by taking the first sentence of your article and putting it in quotes and then searching Google for it. something like this:
Do you see the quotes in there? The search should show up this article (If it is indexed when you read this). Anyway when you do this with your own article you will get the results that Google has found for this term and these should all link to your site, don’t worry that many people will not give you the linkback that they should – they won’t even if you complain.
Once you find this you can automatically ping the page through Pingomatic by using a link in your Firefox Bookmarks. Grab the following Bookmarklet (just drag it to your favorites bar below the address bar).
Once you use pingomatic to ping the pages that are linking back to you all the search engines should be takinig those links on the other pages just that much more important and this should help your rankings as a better backlink.
There is lots more to learn about building up backlinks but hopefully this will keep you a bit easier
