It’s not money that makes the on-line world go round…it’s backlinks.
We all want more.
That is sort of true…to be more precise…
We all want more quality backlinks.
Because the more quality backlinks we have the…
…More Google loves our sites
…The higher our sites appear in the search engines.
Don’t get me wrong I do all of these methods myself and recommend you do…they just take a little longer than this one…
RSS Directories and RSS Footer
This method is another one-off action…like yesterdays Little Blogging Cracker on Pinging.
I have mentioned this before but many people may have missed it the first (and second / third) time around…hence mentioning it again.
Install the RSS Footer Plugin
The RSS Footer plugin allows you to add an extra line of content to blog posts in your RSS feed, defaulting to “Post from: ” and then a link back to your blog, with your targeted keyword phrase as it’s anchor text.
Here’s an image of my RSS feed:
See the red arrows? They point to my backlink using the phrase ‘Blogging Guide’.
Did you see I’ve been greedy and added a second link as well?
I also use the title of the blog post as a backlink.
Now why would you want to install the RSS Footer plugin?
There are 2 reasons:
1. Let’s say someone takes a copy of your blog post via RSS and copies it on their blog, you automatically have a backlink.
You may not want them to take a copy of your blog post but if they did, you do get a backlink.
2. If you complete the second action below of adding your blog feed to the RSS Directories, you automatically have another backlink.
Action number 1: Install and set-up the RSS Footer plugin
Submit Your Blog Feed to the RSS Directories
RSS Directories hold millions of links to websites and blogs and are some of the most visited websites on the internet.
By adding your blog’s RSS feed to the RSS Directories, every future blog post you add to your blog, will automatically be added to the RSS Directory. And that means it could potentially be seen by thousands of visitors and your blog will receive a powerful backlink from the RSS Directory.
You only have to add your blog’s RSS feed to the RSS directory once and everything is set up to work automatically.
If you have completed action point number 1, you get more backlinks due to the set-up of the RSS Footer plugin.
I’ve submitted my blog feed to approximately 30 RSS Directories so each time I publish a blog post, I get something like 90 backlinks…all on auto pilot.
Action number 2: Submit your feed to the RSS Directories
Read this post for a step-by-step method of adding your blog post to one of the most powerful RSS Directories:
Completing the above 2 actions should take you less than 30 minutes and it is worth doing. It is a one-off job and you get automatic backlinks each time you publish a blog post.
