I have been doing good with our main Index Driver built on a WP platform. No, I still do not really love WordPress like others seem to but, I'm dealing with it.
I happened to have a couple of hints for you...I was saving 1 of them until I saw how it worked but, today I found a post by a real person that backs up one of the things I have been doing so, I will share it as my resource. I normally like the Trial & error method before I say something works but, when someone has done the work....it might save time.Hint #1
. I have been looking for post (articles) that allow trackbacks. When I make a mini post about their article & put in their link, I have a chance to gain a backlink from them. Winner for both of us.
Today I saw Dan Thies
tweet out to How To Get Backlinks With Index Driver Sites
. This articles says YES to using articles that have trackbacks for the link.
In the comment section of the above post you will see a person saying that using trackbacks is spammy to get links. I call BULSHIT!
If the blog owner does not want to give trackback links they can turn them off or delete them.
The original blog owner gets a free dofollow link from you that you are sharing with all of your readers.
Sharing links for a good cause in NOT spam.
Keep in mind - I do NOT use only tackback links. If I find one that has it fine. I also do not make shitty mini post just for a trackback link. I either like the original post & want to share it or I don't even bother listing it. I want to share good info not just get a trackback.
Just means "My not as stoopid as I may appear". These next 2 tips are also getting me recommendations as a person/blog to follow.Hint #2
. If your keyphrase for your index driver is news worthy - This tip put me on the hits list for 2 weeks now.
Take your Key Phrase and phrases that might be a hair broader,
Stick them in Google & search,
Now hit SHOW OPTIONS,
On the side bar click LATEST or LAST 24 HOURS.
KaBoom, you can find fresh in the news hot post to put in your driver.
No, this doesn't always work but, it depends on your search phrase. Bluegreen widgets may not have breaking news on any day. Yet, the Widget industry may have a something as breaking news. An example
- Maybe they are using bluegreen widgets to help combined local list of survivors in Haiti. People will be searching to see what is a bluegreen widget and how they can get one to find their family. If you have written a good mini post then you will get the hits. You also need to lead them by link to a good article telling them the proper info.
My experience is that the local news stations only briefly mention a topic & people hear key words & then start searching for the rest of the info they need about the product/service/uses...
Just make sure that the Hot Breaking News fits your main topic of the Index Driver!Hint #3
If you are linking to an article of someone on Twitter - send them a tweet saying you loved their post & wanted to share it with your readers.
Most smart people are thrilled & let others know that they have been talked about else where. A few may say you are stealing & not want the Free dofollow link (what idiots). If your Driver site is good info with links to trusted sites & info then anyone not wanting a free link is....ya know.
Ok, now I have shared a few of my top secrets with you. Maybe everyone else already knew them but, just play along with me K?!
