How To Index Backlinks At The Speed Of Light
Almost every webmaster is aware of the power of backlinks. For a good reason too. Backlinks will pretty much determine the fate of your website. No matter how great your content may be, you’re not going to rank in the search engines and receive any traffic unless you do some serious link building. Now what most people aren’t aware of is that unless your backlinks are indexed, Google won’t acknowledge them!
Indexing is basically getting pages in Google’s and other search engine’s index. (Index being search results) It’s very easy to do as long as your content is high quality. If you produce a unique piece of content and submit it to 1 high Page Rank site or even your own, Google will probably index it.
However if you’re building thousands of backlinks that aren’t exactly high quality, you need to go the extra mile. As Google doesn’t index every page online. In fact, before I took the steps I’m about to show you, I only ever had 20% or less of my backlinks indexed. So without getting them indexed you’re not going to get credit for them.
If Google doesn’t know about sites linking to yours, how will they move you up in the SERPS? Obviously, indexing is a crucial part of SEO and barely anyone is aware of it. So follow these 5 steps and you’ll be able to index your backlinks at the speed of light… almost.
1. Energize Your Links
Energizing your links basically means syndicate them. I say energize because I use a tool called backlink energizer. I’m not even using an affiliate link; it’s just a great tool. It’s a WordPress plugin you install on your blog and set up with 20+ web2.0 sites. You enter in a few account details and some popular RSS feeds. Then you just dump in your backlinks and away it goes.
It pulls content from the RSS feeds and submits it onto the web2.0′s dropping links to your backlinks. Really useful tool, especially when you supercharge your web2.0′s with other links. Using backlink energizer works like crazy for me. (A free alternative that’s semi automated is Ping.fm)
2. Create And Submit Feeds
If you don’t know, RSS feeds can help get stuff indexed and fast! This strategy involves getting a list of your backlinks, creating RSS feeds out of them and submitting them to the top aggregators. I’m not even going to explain, it just works!
So here’s what to do. Gather a list of your backlinks, and then head over to Links2RSS. Links2RSS allows you to create RSS feeds out of your backlinks. Or any links for that matter. Just paste your list of backlinks into the box and click create feeds. I’d use around 20 links per RSS.
Once done, you’ll get a feed like this: http://www.links2rss.com/feed/123606680.xml
After you generate the feeds, submit them to the following aggregators:
3. Comment Blasts
I know comment backlinks suck, but they “force” Google to crawl your links. So by blasting comment links at your other backlinks, you can literally force Google to crawl & therefore index them. The cool thing about comment links is that they can be created in mass quantities quite easily. You really can’t do this without the help of tools like Scrapebox or Blog Comment Demon.
All you need to do is paste your list of backlinks into a tool and blast them out to thousands of blogs. Doing this will supercharge your links and get them indexed. As I said, you need one of the above paid tools to really make use of this strategy… or there’s a free tool called Comment Kahuna. Although, that thing is barely semi-automatic so I’d say invest in a paid tool or don’t do this at all.
4. Forum Profile Blasts
On top of everything else, this is by far most effective. The only problem is that it’s going to cost you a lot of time or money. Forum profiles are like the step up from blog comments. They are higher quality links and not as “spammy”. Like blog comments, they can be created in mass. It’s just a little bit trickier. In order to place a link to your website (backlinks) in a forum profile, you need to create an account. This means filling out all that user profile crap. Honestly, you shouldn’t ever register heaps of accounts and put in those hours for the sake of building a few profile links to get your other links indexed. Or even to build them directly to your own sites. So you really have 3 options, tools wise…
- Xrumer ($590, this thing is the beast of all beasts, the most powerful SEO tool on the planet)
- Backlink Nuke ($150, cheaper alternative that works very well, not as powerful as Xrumer)
- Manual (Free)
Ok, this strategy isn’t as effective as it used to be. By pinging your backlinks, you basically send a notification to the search engines saying “Hey, I just published a page for you to checkout”. If it’s a page full of unique content then pinging can do a tremendous job. However if you’re building thousands of links it doesn’t do much. I’m not sure how effective pinging is any more, since I use it in conjunction with the other strategies, but I’m sure it contributes in some way.
