Pikter is a web 2.0 Flickr clone that is pretty well setup and brand spanking new. Since the site is so new there isn’t much PR being passed around, but Pikter is a site to keep your eye on. They allow photo comments which includes two simple forms to fill out. Since the two forms are only your name and your web address, you can easily nab a do follow link on the photo page. I’m going to be using Pikter in the future for some viral testing, and what do I mean by that? Well I want to try and get some photos going viral on the web, and if possible I’ll be able to benefit from the link on the page. There are a ton of new services sprouting that allow you to get links, and this is just a simple example. I’ll be scouring the web for more sites like this so hopefully we’ll have a giant list of photo sites to link build on.

I’ve been snooping around for a new place to build some links and low and behold here came Bemba, the social sharing network. Bemba is a pr4 do follow social media site that covers the basics such as videos, pictures and blogs. Another pretty cool feature of the site is its statistics which gives you direct and continuous feedback on your bookmarks. Read the post Link Building With Bemba.

I’ve been trying to find another way to build links that will come off as reputable links and it led me to resume websites. There have been quite a few web 2.0 resume creating/posting sites coming out as well, if you dig deep, there are a ton of old and authorative resume sites. The beauty about link building this way is that you can also sharpen your resume writing skills, and even perhaps snag a few jobs within your industry. Some of the web 2.0 based resume sites have built in wizards to create your online wizard in a snap, which usually includes a place for a backlink. Read the blost post Link Building With Your Resume.

I was scouring Youtube for link building videos, and while having a good chuckle at some, there was a pretty good video series from the folks at Themematic. A lot of people have blogged and discussed methods of using social media websites such as Squidoo, Hubpages(etc etc etc) for the purpose of providing quality one-way links to your main websites. There’s almost no need to exchange links anymore with websites because there are so many one-way link building options out there, why bother? Read the post One Way Link Building Strategies.

Mugshot is an open source social platform sponsored by Red Hat which allows users to compile an online portfolio of themselves from their online social media sites. So basically it lets you build a page filled with content streamed in from your Youtube acount, Flickr account, Delicious bookmarks, blogs and so much more.You can get do follow links from your profile page and join/create groups to promote whatever you like. Read the post Link Building With Mugshot.

As you all I’m sure are aware of of the open source social bookmarking CMS called Scuttle. Well it isn’t anything too special except for the fact it happens to be one of the most popular scripts chosen on many many many niche based social bookmarking clones. Within the past year there also has been a launch of ScuttlePlus which is an improved version of Scuttle with a few more features such as do follow, administrator panel and advertising control. Read Link Building With Scuttle.

AideRSS is a really slick interface that parses your favorite feeds by its own rating system called the PostRank. This system takes in many variables of the blog post such as amount of comments, rating and inbound links to the post to determine which ones you should most likely be reading. I’ve been using the software for a while now out of pure personal enjoyment, so take your time and check the site out. This site is put together by a cool group of people that really take an interest in the site so please don’t abuse the services they provide. Read Link Building & RSS Promotion With Aide RSS.

When it comes to directory submission I usually don’t do it by the masses, but when I need to I can always rely on SubmitEaze. Version 8 has just been launched and there is no secret about this program, it just works like it should and can get very profitable if used properly. I think we can all agree how much submitting to directories sucks the big one, so any sort of automation is good in my books. Read SubmitEaze Version 8 Launches.

Listable is a social and do follow list creation tool for online lists. As most of you know it was first blogged about by Collin in his Link Building Cookbook, so I take no credit for this discovery.

I’ve been compiling a very large list of forums that are do follow and have a section for website reviews which are a great way to get some some feedback as well snag some juicy links(ooo sexy links).

Link Building With Website Reviews On Forums

August 27  |  Link Building  |   Ryan Clark

I’ve been compiling a very large list of forums that are do follow and have a section for website reviews which are a great way to get some some feedback as well snag some juicy links(ooo sexy links). Most of my readers are aware of the sections that Digital Point and V7N provide for website reviews, so I’ve hunted down a lot more for your personal link building enjoyment.

First up is the forum that everyone loves to hate(well mostly), Digital Point Forums. DPF has been a home to me for a couple of years only due to the giant user base which provides a great place to promote my articles, waste time and occasionally learn something. They do however provide a great place to get your websites reviewed by the fine folks at DPF. To get your review you have to sign up and then head on over to the Digital Point Website Review section.

V7N is another huge webmaster community with a lot of down to earth people who will give your website an honest review. I really like V7N mainly because the level of professionalism there even though the forum is filled with noobs. Not only will you get a decent review but the amount of people that look at the threads in the section should also bring in a decent amount of traffic for the first day or two. Get off your ass and head on over to get your website reviewed at V7N.

The High Rankings Forum has a really large and active community and you must have at least 20 posts before you can request a website review. Now if you mosey on over and look at their website review section, you’ll notice they get a staggering amount of views, so the potential for traffic is great! These forums are well worth taking part of every day so go on over and sign up.

The Web Developer Forum is a great place have your website reviewed as long as you do not come off as spammy. I understand that link builders are going to be considered spammy more often that not, so just becareful and only put your backlink once in the review write up. The forum is also a great place to keep up on web design and is worthy of a registration. Head on over to get your website review.

The Searchen Forums is a place I like to haunt a few times a week and low and behold…a website review section! The review section isn’t too active which can be both good and bad. On the one hand it might take a bit to get a review, and on the plus side your review should stay on the first page for a lot longer. Head on over to sign up and get your review.

The last one I’ll at least write about are the Zymic Forums which has an active website review area that usually ives indepth reviews. The users there really are good at taking part of the community and the place is growing more and more everyday. You know the drill, sign up and take part in the community and get some feedback from respected webmasters.

This is just a small list that I put together so when you combine Google’s powerful search queries you will be able to find a lot more forums that offer website reviews. But don’t stop there because the web offers all sorts of platforms where one can obtain a free website review. To get you started load up a new browser window and plunk down this command in Google’s search box inurl:forum website review.

This Week In Link Building For August 25th 2008

August 25  |  TWiLB  |   Ryan Clark

Well welcome to the second edition of This Week In Link Building. I’ve had a great week of growth and a lot of good feedback from all you folks. I’ve got most of the Link Building Podcast recorded so expect to see that launch sometime this week. As you know I also launched the Link Building Forums on this day so I hope to get as many of you as possible in there. I’ve had my good friend Oliver from SEO Business hack up this theme to give it a different look which I’ll implement sometime tonight.

I managed to get a good set of posts finished up and a lot of great websites to link build on were found. I’ve been hunting around the web on different authority sites, scouring high ranking sites back links and browsing open source software for new ways to build links. The blogosphere has been quiet lately and I’m highly anticipating a new post from Collin Lahay because he always has something juicy to update.

First up was a post on WordPress Link Building Plugins which helped automatically build links and help the spiders index your content. This post will continually get updated because I’m sure we’ll a few more amazing plugins that fall under this category. If you have a plugin I missed be sure to comment on it or simply send me an email via the contact page.

I found out how to use Faviki For Link Building which has helped me get a bunch of solid links for a lot of my projects lately. Faviki is a pr6 social bookmarking site that allows you to tag pages with Wikipedia terms( Semantic Tags). This means that everybody uses the same names for tags from the world’s largest collection of knowledge.

Even though Faves is no follow it is still a great place to harness for targeted traffic. If you produce some quality conent then this site will work nicely for you. It is somewhat like StumbleUpon in regards, but has its own quirky differences that make it unique.

I made a list of the top forum posts on my favorite forums related to SEO and link building. There are a few good posts out there and these ones have a lot of views for a good reason. It’s always nice to actually read something you should know instead of the same old drivel.

Blogoria is a great blog promotion tool that gives you a do follow link as well offers some RSS feed promotion capabilities. I’ve been noticing a few more sites like these popping up lately so I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled.

Collin Lahay’s rssHugger is a great promotional tool that has the same kind of feel as Blogoria. It promotes your RSS feed as well provides quality backlinks to your website. This is a one of a kind website so don’t expect this link value to go down anytime soon.

I noticed a newish search engine for finding do follow forums has hit the scene and I would keep my eye on it. This will no doubtably have hundreds of not thousands of forums listed within the next couple of months. The do follow trend still seems to thrive and the blogs and forums seem to be targeted the most.

I wrote a short post called Link Building With Plime which is a well known social bookmarking service that passes along some link love. Plime currently holds a pr6 and tons of pages indexed. Plime makes use of a “karma points” system where it rewards user accounts the more they participate.

Although there seem to be a ton of lists floating out there already for do follow forums webmaster forums I managed to write one up as well. I also ranked them by PR just to give you an indication of which ones are the more active. Remeber these are communities to take part in, not just spam away to get links. It works out better in the long run if you market yourself with a good image.

I’ve been dabbling with StumbleUpon Exchanges lately and found a few places to make the process much much easier. know this falls under the bad practice routine sometimes, but when I generally exchange Stumbles it has to be with a decent website or content piece. No matter how many stumbles you get, you can still have a website or article that sucks. There are a few good communities out there spreading the Stumble love, there are also places that might not be such a great idea to join to trade.

Blog Bookmark has been one of my new favorite social bookmarking communities for webmasters and bloggers. It has a strong following and provides a good do follow backlink with the potential for some decent traffic. The site is designed very well and is a great example of really making a social bookmarking site stand out from all the rest.

I’ve been link building with Flixya because it’s a great site that combines social media such as videos, photos and articles into one giant website. You can add your videos, photos and the juicy part is that you can write an article and get a do follow link within your “About Author” section. Flixya also is a revenue sharing website so not only can you get a backlink and traffic, but you can get some adsense revenue for your efforts. I imagine after another year of link building on all these types of sites and I’ll get a decent monthly income. This site promotes quality and unique content so best get out your thinking cap and write something good.

I’ve been on a mission today to find some good spots to build links, and I’ve found another great site with a lot of content and users that provides a do follow back link as well as revenue sharing. Xomba has been running for just over 2 years and the site has show very impressive growth. The site provides a great place to write some content, share bookmarks and in the end get that do follow link.

Triond is a cool newish revenue sharing website that also provides a few places to get a do follow backlink to your site. Triond takes your original content and if approved, publishes it on other websites that they feel is the most related to your content. This will also get you a do follow link from their bookmarking system under your user profile passing all sorts of link juice around.

I’ve also just launched the Link Building Forums and I’m hoping to attract a lot of new good members who love the science of link building. I want to get people from the link building and SEO community to become moderators and build a reputable source of information on the web. It’s going to be a little slow building up at first so I urge any nice bloggers out there to give us a blog post to let their readers know about it.

Loren Baker from Search Engine Journal did a speach on link building thats well worth the watch. Loren is a seasoned vet in the game and is a pleasure to listen to or read what he has to say at any time. This video runs a little but long but I assure you it’s well worth the watch.

Will Critchlow wrote a great article entitled “Using Your While Business To Build Links“. No surprise that an article from SEOmoz has made the rounds again, and it’s because they’re always talking about something new. Will covers on what big business can do to build links because the wealth of power and resources they have. A lot of companies still have no idea the possibilites of link building they could be throwing on the table;

There are a few situations where I would disagree with the conclusion that you always get a mess when you add new marketing to old businesses, particularly in SEO. Understanding the basics of SEO (not even linkbait, etc., but just keyword research and basic technical on-page SEO) can be enough to form a valuable sales channel for old-school businesses.

I hope you got something out of this weeks links. I’m going to be hard at work with the new forums, podcast and research to find new links. I’d also like to find some new people to work with on some new projects in affiliate marketing, so if anyone wants to partner up with a link builder let me know. Take care everyone and keep sending me your thoughts, comments and wisdom!

Link Building With Uvouch.com

August 23  |  Link Building  |   Ryan Clark

Uvouch is another social media site that almost has too much crap going on all over the place. I feel cluttered and my personal web space intruded on but hey, there are links to be had. I didn’t spen too much time musing around the site, and I eventually made my way over to the blog section. If you publish a blog on Uvouch the links you can create in your content are do follow, which is great in my books. I’d much rather have a link in the content instead of the usual link in the author bio. The site is also decent for getting views on your videos incase you’re doing a social media campaign, and you can use embed codes from all the popular tube sites.
