    Whatz a Fricken Backlink?
    And how do I get 'em!
    by HaRRo


    One of the biggest factors of ranking high in the search engines is other websites linking to yours. And one of the most often asked questions on Blackhatworld is....... Wait for it........... How or where do i get them.

    Cbox Links - CBox; a Tagboard software that bloggers and website owners can add to their website. It works much like the Wordpress comments part of the wordpress script only its a simple shoutbox type script that you can throw a few links onto.
    Google query to find an updated list of sites running this vulnerable software: allintext:[get a cbox]

    Two Quick free links - Two simple ones that you have probably seen around a lot when your searching for sites is the aboutus.org and the wiki directory , these can just be thrown up in about 1 minute flat, and make sure in the wiki directory you add some related categories for better potential. They should get you indexed pretty fast.

    Referer Spamming - Quite a simple method and a software called PRstorm thats found around this board should easily get you started, you add in the urls you want to referer spam, and the ones you want to be linked. This shows up in referer logs and you can easily get a fresh list by searching sites with referer logs with good PR or those sites with the My top referers list. Yes you can find PRstorm around this forum somewhere.

    Unlimited free .edu and .gov links - Another great potential is edu and gov links as Google and others give authority over these types of domain extentions.
    The 'site:' feature in Google allows only results with that domain name or domain extension to show up. You can "hack" this feature to allow Google to find the most relevant university and government websites related to your sites.

    Heres a few examples.
    Google query: site:.gov blog [or site:.edu blog]
    Results in: Google finds any .gov website that is running a blog or has a /blog/ directory. You can then visit these blogs and post comments (if you can find wordpress blogs like this one), and get hundreds of free .gov backlinks.
    [Alternative queries: ‘blog' ‘blogs' ‘wordpress' ‘comment' ‘guestbook' ‘2007′ ‘2006′]

    Google query: site:.edu *your niche* + blog
    For example: site:.edu internet marketing blog
    The top result is a .edu blog that links to a non edu blog, but that blog is related and is PR3 and has edu backlinks. That is also a great relevant place to comment, even if it is not directly a .edu. On the other hand, the third result was a PR3 highly related .edu internet marketing blog with zero comments. That is easy .edu backlinks!

    You can easily replicate these queries to fit your needs, and it is highly scalable. You can find .edu, .gov, and if you are lucky, .mil blogs. If you are not as picky, you can just search specifically for the blogs without the .edu or .gov extension, and you can find some high pageranked blogs on the first pages of results. Play around with it, enjoy it, it's free! Then ofourse you know how to drop a link on the comments.

    Edu Guestbooks - Guestbooks can too be quite good for dropping backlinks and if you want a few edu ones with good PR heres a small list below. Ill not go into detail on how to add your link as im sure you will all know, anyway heres the links.

    PR5
    http://lsa.colorado.edu/guestbook-add.html
    http://www.campusrec.neu.edu/partsearchten/guestbook.html

    PR4
    http://www.studentorg.umd.edu/phibetasigma/guestbook.php
    http://nsa.union.rpi.edu/Guest/nsagb.php

    PR3
    http://www.public.iastate.edu/~bethanyt/guestbook.html
    http://www.uaf.edu/webauthors/wagb.html

    PR2
    http://cratel.wichita.edu/guestbook/pblguestbook.php?action=view

    These are just a few just remember the trick i taught before this on searching google queries for edu links only you can use the + guestbook or whatever name is of a script you know of like vBulletin.

    RSS Feed Directories - This ones for the bloggers and forum owners too, anything really with an RSS feed, even if you fake an RSS feed and randomize it, it can still work.
    Here is a good list of places to submit your feeds or you can use those automated software like RSS Announcer or Submitter, Or Bloggergenerators free blog and ping tools, theres a ton out there.

    Tagbox Linkdropping - Another like the Cbox is Tagbox it works the exact same way.
    Powered by Tagbox

    Contests - Contests are a good way of word of mouth or bloggers blogging about it, another good example is a giveaway for say the person who sends the most traffic to you, you can use a link trading script to check whos best or a referer script to see which person sends the most, this will bring links to you if you work it smartly.

    Digging - Digging the same as any network like such brings an incredible amount of backlinks and gets the buzz around fast. You can use things like Piqq, which is a digg exchange, you can check my Piqq invites thread for an invite

    Digg Comments - Digg comments can get you a few links and the latest comment is always usually at the top. So its an idea maybe to post on the popular diggs.

    Commenthunt - Most of you already know this but commenthunt searches blogs without nofollow tags its a search engine type thing you can search for relevent blogs the url is http://www.commenthunt.com

    Oggix.com - heres another shoutbox type way of backlinks Check This Query and get dumping links.

    A Free EDU blog of your own - Get a free EDU blog of your own or many just by signing up heres the link. Free Edu Blog

    Digitalpoint CO-Op Network - Another one that can work in some cases.
    Digitalpoint developed a mass link exchange program called the DP Co-op Advertising Network (aff). After signing up, you then add 3-5 links on every one of your pages, and this earns you more linking power (coop weight). The more weight you have, the more links to your site you receive from other members in the coop. You can choose up to 15 anchor texts and there are over 30,000,000 available links in the network today. Sites have been using it to rank #1 for "Debt" "credit cards" "bankruptcy" and "loans." Such a simple method is allowing them to outrank massive authority sites like Wikipedia, but the main concern is how long will this gravy train last and when will Google do something about it?

    Google staff already know about the network, but have not yet done anything to prevent people from quickly ranking for popular terms. I just want to clarify that I would NOT recommend this technique to anyone that is going to be doing a long term link building campaign for their blogs, but I would recommend it for "made for adsense" sites, and even blackhat/greyhat temporary high profit earning sites.

    Flickr Spamming - Flickr allows comments on photos taken by other people, now you can go wild and mass comment but i wouldnt recommend it, instead pick suitable pics about your niche and simply write a comment saying something smart like can i use this picture on my blog here, then drop your link, or go wild and do it anywhere.

    Article Submission - If you have a product thats going to be released or a new site, its best to get the word around fast, using something like Article Equaliser or something that mass submits to a ton of article directories, this builds fast backlinks but sometimes takes time to get approved, and its best not using spammy type articles but interesting ones work better. And you'll find that a lot of other sites scrape article sites for there own content. Giving even more backlinks.

    Using Software - You can also use software like Internet Business Promoter, I prefer version 8, because it scans the engines for you, and gets links using keywords, to semi-automatically fill link submission forms to niche related directories. It works well and although is a slow process works perfectly.

    Final thoughts
    :jerry:​

    Just as Jerry Springer has his final thoughts id like to just say im missing out a ton of methods including forum signatures, and things like that, this was a quick requested thread so i throw it up to get ideas flowing, feel free to add more in.

    I have also left out custom scripts that auto spam and softwares as such, this is a post just to open the eyes up of some people and realise that you dont have to look for software to be able to get fast links.

    That's interesting. I'm glad you posted that, because I was just searching for some of the same information.

    I believe as from the latest Google pr update that back links are no longer weighted as highly as they once where, apparently the new algorithm looks more at content type and fresh content more than your back links and keywords, I'm sure this still helps a little, but updating your site with fresh, relevant content is supposedly better than achieving mass amounts of back links

    What a great list of ways to get backlinks! This list has raised a bunch of questions for me that I would love to get help with.

    1. How does Cbox help you to build links?

    2. What is a referer spam?

    3. Have you ever used Bookmarking Demon to gain back links? Do you think it is effective? I have it and have been using it for all of my sites. I definitely see my inlinks at Yahoo Explorer increasing, but not necessarily my rankings.

    4. My comment in three leads me to this main question. How effective are these links at increasing your SERP position? I mean can I use these to rank in the top 10 for keywords with 1,000,000 pages also focusing on these keywords? What is the sweet spot as far as competing pages goes that I should set as my upper limit?

    Thanks all.

    Add also submitting to Social bookmark sites. You mentioned Digg, and its a good one, although there are a number of others out there to dump on.

    This is a great thread and of great interest to me becasue this is where I fail the most.

    Is the part that I've put in bold link injection? and if so could you expand on it please. I've a (lightweight) script that does the job but I am not convinced I am getting the best out of it.

    Great thread Harro, Very informative.
    I also didn't fully get the one about moveabletype backlinking iether, I read the post but for some reason still didn't get it and it seemed like a lot of work to get a link when we need to get thousands of links. Could you please elaborate on that one more.
    Also I do agree that google isn't valueing backlinks like they have in the past. That hurts me also as an adsense publisher I try to build a lot of sites and interlink them along with some of the other linking methods mentioned here. But I have found it difficult to keep updateing the sites and they tend to loose ranking after a while. Someone suggested the CARP script but don't know much about it.
    Would be kewl to explain that a little or start a new thread on keeping sites updated and fresh.
    thanks

    Great post buddy. Its really enlightening.

    I have different view on one of the points mentioned above.
    Spamming Cbox will not help more. When you add a link in a cbox, the back link will not be counted from the site which have cbox on it, it will be treated as a link from cbox website.
    So instead of getting many links from many different sites, you will be getting links from a same site.

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Anyways backlinks are always good.. so let them coming. :)
