    Before I get banned, the above isn't really for sale and there's no hidden squeeze of affiliate - that bits a little bit of fun, the real thing is a little trick I've been using on blogs with scrapebox and it's giving me good approval results, in fact a lot of webmasters email me thanking them for the link and give me one back, often on their blogroll or on the front page of their site.


    As with everything, this works better if the blogs are related or even slightly related, but I'm sure you guys will just blast the shit out of it either way :p

    First off there are two others on the forum who have added similar scripts, so while I haven't copied them and I believe this takes the idea a step further I will still give credits to them (although as of now their names evade me so I'll edit them in here later).



    The method, now this will be template related but add this to one of your wordpress files via the admin (I use the file home.php and add it just after the header).

    Code:
    <?php
    
    if(isset($_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'])){
    $referrer = parse_url($_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']);
    $domain = $referrer['host'];
    $url = "http://".$domain;
    //Create the fake partner link
    $fakepartners = '<img src="http://www.jaychoustudio.com/themes/jay-chou/images/9stars.gif">  <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org">Wikipedia</a><br />';
    $fakepartners .= '<img src="http://www.jaychoustudio.com/themes/jay-chou/images/8stars.gif">  <a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a><br />';
    $fakepartners .= '<img src="http://www.jaychoustudio.com/themes/jay-chou/images/10stars.gif">  <a href="'.$url.'">'.$domain.'</a><br />';
    $fakepartners .= '<img src="http://www.jaychoustudio.com/themes/jay-chou/images/8stars.gif">  <a href="http://www.yahoo.com">Yahoo</a><br />';
    }
    
    if ($fakepartners && $domain<>'www.yourdomain.com'){
    echo "<div id=\"archivebox\">Like our site? We recommend these other sites:<br />".$fakepartners."</div>";
    }
    ?>
    And now when you enter your comment (manually or scrapebox) end it with something like:

    Code:
    blah blah blah, I've added a link to your site on mine here <a href="yourdomain.com">your domain</a>
    So the site owner is going through his blog and they see your comment, they click on it and they see this:

    [​IMG]


    There URL shows amongst the other 3 urls (change them in the code to be relevant to your site hint so it looks more real) and it also has a nice 5 star rating. They're chuffed to bits and approve the comment and perhaps email you to say thanks.

    Now without stepping through the code, all it does is if the user comes with a referrer it makes that domain the third link on the list and gives it 5 stars. Anyone who visits without a referrer just sees your regular site with no links.

    Again as this isn't a completely fresh idea on here, thanks to the other guys, this is my little twist on it. I was going to use it to try and catapult my way to Jr VIP status but decided to share it with everyone instead :)

    Have fun.

    Larry.

    I thought there was a rule that you had to pay to advertise things if you were selling them, and I didn't want anyone to jump to that conclusion and hit the ban button before they read it :D

    Just a note, in the code there is:

    Code:
    if ($fakepartners && $domain<>'www.yourdomain.com'){
    Obviously you need to replace yourdomain with yourdomain, the purpose of this is to not show the box if the referer is your own site.

    So, are you using Scrapebox for trackbacks to start this process? If so, I assume that you are not just "blasting" a bunch of trackbacks. Are you selecting some that you are specifically targeting since you have to code their domain in the script? Do you just repeat the script if you have more than one site you are trying to get links from?

    Thanks for this, will test it out tonight.

    To make script even better (in case not even comes to your site through link...) you can make it as you've added them to your rotating list of recommended sites... then make sites 1, 2, 4 rotate, while the logic for site 3 stays the same in terms of referrer.


    Might want to get this moved to a Jr. VIP post.

    @blackhatdavid, no I am using comments rather than trackbacks.

    The code uses the referrer provided by the browser and hence there is no need to hard code a target site into the script. As such it will work for multiple targets.

    To OP:

    You should replace this:

    Code:
    if ($fakepartners && $domain<>'www.yourdomain.com'){
    
    With this:

    Code:
    if ($fakepartners && $domain != [B][COLOR="Red"]$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'][/COLOR][/B]){
    
    So normal users won't need to edit anything :D
    Also you need to use cookies to keep track of them, just in case they want to click refresh, so no referrer will be made again and they will be pissed when they don't see any links to their site.

    PS: This is nothing new, so don't need to move anywhere.

    Might be a good idea to put sites similar to theirs but authority ones.

    Doesn't this only work for those who click the link via their wordpress admin section? I took a look at the link I was pushing using bit.ly for scrapebox blasting and noticed 65% are either direct, email, IM, or air apps. Any idea how to deal with those?

    There's no other way if there isn't a referrer, well there probably could be but I think it would over complicate things and by the nature of Scrapebox commenting it probably isn't necessary to go that far.

    @Googlemonster - it won't appear for regular users as there will be no referrer. Also, Yes I choose 3 other authority links in the same genre, this helps the "effect".

    Code:
    if ($fakepartners && $domain != $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']){
    Is a good ammendment to my original script, thanks.

    I did a blast of a 10,000 AA list last week and 8 webmasters contacted me saying thanks and all of them added me to the front page of their sites. These where all sites within the niche my domain was in and hence where very welcome additions to my backlink profile. So far noone has complained the links have "vanished".

    Larry.

    When will you share your 10.000 AA list ?

    Are they really all anonymous alcoholics?

    Would be interest as to how you go with Xrumer and this method, keep us informed as if it works it may convince me to buy it.

    2 amendments:

    1. exclude google/yahoo/bing from the referrer check. you don't want people clicking off the serps to wonder why you're linking back to google.

    2. if you want to still show the link when another site owner refreshes or clicks around this is easy. when they hit the page from a referrer, drop their IP address into a sql table along with the referring site, then simply query that table and show links whenever they visit. You'll have a new best friend!
