Ive been doing some link building for a few weeks now. Mostly been using A&P's strategy by creating forum profiles and dropping links. I'm not sure how effective it is but its easy to do and you can create profiles and drop several links in no time flat. I use roboform to create the profiles and this speeds up the process immensely. Especially if you use the custom fields to fill in username and password. I even use it to automatically check the I agree to the terms box. Then you fill in the captcha and submit. Well back to the point of my post! I had been struggling to find ******** blogs to comment on that wasn't moderated and found it to be a real pain in the ass. So I thought lets check the competition and see where they are dropping links and copy them. I use check-backlink.com because it shows the PR of their backlink, anchor text they use, if it is nofollow, and other useful stuff. It also shows the PR of all the internal links. Well I stumbled on a little trick to get a better link than my competition. As far as I have figured this only works for blog commenting and only on the ones that post your comment on the same page of the blog post. If it takes you to a seperate comment page then I don't think its as effective as you only get the PR juice of the comment page which is 0. Someone correct me on that if I am wrong! MY method (finally) Get the url of your competitors site. Open 2 windows with check-baclink.com. In your first window paste in the url of your competitor. Set the results to at least 100 (or more!) Check the page rank, nofollow, and remove internal links boxes. Hit submit and wait for results. Now you have a list of backlinks to their site that shows the PR and whether or not it is a nofollow link. You are looking for blogs that they have commented on. These are live links so you can click them and it takes you to the page they get their link from. I usually click the link and check out the site to see how the commenting is done and a few other things. Now how to outdo them. If they have a pr1 or 2 link back to their site. Chances are that the blog may have higher pr pages than that to comment on. So heres what you do. Grab the url of the blog you wanna check. Open up the second window with backlink.com and paste the url. Set the results and check the PR and nofollow boxes. Do not check the remove internal links box as this is what we are looking for. Hit the submit button and wait for results. Now you have a list of the blogs links. We are only looking at the internal links and the PR of these pages. Find a page with a higher PR than your competitors link, slap down a comment with your link in it and BAM! You just outdid his ass! He has a PR2 link and you just snatched a PR4. Rinse and repeat! (HA HA....always wanted to say that!) Now this may be a bit time consuming and there are probably better methods than this. But I stumbled on it and thought I would share with yall. You can ask me all the questions you want about backlinks but I probably can't answer. CAUSE I DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT IT! Thats the reason I stumbled on this method (out of pure frustration!) Well any tips or tricks from the big dogs about how to improve or automate this would be cool. If someone could make a tool to do this automatically I would be happy to share in your profits from it. But would prefer it be free to BHW! I would say "If you like it hit the thanks or rep button!" But I see that shit all the time and frankly it kind of makes me sick. This is my first share and I only do it to pass on something that may help some of the other frustrated link builders out there. Besides, I never would have stumbled on this without BHW! Thanks yall and hope someone gets some use out of this!
