I did one of these little guides for my 100th post (here) so I thought I might as well do one for my 250th. This time the site we're leveraging for links is Slides .com.

The site is currently DR82, TF39 and DA80 for those of you interested in third party metrics.

Guide

1) Sign up for a free account
Code:
https://slides.com/users/sign_up?plan=free

Fill in the form to include a username (you might want to use branding or keywords here), an email address (there is no email verification, so you can put whatever email you want here), and a password. Then, complete the captcha by dragging the green circle into the dashed grey circle. This captcha is nice, easy and elegant, but is the only thing currently stopping me from automating submission!

You should now be signed up to the site.

2) Edit your profile
Code:
https://slides.com/users/edit

This is the form we are leveraging for a nice juicy contextual do-follow link. To do this we'll be putting our text in the description field. However, by default this is limited to 250 characters. To bypass this we'll be doing a bit of in-browser html editing. Right click on the description box, and choose 'inspect' from the context menu.

This will open up developer tools and highlight the description box html. You'll see the maxlength attribute there.

Double click on the maxlength and delete the entire attribute, including the '="250"'. Then press enter to save it.

Now you can add whatever text you want to the description box without being limited. Paste in your article, and add whatever links you want to is using standard <a> tags. The site seems to strip out any other html tags, so you'll have to do without any other formatting here. Last thing to do here is add something in the 'full name' field. I go with an article title to add some relevance. Click on 'save changes' and you're done! You can now click on your username in the top right of the screen to see your parasite page.

Code:
https://slides.com/blackhatworld

(apologies the text content quality, the article I pasted there was what my local copy of GPT2 spewed out!)

Extra Step 1) You can add more content to your page by adding slide decks using the site's 'new deck' section.

There you have it! The created page will be orphaned, so you'll need to build some links to it to get any traction out of it, but it can be indexed and cached pretty easily.

Happy backlinking!

Sound share mate. I've been using Slides for a few years now as a parasite for CPA offers and always been happy with it.

Think it's time to delve back into it and use it to make a link for my new journey.

One strange thing: I couldn't find it in the profile page's source, but SEO Minion reports
IndexableNo (header)
FollowableNo (header)

Thanks OP for the great share. I also wonder what is the tactic to find these opportunities.
Easy mode: Study backlink profiles on ahrefs, or install a honeypot guestbook on a domain with semi-high SEO metrics. You can then see what other people are using for backlink sources.
Hard mode: Spend lots of time researching sites you can register on and submit any sort of text information, try and get some html in there, see if you can locate a page where this html is displayed, hope it's indexable, rinse, repeat ;)

You're right, there were noindex and nofollow tags in the x-robots-tag http header, which would be preventing indexing. So I added a slide deck with minimal content (30 seconds work) and the http header seems to be gone.

So anyone reading this, the extra step is MANDATORY if you want your page to be indexable!​

Thanks for the share! I am still learning but for the description, Do I just copy the exact blog post, or should I spin it?
