Hello everyone, forum is lookin good. I'm just starting out and have some questions. I think it's correct when I say pinging creates fake traffic... But...If so.... then who knows when traffic is generated to that particular URL. Is this google? same question for bookmarking and linkbuilding. to what extend should I be bookmarking. I can imagine that when building links to links will have an unwanted effect. Or is will it have a good effect? What should someone ping? It's probably a good idea to bookmark and ping blogposts that direct to my site but is it a good idea to ping and bookmark blogposts on wich I have commented with a link to my site? Should I only use search engines to ping or is it good to ping to other online services as well? Asking this because i think BMD and scrapebox work differently when pinging.... BMD really pings "online services + yourwebsite" and scrapebox directly pings "yourwebsite or yourblog + referer". Or am I wrong? advise is welcome!
