Hi BHW Members, just wanted to share my tips & advice with you guys. I started up a Tech Blog in August 2012, I was essentially wanting it to be a tech authority site (I suck at writing posts on it so it's not doing too well.) I was tired of doing SEO to try and rank my site all day but luckily I managed to get PR4 on my blog in just 4 months (August-December 2012.) These tips might be old/useless to some, but it worked perfectly for me. Noobs can use it as an inspiration if they like My method is simple; this is exactly what I did step by step to achieve PR4; Create a Youtube account and link your website to it by adding it as a link on your channel page. Make a YouTube video reviewing your site (or similar); make sure to put your URL at the top of the description. Then, blast it with likes using addmefast or a similar website. This will make it so your backlink will appear on any user's page that liked your videos . Get at least 20 likes. Go on pinterest and create an image that links to your website. Then, blast it with a load of re-pins (at least 20), which will again make your backlink appear on other user's pinterest page. Create a twitter account and tweet out your site URL. Give it a few retweets for good measure. Use twitterfeed to auto tweet your new posts if it's a blog. Go to formspring.me, signup and follow and bunch of random teenagers/people. They will most likely follow back. Then ask a question saying "Do you think yoursite. com is cool?" this will get you a nice backlink and some traffic. You can repeat this if you like. Sign up for google plus and make some posts with your URL in. Use addmefast/similar to get a few +1's! Sign up for triberr and try to join a tribe. Import some of your posts if it's a blog. Again, you'll get a few nice backlinks. Go to "linkli.st" and make a list related to your keyword. Add all your websites links! If you're signed up with any forums, add your link to your signature. Even if the forum isn't related to your keyword, it helps a lot. Use commentluv if you have wordpress. This makes SEO/Make Money blogs love your site and list it on their "CommentLuv enabled blog lists." be prepared for a lot of spam comments though (askimet takes care of 97% of my spam comments). If you're using a new product on your site/blog ask the creator if you can write a testimonial on their site in exchange for a backlink. Create a facebook page, post your site's URL and blast it with at least 20 shares using addmefast/similar. Create a weebly, freewebs, blogspot and wordpress.com blog and write a random post. An easy way to get a free post is to find a spanish/french article and translate it to English using google translate. Post the article then embed your site's url in these sites. Go to Digg and Stumbleupon and add your URL. You can try reddit but the community will take your ass down if they find out your just looking for backlinks Submit your blog to technorati. This helps A LOT with SEO. Also create a guest post on technorati. You can implement your adsense with your guest post. I made £5 when I wrote a guest post on technorati! Do Manual blog commenting. This has helped me a lot with my SEO. Now for my MOST important SEO trick; guest posts on High PR blogs. This may seem like the boringest thing ever, but it works wonders. Just type on google "Guest Post tech blog" or similar relating to your niche to find guest posts. I usually only post on blogs PR3+. Maximum 3 guest posts per blog, unless it's a PR5+ blog! Make sure you use posts with proper grammar. I get about 5 guest posts a week to my blog and some of the ones I get are horrible. I didn't really ping any of my backlinks, I let Google find them naturally. Not sure if that played a role in my PR success or not. Also, always use anchor text backlinks where possible. All of these are my opinion of what works so yeah. If it doesn't work for you I'm sorry but it definitely worked for me. If this post helped you, please click the thanks button or signup for my addmefast referral link!! I posted an image of my PR below and some of my backlinks. The blacked out ones are blog comments or guest posts.
