    So I recently discovered Moodle and found some Moodles on existing websites with the footprint:

    Code:
    inurl:/moodle/login/signup.php
    A lot of Moodles let you post your own articles there which is what I want (not comments).

    However I noticed that pretty much all of these are private and you have to be signed in to view them, making it useless for SEO as Google won't be able to index the posts. So I'm looking for some other footprints I can use to discover sites where I can post articles.

    Any suggestions?

    Any ideas? My link profile looks pretty bad when it's made up almost entirely of one or two link types.

    This seems to be working:

    Code:
    inurl:/blog/index.php?postid= "KEYWORD"
    For the keyword, I sometimes use common spam words such as loans or louis vuitton handbags, which returns me a nice indexable list.

    I don't know how you intend to scrape, but I would suggest you build a list manually. You should not be having more than 5-10 of those links in your backlink profile anyway.

    Yup, this one is working for me, thanks! Do you know of any others? Doesn't have to be Moodle, I would like to know as many different ones as possible so I can diversify my profile.
