    Hey guys, here's just a little idea I just came up with. I have absolutely no idea whether it can be of any use, but thought I'd share it anyway and get it discussed :)

    OK so here's the idea :
    Let's say you have profiles link on pages that have URLs looking like :

    hxxp://[...].com/forums/profile.php?id=119472

    So you want bigG to index this page, so he'll see the link to your money site that is on it.
    Now, how bout tweaking this URL a little bit to have your keyword in it ? I mean, if you know a little bit of php and about the GET method, you'll agree that adding a "ghost" variable in the URL will not change the page it leads to.
    So :

    hxxp://[...].com/forums/profile.php?id=119472&whatever=your-keyword

    gets to the exact same page as

    hxxp://[...].com/forums/profile.php?id=119472

    From the server's point of view, the "whatever" variable is totally useless, and it won't give a damn whether it's in the URL or not. But you still have a URL containing your keyword.
    So when you try and get your backlinks indexed, (by pinging them, or putting them into an rss feed to social bookmark it or whatever), why not getting the tweaked URL indexed instead of the basic one ? From a SE point of view, you may have a backlink on a page that is somehow related to your site, because "your keyword" is in it's URL, instead of having a backlink on a totally random profile page.


    What do you think ?

    To main questions come to my mind about this idea :

    - Can this work (to get the tweaked URL indexed) ?
    Definitly yes : lots of URLs are indexed with GET variables, and no SE (in fact, nobody at all) can tell which one is actually used by the php code on the page and which one is a "ghost" variable.

    - Can this work (in the sense of improving your backlink's value) ?
    That's what I'd like to debate on, because I have no idea of the usefullness of doing such a thing :)

    This looks interesting! Thanks for the post! some input that came to me after reading your post- If you're focusing on getting your link indexed what about instead of making the extra keywords the keywords your trying to rank for, but trending keywords?

    I think Google will soon start to completely ignore links on pages that contain profile.php in their URL. Like they did with domain.com/links a few years ago.
    Give me a single reason they should give any avalue to a profile.php kind of link? They're dumb, I know... what else?

    Actually, profile links was just an example, you could add ghost variables to any URL, and turn

    website.com/page.htm

    into

    website.com/page.htm?something=your-keyword

    Google ignoring profile pages or not is not the matter here...

    the url is not static..
    imagine how the bot would crawl this site.
    The bot will find your profile url without your added keyword
    as original url.It doenst matter if you juice the link with backlinks.
    Gogol will identify the original source.

    You can do it in other way.
    example smf forums:
    put on website your profile link with your anchor keyword like
    seo linking to its own profile ( same page).
    On signature you put your
    links to your seo money site.

    (profile website link , links to itself
    signature links to your sites.)

    That point is interesting, but I'm not so sure this is true.
    I for example have seen a lot of clickbank product's websites indexed with an aff hoplink in their URLs :

    Say the "original url" is website.com ; I've seen many times website.com/?hop=someaffid indexed by G, while the original "website.com" URL is not even indexed !

    Well maybe, I don't know as I don't use such programs.
    I'm used to start doing thing manually and brainstorm along the way to understand exactly what and how everything works (or doesn't), while thinking about ways to improve the method and then I program my own tools that act exactly the way I want things to be done :)

    wow two cool ideas ...
    if I suffix the pages I want indexed with
    ?xXx=KeywordIwantindexed

    and what if google somehow gives "KeywordIwantindexed" weight

    I'm going to try this later with some posts I have targeted locally
    by putting the city and zip at the end...

    and I like the anchor text idea pointing to the profile
    then in the profile pointing to your money site... or where ever needed

    good stuff

    I know you can use this for adsense, the keyword at the end will make your ads more targetted, I know pros do it, just haven't figured it out for wordpress yet

    This is a sample url in sick submitter when using that ping function.

    Code:
    http://www.ufave.us/index.php?action=profile;area=summary;u=xxxx##titlehere
    So in title you can use your title for your homepage..

    Because in your signature you have <a href> bla bla url +keyword, which is the same here as "titlehere" :)

    Couldn't it be done with permalinks?
    For example:
    Code:
    %postname%.html?=my-keyword-here
    or cpa director? Just point it at your own site instead of an affiliate link?
