I'm sure this has been discussed here, but maybe we can revisit it. When promoting feeder sites/blogs you can quickly generate anchor text backlinks using type.pad comments. Here are the steps: 1. Search for type.pad blogs on google. Just search for some text like this: "If you have a TypeKey" or "If you have a TypeKey identity, you can sign in to use it here." 2. Next go to that blog and make a comment. Add your feeder site url and anchor text. 3. Set the firefox Web Developer plugin: Forms > Convert form method > convert POSTS to GETS 4. Preview the comment 5. Copy the preview URL. 6. Promote the preview URL via your usual backlink methods. Here is an example: typepad.com/t/comments?entry_id=45413948&user_id=6090&author=anchor+text&email=jon%40jon.com&url=http%3A%2F%2Fmysite.com&text=not+important&preview=%A0Preview The good thing is this can be automated easily. With a bit of thought you can create a spreadsheet that generates the blog urls and all necessary data automatically. So no need to do a google search. The downside is that these links are no follow, so they only count on yahoo/msn.
