  10. 10. SEO Footprints – Backlinks Made Easy Page 9 of 176 Copyright © 2009 Greg White, Social Buzz Master http://socialbuzzmaster.com INTRODUCTION Are you tired of browsing backlink sites list given by other people? Are you tired of waiting once a month to receive your list of 30, 40 50 ore more sites that you can use to build backlinks to your sites. Are you using the same list that THOUSANDS of other internet marketers are using? If you are, have you found that by the time you get to the sites, they’ve shut down the ability to create accounts there, or that you receive angry flames from the webmaster or community members just simply for creating an account? If you have had any of these experiences, perhaps it’s about time you learned how to find them yourself. What Is A Footprint? A footprint is the “track” left on the internet that can be used to locate specific pages on the internet or find specific types of “scripts” that you can submit to. If you’re involved in internet marketing or Search Engine Optimization, this is important. One of the best ways to grab a mountain of backlinks to your sites is to identify a particular type of site, or script that runs specific sites, (a platform), and ways to find lots more sites just like them. What’s even better when searching for footprints is that you can add your keywords to it as well. You identify these sites by their ‘footprints’ which are the tracks they leave. When we know what the footprint looks like, we can run queries on Google and other search engines, which allows us to identify in what parts of the page, or site, the footprint is located, and find lots of these sites. This topic may be a little difficult to understand, INITIALLY, but is really easy when you have a few examples, which I’m going to provide you in just a moment.

Which means that links from many IP addresses is a good thing, even if they don’t have great page rank.

  13. 13. SEO Footprints – Backlinks Made Easy All of the above searches return hundreds of links, but what are you looking for. You’re looking for links that lead you to sites where you can leave your own link. And remember, you can make your searches as broad or as narrow as you need in order to get the information you need. Once you find these links, you can check out the Page Rank, the IP Address to determine ‘IP Diversity’, and if you want, you can check out the WhoIs information to determine the owner, etc. Know the Platforms Review the Table of Contents. I’ve provided you with a starting point for search for a variety of Categories of sites and variety of Platforms within those Categories where you can get backlinks. Page 12 of 176 What Are You ACTUALLY Looking For? Once you know these then finding the sites is peace of cake. Copyright © 2009 Greg White, Social Buzz Master http://socialbuzzmaster.com Basic Query The easiest and most basic search you can use when looking for the various “Platforms” is the “Powered By” query. You simply take the phrase “powered by” and the entire platform name or the first part, (e.g., “powered by [platform]”, “powered by phpbb”) Examples: "Powered by vbulletin" "Powered by phpbb" "Powered by pligg" The reason we do this is because most of the platforms you’re looking for, by default, have these signatures/footprints in their products. Sometimes it’s in the ‘footer’/bottom
  14. 14. SEO Footprints – Backlinks Made Easy of the page and occasionally in the ‘header’/top of the page. I’ve even seen them not visible on the page but commented out in the HTML source code inside the page. This method can also be used to find all types of platforms, (e.g., social bookmarking sites, forums, social networking sites, video sharing sites and more.). Also remember IP Diversity when you begin your search for these platforms. This is critical for Google rankings. Contrary to popular opinion, Page Rank is not necessarily always more important than IP Diversity. You can also identify a unique piece of a url in each platform, for example: In Pligg, there is a function for searching stories, the Pligg platform uses the following url: Therefore you can use one of the Query Operators, (inurl:), that you will learn later, to locate urls that contain this piece of url within it: Page 13 of 176 http://pliggsite.com/shakeit.php Copyright © 2009 Greg White, Social Buzz Master http://socialbuzzmaster.com inurl:/shakeit.php Query Operators can be combined with other Query Operator, Search Terms, or Keywords, to produce even more specific results. For instance the Pligg Platform uses a url that contains “register.php” as part of the url for the signup / account creation page. However many other platforms also use “register.php” for the same process. So just because you find a page that contains “register.php” in the url does not necessarily mean that it is the ‘Pligg Platform”. Another interesting aspect of Google search operators like
  15. 15. SEO Footprints – Backlinks Made Easy If you just want to collect the sites just do it, check the PR later with one of the Bulk Page Rank tools in the Resources Section in the back. Now I said the platforms by default have those signatures, but what if the social bookmark sites' owners decided to remove them? They will actually, most of the sites that you can find using the above method would be sites with lower PR, most is 3 or even 4. This is how you find sites from "more serious" owners and the chance to get higher PR social bookmark sites, Page 14 of 176 inurl:register.php is that you can add a niche or keyword after the term e.g. inurl:register.php weight loss Copyright © 2009 Greg White, Social Buzz Master http://socialbuzzmaster.com

  27. 27. SEO Footprints – Backlinks Made Easy You can easily replicate these queries to fit your needs, and it is highly scalable. You can find .edu, .gov, and if you are lucky, .mil blogs. If you are not as picky, you can just search specifically for the blogs without the .edu or .gov extension, and you can find some high pageranked blogs on the first pages of results. Play around with it, enjoy it, it’s free! Then of course you know how to drop a link on the comments. Most of these will not be “do follow” links, but just the fact that you can get .gov and .edu links is very important. Government links are just about the most trusted websites on the internet. You can't just oneday decide to register a .gov or .edu site, and go out and register one without having a ‘trusted organization’ first. So since there aren’t many of us that own our own university, this is the next best thing. Heres a few examples. Google query: site:.gov blog [or site:.edu blog] Results in: Google finds any .gov website that is running a blog or has a /blog/ directory. You can then visit these blogs and post comments (if you can find wordpress blogs like this one), and get hundreds of free .gov backlinks. [Alternative queries: ‘blog’ ‘blogs’ ‘wordpress’ ‘comment’ ‘guestbook’ ‘2007' ‘2006'] Google query: site:.edu *your niche* + blog For example: site:.edu internet marketing blog The top result is a .edu blog that links to a non edu blog, but that blog is related and is PR3 and has edu backlinks. That is also a great relevant place to comment, even if it is not directly a .edu. On the other hand, the third result was a PR3 highly related .edu internet marketing blog with zero comments. That is easy .edu backlinks! Page 26 of 176 EDU AND GOVERNMENT SITE FOOTPRINTS Copyright © 2009 Greg White, Social Buzz Master http://socialbuzzmaster.com

  40. 40. SEO Footprints – Backlinks Made Easy Social Network Platforms Footprints According to Wikipedia, a social network service focuses on building online communities of people who share interests and/or activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others. Most social network services are web based and provide a variety of ways for users to interact, such as e-mail and instant messaging services. Social networking has encouraged new ways to communicate and share information. Social networking websites are being used regularly by millions of people. While it could be said that email and websites have most of the essential elements of social network services, proprietary encapsulated services gained popularity in the first decade of the 21st century. The main types of social networking services are those which contain category divisions (such as former school-year or classmates), means to connect with friends (usually with self-description pages) and a recommendation system linked to trust. Popular methods now combine many of these, with Facebook widely used worldwide; MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn being the most widely used in North America;[1] Nexopia (mostly in Canada);[2] Bebo,[3] Hi5, StudiVZ (mostly in Germany), iWiW (mostly in Hungary), Tuenti (mostly in Spain), Decayenne, Tagged, XING;[4], Badoo[5] and Skyrock in parts of Europe;[6] Orkut and Hi5 in South America and Central America;[7] and Friendster, Mixi, Multiply, Orkut, Wretch, Xiaonei and Cyworld in Asia and the Pacific Islands and Areapal in India.

  59. 59. SEO Footprints – Backlinks Made Easy Blog Footprints According to Wikipedia, a blog (a contraction of the term "weblog")[1] is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog. Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (artlog), photographs (photoblog), sketches (sketchblog), videos (vlog), music (MP3 blog), and audio (podcasting). Micro-blogging is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts.

The Wordpress KeywordLuv plug-in helps you reward your visitors who comment on your blog…. by separating their name from their keywords. For example, if you go to a blog which uses the KeywordLuv plug-in and comment on that blog, you simply enter Riggie@Internet Business in the name field instead of just Riggie, for example. The symbol @ does the trick here. Page 61 of 176 Keyword(s) “Enable CommentLuv” No Follow Free Blog: keyword “Comments links could be nofollow free” The title of a comment in the blog would now look like : Riggie from Internet Business says : Copyright © 2009 Greg White, Social Buzz Master http://socialbuzzmaster.com instead of : Riggie says : This allows you to get a targeted link for the term "internet business". As you can see, this plug-in allows a visitor to enter his name and his targeted keyword link back to his site. It's a win-win for the blog owner and the visitor.

  66. 66. SEO Footprints – Backlinks Made Easy Getting backlinks from forums is often thought of as spam. Neverthelelss, forums are a very valuable tool for backlink developers, as long as you use good methods. Member ‘Signatures’ in forums are a fair place to promote your site. Forum members can see your link and click on it if they are interested. In order to get your signature seen by members though, you have to make a post or a comment. This increases the risk of your account getting deleted. Sometimes webmasters would delete your account because they think your signature is not consistent with the theme of the site or is ‘spammy’. A safer way to use forums to get backlinks is to find those that have links in profiles that are publicly viewable. Publicly viewable profiles get indexed by the search engines and fly under the radar of the forum. I'm not advocating flying under the radar entirely. But you can gain a good link until you have time to lurk around the site and make a good post. Forums often receive a tremendous amount of traffic, and they often have great authority with the search engines. How many times have you searched for something online and discovered that a lot of the top links were to forums? Some forums use the tag “rel=nofollow” on their links, especially the link in signatures and posts. This tag tells search engines not to follow those links, rendering them useless from a purely SEO standpoint. Page 65 of 176 FORUM & COMMUNITY FOOTPRINTS Copyright © 2009 Greg White, Social Buzz Master http://socialbuzzmaster.com
  67. 67. SEO Footprints – Backlinks Made Easy Of course, those links are still extremely useful if the forum gets a significant amount of traffic. People will see your posts and visit your links, so they are still important. Still, if your main purpose is to get backlinks, you need to check the links on each forum to make sure the links do not have the “rel=nofollow” tag on them. Rules regarding signatures and links in posts vary widely from forum to forum, so it’s important to check every forum carefully. A forum signature is a small section of text (and sometimes images) that you can set to appear at the end of every post you make. Some forums allow links in signatures, and some don’t. Others allow certain types of links, but not others. I find that most crochet patterns work perfectly well as they are presented, but occasionally I have to modify them to get them to work. So if the one you’re using isn’t working, you might try making a few minor changes to it and see if it works. The section of text after the horizontal line is the signature section, and the rest of the text would be the actual forum post. In your signature, you should link to your site, making sure to follow the rules regarding signatures. Don’t call attention to your signature in any way, because this is a good way to get banned. Even if you don’t get banned, you could end up alienating people who begin to see you as an opportunistic spammer instead of a potentially trusted authority. Page 66 of 176 You also need to check the forum rules carefully. A signature might look like this: Visit my blog: Blog Marketing Tactics And my website: How to Market Your Blog Effectively Copyright © 2009 Greg White, Social Buzz Master http://socialbuzzmaster.com
