(Note: with double-click on the "Organize Websites and Backlinks Sources" image you can see the whole bigger picture of this)
I wrote several articles about "How to Increase Website Traffic and Bring a Lot of New Visitors to Your Web Content on a Constant Basis". I emphasis there the importance of drawing a constant flow of traffic to your content and the major part of the ways to do this imply building backlinks. And once you start implementing your own "get more website traffic" plan– you will need a way to organize the sites and backlinks.
There are many ways to keep track of them – usually by using spreadsheets and edit them every time a new one goes live in the cyberspace. This is not very satisfactory as it is tedious and the failure in keeping the sheets updated is likely and easily to happen. This is the reason why I came up with my own system in order to simplify the task. It involves minimum work from your part - far less than the one mentioned above. Instead of spreadsheets I suggest you to use the RoboForm - secure password manager and generator to keep all your info organized – meaning to keep track of all your websites and backlink sources for a webpage. So how exactly does this work?
I created once a folder in the RoboForm manager where I add 20 (more or less) subfolders named by the alphabet letters. The first folder is "@Template" which contains a 'template' bookmark where I added several row of info related to the different aspects of an article covered in a Detailed Checklist for Writing Online Articles like:
- 1. Right Category
- 2. Keywords Density
- 3. Photos - OK/NO/Yes but Bad
- 4. Format
- 4.1. Title - right capitalized
- 4.2. H3 - colors and proportion
- 4.3. Colors
- 4.4. Font
- 4.5. Justify - YEs/NO
- 5. Seo
- 5.1. 2 internal links - self and profile
- 5.2. 5 other contextual internal links
- 5.3. 2 external links (1+1)
- 5.4. formatting of the main keyword - once bold, once italic, once H3
- 5.5. keyword in the last sentence
- 6. Call to action
- 7. Signature - [Affiliate link] + [Related Article list]
- 8. Tags
- 9. Amazon keywords
- 10. CopyScape code + banner - Yes/No
- 11. Related articles section
- 12. Backup Copy - YEs/NO
- 13. Broken links on page - YEs/No
- 14. Inbound Links Total - ?
- 15. IB internal links Total ?
Every time I have a new article/blog post or any new url – I save it in a separate folder in my RoboForm manager and name with the exactly same name as the url. I add it in the appropriate subfolder depending on the first letter in the title so that I will easily find them later on. Then here will be the place where all others link related to this one will be saved – either they are bookmarks or videos or any other type of promotion. Also – what's nice is that instead of a bookmark you can save as a passcard – and this means you can add multiple text notes as pairs of field name + the content of field on it. This way you not only will know at a glance where a specific article was promoted but you will have also all the links there – and little to edit manually (just bookmark every time you add a new backlink or a new article/blog post/video/etc… under the subfolder named after the promoted article/webpage + add if necessary some notes on it – see how I use this in "@Template"). It is easy to copy or save the bookmark in several places as you can have 2 or more backlinks in a single article for instance.
In closing of "How to Organize Your Websites and Backlinks Sources - the Better, Easiest and Fastest Way" article I like to express my opinion that this system will make your life easier if you find yourself in a similar situation (meaning - a lot of sites, articles and backlinks) so let me know trough the comments section below if this was useful.
