My list of backlink sites that pay
Where there is a referral those links lead to my referral link; if you want to sign up under someone else, or not at all under someone else, feel free to doctor the link. If you friend me on any of those sites, and vote for the articles I have submitted that you like, I will look at your articles and vote for the ones I like (on most of these sites there is a way to see who has voted for your articles). If anyone has any more backlink sites that pay that I have missed, please let me know. My "50 Ways to Make a Dollar a Day Online" article is almost finished . . . . just waiting on the ability to refer people on a site or two.
Classicalgeek, thanks for this list! I am about to finish my 100th article and backlinking for them on Shetoldme, Snipsly and Xomba as well as a few other sites. I was getting ready to do some investigating of other revenue sites and this helps a ton. I will sign up for a few under your referral in a few days. Thanks!
You're welcome! If you have a list of more backlinking sites that pay, please post them here! (Senserely seems to be blocking new users from joining: I get access denied when I try to join.) Also there are other sites like tagfoot and qondio, but you have to pay to join them. These are free to join.
Great list CG. I've been a member of RedGage for about a week now and though I wasn't real impressed up until today, I now have only nice things to say about them. I won the Daily Raffle of a $25 gift card. Whoo Hoo. LOL
THANK YOU! I love this forum because everyone is so helpful and sharing.
Don't forget the three-round backlink process if you write for multiple sites:
Write an article for Infobarrel
Write a related article for Site B
Write a second related article for Site C
Link IB article to article on site B, Site B article links to site C, Site C article links to IB. You can repeat this numerous times with niche articles! You can also do the three-round backlink process for articles within IB. This boosts the page rank of all the articles.
Exactly what I plan to do with my blog sites. When it's all said and done, I'm hoping to have my blog posts linked to Howie's Squidoo pages, linked to Info Barrel, and etc.... Once I get a couple finished, I'm going to post the link and that way if anyone else has something they want to add to the group, we can get them all linked up together.
BTW Classic, this is an awesome list.
Nice list, thanks for sharing. I have been looking for a list of sources such as this.
That is a great list, thanks for sharing!
just a question about backlinks. How many have seen their traffic increase due to using backlinks? Does anyone have actual figures?
About 10% of my traffic at the moment comes from the few backlinks I have put up. I also get ad clicks on the backlinks as well--not often, but a nice bonus. Also there is no way to truly track traffic from backlinks because backlinks increase your search engine authority, so someone coming from google may have come because your site rated higher than it would have otherwise from backlinks.
@classicalgeek thanks for the input!
Thank you for the list and information regarding the backlink process.
@classicalgeek - just curious how much time you spend backlinking compared to writing. Do you do a little each day, or a ton at once?
At the time I started writing, of course, I didn't know about backlinking. Now I do. So I'm behind in my backlinks, and I have currently made it a point to make twenty backlinks a day. This still gives me time to write about 2500 words per day. Since I'm behind on a library of 600 articles, it will take me a while to catch up. (I have a spreadsheet where I keep track of all these articles AND their backlinks, including links from other articles on both IB and other sites.) Once I am done, I will probably write five articles and do backlinks for them. This is just what suits me; what suits someone else may be entirely different. Eventually I may export the spreadsheet to a mind map.
Also my backlinking strategy is a little more complex in that I have a couple of other strategies for linking among articles, so I go back and edit those too -- as I write a new article I look for other articles to link to it, and do the three-way link (which means sometimes I go edit old Xomba bookmarks or articles to get that third link in). And I have another strategy for articles or niches of articles about specific locations; and yet another for linking niche articles all together. Add to that affiliate marketing with amazon and art.com links, and you can see it's a complex job! That's why I tend to do it every few articles. (And on a side note, a thank you to the person who invented tabbed browsing!)
Oh, I wish you had posted these links earlier so I could have had signed up to your referral links. I've just signed up to most of the links you've provided here, though there are still a few more I haven't tried and might sign up soon. Thanks for sharing this! :-)
No worries. I appreciate referral signups but it's not necessary. But you could friend me and vote for the articles of mine you like if you feel the need to thank me other than by just saying "thank you." DoFollowDigg is especially difficult because you need an average of 20 votes per article to submit more than three articles a day, and an average of more votes than that to get your adsense id displayed, but votes on any of these sites would be greatly appreciated. Some of these sites have groups, and we could form an IB group . . . I successfully created one on MyCibb and DoFollowDigg (called InfoBarrel Writers). However, if we set up groups on all these sites that allow it, we could easily find each other and help each other out.
Hey classicalgeek, I just joined infopirate under your link and posted a few bookmarks. It is under another name I use, but I'm sure you'll see the new referral.
Hey classicalgeek, I just joined infopirate and dofollowdigg under your link and didn't post any bookmarks. It is under another name I use, but I'm sure you'll see the new referral.
The above sentence was ingeniously created. hehehehe
A few more:
Carnival of Making Money Online - this is confusing but if you have a bunch of articles and space out their submissions it should work fairly well for you.
Karma Lynx - another confusing one: I'm going to figure this out soon.
DoFollowDigg seems to be down for too much traffic ;)
