More Links! Links! links!

Written by Dale Sexton

My nagging theme these last few issues have been links. The reason I have been harping on this subject is because I have been proving to myself that they arerepparttar key to rankings.

As you know (if you have kept up with these issues) I have been posting onrepparttar 125180 free for all links, then immediately submitting these post torepparttar 125181 search engines. What I have found isrepparttar 125182 search engines are showing more and more links to my URL. Personally I prefer Free Links Finder to do posting on FFA's:

I have been wondering about how I might post to classified ads with such speed. I looked at Classified 98, The Classified Connection and others. They cost some bucks when you don't have them to spend.

So inrepparttar 125183 mean time, I have been working on my own program to submit to classified ads. The program I'm working on has a few bugs in it that I need to work out before I start lettingrepparttar 125184 public use it.

Inrepparttar 125185 course of using this program, I have inadvertently posted to guestbooks, classified, and FFA pages. Inrepparttar 125186 case ofrepparttar 125187 guestbooks, I have been accused of spamming.

Well, as you can see, I can't letrepparttar 125188 program out till I fix this problem. But what if I were to post my URL to guestbooks in a way that does not look like spamming?

What would happen is that my post would stay on that page for a long time, unless it looks like an advertisement. Then you get a nasty note, taken off their guestbook, and banned from their web site if not worse.

I started changingrepparttar 125189 text in my posting. This is what I found has worked best, but play with it if you wish, and decide to post on guestbooks.

1. Always use your name. If you use a company name, they thinks its spam and you getrepparttar 125190 nasty notes.

2. If you use a well known autoresponder for a return email address, you will be accused of spamming. I used my own autoresponder.

What happens is if spammers get my email fromrepparttar 125191 guestbook page I don't getrepparttar 125192 spam. My domain name address is seen on this autoresponder email, so it doesn't look like spam..
