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 are key to rankings.
As you know (if you have kept up with these issues) I have been posting on free for all links, then immediately submitting these post to search engines. What I have found is 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 in 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 letting public use it.
In course of using this program, I have inadvertently posted to guestbooks, classified, and FFA pages. In case of guestbooks, I have been accused of spamming.
Well, as you can see, I can't let 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 changing 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 get 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 from guestbook page I don't get spam. My domain name address is seen on this autoresponder email, so it doesn't look like spam..
