Getting traffic is important in order to earn good revenue from our articles. There are number of methods available and one of them is building backlinks. Gaining quality backlinks to our articles increase the value of our articles in the eyes of search engines.

What is backlink

Wikipedia define Backlinks as incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links - they are incoming links to a website or web page. In basic link terminology, a backlink is any link received by a web node or connection point from another web node. Inbound links were originally important as a primary means of web navigation; their significance lies in search engine optimization. The number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page. The backlinks of a webpage may be of significant personal, cultural or semantic interest: they indicate who is paying attention to that page.

Dec. 26, 2011, I started my backlinks experiment

My backlinks experiment was done with hard works and concentration. It took me almost a day to finish the project. First I had gathered all the things needed for this experiment such as:

  • I copied all the article titles I published at Wikinut - there are about 200 of them.
  • I determined what category each article falls - there are about 15 categories.
  • I regrouped all the article titles according to category.
  • I logged -on to Windows Live Writer - this is owned by Microsoft.
  • Inside Live Writer, I determined the best title for this project.
  • I determined the best and grabbing summary for this experiment.
  • And then I started writing a short article regarding this project.
  • And then on the article body I distributed the summary of all the article titles according to category. Those article titles served as the text words where to link the valid URL links of my articles published at Wikinut.
  • When things done, I started linking those valid URL links of all my articles found at Wikinut site with those article titles or text words.

I used my ten personal blog sites for this backlinks project

After completing all the necessary things needed for this experiment, the next move I done was to distribute the finished product to all my ten personal blog sites. Inside the Live Writer, I created a road map and bridges manually to connect my blog sites with the Live Writer Windows and when it was done, I let Live Writer determined what photos I should use for this project according to the article I had written for the experiment including keywords for the Search Engines Optimization, when it was done I had to use tags and the tags I used here were the categories that those 200 articles fall such as:

  • Business
  • Celebrities
  • Family
  • Fiction Writing
  • Health
  • History
  • Money saving tips
  • News
  • Opinions
  • Philosophy
  • Religion
  • Reviews
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Science
  • Writing

And when things done I proceeded by sending it off to my ten personal blog sites from Live Writer Windows as fast as lightning.

The Impact of the Experiment: 3,483 views my Wikinut pages received on Dec. 27, 2011

These views gave me goose bumps and they break my first recorded total views on October 10, 2011 of 2,429. Until now the aftermath of this experiment is still driving traffic to my Wikinut pages. I used the common way by applying backlinks though in a different approach. And from this experiment, I learned that not just any back link will do. Only those from sites with relevant topics or subjects get counted. So if you wanted to apply backlinks on your article sharing - if you can avoid do not use click here use text words. In addition, to create more backlinks to your articles, you can start talking about them on your blogs, websites, forums and all other sites you are connected with.

My last words: Do not ignore your blog site for article sharing

Blog sites help attract crawlers and visitors to view your articles published at other publishing sites. By sharing them to your blog sites will help boost traffic and views to your article pages as well to the websites that published them. This method is common but you can change your approach in a different way which is legal and no spamming. Here I included the ten blog sites I used for the said project - my intention is to show you the whole matter of the said experiment I done, not just by telling but by showing it too.

We, writers are also considered as businessmen. Our products are in the form of articles, photos and videos and other awesome stuff that we always love to share to other net surfers across the Internet. Normally we always give enough time to create them before we can offer them to some paying sites. And when they are accepted for publication, our next move is not only to sit down but to promote them. We applied different methods to bring them out and reach people across the net.

A lot of people fail to realize that there is a lot of work you need to do to get views. Without views you do not get paid.
It use to be much easier before Google changed the rules!

I agree your point Mark. To promote our articles are also as hard and difficult as when we created them. It also takes times to determine what method we will use. Thanks for your time. Much appreciated.

That is a very good idea because you are just listing your articles at your blog sites, which very well may be of interest to readers there, so it is not inappropriate no matter what the blogs are about, and provide you with backlinks, both ways, which is good for getting better traffic to all your blogs and articles. Good work!
