How to get a backlink to my website from every plugin installation?

Msg#: 4407251 posted 11:56 am on Jan 16, 2012 (gmt 0)

I'm building a plugin for wordpress and joomla and plan to give it away for free. In return, is there a way I can get a backlink from each of the sites it gets installed and used?

I explored few options and someone at this same forum suggested adding the backlink in <noscript> tag. This thread was posted way back in 2007. Does this still hold good? Do Google and other search engines count the text in noscript as a backlink.
My plugin adds a decent feature to the websites by inserting js code on their sites.

Along with this js, I would like to add some code to get a backlink to my website without the knowledge of the plugin user.

Please suggest a right approach.

The right approach would be to try and get the backlink *with* the knowledge of the user. Otherwise you're delving into the territory of hidden links and deception and that's not going to end very well.

hmm.. I agree Marketing Guy.
So if the user himself wanted to hide it from displaying to the public, but like to credit me with a linkback.. how is it possible?

I would like to know the technical possibility from the SEO gurus.
Does Google count the links in the backend code. How do the other guys achieve this?

I'm still waiting to know the possibility of getting this done.
Not sure how other plugin developers are working it.

I was researching and came across few statcounter scripts that use a linkback in a noscript tag. Is this done for SEO juice?

every plug in system has its own eay to install. Plug-In Profit Site is for marketers of all levels. It's also especially useful for the newer marketers who desire a step-by-step system to make real money online with, one which continues to work for thousands even as we speak...

Have it as an option to appear in the widget space or maybe footer. Don't expect a huge accept rate though.

I am agreed with marketing guy that if you will hide you then how can you get backlinks , i want to suggest you that start link building for your site and get high quality backlinks for your site . i think you have to start link building though forum posting by joining these forum and start discussion here and participate here that will helpfull in getting backlinks.
