Backlink Indexation
Backlink Indexation

 10:21 am on Jun 21, 2010 (gmt 0)


Glad to have joined the forum.

I urgently need some research in the area of backlink indexation which is quickly becoming my Achilles Heel in terms of SEO knowledge.

I have researched all my normal places and cant find anything. Even on SEOmoz which seems to be a Pandora's Box.

My issue is building backlinks then experiencing an endless wait for them to be indexed (if at all in regards to average quality directories etc.).

I believe that there are a number of techniques that I would consider grey hat such as creating RSS feeds which include URL's of pages with your backlinks on then submitting to RSS Directories which I believe are effective in increasing backlink indexation. Similarly bookmarking backlinks could be seen as spammy too.

Based on my knowledge the only white hat technique is to sit on your hands and wait for the backlinks to appear, but need a second option. I am also slightly concerned about increasing indexation then becoming sandboxed as a result of getting a large number of links indexed at the same time.

Would be great to hear other peoples thoughts and to confirm my theories. Would love any links to authority sources on the subject as I have tried and failed finding any info on this.

Hi Steve

I've recently started doing content exchanges with other webmaster where I will submit article with my links embedded within the article - this is something you may want to consider - although finding webmasters you can "trust" does take some hunting

Thanks for the advice.

My question is to clarify techniques to encourage backlink indexation by search engines - I think pinging is probably the answer but I am concerned about trying to do anything that could be seen as grey hat as the site is very high value.

My understanding white hat would dictate do nothing. I would love to hear how others get their backlinks indexed.

Any help would be excellent.

I am specifically asking about the 210 links I have built but google only showing approx. 10 atm.

If the backlink comes from an article or something semi-reputable, Tweet it.

DON'T Tweet directory subs, unless it's something like an official body that you have become a member of.

Google only shows whatever backlinks it wants to show, with no real rhyme or reason. It doesn't mean that Google doesn't know about them (it very well might), it just doesn't want to show them to you.

Yahoo, I believe, shows all that it knows about.

Jimbeetle is correct. Google only shows a sample of backlinks and has been doing so for a long time [webmasterworld.com]. And to confuse matters, the backlinks it shows do not necessarily represent links it is counting for ranking purposes.

Yep.. As JimBeetle and MartiniBuster have stated... the output from the link: operator AND the inbound links displayed inside of your Google Webmaster Tools account are both "samples" of your inbound links.

Google will also display in both the link: operator output and Google WMT links that are NOFOLLOW as well as links from URLs known to be under penalty... and in both cases, those links would not count toward your rankings.

Google doesn't want you to know which links they do/do not know about. They don't want you to know which links they are/are not counting... Because they don't want to give you the ability to reverse engineer the backlink related ranking factors for their algorithm. So they "confuse" people with their "samples".

There is nothing wrong with building links. If you're worried about getting sandboxed then to set your own mind at ease, build them manually avoiding automated submissions. That way your link building rate will look natural and should not trigger any red flags at Google related to the rate at which your site acquires links, if such flags even exist.

Great to know impotent information, also include some stress on video and other things...according to caffiene video is essential.

this is especially good if you are getting a link that includes new content - clip it in your amplify com account.

I sent an email to my list today with the title
"google buys california" then aweber makes the email into a page, I hit it with amplify then searched the title right away, it was #1 that fast.

If I add some content with my link to someones site then hit it in amplify, to me that is totally white hat. I am nicely promoting their link and mine.

I also find that every time I clip anything I also get a new backlink to the site I have listed in my profile.

It can send a shortened url of the clip to Twitter, Facebook, Ping.fm, and others.

You might want to check it out.

I agree much with semseoanalyst video is essential 14.7 Billion videos viewed at Youtube in May.

Ping sites like pingler com can be used too in my opinion there is nothing wrong with doing that.

The best way to get backlinks that are indexed fast is to choose websites that are authority :)
