Great Video Shane and a great product,
Just wanted to ask if you heard about Ping.fm and using it in combination with the WordPress plugin called Shorten2Ping.
Ping.fm has 38 services you can sign up and create accounts with and with the use of the Shorten2ping plugin every new post you make on your blog will go out to your Ping.fm account and will post to all those services.
I think it could be a great addition to the free web 2.0 linking tools you are giving in your product unless I am missing something.
August 4th, 2010 at 6:50 am
I’ve tinkered with ping.fm before, but I didn’t know about that plugin. Thanks for the tip! I’ll take a look at it right away and it might make a great addition to the Backlink Battleplan!
August 4th, 2010 at 8:01 am
I think it could be a great addition to your Web 2.0 module of the course.
The only problem is that adding all of those supported services can take a while but guess what, I managed to find a solution to that also.
I found a guy that will create accounts for you for a very good price in my opinion. You can find him here:
This is not an affiliate link and I will not make 1 cent from this. You can get 3 Ping.FM accounts for $27. He won’t accept orders for less that 3 accounts.
The service is great, He will create the accounts in 2 days and will provide you with all the details. If you can afford it, it is a real time saver.
Hope this helps.
August 4th, 2010 at 7:01 am
Some great info Shane.
One thing I was wondering about is how to manage duplicate postings.
For example, if you set up Feedburner, Posterous and various other sites/tools to auto-post, then how do you keep track of all the duplicate posts that are going to happen, or do you just not worry about it?
August 4th, 2010 at 7:12 am
In the case of this method, you can’t avoid duplicate content. I don’t worry about that at all. I’ve never had a problem with duplicate content, even submitting it in large volumes. So getting half a dozen identical posts doesn’t bother me in the least.
August 6th, 2010 at 6:34 pm
Isn’t the backlink the only objective? You dont want the content to rank and potentially compete with your site. We just want the link. right?
August 6th, 2010 at 6:46 pm
Well, it doesn’t hurt if the content ranks. It’s great if your content occupies more than one spot on the first page.
But generally, no content is as valuable as that on your own website, so yes: The objective is to rank your own website and getting your other properties to rank is either a pleasant side-effect or a distant second priority.
August 4th, 2010 at 7:19 am
Wow, good one DB. I use ping.fm but like Shane I didn’t know about the plug in. Will check it out rightaway! Another awesome tool Shane!
August 4th, 2010 at 7:41 am
cool that’s pretty simple, THX
August 4th, 2010 at 7:53 am
Very Very Cool Stuff!!!!
Thank you, the video is laid out very nicely and super easy to understand
I am starting the 2.0 backlinks right NOW!!!
Thank you for your help and I can not wait to see the next video
August 4th, 2010 at 8:04 am
You mentioned something about a bonus video that will cover using paid tools to get your backlinking into higher gear, any idea when that will be available ?
August 4th, 2010 at 8:06 am
That’s inside the Backlink Battleplan member’s area, once it opens up.
But tell you what: I’ll add something to this blog as well, after the next couple videos. Maybe make an extra video, even. I’ll see what I can come up with.
August 4th, 2010 at 8:10 am
Found it… Sorry.
What software are you using to create your videos ?
August 4th, 2010 at 8:22 am
A while ago I posted at the the warrior forum asking how email posting is done, and this video answered also my questions even more. I have several Posterous, Blogger, Multiply, Vox, etc accounts but never took advantage of this method nor have I ever used their email posting utility, now Shane you have opened my eyes.
August 4th, 2010 at 8:36 am
Excellent! Even better when you already have the accounts. Now, setup will be a breeze for you!
August 4th, 2010 at 8:53 am
Thank you for the video 2. I had used Socialmarker, wich I think is similar to posterous, but the results were not always as expected. I believe your method is better! Thank you again!
August 4th, 2010 at 10:07 am
More great stuff today, you are certainly delivering some great content here
Unlike some of your other contributors I had not come across you prior to this but I’m glad I have now
I have touched on this on my blog,I presume there be an affiliate opportunity on your paid program because if it’s adding even more value than your free content I will want to tell people about it?
August 4th, 2010 at 1:02 pm
Dear Shane, thanks for your help and allowing me to download your videos, i will study it, I hope i will know how to used it for i am not an expert in computer but am surfing to have an apportunity here. Please will you teach me how to make a website, iam an ignorance maybe you will laugh at me or others that read this.
August 4th, 2010 at 1:17 pm
There’s a guide to bulding your first website inside the final Backlink Battleplan product. I’ll also see if I can include a guide for you in the next post.
August 4th, 2010 at 1:33 pm
Wow! What a great video.
I was skeptical at first, but now you have my complete attention. Can’t wait till your next video.
I do have a question.
I link to many of the sites you mention using Ping.FM. If I then connect to the sites through Posterous & Vox am I not going to create a loopback factor that will cause me great grief in the long run and perhaps get my sites banned? Should I disconnect these accounts from Ping.FM before setting up your system?
Thanks again. Great advice.
August 4th, 2010 at 1:47 pm
Thanks for your comment!
If you have a solid ping.fm syndication system set up, then keep using that. I tried many methods and ping.fm works, but is not as quick or as easy as this e-mail method.
If you want to use both, I recommend using a separate set of accounts for each, or making sure that no automations overlap, otherwise that could really cause some problems…
August 4th, 2010 at 2:03 pm
I wonder if it would help for others to know this too, before they venture forth with the excellent plan you have established.
I think setting up new accounts is a pain, but perhaps the better of the two options.
Just be sure to remember all passwords and update them often… LOL
August 4th, 2010 at 2:09 pm
We’ve got a solution for that problem inside the Backlink Battleplan.
Although the best “lazy” solution is just to outsource the account creation (I agree that it’s the most annoying part of the process).
August 4th, 2010 at 2:08 pm
For the record, what I like about your system is the inclusion of the keyword in your link. This is something that Ping.FM does not make available to my knowledge. That makes your system 100% better and 100% easier than theirs.
August 4th, 2010 at 2:01 pm
Can I use the title tag within my HREF tag with this method?
title=”enter keyword here”
It would go at the end of the HREF open tag.
August 4th, 2010 at 2:13 pm
Have never tried that. I don’t doubt that posterous can handle it correctly, but you’d have to test it on Vox. It’s more finnicky (you can send pretty much anything to posterous and they’ll format it properly).
August 4th, 2010 at 2:43 pm
It boosts power of backlinks very nicely.
Here’s an example.
Your site is Backlink Battle Plan and you decide to write an article about that.
WARNING: Very bad coding ahead
So you write your A HREF tag…
Add the page title.
Then you add your title attribute
ttp:/BacklinkBattlePlan.com/BacklinkBattlePlanDefined.html title=”Backlink Battle Plan”
Wrap your A HREF code
ttp:/BacklinkBattlePlan.com/BacklinkBattlePlanDefined.html title=”Backlink Battle Plan”>Backlink Battle Plan</A
Perhaps even bold it and add italics… and your done. What you have created is a link that gives you 4 credits for the price of one. Nice!
This works for internal to site projects as well as backlinks.
August 4th, 2010 at 2:55 pm
I do that for my (WP) blog posts, but it never occurred to me to do it on the Web2.0 sites as well… I’ll test it out and add it to the report, if it works on all the sites.
August 4th, 2010 at 3:10 pm
I don’t know if it will work on all sites, but as long as it doesn’t break the code for the sites it doesn’t work on all should be good.
Please let me know if you decide to use this little tip and I wouldn’t mind a mention of ResourcePoint.net if you do.
August 4th, 2010 at 3:11 pm
August 4th, 2010 at 2:12 pm
I have been using the ping.fm link system for awhile now and it does work well. Using that in conjunction with the plan you laid out here I am sure it will be a huge success! Many thanks
August 4th, 2010 at 2:29 pm
Fantastic video, clear and right to the point.
I will test it soon and give you feedback on my findings.
Once again thanks for sharing
August 4th, 2010 at 2:32 pm
Awesome! Would love to hear about your results.
August 4th, 2010 at 3:26 pm
What a great idea.
I’m battling to build backlinks, so I am certainly going to try this.
Looking forward to the next part of your launch.
August 4th, 2010 at 3:31 pm
Thank you very much for this awsome tip. As always you never fail to deliver something with value and simplicity. I am a learner in this sphare and most of the time I get lost in technical Jagon. Somehow you seem to make it easy even for a new guy like myself to pick up.
August 4th, 2010 at 5:24 pm
I am currently using 4 methods for getting back links , your idea is really fantastic . If you don’t mind I would like to let any body else reading this to find out how to fully automate a back link strategy . if you’re interested drop me an email
August 4th, 2010 at 7:45 pm
Thanks Shane. I will definitely do this battle plan and see what it does to my blog.
August 4th, 2010 at 8:08 pm
When I clicked on your video my browser alerted me that a plugin was trying to install. I do not know why you need to have a special plugin to display videos. This is suspicious behavior and I do not want or intend to install another plugin etc to watch yours or anyone else’s videos
Use a standard video codec that we all already use ie in firefox.
Why on earth or you trying to do this. I am concerned this is going to phone home with more info than I have agreed to share. No Thanks.
August 4th, 2010 at 8:28 pm
The videos play in flash (like youtube) as well as HTML5, so I’m actually surprised you managed to find a way for the videos not to play. ^^ (if you have a smartphone, try accessing the site with that. Videos should play without an issue on those, too)
What was the plugin that was trying to install?
August 4th, 2010 at 8:14 pm
Very interesting. Will try it out and see what results I get.
August 4th, 2010 at 10:30 pm
Posterous has been around for a while, no idea why I ve never really heard about it by internet marketers…
I write the blog post in the posterous blog directly, then syndicate it to all those other blogs. Posterous works great.
PING.fm will send to more properties, but it s not easy to use. i tried sending with email to Ping.fm but never got that to work…
August 4th, 2010 at 11:04 pm
Shane, thanks for the information. I’m a real newbie regarding black-links and all. My site is up and running, but I have not added a blog yet. My question is, do I have to have a blog on my site for any of this to work or at least be effective? Thanks again.
August 4th, 2010 at 11:21 pm
Good question. Google definitely prefers sites that have a lot of related content on them. In other words, it’s difficult to rank a 1-page site or a site with just a few pages.
Blogs are a great solution for this, as their a good way to add fresh content to your site.
This is not to say that it’s impossible to rank single pages or that every site needs to be HUGE. It just makes things easier if you have some more related content (and interlinking between your pages) going on.
August 5th, 2010 at 6:07 pm
Great info, this is what I needed. I have done some ping.fm submissions but I think that I have missed the detailed plan about how to execute everything. This is simple enough to be done for all new content.
Posterous is great as I have seen some really good and fast backlinks from them.
August 5th, 2010 at 6:58 pm
Great stuff Shane, backlinking gives me the heebiejeebies, but this pretty simple.
August 5th, 2010 at 9:37 pm
After watching your videos, I went to Posterous and set up everything according to your very clear instructions. Everything went smoothly except for two things:
1. The post didn’t show up on Vox
2. Multiply was unable to login to my blogger account
I went to each post today because I wanted to add tags. I had forgotten how to do it when posting to posterous via email. Here’s their directions on how to add tags in case anyone else likes to “tag” their Posts:
Add tags simply in the subject of your email using the syntax ((tag: apple, gadgets)). This works in the bookmarklet too. You can see your tags on the homepage of your site and click on them to see those posts.
Thank you for these videos. I can’t wait to see what the next one will teach us! Renee
August 5th, 2010 at 10:40 pm
Great series! I had been working my butt off using some other SEO plans but I never realized how simple it could be. You do a fantastic job of making everything understandable and easy to use.
August 6th, 2010 at 12:10 am
Thank you for all the great feedback and kind comments, so far!
August 6th, 2010 at 12:29 am
Thank you for the good info Shane.
This is similar to bookmarking method using socialmaker but has to be more convenient.
Also, I wanted to download your videos for the reference while working on these methods
but was not able to do it. Can you make it down-loadable?
August 6th, 2010 at 4:46 am
This looks like a great way to automate back links. I also downloaded your article submitter as I constantly write new articles. Looking forward to more of your videos. Thanks for the info.
August 6th, 2010 at 6:26 am
Thanks so much for this video! I dabbled with Posterous, but didn’t fully ‘grok’ how it works. One of the problems I’ve had with ping.fm is that I end up with posts – but NO TITLE gets passed on to the blog sites. So I’ve had to revisit so many sites and manually ADD one to make the resulting post complete. WIth Posterous passing the Subject: = Post Title — AND the ability to anchor keywords – it’s a far more powerful.
FYI: Vox is surprisingly powerful for backlinks – so it’s very much worth setting up an account there and including your @moblog.vox.com address _before_ sending the email.
August 6th, 2010 at 9:46 am
Shane, great video and as always super useful information.
I have been told that http://pixelpipe.com/ is a good substitute for posterous. Have you tried it?
August 6th, 2010 at 9:51 am
Wow, that looks very interesting! Thanks for the tip!
I’ll check it out and include it in the battleplan if it’s as useful as it looks, at first glance!
August 6th, 2010 at 1:16 pm
Thanks again for great content – and for making the material so easy to follow and understand. Looking forward to what is yet to come.
August 6th, 2010 at 3:29 pm
Another great video Shane. Thanks but I do have one unrelated question concerning AS Helper. The instructions on how to add directories to the program is very confusing to me. Do you think you could produce a video on how to do that?
Have to go now so I can set up my Posterous account.
August 6th, 2010 at 3:39 pm
I’ve already made a video with instructions about that. You can find it here.
August 9th, 2010 at 8:17 pm
Just to clarify. I understand how to install the directory into AS Helper. What I am asking is how to you set up individual article sites within the program? ie custom directories-add new.
The drop down list that you have to fill in is very confusing as to what fields are required.
Hope you can help.
August 9th, 2010 at 10:35 pm
I’m no expert at that either, to be honest.
I’ll have to get in touch with the creator of ASH to see if he can help out with some more custom directories.
August 6th, 2010 at 7:00 pm
A bundle of thanks shane
August 6th, 2010 at 7:08 pm
Hi shane- Is posterous sometimes backed up? I made a couple of posts today and they have yet to show up there. Wonder if they get delayed sometimes? was also wondering if these 2.0 properties ever ban people for spam like activity. Not that this is, but I’ve got few sites and plan on linking all of my posts. Should it be done slow or does it not matter? thanks!
August 6th, 2010 at 7:27 pm
Usually posterous are very quick. But it’s not impossible for delays to happen. Could be a mail deliverability issue as well…
Yes, some sites will ban your accounts for spammy activity. Although that will mainly happen if you post massive amounts of non-content (scraped content, masses of links to questionable sites etc.) or try to plaster everything with affiliate links.
I don’t know if the speed at which you submit new content will be an issue, though. I’d personally avoid doing dozens and dozens of posts in a single day, just to be safe.
August 8th, 2010 at 12:02 pm
You have some great stuff and I will get stuck into using this along with AShelper and give my site a lift.
August 8th, 2010 at 12:09 pm
Loving this information!
Slightly off topic, but there are two great sites for public domain photos you can use if you want images for your posts. Pretty much everything on both sites are fine to use, but check the details before posting. All images are able to be used commercially!
The first one requires photographer recognition http://publicdomainpictures.net/
The second is much bigger. Some photographers require notification. http://www.sxc.hu/

I was very much wanting to be part of your weekend festivities this weekend and then realized that I left your Email at my office. If there is a way to be included in the prizes and such this weekend that you talked about in your Email I would appreciate the opportunity.
Please add my Calculate Power information to your Email list. Thanks.
August 8th, 2010 at 4:39 pm
Thank you so much for your clear and concise instructions, Shane! It’s amazing that you are letting us in on these terrific free back linking methods.
Here’s a free tip from me: If your money site is on a WordPress platform, a great free plugin to increase internal linking structure is SEO Smart Links. Just load your predefined keywords, and it will automatically link to all other posts on your blog that mention that keyword.
As well, you can also link your keywords to another URL, perhaps a squeeze page if you so desire.
August 8th, 2010 at 4:47 pm
Hi! Great tip with the WP Plugin! For interlinking, that can definitely be very helpful.
August 8th, 2010 at 6:22 pm
This is anoother Gem, ou provide so much information, simple in its execution but very effective for the end results.
keep it coming please !
August 8th, 2010 at 11:13 pm
Simply Brilliant !
I must admit this beats the pants off Ping.fm –
Ping.fm has some great features but never seems to work
Only today I was discussing this with a fellow markketer and looks like yo guys have come up with a brilliant solution.
August 9th, 2010 at 10:32 pm
Yeah, ping.fm is promising, but I find it a bit clumsy to use and as you say: It often doesn’t work properly.
Just sending one e-mail definitely beats it.
August 9th, 2010 at 1:05 pm
I’m a writer, not an IT person. Although I computerized very, very early–when PCs were embryonic–I basically resent having to do this internet stuff, and have avoided it for years. My feeling has always been: PCs=good (because they enable one to write so much more), Internet marketing=bad (because it really isn’t what a writer wants to do). However, now that I’ve decided that the changes in publishing are such that I must do it, I don’t think I could have happened upon an easier or more complete explanation of what I need to do. While I can’t say I’m looking forward to learning all this, I can say I don’t really think it would be possible for me without Shane’s tutorials and products.
August 10th, 2010 at 8:00 pm
I know the Battleplan already launched, but I had a question regarding this vid that I hope you will clear up for me. Do I need to create a new account for each niche site that I have using this method to get backlinks? In other words, if I have a site for dog shampoo, another site for futons, and another for video games – do I need to set up 3 separate accounts on blogger, livejournal, etc when I use this method or is one account all I need? I’m guessing its one for each niche but I would truly appreciate your response. BTW, I am truly glad I stumbled upon your site. Excellent content and product. I am looking forward to working the methods you’ve laid out as I believe they are exactly what I need to move forward in my IM efforts.
August 10th, 2010 at 8:47 pm
I recommend that you do create separate accounts, but it’s not mandatory. For the search engines, it doesn’t matter. But since you’ll generally get some human visitors to those blogging sites, it can make sense to keep them separated by topic.
If you just want to use them as “link-feeders”, then you don’t need to bother with separate accounts, though.
August 10th, 2010 at 8:11 pm
You have just given me a veritable plethora of ideasusing these Web 2.0 strategies. Since I’ve already got a marketing blog, these techniques of yours will fit into the scheme very nicely. Are you sure you’re not giving away the farm here?
August 10th, 2010 at 8:48 pm
Thanks for your comment, Hale.
I think you’re underestimating the size of the farm.
August 11th, 2010 at 11:54 am
Another great and very useful Video. Thank you
August 23rd, 2010 at 6:46 am
Some 2 weeks ago I was also reading these comments and wondering where is the catch.
Surprise no catch.
All I can say is that if you think this is A class, take the course.
Most definitely the best money EVER spent. And here is the amazing thing, If you are fairly new to the game, like myself, it is very empowering because it opens your eyes to all the possibilities and you have control in your hands and can apply this knowledge and techniques to any Internet project you wish to take on.
Thanks Meneer Shane
August 23rd, 2010 at 7:22 am
Thanks for such generous feedback! I’m glad you like the course!
August 24th, 2010 at 4:06 am
Can pinging my blog post help in addition to the backlink building?
August 24th, 2010 at 6:01 am
Pinging can only help in terms of getting search engine bots to visit your site and crawl the content. You won’t be able to increase your ranking by pinging.
August 25th, 2010 at 5:05 am
What is the immediate benefit of having search engines bots visit a website and crawl the content?
August 25th, 2010 at 7:13 am
If it’s your own site, the benefit is simply that new pages are added to the index and any updates you made to a page (better optimization, for example) are “noticed” by the search engine.
For external pages/sites that have your backlinks on them, the benefit is that those pages get discovered and the link gets counted. Unless Google discovers the pages with your links on them, you might as well not have built those links. Although there are better ways to get pages like that noticed and indexed.
August 28th, 2010 at 9:46 pm
Would Pinging get content indexed and links noticed quicker by search engines?
August 31st, 2010 at 11:30 pm
Clever, simple and effective,
Thank you for sharing
September 1st, 2010 at 4:47 pm
Who woulda guessed? I really like this method of email for backlinks. That backlink Battleplan must be jammed packed with lots of goodies. I’m looking forward to it.
September 5th, 2010 at 1:41 pm
I was wondering, I have two separate niches, do I need to set up two separate accounts with separate e-mails and do the linking thing twice?
Or do I just post everything for both niches to the one e-mail address?
Thanks for everything,
September 6th, 2010 at 1:25 am
this material is awesome and I have set it up for one of my sites and then setting it up for the next site now. Really really great stuff.
Just as a little sidenote, if you are setting up a bunch of links so that people can sign up, you really want the links to “open in a new window”. Otherwise you lose to PDF every time you click the link.
I am already getting back links from setting up the article submission portion of this plan!
September 6th, 2010 at 10:53 pm
Great content Shane
I was wondering if someone has never worked with web 2 sites before and doesn’t have a blogger blog but only a wordpress blog will Vox accept my blog?
September 13th, 2010 at 2:19 am
I tried to sign up with Vox but was told that they are closing their doors on 9/30/10
Are they moving or changing their name?
September 13th, 2010 at 7:21 am
Yes, unfortunately, Vox are closing completely, so we’ll have to do without them, for this technique…
September 15th, 2010 at 3:48 am
Shane, just to make sure how my post read can you tell me how to see my post on these sites?
September 15th, 2010 at 7:17 am
Yes, simply go to the sites manually and look at the posts.
September 22nd, 2010 at 11:54 pm
Shane you informed us in the video for ashelper to replace the current drectories with the one you provide to us in the XML file. You said to go to the installation field and click exe. then replace it with your new file to get the 19 directories. But I am having trouble finding the installation file for Ahelper. any advice?
September 23rd, 2010 at 7:31 am
Please take a look at this instructions video, which shows the installation process in more detail. Hope that helps.
September 22nd, 2010 at 11:55 pm
Also everytime I post tp posterous I get two post on my own blog for the same post any way to stop having my post duplicate itself?
Which blog is getting duplicate posts? Posterous or one of the others?
September 22nd, 2010 at 11:57 pm
Ps did I tell you that you are a great teacher? this is easier learning from you than from anyone else I have studied. I had no idea what backlinks were until I met you.
Thanks again and forgive me if I ask a dumb question.
October 3rd, 2010 at 9:44 pm
Excellent information, I have spent half a day implementing this plan of action. Some of the blogs dont seem to be pulling the data through, such as the wordpress blog and multiply.
However my question was where the blogs put the posts in as a shortened link pointing back to the posterous post, does the back link still count from these sites?
October 12th, 2010 at 4:06 pm
Found your site yesterday. These videos are very good and easy tounderstand, many thanks.
