Are links your nemisis rather than a powerful tool?
In last week's post I talk about 4 alternative uses of social media. Point #2 I mentioned in that piece talked about "generating direct backlinks", though I wasn't able to elaborate as much as I would have liked to.
Obviously there are many ways to get links from social media. One such technique is to establish profiles on various social media, and link from your profile on those sites, back to your web site. The key obviously is in knowing which social media sites permit links, and which permit DoFollow links.
I intend to keep updating this list over time so bookmark it now. Also, if you're aware of any such social media site, please leave a comment and let us know. We'll add it to the comprehensive list, and will link back to each person's site doing so.
