21 Places To Post Content With DoFollow Links

update: I should have seen this a mile away, but the comments section of this post is NOT one of the good places to post your links. Please stop trying – they get nofollowed anyway.

Caution: This post is somewhat grey-hat SEO.

Linkbuilding in SEO has gotten harder and harder. It used to be that everybody had a links page and was more than happy to trade. Then directories came about, then social media.

Those days are over. Nobody has a links page anymore, directories are pretty useless, and most social media sites have gone to digg style bars or started using the rel=nofollow tag.

So where does a shady SEO practictioner go to get links to his site? Blogs and other content hosting sites!

Here’s a list of 21 places you can post your own content complete with links that do not receive a nofollow tag. Many of these places are content hosting sites, so you’d be best to write some unique content for each. A few are profile sites that let you list URLs.

Of course, after this post that may change, so your mileage my vary. Good luck:

Identity.net
WordPress
Weebly
Voovi
Blogspot
Multiply
Squidoo
Blog.com
Blogr
Ning
LiveJournal
Quizilla
Beklo
Blogs.ie
Tumblr
Insane Journal
Blogsome
Sampa
Terapad
MTV
edublogs

* disclosure: I used to work for Identity.net. I’m not saying spam them, but if you have a site, by all means go create a profile there about yourself and list your site in it as a URL.

There you go. Create 21 unique blog posts are articles with links and start spamming away.

  1. hmmm…
    thanks for the info..

  2. You see, this is what’s killing the internet.

    SEO spamming is basically a knotweed choking the life out of what was once a useful, entertaining, challenging place.

    There’s no difference between this kind of content-generation and the old link farms of old – neither contributes anything to the internet, or human knowledge, or personal expression, and makes it harder to find a sincere voice out there.

    I’ll be glad when we run out of IP addresses and can turn the fucking internet off.
