Exploiting Syndication for Major Backlinks

As some of you may know, I’m a big fan of building backlink exploits and my own blogs Technical SEO Section is dominated primarily by backlink exploitation. I’ve created and shared numerous backlink exploits, though I always still have tons of tricks up my sleeve.

This time, I’ll be exploiting syndication of large websites, to build backlinks. I’m going to build around this kind of from the very basic tactics upto the pretty hefty, bulky and detailed tactics that I’ve been using.

Tactic 1 – Social Syndication

Certain twitter accounts, websites etc.. will be syndicated via social syndication sites. A great example of this is http://docfu.com / http://tweetdeputy.com/ – If i go to http://docfu.com/to/godofseo.co or you can simply edit the /to/your-website-here.com it’ll display shares of that site’s documents from specific accounts that TweetDeputy/Docfu syndicates. All these links are dofollow and last as long as the site gets posted there.

Tier 2 link building anyone?

Tactic 2 – Using Traffic Networks

This is pretty much the easiest possible way, all you need is a 3rd party blog (e.g. a WordPress site or even just a domain you don’t use anymore) – Syndicate other peoples stuff, get “credits” and then drop your actual sites content all over the place! (

A nice thing about these traffic networks is a lot of the time you can pick and choose which sites to post to, making everything a lot more niche relevant and making sure you can spec out sites before posting to them.

Example Networks –




Tactic 3 – Comment Sniping!

This is actually a really weird method but it comes down to being able to post on an article within he first few minutes of it going live (Feedly offers an excellent way to do this). A lot of Syndicators will will use the RSS Feed to find new content then just rip the HTML of the content part of the page.

The cool thing about the “content” part is that a lot of blogs and specifically a lot of WP Themes will have the comments as part of the pull content part. This means if you can get a comment on there, a lot of the time any new syndications will index the comments as well. A great example of this is the Moz blog, it pulls in the comments as part of the same content, works like a charm!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and it’s opened your eyes to a few new techniques!
