Backlink Generator

I was drafting on a new article but I missed a word to describe something specific. Let me coin the term “Backlink Generator”. EDIT: Article now written here.

With “Backlink Generator” I mean a “machine” that generates backlinks passively. It is a tool, script or something else which makes people link to it without any effort from your part.

What is the difference between a Link Bait and a Backlink Generator?

With Link Bait people link to you because of the content. With a Backlink Generator people link to you because it is forced or made like that.

4 examples of good Backlink Generators

There are many more Backlink Generators that can be created, those are just from the top of my head and what I deem the most effective ones.

An SEO contest is a good Link Bait if executed well. If you then also force the contestants to link to you it also becomes a good Backlink Generator and even a better Link Bait due to the controversy …

It is very easy for a Backlink Generator to get a lot of links and good PR. I manage myself 5 and they are all PR 5-6 and each day they get about 2 new good backlinks, passively.

Use your Backlink Generators to link to your content sites!

    Mr. Jim, thank you for putting this nice piece of really useful information for us to read. The point you mention is quite true, nowadays, bright ideas will bring great traffic to websites rather easily.

    Especilly when there are so many inexpensive and in some cases free scripts to use on websites that people are always looking for them on the web.

    Good points, Jim. The suggestion about tools that web site owners can place on their own site is great, but it’s getting harder and harder to accomplish, since everybody seems to be doing this these days.

    I guess the trick is to find a very specific niche with not so much “tool competition”.
