If you use (or are considering to use) auto-submitting programs to submit to article sites, blog comments, bookmarking sites and the like, here are few things to keep in mind before you do.
Using auto-submitting programs for backlinks can be a hassle in the long run. It may seem like a quick and easy way to get your link out there, but it's not always effective. You could end up with a lot of backlinks that are irrelevant to your niche, which won't help you rank higher in search engine results. Additionally, you may end up on directories that have nothing to do with your business or website, wasting time and effort.
Before we discuss the problem with using auto-submitting programs for backlinks, let's dive into backlinks a little bit further.
What is backlinking?
Backlinking is the process of creating links from one website to another. Backlinks are an important part of SEO (search engine optimization) because they help search engines understand how websites are related to each other. When a website has many backlinks, it is seen as being more authoritative and trustworthy, and therefore ranks higher in the SERP's (search engine results pages).
Why backlinking is important
Backlinking is important because it helps improve the visibility of your website in search engine results pages. When you have many high-quality backlinks, your website is more likely to rank higher in search results, which means more people will be able to find and visit your site. Backlinking is also important for building relationships with other websites and businesses.
What are the benefits of backlinking?
There are many benefits of backlinking, including:
– improved search engine rankings
– increased website traffic
– improved brand awareness
– improved website authority
How to do backlinking properly
There are a few different ways to create backlinks. The most common method is to simply add a link to your website on another website. This can be done by adding a link in the body of an article or blog post, or by adding a link in the comments section of a forum or blog. You can also add links to your website in your social media profiles (such as on Facebook or Twitter).
It's important to take the time to build quality backlinks manually. This will ensure that your links are relevant and helpful for both users and search engines. Doing so will also save you time in the long run as you won't have to spend hours sifting through irrelevant links or directories.
When building backlinks, it's important to consider the source of the link. A link from a reputable website or one that is related to your niche can be more beneficial than a low-quality auto-submitted link. Additionally, you want to make sure that the content surrounding your link is relevant and helpful for viewers. This will help create an engaging experience and build credibility for your business or website.
At the end of the day, auto-submitting programs can be useful in certain circumstances but should not be relied upon as a primary source of backlinks. Quality matters when it comes to links so take the time to manually build backlinks from reputable sources and ensure that they are relevant to your niche. Doing so will help you achieve higher search engine rankings and create a better experience for viewers.
Many companies advertise auto-submitting programs guaranteed to boost your backlinking juice. However, this approach is counterintuitive in the long run. What may look like immediate success will eventually be punished harshly by search engines, such as Google. Not only can auto-submitting not guarantee a ranking advantage, but sites that employ such techniques may find it even harder to remain visible on search results overnight. To ensure lasting success, take the necessary time and effort to do backlinking right according to the rules and best practices set by search engines.
Why auto-submitting programs for backlinks can be harmful
While surfing blogs to leave our comments on for valuable backlinks, we came across a site called SEO Chat. In 2010 the domain was http://www.seochat.com, but now it redirects to https://www.webmasterworld.com/.
On that site, we found a comment that just had to be made an example of to show you what you need to be aware of if you are using any sort of auto-posting system.
Case in Point: Notice the image below.
So, what went wrong?
There are so many things wrong with this, not even sure where to begin, but for starters the html doesn't appear correctly.
This poor fellow (or gal) submitted typical html into a site that only accepts [shortcode]. ie.
[url=https://www.YourSite.com/][i]Your Sites Homepage[/url][/i]
This will happen because they either submitted via auto-submit or just didn't read the instructions. But why should they have read the instructions anyway?
Chances are they didn't read the instructions because they didn't even read the article! A backlink is not just a backlink and be careful where and how you look. This can make you look real silly.
Also note that they are posting in a "Plant Food" category and they are carpentry and home improvement. I can see the similarities much less clearly as I can see it's spam. If I can see that… trust me, I believe Google has an algorithm for that, if not now… soon. Be aware, thatby using these auto-submitting programs you can get yourself in places you don't want to be. Even worse, making you look like a spammer for doing it.
And once you realize all these errors… who is going to go back, log into all these sites individually and delete or edit them?
Nothing replaces the human touch and doing backlinking the correct way! Happy blog commenting and see you at the Top of Google!
