Sneaky link development with Flickr
You probably know that Flickr can be an excellent resource for links as well as traffic. My previous method involved making a quick comment on flickr images that appear on the front page of Digg and generate up to 500 clicks. However just like on most website we can’t really go around plugging our link everywhere without getting banned. Or can we?
After doing a bit of backlink research yet another method has popped up. Have a look at glitter graphics and their 3 and a half million backlinks. Can you see how a lot of these come from flickr? Lets take a closer look at one of the pages. Can you see a little animation of two cats? Its an image link back to glitter graphics. However it is not too seo friendly. I took mine to the next level.
I used a little smily from this blog and added alt=”keyword” as well as title=”keyword” tags to my html code. You can see the final result here. The smily at the end of my quick comment looks natural and small enough not to attract unnecessary attention. Now I can go whitehat and leave quality comments on related pictures or alternatively adopt blackhat tactics and bombard every page possible.
