Just so you can get a better understandingon how backlinks work, I'm going to go ahead and create one.
At this point in time it is very easy to geta PageRank 7 Do-Follow backlink from the Adobe website but I believe in future they willchange the link to a No-Follow or stop the Link-Juice from flowing to that page.
This is because they will probably realizethat people are creating fake accounts just to get a high PR backlink.
Now, keep in mind that this video is justan example, to maximize your SEO it is important that you create backlinks from websites thatare relevant to yours.
For example, if you have a website about cookingit is important that you obtain backlinks from other cooking websites.
Why? Because Google is getting smarter every singleday and they know that it doesn't make sense for a website about games to be linking toa website about cooking.
A few links is fine but if you have thousandsof these random backlinks, Google will detect that they have been created in an unnaturalway and may investigate into it.
On the screen right now you can see the accountI have created to get a Do-Follow backlink with the PageRank of 7.
And here is the actual backlink.
I am now going to show you how I did thisstep-by-step.
I went to the Adobe Education Exchange websiteand clicked on Join Now to create an account.
To fill in the form I used the form to filladd-on.
As we previously mentioned the add-on doesnot store passwords so I simply click here and then use AutoHotKey to quickly fill inthis form.
Also noted here that the email I am usingis peterbl@peterstavrou.
com This is a new email I created just to createbacklinks.
I always recommend that you create a new emailfor backlinks because as you sign up two different accounts you will begin to get a huge amountof emails that you are not interested in.
I now tick the box to say I have agreed totheir terms and click on the SIGN UP button.
I am now told that I need to verify my email.
I'm quickly going to pause the video, loginto my email and grab the link I need to verify.
Once I visit the link, I get a message sayingmy email has been verified.
I am now going click on Continue.
I'm now prompted with a message requestingme to complete my profile.
When you create an account to obtain a backlink, most of the time the backlink will be created within your profile.
This is the area where you fill in informationabout your profile.
I recommend that you take a few minutes andfill in as much information as you can and even add a picture just to make your profilelooked a bit more real.
A lot of websites have administrators whomonitor their sites and if they see accounts that look fake they will delete them.
So to avoid this from happening I spend anextra few minutes just to make it look real so the backlinks I create stick for a verylong time.
I'm now going to upload a photo and clickon the Bio box.
To fill this in quickly I'm going to use AutoHotKey.
I am now going to pause the video and fillin some information and then scroll to the bottom.
This field here is where you create your backlink.
I'm going to go ahead and enter my URL addressand then click on Update Settings.
If you ever get a message like this is becauseyou need to add the http:// to your URL address.
Here is my profile.
Here is the backlink I just created.
If I hover my mouse over it, you can see downhere that it links to my website.
If I turn on the No-Do Follow add-on, youcan see that it turns purple which means it is a Do-Follow backlink.
If I click on the icon here, it takes me tomy website.
And lastly, if I turn on the PageRank add-onyou can see that this page has a PageRank of 7, keep in mind that there are other waysto obtain backlinks other than creating accounts, posting on forums and commenting on blogsand I will be teaching some of these in a more Advanced SEO Training series but justtry to think outside the box and come up with different ways to obtain quality links toyour website.
