Student Link Builder

Hey, basically I have recently been given a job link building for a company in london, although from what I have read it is clearly not the kind of link building that is talked about frequently in the forum, I am getting paid 1 per link basically to scour forums and blogs to drop there link, its not fun as you are probably already aware and it certainly is mind numbingly boring and with a quota of 100 a week its fast becoming a hated job.

Anyway I am basically looking for advice, guidance, anything in regards too ways i could streamline the process of Google searching for example Fashion forums and then going through pages and pages to find a forum that will let my post html links, then I have to register which takes a lot of time in itself, post the thing without looking blatent (ie like a salesman), then check back on the link in a few days if it is being moderated. Then I have the problem of a lot of forums parsing links.

Is there any programs out there for example that would let me enter all my registration info and then almost paste the whole thing to save me repetative registration time? Or am I doomed to my current procedure?

Any help would greatfully accepted. Ben

For filling registration and directory submission forms, Roboform can be a god send. I use a Mac alternative called 1Passwd which is good, although Roboform's functionality is better.

If you're getting 1 a link and 100 links a week, how are you able to survive? If you have the basic link building skills, jobs start from 16k-18k at agencies in London (a lot more once you've got a good rep for it).

Hah props for that evilgreen, I'm sorry I might of not been clear in my first post, I am actually from liverpool the company itself is in london and sells Leather bags, briefcases, suitcases, handbags, rucksacks ect they are really expensive though so its hard to keep the topic relevant when someones talking about a 15 bag when I am trying to advertise a 300 bag.

I shall take a look at that roboform thanks I was close to topping myself before when for the 5th time today I registered for a site that wont allow links.

I am waiting to go to uni so 1 a link isnt too bad although its starting to feel like a full time job, I am the human spam bot at the moment except one who is not allowed to copy and paste things I have said before. Also he only allows blogs/forum posts that are indexed on google (I assume he is boosting his pr).

Also I must note he is not paying me to go to other websites and ask them to link me, so basically I am reliant on searching google for terms such as "recommend a suitcase" or "fashion forums" and then further searching for briefcases bags ect.

Thats a pretty cool utility, however I am only a lackey so I have not control over the site and hence reciprocal linking itself - however that keyword tool helped me sooo much (thanks very much), I have been reading up more around the subject of link building and after reviewing the site I noticed it has good linkbaiting potential for instance a number of articles of the history of leather bags / style tips ect - however where would I go about posting these?

also is it worth litrally going to all the link directories and getting the link out that way?

Regards Ben

All of your ideas are good ones! It's best to use a number of different linking tactics, the wider you cast your net the more links you'll get.

Typically "linkbaiting" tactics use more controversial/funny subject matter rather than "history of" or "how to". If you go with the "how to clean leather" type articles look for sites like WikiHow or About.com to submit to.

If you want the general article directories, search on the term 'article directory/ies" and you'll find what you want.

You have competitors right? Backlink their sites and research their brand names and see where they've advertised/blogged/baited/been linked from. Use the Yahoo tool to get started:

Sign up to google alerts for phrases you are interested in, get an RSS for a few keyterms in your reader from google blogsearch and then you'll see new places to post your comments.

http://blogsearch.google.com/ - notice the rss for the results.

Don't forget that many blogs and forums don't allow links at first but then after a number of posts; so it may be worthwhile posting a few relevant items. To build legitimacy you might consider linking to other news items and blog posts too, (which you'll be getting to know via your RSS feeds).

If your employer needs the post to be indexed by google then help the site you are commenting on out and create a further blog of your own on wordpress or blogspot (or both) and reference the thread or original posting so it may get indexed.

You could also make your own RSS feed, set it up via "feedburner" and then send it out via "ping-o-matic". That is about 50 links in ten minutes!
