If you’re reading this months Hobo linkbuilding tips, you’ll see that I laid down a strategy for getting good backlinks. I thought it was worth a post specifically on finding suspended accounts with Google. I really don’t want to cause other sites trouble, so most of my tips you’ve got to use your brain a bit.
Here’s an example:
Basically, you find suspended accounts using Google which are related to your site, find out who links to them, and contact the linking sites informing them they link to a dead /suspended account, and ask them to link to yours instead.
Example – here’s the first one that popped into my head: Toys & ” “suspended account” – bingo – number 1 listing is a site with about 35 links (see here http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=toys+”account+suspended”) from other sites using
yahoo site explorer. Repeat ad nauseum till you find decent link opportunities – it’s not just “suspended accounts” you look for either ;)
Using this strategy you’re cleaning up the web, getting backlinks and helping webmasters remove deadlinks on their site. OK, so you’re screwing the suspended website a little, but it’s suspended for a reason, and has been that way for some time or Google wouldn’t have it in it’s index.
This works especially well for How-To Content and Tutorials etc and helps you build the trust and authority of your site.
It’s a dog eat dog world out there lol
