Sure – you’re probably like me and make a genuine effort to regularly get good backlinks pointing at your websites, but when was the last time you sent out a press release?

PRESS RELEASES

Ahhhh… I knew it! Same here – not as often as we should!

While we know that LINKS to our site in general are still important and effective to seperate ourselves from the competition, it is also advantageous to have a good diversity of links coming in to our sites.

Press Releases, whether paid or free, can offer some great high quality links PLUS also offer the advantage of real traffic.

I’m not here to promote any particular service or software, but just thought I’d share this nugget with you as I just finished writing a press release for my new ecom store.

While it can be worthwhile to pay for a press release to be distributed, it is also effective to use free press release submission services and/or software.

The one I use is software I bought a few years ago. Yes it still works but is no longer available.

You can however search google and find truly free distribution services. Be careful – a lot of them say free and it turns out they offer free registration and actually charge money to distribute the release. I know – that is shady.

One site that is actually free as of this writing is www.pr.comĀ 

They also offer upgrades for deeper distribution but to be onest a good press release published on a domain that is indexed by Google is good enough.

Give it a try.

Oh and if you want to do a little more research on press releases a good article on both free and paid services is at this link.

Don’t you just hate it when the links in your blog posts become broken?

If you are like me and you have more than a few blogs, or in my case, hundreds of blogs, you can appreciate that there is a tool to help you clean up and unlink (or fix) all those broken links that accumulate over time.

Broken Link Checker will check your posts, comments and other content for broken links and missing images, and notify you if any are found.

It’s hard enough to keep our blogs fresh and current to keep Google happy, than to have to worry that old broken links that are no longer working are sending signals that our sites are not well kept or abandoned.

It’s especially important to the Blogging Underground network of blogs to keep our blogs as fresh and clean as possible. The blogs have had many thousands of articles posted in our blogs over the past few years and it’s only natural that links in the posts go bad.

While it may be natural – Google is always looking for signs that a website is stale and un-managed – so one of the ways I make sure the blogs are not filled with outdated and broken links is by using this easy to use plugin.

Broken Link Checker installs in any WordPress blog and will regularly check for broken links and send an email notification with the results.

Since it’s possible that some links may just be temporarily out of service – I always re-scan the links to make sure they haven’t come back before I “unlink” them.

That’s just one of the many things I do to make sure the Blogging Underground network of blogs provide the greatest value to our members who post in them.

After all – our goal is to get the maximum link juice from our blog posts – and keeping the blogs fresh and tasty ensures Google will continue loving them.

Broken Link Checker is a major time saver! I highly recommend getting this free plugin!

Oh, and by the way – if you are interested in getting links in our powerful network of hundreds of blogs – you really need to check out the Linking Special Offer!
