Other Strategies SEO

Fake Your Referrer

This is a very old strategy, somewhat sneaky. Use at your own risk!

There are many uses for this. Believe it or not I just saw someone using it, faking referral stats to one of our sites, banking on that fact that we would see it in our analytics and wonder about it. They generated thousands of hits to our site all coming from one domain name. Which of course, me and my team all visited out of curiosity.  Not that it worked to convert us into sales, and I doubt it works very well for anyone, but it did generate traffic!

That is just one use for it. Watch the video and let your creative juices flow.

Make Money From Wikipedia – Free Video Course

Details on how to get my “make money from wikipedia” course (free) early next week.

Now I know that many of you are going to say that Wikipedia links are no follow so they don’t have value. But if you watch the video you will see just one example of how valuable these types of edits in Wikipedia can be. 

I have used Wikipedia edits for reputation management, for backlinks, for citations on local businesses, and more. Using it for backlinks in particular can be way more valuable than you would imagine. First of all even though officially Wikipedia  is a nofollow site oh, that doesn’t mean that Google does not recognize or noticed that you have a back link from there. And because of Wikipedia is strict editorial policies you better believe that Google text note if someone successfully gets a link from there. 

The other thing that many people forget is that Wikipedia gets cloned and copied all over the place. So if you get a back link from Wikipedia many times that back link will end up on other sites that copy that Wikipedia content. Without further Ado here’s the video:

Also, here’s the link to my earlier Wikipedia video on getting links from wiki images (I invented this technique):


Free Wikipedia External Link


The technique below is just ONE of the techniques from my full wikipedia traffic course.

The video course is 100% free, check it out here.

Wikipedia is a very good place to get a link to your site. True, their external links are nofollowed, but don’t be fooled, Google takes note of links from Wikipedia, and these links will show Google that your site is a trusted site. It will contribute overall to the authority of your website. It is so easy to do, there’s no reason you shouldn’t get a least one link from Wikipedia to each one of your websites.

UPDATE: The images that I posted as an example in this video have all been deleted. I thought this would happen, especially since I made this public and thousands of people are viewing this blog post. The main reason the images were deleted was because of copyright issues (google’s logo in screenshot). However, my links in other niches (that I won’t make public) were not deleted, so if you do this, stay under the radar with it and make sure the images are actually constructive additions to wikipedia.

Here’s how to do it:

End result:

Followed link from the wikipedia article, through your image, to the “image profile page”

Then, the profile page contains the link to your website. Make sure to include the keywords, separated with dashes, in the URL for the “original image location.”

If you get enough internal wikipedia image links to this “image profile page” (example below) you could even get it to rank all by itself!

Here is the sample code for inserting your image in the wikipedia article.
