I always take notice of the individuals who participate on this blog by leaving comments to my posts (that is why you should leave comments on all the blogs you read). And one thing I noticed was many of your business websites don’t have your links followed on AboutUs.org. That is having them remove rel=”nofollow” on the links from aboutus.org to your website. Otherwise known as a Dofollow backlink.
So I thought I’d let you know of a great way to get free, anchor-text friendly links from a great resource.
If you don’t already have your website listed on AboutUs then DO IT NOW. But also don’t just add your website, do it thoroughly. Once you have your listing complete and looking good, then you can ask them to remove rel=”nofollow”. Check out this discussion on how to get your links profollowed on AboutUs.
What I usually do is create a complete business listing there, then go to their chat room and ask someone to profollow my listing. They usually reply fairly quickly, but if not you can send them an email too.
Be sure to do a good job with your business listing before making the request. This is a great free resource for small businesses to build quality links and get some additional web presence. Not only that, the better you do with your listing the higher up you will show in their category lists. For example, my business website and my SEO blog come up #2 and #3 respectively for SEO. http://www.aboutus.org/list/seo. I’ll go into optimizing your aboutus.org listing in another post.
