I surf the internet A LOT as part of my job as a social media virtual assistant. I have multiple Google Alerts set up to assist with keeping me up to date on many of the new technologies, changes in “old” technologies, or to inform me of technologies that are just new to me.
Every so often I will make a new discovery that I feel I must share with you; and, last week, I made one of those discoveries. If you know anything about search engine optimization then you know how important it is to your website’s ranking on Google, and the website I discovered helps to automate the backlinking process for you. The website is called Social Monkee, and as I mentioned the service that site offers is completely free. Since I just discovered and started using the site I’m no expert with it, but here’s how it works.
First go to the Social Monkee website by clicking here, and register for your free account. By the way, in the interest of full disclosure – because that’s my style, if you click on the link above and register I will get credit towards an account upgrade. Now the real reason for this post is that this site is awesome, not because I want an account upgrade. If you feel like this site is too cool to live without then click the link above and share some love with the one who shared this site with you. If you don’t want to share the love, sign up for an account with them anyway by going directly to their site.
Next, install Social Monkee’s Firefox plugin. Then when you are on the page you want to promote, click on the monkey’s head in your Firefox Add On bar. The Social Monkee Firefox plugin will prepopulate the fields needed to enter backlinks for you. Check to make sure the information is correct, choose a category, preview, and then click submit. That is it!!
So, what did you just do that I am so excited about? You just created 25 UNIQUE do follow backlinks to your page. Social Monkee allows you to create 25 backlinks to your site each and every day for free. Of course, Social Monkee does have a paid plan that allows you to submit up to 100 unique backlinks each day for 3 different URL’s for a total of 300 daily backlinks. The cost of that plan is a one time fee of $47, but I truly believe 90% of the Realtors out there can make due with the free plan.
Social Monkee will post those backlinks slowly over time so Google doesn’t think you are trying to manipulate their system, and these backlinks will be listed in a report for your viewing pleasure after the job is done in a few days.
So, give Social Monkee a try today and start working your way to page 1 of Google. If you’ve used Social Monkee before and have some great tips to add, then please do so below. If you are just tickled pink that I shared this cool new site with you, then please leave that comment below as well. Don’t forget to enter a link to your URL in your comment so that you can get some Google juice since you are here anyway. I look forward to hearing from you.
