Created & Updated My Personal Audio Blog

27 09 2009

Hello All,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend on this sunny Sunday afternoon we are having over here on the  east coast.

I’ll keep it short for today as to I want to get back outside and enjoy whats left of this beautiful day we’re having.

… So, just a quick update for now:

Over  the  past  few months, I’ve been testing several different blog platforms in an attempt to  find the most feature-rich, and user-friendly options available.   In doing so I’ve  ended up with several blog sites.  In an effort not to have  the  exact same content on each of  them,  I recently changed and updated one of them to an AUDIO ONLY blog site.

You can check it out and bookmark  it at: http://AudioBlog.BenjaminKee.com.

Take a listen and let me know what you think by leaving me a comment.

Also, please take the quick survey that I created on the right-hand column of the audio blog and tell me the topics that you would like to hear more about and I’ll do just that …. Create more audio posts discussing exactly what YOU want to learn on.

I hope you find it useful and informative.

Until next time,

Ben

PS.  Now get outside and have some fun! 😉

How To Get Unlimited Backlinks from Qassia

19 01 2009

What Are Backlinks?

If you know what backlinks are, then you can skip this section. Backlinks are incoming links to your website, and they are essential for making your website rank well in the search engines. This is because these days search engines calculate something called “link popularity” and that is determined by how many backlinks you have, where they are coming from, and how many backlinks the sources of your backlinks have. It gets complicated, but essentially, the more backlinks you get, the better.

Backlinks come in two categories, nofollow and dofollow. They look identical when appearing in a browser; the difference is a qualifier called “rel” in the HTML source code of the links. The nofollow backlink instructs search engines to disregard it when calculating link popularity. Hence nofollow backlinks are, to put it bluntly, useless backlinks. Meanwhile, normal links – called dofollow these days to distinguish from nofollow backlinks – are quality backlinks.

The reason many backlinks are nofollow is that sites are punished for selling dofollow backlinks (as this artificially boosts link popularity), and outgoing link popularity per link is diluted by a large number of dofollow backlinks on a page.

Your Backlinks on Qassia

At Qassia – and as far as we know, only at Qassia – you can get unlimited quality (dofollow) backlinks. These backlinks are found on intel pages. Intel is content contributed by Qassia members, and each intel page may contain one backlink pointing to the contributing member’s website. So you get one backlink to a site of your choosing per intel you contribute.

The backlink is found right under the intel content, and is accompanied with a screenshot of your website.

The dofollow backlinks from the intel pages pointing to your websites are set when the contributor adds intel. On the form for adding intel, there is a section for choosing the backlink, from a list of websites the contributor has added to Qassia. Note that we only allow backlinks to authenticated sites; if the website has not been authenticated, the backlink will not appear on the intel page.

Nofollow Links

Links to your website(s) will also appear on your user page, in our tags directory, and in our search results, as well as in the list of top sites, but these links – unlike the links on intel pages – will all be nofollow links.

However, links pointing to our intel pages (which bear your backlinks) are dofollow even on your user pages, in our tags directory, and our search results, ensuring that link clout is passed on to your backlink.

Improving Your Backlink Quality

To enhance your link popularity gain derived from Qassia, try to add as much intel as possible of as high quality as possible. Intel of high quality (with a high rating assigned by fellow users of about 3.0 or higher) is listed on our front page and gets indexed much more rapidly by the search engines than intel of low quality.

Just one or two backlinks from Qassia may not have much of an effect, so add as many intel as possible. Note that intel of low quality (composite grade of 2.0 or lower) is not archived on the same page as the other intel, and may not be listed at all in our tags directory or search results, as only the top 10 intel in terms of grade are included.

In conclusion, it is important to keep adding backlinks of consistently good quality, in order to gain maximum benefit from Qassia.

To Your Success!

Ben
