Best Places To Harvest Backlinks And Traffic For Our Blog Pages

Aside from the social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and bookmarking sites, etc. that online writers are happily using to promote their published articles online - there are other places I know where to market our articles to harvest backlinks and traffic for our blog pages. They are Wikipedia, LinkedIn and ZEEF.

Mostly of us online writers believed that Wikipedia is just for references purposes - mostly of the time we used this online encyclopedia to look for meanings, definitions and explanation for a word, phrases, of an event, history and other imaginable things where Wikipedia can contribute to help us support for a topic that we are about to write. And yes, Wikipedia has become the most authoritative website that even Google favorited it. And yes, Wikipedia is a Wiki - that anyone can edit it - and anyone has the opportunity to become one of their editors who can edit

both the protected and unprotected pages found on their site.

But Wikipedia is not just for references but also it is a place to harvest backlinks and traffic to our article pages. When a person becomes its site editor, he is called a Wikipedian - he is entitled to edit unprotected pages found on their site. There are lots of broken links on the site that need to be fixed. A Wikipedian is also entitled to create his own pages on their site after he opened an account and is approved. This is where an online writer can promote his article pages. He will create pages with the contents are articles published on EC or on other sites that he wanted to promote - aiming for backlinks and traffic.

Secondly, an online writer can also use LinkedIn to promote their best high

quality articles. Yes. It is said that LinkedIn is created intended only for professional social networking site. And it has over three hundred million users now. However, LinkedIn has just opened a section where an online writer can publish and enjoy his blogging activities. The site has pulse section that allows its users to write and publish their original and high quality articles. This is the place where EC writers can use LinkedIn to promote their write-ups without spending money.

Aside from LinkedIn and Wikipedia - there is another interesting place to harvest backlinks and traffic for our article pages - this is a new innovation of Internet marketing Technology service - its mission is to help online surfers find the best site, products and services online. They called it Zeef. At Zeef - a user does not need to write article there. He is called curator. His job is to search and filter relevant links to quality contents and rank the best results. As curator he can create his own pages too and curate his best articles published on EC as his Zeef page contents. This is where an online writers can promote and share their best high quality articles to the thousands Internet surfers. 

(Note: I originally wrote this article based from my experiences with Wikipedia, LinkedIn and ZEEF and not yet published somewhere else).

    Interesting information about the sites you mention here. I have used the first two sites for other reasons and the site Zeef I have not heard of until reading your artilce. The only problem I had with LinkedIn is a couple of what I call "snobs" who preferr to put other writers down. But that can happen with any site. Thanks for posting your information.
