    Identifying relevant links for keywords


    I worked out a method for identifying pages that are relevant for your keyword and, as such, would be excellent link partners. You need them to move up in Google's SERPS. Besides the obvious pages that are returned for a search term (keyword) by Google, there are other, not so obvious, pages that have linking power for that keyword.

    I did a test on this and I was able to bring a dropped competing site back into the SERPS by linking to it from my own page that had also been dropped.

    The method involves generating two different searches, one based on your keyword and another based on allintext:your keyword. A comparison is done between the two lists, looking for pages in the allintext:your keyword list (Oldscore pages) that do not appear in the latest SERPS, that is, your keyword list (Local Rank).

    Those pages that you identify will be very likely to exchange links after you explain that they have been dropped by Google for not having relevant links. I did the searches and comparisons manually and it is a long and tiring process.

    Consequently, I had a program designed to do the searches and comparisons automatically. The result is an e-mail that lists the relevant pages and they are hyperlinked so that linking requests can be started immediately, working from the e-mail.

    The site can be accessed from the Keyword Themed Links hyperlink in my signature below.

    Good method. Too bad you are charging for something so simple.

    conroy,

    Actually, it is not so simple; the manual process left me with burning eyes and a wicked edge to my temper.

    I'm trying to call Bill Gates to get his opinion about charging for the service but he will not take my call.

    Excellent! I have been beating my head against the wall in an attempt to increase my backlinks from like product category sites. I have managed to get a few from sites that are listed in the top ten for some keywords but never considered this method.

    Thanks for the post!

    Thanks, just ordered when do I get my list?


    Hi Luke,
    I have an idea your theory is dead on from what I have seen. As far as the list costing - so what - its a write off, and I do not have the time to waste manually checking. What are your thoughts on where the links should be exchanged - idex to index? How many do you think would be needed to break the theme barrier. And what do you think the effects of swappping links with the survivors (not that they would) - would that just make them stronger or would some theme rub off. I hope exchanging with the tired, weak and downtrodden will be the trick as I am sure it will not be hard to convince them to swap.
    LateNight

    ps - in the short time since joining this forum I have got far better information on combatting the new Google than WMW - public or private.

    Hi LateNight,

    I figured most would consider the $15.00 a good investment.

    The incoming link must be pointed precisely to the page that you are targeting for that keyword and try to get the link from his competing page that targets the same keyword.

    As far as exchanging links with the survivors goes, your competitor is getting one link, yours, whereas you are getting a number of links. Everybody wins (gains) but you win more because you will gather more. It's a dogfight, remember.

    Some dropped sites are very highly placed in the Oldscore SERPS and should give you a powerful boost.

    PS - Sent you a private message.

    Nice Job Luke,
    This type of forward thinking and ingenuity is exactly what it takes to recover from updates and algo changes.

    I just wantto make sure people understand what "allintext" does and that you should NOT accept links just because they rank for allintext:Blue widgets they may be a bad partner

    From Google...
    "Starting a query with the term "allintext:" restricts the results to those with all of the query words in only the body text, ignoring link, URL, and title matches. "

    This is helpful in finding link partners in your field, just as any other search would be for allinanchor, allintitle etc. However with this new algorithm something doesnt have to mention the kw in the onpage copy for google to consider it relevant.

    An example I gave was www.delphi.com #4 for "forums" yet doesnt mention the word on the site. however if I want to rank well for "forums" you can be damn sure that the link from delphi would help me.

    The point im trying to make is that the final relevance is "not" going to be determined by the fact that you have another site with your kw on it, in fact all the worst spam sites out there have hidden text and kw upon kw so If I type in allintext:green widgets I may well come across someone with 100% density (it could just be a spam page that only contantained "green widgets" over and over) so should I link to him...no

    In fact I did a search allintext:green widgets and low and behold right there on the first page was a porn site, the guy just happens to have a blog and he used green widgets in a comment, but his site is not about green widgets at all! and this is the only place its mentioned.

    This site would make a very bad partner for a green widgets website.

    Not to shoot you down Luke, this is a great way to "start" looking for relevant partners, just make sure you still do the same dudilligence when examining just who it is your linking to.
    Good luck
    Webmasters who spend their energies upholding the spirit of the basic principles [Of Google] will provide a much better user experience and subsequently enjoy better ranking than those who spend their time looking for loopholes they can exploit. Google.com

    what does this do?
    It identifies pages that have your keyword somewhere on it's page, then checks to see if that page is currently in Google's SERPS for that keyword. If not, then the site is added to a hyperlinked list of potential link partners, which is e-mailed to you. You are then able to contact those pages by working from your hyperlinked list.

    As seo guy pointed out, you will have to exercise the same good judgement, when selecting link partners, as you would for any other link request.

    seo guy,

    Thanks for the kind words and also for the clarification about allintext.

    Your cautious approach to selecting link partners should be noted by all members and guests because you are considered one of the top people, if not the top, in the field of Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

    *Your cautious approach to selecting link partners..*

    Are you serious? Sure your man is positively promiscuous ;-)
    Just wondering if using allintitle might not be a better initial bet?

    I think the point of comparing the two lists instead of just using the allintitle list is that the comparison will pull out just those people who have likely dropped from the rankings and are probably anxious to get back in. So contacting them for a link exchange, with the explanation of how it may help them return to the serps, would mean that some competitors who wouldn't normally link to you may be very anxious to do so now.

    glengara,

    Even if true, the fact remains that he is very selective. His post attests to that fact.
