Easy Offsite SEO with Simple and Fun Tools - A Complete Guide for you and the Kids

Let's do some Easy offsite SEO Work here! In this post I will show you how to make your content getting its own backlinks (and from your Scarpers too) and also will give your LinkBuilders some easy task to work on: Pinging Your new Posts!

The best tool to monitor and and trace and add a link to every piece of content scraped from your website is called TYNT. Tynt SEO essentially inserts a piece of code on every single page (not just content) of your site, and every time your text or images gets copied, Tynt adds automatically an attribution link, back to where your content was copied from. You also get some real cool SEO reports (e.g., how many copied your content and linked back to you.


  • Tynt has also many features that will  benefit your SEO:
  • Tynt automatically creates new fixed links across blogs, social networks, and other websites.
  • Tynt inserts links back to your pages whenever users share content copied from your site, creating a new source of social traffic.
  • Expand your reach to a like-minded, socially connected audience by enabling users to easily share your content through social media sites.
  • Tynt reveals your most engaging content and the topics & keywords driving users to and from your site
  • Tynt ensures your brand travels with your content wherever it’s pasted, expanding your brand’s reach to new audiences.







Why Don't you Ping Them too?

First, Do you know what Pinging a webpage is? 

Have you Ever Asked Yourself these Questions before?

  1. Why are blogs more powerful than ordinary websites?
  2. Why do search engine easily index blogs while other websites struggle to get indexed?
  3. Why do blogs attract more traffic than ordinary websites?


The answer is the blog’s ability to PING. Its not just a geeky term. Its a lot more powerful tool and process than you have imagined.

Whenever a blog pings, many background processes happen which get your blog quickly indexed by search engines as well as bringing traffic from many other sources.

There are many blog directories and ping services which accept pings. When you add a new post in your blog, it sends a ping to all these websites saying, “Hey, I’ve just added a new post in my blog”.

And that’s when magical things happen:


  • Some of those websites add your blog in their directory giving you a one way link.
  • Some of those websites list your blog in their recently updated blog list.
  • Search engines quickly come to your blog, index it and start sending traffic.
  • Blog search engines like Google Blog Search, Yahoo Search Blog, etc… also crawl and index your blog which in turn send additional traffic.
  • People visiting those blog directories see your blog there and come to your blog.
  • Blogrolling scripts like blogrolling.com and WordPress check update services to see if you’ve updated and then they reflect that on everyone’s site, usually by moving you to the top of people’s blogrolling list or putting a recently updated indicator by your link.
  • Services like Technorati (http://technorati.com) spider your links to tell who is linking to you and who you’re linking to, almost in real time. If you show up on someone’s Technorati link list for their site (often called an “egorati search”) they’re likely to visit your site to see what you said, increasing your exposure.
  • Other sites like weblogs.com and blo.gs list the most recently updated blogs and many people browse these to find something new when they’re bored.
  • Isn’t this pinging service a dream come true for the webmasters?


So, Let's Do Some Ping!!!

Ping-O-Matic is a service to update different search engines that your blog has updated. So, that you are proving to the digital world that you are the first who posted such content.

PingoMatic regularly check downstream services to make sure that they're legit and still work. So while it may appear like they have fewer services, they're the most important ones.

How To Ping Comments and Mass Ping?

You can Ping comments the same way you ping posts. by enabling them to have their own URLS and adding them to the above lists. And if you have a lot of comments that you want to Ping them all at once, you can also do that in Bulk vua PingFarm. First, you need to create a list of all the URLs, then upload them to this tool.

A Ping Warning for WordPress Bloggers!

You have seen numerous advantages of using ping but this same ping can work against you if you don’t use it properly. If you are using WordPress the way it is provided then it’s very possible that by now your blog has been banned from many ping services because of ping spamming.
If you are using WordPress the way it is provided then it’s very possible that by now your blog has been banned from many ping services because of ping spamming.
Also, scheduling future posts in that way will actually irritate ping services and your blog will quickly get banned from the ping services.

So, What is the Solution for such a dilemma?

The Solution: MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer Plugin. MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer plugin corrects WordPress’s pinging system and solves all the problems listed above for even the latest version of WordPress.

How It Works?


  1. When you create a new post, your blog will ping and notify all the ping services that it has been updated. This encourages search engines and different blog directories/services to index your updated blog properly.
  2. When you edit an existing post, it won’t send an unnecessary ping to ping services and saves your blog from getting banned.
  3. When you post a future post by editing the time stamp, it will ping only when your post appears in future. It won’t unnecessarily ping many times when you schedule posts as WordPress does by default.



What if you do not want to be Hotlinked to Save your bandwidth? 

You can stop others from hotlinking your site's files by placing a file called .htaccess in your Apache site root (main) directory. The period before the name means the file is hidden, so you may want to edit your file as htaccess.txt, upload it to your server, then rename the txt file to .htaccess in your directory. Contact your web host on how to access your directories and configure your .htaccess file.

Example: Your site url is www.mysite.com. To stop hotlinking of your images from other sites and display a replacement image called qX4w7.gif from an image host, place this code in your .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(.+\.)?mysite\.com/ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteRule .*\.(jpe?g|gif|bmp|png)$ http://i.imgur.com/qX4w7.gif [L]



The first line of the above code begins the rewrite. The second line blocks any sites other than your own mysite.com url. The [NC] code means "No Case", meaning match the url regardless of being in upper or lower case letters. The third line means allow empty referrals. The last line matches any files ending with the extension jpeg, jpg, gif, bmp, or png. This is then replaced by the qX4w7.gif image from the imgur.com server. You could easily use your own hotlink image by placing an image file in your site's directory and pointing to that file instead.


To stop hotlinking from specific outside domains only, such as myspace.com, blogspot.com and livejournal.com, but allow any other web site to hotlink images:


RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://(.+\.)?myspace\.com/ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://(.+\.)?blogspot\.com/ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://(.+\.)?livejournal\.com/ [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(jpe?g|gif|bmp|png)$ http://i.imgur.com/qX4w7.gif [L]

You can add as many different domains as needed. Each RewriteCond line should end with the [NC,OR] code. NC means to ignore upper and lower case. OR means "Or Next", as in, match this domain or the next line that follows. The last domain listed omits the OR code since you want to stop matching domains after the last RewriteCond line.


You can display a 403 Forbidden error code instead of an image. Replace the last line of the previous examples with this line:

RewriteRule .*\.(jpe?g|gif|bmp|png)$ - [F]

Warning: Do not use .htaccess to redirect image hotlinks to another HTML page or server that isn't your own (such as this html page). Hotlinked images can only be replaced by other images, not with an HTML page.

As with any htaccess rewrites, you may block some legitimate traffic (such as users behind proxies or firewalls) using these techniques.

HOW DO I TEST IMAGE HOTLINKING?

Use AltLab URL hotlink checker to check the hotlink protection on your web site. Simply enter the complete URL (ex:http://mysite.com/image.jpg) to see if your image can be loaded and hotlinked by a remote server.
