Making The Best Of Geocities Demise – Smart Linkbuilding Tips
In case you missed it, Yahoo has taken Geocities offline. This creates an excellent opportunity to build links.
Well, I am not the originator of this idea so I’ll just link to this excellent link building article where everything is explained.
By the way, there’s one comment below the article that I want to quote here:
Melanie Nathan said:
“I suspect that most people will be too lazy to put in the work of doing the research and contacting each site though. That’s good. Their loss = our gain.”
I agree 100%.
I also keep in mind a short sentence from a very successful person (forgot who it was):
Do It Now.
Update: I followed my own advice and started emailing people when I found out another tip: once you identify the geocities page to which a site links, run a backlink report from Yahoo on that geocities page to find out other websites still linking to it.
