Internet Marketing and Better Backlinks

If you are interested in getting more free web traffic from search engines you will want to read this!

Hi it’s Mike Liebner and I am proud that my most successful online SEO project Blogging Underground, has matured into a full featured membership with a large list of features and benefits (most notably providing better backlinks!) that are helping business owners, internet marketers and webmasters of all types make more money from getting more targeted traffic to their websites!

Our traffic generating strategy is very powerful and is working very well now in 2014 and will be just as effective in the years ahead! In fact – this most recent algo update makes our primary technique of relevant contextual backlinks even more powerful than ever!

Blogging Underground aka BU, has really blossomed into a valuable asset for many web publishers who are getting lots of free search engine traffic from top rankings from posting articles in the BU blog network.

I was just recently asked a question about the blog network and the backlinks from Blogging Underground and I wrote a detailed response and decided I would like to share it with you here at my Internet Marketing Blog.

The question was: “How is Blogging Underground different than other blog networks?”

Thanks for asking! I could fill a few pages responding!

The simple answer is that Blogging Underground is very powerful because it allows members to post articles and get links within the content of their articles which are published immediately (or can be scheduled).

Links from articles with relevant content are very powerful and Blogging Underground makes it easier to get these kinds of super powered in-content text links!

There is no denying it – if our best web pages on our websites have keyword relevant text links pointing to them from relevant articles on other websites than our own that are indexed and trusted by Google – our linked pages will have substantially better rankings for keyword searches relating to the content!

Usually it is pretty hard to get these top shelf kinds of links.

Blogging Underground members have it easy with a Blog Post Utility that gives instant access to post any time they want in any of the 200+ blogs in the BU network.

Because it is so easy to post articles in the Blog Post Utility (BPU) which has a familiar WordPress like dashboard, Blogging Underground is much more fun to use than trolling for link partners or submitting articles to spammy directories!

Blogging Underground makes it easy to post articles in any of over 200 high quality blogs, with themes and categories to select from covering a wide range of topics!

These high quality blogs are spread across the globe on many different servers, ip addresses and hosting plans, giving us an even bigger boost to our pages that are linked!

It’s never been easier to get links fast and members who take advantage of the blog network as a part of a top rankings process can gets fantastic results very quickly.

Really – there is no other place like Blogging Underground right now – so almost everything is different compared to the other kinds of “blog networks” and automated link schemes.

Blogging Underground links are instant and work and are safe to use on your best and most important web sites! Of course they are also very good for linking to buffer and feeder sites too, such as free hosted blogs or social sites.

Not all links are created equal. Ours are the best!

More than ever after penguin and panda we need to be aware that some links, especially when in large quantities, are not only “low value” links that have little or no benefit, they’re also just plain dangerous and risky and can jeopardize the work you’ve done and the success you may enjoy with your sites.

The strategy at BU is to NOT BLAST LIKE A ROBOT or do other risky linking tricks.

Sure you can get a huge number of links from some other places, which may seem on the surface to be smart, but in reality they often have footprints associated with them and can really cause more damage than good! Comment links for example!

My intention is NOT to knock the other places you can get links. They are often OK for many purposes and adequate to use on feeder sites or lower value sites that are not your main money makers. The problem with a lot of the other places you can get links is the methods they use are risky. Blasting is NOT always the best to get to the top (and stay on top!).

With Blogging Underground helping you get backlinks, you need less links to get #1 rankings because the links from BU are better. Much much better. The kind of links you get as a member of Blogging Underground are the kind of backlinks Google likes the most because we do all the right things and do not do any of the things they do not like. We do not try to trick them or blast them for a quick short term gain.

Like I said earlier, not all links are created equal. Our links are the best kind! A few links on the Blogging Underground blog network go a long way!

Links from the Blogging Underground network of announcement blogs are the best kind of permanent relevant links that help you rank #1 for an exact keyword phrase.

  • The backlinks are featured prominently right in the body of the relevant content that YOU are 100% in charge of – and if you want – YOUR blog post content can be whatever you want it to be (original and unique on each post if you want, or snippets cut from good quality PLR articles work well with little effort).

You’re not stuck with the waiting and restrictions and duplicate crap that most other places pump out.

Most of the other places are too risky – we do exactly what Google likes the best – in fact – getting the right kind of links from BU is sort of like having an insurance policy to make sure they see good links coming in to your site – not just the same old garbage links that a lot of people blast their sites with.

Sure – a lot of people are happy to push a button and get a blast of 100’s or 1,000’s of backlinks – BUT – face it – Google is very smart and they know when that kind of stuff happens. They’re too smart and can see the patterns and they will not count those massive low quality links for much if anything – in fact – if you do too much too soon and too much like a robot – they may penalize you and put you in the penalty box – or worse yet – BAN YOUR SITE – or in extreme cases BAN YOUR SERVER (all of your sites).

Me, I don’t want to deal with all that stuff. I’d much rather give Google exactly what they want and give them the right kind of backlinks and NOT try to trick them by blasting them with massive low quality link spam.

I can make too much money by building sites the right way and linking them the way I know will safely get me number one rankings and keep there for a long time! That’s why I created the Blogging Underground network of announcement blogs – so I could safely link and stay out of trouble with Google.

Being a member of Blogging Underground with access to the growing network of announcement blogs is like having your own HUGE network of blogs that you can post in ANY TIME you want!

You can get the BEST KIND of RELEVANT BACKLINKS instantly any time you want! The posts are published right away. No waiting.

You get full access to every blog (over 200 right now and growing) from one central login and can post exactly the best way to get top rankings.

The blogs are all aged and have been indexed and respected by Google for a long time and are on servers and IP’s all over the world. Our members are getting tons of top rankings fast and easy and more important they stay on top because our links are valuable for a long time!

I could go on and on because I put a lot of time and effort to make this Blogging Underground network of announcement blogs work the right way.

Just think of it this way – if you tried to build this kind of blog network yourself it would cost a fortune. I know because I spent a lot of money over many years to get the sites indexed and respected by Google. Every month I gladly spend thousands of dollars on dedicated servers and domains.

I gladly share the hard work and give access to my network of blogs so you too can get top rankings fast and easy by posting and getting links in the blogs!

You do not need to build your own network.

You can just join Blogging Underground and use as many of the blogs as you want right away like they were your own without having to wait years for them to get a good reputation and pay all that money to keep them up.

The bottom line is – the links you get from Blogging Underground are the kind Google loves and they trust our blogs!

Well, I hope that answered the question and gives you a better idea about how Blogging Underground is different and BETTER than the “other blog networks”!

If you want to see the current number of blogs we have in the network – stop by to see the blog counter at:

Blogging Underground

Right now it shows 336 blogs at the time of this message, but hardly a day goes by that we don’t have new blogs added!

You’ll also find some great free training including a free PDF called “Pages NOT Posts” along with videos at my Blogs Equal Money site:

Bloggers and writers check out this new article with backlinking tips – some techniques are so easy and so rewarding they really shouldn’t be passed by!


  1. As I am new to internet marketing, I find that it is not that straight forward in getting traffic to my site. I have tried to create my own blog. Tried to do get traffic, doing backlinks and so forth.

    I do agree with you that some links, are not only “low value” links that have little or no benefit, they’re also just plain dangerous and risky and can jeopardize our works that we’ve done.

    Most links are often OK. But when we are so eager to get traffic to our site, things may become disadvantages to us.

    Blogging Underground sounds to be able to work better.

  2. Hi Norzam! Thanks for writing! You’re right in that it is not as simple as pushing a button or hiring a service and blasting a 1,000 links and thinking we are done – services that do that usually are not careful like we would be ourselves!

    I hope to help more poeple figure out that a handful of REALLY GOOD LINKS will work much better at getting top rankings and more importantly – KEEPING TOP RANKINGS!

    Comment by Mike — February 2, 2011 @ 11:23 am

  3. So do you use different websites for your links or you get your links listed in a more favorable spot on the page? Or both? I used a link building service before on a travel site and got my site removed from Google entirely because of the low quality links they added.

    Comment by dentist San Clemente — February 4, 2011 @ 4:14 pm

  4. Whatever you’re doing you need to get a variety of link types to ensure your link profile looks natural to Google. This is something that will become increasingly important as time goes on, and while Google seem to be focusing on eliminating low quality content from their index at the moment, you can bet they’ll turn back to linking structures again once they are happy with the results of that.

    Comment by David — February 9, 2011 @ 4:17 am

  5. Using the Blogging Underground blogs to get backlinks I have been able to move my sites up the Google ranking. I admit I have not got on page one for my Razor Pocket Rocket site but I continue to add articles on different Blogging Underground blogs to get those precise backlinks. Last time I checked I was on page 2 and climbing.

    Comment by Larry Romeo — February 21, 2011 @ 2:19 pm

  6. Good links, it’s true, are worth their weight in gold. My question about the AU links is not that they are quality links, that is given; however, what would really be nice for the members is to have at least one other great linking method available. As I’m writing this I’ve noticed your addition with RSS6 so that is also taken care of. AU is really starting to become a one place for all its members marketing needs. Keep up the good work, Mr. Leibner!

    Comment by Diamond Gold Hoop Earrings Gary — February 27, 2011 @ 4:31 pm

  7. I’ve been an AU member for almost a year and have put some of the articles to good use, but haven’t really taken advantage of the blogs yet. Think I’ll extend my membership and work on adding the BU blogs into my linking strategy. Haven’t had time to go through the BU tutorials much yet, but you’ve lit a fire under me to make that a priority too.

    Comment by Ken — March 5, 2011 @ 10:16 pm

  8. Interesting idea. I’ll look at the service some more and give it a go. Thanks for sharing.

    Comment by Tyent — March 17, 2011 @ 7:45 pm

  9. Hey Mike! great post
    You can create backlinks on your own or you can hire someone to do this work for you. But I think creating backlinks manually is better than hiring someone to do this for you.
    You can create backlinks by doing following things.

    1.Article Submission
    2.Rss Feed Submission
    3.Blog Optimization/Submission
    4.Forum Posting
    5.Directory Submission
    6.Social Bookmark
    7.Social Media Networking

    there are many more source of creating backlinks and you get permanent and long term traffic for years.

    Comment by Azhar Shaikh — April 13, 2011 @ 12:43 am

  10. Great post Mike. Backlinking is powerful but you have to focus on the right links and not go too crazy. You need variety and you need relevant links preferably from high page rank sources. Quality is better than quantity. The comment above from Azhar lists some solid methods for getting backlinks, and I would add video marketing into that mix. Thanks for the good info.

    Comment by Vid Marketing Video — May 4, 2011 @ 3:14 am

  11. Internet Marketing is short way to solve our types of problems

    Comment by Reseller webstie hosting india — May 8, 2011 @ 11:14 pm

  12. I totally agree with what was said – quality is better than quantity. I know the situations where one site got hundreds of links, and its competitor got only 3 links, and the competitor was higher in SERPs. Besides, backlinks have to be from trusted websites.

    Comment by social media company — May 24, 2011 @ 1:29 am

  13. i am new for this site so please submit some more detail to follow very well.

    Comment by best oil stocks — June 1, 2011 @ 7:23 pm

  14. Hi Mike,
    Yes – well you could say that was quite a response! I love using BU and have found it a great IM tool. Easy to use too!


    Comment by Catherine @ Affiliate Marketers College — June 28, 2011 @ 11:00 pm

  15. Backlinks are most important and it requires lot of hard work to get quality backlinks. Blogging may be one way of getting backlink but it all depends on the way we are using our blogs. If we use unique content relevant to our niche and if we link from that particular post then it will be effective.

    Comment by SEO training course — July 22, 2011 @ 2:44 am

  16. In acquiring backlinks, which type of sites are the best? I see that some people list the types of sites you can link to, but is there one particular type that seems to be most effective (for example, articles as opposed to other blogs)? Or does it not really matter what type it is, depending on the content?

    Comment by Mark — July 28, 2011 @ 9:23 am

  17. Hey Mike! very great post. I agree with what was said.
    Thanks for all!

    Comment by Android — August 9, 2011 @ 9:29 am

  18. Underground is a better way to build backlinks?

    Comment by silverlight developers — August 10, 2011 @ 12:42 am

  19. I’m really new to blogging and internet marketing. I’ve learned that backlinks are important if you want to rank in google and that google does not like poor quality links but am still struggling to figure out how to get good quality links, so thanks for article.
    Brenda S.

    Comment by Brenda — August 12, 2011 @ 12:33 pm

  20. Brenda, you’re certainly correct that quality should come before quantity with regards to back links. Poor quality back links simply bring down the reputability of your site and your right that they’re not looked on favourably by Google. Blogging is a good way to achieve effective back links; you are in control of which sites you post on and the quality of your posts. Doing this well does require time and effort; it’s important to engage fully with the discussion rather than posting generic, vague comments. Don well, back linking is a hugely effective tool and should noticeably increase your site traffic so I’d encourage you to look into it!

    Comment by Ian Jones — August 17, 2011 @ 9:04 am

  21. One good link is 1000 times better than spammy one…

    Comment by http://beautifulfacesdallas.com/ — August 17, 2011 @ 9:45 am

  22. Interesting post, thanks Mike. I have ‘blasted’ for backlinks in the past, but always with the worry that Google will slap me around. Now that I am starting a more serious Internet Marketing blog, I want to be sure that my strategies are safe.

    Comment by Gary Riding — August 22, 2011 @ 2:55 pm

  23. I am new to IM and have been researching the best way to gain backlinks. After reading your post, Mike I have a much better understanding. I have made the mistake in the past of thinking profile links were o.k. They have their place, but I now realise I need to really diversify my links if i want to have longevity in this business. Your post has just reinforced this for me so thanks.

    Comment by Amanda — September 27, 2011 @ 1:20 am

  24. I also agree. Blogging has turned out to be one of the best ways to earn backlinks. I have noticed that one blog post will actually return multiple back links. An awesome tool

    Comment by Pilot Shop — October 3, 2011 @ 6:06 pm

  25. Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.

    Thanks a lot for that extremely cool post.

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource

    You make a great point.

    Comment by juicy couture outlet tracksuits — October 20, 2011 @ 12:57 am

  26. Your view is definitely something Id like to see more of. Thanks for this blog. Its fantastic and so is what youve got to say.

    Comment by soccer jerseys — October 20, 2011 @ 12:57 am

  27. Thanks for writing this up. I think it is most important to realize that quantity is not more important than quality. At the end of the day, a million back links of low quality generated by an automatic tool are going to not compare to a handful of great quality links which you leave manually.

    Comment by Abbas — October 23, 2011 @ 4:25 am

  28. Hey Mike, Thanks for Sharing! I just got my blog up and running (I had one in the past, but let it go) Decided to give it a run again, will definitely have to check out blogging underground, cuz we all know how important it is to get quality backlinks and traffic to our websites! :)

    Comment by Jocelyn Jones — November 30, 2011 @ 3:12 pm

  29. I love the talks about quality backlinks. It always surprises me when you see someone post a bunch of nonsense just to get a back link. I understand most newbies really need to build up there seo, but when you build a solid brand you want to make sure it doesn’t have crap attached to it. So send some time creating good quality educational posts. Plus who wants alot of junk on there blogs? Thanks again for this great article.

    Comment by SIM 001 — December 4, 2011 @ 3:26 pm

  30. Valuable post and I agree with SIM 001. If you are going to build your Blog right then create quality and original content. Not familiar with this blogger underground concept but wan o know more.

    Comment by Duncan Bradford — December 5, 2011 @ 7:41 pm

  31. Great article for Internet Marketing .It has a lot of factors to do in order to be successful.

    Comment by Faruq Hosain — December 15, 2011 @ 6:35 am

  32. Hi Mike, Blogging Underground sounds like a great link building network. I have tried a couple of networks and so far I like build my rank, but many other networks didn’t impress me. Most of them are way to complicated to use and the results are not very impressive. I’ll have to check out Blogging Underground for sure! Cheers, Ingo

    Comment by german seo — December 17, 2011 @ 12:49 am

  33. There’s no doubt, every webmaster knows how important backlinks are. Only the advanced webmasters know that not all backlinks are created equal.

  34. The tragedy of life is not so much what men suffer, but what they miss.

  35. thank you for shaing…

    Comment by creature — December 31, 2011 @ 6:46 am

  36. I 100% agree with, especially on how smart google is and you will get penalised trying to trick them by buying hundreds/thousands of links. It is much better to get quality links – Links will obviously be a lot less than bought ones, but each link will be more favourable and you will be able to see quick (ish) results.

    Comment by Dentists in Solihull — January 11, 2012 @ 3:53 am

  37. I have a question, what’s the average page rank of each of the blogs in the network?

    Personally I wouldn’t want to sign up unless I knew the sites in the network had some good PR.

  39. There are very little sites in blogs in internet which worth to have backlinks in. And for that purpose there are special softwares which can search for that kind of sites.

    Comment by Jane Davidson — February 18, 2012 @ 4:31 am

  40. Very helpful for internet marketers like me.
    Thanks for sharing Mike!

    Comment by Shopping Bags — February 21, 2012 @ 10:56 am

  41. Hey Mike,

    I agree that too many link services just provide a bunch of worthless links. Recently a lot of backlinking sites were shut down by Google and their clients all suffered great losses. Right now, I think that manually creating backlinks is best, but I’ll have to check out Blogging Underground.

    Thanks for the info!
