A Free Link-Maker Resource

The search engines on the Internet love active links which go into your website and links which point to your website. It takes some effort on your part to create these links. Maybe it comes from making comments on various blogs and pointing back to your own site.

Here's a new tool that I've started using called Real Link Finder. It's easy to use and the creator Neil Shearing has created some excellent brief instructional videos to show you exactly how to use this tool.

free blog commenting software

I've been using this free tool and it works well. It was simple to download, install and use which amounts to an unbeatable combination.

With a few clicks, you can change the website address that you are leaving with your relevant comment. Whether you have a new book or a new website or are simply trying to build your newsletter list, tools like Real Link Finder are valuable to put into your marketing arsenal.

I'm a bit confused. Does this product find links that already point to your website (as the name implies), or does it create links back to your website when you leave comments? If it's the latter, it sounds great!

This tool helps you search by key words for blogs with multiple comments. The fact these blogs allow multiple comments is a good sign they will also allow your comment--and your link which goes back to your website. It helps you find good places to put your own links. The more of those links out there raises your visibility with the search engines. I hope that is clearer.

I've read the FAQ and have never heard of nofollow before. I'm trying to understand it. Can you shed some light?

Hello Gina,

Yes, Neil uses the search engine term no follow definition (follow this link to go to the Wikipedia definition--which seemed pretty straightforward to me).

Bottom line is if you are going to use a link tool, you want the person who created it to be thinking about issues of how the search engines create links and use the links to create rankings in their systems--and Neil has taken all of these technical elements into account with the creation of his program.

As a user you invest consistent energy into writing the comments and links, you want to have the greatest pay off for that time investment in terms of pay off--rise in the search engine rankings for one pay off. Neil has done this work for you.

It's a bit technical but I hope that helps.
