5 Social Network Website Backlinks That Google Loves:
I would be explaining in simple terms how to get backlinks that matters from these social network websites.
Most people always thought that they’re building backlinks from these authority websites, but what they don’t know, is that they’re actually spamming in the most “marked as spam” way, which might get their account suspended or disabled.
When building backlinks from authority websites, make it look more like you’re human, and you’re trying to enrich the lives of their (social network) users, which could be achieved by writing more than 100 words + and add a link to read more about it. That would certainly make it look wonderful.
According to latest facebook update, the more your words followed by your link, the more you will have views and reached people you’re targeting.
I have a short story to share about Google+ community, when it came out, I was like, since google owns this community, hundreds of their bots must be waiting to rank any website that is shared here, and I guess you know what I did?
Well, I start a massive spamming campaign, sharing just less than 10 words with my links, in communities, business pages, and in comments.
Well, this got my account suspended and it’s my google account that is showing my author profile in google search. This also got my profile picture removed from search, but thank God my gmail and adsense account were not marked as spam

The BEST way on how to get a do-follow link from google+ is from a page description. You can go to your “about” and edit it. Then ensure that you write about yourself and link to your blog from the description, that would give you a do-follow link from google+ community.
You can also get quality link from facebook through their description box too. I would advice you to create or if you have a page already, just go edit it and add your website link in the SHORT and LONG description box.
Make sure that you start the link with “http”
I know you already have a twitter account, but if not, just create an account and on your profile, you should just create a short description about yourself and link back to your website.
You can also get an authority website link from your profile in twitter.
It’s also a social network where you can get hundreds of thousands of Visitors if your blog post get stumbled many times by other stumblers, then consider yourself lucky, and just like Digg, you will get lots of traffics and make more money off anything profitable on your website.
But the truth here is that you must share something controversy, something never seen before. something exposing.
If you have a page with lots of likes, or a twitter account with lots of followers, these can really go a long way in helping you get your blog post to the top and will help get your blog some authority website links.
Linkedin is a community that connects business owners together, and get you to know each other. The truth here is that getting quality backlink from Linkedin is through the profile.
These are just five “social networks” to get authority backlinks from, but here is a must read for all bloggers who want to build authority backlinks and rank their website/niche blog in google using this helpful and free authority links.
Since am not talking about getting traffic here, I would leave the traffic for another day.
Please, you can also get your blog posts more authority links by sharing them in Linkedin.
Make sure that you don’t spam linkedin, or your can account might get banned.
In Digg, you don’t need to create an account, you can just sign up using your twitter or facbook account.
But there’s a page to submit blog posts, and if you have friends in digg who can vote your post and it reached the top front page, then consider yourself a god for that duration, because your earnings and traffic would triple, and if your host is not strong, then sorry, because the traffic will surely crumble your account. But in Digg, you can only submit a post url, not your homepage url.
