You can use the Alexa extension for Chrome, to get access to a site's backlinks, easily. However, you need to pay $9.99 a month if you want to see more than 5 backlinks.

Golly! Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.

I use the alexa extension every other day, when I want to see how popular a site has become. They have a nice web site ranking system, but some may argue against it saying that the rank is easily manipulated.

Short but Sweet Link Swap Emails

My email password has been hacked. That's the third time I've had to rename the cat.

Anyways, I forgot what I was going to write.

Bingo! Here is it: Want to spend time on getting dofollow links? Do link exchanges.

Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.

From my experience, you will get a nofollow link about 3% to 5% of the time.

Shucks, you don't even need to mention "nofollow" throughout the exchange process, because it is just something that doesn't need to said. The less wording in your link exchange conversation, the easier it is for the other webmaster to add your link.

Out of site, out of mind.

Keep the emails short but sweet and you will do fine!

Keep on keepin' on, and be cool! Positive things happen to positive people.

All links should count in engine algorithms!

Hey Google: All incoming links should count in engine algorithms. Webmasters need to avoid adding unworthy resources to their site. Instead of adding a resource and giving it a nofollow tag, just don't add it, when it is not worthy of engine follow consideration. Right?

It is what it is.

"Gotta get that. Gotta get that that that."

No? "It's okay I understand. This ain't no never-never land."

Alexa Sites Linking In

So, here's some good knowledge that could change over time: "sites linking in" carry the nofollow tag at, I just checked.

Ok, were good on that knowledge. Now how about this: Alexa "sites linking in" at are dofollows, but require a log in to see.

In conclusion: Alexa "sites linking in" are nofollows, unless engine algorithms look at Alexa's logged in pages. What does this mean? It means that you probably are not getting credit for incoming links at Alexa. Not a big deal, in my opinion. I still use "sites linking in" to find new ad opportunities.

So, what do you think?

Turn nofollow backlinks to dofollow

Josh MacDonald: "Reddit is a popular social networking slash news site where users can submit content which will be voted on by other members. All backlinks are nofollow by default but after a few upvotes, they turn to dofollow."

Priorities of a Search Engine

We can gage search engines' priorities, looking at their terms and conditions. We can also look at the things they implement, like the nofollow attribute.

We know that relevant keyword results in SERPs (search engine result pages) are a priority. That is an easy one.

From my experience with doing keyword searches, I can say that engines have improved their result pages over the last few years. My guess is that they have been successfully combating the SEO's ability to trick the algorithms for higher keyword rank. Keyword relevancy is important to engine user satisfaction.

The nofollow attribute is in existence for the benefit of all engine users. It helps to reduce unrelevant web pages coming up in the SERPs.

I am thankful for the nofollow tag because it reduces engine spam. I too use engines to search. I do not just use it to promote my web site.

Useful resources and services located at the top of all keyword searches is the ultimate goal of search engines. A useful web page is one that users need based on their keyword search.
