How to Create Less Backlinks 234 Comments
How to Create Less Backlinks

In this post I’m going to explain how to create less backlinks but still rank very well in the search engines.

Most people don’t enjoy building backlinks, I on the otherhand have a mild addiction to it, and enjoy the strategy of backlinking and working out new and better ways to be effective in my backlinking plan for my affiliate marketing sites.

One of he most common mistakes I see people make when it comes to backlinking, is ignoring their indexing. When I say indexing, I mean whether or not Google (and other search engines) have found AND indexed the page that the links are on.

If they haven’t indexed the page, then they won’t be counting the link on that page as a link to your site to help improve your sites rankings.

Most people just get as many backlinks as they can and hope for the best. This is never the best approach, for a number of reasons, first that the number of backlinks is not really what matters, it’s more the quality and the rate at which you build them, but that’s for another post altogether.

The second reason is that if you take a step back and work out the percentage of the pages with your links on them, that have actually been indexed by Google, then you can start to plan to increase the number of pages indexed by Google, meaning you can build less backlinks.

Work Efficiently

By focusing on getting more of the pages with your links on them found and indexed, means you can spend less time having to create more links, because your backlinking will be more effecient.

Remember the best kind of backlinks are ones that are contextual, which means they are found in the middle of content, and creating this content to place you links in takes times and resource, so the less you have to create the better!!

Most online marketers get anywhere from 10%-30% of their links found, which is not high at all. If you don’t know the percentage of your links that are getting indexed, then you affiliate-marketingdefinitely need to start looking at this. My indexing rate is currently over 80%, which I’m very pleased with, however I now want to get it to over 90%, which I intend to very soon!

My SEO manager and I, have weekly meetings about indexing, amongst other things, and we’re constantly testing new ways to get more of our links found. One of the things that helped us increase the index rate to over 80%, was not giving up on URL’s until Google indexed them, sounds obvious, but let me explain.

We have a system in place of indexing techniques that we first put all our URL’s through (I can’t reveal my secret sauce completely here), and then we check all the URL’s again to see if Google indexed them, and the ones that were not indexed, are placed in another list of non indexed URL’s, where we continue to link to these pages, using automated social bookmarking and blog comment tools, hitting them with loads of links on auto-pilot.

We then check the list again to see what got indexed, and everytime we do this the percentage goes up and up. Most people don’t do this, and they either have no idea where their links are and how many Google has found, or they use one indexing tool and hope that works and leave it at that. However I highly encourage you to focus more on indexing as it makes a big difference.

Google often won’t index a page if there are no links coming into that page, so if your links are on new pages and these pages have no links coming into them, then Google will either never find the page, so they won’t find the links, or they will find it but won’t index it. This is why you need to use indexing methods to get pages indexed.

Where Are My Links?

It is not uncommon for SEO marketers to have no idea where their links are. Many people just build as many links as they can and hope it works. I don’t do this, as I like to work smart and build the least amount of links possible. Therefore I keep a record of the pages my links get placed on. Sometimes this can be more difficult, for example if you’re a member of a blog network, and they don’t give you the URL’s of the blogs in their network, to protect their network.

This makes it hard to know where your links are, however if your site is a wordpress blog, and another blog links back to you, ie. one from a blog network, then you get notified in your WordPress dashboard with a “PingBack”. Open the link in that pingback and you now have the URL of the page linking to you, then check if it has been indexed!!

You can save yourself a lot of time by increasing your indexing rate. For example, if you build 1000 links a week, and only 20% get indexed, that is 200 successful backlinks. However if you can even increase the index rate to 30%, then you just got 300 successful links, which is 100 more.

Getting these 100 more indexed links is much easier than having to create 100 new links. Now imagine if you can take that 20% right up to 80%, that’s 600 more links and you have just saved yourself a lot time and will be working much more efficiently, which is very important when it comes to SEO.

Some of you might have tried or are still using RSS feed submissions to get your links indexed, but I don’t use them anymore, simply because I do a lot of testing and they just don’t work very well. I never just listen to what everyone says, I like to test things and see what actually works for myself, and I encourage you to do that as much as you can.

I hope this SEO tip helped. Very soon I’m launching my concise and very indepth SEO training product, where you can learn everything fine detail about how I do my SEO,Β  so you can replicate my systems, which includes the exact methods I use for getting this 80% indexing rate. The launch date is Oct 25th, stay tuned….

    I will be watching for this tool Matt. I am a bit stuck on the backlinking stuff myself although I have been finding more and more ways to do it ( stuff I shoulda been doing a year ago already) but I guess it’s never too late to get smarter, eh? πŸ™‚

    You say: “I can’t reveal my secret sauce completely here”.

    So why say anything unless you tell us the whole truth? This attitude helps continue the 97% IM failure rate and bolsters your bottom line in the face of it.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Well that is quite a poor attitude really Chaz, I did tell you useful things here, like to take notice of what links are indexed, and also then to focus on getting these pages indexed, and the ones that are not to move them into a new list and auto social bookmark these and auto blog comment them. You can’t expect everything for free my friend, I work hard to look after my subscribers and protect them from all the scammers out there on the net, but I guess sometimes you just can’t please everyone….

    Martin here…
    Been following you for sometime. Well from the day I opened the “allinanchor” e-mail. How long has that been Matt. A couple of years. I use your information in a different way as you know. You have when I asked a question sent me personal email. Like myself you try to help everyone and are very protective of those same people. My background in Social Media Management/ Consulting was in part due to a lot of the very things you post here. I think it could be being taken advantage to a degree in what others expect of you. If they step back and look, they’ll get it or they just won’t. In any case, it’s their choice to make and sad they don’t see the entire picture, think outside the box or at least try to, and take what you share( very important word “Share”) with us on here. Take the info squeeze it hard to get every drop that ‘s worth from it as it has never failed to open doors you never could of opened yourself. Just need to accept and get there arms all the way around that idea.To you Matt from all of us, just a thank you for helping…. Always a pleasure.

    To everyone else… Matt’s emails were the very first I ever saved because of how important this information was for those I help. (Matt thanks for your WP videos I’ve since made over the years my own personal ones for in house use only. But My start was with yours.) I’m not saying you hit the nail on the head every time. I’m saying it’s always valuable and that far more important to me.

    Thanks for your kind words there Matt, pleasure to have you as a subscriber



    Sean Kaye Reply:

    I wouldn’t sweat it Matt, you’re one of the ethical people in this industry. The truth is, people like Chaz are never going to buy your course, so the quality of information you’ve given on your indexing strategy is good enough.

    I’ll be certainly buying your course on October 25th and if you pull punches in that, then I’d probably call “shenanigans”. However, as a Rapid Profit Formula customer, I’m certain you’ll deliver the goods.

    Very informative post, BTW!

    Thanks man, you’re a top guy!

    Chaz, at least say thank you. You don’t really know what is the importance of your indexing rate in your website right? Believe me follow what Matt said. Indexing rates are very important.

    Matt, thanks for those tips. I thought that I was the only blogger that have a high priority in checking the indexing rates. Almost all of my blogs and sites has an index rate of 90% on average. One of them is almost 100% I just have to post anything in that blog and it will be indexed and ranked as well! When you hit this stage you will not worry about building backlinks.

  4. September 21, 2011 at 11:42 am | Permalink

    Good tips. Never give up on those links. One way I’ve found that works well for me to get forum profiles indexed is by interlinking them. In some profiles I will put links to my other profiles. I’ve been testing it out with decent success rates. I hadn’t noticed the RSS feed submissions not working as well but, like you, I do a mix of things to get links indexed and have not tested RSS on its own. Time for a new test!

    Interesting read as ever Matt, also looking forward to the new product release.

    I have a question for you; wouldn’t it be much more efficient if people just backlink their backlinks? This usually helps with indexing rates as a bi-product of doing so – also I’m curious if YOU backlink your backlinks as a priority and if so, what services do you use?

    Thanks for the read and information Matt.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Nick

    Yeah in a way indexing is backlinking your backlinks, it’s just how you go about that, whcih makes all the difference



  6. September 21, 2011 at 11:43 am | Permalink

    Thanks for this article, Matt. I had never thought about checking if my backlink sources were indexed or not. What you say makes a lot of sense so I will be looking at things differently as I go forward.

    Looking forward to hearing more from you on the subject of indexing.

    This may be a simple question to be asking, but what method or methods do you use to index sites? Also how do you quickly determine if your backlinks are indexed already? If you have specialized tools or methods I’d like to know more specifically what you do to speed up this process.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Ian

    I can’t reveal all my secrets for free, however I do teach everything i do in my course coming out next month. For now though, scrapebox is a good place to start.

    Yup that works well.


    richard Reply:

    I think this is ok if you knew your backlinks urls. But how about if you don’t know, is there a way to find out or collect those backlinks urls?


    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Richard

    Yes you should know where most of your links are, if you do forums links, or blogs, however some you will not be able to find, but that is where you want to look for pingbacks if you are using wordpress

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for sharing the post! Very interesting indeed.

    One of the methods I have been using lately, is linking backlink to backlink, getting the 2nd tier link running such as forum profile and pointing to the main that way..your layer one link did get index at a much higher rate.


    Matt Carter Reply:

    Glad to hear that is working for you Jay!!

    All the best

    Hi Matt,

    Searching for the created links to index is indeed tedious. I would certainly be very interested in how you managed to index 80% of your links. Looking forward to Oct25th. Thanks.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    It is only tedious when you do it manually….I can’t give away all my secrets for free, but I reveal more in my new course on SEO

    Thanks again Matt, great info. I use indexing service myself it does quite well. Also I learned a lot from your Rapid Profit course. It did not take me long to figure out that quality back links with indexing is the key plane and simple.

    Thanks Matt for this great SEO tip. I was just wondering why all my backlinks were not identified by the bots (only 10 to 15%) and I thought it was due to accounts banned (IP issues). Now I understand and I have then to build backlinks to my backlinks…

    Interesting post.

    I read somewhere the other day that the best solution was to create
    a “sitemap” page on each website and give the URL for that page in
    comments you make on other webmasters’ blogs.

    Thanks again

    This makes a lot of sense. Most of us are satisfied with creating the links without every checking, if they are indexed.

    Are there any automated indexing or bookmarking tools that allow you to submit a whole list of URLs, or do you have to go one at a time?

    Is pinging the webpages with links sufficient?


    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Kurt

    Pinging doesn’t work, don’t bother with that, but yeah try scrapebox

    All the best

    Hey Matt,

    Thanks for that info. Interesting to hear your thoughts on RSS feed submissions not working now, I didn’t know this. When you say you’ve tested which kinds of backlinking work and which ones don’t, how do you do that exactly? Do you start up a site and only throw one kind of back links towards it (such as just rss feed submissions) and wait to see if it moves up? I’d be interested to learn that part!

    Thanks so much,

    Great post Matt

    Backlinks… Backlinks…. Backlinks…
    These are important, but people make mistakes by spamming google with links that end the end have more bad results than good.

    Quality over quantity is what I am saying…

    Also it would be better to have a kind of site in which the niche you are in is your favorite or at the least at your liking. This way you are aware of the niche and you have lots of things to write.

  20. September 21, 2011 at 12:17 pm | Permalink

    Wow what a fantastic piece of info, this is come just as I’m trying to work out my own backlinking strategies. I submit to so many directories, social bookmarking sites etc but when I use webmaster tools to see how many backlinks I have to my site, it doesn’t show sny of them so I really don’t have a clue about how many I have and where they come from!

  21. September 21, 2011 at 12:18 pm | Permalink

    Will be waiting for this new one Matt. I’m doing SEO for people from the US and it will be great to have more knowledge in this field as these is a constantly changing world. Your SEO strategies now might not be a good one in the next few months or year.

    Hi Matt,

    It has been long time since I wrote anything here. I think your new product will be good. I don`t know what`s happened, but when I first time built my small website and added software reviews it went quite nice and even with really little traffic it converted for me well. Now, it`s ZERO traffic, which means Zero sales. No idea what`s happened and I have no idea what to do. I don`t work a lo on that website either but it doesn`t mean it would traffic go to nothing. I used service like Fiverr to get backlinks. Beware of people there, even with 99% positive feedback and promise. I received a report from “seller” showed that I have 200 backlinks. After I checked I found that instead of promised high rank websites, they were on some shady forums and even porn sites. Who knows, maybe this killed my traffic. I do not believe in any “auto-backlink” software. It spread scams with the same messages and fake URLS and emails. I think it is better to take some time and do manually.

  23. September 21, 2011 at 12:22 pm | Permalink

    Wow Matt,
    You nailed it with this idea. Making sure that your backlinks get indexed seems like such an easy thing to do but I am sure that way too many people overlook it in their quest to build links. It just makes a lot of sense when you think about it. As you like to say, work smarter not harder. Thanks for this excellent tip.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Yeah it is amazing at how many pay little to no attention to indexing, but it helps so much

    So, is it fair to say that outsourcing SEO link-building to folks in the Philippines is no longer a good strategy unless you also have a system in place to verify which links are being indexed? I thought that getting all those links for $2 or $3 an hour was a great way to go, on the auto-pilot plan. .

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Craig

    I outsource all my links, but I do have my own workers and I ask them to record where the links are. So should do the same for any outsourcer you use, ask them for a link report

    Hi Matt,

    This has intrigued me. I normally throw all my links at and RSS submission sites through a software program and leave it at that. I confess however I don’t usually track their indexing because I try and go for sites with PR so they would be listed.

    I’d be interested in doing some testing with this for comparison. I certainly am interested in being organized in this area If you want any testers or testimonies I’d be interested.


    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Ray

    Yeah it would be a good idea to track your indexing, and again scrapebox makes that easy


  27. September 21, 2011 at 12:48 pm | Permalink

    Hi Matt
    I check my backlinks now 7 then with Yahoo Site Explorer (still working) and I’m finding a lot of “greyed out” links. Is this what you mean when you say they’re not indexed? (Please excuse the dumb question)


    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Wendy

    No that is not a dumb question at all. So by indexed I mean if you search for that exact URL in Google does Google have a listing for it. So take a URL that has your link on it and paste the URL in the search box and see if Google has a result, if they do, and it is that exact URL, then it has been indexed, and your link has been found by Google also. Also you can use a tool like scrapebox to do this on a bulk scale!



  28. September 21, 2011 at 12:56 pm | Permalink

    I think this was an exceptional post.

    The one question I have lingering, and wondering if it’s a stupid one since no one else asked, is the “no follow” question. I’ve been told that you need a balance of “do follow” and “no follow” or it looks unnatural and suspicious. Can you share if you only track “do follow”? Would a “no follow” ever show up in a link search with Google or Yahoo! and be track able?

    Look forward to your training!



    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Mark

    I wouldn’t get too worried about the balance of no follow and do follow, I used to try and get 10% no follow, but now I just build links and it happens naturally, but even if it doesn’t it doesn’t haven’t a negative effect from sites I’ve tested.

    Hi Matt,

    I have RPF, and RRW from you. RPF has taught me a lot in a short amount of time as a newbie. I have scrapebox, and use it to filter spy links from competitors, and filter indexed links only by page rank. Does this mean that those links I get are likely to be indexed? Is pinging through pingomatic or RSS bot as mentioned in rpf out and old school?

    Hey JP

    If you are getting links on high PR pages, the yes these will be indexed by Google and you don’t haev to worry about getting these indexed.

    I guess its not so much that pinging and RSS don’t work as they do to a degree, but I have just moved onto more sophisticated methods whcih allow me to get higher indexing, now over 80%.

    The key is to first know what your indexing % is, and scrapebox is a fast way to do bult checks

    Thanks for this. I hadn’t even worried about this. I guess I better get to work on links.

    Hi Matt,

    Greetings from sunny South Africa, so much to learn- so little time,
    I finally saw some visitors but no sales yet so assuming that all is not 100% set-up correctly. Back linking is still in the “baby shoes” stage but I will get there.

    Thanks for the information you provide and even the feedback from the members, I pick-up a lot off information from your blog and always look forward to your next post.
    Today will be my back-linking check day!!

    Matt is the best, I never go wrong with what he says or sells. I’m a life long full time follower! Keep it up Matt you’re putting all the others to shame. Good, honest, free information is always what I’ve grown to like so much about this blog. Thumbs Up

    Thanks for another brilliant article and you are right about the quality is better than the quantity, just one link from a high PR page has more value than 100 or 1000 links from PR 0 or even non-indexed pages.

    The other important point here is that just because a page is indexed by Google does not mean that it can be found in a search – has Google cross referenced and catalogued the page so it is searchable?

    Thanks again Matt. You’ve just confirmed something I’ve been thinking for a while and need to action on. Some say Just build links and let Google find the links the natural way…..but I agree with you on this one.

    Thanks for the post

    Hey Matt.

    As usual quality content that can be used. Most people would have taken info like this, created a pdf and a couple of videos and sold it as a wso on WF for $7. Here we get it for free. (just making a point)
    Backlinking is the bane of my IMing, although I don’t build sites like I used to, I use a service now. Bit like mowing the lawns. I pay a guy to do the job.

    Hi Matt,
    I’m in desperate need of your help in getting my website on top of googles first page under various search phrases.

    Do you offer a service where you could do the SEO and backlinks for me, and what costs are involved.

    Warm regards,

    Hi again Matt,

    In regards to my previous message, I also have another website which I need to get on top of google’s first page.

    Backlinking is one of my pet hates and SEO is difficult for most newbies to get their head’s around so I too will be looking forward to the release of your new product next month.

    Hi Matt,

    I will be ready for your new Seo Product on October 25th. As far as I am concerned, your recommendations are all I look at these days.

    I have deleted all the other “Seo Experts” emails I was receiving because you are the only one that makes sense to me.

    Also because I ‘actually make money with your advice”.

    Thanks Heaps!

    Hi Matt,
    Ok now I’m reallllly confused!

    If I use an article submission tool for example and say it returns 10 urls where my article has been accepted, if I go to that url (copy & paste in the address bar) does that mean it has been indexed as it is within the search engine or am I missing something?


    ps how do I create a profile picture???
