I am not going to respond to your question in a way that you might like, but I am going to respond in a manner that (if you take my advice seriously) can have a tremendous impact on your success online.

I have been watching your posts since you have joined this community and have noticed a recurring theme of you always wanting to know if you are going to get credit for a link or not, almost as if you are in a panic to not only get links, but to get them RIGHT NOW and a feeling that they MUST be links that are followed by Google.

If you are SERIOUS about wanting to build a successful online presence for your business STOP right now. Take a deep breath and relax. What you are doing is NOT going to help you or your business and may very likely hurt.

Think about it. You are running around a PUBLIC forum posting about wanting to find unnatural ways to build links to your website and even have each of the posts linked to your site? Do you maybe see a problem with that?

Step 1 - I have mentioned this before and I am going to mention it again. Go to the thread I suggested and take the time to actually LEARN about solid SEO practices. I am truly sorry, but there are no tricks or magic shortcuts. It takes time and it is not easy. It is simple, but not easy.

Step 2 - Listen to the pros that are making it happen, not to the fly by night folks that try to give you overnight spammy quick success answers. This is another thread that may help you if you truly take the time to read and STUDY what they are saying.

Step 3 - Change your focus to doing things for the benefit of your target audience. Everything you do has to come back to what is best for them. Do you have a Facebook page or blog offering free daily tips for your target audience? Are you making the best site you can for you visitors? (As an example, from a usability perspective, I can barely read the font of a page I followed in your signature.) The best SEO in the world will NOT create a successful business. It is just ONE piece of the picture.

Just my 2 cents....
