Anyone have a favourite way of indexing their backlinks?. Personally, I like to create xml files, place them on a random blog and syndicate them to a couple of hundred aggregators. Any better ideas?
It dosen't really matter what site you use. Any page will do once it can be read by aggregators. I doubt it's against any of Google's terms and conditions ( I could be wrong) because all you are doing is getting your existing links read and indexed. What Google does with them after that is down to Google.That's an interesting technique. Do you have random satellite blogs which you post you XML files on? Is Google OK with this?
It might be useful if some sites are ignored by Googlebot. Such as a ping, or if you want quick results, or if the next PageRank update is coming.I wouldn't bother with indexing backlinks as it may backfire in the long term. It's better if google finds your backlinks slowly and naturally as other pages with your links are crawled. Otherwise expect to get slapped by the next penguin update.
