backlink funnelHere is an interesting concept that I came across the other day. I am not sure how well it will work, but it is worth a shot. The concept is to use a backlink funnel in order to help increase your page rank (not just your rankings on the search engine, but also your Google Page Rank). Since I don’t see how it could hurt to try this tactic, I decided to give it a shot. Here’s how it works.

 

Backlinks to Your Website

Backlinks are important. Ideally your site would be so amazing that people all over the web are talking about it. This would create thousands, if not millions, of natural organic backlinks. Each one of these links is like a little vote for your website; the more votes the higher your Page Rank (by the way, check your Page Rank by following the link).

Since it would take hours upon hours to get out there and spread your links all over the place, there are ways to help boost what you are doing. That is how a backlink funnel works.

You see, not all backlinks are created equal. If you can get a backlink for a PR6 website, it will be far more valuable than a backlink from a PR0 website. But PR6 is hard to come by, and they don’t just hand out backlinks for free. So you have to build it yourself.

 

Building Your Backlink Funnel

You first have to choose a website that has Dofollow backlinks. I picked Behance because it is easy to set up, easy to use, and there isn’t a whole lot of work to put into it.

Take a few minutes to fill out your profile, and make sure you include a link to your website. Upload a few pieces of your “work” to your profile, otherwise you might get moderated. I build furniture, jewelry, and other wooden doodads on the side, so I just uploaded some of my work.

AppreciateThen start browsing. If you see something cool, click “I appreciate this.” If you want to leave kudos, then leave a comment. If you like something someone is showing, then hit “follow this user.” The point is that every time you like, follow, or comment, a little link is being formed. That link goes back to your profile page, and your profile page goes to your personal website.

You click a bunch of likes, follows, and comments, and build your backlink funnel. This funnel helps build the PR of your profile page, and ultimately that page builds the PR of your personal website.

Does it Work?

Now that is all to say it may not work. I have only had my funnel built for a week or so, and I’m constantly clicking on things I like and leaving encouraging comments. I have heard that PR is only updated every three months, so I may not see anything come of this for 3, 6 or even 12 months. But as I mentioned before: can it actually hurt? I’m not buying junk backlinks, and I’m actually putting in the work to build this funnel. I suppose only time will tell.
