    • About MeAbout Me I was born in 1988 in, a small country town of Gunnedah, the Koala Capital of the World, Australia. My name is Michael Doring.I stayed in Gunnedah for 14 years, the first 12 were like any normal Childs, and the next two weresimilar to the 1983 movie ‘The Outsiders’. I dealt drugs, did drugs – committed other crimes, andran-with the wrong crowd. In that time, I was held hostage at knifepoint, beaten a dozen times, andmany other dark things happened - my Aunty passed away, my Dad had a massive heart-attack, andmy Mum got cancer.Leap forward to me at 15, I got away from the wrong crowd, and started getting 100% on most ofmy exams, I guess going to school helped. I eventually had a nervous breakdown, and wascommitted at the young age of 15 into a Mental Health Institution, for a month, and on medicationfor a year.In 2004, I then travelled to Sydney, and lived with my older brother Geoff. I excelled at school for thenext three years. The majority of classes were Computer-based, and that set the foundation for myfuture online success.In 2005, I meet my partner, currently of 7 years now, Joyce. I planned to join the SAS, or CommandoUnit 4RAR, in the Australian Army, but instead I ended up working for Michelle Patisserie, in thefactory, making Pies.In Jan 2008, the company, Datacom, employed me. I worked on several contracts. I was a TechnicalSupport Specialist for BigPond (Call Centre), one of the biggest Internet Service Providers inAustralia. At Datacom, I also had a stint as a Team Leader for the ‘Department of the Environment,Water, Heritage and the Arts’ Government information line.Whilst at Datacom, I created several applications that were used by over 300 people, such as my CallNotes application, and a CRM. In addition, I came up with over two dozen innovative initiatives, andwon three Innovation Awards. My actions in my Technical Support Specialist position led to Datacomcreating a new job role, Innovation Specialist, and they transferred me into that position.I left Datacom around August 2010, and went to work for another computer company called Gizmo,and that ended in 2011 in the middle of February due to downsizing. I was made redundant, andthus, in 2011 February I became a fulltime Internet Marketer.How did I get involved in Internet Marketing?My life as an Internet Entrepreneur started in Balmain, Sydney on New Year’s Eve 2009. I spent thenight reigning in the New Year with, my two best mates, Marcel and Rob. Marcel, who was alreadyparticipating in Internet Marketing - gave me the idea to create a website for my Sports BettingApplication. Because earlier, in 2009, I came up with an idea to create an Uber Sports BettingApplication, I like sports, and gambling, so it made sense. I spent months researching - I had a 200page-planning document by the end, and 20 Gigabytes of companion data.The must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach.www.michaeldoring.com Page 7 of 77
    • About MeTherefore, when New Years Day arrived, January 1st 2010, I purchased my first website related toInternet Marketing, it failed – but it was my first taste, and set in motion my passion for makingmoney online.I received my first payment related to Internet Marketing on 19/07/2010, it took 7 months, but Imade $128.15 that month. However, real success struck around January 2011, I started having lotsof $100, and even $300 days. I now work from home as fulltime Internet Entrepreneur.I now have my own, SEO business, Website Design business, numerous affiliate websites, and haveeven started creating software, and products.In short, I have had a life full of ups and downs, but right now – I am rich, working from home, andloving what I do.The must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach.www.michaeldoring.com Page 8 of 77
    • IntroductionIntroductionFirstly, thanks for helping with my success – buying this eBook. Therefore, since you have helped mewith my success, it is only fair I help you. I hope this eBook repays my debt to you.In addition, if you need help with anything, feel free to PM me on the Warrior Forum(http://www.warriorforum.com/members/michaeldoring.html), or email me atemail@michaeldoring.com.I apologize in advance if my writing is unorthodox, and contains grammatical errors – I still have mytraining wheels on when it comes to writing. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy this backlink findingresource.Important: When creating backlinks be careful not to break the Google Webmaster Guidelines:http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=35769, I encourage WhiteHat link building only.Advice: When using many of the backlink finding methods listed, it is best to be running a browserplug-in that can detect no-follow links, PR, etc. Such as:  SearchStatus - http://www.quirk.biz/searchstatus/; (Only works with Firefox)  SEO Quake - http://www.seoquake.com/ (Should work with Safari, Chrome and Firefox)I have fluffed around enough, and I will start discussing, backlinks on the next page – so turnover thepage, and I will start the Backlink Hunting escapades.The must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach.www.michaeldoring.com Page 9 of 77
    • What are Backlinks?What are backlinks?‘Backlinks are incoming links to a website’ - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backlink for moredetails.What is the significance of backlinks?Google’s original name for its search engine was BackRub, ‘because the system checked backlinks toestimate the importance of a site’ 1 1The search results displayed in Google are ‘based on a… *ranking system called+… PageRank’The Google Search algorithm (PageRank) has been reported to have ‘over 200 different indicators’ 1used to position websites in its index. The biggest factor contributing to a websites position inGoogle’s index is purported to be the backlinks factor, which derives from the ‘analyses of human-generated links’.1A websites PageRank is apparently the ‘recursive score based on the weighted sum of the PageRankof the pages linking to them’1, it is based on the notion of popularity and relativity.The popularity factor is determined by how many links you get and from whom. Relativity howeveris about how people link to your site. For example: if a lot of people link to your site with the linktext (anchor text) ‘best search engine’ then Google considers your webpage highly relevant to a usersearching for ‘best search engine’, and is likely to place you towards the top of the SERPs (SearchEngine Results Pages). Obviously, other known and unknown, factors such as webpage content arein the mix (the algorithm), to produce the most relevant results, and weed out spammers.So utilize backlinks, to make your website more visible in search engines, so you get more traffic.Through this increased visibility comes the chance of enormous financial gain, and with a bit of luckit leads to a millionaire lifestyle.In summary, Google became successful because of its innovative way to use backlinks to improvesearch results, and thus backlinks are very important, so read on to discover how to find backlinkopportunities – and just maybe these ideas will help with your success. 1.

    • Backlink Finding Method 4: Forum Profile Username Trick, or any profile username for that matterBacklink Finding Method 4Forum Profile Username Trick, or any profile username for thatmatterWhat is a forum?If you have to ask, you are in trouble, but Wikipedia is great for those troublesome huh moments, sosee http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_forum for answers.What are forum profiles?When you register on a forum, you get your own forum profile (membership page). This forumprofile is almost like your own mini-blog, it is a web page about you. This forum profile tends to beaccessible by the wider forum and internet community.Why do Internet Marketers care about forum profiles? It is another place to put a backlink.Some interesting comments about spam profiles from Google Webmaster Central Blog, spammers‘...will create accounts and fill their profiles with gibberish... theyll add a sneaky link... Welcome tothe world of spam profiles...Some fake profiles are obvious...but weve noticed an increase in savvierspammers that try to use real names and realistic data to sneak in their bad links... This isnt an easyproblem to solve...Google is constantly under attack by spammers trying to create fake accounts andgenerate spam profiles on our sites, and despite all of our efforts some have managed to slipthrough...’ these comments are from Spam2.0: Fake user accounts and spam profiles (2009, June 26th).

    • Backlink Finding Method 4: Forum Profile Username Trick, or any profile username for that matterNow to the method of finding backlink opportunities by using a profile username:Step 1: Use the following formula in google: niche/category forum +member list e.g. softwareforum +member listStep 2: The vast majority of the results should be forum member listsStep 3: Open some of the sites in the search resultsStep 4: Start scanning through the forum usernames for spammy-looking users, and open theirprofile page by clicking on their username, profile spam is so bad that you tend to find a candidateon the first go.Tip: spammy users tend to have few or no posts, and contain numbers in the username.Note, sometimes you get errors like “Sorry! The administrator has disabled the list of members.” Ifthat happens you can just view forum threads individually to harvest username candidates, or skipthat forum all together.Step 5: Look at the users profile signature, homepage details, etc for outbound links that are do-follow.Reminder: If you want to check do-follow status of a link, enable one of the plug-ins mentioned inthe introduction such as SEO Quake.Step 6: Now if the profile has an outbound do-follow link generated by the user, then copy the URLand paste it into some kind of tracking document like notepad, excel.The must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach.www.michaeldoring.com Page 18 of 77
    • Backlink Finding Method 4: Forum Profile Username Trick, or any profile username for that matterStep 7: Almost the same condition as step six needs to be true, (If the profile has an outbound linkgenerated by the user, regardless of nofollow or dofollow) then copy the profile username.Step 8: Paste the profile username into Google, Bing or Yahoo with quotes (or without).Tip: I have noticed Google tends to return vastly more results, than its competitors do, whensearching by profile usernames.Tip: In some instances profile pages may not be returned, this depends on the username queried, soyou can try improving the query by adding +profile e.g. bob442 +profileLastly, Step 9: Open all links listed in the search results, the majority should be profile pages ondifferent forums, many allowing backlinks. Copy the URL of any backlink opportunity you might wishto pursue into some kind of tracking sheet.Warning: I do not condone web-spam, or the creation of spam profiles. This information is just forentertainment purposes only. I know I am a hypocrite for showing you how to find them, well that ishow I like-it, the hypocrites have the best tea parties anyway.However, seriously, you can use this information for good, when you create outbound linksremember to actually provide value to the forum, contribute, answer problems, do it in a white-hatway.The must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach.www.michaeldoring.com Page 19 of 77
    • Backlink Finding Method 5: Outsourcing and FreelancersBacklink Finding Method 5Outsourcing and FreelancersOutsourcing refers to contracting work out to a third party service, such as http://www.odesk.com,http://www.freelancer.com/, http://www.fiverr.com/ .How can outsourcing help with backlinks?It can help in a number of ways, such as: 1. You can hire certain individuals from places like oDesk who know how to find backlinks, and if they don’t - train them how to find backlink opportunities. 2. You can hire people to build backlinks for you. 3. You can message various backlink builders (freelancers), and ask to buy their personal lists of backlinks. You can normally get them for very cheap and sometimes even free. 4. Certain websites allow users to sell backlink packets, such as http://www.freelancer.com/marketplace/, see screenshot below for example:Outsourcing to freelancers can be very cheap - I have never used http://www.freelancer.com/ orhttp://www.fiverr.com/ and cannot vouch for them personally, but I hear good things.I use http://www.odesk.com for my outsourcing needs.

    • Backlink Finding Method 7: Websites that allow user-generated backlinks have common search signals (footprints)Backlink Finding Method 7Websites that allow user-generated backlinks have common searchsignals (footprints)Webpages that allow placement of user-generated backlinks have a tendency to have commonsearch signals (footprints). For example, text on the webpage like “Leave a reply”, “this site useskeywordluv”, or even in the URL like “add-your-site”.Combining these search signals into queries, and searching Google can help uncover millions of do-follow backlinks.Millions of query variations exist to find backlink opportunities, some examples are: "powered by wordpress" + "Name (required)" + "Leave a reply" +” Says:" + “Response” + "This site uses KeywordLuv" inurl:aspx -intitle:blogengine -"closed" -"you must be logged in" -"please login to leave" + "Powered by BlogEngine.NET 1.4.5.0" ("add comment" OR "post a comment" OR "leave a comment" OR "add a comment") “About the Author:” + "Resource box" -intitle:"about the author" AND -intitle:resource AND -allinurl:resourcebox AND -inurl:author “this site uses commentluv” “keyword phrase” inurl:blog site:.edu "powered by phpbb" intitle:profile intitle:add+url “computers” inurl:add.cgi “Do Follow - CommentLuv Enabled” intitle:submit+url “keyword phrase” allinurl:add+your+site “Powered by BlogEngine”Do you want more resources to help with creating search queries like the above?

For example, many installations of wordpress have “powered bywordpress” in the footer.What does all this “powered by wordpress”, “powered by vBulletin”, etc mean?It means finding websites that use a particular Powered by system is easy. Just type “powered by[insert type]” into Google and you will get a big list of websites, predominately powered bywhatever you replaced [insert type] with.How does Powered by searches benefit your backlink finding efforts?Certain systems allow for prolific placement of do-follow backlinks, whereas other systems arestricter. Example, Wordpress blogs implement no-follow for all comment links by default, whereasmost versions of BlogEngine.NET have do-follow turned on by default.So searching for "Powered by BlogEngine" should unearth tonnes of do-follow link building options,whereas “powered by wordpress” would return far fewer.Therefore, in summary, “powered by...” searches are a useful link-finding method to have in yourarsenal.A list of a few powered by systems: powered by wordpress powered by yabb powered by BlogEngine powered by ip.board powered by Blogsmith powered by invision power board powered by Typepad powered by e-blah powered by scoop powered by xmb powered by PHPbb powered by fudforum powered by vBulletin powered by fluxbb powered by SMF powered by forum software minibb powered by Simple Machines powered by phorum powered by punBB powered by quicksilver forums powered by Tagbox powered by seo-board powered by DRBGuestbook powered by ubb.threads powered by bbPressDo you want more powered by search phrases like the above?

Now most of our users have gone elsewhere, like to Bing, and we are all out of a job, thank you for using link harvesting tools...”Ok, it might not have been eloquent to use a fictional rant to emphasis my point, but I doubt Googlewants anyone to use link-harvesting tools. So do so out at your own peril, as always this informationis just for entertainment purposes only. However, I personally doubt they can know/penalize you forusing link harvester tools.

    • Backlink Finding Method 8: Link Harvesting Tools...such as: ScrapeboxWhat is Scrapebox?http://www.scrapebox.com/Scrapebox is the most popular backlink harvesting application around, and for a good reason – it isextremely helpful when it comes to finding backlink opportunities.A discount on Scrapebox is available at http://www.scrapebox.com/cheapskate. Warning: Scrapebox is a powerful tool, be careful not to overdo it, and grow your links to fast, as it may throw up red flags. I understand the counter-argument, the one everyone bellows, which is “if building links too fast could cause any trouble with Google, then I could throw up thousands of links overnight to a competitor, and get him banned from Google, or thrown-out of the top 10”. A counter-argument of mine: if I were on the Google web-spam team, I could write an algorithm as follows: I would have all the top 100 (existing) results immune from damage from a sudden, and excessive, amount of links. However if an unknown, or site not in the top 100, tried to create a massive amount of links in one go, I would flag them as suspicious, and reduce the value of those links for a time, and have follow-up algorithms watch-the site for other spam-signals, like are all those links from blog comments, or forum profiles. Anyway, my point is that algorithmically a lot can be done, be careful in all that you do, as one day Google might get clever, and create a spam-proof algorithm, or at least more-resistant to link-spam. Further supporting evidence of my viewpoint, is the video Can I flag spammy links to my site that I didnt create? By Matt Cutts that states ‘...we removed the language that it’s impossible for a competitor to hurt another competitor and replaced it with language along the lines of its very hard...whenever we write an algorithm for example that looks at incoming links we do think about, ok, what if a competitor tried to hurt someone else, and we try to put in code to make sure that is not easy to do’The must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach.www.michaeldoring.com Page 26 of 77

    • Bonus Info: My nonsensical rant about Forum Profile Backlinks  The vast majority of forum profiles, and threads, have a Google Page Rank of zero.  Link juice on a web page is-shared amongst all do-follow links. Therefore, more links on a web page means greater dilution of page juice that flows to each outbound link. In short, avoid getting links from web pages that already have a truckload of do-follows - it is not worth it.  Signature based links are primarily self-promoting, and therefore not editorial (merit-based). My prediction, Google will create an algorithm to detect signature- based links. Hell, I am a programmer and could probably write an algorithm given the time and resources. Ok, step away from the shotgun, I was only kidding, I promise not to write an algorithm like-that, but if I create my own search engine one day, all bets are off.  Forum profile links tend to have a high-rate of death because moderators find them eventually, or turn-on “nofollow”, etc, so they are not the best for sustainability.  When someone gets popular, it screws up naming conventions, when I first started Internet Marketing, and for a year after that, I mistakenly walked around saying “Angela Links”, “Angela Backlinks”... etc, as if she personally owned every site, she listed in her PDFs, my mistake, as I wrongly used it as a catch all phrase for profile backlinking. Furthermore, it turns out copyright does not protect ideas, only their expression, well as far as I know (but as always, I am not a lawyer, so seek legal advice from a lawyer if needed). Therefore, Angela might own the copyright to her body of work (PDFs), but only the expression, she would not own the rights to the third-party domain names she points out, or the idea of profile Backlinking for that matter. Not that she ever said she did, I am just using her branding of Angela Backlinks as an example of a naming convention that confused me at the start. Anyway, so eventually I got to the SIM stage (successful internet marketer) and I learnt about naming conventions, and a revelation was revealed to me, “it’s called Profile Backlinking”... aka “Spam profiles”... come to think of it maybe SIM is actually that game, SIM City... who knows anymore... the point... not sure... just ranting... Conclusion: I have ranted, and raved, and just listed a bunch of poorly related dot-points, and well, all I have to say for a conclusion is tough luck, make up your own-mind, most successful internet marketers just research, and then go with whatever gut-feeling they have. So take my dot-point research, do your own, and get out there and make up your own mind, to create profile backlinks or not is the question, so answer it already. Finally, at the very start, I personally dabbled, but I soon read the Google Webmaster Guidelines and now lean towards all-white-hat strategies. So I would encourage making the web a better place, create great content, use link bait tactics, and focus on long-term link-building strategies that Google will love 200 years from now, when your great, great, great grand-kids inherit your website.The must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach.www.michaeldoring.com Page 36 of 77

Therel=”nofollow” attribute warns search engines that the website, cannot, or does not, vouch for a link.Nofollow links do not provide any real SEO value, and thus Wordpress and many other blog platforms, and websites, now use rel=”nofollow” to reduce linkspam from user-generated content like profiles, forum posts and comments.Interesting reads: http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/quick-comment-on-nofollow/ and http://codex.wordpress.org/NofollowDofollow plug-ins, what are they?Wordpress for example sets all outbound links from users, like comment links, to nofollow by default. Therefore, wordpress plug-ins like Dofollow havebeen created for webmasters to reverse the nofollow effect and makes links dofollow.Info on CommentLuv:Find info on it at http://comluv.com/ or http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/commentluv/CommentLuv is a plug-in that Wordpress webmasters can use to reward comment posters.

However, members can apparently have up to 10 of their latest posts displayed in a dropdown whenyou hover-over the heart symbol. In addition, members can pay to have a default URL used instead of the latest post URL, more details athttp://comluv.com/member/default-links/.How to Find CommentLuv enabled sites:Websites that have CommentLuv enabled should have a little CommentLuv banner image and sometimes say, “This site uses CommentLuv...” or “This siteuses KeywordLuv” in the comment writing section.To find Comment Luv enabled sites you can go-to: http://comluv.com/search-results/ and search.OR: Use search queries in Google like: "This site uses CommentLuv" -intitle:CommentLuv -inurl:CommentLuvThe must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach. www.michaeldoring.com Page 39 of 77

    • Bonus Info: What would I change knowing what I know now?Bonus InfoWhat would I change knowing what I know now?Preface: I answered this question on the Warrior Forum, and thought I would copy my answer into this eBook. The Warrior Forum post is located at http://www.warriorforum.com/main-internet-marketing-discussion-forum/387131-what-would-you-do-scenario.html#post3959452. I have duplicated my answer in this eBook because you, my readers, are awesome, thanks for buying thiseBook, and I hope you find my answer helpful. I wish someone told me much earlier some of the ideas below.Firstly, I could write 500 pages on what I have learnt, and what I would do different. I started out on my internet-marketing journey in Sydney, Balmain onNew Year’s Eve 2009. For months now, I had been planning design of a sports betting application, and had 20 GBs of research, and a 200-page planningdocument, but no website.However, that New Year’s Eve night, over few-to-many, a mate already pursing IM gave me an idea to create a website. So come January 1st 2010 I hadregistered my first domain name for internet marketing. It failed. However, a year later come February 2011, I finally started having the elusive $100 days,and even $300 days, so I quit work, and for 3 months now I have been a full-time IM, and still $100 days, and my online assets are growing.When I first started I was a perfectionist, I invested too much time into learning, and doing stupid things. So, now that you know the short version to my IMsuccess, what would I do different, lots, but the standout things I would change are:  Shed my dreaming (just-learn/talk) habits much earlier, and become a doer.  I knew the core concepts to start my IM a week-in, but my perfectionist side got the better of me, and I spent months learning theory and taking no action. If I could go back, I would keep in mind, the light-switch theory that goes something like ‘you don’t need to know everything about electricity to flick a light switch.’ I would take action much sooner.  I also would have gone part-time at work, and focused on IM. You should only go part-time, or quit work, if you have the financially stability to survive without a job, or on part-time wages.  I would have started a foot-in-the-door, affiliate site at the very start. As affiliate sites, that have some SEO, and/or lots of content, tend start earning you $30 a day before long, and when that hits $100, you can say goodbye to your day job, and swear your head-off at your previous ungrateful employer and tell him you quit.  I would program-my-mind to not be a perfectionist, and just do. If I find myself going down the path of perfectionism, I would say to myself just one-word, “versioning”, this word reminds me that I can always make it better later, version 2, 3, 4 can be the one that gives me that insane-crazy-The must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach. www.michaeldoring.com Page 60 of 77
    • Bonus Info: What would I change knowing what I know now? person-unrealistic-feeling of its perfect. P.S. I have never heard “versioning” used in this way before, it’s my own idea, and it truly works, try saying “versioning” to yourself as it’s a great word to steer you back to being a doer.  I would have invested in a whiteboard to start-with. I use to get overwhelmed every day, up until about a month ago when I purchased a white- board. I had so many websites, tasks, and ideas that every day I was waking up with a feeling of dread. Everything I had to do kept floating around in my brain, stressing me out. However, when I got that whiteboard, I put everything on it. For example, under headings I would put everything I had to do, such as for x website I put every task I have planned for that bad boy, I added my financial state to the whiteboard, a section for urgent tasks, etc.In summary, if I could go back in time knowing what I know now, I would change so much, but the core three things related to IM would be, 1. Get a whiteboard to remove the stress, 2. Stop just-learning - learn on the run, 3. Become a doer.The must have guide to Finding Backlinks – The Mammoth Approach. www.michaeldoring.com Page 61 of 77
