UPDATE (5/2/09): The script originally referenced in this post is no longer available (the author, LinkyMe, mysteriously disappeared – along with his site).
If you read my previous post about link saturation, unindexed referrers, and third-party sitemaps (Don’t Waste Backlinks – Tell Googlebot About Unindexed Referrers…) then you probably had either one of the following three reactions:
- What’s a Googlebot?
- I know what you’re saying but have no clue how to do it
- Thanks for the tip; I’m gonna do it right now
If you don’t know/care about getting your site indexed better, I can’t help you. For the rest of you, I can help you. Or rather, I’ll point you to someone who has made a tool that does exactly what I’m talking about for all future visitors to your site.
This Link Saturation Script generates the code for you – all ready for you to put on your site after you plug in the parameters. Go to http://linkyme.com/link-saturation-script/ and put in the names of any sites you don’t want to be counted as referrers (like your own site), and then put in your keywords. Click “Get Pink Hack Code”.
The next screen will provide you with the code. Copy and paste the code somewhere on your site, i.e. in your single.php or your site’s template file so that it works on every page of your site.
Easy as pie. Be sure to thank the guy who made this helpful ping script (who are you anyway??), and enjoy the benefits.
(Keep in mind this script will only benefit you going forward; unindexed referrers sitting in your servers logs still will need to be indexed and generating a “third-party sitemap” as described in the previous post is the way to do it.)
