If you came to this post from the search engines you really should go back to the beginning of this blog and read all my posts along with looking at my $1,491.28 and $2,368.32 CashCrate check payment proof. If you want to learn how to make money online, this blog is the place where you will learn how.


It has been said that 80% of your time should be spent getting anchored links to your blog and 20% of your time creating content. If you want to get CashCrate referrals, you need your blog to show up in the search engines for as many of the keywords and keyword phrases you are targeting as possible and the way to do that is through anchored backlinks. In fact, anchored backlinks are the only way to make that happen.

You could spend a year pumping out the most awesome information and put it on the best looking blog ever created and if you don’t get any anchored links to your site, hardly anyone would ever find it. That’s the truth. If you want to make money with CashCrate and other surveys for money sites referral programs, you need blogs with tons of backlinks.

Getting Back Links Is Super Boring

Getting backlinks is the hardest and most boring thing you will ever do. Period. First of all, you need as many one way links as possible and not link exchanges. When you exchange links with another blog, all you are really doing is passing Google juice back and forth. You link to site A and site A links right back to you so Google views that as having less value. That kind of link exchange does have some value though, as long as the links are anchored correctly for the keywords you are targeting. There is value there and it is worth doing that kind of link even though it is not as good as a one way link.

One way incoming anchored backlinks are what you really want. If you want to exchange links with a site, it is always best to find out if some sort of 3 way link exchange can be done. This can of course only work if you have 3 or more blogs involved. A 3 way link exchange would look like this:

Site A links to Site B

Site B links to Site C

Site C links back to Site A

In that example, all the links are one way links. No links ever cross and so they carry more value. The more blogs you have, the easier it is to accomplish this sort of link exchange. That is another reason why anyone serious about making money online will have multiple blogs.

Besides link exchanges with friends and other sites, you need to go out and get your own back links. The business of getting survey referrals does not start and stop with your blog. There is a lot more work to be done and if you don’t do that work, you will fail. Again, this is why 99% of the people who try to make money online fail and give up. They are lazy and don’t want to put in the work.

1) You need to make at least one Squidoo lens. They are free and you can link back to your blog with a nice anchored link.

 2) If you have a real domain, you need to create a free Blogger blog which is about a related subject and link back to your main blog with an anchored link.

3) You need to write at least several articles with anchored back links in the author box and submit them to EzineArticles. These articles should always be original and written by you.

4) You should write a couple more articles and submit them to GoArticles with your anchored links in the author box.

5) Comment on other do-follow blogs using your anchor text as your name (see BlogCommentDemon 2 Review for a software that helps you find this type of blog).

6) You can create a HubPage about surveys and link back to your site from it.

7) You can create a Weebly  blog and link back to your main money blog with the anchor text of your choice.

These are just some of the things you can and should do to help support your main blog, get supporting anchored back links coming in, and have a chance at building up your site and getting it to show up on Google’s first page for the keyword terms you choose. Having a blog is a lot of work if you want it to produce for you. Making survey referrals and learning how to make Internet money is a long term process. As they say, it is a marathon and not a sprint.

Other Link Building Methods

In addition to the methods listed above, there are also hundreds of directories where you can submit your blog and get an anchored backlink as well as forums where you can have a backlink in your signature. The number of article directories (I mentioned two of the best) is also in the hundreds and you can spend countless hours writing articles and submitting them. You can get backlinks by submitting your blog to dozens of social bookmarking sites such as Mister Wong and Reddit. You can also join services like Linkvana and Backlink Solutions (which are both very expensive) that will help you increase your anchored links.

If you don’t have the time to do all this manually, you can buy software that will save you hundreds of hours. There is directory submitting software and something called Bookmarking Demon which can be used to automate backlinks from the social bookmarking sites. 

All in all, there are tons of ways you can get backlinks on your own and through friends. As you can see, it is something you can literally spend hundreds of hours doing. There is no end to the amount of work you can do to promote your blog and get anchored backlinks which will help propel your blog to the top of Google. The more work you do on your blogs, the better your chances are of seeing progress in getting search engine traffic and getting those coveted CashCrate referrals.
