How to Build Links with eBay

September 17th, 2008 posted by · 4 Comments

Building back links to your blog or website is what every webmaster tries to do. Not only does it bring you more traffic, but you also benefit from getting ranked higher in Google for your keywords.

eBay gives you the option to create a free blog on your account and you should use this to your full advantage.

  1. Sign up for an eBay account
  2. Create a blog on
  3. Post a new entry with your anchor text as the title and then link back to your website in the post’s content
  4. Make sure all links have the “dofollow” tag implemented and even make the text bold to stand out more
  5. Publish the blog
  6. You’re done!

The eBay blog site has a nice PR of 6. You’ll also be featured on the front page of eBay Blogs as soon as you post (for only a few minutes until your entry is bumped down).

Don’t spam using this method, as you’ll quickly have your account deleted. Write a new post once a week or so using different anchor text that would be useful to someone reading it. You’ll notice after a while that your site will rank considerably higher than others for your given keyword phrase.

Other eBay country websites, such as eBay Canada will pick up your blog and each site carries its own high PR score, so you’ll also benefit from those sites as well without doing anything extra.

    Nice tip. How do you make sure the link is do follow? Isn’t it dofollow to start with? What you mean by implemenet a dofollow tag.
    Please let me know about this.

    They are dofollow to start with, but to make sure, I always use this tag within the link:

    @chris – I don’t think you really need to add rel=”dofollow” tag in the anchor text. Just make sure that there it is not nofollow i.e not rel=”nofollow” if nofollow is not there then the normal link is always a dofollow link..

    I know, but I’m always a bit paranoid and like to make sure. lol
