This week I posted a myspace.com page (www.myspace.com/tonythetiger007). I have been told that backlinks are extremely important for search engine placement. I would like to include a backlink in my myspace.com page in place of the textual reference. How do I do so.
Tony, more advice:
Considering you are actually somewhat of a celebrity and awarded artist, you should attempt to create a wikipedia page, all about 'you'. I would call it your real name 'antonio vernon'. Make it lengthy. A complete bio - at the bottom, have a link back to you homepage. Do not simply duplicate it. This will greatly help, because eventually that page will gain high PR with Google, as do most wikipedia pages. You may find the wikipedia page to be a great source of traffic, and it is likely it will outrank your homepage anyway.It will pay off, 10x as much as a myspace page.
If there are other 'celebrity' or martial arts sites u can be celebrated on - do it - there are far more valuable to your campaign than blogs or myspace/nexopia pages. trust me. this is because their host domain is not only high pr, but could be, in some cases, be relevant (martial arts).
This might be a stupid question, but what's a backlink?
a backlink is a link posted somewhere on the web to your website (posted preferbaly on a popular website, no warez or hacking sites tho)
