Track Backs

I was asked the other week about trackbacks on blogs and what I thought of the software available, I have done trackbacks and they give reciprocal links to your blog from another, the important part of this is to remember that on target posts are the way forward, I mean only use these on sites/blogs that are on the same subject as your own, now as for the software desktop and online, I got out my cash bought a couple of versions to try, firstly yes the ones I tried do work one of the online ones I had quite a lot of trouble with setting it up, (it is supposed to give one way links but this seems a little dark), the software takes a little time to find on topic posts and then adds the trackback request for you and tests to see if it has been accepted, my view not sure, there are some very good things out there I would rather spend my money.

Busy Busy Busy

I have been really busy this last month but I have still been testing, the SMARTS course has now concluded but there a still a couple of videos to go through, I watched the Millionaire Yacht from Andrew Fox where he had a couple of big earners telling what they do, Jeff Walker was interesting and although I enjoyed watching them I did not really learn much and would be gutted if I had paid for them, saying that it is always a good thing to try and learn something new even if you don’t. Update soon.
