  1. Hey Himanshu,

    Tried the photobucket one and it doesn’t record the address as a link. It’s just text which doesn’t redirect to your site. Is there a trick I’ve missed?
    I’ve tried adding it to the description and to my profile there.


  2. Great list.

    Can you make a list about directories too, the one we should submit our sites to, and the easiest one to accept sites.

    quick question though: if I put my link on each of these sites, how much will affect my DA and PR?

    thanks in advance.

    • Hey Andreea ,
      Sure I will try to make a post on Directories as well.
      We can’t predict how much effect will have on DA or PR but greater the Referring Domains greater are the chances of your Domain Authority to Increase.


  3. Tired all your links (my team)… most of them don’t give backlinks. Can you please show how you got backlinks from those sites which you listed? I think around 10 are successful I guess (my team did that).
