Backlinks

Backlinks is a plugin which is basically copies the google backlink functionality. The reason I started it was because after a plugin problem where I stopped receiving trackbacks in some popular posts, I couldn’t see who had linked to me unless I did a manual search. That annoyed me to no end.

Plus, because a substancial amount of people still use Blospot which stubbornly refuses to implement trackbacks, you do not see the full number of pages linking to you.

Thus Backlinks was born. At the moment is at a very basic version and I plan to add some more nice features. You use it by simply adding its tag to your templates (see the readme file).

Where to get it.

As always, you can get the latest stable version at the Plugin Codex or simply grab the development version.

    Great Idea!
    Works perfect, caching would be really nice because on heavy Blogs it puts load on the Server.
    Any chance for this?
    Thanks!

    Certainly but I'm not very knowledgeable with php or simplepie so I learn as I go. If you know how to achieve it, feel free to let me know 😉

    why

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/db0 db0

      It looks as if the simplepie cache location is not writable. Can you check if the backlinks/cache directory is 755?

  • http://www.ibooke.net YiPing

    ies,i check it.but the error is here.
    i use the php code from backlinks.com,not the plugin.
    and thank you the reply.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/db0 db0

      Er what? If you're not using my plugin how am I supposed to help you?

  • http://www.intensedebate.com/people/altrd Bong

    I mistook this with another existing WordPress plugin with the same plugin name. I'm just not sure if it predates yours.

    Do I need to set the permissions differently? Is that safe hacker attack wise?

    Thanks for any suggestions to this newbie!

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/db0 db0

      The cache directory should be writable by the owner of the site. This is generally safe.

      You're added the php call to your template? Have you made them visible even if no backlinks are available for the page?

    The best way to increase PR is:

    1. Do best of the optimization (Proper meta tags, XML sitemap, Robots.txt, add your site to Google Webmasters, Google Analytics & like wise)
    2. Ping your site at the best Pinging sites
    3. Make high PR & thematic back links.
    4. Do Social media submissions in the best of the social media bookmarking sites like Stumble upon, Digg, Delicious, Faves, Jumptags etc.
    5. Update your site/blog regularly so that Search Engine always find new content on the site.

    Believe me, check out my Cricket Blog. I started it on May 8th 2009 & I checked the PR of it yesterday (June 24 2009), the PR shooted upto 1. Previously it was NA.

      Erghm, PR 1 is the lowest you can have. So what happened is pretty natural and it means that Google acknowledged your existence. 😉

  • fernando

    Hello,

    I love your plugin, but I don't know what happen, it makes an conflit with my tabs menu.
    It makes all the tabs open.
    Please see an example in this site.
    http://oticaouoptica.com.br/
    The tabs, where supposed to be one behind the other and not bellow.
    I had the same problem with another plugin, and then I just have to DEACTIVATE the option:
    "Push scripts to footer of page instead of header"
    And then it worked perfectly.
    Do you have any Idea how to help me?

    Thank's a lot, I hope you help.
    best regards from Brazil

    • fernando

      Please, I still waiting for your answer.

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/db0 db0

        I've answered already

        • Fernando

          Oh, yes, sorry, I asked again up there. Please help!

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/db0 db0

    It seems fine to me Fernando. Try to select a different effect on the options and/or to have them start as visible.

    • fernando

      Hey! Thank's for your attention, I'm glad you answer.
      Yes, your plugin is working great, but it makes any conflit with my "tabs menu", did you see that it's all Open instead of hidded the tabs?
      I happens when I activete your plugin.
      I tried to choose a diferent effect, but nothing different happens.
      Is there anything I could do? I really want to use your plugin, but I can't because of this issue.
      Thank's a lot!
      Fernando

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/db0 db0

        You mean the ones below Backlinks? This looks to me as if there's a conflict between scriptaculous (which is what I'm using) and the javascript you use for your tabs. Unfortunately I can't help with that. Sorry.

    Hi

    I was thinking… won't posting your backlinks on your blog post page cause a reciprocal-link-exchange like scenario.
    Google doesn't like reciprocal links???

    I would really like to know your thoughts on this.

    Regards,

    I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but if you're a SEO Consultant and you can't even get your own PR above 3 then you're in the wrong line of business.

    Unfortunately I can't really help you as I'm not an expert on this. Google around and I'm certain you'll find some articles
