Adsense Revenue Sharing Web 2.0 Sites

Scroll down for list of revenue sharing sites

Web 2.0 is one of those elusive terms that there seems to be no definitive definition for. Commonly thought of a second generation version of the web, really it is based on the same platform as “Web 1.0” with a few new tricks to it. The overall consensus seems to be a website that allows the visitor to become part of or modify the content of the site.

Using that definition then blogs and forums should all be considered web 2.0, and in many circles this is considered true. However there are some new categories of sites out there that seem to define Web 2.0 a little better. Some of these sites include Wikis, Social Networking sites, and adsense revenue sharing sites that allow the user to create their own content like Squidoo, Hubpages, Qassia (now called Qondio), and even Twitter. For the sake of this page on link building, these are the types of site I will be focusing on. At the bottom of this article you will find a list of some of the sites I have found most useful.

So, why are they useful? Very specifically, you have control over how this website links to your site, what the topic of the page that links to yours is about and what terms will be on the page. Often these sites are very high PR sites and have internal promotional tools that help you promote the page. Throw some links at those pages from other linking sources and it is very easy to get a PR3-PR4 page that is specifically matched to the topic of your link and the page your are linking to.

So, what’s the catch? Mostly it’s just time and effort with very little cost to you. Here are the basic steps to creating content on one of these sites.

  1. Register with the site
  2. Choose the phrase that will be used in the URL of your new page
  3. Write unique content to put on the page (usually 2-3 400+ word articles on a subject)
  4. Make sure you have optimized the writing so that your keywords are prominent in the articles
  5. Add whatever other modules that will make the page look good, usually this includes images, videos, lists, and other component pieces that the site offers that you can add to your page.
  6. Find out what the site offers in the way of tags, and other promotional tools and set as many of those up as you can. This often includes adding your page in groups with other similar types of pages.
  7. Finally get some links pointing to your new page. This insures that your page will be indexed quickly and will gain PR.

Link Wheels

Web 2.0 sites are the primary components of seo link wheels. Link wheels are content pages on one particular topic that link to each other in a circle with one site or page linking to the next one in line. In addition to linking to the next page in line each page also links to the target page or site that you are actually trying to promote.

Many webmasters also add some of the monetizing modules so they can make money and also get the link to one of their sites.

By using this method you are able to get some highly relevant links pointing to your site, from high PR websites that have a lot of authority. All at very little cost (not including your time)

Twitter SEO

Another web 2.0 site to consider is Twitter. Twitter is more of a Social Media Marketing site. Twitter is not a revenue sharing site, nor does it give you direct linking benefits (all links go through a URL shortener), however Google does in some way seem to count these links. When you look at the Google webmaster tools or even doing a “link:” search at times links will show up that went through a link shortener. Google understands Twitter as a source of temporary social links. This can be useful in providing a quick burst for a new webpage.

I usually try to have different Twitter accounts for each subject I am doing SEO for tweeting and building followers based on the particular subject. It’s more of a hassle and takes a lot more time to build all the followers but it is worth it in the long run.

Social Media Marketing

In addition to Twitter there is a whole host of other Social Media Marketing site. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and others allow you to add your own content and can produce quick and often large bursts of traffic.
