Use Yourstreet News Site For More Backlinks and Blog Readership!

yourstreet

 The Yourstreet site is local news, information and conversations mapped to the street level for over 50000 locations and every zip code in the US.

YourStreet connects you to the local information that impacts you most – what’s going on in your town, your neighborhood, and your street.

 

 

YourStreet is a website that will map news articles to your home town! The company’s proprietary algorithm aggregates articles from tens of thousands of news sources every day, interprets the articles, determines their location, and displays them as locations on an interactive Google map. YourStreet also allows users to add their own articles and conversations, connecting people at the local level.

So here is where the value comes in! After creating your blog post at Active Rain or outside blog send it to Yourstreet. This is one of the better ways to pick up backlinks for your blog.

For those who are not familiar with backlinks, they are one of the back bones of search engine optimization (SEO). The more quality backlinks you get, along with good content, will be what drives your site to rank higher in Google and other search engines. It is super easy to add your posts to the site as you just supply a small snippet of your post along with the link to the post and a title - it is that simple. It takes 3 minutes max!

See how I have added posts from my Active Rain blog to the site by clicking on the link for mystreet Hopkinton Massachusetts.

See my profile for yourstreet here: Bill Gassett yourstreet profile.

You will notice you are able to add your professional bio along with your website!

Adding Your Blog To YourStreet:

You can also partner with yourstreet and have your Active Rain or other blog be syndicated to their site if you do not feel like manually entering your posts.

They will soon have an automated form to add your blog to their system, but for now simply use the feedback form linked to at the bottom of any page and send them your name and the URL of your blog. That’s all you need to do.

If your blog looks appropriate, they wiil add it to their system. When you publish a new post on your blog it will then automatically be mapped and a brief summary will appear on YourStreet with a link back to your blog!

 

One of my other favorite sites for creating backlinks at the Local level is the Topix News site. See my post on Topix here:

I absolutley love this site and you will too! Apply to be an editor and post your blogs there. You will see your posts indexed in Google giving yourself more online presence!

There is just so much out there to use that I almost don't know where to turn first...how do you decide?  What works and what doesn't?  This is great info but I'm afraid I will not retain the information....

Sonja - I find that if I try something and it looks good I will come back and use it. Give Yourstreet a whirl and see if it works for your business.

Bill- How do you deal with public comments on Topix that are negative - like " I didn't know this was an advertising forum! Ridiculous!"  I've received some of those- cannot delete them.

Wendy - I never seen that so I am not sure what to say. I will tell you though that there are a lot of nut cases in that forum. I guess I would justbe polite...in the end they will look like fools:)

Hi Frank - If you have been accepted as an editor there should be a little red box up in the upper left hand corner. If you click on this button it will ask you to add the URL for your story. It is easy as that.
