This is a blackhattish thing that I love to do and it’s really been paying off lately.
Some of you may already be doing this.
1) First – either sign up for a quality proxy service or sign up for a dialup internet connection so you can dial out from multiple cities/regions. Just remember to delete cookies each time you log in as a new user from a new city.
2) Make sure you have articles submitted to ezineraticles; lenses created at Squidoo; and make sure that some of your website content has been “Digged” or “Dugg” at Digg.com.
3) Log in as a new user at ezinearticles; scroll to find an article of yours; post a comment on it – a positive comment, keep it short and simple like “this article was helpful to me – I followed your suggestions and some from your website and I cured my boils/I made a lot of money/I lost weight, etc.”
At squidoo log in as a new user; scroll to your squidoo lens and if you have a guestbook set up comment as a new guest, say something nice about the lens. If you haven’t set up a guestbook simply give your squidoo a nice rating.
At Digg log in as a new user, scroll to a past “digg” you submitted on an article; and comment on the “digg.”
Commenting on your ezinearticles, squidoo lens, and diggs with a “vote” for its quality can help your material rise in the rankings at those respective sites (ezinearticles might put it in its top list for your keyword; squidoo lens will rank higher in google; digg you comment on can gain traction in the search engines for your keywords.)
You can also add some yahooanswers to the mix. Create a keyword related question in yahoo answers as one user. Use keywords you want your website to rank for, and keywords that ideally you’ve already created an ezinearticle, squidoo lens, or Digg submission for.
Wait a few days. it’s always good to let your yahoo answers age and let a few other people answer your question so it doesn’t look like you’re spamming.
Then sign in as a new yahoo user or a different yahoo id. Respond to your own question and in the resources area list a link to your ezinearticle, your squidoo lens, and/or your recent digg submission.
So you’re creating a spiderweb of authority votes for stuff you have floating out there. If you keep tightly focused on keywords you want to rank for, this is a good way to crack those higher competition keywords that normally you’d have some troubles ranking for with your site. Plus these techniques are just good to build traffic.
If you want to really hit your ezinearticle, squidoo lens, or digg submission hard to increase its power, gradually (over weeks, not days) keep logging in as new users (via proxy or new dialup locations – remember to clear cookies first) and keep voting on or commenting on your stuff.
Its a nice way to get a little more leverage and power for your keywords.
