In the world of photography, you get to share a captured moment with other people. (James Wilson)
Exactly that’s why I share all the link-building stuff with pictures on my SEO Blog. Today I will show you how to create a free premium dofollow backlink from shutterstock.com, one of the biggest websites for stock images worldwide. This backlink is perfect for photographers, food- and travel bloggers. Of course, you can also upload and sell your amazing pictures to earn some money with them.
I will be offline for three weeks now, on holiday in beautiful Sardegna with my little family. And will surely take a lot of amazing pictures there. 😉 See you in July 2022!

Let’s bring some life into your portfolio/user profile at shutterstock.com. You can edit your display name, and the URL and finally insert your homepage or blog. This link will be a powerful dofollow backlink. The social media links are nice to have, but only nofollow. Don’t forget to save changes before you leave.
Here is what my fantastic free profile at Shutterstock looks like and of course the link I need to promote now to get indexed: https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Backlinkguide/about. I really hope it will work for a long time.

Like always you have to share and publish this new link to get it indexed as fast as possible. I’ve already shared it on this page, on lasso.net, protopage.com, AllMyFaves.com, start.me, diigo.com, Instapaper.com, dailygram.com, linktr.ee, imgur.com, ello.co, twitch.tv, and telegram as shown in the last articles. All other already existing Social Media Channels with outgoing dofollow links will also be very helpful. But in my link-building tutorial, I will soon show you a lot more free landing pages and profiles where you can publish them with a lot more link juice. This URL could take some time to be indexed.
Don’t forget to check your link-building success from time to time. You can use the Google Search Console to see which domains already give you a fully working backlink if you don’t have a paid tool at ahrefs, XOVI, MOZ, Sistrix, or Searchmetrics. More about that topic here: https://backlinkgui.de/seo-basics/#Important_tools_to_control_SEO_measures
And that is the link to the Google Search Console: https://search.google.com/search-console – get an account, it’s for free! And you need to control your backlinks. In case you wonder: The link list in the Google Search Console will be updated only once a week. So please stay patient… good SEO needs some time!
