We are trying to start an entire industry around the moving image. The more people on the space promoting the cause, the better for the medium… and I like to meet and work with all of them! (Alex Chung, Founder & CEO giphy.com)

Trust me: You should work with Alex Chung and his amazing giphy.com, too! It is not only a database but also the biggest search engine for GIF-Files. Every time you comment with an animated GIF on Facebook or Twitter this huge database is involved. And being part of it it’s absolutely worth it. You will earn not only a free high-quality dofollow backlink for your website or blog, but also some of your social media channels like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, tumblr, YouTube, or Tik Tok. It’s really easy to get this profile, just follow my instructions… this premium backlink will give your ahrefs DomainRank a good boost!

Since some of you are not able to read more than the description above once again my advice: Read the f…ing manual! To get a link like this indexed at Google or ahrefs you have to tell the bots and crawlers where to look! Use all the little helpers I’ve already shown you. Just do it!

Don’t forget to share your newly created backlink!

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, AllMyFaves.com, start.me, diigo.com, Instapaper.com, dailygram.com, linktr.ee, Hatena.ne.jp, ello.co, myminifactory.com, netvibes.com, imgur.com, 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 would take some time and a lot of link power to get indexed, especially at ahrefs.

Check your link-building success with the Google Search Console

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!
