If your computer speaks English, it was probably made in Japan. (Alan Perlis)
If you want to have international SEO success with your website or blog you need backlinks from different locations and countries all over the world. Japan has some really good and high rated websites for your link building, but there may be some problems with the language. The japanese community Hatena.ne.jp however offers you the possibility to get up to 20 free high quality dofollow backlinks – a chance you should use! And I’ll show you how to do that…
Create a free account at Hatena.ne.jp
First of all you need to sign up for free here: https://www.hatena.ne.jp/register. You can switch the language in the upper right corner. Please note: Some freemail services are not accepted in here, so I used my second address instead.
Verify your email address by clicking the verification link in the mail from Hatena.ne.jp.
After you’ve confirmed your mail address you can go into the settings for your Hatena account.
The following screen looks more complicated then it is. Just remove yourself from the Hatena Newsletter.
Now click on PROFILE on the upper left side. Your empty Hatena profile is already there… in my case it’s https://profile.hatena.ne.jp/backlinkguide/. Let’s bring it to life!
Create your own profile by clicking EDIT.
Write a small bio, upload a profile icon and tell a little bit about yourself… then scroll down to save.
Once you’ve scrolled down below, you will see a small section named Account/Email settings. Click on the Add Item menu and select Website #1 , Website #2 and Website #3 for your websites or blogs. All the other services can also be used for every link you like – not only for the suggested social media channel. But the URL shouldn’t be too long and you have to save them bit by bit.
This is how your Hatena profile could look like, but it’s up to you. Feel free to use another template and change your design. As soon as some of these links are indexed you may change them, use the next ones and be sure, that you’ll get a big push for your link building.
It’s also possible to start a blog at Hatena, but that’s much more work to do if you like to…
Of course you have to share and publish this new link to get it indexed quickly. I’ve already shared it on this page, on lasso.net, protopage.com, AllMyFaves.com, start.me, diigo.com, Instapaper.com, linktree, carrd.co, dailygram.com and telegram as shown in the last articles. All other already existing Social Media Channels with outgoing dofollow links will also be helpful. But in the next chapter of my link building tutorial I will soon show you a lot more of free landing pages and profiles where you can publish it with a lot of more linkjuice. It should get indexed very quick.
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 payed tool at ahrefs, XOVI, MOZ, Sistrix or Searchmetrics. More about that 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 really need to control your backlinks.
Please write a comment below if the link doesn’t work as described or is offline.
I want to keep this information up to date for every user.
