The miracle is this: The more we share the more we have. (Leonard Nimoy)
What Mr. Spock means in our case: Share your links to get back great free dofollow backlinks for your SEO success! Just like Start.me, ProtoPage, or AllMyFaves the french website netvibes.com offers one of the biggest start page services worldwide. But they offer so many possibilities on their website that it takes a lot of work to generate those high-quality dofollow backlinks we want so desperately. My first try some months ago didn’t succeed because I just didn’t have the time to play with all the functions. So let’s cut to the chase and start to create our public dashboard…
Create a free account at netvibes.com
First of all sign up for free here: https://www.netvibes.com/signup by using your email address or any other option you prefer. We just need the basic account whithout any paid fee.
After this first step, you have to click the activation link sent to your mailbox.
If you like to learn more about all the netvibes.com functions you may go through the coaching. But you can also close it, because I will show you all the necessary functions and how to create free dofollow backlinks for your blog or website.
Go to the upper right corner, open the drop-down menu and click on ACCOUNT to get to the account settings.
Go to EDIT ACCOUNT INFO on the left side to update your profile at netvibes.com with a name and confirm your age. Otherwise, this service will not work properly!
Now click on MANAGE DASHBOARDS to create your first dashboard at netvibes.com. Put in a little description and up to six keywords. Don’t forget to enable your public dashboard before you save the changes!
By clicking on the title of your newly created dashboard you can change its name of it. To get into your new dashboard you just have to click on the URL, which is in my case https://www.netvibes.com/backlinkguide – what else? Here you can create your free dofollow backlinks…
Move your mouse to the upper left corner where you can see a green button labeled with + Add. We need to add more widgets to this page, because right now it’s totally empty…
On the next screen you will see almost nothing, so choose what’s there: Reading app!
Add your RSS-Feed to the empty field and click on the PLUS to submit. Normally your RSS-Feed consists of your URL and /feed/ – in my case it’s https://backlinkgui.de/feed/. You can also use your RSS Feed from FeedBurner or Feedly.
Now you have to click on the green plus in the upper left corner of the newly created little tile to add this app to your dashboard. This app will show at least the articles of the last three months. You can change and customize the appearance of the feed by clicking on settings and display, I prefer the simple list.
Push the Button + Add once again to see where the app is placed on your dashboard, just drag & drop it to move it to another place.
But there is still much more than only a simple RSS-Reader. The section ESSENTIAL APPS is the real deal. Here you can find a lot of little widgets to make your dashboard at netvibes.com your ultimate start page. But for now, we only need one more of them:
The widget/app LINK MODULE does exactly what we need – linking to our content with a high-quality dofollow backlink. (I tried the BOOKMARK WIDGET first, but that isn’t visible on your public dashboard.)
Click on the tile Link module to get into the settings.
Just fill in the URL you’d like to publish, click the plus at the end of the row and then ADD TO YOUR DASHBOARD. You can do that as often, as you like. Push the Button + Add once again to see where the widgets are placed right now.
You can easily drag & drop these fields to another section of the page. That’s it – now you have some real good new dofollow backlinks!
Customizing your public dashboard at netvibes.com
Of course, you can customize your personal dashboard at netbvibes.com, just click on the Settings icon at the top of the page.
You can choose from a completely free gallery of different themes...
…and also use your picture or banner in the header and footer of the dashboard.
Here’s what mine looks like right now. Maybe I spent some time more editing it if I can spare some more time. It’s really worth all the work…

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, 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 be indexed very fast if you do it the right way.
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!
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.
