Has anyone used IFTTT to successfully build backlinks?

Have heard people use IFTTT for building SEO backlinks but curious if anyone has tried it to success or failure? Any tips or things to stay away from?

Umm no. Haven't gotten a chance yet. Brief me a little more about it?

I haven't, but I could see a situation where you use IFTTT to target specific searches on social platforms like Twitter based on the piece of content you want linked to. Then triggering an email sent to you with that person's twitter handle so you can use a tool like Email Hunter to find their email address and send them an outreach email.

So in this flow, IFTTT would be a prospecting tool. Though I would still do some validating research to make sure this person's website is worth linking from and whatever other metrics mattered in my outreach campaign.

Have you tried searching IFFTTT for previously built menus others have shared?

It really depends on your SEO strategy. You can use IFTTT to automate blog syndication. For example you build branded blogs on various Web 2.0 sites. You set up IFTTT recipes to syndicate content on these Web 2.0 blogs from what you post on your main website's blog. If you regularly post content on your blog then you will receive backlinks on these sites, therefore helping to build the domain authority and trust of your website. Will this strategy propel you to page 1 on Google? Probably not. But you may get more traffic to your content because Web 2.0 web pages can often outrank other websites for long tail keywords. Also, make sure that you link back to your main website with branded or URL anchor text and not keyword anchor text.

  • IFTTT can notify you of questions asked on Quora, Yahoo!, Twitter or other sites about topics in your niche, so you can provide the content to answer them.

Hi,

My suggestion is to NEVER use any kind of automation for SEO. Don't do any kind of automation for content writing or updating and don't do any kind of automation for link building since its a sure way to get penalized by Google.
