Grab Your Free Backlink on Google Profiles

By Daniel Scocco

I am in a hurry today, but I will leave you guys with a quick and juicy tip. As far as linkbuilding goes, every small bit helps, right? If that is the case, there is one Google service that you can use to grab an easy backlink: Google Profiles.

You just need to fill the information that they ask about yourself, include the URL of your website, add some pictures and bingo, one more backlink. As long as you add enough information, your profile will be displayed in Google’s search results, and it should count as a normal backlink because Google does not use the nofollow attribute on the website links.

This service is also useful if you are not worried with building links, because it gives you an opportunity to create a profile page and possibly to get it ranked for your name on the first page of results. So what are you waiting for?

  • Pradeep Singh

    Thanks for this tip. I have made a profile of mine.
    And ya i think, important thing rather then getting one back link, is to have a profile page on google.
    Ya i agree that our google profile can rank first for our name and thats really helpful in fact. People can even explore your homepage after they land to your Google profile.
    Really thanks.

  • Chester’s Clean House

    Thanks for the tip. Who can’t use more backlinks!

  • Max Pool

    Unfortunately Google already announced that Google Profile pages will not carry over any weighted Google Juice.

    However, it is a great way to get another very high authority page in the SERPs for your name, plus some nice entry points for the spider to start indexing your site.

  • Nikhil

    Thanks for share…
    I want to do it now..

  • Mike

    I’ve heard about this before, but does anyone think it would matter if I wasn’t able to get my name for the google account.

    In other words I have Last Name, First Name instead of First Name Last Name.

  • Thai

    Someone already took my name. 🙁 How does it work for someone like John Smith or Junior Garcia?

  • Presidente

    Thanks! Just created my Google profile, I was completely unaware of that option. 🙂

  • Martin Gray

    Really great tip, i will be keen to see how affective it is because my name is Martin Gray and i used to google rank highly for my web design portfolio. However another Martin Gray has overtaken me – well he has written a book, traveled the world and now has a film about his life! 😉

  • Tom the Webmanager

    Cool tip. Let´s Go for Backlinks from Google and for Google 😉

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Max Pool, there is a chance they announced that merely to discourage spammers 🙂 .

  • Haris

  • SEO Come

    I’ve already used for months, but I can’t see much help, not sure if Google will treat it seriously or not. Anyway, it is absolutely worth trying.

  • Tatil

  • screen-capture

    Your link to the “Google Profiles” is broken.
    Where exactly do I fill in the info, url??

    Thanks :o)

  • Thomas

    So Daniel, does this mean we’ve just acquired a PR10 backlink from google? If so, thanks for the share dude. Priceless.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Screen-capture, it is working fine here.

    @Thomas, in reality no, you would need a link placed on Google’s homepage for it to be a PR10 🙂 .

    That link won’t have huge SEO value, but it might help a little bit. Plus there is the added benefit of controlling one extra result in the SERP for your name.

  • screen-capture

    Hi Daniel,

    Is it because I’m overseas the link doesn’t work do you think
    All I’m getting is a message saying that there is not such a url.


  • Taylor

    Regardless of how well it works Google made it very easy to accomplish. I flushed out a full profile in less than 10 minutes by using the bio from my Facebook account.

    Thanks for the heads-up, I didn’t even know they existed!

  • Daily Good Tips

    Was pretty simple to do. Building links always helps newer websites attract quality traffic.
    Thank you.

  • Ed

    Besides this, what other ways can you suggest to a new site owner to help build more quality back links? Does anyone have any experience with the paid back link builders?
    Thank you.

  • Jenny

    I have just created my Google Profile, thanks to you. As for now it has no PR, according to SEO Quake. However, the back link that you can make is a dofollow. In fact, it seems that you can link as many WEB 2.0 profiles as you like.

    Perhaps, the PR of your Google profile could be enhanced thru social bookmarking and this is one good back link. But, as far as I see, it isn’t thru that you’ll have a free back link from Google by just creating a Google Profile.

    Thanks Again

  • Ed

    Does Google Profile have a PR? What does linking as many WEB 2.0 profiles as possible mean?
    Thank you.

  • SEO Tips – Are All Backlinks the Same

    And the race is on. Who can get the most PR 7 backlinks in the least amount of time and still have a site indexed by Google when the smoke clears? A little melodramatic? Maybe, but it does make a point. The fight over backlinks is one of the biggest SEO fights in the game. Everybody seems to think it’s the holy grail of search engine optimization. But is it? And are all backlinks the same? Most think they’re not. And while that’s technically true, they aren’t the be all and end all that some would think. This article explains.

    Okay, let’s be honest. A PR 7 backlink is going to be worth a heck of a lot more to your web site’s climb up the SERPs than a PR 0 backlink. But how much different are they really? Well, for starters, in case you’ve been out to tea somewhere, Google has recently downplayed the importance of PR and even took it out of one of its tools. They’re not saying it doesn’t count anymore. They’re just saying that it’s not the big thing that people think it is. And personally, I couldn’t be happier. But that’s another story.

    Truth is, I’ve got some sites that have PR 5 and 6 backlinks that are nowhere to be found near page 1 of Google’s search engine while I have sites with PR 1 and 2 backlinks that are on page 1. Why? What’s the reason? Well, the simple explanation is that there is a lot more to ranking with Google, or any search engine for that matter, than just backlinks. If that were the case, people would just beg, borrow and steal to get them. But even more important is the content on the site itself and even more important than that is the relevancy of the keywords to what people are searching for. Add to that mix the amount of time that the site has been online and………..(?)

  • Ed

    You hit the nail on the head in the article above. It all makes a lot of sense.

  • Mazher Rasheed

    Nice post i really like points the one you are talking about i even got new money making website and i never paid for any traffic or things but i have over 1000 backlinks in just one month,So i can only say this you are doing good job to sharing these things with everyone.
