Pageflake: Another Promotional Backlink Idea

Here we go again! I have another page link tool for you to check out. Remember backlinks are what gets your blog ranked higher in the search engine. The higher your rank the more hits you will get. The more hits you get...Well, you get the picture.

The tool, well it's not really a tool per se, is actually a like a homepage. It's called Pageflakes. You set this page up with a series of modules, called flakes. The Pageflake you create can then be published as a pagecast for the world to see. You tag your Pageflake just as you would anything else and publish it.

Pageflake is free. You go to the site, set up favorite modules, edit those modules to suit your taste, and when you've got what you want you can register to keep it. Once you create an account (which requires email verification, a user name, and a password) your page is saved.

After you have saved your page you can add flakes (modules), feeds, and personalize it with a theme. Then you publish it: make a profile, decide the level of privacy (for link building you really want to go full board with it), and then you get your URL.

If you want, you can make your Pageflake your home page. This is optional. Just don't forget to bookmark or favorite your Pageflake so you know where it's at.

I put my AC, blog, and myspace feeds on mine. You can look at it HERE. I'm going to keep adding stuff to it over the next few weeks. You can bet I'll link it on my sidebar--just like everything else.

To put your Blogger blog on it, you can do an anything flake or choose another Blogger module in the entertainment section and edit it to read your atom feed. The same goes for myspace.

The process is simple really once you get to playing around with it. Total time for my set-up took about 30 minutes.

I have to give credit where credit is due. Thank you Christopher Reed for letting me know about Pageflakes.

  1. You do realize that while doing all this IT research, you are neglecting your fiction. ;)

    I'm having trouble keeping up with all these cool tools!

  2. Hey J.L., I know, sigh. I'm writing a lot though.

    Writing about writing.
    Writing about sites.
    Writing about thinking.
    Writing about poetry.
    Writing about practicing my writing.

    I am writing...

    About the tools, there's too many out there. I have not scratched the surface. One day I'm going to find the one that does it all!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. You Go Girl! Hi! It's me trying to sound young. I think you've only scratched the surface, as every day I find something different. If it helps go for it. Your pageflake looks amazing and there's so much to see and do there. Looks a bit like iGoogle homepage except everyone can see it. So well done!

    Take Care,

  4. Muse:

    Great info - I'll check it out. You must be a genius, because you always find these strange pages with all this stuff to build, and the amazing thing is that you understand it all so well. What I'd give for your brain.

    Happy trails.

  5. Hi there Peter! I have come across so many different things. The Internet is so cool! Gadgets galore!

    Hey Swu! Let me know if you build a pageflake, I'd love to see it!

    You two have a great day!
