How I generate Targeted Traffic and Quality Backlinks with Scoop.it

Let me share with you a little secret I have been using to generate both backlinks and traffic to my blog. Once I publish any content on my blog, I search and suggest the post to topics covering or related to the post on Scoop.it and once it’s been accepted it will be curated on that topic’s wall and a backlink is created. This is also a great method of generating traffic for my blog, the more people find the content interesting they re-scoop it and the post gains even more exposure.

Warning: Please do not spam your links or content around the web so it won’t be marked as spammy link.
