Here are a few more social media sites you might not have considered for your link building campaigns:
Bazooka Buzz [General News]
This Swedish site is a real gem that will send a couple of thousand visits to a popular post and generate linkage. Thankfully stories don’t have to be written in Swedish to make the front page.
Cracked Pipeline [Offbeat]
If you are taking the humor angle with your bait then this is a great place to submit. Not only will Cracked Pipeline send traffic, if your story is made popular you’ll also pick up a few citations from other blogs.
Design Float [Design]
A site to submit anything from graphic design and marketing to architecture and digital art. Design Float doesn’t send a lot of traffic, but you are getting exposure to bloggers in the niche.
If you are link baiting on software and web development then don’t miss out on DZone. A popular story won’t crash your server, but a good bait can pick up some good links.
eBaumsWorld eLinks [Offbeat]
The addition of eLinks means it is now possible to get a link and traffic from this aged domain. Strange or funny images and videos as well as humorous stories tend to do best.
You’ll be instantly familiar with the Lipstick layout and system because it is based on Reddit, only it’s specifically for the celebrity niche. The site doesn’t send much traffic but you can get some decent links with the right story.
Meneame [General News]
When it comes to the ratio of traffic : linkage, I have never seen any site perform as well as Meneame. A popular story on this Spanish social media site will also send you a few thousand visitors.
Shoutwire [General News]
Should you submit a story here, go easy on your promotion as the editors are known to come down hard on anything that looks suspicious. Shoutwire will send traffic to a popular story and generate some linkage.
Sphinn was destined for success ever since it was spun off from the highly respected Search Engine Land. This is the best place to submit articles on SEO, online marketing, usability and other related topics. Users at Sphinn tend to be conversational; you’ll get comments and backlinks.
SugarLoving [General News]
This one is part of the Sugar Inc. network, so by submitting your content here you may also get coverage on one of their blogs.
