Backlink profile versus Onlywire?

Do you use Onlywire to syndicate your content? There's a lot of talk about Google emphasizing a natural backlink profile. Wouldn't using Onlywire (and any other mass-submission tool for that matter) contribute to an unatural backlink profile?

Isn't too many backlinks in a short period of time bad? Mass syndicating using Onlywire is tempting, but the natural backlink profile issue makes sense, and I afraid of Google giving me a hard stare.

Thanks for replies.

I haven't used OnlyWire to syndicate my content. The software may have its uses in that it lets you submit your content to various social networking sites, thus making article marketing/syndication a lot easier. I don't think it will "contribute to an unnatural backlink profile", unless it submits your work in social networking sites where you do not have any accounts at all. Or if you are submitting articles at a rate that is unnatural like 5 articles in 3-5 days or something like that.

I personally do not see it as useful since you would only really have a handful of accounts for your site in social networking sites.

Backlinks need to be built over time. It *is* unnatural to accumulate them over a short period of time, especially when your website is new.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hi Skela3,

OnlyWire is fine as long as you do not over use it- meaning you are not building too many links from it. It is a good strategy to balance your back linking tactics using software or automated tools like OnlyWire and at the same time doing manual backlinking.

I also suggest that you focus on building more quality links than accumulating too many links that are not really of quality.

Regards!

Mary

Yes, I believe quality content on your site is the best way to build backlinks -- syndicating it to get the links rolling.

I agree that's a good site. I use onlywire as part of my short list of sites to quickly index new PR for long tail keywords.
