Following my previous post about building links through article directory submission, I figured that since we are on a link building mode, to introduce you to an awesome service which I have been using for a while now to share content, build relationships, interact with users, while at the same time obtaining inbound links almost automatically. How? Read on.
Introducing Amplify, a service that lets you clip, share and add your take on specific parts of articles and blogs you read on the web, as well as images or videos you find online. You can use the Amplify bookmarklet in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer. Amplify is that interesting that it can be considered almost an all-in-one social media application. Should this be the case, it is definitely one of the best social media apps out there.
How Does Amplify Help In link Building?
With Amplify, you can share blog posts, videos, articles, music, etc., all this in a little over 140 characters. One of the interesting features about this service is that you can increase your exposure and build links without the tedious work of manually submitting whatever it is you want to share to social bookmarking sites, micro-blogging platforms, and more. In addition to engaging in a conversation on Amplify (sort of FriendFeed), everything you share can be auto-posted to Twitter, Facebook, Buzz, Posterous, Tumblr, Friendfeed, and more, thus building links and easily sharing content with your friends and followers all around the web. It also creates an “Amplog”, where you can customize your settings, themes, add external links, etc. Take a look at this video to see some of Amplify’s features.
As you can see it is very easy to use Amplify. Now for the added twist. Once you amplify content, the autopost feature will seamlessly integrate it with all of your selected social networking sites and to micro-blogging platforms such as Posterous. Posterous has also a built in social integration (autopost) and will “reamplify” to other social networks where Amplify currently does not support. Here is a nice write up about Posterous.
There are so many things you can do with Amplify that it is difficult to lay them all out here. Instead, I suggest you to check it out for yourself as I am convinced that you will like this interface just as much as I do. As I said, it helps you build relationships, interact with users and build links. Use it as part of your SEO link building campaign. Give it a try and let me know how Amplify works for you.
