I first coded DropMyLink over 7 years ago.
The initial version was extremely simple and it took me maybe an hour to code up. It had 15 or so SEO footprints that you could use to discover some useful backlink sources.
7 years is a long time, especially in this internet age.
We’ve seen a dramatic change in the way Google ranks sites, and purely dropping random, off-topic links is no longer an effective strategy anymore.
The reason I started Drop My Link in the first place, was to make my life easier to build backlinks to my sites.
Back then, adding some profile, comment, directory and web 2.0 links was often enough to get your sites ranking on the first page of Google very easily.
