I know what you’re saying. You’re thinking social backlinks don’t count because they are (mostly) nofollowed.

But guess what? There are tons of great reasons to get active about building social media backlinks besides SEO.

The biggest reason? People are clicking on links in social profiles and their news feeds.

What You Will Learn

  • Why you need social backlinks
  • Where & how you can place links on social profiles, pages and groups
  • How to track link clicks from social profiles

While this guide may be long, actually updating your social profiles, pages and groups will take probably only take you an hour, based on the actual number of social properties you own and manage.

Also note that I skipped the obvious “drop a link in your status update” as you know you can do that. Unless there are special ways to do it or ways that people are not doing often.

Why You Need Social Backlinks

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Reddit are in the top 20 most visited websites globally, according to Alexa.

These websites all have a domain authority of 99 to 100.

What does this mean to you? It means you can have social backlinks to your websites that are guaranteed to get tons of traffic and tons of respect from Google. Nofollow or not.

Although the role of nofollow social media backlinks in search optimization is debatable, the goal isn’t purely SEO juice. The goal of social media links is to get clicks.

So keep an open mind and let’s move on with the social link building strategy.

How to Track Your Social Media Backlinks

You’re likely a bit skeptical about this whole “social backlinks gets clicks” thing. To help with this, why not track the social media clicks you are getting from your social media.

The easiest way to track social media backlinks is with UTM parameters and Google Analytics. For example, if you used the following links on LinkedIn profile…

Google Analytics would be able to tell you that you got clicks to your website from your LinkedIn profile from each of these sections: contact info, projects and publications.

You’d find this information in your Acquisitions > Campaigns > All Campaigns report when you click on the social profile campaign.

Note that you can’t use UTM parameters on all of your social profiles. For example, on Twitter, you would end up with a really long link in the website field.

On any social network that displays the full URL for your website, you can only use UTM parameters if you shorten your URL with or a similar service. This tactic might not be a good strategy for branding purposes though as people are sometimes wary of links.

So let’s look at all of the places where you can – and should – add links to your social profiles, pages and groups.

Facebook Links

First, we’ll start with the most popular social network of them all.

1. Your personal profile’s about tab.

When someone visits your personal profile on Facebook, you’ll want to connect them to your website. To do this, add your website link in the website field under Contact and Basic Info on your About tab.

Facebook social media links

Be sure to mark this field as public so everyone can see it, regardless of whether they are connected to you. When someone’s not even logged into Facebook, they’ll still see your website link in the bottom right column of your profile.

You can also link up your Facebook page to your Facebook profile by adding it as your current employer. This link will give visitors to your personal profile two ways to connect to your website and business.

2. All of your personal profile (and page) posts.

Obviously, you can add a link to a Facebook post and drive traffic to your website. But what about those posts that aren’t links to articles?

Facebook now links any reference to a Anytime you post something to your wall – especially posts that are publicly visible – add your website URL in that manner.

For example, you could say thanks to someone for including your website when sharing a link to an article mentioning you.

Facebook status links

You could use it when you’re sharing quotes you’ve written, quotes published on your blog, statistics published on your website and so on. You could sign every post you write on your Facebook wall with your domain like this.

Think of it like part of an email signature.

If the updates are public, your followers and anyone who visits your profile will see your website link in your latest update.

For those currently capitalizing on Facebook’s love of video sharing, this tactic can help you get your website URL out to hundreds of thousands of viewers. Or even millions…

Facebook video link building

Remember this little factoid – it works just about everywhere on Facebook. Posts, profile tabs, page tabs, groups, etc.

3. Your page’s about tab.

Your Facebook page’s about tab gives you lots of opportunities to link back to your website, especially thanks to the links.

Facebook about page social backlinks

At bare minimum, you need to use the website link as that will show up on your page.

Facebook timeline links

You can get double the benefits by including your in your page’s short description and using a landing page in the website field.

For example, you could have a link to your best lead magnet’s squeeze page in the website field.

4. Your profile and cover photo descriptions.

This area is the spot that most people forget. But when someone clicks on your cover photo or your profile photo (on your personal profile or your page), they’ll get the lightbox with your photo.

To the right of the photo, you have the perfect opportunity to link to your website. Take HubSpot, for example. They use their cover photo to advertise a lead magnet.

Facebook social link building strategy

It’s the perfect way to get people to click on that cover photo and then on through to your website.

5. Your group description.

Don’t let your group description go to waste! Get your in the first 96 characters so that when anyone visits your Facebook group, they’ll see your website.

Facebook groups

You can also pin posts in your group. If your group relates to a website, make sure that pinned post has your in it!

Twitter Links

Now, let’s look at some good Twitter social link building opportunities.

6. Your profile bio.

Yes, you have a website field on your Twitter profile. But you can also have a link in your actual 160-character bio, giving you the opportunity to share your link twice!

Twitter social link building strategy

Why does that spot matter? Not only does it give you the chance to share two different links to your website, but the link in your bio will show up in other places on Twitter, like search results.

Twitter bio search results

The link you put in your profile’s website field won’t show up here.

There are also a lot of sites that lift your Twitter bio information for profiles, such as Klout. It won’t get the URL in your website field, but it will get the one in your 160-character bio.

Other Twitter profiles

Some of these types of sites are giving out followed links, so be sure to give them the chance to grab yours.

Note that while Twitter will hyperlink without the http://, other sites (like Klout) that pull your bio will only hyperlink if the http:// is included.

7. Your photo & video tweets.

Notice that box of photos and videos? It is created when you share photos and videos in tweets. If you’re sharing photos and videos to Twitter, make sure you include a link to your website.

This way, when someone clicks on one of those thumbnails, they’ll get your website URL in the lightbox. Otherwise, they’ll just get this.

Twitter photos

For those of you sharing viral quote images and funny videos, this applies especially to you. If you get retweeted, you’ll want your link out there for everyone to click.


Connecting with professionals? Here are some great social backlinks for your LinkedIn profile, page and groups.

8. Your profile’s contact info.

Your profile’s contact info tab allows you to add up to three links. These links will be shown at the top of your LinkedIn profile for non-logged in users.

LinkedIn social link building strategy

Be sure to use all three and customize the anchor text for them by choosing other instead of choosing the other options they offer when adding a link (company, blog, website, etc.).

Also, track clicks from these links with UTM parameters.

9. Your profile’s projects and publications.

The contact info tab is obscure at best for logged in users. For this reason, you’ll want to add your website link to other sections of your LinkedIn profile. Specifically the projects and publications sections.

Your websites can easily be projects.

LinkedIn Projects

Your best blog posts and lead magnets (white papers, ebooks, reports, etc.) can easily be publications.

Linkedin Publications

Both of these sections puts a direct link from your LinkedIn profile to your websites and landing pages without having to rely on visitors clicking that little Contact Info tab.

You can track clicks from these links with UTM parameters too!

10. Your company page’s basic information.

LinkedIn company pages allow you to enter your website URL as a part of your basic information.

LinkedIn company pages

In lieu of the former products and services tab, there are now showcase pages that you can create under the umbrella of your LinkedIn company page.

You can add your product or service landing page URL to the corresponding showcase page.

LinkedIn showcase

You can also post updates to both your company page and showcase pages, so be sure to do so to give your followers more chances to click through to your website.

11. Your group’s website.

If you own a LinkedIn group, you can add a website to the group information during setup or in the group settings.

LinkedIn group profiles

This information shows up by default to anyone who isn’t a member of your group. So if someone clicks on your group to join it, they’ll be introduced to your website as well.

12. Your group’s emails.

Owning a LinkedIn group has a special advantage over Facebook groups and Google+ communities. LinkedIn group owners can email group members once a week.

That’s right – once a week, you can legitimately get in the inbox of people who haven’t opted into your mailing list.

Just go to your group’s management menu and choose the send announcement feature.

Social Backlinks From LinkedIn

If you haven’t been motivated to create a LinkedIn group before, here’s the best reason to now.

Pinterest Links

Pinning your website content for traffic? Here’s what you need to know about social backlinks from Pinterest.

13. Your profile link.

Your profile allows you to have one website link. Be sure to use it!

14. Your pins.

Did you know you can edit your Pinterest pin links after you create them? This tip is especially helpful if you want to upload a photo from your computer to create a pin as opposed to pinning an image on a page.

Just go to your pin and click the edit button!

Pinterest social link building strategy

Affiliate marketers tip: if you’ve pinned stuff from Amazon, edit the link to include your Amazon Associate’s URL. While Pinterest is cracking down on affiliate links on pins, they haven’t seemed to catch this one. Yet.

Make it an obscure tracking ID for best results.

If you’re linking to your own website, use your UTM parameters to track the clicks.

Instagram Links

Instagram for links? Why not!

15. Your profile link.

You can – and should – add a link to your Instagram profile. Preferably add it with some icons that draw people’s attention to it.

Instagram social backlinks

That link will also get some love from the desktop version of your Instagram profile when people find your profile in search.

16. Your updates.

No, you can’t add a hyperlink to your Instagram posts. Well, you can, but it’s not clickable.

The popular trend is to tell people to go to your profile and click on your profile link to learn more about what your Instagram photo or video is about.

Instagram post links

Just be sure to keep updating that Instagram profile link if you change your promotions.

Google+ Links

Google+ is going to be changing soon, or dying, depending on which post you read. So I’m not sure how long these social backlinks will last. But they never hurt to try for the time being.

Especially since Google+ profiles and pages do get lots of views (mine currently has 341k).

17. Your introduction links.

On the about tab for your profile or page, you should have an area where you can write an introduction about yourself or your business.

Google Plus social link building strategy

The link you place in here can be customized with specific anchor text, or just placed as a URL. The best part – it’s a followed link!

So be sure to take advantage of placing a link or two in this part of your Google+ profile or page.

Especially since it’s much higher than your actual links box.

You can track clicks from these links with UTM parameters.

18. Your profile and page links.

Google+ profiles have a link section that allows you to link to your other social profiles, websites to which you contribute and your own websites.

Google Plus social backlinks

Pages, on the other hand, allow you to set an official website link and then enter links related to your business.

Google Plus backlinks

While these are nofollowed, they should be utilized for click purposes. And you should track clicks to your website with your UTM parameters.

19. Your community’s about description links.

Do you have a Google+ community (similar to a Facebook or LinkedIn group)? If so, then you need to add website links to your community’s basic information.

Google Plus comunity

Combined with a short description, your links will show up at the top of your community.

Since there aren’t many well-known tools to auto-publish to Google+ groups, people have to visit them (even to spam).

Therefore, your links will get lots of visibility.

You can track these with your UTM parameters too (along with the rest of the links mentioned within Google+ profiles and pages).

More Social Link Building Ideas

Looking for more social link building opportunities? Here are some additional ideas.

20. Do an AMA.

If you get the opportunity to do an AMA (ask me anything) on sites like Inbound, you’ll get some followed links in your introduction.

Ask Me Anything links

Since people are coming to get your expertise, they’ll likely be interested in learning more about you and connecting with you through your website.

21. Drop links as part of a discussion instead of as links.

Sites like Reddit can be brutal if they deem you a spammer. But they’ll love you if you’re being helpful.

Dropping a link in as part of a discussion helps you get a followed link and keeps you from being deemed a spammer if you do it the right way. Like this.

Reddit social link building

It’s a discussion in the appropriate subreddit as opposed to a link share. And it performed pretty well.

22. Check out other social networks.

Did you know there are over 500 social networks out there? KnowEm has them listed on their website. You can even have them create your profiles for you for a fee.

Wrapping It Up

I hope that you’ve gone out and created some social backlinks with the profiles, pages and communities you have – or that you are going out to do them now.

And I hope that you’ve discovered a few new ways to build some clickable social media backlinks!

Did I miss any social link building opportunities? If so, share them in the comments!

    I didn’t realize you could even put in naked URLs that end up being links in those areas in the Facebook profile. Thanks!!

    One other great places to get social links is a YouTube channel header. You can add multiple links there.

    Lot of new tips and opportunity grab from this post.

  5. 3.10.2015

    Hi Matt,
    Very powerful post, but perhaps too many profiles (knowem lists hundreds of social media sites) without activity could damage. Do you recommend some type of autopilot to keep alive some of them?

    P.D. I was reading this post in my mobile and the lateral widget (Rankcracker and Subscription form) just appeared and cover all the screen (could read the article only to the point of the trigger). Perhaps this plugin is anti-responsive.

    • March 12th, 2015 at 8:55 am

      Actually I have most of them setup but mainly as a branding/protection exercise than anything else.

  6. 3.10.2015

    The last link to Knowem website is the thing that I was searching for from months. Thanks matt, like always, I got something new from your blog.

  7. Shahid Maqbool

    Hello matthew you posted some videos on youtube about link building that method is white hat or black hat …

    • March 12th, 2015 at 8:53 am

      There is no such thing as white hat. The second you build any kind of links you violate webmaster guidelines regardless of what it is or how you built it.

    • March 13th, 2015 at 6:34 am

      If you’re making only 1 backlink then it’s black hat in front of Big G. lol! everything is grey and black hat…

  8. NYC Jobs Source

    This was awesome – very smart. I went through all of my accounts and added links. Thanks.

  9. 3.10.2015

    Another great post Mat. Looking forward to seeing what you are offering at the SEO meet up in London in a couple of months.

    Social noise is going to matter even more after April 21st and Google’s split search for mobiles. I’m predicting (oh dear, I might regret this) that The Big G will value social noise even higher for their mobile index. Maybe reducing the value on desktop searches, but pretty certain mobile will rely heavily on social proof.

    And a almost real time index as well. So you can experiment and promote without too much concern of the re-assessment process taking weeks or months.

    What say you Matty :) ?

    • March 12th, 2015 at 8:50 am

      Hey Paul,

      Which meetup?

      And its not often we know the exact date a Google search update is going to happen – April 21st. You can be sure I have everything in play to meet that deadline as well :)

      I’m not sure if Google need to seperate mobile/desktop algos over and above the mobile layout update and site speed.

  11. Andita Sely Bestoro

    I’ve been using Facebook, Twitter, G + and LinkedIn to create some backlinks. But I’ve never tried to optimize Pinterest and Instagram. Never thought of before.

    Thank you for a very useful article.

  12. 3.10.2015

    Great all-in-one post! A complete social profile including the website information gives out a signal that you care, but many (i’ve been guilty of this) keep postponing that. A minute spent doing that goes a long way in establishing better credibility.

    Getting the link through Instagram profile was new for me. The Reddit example is good as well.

    Finally: “did you know there are over 500 social networks out there” – all we now need is a tool to create profiles on all those sites in 15 min flat :). Suggestions?

  13. 3.10.2015

    This article is like a hard slap on my face. Honestly I already know like half of them but still not doing it until now. Thanks Matt (for the slap)

  14. Michael Curry

    Thanks for the info. I have been using most of these but there were some I had missed. I may give Reddit a go next.

  15. 3.10.2015

    Great post, Matt!! :)

    Got an idea or two to take action on. Never thought about using Instagram to advertise my site. I have Facebook group – I’ll have to get a link in the description as well.

    • March 12th, 2015 at 8:38 am

      Post useful things, good content, engage community – behind every ‘click’ from pinterest is a real person. Just influence people like you do in any other marketing channel.

  17. 3.11.2015

    Hello Matthew, you have been a Blessing to my blogging experience. Each time I Read or watch a tutorial/guide you publish, I always have positive values added to my business. G** bless you.

    I have watched your tutorials on spinning (Best Spinner ) & backlinking. Please, what is your view about using “No Hands SEO” software? I know it might not be best, but I’m considering cost also. It’s just a one time $77 price software.

    Thanks so much.

    • March 12th, 2015 at 8:37 am

      Thanks :)

      I used that a couple of years ago and I wasn’t impressed at all, Scrapebox is a better buy as it can do pretty much the same thing but a million other things as well.

  18. Alex.

    Simply Brilliant !

  19. 3.11.2015

    These were some great tips Matt! I knew most of them but definitely learned a few. Like the Klout link not working if there is no HTTP. So I simply changed to custom bio on Klout and fixed it! Also the CTA on your FB banner is clever. Not sure how many people actually click on that, but everything adds up. I have recently found Reddit to be a great source of traffic. I usually link to “how to” articles on my site and as long you help them fix their problem they won’t be flagged as spam/removed.

    • March 12th, 2015 at 8:32 am

      Great tip for Reddit, something I’m considering having a play with soon =D

  20. 3.11.2015

    Hi Matthew.

    You have included some great ideas here.

    I don’t use social media nearly as much as I do. However, I learned a lot from this post and have bookmarked it to refer to when trying out some new suggestions.



  21. 3.12.2015

    Hey Matthew,

    It’s been awhile since I visited your blog and something compelled me to stop by and see what you’ve been up to. As I scrolled down the page, I saw my own avatar show up in your screenshot from your Facebook Page (example #3) — now I feel like a giddy school girl!! lol
    So great to visit here and get these great tips. I’ll be sure to share this!

    Hello Matthew,
    Link building still works?
    I have read in many forums and sites that links building and seo is dead now and content is the king .
    I want to know your thoughts .


    • March 15th, 2015 at 8:22 am

      SEO means, search engine optimisation. As in, optimising for search engines. So as long as search engines exist we can optimise for them. Anyone that says SEO is dead is an idiot that should be ignored and/or are an unskilled SEO.

    That’s a pretty comprehensive roundup of all the major social players. Really like the trick of popping a link in the text by the cover image / profile photo. Had done that over on G+ but forgot to do the same on Facebook, so thanks for the reminder!

    Possibly one to add would be Tagboard, which gives you the option of linking not just to your website but also to your main social profiles as well, e.g.

    Hi Matthew. Thanks for the excellent information. I’m new at affiliate marketing and this article is a great resource! Please forgive me if you covered this already, and I missed it, but I’m not sure which name I should be using for social media profile names.

    Should I use my personal name or website name (not the entire URL, but the shorten version, like MyBlog) for the profile name. I understand my url needs to go in the URL field. Thanks!
