How To Increase Traffic To Your Website Free With This Sneaky Tip

PLEASE SHARE

What if I told you that in less than 60 seconds you can increase traffic to your website free and learn how to increase backlinks automatically all day every day without spending a penny?

Well that is exactly what I’m about to share with you :)

As long as you know how to copy and paste you are good to go!

What You Will Learn

  • How to increase traffic to your website free of charge
  • How to increase backlinks automatically
  • How to improve your content
  • My personal results when I implemented this strategy
  • How you can do it to get traffic as well

The best bit? It is 100% free!

The Forgotten Sharing Tool

Copy and pasting is one of the most powerful sharing tools on the web. Its the internet equivalent of word of mouth marketing.

Whether someone wants to share your content in an email, social media or a blog post – it’s likely they will use the copy and paste function.

increase traffic to your website with copy and paste

In the past month alone 107,157 page views has seen content leave my site 4,645 times via copy/paste.

That means 4.3% of my traffic is highlighting my content, copying it and then pasting it somewhere else.

The problem with that though, is more often than not they don’t include a link back to my page.

So how do we harness the power of the most powerful sharing tool on the web to increase traffic to your website free?

Increase Traffic To Your Website Free With Tynt

Tynt is a free service that helps you harness the power of copy/pasting once and for all!

It tracks the copying/pasting of your content across the web and provides detailed reports.

tynt overview

It has a bunch of neat features-

  • Tracks number of content copys
  • Tracks number of new backlinks generated
  • Tracks traffic coming from copy/pasting
  • Adds social media sharing button pop ups
  • Identifies keywords/phrases people used to leave your site (more below)

How Does It Work?

Whenever someone copys a piece of text or image from your site, Tynt will automatically add a backlink to the page the content was copied from.

For example if I copy some text from this post and then paste it into a new email, this is what happens-

Tynt email demonstration

You’ll notice it has automatically added a unique link to the post along with a link to my Twitter profile.

Try it out for yourself – just highlight this line of text hit copy and paste it into something to see it in action for yourself.

This is truly a great method to get free backlinks & traffic for your website!

Setting Up Tynt Is Easy

Just sign up for a free Tynt account.

You will be given a piece of Javascript code that you need to paste into the header of your site.

The Tynt script

They provide instructions for most platforms including WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr & Joomla. You can also use this wordpress plugin.

Once you have added the code jump back to Tynt and test the installation. If your using a caching plugin, don’t forget to clear caches first!

Testing your Tynt installation

Once you’ve done that the installation is complete!

Tynt is now up and running =D

Tinkering With Tynt

Next jump over to Account Tools > Settings to tinker with things a bit!

Attribution & SEO Link

This is the setting that automatically adds a backlink to your site and an optional link to your Twitter profile or Facebook page.

The settings are pretty self explanatory but here is a screenshot of mine-

Once setup it will automatically add links into copy/pastes!

This is the only Tynt feature that I have enabled, but feel free to experiment with the others below.

Address Bar Tracking

Personally I have this turned off because it adds the unique # reference to the end of URLs in the browser address bar.

Tynt URL tracking

I think it looks a bit strange and might be off putting to the average user.

Plus if someone is copying/pasting your URL – your still going to get the traffic/benefits of that anyway.

SpeedShare Widget

This is another feature of Tynt I don’t use on the blog but you might find it handy.

speedshare widget

When someone copys text it automatically pops up social sharing buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Linked and Google+

It will also add Pinterest buttons to images when people hover over them.

My Tynt Results So Far!

Let’s take a look what that tiny bit of Javascript I copy/pasted has done for the blog in the past 30 days with Tynt!

What Is Being Copied?

You can instantly see how many times your content has been copied. It tracks text and images breaking it down page by page.

copy and paste tracking

As you can see I have URL copy tracking disabled.

If you look at the top 5 at the bottom – it’s amazing to see just how many times people have copied text/images in the last 30 days!

Website Traffic

Tynt has helped to bring a total of 417 unique visitors and 492 page views to the blog. That alone is worth the 60 seconds work it took to setup!

You can get more detailed statistics showing you which posts brought the most Tynt based traffic.

increase traffic to your website free with tynt

You can dive a little deeper and get more detailed statistics about each page.

Just click on the page you want to learn more about-

traffic details

This will also tell you where the traffic has come from. Check out this live example from BlackHatWorld.

Twitter Traffic

You can also get statistics on how the automatically inserted link to your Twitter/Facebook profiles performed.

social media traffic

In the past 30 days I have had 47 extra visitors to my Twitter profile through other peoples copy/pasting efforts!

How To Increase Backlinks To Your Website

Tynt has also detected 10 new backlinks due to copy/pasting in the last 30 days.

how to increase backlinks with Tynt

The only problem with this is someone has to click the link to your site from the linking page in order for Tynt to detect a new backlink has been created.

So this isn’t the most reliable metric and the actual number of created backlinks is more than reported as not all of them will get clicked.

Inbound & Outbound Keywords

This is one of the coolest features of Tynt in my opinion. It shows you which keywords were used to not only bring people to your site, but also to leave your site.

Knowing which terms/phrases your users are copying to search for more information on is a gold mine!

outbound keywords

Pay attention to the keywords on the right hand side here. These are the terms people are highlighting on your site to search for more information.

The Majestic SEO & SEO Spyglass ones suggest I need to create reviews for those tools.

Where as the ahrefs (free/paid) – 11,227 & backlinkwatch (free) – 1,517 keywords are actually headers from this article telling me I need to make those headers links.

The backlink checkers one is another good example. I have a post all about that subject so I need to go back and add an internal link to that post!

Hopefully your seeing just how useful that is – just a shame they only show data from the past 24 hours :(

Wrapping It Up

Tynt is free for anyone to use and helps you get the most out of your traffic.

It takes less than 60 seconds to setup and you only have to do it once, its set & forget.

I set it up a few months ago and in the past 30 days alone I was able to-

  • Get an extra 417 new unique visitors
  • Get 47 visitors to my Twitter profile
  • Get 10 new backlinks
  • Find out what my users want
  • Learn how to improve the blog

Not a bad investment of time huh?

WARNING: Steal Your Competitors Search Rankings, Traffic & Income

The Only Problem

When I first deployed Tynt I was worried it would annoy some readers, but luckily I haven’t had a single complaint about it.

The one person it does annoy though is me.

When I publish a post I often copy/paste the title into social media updates, newsletters, updating signatures in forums and so on.

But when I do that it automatically adds in the link to the post and my Twitter profile which gets annoying.

So as long as you can put up with that – then you have got nothing to worry about and you can instantly increase traffic to your website free with Tynt.

    Very cool, I’ll have to give that a try.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for sharing Matthew!

    I was going to ask you how you did that, because I noticed it pasted the URL when I copied and pasted your content list for the Tiered Link Building process. :)

    It’s also kind of handy for your readers because it helps remind them where they obtained the info, should they want to revisit the post or page.

    All the best,

    Matt

      Ahhh I hadn’t actually thought of it like that and it might be doing users a favour by including the source =D

      • October 22nd, 2013 at 2:16 pm

        It is definitely a feature

  3. 10.21.2013

    Awesome write up! I’m going to have to check out Tynt. I’ve seen blogs and sites using something similar (or maybe even Tynt), but never looked to see how they were doing it. Very cool :)

  4. 10.21.2013

    I’ve seen that used a lot – specifically on major media sites. I find it quite annoying personally, but I’ve never specifically stopped visiting a site because of it.

    I always wondered what company it was that provided that service. What’s Tynt’s monetization strategy? Do you see any possibility that they will make this a paid service soon?

    • October 22nd, 2013 at 9:16 am

      Hi,

      Yeah it can be annoying but im hoping the annoyance level is at a minimum. Rather this than a stinking opt in pop up anyway!

      Tynt has been around for years now so I’m not sure what they are planning!

  5. 10.21.2013

    Great tutorial. I’m one who has copied and pasted some of your content and did notice this little neat trick – thanks for sharing!

  6. 10.21.2013

    An awesome tip. I will follow now. How do you create file pdf for this post?

  7. 10.21.2013

    Wow Matt, excellent post, well done. This is the secret of top bloggers. I’m not talking about Tynt. I’m talking about more powerful stuff. It is power of discovering something brilliant and then sharing it on the blog. This posts people love most. If you discover something great and if I love it, I would be very happy to share it with my friends and collegues.

    I should probably head over to Tynt now, to set up my account and see what will happen then.

    Thank you for this Matt.

    • October 22nd, 2013 at 9:13 am

      Hi,

      Well what I’m pretty good at is extracting the most value out of any given situation and this is just an extension of that :)

      Its not huge traffic numbers/backlinks – but its more than without ^^

    “Due to platform limitations, you cannot use Tynt on WordPress sites that are hosted on wordpress.com.”

    well that’s disappointing…. :-(

    • October 22nd, 2013 at 9:12 am

      I wouldn’t waste time building out a site that matters on wordpress.com anyway for the sake of cost of hosting/domains these days.

  9. 10.21.2013

    I heard about Tynt a few months back and its been on the list of things I should look into for a few of my larger content websites.

    Reading this post, Matthew, has really given me the urge to push it to the top of the todo list and get it installed!

    I have a lot of people copying parts of my content to forums, blogs and some tweets but generally I don’t get the link back, mention or the link will be broken and lead to a 404. So it really sounds like Tynt will help me with all of that.

    • October 21st, 2013 at 7:52 pm

      Yeah its great for all of that – and the fact its so quick and easy to install, its almost rude not to :)

  10. 10.21.2013

    Hi Matthew,

    Great tool you have shared here. Nice way to capitalize on another aspect of creating good content. Just wish there was a way to always get the back link and take away for the ability of the copier to remove it.

  11. 10.21.2013

    Awesome stuff! thank you for sharing the info on Tynt, it’s a brilliant tool.
    Cheers!

  12. 10.21.2013

    Wow, that title was a bit hype, until I’ve read the post, till the bottom.

    Tynt. I’ve used it before. I can vouch for its impressive results.

    I guess I’ll have to re-consider it, however, not all blogs work.

    For example, I have some plugins on most of my niche blogs which protect the content from being copied. Tynt doesn’t work with these plugins, as far as I know.

    Hey Matthew, I wonder if these extra 417 new unique visitors helped in terms of sales or clients. Did you track that?

    • October 21st, 2013 at 7:51 pm

      Hi John,

      I think the title delivered :)

      I was going to go with How To Send Your Traffic Into Overdrive And Get More Backlinks Than You Can Shake A Stick At In 60 Seconds Or Less ^^

      I can’t figure out a way to track that traffic directly because there are no redirects inplace and analytics doesn’t record the # references. I also checked if Aweber recorded them in the HTTP_Referer but no dice there either!

      You could probably code a custom analytics event that regisers a user defined value, but I suck at coding 😛

  13. 10.21.2013

    That is a very smart tool. Thanks!

  14. 10.21.2013

    Awesome post Mat :) I have had this in the back of my mind for sometime and was going to do some searches to see if a tool like this exists. Thanks for doing the “digging” :)

  15. 10.21.2013

    d***, this is good s***! What’s the quality of the links you’ve picked up? All I get is scraper sites linking back to my blog using hundreds of sitewide links, all with the same anchor text.

    -Casey

  16. 10.21.2013

    Thanks for the tutorial Matt, I installed it 😀

  17. 10.21.2013

    Great share Matt,

    I was only looking the other day for a tool like this! I’ve created my account and installed the script, will give it a whirl.

    – Lewis :)

  18. 10.21.2013

    wow thanks for sharing buddy.

  19. 10.21.2013

    I used to use Tynt too, but found it annoying. It can get you an extra bit of traffic, but I doubt any links built through the service are going to carry much weight.

    • October 22nd, 2013 at 9:09 am

      Well thats the great unknown – they can get pasted anywhere!

  20. 10.21.2013

    re: “the only problem”

    You can actually ‘opt-out’ of Tynt at the browser level here:-
    tynt.com/opt_out.php

    So you can effectively turn it off just for yourself (it’s a blanket ‘all sites using Tynt’ though rather than just your own though).

    • October 22nd, 2013 at 9:08 am

      Apart from as an internet marketer I clear my cookies a gazillion times a day 😛

  21. 10.22.2013

    Did my comment get caught in the spam filter?

  22. 10.22.2013

    Ah, so that’s how it’s done haha!

    Hadn’t seen Tynt before :) I’ve gone and set it up on my blog as well now, thank you kind sir #HatTip

  23. 10.22.2013

    Seems to be great tool but is it safe with Google Adsense? I just got my Hosted Adsense Account that running on my site. Please clear me…

    Thanks

  24. 10.22.2013

    Awesome Matthew!
    I think Tynt can be helpful and at the same time you only need a matter of seconds to install it. Now that is easy! So far I haven’t think of using Tynt before, but now I think it would be a great advantage!
    Thank you for sharing such good information!
    I found and “kingged” this on the Internet marketing social site Kingged.com

  25. 10.22.2013

    Awesome Tool.. I will definitely try this!!!

    Thanks Mat :)

  26. 10.22.2013

    Nice. But I am worried about scrapers taking the content and spraying it all across the web and penguin s******* things up bcoz we have links from all sorts of places.

    • October 22nd, 2013 at 9:04 am

      Scrapers will do that anyway =/ Not a whole lot you can do about it

  27. 10.22.2013

    Thanks for sharing! I’m going to set this up for some of my sites and see how it does. I’m wondering how many people just delete the link that it adds, though. I would think that if some random extra text showed up when people paste what they copied then they would just delete it.

    I guess I’ll just have to try it for myself and find out! haha

    • October 22nd, 2013 at 9:03 am

      Yeah there is that possiblity – if your only copying a short sentence you’ll probably notice but anything longer probably not.

      As long as its bringing traffic =D

  28. 10.22.2013

    Great post Matt, will certainly look further into using Tynt. Think even I can copy and paste.
    Steve.

  29. 10.22.2013

    Hi,

    This line “Tynt is a free service that helps you hardness the power of copy/pasting once and for all!” just under the heading “Introducing Tynt”, should the word be hardness or harness?

    Cheers.

  30. 10.22.2013

    Hey Matt,

    thanks for keeping the good info coming; although I’d like to hear your take on newest Penguin update and it’s connection to Web 2.0’s.

    To stay on topic, I added the script to my site and I can’t work around that unique # reference – it keeps showing, even though I followed your instructions. First I though it has something to do with WPEngine, as they don’t allow a lot of stuff. Then I remembered that you use them as well :)

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    • October 22nd, 2013 at 8:59 am

      Hi,

      Make sure address bar tracking is turned off then wait for a few hours and clear WPEngine caches.

      Tynt seems to take a while to update the settings =\

    if I put the code on ‘home page’, will it work for other pages of my site? do I need different code for different domain or I use the same code in all domain ?

    Thanks for sharing this post

    • October 22nd, 2013 at 8:58 am

      Hi,

      Each site will require a seperate Tynt account

  32. 10.22.2013

    I have Tynt set up on some older sites but kind of forgot about it! Pretty silly of me not to have it the sites I really am working hard on!

    Thanks for the reminder.

    • October 23rd, 2013 at 1:56 pm

      Check out your stats be interesting to see how its performed for you!

  33. 10.22.2013

    Nice review of what looks like a pretty good service. I’m off to install it on my blog right now :-)

    Be interesting to see how many copy/pastes you get on this very post from your ‘try it out’ call to action. I certainly did!

    • October 23rd, 2013 at 1:55 pm

      haha hadn’t thought of that – 210 so far :)

      • October 28th, 2013 at 3:07 pm

        Ended up installing it on Friday and just logged in to have a shifty at the stats for the weekend. Surprising amount of copies and it also says I have picked up an ‘SEO link’ in the process.

        Thanks again for sharing!

  34. Jackiekellegher
    10.22.2013

    Looks great! The only issue I would have is that the links would look pretty ugly embedded in the middle of an article.

  35. 10.22.2013

    Its seems like an awesome tool. I am just learning of it but I will try it to see if it really works as has been described.

    I have shared this comment in kingged.com where this post was found.

  37. 10.22.2013

    Hey Matthew,

    Another awesome post! I read your blog everyday and its like a religion for me for all the awesome things you teach about SEO.

    I see you are coming out with a new product. Can you give any details about it? And when will it be released?

    • October 23rd, 2013 at 1:49 pm

      Thanks very much :)

      The only details I can reveal is it will be free ^^

  38. 10.22.2013

    Wow, Matt.

    What an awesome and powerful tool. I’ve seen Tynt in action before but I didn’t know what it was. Now I do and I’ll def have to give it a try.

    Thanks for sharing this cool info with us. :)

    Ti

  39. Awesome post as usual Matt :)

    I did not heard about Tynt before but it looks like an awesome tool.I will start using it on some of my niche sites.

    Thanks for letting us know about Tynt.

  40. 10.24.2013

    Excellent tip and amazing tool. I will copy you and use Tynt.
    Thank you !!!

  41. 10.25.2013

    Strange I just tried copying the text from this page to word, outlook, msn live & google etc. I do not see the link.

  42. 10.27.2013

    Great share Matt! Going to definitely use this!

    Yours loyal fan

    Walt :)

  43. 10.28.2013

    I am already using it for more than 1 year on one of my sites and it really helps in getting etra traffic and links. I got around 1300 links because of tynt.

  44. eZFlow
    10.29.2013

    Great little trick! However it always adds the Address Bar Tracking on my site I made the standard account with. Later I created a rollup account so you can add multiple domains and those dont display the tracking in the url.

    You can create the rollup account in account settings. Anyone else with this issue?

    • October 31st, 2013 at 7:53 am

      I have found it takes around 12 hours for your settings changes to take effect, I just change them and then clear caches next morning and voila!

  46. 11.2.2013

    A quick question:
    I am building links from social networks, blogger.com andservices like twellow and twittercounter. And I’ve yet to see any of them arrive at ahrefs.com!

    Whats the problem? The links are dofollow, hasn’t ahrefs found them yet? It’s been a couple of weeks…

    • November 5th, 2013 at 10:51 am

      Hi,

      I would assume they haven’t found them yet – the internets a big place you know 😛

      • November 8th, 2013 at 9:06 am

        Yeah, I guess so.

        What do you think, Matt, should I use any pinging services to accelerate the indexing of these links?

        Thanks and keep up your great blog,
        Maxim

        • November 10th, 2013 at 12:45 pm

          I tend not to use pinging services and just build links to things to get them indexed

  47. 11.4.2013

    Hi Matt,

    I started using Tynt about two months ago…it’s a great little tool that is easy to use.

    As you mentioned once you copy and paste the code into your WordPress site it does all the work for you. There’s absolutely no reason not to use it.

    Your tutorials will help me better read the stats from it. Thanks very much for sharing, have a great day.

    • November 5th, 2013 at 10:33 am

      Nice to hear its helping – how much traffic/links has it brought for you?

  48. Wow, Matthew, very nice tool. I am going to try this out at my website. It probably does not work at wordpress dot com sites like my blog. Thanks for this cool device.

    • November 10th, 2013 at 12:39 pm

      Yeah you can use it on both of those platforms, they provide instructions in the back end.

    Hi Matt! 😀

    After reading your post i gave the try with Tynt in one of my blogs and it DID WORK! (actually all the stuff that I read from your blog does work LOL) In about one week I had few shares and one very good backlink from somebody that copied my content to his website.

    So today I have implemented Tynt in 6 of my blogs… Will give you feedback on this after a couple of weeks.

    Thanks a lot for the post mate!

    Cheers

    • November 14th, 2013 at 12:46 pm

      Thats great to hear :) Let us know how you get on with the other blogs ^^

  51. 11.23.2013

    Matt,

    If you still need help with your problem, let me know and I can sort you out. I believe I can show you how to not have the functionality affect you when you cut and paste from your own site. And no, it doesn’t involve cookies. It is a more permanent solution.

  52. 11.27.2013

    Hi, Great tip, but i really don´t know how good or bad that can be for SEO, you don´t really know who is linking back to you, what kind of neighborhood your site is going to be linked from, and also if so many people is copying/pasting your content, you better bet they will not attribute the content to you, anyway, is a great idea to know what people is doing in your website, how are they behaving, and the best, track, track everything you can.
    Thanks
    BTW, i just voted for you, you are ahead by several votes! congs,!!!

    • December 1st, 2013 at 1:13 pm

      You can probably assume a link generated from a manual copy/paste is going to be of higher quality than a scraper site

      Thanks for the votes!

  53. 12.3.2013

    Will this also put in links when some scraping tools pick them up for spam? If yes, that could prove to be counterproductive these days.

    • December 4th, 2013 at 10:52 am

      No because it uses Javascript and scraping tools wont respect that :)

  54. 12.19.2013

    I was often wondering how a major news website was doing this and I never really poked my head into it. Silly me.

    Cheers for this post.

  55. I use Linux and love the copy/paste alternative it uses. You just select the text to copy it and then you paste it with middle mouse button. That is also why I like my Lenovo Thinkpad laptop – it has middle button on the trackpad.
    I tried this on your page and Tynt doesn’t catch me copying text. But for majority of visitors it’s a nice tool.
    Thanks for advice

    I downloaded the pdf by sharing this article on my twitter. Thanks for sharing such kind information for free.

    Great insight, will defo try it out on some of my accounts. will be interesting to see

    Great job Thank you M. I tested copying of images but it does not provide any links

      Well I suppose it would create an image link if they used the original URL

  62. 3.8.2014

    I am the first visitor of your site , but it is more proud able thing is that i always learn something good from your blog.really it is very nice to read.
    thanks for this kind info.

    Hey Matt – Awesome article as always. This is really powerful and I have been looking for something like this for a while. I don’t mind if people copy my stuff, as long as I get credit and or a link back.

    good stuff!

  64. 5.28.2014

    Ahhhhh! I got all excited, signed up, then realised you can’t do it if your site is hosted on WordPress.com – upsetting.

    Great post, though!

    • May 28th, 2014 at 3:31 pm

      Yeah that is very restricting indeed, I would move it personally

  65. 6.21.2014

    Really smart strategy. I enjoyed reading your post very much.tweet….

    Hey, Matt,
    That’s all cool, but alas tynt doesn’t support Cyrillic (and i suppose other non-English) domain names. Do you happen to have an alternative that does support unicode domain names?

  67. 8.20.2014

    Slightly off topic here Matt, but you seem to have spam comments on here (jitu, Mohinder as examples) with their (spammy) websites under their names. Do these links out damage your site in Big G’s eyes? Even if they’re ‘no follow’?

    • August 21st, 2014 at 3:50 pm

      Well search traffic is always increasing but it is on my list to clean up :)

    Hello Matt,
    its very cool i am giving it a try. thanks for sharing :)

    Just checked. When I copy/paste a piece of your content there’s read more: http… so still working. Nice! They improved tracking?

    • October 8th, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      To be honest I’ve not really checked in on it that much, just let it do its thing!

    Hi Matt,

    Great tool thanks for highlighting it, I’ve put it in my notes of a long line of stuff to be researched haha! That’s the problem when you keep giving great advice :)

    I was wondering what your thoughts on the risks of this tool were though in relation to Google? Copied content with a followed link back could look like syndication ezine style if a big enough pattern is created?

    Thanks,
    Pete.

    • November 7th, 2014 at 3:08 pm

      No need to put it on a long list, takes a couple of minutes to setup.

      I’ve not had any Google issue myself and my content gets copied a lot.

      • November 7th, 2014 at 3:25 pm

        Thanks Matt, I will get it installed when I’m back at the desk on Monday.

        Both you and Matthew Barby gave the same answer with regards to copied content with a link back (not kw anchor of course) so I reckon that’s safe enough for me haha!

        Cheers,
        Pete.

    It is a great tool and it can be so useful but sometimes it gets a bit annoying. For example when you try to copy part of your content in order to paste it somewhere else.

    Anyway, looking at your stats it looks it can provide good numbers :-). I have one question about it; does it work with those automatic scripts that publish your content from the RSS? Would it include the link on those copied post as well?

    Thanks for your content as always!

    • November 11th, 2014 at 10:30 pm

      Yeah that is annoying but I can live with it for the benefit it offers :)

      Yes you could do that with RSS

    Sounds interesting, I’ve never heard of this before.

    I’ll try and set it up tonight.

    Thanks Matthew.

  73. 12.19.2014

    I did this a while ago and I’m pretty sure that the script affected my site’s speed and performance, but again, I’m not exactly sure as it was a while ago.

    Anyway, this is only an effective strategy for certain scenarios. For example, in your case, lots of your traffic/audience comes from and participates in “forums” – and when it comes to forums, a general rule is to reference the site of where you got the content from. As you know, this type of behavior is common at the forums, thus making this a good strategy if lots of your traffic/audience are forum-ers.

    • December 19th, 2014 at 3:50 pm

      It’s a very very lightweight piece of javascript so it’s unlikely to have had an impact on load time but I would advise you to test it.

      My site is pretty fast and has a whole bunch of external calls beyond this

  74. 1.22.2015

    I think it’s great that the link to the source article is in the copy/paste but the promotion of your twitter account is annoying:P No worries, I’ll cut it out.

  75. I ALWAYS WONDERED HOW YOU WERE DOING THAT!!! Thanks Matt, awesome, awesome info as always. I am one of that 4.3% by the way lol. Thanks buddy.

    Hi Matthew,

    Value as always. This is being implemented right now. It will be interesting to find out how much of my work is going elsewhere, uncredited!
    I’m pushing your SEO competition too and getting some positive feed back on that.
    Regards,

    Time to skim-read = < 5 minutes

    Time to implement = < 5 minutes

    Done. Installed, set up, tweaked. Set. Forget (ish).

    Many thanks for letting me know about Tynt. That is now implemented.

      No problem :)

        I particularly like the fact that it sends an email each month with the summary of the reports, which acts as a reminder to go check the online reports, to see what has been copied in the last month

    Great piece of software. Thank you, Matthew.

    Hey Mat,

    I really like the idea of this tool. But when I copy some of your text from an article, there’s no backlink generated.
    Does some browser block these kind of scripts or do I have an extension which is blocking it?

    Greetings

    • June 4th, 2015 at 2:26 pm

      Its because I deployed a new theme recently and haven’t integrated a few scripts yet

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for this interesting post. I tried to copy and paste a part of this article and didn’t get the reference. It seems that you stop to use this app? Is that right?
    If yes, is that because you found problems using it? Thanks for sharing your experience.

    • November 9th, 2015 at 11:37 am

      When I rolled out the new theme design I forgot to take care of this and to this day I have still forgotten but I will be readding it :)

  85. 11.11.2015

    Hi Matt, I am a new follower of your blog and I have spent a lot of time reading your articles that interest me.
    But this tool seems to have been around for awhile now..?
    I am really surprised that I was unaware of it till now.
    Thank you very much for sharing this information. I have got to get it on my sites fast..?
    You are doing a great job, I have started to implement some of the tips that you have suggested for promoting and increasing traffic to my sites.
    Cheers, Patrick.
