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

What if I told you that in less than 60 seconds you can increase traffic to your website.

And at the same time, build new backlinks without lifting a finger?

Well: Today I am going to show you exactly how to do that!

And best of all?

 This method is 100% free!
All you need to be able to do is copy and paste – it really is that simple.

What You Will Learn

  • How to increase traffic to your website free of charge
  • How to build new backlinks automatically
  • How to improve your content
  • My personal results when I implemented this strategy

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 website 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…

135,656 page views has seen content leave my site 5,762 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, is more often than not they don’t 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 33Across

33Across (formerly known as 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 reports.

33across 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, 33Across 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-

33across paste demo

You’ll notice it has automatically added a unique link to the post, optionally you could also automatically add a link to your Twitter profile or Facebook page as well.

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 33Across Is Easy

Just sign up for a free 33Across account.

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

Make sure you are installing the SiteCTRL script

33across script

They provide instructions for most platforms including Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr & Joomla.

Once you have added the code jump back to 33Across and test the installation. If your using a caching plugin, don’t forget to clear caches first!

script test

Once you’ve done that the installation is complete!

33Across is now up and running =D

Tinkering With 33Across

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

There are a few options for you to configure here so I’m just going to show you how I have it setup.

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-

attribution settings

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

This is the only 33Across 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 33Across 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 33Across 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 33Across!

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.

what is being copied report

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

33Across has helped to bring a total of 376 unique visitors and 492 page views to the blog in the last 30 days.

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 33Across based traffic.

traffic from 33across

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 as well.

Social Traffic

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

social 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

33Across has also detected 8 new backlinks due to copy/pasting in the last 30 days.

33across new backlinks

The only problem with this is someone has to click the link to your site from the linking page in order for 33Across 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 33Across 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!

33across 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 created a case study to find the best backlink checker 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 :(

The Only Problem

When I first deployed 33Across (formerly known as 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.

However if you go into settings and scroll to the bottom you can use the local opt out feature to stop that from happening.

Wrapping It Up

33Across 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 originally set it up in October 2013 and in the past 30 days alone I was able to-

  • Get an extra 492 new unique visitors
  • Get 47 visitors to my Twitter profile
  • Get 8 new backlinks
  • Find out what my users want
  • Learn how to improve the blog

Not a bad investment of time huh?  And it’s 100% free!

    Tynt’s copy and paste tracking and backlink support is really useful feature for many bloggers to grow their site traffic.

    This is incredibly clever Matthew. Sometimes we find ourselves working too hard to get backlinks. If you paste copied content that link pops up for you; good deal.

    I may try this on Quora for much easier linking because folks there are always looking for strong follow up resources to better understand the answers to your questions.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Matthew, Great article – However, I would have thought that when someone’s copy pasting your content, they would also delete the link that gets put in ? In that case, it would not show in the stats, am I right?

    Excellent post with full of information. I will definately try out Tynt to see how it works and who are going to copy my content.

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 12:28 pm

      You mean 33Across :P Not Tynt ^^

  66. BeLuckyInLove

    just installed the application BUT:

    when the other party does copy-paste and the referring link pops out in the end – it can still remove that link manually and post my work without the referring link! ! :(

    Or maybe I am missing something…

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 12:30 pm

      Yes it can be manually removed

  67. Deepak Kumar Das

    Many times i though how exactly it works and was with the expectation that this is kind of paid plugin or something, forgot about it. But you made it very simple and meaningful for us of how this exactly works.

    Just to tell you i got your post notification by email and i found almost all of them very tricky and useful stuffs to use as a SEO Marketer. You are doing great help to the SEO community and i would like you to be my Guru :)

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 12:32 pm

      Nope it is entirely free :) and you shouldn’t believe in Gurus, you should believe in hard work :)

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

    will it work for https wordpress sites

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 12:36 pm

      Yes :)

  70. Nafisul Islam

    Hi, Matthew,
    This is another good idea from you.
    But if we use the tool don’t you think we may also end up getting links from unwanted sites like poor/penalized blogs too?

    In my opinion those who copy paste information on their blog without giving credit to the source are more likely to be the owners of risky(duplicate) sites.

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 12:41 pm

      My experience is the more people that syndicate your content, the better – as long as your pegged as the original source!

      • Nafisul Islam
        April 4th, 2017 at 10:45 pm

        Thanks buddy,
        Your comment now gives me confident :)

    Does this work if your site has an SSL cert? Tynt didn’t work on my site when I went with SSL.

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 12:41 pm

      Yeah just change the script to call https instead of http

      No worrys Tylor

  75. Matt


    Great article and showing how to track the results! Quick question: If I were to use a service like Snip.ly when sharing authoritative articles on social media – since it permits the call to action button to drive some of the readers back to my desired landing page – then is there any way to generate backlinks from those efforts? The 33Across (Tynt) is a great way to drive visitors & backlinks from blog posts which were my own content; but I wanted to know if there is anything you recommend for doing the same when sharing helpful/authoritative 3rd party content such as when using Snip.ly or similar service?

    Keep up the great work!

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 12:44 pm

      Hmmm I’m not sure but you should try it because chaining those would be great

  76. Chibuzor Aguwa

    every single blog post of yours is worth reading, i must say a big thank you to my friend that directed me to your blog. Henceforth i will be a dedicated reader, but first of all let me try and build some backlinks form the steps you gave.

      April 4th, 2017 at 12:46 pm

      No problem Mark :)

  78. Ten Softwares

    Thanks, Mathew for sharing this useful tool, I have a question. Is it useful in case of Content scraping? as bot used there are now more intelligent. Our site ranking was destroyed due to this. Some spammer used hacked sites copied our content and does some cloaking etc and got all of our ranking. 100 posts from our blog in which 2 are top posts and round about 10 are on first page. When we loose our ranking we think it was Fred update(Google’s Algorithm update of March 2017) but it was content scrappers.

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 12:48 pm

      What else have you done to determine it was content scraping causing the problem?

      • Ten Softwares
        April 4th, 2017 at 2:49 pm

        We checked in Google Search results and In “Links to Your Site” section of Google Webmaster Tools(verified a lot of scrapers from there). We also checked all our links in SERPs where scrapers site are indexed but our links are de-indexed. In security Plugins a lot of spam bots most of them known to be scrapers bots were also identified and blocked. But our ownership of content in Google’s court is still an issue.
        Note: Scrapers are using hacked domains to index our content with the help of cloaking.
        Solution Mr Matt?

        • Matthew Woodward
          April 14th, 2017 at 7:32 pm

          Is your domain recognised as the original source?

          • Ten Softwares
            April 15th, 2017 at 10:42 am

            In some links we have ownership but some posts are totally de-indexed. And scrapers posts are indexed.

  79. Louie Luc

    Wow! :) I remember this tool back when it was still named Tynt.

    I actually ended up disabling it just because it annoyed me like crazy (the same thing you say annoys you — glad to know there’s a workaround)!

    (And I also hated the fact that people were stealing my images! Not knowing what’s being stolen is better for your mental health, lol. =) )

    Thanks for reminding me of Tynt (now 33Across — weirdest name, btw), Matthew. I think I’ll give it another go.


    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 12:49 pm

      Hahaha yeah, you see the trick is to be really really bad at Photoshop and then no one will steal your images. Works great for me :)

  80. Alex

    Great tool and thanks for the article. Looks like I’m too late to the Tynt party, they’ve been taken over by a website filled with more corporate jargon than I’ve ever seen in my life. Can’t find the service you described sadly.

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 4th, 2017 at 1:05 pm

      Tynt is now called 33Across

  85. Convify

    My personal experience is that people delete the links from copied content. But I think there will be instances when they don’t care and paste and publish without removing the link.
    I would like to give it a try for sure. Thanks for sharing the tool Matthew.
    Is tynt ust a free tool or there is a limited free version?

    • Matthew Woodward
      August 15th, 2016 at 12:23 pm

      That’s not always the case, and the dashboard shows you the traffic you get via those links.

      This is a free tool

    They’we moved over to 33across.com, though it’s powered by the same system, some menus have changed here and there, but it’s basically the same system. Long time ago I used to have a whos.among.us widget which offered some of tyn’ts functionality. I’m glad to see they’ve evolved.

    • Matthew Woodward

      Yes nothing has really changed and if you already have the code on your site you dont need to do anything

    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?


    • Matthew Woodward
      June 4th, 2015 at 2:26 pm

    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.

    • Matthew Woodward
      January 22nd, 2015 at 3:12 pm

      I think thats an option you can disable

  101. Darrel Andrews

    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.

    • Matthew Woodward
      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

  102. The Guy

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

    I’ll try and set it up tonight.

    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!

    • Matthew Woodward
      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

  104. @1petemcallister

    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?


    • Matthew Woodward
      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.

      • @1petemcallister
        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!


  105. I. C. Daniel

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

    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’?

    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?

    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.

    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.
    BTW, i just voted for you, you are ahead by several votes! congs,!!!

    • Matthew Woodward
      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!

  123. Ian Chapman


    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.

    Hi Matt! :D

    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.

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

  128. Maxim

    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…

    • Matthew Woodward
      November 5th, 2013 at 10:51 am


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

        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,

        • Matthew Woodward
          November 10th, 2013 at 12:45 pm

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

    I like to read your post onmy phone. But the subscribe. Bix keeps popping up blocking the view. Can you fix that? Thanks for the great artucle. (Obviously I already subscribed)

      Will take a look thanks!

  130. eZFlow

    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?

    • Matthew Woodward

      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!

  131. Agent Black hat

    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.

    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.

  136. Ti Roberts

    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. :)

    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?

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 23rd, 2013 at 1:49 pm

      Thanks very much :)

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

  138. Martina McKeough

    Something that I haven’t heard of before but will go away now and do more research to see how useful it is to me in my niche.

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 23rd, 2013 at 1:50 pm

      Let me know how you get on with it!

  139. Sunday

    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.

  140. Jackiekellegher

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

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 23rd, 2013 at 1:50 pm

      It adds them to the end of the copy

  141. David McSweeney

    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!

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 23rd, 2013 at 1:55 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!

        • Matthew Woodward
          October 29th, 2013 at 12:34 pm

          Winning! Nice to hear its helping

  142. Forest Parks

    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.

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 23rd, 2013 at 1:56 pm

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

  143. kamruzzaman royal

    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

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 8:58 am


      Each site will require a seperate Tynt account

  144. Miroslav

    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?


    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 8:59 am


      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 =\

  145. Hameem


    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?


    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 9:00 am

      Nice spot, fixed thanks :)

  146. Patiocleaningkent

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

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 9:01 am

      You would be surprised how many cant ^^

  147. Charles Floate

    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

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 9:07 am

      We always be learnin =D

  148. Jen

    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

    • Matthew Woodward
      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

  149. vij

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

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 9:04 am

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

  150. Sagar Desai

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

    Thanks Mat :)

  151. floriefe may

    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

      October 22nd, 2013 at 9:06 am

      and its freeeeee =D

    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…

  154. Martin

    re: “the only problem”

    You can actually ‘opt-out’ of Tynt at the browser level here:-

    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).

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 9:08 am

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

  155. Takeshi Young

    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.

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 9:09 am

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

    Damn, this is good shit! 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.

      Mainly from forums and social media

    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?

    • Matthew Woodward
      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 :P

  163. Matthew

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

    • Matthew Woodward

      No worrys :)

  164. Dwight

    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.

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 9:11 am

      We can’t win them all =D

  165. Nathan Payne

    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.

    • Matthew Woodward
      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 :)

  166. lucasuk86

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

    well that’s disappointing…. :-(

    • Matthew Woodward
      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.

  167. Vukasin

    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.

  170. Chris Potter

    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?

    • Matthew Woodward
      October 22nd, 2013 at 9:16 am


      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!

  171. Luke

    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 :)

    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,
