PR6 backlink from Apple.com

Okay so after my post on my favorite WordPress plugins I have received several emails on developing an iPhone application for blogs and submitting the app to apple. So I am briefly going to explain how this works.

The first thing you have to do is sign up as an Apple Developer. That’s a pretty painless process. You don’t have to sign up for one of the expensive memberships. Just sign up as a free member and you will be good to go.

Okay now your an “Apple Developer”. Here’s the funny thing… YOUR REALLY NOT HAHAHAHAHA… okay enough of that… If you have a wordpress plugin you can grab the plugin that I mentioned in the original post.  The plugin is called WPtouch iPhone. This plugin is FREE and best of all you don’t have to do anything but install it and activate it. WOOT easy peasy.

Okay once thats installed you basically just have to go in to your apple developer account and submit a new iPhone webapp. Now if you don’t have a webapp you can get one developed for you from an oDesk person.  You won’t need anything but a Web Designer and a simple CSS-HTML or PHP coder. Nothing too extensive.  There are specifications for an iPhone friendly website.

Anyways, you can see the CashTactics web app by visiting apple.com/webapps/news. Scroll down to about 14 or something. Not bad for a PR 6 link and 700+ extra visitors the first day up.  Seems to bring in an extra 150 visitors everyday which isn’t too shabby at all for one link.

Here’s the link to the actual app page on apple.

Any questions please post them here or in the Discussion Forum.

Yeah Shoemoney and John Chow ain’t got nothin’ on me! I’m an Apple Developer… HAHAHA

great stuff kris im gona have to do this with one of my sites.
thanks again for the helpful information!


October 24, 2008

Great “tips”! Thx :)


October 24, 2008

The only thing is, it is a PR6 page, but the link is not direct. So, although you will still get extra traffic, I dont think it will help with seo?

Not sure though


October 24, 2008

it’s a good idea.thanks for the advice


October 24, 2008

You’re right, Robot Boy. The link on the PR6 page is not to this blog but to the web app’s page on apple.com. There is a link on the app’s page, but that page has no PR and the link is a 302 redirect, not a direct link.

Still, 150 visitors/day from a single (free) link is phenomenal. I bet the majority of bloggers don’t have that kind of daily traffic from all their sources combined.


October 24, 2008

The search engines should follow that link straight through, even though it’s not “direct”. I could be mistaken but I’m fairly certain that’s the way it works.

Kris, great tips. I’m not sure why I’m higher than you on that page unless they just go by most recent, but I do appreciate the tip!


October 24, 2008

That link will still be good for backlinks. It shows up in my wordpress dashboard as a trackback which tells me that google will look at it as well as a link partner.

@Monty- Because yours is newer you get priority. It’s a pretty exciting backlink to get!


October 24, 2008

Nice tip, I hope that A*pple does not find about this and starts making all out bound links NOFOLLOW.


October 24, 2008

Nice and good tipp.

Thanks for the tip. Direct link or not, additional traffic is something I’m always interested in.

Took your advice and downloaded the WP plug-in, tested it using the Firefox user agent switcher, signed up to be an Apple Developer. Now I’m stuck, how do I submit my site?

I did this all while I was eating breakfast before I left for work, so if it’s real clear, that’s how I missed it.

Thanks in advance.

You are awesome. Great idea.

OK, I feel stupid now. Went back to the site http://www.apple.com/webapps/news/ and I see a link on the right side of the page labeled, “Submitting Applications”.

Doh!


October 24, 2008

Oh ho ho, this is so evil, yet so awesome. Thanks!

November 14, 2008

I’m going to have to nominate this for the best tip of the month… I’m certainly going to have to look into this. Certainly some great out-of-the-box thinking. Lets just hope they keep the links dofollow.
