For a very long time, until recently, I was always sceptical about social networking sites such as Linked In.
However I discovered that these types of sites are powerful and free ways of giving your web site and blog additional search engine fodder.
For example, on LinkedIn you can add 3 url’s to your profile and if you optimise them enough, they can provide you with excellent back links to your own web site.
So in addition to being a great way to network with others, its also a handy tool for some free backlinks.
