Have you heard about ping.fm, pixelpipe and hellotxt? Maybe some of you heard of Ping.fm before but never use it as it is troublesome to setup the account and take every single post to republish via Ping.fm.For those of you have no idea what I am talking about, don’t worry because I will walk you through the basics and the concept to gain authority backlinks to every single post you published. You can even syndicate existing posts to the authority sites with the trick I am going to show you!
What are Ping.fm, Pixelpipe, Hellotxt?

Challenge Facing In the Past
I know some people might already knew the sources I mentioned but there are mainly 3 challenges facing by them:
1. Account creation
To be honest, it is such a tedious task that will really takes you hours from start to finish. Let’s say you are a super tech savvy guy and you only need to spend 5 minutes to create an account (this is considered fast because you need to fill in the detail, verify the email and also link the username and password into Pixelpipe), for 40 accounts, you need 200 minutes or at least 3 hours just to create and link the account for Pixelpipe.
I know a lot of people actually give up because of the tedious and time wasting process. When I first started, I did create all the Onlywire accounts myself and I know the PAIN!
2. 302 Backlink Redirect
Even you manage to create all these accounts, you can’t really enjoy the benefit of authority backlinks to your post. Why? It is because Pixelpipe, Ping.fm and Hellotxt actually using 302 backlink redirect so the link juice is not passed to your site.
3. Time Consuming Posting
Every time you need to take you blog post, copy and paste the content to Pixelpipe, Ping.fm and Hellotxt. This is boring and time consuming too.
Sounds familiar? Don’t worry, I got you cover below!
