Linkbuilding using HONGKIAT.com

Today’s hongkiat.com features tutorials or articles on Photoshop, HTML/CSS, WordPress, Design tools, Photography, Wallpapers, Freebies and more. Some of the contents you find here have been featured or referenced to by sites such as Huffpost, Lifehacker, Gizmodo, TheNextWeb and more.

There are different types of articles you could submit to HONGKIAT:

A) Articles

If you are aiming to submit an article, discussion, something that features more text than images:

  1. Please have an intro, a body and a conclusion.
  2. Subtitle your main point – then elaborate. [Example]
  3. Ensure that it is between 800 to 1000 words. (Seriously, do not make them reject a piece over this.)

B) Tutorials/tips

They love tutorials, although to make it reader-friendly, follow these few guidelines:

  1. Make them straight-to-the-point and under 100 steps. [Example]
  2. Include the demo link and/or download link where relevant. [Example]
  3. Credit your image sources or link back to the original site where you got the images from. [Example]

C) Showcases

A picture says a thousand words, so if you want to feature a showcase of awesome images or illustrations:

  1. Submit images in a separate zipped file and properly named e.g. "file-sharing-tools-minus".
  2. All images must be in the highest possible resolution. If they look awesome, that’s a plus.
  3. Credit your image sources and link back to the page the image was taken from. [Example]
  4. If it is a showcase featuring apps, tools or plugins etc, do include the download link. [Example]


Give your submission more leverage by

  • linking back to previously published hongkiat.com articles.
  • submitting in .html (although .doc files are still okay).
  • standardizing the width of images at 500px, 550px or 600px only.

All Done?

Linkbuilding using weblogs or news sites in general

Often you can submit your own story to weblogs or news websites. Bloggers are alway on the look for the next big story, and there is no reason why it should not be yours. Just keep in mind the following guidelines:

  • The owner of the weblog or news website is doing you a favor, so be polite
  • Be the first to bring news or write a truly new perspective on a subject
  • Make sure your story is spell-checked
  • Your story should fit in the general subject of the blog or website
  • Your story must be truly interesting to the audience of the weblog
  • Your text must be aligned with the tone of voice of the weblog

On some weblogs, owners ask money for a promotional blog. It is up to you how much you are willing to spend.
