At the basal of anniversary article, you can put a hotlink (sometimes two) to locations that will a lot of account you. I had one commodity that was aggregate over the web 3,200 times. Every time anyone apprehend one of my online writing and got to the basal of the page they would apprehend the “About the Author” area which had a Hotlink to my web page.
This is an archetype of what that looked like.
