Step 7: Incoming Links
There are some sites that you can submit your Instructable to yourself and will help. These include:
- Your own website or blog.
By consistently publishing well written and interesting Instructables you will gain a group of followers using Instructable's subscribe features. Every time you publish an Instructable, an email will go out to them and if you're lucky some of these subscribers will have blogs or Facebook/twitter accounts of their own they might repost a link to. The more you have the greater the chances of someone being impressed enough to pass it on.
Possibly the best way to get good quality incoming links to your Instructable is to submit a tip to relevant websites or blogs. If your Instructable is well written with a catchy picture, there's a good chance that their readers will be interested too. Many websites specialise in collating interesting projects from their readers.
Remember, if you make it easier for the authors of blogs/websites to repost your content, they're more likely to. Include a brief description that's not just copied and pasted from your Instructable as well as a link and maybe even a picture and it gives them a good idea of what its about and makes it easier for them to get excited about it.
