Build Online Tools To Earn Free Backlinks

I had a client in the productivity niche who wanted to increase backlinks and organic traffic to his website. I suggested building an online tool related to his niche and promoting it on his site. Online tools are great for earning backlinks because many sites will link to them as a resource for their visitors.

He didn't have any programming experience, so I recommended using ChatGPT to generate the code for the tool. ChatGPT is an AI assistant that can write code in languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript when you provide a prompt describing what you want to build.

We decided to create an online notepad tool for productivity and organization.

On ChatGPT, I entered the prompt

Write me code for an online notepad tool in HTML, CSS and JS

ChatGPT generated all the necessary code to build the tool.

Next, we installed the Code Snippets plugin on his WordPress site. This allowed us to paste the code from ChatGPT and get a shortcode to embed the tool within posts and pages.

We created a blog post titled "The Ultimate Online Notepad Tool for Productivity" where we embedded the shortcode to display the tool. We also shared the online notepad on forums and with influencers in the productivity niche.

Within a month, the post and tool gained over 50 backlinks from other sites. The additional links and traffic from promotion led to a 45% increase in organic traffic. Building and sharing the tool at no cost using ChatGPT proved to be an effective link-building and growth strategy.

For any niche website, creating a useful online tool related to your industry can be an easy way to earn high-quality backlinks and drive traffic. With AI tools like ChatGPT, you don't need advanced programming skills to build simple but effective tools. Let me know if you have any other questions!
