How do I activate my page to sell links?

To activate your pages please read the "Getting Started" section in your control panel and view the video tutorials.

The following instructions also may help: From your Control Panel click "My Link Pages" in the left side menu then under the domain you want to activate click on the button labeled "installation code". Select the type of web page you will be adding links to, it must use either PHP, ASP, Perl, or ASP.Net.

PERL = Be sure to use the appropriate web page extension: *.pl or *.cgi

PHP = Be sure to use the appropriate web page extension: *.php (for example, your home page must be named index.php)

ASP = Be sure to use the appropriate web page extension: *.asp (for example, your home page must be named index.asp)

ASP.NET = Be sure to use the appropriate web page extension: *.aspx

You may need to check with your web hosting provider and see if they support any of the programming languages above. Unfortunately our code will not work in a .html or .htm page (such as index.html) without changing your server settings:

However if your web hosting server supports one of the programming languages above you can change your home page to the appropriate name (such as index.php or index.asp.)

Copy and paste our installation code into your web page where you would like the text links to be displayed. Be sure that the code is pasted directly into the source code of the homepage and that the code is not being included by the use of frames or through any kind of widget or module.

Once the code is added to your web page, click the "Validate Web Page" link in the "My Link Pages" section of your control panel. This will verify that our software is working correctly on your web page. If it does not work then something must be wrong and you can try a different location in your page.

Your web host will need to allow remote calls from your website which means they will need to have cURL or fopen enabled on their server.

Also if you are using Wordpress there are specific instructions here:

If you find that our code will simply not work on your page(s) please let us know if you wish to close the account by emailing info@backlinks.com.
