Social Bookmarking Automation How-To: Onlywire

March 16, 2010 · 46 comments

in Social Bookmarking

The Profit Being You Community that Jodie Thompson and I co-run has the benefit of not only their live blogging modules, but also of a marketing/branding/Q&A call that puts all of Jodie’s years of experience available to the students!

While Jodie was celebrating her Birthday last Monday (Happy Birthday Jodie!), I had the privilege of taking the drivers seat for this call and teaching on some extended topics!

Fortunately for you, Jodie has agreed that there is no harm in giving you just a taste of one of the many resources our students have! So my next two posts have video that is taken directly from that Q&A session!

Onlywire: Your Free Tool For Mass-Syndication

via Automation to Social Bookmarking Sites!


What is Onlywire?

Check out this brief (60 second) video to get a better understanding of why you want to put Onlywire to work for you!

Onlywire Training

I’m making this training available in two different resolution formats for those that are not on a high speed connection and may have trouble loading my super-high quality files which I usually use.

This training includes: What is Onlywire, How to Install the Onlywire plugin, How to Create an Onlywire Account, How to Install the Browser Button, How to Syndicate a Post or Article, How to Finalize a Submission, and much more!

I have embedded a medium quality video below. However I have also rendered the video in my favorite  Super-High Quality Video Format,  which is substantially easier to see/read if you prefer just follow the link!   

Additional Onlywire Resources

  • Onlywire Quick Start Guide
  • Onlywire Knowledge Base & FAQ
  • Onlywire Help Desk

Onlywire Summary

Hopefully this combination of introduction, extended training and resource links will help demystify an incredibly powerful tool!

I look forward to hearing about your experience with social bookmarking, SEO and Onlywire! Please leave your insights below! I hope if you found this post of value you will share it with others.

Fantastic training Kim, thanks. Totally taken the headache out of syndication for me :)

ps, you mention in a previous post about using IMAutomation. Are you still using it, and in your opinion, is it worth the monthly fee??

Thanks for the great video :)

What is the difference to the other plugins that are not official. They seem to promise the same results. Do they also work?

Hey Kim,

I just came across another social bookmarking site like onlywire - which also features a free way to use the program - called Social Monkee (http://hansschoff.com/social-monkee). It basically allows you to build 25 backlinks a day by just submitting a button, similar to onlywire. The premium version allows you to get 100 backlinks and you can also spin the content submitted up to 9 different ways (different titles, keywords and comment/description). Just read your post here and thought you'd like to know about this program that can compliment onlywire and boost backlinking.

Hi Kim,

Very helpful article. I hadn't used OnlyWire before but had heard it mentioned a lot. This made me understand why and how it could be helpful so it looks like I will be adding it to the list of tools that I am using. Just set up an account and starting to play with it now. Thanks for breaking it down for us! - Rob

Hi Kim,

I looked into Onlywire some months ago and had some tech issues with it so ended up with socialmarker. However socialmarker I have to be unreliable. I will have to look into Onlywire again as I've only heard great things about it.

Great job on the video; this is definitely where one of your talents lie. Will be in touch next week... I would like to talk to you about creating a collaboration if you're interested. :-)

This is amazing, I used it some time ago and works perfectly, centralized integration and sharing of posts. Once I won 40 of authority for one page because of it.

I am not 100% with using this yet, not sure whether it is better to use the onlywire button up in the browser? Kathy said it was a breeze, but I find it challenging with all of the different sites asking for finalization... I will review this again (and again! haha!) All those backlinks make a TON of sense to take the time to set this up correctly for sure.

Kimberly:

Thanks 4 the great tutorial. IS IT ME, OR ARE ALL THE LINKS DOWN?

I clicked on the Onlywire Quick Start Guide link, for example, & it re-directs to the helpdesk salespage.

Also, how do we get help from them? The FAQ on their main page goes to a helpdesk sales app.

Hey Kimberley, I actually started using their services a couple of weeks ago. I haven't joined all the sites yet but I intend to once I get the time. Of those that I have joined it works really well. There's only a couple that I have to manually complete the submission and I'm fine with that.

Hey Kimberly,

Thanks for this great training. With so many of us doing tribe syndication it is my hope that more and more people will begin to use this awesome resource. Not only does it make syndication a breeze, but provides multiple backlinks with the click of a button.

Congratulations on your work with Jodie. She's such an authentic, loving person....you two make an amazing team!

Really fabulous job on your OnlyWire training, Kim! I wish I'd had this when I was getting started with it ~ I definitely fumbled with several steps that you just made seamless.

I really appreciate your sharing this from your course with Jodie ~ amazing value that you're just giving away here. Thanks!

Hey Kimberly

Just saw the video and like the concept but again it will be not that effective as when we submit anything on social bookmarking websites...promotion part is also very important else without that one will simply submit their post and nothing else.. Though very useful for new blogs to quickly get indexed and increase backlinks..

I use onlywire on some of my sites. It does tend to be flaky though, sometimes it doesn't actually submit the url even though it says it does. It's a good free alternative to some of the expensive programs out there. Thank you for the post Kimberly and i appreciate the fact that you are a dofollow blog.

Hey Kimberly,

You make Onlywire seem so simple and I learnt something about adding your name and the authors name to the tags, I never thought about doing that. This is a must see post for anyone starting out with syndication.

I will be sure to point some of my friends to this great video resource.

A pleasure to read your posts as always.

Have a uplifting day,

Your friend,

Beth :-)

I only use IM automator when I have time and then just for their free tools. Were I to invest in bookmarking tools I'd pick up BookMarking Demon, which I've used in the past through a JV arrangement and is a real workhorse. Requires a fair bit of set up but even though its pricy certainly earns its keep. I still cant justify paying for IM Automator but at the same time sometimes its free links which are just nice.

Given that they are not officially supported by the company that created the API... I don't know. All it would take is a minor change to the API for them to stop working. Given that the official one is free, the truth is that I haven't bothered to mess with the others Mark. Have you had a chance to check them out?

There is no denying that finalization is an absolute pain in the ass! LOL!

Be sure you go to onlywire.com and uninstall their browser addon, and get their browser link and their pc plugin. They're changing it up trying to improve captcha rates. When you get the new tools it will ask you to drag the two share links to your browser menu. Then they are what you click when you're on a site and want to bookmark the site. Later, you follow up through onlywire.com to do your finalization.

Hey Josiah, thanks for stopping by! I'm glad to hear your appreciating the Do-Follow status and hope to see you back around again soon! I havent been checking my onlywire links TOO closely, mostly just Digg, so now I'm going to have to start checking better. Thanks for the headsup!

Val, thanks for your stopping by! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Onlywire can be a little ... or, okay... a LOT baffling, but I hope this video helps it make at least a little more sense! Be sure to let me know if you still have any questions!
