Community response

Why build a linkback bot for Steem?

  • To increase follower counts of related authors by providing additional discovery mechanism
  • To increase payouts for authors of high quality collections and authors whose posts are included in collections
  • To increase of number of posts linking out by providing incentives to do so
  • To increase number of views per visit and time spent interacting with Steem
  • To increase steemit.com traffic from search engines
  • For fun and profit

At this moment linkback bot is still in alpha and runs with limited capacity.

Roadmap

Linkback bot is under development.

  • Post language detection and bot i18n
  • Author analytics
  • Personal analytics
  • Tag analytics
  • Mention and linkbacks notifications by twitter, etc
  • Possible link weighting by rewards
  • Spam prevention features

Great work. Thank you for all your hard work:)

Very cool @ontofractal - I actually find it very helpful because it allows me to follow back or leave a comment of appreciation to the people who cared to share my post.

I don't know if you're are following each other, but you may want to see what @ausbitbank is up to, especially in Reddit and IFTTT

Nice tool and very useful. Thanks!

Nice work thankyou for adding Reddit support :)

So just to clarify it sounds like the link back is in a way supposed to help on our post if it is there? I'm new and working hard and trying to improve my work which seems hard.

Great stuff, will check this out and follow you.
