I am new to all this. How do I get myself added as a blogger on FoodoPlanet?
It’s really simple – please make sure you are logged in and fill out the form below. You will immediately be granted access to LinkBack and you can start right away. We look forward to reading all about your foodie adventures!
Note – Blogsites created on Wixsite are not compatible with the spoonback feature.
What exactly is a LinkBack?
A LinkBack is an automatic link from a FoodoPlanet restaurant page to your blog post. You review the restaurant on your blog, and we’ll link to your post. The link appears in a special Blogs section on each FoodoPlanet restaurant page, city feed, your Food Journey, your profile page, and your followers’ feeds.
Why would I want to use it?
Here at FoodoPlanet, we prominently display blogger reviews. If you use LinkBack, FoodoPlanet users will see an excerpt from your review, and a link to click through to your blog. In short, you get exposure and traffic to your blog for free.
How does it work?
Once registered, all linked posts from your blog will show up automatically in the Blog Posts section of your profile on FoodoPlanet as pending blog posts. Here, you can edit your post snippet, add a rating and photo(s) for the restaurant, and tag friends before publishing it to FoodoPlanet. It is advisable to edit your post snippet on FoodoPlanet to reflect the content related to the restaurant, as that would encourage viewers to be directed to your blog page.
How long will it take for my blog link to appear on FoodoPlanet?
Once you add a LinkBack to your blog post, it will reflect on your FoodoPlanet profile page under ‘Pending Posts’ within 24 hours. From here you can easily add a rating, photos, tag friends and publish your blog post on FoodoPlanet. If it has been significantly longer than that, please write to us at [email protected] and we’ll investigate. It’s helpful if you can provide us with links to the blog posts in question.
Who Are Top Bloggers and how are they different from Top Foodies?
Top Blogger rankings are based on the number of blog posts (excerpts) that the blogger has published on FoodoPlanet via LinkBacks. Note that only one blog post per restaurant is counted towards the Top Bloggersrankings.
Top Foodie rankings are based on the reviews, blog posts, and photos you post on FoodoPlanet. Reviews and blogposts get 25 points each, and photos get 2 points each. If you have added multiple blogpost(s) anda review for a restaurant, only one of them will be eligible for points on the Top Foodie rankings; that is, only 25 points will go towards your leaderboard ranking.
Why was my blog post deleted from FoodoPlanet?
Though we appreciate all the great blogging contributions to FoodoPlanet, not all blog posts are eligible for inclusion on the site. Below are a few types of posts which fall into this category.
Why was my LinkBack access revoked from FoodoPlanet?
We request you to claim access to food related blogs only. Our team runs a verification on all registered blogs and blogs which are irrelevant to the FoodoPlanet platform i.e. non-food related, or containing objectionable content, these are revoked.
