Work Update – Virtual Assistant’s Feedback about Link building Tasks

Work Period: Jan 31st & Feb 1st, 2013
Hours Worked: 11:40 @$2.22/hour
Money Paid to Me (Virtual Assistant): $23.33*
(*Exclusive of $2.57 charged by oDesk)
Overall Difficulty of Tasks: Medium


  • Since currently I am working only on high priority folder tasks, so most of the updates are related to those videos and screenshots.
  • I have researched 4 forums for posting comments, Please see Forum Posting.xlsx in the Dropbox
  • Also I admit that most of the time I overlooked this task due to some other priorities and usually skip link building. For example we haven’t posted any yahoo answers for the last so many days. What I propose there is to work on linkbuilding research tasks on a specific day. For example if:
    • I spend 2-3 hours of forum research, blog research, yahoo answers and pinterest only on Friday and forward you links as you have more free time on saturdays and sundays and provide me transcription,
    • I will easily transcribe them on Monday and can post them to their relevant forum or blog.
    • I think this way we can easily devise a system so that we can do linkbuilding more seriously and regularly for IH.


Party Games Website Update:
  • Fixed the said text from the page ‘Two minutes dating and other icebreaker game’
  • Redistributed sexy-truth-or-dare-questions via Rss and submitted to stumbleupon directory.
  • Rotated more pages via RSS
  • There was a single liner C2 post submitted by a user, which I submitted as a comment and then deleted the C2 post.
  • High Priority Video: Submitted as a comment and then deleted the C2 post
  • Did same with a lot of following short submissions:
  • High priority video in which you highlighted party games site where everything at the bottom of the page contained a link, I have fixed that issue.
  • I have fixed the problem with the Facebook badge also, the issue was due to an error in the Facebook badge HTML that I have rectified now.
  • Made it center aligned and also made same changes to BB1 pages by using ‘Add/Manage Right Column’ interface
Ideal-Helper Administrative Support:
  • Uploaded Ideal helper logo to Aweber list for virtual assistants
  • Fixed the text formatting (as some parts of the text had a small font size) for hourly-jobs.html
  • Also rechecked all tier pages, found at least 5 other pages that had a similar problem and fixed all of them.
  • Based on the craigslist account login details provided by you, I have created an ad, but it still asked to verify a US phone number
  • Watched all videos related to HootSuite project, moved all of them to a new folder (Instructions/Projects/Project Social)
  • Also, set up the “thank you” page for this page. Please have a review of that.
  • About another high priority video, where you asked me to recheck analyze it report for Dropbox tier 2 page because it contains ‘dropbox’ more than 2 times within link text
  • Analyze it did not report any such error because I think that one of the ‘Dropbox’ is already turned to ‘drop box’
  • All other ‘Dropbox’ links are built via C2 posts (titles for C2 posts) and obviously analyze it report doesn’t count those links.
  • Some rectification emails from Kathrin were pending, therefore I worked all of them and made all suggested rectifications. Also the mail you sent me today about the same message twice, that is because I placed another messaged before message # 20 on Aweber


Transcription Support:

  • Transcribed and submitted a comment to a blog post but that is not published.
  • Transcribed and submitted a comment to this post. Since now it has more than 300 words, therefore removed ‘nofollow’ ‘noindex’ tag and also removed it from C2 short submissions Excel sheet.
  • Thanks for proofreading the transcribed bloglet, I have submitted that to the blog page. Please have a review.
  • Transcribed and submitted a comment to ‘The Worst Thing I Ever Did’ post. Also corrected its title as you advised in one of the high priority videos. Also distributed it via RSS
