The subdomains on the domain “startpagina.nl” are not automatically created. 😀
If I was from outside the Netherlands, I would think the same too 🙂
The subdomains are manually created by people who want to create their own page,
to manage a website with lots of links about the same topic. I think it’s some kind of “hub”?
Either way, lots of people link to those pages and those pages link to different website who all write of have information about the same relevant topic.
Startpagina.nl itself is a (very) populair website here in the Netherlands.
It’s like a page where you start surfing when you come online, such as yahoo.com or that kind of pages. It is for many people to very first page when they start surfing, a “start page”.
Please, make no mistake, Panda is a mainly designed to hit the duplicate sites or low quality sites, but there are a whole lot of things that can be negatively affected by this big algorithmic change.
If you want to do linkbuilding with startpagina’s, despite my advice 🙂 –
then you should look at metrics like Page Authority en Page Trust etc,
at least, that are some ways to determine if it is worth it do spend your time on submitting your URL to startpaginas. (mostly they ask a link in return!)
Could you recommend me some quality startpaginas from Netherlands
What kind of niche are you in? You can also see where the competitor is getting their links from.
