The Internet has become one of the most important parts of our everyday life. We can talk with friends and date with lovers who are far away, we can buy and sell everything there. Making business and earning money is also one of the most popular functions of the Internet today.
You can make your blog or website popular with millions of people only if you choose the best strategy. Link building is one of the best way to promote your site in the Internet. Here are some ways you can use to do link-building.
Create a Competition
This is a rather seedy way of link building where you create a web-page that has a competition on it. Start with a page that announces the competition, making it one about multiple companies. Things such as the top fifty companies in a certain area (white goods, fish mongers, etc). After a week or two, post up the results. This makes the page and “expert” page, which will rank higher and receive more links.
Get a Piece of Free Software
Get yourself a piece of free (openware/shareware) software that analysis the incoming links of websites. Find out how many links you have coming into your site, and find out how many links your nearest competitors on the Google search results have.
The company at the top will most likely have the most links, but result number two, three or four may have the most. Either way, your goal is to get just enough to beat the highest number. Do not try to get too many more as it will lower (oddly enough) your Google Page Rank, therefore making it harder to get future incoming links.
Link Internal Pages
Link your own internal pages to each other two or three times. Makes sure you have a few of your internal links pointing at the page you are trying to link build for. It attracts very good attention from other potential linkers.
Use the “Related Search” Feature
On Google’s advanced section/options, use the “related search” feature and find other companies that have keywords related to yours that are not competition. Ask to swap links with them. If you are not competition then they will not mind linking to you.
Post articles and guest posts onto websites and add in a link to your website. You will have to check to see if they allow it first. If they do, then create your own links to your site using articles.
Post From Everywhere in the Internet
Post links to your site from different corners of the internet. It is all well and good posting articles with the most popular article sites, but there are thousands of websites out there that will publish your articles. Many of them will be more dedicated to your keywords than any article publishing site will ever be.
Scour the Internet but be creative. For example, if you are selling socks, try links from article sites, but also try shoe sites, foot disease sites, foot fetish sites, foot abnormality sites and tile flooring company sites. You may not get many clicks on your links, but the link diversity will count in your favour.
Do a Little Regularly
Don’t do a lot suddenly, do a little -regularly. Doing a lot to build links quickly all in one go will flag your efforts as spam and it will take longer for you to rise up the Google search results?
This can be avoided through working to add links regularly in smaller numbers. Have a few articles published each week; add a few links in comment boxes, as a few people from other sites to link to you. As a side note, do not believe everything you read. There is a lot of phoney advice on the internet.
Use Social Bookmaking Sites
Use social bookmaking sites as a way to add a few links to your ever increasing amount. Do not use too many. For example, you will fall foul if you hire company to link a few hundred from social bookmaking sites. Simply treat them as another of your many link building efforts each week.
Create a Buzz on the Social Media Platforms
So much so that people will be itching to link their social media pages, Blogs and websites to your page.
Make a Long Term Plan
The strongest link strategies have a gradual stream of broken and working links over a long time. It is the same as updating your site over a long time. Create a long term plan so that once you are on top of the Google results, you are able to stay there.
Using these simple tips you will increase the traffic of your blog and find much more readers and visitors who can be your potential clients if you have a business or friends if you just want to share your experience, impressions and ideas.
