If you aren't Buildling Links You are Not Going to Succeed
By Jackie Lee
If you aren't getting search engine traffic I can almost
guarantee you aren't building enough links. I can say this
because building links is probably THE most important thing
there is to do for your site if you expect to see search
engine traffic to your site. Most new internet marketers
fail to understand this and go for the "easy" social
traffic. Problem is social traffic doesn't pay. It's time to
get started building links, here are few ways to get you
Blog comments. This is an easy way to start building links.
It will also get you some direct traffic if you do it right.
You can use software to find blogs that are related to your
site, but you can also just go to Google blog search and put
your keywords in. When you find a blog similar to your, read
the post and then if you have something to say you can make
a post in the comments. You can put your keywords in the
name field and your url in the url field. This will create a
link back to your site. There are many nuances to this
technique so look at the other comments and see if others
are doing this before you do. Make sure you add some value
in your comment. Don't just write "nice site, I like it"
that is not valuable and your comment will most likely be
Article marketing also known as Bum Marketing is a great way
to build links to your site. You have what is called a
resource box at the bottom of your article. You are allowed
to place 2 links to your site within that box. These are
what will become your backlinks. Make sure you use keywords
in your links within your resource box. Remember it is links
back to your site WITH keywords as the anchor text that the
search engines are looking for. If you just write click
here, that will not help you at all.
RSS is one of the easiest ways to begin building links back
to your site. It's also a strategy not everyone is using.
All you have to do is grab your RSS feed url and begin
submitting it to RSS directories. These directories are
free, and for many of them you do not even need to create an
account. For many you can leave tags for your feeds, these
are simply more keywords related to your feed so others can
find it when searching the directories. The link is usually
made from your post title, so make sure you use keywords in
Free content platforms. There are literally hundreds, if not
thousands of places online that will allow you to put your
content on their server for free. These sites are a dream
come true for those building links back to their sites. You
have control of the content and therefore you can make sure
your links have the perfect anchor text. These free
platforms may be free blog sites, free wiki type sites, and
of course squidoo. Make sure you read the terms of service
for each before you start, as each site's rules are a little
As you can see building links to your site is not very
complicated. It can be time consuming and relatively boring,
but it's just one of those things you have to do to see
search traffic. If you fail to build links back to your site
you can pretty much expect not to see much search engine
traffic. A big hit of traffic from stumble can feel good on
the stat counter, but you may be surprised that even after
1000 visitors you haven't made a dime. Work on building
links, so you can get some search traffic. It may take a
little more work, but you will actually make some money.
