Linking Strategies You Need To Know
Many people who are starting an internet business do not understand the importance of building links to their website. You can compare the links pointing to your internet business to opening a brick and mortar business and having people all around the area telling others how great your business is, this is basically people links.
How do these brick and mortar business get people to tell other people? They don’t force them or pay them money; they give them great service, they give them a great product and continually give them great service after the sale. Well it’s the same on the internet. The links you receive pointing to your website tells others how good your business is, how good the service is and what great products you have.
How do you get links to your site? Internet marketers have many different ways of doing this. What is the best way? Well I don’t think there is a best way I think there are just different ways and you need to choose the methods you are knowledgeable about and comfortable with.
Here is a list of some one way link methods that internet webmasters use:
1. Article writing and article submission
2. Trade articles with other webmasters
3. Directory submission
4. Post to forums
5. Post to blogs
6. Link Exchange (not a one way link but it has its place)
7. Create great content and have other websites link to you
8. Create a piece of software code that other websites can use on their site
9. Create a video that others can use
10. Submit a press release
11. Buy links from websites
12. Find webmasters and beg for a one way link
This is just a short list of ways to get links. When you create your link it is beneficial to create your link with a keyword or as some people call it an anchor tag. You should do some research and choose the best keyword that fits your business. I am not going to go into how to do keyword research in this article but there are many articles on the internet that explain how to do this.
Every time you place your link make sure that the keyword is the active link that points back to your site. One suggestion I would make is that I would use a keyword that has high traffic searches per month. Many people will tell you not do this because you will never rank in the search engines for this word, but what they don’t tell you is that if you use the high search keyword you will get ranked for many low searched keywords on your website. This will create traffic to your website.
How long will it take until I receive tons of traffic? There are different types of traffic, paid and free. If you want traffic the same or the next day, there are many pay per click (PPC) system on the market today. Just go to your browser and type in pay per click and there will a list of sites that do this. If you want free traffic on the other hand this will take time. You need to promote your anchor tag (keyword) and start building one way links to your site. Don’t forget to add valuable content to your website, this is important. Over time as you continue to build links, traffic will start arriving to your website. I did a test to see how fast I could build 100 visitors of traffic to my site. I wrote 20 articles over a 3 month period and submitted them to article submitters. At the end of 3 months I was receiving 150 to 200 visitors a day to my website.
It all depends on how much you put into your business. If you are passionate about what you are doing the traffic will come to your website. Keep going and do not give up, your success is right around the corner.
