5 Link Building Tips

Link building is an effective way to bring traffic to your website. The more traffic and quality interactions you get, the better your Page Rank will be. Instead of quantity, it’s time to reevaluate the quality of your links. Here are some methods that you can utilize to benefit your business:

  1. Submit a press release. The purpose of a press release is to announce your new website or upcoming events. PR websites will distribute your release to different online news outlets, while allowing a greater control of what demographics to target.
  2. Embrace social media profiles. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more. There are so many social communities where you can insert a link to your website.
  3. Protect your online reputation. When you get requests for link exchanges, make sure you carefully research the site. You don’t have to accept every request – it’s okay to say no.
  4. Share useful content. People will always appreciate info on a relevant or interesting topic. Whether it’s just random blogging or a more serious subject, be an expert in your field.
  5. Stay relevant. Don’t forget to demonstrate your knowledge and submit to relevant websites and blogs. It’s easy to get distracted, so stay on track!

  1. And don’t do what so many “SEOs” do by just commenting on articles and forums with a link back to your site. It looks bad and most relevant, trusted sites will just remove your link anyway.

  2. Good thing to point out. I also think it depends on the quality of your comment. And of course, you shouldn’t spam a blog/forum with nonsense that’s to linked keywords. We get tons of those!

  3. This is more on how to keep your website in good standing, not really about building links. The press release, yes. Not so much with the others. You really need to be an advocate for your own content and rattle some cages to get other webmasters to notice your content.

    Only influence for PageRank is backlinks. Toolbar pagerank doesn’t do much for me anymore and it’s time to start looking at rankings over (toolbar) PageRank.

  4. Great insight – even though content and links do go hand in hand, it’s the “buzzworthy” factor that we all want. Thanks for stopping by!
