Introduction of Inbound Links
SEO often cites high-quality inbound links as the best possible link-building strategy. Yet many of the most well-regarded sites in the industry prioritize anchor text links that are not the best.
I’ve listed the methods below in the order you should use them: from the beginning (things you should do when you first start a site) to the advanced methods, the ones you should use when your site is a little bit older and you’re already getting a fair amount of visitors.
Before we get down to business, I have to tell you this very important detail: don’t start promoting your site until it has some content – it’s unlikely that you’ll get good results when you promote an empty site!
What Do Some Key Sites Have? Here are two sites directly relevant specifically to link-building strategies: LinkedIn Community Pages. Link Builders use those posts in their projects as potential leads which helps ensure better engagement from prospective prospects when they enter an email exchange where nothing came up positive about this specific project—and who knows what else like something silly got sen
Here are 5 Secrets Ways to Get High-Quality Inbound Links, but that's not all there is to it. When you're on the prowl for opportunities to expand your portfolio or build new contacts, getting high-quality links can have some significant and potentially valuable benefits over going direct with them (just check out a list of key places I listed below).
1. Directory submissions
this is a very important step for a new site because this is probably how search engines will first find you. What you will need:
* 5 different versions (except for the site URL) for each of the following: site URL, title, description, list of keywords.
* An email address, specially created for directory submissions. This email should be on the domain of the site you are submitting or else it will be rejected by some directories.
* a list of 50 SEO-friendly directories submission sites lists at https://bit.ly/directory-submission-sites-lists has one of the best lists of SEO-friendly directories.
Now here comes the hard part: take that directory list, visit each directory and submit your site cycling your titles and description on each submission. This is the hardest part mainly because of the amount of workload – don’t worry, this can be made bearable by using 2 utilities: Roboform (www.roboform.com – which you can use with Internet Explorer and Firefox that has free and paid versions) and Informenter (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/673/ – a Firefox-only plugin).
2. Reciprocal links (link exchanges)
I don’t use this method anymore because it’s too much work and there are not enough rewards! Link exchanges used to be a very powerful method at the beginning of Google and PageRank, but not anymore. This doesn’t mean that reciprocal links don’t work anymore, it’s just that they’re not that important anymore.
However, this is one step you could follow when you have little competition, somewhere in the range of 300 000 of 400 000 results for your search word or phrase.
3. Reprint rights articles (submitting articles to article directories)
This is one of my favorite methods of obtaining backlinks: it requires little time, it’s free and you can (possibly) get a lot of return on your investment!
Writing articles gives you perfect control over the environment your links are in and even a little control over the site where your article resides (because webmasters usually post only articles that have the same topic as their site). Writing articles of high quality will ensure that your articles will be posted on many sites – a good article will get you a good number of backlinks!
One last thing about article writing: never, and I mean never post the article that you’ll distribute on your site! Considering the article could appear on very important sites, Google may apply a duplicate content filter on your site, thus possibly burring it in the SERPs. Your site should be as clean as a whistle, with as much original content as possible.
4. Buying links
In my opinion, if you are not an expert in search engine optimization you should not try buying links to improve your rankings. There are a lot of factors to take into account when looking to buy links: the theme of the site, the traffic that the page or site gets, whether that traffic is from natural and sustained (not from PPC, traffic exchanges, or such methods), PR, anchor text and many more!
However, if you decide on buying text links on other sites, do the following:
* choose well-established sites that have the same theme as yours.
* The link should be durable: check the robots.txt file, no-follow metatags, and the rel=” no follow” link attribute.
* link look as different as possible from a bought link: surround it with text and avoid placement in the site’s footer or an “Advertisements” or “Partners” box.
5. Link baiting
It is one of the most powerful methods of online promotion, but this should be used only when your site is a little bit older and stable – getting a lot of links in a short period can hurt your site.
