Build backlinks the smart way

Discussion in 'Google' started by SearchBliss, Nov 2, 2008.

    Google is whare backlinks really count. I just thought I'd share this info to save webmasters time and AVOID MISTAKES.

    Getting Backlinks Naturally
    Many backlinks are achieved the natural way. When your website provides users with useful content, webmasters and website owners will often link to these useful web pages (on your site) for their website visitors to use. Most often then not, these sites that link to yours naturally are relevant to your sites content. Also known as "targeted backlinks", these types of backlinks are the most beneficial when generating quality traffic from them. Getting natural backlinks, however, is a slow process. These are built mostly on trust and gaining trust takes time.

    Building Backlinks
    One of the acceptable ways of building quality backlinks is listing your site in directories, posting in forums, and submitting to article directories. What you want to avoid is link farms, spam sites or sites that host illegal content, purchasing links in bulk, etc.

    Getting Listed in Directories
    Getting listed in directories like DMOZ and Yahoo is a must because this is a way to get some quality backlinks for free and your site is easily noticed by search engines and potential visitors. Generally inclusion in these directories is free but the drawback is that sometimes you have to wait months before you get listed...or not listed at all. Top directories like DMOZ and Yahoo have strict guidlines when submitting, so follow the rules carefully. Yahoo also has a "pay for review" option that is costly and does not mean you will get listed. I would suggest submitting the free listing first, then wait a few months to see if your site is listed before considering the paid option.

    Article Directories and Forums
    Generally search engines index forums so posting in forums is way great way to get quality backlinks. Join forums with subject matter relevant to your site, add your URL (link) with anchor text of your choice to your forum signature, then contribute to the discussions. Be sure that you abide by the forum rules before you post anything...and do not post just for the backlinks. Forum administrators are not stupid. If your are truly contributing, your posts will not get deleted and you won't get banned. Also, sometimes administrators do not allow links in posts, unless they are relevant ones, so it is best to leave your link in your signature.

    Submitting articles to directories can be more time-consuming then posting in forums. If you can write good articles on subjects related to your site, it's well worth the backlinks.

    Feed them with RSS
    Offer free content through RSS feeds to interested sites. When the other site publishes your RSS feeds, you will not only get backlinks to your site, but potentially a lot of visitors. Publishers of the feeds in return get to add relevant content to their site. It's a "win-win situation".

    Heck!
    I wish I read this before!
    I would have saved the expense of 5x sublet link builders and 3 in the UK plus one telesales.
    The redundancy notices are in the post!
    Have some green!

    This makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the tips. As for DMOZ, how long should I wait to re-submit a site?

    Thanks.

    You shouldn't resubmit at all. Just submit, forgot about it, and hope you get accepted.

    I think DMOZ is a little overrated, unless you get yourself linked into a High-level category with a good PR, it's not that worthwhile going after it.

    isn't article directories a bit outdated?

    I have not heard many people talk good about them the last couple of years..

    Great tips, but most of us I think like to build link as soon as possible to get fast SERP and the fastest building back link is buying from 3rd party company.
