Link Building Tips and Resources

    Link Building can definitely be an extremely difficult task if you want to take it on based on purely human labor to go out and request for links, whether they are one way or reciprocal.

    Here I am trying to bring few tips and few resources of link building which you may find worth to have a look

    Submit to Web Directories:
    Do slow and continuous directory submissions for your site. This is an important long term work and solution for any site. Start doing directory submission from the very first day you site is up. Here are few free, non-reciprocal directories:

    http://www.dmoz.org 9
    http://www.lii.org/pub/htdocs/home.htm 8
    http://www.femina.com 7
    http://www.gogreece.com 7
    http://www.sacentral.sa.gov.au/site/page.cfm 7
    http://www.worldhot.com/ 7
    http://www.123india.com/ 7
    http://www.elib.org/ 7
    http://www.ezilon.com/ 6
    http://www.epooch.com/ 6
    http://www.christiansunite.com/ 6
    http://www.toronto1.biz/ 6
    http://www.canadianeh.com 6
    http://www.aardvark.co.za 6
    http://www.nzs.com/ 6
    http://www.aigam.com 6

    I have a long list of directories. See list of free, non reciprocal directories.
    (I am listing few sites here to make sure this thread does not go very lengthy)

    Reciprocal Link Building:
    Contacting webmasters of relevant sites requesting for have a link exchange. Write personalized emails to request for link exchange. It will be better if you write 2-3 good things about their site and tell them how link exchange will benefit both parties. Also, mentioning good qualities and PageRank is always good idea.

    Do not forget to ask and give (1) URL of link, (2) Title of link, and (3) Description of Link

    Now, main thing is How to find good link partner. Search google and other search engines for terms like: “keyword reciprocal links”, “keyword links”, “Keyword link exchange”, “keyword link submit”, “Keyword link partner” etc.

    I came across few tools for searching link partner:
    Link Partner Finder - from 4th media.
    Find Link Partners – from zebonline
    SEMrush
    Few other tools which you may find helpful are:

    Link Popularity Check - quick and easy to use web tool from Marketleap.
    Arelis Link Builder - reciprocal links solution from Axandra/Voget Selbach Enterprises GmbH
    Zeus Internet Robot - automatic reciprocal link generator and link directory creator from Cyber-robotics.
    OptiLink Software is a link analysis program that reveals how top ranked pages achieved their search engine rankings.

    Article Submissions:
    Yeah, write quality articles which have some interesting and useful stuff, and submit them to free article directories.

    You need to put link back to your site. Let your article do double duty- (1) bring traffic and (2) link building. You need to make your keywords anchor of link to your site.

    To be very frank, I see quick results when I succeed to place my 2-3 articles on high PageRank and high traffic sites. Some times we need to submit article like submission to directories and sometimes we need to request webmaster via e-mail. You need to tell them why they should put your article on their site.

    I have well refined list of article directories with me, and I can share the list with you. Few examples of article directories are:
    http://www.awomaninbusiness.com 5
    http://www.a1articles.com/ 5
    http://sbinformation.about.com/ 7
    http://www.addme.com/nlpast.htm 6
    http://www.advertisingknowhow.com 5
    http://www.allfreelancework.com/ 6
    http://www.allmerchants.com/ 5
    http://www.allthewebsites.org/articles/ 4
    http://allwomencentral.com/ 5
    http://www.articlealley.com/ 5
    http://www.articlebar.com/ 4
    http://www.articlecity.com/ 6
    http://www.articledashboard.com 6

    http://www.articlepros.com/ 4
    http://www.articlesphere.com/ 4
    http://www.articlewarehouse.com/ 4
    http://www.articles-submit.com/ 4

    You can see the complete list of article directories.


    Submit Press Releases:
    Write press releases about your site or a section of your site and submit them to press release distribution services.

    Here are few sites which you may find good enough

    http://www.clickpress.com
    http://www.webwire.com/
    http://www.emediawire.com

    Social Networking / Social Group Sites:
    Social networking sites like www.myspace.com are very useful these days to not only get links but also huge traffic. One more benefit of being active is you get thousands of friends to make and then convert them into your customers.

    Participating in social group / networking sites are proving boon now a days. There are scores of such sites available these days. People are making money by selling the list if their friends at those site. This is a great way to have links and traffic.

    Participation in Link Programs:
    There are some good link programs in which you help others to get them link and other help you. Following are few good ones to join.

    http://www.linkmarket.net/
    http://www.linkleads.com/
    http://www.infowizards.com/
    http://www.linktraders.org/
    http://www.linkexchanged.com/
    http://www.linkexchangeit.com/
    http://www.linkpartners.com/
    http://www.123exchangelinks.com/
    http://www.links-pal.com/
    http://www.ads4links.com/
    http://www.spocka.com/
    http://links-for-you.com/
    http://www.webmaster-link-exchange.com/

    I also recommend Co-op Advertising Network of DigitalPoint
    All are free, enjoy using them.

    Link from .org and .edu sites:
    The education and organization sites are considered more valued sites and links coming from those sites are valuable link. You need to search those sites.

    Just find out some forums and blogs of the organizations and education body which have content relevant to your site. Make blog comments and put links in them, make sure your comment is genuine and not spam. Read the whole topic and find something to comment on the topic… job is done.

    Same way leave your links in forums signature. There is few hot topics on forum signature telling importance at seo point of view and traffic point of view. Go ahead and do it, you’ll make valuable links.

    You can do the blog comment and forum sign at non .org and no .edu sites.

    Social Book marking Site Submission:
    This is somewhat new thing we in industry. Now a day’s people are taking interest in social bookmarking. So, I thought I should start the service of social bookmarking. Yeah, it is worthy enough to pay someone to do social bookmarking.

    For those who are new to it, in social bookmarking system, users store lists of Internet resources, which they find useful. These lists are accessible to the public for their views and comments. This became a great seo technique now.

    Here are few good social bookmarking sites:

    http://del.icio.us/ 8
    http://www.digg.com/ 8
    http://www.blinklist.com/ 6
    http://ma.gnolia.com/ 7
    http://www.furl.net/ 8
    http://www.diigo.com/ 6

    Yeah, one more site StumbleUpon at which webmaster are working in group to get tons of traffic to their site. Read this thread in this regards- http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=208395

    I hope you’ll find this thread useful and appreciate. Thanks, Mr_Kumar

    I am not sure if reciprocal link exchange with sites that you find on Linkpartner finnder is worth the hassle because all you get is a link on one of those link pages. Its much better finding a link exchange partner on DP where you may be able to exchange a link on a content page or something.

    Yes your right instead of participating in those programs you can better a find a website manually and ask them to link exchange with you as you will link exchange with a website that has content related to yours

    But in link exchange programs like those you cannpt be sure who are linking to you

    I would also mention co-op network ReceiveLinks which is completely free. You collect points for placing links on your sites which you can than use to place your links on other sites of the network. You have full control over the number, page rank, points used, etc..
    I am using this service for 3 months and my rakings improved dramatically.

    These programs are smart enough to check undesired link placement. You may be right, I would like to say that a huge number of webmasters are using these programs and they stay using them for long period.
    Thank you friends, for such a nice appreciation and green rep. This all is encouraging me to share as much as I have with me.

    Making .edu site linking your site is difficult if you dont know the right way to do it. For me, I just use Google...it makes the proccess easier :p

    EDIT: I've been getting A LOT of PMs. Please dont PM me if you're expecting me to tell you how to do this for free. Its fairly easy if you know what kind of sites that are editable and what search commands you should use.

    OKay, If you don't want to share with us then no problem. But I think if you share your knowledge with other then It would increase as other will also willingly share their secrets with you.

    Thanks mate.
