Never Ignore These Link Building Tips

Search different blogs online and you can find hundreds of link building techniques. Often you get confused. You don’t know what exact technique to use and for how long you will use the technique to your advantage. The truth about this matter is; There is no perfect technique in link building. Each technique has its own strength and weakness. Some techniques might work. Others can’t. While the rest are not what you need.

In other words, it is possible to search for a whole list of link building techniques, but it is still up to you what to choose and why you use it.

submission url

Submitting your site’s URL to various web directories is a submission-based technique. This kind of technique can’t guarantee immediate traffic (especially when done for free), but it can still work. It can work effectively once you manually submit your page to popular search engine directories like Google, Yahoo!, Live Search, Ask. DMOZ is the most popular open directory today. You can send links for free.

forum post

Participating in the forum is a powerful way to promote yourself. A forum is like a public park in real life. When you walk in the park, you don’t just breathe in the fresh air. You also socialize with the people around you. You smile at them. After a short talk, some of them will be your friends and you give them your contact numbers.

This is a similar setup on the online forums. Once you register on the site, you immediately search for friends. You introduce yourself in your profile. Search for threads and reply to the ones you can identify.

It is wrong to expect a lot of attention if you are a new member. Marketing yourself is all about consistency. If you want attention on the forum, your regular participation is needed. Reach out to people by replying to their threads, help them solve their problems, share content, follow them on Twitter or Facebook, comment on their photos, and if possible, post your company’s URL in your signature.

article submission

Article marketing, according to SEOMoz’s Rand Fishkin, is the most tricky and misleading medium in search engine optimization due to duplication of ideas and low quality of the content itself.

Yes, you might write or spin a long article and submit it to multiple directories, but think about the strategy: is this the right strategy to invite people to read your article?

The answer is no.

Writing a long article, turning it into ten versions, and submitting these versions to directories is bad practice. You are wasting time and effort. It doesn’t matter how well written your article is, but it doesn’t get enough attention, it’s still useless.

Think big. You are only allowed one backlink on article directories and if you have ten total, it doesn’t always mean you have ten backlinks every day. Ten people in each directory will not directly click on your link.

To get things right, write an original article. Manually submit it to an article directory with high page authority and once an article is published, it’s the right time to manually circulate the URL on your social media.
