Best Link Building Strategies
Okay, that was slightly annoying. 1000 words of pure Dave gold down the swanny all because WordPress is REALLY ANNOYING at times and ate my golden words.
Let’s have another go shall we? These things are sent to test our mettle, and mine is AS HARD AS WOOD.
Um, yeah, to begin.
We know what they are, we know that we need them (don’t argue, yes you in the back row), and although I have been talking a lot more of late about the importance of on-site SEO as part of how to build a successful website there is still no doubt that for good serps positions you need backlinks. One of the worst kept secrets of how to make a living online. If you want the best link building strategies then read on. This is guaranteed to boost you in the serps.
But not all backlinks are created equally.
And I know that a lot of you just have junk for backlinks and not a lot else. Gangsta’s like my good self and Terry have been banging on for an age about getting yourself some good quality links. Ones that will stand the test of time. I talked about it aplenty in niche domination II, when we entered the realms of setting up good quality satellite sites.
Hopefully you have begun to do exactly that.
Lando with his great guide to how to buy aged domains took it further and introduced us to buying aged domains to get high PR links totally under our control. I know that not all of you have disposable money for such purchasing and I know many of you will not have been able to afford to set up a whole series of sites with domain age to get a great set of satellite sites to boost your main site like you wouldn’t believe , but there are still other tried and tested ways of getting some serious clout and improved serps positions even if you have minimal or no money.
So, for today’s lesson here is a little plan of attack for you all to get busy with. It should take a lot less than a day if you have the tools, a little longer without.
Free Blogs And Websites
I want you to go to each of the following and set up a single page or post. Use a keyword rich user-name if that will be the name of your site or page. In absolutely no particular order:
1. WordPress.com PR9
2. Multiply.com PR7
3. Blog.com PR6
4. Insanejournal.com PR5
5. Terapad.com PR5
6. My.Greasy.com PR3
7. Thoughts.com PR6
8. Myblogsite.com PR4
9. Sosblogs.com PR5
You will, if nothing else, be mixing up the platforms that you get links from and not just having a million links all with the same url structure, ala BMR.
Now look here Dude, this is just the beginning. A link is not just a link, they vary dramatically in the import they play in terms of improving your rankings. You know it and I know it, it is just easy to bang away all day getting links without trying to improve what you already have and without going for a little diversity. So, once you have set up 9 articles all linking back to your main site for a keyword or two (vary the anchors a bit but to the same url) you want to give these babies some serious weight.
Today I shall be mostly using the very effective Backlink Solutions for my “backlinking my backlinks” day of work. I shall send 100 links to each of the new pages I have created. It will take but an hour or two using BS, your friendly neighbourhood spinner sees to that, Magic Article Rewriter, don’t you know.
If you are Mr Poor, then use a free spinner, they are out there if you search for them. And if not then you will be doing it manually. The goal is to get your backlinks backlinked in any way you can.
You can use bookmarking programs along with mass article distribution programs or things like Backlink Solutions. But you want to be sending a good number of links to each of the 9 sites you created earlier. Automation will make it easy, manually it will take some time and you will have to compromise on the number of links you send. Try to find a tool to get this done asap or simply make backlinks via Postrunner or some other way, maybe even Backlinks Philippines on the Tools page. But Backlinks Solutions is my preference.
But if you get busy and really send some mass links to these established sites you are getting some good links, you will definitely see a massive jump in the serps for your keywords in a month or so, and you will have added a little variety and spice into your backlinking campaign. Sending 900 links direct to my page would have wiped it out for sure, but filtering them through 9 direct links lessens the impact while still giving you great serps results.
Just getting links is now often not enough for competitive terms, it never really has been, you need links of quality. Your own satellite sites, backlinks that have been backlinked, age, good on-site SEO and a whole lot more.
This should be just a little of what you do to get your site up there in the limelight for all to see, and anyone who tells you that you do not need links for organic rankings is not facing the truth. If you are not getting them from the goodness of other Webmaster’s hearts then you need to make ’em, to break ’em, and to take ’em, ’em being those that are doing all of this and more and are ranking above you for your coveted terms.
Something to do for the day, isn’t it.
Let me know how you get on. This is about as old skool as it gets, but entirely effective and yet so often overlooked. This is simply boosting your backlinks for extra juice, nothing complicated about it but the results will speak for themselves.
So, the above was written just over 12 days ago now. Let’s see what has happened so far:
Guaranteed Improved SERPS Positions?
The term I targeted has 1,200,000 competing results in google. I am currently already number 1 for it (naturalmente) with a dedicated domain. I am also number 6 for the term too.
But the single page that I am targeting for the term, on another site, has come from the bottom of page 4 to position 14 in the serps. The free properties I used have also fared very well indeed. In fact I have 4 spots on page 2, 3 of which are the single posts I set up on the free domains I listed earlier.
Not bad eh?
I know that this technique relies on tools to a large degree and you will be hard pushed to replicate it without at least a few of them.
But think of it this way, if you can get such results from just a few hours of work then your terms should be more than worth the investment. I held off buying any tools whatsoever for a long time and I regret it. Earnings could have been a lot higher if I had used them earlier. It is simply the way it is
Try it out by any means that you can and let us know the results. You will be amazed how well a single post on free wordpress blog can fare so it is a great funnel as well as a great backlink.
Also come check back to this page in a few months time. I have been seeing a lot of pages with high PR simply by linking out to high PR sites themselves so it will be interesting to see what happens to this little article in the future.
If you have been looking for places to get backlinks from and if you have been looking for a way to really improve your traffic then you need to get busy to increase your position in the serps.
We can talk all we want about not backlinking, getting social, etc, etc, but the bottom line is that for the foreseeable future if you want to rank for any competitive terms then a backlinking plan such as the one given here is going to be what you need to think about doing.
It works, and that is the bottom line.
This is OLD SKOOL, and nothing new, but most peeps simply do not implement such strategies, which is a shame, as I bet that your competition is.
DISCLAIMER: Dave is in no way responsible if anything goes wrong and you lose rankings or sites. But all serps improvements are strictly down to the advice given here and he deserves to be worshipped for giving away such goodies for free.
