Default Link Building Tips

On my opinion, the best inbound links you can have are the ones that your top competitors are receiving

Now, how to get them?

1-Find competitors for each of your pages (remember: 1 webpage= 1keyword)
2-Use a tool to find which domains link to these pages
3-contact these domain (via their contact _us form) and request links exchange

If you have a good site, these websites would more than likely accept your invitation; It helps both of your businesses

You can also choose to find competitors by domain name if you know them (instead of keywords).

I Hope it helps

That is ideal. Your website is so good, that people do your SEO linking / social linking for you - because your website has value. Let that sink in.

The other way would be building links on forums like this and other locations that will "stick" for hopefully a lifetime. That is white hat link building. Where you are building backlinks on URLs that are relevant, and have a relevant link to your website that adds value to a discussion.

Then there is blackhat - building links any way you can. The links may disappear in less than 24 hours, and could be seen as a penalty. This is a way to get high rankings fast, but they are not stable rankings unless you continue black hat activity until google catches ya. If they do, I'm skeptical on google's actual spam fighting abilities many times.
mmorpgs : You are the man

Content is the biggest deal. People need to focus more on building new and relevant pages that provides values to online surfers

However, a great content only satisfies visitors (at first). And in order for visitors to read your content, search engines need to send them there.

This means that you also need to satisfy Search Engines. There are many ways to do that among which “building links”

I have said it in one of my post but, I would like to say it again: the best links on my opinion are the one your competitors receive. You find who link to them (by page or domain name) and you manually request links exchange via their “contact us” page for example

If these links are the reason of their successes, then they will soon be yours as well.

That assumes your competitor knows what he or she is doing. That also assumes that the target of your link exchange offer will get back to you and respond to your offer.

I tried to manually do link exchanges many years ago, and it played out somewhat the way telemarketing does. I would

- Try to make contact with many website owners (several times)
- End up reaching their website designers
- Then have to ask the website designers how to reach the owner
- Then attempt to reach the owner (often several times)
- Then hope the owner of the site would be responsive
- Then hope the owner of the site would follow through
- Take very good notes so I did not get confused

I mention telemarketing because you might literally have to make 100 contacts over the phone to get a few people willing to do a link exchange. This could probably take you hours and days, and you probably wouldn't get very good links unless links from your site were of comparable quality. In other words, someone with a PR 5 website is not going to exchange links with you if you have a PR 2 website. It works against their ranking.

There are better, more effective ways to create backlinks that take a lot less time.

A business is tough to build.

Pick one : Easiest way, poor result Vs. Hardest way, best result?
The easy way almost always does not produce sustainability

As far as the path to the Best result, it is full of obstructions. People who look for the easiest way will give up when they face their first challenge.

What is best, 100 links easily obtained with virtually no help to my site, or 2 good links obtained calling and e-mailing 100 people

I like to mention once again that no matter what technique you utilize, nothing good will come out of it if your content is of poor value

I do Internet marketing & advertising for a living, so what I have to do is get the fastest results in the least amount of time. A client would never pay me for hours and hours of linking work, so I have to find solutions that are labor-effective and produce sustainable results. At the end of the day, it's about speed and quality. AND being on the first page of Google.

Completely agree with you, A client does not know about results. He/She is only concerned with the results. What matters is is the business you bring to your client through your skills.

I am not too up to date with all the SEO thingos, however my aunt keeps blogging on her site -eg one or two posts a day, and she has built a large following. She even told me she did not even know what link building was.. I guess it sort of grew organically.

So I guess a good way is just to create content that is worth to read.

Hope it helps.

Link exchange is less effective in the post penguin world. Effective Link building strategy is now based on blogging with the original content and quality back links.

Everybody should get off the blogging kick. Yes, it works and yes, article marketing most likely works but probably to a very limited degree. This is not 2001 or 2005!

What I'm saying is that plenty of other things also work very well and probably a lot better than blogging. The only thing I recall about blogging is that you pretty much lost everything once your post was pushed off the first page.
