Investing In Links For Your Website
If you have not figured it out yet, getting links to your website is a vital part of your search engine rankings according to Google. Why? The simple answer is “because they say so” So investing some time into figuring out what kind of links there are and how to get them to your website, would be time well spent. I call these “high value activities.” So we will skip that portion of the discussion and assume you know that it is important to get links to your site. An important question then becomes, “how many links?” I look at getting links as an investment in my business. The more you get the more the site is worth.
This is a good approach. Let’s say you take some time to write some articles (a great source for links by the way) and start to send them out there. Let’s say you upload them to several article directories at the same time. In the beginning this may not seem like its leading to much. After a while your articles will get picked up by webmasters and bloggers and they will put the content on their sites.
As their sites grow in authority and page rank, so will your links. If they have some staying power it’s like putting money in the bank. Article strategy If I could urge you to make a budget for submitting articles, I would highly recommend it. Articles are a great way to get links for a couple of good reasons. First of all the content that you write is content that someone else will want to put on their website because they understand that content is king. Secondly if you write your articles correctly and use some interesting titles, people will want to read your articles and put them on their sites. Thirdly, in your article you will want to include 2 to three links to your website. If an article that has mass appeal gets picked up by 10 sites you can easily get 20 to 30 links out of your one article. After a while you can run out of ideas, this is when you want to sub out the writing part. Its well worth the money and you should consider it a great investment because of the type of links that you will get.
If you can afford to discipline ten articles a week, your site will turn into a powerhouse in no time. Investing in these articles is never a waste of time and can be a great way to get links. Creative strategy If you are creative and can make a short video either about your product or service, you have a great link resource. Videos are the rage and can be uploaded all over the internet. Getting other people to click them can be easy if your content is interesting. If it is very good, people will pass your video around the net like a favorite picture. Humor is a great tool to use in the quest for links. Use your imagination.
