The best way to drive targeted users to your site without having a fat wallet to spend on paid ads is...Backlinks
It has been said that links are the currency of the internet. While many marketing and traffic building methods come and go, this seems to hold true. Links make the internet go around. So, naturally, you want to have as many incoming links to your site or blog as you possibly can.
Every marketer needs traffic to stay in business, but it is getting harder than ever to get the amount of traffic your site needs to make a profit.
Your backlinks must be related to your niche site. If you link to your friend’s site that only gets a few visitors a month, it is not going to get you very much traffic. You need traffic from top quality authority sites. The more links you have on these type of sites the more traffic you will get. The more relevant they are, the better.
If you have the time, you can build these links to your site yourself or you can buy a software that does it for you. If you want to do it yourself, I am going to give you a few tips to simplify the process.
Tips For Building Backlinks to Your Website.
This is a fast easy way to get relevant incoming links. Visit blogs that are about the same topic as your site and leave a relevant comment on a recent post. That’s it. You’ll get a link back from the comments section and hopefully, you’ve found a great new blog to read regularly.
–Submit an Article to Directories
That sounds simple, right? Write an informative article about your topic and submit it to article directories. Not only will you get an incoming link from the article directory, but also whenever someone republishes your article on their site. Again, super easy and non-technical.
–Be a Guest Author
If articles and comments are a great way to get links, then being a guest author at another site or blog is just pure brilliance. Being a guest expert not only gets you a nice in content link to the page of your choice, but it also establishes you as the go-to person on the topic and gets you in front of an entirely new audience
While not my personal favorite method for link building, it is still a backlink. Bookmarking on social media sites like Digg, Delicious, and Facebook etc. I don’t really recommend bookmarking your own stuff, but instead putting a few select social media icons on your site to allow your visitors to choose which content to submit to those places.
–Help Someone on a Forum.
Message board communities are powerful and amazing places online. If you find a forum that is based around your niche or topic, sign up and get active. Helping someone on a forum is like handing out free cookies. People will love you for it. Be honest, be yourself, and don’t forget to link back to your website in your signature and profile while you’re there.
…….OR Else You Can Build Backlinks The Easy Way…..
Well, I know what you are thinking, ” that seems like a lot of work and time invested”. Although this is true, there are a few software products on the market that can help you get linked up with these high authority sites. Using this software, you could start seeing traffic to your site within minutes. For less than the cost of dinner out, You could actually get your link on Wikipedia…. Wow, wouldn’t that be great! Think of the traffic you would get from that.
If you are not using the software mentioned above, or you’re paying someone to get these backlinks for you, I suggest if you go this route to get a software that will tell you if your links are found on the net and if they have the “Do Not Follow” tags. This is something you must absolutely know, or it could cost you big time.
