It includes video sites, blogging and social networks, classified ads, bookmarking, forums, and directory sites that you can use to build up links to your website. Just pick a few sites each day to add your links.
What is Link Spam?
Just about every piece I have read on link building recommends posting comments on blogs and forums to build links to your website. This is an advanced technique because it takes some work to find blogs and forums that will allow you to post links that will actually help with the search engines.
People often abuse their postings on blogs & forums with link spam, which are large amounts of junk links, and as a result many blogs and forums now tell the search engines to ignore the links in comments by adding a special tag to each link. You need to do special searches using Google to find the blogs & forums you can post to and get credit for your links. We will be adding info on how to do this in the future.
Links from .EDU (educational) websites are considered to be one of the best types of links to have for traffic building.
A very effective way to get .EDU links is to search university websites for professors that teach subjects related to your website. You try contacting them by email saying that you came across their web page and you thought that your website might be a good resource for their students.
Know a college student? You can get links from a highly effective .EDU website and show a college student how to make some extra money!
Heres how: Nearly every college now gives free web space to all their students. This web space is on the schools .EDU domain. All the student has to do is take out a free ad on CraigsList offering .EDU domain links for sale for around $25 per year. They add a brief site description and a link to their page, and it is probably the easiest money they will make while in college. Of course, since you showed them this strategy, they will want to give you a link for free!
It is also good to buy a few links on paid directory websites. There are specialty directories for most types of businesses and professions where you can get a link on a quality site for usually $25-$40 per year. Just search Google for your type of business + "directory".
You can also buy directory submissions in bulk. CheapDirectorySubmission.com is a service that will submit your site to hundreds of directory sites for as little as $10.
