Building backlinks for free can help you gain first-page ranking on Google. And what that means is a huge increase in traffic to your blog or website. What I plan to share with you is an easy to use, a free approach designed to generate various one-way backlinks to your blog.While I was looking at the stats of an article that I posted, to one of the better article directories, I chose to click on an ad link that caught my interest. Here, I learned about a system in place to help you start building backlinks to your site for free. You can get up to 120 one way links going back to your website or blog for each article you submit, for free. Take a look at how it works…
Many blog owners are interested in a way to have good articles posted to their blog on a consistent basis. This helps them satisfy their readers with fresh content and helps them keep their search engine ranking. So they will allow this service to post your content with links back to your website or blog in them.The content you submit for posting must include a minimum of 450 words. You can include up to two links directly back to any site, blog, article, lens, or hub page you wish. You get to choose the blogs and the categories you want your information submitted to. For free, you can pick up to 30 blogs where your information will appear.Every post made to every blog will additionally include a tag page where your information will appear. A tag is a certain keyword or keyword phrase you want your information to be connected with. When you add these up, 2 links per article posted to 30 blogs (60 links) with the addition of a tag page posting (60 additional links) gives you up to 120 links directly back to wherever you choose. All this for free, it’s amazing!
Google will see these links related to your site and rank your site more favourably. One thing you do want to be aware of is that you want your article to appear as being unique, ideally on each blog, it’s submitted to. This free system has the capability of posting articles that you spin. What spinning does is allow you to use synonyms for words in your content so your content appears as being unique to the search engine robots. A video tutorial shows you how to do this.Personally, I began using this service to enhance how I’m building backlinks to my blog. One of my MLM lead generation strategies is article marketing. In this strategy, you create an article for a certain keyword-targeted market, spin it, and submit it to about 200 article directories. I use Automatic Article Submitter to spin and auto submit all my content. Now I simply take the spun version of my content, do a little spin reformatting and submit them to this free service for posting to the blogs I pick. It’s as simple as that.
Another thing you’ll enjoy about this system is that they post your content to two or three blogs per day. This is important, as it is building backlinks to your desired site as they would happen naturally. This method is definitely more beneficial for search engine ranking. As your links increase in ranking so does your site traffic. If you learn to use this service wisely and pick good keywords, you could find your site on the first page of Google and that means massive amounts of traffic. Learn to convert that traffic into leads and sales and who knows, you may possibly be the next Internet success story.
This particular tactic can be one of the most important tools in the link building arsenal. The thing is, it requires more than a little foresight and planning on your part. In short, you need to be in the right place at the right time. So what is newsjacking?
It requires you to keep up with breaking news and jump on any stories that might have something to do with your particular niche. From there, you can write content that not only keeps your readers informed but also lets you interject with your two cents of commentary.If it sounds like a full-time job, know that it probably is. The law industry is a particularly difficult (not to mention overcrowded) niche for link builders, so it might make sense for you, if you have the budget, to turn to a third-party content writing service.
We may be heading toward “peak infographic”, but right now, infographics are still hugely popular and still manage to drive a lot of traffic on the Internet.Creating an infographic, just like newsjacking, will require you to stay up-to-date on important events, issues, or news stories. Infographics are your way to create an instructional or educational resource for your readers.If you don’t have the time or the budget to create an infographic yourself, there are lots of services out there like Fiverr and oDesk that can help put you in touch with skilled freelance designers.The construction industry is particularly difficult from a link building point of view. There really aren’t that many blogs out there about backhoes or cement mixers. But if you can find a topic that has mass appeal – such as demystifying how road construction works – you’ll have much better luck.
Finally, let’s take a look at a link building tactic for those companies that might have a slightly larger budget than your average small business.It’s not at all uncommon for businesses to send out free samples of their product for reviewers to get their hands on. It’s not exactly free publicity, but it’s definitely publicity.You can do something similar even if yours is not a physical product, in the strictest sense. Vista College, for example, makes a habit of offering scholarships and other financial aid to struggling students. The web traffic brought in by these scholarship offers can handily make up for the cost of such offerings.
As you can see, there are plenty of out-of-the-box possibilities if you’re engaged in link building for a difficult client in a very specific industry. Get creative with it, and you might just be amazed at what you can accomplish.
