How To Get Inbound Links For SEO
One of the best ways to move your site up the search engine results page for your keywords is to have incoming links from outside websites. The higher ranking and more authoritative these sites are the better it is for you.
The problem that people and companies with new sites run into is how to get these popular sites to link to them. Unless you are already a household name there are few authoritative sites that will easily share their “link juice” with an unknown, right?
That’s not necessarily true. I was reading a post today by Dana Larson on the Online Marketing Blog called 5 Link Building Tips for New Websites. It offers some great ideas on where a new site owner can get links from authoritative sites that will help you get started.
The post and commenters had some good ideas that you should check out, but it also made me think of some more. For example
- If you have an account on a social networking site like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. you can easily get a link to your site from there. While it’s true that most of their content is locked up behind your password and Google can’t read it, if you have a link to your site on your profile page and select “make it available to everyone”, you have a link to your website from some of the highest ranking sites there are today.
- If you belong to a group like a networking group, or a professional group many of them will give you a link as well.
