Basic Link-Building Strategies You Should Work With

In the early stages of a website, you need to get relevant links from other websites to boost your search rankings. While older websites have an easier time getting these links due to their inherent trustworthiness, newer websites still have three strategies they can use to generate them.

If you are interested in how to generate relevant one-way links for your website, here are three starting strategies. If you spend effort into any of these strategies and your website is of decent quality, results will be seen quickly and be very good.

Create And Submit Articles For Links

Building links is key, and article directory sites offer easy-earning one-way links. Hundreds of directories are out there, with content that you can write and submit to these sites. What's more, your articles may find readers who will link back to your website.

It is important to offer quality articles with relevant content. Bad blog posts include advertisements, or just articles packed full of affiliate links. Approach the article writing process as if you were writing an article for a magazine, blog, or website.

For this strategy to work, you need to write articles consistently and submit them to article directories. People will start looking for your articles when using the directory, and your articles and links will spread. If you want to get serious about submitting content, it's worth investing in software so you can be more efficient.

Submit To Different Web Directories

There are many directories online where you can submit your URL for free. Large directors like DMOZ and Yahoo will get some major recognition from search engines for your site. Smaller ones are good for a free backlink and maybe a trickle of traffic, but when you put everything together it adds up in the end. This strategy is usually where people start.

It's necessary to note that most large directors are very picky. If a listing appears in DMOZ, for example, it will turn Google's head and also get you on the Google directory and many other large directories, as well as hundreds of websites. DMOZ has seen everything though.

All website submissions are reviewed by a human editor to ensure their quality. If your site is unfinished and it's not the best in terms of quality, then you'll be rejected. "DMOZ" will reject your submissions if they appear to be unprepared or not quite up to par.

DMOZ is the most important directory listing to add to your collection. Beyond DMOZ, before submitting anything it's a good idea to make sure your website is in good shape. This would include being indexed by search engines.

Use Of Online Forums And Discussion Boards

If you're active in any group chats, forums, game clans, or social media groups, make sure to add your profile page to be seen. Don't use it as an opportunity to spam people with your online presence but if there’s a place available, put your site up and start connecting.

You can include your website link to your signature; this way if you email people back and forth, or forward all of those stupid jokes via email, they will be able to visit your site.

You should always be respectful to prospective readers, and not spam them with ads or try to use them purely for traffic. You can still promote your website effectively if you are a respected member of the community, and make sure you don't abuse links in your signature by including too many links that point to your site.

When you have a website, there is always the ability to form partnerships with other websites which will benefit both sites.
