Link Building Techniques

Monday, August 4, 2008

For the past 1 year and 9 months in the world of SEO I have learn so many things about SEO and Link Building Strategies. When I was just starting to learn SEO and link building, blog commenting, article submission, press release submission, forums posting, directory submission, yahoo answer posting, submission to bookmarking site, link exchange, ads posting and group posting on yahoo, Google and msn are still useful by that time. But now, I have disregard other link building strategies because I think it doesn't help anymore and it's just a waste of time.

Here's my List of Link Building Strategies that are still useful

You’ll get permanent One Way Link if you don't Spam them

  1. Directory Submission – it is useful if the directory has quality links and doesn't contain bad links. Check out my list of directories.
  1. Forums Posting – links from other quality forums are ok but it's better if you will get links from related forums.
  1. Blog Commenting – when I do blog commenting I make sure that the blog is related to my site.
  1. Submission to Bookmarking Site make sure that you don't spam the bookmarking site with lots of submission links from your site. Remember you need permanent link if you spam them, your link/account will get deleted. Check out my list of bookmarking site.
  1. Yahoo Answer Posting – useful for frequently crawling of search engine.
  1. Submission to Niche Directory – it's good to get links from niche directory. It adds value to your link relevancy.
  1. Article Submission – it doesn't give high traffic but the keywords that is use as anchor text in article content helps to improved SERP.
  1. Press Release Submission – like article the keywords in anchor text helps in SERP and also helps for promotional campaign.
  1. Blog Post – if you have blog for the site that you were optimizing and has related blog post with keywords on content linking to your site, the keywords that you use as anchor text will help your site improved rankings. It also give traffic to your site.

When doing link building It doesn't matter to me whether the site is no-follow or do-follow as long as it's related to my site. I also don’t look for the PR of the site because if you want your site to have natural links you should not just build links to get links from do-follow with high PR site.

Keyword Research is the very important part of optimizing. Before you can do on page optimization you need to find the right keyword first. Not all of the keywords that is ranking for your site are useful and will bring lot of targeted traffic. That is why you need to do keyword research by using keywords suggestion tool. Google suggestion tool is the best tool to find related and synonyms of keywords. After getting related keywords, find the traffic of each keywords and the number of search result in search engine then compute for KEI of each keywords. The formula of KEI is [ KEI = (traffic/search result)*traffic ] . It is better to target keywords that has high KEI which is greater than 1. If the KEI is less than 1 it only means that the keywords is very competitive or useless to target.

Keyword Suggestion tools that you can use are:

To be successful in getting the right keyword you should know the niche and the type business of your client. Think as if you're the owner and the visitors of the site. In this was you can come up with bright ideas in picking the right keywords for your site.
