Can you really achieve to get good traffic if you know how to get backlinks?
If you are the owner of a website… Then you know that you would need a lot of good trustworthy and relevant backlinks in order to make it climb to the top of Google and also, in order for it to get extra relevant traffic.
Goes without saying really but you want targeted relevant traffic. Doing this link building manually can be a tedious task though.
So we have collected a number of helpful hints and tools that will show you the way you do link building easy.
So: What links are the best and where do you get them?
.edu And .gov backlinks are very high in value to Google.
Domain Relevancy is also key.
The more relevant site you can find to place your link, the more potential traffic comes from the link itself.
The more you have of these links pointing back to your site the more perceived value is thought to be inside of your website. At least this used to be the the Google thinking.
These days Google base their ranking factor on a number of other factors also.
Social proof etc…
Still, backlinks are vital and very much alive.
Be sure to do White-Hat tactics and that will help your site in the long run.
High PR is something which also carries a lot of weight in your backlinks. The higher Pagerank of the site you are linking to, the higher your site will be placed on Google.
Aged Domain is something you should notice also. If you link to an aged domain it carries a weight far heavier than any new site. PERIOD. You can buy domains with age from Godaddy auctions by the way. Find one with your keyword and it will be easy to rank with it compared to building a new site.
Also you may want to use http://justdropped.com to see for domains. It’s a very good site for finding aged domains.
Trustflow, the metric that is more relevant today, like backlinks were just years ago.
You can use a tool like SEMRush for Firefox or Chrome and Google anything. Then SEMRush provides data like backlinks, trustflow and more.
How to backlink?
Simply read a post on a “similar topic site” ( internet marketing – internet marketing sites) then make a comment on the post you read providing quality feedback and your URL to your internet marketing site.
That is ONE backlink. Comment backlinks has it’s place.
Depending on the site you can expect to get ranking, trust factor and traffic boost from that one comment and link.
Not a big deal necessarily, so that is why you need more of them.
A way to do this even better is to find the sites with the most traffic and then posting your comments on them.
ALWAYS think quality before quantity when your post is being read by real people.
Go to Quantcast.com, have it open.
Open up a new tab and open Google. Search for “internet marketing blog”. Without quotes of course.
From your Google search you will find a lot of results and if you want to you can start with the one on top and work your way down.
Now you can use quantcast for demographics and interests in some way, but I use it for numbers of visitors.
First result we had was:
http://blog.hubspot.com We then inserted our URL into Quantcast and got good indication that this is a great start.
*Not all sites show their stats.
|Estimated Traffic for Jan 01, 2012 – Jan 30, 2012||United States|
|People per Month||19,123||+47%|
|Visits per Month||7,315||2440%|
From this brief check we know that this is an active site with active viewers.
Let’s see if we can find a place to steal some juice from…
And yes. Here is a great post on the new LinkedIn “share” button. http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/31601/default.aspx
In the end of the page we can comment and leave a link which will point back to our site.
What is it worth?
Using a tool like Market Samurai as a preferred analysis tool we came up with these numbers:
Age 4 years.
And a whole lotta’ backlinks pointing to the site was revealed.
What does this tell us?
This tells us that a big number of people are using this site as part of their education.
Just by adding a simple comment you get a link from a PR 6 website pointing towards your site.
If you add a USEFUL comment you get REALLY relevant traffic from your comment also.
This is a more time consuming way of linking and the goal is to get targeted traffic rather than simply harvesting backlinks for your Google climb.
You can use backlinking to gain ranking with trust and PR. And also get traffic for years from simple helpful comments on the right places.
There are a number of ways to spread your links and commenting is only one way.
Writing articles is another. You can be very independent on this task and add your links where they can be added all over the internet via using various media channels. I.e. Free E-Books or content on your Facebook page, Twitter page, Youtube Video and Slideshows and more… Possibilities for posting your links are virtually endless.
Easier way of Link Building EFFORTLESSLY
First of all I will mention DropMyLink.com which is a simple tool for finding .edu .gov and a WIDE area of other very good links.
Here you can use DropMyLink.com instead of Google search commands.
Secondly there is Fiverr.com for easy timesaving. Order by using the search field and add “backlinks”,”.gov”,”.edu”,”paul and angelas”,”angelas” and more variations. I.e. “High Pagerank” or “Link-wheel”. Sort by rating and then read for testimonials. There is a lot of good link juice from Fiverr.com. Cheap also. Be sure to spend enough money on all of your sites. Start with anything from one to 5 gigs per site.
Important: The more random you order gigs AND where you order from, the more natural the links would seem to Google.
BEWARE: DO NOT BUY PBN’s unless you know the seller is proven over TIME!
Software for links:
You can use several link services and software to send out content carrying links in the form of articles or social bookmarking and more.
Article Samurai is one very good service for this.
SENukeX or SEO LINK ROBOT are also amazingly good tools for this task.
You can find link networks to join from anything from cheap, to V.I.P prices that also will give you a big boost in authority. BUT right now I would be very careful and Google to check if that link network has been banned by Google. Right now they are in brute force war and Google has penalized a number of networks. It is key to get diversified large network with proven retention rate with Google over time if you can get one.
Links will always be valuable as they stand for social recognition for other people AND Google.
Therefore you should always look for ways to get a good deal on links.
That’s it for this post.
