Most of the newbies are asking me how I made backlinks for my blog and what is my link building strategy. And some other people are asking me, how to SEO (Search engine optimization) their blogs with backlinks. At the same time they are asking me how I allocate time to do link building within my blog. So I decided to add a new post on “My ongoing link building strategy”.
First we should know why link building is so important. That is because you are looking for a good search engine ranking. Your search engine ranking will be improved with the increased number of backlinks you have. The other thing is that you can increase the number of direct visitors by building backlinks. That is why you need a link building strategy for your blog. This link building technique has been proved as best methods to get a better page ranking in SEO for years.
Let me explain what I did so far with my link building strategy to make backlinks;
To be frank, continuous and sustainable link building is quite challenging. It takes time and effort. But you must do link building for your website SEO. Allocating time for link building is bit challenging for a part time blogger. But you must make a time table to allocate the time for link building. That’s why most of the experience bloggers say that the time management is very essential when blogging.
Let me move in to the real link building strategy I did to buildlinks to my blog;
1. Continuous commenting on other blogs for link building
From the day I made my blog up to now I made comments on other blogs. It is a great chance to get high quality backlinks to a blog. It takes some time to make a good comment. But it is very effective way of link building to a blog. I can highly recommend this link building method to anyone who is interested on blogging.
2. Regular guest posting on high PR blogs for link building
One of my earlier posts discussed the importance of guest posting. So I am not going to make a discussion on guest posting even though it is related to link building. But I’ll give some short description here. By guest posting you will be able to make high quality backlinks to your site as you did in blog commenting. Make original articles, post them on other blogs and ask the owners of those sites to add two backlinks to your blog. It is bit time consuming, but a very effective method of link building.
3. Link Building by article submission to top directories
The article submission in to top directories is still working for SEO. But with the time it is becoming less effective. But it is also a good method for link building to your blog since it provide high PR backlinks. Anyway don’t worry, play your part correctly then the Google will do the rest for you.
4. Press release submission and link building
Press release is a very good method to bring instant web traffic to your blog. At the same time it is a good method of link building. You can make some announcement about your blog; video marketing or any other thing that you think it is special to the community. I used this method to announce my special events. Recently I announced about my new e-book which is scheduled to be publishedon 12th Monday 2012.
5. Submission of my blog to blog directories for backlinks
This is not a very good strategy to get direct traffic, but it is still a good method to get backlinks. So I used it as a part of my link building strategy. Submit your blog into each and every directory you are coming across. That’s how it works.
6. On going social media marketing for backlinks
Social bookmarking is one of the easiest and best methods of link building to your blog. It is a very effective method to drive direct visitors too. It also makes high quality backlinks to your blog which helps in climb in on SERP.
At the end what I want to say is link building is not a one time SEO strategy, this is a continuous or ongoing SEO strategy to bring your blog in to the first page of SERP. So if you want to enjoy better result, you should have sustained motivation on link building for your blog.
I explained the all the methods that I have done through by link building strategy. So this is your turn to start a new link building strategy for your blog too.
