I have been using this SEO method of marketing for many years now and from experience, I know that the best way to bring in a steady amount of visitors to your site is by creating quality backlinks.
A lot of inexperienced sites owners think that by just submitting their sites to directories will help them rank better on the search engines and also bring in more visitors to their site. This is far from the truth. Most directories are junk and a waste of valuable time. Not all links are equal. It is better to build inbound links from high authority sites instead of sites with no value at all.
There is also another school of taught amongst Internet marketer’s that it is better to create your links from one quality website instead of randomly using different websites for inbound- links. It’s is very dangerous to focus all your link-building efforts on a particular site because it can prove to be disastrous for your site. It is better to spread your links and have the assurance that goes with it.
Here are some simple link-building SEO tips that will increase your Pagerank and will also draw more targeted traffic to your site.
Paid Links: A quick way to build backlinks is by paying for it. Before buying any backlink, you need to make sure that the link will be beneficial to you. Normally, before you buy any link, you will know whether it is a quality link beforehand. Search engines don’t favor paid links because they believe that by using paid links, you are manipulating the page-rank. If you are caught, you could get sandboxed. If you intend to use paid links, make it no more that three percent of you link building effort.
Blogging: Though it might seem time consuming, blogging is an effective way to build backlinks. Create a blog daily and every time you write content for your blog, don’t forget to include the link to your site. If you don’t have the time to create daily blogs, you can out-source it. There are lots of cheap services that can do it for you.
Another great method to build backlinks to your site is by writing articles. There are many article directories on the Internet but I normally focus on the top three which are EzineArticle, Amizine and GoArticle. If you are using these three, you should not have any need for another article directory.
