How to Create Amazing Traffic by Generating Links to your Website
All great website traffic starts by Search Engine Optimization; however, SEO is not the easiest way to get traffic to your site. After SEO, the most important and easiest way to drive traffic is by generating high quality links to your site.
There are many areas to spotlight when generating links to your site. These three areas are
a few of the most important ways to focus on when generating links to your site:
* Website of authority- place links on sits related to yours
* Social media links- highly used by the masses. Users will refer others to your site.
* Article marketing- write about your site and get the word out
A website of authority is a popular site that people frequent, that gets linked to on the basis
of its merit. It is a site that others willingly refer to when the subject of that site comes into
conversation. When linking to a site, it is beneficial to link to one whose subject matter is
similar to yours. Here is a very quick way to uncover some industry-related sites and web
sites that link to your topic. Use your domain name and in Google type:
“related:www.mydomain.com”. (Note that there is no space between the “:” and the domain
name.) Submit your search. Once you have found a high ranking authority site that similar to
yours, find a way to link to them. You may also analyze their back-links. Look at the content,
title tags, or any other factors that may help you improve the rankings on your own website.
Social media marketing helps with creating the global link popularity that is essential to high
rankings. In order to use social media correctly, you must build relationships and a
presence. Building a presence in the social web on a site like Facebook is all about
reputation and branding. Strong branding leads to natural inbound links. Stated simply,
participate in social media so that you create branding and a trustworthy presence. Brand
recognition will improve the links associated to your website and it is the social media users
who blog, mediate forums, find friends and net workers who will be creating the inbound
links to your site.
For article marketing it is critical that you never use someone else’s written work. Use your
own. You can develop an article based on the keywords that you generated while looking at
authority sites. Format your article with 400 to 2000 words. 600 words are optimal since it
keeps your article looking professional. Use sectional subtitles and headlines. This keeps
your readers interested. Don’t forget your resource box. This is your signature which will
point readers to your site since you will place the link to your website here. Never put your
link in the article’s body. Article sites will reject your articles. Submit to many article
marketing sites to improve your rankings. It is easy to do and many are free!
