5 Ways to Build Back Links and Increase Your Website Link Popularity

Link building is a very important factor that will determine whether your SEO campaign is a success or failure. Every successful SEO campaign has a strong link-building campaign. Link building is the number one way to improve your website rankings in search engines. Every successful SEO campaign has a lot of backlinks as well.

In this article, I will show you several ways to build backlinks and increase your website link popularity.

1. Posting on Link Forms and Small Directories

Many people post on link forms and small directories not realizing that it does not affect their rankings in the search engines. It is better to use these two methods than to post on 1000 blogs with a link to your website. If done right, it will bring you traffic; but the short-term results will not be so great.

2. Posting on Article Directories

You can write an article on any subject and submit it to the top 100 article directories. If you do this, you have the opportunity to post a link to your website in the resource box. In addition, most article directories allow you to post a link inside the article. In this case, your article will be seen by many people and might even get posted on blogs and other websites.

3. Creating a Keyword-based Page Title

You can use your keywords to write a unique page title for every page of your website. If you are not very good at writing titles, you can let others do it for you by registering and creating an account with Web artificials and letting them (or you) use the Website Name restricted slot to put your website name in. This slot is awarded to the website owner for each website that uses their name as the only title on the page. This is a great way to boost your link popularity and gain more traffic to your website.

4. Blog Commenting

Posting blogs and commenting on other blogs is another common link-building method. Most blogs give you the option to post your website name as well. Most blogs allow you to write your own opinion or include a link back to your website. If your website relates to the subject of the blog, you will see a lot of traffic and possibly a lot of new customers or clients.

5. Social Media Activities

Social media activities are just as important for your website as any other form of link building. Many social websites allow you to create a page where you can post your website. You can also 'like' or 'share' other people's content and give your website even more exposure. There are many social media websites available and increasing your popularity on the different social websites will help you attract more potential customers.

These are just a few of the great link-building methods that you can use to help you build your online presence. You should also beware of any link building worth doing that involves hurting your site. For example, hacking your website and installing a Google toolbar in your browser with the exploit of exploiting a bug in the Google ranking algorithm. There are too many hackers and spammers using this method today to provide any benefit.

SEO Risks to Avoid

Ignore The Gurus

Please step around that pile there on the ground. What's that? That's the advice a guy, a self-proclaimed "guru," gave my friend about her site and SEO and PPC. He relieved her of a lot of cash and left this mess she needs my help to remove.

SEO tricks and treats abound on the internet and everyone claims to have cracked the code. But as my friend and so many others are finding, the top ranking doesn't automatically translate to revenue. Emphasizing a keyword makes sense only when that keyword will attract traffic that makes a purchase.

Of course, there have always been wolves out there on the fringes of legitimate business groups. These days the predators know if they shout the absurdist claims loud enough they will attract the ear of a frustrated entrepreneur who lacks the internet sophistication to see through a scheme to the underlying scam. If you are the type to spot a scheme or a Wolf, listen to an equally barking idiot before you jump the deep end and sign the check.

SEO Companies & Scams

My friend's experience with SEO and SEO companies was the catalyst for me becoming more watchful of the sheer number of SEO scams in the industry. I did not jump the minute I saw a scheme that I could not believe. It left a bad taste in my mouth and although I have no small degree of respect for the intelligence of people who work in the SEO field, I was also attracted to the scheme.

My friend's story is not a unique one. I have heard it from a dozen or so clients who encountered companies like mine. They were promised "unlimited traffic" and sent their traffic to a " nonexistent website." They were assured that by advertising their traffic and optimizing their website for the search engines they would increase their traffic. Out of dozens of calls I received about these companies, I was most impressed with the first legitimate attempt I received to honest an unresponsive business. The firm was from a non-profit organization and they did not want to charge for their services. They were kind enough to understand that new clients might not be familiar with the services they provided and that they needed an introduction before they could see whether the firm was legitimate. This small gem of a business was the equalizer for me looking for easy ways to obtain large increases in my clientele.

My clients and I have become kind of a testing ground for new SEO strategies. When we import keywords and keyword phrases into Google Analytics to assess which ones might work and which ones don't, often it is hard to list down all the viable SEO strategies available. After all, shouldn't we optimize our websites for search engines, which in turn makes it easier for targeted traffic from search engines?

Results Only Matter

One of the search engine optimization strategies that rank high in my list is that which provides results in the form of online videos. In one recent case, a client showed me their website that ranked in the top 5 for several keywords and keyword phrases that seemed to be tailor-made for their industry. Numerous pages of material were related to this industry, and their website incorporated each one of them. I suggested that we watch the number of minutes a visitor watched on their home page and progress throughout the site. This simple measurement proved to me that the firm was providing a lot of value with its product.

My favorite recent example is that of an estate agent who had two different types of SERPs. One was for local searches, and the other was for hyperlocal searches. Local searches had very few results and only a few were for companies in the area. Hyperlocal searches on the other hand had numerous, but mostly hyperlocal searches for companies throughout the country. This left the agent puzzled.

They had several clients that could end up in the top 10, but why were their hyperlocal search results so much better than the smaller local searches? This problem was eliminated when they changed their "Florists in Austin" into a hyperlocal search phrase. Now their site improved its visibility on Google by +5 and the SERPs improved by almost 10 pages. Without this small improvement, they may have been working on several different keywords that did not provide a good match for their business.

Local SEO

To take advantage of local searches and hyperlocal search marketing, you need to employ the methods listed above. SIMPLE: You want people in Austin, Texas to find your website for relationship dating. Your search engine optimization (SEO) strategy should be, "dating".

You can get a lot more sophisticated with website optimization, but just start with the tips above and you will be well on your way to hyperlocal search engine optimization success.
