Interesting Top Link Building Techniques

Just want to contribute something here so i made this.
This is for all of those who want to start improving the link profile of their site.


Top 10 link Building Technique

We all know the importance of link building when we want to rank high in a chosen keyword. This is very important if you want to promote your site through Search Engines such as Google.

One thing that Google set Google apart from other search engines was their importance of link popularity to guide SERP popularity.

1) Link Exchange

What is it? You contact another webmaster proposing that you link to them and that they link to you.


Pros: Large volume of links can be acquired relatively quickly. Anchor text can be arranged to suit. Exchanging links can open the door to wider affiliations between sites and has the effect of shaping web communities.



Cons: Google cracked down on reciprocal links a long time ago, so if the links are traded from site A to Site B without any triangulation, the value of the respective links goes down a great deal.



2) Buying Links

What is it? You contact a Webmaster directly or through a link rental network and offer money in exchange for (generally high PageRank) links from their site.

Pros: The advantages are potentially greater than those of exchanged links (due to their non reciprocal nature). Many agencies (no names) use this method to quickly buy powerful backlinks for their clients.


Cons: Matt Cutts, Google's anti search engine spam guru, has written a lot about the subject and has stated that paid links are an unacceptable means of acquiring links. Several high profile sites have been penalised for selling links by having their PageRank taken away so that their outgoing links have no value, while several have even been de-listed completely from the index.

3) Article Marketing


What is it? You write articles and post them on article sites. The articles contain backlinks to your site.


Pros: This is a great way of getting a high relevancy link from a page that is customised to the particular (SEO) requirements of the writer. Post your article on sites like Goarticles and link to your site in both the text (using appropriate anchor text) and boiler plate section. Makes sure your keyword variations are spread through your article once or twice per paragraph. That's enough that Google gets the message of what the page is about and not too much to make it think that you're trying to trick it.

Cons: It's quite rare that an article site does well enough to gain much PageRank itself, so individual links will not carry much weight in ultra competitive markets. Even if an article directory site has a high PageRank at the top level domain, it's unlikely to trickle down to the page on which your article will be published.


Also, articles can look very spammy if they are copies of other people's material or are churned out without significant useful content.

4) Blog Posting

What is it? Links are included in comments on blogs which the search engines find and count as a vote for the target site.


Pros: Blogs still represent and opportunity for the link builder as long as your posts are appropriate and the blog dofollow.

Cons: When blogging became popular, SEO savvy folk jumped at the opportunity to use and abuse the comments features of blogs. The original PageRank algorithm, devised in 1997, didn't take into account user generated content and by 2005 blogs had become a major target for spam. The nofollow attribute was introduced as a standard feature of Blogger and WordPress. This took most of the SEO value out of links posted in user comments of blogs.


5) Forum Posting

What is it? You post on relevant forums and include links in your posts to your site. You also take advantage of the signature feature so that every one of your posts has an optimised anchor text link to your site.


Pros: Forums don't have nofollow in their user generated content very often. If you start a thread yourself, you can control the title and much of the content of the page your link will sit on, thus ensuring relevancy in the eyes of the search engine.

Cons: Forums have a lot of outgoing links so the link value per link is devalued greatly. Therefore, not a lot of 'link juice' will be passed via links from forums. Many experts in the industry are of the opinion that forum signatures are of very little SEO value but that they're very useful for getting referral traffic, especially if from a respected poster.

6) Press Release


What is it? You release a statement on press release sites such as Technorati including a backlink to your site. People are likely to link to you if the press release is relevant, interesting or pertinent.


Pros: Google thinks highly of this kind of approach, as it involves no manipulation of the search engines and relies on other people linking to you. If your press release is good, you can get strong relevant links from people.

Cons: You need something of substance to talk about in the press release which must grab people's attention. This isn't always easy and depending on your niche, it could be virtually impossible.


7) Directory Submission

What is it? Google started its initial crawl of the web by using the contents of the Open Directory Project (DMOZ). Using such directories, you post a link to your site along with a short description.


Pros: You often get to customise your backlink. This means you can use your own description, your own keywords and choose the category that suits your site the best. Some directories (such as DMOZ) require manual checking before a site is submitted, which means that a larger degree of trust is ascribed to links from these locations.

Cons: Many directories charge in order to send you a one way link or ask that you also link to them. Both of these clauses speak to the link exchange and paid link discussions above. By definition, directories have enormous numbers of outgoing links, which devalues each respective link. Also, as with article directories, the pages that your links will appear on won't have the same PageRank as the top level domain.

8) Social Bookmarking

What is it? Sites such as Digg and Stumble Upon allow you to create pages within their domain containing links to sites that are shared with peers. A bookmarks page on Digg could become viral and the content could be compelling enough that people link to you from their sites.


Pros: Very useful both for gaining backlinks and getting direct traffic, which, as has been discussed, stands a good chance of earning more backlinks as people link to you. If your site is good and has something unique, your backlinks could increase exponentially.

Cons: It's not always easy to know what pages to bookmark and there's a knack to getting people to bookmark your content. Can be spammy and can look like an unattractive marketing ploy if you're not careful.


9) Widgets/Link Bait

What is is? Link bait involves getting people to link to you automatically and not necessarily because they want to endorse you. Writing a provocative or controversial article or blog post (such as the famous 'SEO is dead' posts, for example), could irritate people enough that they want to write about you and thus link to you. Likewise, fun, interesting widgets that spread virally can have html links included in them that link back to your site.


Pros: Vast numbers of high quality links can be acquired in a short space of time. Linkbait methods can help sites rank well in highly competitive market places.

Cons: Like most link building techniques, a spammy approach is tempting. If an html link in a widget has nothing to do with the sites that the widget is on, or that the widget is about, Google has been known to penalise sites by de-indexing them.



10) Word of Mouth

What is it? You speak to people every day. Tell them about your site. Sell it to them and there's a good chance that people will want to link to you without you having to prompt them.


Pros: This is a cheap method that allows you to get links that are utterly natural in origin. There is no more a white hat technique than this.

Cons: It's a slow method of self promotion. You need to have good content and nice presentation in order to attract links.

is word of mouth really a link building method?

i mean, since backlinks is a numbers game, how can google count the discussions people have at parties, and on the telephone etc. as a factor when determining your site's worthiness? and while we're on that topic, how can google verify the validity of the person's 'word of mouth'? if i were to stand on a chair with a megaphone in the middle of the city, would i be considered a spammer?

and then there's the pagerank equivalent. how can google know if an 'expert' is talking about the site, or just some random guy trying to get the word out.

The best link are the ones your competitors can't get! Any asshole can do the basic article submissions, directories, bookmarking, etc stuff that you can pick up in the BST section for a few bucks.

Not outing my more successful techniques here, but get creative, contact site owners directly and do deals.
