Links are what makes the Internet work, and links are what make your website grow.
There are many ways to collect links to your sites, some easy, some not so easy.
- Beg for links from everyone you know (how long is that list? people you know with ranked websites that are relevant to your own website?)
- Cruise the Internet chat rooms and discussion boards, posting messages and creating links back with your signature in these posts (Most likely marked No Follow by the discussion board webmaster)
- Offer a link exchange - Ok if you know the other website or blog owner, but not usually too effective with ranked sites with any real Google Juice and Google will actually deduct from your page rank score if you have too many reciprocal links on your site. One way links are best for you.
- Join a Web Link Echange Ring - alright, these have been around since Moby Dick was a minnow - some swear by them but I have heard that Google really frowns upon collecting links for your site this way, and if Google does not like it, I don't do it.
- - Sometimes this can get you in trouble, unless it is done right. and to do it right you need to have a strategy and you should know more than what is promoted in link exchange groups.
- - Offers education in the form of a free guide to link buying which explains more than just why you should buy your links through Text Link Ads. I have read it and I was impressed with the amount of real education included in this guide which is offered with for trying the service.
I have tried the old fashioned methods of web rings and I have gone through all of the can't miss super affiliate long sales letter "Systems" for building links and page rank and ultimately traffic and I know there are very few easy or free ways to build up traffic to a site besides old fashioned content generation (some say free - I say valuable) and a well placed and yes - monetized link building plan.
Buying links through a service like is not all that expensive when you consider the time you will not have to waste on building these links through other means. Do yourself a favor and check out this method of link building, it could just increase your sales and the effects of building up page rank are long term.
