SEO or Search Engine Optimization is the process of using various techniques to improve a site’s ranking in the search engines, thus generating more visitors. And one of the most effective ways of promoting one’s website is through back links. These links are the keys to having better site traffic.
But which links are most effective? This article shall provide you with the right information regarding which types of back links really work.
On a personal level, all back links are effective in their own sense and to a certain extent. For instance, if you create links from one social network or website, you are taking the risk of putting all of your money on a single chance. A better strategy would be dividing the money and distributing it into many probabilities. Of course if you are to pay everything for each of the probabilities, then you will lose money. However, a wiser thing to do is to choose where you place your bets. There are a lot of paid methods that guarantee success but you can also do that by not paying huge amounts of money or even free.
One effective thing to do is to find related websites and offer free trade space or link exchange. You get to be linked with his site and vice versa.
Creating daily blogs that links to your website is another free method of back linking. Make sure that your blogs are about the products or services you are offering. A well written blog will generate more views and thus increasing the chance of selling your products.
Three of the top article directories are Ezinearticles.com, Go Articles, and Amazine. Make sure to post your informative product related articles on these free sites to upgrade your visibility. On my opinion, posting at some of the directories is really a waste of time since they don’t allow relevant linking within the body of the article. Some directories don’t even employ the use of author boxes or signatures.
Social Networking Sites or SNS are also great ways to promote your product. You must have a complete and utter confidence with the products you are selling for you to sell it to your family and friends. Some of the SNS with saturated users are Facebook, Myspace and Twitter. These giants will surely help you climb up the top. And best of all, they are free!
