My Tips to Increase Your Back Links

Article Submission - By writing quality and informative articles, you can use these as a great method of getting links back to your site. All of the top article submission sites, like EzineArticles and Article Base, allow you to have a link back to your site when posting a new article. If your articles then get picked up and republished, the new publisher must also include your link, so if you write something really useful and it gets syndicated, not only will this lead to more traffic but also too many more links all pointing back at your site.

Press Releases - Many of the paid and free press release sites allow you to have at least one link back to your site within the press release. This allows you to get your link on the main site, but also then onto any other site that picks and publishes the press release, giving you the chance to spread many links around the internet via releasing just one quality and informative press release.

Blogging - Everyone loves to blog and everyone loves to read informative, controversial or slightly wacky blog posts. When you write a blog post, make sure you link some of the keywords back to your website and make sure you let everyone know that you wrote it, again, using this as a method to link back to your website.

Blog Comments - Most blogs and blog writers want feedback and comments about what they have written, as this is the kind of interactivity of blogs and the way they are meant to be used. The majority of blogs will let you comment and have a link back to your site, just make sure your comments make sense and you are not just leaving a comment for the link back, it has to be worthwhile or will be nothing more than spam.

Reciprocal Linking - Swapping links with sites similar or in the same niche as yours is still a fair way of getting links back. By no means is it effective as it was many years ago, but it can still help to get decent links back to your site, just make sure you limit how many times you do this as you do not want to many links pointing out from your site and also choose wisely who you approach to swap links with.

One Way Directory Submissions - Directory submissions are still one of the most cost effective ways of getting links back to your site. When doing this, make sure that you vary your anchor text, only submit the most relevant category and try to pick directories that have been established for some time and are totally free of spammy or questionable content.

Social Bookmarking - Social Bookmarking sites like Digg, Furl and Twitter allow you to have links back to your site. Although some of these will not help with your page rank as they are often nofollow links, they can help with traffic, indexing and will all contribute to the level of links you have pointing back to your site.

Reviews - If a website is selling a product, they often give purchasers and users and chance to leave feedback and reviews on the product concerned. As long as you are writing honest and thoughtful reviews, many of these sites will have no problem allowing you to have a link to your site in them. This can be quite difficult to get just right, but if you do you could end up having some real quality links from product sales websites, in your own industry or niche.

Forum Posting - No matter what your website is about, there will be forums and message boards relating to it on the internet. This gives you a great opportunity to start joining in on relevant discussions and profiling your company or website on these public speaking boards. Just make sure you do actually contribute and not just join to promote, as you will soon be removed and the regular posters will consider your company or website to be nothing more than spam.
