What Is Link Building?
Read more about this article here...
Useful links, nice article, thanks, I really am in some need of links right now.
here are a few more general directories
and more on this site seocompany.com
Thanks, many add them soon
www.avivadirectory.com is another good one, so is www.forplex.com . BOTW is mas o menos. There are now also a few Bidding Directories where you can get a permanent listing for $1.00.
while directories do offer backlinks to our sites, google seem to prefer contextual links more than anything else these days. publishing relevant articles on social media sites like squidoo, hubpages with anchor text backlinks, setting up blogs on various different Web 2.0 sites, and syndicating unque articles manually with top article sites will give you the high quality contextual links which will worth lot more than average directory submissions.
Good information for the beginners.
Hi, it is a good information about the link building and the way of describing is so simple and people can understand easily....
Mike provides a pretty good list of directories. Just remember to avoid the offers for hundreds or thousands for directory listing for some low price. Even in link building & SEO you generally get what you pay for. Google has pretty much dismissed free directories and article sites. If an editor is not using some guidelines to approve or reject directory submissions, then it is probably not adding an value to your link building efforts.
The best backlink profile includes links from a variety of sources. Other related sites, unique articles, blog posts, blog comments, social media and so on. It's hard work, but the only way to get to page one on Google in any competitive niche.
Wow good article... amazing information about link building.....thanks for your sharing the information....
There is some very good information about link building in this article, but I would have to agree that although submitting to directories is a good idea it is important to stay away from cheap mass directory submissions. Also, try and focus on contextual linking. Social media sites, blogs, and article sites still provide ample opportunity to vary your link building efforts and these links often do provide more value than directories.
Yes, Social Networking websites can provide Good Backlinks to your website if the Social Networking site provides a "Do Follow" link. Even if the Social Networking website does not provide a "Do Follow" link, you shouldn't be worried about it as you can atleast get some amount of Traffic from a Social Networking website which cannot be expected from Directories.
Doing link building is definitely on the list of tasks for any website owner, but especially for those engaging in some sort of eCommerce activities. Sites that sell products are essentially worthless without visitors, and the only way for them to be found (by people or search engines) is through links. It's not a hugely fun process to build links, but it definitely works! This is why outsourcing those functions remains extremely popular.
Definitely, Link Building is not an easy task and one have to wait for Months and Years to do that. The content of your website also makes a huge difference when it comes to building Links. If your website content is good, you will get Backlinks automatically and you won't have to strive hard for it. So you should make sure that you create quality content for your website and then work on Building links for your website.
Its always good to see people coming to read over a very old thread of mine. I hoped it help some but, at this time, I think it needs reworking as a whole as many points that are present in this thread need reworking.
Remember link building is always key for any web site
