To be able to improve your search engine rankings, getting backlinks is important. But getting links from other sites can be difficult. Here are 2 creative approaches you can try to get more backlinks.
Start a Community of Websites Among the simplest ways to gain backlinks is to start other websites and have them linked to yours. Blogs are an excellent way to get traffic simply because there’s no cost, they give free traffic, and are easily searchable all through the blogging community. I’ve seen other numerous websites which target a younger audience even making use of myspace as a source of traffic and backlinks. And the list goes on and on for other quick sites you can start with a good amount of traffic.
E-mail Campaigns A few people are reluctant to get this done simply because they think nobody would actually visit their website if the email even gets opened, or they have no clue who to email a promotion letter to. While the individual who does not have an idea of his audience can very easily fix this problem, I’d say for very web site which has updated content that isn’t gibberish, someone has to like it and for every e-mail sent out, there’s probably at least 10% that the e-mail gets opened if you target your audience precisely. Give yourself some confidence, and keep in mind that none of these techniques would get your website blacklisted or has any risk to it, aside from wasting your time. But if you have the time to waste, research on who your audience is, get a list of emails of your audience and compile it in an excel sheet, and start your e-mail campaigns. One individual that I work with has a job site, which gets employers and job seekers together. Well all job websites needed jobs, so he started emailing to a number of colleges and got links for Rutgers, Harvard, as well as other colleges across the country. Doing this boosted his Google rankings from 2/10 to 6/10. Just bear in mind that one e-mail won’t do the trick. You should keep emailing the people in your excel sheet, but change the content of the e-mail each time you do so.
Unless you don’t have a good amount of time to spend on getting backlinks, I would not be concerned about how well your methods are working. Most of the techniques listed above as well as others you may think of should provide you with some increase in traffic that would last a really long time, plus boosting your search engine rankings. These things suck up a great deal of time, but the rewards can be high.
