Backlinks are an essential marketing strategy to build any type of business and make easy money. There are many ways to go about getting them and many benefits of having them.
Search engines like to see sites with a lot of backlinks. Each link back to your site counts as a “vote”. The more votes you have, the more popular the search engines see your site as. This will lead to achieving a higher ranking in search engines. This will result in more free targeted traffic to your Website.
Years back, the easiest way to get ranked high in search engines was to have as many links back to your site as you could get. People started trying to cheat the system by purchasing links anywhere they could get their hands on regardless if they were relevant to their site or not just to get ranked quickly to make some easy money. Search engines are now wise to this and will actually ban your site from their listings if you are caught doing this. It is best to stick with gaining backlinks with quality sites that are within the same niche as your site is.
There are many different ways to gain links back to your site. One of the most effective ways is through writing articles. Writing articles with quality content, linking your Website to the resource box and submitting them to high ranking article directories is a great way to get those inbound links. Other places you can submit your articles to are Squidoo and Hubpages. These two sites alone are quite popular with Google and generally anything on them gets ranked fairly high when the right keywords are chosen.
Posting on forums and blogs are another great way to get those links. However, this approach needs to be done correctly. For forums, you simply register for a free account and place a link to your Website in the signature line. Then you simply participate in the forum and share helpful information, answer or ask questions and just become interactive. The more forums you participate in, the more links back to your site you will get. Post helpful and relevant comments on blogs and each blog will gain you a link.
You can gain backlinks through Websites like Digg, Technorati and Del.icio.us. These are quality links too because they already have a high page rank in search engines which puts more importance on your link. Also, another advantage of this method is that other users will grab your links and place them on their sites which will get your site spread all over.
Web directories also rank high in search engines and could be used as well. These places will get your Website all over the Internet all while helping you achieve a higher ranking.
These are just some ways to gain quality backlinks back to your Website to help you make easy money. Taking consistent action to gain these links will pay off in the long run as you will begin to receive passive, free traffic because of these links as well as the page rank they have helped your Website achieve.
