WSPH Link Building Strategies to Get More Visitors

You never hear anyone complaining that they have too many visitors to their blog, right?

 If you do you are hanging out with idiots.

Ok, link building is a little dry. It’s like that kid in high school who you saw carrying around the worn out copy of George Orwell’s, Animal Farm for months on end. I heard it was a great book but who had the time to read that crap? Ok, I caved in because some cute chick I liked that I met at the Depeche Mode concert was trying to talk to me about it. Not the best reason to read a classic but I did it any way. Damn, I learned a lot, think back to what it meant & use it currently in my thinking.

What does this have to do with link building?

Just because something seems boring, dry  and you think you wont’ get anything out of it, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be looked into.

If you want your site to rank well in the search engines you need an effective link building strategy. The search engines like to see links pointing back to your site, the more links they see, the more important they think your site is and the higher your site will rank. But you don’t want just any old links. The best kinds of back links are links with relevant keywords. The math is simple!

Resist the temptation to buy thousands of links, exploding your link popularity overnight will get your site penalized.

Linking with Relevant Keywords

How you link is important. Create anchor text using keywords for your back links when you can.
Anchor text is a clickable link, it is simply the text used to link to your site. The search engines use this text to help them decide what your page, is about. So, when possible, choose what the anchor text will be and make sure it includes your keywords. This is more simple than you think.
You want to use both your main keywords, and variations of your keywords. Try to vary the text you use to link to your site so that it looks natural. And remember that each page on your site ranks for its own keywords so the keywords you use when you link to a specific page on your site won’t necessarily be the same as when you link to your home page.

You won’t always be able to specify the anchor text, but make sure you take advantage of the times when you are allowed.
