The Easy, Affordable Link Building Strategy
Effective SEO is all about affordable link building! No matter how perfect you make your website, or how high-quality your content is, it’s the links that will make Google see your website as an authority on a topic, and the links that will drive traffic! So you need to have a good affordable link building strategy in place before you even think about blasting ahead with your content creation! Think about the steps to take to build high quality links to each piece of content you are planning to make! How does Google value your links??? Google looks at links as being like little votes for you website! They want link building that looks natural, not forced, and they want to see a variety of links. This means that you need to ensure that each piece of content has link diversity, i.e. some links from social media, some from low ranking article sites, some from high ranking article sites, some from other blogs, some from video sites, etc. In natural link building you would tend to see more links from the lower ranking sites (i.e. pages that don’t rank highly in Google) and social networks, and lot fewer links from high ranking sites (i.e. the more popular article directories or video sites). So you want to follow this pattern when building your links!
Don’t focus on JUST building high-rank links, or JUST getting social media links. Your affordable link building strategy needs to include ALL types of links.
This is how I generate hundreds of links to each piece of content on this website:
1. Create Content that is HIGHLY targeted to a keyword! (i.e. this article is obviously targeting the keyword “affordable link building”)
-Do a minimal amount of on-page SEO for the article (i.e. include the keyword at least once per hundred words, have the keyword underlined and italiced, have a picture with the keyword as an ALT tag,etc…actually I get SEOPressor to tell me what to do, but I keep it dead simple!)
2. Build Immediate Social Links!
-I use OnlyWire to post a link to my piece of content, with a catchy status update, automatically to 40 social sites! OnlyWire is a free service that will do this automatically for you and save you loads of time.
-Use TribePro to get others to create social links for you! This is the most effective way to get lots of social links immediately, everything I post gets a couple hundred links instantly.
3. Build LOTS of low-PR links fast!
-I use Article Marketing Robot to submit my content to literally thousands of lower rank article directories. Remember, Google expects to see more lower rank links than higher ranked ones, so it’s important to get lots! You can use their built-in Spinner to make sure that each article it submits is about 30% unique so that Google doesn’t see your original content as internet spam! AMR is a one-time cost, but it’s a very affordable link building tool….and it’s worth it as this set of links is probably the most important!
4. Build Blog Links
-Blog links are typically medium ranked on Google, so you will have slightly less in this category to look natural, but they will help your articles to STAY on the front page of Google. Unfortunately, there is no good free option for blog submissions, but I use an affordable link building blog submitter: My Article Network. If you are on a very tight budget, get Article Marketing Robot and leave My Article Network until you have generated some income!
5. High Rank Article Links
-These links are VITAL to you looking like an authority on your keyword as these article directories are considered authority sites by Google.
-Submit your article with a link back to your original to about ten of these sites MANUALLY. This is a very affordable link building strategy, as it’s free
-You don’t have to have spun these to make it unique, you can simply submit your article as it is, but make sure your link goes back to your blog!
-Here’s a list of the top article submission sites: Click Here. Pick about ten that aren’t labelled NF (as in their links wont give you any “link juice”), sign up for them and submit!
6. Video Links
-If you REALLY want to kick it up a notch create a short video promoting the article. Put this up on Youtube and 4 or 5 other video sharing sites. Put a link to your article in the description box!
-Nervous about video??? It can be really easy. Check out this article/video about how to make videos for Youtube quickly and easily: MLM Tips: Video Marketing.
The is the MOST affordable link building strategy you will come across as you only need to buy the Article Marketing Robot once, and the blog submission is completely optional at the start, and everything else is FREE! What makes this strategy work is CONSISTENCY!! If you do this strategy just once a day for the next 90 days, I guarantee you will be SHOCKED at the increase in traffic to your website.
You just have to commit to following this affordable link building strategy, and you can’t lose!
