If you want to increase your organic rankings, get more traffic and more customers, then you need to work on your SEO. In particular, you need to get high quality backlinks to your site since backlinks are a very important ranking factor for most search engines and especially Google. Therefore, you will need to get other websites to link to your site. In this article, we will cover a couple of ways in which you can do just that.
Firstly, you need to post great content on your site that other sites in your niche find relevant and naturally make them want to link to. So, you need to be an authority in your niche and create content that is not only interesting but also extremely helpful to your visitors. You should strive to create well structured pages that have lots of unique pictures, graphical content, videos etc.
Another tip is to link out to other sites within your niche. The more you spread the link love, the more other sites will want to link back to you. However, you should not link to a site, just to get a link back. Instead, you should take time to link to other sites on relevant articles where they will actually get real traffic back to their site. This sort of behavior will make other site owners like you and help you by not only linking to your site but give you valuable referrals to other sites.
Thirdly, another great way to get other site owners to notice you is to comment on their websites and blogs on a regular basis. You can include a link back to your site in your comment or on your name. However, when using this strategy, you should take care to leave a comment that is actually thought provoking and shows that you read their content. You will automatically get a link back to your site once the link is approved, however, this is done merely to open the lines of communication between you and the website owner. Once you have commented on the blog a couple of times, you can then send them an email and ask for a link back or if they would be willing to publish a guest post. In most cases, they will agree and you will get a contextual link that is do-follow on their site once they post the guest post.
In addition to emailing other site owners and pitching a guest post, you can straight out ask for a link back in their resource page. This is especially easy if you have a piece of content that would fit perfectly on their resource page. You can easily create a page on your site that provides this content and then send the link request. In most cases, the website owner will agree once the page is valuable and provides great information for their readers.
We have just looked at a couple of ways that you can get other websites to link to yours. Once you follow the above guidelines, you will definitely be able to get dozens of links back to your site in a matter of weeks. You can also link your site to CSS Galleries( http://thecssgallerylist.com) and those galleries that accept your site will of course provide you with a quality backlink.
