Hey! Honest Housewife here.
To help your site to rank well in the search engines you will need to do some linking which works really well if you know what you are doing. However, if you don’t know how to create links properly then you could just create a big mess
When you create links you want to do so in moderation. Some people will buy linking services that will create thousands of links very fast, but this is not always the best approach. As with many things in life, taking it slow is often the best choice.
To have a successful website you want to focus on quality content rather than quantity. So if your website is chock-a-block full of bad quality content and links that aren’t producing then feel free to remove all that wasted space and focus completely on good content.
When you have your website complete with good quality content across several pages then you can add links to the different pages. Each page should be focusing on a keyword phrase and you should try to rank each individual page for its main keyword phrase. When you link from one page on your site to another you are encouraging your visitors to browse through numerous pages on your website rather than look at the main page and leave.
Deep linking is all about using the right link to a specific page on the website. You need to use relevant pages of content to link to your other pages and these links can come from within your own site or from other sites. Have your inner pages on your site linking to your main home page.
If you advertise for link exchanges, tell other website owners that you are limiting the number of links you take so you can keep open some spots for future sources, this will entice other website owners to want to exchange links with you before you reach your limit.
Because you are limiting the number of links this is also enticing to website owners as it is more beneficial for them to be among a limited number of links coming from a site. Because there are less links there is less competition among links on your website and this is a big benefit for website owners. It also lets website owners know that you are a responsible and professional link building and one that would be good to do business with.
This method will also increase your link popularity and you will soon be receiving more traffic to the numerous pages on your website. You will have more leverage when asking other website owners to exchange links and when you have high amounts of traffic and link popularity you may even be able to start charging website owners to place links on your site.
By increasing the value of your links this means that those who exchange links with you are also good, high quality websites which is always good for your own business.
By including links to other sites on your site you are sending traffic to those sites. Not everyone likes to do this but the fact is that although you are sending some traffic to other sites you are receiving so much more traffic that it doesn’t really matter. You are building strong links to and from your site and this is going to help your ranking within the search engines and that is always a good thing.
Have a great day!
