are a few ways above to keep you busy getting backlinks to your
website. Remember think out-of-the-box for different
ways you can get people to link to your website.
doing these backlink NO-NOs:
not exchange links with "free-for-all" or "farm
links". What are these? These are website pages which are
a listing of 50 or more links all on one page that have no relevancy
to each other or to the website they are on. Try to avoid these
as they can be destroy all the hard work you have done to get
backlinks if you get banned from the search engine. Read Google's
policy on link farms...
avoid linking with websites that are not relevent to yours.
Remember your target market and who they are, how they surf
the net and what websites they visit. If you are a website selling
dog food, most likely a backlink coming from a website selling
photocopying services will not get you a sale. A backlink on
a local veternarian's website however may just snag you a sale
avoid webrings. Webrings are a bunch of similar websites who
all join together under one banner that is put on all of their
websites that when clicked on randomly pulls up one of the websites
within the group. Reason I avoid these is that most want this
banner on the main page of your webiste which takes away from
the professionalism of your website plus when clicked on takes
you directly to a competitor. Is it worth a backlink to lose
a sale? Nah!
