How To Get Back Links

It can be tough to get other web site owners to link to your web site. Web site owners are usually not trying to be mean when they say they will not link to you, they just don’t want to share their page rank. I wrote this page to talk about how to convince other web masters to link to your web site. We’ll go over a few tactics you can use to increase your chances of getting a nice link back to your site.

 

Firstly, you can try just asking the other web master for a free back link to your site. Ensure that the website you ask has some commonalities with your site’s niche and that you give them some specific key word anchor text to use. You’ll also want to refer to a specific page and explain to them how your site relates to the particular page on their site.

 

Shoot the other web master a personally written email. One that lets them know that you are not just some automated email sent out by a robot. Including some information about their site and giving them your name and personal phone number is a great way to show that you are a legitimate person. If you do not get a response within a week, feel free to send another message asking if they received the first and again asking for a link. This will ensure that they know that you are indeed a real person and not a robot. It is important to prove this because web masters are constantly spammed with robots asking for back links.

 

The next tactic is to offer a reciprocal link. Basically you give them a back link from your website and they do the same from their website. Some have said that this negates the back link power of each link, but this is unproven. Also it can’t hurt to get some additional traffic from a relevant site. If the other web master’s site is useful to your visitors, why not link to it?

 

Another method is to offer some free content for the site owner. Web masters love it when they can get additional pages without investing any time or money for them. Offer them some free web pages in exchange for some back links to your site.

 

Give a site some money or other valuable gift and you are sure to get a back link from them. Gifts are usually better because you will find that you end up spending less money than if you were to make an actual cash payment. Paid links on a web site can be quite costly depending on the pageranking of the web site and the amount of traffic it receives.

 

Another great way to get links is to hire an outside organization to get them for you. A professional company will know how to bargain with other web masters better than you. It is their job to do this and they simply have much more experience and professional training in this matter. Just make sure you choose a company that has some high quality seo packages to ensure that you get high quality back links. Also be sure that they get a “dofollow” link so that you will get the increased page rank and link juice benefits.
