Link building is one of the most effective ways to promote your website. When you are starting out and still in the process of familiarizing yourself with the online world, thinking of ways to land that coveted first page ranking is your ultimate goal. However, one of the most difficult tasks is achieving that first page ranking. Because as we know, you do not have any online presence if you are not in the first three pages of search engine results.
Since we are now talking about link building, we believe that you are religiously updating your website at least once every week so it attracts search engine spiders. We are also not here to talk about content because if you are already into it, you have already taken the time to study and write good content. Content aside, how do we land that first page ranking?
There are a lot of articles online showing how you can get links to your websites. These may be reciprocal links or one way links. We have also seen information that buying links may get you penalized and get demoted in rankings so this might not be a good way to go about link building.
How to Attract Customers through Link Building
Building links requires a lot of work. We have seen the time consuming reciprocal links with other websites and directory links. But if you want a more effective but less time consuming way, you should look into writing and publishing articles.
We are assuming that you are already an expert with writing content related to your website and the kind of business that you are under. So it will not be difficult for you to write and publish articles that will result to more effective links. Since you are link building, placing a link to your website within the articles is automatic. The more you write, the more chances that your website link will be out there. The first few articles will be hard, but we assure you, the subsequent ones will be easier especially if you focus your eyes on the prize. Since you are already an expert in the field of your business, you can write about every aspect of that business. The first topics will not be easy but you will surprise yourself in your capacity to produce more. The ultimate goal of link building is to put your website in the first page of search engine results.
If you average ten articles per month, these articles will be picked up by different e-zines, blogs, or other people’s websites. This will be good for link building because each article that gets published somewhere will have a link to your own website. This is not only good for building links but will also drive traffic to your website. And we are all aware that good traffic means potential customers.
