The process of link building is both an art and a science. There are countless ways to add links but not all will work for a particular site. When putting up a new website, it is advised that bloggers and publishers try out as many techniques as possible to see what works.
1. Post RegularlyPost great content on a regular basis. Having a good stream of articles posted on your website has several advantages for a new website. A new website may not have a lot of readers at first but once people start coming in, it is reading great content which makes them stay and want to share it with other people. When writing content, try to direct your reader to other posts in your website by creating internal links. You can also choose to link to posts on other websites that you own, as long as the topic is relevant.
2. ResearchTry to do some research on your competition and determine what their link building strategy is. You may get a few useful tips such as finding niche directories.
3. Build RelationshipsWhether you are just starting out in creating a name for yourself or if you already have a large base of followers, it is important to build and maintain relationships. Get to know the people who are working in the same niche as you are. You can start by leaving valuable comments about the post you have just read or the website in general. Most websites will allow you to include a link to your website. Other than building a relationship with the website owner, you may also get a few of the followers to check out your website as well.
Networking has many benefits. Once you start building good relationships with people in your field, it becomes easier to ask for or exchange links. You can also get more opportunities to create guest posts on other websites. Mingling with the crowd is one sure way to help promote your website and get your name out there.
