from other websites pointing to your site can sometimes
seem very hard and time consuming. There are several ways
to get people interested in your site, you've just got
to be creative with it and think more in terms of putting
yourself in the other webmaster's shoes- figure out what
the advantages are for them to be linked to you!
One thing that
you often hear is that to attain a high Page Rank
thru Google, (which, let's face it, is the Big Daddy of
Search Engines) that you have to link to other high PR
sites. This is not necessarily true. No one is 100% on
the relevance of PR rank affecting a link exchange.
Link to as many
non-link farm sites that are similar to your site
as you possibly can, because the more inbound links pointing
to your site that you have, the more search engines will
look at your site as an important site in the business
or opportunity that you are promoting or selling.
So don't look down on sites that have low a low
PR, everyone at one point or another has a zero PR, doesn't
mean that they don't get traffic, you just never know.
Just because someone has a low PR doesn't mean that they
don't get monster traffic to their site, whether it's
through pay-per-click advertising, or other means, so
no one should turn their nose up at anyone who doesn't
have a great PR.
If you are a new
webmaster and have just started a new website, sell
the fact that you're new, and that you're going to be
focusing on putting quality CONTENT on your site.
Because, A Number 1 as far as Google is concerned is to
have relevant content on your site relating to your business
or opportunities. Making a business grow and succeed is
based solely on the ability of a webmaster to make his/or
her site relevant to search engine spiders, whom look
every day for great content.
Another idea is
to promote what you are advertising to a webmaster,
showing that the product/or opportunity is viable and
is something that makes your website worth linking to.
Either by having testimonials, or by having them sign
up as an affiliate to see results for themselves, showing
how much you believe in your opportunity might show a
webmaster that you are committed to making your site everything
it can possibly be, and thus, possibly giving their website
Even with the
hassles that go along with linking to other sites
it really is a great way to show that your site does have
importance. Being partners through links with others in
your online business makes for long lasting business relationships,
and support for others that are getting started.
There's room for everyone to succeed online, and
helping others along the way is as important to the growth
of online business as anything else. Here's to your success!
