Building adequate incoming links to your newly developed website is a much needed part of website promotion. But what is the best way to go about it?
There are three main methods to swapping reciprocal links with other websites, all these methods must involve you swapping links with sites that have good page ranks and have appropriate site content related to your website.
METHOD ONE: Manual Searching. The slow approach
One method is to go to each major search engine individually and search by relevant keywords for your site, visiting each site in the top 50 and browsing to their links page and add your site details either via their add link form or contacting them directly via email.
METHOD TWO: Joining a free link exchange program
The second method involves joining a free link exchange program which is a website specially made for people to exchange reciprocal links freely, these webpages can be a valuable source of finding sites to swap links with. Most of these sites are free to join with only minor account limitations, which can easily be upgraded for a small amount of $20 if the free service is not adequate enough. The the best site free link exchange program I have found, which I use regularly is LinkMarket found at www.linkmarket.net; this has an extensive link directory and is a valuable resource for webmasters.
METHOD THREE: Web Promotion Software.
The third method is to purchase web promotion software, most of the leading web promotion software have link popularity improvers to help quicken the finding of adequate reciprocal links for your websites link page. The only draw back with this method is that you have to pay for the privilege of using the software, which can but some people off, but in my opinion the speed and ease of using these software greatly outweighs the cost. One such software package I use is IBP 8.1, see my articles for further information.
These three methods should help build adequate incoming links to your site and raise your rankings in the search engines, make sure the link text back to your site contain important keywords for your site e.g
Your a shoe shop, and your main keyword is 'men shoes', the link should read
If you follow just one of these methods this will greatly help you in your quest for a steady and useful supply of incoming links to aid in your website promotion.
