practical and economical link building
Posted on 2009-04-07
I am struggling with building good quality back links to my site. Here is my strategy so far.
1. Article submission
2. Check what links point to competitors, manually contact web master of the site and ask him / her to place a link to my site
What is the an efficient way to do this? Let's say my goad is to have 20 links (page rank 5), 40 links (page rank 3), 100 links (page rank 2) pointing back to my site in 2 month. Is this goal realistic?
I think with article submission i can get 300 links pointing back to my site or even much more within a 2 month period, but the problem is that most of the sites where article are submitted are page rank 0. The site itself where the article is submitted could be page rank 3 or higher, but the page from which the article links back to my site is usually page rank 0. I am not sure how google values that link.
I think my ratio from 20 emails that I sent and beg for link inclusion is usually 1 link, so i spend a few hours researching and send out 20 email and i get one response "i will include a link to your site ..." I think it is very inefficient process.
I have seen packages online where i can buy let's say 600 links for $300 with page rank 0 or I can buy a page rank 5 link for $10 / month. I think it is not really practical for me, the niche where I am trying to get good ranking is very competitive and it would be just too expensive to do it as i would need hundreds of links.
Blogging? hmm I guess i could do it on daily basis etc ...
The bottom line is that I want to move fast and have many good quality links pointing back to my site in 2 month or so. All the research that I have done on internet does not give me solutions which would allow me to spend a few hours a day and achieve my goal. It almost seems that it should be a full time job.
I would appreciate real practical suggestions that work or have worked for you.
