30DC – Day 27 – Great Backlink Techniques

30DC27This was an awesome day of training and one that can be easily used for all your blogs and sites.  As I’ve said on some other days during the training, creating backlinks is very important for your long term Google ranking health.  The more quality backlinks you have the higher and more authoritative your website will become in the eye of Google.   High Quality Backlinks huh?  What exactly are those and how do they differ from other links back to your site, let me explain.

The main thing that you need to know about High Quality Backlinks is that they have three main traits..

  1. They come from Keyword-Relevant Web Pages
  2. They come from High-Value Web Pages
  3. They do not use “NoFollow” attributes

“NoFollow” attributes means that the site will tag all links with the word NoFollow. By doing so search engines won’t recognize them as backlinks and if they aren’t recognized as such then it won’t help your SEO.  Market Samurai has a tool that tells you if a site allows backlinks, but you can also use firefox pluggins like SeoQuake.

High-Value Web Pages are those that have High-Quality Backlinks of their own.  I’m not sure how to research this without MS but when I find out I will edit this post.

Some great places to get backlinks from are…

  • relevant blogs.  You can find these blogs by using the google blog search tool
  • relevant forums.  To find forums, just search google for forum: your keywords
  • Finding web 2.0 pages such as Squidoo, Hubpages, etc…

Another great way to get backlinks is to get pingbacks from other blogs.   A ping back is a link that points back to your blog from a website that you’ve referred to in one of your posts.  So all that has to be done to get a link from another site pointing back to yours is to put a link on your blog, easy right?  Well there are some limitations to this strategy which are not all blogs allow pingbacks and they are sometimes moderated by the blog owner, so they won’t always appear instantly or at all.

My Stuff for real estate wholesaling

I’ve been using Market Samurai to find blogs, forums and web 2.0 sites to post comments on and ask questions.  There aren’t many in my desired keywords, but if they allow backlinks and pingbacks I’m trying my hardest to leave good quality comments.  It is very important to leave well thought out comments because for one the owner of the site will approve it and second it will entice readers to click through to your page to find out what else you might have to say.  This strategy will not show immediate results so I can’t report if it’s working or not.

Earlier this week I get notice from ezinearticles that my probate article got rejected AGAIN!?!?  For the same reason as last time, apparently the content of the article does not deliver on what the title proclaims it should.  I tried changing the title around, but still a no go.  I might post that article to my blog and then write another one and post it on Ezines.  I hate being rejected!

What’s Next?

Looks like day 28 is about backlinks again, must be a pretty important topic huh?

  2. Market Samurai is simply the best keyword research and SEO tool! I’m using it on a daily basis.
    It should be a mandatory tool for every internet marketer.

  4. OMG – Ezines is no joke. I have 9 articles on there now and 2 that have been pending forever. I’m really trying to get to the point where I can the status level that means MUCH faster reviews. It’s been taking them 12 days to review my articles and if I get rejected and then fix it, I wait another 5 days. It’s a bit exhuasting but I figure that I can get something on eZines I can get it ANYWHERE so I go for the hardest one first.

    1. I don’t think it’s possible to ever put a time frame on how long it will take. Just think about it for a second, you aren’t the only one trying to improve your ranking with backlinks so you are competing with the other sites in your category. If you do a better job then they do of getting high authority back links then you will rise faster, but if the other guy does better you will lag behind him. Get what I’m saying?
