I'm new here and here is something I wrote the other day just to contribute a little bit. I hope it helps somebody out. 1. Free Content In Exchange For Links There's many webmasters out there in your niche looking for free unique content - you just have to find them and provide it. Here's a few search strings that have WORKED WONDERS for me. bluewidget guest blogger wanted bluewidget guest writer bluewidget guest blog post writer bluewidget add article bluewidget add blog post bluewidget add content bluewidget submit content bluewidget submit article bluewidget submit post bluewidget submit blog post (replace bluewidget with your niche) 2. Buying Blog Posts and Reviews on Established Blogs Trot over to any webmaster Buy/Sell/Trade section and make a thread that you're buying blog posts. You'll get offers, but most of them will be junk. Sift through the dirt to find the gold. Search for established blogs that are relevant to the niche you?re in for the best result. Make sure the blogs are aged and not dropped - this tool will help you find out: http://whois.domaintools.com You can also find good deals on posts from blog networks, but its anyone?s guess as to how long these networks will keep their sites up after the sales stop. Make sure the blogs are spread across a healthy amount of C Class Ips. 3. Create Squidoos and Hubpages - Web 2.0 Marketing Write some content and create your own Squidoos and Hubpages. Link back to your site twice within the article using your targeted keywords and voila, instant contextual links. Hubpages will keep the link nofollow until you hit a score of 70. You?ll have to add pictures, unique content, and give it a few links to raise that score. Getting contextual links from these domains will benefit your site(s) nicely. 4. Article Marketing - Oldie but Goodie Article marketing - the ?ol? faithful? when it comes to building links. It still works, and works well. Anytime I see some of my rankings drooping I will fire off some articles and notice a pick-up a week later. Contextual links galore, make sure the general topic of your articles matches the anchor text of your links in your resource box. 5. Hunting for Contexual Links on Do-Follow Blog Posts This is a nice little way to build contextual links because the content is already on the page, all you have to do is exploit it (and hope your comment/link gets approved). Using tools like Fast Blog Finder you can find blog posts that contain your keyword somewhere on the page. When it comes to link relevancy, it doesn?t get any better than that.
