Happy New Years, Happy 2013 Just wanted to write about a quick method I have found really effective. Whenever you are building links, it's IMPORTANT to have natural looking anchor texts to your home page. This means, you want a link that may say JUST your company's name, or your company URL. You want at least 30% of your links to contain this - otherwise Google will quickly give you the penalty. So long as you have some authoritative links from relevant pages; you can continue the black hat link building. By an authority page, you want links from a page that contains your niche or keyword in the Title Tag, the meta description tag, and at least the major title tags on the home page. It can become really difficult to find these links and can become really costly if you were to pay for them. I have a trick that will help you find these kind of links quickly and easily. The trick is to use online news sources. A news article will get hundreds if not thousands of natural backlinks, instantly boosting it's page authority. You will want your website on these kind of news site. Reporters are ALWAYS wanting a source to quote and are looking for experts they can quote based on the news article they are writing about. This is the method you will use Let's say you are in the credit card niche or personal finance niche. You will start by looking for writers in this niche. You need to have a presentable website or blog. If your website looks like shit, no one will want to quote you. 1. Contact a news reporter by email You can often find their email on the news section by doing some quick googling or clicking the contact us. There is another website that can help you find a reporter. If you do some googling you can find this site, I don't want to post the link here. I am not associated with it. There are over 30,000 reporters looking for sources to quote. 2. Send them a friendly email 3. They will email you whenever they need a quote 4. Simply let them know your opinion 5. They will format and quote you nicely and you will get a ******** link back to your site! Simply, Enjoy your high authority links!
