Does anyone else get sick of asking for links?

    A big part of my job for one of my clients is to link build and i spend about an entire day each week trying to source and acquire quality links to their site.

    they are a good client and im keen to keep them and help boost their rankings in the serps with some good links back to their site but i get sick of 'begging' for links and most of the time getting ignored by people i email or pm.

    i know you dont generally just ask for a backlink and i do all the usual things to try and acquire links (create original content, write relevant articles, submit to as many directories as possible) but it still feels like its asking in disguise

    it seems like you turn over a ton of dirt to get one link (often a link thats not even worth that much).

    i spend time trying to build relationships with key people in the industry (using linkedin, twittering them or sending them an email) but 90% of the time i get no reply and i get the feeling they think im a spammer, which im not! i have quality content that i create and spend hours on, researching and writing. you get told that seo is all about content but it just doesnt seem to be working for me.

    has anyone had real success link building and if so what techniques did you use?

    Hi,

    I understand the pain of acquiring quality links for your websites. However these days, i've been doing it bit differently.

    I am sure, you must have heard about link wheel, which I believe is the best way to acquire natural and lot of quality links in just few days. You rankings would also shoot up in just few days.

    Create an article and rephrase make at least 10 - 12 copies of same content with at least 40 - 45% of unique content. Once you are done with the 10 - 12 article you can submit it to web2.0 websites like hubpages, squidoo, blogsome, etc. but make sure all these hub page must be linked to each other one link should goes to your main website. that means there would two or more links in each article one to your web 2.0 sites and one to your main website like:

    Squidoo is linked to hubpages and your main website, then hubpage is linked to blogger and your main website, then blogger is linked to anther web 2.0 site and your main site and so on......
    Hope it would help you to acquire some quality links for your clients.

    thanks khemraj ... i know what youre referring to, i used to work for an affiliate marketing company and this was one of their secret techniques but im skeptical of its true value in terms of passing link equity through to your site.

    it does provide a bunch of quick backlinks to your but the value of those links is debatable as a lot of those article marketing sites have dropped in googles eyes and the quality ones are coming down hard on the number of active links youre allowed.

    sometimes its better to have less links than a bunch of bad links. thanks for the comment tho
