    This is probably old news to many of you but I am posting it for some newer folks like me who maybe had no clue how to link build or all of the different methods. It's also probably not exactly that black hat but since there is a tiny amount of subterfuge, I thought posting it here was wise.

    Now this work particularly well if you use a site like majestic.com or something similar as a way to determine backlinks on any given site. I will lay it out step by step and if you have questions, I will try to answer them. I have used this technique successfully, so I know it works but YMMV.

    1) Find top sites that are in your niche and see if they have a "resources" or "links" section. You can go to google and search. For instance, if you were in the pet niche, you might type in "pet care links section", "list of pet care resources" or even something like "links to pet care sites". People list things diffrently on their sites some might say "our friends" or "useful Links" But if you use your brain you can figure it out and what people tend to list.

    2) Second step is to identify dead links on the pages that you have determined have a links or resources section. You can do this by using a plugin for your browser. There is one called "chek my links" for Chrome and one I think called "link checker" for Firefox. I am not recommending either but I use "check my links" on Chrome without too many issues.

    3) Once you have made a list of the sites resources pages and a list of dead links on each of those pages, run the dead links through Majestic or some similar software that is going to tell you the backlinks for those dead sites. A dead site could be 404'd or it could be redirected to an advertising page now or it may be just parked at a domain host. As long as the original site is dead or it's not a new site in the same niche then you should be good to go. The sites that are dead that have the strongest profile are the ones you should use in this next step. So if you have 4 or 5 dead links from the same resources page, use the one that shows the strongest backlink and seo profile. Sometimes all of them are shitty and have spammy backlinks, don't use those obviously.

    4) The next step is to go back to the top sites resources or links page and see if you can find a way to contact the webmaster or site owner. It may not be on the resources/links page so look around and go to the contact me section or if you can't find it on the site, do a whois and see if you can determine who the contact person is. If that doesn't work, do a little detective work on google and see if you can find an email address or something associated with that domain.

    5) Contact the person in charge of the links and say or write the something like: "Hi! I used to run the petcarehairbrushandpenisvaccuum.com website. We have switched domains. You have us listed under the old domain, if you could do us a huge favor and replace it with our new domain I would appreciate it. Here is my new domain information {insert your domain and description}. Thanks a ton and I still love your site! You rock! Signed, SkullGuy www.petbrusnewdomain.corn."

    6) Repeat these steps and keep track of what you are doing in a spreadsheet or some kind of document so that you don't duplicate effort or go back to the resources/link site and try the same gag again and get busted.

    Some additional tips might be that if the dead domains you are finding are truly 404, they might be available to buy. I have picked up a couple of great domains like this in my niche and can use any juice they may have left to either 301 to my site or build a blog or another site.

    Doing link building this way yields better results than just asking cold for a link. Out of the 30 or 40 times I have done this, I have gotten 8 or 9 links I think or thereabouts, possibly more. It's not that hard either if you stay organized. Hell, I'm not even that organized and it's easy for me. It sure beats just asking someone for a link which I have found does not work all that well compared to this percentage wise. Also, these are real legitimate links that google can't get pissed about unless you go to spammy sources to begin with. So despite a little white lie that actually helps the webmaster take care of dead links on his site, you are getting great white hat links.

    EDIT: Ok, I wanted to clarify in case people were thinking you contact webmasters of dead sites which does not make much sense. You contact the webmaster of the site where the dead link resides. For instance, joe's dog whistle site has a links and resources page, a directory or list if you will of other pet related sites. You are determining what dead links are on Joe's dog whistle links page. You then contact Joe as the owner of one of those dead links that he has on his link page and tell him that you now have a new domain and if he could please replace your old dead domain link with the new domain, which in reality is your domain. So you are not contacting the owner of a dead site. You are contacting the owner of an authority site that has a link page related to your niche.

    I am sort of re-learning SEO and IM after being out of the game for a long time so If I posted anything blatantly wrong here I hope someone will point me and others in the right direction or at least say that this is bullshit or something. I hope it helps someone make a ton of money or even a little bit of money. Good luck in your endeavors!

    Maybe I miswrote something or you misunderstood. You contact the webmaster of the site where the dead link resides.
