    Link Building can definitely be an extremely difficult task if you want to
    take it on based on purely human labor to go out and request for links,
    whether they are one way or reciprocal.

    Here I am trying to bring few tips and few resources of link building which
    you may find worth to have a look

    Submit to Web Directories:
    Do slow and continuous directory submissions for your site. This is an
    important long term work and solution for any site. Start doing directory
    submission from the very first day you site is up. Here are few free,
    non-reciprocal directories:

    http://www.dmoz.org 9
    http://www.lii.org/pub/htdocs/home.htm 8
    http://www.femina.com 7
    http://www.gogreece.com 7
    http://www.sacentral.sa.gov.au/site/page.cfm 7
    http://www.worldhot.com/ 7
    http://www.123india.com/ 7
    http://www.elib.org/ 7
    http://www.ezilon.com/ 6
    http://www.epooch.com/ 6
    http://www.christiansunite.com/ 6
    http://www.toronto1.biz/ 6
    http://www.canadianeh.com 6
    http://www.aardvark.co.za 6
    http://www.nzs.com/ 6
    http://www.aigam.com 6

    I have a long list of directories. See list of free, non reciprocal directories.
    (I am listing few sites here to make sure this thread does not go very lengthy)

    Reciprocal Link Building:
    Contacting webmasters of relevant sites requesting for have a link
    exchange. Write personalized emails to request for link exchange. It will
    be better if you write 2-3 good things about their site and tell them how
    link exchange will benefit both parties. Also, mentioning good qualities and
    PageRank is always good idea.

    Do not forget to ask and give (1) URL of link, (2) Title of link, and (3) Description of Link

    Now, main thing is How to find good link partner. Search google and other
    search engines for terms like: ?keyword reciprocal links?, ?keyword
    links?, ?Keyword link exchange?, ?keyword link submit?, ?Keyword link
    partner? etc.


    Article Submissions:
    Yeah, write quality articles which have some interesting and useful stuff,
    and submit them to free article directories.

    You need to put link back to your site. Let your article do double duty- (1)
    bring traffic and (2) link building. You need to make your keywords
    anchor of link to your site.

    To be very frank, I see quick results when I succeed to place my 2-3
    articles on high PageRank and high traffic sites. Some times we need to
    submit article like submission to directories and sometimes we need to
    request webmaster via e-mail. You need to tell them why they should put
    your article on their site.

    Here?s the list of top article sites you should submit your articles:
    1. http://www.ezinearticles.com
    2. http://www.goarticles.com
    3. http://www.articlecity.com
    4. http://www.a1articles.com

    Submit Press Releases:
    Write press releases about your site or a section of your site and submit
    them to press release distribution services.

    Here are few sites which you may find good enough

    http://www.webwire.com/

    Social Networking / Social Group Sites:
    Social networking sites like www.myspace.com are very useful these days
    to not only get links but also huge traffic. One more benefit of being
    active is you get thousands of friends to make and then convert them into
    your customers.

    Participating in social group / networking sites are proving boon now a
    days. There are scores of such sites available these days. People are
    making money by selling the list if their friends at those site. This is a
    great way to have links and traffic.

    Participation in Link Programs:
    There are some good link programs in which you help others to get them
    link and other help you. Following are few good ones to join.

    http://www.linkmarket.net/
    http://www.linkleads.com/
    http://www.infowizards.com/
    http://www.linktraders.org/
    http://www.linkexchanged.com/
    http://www.linkexchangeit.com/
    http://www.linkpartners.com/
    http://www.123exchangelinks.com/
    http://www.links-pal.com/
    http://www.ads4links.com/
    http://www.spocka.com/
    http://links-for-you.com/
    http://www.webmaster-link-exchange.com/

    I also recommend Co-op Advertising Network of DigitalPoint
    All are free, enjoy using them.

    Link from .org and .edu sites:
    The education and organization sites are considered more valued sites and
    links coming from those sites are valuable link. You need to search those
    sites.

    Just find out some forums and blogs of the organizations and education
    body which have content relevant to your site. Make blog comments and
    put links in them, make sure your comment is genuine and not spam.
    Read the whole topic and find something to comment on the topic? job is
    done.

    Same way leave your links in forums signature. There is few hot topics on
    forum signature telling importance at seo point of view and traffic point of
    view. Go ahead and do it, you?ll make valuable links.

    You can do the blog comment and forum sign at non .org and no .edu sites.

    Social Book marking Site Submission:
    Now a day?s people are taking interest in social bookmarking. So, I
    thought I should start the service of social bookmarking. Yeah, it is worthy
    enough to pay someone to do social bookmarking.

    For those who are new to it, in social bookmarking system, users store
    lists of Internet resources, which they find useful. These lists are
    accessible to the public for their views and comments. This became a
    great seo technique now.

    Here are few good social bookmarking sites:

    http://del.icio.us/ 8
    http://www.digg.com/ 8
    http://www.blinklist.com/ 6
    http://ma.gnolia.com/ 7

    I like to build one-way links as much as possible and have done well using link bid directories.

    You can get links for as little as $1 lifetime and have the option to bid more to be on the index page.

    I'm not quite ready to share my list I've built but will give you some tips to get you started.

    Here's how to find these directories..

    Go to Yahoo and use the following queries:

    powered by phplinkbid inurl:buy (That should be good for 200+ links)

    submit a link php link directory (sift through the results and there are lots)

    Another good method is to do a backlinks search on web sites that appear on the directories a lot. If you find the right site, it can literally give you hundreds more directories.

    Be creative with your search skills and you can uncover 1000+ directories.

    This strategy has worked really well for me to achieve first page on major se's for very competitive terms so even if you spend $500 or more dollars over a few months the results will be worth it.

    my advice is - build your own blogfarm and link from there (remember: never close the circle)

    or use Xrumer :)

    No, I don't do it manually.

    But, most people will need to do it manually unless they build a script to automate the process.

    I considered outsourcing the process to cheap offshore labour but the biggest problem is link bid directories typically only accept paypal. So, you need to be able to entrust your paypal account to whomever is doing the work for you, and I won't do that.

    There is some benefit to doing it manually as well. If you have numerous sites and want to spend 15 min per day each site link building it adds up pretty fast and and you wont trip and potential google filters for building links too fast.

    It takes time and effort but it is worth it. To give you an example of results I've gotten recently: First Page msn for slots, first page on google for football picks, second page for nfl betting (hoping for 1st page prior to the SuperBowl which could be an easy $5000 day if it happens) and a whole lot more competitive terms ranking well.

    I'm not saying I got these results overnight, but the sites were not ranking nearly as well until I implemented this strategy and once I did they climbed very fast.

    Hope that helps.
