Do you want to find high PR links where you can place your links? Read on because I'm going to share with you how you too can find such links and forget shitty blog commenting and forum profiles forever. Step 1 - Download the Market Samurai trial. It's the best piece of software bar none. Forget chasing the download link that will inevitably disappear within days in the download section. The Noble Samurai guys will give you a free trial to fully test out their software which provides you with zero hassles and no fucking around trying to crack the damn thing. Optional - After your trial, purchase the software. The guys deserve your support so they can continue to update and develop new products for us to use. Code: http://www.marketsamurai.com/ Step 2A - I call this step "reverse niche research" because we don't want to drill down, we want get a little broad minded with the niche you're marketing in. Let's say for example, your website is about "3D LED Televisions". This could belong in a few different categories such as Home, Entertainment, TV and so forth. Step 2B - Think about some of the most competitive niche markets that are out there. For example; sex, poker, pornography and so forth. While these links might be unrelated, you can find some high PR sites that will be happy to take your links or where you can submit partner or supporter links which don't cost anything but are merely asking for moral support (whether you do or don't does not matter for me personally). Step 3 - Open Market Samurai and open these words as new keywords. Skip the keyword research module and jump straight into the SEO Competition Module. Bring up the top 10 listings for each keyword and then using the PR analysis tool, find out where their strongest links are coming from. Step 4 - Now visit all these sites and make sure you have "Show NoFollow" ticked in your Search Status addon. You're looking for sites that appear to be run by small teams or one person and don't use rel=nofollow on their outgoing links. Forget the biggest sites here, they'll want to charge you out the ass for links or not even respond to your request. Step 5A - Find out the contact information and write up an email template to send to them. Do not email them and just ask for a link. Refer to this article on SEOMOZ for a good email strategy. You want to strike up a conversation at first and request the link in the second or third email.

Fill out the template and submit your information. I have some powerful links that are listed right next to some huge industry players such as Intel. While these types of links are few, they're high PR and hold huge value. I'm talking PR6+ Some of the time, they won't fall for this but it works often enough to warrant time you will invest. Step 6 - Looking at your niche competitors at the drilled down level, check out all the backlinks that your competitors have and duplicate all of them.
