I have noticed that my authority site has been garnering good amount of natural links over time. I attribute it fully to a wide range of topics discussed in the site [ all topics are related to just one niche ]. And when that happens, you certainly increase the potential to garner more natural links. These links are not thousands in number. But i know for a fact that i have got at least about 100 links naturally. Some are from PR 6, PR5 sites. The beauty of these links is that it has fantastic co-citation. Please look up-co-citation. Some of the links are to deep pages and some are to home page. What you should take away from this post is that the more focus you put on developing original and unique content, the more probability you generate to get a high quality link. So, focus more on your content. See to it that your sites are not just MFA. MFA sites still work. But in the long term, they will DEFINITELY not work. Having 100 sites slapped with adsense will make you money. No doubt. But one day, they are all going to be deindexed. Trust me. THEY WILL! On the other hand, if you invest some of that money you made using MFA into developing one authority site and go more whitehat, you are strengthening the foundation for your online career. And it will only get stronger. Investing wisely is very important. All newbies, take note of that. I am not saying MFA should be dropped. newbies are better off starting out with MFA [ if a google guy reads this, he is going to be pissed off. I know. But this is the truth, G guy]. Because it is one of the easiest ways to make money when you are starting. But just do not depend totally on MFA. Move onto something stable. Or if you do not mind building 100 sites, making money, seeing them deindexed, building another sites network again, making money, blah blah, you can choose the MFA route for good. A primer on getting natural links: 1. Having a non-MFA design certainly helps, 2. Having a domain name that does not read " buycheapestlatopsforchristmasonline.com" helps, 3. Making the site look like it is a brand helps [ try having a tagline along with the logo ]. Even better to have a real brand, 4. Having a decent logo helps, 5. Having plenty of related content is good, 6. Show off your best content prominently in the site, 7. Focusing on just ONE NICHE [ you are better off with a niche rather than a micro niche ] helps a LOT! I mean, that is what is all about being an authority, right? [ I will add more if you are interested and if more things come to my mind ] Now i want to ask you. 1. What has worked for you in getting natural links? 2. How many natural links have you obtained to your flagship sites? 3. Are you even concerned about getting such links? Fire away your answers.
