- Grow Your Links Like A-Listers Do
- Site synergy:
One way to grow your links like an A-Lister is to use your natural site synergy and refine your link quality so that the best links ‘rise to the top’. What do I mean by that? I mean that we ought to deliberately seek out and propagate links with sites that are keyword related to our own. We are more likely to get a good back-link when we post on a ‘related’ site than when we comment on totally unrelated blogs. The ‘strength’ such a link offers is well worth the effort of getting it.
- Combine With Other Sites:
Justin Briggs has written this article recommending that you Gang Bang your Competition into Submission, making the point that in unity lies strength; that we can combine with other sites related to ours, and the resulting strength is greater than the input of the individual parts. Ask yourself this; if A-Listers do it; then shouldn’t you fall in line too and then expect similiar benefits?
- Get ‘Hot’ Leads:
It seems to me that by seeking out and comment linking on related sites we are also doing just what Justin suggests. I’m happy when I get traffic from such sites because that traffic is pre-disposed to agree with my site’s message – these surfers are already interested in my general theme when they arrive, so they are more likely to become a contributory part of the site than to just click away and disappear.
- Plant Wisely:
To complete the analogy, we grow our links, not by sprinkling comments everywhere, but by planting them in fertile ground. I.E., ground that will produce quality backlinks. The whole point of ‘growing’ is to get back more than you planted, thus creating synergy. So bookmark authorative related sites that will add to yours and try to support them with encouraging and constructive comment; then you too will ‘grow your links like an A-Lister’ so that now you can have a top money-making blog.
