Grow Your Links Like an A-Lister

  • Grow Your Links Like A-Listers Do

Grow Your Links

  • 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.

    I guess I’m new to your site, Rhys. I happened to stumble upon it once before and now I’m back to find you have developed your site and make it an interesting and well-organized blog. Read some of your articles here and I guess you have come a long way in a short time blogging. Pardon me, if I’m wrong.

    I can see you have met up with the “Three Musketeers” – Court, Franqui and Grizz – and a few other well-informed bloggers. They are good people to follow. Although I have been a regular visitor to most of them, I have slacken a bit in my blogging lately. If I find a blog that provides good reading, I’ll be inclined to visit again. Used to be very active in the MyBlogLog community.

    Keep up the good work here and wish you get a nice PR soon.

    Hi Markk!

    Nice to have you visiting again. I Agree. It is too easy to ‘slacken’ as you put it, and we can lose a bit of our impetus too easily if we don’t keep up with what is current.

  11. I think this depends totally on what you want to grow. In case you have a few niche sites or places you want google to know it’s probably pretty useful to plant a lot of seeds in furtile ground. In case you want to attract reoccuring readers or friends to help your ventures it’s probably better to pick one thing and stick to it.

    @Last minute Shopper
    Totally agree – that is a sure fire recipe for success to; “pick one thing and stick to it”.

    the concept of “site synergy” is a good one… sometimes it’s difficult when you are working on sites with very specific niches to find related sites to “work” with.

  21. Getting links from sites related to your site is one of the better ways. You can also make another site that is realted to your site and link back to it. People have a website and then blog that are seperate but same topic and link and it helps.

  22. You make a good point about comment on sites with similar topic. Not only do you get a link but anyone who follows the link is looking for the same things you have on your site.

    Could anyone explain us about the nofollw and dofollow instruction? How can we realize if a mutual link really takes effect to improve our Pagerank?

  24. Your article very informative. Thanks.

    Hi Jose, I am not the owner of this blog but here is the explanation. Nofollow link is link that a webmaster do not what search engine to follow. So, in another word the link will not be count for pagerank. But there is few people suggested that it is also important to have nofollow links when building backlinks.

    I thought that a link was a link. It could not hurt for me to try this. I am not doing very well so far. Thanks for the tip.

  33. Barry Scott says:

    I understand the strategy but being that links are highly commoditized, the question is always why would an A List site want to link to me? I can link your site from mine all day long, great for you, you got a link. The question is will you link back to me? Sure, so called A List sites will link with each other. Question is how often do A listers link to D listers? After all, everybody is trying to get to the top but there is only so much room up there..
