You tell me your secrets, I’ll tell you mine. It’s true, we are all weak at heart to “want to get in on a good secret”. As you’re aware, it’s not very often in the world of Link Building that professionals share their secrets, but in the one off special occasion of being a guest here on the wonderful blog of the beautiful, most professional – Kristi Hines, I’m in a “terrific” mood and am going to share a few of my personal secrets – the ones that have gotten me to where I am today. Before I jump into the realm, let’s first take a good little look at what our Link Building amigo, Eric Ward has to say about Link Building secrets:
“Link building secrets? ThatÂ searchÂ on Google comes up with over 20 million matches. How secret is anything out there with so much discussion about it? And which of those 20 million shiny nuggets are real secrets rather than foolâ€™s gold?” -Eric Ward
WHO SAID SECRETS ARE MEANT TO BE KEPT
The truth of the matter is that link building of any sort – whetherÂ it be secretive or a wide spread strategy – the reality is that one strategy might possibly be a golden egg for one site, while being nothing more than useless for another. No matter how much I write on the topic or someone else, you aren’t going to build links manually until you’re good and ready to do so. Would you rather spend the rest of your life begging another webmaster to put your link on her/his site, or would you rather have the most powerful links on the web come to you free, without much work?
The process of link building can be so overwhelming, confusing, tedious and dreaded to some, that they completely ignore link building as a whole. In other cases, business owners and webmasters alike are taking the easier route and buying links or just simply using link building software and the biggest portion of these type of businessmen are now sitting tightly in Google’s sand box through their lesson learned by Penguins and Pandas. Learning to create backlinks on your own can be a huge advantage and learning these link building secrets can prove to be beneficial.
Let’s Get Started Shall We?
A couple of my link building secrets will be easy managed, while others will prove just a bit more difficult. Pay attention to the methods mentioned as some are industry specific. There’s no reason to get your panties in a wad over it though, and there’s not a bit of sense in grabbing your ink pens and paper, I advise you to simply bookmark this page and refer back to it as yours to keep. Also note that you don’t need to implement every strategy mentioned here – simply take a few and run with them.
