How to Optimize your Website - Part 4

Linking Strategies.

Once you have your pages optimized as you want them to be, you will need to get some other sites to link to your site. There are several important points to bear in mind when you contact sites in order to get them to link to you.

Google will only "credit" your site with a link from a site that it knows of, this means that you should aim for links from sites that have a Google PR score. To find out what the PR score of a site is, visit my site Search Engine Optimization and use the PR tool on the home page.

This also makes certain that you do not get links from banned or dubious sites that will in fact harm your ranking rather than improve it.

You ideally want to get a link from a page that has a related subject as this will make the link more valuable. This can be difficult as many sites will not want to advertise the competition on their sites, however there are solutions to this, as getting links from a page on a site that includes your keywords will do the trick. In many cases a site will have a directory of links or resources which will be divided into sections that may be named with something related to your site keywords.

If you want to get a head start on your link building then submit your url here and you will start to generate one way links to your site. One way links are the best kind of link to get as the GYM SE's favour them over reciprocal links.
