Ask Your Visitors to Link to You
Make linking to you as easy as possible. Create a page on your web site that includes your banners and text link descriptions. Put a link to this page on your main page that says "Link to Us."
Provide a Valuable Service
Give your visitors a reason to link to your web site. If you provide a valuable service, you can be sure your visitors will tell their visitors, their visitors will tell their visitors and so on. Word of mouth is one of best forms of free advertising.
Give Away Free Ebooks
Everyone loves getting something of value for nothing. Create a free ebook and allow it to be freely distributed. Provide complete instructions in regard to linking to your web site, including a description of your ebook.
Write an article and allow it to be freely published. With each article you write you are entitled to include your author bylines. These bylines are nothing more than an advertisement for you, your products or services and your web site. Many web site owners will publish articles on their web site and include live links to author's web site.
About 80% of all web site traffic originates from Search Engines. It is well worth your time and effort to spend some time developing as many links to your web site as possible. Not only will these links bring you additional traffic, but you'll increase your ranking at Search Engines as well.
Web sites come and go each day on Internet. If you visit a web site and find it to be a great resource, show your support for that web site by giving them a link. In addition, tell your ezine subscribers about them. By supporting your favorite web sites, you can show your appreciation for all of hours and hours of hard work that goes into developing web site and help ensure it will be there next time you visit. Without your support, many of your favorite web sites may not be there in future.
