My friend David Newton at has found this an invaluable way to gain in excess of 1,000 inbound links for his site. Simplified it should go like this:

a.Find a relevant site as a potential link partner. Tip – Try entering this into google “your keyword or phrase” + “add url”. This will then listrepparttar 105621 most popular sites that will allow you to link back to them.

b.Firstly create a link to their website

c.Contact them directly showing them your link to them with url of their site and something you liked about their site, something unique. Compliments can only help here.

d.Schedule to follow them up in one months time and try again if necessary. Best to keep a spreadsheet

Of course not all will link to you and it’s a bit of a numbers game but you can get results. Its better to personalize your contact than mass e-mailing a general group of websites.

Don’t forget to always be polite and keep up a schedule where you will aim to get say ten or twenty links out there per week. You will then have quite a collection after a few months and traffic should start flowing to your site.
