Is there a better way?

Yes, there are a lot of better ways. Some are f'ree and some are not. The basic idea behindrepparttar better ways is to findrepparttar 119328 people who are already linking to your competition, then encourage them to link to you.

To findrepparttar 119329 people who are linking to your competition 1) Go to and type in their URL. 2) C'lick onrepparttar 119330 link onrepparttar 119331 right hand side titled "Sites Linking In"

This will provide a list ofrepparttar 119332 sites who link to your competition. (You could also use Google - but I find they are missing a lot of links.)

Now to getrepparttar 119333 contact info for each site linking to your competition: 1) C'lickrepparttar 119334 "site info" link for each 2) Scroll down to where tells yourepparttar 119335 phone number & email address for each site

Lastly, visitrepparttar 119336 site and see whatrepparttar 119337 site is about. If you sell Gerber Daisies and they are talking about how great Gerber Daisies are - then contact them and ask for a link exchange. Since they are already linking to your competition - then they are more likely to want to link to you also.

Now I know how to findrepparttar 119338 best sites…But, how do I get them to link to me?

As I said before -repparttar 119339 first option is to just ask. I know…this is just like cold calling and every'one hates cold calling. But if you do it with email or you already know whatrepparttar 119340 site is about, then it is much easier.

One thing you can do is have a reason for calling other than asking for a link.

One ofrepparttar 119341 things that I am good at is finding problems with other websites. I don’t really do this on purpose - but as a web developer, these things just seem to jump out at me. When I am visiting a site and I find a link that does not work - I shoot a quick email off torepparttar 119342 webmaster and tell them. Normally they appreciaterepparttar 119343 fact that you are helping them - they want their site to work and are usually losing money if it does not.

Sometimes when doing this I also ask a question. For example I may ask how they did some effect on their site or what things they are doing to improve conversion. You can use this same technique to ask for a link exchange.

The point is not to complain or find a problem -repparttar 119344 point is to providerepparttar 119345 person some information that is valuable to them. For webmasters - they want their site to work. If I see something that does not work, they are usually happy to know about it. As for Gerber Daisy fanatics, they may be interested in some other good sites - or some nice pictures or some interesting information that you know about Gerber Daisies.

You will know a lot of good information about your product, so I am sure you can find something to start a conversation - even if it is nothing more than how much you like their site.

What else can I do to get people to link to me?

Well, there is a whole list of techniques - but they all are based onrepparttar 119346 same thing. Providingrepparttar 119347 other person a benefit for linking.

For example: • You could set up an affiliate program and give them a commission on every sale they referred to you. • You can share with them what you learned in Trafficology and help them get more visitors. • You can write an article onrepparttar 119348 topic ofrepparttar 119349 site and give it to them in exchange for a link. • You can create an eBook or something else that they can give away to their visitors • You can of'fer them a special discount on all purchases • You can send them some samples of your product to try for themselves

This is only limited by your-own imagination. Thats It For Now, inrepparttar 119350 next issue we will look at adcopy/sales copy so keep a close eye on your mailbox!

Remember you can get all this information plus thousands of dollars worth of resources and products you can sell online and keep every penny ofrepparttar 119351 profit from

By equal value it should be kept in mind your site with a google PR of 1 might be turned down by another site when you are asking for a link on a PR 5 page. Most webmasters I have contacted want relevant link exchange of similar value and many want non-competing links as well.

Some sites owners will consider creative partnerships. From my site (link near top of this article) if you browse to forums then notice atrepparttar bottom of forums listing a section called “Hosted Partners Forums” with a “Go Get Links – Support” forum? This is a creative partnership between of my own sites. Many webmasters would find great value in trading traffic and links with partnerships like this.

This type of partnership allows you to have a place to promote yourself from a different domain and update information about your site. Every time you post in “your forum” you would also be increasingrepparttar 119327 links back to your site. This kind of partnership givesrepparttar 119328 host of your forum content sorepparttar 119329 site remains active andrepparttar 119330 search engine spiders stay interested.

There are many ways to develop linking strategies from one site to anotherrepparttar 119331 reason why you should take advantage of them is obvious when you search google for information. Most searches turn up a few forum post and articles onrepparttar 119332 first page of results. I know I often find relevant information when I follow a link to a forum post and then to another website.

Keep in mind that allrepparttar 119333 ideas suggested here are in no way intended to be high maintenance projects. These are just things you can take a day to do at a few sites and then revisitrepparttar 119334 more productive sites and add more as you see fit.
