5. Join a link co-op. Co-ops such asrepparttar one found at are an amazing source of valuable back links and free advertisement. What is a co op network? A Co op network is a network of site owners/webmasters that offer ad space torepparttar 146327 network. In return,repparttar 146328 ads they define are displayed acrossrepparttar 146329 entire network. The best part of ad networks such asrepparttar 146330 one found at digital point, is, they are free. Having your site in a co-op can literally mean thousands of back links for your site.

6. Buying ezine ads is a paid method of advertising, but it works, because it isrepparttar 146331 most targeted of these approaches. Write a concise ad for your business, and link to either a lead-capture page or directly to your autoresponder. Then, begin contacting ezines to place your ad. (Do a search for “ezine directories,” and you will find enough lists to keep you busy.) When you contact an ezine, look for rates for both classified ads and solo ads. The advantage to a solo ad is that your ad goes out by itself in a separate email, but they can be more expensive. Because these ads are targeted (you should NOT advertise in an unrelated ezine), you will definitely see traffic, but you will need to track your results to see which ezines bring yourepparttar 146332 most and best traffic.

7. Ad Swaps can be an exellent source of advertising. Start by writing some killer copy (to coin a phrase...there are many free articles and ebooks writen onrepparttar 146333 subject). Simply use your favorite search engine and type to write ad copy. I googled this as I am wriying this and it showed 12,400,000 results. WOW! Once you have your ad written, search out Ezines that are inrepparttar 146334 same catagory as your business or service. Again use your favorite web search. Build yourself a list of ezines and then email them asking if they except ad swaps. Include your ad in your corrospondance withrepparttar 146335 ezines so they can see what you are offering. Another place to check for ezines is to type in Ezine directories in your seach engine. Look up ezines in your catagory of business or service. Most listings will tell you if they except ad swaps andrepparttar 146336 peramiters ofrepparttar 146337 ad such as how many lines and how many characters per line. Don't forget to ad your website url in your ad.

If you want to have a successful site, whether-it-be a hobby or for business, you have to understand how search engines work. Part of that understanding, is knowing about link development. Maybe inrepparttar 146338 early 90’srepparttar 146339 idea of “if you build it they will come” might have been true. But inrepparttar 146340 year 2005repparttar 146341 internet is a far more competitive and complex place. To be successful today, you have to work at it. Without a quality source of back linksrepparttar 146342 search engines will all but ignore your site.

The Final Word.

You can throw as much money at this issue as you wish – it will make no significant difference. Inrepparttar 146196 hands of a poor-quality or unscrupulous webmaster it may even do harm.
