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 148398 network. In return,repparttar 148399 ads they define are displayed acrossrepparttar 148400 entire network. The best part of ad networks such asrepparttar 148401 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 148402 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 148403 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 148404 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 148405 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 148406 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 148407 peramiters ofrepparttar 148408 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 148409 early 90’srepparttar 148410 idea of “if you build it they will come” might have been true. But inrepparttar 148411 year 2005repparttar 148412 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 148413 search engines will all but ignore your site.
