7. Provide an easy way forrepparttar webmaster to copy/pasterepparttar 125062 code along with a sample of whatrepparttar 125063 link will look like on their page.

8. In each text link, make sure your major keyword is inrepparttar 125064 click-able part ofrepparttar 125065 link text. Many search engines userepparttar 125066 click-able part ofrepparttar 125067 link text for links on other sites to determinerepparttar 125068 appropriate keywords for your site.

9. Forrepparttar 125069 banner links, make surerepparttar 125070 "Alt" tag contains your keyword. This is what will be displayed for surfers who are surfing without graphics capability (or who have turned off their graphics capability). It is also whatrepparttar 125071 visually impaired will hear when they "read"repparttar 125072 page with their equipment. It is also what some search engines will use to determinerepparttar 125073 topic of your site.

10. Also include a text link below each banner with your major keyword. Many webmasters will delete this part, but some will keep it. Text links receive a much higher click-thru rate than banners. You want to give every opportunity forrepparttar 125074 webmaster to give you a text link... without forcingrepparttar 125075 issue. You don't want to give up a banner link if that's allrepparttar 125076 webmaster is willing to offer.

11. Have a simple form to request a link on your site. Askrepparttar 125077 minimum amount of information you need to provide a link. The example asks for URL, Title, Description, and Category. If you don't need any other information, don't ask for it. Some webmasters will turn away if they are faced with a daunting form asking for a bunch of nonsense information.

12. EXCEPT: Ask for their email address. This is important. You wantrepparttar 125078 ability to contact them if your link disappears from their site. You also wantrepparttar 125079 ability to send them a reminder to link back to you if they haven't already.

13. Addrepparttar 125080 link right away when you receive a link request from your form. Send a confirmation email letting them know that you added their link and where they can find it on your links pages. Some webmasters have dozens of sites. They will submit your form for just one site. When they see how fast you add their link, they will be back to exchange links with perhaps dozens of other sites.

14. Checkrepparttar 125081 links you receive in this way periodically to ensure that they are still linking back to you. If not, send them a friendly reminder. Often dropping your link will be a simple oversight during a site redesign. Don't assume otherwise.

15. Never use their email address for anything else. Trying to sell your product to your link partners is NOT very effective and will likely annoy them. You may lose your link on their site or worse. Be responsible with their email address and only use it to communicate about your link exchange.

That's it. If you follow all of these steps, you can start receiving inbound links without doing any ofrepparttar 125082 work to go find sites to exchange links. Of course, you will have to do that work inrepparttar 125083 beginning to get enough traffic to your "Add URL" form, but then you can rest a little and reaprepparttar 125084 rewards of your hard work.
