Cult of Linking Exorcist Casts Out Linking Demons!

Written by Mike Banks Valentine

Have you ever known someone who has blind faith to a religous sect or self-improvement group and has been taken in by a charismatic leader? The devotion torepparttar cause is seemingly blind and support in donated time or financial contribution exceeds all reason? That is where we are with repparttar 119343 cult of linking. You stand by marveling at how an intelligent person could be so entirely absorbed in their linking fanaticism that they lose sight of reality? I ran an article in my blog a couple of days ago called ďLink Swapping Killing Web SitesĒ and commented that I was glad to see some sanity returning to webmasters as a preface and introduction torepparttar 119344 Michael Cheney piece. Today I've been shown a bit more lunacy from three different angles. First, I have a client seeking quality links. He has hundreds of outbound links from his network of sites and uses his own linking script with an admin control panel where he approves or deletes links submitted.

I talked him into scrapping that and took down links torepparttar 119345 "swap" page from major pages of his sites. To replace those "Swap" links, I proposed that we use one ofrepparttar 119346 many "text link brokers" popping up acrossrepparttar 119347 web. We can simply buyrepparttar 119348 links from relevant sources from reputable brokers - or so I thought. I contacted two of those brokers asking for some type of substantiation for repparttar 119349 value ofrepparttar 119350 links they were selling. I simply asked them if they had any case studies showing search engine rank increases attributable to major text link purchases. I'm still reeling from one response. He said, "We don't keep track of that sort of thing. Most people have been happy with our partners links." I had to pick my jaw up fromrepparttar 119351 floor! He is askingrepparttar 119352 better part of $1000 for "run of site" links from a questionable "network" of sites that, although on topic, were not a good fit for my clients links. When I pointed out to him that they were all on very close IP addresses and clearly resided onrepparttar 119353 same virtual server, he seemed not to understand what I was talking about when I asked if they couldn't offer more variation in IP address range to avoid a link farm penalty fromrepparttar 119354 search engines. I shook my head in astonishment and moved on with my day and then I got a note from a colleague who asked me if I

Writing Articles to Gain Link Popularity and Increase Trust and Credibility Ė The Secret Most Overlook and do it Wrong.

Written by James R. Sanders

As I look through my various forum links and review some of my company email, I keep coming across questions relating to generating inbound links to increase web site ranking. No matter who you are, if you have a web site online you are always looking for ways to improve your link popularity. While most SEO practitioners will tell you that getting other related, non-competing, websites to link to you should be high on your priority list if you want better PR from Google or better rankings, most web site designers missrepparttar most obvious way to get these valuable one way inbound links. There is a way to do that plus generate additional content for your web site atrepparttar 119342 same time. You can get those quality inbound links while expanding your content which will bringrepparttar 119343 search engine spiders to your web site more often. By following my suggestions, you will be able to kill two birds with one stone, and make your visitors happy while increasing your rankings and makingrepparttar 119344 spiders happy all at once.

Everyone is an expert at something.

Itís true, everyone has many years of experience at something. Maybe you have been in a job forrepparttar 119345 past 20 years and know just about every aspect of it, or maybe youíve been making paper airplanes as a hobby for just as much time. Either way, you have 20 years of knowledge about something that others could be looking for information to read on those topics. Maybe you have already built a web site taking advantage of that knowledge and are looking to use it as a means to make a living, or maybe itís about a hobby and you want to make a living with that. Either way, each of us has valuable knowledge that other people might want. Why not take some time, sit down and think about your business experience or hobby, and then write some ďHow ToĒ articles about it? If you have a web site that already uses that hobby, or work experience, then it is a good way to add content to your web site, and itís also a good way to help you get those inbound links you need to increase your rankings.

Usingrepparttar 119346 Knowledge to Gain Link Popularity through Article Writing.

Letís say you have 20 years of experience with a company whererepparttar 119347 only thing you did was to conduct interviews to hire new employees. Letís further say you were so good at this that it wasrepparttar 119348 only thing your company wanted you to do. Because your results were so good, itísrepparttar 119349 only thing you did do. Maybe your prospects always worked out and were some ofrepparttar 119350 hardest and most competent workers your company ever hired. You could write some articles on how to interview job candidates to getrepparttar 119351 best employees, or maybe write articles telling job seekers what companies are looking for in their potential employees. If you have a web site for job seekers, or a web site for learning how to interview employees, you could then userepparttar 119352 articles for additional web site content. Itís already a known and proven fact thatrepparttar 119353 search engine spiders can be conditioned to visit your site more often through your patterns of adding content. The more often a site updates,repparttar 119354 more oftenrepparttar 119355 spiders come to visit. The more often they visit,repparttar 119356 better chances that your web site will begin to jump in rankings because it is viewed as a fresh content site that updates frequently and would be more valuable to visitors.

Some might think there are just some topics so vague or uninteresting that it wouldnít be worth writing anything in that topic area, butrepparttar 119357 professionals know there are readers for almost any topic area, and no one topic is to be avoided because of poor readership. It all comes down to your writing style, ease of reading, and your credibility. If you can write gripping content that pulls your readers in and informs them, then it doesnít matter what you write about. Inrepparttar 119358 end,repparttar 119359 reader will be looking for you and not your article. This is not something that happens over night. It takes a lot of writing and a lot of time to hone your skills to that point. It takes writing daily and forcing oneself to try different topics. Itís good to start out with what you like, but to become a professional and have flexibility, you have to write about other things too. Not only will this experience help you become a more professional writer, it will also help to develop your communication skills inrepparttar 119360 written format. As you continue to use better forms of writing and grammar, you will begin to write content pages for your site that rank better with repparttar 119361 search engines. Itís a win-win situation allrepparttar 119362 way around.

Articles to Increase One-way Inbound Links and Web Site Ranking.

Speaking of those rankings, that reminds me of those one-way links I spoke about earlier. After you write your article, you can submit it to other places online which will post it to their web site, offer it to other web sites as free content, or both. Most of these places will allow you to submit your own information for an ďAuthorís BoxĒ or ďAuthorís BioĒ area which they publish atrepparttar 119363 bottom of each article. These are things like information about you, your web site, and LINKS you can add back to your site. There you go, instant high quality in-bound links withoutrepparttar 119364 need to addrepparttar 119365 other web siteís link to yours, no begging, no paying extortion amounts of fees for an ad, just good old fashioned content to promote your own abilities and web site. Itísrepparttar 119366 easiest way to get a one-way in-bound link to your site IF you can develop your writing skills and your content viewed as valuable to another web site. If you write garbage, your information isnít credible and is full of factual holes, or your writing puts people to sleep, then chances are that your articles arenít going to do anything more than waste your time. Thatís why itís critically important to get intorepparttar 119367 habit of writing often and learningrepparttar 119368 flow of your chosen language.

You see,repparttar 119369 more you write,repparttar 119370 more you train your ear to listen torepparttar 119371 written words, andrepparttar 119372 more you learn what ďsoundsĒ right and what doesnít quite seem to make sense. As I write an article, I am talking within my mind while I write. Yes, maybe I am a bit strange, but it works for me. I add my intonations and elevate my voice for emphasis, and I try to find ways to convey that in my writing. Iím no ďexpertĒ, but this is what works for me, and I have a decent amount of articles published, which means I must be doing something right. WebProWorld and WebProNews seem to like me, or at least my writing style orrepparttar 119373 topics I cover. Maybe itís just my sincerity LOL. Hey, I do my best. I try to offerrepparttar 119374 facts and ensure that I do my research before I write any article outside my field of knowledge. Character helps to build a writer, and a healthy dose of commitment to repparttar 119375 reader doesnít hurt either, but you have to find ways to build credibility and trust. Without those two things, nobody is going to read what you write, and if they do, they arenít going to be likely to click on links back to your site. You have to get their attention and compel them to want more of your writing. Thatís what will make your one-way inbound links even more valuable.
