Increase Web Site Traffic with Link Popularity

Written by Jason Bruce

Many ofrepparttar major search engines now factor link popularity into their rankings so it is important to get as many quality Web sites linking to your site as possible.

What is Link Popularity? Link popularity isrepparttar 128136 total number of Web sites that link to your site. As a result, increasingrepparttar 128137 number of relevant Web sites which link to your site can improve your search engine rankings and generate more traffic to your site.

Relevant Links The type of Web site linking to yours is very important. Exchange links with Web sites that have a similar theme or content as yours. A link from a similar Web site will count more towards your link popularity then a link from a Web site with content which is not relevant to yours. For example, if you have a real estate Web site, you should request link exchanges from other sites that have content pertaining to repparttar 128138 real estate industry.

Avoid being Banned from Search Engines Do not participate in link exchange programs or link farms. Although this seems like an easy way to exchange links with other Web sites, Google and many other search engines may ban sites that participate in link exchange programs.

Create a Links Page Before you request reciprocal linking with other Web sites, you should set up a ‘Links’ page on your site. You can also add your contact information so other Webmasters can request link exchanges with you.
