Using Back Links to get

Top Search Engine Ranking

There are no hidden secrets on how to rank high withrepparttar major search engines. All that is needed is a basic understanding of how search engines work and a bit of know how. Perhapsrepparttar 146327 biggest contributing factor to a successful web site is incoming links or Back Links. Without links, your website will more than likely go unnoticed. So how should you accumulate these links? Below are a few basic methods to accumulate quality back links.

Before you get started

You MUST understand how search engines work. Over 90% of your business will likely come directly from search engine results. Therefore, it is absolutely essential to optimize your site for search engines. You could haverepparttar 146328 greatest deals inrepparttar 146329 entire world, but if no one knows about them then your efforts are wasted. Do a search on google for Search Engine Optimization (SEO). You will find tons of great information on how to create a website that is both user friendly and search engine friendly. There are also countless numbers of companies and freelancers out there who offer SEO services. Just be cautious of their offers and do your research first. Remember, NO ONE can guarantee top placement in major search engines, no matter what they say.

Where should back links come from?

1. Articles are a fantastic source of links and additional traffic to your site. There are countless sites online that want your articles. It’s a win win situation for everyone. When you write articles and submit them online, you are able to leave a link to your own site and sometimes even anchor text. I know what you’re saying, “I can’t write about anything.” I use to feelrepparttar 146330 same way. Butrepparttar 146331 truth ofrepparttar 146332 matter is, anyone can write. You just have to find a topic that interests you. You can write about anything from dogs, to computers, to personal training, to web hosting, heck you can even write about writing. The bottom line is, articles are a valuable source of “relevant” back links to your site.

2. Submit to directories. There are literally hundreds of “free” and “paid” directories online. With 3 hours of painless work, you can have your site submitted to hundreds of great directories. There are many quality lists of directories that are regularly updated. One of my favorites is which is always updated and maintained.

3. Develop link exchanges with relevant sites. The major search engines such as google see incoming links from relevant sites, and give them more rank compared a link from an unrelated site. For example, if you have a website about pet care products, your link strategy should target pet related sites. Again with a bit of hard work and determination, you can develop a great deal of “relevant” back links.

4. Forums are a great source for additional traffic and links. Many forums allow their users to display signatures in their posts. These signatures can consist of both text and links. When you post a new message on that forum, your websites link will be displayed for everyone to see. This not only helps build valuable back links, but will bring additional traffic to your website.

Searching, Sort of Searching and Finding.

An alternative route torepparttar SEO Holy Grail.

A Google search forrepparttar 146179 phrase “Property in Cyprus” at this time yields 2,000,000 hits. A few months ago, it was 1,600,000. Thus, we deduce (unsurprisingly) property in Cyprus is currently booming, as isrepparttar 146180 demand for property websites. As a webmaster working in Cyprus – this makes me happy.

Clients who commission websites do so in order to be found, withrepparttar 146181 increasingly elusive “No 1 on Google” as their Holy Grail. So how do we go about making them happy too?

A Little Background.

Google are responsible for about 40% of searches conducted on line and so are good to have on board with any web-based project. They offer pay per click (sponsored) results and free (organic) results. Without analyzingrepparttar 146182 way in which Google operates – as far as we can know – andrepparttar 146183 relative merits of organic verses sponsored results, suffice it for now to say that Google is highly volatile in terms of what sites rank highest in their index regardless of how much you may pay.

Some argue thatrepparttar 146184 search engine mega-giant is as reliable asrepparttar 146185 English weather and as fickle as a leaf inrepparttar 146186 wind but this is obviously anecdotal rather than evidence based.

Exaggeration aside,repparttar 146187 point at issue here is that we cannot controlrepparttar 146188 performance of Google and thus how can we risk our business by depending on it?

Available Options

So how do we get client number 200,000,001 found despiterepparttar 146189 odds?

I would argue that searches fall into three categories.

1. The “pure search” This is whenrepparttar 146190 individual searcher types keywords or phrases intorepparttar 146191 search engine of their choice or into a range of utilities that search a number of engines atrepparttar 146192 same time. This will return varying numbers of results of which research suggestsrepparttar 146193 searcher will readrepparttar 146194 first page or two.

2. The “partial search” The searcher types in something he remembers from your site or publicity material. It is not necessarily a full web address but it is something intended to stick inrepparttar 146195 memory of anyone who hears it. A memorable URL for example is a big plus here. Example – my on-line name is “Englesos”, which means “Englishman” in Greek. This makes my local clients laugh…and they remember it. A Google search for “Englesos” always returns me inrepparttar 146196 first one or two places. Obviously, this means thatrepparttar 146197 searcher has to have heard of me at least in order to perform such a search but if I back up my on-line presence with traditional advertising, this is not so hard a goal to achieve. My website is and my e-mail Someone else beat me to but rest assured I am working on it.
