Written by Leah J Bradshaw

It's no secret-link exchanges are dying a painful death. And why you ask? Since March 2005repparttar new Google algorythm has become very very picky aboutrepparttar 144831 quality, quantity and frequency of incoming links to your website. It now considers reciprocal linking to be, in fashion terms; OUT!

So what can you do to get legitimate incoming links to your website to maintain your traffic? The new wave in link building is content exchanges. It is fairly simple, just submit your written articles to article directories and webmasters looking for content.

You've probably heard of "writing articles" for free traffic before, so why is it calledrepparttar 144832 "new wave" in free traffic? Glad you asked, let me elaborate. A couple of years ago an internet marketing Guru named Jim Edwards wrote an ebook titled "Turn Words in to Traffic". In this ebook Jim explained how to write and distribute articles asrepparttar 144833 ideal way to get free incoming links to your website.

Many big (and little) name webmasters jumped onrepparttar 144834 band wagon and started to implement Jim's techniques and seerepparttar 144835 results. But after a time, even thoughrepparttar 144836 concept and results reaminedrepparttar 144837 same, many webmasters abandoned writing and distributing articles for two reasons.

First, some people just can't or hate to write. And second, it is very tedious and time consuming to go around torepparttar 144838 40+ article and ezine content banks and manually submit your articles to each site each time you write an article.

So whyrepparttar 144839 comeback? Many webmasters who previously didn't want to write articles have discovered either HOW to write articles, or they've hired out their article writing at about $10.00 per article to ghost writers at sites like elance.com. They recognizedrepparttar 144840 power of distributing articles and simply out sourced it.

Basically, it’s a clever little programme which you can set up in advance to place a last minute auction bid on your behalf. Some sniping programs can be downloaded.
