So you have created your first post on your brand new spanking website, and after a month Google is not showing you any love?
You keep pushing out awesome content, because you’re awesome, but still no love from Google – what’s up with that?
So, frustration sets in, and you decide to reach for your favorite yellow and black nunchaku’s and Bruce Lee that sucker – wasssssssa.
Hahaha, I know it can be frustrating when you’re starting out, believe me I have been there before – many times in fact, but there is a simple answer …
Every SEO guy will tell you this, but it is easier said than done.
Creating back-links for my blog has always been a chore, however, it is just one of those things that is part of getting your website seen by Google.
Wish I didn’t have to create them, but alas I do, and so do you, if you want to get your webpages ranked in Google.
In order for you to reach the masses you have to start spreading the news, so to speak.
So a little social bookmarking here and creating some Web 2.0 articles there and slowly, but surely Google is gonna see you.
So here’s a way that will get your blog noticed without creating too much work for yourself, because you really only want to be focusing on creating cntent for your blog as opposed to creating backlinks – right?
So let’s get smart about it. Just do what I do.
Step 1) Back-linking Manually
Once you have finished a post then spend a little time rewriting it while the information is still fresh in your mind, the idea being you can re-purpose the new article on a Web 2.0 website linking back to your blog post.
How do you know what Web 2.0 website to use?
Well, it depends on what is the most popular Web 2.0 website in the eyes of Google at the moment.
So, do this.
Type in the product name for a well known and heavily marketed affiliate product as I have done so in the picture below.
Take note of Web 2.0 websites that you are able to create content on.
So in the results that I got back, the highest ranked websites that we can put our content on are Youtube, Slideshare, Prweb and Nbadraft.net.
So I would drop my rewrittern content into these websites.
So i would create a quick video using the rewritten article, I would also create a Slideshare document with the content, and maybe rewrite it again for the Prweb press release site.
There might be a cost associated with Prweb so I in this case I might not use them.
If you can get on Nbadraft.net, then this might also be a good backlink to get.
NB: I am only using these websites because Google is ranking them, which means that Google thinks highly enough of them.
So effectively we are leveraging their authority to create powerful backlinks for our content.
Step 2) Back-linking software
There are so many automated software tools available now that it can be difficult to know what one is the most effective and most cost effective to use.
With the recent updates Google is looking for high quality back-links from credible sources. They are also paying close attention to the anchor text as well.
In the old days, if you wanted to rank for the term ‘blue widgets’, then every link you built would have the term ‘blue widget’ in it.
However, Google is now hitting websites with an over optimization penalty if they think the website has unnatural linking going to it.
I guess the number one thing to concentrate on here is – natural linking patterns. Meaning, what would the average person who’d share this information link out to on their page.
Then build this type of patterning in your software, for example: I would have a percentage (70 – 80%) of my links using keyword terms ‘click here’, ‘here’, ‘read more’, ‘find out more’ etc, I would evenly apportion the remaining with my domain name and the anchor text I wanted the page to rank for.
Here’s my favorite automated back-linking tool.
Step 3) Outsource back-linking
If you don’t want the hassle of creating back-links yourself or having to purchase and learn how to use software, then another good way is to outsource your backlinking to freelancers.
One of the easiest and cheapest ways is to find someone on Fiverr.com
At Fiverr.com you can pretty much get any task you want completed for $5. Tasks are usually referred to as gigs, and gigs can take anywhere between 1 hour and 7 days to complete.
Back-linking tasks will usually take several days to complete.
The type of back-linking you want is pyramid links.
Pyramid links are usually 3 – 4 tiers deep, meaning the links cascade down from the top level like a pyramid.
If you’d rather have more control over what types of links get created, how many, and when they get created then you could do what I do and hire a freelancer to do it for you.
You could use the backlinking method that I outlined in step one or you could buy your own backlinking software and train them how to do it for you. That way they create the backlinks for you and you get on with creating content.
You can find some really good reliable freelancers overseas in places like the Philipines and India at a reasonable price.
