Default New Link Building Ideas

Its not every day that you run across new ways to find (good) link opportunities, so I wanted to take a moment to post Debra's articles over at Search Engine Land on a Link Building Foundational Blueprint. I'm sure everyone will find at least one new idea for building links in these articles ...

Part 1: A Link Building Blueprint: The Foundation
Part 2: A Link Building Blueprint: Utility Linking
Part 3: Proven Ways To Use Content To Attract Links

Logan - your first link is not correct (Parts 1 and 2 have the same URL and go to Part 2). Part 1 should be

Although it is always very tough work to identify the exact way out of building links but I appreciate the efforts done by you in this regards. Information provided here worth appreciation. Thanks dear for sharing with us.

Logan I found the article at SEL very informative and useful. I didn't even stop to think about Virtual Chambers of Commerce as I'm used to the brick and mortar ones that I generally don't join. I've already started googling ones in my niche. I'll see how it goes. The one thing I read in that article that I really don't see much benefit in anymore is submission to directory submissions ESPECIALLY DMOZ. They used to be extremely relevant in terms of your rankings and sending referral links but now they are gasping for life. Many people including myself don't even submit to DMOZ because their site submission process is terrible and vague, and secondly the referral traffic you get from your niche directory is scant at best. Post more of these when you find them, I do linkbuilding everyday and it's very exhaustive as all of you here know. Finding new and useful methods is like finding a hidden gem in my opinion.

Thats commonly accepted at this point. But, my take which I believe is similar to deborah's is that if you work the directories correctly they are worth your efforts. You have to learn what to do and not to do. For example with dmoz, learn their standards once. Go ahead and submit and forget. That's all when it comes to dmoz. do it, it is worth it for link/etc if you do get included. If not, forget it. Takes minimal time/free.

Other directories have some other advantages. For example inclusion in bestoftheweb costs 149/year. That might not make sense for your link strategy, but if you put together the directory submissions like Deb does - similar to your comments with virtual associations/groups - there can be golden nuggets to developing solid back links that are consistent and excellent quality.

Here is a google search of Deborah's articles at SEL

[site:searchengineland.com "Debra Mastaler"]

Read up on those pages for many more ideas, and in particular about directories and other tactics. The more you use, the better off you are in the long run. Deborah's a pro when it comes to that, including directories. Even link exchanges "can" be ok, at times.

Cheers

Default Utility Link Building

Hi All,

not sure if i'm being a little slow here but when using some of the common phrases to find similar sites for utility site building do you not just find your competitors? Think I may have misunderstood?

Our site sells Promotional Keyrings so it's fairly tricky to find interested blogs and forums dedicated to this topic..
