Re: How to Source Quality Inbound Links

Go with directories. There are many out there relating to your industry. If your site meets the guidelines try to get it on dmoz.

That's a good start.

Re: How to Source Quality Inbound Links

There are lots of ways to get quality inlinks for little to no cost, but keep in mind that they will cost you quite a bit in time. First of all, directories are a good source of links and there are some high quality directories that are free out there. But be choosy. Directory links should not be more than 10% of your overall link portfolio. It sends red flags to the search engines and they tend to devalue the links if they see a sudden influx of them.

If you are a writer, write some original content that is valuable and offer it to a site free of charge with the stipulation that they need to keep the text link in the body of the content. You can also syndicate articles on some free sites. A little research will go a long way.

Is there anything you can offer instead of money? Perhaps a 10% discount to the subscribers of their newsletter? Free t-shirts to the first 10 visitors from their site to yours? Is there a partnership you can invest in by promoting something they do on your site? Do you have blogger friends who can blog about something your company is doing that's being highlighted on your site? When you start thinking outside the box, you can come up with all kinds of ideas. Good luck!

Directories are useless and spamy in most cases. Go for blog networks.

Re: How to Source Quality Inbound Links

Can you expand a bit on "blog networks".

How do you go about that?

Re: How to Source Quality Inbound Links

Do you mean comment links in blogs? I thought you meant some other automated or networked method.

There are so many ways to build your traffic such as Directory submission, search engine submission, article submission and press release submission.

Re: How to Source Quality Inbound Links

I doen't mean comments. Comments are good and make 3-10 of them every day. But most of them are nofollow.
What I mean is paid reviews.
