Ethical Link building is the best way to make sure that you get your site high on the search engines without any fear of crashing down when the big G lets another cute animal out of its cage.
How is it done though? How do you build links that won’t get you in trouble with the god of online search?
It’s actually very simple if you think about it. Just make sure you build natural links.
By “natural” I mean create links that add value to the page that you’re putting it on. Don’t just create spam, actually contribute to the improvement of the page content when you drop your link.
Here are three easy ways to build links to your site that won’t get you in trouble with Google.
#1 Blog Commenting
Find dofollow blogs and make relevant comments. You can get a link back to your blog with each comment so that passes link juice to you.
This method isn’t that powerful since there will be a lot of people doing the same thing but at least it’s easy to do. And continually making relevant comments will not only help your rankings, you might also grab new readers if your comments are good enough to attract attention.
#2 Forum posting
This is pretty old school but it’s an amazing way to get a relevant link to your blog. Look for forums about your niche that are dofollow and become active in those. Actually even the no follow forums are pretty good to be active in as well, as long as they’ve got a lot of readers.
You’ll not only be able to pass link juice, you’ll also be able to siphon a couple of forum readers to your blog if you post relevant and engaging replies along with your link.
Make sure you contribute to the conversation because forum moderators will usually delete posts that are done solely for a link.
#3 Guest Posting
Definitely the hardest of the three but it’s also the one that brings the most rewards.
Blog posting has and will always be one of the best ways to gain relevant and high quality links. Just make sure that you pick blogs that are in a similar or in the same niche as yours and you’ll see amazing results.
The best thing about blog posting is that it doesn’t only get you a link, it also introduces you to the readers of that blog and this can potentially drive a ton of traffic back to your site.
There you go. Three Google friendly link building methods that you can do to increase your rankings and drive traffic to your site.
Yes they might seem pretty obvious and I know they’re nothing new if you’ve been in the SEO business for a while. But you’d be surprised how many people ignore these tried and tested methods for the easier 1000 links for $5 on Fiverr.
Remember that if you want your site to prosper, you need to stay on the big G’s good side. With all the Google critters running around and on the way (maybe), it’s better to play it safe.
