Gaining More Traffic? Get Other Websites To Link To Your Website

June 6, 2011
Linking is the process of pointing visitors to your website or to another websites. And any link that points to your website from another website is called inbound link, while any link on your website that points out to another websites is called outbound link.

This process is one of the most challenging things about search engine optimization. Webmasters will only link to websites that they think will be of value to their visitors. So how can you do that?

Start Writing Good Contents

The easiest way to get other webmasters to link to your website is to write good content. You will find it much easier to write good content if you are promoting products and services that you know something about. You don’t necessarily have to be the expert in your field, but being familiar with the landscape is important.

Another good way to generate content is to let your visitors contribute. For example, if you create a product review page consider adding a form where users can add their reviews and comments. This will make your site more interactive, and is a great way to get free and unique content added to your site.

If you don’t have confidence in your writing abilities or don’t like writing, consider hiring a ghost writer to create content for you. Hiring a ghost writer can be a cost effective way to create volumes of unique content. Most ghost writers will work on a per article basis, which allows you to evaluate their work before committing to bigger writing projects.
