Massive Traffic -- Ensuring A High Rank

Apr 15, 2008
If you want to make the most profit possible in your chosen niche, then you need to do your best to ensure you build residual traffic. And what better way to do this than to win at the search engines? This involves a lot of steps.

There are onsite and offsite factors that determine whether you'll rank high for the keyphrases you target or not. But of them all (those that we are sure of), getting high quality links to your site happens to be the surest way of ranking high for your chosen keywords. Let's look at some ways to get those links...

1. Piggy-back on sites that have built a reputation by submitting your articles to article directories. This is a very effective link-building method. Furthermore, you can do it without spending a dime.

The good thing about this method is that you will determine your anchor text for each article submitted. This is a very good thing as you'll have more control over which keywords or key phrases you get ranked for.

Don't just submit one article to one directory and think you're done. Keep submitting articles at least once a week to as many article sites as you can find.

Bear in mind that you need to ensure you use the right tools and strategy if you want to get the most from this. For example, you need to ensure that each instance of your article on each article directory is unique. There are tools and services that take care of this and your article submissions.

2. Blogging is another way of getting one way links to your main site. Remember that a blog is seen as a different website from your main site. Therefore, links from it help you build your link popularity.

Lack of money is certainly NOT an excuse to postpone starting your own blog. You only need to have what you want to say. Just make sure it's some useful and relevant to your theme. You can start within a few minutes for free at either blogger.com or wordpress.com.

Another way of building your link popularity with blogs is by making useful comments on blogs that have a high page rank and then linking back to your site. Just make sure you comment on blogs that do NOT use the "no follow" tag.

3. Make sure you bookmark your articles on sites like digg.com and del.icio.us. Also give your visitors the opportunity of bookmarking your articles. These are quality links to your site.

Furthermore, it makes saving and sharing your content a lot easier. With so many social bookmarking sites out there, you can get high quality links to your site since most of them are sites that are highly respected by Google.

4. Submit your site to web directories. Some will review your site for free and include you if you meet their standards. Others will charge a fee.

Although Dmoz takes such a long time to review and include a site, don't miss it. But while you wait, remember that there are other directories that will help your link popularity.

You'll get a bigger rank boost from the established and respected directories. But that said, links from good niche directories will also give you links that will add up in your favor.

You can make your work a lot easier by using a directory submission service or software. It's up to you to decide what your time is worth and how much such a tool or service will save you.

5. Search for forums in your niche. Visit them and post useful comments (of course with a link to your site). Make sure you add value to these forums and you'll get the most out of this strategy.

The methods discussed are NOT the only ways to get links back to your site. However, they are some of the most cost effective. If you implement all of them diligently, you'll soon start getting oodles of free high quality traffic.
