Here is an interesting blog from the Google Webmasters Blog: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2010/06/quality-links-to-your-site.html. Anyone interested in SEO should read the article carefully.
Here is a summary of the points made in the article:
- Promote within your particular community and CONTRIBUTE to blogs and forums. This does not mean spam forums and blogs but actually share your knowledge and experience with the community. Solving problems for people is a great way of doing this.
- Use of humour can be good to get lots of hits quickly but that it shouldn’t be relied on as a long term strategy.
- Beware of low quality directories and link sharing with random sites, these will ultimately damage your sites reputation
- Another great tip is to make linking to your site easy through social bookmarking tools
So if you have quality link backs in mind, start sharing your knowledge today.
