In your experience, what is the fastest ways to get quality incomming links to website?

My site is about widget improvement and what I do is search on google phrases like:

“submit site” widgets
intitle:”submit site” widgets

This way I find some directories where I can submit my link, usually without returning link.

Can you recommend me faster ways?

The fastest way to get incoming links: create a REALLY REALLY great site with LOADS of useful and informative content --- and links will come to you without you begging for them to link to your site.

Well, ok, that's the best and ideal way to get links but not necessarily the fastest. But many here are forgetting that sites you want links from - the quality sites in your field -- are also looking for quality sites that they can include in their list of resources or recommended sites. And you don't even have to reciprocate their link.

For fastest, search Google for "Add URL" or "Submit Your link" and submit your links.

Check the backlinks of your competitors and request links from these sites. Also, check the links pages/directories of these sites.

  • Post something so dumb that bloggers will make derisive comments and link to you
  • Post something funny (viral)
  • Post hateful and venomous content that will make people hate you so much they will link to you and warn people not to visit
  • Offer free downloads of sick videos and pics (one site achieved a PR 9 doing this)

buy em! Contact webmasters in your niche, not direct competitors but folks who offer something that may compliment your product or vice versa.

"what is the fastest ways to get quality incomming links to website?"

Great ideas, I particularly like the suggestion to offer free downloads of sick videos and pics... but that might not be for everyone... lmfbo!

The best way is the good old fashion way, search out appropriate sites to contact and request a back link or link exchange... preferrably non-reciprocating.

Use a tool like Zeus, Seo Lite or some other, there are lots of them out there, but if you do, use it professionally and don't use it to create anything that resembles a link farm. Before deciding on a tool or software package search the forums, post questions etc to get opinions of people such as those on webmaster world.

I'd recommend against buying links, but it isn't because you'll bet banned, that won't happen, its because it's too damn expensive. I'd recommend a service such a "link it forward" instead, it's simply a way of connecting webmasters to a central location to exchange links in the most appropriate way... on topic, non-reciprocating, and by invitation only. It's new,innovative, and a heck of a lot cheaper than paying for individual links.

That is my opinion and I'm sticking to it...

Stretch Dog, and it's time to go home!

PRWeb press are inexpensive and if you have a decent site you might get some press coverage (and links from news websites). Google seems recognize the URLs in the release as backlinks.

Start a couple of blogs and give your sites ROS links from them.

Of course then you'd have to develop inbound links for the blogs, and then you'd want them to be unique just to be safe.

Blogs with decent content get their own links within days, in my experience, no link ex req's required.

If you discount blog links 20%, and you get 10,000, then you've now got 8,000 regular links.

If you discount blog links 90%, and you get 100,000, then you've now got 10,000 regular links.

The thing about blog links is that it's remarkably easy to get lots of them in a very short amount of time. So unless you completely disregard them (which G never world because of the viral marketing that goes on), it'll always be an advantageous way to gain links for short-term sites.

That said, I see some devaluing of blog links, but nothing that's making a large impact in the competitive categories.

Awesome, thank you for your speedy reply... guess i better learn how to set up blogs and bring them traffic.

Can u, in a few words, explain "how blogs can get so many links in such a short period of time"...

I wonder if Blogger powered blogs, which now have special "comment spam" counter measures are having their links discounted?

Wiki : effectively a CMS which can be edited by the general public (sometimes restricted to members so requires a login).

"your keywords" + "wiki"

Don't the comments in blogger blogs redirect, effectively stripping out the value of link popularity and anchor text?

Movable type however is something completely different.

Additionally I've also seen Y! pick up some blog comments a few days after making them.

What do you mean you hid it pretty well? May be that was the problem, do not hide it, but put it in the most relevant place and give it a good description, though it is a valuable resource for readers and it will not get deleted.

Or even better, if for example you sell green widgets for apple, create a section where you describe all kinds of different widgets for apples and put your link and other links as well there.

No idea, but I don't see why not - the page is in G's index and robots are allowed to follow.

I get a fair bit of traffic from my Wikipedia entries though, which is more than welcome. Links are not all about google - they do actually provide traffic direct.

In fact, my biggest referrer (other than SE's) on one site is from a leading wiki - that gives me about 300 uniques a day. It cost me nothing and I wrote it myself.

A "hidden" link will never last long. Play the game and make it genuine. Then it'll be up there for good. The same goes for blogs.

The OP was:-

what is the fastest ways to get quality incomming links to website?

So I wasn't talking about spamming.

Not a lot is faster than editing a wiki, and they can be a good source of traffic and a nice anchor text link.

Your mileage will vary depending on how many wiki's there are in your sector and the type of site you operate.

TJ you're absolutely correct, it's by far not just about G. But I'm in a position at the moment where I need quality backlinks for my sites in a hurry.
Most of wiki pages in my niche have pr5, so it would be a decent boost for me to get 50-60 back links from them.

As for blog writing I follow a different strategy. I just spamm a few thousand guest books with a simple text like "Wonderful site, yada yada...." and a link with an anchor text where allowed or link in a homepage icon.

go to wikipedia dot org and you will understand how it is done. Find topics that are most relevant to your theme and submit valuable information and links.
