Newbie needs help
problems with inbound linking campaign

Hello Fellow webmasters!

I have just finish making my 70 page web site. It’s main keyword is <snip>. All the 70 pages are targeted to a keyword adding suffixes & prefixes to its main keyword <snip>. (Ex: <snip> …)

In the past three months (I’m just 3months old when it comes to SEO) I’ve red all the articles on SEO @ webmasterworld including Brett_Tabke. I have optimize my site to perfection. All of my pages contain more than 300 words H1, H2 tags, alt, keyword domain, keywords in url’s & files etc.

Now the only problem that I have is my inbound linking campaign! As I don’t have my own unique content (I use <snip> Affiliate program) I think submitting to OPD is pointless. Also I don’t have the kind of money to get a priority submission for yahoo directory or to buy auto submitting software in order to get links from directories as I come from a very poor country in south Asia.

At the moment the only links that I’m getting is links from <snip> guestbook’s (PR 4-6), but will I be penalized for getting hundreds of links from guestbook’s? if not will it be better if I submit the guestbook URL to google after signing it? Other than this from where cam I get good inbound links?

Also I have 13 web pages @ geocities under “<snip>” category with PR 3 – 5 so if l link all of these pages to my main site will I be penalized for spamming?

I’ve hared lot of talk about google update (or whatever). Is that a real update or just google testing something? I’ve taken a look at Brett_Tabke’s Google Update History chart but did not find any sign of a update there. If not when will be the next update?

Help Me Brothers! There is nothing that I wouldn’t do to get in to that Top 10!

Colombo – Sri Lanka.

Hi New_bee

Welcome to the forums.

Email other sites in your sector who have links pages and see if you can exchange links. Also apply to small niche directories who give hard links out e.g. no cgi routine.

Consider other countries who are not directly in competition with you.

You said you were in south Asia. Does your country have its own search directory/engine? If so, dominate those first then work your way up the chain to your key objectives.

Try a google search like this:

intitle:add+url OR intitle:submit+your+site OR intitle:add+your+site your keyword here

That will bring up add url pages for your keyword. Be careful to try to submit only to pages with pagerank.

Good luck, hope this helps you.
