I am new to link building. I am trying to build links for client career sites. I have been requesting links from edu's,blogs,articles,forum posting, checking competitor back links with seo spyglass, amazon askville,wiki answers,aol answers. The success rate is about 5 percent. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or other tactics? Most of the link building articles,webinars etc are more based on products not careers. Any help would be great. All our link building is strictly white hat.
Thanks.

5 percent's seems pretty good to me too. Keep up the great work!

Maybe 5 percent is a little high. It is most likely 3 percent. I did not realize that success in link building is so low.

3 percent on 200 sites overall. Some bigger names get a lot more links. Some of the sites get 0. The disapointment I tend to see as a personal failure. Any help or suggestions would be great.
Thanks!

Many colleges have a career center that includes links for students who are looking for jobs. Your site is not listed in your user profile but if your content is useful for these students the career center may link to your site. These would be one way links without a link from you back to them.

Yet another reason why link building is like sex.

Link building for your niche is more or less the same as link building for any other commercial niche.

First step is identify who you want visiting your site. The best links are related to traffic.

Wheel is not being facetious. Link building is the same as in dating. First question is, what kind of a partner are you looking for? Let's say you're looking for a tea party type, in their thirties. Where do tea party types hang out? What clubs do they join? What activities to they participate in?

Go to a Sarah Palin book signing
Join political clubs
Volunteer in political campaigns

That is the EXACT same thing you would do for finding a link PARTNER.


Who is the ideal site visitor?

What is their station in life (cultural/economically/socially)

Where do they hang out on the Internet?

Who are the Internet influencers?

Have you considered becoming an influencer?

Etcetera, etcetera.

That's the first step, which is really the hardest. From there it's all the various contact techniques.

Good luck.
