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?

wiki links wont count in a matter of months ..dont even bother. It is quickly turning into one ofthe most abused projects on the web .Even more so than DMOZ!

You simply cannnot turn over projects to the inmates..it's really that simple!

Im sure this is not the right attitude to take when doing link development.

- If it takes less than 5 minutes and a chance you might get a link then go for it no harm done!

- Im sure you will find pages of content that you can add to and in return get a link - pages thats not abused.

The "harm" is that you are doing it for LINKS ..not for the betterment of Wiki results..
That's the Harm..

Look it's just a current fad/gimmick and Google isnt going to let it ride long..

Looks good now but in 2 months everyone will be #*$!ing about it.. you watch

did google really not count those links..wowo I spent x amount of time on stuffing wiki with my links when I could have spent the time gettting quality links type stuff

If you are adding some quality information to the page then they will get more information, making it better. he link is a plus, if it stays on.

Im sure in 2 months time it will be full of links, but then again it will have more information and more links to where we will find more information...

Well, I think a wiki like IS a quality link. Think about it ok it might not be the best... But it will be on topic, some people read the wiki information and they might click through to find your information.

As long as people add more useful information to it im sure it will help people. Im not saying go ahead spammers: spam but I dont think '2 months' later it will be gone.

stuffing wiki with my links

Im sure some people do that, but as long as they add information the site should stay useful.

After reading some of the posts here (and getting a nice PM), I went to some wiki pages that relate to my niche. I added links to pages on my site that offered further information. It didn't seem like spamming to me.

Google has indexed some of those pages in a matter of days, and nobody on the wiki site has seen fit to remove the link, which tells me "it's a good thing."

The Wiki spamming thing has been going on for awhile now. I wouldn't get too upset about it being discussed in a public forum. Just a sign that like other methods of site promotion, it's reaching critical mass.

It's a bit of a shame don't you think? Such a good resource and it's being defaced by idiot webmasters.

The penalty should be castration.
