It's time to get some new links!

Here's a nice way I came up with...

After you play the link exchange game to its fullest, and only have PageRank 5 and 200 backlinks, you might ask "what are some other ways to get links?"

How about Google searching for "Add a link" + "your keyword(s)"

Great idea, but because you might be missing many sites that just happen to use a different title for there "Add a link" page, I've created a list for other search terms to try.

Google search:

"Add a link" + "your keyword(s)"
"Add a site" + "your keyword(s)"
"Add URL" + "your keyword(s)"
"Add an URL" + "your keyword(s)"
"Submit a link" + "your keyword(s)"
"Submit a site" + "your keyword(s)"
"Submit URL" + "your keyword(s)"
"Submit an URL" + "your keyword(s)"

Search Google for all these, and you're bound to find atleast a few new good links. :-)

Anyone have any other good variations to try?

Ooh, just found some others to try:

"Suggest a link" + "your keyword(s)"
"Suggest a site" + "your keywords(s)"
"Suggest URL" + "your keyword(s)"
"Suggest an URL" + "your keyword(s)"

P.S. I suggest drinking a mountain dew, (or something with alot of caffeine) and then doing it. ;)

Since you're using quoted phrases in your search, also use "add a URL" and not just "add an URL". Much of the world pronounces it U-R-L and not "earl".

How about "Your Region" + "Add url"
and other various combinations with your region.

Excellent suggestions. I have done some of these, but never thought to use suggest or your region. :)

Slick idea. Any idea what the conversion rate is on this sort of idea. For instance, how many of the requests you make actually turn into a working link?

This is a great information thread. How about this?

"your keywords" + "directory"
"your keywords" + "directories"

Hi,

I'm getting an excellent conversion rate from this idea, perhaps because link forms are themselves a kind of information request and are therefore more likely to be responded to. Only trouble is there's a lot of PR 0-3 pages coming up with these searches - any way to weed them out? Then it really would be great,

all the best,

Jeremy

guestbook + "your keywords"

Let's not do the GB thing but if they're on topic and not being discounted it's worth checking out...

"keyword resources"

I thought this would be a great one. Indeed, I discovered another #1 listing for one of my sites :)

Guess I've been doing something right!

All my links on my link pages have been from results i have found from typing in "submit a site" + "keyword". Seems to always do the trick

You can also look for peripheral market/audiences to your own. If someone were to look in directory for your product/service, what else might they be looking for. Open new linking opportunities. So, you would use all the suggestions above for these peripheral keywords.

Here's my favorite from a few years back:

allinurl:wwwboard keyword(s)

<related>
[webmasterworld.com...]
</related>

I still don't know what a themed canonical vortal is.....

Paynt? ;-)

great list!

all of the above pretty much covers those actively seeking to exchange links.

so how about looking for links pages that don't solicit links but who just might add you if you ask nicely!

favourite links
cool sites
cool places
recommended links

etc etc [ all + keyword of course]
depending on your keyword area this can work well

webwoman had a very interesting idea...

"gossamer" + "keyword"

It turns out, "gossamer" comes from gossamer threads, which is a script that sites use for maintaining and adding there links.

The only reason I would shy from Gossamer though, is if your doing this to hopefully help your Google backlinks jump... Gossamer threads, from what I've seen make your sites link into site.com/cgi-bin/JUMP-ID=2345 (not a direct URL) But if your doing it just to maybe get a few hits to your traffic, than Gossamer is good.

I wonder if there are any other link scripts that might be good to try, plus your keywords...?

P.S. (guestbook + keywords) and (free for all links + your keywords) is bad!

Don't forget to visit the sites in the directories you find as potential partners. After all, these folks are obviously linking. May give you ideas for new markets or audience.

Okay. I've been using some of the methods in here tonight and have quite a few ideas/questions.

Right now I'm using HotBot (going between Google, FAST, Inktomi, and Teoma) and am trying these "ideas" with all four search engines. The question is how well does this work? I'm not checking PR (as I have no means) of the pages I'm submitting links to. Any concerns there?

Don't forget

"related sites" + your keyword
"related urls" + your keyword
