Every one know that One Way Link is the best when we are thinking about Link Building. But how to get one-way links is a big question for some persons. Here I am posting some ways to get One Way Links.
·Create a useful, interesting web site and other sites will naturally link to it.
·Submit your site to major directories, such as Yahoo! and DMOZ.org, in the appropriate category.
·Submit articles to article directories.
·Participate helpfully in forums, which allow a text link to your site in a signature.
·Give away free e-books that contain links to your site.
·Create simple web-based free software. Tell other sites, newsletters and forums about it and ask for a link to it.
·Create a Blog and get it listed in Blog directories.
·Starting a cute affiliate program also brings in lots of links
·Social aspect, sites such as digg, delicious, stumbleupon.com etc.
Friends, am I wrong at any point or am I missing some important ponits? Please contribute your opinions.
I am finding that many forums now have nofollow commands for the links on their pages as they have been spammed to death. Now all links in signatures, helpful links to information pages, etc. are not recorded as links by Google at all.
Whatever way you look at it, the best unique content is answers to the questions people are actually asking.
To give you some idea, I posted an answer on a forum, a journalist from a major national newspaper was asked the same question by a reader, found my answer, reproduced it in the newspaper and and on the website and also provided a link. This happens every few months to me... in the latest case, the journalist misunderstood my answer and misquoted me, leading to a few people to comment of forums and other websites, and of course they linked in.
Okay, so I may be lucky to have this situation occur (it's one of the few times I do get luck and my subject isn't exactly sexy!) But at the least, the questions I address on forums are noted down and later I can create content that answers them.
But on the whole, the PR/authority value of forum links is minimal... it's just old fashioned networking.
I think that forum signatures should primarily be utilised to attract humans not search engine bots.
From a SEO perspective, do vBulletin forums - used by most in this sector - employ nofollow for signature links by default? Secondly, even if nofollow is not employed by the forums, do the search engines give much juice nowadays to links from forum signatures?
