I want to develop deep links to my State pages. I am looking for any advice on how to proceed. Here is my thinking so far.

1. Create a single page with all 50 State codes and have a link to this page link on the State pages.

2. Have Link to this page popup.

3. Add the code to each State resource page.

Any ideas on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

This approach, of having a "Link to this page" pop-up appear when someone visits the page, assumes that you're doing something to get people to visit the page in the first place. That's the important part. You're going to need some sort of promotional plan... advertising, social marketing, news releases, personal emails, etc. I suggest reading the discussions in this forum's library for promotional ideas.

Here's one of the best such articles you'll find....

Link Development vs. Traffic Development and Staying with the Times

Most important... your content needs to be good enough to be worth discussing elsewhere and to be worth linking to. This suggests (to me, anyway) that it's got to be good enough that I'd bookmark it for myself and recommend it to friends and associates.

I'm not particularly enthusiastic about the pop-up approach, btw. I find pop-ups very annoying and try to block them. I definitely wouldn't be inclined to link to a site that assaulted me with a pop-up on every page.

I can't say whether a simple "like us? link to us" message on the page works at all these days. Perhaps others who've done this recently will have thoughts.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your reply. I agree with you a pop-up is not the way to go. Does anyone else has any success with this and would like to share?

The webpage already get a lot of traffic I am hoping that some deeper link will help them rank a little higher. All State pages currently rank in the top 20 and the homepage ranks in the top 5 for keywords.
