I would like to build links for a relatively new tutorial website. We have good quality content video tutorials on mainstream software.
My idea to build high quality links was to offer people that have good quality tech sites a selection of our video tutorials to embed in exchange for a good context link.
Has anybody tried this and if so what is the best way to find contacts?
This could cause your posting rights to be turned off if the webmaster objects to your using their PM system for commercial reasons, or if someone complains of receiving a commercial solicitation. This is not an ideal way to approach link building on a community. The reason is because it is an abuse of the Private Messaging system. PM systems are provided to encourage members to forge community bonds with each other. Exploiting PM systems for commercial interests violates the spirit of their intended use.
There's a discussion about more sophisticated ways to approach communities in the library. Anyone wishing to understand creative ways of approaching online communities should take a look at it.
I have approached a few blogs offering them the free posts, but so far only a few have responded. I have had some more luck over the last few weeks however.:)
Thanks for the advice.
