What are the different ways of doing link building for your website?

Different ways of doing link building for your website

While we are all working on our own sites, many of us tend to focus on working on building links to our own sites while we are aware of the link schemes Guidelines Google has set for us to see.

For a blog, I can see how I did it when I am blogging around, it is being indexed in many blog search engines when I add them in my submission. And because of the blog behavior, we tend to link one another because of some interesting topic.

But for a website, no matter how I see it, I just couldn't think of a way to do link building for it, except to build a link page, adding myself to those industrial directories, or to buy links...

Link Page: Seems like a link scheme which might give you a Google Ban!
Directories: Google declared that they wouldn't index directories since it doesn't give them unique contents.
Buy Links: It's yet another link scheme again!

Somehow, it seems like every way is an illegal way of link building...

Anybody out there who can share some ideas about legal link building?

• Create a useful, interesting content and other sites will naturally link to it.
• 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 downloadable software which contains links to your site.
• Create a Blog and get it listed in Blog directories.

Something just struck me when I see so many ideas with regards to submitting to directories... I realize that even though Google might not be indexing the directories, the people might still be searching the directories and link you naturally for what you have written...

It's all about the after effects of what you have written... Thanks for the reply :)

One other thought that might be helpful concerns the use of RSS feeds. RSS feeds are generally associated with blogs, and most blogs create a feed automatically. However, there is no reason that you can't write a feed for each page (or selected pages) of your site and submit those feeds to the RSS search engines. You could even make an RSS feed out of your sitemap and submit that as well. If you mass submit using a tool such as RSS Submit, then you can reach 80 or so RSS directories. If you do this only every several months or so, your submissions shouldn't be considered spam, you will stimulate traffic flow, and may as well increase incoming links.

I have found that article submission is helpful. The more the better. That is, hundreds of good articles will be more productive than just a few. I understand that submitting using the paid version of Article Marketer or Isnare is recommended, though I have always just manually submitted my articles.

Oh yes article submission as well... individual RSS feeds to maximize the exposure! That's good! Thanks!

Thanks Friend,

Their are various way to get Quality links.
Article Submission, Blog Posting and Rss Feeds give us Good links and those link provider sites will help to get targeted traffic from links in the author’s byline.

Then another way is Social Book marking.
Social book marking is an activity performed over a computer network that allows users to save and categorize a personal collection of bookmarks and share them with others. Users may also take bookmarks saved by others and add them to their own collection, as well as to subscribe to the lists of others. Best example sites are [del.icio.us...] and [diigo.com...]

Then one of the latest and quality link procedures is one-page content advertising. It may be paid listing or swap link with theme sites.

Ok, we have

1) blog posting to get targeted traffic,

2) social bookmarking whereby we share with everybody and they will start to spread around to everybody.

3) paid listing or link swapping might possibly go against Google link scheme... It depends on how we do it... But I am not sure exactly how..
See [google.com...]

Writing unique articles and submitting them to article directories, as well as having a blog (that you UPDATE) and submitting that as well are some of the best and easiest ways that I use.

Something else that I hear is useful is the submission of videos to video sites such as YouTube. I have never done this myself, but the rumor is that it is quite effective in bringing people to your site. Whether or not the traffic is productive, I don't know.

Yup video is useful! It acts like a viral product. I tried doing some YouTube videos and put on my blog. And it is receiving quite a number of viewings and it spread like virus without me touching it.

Though it doesn't really build any links, it does spread word to everybody. Hence a possibility of people writing about it and link it..

thanks! Anymore? I am trying to explore as many ways as possible so as to help myself and to help all of you too..
