I thought it would be interesting to find out the top link building tips of the Blog Herald audience. What things would you recommend for getting links?
Here are my top three tips. Feel free to leave a comment with your best tips.
1. Asking for a link
Some bloggers are afraid to ask for links directly. But if you have high quality content, this tip works surprisingly well. The key is to make sure your content is relevant.
I usually send an email and point bloggers to one of my best posts. I ask them to mention it on their blog if they like it.
2. Guest posting
I’ve written about guest posting before but it’s worth repeating because it’s such a powerful strategy.
The main reason I like guest posting is because the success rate is high. As long as you create a high quality post, most bloggers will gladly publish it on their site and include a link back to your blog.
3. Linking out
I’ve found that many bloggers will link to you without being asked if you link to them first. This tactic works especially well if you send them a lot of traffic.
I once sent a blogger a lot of traffic. The next day he published a post welcoming my readers and linking back to my blog.
I don’t have a blogroll but I’m on a couple blogrolls in my niche. I was surprised to find these links because I never asked to be on these blogrolls. After some thought, I realized the blogs that had me on their blogroll were sites that I linked to in my posts.
What link building tactics have worked well for you?
