Would you like to build quality links to your website and inner pages?
I want to show you the 5 incredibly smart ways to build links to your web pages easily.
Link building is important. Without links, your website/blog may never appear on Google first page.
But understand that all links are not created equal.
Some links are juicier than others.
Rather than waste your precious time chasing link farms and content mills, this post will guide you in making the right link building choices.
Without much ado, let’s get started.
1. Really Simple Syndication (RSS)
Really simple syndication is one of the strategies for building authority links to a webpage. I’ve been using it for a while and it truly works. If you’ve ever imagined building 100s of links to a new website without working your butt off, RSS may be your saving grace.
The process is quite simple. You’ll create a feed or copy the feed for your blog. It’s easy if you run a WordPress self-hosted blog. Then your feed URL is http://www.yoursite.com/feed
You’ll have to replace “yoursite” with your primary domain name. And in case you’re not using a permalink on your WordPress, but it’s important you do, find your RSS Feed URL at http://www.yoursite.com/?feed=rss.
So, what you need to do right now is to submit your feed URL to top aggregators. Those sites that accept RSS links are known as aggregators or RSS directories. Here are 5 aggregators to submit your URL to:
Or find the Top 100 List of RSS directories here.
Whenever you publish a new article, it’ll appear on your RSS page and syndicated across the directories.
So, the idea is to submit your Feed to at least 50 directories. Once you push the publish button on your blog, you’ll generate over 50 quality links, totally whitehat.
2. Guest posting strategy
Another great way to build authority links to your website and its pages is by guest posting on niche blogs. If you own a blog or website, chances are, you’ve heard about guest posting and all the benefits it brings to an online business. But are you doing it?
Guest posting is simple – you’d write a unique and valuable article, contact a blogger who has built a community of avid readers and pitch your idea. If your guest article is truly helpful, the blogger would gladly publish it.
You’ll get 2 or more anchor links to your webpage(s). You can even cite a relevant article from the article itself.
It’s actually a mutual relationship between the guest blogger and the blog owner. In all, you’d want to build a relationship so that you can build more quality links as your website grows.
If you’d like to guest post and build relevant links, here are top 100 sites that can publish your article.

Do you know what web 2.0 sites are?
Well, a web 2.0 site is a user-edited network. In order words, everyone has access to the content in terms of commenting, sharing, linking and editing and so on. Wikipedia is a typical example of a user-edited network.
These sites are resource centers. You could easily leverage relevant contents to build Google-friendly links to your web page. Some of the sites in this category are Squidoo.com, Hubpages.com, Tumblr.com, WordPress.com, Blogger.com, Wetpaint.com, webnote.com etc.
Take it easy. You could get banned if you spam the sites with irrelevant links. Become a part of the network. Join the discussions and build a following with members.
Write and publish contents that are easy to read and implement. You’re free to build anchor links on the article itself, not necessarily at the author bio. Web 2.0 sites would enhance your contextual linking system and improve your ranking quickly.
Remember, you’ve the opportunity of a lifetime to build as many links as possible, but don’t spam the network.
4. Social media strategy
Social media marketing is about engaging people and offering helpful marketing advice. No matter your niche, you’ve to be passionate about helping others. Yes, you can build quality links from social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr and the likes.
Although, such links may not be do-follow, but nonetheless, they’re important for SEO ranking.
They enhance the natural feel of your links and protect your website against Google Panda, Penguin or Lion (just kidding).
When someone decides to tweet your product or post to her followers, it’s a sure sign that you’re on track. Keep solving problems online and you’ll definitely build more rewarding links, on autopilot.
Press release distribution will send a one-way link to your website.
How would you feel if your website got picked and featured at Mashable, CNN, USAToday or any other media network out there?
A simple blog post might not make this possible, but a press release can.
Write your press release as though you’re reporting a news story.
Sure, the website in question could be yours, but don’t use the words I, me or first person’s pronoun to report the news.
Write in the third party. You truly want the media to take interest. Make your headline news worthy.
Write extensively and don’t be biased. Don’t just reveal the sweet parts of your story; use the negative aspects to convey your message. Balance the news story and eliminate every doubt.
Then add your website link below the press release articles and start distributing. A single article will get you a one-way link, directly to your homepage. But it’s worth it.
But see the cool part. If a news agency or media network decides to republish your press release content on their site, you’d get over 100 SEO-friendly links to your website in 24 hours or less. And secondly, you’ll drive thousands of people to your website.
That’s the power of a well-crafted press release. Go for it. The best free press release sites are: prlog.org, prnews.com, pressexposure.com, i-newswire.com. And for a complete list of top 50 sites to submit your press release, click here.
Build your links gradually
It’s important that you build links gradually. The rule of thumb is to publish more exclusive and value contents, then research niche blogs/website and build links one step at time.
On your terms, 3 – 5 new links to a webpage is fine. Don’t try to garner hundreds of links overnight – it’s unethical and could get your site Banned by search engines. If you enjoyed reading this post, leave a comment below. See you ahead!
