Are You Using Backlinks to Build Your Web Traffic?

Google optimization is based on the premise that the more people like your site, the more credible it is and therefore it gets a higher ranking.

Right, wrong or indifferent…that’s how the game is played. So what are you doing to make sure other sites are linking back to you?

I recently read a guest post on http://www.convinceandconvert.com/ by Nicole Sorochan that outlined 14 Easy Ways to Build Backlinks. Nicole stresses that if you’re going to go to the trouble of doing backlinks to make sure to make them complete.

The more info you give the engines, the better chances you have of getting their attention. I thought I’d share five ways that hit home with me.

  • Google profiles - Create for key employeees. Add a custom link with anchor text (words that make up the link).
  • LinkedIn – Build a company profile as well as individual profiles on key people.
  • Digg - Great place to put articles you want to promote.
  • Stumbleupon - Another popular article discovery site.
  • YouTube - Create a custom YouTube channel for your company.

So what are you doing to capitalize on backlinks?
