Increase Link Popularity by Getting One Way Back Links As Part of Your SEO
A great way to increase your link popularity is with one way links, (links to your site from sites that you do not have a
link to), are good to have since they often convey more importance
to a search engine, than a link that might have just been a "link
trade" with no relevance.
One important way of getting one way links to your site is doing
manual directory submissions.
It takes time to get listed on a directory. How much time depends on
their human editors and on their availability to check all sites
submitted to their directory. It may take up to 2-3 months for some
directories to accept a site, as most have a large number of links
requests each day.
Even if it takes quite a while for a directory to list a link, it is
way better to spread this process over a lengthy period of time.
That way the process will seem natural by search engines. No search
engine will trust a large number of links of a new site being listed
in a short time, or with identical link text.
Directory submissions are significant, since major search engines
like Google and Yahoo use directories in their search algorithms.
Links listed in various directories help stabilize your rankings
when algorithm changes happen. They can increase link popularity
substantially and they are free website promotion for your site.
Submitting Articles to Article Directories
Another way of getting one way links and free website promotion is
by doing manual article
submissions. This process should be done in the same slow motion as
directory submissions. The submission process should be spread over
a longer period of time in order to get that natural aspect that
search engines are so fond of. With article submissions
you get 2 links out of each listed article, and of course, many
people do read the articles. So make sure you use quality
content for them.
Search Google for "article directories" there are a lot of them.
I have several favorites.
and goarticles.com .
Once you've submitted a few articles your articles can be approved
very quickly. I've seen my articles indexed in Google within
several hours of my submitting it to an article directory.
Once a directory publishes your article it can be picked up by e-zines,
fed to other sites with RSS feeds, picked up and published by
bloggers and viewed on the directory's home page for a short while.
To do so the re-publishers are required to publish your bio box intact
along with it. Usually they do. Your bio box is where you get to
strut your stuff with 2 or 3 links. Work in those keywords,
because you will be getting back links from this activity.
You also have a biography at each directory where you publish, and you
get to list links to your sites, blogs, etc. These are more
back links for you where you can control the anchor text and
I usually submit an article to a half-dozen directories, mixing up the
language in the bio box so there are fewer identical link and anchor
text links to be spidered by the engines. It looks more human
like to the engines. More about

Post in Forums and Comment on Blogs
Get involved in whatever niche community you happen to be in. If
you’re selling horseshoes, search for equestrian blogs, forums and
user groups relating to horses. When you find them, start by reading
other posts and commenting to the group. Build trust and get a
reputation and become known as an expert in the field. This does
take time and commitment, but the results will be well worth the
Another good way to obtain one way back links is to start a blog on
your topic. There are many places where you can blog for free, or
you could add a blog to your existing web site. Constantly
creating new focused content will draw the attention of the search
engines and bring you more traffic. Every comment and every post you
make will become a back link to your site. If you take the time
to become an expert in your niche, you can apply your expertise to
your blog and postings on forums.
Eventually other webmasters and bloggers will link to your pages to
come back for your quality content and recommend you to their
visitors. The search engines are getting smarter and smarter, and
they are looking for high quality content, so give it to them and
reap the benefits.
Want to increase link popularity for your site, then do all of or at
least most of the items above and give it time.
