Link Building To Boost Traffic To Your Website
All affiliate marketers want traffic to their websites and blogs and want to improve their page rank in the major search engines. One way to get a higher ranking in Google and other search engines is to start building backlinks to your website. Backlinks are links from other websites that link back to your site. Most websites with good high quality backlinks are more important to Google than ones with low quality links. If you have popular websites that are similar to yours linking back to you, Google will send targeted traffic back to your websites.
The best way to build backlinks to your websites is to trade links with websites that have similar content to yours. You also want to make sure the sites have good content and make sure the site owners are not trying to trick Google just to get a higher ranking. If you link to a website that is not relevant to yours or the have little content to bad content, your website will become guilty by association and your page rank will become lower and you will not get any traffic at all. It is your responsibility to make sure websites have good quality content and links. Another thing to avoid is linking to sites that have a very low page rank. If the page rank is a zero or a one and you link to it you are only hurting yourself. The link will be of no value to you at all.
When starting out in affiliate marketing or marketing your own product, writing articles is a great way to generate backlinks to your website or blog. You should write several articles a week and submit them to popular article directories. Many of the popular article directories have high page ranks and if you associate yourself with them, you will be on your way to successfully building good quality backlinks to your websites. The more you have, the better your page rank will be. Also when you comment on a blog or site that is relevant to yours you can build backlinks. Just make sure to comment to blogs with great content.
