How To Get Links To Your Blogs

You will probably know how important it is to get links to your site if you want to have more credibility with the search engines and also if you want to generate some income from your sites using Adsense and Amazon etc.,

So how do you get these links I hear you ask.

Well, the best place to start is to get your site listed on a Web Directory such as the Open Directory which is used by Google, AOL Search, Lycos and many more. Signing up is easy, choose a topic in which your site relates, sub topics will then follow. When you have finished just click the "suggest URL" at the top of the page and enter your details. You will have to wait then to see if your site has been accepted.

Backlinks are also important to get your site noticed. These are links from one website to another. The most important part of backlinks is the anchor text, these are the words that show up as the link. You will need to use words and phrases that are appropriate to your site

For example, say you have a site on "skin care" you should use words like, "cleanser","moisturiser", "exfoliating" or phrases like "i use a cleanser twice daily" or "drinking water is good for dry skin". Include the link in the phrase or word.

This is how it would look <a href="http://yoursitename/">cleanser</a>

The anchor word is "cleanser".

If you use twitter, set up an account with Twitterfeed. This tool will update your twitter account each time you post on your blog letting your followers know of the new updates. It is easy to use and very easy to set up. Just set up your account and then copy your blogs' feed URL into the text box and set up a new feed.
