How to link your hub
Why do I need links?
Links help google determine
- What the hub is about
- How is it important for google
- Where to put your hub
- Generate traffic(get people to vist)
- Get you to the top of google
In the end it would be best if you keep on reading this hub, as it will help you get traffic, and earn a little more money, and it looks better for when goole looks at it.
Types of Links
There are only 4 types of links out there, but 3 that are most important, which will be listed as the top 3.
- Inward Links- This types of links require you to do nothing, it's a link that someone else creates from their website/hub on to yours. Your hub < Linking hub
- External Links- Not my favorite, but it helps your readers, and hopefully the other site will link you back. You make a link linking to another hub/website. Your hub > Other hub
- Reciprocal links- This is a win lose link, which seems fair to me. You link to one hub and that hub makes sure to link back to you, its a trade offer. Your hub = Other hub
- Three way links- This is a bad link that really shouldn't be used, or else google will find out, and penalize you. The purpose of this link is just to generate a link, without having the three hubs related to each other in any way. hub= Your hub = hub
How to find Links
- Got to google
- Search for your keywords
- Look at the top sites and see if they allow you to submit a link
Other Ways by google
- Go to google
- search for your keyword and at the end include +links, link, or site
- Then simply submit your link to relating websites.
How to get your Link
When you find a site that is related to your hub, look for an email address from the writer of the hub. Send them an email requesting you to add your link and offer to link to theirs back. When writing your email make sure you send them a personal email, not a add my link i add yours, done. No that really just seems like he's justing going to say, no, so instead...
- Use thier name if you know it
- Compliment them on their website and tell them which was the best part
- Tell them why they should link to you
- Say that it's important to have links, and show them this hub
- Say thank you for their time
Make friends with the person, the more personal it looks the better the response will look, and get you a link, so take your time with the eamil. Make sure you actually look at their hub/website and read through it.
Links you need and don't
Their links that you want and links that you don't, yes you don't want some of your links.
- Well known hubs/websites
- Hubs/sites that have a high PageRank, or hub score
- Hubs/sites with few links
- Not related to your hub
- Spam websites or hubs
- Few visitors or low hub-score
- Not well written and poorly put together
Just make sure that you are getting you links from good hubs, and that are worth your time, ask yourself would i look at this page?
Finding out if you have links
If you have the google toolbar then all you need to do is look at the PageRank bar in your google toolbar. It should be a bar, and if it's filled with green then that's great and your doing good with that hub. Now if it's empty then you should work on that. The bar shows you that the greener it is the more valuable getting a link on that site would be worth. If the page has few links then you'll get a better chance at getting clicked on. When you click, or right click on the bar it shows where the links are coming from. Remember: more links equals more clicks.
