Fits4life, here's an added tip for linking. Use keywords that are relevant to the content of your site as the link.
example: Suppose your site is about "health Information" but the name of your site is "My blog".
You can help your site rank better in the search engines by linking keyword related text. In this example, I might choose to link the words "health Information" to the site. This would give me a keyword related text link for the search engines to follow to the site.
Don't be afraid to use different keywords (make sure they are relevant to your content) to link back to your site.
Building a network of keyword related links pointing to your site will help you rank better in the search engines. Give it a try!
