Blog Tip: Link-Building at Ground Zero

Updated on March 6, 2013

Link-Building at Ground Zero


Link-Building for Blogs

As I have shared in previous Hubs, it takes time and effort to increase traffic to your blog. There are specific things you can do in order to achieve this.

Building backlinks, which is also termed as “link-building” is something that has a snowball effect over time. As you build more backlinks, more traffic comes, and your Google Pagerank is increased if you are doing it correctly. Simply having backlinks from unknown and unranked sites and blogs will not help you.

Strategy for Building Backlinks

You need to figure out a strategy to build your backlinks. Sites with higher Google Pagerank are better for backlog. (Google Pagerank goes from 0 unranked to 10 most visited) If you can get sites that are ranked to link to you, then you can increase your index value in Google Search.

Inbound Links

An easy way to accomplish this is to have your social media profiles (that are searchable by Google) linking to your blog. Facebook, for example, would not help your Google Pagerank, because Google is unable to crawl Facebook. Redgage, on the other hand, is crawled by Google, and having a link on your Redgage profile would grow your backlinks.

Another way to get inbound traffic is to do a web search for "do follow" sites that allow visitors to follow links. One example of a do follow blog is the Odd Random Thoughts Blog.

Practical Advice to Build Google Index Value

One of my blogs has a Google Pagerank of 1. It took time and effort to get it to that point.

Outbound Links

Your blog increases its index value if you link to other sites and blogs that actually have a Google Pankrank between 1-10. (Feel free to link to my blog)

You can do this by either referencing my blog in a post or actually have a list of “Favorite blogs” or “My Links” on your blog that is crawled by Google. The second option is actually recommended.

In order to ensure it is crawled by Google, make sure you have officially submitted your blog to Google to crawl. You can do that here.
