Today I want to discuss link building for your niche website.
Having other websites reference you (link to you) is a way to show Google that your site is important.
Typically, the more links you have, the better your site will rank in Google (i.e. Google will send you more traffic).
Before I share the strategies I would recommend, I should first say that you do NOT want low quality or spammy links.
So, if you are considering using automated software or private blog networks to get links to your site, I would discourage you from doing so.
The best kinds of links are those from individual webmasters that add a link to your site.
So, how can you get other website owners to link to your site?
Well, I have a few ideas to share and a few resources.
I recently wrote a blog post that covers 3 strategies that currently work pretty well for link building.
In that post, I mention these 3 link building strategies:
1. Top Lists - creating a "best of" list and then reaching out to the people you mentioned on your list.
2. Infographics - creating an infographic and reaching out to certain people and posting in certain infographic directories.
3. Guest posting - I even include an email template you can use to reach out to people with as you look for guest posting opportunities.
Now, there are a TON more link building strategies out there. At the end of the day, you need to find what works best for you and for your niche.
Hope you find some of these tactics useful!
