Internet Marketing and Better Backlinks - Different? Better?


Why Link Building Will Stand The Test of Time

I just ran into an insightful article on Search Engine Land called Why Manual Link Building Will Never Be Obsolete that I would like to share with you.

> Why Manual Link Building Will Never Be Obsolete

It makes a good point about differentiating between manually posting and getting good links and “bulk link building” which has always been risky and has become more and more dangerous.

It’s much smarter to build links manually that you have control over rather than just dump a bunch of garbage that Google will most likely recognize as “spammy behavior” and discount heavily if not outright penalize the sites that are connected to the mass linking.

That’s why the contextual links Blogging Underground members create in relevant blogs are so powerful. They are not bulk oriented, but rather thoughtful links that reside within content that is relevant.

A handful of good quality contextual links will get you a lot further along than a blast of poor quality links.

Links will always count – especially from relevant and trusted sources – it’s more of a matter of our focusing on adding value rather than bulk dumping a bunch of auto generated garbage out there. That certainly is not effective any more.

Can posting articles with links help you rank higher?

Yes posting articles with links can help you rank higher! This linking trick is very effective when done properly!

If you post relevant articles with “contextual links” with the right mix of your target keywords as the anchor text, you can absolutely boost the rankings.

The problem is, unless you have your own blogs on many different servers, it can be a lot of work trying to find good places to post your articles doing this trick the best way possible.

Face it – unless you own the blogs yourself it can be a huge time waster trying to convince someone else to let you post your article with your links in it the way you want.

That’s why people love Blogging Underground and our network of 100’s of blogs!

What kind of links work best right now?

If you want your web sites to be successful and get search engine traffic for free then you need to do some of your own work and get some good links pointing to your best pages!

To get the best results with your websites and get lots of free traffic for your target keywords, you need to be involved and do some work building the reputation for your website and pages.

It’s like anything in life – you can’t just sit back and wait – you need to be involved in your own success.

So what kind of links work best right now?

Keyword text links still rule! Especially within good relevant content like a related article!

And get this – it works INTERNALLY on your own site, but even better if your links are in articles on sites hosted on servers that are far away!

Ideally the articles are on sites that the search engines already love. For example, getting text links for your keywords in relevant articles in blogs that are already indexed by the search engines and are updated regularly really works like magic! These kind of in-content relevant links should be a part of every sites linking strategy to get on top.

Link Mix – Diversity Rules

It is very important to have a good mix of links. Link diversity. Not just the same kind of links from just one type of site or forum or comments etc. You need a good variety of places that link to you.

For example – one of the reasons that LINK BLASTING like a robot can harm you is that there is a FOOTPRINT that is revealed when you blast comments in a forum, or article directories using the same script, or any of a number of specific types of sites that spammers have figured out are easy to get links in.

The reason spammers love them is the footprints make it easy to find the sites to get the links in. This works against you as the search engines know this.

The footprints show there is a similarity and the links get discounted or even worse your site gets penalized or even banned for spamming links.

Avoid blasting with automation if you can. More times than not blasting will get a site in trouble.

Social Signals

You also need some good social links too – like tweets on Twitter with your URL (even if shortened or nofollow). You can also benefit from Facebook and Pinterest links!

The idea is for your social profile to help dillute any possible patterns or similarities that may be found in your overall profile.

Here is what I do.

Me, every time I add a new artice to a site, I usually publish it as a page (URL #1) and also create a post (URL #2) to announce it with a relevant mini article and link to URL#1 internally (on the same domain).

I will then tweet about both URL’s from my main Twitter account for that site (more than 1 helps) – I will also like it on Facebook and/or post about it there – AND if the URL’s have an image I’ll pin it on Pinterest.

I’ll then add the RSS feed to a few RSS Directories including RSS6.

RSS Feed directories are also good to backlink your backlinks – simply submit feeds from any BLOGS you have posted articles in that link to your pimped pages.

In-Content Links

The most important links you need for your URL to rank high are from articles on different domains with lots of relevant related words.

To make sure my main article page gets RELEVANCE SIGNALS for my target keywords I’ll make sure there are links from at least 4 or 5 good quality related articles on domains that are not hosted on the same server.

Me, I use the Blogging Underground network of blogs. If you don’t have access to them, you can always use free hosted blogs or submit to article directories, but the links are not as good and you have less control and the process takes more time.

Posting articles in the Blogging Underground blog network is fast and easy and the articles get published instantly.

You can use other sites for posting articles with links if you have access to them, but the Blogging Underground Blogs work like magic and are fun and easy to use.

The idea is to make sure Google has RELEVANT KEYWORD LINKS coming from PAGES that have LOTS of RELATED WORDS to what you are linking to.

Usually this link strategy is enough to get an article page to rank on page one for my target keywords. Often I’ll go sraight to the top (depending on the reputation and age of my site I am linking)

That’s usually a good start for the social signals to hit and the reputation building articles to help establish relevance and push up the rankings.

Fresh links!

I will usually come back a week or two later and make sure a few more extra fresh links are coming in to show the page is fresh and happening.

You also need to do this if you find your ranking is slipping. Usually a few keyword text links in a few more articles will push you back up.

Important: make sure you have some variety in your keyword text. Don’t link them all perfectly. Make sure some of the links pointing to the page have extra words – or a partial phrase or even have click here.

That’s one of the things that has changed. You can’t have TOO PERFECT of a link mix or it will actually work against you.

That goes for the text in your links and the KIND of links you are getting and diversity of servers the domains are hosted on. You need to have lots of different IP’s pointing at you – otherwise we’d all just build a network of blogs on one server and it would work. It doesn’t.

That’s why the Blogging Undegrround blogs are hosted on so many different servers and IP addresses. Plus with members contributing blogs we have a huge diverse pool of IP’s that the articles can be published on.

Diversity is important.

It’s never good to do things just one way. Mix it up! Variety is the new norm!

Just make sure you have at least SOME links from articles with related content pointing at your best pages. This is essential to build the reputation for your pages and help push them up.

IS there risk in going out and getting your own links?

Yes, there is some risk – there is with anything you do to get ahead of your competition.

If you play it too safe you have ZERO chance of getting on top – especially for competitive keywords.

If you are not willing to risk failure then you will have very little chance to succeed!

So either you do nothing and have little risk or you do something and have a chance to win big.

Doing nothing is accepting what you get by sheer luck and is most likely going to bring very little or even nothing. Your competitors will NOT be doing nothing – will they?

You need to do MORE than your competitors or THEY will be on top of you.

The strategy we use at Blogging Underground for linking still works because the fact is the kind of links you can get from articles in our blogs are the most effective and work well to get you on top of the search results pages.

Do you want to let everything happen naturally like they want us to do?

If you do nothing to ensure your own success, you have little to no chance of succeeding.

If everyone keeps following the bad advice of doing nothing, the biggest companies and sites will start taking over more and more niches.

They won’t stop promoting their sites. They’ll do what many are afraid to do. They’ll work hard to get top rankings – and so should you because the rewards are too great to let them fall to simple chance and luck.

You create your own luck!

If you want top rankings – you need good links!

The only people who have a chance are the ones who DO STUFF to move up. Link building gets results.

I am not saying to do comment SPAM or blast links or do anything evil or unethical – we have never suggested you spam – but I am saying you need good links and the only way to get a super healthy link profile is by getting at least some of your own links yourself.

There is some risk when you do anything to get an advantage – but if you simply post good quality articles in good blogs like in the Blogging Underground network and have keyword relevant links pointing to your web pages (which are relevant) there is nothing evil or unethical about that and it will help your rankings on search!

Just be sure to keep things mixed up and diverse. Don’t be a robot or act like one.

This works well on all the sites I have started the past year or so and I regularly get new sites on top by following the strategy we teach at BU.

Now – get out there and start building your sites and do the things that will bring you success! It’s there within reach if you want it!

> Blogging Underground members get the right kind of links any time they need them! You should too!

Look at my blog which is # 1 on Google!

Look at my blog which is # 1 on Google! I’ll show it to you!

Hi, it’s Mike Liebner here, the internet marketing guy and it’s been really crazy this past week since opening the doors for the official launch of  Blogging Underground! I’ve done so much work packed into such a short amount of time – but – hey – it’s worth it as Blogging Underground now has more members than ever and it’s still going nuts one week into the launch!

 Now, I know most internet marketers are weary about sharing their websites and showing you actual top rankings, but I am going to show you one of my sites which is currently number one for a good volume “exact match” keyword with high profitability.

I have a free 48 minute video download for you where I go to Google and look up my keyword and show you my site which is ranked number one! Then I show you how YOU can do it too!

Please register for my Blogs Equal Money Newsletter and I will send it to you immediately!

In the “Link Your Way To The Top”  video I show you my actual dog blog which is ranking #1 on Google and I give you the full lowdown on what you need to do to get top rankings just like this any time you want! I show you the site and tell you what I did so you can do it too! It’s much easier than you may realize if you get a couple of things right!

I’m not afraid to do this because my site DESERVES to be number one and the way we get top rankings at Blogging Underground is not evil or something you’d be afraid to tell GRAMMA about! – inside joke – if you wouldn’t want to tell your Grandma how you did it – it can’t be something you’d be proud of!

I’d share this with Gramma for sure! No guilt!

So… I got to number one by creating a good site that serves the target keyword phrase and has a small amount of links pointing at it from some of the Blogging Undergound “announcement blogs”.

Nothing too complex. It was easy! Anyone can do this!

Is it a great site that should win awards? NO! But it serves the target keyword well and I am sure Google is more than happy to keep it at number one because people who click on my page linked on top of Google will be happy with the content they get. (continued – read more of this article…)

What are best places to submit RSS Feeds?

I need your help! Where do you submit your RSS feeds? What are the best sites to get some good link juice?

I’ll tell you one website – the very best site to submit your RSS feeds – but PLEASE comment below and tell me some more websites to submit the RSS Feeds from my blogs so I get some good SEO benefits!

I am preparing to do a new training video on how to use RSS Feeds for backlinks and the best places to submit them to get some good link juice AND/OR traffic.

Those 2 don’t always go together! LINK JUICE and TRAFFIC! In fact some directories use sneaky redirect links or nofollow so they don’t pass any benefit to the backlinks. Other directories bury your links and the pages they are on will never get found! Or the links suddenly will disappear!  Some directories don’t even get their pages indexed by Google or only get crawled once every 4 years… Those weak RSS Feed directories suck and are a waste of time to submit feeds to!

 I want to know the ones that SUCK so we know which ones not to waste time on – but more importantly I want to know the ones that you think are REALLY good for SEO!

I’m looking for the best ones! I want to know the RSS and Blog Directories where you can submit your RSS FEED URL and it gets listed the best way possible for SEO purposes and ideally will list the posts on pages on the site with real links that send juice and traffic!

It’s harder than you may think! Most of those RSS Feed directories people submit to will do sneaky stuff that isn’t really good for getting link juice or even traffic. Why bother submitting?

That’s why I created my own RSS Feed Directory site called RSS 6http://www.rss6.com/ – which does things the right way so that bloggers with feeds get the ultimate SEO benefit!

Check out RSS6 – there is a video tour there – it shows you how I made the site to pass maximum SEO benefits to the feeds submitted!

It took effort to make RSS 6 a good site for linking – but it was worth it!

Everytime I add a post to a blog – I will submit that blog RSS feed to www.rss6.com and man – I am telling you – it really helps to be linked on RSS 6 and you notice it fast! Combine that big immediate boost from RSS 6 with a few posts in the Blogging Underground network of announcement blogs and you can bring a new site from complete obscurity to the top of Google in record time!

> Video: Post Articles in My Blogs

Well – I know my RSS feed site works – but are there others?

Are there any other good sites to submit RSS Feeds to that will actually produces a noticeable immediate SEO benefit?

Please tell me! Share your find!

I created my RSS site and shared it with you guys so you could get fast free links!

It’s time for you to return the favor!

Tell us OTHER good sites to submit RSS FEEDS to and get good free links that really pass juice to our pages!

Your comments are appreciated! (continued – read more of this article…)

Add Your Blog Feeds to My New RSS Directory

Need backlinks? Add your RSS FEED and get linked instantly!

I just wanted to make sure that everyone is aware of my new feed directory site RSS 6 which I made for you guys to get links FAST for your blogs.

Simply set up a new free account and then login to add your RSS FEEDS.

The site is very unique as it was made from the ground up to be “marketing friendly”! It will link your most recent post on the front page of RSS6 plus it will create a PAGE for your feed with the keyword you choose as the TITLE of your page on Rss6.

The page will also list your other posts on the page for your feed and unlike other directories – the links are actual HTML links  toyour pages. No redirects or cgi mumbo jumbo – just pure links so the pages get noticed fast!

Also – unlike most directories – we actually keep an archive of your posts – they are permanent in that they will alway sremain in our index of post URLS from your feeds – however – a big distinction is that the pages do not automatically update to show your newest feeds. (continued – read more of this article…)

Does Google Trust You???

Does Google Trust You??? Or are they watching every little thing you do?

All too often – us “seo types” will rush out and try to grab the big prizes without putting in the proper time and going at a natural pace. I’m guilty of it too on occasion. It’s hard to restrain myself… but I have learned – that when setting up and introducing new domains – sometimes it’s better to back off and take time instead of hammering and cranking fast and furious.

Do you know what I mean?

For example – you don’t want to come out of nowhere and add a zillion pages to a brand new domain.

You don’t want to have TOO MANY backlinks pointing at pages that just were released. An on and on.

That stuff simply is NOT NATURAL and raises flags and alarm buzzers start going off.

Patience and restraint in the world of SEO can go a long way.

We need to be earning our places by doing things the best way – not always the fastest way. Now don’t get me wrong – automation and speed have their places – but unfortunately – that’s something that usually goes hand in hand with hardcore site spamming.

Some tools used in moderation would be fine – but in many cases when you give a person the power – they want to use it and abuse it and that will bring attention to the patterns of the particlular processes. (continued – read more of this article…)

Top Rankings? Traffic? Both?

Why do you do what you do? Do you want TOP RANKINGS???

Do you want TRAFFIC???

Ideally you want BOTH!

One is not good without the other!

In our quest to build successful web sites with lots of keyword packed content, we often get sidetracked and spend time on things that aren’t really doing much in the way of ROI.

Return on Investment

ROI is not just for ad spending like PPC – it’s also a “return on investment for time spent on a task” or if you like acronyms – let’s call it ROIFTSOAT.

The reason I bring this up is that I regularly see Article Underground members targeting keyword phrases that are either TOO EASY or TOO HARD.

The keywords that are too easy usually bring in very little traffic – even with a number one ranking.

The keywords that are very hard to rank for (on the first page of Google) also usually bring in little or no traffic unless you’re ranked near the top. These ULTRA competitive keywords can be almost impossible to get a top ranking for! Everybody wants to be on page one!

What I am trying to convey here is that it’s not where you RANK or what you are targeting that veryoften will bring in the most traffic and make you the most money.

In fact – if we’d slow down and snoop around our stats a bit we would most likely find that there are MANY keywords bringing us traffic that we have NOT targeted. (continued – read more of this article…)

Not All Backlinks R Created Equal

Not All Backlinks Are Created Equal – some are simply better!

Here is the link to a very detailed and info packed article I just wrote on the AU article blog that should finally put to rest any confusion about IP Addresses and how they affect backlinks.

>>> IP Addresses and Linking
– stop by to read it and leave your comments please!

OK, now let’s talk briefly about IP Addresses and Linking and my new article called “Not ALL Links are Created Equal – IP Addresses Matter – A Lot!”

Click Here for article >>> IP Addresses and Linking

I am in a very fortunate position as I have a direct connection with you guys and hear about the things you guys face out there in the trenches. Every once in a while I run across a member asking for help who can’t understand why their page or site has dropped off the top 10 or has disappeared completely.

9 times out of 10 when I analyze the site and start poking around I will find some obnoxious and over zealous linking patterns leading to the site. It could be some kind of spam link directory scheme, or automated article submissions with obvious spammy resource box linking, or it could be excessive linking from the same places without natural “real world variety”, or it might just be lack of variety in the text used in linking.

Getting Links and Traffic from Announcement Blogs

I have a brand new Article Underground training video for you. The video is called Getting Links and Traffic from The Article Underground Announcement Blogs.

It was a little embarrassing though, because as I was trying to FTP a file in the video the server was having problems – stay away from that host – you’ll see who the host is in the video… Don’t worry – I edited out my harsh words to the host!

Vary Your Link Text (and eat your vegetables or else!)

Vary Your LINK TEXT (and eat your vegetables or else!)

Text links are a great way to help boost your search engine rankings – especially when they have YOUR keywords in the LINKS!

Search engines love this stuff… ummm… in moderation… 

Just like in the real world where you need to be careful NOT to over do some things… such as overeating that funky chunk sweet fatty ice cream stuff which may taste good… so good it’s hard to stop eating it once you get started… but don’t eat too much of that sugar filled crap because you might just get a tummy ache… at the very least you’ll gain some weight and a zit or two (a real world penalty by the way!) 

Just like in the real world – there are penalties for excessive behavior in SEO! The days of hammering a SPECIFIC KEYWORD PHRASE in the link text for a page are long gone.

Read on Garth – the good stuff is coming >>> (continued – read more of this article…)

Link Text – Breaking Patterns and Keeping Natural

To get a top ranking for a keyword phrase on Google and the other search engines, your web page should have that exact keyword phrase on the page itself PLUS it must have good links pointing at the URL (your web page).

If no links point to that URL – Google will assume it is a page with little or no value.

Taking this a step further – links are BEST when they have GOOD KEYWORDS in the LINK TEXT.

LINK TEXT : the text that is found within the LINK pointing at your web page.

A banner or image link is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, but even better is a good text link.

When they see a text link with your keywords in the link text – it helps them to decide how they will rank you when poeple search for that keyword phrase.

Putting the right words on your web pages pages is a step in the right direction, but if Google NEVER sees any of those words in LINK TEXT, either on your site or as linked on other sites, there is very little chance they will rank you on top for any of those keywords.

The solution is to to find out what PHRASES and keywords are on your pages and do your best to get links to your page with the exact words.

HOT TIP: Use the AUKDAT Keyword Density Analyzer Tool to find out what single, 2 word and 3 word phrases appear on your web page. Simply enter a URL and AUKDAT will tell you the words that are on your page (and also show you which words could appear MORE OFTEN! ie if a KEYWORD PHRASE appears more than 2 times it is more likley to bring you traffic).

Good SEO – Breaking the Patterns!

I’d like to discuss how ugly patterns, excessive repetition and blatant footprints can be the ultimate buzz kill when it comes to getting top rankings for your primary targeted keyword phrases on Google.

I’ll explain what some common patterns, repetition and footprints are, and I’ll explain how to remedy the situations so that sinking ships can be brought back up to the surface!

Often, when a web page suddenly declines in rankings it can be because of the links that Google sees pointing at your web page. Often some simple strategies can bring your pages back to the top! Don’t panic or freak out! I’ll help you get your pages back on top!

I am fortunate to communicate with a large number of Article Underground members and Article Marketing News newsletter subscribers on a regular basis, both by email and through the private members forum. I have the unique opportunity to discuss SEO and optimization discoveries as they develop. I also regularly analyze a large number of web sites and see many common situations.

When starting an online business as a “web publisher” it’s easy to get caught up building sites and adding pages and overlooking important details such as applying simple logic or practical strategies.

Because the Article Underground Content and Traffic System focuses on building pages and adding links I can see how some people may take the building process to it’s extreme.

I tell people to stop wasting time over analyzing and focus on getting started building web sites! I instruct newcomers it’s more important to get the ball rolling and then learn from your small victories and successes and build upon them.
