Build Links, Build Business

Increasing your online business hinges on your ability to optimize your web page for the search engines. While different search engines look for different things, some of the larger and more popular search engines such as Google and Yahoo, look for keywords and links. Keywords are important because the Internet is made up of words; however links are just as important because they allow the search engines to weigh your web page in terms of popularity, so to speak.

Of course, you might be wondering how you can possibly get links to your web page in order to increase your search engine results. Fortunately, you have several options. You can offer to pay individuals and webmasters for a link to your site and you can also offer a reciprocal link trade.

A reciprocal link trade works because most web pages are interested in increasing their search engine rankings and traffic so most will be willing to host a link to your site if you host a link to theirs. The easiest way to achieve this is to target web sites that apply to your target market, but are not in direct competition with your products and services. Then, put up a link to their site and send the webmaster an e-mail asking for a reciprocal link. The webmaster will then either link to your web page, or not. If not, simply delete the link to that web page and start the process over. It will be successful most of the time, but if not don't get angry, just keep looking for other sites.

Links are the backbone of any successful website. Without them, you have little to no traffic. In order for your website to gain valuable exposure, you need to develop as many backlinks as possible. These links can come from reciprocal link exchanges, directories, articles, and a slew of many other sources. The key is to gradually build a large collection of inbound links which specifically target key words. The bottom line is, links are essential to your websites success.
