Create Backlinks for Your Website By Submitting Them to Website Directories

blogaggregators-667x445

 

Web directories are websites that show different categories and sub-categories which contain user submitted websites. The idea here is that visitors can easily find websites in their area of interest.

Our role is to get the website we are trying to rank for in as many directories as possible. Now remember, the bigger the authority of a directory website the better. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t submit your site on less known ones, on the contrary it will add to the number of backlinks but it won’t have such a big impact.

 

LIST OF BLOG AGGREGATOR WEBSITES TO PROMOTE YOUR BLOG

One of the hardest things that blog owners run into today is promoting their writing and content – you might have the greatest blog on the internet about a certain subject, but with no readers and zero traffic it doesn’t really matter if your article is excellent or awful because no-one will be reading! How do you solve this problem? Promotion using blog aggregators is always a solid plan. By submitting your blog to different aggregator websites, you are promoting your content in front of thousands of different people – and if your content is truly good it will usually rise to the top – leading to even more exposure. There are many blog aggregator websites available – most of them are free, but there are some that charge an upfront fee or a submission fee in order to submit your blog posts or website links. I’ve organized the list below in “Free” and “Paid” sections, so you can easily see which ones to target and which to avoid. Most of the blog aggregator websites listed below require you to sign up and create an account first before you submit your blog, unless otherwise noted. Read more…

As you see they are free and once you create an account all you have to do is to submit your website and wait for approval. Take note of it on your spread sheet and remember to check back to see when it’s been approved. Once that it’s done, well, you got yourself a backlink on a respected website and won a few more points from Google.

Create Backlinks Submitting Your Site on Review Websites.

stars-1128772_1920

 

It’s as simple as it sounds, get your website up on a review directory website, write a nice profile with what you would like to improve and be sure to post that backlink. That’s why we are doing this after all. Here are a few websites that you can start on.

and so on…

There are many, many more. I recommend aiming at those that have high authority. A backlink on one of those is more valuable than ten backlinks on other less popular sites.

This method should give your site a little boost. Never rely on just one method, especially when Google algorithms are ever changing. A good practice would be to do as many as possible but not to many so that you can keep track of them and have everything in order.

 

Aside from the fact that it looks nice and it’s very professional it helps you track your progress, see where you started where you are and where you are heading.

Keep it simple and try different methods, keep track of them and see what works best for you.

news-1746491_1920

 

HARO, it stands for Help a Reporter Out and it’s a website where journalists are looking for ideas or bits of information from people that are a part of the subject they are writing about.

The intention here is to make an account and answer to requests that reporters may have regarding your area of expertise or the topic that your website is built around.

 

Here is an example of how a request looks like

You will receive tree requests a day simillar to this one:

haro-example

 

There are a few more other websites like this and I would encourage anyone to join them. Build a plan of action or project, join the websites, start answering requests and build a spread sheet. Then wathc for results using SERPlab and other tools.

Here is an article with a few more of them and “how to” information so that you can start right away getting those backlinks. It even shows you how to use HARO

 

Guide for responding to reporter queries (like HARO, ProfNet or SourceBottle)

One of the easiest tools for do-it-yourself publicity is to subscribe to reporter query services like HARO (Help a Reporter Out), SourceBottle, ProfNet and the like.

Guide to responding to reporter's queries (like HARO)

(Those are services used by journalists and bloggers to find experts, quotes and information for their publications.)

Just sign up, scan the daily emails and respond to those that match your experience. For a lot of professionals, it’s not as nerve wracking as cold “pitching” (contacting a journalist or blogger and suggesting a story yourself.)

Responding to HARO queries has gotten me ink in a wide range of publications like Fortune, the National Federation of Independent Business, BizSugar and the New Zealand Herald (multiple times), along with interviews on podcasts and radio.

I’m a total fangirl.

I saw a HARO query that I thought would be a great opportunity for a woman I’d recently met at a business conference, so I sent it to her.

Next, she and I had an email exchange.

She said she was nervous and had no idea what to do.

I gave her some advice.

This is a one man job and doing it consistently every day for half an hour to an hour will definitely bring results in a month or two. It’s going to take a little work in the beginning but once you get the hang of it you can easily enjoy your coffe in the morning while doing it.

How to Build Backlinks For Your Website by Writing Testimonials

thank-you-227344_1280

Imagine that you are a writer, offer a service or sell a product, it doesn’t matter which one it is, one thing is for sure. You would love to receive a letter or an email back from your clients saying that what you offered to them was of great value and more than sure you would be inclined to post that testimonial on your webpage for the visitors to see.

How is this going to help you build Backlinks? It’s quite simple. Start writing testimonials for others. They would gladly show it on their website and to show that the testimonial is real they will post a link to your website for sure.

It’s very easy to write a testimonial, all you have to do is to show the reader in which way the product or service helped you.

An Easy to Use Template for Writing Testimonials

Word of mouth has always been an important part of business development. The power of personal experience, shared by real people, is enormous. Asking for testimonials and reviews is an easy way to share proof of your awesome. But, what happens when you’re asked to write one? Are you struck dumb?

Writing testimonials is tough!

If you deal with other organisations, you’re probably being asked for a testimonial or LinkedIn recommendations more frequently. As a business owner you understand the power of this social proof but when you actually sit down to summarise your experience in a few lines, the blank page can be cruel. The secret to writing great testimonials is to cover off a few key points. The following questions will spark the inspiration you need to start writing.

  1. What was the problem you needed to solve?
  2. Why did you choose the business you did?
  3. How did they solve your problem?
  4. How was their solution unique?
  5. What did you particularly like about their approach or delivery?
  6. How would you summarise the experience as a whole?
  7. Would you recommend the business to others? If so, who?

Now be sure that the website you post on is niche related, Google latest updates are now saying that Quality rules over Quantity. In other words it’s best to have those backlinks on a website that have’s to do with led lights if your website is selling led lights. In the example that I just gave if you post a backlink on a cooking website it could do you more harm than good.
