Free directories are still a good way of building links to your website. There are some good quality free and paid directories out there, here we have listed 100 free directories that tend to actively review and accept submissions. We know it is frustrating when the ones you find are low quality and rarely or never review the submissions.
Please note that some of these may not be applicable for your business whether they are industry specific, missing a related category or country specific. However, this should give you a few ideas and hopefully a number of decent links too. Read more
If you expect your content to go viral or at least get the traffic you want without doing anything apart from pressing the ‘Publish’ button, you’re wrong. There are many ways to help people find your content – social media is the preferred method, but bookmarking is still useful, if used correctly.
The travel sector has been one of the fiercest online marketing battle grounds for some time. You can either put your tin hat on and wait for the dust to settle (that’s not going to happen I hope you realise. Ever.) or you can take advantage of the opportunities the web has and flourish.
Social bookmarking sites offer the opportunity to save web addresses, aka bookmarks, to public sites. Read more
Last month Google officially added large-scale guest posts, advertorials and press releases to the list of links that can violate their guidelines. Naturally this has caused confusion in the search industry and people are doing their best to read between the lines. Are there exceptions to the rules? Should you remove links? Should you nofollow? Should you disavow? Or should you just keep the faith and carry on creating good content?
Today saw the final ever Linklove conference and we were there to send it off in style with the Distilled team and another fantastic line-up of speakers including Rand Fishkin, Ade Lewis, Wil Reynolds and Ian Lurie. And boy did the conference go out with a bang!
Search Engine Optimisation is not the same game it was two years ago and evolves at rapid pace. Without the knowledge, skills and drive to keep informed and up-to-date, SEO’s can quickly become behind with the times.
I can’t help but think that in a Post Penguin world there is far too much talk of link removal and Disavowing. Aside from the fact that I’m getting so bored of hearing about it, it’s also an unhealthy attitude for any SEO to be purely focused on cleaning up links. There is more to post-penguin life than removing or disavowing! This post will open your eyes to creating a link building strategy, because if all you are doing is disavowing or removing links, it is not enough and it’s just not cool. #RANT. Read more
Not giving visitors the ability to bookmark now leaves you running the risk of losing them completely. Sharing content has become as much a part of using the Internet as shopping online.
So including a bookmarking widget on your pages is now an important part of any site.
I have covered link building in previous blog posts but this one aims to provide you with some more Advanced Link Building Strategies. These strategies will expand upon previously mentioned methods of attaining links as well as postulating entirely new mechanisms for delivering the much wanted link juice to your website.
What separates these strategies from other more basic techniques is primarily the planning or preliminary work involved. Most of these methods are more suited to larger websites in more competitive industries rather than say local businesses competing within a small geographical area.
