Getting Linked As A Part of Your Internet Marketing Strategy to Boost Traffic

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

It’s an old adage in the advertising world that the best form of advertising is word-of-mouth advertising. What this means is that the best way to sell a product, generate interest in a service, or just about anything else is by getting other people to talk about it. One of the best ways to generate traffic for your website is to get people to link to it, which is the online equivalent of word-of-mouth advertising. By making getting your website linked a key part of your Internet marketing strategy, you are significantly more likely to generate high volumes of web traffic.

How To Get Linked

Getting other websites to provide a link to your website can be a difficult process. For one, you can’t just start sending out emails with requests to be linked – this is spamming, and is notorious for both being irritating and not working very well anyway. However, you can contact administrators of similar websites that run content similar to your own, and offer to exchange links with them.

However, this is a bit more complicated than just sending out requests. Simply put, when someone else provides a link to your website, they personally are endorsing that website. Because of this, many people are careful about providing other links, because they don’t want to tarnish their reputation. Therefore, the first thing you should work towards doing before asking other people to link to you is to generate unique and interesting content.

Social Media Linking

The other big way that you can generate traffic to your website through links is through social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter. While you should definitely have accounts on these services for your website, it’s best if you can get other people to spread your links around too. We’ll go over some great ways that you can help spread the word in a future article.

Getting web traffic to your website, especially through linking, is a lot like a snowball at the top of the hill. When you first push the snowball, or your website, down the hill, it will be rolling slowly and it will be small. However, the further it travels down the hill, the more snow it will accumulate, making it larger. This, in turn, will allow more snow to cling to the ever-expanding snowball. Your first task is simply to roll that snowball up, and then push it down the hill.
