Part I – What is link building on websites all about?
As I had said earlier, your overall goal should be to attract and drive specific traffic in order to get the most bang for your time and effort.
In this Part One of five series we’re going to discuss 4 areas:
- Back Links
- Reciprocal Links
- How to check for back links in my website
- How to check for “key” directories for my website
How to check for back links in my website:
There are primarily two ways you can check for back links to your website. First, type this format for your individual website, link:domainname.com in a Google search engine. Be careful that you do not put any spaces in it and make sure you put your correct extension. For example if your domain name is a .net then replace .com with .net etc. The second way to check for back links to your website is logging into your Webmaster Tools account within Google then access your Dashboard area and you will see a section labeled “links to your site.”
How to check for “key” directories for my website:
The easiest way to find key directories for your website is to type one of your keywords+directories in a Google search engine. For example if I were searching for my website it would look like this; coach+directories. The result will include key directories for your niche.
The main thing to remember is that link building will bring more traffic to your website and it will also effectively increase your PageRank.
