Advice Needed Off The Most Experienced Members Of WA

Last Update: July 18, 2014

Hi Everyone

I need advice off the more experienced members of Wealthy Affiliates on the best ways to build worth while back links to my website. I have recently been concentrating on building links from social network sites using various methods.

But apart from that I am at a loss on the right type of links to try and build. I am well aware the best links are natural ones that happen from good content and sharing that content.

The problem with that is I am very pro active and I hate to wait for things to happen. So if anyone with experience in this field that has had results with their efforts please let me know what they are.

Thanks Alan

I'm not an experienced WA member but I do have a small bit of knowledge about backlinking

I am not a backlinking expert but can help with do's and don'ts

many people will tell you not to do backlinks at all but you can have a backlink strategy as long as you know what Google is looking for and how to impliment them properly.

I was going to do a series of posts about this - so far i have only managed to get the one on but I can get information to you quicker

see what you think of this first and tell me your thoughts / questions and I hope i can help

( this link is not for promotion it is to help with this question only )

so regardless of what people say backlinks help you to rank and better your authority and you must build them organically and with whitehat methods only

Maybe if you contact owners of sites in the same niche you can exchange links, I have done it the past with great success.

Did you ever plant a seed of some type of plant or a tree- let's say an apple, and you walk up next morning and found that the seed has become a tree- full of apples over a night!. And if this does happen I think I would be afraid to eat from those apples thinking something must be wrong here.
Any business is like a tree and must take it's time to grow, sudden success could mean sudden demise.
Nowadays Google is targeting backlinks like never before, too many backlinks even if it is good and your site is De- Ranked.

If you still insist on taking the fast track here is the right place to do it .(http://socialadr.com/get/begin06 ) just copy and past this address in your URL box above and this should be your ultimate answer.

Sorry I cannot help you here. I've tried various ways to improve my site using links, and so far nothing has really worked for me.
I will be interested though if you find anything out here.
Good luck! Of course I'm a long way from the most experienced! :)

What does trading links mean?

Link trading means, you put someone's website address on your website and they put your website address on their website.
When you have more inbound link, Google will give you a higher ranking. That's the idea.

The thing about linkbuilding now in 2014 is you have to be very careful with it and sometimes ( most of the time ) if you trade a link intending it to be a link for linkbuilding purposes Google will not hold any weight to it

So for example if you contact someone and ask to link trade, if they agree my guess is their site doesn't have a lot of authority anyway and so no point, the link won't do much for you. Google will take into account the 2 way link also and may discount it for that reason

If the site has good authority and high rankin and you contact them asking them to link trade, possiblty is they will refuse

The idea of linkbuilding is to build relationships not links. So when you contact someone it is a no no to mention links straight off the bat.

You should mention their content, what you think of it, if it relates to you in any way and how you think something may benefit. Perhaps you may mention a link of yours that may benefit but first build bridges.

Once you build bridges you will find more opportunities to build links with that website or they may even include your links without you even asking if your content is good enough and if they find it interesting and it is relevant to their content.

So my point is, when linkbuilding, do not think about linkbuilding. Make good content and go in search of building relationships ( not links ) and this is now the way link building is done by the experts

It's not easy, I am not an expert but I am coming aroun d to this way of thinking and learning these methods as I go

It is interesting that you said, "when linkbuilding, do not think about linkbuilding."
It is how they talk in Buddhism, very mysterious and hard to understand.
I would say: If you want to do it, do it. If you are scare, don't do it.

True if your scared don't do it, if you do it wrong it can harm your seo.

I don't know about budhism so can't comment but I'm talkingabout linkbuilding and how the experts teach it should be done

Because the old days of linkbuilding is long gone. Gone are the days of link sharing, link stuffing, link directories for the sake of linkbuilding, article sites for the sake of linkbuilding, they are all dead and so seo must not be on the mind when linkbuilding as strange as it sounds.

If you can adjust this mindset of linkbuilding you can become a good linkbuilder. Because that way everything will be natural, you will just be a messenger not a link builder.
