Many people have questioned about link buildings for their websites. What is it? Who can do it? When is the right time to do it? Where can we do it? Why is it needed? How to do it? These are the common questions about it. Well, for me to say, I dare to guarantee that it is very significant for your own websites’ growth. Let us now dig into it deeper.

What is Link Building?

Technically, link building means the process of creating links to websites to gain popularity and website traffic. By building links, we can get quality websites to link to our own websites. It is just that simple.

Who Can Do It?

What makes it easier and simpler is everybody can do it. It doesn’t require special certain people to do it. No more requirements needed but knowing the strategies only. As long as you know exactly how to do it, just D-I-Y (Do it Yourself) and don’t wait others to start it for you.

When Is the Right Time for Link Building?

No exact time! Do it whenever you want. Do it whenever you have spare time (if your websites are not that important). And do it by sparing your valuable time if you know that your website is very valuable for you. The time depends on yourself and just you.

Where Can We Do It?

The best places for you to build links back to your websites are forum websites, articles sites, press release sites, newsletter sites, social bookmark sites, directory listing sites, and even in blog posting comments. There are many right places to do it as long as you know where.

But Why Is it Needed (What’s so Important about It)?

Definitely it is important! By building links back to your own websites, the most basic is you can increase your websites’ traffic and popularity. But there is even more on the reasons why you need it. With link building, you can get quality traffic from relevant sites that surely increases your sales.

Also, if you succeed to produce high quality incoming links, your websites will be respected as valuable resource that people can trust. The point of that is it helps to create the visibility and credibility of your sites. And remember, by building links in many places, your websites will obtain wider search engine exposure, meaning that It helps your websites to be indexed by search engines.

So How to Do it?

Now that you’ve found out where to do, just one more knowledge needed, which are the ways to build the links. First, you can build your website links by replying to forum posting or threads. Post helpful and quality replies, with your company signature and website link included. The more you reply in quantity and the more quality you have in your replies, the more traffic and credibility you’ll have.

Second, you can write quality articles or blogs about any good topics or your industry topics, press releases and newsletters about your company updates. Submit them to articles, press releases, and newsletter sites with links back to your websites. If people like your articles, press releases, or newsletters, they will click the link and visit your sites. More website traffic and credibility are in your hand.

Another alternative is by social bookmarking your websites or list them to directory websites. You can use social bookmarking sites like Stumbleupon, Delicious, Digg, and many more, with which you can bookmark your web pages that link to your websites. Bookmark your web pages, articles, press releases, blogs, newsletters and all members or visitors of the social bookmarking sites can see them and click back to the links to your websites.

Or, list your websites in directory websites either the free or paid ones. The more you list your websites and the more popular directory websites you use, the better traffic too you gain for your websites.

Even, you maybe never thought about this, blog posting comments! Posting comments to people’s blogs with link back to your site is also effective. But remember once again, quality and not quantity is required. Don’t post any comments just to gain many link back when it is pointless as readers will get annoyed rather than impressed.

After you have just learned more about link building, it is now the time to practise and optimize it for your website and traffic.
