Why Strategic Link Building Is Important For Your Website’s Traffic

Online strategic link building will vary from person to person, but one thing we know and that is, your website won’t get the targeted traffic without a good amount of quality back-links to your website.

So, the more high quality backlinks, the more traffic you will receive, providing they are relevant links to your niche.

There’s more to it than just link building, you must include article marketing.

Online link building is just one part of the strategy for attracting more targeted traffic to you website. Writing great articles with relevant keywords is another key factor, you have to choose your keywords wisely then post them to your website.

The idea here is to get better domain authority. Search engines rank the pages on websites and not the website itself. In turn you want to get more targeted traffic, more relevant information about your products or services, and build a huge opt-in list of prospects.

The prime back-links will be when you get your links from a site that has authority, such as Ezine, Hubpages, educational websites, government websites etc.

A Surefire Way Of Getting Back Links

Writing articles plays a huge part in your marketing plan. When writing your articles, you have to make sure you are writing about information that people can learn from and put to use in their daily lives. After you have composed your article, you want to make sure you have included not only your web address but, you want to include the article page address as well, then you can submit them to article directories.

After submitting your articles to the article directory you can ping your articles at pingler.com, ping.com, onlywire.com. You also want to include writing a press release and submit to news venues: these are great ways to build back-links.

Stop Wasting Your Time And Money

Many people say it is easy to get back-links, that’s not always the true, You have to make sure that you are getting relevant links. You could get dozens at a time, but if you are not getting the best relevant links you can get, your traffic will not change, so you wind up with a lot of back- links, but no added targeted traffic, and you will actually see your DA and your traffic decline. You do not want to spend thousands of hours on building back-links and get lower traffic rankings. That happens all the time with marketing  masterminds, and gurus who try to just cast a wide blanket on all sorts of links, that does not work.Do not fall into that trap, and make sure you take your time and make an educated attempt at creating your strategy for long term use. A good long term, well educated plan, can make long standing plans for you. When it comes to backlinks, always remember that quality matters much more than quantity.
