My Google Friendly Backlink Technique

Backlinks that Google will love you for are easier to get than you may think. Taken from my Google 101 ebook

There is no easy or sustainable way in order to solve this but for one. The really only good way to ensure that your site gets linked is to ensure that it contains good content. For any site on the Web, incoming links are very important, especially for Search Engine Optimization. In fact, you may find that this is the hardest part of SEO for you to implement.

But many people have found that incoming links are less important, especially where you have more specific and unique content on your site.

* A fantastic resource I have been using successfully for more than a yearis Jonathan Legers 3WayLinks. Basically what happens is that you will have up to 250 oneway links to your website. You do however have to put a links page up which will have up to 250 outbound links. Not a bad thing. Google gives a lot of weight to outbound links. This system is very cheap and a breeze to setup. All the links and domain added to this system are approved and monitered by actual humans. My results have been more that satisfactory, with more than 677 page one results for my network of websites. Well worth the money.

Make your website accessible to everyone including Google.

This is as important as all things previously mentioned. It is important that you make your site accessible to those who are visually impaired; as this will help search engine robots find their way around it also.

It is important to remember that Google is blind, so even if you are not bothered whether blind people use your site or not (which I all should be in today’s world); you still need for it to be accessible.

What this means is that you should use real headings, paragraphs and lists, and avoid using anything, which may interfere with the search engines spiders.

Be Careful when making a Website Submission to Google
Although this is often overrated, submitting your site to directories and search engines can actually be useful. This is especially important if the site happens to be new and has not as yet been picked up by Google and many of the other search engines that are around.
But if you do want to look at submitting it to some directories, you may want to consider using Yahoo Directory and Open Directory Project and some directories specific to your topic. For example, if you have a blog, try submitting to http://www.blog-connection.com/submit-blogs.htm

But you will need patience, as it can take several weeks for any submissions to be processed unless you pay for it to be listed.

Do not try to fool the Search Engines. Never use cloaking, link farms, keyword stuffing, alt text spamming or any other dubious way to fool the SEs’. Although they may work for a short time, you not only risking getting your site penalized, but it could actually be banned from search engines altogether.

As search engines like their results to be accurate, they just do not take kindly to people trying to trick them. So be warned!
