There are many ways to get a backlink to your blog. One of the easiest and the most popular way to do that is by commenting on other people blogs. This is free but it’s really time consuming. Furthermore, you can’t be sure about the quality of the backlink that you get from the blog. When talking about page rank juice, the authority of the blog is important if you want to increase your page rank in the future.
Another way to increase backlinks to your site is by submitting your links to web directory. People who really concerns about quality backlinks to their site will probably submit to authority blog directories like DMOZ.org or Yahoo Directory. DMOZ web directory is free but it’s really hard to get into the list. You need an established blog or site to get into it. Yahoo Directory is much more easier, that if you have the cash to spend on it. You need to pay some money to get listed in Yahoo directory.
If you’re just starting out a new blog or really new in the blogging world, you can find a free web directory to add your site too. There are too many web directories out there that you can choose from. You can search for them in your favorite search engine and I’m sure you’ll get tons of them. There are some guidelines on determining a good web directory which I will explain more in my next post. For the time being, try to search them out using the search engine and add your blog link to the web directories.
For starters, go to your favorite search engine and search for terms like “web directory”, “free web directory” or “add url”. Try to add your link to as many web directories that you can. Slowly you will see growth in backlinks and traffic. Now where the traffic comes from? I’ll explain more on my next post, so stay tune!
