Link Building: Make The Links Come To You!
When, and I do mean when, you get burnt out on getting links to your site, take a break and make the links come to you for awhile.
Use all the time you’d spend chasing down links, blog commenting, web 2.0 social marketing and the like to create a masterful piece of linkbait.
Watch how many people link to you and thank your lucky stars you didn’t have to go beating on their door to get them.
You got new content for your site that will impress readers, increase RSS subscribers, get editorial links from all over the place, higher search engine rankings just from slowing down, wrting a great piece (or having one written) and posting it.
Really, compared to all other forms of link building, this is by far the easiest way to get new links despite making your brain sweat a little over a good linkbait piece.
You might strike out a couple times and not get a huge response. But you still have good new content up on the site at the end of the day. And that’s more than you have at the end of some days when not a single person responds to your offer to write for their blog!
