Here is another Link Building video I made. I originally was going to use this for a guest post on Link Building Bible, but I just read that LBB was sold…only a five month old blog and it has been sold…hmm.
This link building post suggests that when doing your link building you use variety. Sure you want to use your target keywords, but try not to over do it. Over using the keywords could potentially hurt your rankings.
A few ways to use Variety with Link Building:
submit to different categories when doing directory submissions
use stop words occasionally
have more than one keyword you are focusing on
use a variety of types of links such as blogs, directories, forums, paid links, etc…
get some links without keywords by using the url as the link text.
banner add links
a few premium directory submissions
deep link building
use variations of the keyword phrase by switching word order if a multi word keyword phrase is being targeted
use both capitals and lowercase
So what are your thoughts on using variety while building links to your site?
SearchCamp is a group of sessions that is totally designed for people who are into Search Marketing…so I am sure I will be checking out more than a few of those sessions.
If you are in the Philadelphia area, or even several hours away, I would suggest checking out the tentative list of session and registering if any of the sessions peak your interest.
Some of the sessions which I want to attend are “Turning Buzz Into Business for B2B”, “New Media Marketing”,”How to use social media for business AND be a real person”, and “Social Media 101″.
After PodcampPhilly, in December, Lizzie and I are planning on attending the Search Engine Strategies in Chicago. If your going to this, I look forward to meeting you in Chicago. so please let me know. If you decide to go, please click through my affiliate link on the banner below. I am sure I will blogging more about this event as the time approaches.
I just started reading the cover story on this month Wired about the Future of the Electric Car. It’s a pretty interesting article from what I have read thus far. The story is about Shai Agassi and his Audacious Plan to Put Electric Cars on the Road.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
I will be off line until Friday night, due to going on a Men’s retreat.
Nicole Price (6) our top commentator has a post about the best companies to work for, I personally was intrigued by number 10. Check out Nicole’s post, and let me know which company would interest you?
Free Directories (5) which does not have a blog that I could see, does have a webmasters forum…which as you know, is a great place to not only get some great one way links, but it is a great place to get some knowledge about marketing your site.
Wayne (5) at this writing has Lesson 9 of his Blogger.com Help Series. This one tells you how to migrate your Blogger.com blog to a unique url. I may have to get Wayne’s help to do this with our travel blog.
I have been getting the daily Beachwalks.tv updates in my email for quite sometime now. The daily videos of Roxanne and her dog Lexi, come from the beaches of Hawaii. Roxanne has a different topic everyday which may include personal development subjects to less serious topics. She also gives you a little Hawaiian Language lesson with a Hawaiian word of the day. Today’s word of the day was Manawa kpono or opportunity.
Today, Roxanne talks about taking a life challenge as her partner Shane said when they were faced with a client rescheduling issue, “What’s the Opportunity Here ?”
I like the idea of finding gold in situations that if we allow ourselves to, could potentially make us a little sad,very depressed or worse.
For example, when the SEO Company Lizzie and I were working for, had to let us both go due to loss of clients, we could have, gotten really depressed(we did get a little bummed) because we then had to find new (sorry for the curse word in advance) jobs. But instead, we looked at it as the opportunity to fully go out on our own. Within a month, we were able to network our resources and were able to more than make up for the lost income and benefit security. Today, our own SEO Company, Baldydog.com, is a growing, thriving business.
How about you,
when did you have to find the gold nugget in a potentially bad situation?
