Links are the lifeblood of your blog, are you struggling to get links?
What are links
Links are websites, mostly in the same niche (line of interest), that links together.
If you don't have links from your website to another, or from another website to yours, your ranking in the search engines is lower than it would be if you were linked to other bloggers.
You get sites where you can buy links, but don't even go there......before you know it, you will be penalized and you will loose your site - it will be blocked by Google. Besides, the links you get from these Link buying sites are not even connected with the same interests as your blog is.
Rather work on building links legally and safely.
How to get links legally
The most fun way is to run blog parties. (blog hops or blog competitions)
What you do is you invite all the people in you subscriber list to join in writing posts on their blogs and then they link it back to your site.
If you don't have many subscribers yet, don't worry, you can do link ups in any of the following methods:
- Through sending an email invitation
- through posting on your blog
- through facebook
- through twitter
Like the following link-up competition on doing make-up in 15 minutes or less.
Have a make-up blog? Go ahead - write your post on your site and after you are finished, click on the add your link button.
You will be asked to fill in the url of your post, so remember to copy it and paste it in the right line. - Need help, please ask.
