    5 Best Ways To Get Free Links for Gaining Top Link Popularity & Search Engine Optimization

    Link development is one of the most important features you should focus. Google is taking link popularity as a main point while deciding where to place your website. Backlink for Google means that another website is giving you a “vote”, so the more good votes you have, the better.
    You can check your current link popularity visiting the search engines and typing the command. For example at Google you would type link:www.yourdomain.com, at Yahoo you would type linkdomain:www.yourdomain.com. You can also use one of the many tools out there, and make your job easier. I use Marketleap’s Search Engine Marketing Tools by clicking “Link Popularity Check” link (go to http://www.bestfreehomebusiness.com/GreatFreeWebTools.htm , then from section #2 ("How To Spy On Your Competitors") of “Free, Great Internet Marketing Courses” choose the link. This is a great Free Tool to find out all the links to your website & also the links to your competitors’ websites.

    I will explain some of the best ways to get new backlinks, hardest ones first, easiest at the end. I hope you find this useful.

    1) Emails – You go around visiting other websites and emailing the webmasters asking for a link trade. It can be very time consuming, but this is one of the best ways to trade links, because you are visiting the site and you know that it is related to yours. However, sometimes it is difficult finding some email to contact the webmaster, and sometimes’ good websites don’t seem to have any link page. To make this job easier, I thought it might be time to re-hash the list of web searches you can perform to find sites & pages to link to your website.
    To find the Sites, which will let you to add your website at their “Links” page, you need to use correct Keywords. Here you can find a list of keywords, which you need to use for your web searches. To get the list- Go to this site http://www.bestfreehomebusiness.com, then on the top, click “Great-Free Web Tools-Updated Daily” link. Then from the top of that page, click “Links Submission List”.

    2) Links To Directories-Everyone is looking for ways to improve their site's visibility, and one major way is by getting listed in the major business directory sites. This is a very important part of being successful on the Internet. The only way to grow your business is if people can actually find you!

    Most importantly to improve your sites ranking in the top search engines you must begin to submit your site to the well respected business directory sites on the web. This is a very time consuming process, however it is a proven fact that must be done. As you begin to see your site being added into these business directory sites, you should also start to see an improvement in your visibility in the search engines.

    As you begin to do your research on submitting your site to directories you will find that many directory sites are not human edited directories but more of a Link Farm or Link Exchange site. If you want to be successfully recognized by the top search engines this will only hurt your site rather then improve it. Be sure to pay special attention to detail when you are submitting your site to business directory sites. If a so called business directory requires a reciprocal link in order to have your site listed, then you can assume it is not a human edited directory but a Link Farm or Link Exchange program. This will not pull a lot of weight in the top search engines. The most important piece to remember is placing your link on a page with relevant content.

    As search engines are trying to give their users more relevant results they are now using stricter guidelines for giving sites a low, medium and high ranking. Some key rules to remember is to review the directory guidelines. Most directories follow the same rules however each one may have one or two rules that only apply within their own site. Before you rush into submitting your site you should sit down and review how other sites are listed in their directory. You must suggest your site to the most relevant topic and subtopic as possible. You might find that you can also suggest a sub category which your site is better be suited to be listed within.
    How to write a good directory submission
    To write a good description for a business directory site you must remember a few key rules that apply to all of the major directory sites.
    Search within the directory
    First and foremost, always do a search for your site to be sure that the URL does not already exists within the directory. From time to time you might be surprised and find that your site already appears. Volunteer editors within the directories are always adding sites within their own category and they may have stumbled across your site and added it in themselves. As this has been known to happen, it is not common.
    How are the current site descriptions written?
    Secondly, do a search using one of your sites keywords. The directory will formulate a number of results. This will allow you to review the current sites that are listed and in which categories. Giving you a general idea of where your own site should be. By reviewing what you see on the page you will get a better sense of how this particular directory wants the descriptions written. You will want to follow the general format of how the other sites listed on that page read. If you submit your information incorrectly or in a sales and marketing kind of way then you might not get accepted. Stay away from verbs that will make you sound like you are throwing a pitch rather then giving a brief and accurate review of the site and business. Keep your description between 10-20 words but do remember to include some of your very important keywords into that small description.

    To get the list of Directories (Free, Pay, International, Specialized…) to add your website, Go to this site http://www.bestfreehomebusiness.com, then on the top, click “Great-Free Web Tools-Updated Daily” link & then from the top of that page, click “Directory Submission List”.

    3) Articles – A great way for gathering non-reciprocal links. If you've spent any time online trying to promote your website or business, you must have very likely realized that one of the most effective ways to generate tons of free targeted web traffic on a long term basis is to write your own informative articles and freely distribute them to other webmasters and ezine publisher for their use. However, you need to have good knowledge of what you are going to write about. Many people use articles as a free and quick way to add content to their sites. They will post your article, which includes your URL as a credit, so if your article is popular you can get loads of new backlinks every day.

    Some of the benefits of this amazing strategy include:
    -it's totally FREE and gets links to your website distributed to a huge number of other related websites on a permanent basis...
    -no need to pay for the links...
    -no need to give a return link on your own website to other sites...

    -The presence of your links in many other websites also directly increases your Google PageRank and increases the targeted free traffic you get from search engines!

    -When people see your name and website/company in the bylines of the articles on different sites, you will naturally be thought of as an "expert" in that field...This increases your credibility and makes it more likely that your visitors will take your recommendations to them more seriously.

    To get the list of the sites to submit your articles Go to this site http://www.bestfreehomebusiness.com, then on the top’ click “Great-Free Web Tools-Updated Daily” link & then from the top-left corner of that page, click “Article Submission List”. The ones with the red colors are the Top Choices (The Best Places to submit your articles).

    4) Link Exchange – There are many good directories where you can find websites that are looking for link trades. This is good, because you don’t have to waste your time with sites that aren’t interested in trades.
    One I do recommend is www.linkmarket.net. It works like this: you submit your site, and once it is approved you get the chance to make 10 link trade requests per day (if you are only interested in trading with related websites, this amount would be enough). Once you find a site in their directory to trade links with, you add it to your cart, when you have 10 links, you “check out”, and linkmarket will email those sites saying that you are interested in trading links. If the other sites approve it, linkmarket will email you back and tell you to put up the links, and then email the other sites asking them to put your link up. It is one of the best services I have found, and I am a paying member, for 18 bucks you get the chance to make all the requests you want for one year, great if you have some kind of link trade directory or are willing to trade links with any kind of site.

    List of Link Exchange Services: (Be sure to review each of these services).
    www.linkmarket.net -They makes it easy to review the Alexa Ranking of the domain before you request a link trade.

    www.starlinker.com. They let you search their database for related sites in different ways. Reading through the general information about linking was enlightening as well.

    www.linkateer.com - Don't miss this. Truly a killer app that will be known far and wide.

    www.linkalizer.com & www.links-pal.com -offer great value (they will email their lists of thousands of link-trading webmasters.)

    www.linkmetro.com -It's nice to be able to exclude categories & add your specific stipulations for each site

    5) Forums – This is the easiest one: you post the details of your site and the type of trade you are looking for, and wait for interested people to get in touch with you.
    These are the some forums, which you can use for trading links:
