    In the retail sector.......

    This will apply to some industries.... but not all of them by any means.

    Retailers often buy products from wholesalers/distributors, instead of going direct to the manufacturer. They get better pricing and better service this way.

    But.... manufacturers often have an "authorized dealer" section on their sites.

    Find those that do, apply for an account to buy direct, and become an authorized dealer, requesting that your info be added to that section of their site.

    Even if you never make a direct purchase, you're now an "authorized dealer" with another good link.

    I guess i thought this one was a gimme. I have found that this does not always provide benefits as some of the pages/links are not followed. Also, the manufacturers dont usually give you the ability to select your anchor text. Most of the time, they use the company name as the anchor. Is there a way to better maximize a link like this or does this fall under "a link is a link" methodology?

    The other gem with this technique is that it helps you on the local side as your company name and address are included thus, counting as a citation.

    Sharing you real time experience, I am using linkedin for seeking writers/editors rather than potential users. we are providing local broadband / VoIP service. I Googled and take a list of local newspapers website. I figured out which is best website from SEO prospective (like PR, traffic, compete rank, URL structure, internal linking, OBL). Then I followed that company (new paper) on linkedin and found out the right person (senior editor, journalist) and send him a friend request. When I sent request I was very honest and straight forward. I clearly explained my intention. he accepted the request and also happy to publish our company write ups on the website with link. I got one live press release on their main website and one article on their child website. I have noticed significant traffic and sales improvement after that publish. Though I haven't tracked ranking movement but it helped me in PR as the story URL is now PR 5.
    so I achieved this link through linkedin.

    Previously I contacted editors though direct email but I hadn't heard back from anyone. I think it is because they might be engage on some other work or emails hence they simply ignore your emails or consider it as promotional whereas on social network like linkedin or facebook they might have free (spare) time to read your request IMO.

    Hey SO_AM,

    I think you mentioned a brilliant technique for informational based websites. Would you mind giving us some more advice on contacting webdecision-makers in the education section? I would like to know how you generally address and find these people (Dear Dr. X just doesn't cut it, imo). I am a Graduate Assistant so I know how many emails get lost or deleted.

    Thanks and have a great weekend,

    Lucian

    I agree to you not to buy links.
    When your website is the best it will be the other website owners who would want to have a link to your website.
    Choose those websites who are in to upward or downward integration to your product.

    I couldn't agree more about that. I have this fan website that I built out to test my first seo project, on my own, and I have barely done any backlinking to it yet.

    These fans are linking my website all over other fan forums, imdb forums, twitter, pinterest etc. All relevant areas to my website.

    Sometimes I wish I could just say thank you to them for saving me the trouble. lol

    • dreamingrahul agrees : Firstly, this is not link building and through comment posting you can't increase your rankings. Maximum sites have no follow attribute for your link. :)

    I know that am a little child in this field. I am doing SEO from 2 years and with this experience I also want to share my view.

    I think SEO is just like our real life work.

    I start work with On Page and content optimization because first impression is last impression.

    Then I start Off Page work with 50-100 quality directory submission for each title.

    After this I go with bookmarking and article submission.

    I use these only for increase rankings.

    But for increase traffic I prefer quality and unique article submission and also do social media with facebook, twitter, Identi, status(mother site of Identi), digg, reddit, hictu and more like this.

    Increase likes on facebook, followers on twitter and also interact with other members of site.

    Do not create fake ID and fake a/cs because for fake a/c, we have to think fake things. Always create real a/cs with real things. People love this.

    Please correct me if anything is wrong here.

    I'm trying a new method to find opportunities I can create quality links.

    1. Search with a keyword you want, such as "open rate";
    2. Record the links(especially the competitor's) who are ranked higher than yours;
    3. Search the backlinks to that competitor's page by putting "link:competitor.com" in the search box;
    4. Try to have your links displayed in the any page where your competitor's link appears.

    Another great way to get links is something I read over at SEOMOZ. Find and follow some of the big contributors for your niche.

    Create a piece of content that includes these top authorities and if it doesn't include them email that and ask them what they think before you release the content.

    After that add that they added and release the content give links to the authority personality and email/tweet them telling them the content is release and they will most likely link to the content, and add allot more traffic and links to your content.

    You can find the post over at seomoz, of course this is just summary, but read the full post over there.

    Of course Google alters and search queries is another great way to find back linking opportunities.

    SEO Newbie


    So... I have been doing SEO for a little over a week. I have a few different sites I am working on.
    I am trying to get some solid links to company's site that focuses on residential, commerical, and long-distance moving services.
    Sounds simple enough?
    Well, it has been a little bit of a struggle. Although, I came accross a website- freewebsubmission.com
    It lists numerous search engines/directories that you can submit to.
    Anyone know if this is the right starting point?

    No, it is not a good start.

    If you are looking for a good start, reach out to local realtors with independent websites.
