I handle the SEO of few companies based in France (websites are all written in French). I normally
start with the on-page of the website and then start with business directory submission, local listing,
Web 2.0 profile submission, blog commenting (in English blogs), social bookmarking, CSS gallery
submission and submitting articles in storify.com (articles are in English & I give hyperlinks
to the french words written in the brackets besides its English word). Also, storify.com will soon be
shutting down as well.

Can anyone please suggest on how the link building can be improved here? As the target audience
speaks French, the above methods are not very useful. But the options available like guest posting,
using tools like scoop.it can't be done because of the language.

Please guide.

Thanks in advance!!
