Everyone knows that the more your website is popular, the higher you would rank in the search engines. Internet marketers were in constant search of other `similar` blogs/websites relative to theirs so that they can swap links and do the same in their website in return. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 3: Link Exchanges are everywhere... I have received about 20 emails of offers from people wanting to do link exchanges. For some reason I did not think it was the best idea, I know for a fact how hard I work to earn my traffic and to boost my subscribers with awesome content, yet I am not sure my so called `partner` would do the same in return. I do believe he/she`ll place a link of my website on theirs, but I do not think it`ll get me more traffic as much as I`ll provide their website. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 4: Better Proven Technique for success; Don`t do the traditional link exchange method, it is not affective as it ought to be. What you can do is this: Write an informative article around a particular topic within your niche. Publish it in your own website. Get the link of `your website` bookmarked. Make sure your article is already indexed by the search engines first before you follow to step 5. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 5: 6) Search for other blog owners within your niche and contact them. 7) Offer them your article to be published on their website for F.R.E.E in exchange of a link linking back to the article on your website. 8) Make sure you spice up the title, make it more appealing for example: “5 Proven-to-Work Tips to Get Subscribers to Open Your Email!”. Anything that would interest the owner of a website to the extent that they`d want to publish your article and they are more likely to ask for more. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 6: You Should know; You must be willing to get one-way links linking [otherwise known as backlinks ] to your website other than simple link exchanges. The search engines won`t give you credit for link exchanges anymore, they`re programmed to detect websites with mere content and having a ton of links that go back and forth from other websites. This is useless. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 7: You want other websites to link to your articles, products, reports and official website and not having you to do anything in return other than focusing on providing more valuable content for them to refer to in the future. See what I mean? http://SarahAl.com/Slide 8: People are looking for content, something valuable, useful information and breaking news. You give them that and they`d be more than willing to link to your site and recommending it to others. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 9: Rich Keywords = Cluttered Websites When you find the right keywords to target and the correct combination of relative keywords for maximum exposure, you go ahead and write your first article. Hoping to rank high due to the set of keywords you desperately tried to include. Your page will be packed with the keywords with no value but the affiliate link at the end of the article. This is pretty common. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 10: So, what are you missing? You are thinking of the keywords and not focusing on your content which is what you should do. Without valuable content your article won`t rank and no one would want to link to your article full of the right keywords but no valued content whatsoever. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 11: The search engines would automatically detect your pages with what they call the `spiders` that will sense the overall dense of the keywords you included and will either rate your site poorly, or worse, de-index your website. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 12: Duplicate Content – Bad, Bad Idea It is fine to take a few ideas from other articles available online or offline, but it is not okay to duplicate the exact content. Do not even consider rewriting an article unless you are 100% sure that it won`t look nor sound the same apart from the extract itself. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 13: My friend, shortcuts won`t get you anywhere, you have to work hard to expect results. You should abide by the rules and you`ll be on your way to success. SEO is not to be messed with. Sure every once in a while, you`d rewrite an article or two but do not go overboard with it. Trust me it will be rewarding. http://SarahAl.com/Slide 14: Here is a link to the original article: http://sarahal.com/online-marketing/avoid-useless-time-consuming-seo-techniques-that-do-not-work SEO techniques are endless and I have recently come to know some of the most effective SEO techniques that I personally use on a daily basis.
