Auto-Pilot Link Building Strategy for Content-Sites
OK, this is what I consider a very effective method to get
people to link to you without you having to ask them to do
so. The best part is that, people will link to you for your
most targeted keyword.
I happen to discover this method after seeing the results
that I get on one of my website. I don't have any particular
reason for doing it that way on my website, but it seems to
work like magic.
Sometimes, I search for people who are linking to me by
looking at my referrers. You can also do that by checking
your website statistics.
Sometimes, I do a link popularity check at MarketLeap.com.
And to my surprise, I realized that when I visited those
websites, they are linking to me using my most targeted
That is how people are linking to me. And the result, I am
ranked number 1 against 2 million websites on Yahoo and MSN.
And this is for a keyword that has about 2000 searches per
But just how do you go about doing this?
You are about to know the little-known-secret-steps to
getting more link partners with your most targeted keyword.
But before I go into that, I just would like to make some
statements about this method.
Some people may like this method and some might not. There
are pros and cons. I don't really know if this will suit
well for business or corporate websites. All these while, I
have only used them for content-sites promoting affiliate
programs and Adsense, which is I think is most suitable.
If you are thinking about building a passive income with
Adsense and affiliate programs, then you should read this.
First, you should do a keyword analysis. You can use
WordTracker or Overture Keyword Selector Tool.
After having your list of keywords, you can compare that to
the number of competitions that you against with on Google.
By comparing the numbers, you know which is easier to
optimize for. And you can also try checking the popular
keywords at Search Guild Search Term Difficult Checker.
Another tool that you can use is NicheBot.com.
Don't get trapped into the analysis-paralysis zone. Just
follow the indicators and look for the most popular and the
easiest keyword that you can rank for.
I know that you want to rank for more than one keyword, but
just follow me on this and select one keyword that has high
in traffic and easy to optimize for.
Now, here's the secret number one. You are going to name
your website with that keyword. If your best keyword is
"Growing Orchids", then that's is going to be your website's
Here's secret number two. Get a domain that has that keyword
in it. If you can't get "growingorchids.com" or "growing-
orchids.com", you can try the dot-net (.net). And if you
still can't get the dot-net, you can add some numbers in
front of the keyword like "1-growing-orhids.com". You should
be able to get either one of those.
Here's secret number three. In every page of you website,
use the keyword in your . For your main page, you
should have something like this.
Growing Orchids - Definitive Guide To Orchid Growing
And on other pages, you can have something like this.
Growing Orchids - Dendrium Orchids
Growing Orchids - Ochid Diseases
Growing Orchids - Watering Ochids
Growing Orchids - Lighting for Orchids
The examples above is where you combine the first keyword
with another keyword that you are targeting specifically
for that page.
Secret number four is optional. Sometimes it still works
without the next step. But implementing secret number four
will put your website on steroid in your link building
Here's secret number four. You should install a reciprocal
link script. This is a script where people can submit their
link to you after linking to your website. The link will
take care of checking the link from the other person's
website and putting a link back to your new link partner.
And now, this is secret number five. You should have a link
that says "Add URL" or "Add Link" to your link script. There
times when people will search the web for something like this.
growing orchids "add link"
growing orchids "add url"
These people are looking for your website. By putting the
link "Add Link" or "Add URL", you are telling the search
engine that you have a link page. This way, link partners
can find you more easily.
Of course, you can always do this manually. But that will
beats the purpose of trying to make everything autopilot.
And once in a while, you can check and see where you website
links to. If you want to remove any, just do so.
Now, what is the result of all these? Well, by naming your
website with the targeted keyword and having a domain name
using that keyword, link partners have no options but to
link to your website using that keyword.
And since the keyword is your website's name, there's
nothing wrong with having the name of your website on all
Some people might just link to you without you even asking.
And most of the times, they would link to you using the
text you use in the . When that happens, you are
still linked with your most targeted keyword.
If you rank well later in the search engines, you can aslo
expect to get links from websites built using Traffic
Equalizer or Traffic Hurricane.
No matter which page they link to, they will always link to
you using your most targeted keyword - "Growing Orchids".
And at the same time, you are still targeting your secondary
keywords like "orchid diseases", "orchid care" or "orchid
greenhouse" because you have that in the as well.
I have been using this method and it works pretty well for
me. I am sure people will have their opinion on this whether
this is good or this is bad. Some people don't like it not
having control over who links to them. But I guess, it boils
down to you. It's your choice.
For me, this is great for content-sites working with Adsense
and affiliate progams. This is the method that I use on my
computer case website, airsoft website and my paintball
You can give this a try and see how thing goes.
