Linking is one of the cornerstones of building a good site, but it doesn’t always work. There is no magic formula that automatically makes all links work magic. They have to be targeted and relevant. Even then, there can still be problems. When linking fails, you need to take a good hard look at your strategy to figure out the why.
Link building is like most anything else in life – you need to follow through and be dedicated. If you had great ideas but simply didn’t follow them far enough to see results, your link building can fail. Doing half a job is the same as doing no job when it comes to results. As Yoda would say, “There is no try, only do.”
You don’t have to follow the best practices of linking, but that choice does come with consequences. Not using linking best practices can sink you from the start. Knowing what NOT TO do is as important as knowing what TO do. If you choose to get involved with questionable, unproved or practices you outright know are shady, you have to be willing to pay the price.
Diversity in link
ing is important too. Only using one method to build links will sink you too. You have to approach linking with an open mind, and use all resources available to you. Building links too fast can ding you if Google thinks the links may not be coming from a valid source. using mass submission to article sites just for links can do this to you – Google will simply stop counting if they realize you are after automated links.
No one wants to read gibberish, so if you don’t know how to write, hire someone who can produce great valuable content for you. Sure it costs money, but if you don’t, there is no point in having a site that no one can even use. If you lack creativity, you’ll be boring which is as bad as having bad writing. Worse in fact – I would rather click on a link that said ‘Se monky fal off Byke into poole” than “Watch a video about a monkey here”
Sometimes you have to swallow your pride. There is no shame in asking for help if you get in over your head, just make sure you ask for help from a reputable source. So called gurus will charge you for junk advice! Pay attention, and get help to fix your linking problems before you miss out on great opportunities. A little support can go a long way! Use all the resources available to you and you should do fine.
