Links Mean Votes

Winning The Popularity Contest

Link Exchange

Reciprocal link exchanges will benefit your site, (regardless of what other SEO's may tell you - in regard to Google's Jagger update) as long as the sites you are linking to have a decent ranking, a decent ranking is anything over 4/10. Make sure your site has a resources page that you can dedicate to adding quality links, in return for them adding your site to their resource page.

Naturally it is better to have all your links pointing to sites of relevance, but don't ignore non-industry-related sites, as long as they have a really good ranking it will be worthwhile having them listed. Although, for your users benefit, try and keep it as relevant as possible.

Ensure that their resource page has a ranking of at least 4/10, is also good if their index page has a similar ranking as it is all spider'd. Avoid putting banners on other sites; although this is a good advertising method, it is not as beneficial as a text link. Text links will have keywords in it to help Google recognise the quality of the link. Be very careful here not to have keyword laden links, Google will punish links built to manipulate the ranking. Use your company name, great if it has one of your keywords in the name.

One Way links

Here is the REAL benefit to your site. Aside from quality content, this is the next thing that will ensure your site of a high listing within Google. One Way links are links from other sites which link to you, but you do not link back to them. Straight forward enough. However, be sure they are REAL one-way links. Some companies offer one way links, but then you find that all those links actually come from one IP address. This is disastruous. Make sure that each link comes from seperate IP addresses, you can check the IP address of any link here.

It can be difficult to get such links. People usually link to a site if they offer something valueable, such as an interesting article or a free tool. Offering such things will make sure you can increase your one way links free of charge. To help you get started, I recently finished an article entitled, Quality Link Building for 2014.

Buying & Selling Text Links

Buying text links is the worst thing you can do, you are almost certain to get penalised by Google at some stage. Simply DO NOT BUY LINKS - EVER! Can't stress the point enough, if you are asked to pay any sort of fee for any type of link, then politely decline and walk away safe in the knowledge that your site is protected.

Negative SEO, whereby someone else buys links into your site so that Google penalize you, does happen - but it is rare and quite easy to spot. Every month, go to your Google Webmaster Tools account and download the 'latest' links into your site, then go through them and look out for links with poor anchor text or on link pages or paid directories. If you find them then you need to reach out and remove them. You can find out more about reconsideration requests here.
