Just another SEO romance
Been around the Blog? Do things the right way!
Yes that’s right, today is officially the best day of the year for showing the love; but why should we limit this to just our partners when link building prospects can be even more exciting!
It can be an excruciatingly frustrating process ploughing through an almost endless chasm of pages on Google, to find a decent website.
You have to check the quality of a website, existing inbound & outbound links as well as many other factors to source that site to set your heart on.
Time is money, so I suppose the important message to get across to everyone is to save your list of resources, and ensure that these are categorised into industry specific sites on MS Word. Do not leave yourself too much groundwork each and every time you look for a new flame, this is a key trick of the trade!
Chat up the Blog Owners!
Don’t be shy, blogger outreach is ‘of course’ an imperative part of online marketing, so ensure that any messages communicated to the webmasters or content writers are clear, concise and not too promotional from the outset.
The last thing that the editor of a high quality site wants to do is run scared. They receive thousands of link proposals to their precious site with little relevance, so being pushy simply doesn’t work. Convince them that you’re the special one! You have to work your magic, so compliment them on the aesthetics and assess your competition; emphasise how you can really compliment both the look and feel of theirs; and then you will find yourself halfway there to second base, making that special connection.
Don’t be boring; sound human; not just like a robot trying to gain access to their property. Negotiate, and use your skills in SEO to critique any sites you are looking to link to.
Do not rush; it just
won’t get you anywhere.
Be careful when looking for sites to link to, use your skills but also ask a colleague if you are still questioning the quality of either the site body or what is pointing towards it. There is no harm in talking to your colleagues to ask for a second opinion.
Secure the date!
So enough of the talking don’t lead them on, and secure that link. Make sure that both parties are happy and take control. You’re on top of the situation and you dictate the terms. After all, there are plenty of other fish in the sea!
