Why You Need Premium Back Links

This is a re-post of an old post that I think is so important that I wanted to get it back to the top of my blog:

One of the core elements to better SEO is building back links. In fact, I think the only 3 things you really need to do is have the "Best Keywords", the "Best Content" and the "Best Back Links".

Notice that I did not say the most keywords, the most content, and the most back links. Although, this is debatable, quality should most always win out over quantity.

That's why I want to remind you about building the best performing link wheels using RSS feeds. RSS feeds can be targeted just like keywords and content. This will result in better back links and targeted traffic.

If that makes some sense to you, then be sure to visit RSS Mage and LinkWheel Sage for the low down at www.rssmage.net,

Why You Need "Post + Ping" for Blogging

This is a "re-post: of literally one of the very first articles I ever wrote and posted to Ezine Articles many years ago. This is still good advice and recommended for anyone interested in learning how to blog. The original articled is posted below...

It does not matter if you are blogging as a pastime or blogging related to marketing a business online, you always need to remember to "ping" your blog updates on a regular basis. This is important because not all blogging platforms have automated pinging services.
If you are new to the concept of blogging, pinging is even more important. Many people start blogs scratching their heads and wondering why they never get any traffic to their blog. Just like commercial websites,blogs now have to be marketed through SEO optimization, press releases, social networking, directory submissions, word of mouth, and anything else that you can think of to create traffic.
One thing that works in favor of blogging is that weblog posts are considered timely and unique content. It is for this reason they are indexed quicker, bookmarked, and passed around to others with similar interests.
Blogging is also an easy way to get your feet wet in having an online presence, since you do not have to purchase domain names and hosting services. It also is a good exercise to learning some of the basics, maybe even a little HTML, although it is not necessary. There is an incredible amount of free tools and software available to help you get started.
Blogging is an excellent way to build traffic in an organic way to promote websites, as well. Since blogs are an informal way of communicating, they also are a way to build relationships and a good way to get and stay popular with your network. In effect, a ping for your weblogs is like a personal note or telephone call, and just a way of saying, "Hear I am and this is what's new in my corner of the world".
You also want to make sure that you stay on topic with the theme of your blog, and writing posts that are relevant. You will want to make frequent posts to build content for your blog, probably no less than a few times a week and make sure that you "ping" the update.
The way you build and maintain the information resources on your blog are also important to your efforts and success. You can join online forums, or do a search for help in building and maintaining your site with tips from other bloggers.
Social Bookmarking is also a popular way to network with other individuals that may be interested in your blog updates. You probably are aware of such services as furl.net. technorati.com, and del.icio.us.
A free service that allows you to automate your bookmarking is onlywire.com. The onlywire website allows you to create an account, and then insert your username and passwords for all the accounts you have at various bookmarking sites and "ping" these sites all at once.
Always make a point to "ping" as you "blog".

The Idea Behind RSS Linkswheels

Depending on the online business model, I have found many instances where it is possible to dominate organic search engine ranking by creating a few simple micro-blogs and connecting them together in a linkwheel using RSS feeds. This blog is an example of that process. One reason this still works is that the vast majority of the competition (new people entering online marketing) are taught to just mindlessly build thousands of links from social bookmarks, blog comments, and forums.
Building link wheels takes less time, and you do the work only once in most cases. Another advantage of link-wheels is that it's difficult for links from these sites to be characterized as spam. This is considered off-site SEO and it would be very hard for search engines to discriminate or downgrade links from social media websites and Web 2.0 sites. Even if things change dramatically in the future, the loss of these one-way links will not cause your main website, money sites, or target sites to be de-indexed.
So, an RSS link-wheel can be defined as simply building 5 to 6 "on topic" micro-blogs, using selective keyword-rich anchor text links as one-way links back to your main target site, and a one-way link connecting from each mini-site in a linear scheme.
[A > B > C > D > E > F > (+/- A)]
The operative phrase here is "one-way links". This graphic above illustrates the possibility of the last link looping back to the first website in the link scheme. This is what is called a "closed" link- wheel. The link wheels we will build will not be closed. Our linkwheels are also called "horseshoe" or "open" link wheels, since the last link is not completed to make a full loop. The reason for this will be discussed in future posts.
Note: Throughout this blog I will use "link wheel", link-wheel", and "linkwheel" interchangeably. I do not know if one is preferable over the others. I kind of like the way Linkwheel looks myself.

Combining RSS Feeds and Linkwheels

I just published a new article about this techniques at EzineArticles. You can read it by following this link.

How to Create Power Bookmarks

I happen to do this every few days, so I thought it was worthy of a post. This comes under the category of tips and tricks, I would suppose. The term "power bookmark" just popped into my head as a title for this post. It probably is not a searchable term with regard to this technique. Nevertheless, I use this method to get added weight for my bookmarks in the search engines. My belief is that it also makes the bookmarked links more valuable as backlinks.

This method is pretty simple, and all that is involved is bookmarking you bookmarks. You can also include any other links that show up on the first 3-5 pages of the SERPs. The way I like to do this is to search on my domain name, the title of the website, and then the subheads first. Don't worry, this goes pretty quick. Then is is just a matter of finding links that lead back to your web pages and bookmark these a few times.

I cycle through my keyword list and do the same thing, starting with the top keywords, keyword phrases, and working my way though the long-tail keywords. I then do searches on these to see where my pages, or links to my pages show up in the search results. Depending on the niche and what you are marketing, you can turn that process around and go for the low-hanging fruit first. If you are in a niche without a lot of competition, you can rank fairly quickly by creating these extra bookmarks. I use this with LinkWheel Sage and RSS Mage.

What you will find in your search results is that other people will have bookmarked your posts and pages. There also will be links like this that lead back to your link wheel properties. This method is very effective if you are doing article marketing and publishing lots of content that is getting re-published on other websites and blogs. Just bookmark those links, too.

This is somewhat of a mindless pastime, and something you can do when you don't want to be too mentally challenged, or when you have some extra time. If you don't have time, this is something that you could easily pay someone to do every once in a while. This is a perfect job for older children and high school kids.

Elements of a Simple Link Wheel Site

In this post we are going to point out some of the elements I think are necessary for a simple RSS Link Wheel Site. Most of the micro-blogging platforms will accommodate all these elements, and the same is true for most of the social media sites you can use.

Basically, you want to to have a home page (front page) that you will write a few hundred words of unique content. I don't like content spinners, and honestly believe that if you know your subject matter that it's easier to write a few hundred words that will be unique copy in as little as 5-10 minutes.

We can use this Blogger blog here at How To Build RSS Link Wheels as an example. This is the second leg of a link wheel I have built to demo this project. If you follow the top navigation bar you can see that I have created 3-4 additional pages. These can be pages that link to the previous leg in this link wheel (in this case my EzineArticles profile is the first leg in this link wheel), a page that links to the RSS Mage target website, and then you can have a link to a video page (LinkWheel Sage Youtube Video), and then maybe a page for an RSS News Feed.

You can create posts using RSS news feeds, or a free service like Unique Article Wizard. You do not have to do this with each link wheel property, but the more content you have updating your site, the better the link wheel will work at creating back links. You can also add RSS feeds as widgets on most of these sites by embedding these feeds in the page layout or the side bars. That is pretty much it...and you really only have to do it once fro each site.

Note: Be sure to keep your links going in one direction, and also create internal links from page-to-page within a given link wheel property. Just be sure not to have any reciprocal links between two sites within the link wheel. You also want to use different keyword phrases for anchor text links, and you do not want all of your links to the target website going to the main domain url. Point some links to internal pages on the target website, and occasionally you can sprinkle your posts with a few outbound links to related websites. Mix things up and make it look natural. Look around this site and you should get some good ideas.

Getting Websites and Blogs Indexed Quickly

Most people think that getting your sites indexed is a waiting game, but it does not have to be. There are a few methods to get your websites and blogs indexed quickly in search engines. I only am concerned about getting indexed in Google. Google is the leader by far, and the other search engines will play follow the leader. I can get new sites indexed in a matter of hours.

Getting you sites "indexed" means getting your pages and links counted. This is probably the easiest way to think about indexing, and you should understand by now that this means creating some quick links back to your website and internal pages. You can create a few back links every time you publish a page or post. Read about the standard techniques that follow, and then we will look at some fast track tips.

Social Bookmarking
Contrary to popular belief, you only need a few social bookmark links when you get started. Just like we talk about in all these posts, you don't want to spam the search engines and you also don't want to build links too fast. In this case 6-10 at a time is plenty. Use site like Digg, Mixx, and Propeller.

Social Media Profiles
We have discussed this previously. Just create some accounts specific to your website niche with the big social media sites like Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, etc. These sites get crawled and indexed by Google on an hourly basis, and yes, these links do get indexed quickly.

Forum and Blog Comments
This is a really simple technique. Just find some the most popular blogs and forums related to your niche and leave comments with a link back to your website or post. Make sure these are DoFollow links.

RSS Feed Directory Submissions
RSS feed directories are near and dear to our mission, since one of the biggest reasons for this blog involves how to use RSS feeds. Yo can submit your feeds to hundreds of directories. In later posts we will talk about automated submission tools. Go to this RSS Directory Link List to get started.

Now, here are a couple of quick indexing tips that have always worked fro me. One is to first search (and find) a phrase in quotes that has no search engine results. The crazier, the better. Something like "blue monks find solace in Peru"

When you find a phrase with "no results", go write a post with that in you headline and as an anchor text link in a short post on your blog or website, then bookmark the page. Google will now be looking for this phrase to index. Once your site is indexed you can edit the post to something more sensible.

Another trick is to use the name of your website as anchor in a post on an established blog with good traffic. This of course will have a link leading back to your domain url. As that site gets crawled for new content your link will be picked up and indexed.

My last favorite way to get quick links is to do a search for my new site domain on some of the popular statistical sites like statbrain.com, websiteoutlook.com, aboutus.org, and statsaholic.com. These searches will automatically create links back to your new site and these in turn get picked up by the search engines.
