Third Party Free Site Link Building

 

Tired of Making Chump Change Online?

backlink building techniquesOne of the older and still effective methods used in building backlinks to a central site is to build a network of sites hosted off free sites and free blog networks.  The effectiveness of this method revolves around the following:

  • Keyword/subkeyword structure / keyword choice
  • Quality original content that is actually useful
  • Semi-targeted link building
  • Quality focus on actual readers not just Googlebot/SE Spiders

Creating Network link building support sites/pages

Step #1:  Find your support keywords and Set up the sites

Get a raw dump of your target niche keywords
Segregate your target keywords from your “support” keywords
Manually create a site from each of the free blog/free page sites below
Customize each site (as much as allowed by the sites/networks).  Each site must look different from the others in your network
Each site must target a separate “support” keyword
The site must not have an SEO “spammy” name of KEYWORD | KEYWORD or just “KEYWORD”.  It should be a real name like KEYWORD journal or “My KEYWORD Journal”

Step #2:  Create Quality Original Content for your backlink site network

List out your sites and the subkeywords that each site focuses on.  This listing can roughly look like this:
Site URL – Site Name (with keyword) – subkeyword 1 / subkeyword 2 / subkeyword 3  / etc.  Brainstorm and write actual useful and informative blog entries based on your keywords.  If you’re running out of ideas, try entering your keywords here and get pages upon pages of questions.  Take out duplicate questions.  Create outlines for each question.  The article should then “write itself.”  If you’re still stumped or don’t have the time to create useful, high quality, original content, try using bulk content copywriting services at mere pennies per word.

Avoid “spam” saturation.  For every entry that has the keyword in the title, mix things up with related articles that don’t have keywords in the title.  The blogs/pages must have a “natural” mix of content.

Our most important tip: Write these sites like you would for a visitor of your main site.  This content must be REAL.  They must be actually useful/entertaining to human readers.  They can’t just be rethreaded/rehashed/software-spun garbage.  If you stuff these sites with garbage, search engines will probably treat them the same way.

Fatal mistake: Do NOT put links to your target site or adsense/affiliate links just yet.  There will be plenty of time for that later.  Don’t get greedy at this stage and screw up your chances with the next step.

Step #3:  Create backlinks by networking with other free site/free blog network members

Categorize your support site/blog and find members of the free site/free blog network member you’re on and ask them for blogroll link exchanges.  Find people that are in the same category as you.  If you used original and useful content, your chances of establishing solid relationships increases.  Make sure your sites are “clean”–no ads, no spam content.  The more credible your content is, the higher the likelihood you’ll get backlinks from other blogs in your network.

No straight link exchange:  If A is your site and B is another person’s site, do not arrange an A < > B link exchange.  What this means is that site A links to B and B links to A.  Search engines won’t give this link exchange much weight (unless you do one crucial thing but we’ll discuss that in a future post).

Use 3 way link exchanges instead.  Since you have quite a few pages/blogs set up on many free blog/site networks, arrange linking among these properties.  So instead of A < > B, the structure should be: A > B > C.  You own A and C.  The partner owns B.  You link to B from A and he/she links to C.  Map out your link relationships.  Make sure to avoid any < >.

Step #4:  Age your network a bit before linking to your central site

Age your network.  After you build them in a ‘natural’ manner–ie., staggered creation dates, random pattern of creation, and link building/networking frequency.  After a few months, slowly–repeat–slowly start linking them using subkeywords to your main site.

    Actually, this is a really good strategy. I’ve created accounts on some of these blog networks for link building purposes, but I’ve got to admit that it wasn’t with the users in mind. I guess it’s time to write some quality content… :)
