Here’s what usually happens: a web site owner gets a site designed. It’s uploaded to a webhost. Then it dawns on him that he’s going to have to promote it. It won’t get traffic by itself. Unless it offers something people truly crave. Some item that can sell itself by word of mouth alone.

For other sites, there’s SEO : Search Engine Optimisation .

SEO can also include Search Engine Marketing. An SEO consultant is expected to offer help with Search Engine Marketing (SEM) and Social Media marketing. It all boils down to getting more clients to the site.

You start off with a site that targets a niche. Then you optimise that site with pages focussing on a range of search terms. So far, so good. Then you need to climb up to the first page of search engine results pages.

One option you come across is backlinks. You get the idea that such links should contain keywords. Keywords are search terms people enter into search engines . The idea is that you will be seen by search engines as an authority for the product you’re marketing.

Now, lots of folks, for the past decade or more, have arrived at the same necessity: they want backlinks. Lots of them. From authority websites. Problem is, everyone who has a popular website knows this. They know links have a monetary value. They know that linking to relevant, good quality sites is a smart idea. They know that linking to cr–py sites is a bad one.

So how can you get them to link to you?

Well, for starters, if you do it yourself, it’s extremely time consuming. I recently did that at the request of a client. It was terrible. You see, not every site you try to get a link on will do as you ask. They will reject your requests. They will ignore your submissions. They will even ban you if you get cheeky.

So, for every 100 sites you submit to, you’ll be doing OK if you get 10 links. Eventually. Did I mention it can take 1 week to 6 months for links to be approved? Yikes!

With that in mind, here are some low cost ways to get a wodge of half-decent links and bump up your site ‘visibility’. Now, you will find some also-rans saying that you shouldn’t get too many backlinks too quickly. These are people who 1. Haven’t actually tested that assumption themselves or 2. Have done something else to their site, besides getting backlinks too fast, and incurred a penalty, for that other trick.

There is one way, I think, that getting backlinks too fast can hurt your site and you know what, I’m not going to tell you it.

Why?

Because it pleases me that my competitors harm themselves by believing myths or doing that one thing that will draw Google’s ire. I get very cheesed off reading remarks from people who are passing on rumour, as fact, in forums.

There are too many ninnies learning the newest wheeze in SEO and spamming the heck out of it. I mean doing really _dumb_ things. Then the admins of the targetted sites get wise to this trick and it becomes useless. Or they just delete their CMS’ database.

Anyhow, here are some simple methods of getting ‘filler’ backlinks to your site:

1. Web directories; 2. Article directories;3. Social bookmark sites;4. Blog comments; 5. Your one clever source hardly anyone else knows.

Items 1 – 4 you can get a clever chappie like me to outsource for you. It’s no. 5 that puts the butter on your bread and the sugar in your tea.
