3 Effective Link Building Tactics for 2008

by Justin Palmer - December 31st, 2007

Obtaining good quality backlinks without paying for them is becoming increasingly difficult. In this short post, I thought I’d share 3 link building tactics that have been working for me lately.

  1. Hubpages: Hubpages is a community of articles, or “hubs” on various topics. Their unique system discourages spammers by slapping no-follow tags on outgoing links if your “hubscore” falls below 75. You can increase your hubscore by participating in forums, commenting on hubs, and most importantly, submitting high quality, completely original articles. It takes some work to maintain your hubscore, but the high quality links are worth the effort. I’ve seen some of my hubs picked up by Google in less than 2 hours.
  2. Work.com: Work.com specializes in business related guides and tutorials. As long your guides are high quality and pass the approval process, they can contain as many followed links as you’d like. In addition, I’ve received decent traffic from the guides I’ve submitted so far.
  3. Ebay Blogs: Who doesn’t want a link from ebay.com? Ebay blogs are a great way to showcase your ebay products, or just provide useful content to the ebay community. Links posted within your blog are followed, so the potential SEO benefit is huge. My first ebay post was indexed in less than a day.

Discovered any good link building methods lately? If you don’t mind sharing them, leave a comment.

I hope everyone has a happy new year.

    Thanx for the Work.com tip! The embedded links are no non-follows. Hubpages: You’re right, it is tough to keep your Hubscore above 75. Ebay Blogs: Not sure about the benefit of this one, as you don’t get a direct link. Bit pointless..

    Anyway, keep it up!
