As an SEO consultant, I’m always looking for new linking strategies. In this post, I’ll share my current favorite 3 sources of high quality backlinks.
1) Newsvine: Newsvine is well known as a news site similiar to Digg. However, some people don’t realize you can submit articles to Newsvine as well. The articles can contain html links, and they’re quickly crawled and indexed by Google.
2) Buzzle: While many article submission sites have fallen out of favor with the SE’s due to SPAM, the Buzzle article directory remains high quality. It is however, harder to become an approved article contributor. Since you’re required to submit previous work, don’t count on using Buzzle as your first article submission endeavor.
3) Squidoo: Relatively new to the social scene is Squidoo. Wikipedia explains the concept behind Squidoo, “Squidoo is a network of user-generated lenses –single pages that highlights one person’s point of view, recommendations, or expertise.” A Squidoo lense is highly customizable, allowing you to add links, images, and more. If you network your lense properly, it will be crawled and indexed regularly.
Have any creative link building strategies of your own? Feel free to drop a comment.
