More ways to soup up your linking

Here are some advanced link building strategies:

Internal Linking: By linking between pages within your website, it not only helps search engine spiders see your entire website; it also helps your site build relevance in the eyes of both human readers and search engines. When you add internal links, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Links should incorporate the keywords/phrases you’re optimizing for.
  • Placing links inline with your content helps increase relevancy.
  • Your site should include a site map, and each page should link to your site map.
  • For graphical navigation, such as buttons, ALT tags help search engines see them.

Interaction:  One reason why the Internet is so powerful is because it lets people interact in a virtual space. Interacting with fellow Web users means that you can meet them in the online communities where they spend time. Adding a blog to your site, adding links to blogs or other sites related to your site is a way to interact with like-minded individuals and potential customers. For example, if you’re selling antique car parts, linking to car clubs’ sites or adding a blog that features a restoration project can get users to interact with other hobbyists who are interested in buying your parts.

Image Links: If your site has images to partners, vendors, or clients, making the images link to their sites is a way to get links, as well as to establish credibility, particularly if these are well-known names.

Keep in mind that these tools are best used as guidelines, not absolutes, to help you come up with ideas or get a rough idea of how your linking efforts are going.
