I wanted to share with you an seo strategy that I
am using for most of my websites and my
clients websites called a link wheel. It is an
SEO strategy that is not new but has been
overlooked by many.
For those of you that don’t know seo means
search engine optimization. Essentially it’s
how you configure your site so it gets found by
the search engines.
There is basically two forms of seo! The first is
“onsite ”, this is optimizing your actual website
correctly so you can get found organically on
the search engines. The second is “off site”, this
is leveraging external forces to help you get
ranked. A link wheel is an “off site” strategy.
Link wheels involve using 5 or more unique web
2.0 sites with high page ranks and using those
sites to create a backlinks to your site.
The “spokes” of the link wheel include a link to
another unique web 2.0 site which forms the
wheel. The “hub” of the link wheel is any page
on your web site. This should be your squeeze
page, offer page, or “money site”.
The concept of this is to have a tightly focused
group of unique web 2.0 sites with high page
ranks all pointing to your site.
This will give your site authority and relevancy
for the keyword term or phrase you are
looking to rank high for in the search engine
The focus should be placed on giving authority
to one keyword phrase at a time to promote
high in the search engine result pages.
Here are some web 2.0 sites you can use to
create a link wheel:
Depending on the unique web 2.0 sites you
use to build your link wheel you should focus
on adding unique content. This could include
articles that are focused around one unique
keyword term or phrase.
Next you want to embed in your articles or
content a few backlinks. Your link should be an
anchor text of the keyword phrase you want
to rank high for in the search engines.
This link should be going back to your main hub
page in the center of the link wheel. The next
backlink should be directed to your
neighboring web 2.0 property that is part of
your link wheel.
Building the link wheel is the easy part. Now you
have to promote this son of gun! Here are
some of the things you can do to promote
your link wheel after you finish building it out.
Capture all of the RSS feeds of your web 2.o
sites. and submit them to the rss directories.
Ping your RSS feeds.
Social Bookmark each of your web 2.0
properties and the main hub
page of your link wheel.
The other factor depends on the
competitiveness of your keyword term or
phrase. Of course the less competitive your
keyword term the more likely you will show up
on the search results quicker.
