Descriptive anchor text for internal linking
Anchor text on 80% of your keywords will definitely get you penalized nowadays.

20-30% if possible.
Best practice is to not exceed 100k page size and reducing unnecessary scripts and meta tags
Broken Link building
Linking Wheel. web2.0
Blog Directories – something like yellow pages but each entry was a link back to a website
Site samples: http://pointblankseo.com/dofollow-blogs-list
Forum Signatures – Many people where commenting on forums for the sole purpose of getting
a link back to their website (they included the links in their signature)
Comment link – The same concept as forum signatures where you comment on some other
website or blog in order to get a link back. Even worse, instead of using your real name you
could use keywords so instead of writing ‘comment by Alex Chris’, you wrote ‘comment by
How to lose weight’ or anything similar.
Article Directories – By publishing your articles on an article directory you could get a link (or
2) back to your website. Some article directories accepted only unique content while other
directories accepted anything from spin articles to already published articles.
Shared Content Directories – Websites like hubpages and infobarrel allowed you to publish
content and in return you could add a couple of links pointing to your websites.
Link exchange schemes – Instead of trying to publish content you could get in touch with other
webmasters and exchange links. In other words I could link your website from mine and you
could do the same. In some cases you could even do more complicated exchanges by doing a 3-
way link, in other words I link to your website from my website but you link to my website from
a different website.
Guest Blog post - Guest posting can be a valid way to get links back to your website provided
that you don’t do it just for links and that you don’t overdo it. You can read these 2 articles to get
a complete picture as to when to accept guest posts on your blog and when to guest post on
keyword “submit a guest post”
keyword “guest post”
keyword “guest post by”
keyword “accepting guest posts”
keyword “guest post guidelines”
Social media is part of ‘off-site SEO’ and if you think about it, it’s also a form of link building. It
should be noted that almost all of the links you get from social media sites are “nofollow” but
this does not mean that they do not have any value.
- Facebook, twitter , YouTube etc.
Social bookmarking is not as popular as it used to be in the past but it is still a good way to get
traffic to your website. Depending on your niche you can find web sites like reddit.com,
digg.com, stumbleupon.com, scoop.it and delicious.com (to name a few) to promote your
- Digg, Stumbleupon, Delicous, Reddit
Link Research (GOOGLE search box)
Site:.com , .net, .info, .gov .com.au, .au etc.
Filter all extension for domain
(“”) specific results
Example : site:.gov “cctv camera for schools”
also you can simply type the domain url site (e.i site:domain.com, domain.info,
inurl:forum + inurl:showthread + "keyword"
inurl:forum + inurl:category "keyword"
site:istorya.net + "t-shirt printing" -"digital press"
Inurl = keywords within the URL
Intitle = keywords within the Title
Example combo: site:.com intitle:School Camera inurl:cctv camera installations
after your 10-30 quality backlinks, try to get 3-4 edu and 3-4 gov comments,
and 50-100 facebook shares, likes, +1, pins and twitter share’s to your article,
You must make him “viral” in the eys of the search engines. You’ll have your No1
place after 1-2 weeks!
Check browser and screen resolution compatibility. Your site needs to render
correctly in every web browser (Chrome, IE, Safari, etc.) and screen resolution
(1366×768, 1024×768, 800×600, etc.).
