      The 5 Basic Kinds of Link Building

      Send an email (or call) requesting a link

      Ordered by Google’s PageRank.

    • Social Media Optimisation
      Leveraging Social Media
      to Create Buzz and Links
    • Social Media Value
      PR Channel, much like TV and radio
      People use social sites to consume content
      Provide useful content and spread your message
      Customer service channel
      Market Testing / Feedback
      Oh, and links … 
    • Value of Social Links
      Most do not pass PageRank
      However, PageRank is not “all”
      Regular social media placements could be a trust signal
      Feeds “query deserves freshness”
      However, fades with age
      The true SEO value is in the signal to influential humans that see you there
      And the links that they give you!
    • Wikipedia
      If you can, obtain a profile page on Wikipedia
      Links to your site do not pass link juice
      Builds credibility with media and others
      Don’t go add it yourself!
      Against Wikipedia guidelines
      Become a contributor, add lots of value, make friends, establish credibility, then suggest it
      Must meet notability test
      Suggest relevant category tags
      Monitor article changes
    • Digg / Social News
      An article that makes the Digg home page:
      Can get tens of thousands of visitors
      Can get hundreds, or thousands of links
      Getting there is the hard part
      Create great content
      Use Digg to research other articles on your topic area that have made it
      Target the audience (13 to 28 year old males)
      Befriend or hire a top Digger
    • Digg Guidelines
      Strip away commercial links while promoting on Digg
      Friend popular Diggers. Better yet, get a popular Digger to submit your story.
      Craft a killer title using this formula from Muhammad Saleem: number + adjective + key phrase
      E.g. “13 Most Chilling Haunted Hotels” or “16 Incredibly Unconventional Hotel Rooms”
    • StumbleUpon
      Build relationships / subscribers
      Use “Send to” function in toolbar
      Subscribers will view your stuff
      Always get some traffic
      If it becomes popular … Traffic will be immense 
    • ...and if you need the proof
      Happy days for these pages 
    • YouTube
      Post great videos on YouTube
      The videos on YouTube get most of the links
      Consider developing additional videos that you show on your own site
      Consider creating a microsite and making the microsite URL your username.
      Run a contest and recruit popular YouTube users to enter. Their submission will get pushed out to all their subscribers
    • LinkedIn
      Add 3 links to your public profile
      Search for influencer’s LinkedIn profiles
      Use InMail to contact them
      Much higher open rate than e-mail
      Add a LION (LinkedIn Open Networker) or two to your network.
      Use the TopLinked.com list. (http://www.toplinked.com/top50.html)
    • Facebook
      Create a fan page or group or both
      Use fan pages to build long term relationships
      Fan pages get indexed
      Use Facebook ads to build audiences faster
      Use groups for quick discussions and viral activity
      Groups are limited to 5000 members
      Customize your fan page or group
      Update regularly!
    • Twitter
      Pick a good account name (memorable)
      Customize your background
      Follow people with lots of followers
      Many will follow you back
      Now you have a channel for your tweets
      Cater to that channel!
      Use hash tags for Twitter search
      Include URLs and references where appropriate
      Contribute regularly
    • Blogs
      Write unique and compelling stuff
      Interact with other bloggers.
      Comment on their blogs
      Link to their good stuff from your blog
      Get to know them
      DON’T SPAM them
      Build an audience through these relationships
      In time, people will link back to you
    • Proceed with Care!
      Social communities do not like to be “used”
      People in the communities take action
      So do the social media properties themselves
      Play nice!
      Be a member of the community
      Contribute to the community
      And it will pay you back
    • Thank You!
