  • 1. Why you need to have a text linkstrategy and how to get started
  • 2. If you have been on the internet more than 10 seconds you know what a text link is -- a word, or group of words which can be clicked to direct a web surfer to anotherpage or site on the internet which will provide information related to that word or group of words.
  • 3. In spite of the facts that this advertising tool is so familiar and simple, many internet marketers overlook it when devising an advertising and marketing plan. But this is a very big mistake because text linking is one of the least expensive and yet most powerful advertising options available.
  • 4. Why You Need A Text Link Strategy For Your Web Site
  • 5. Why is it important to have text links spread across anetwork of other web sites? I can answer that in one word -- traffic.
  • 6. Text links equal traffic. It really is that simple.
  • 7. Text links work for you three ways:
  • 8. ~ Direct traffic when visitors click on the key words youhave selected as your "anchor text". This is very targeted,very profitable traffic too as each visitor deliberately clicks with the intention of learning more about whatever the key words are promoting.
  • 9. ~ Search engine traffic when their spiders encounter thetext link and key words then visit your site. This can leadto more frequent visits by the search engines and factor into search placement.
  • 10. ~ Back links that affect both search engine ranking for your site but also search results
  • 11. Text links can provide all those benefits -- which can directly translate into income from your web site -- andyou can often buy text links for under $10 and the link will not only promote the specific site or page you choose butalso connect it with the specific key words that will benefit you the most. Even better, when you buy a text link you are locking in your price so even if it delivers a ton of traffic -- you dont have to increase your ad budget.
  • 12. How Can You Get Started With Text Links?
  • 13. After you have developed your site and it is ready for visitors you should work up two versions of your text link. The first will be just a few words or a short phrase thatincludes the key words for your target site. The second will also include a longer description that may be a sentence or two. You should be able to find a selection of text links available for either choice.
  • 14. When purchasing text links it is important to work with a known quantity and that usually is made easier if you work through a reputable text link broker.
  • 15. Some points to consider when buying a text link:~ Search engine rank (Google, Alexa, etc.) and age of site
  • 16. ~ Traffic
  • 17. ~ Content, design and usability of site
  • 18. ~ Placement of your link and number of links on the page/site
  • 19. Many inexperienced text link buyers focus solely on Google PR but that little number doesnt really tell an accurate tale about the traffic level on a site. While you shouldnt ignore search engine rank information, I think it is more important to pay attention to the position of thelink and the relevancy of the page or site content to yours. This will deliver better results in both the short and long term.
