Getting free links from other peoples websites.
We all want the same thing, productive traffic. The thought that someone followed a link from one website to ours is exciting and when that click turns into a person that interacts with out site we are very pleased.
Often when you are looking to promote a new site you just visit every free link source you know and submit url, title, descript and leave it at that. You are missing out on a prime source of quality links that will be spidered by the major search engines as well as get human surfers to your site.
Lets take my site for example http://www.webmasterearnmoney.com There is no cost to you to sign up for a membership there and its not like you have to spend all your time there. With a free membership you get a profile with a link to your site as well as setting signatures that will display in all forum post.
So things to do that promote your site from my site, post in my forum. Often sites have a spam forum and a place to introduce yourself. Look at the most recent post and see if you can contribute anything relevant and useful. These post will have links to your site from the signature you set up earlier.
Submit any content that is relevant and use the "resource" or "about me" section at the bottom of each page to promote your site and urls. Content submitted like this are valuable to our sites and provide links back to you that are far superior to directory listings and resource page links.
Contact webmasters about reasonable and fair link exchanges. These often involve putting a link to them on your main page in exchange for a similar link. Many sites you visit have a "Partners" section where they put such link trades so if you see one then they are likely wanting to hear from you. Such link trades should be of equal value.
By equal value it should be kept in mind your site with a google PR of 1 might be turned down by another site
when you are asking for a link on a PR 5 page. Most webmasters I have contacted want relevant link exchange of similar value and many want non-competing links as well.
Some sites owners will consider creative partnerships. From my site (link near top of this article) if you browse to forums then notice at the bottom of forums listing a section called "Hosted Partners Forums" with a "Go Get Links - Support" forum? This is a creative partnership between of my own sites. Many webmasters would find great value in trading traffic and links with partnerships like this.
This type of partnership allows you to have a place to promote yourself from a different domain and update information about your site. Every time you post in "your forum" you would also be increasing the links back to your site. This kind of partnership gives the host of your forum content so the site remains active and the search engine spiders stay interested.
There are many ways to develop linking strategies from one site to another the reason why you should take advantage of them is obvious when you search google for information. Most searches turn up a few forum post and articles on the first page of results. I know I often find relevant information when I follow a link to a forum post and then to another website.
Keep in mind that all the ideas suggested here are in no way intended to be high maintenance projects. These are just things you can take a day to do at a few sites and then revisit the more productive sites and add more as you see fit.
