The very first and most important thing to do for link building is to have a list of keywords for your website. You must have a keyword list before beginning link building. Link building works off those keywords that you have for your website.

Tampa SEO also explores the important of link building.

Tampa SEO Link Building Tip #1: Use content to prove to Google you’re the expert of your industry.

Articles are a key thing to have on your website. Using these articles will give you opportunity to use all of your keywords that you have and to show Google and your customers you are the expert in your industry.
There is a right and wrong way to write these articles. You want to make sure that you are NOT keyword stuffing. What keyword stuffing is, is the overuse of the keywords in the article you are writing. Just make sure that when you are writing an article you don’t just keep throwing the keyword in random places that it does not make sense.

Tampa SEO Link Building Tip #2: Use directories to gain incoming links quickly and easily.

For directories you can find list of free directories to submit your website to and that have a good PageRank. For this you find the list of directories and follow the instructions that the directory has in order to submit it. Use the link to list below to start with.

Don’t submit to any directory with a PageRank less than your website.

It’s best to look through the list and start with the higher PageRank like 4 and 5. Any PageRank that is higher than the website you are submitting.

Tampa SEO Link Building Tip #3: Don’t waste your time blog commenting.

This is a new policy my company established. No more blog commenting – ever. Its not worth our time.

However, what we do like to do is GUEST POST. So we email webmasters and say “Hey, we’ll write a great piece of content for you if you link back to our site!” and then we write them a unique piece of content and they can write one for us. For this what you do is contact the webmaster of similar blogs so you can write a guest post for them for they can write one for you. Doing this widens the audience that you are reaching. When you write a guest post for another website that is relevant to yours you are going and reaching a whole other audience. Don’t forget that if someone writes a guest post on your website, they will probably be promoting the post on their website and to their readers.

We also have another article specifically about Guest Blogging.

Tampa SEO Link Building Tip #4: Get your website and business social.

Submitting your link to social websites helps the consumer find and “stumble upon” your website. Using social websites is very helpful because people put in their interests on certain websites and if you fit those interests your website could be brought to your potential customers.

To do this you must take the website you are working on and submit the link, a description, and some keywords that you want it to have on it. What works best for this is using specific pages on the website to be more specific. When adding keywords use keywords that are relevant to the page you are submitting.

A B2B company may  not necessarily need to be submitted to the popular social websites like Digg and StumbleUpon because their services may not be for the consumer. A restaurant or business that sells things directly to the consumer will be more likely to have a return on the time they spend submitting their link to social websites like Digg and StumbleUpon.

The top 7 Social Websites that we use are:

  • Digg
  • StumbleUpon
  • DropJack
  • GiveALink
  • Newsvine
  • Jeqq
  • Folkd
