One way links or 3 way linking

By reklicom

Traditionally reciprocal linking has been a tried and true method of raising the profile of a website on the internet. The major search engines still index sites based on the number of links from one site to another amongst many other factors. Of course the best way is one way links.

Who else benefits, well clearly the website promotion/SEO company who are being paid a fee to dupe unwitting website owners to knowingly or unknowingly engage in these 3 way link practices. They may get away with it in the short term however practices that generally have little benefit to the wider internet community and are only being used to manipulate the search engines are typically weeded out by responses by the major search engines in redefining their ranking algorithms and dropping sites from search engine listings who behave inappropriately.

The way other sites link to you is very important make sure the keywords are clickable. Search engines look at the words you use to describe links. One important fact to remember is when placing a one way link on another site make sure the keywords and site are relevant to your site.

Many webmaster learn quickly that links pointing to your site very important when promoting and marketing your website business. The second reason for getting inbound links is to impress the search engines. Everyone is talking about them, what are inbound links? These are links that point from another website to your website.

One way links will benefit your site the most, but they are difficult to come by. Links from search engines or directories are a form of a non-reciprocal linking. In most cases, inclusion in directories will increase your rank as you get high quality links to your site. Directories are not search engines.

Writing articles is a great way to establish one way links. Do some research on your keywords you are going to use and include this in your bio. Submit your article to as many article sites as possible with your link. Other webmasters will see your article and use it for content on their sites, the condition is that they need to keep your link intact.

One of the best ways to get one way links is to get your site listed with directories, this well help in achieving link popularity. Two of the better directories are Yahoo and the Open Directory Project.

Submitting your links to free directories is one way of building one way links to your site, there are those directories that will ask for a fee to have your link included in the directory. Building one way links on link directories is not difficult but very time consuming, most webmaster higher a firm to submit the links. - 16651
