Toying with 3 ideas to build links


I had a few ideas that I’m looking for feedback on. I’m trying to come up with some ideas for link building.

  1. I always see that there are tons of coupon websites out there. Hell, I never buy anything online without looking there first. So for those with an ecommerce site, how about offering a coupon as a way to build links? Anybody try this? Results? Is there software that submits your offers in bulk?

  2. Years ago I was looking into affiliate marketing. I came across a program where affiliates gave direct links (non-coded) back to your website, hence building your one-way links. I just cannot remember what company that was?! Any ideas? Anybody have any experience with this?

  3. Redistributing professionally written articles. Years ago I had a bunch of articles written for me, I sent them out via Isnare and today, I can barely find them. I understand we want to try to avoid dup content, but isn’t a link still a link?

Appreciate your insight!

A link is still a link, (better than nothing) but the link is no good unless it has authority. Retry your article on Hubpages or Squidoo and I bet you’ll never have a problem finding it in the future.

I think Google is pretty wise these days to most affiliate links. I know of a couple of sites that ranked due to lots of affiliate links. Then google changed their algorithms and they lost their ranking. It took them a while to get back up.

Article marketing has always been one of my favorite ways to build targeted links to my sites. However, I only submit to one article directory.

Hi today I find an interesting article about article marketing

that is, indeed, a most interesting article

i’m sure that article directory sites actually do know what they’re doing (i.e. spamming the internet with duplicated content)

i am so glad to see google cracking down on them

Yep that’s right.
