So you want to build more inbound links to your website. But how do you do that? Yes, you can publish articles, distribute press releases, post to social media sites, bookmark your content on social bookmarking sites, guest blog, and more. But how do you get other website owners to mention you, write about you, and link to your in their content … without you asking them to?
The secret is to give first and always support others. Before you can even begin to expect others to link to you and write about or mention you, YOU need to give mentions, links, and shout outs to others. If you’re reading this post, you’re probably a little more savvy than most (kudos to you!), and think this isn’t a big secret, but unfortunately, the web seems to be getting crowded with people who expect promotion just because they exist.
But it doesn’t work like that.
