One of the very best methods to build relevance for your website is through the use of backlinks. You probably already knew that backlinks can build traffic, and that the anchor text used for them was important, but let’s look at the sites themselves, and see how your site relevance is related to the places who link to you.
Understandably, all websites have a good chance of getting links from unexpected places. Since a majority of Internet users know nothing about SEO, they consider placing a link to your site a compliment, even if they place the impromptu ad on a site that has nothing in common with yours. For this reason, search engines won’t penalize you for the occasional bit of unfocused attention, but you should be extra careful that your INTENDED backlinks are from related sources.
Anywhere that asks you to fill out a profile, consider it an opportunity to tell the world what your company stands for, and remember to use the same approximate description and keywords each time. Join the prominent Internet directories, especially directories such as DMOZ, which are recognized as reliable and non-spam locations.
USE YOUR COMPANY NAME AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE. This is vitally important in order to build your company’s recognition, especially if you are new to online marketing. For obvious reasons, your company name will probably be the easiest of your keywords to get a top rating for, and that will provide you with many opportunities to expand the keyword relevance into more particular phrases. Getting the word out is your first concern.
Likewise, avoid the spam sites, as they will not do your website any improvement. It is tempting to click on an ad that promises to list your site in thousands of search engines and directories, but there are couple of minor obstacles to that really being helpful: More than 80% of search traffic is performed on the top 5 search engines, and those key search engines are not generally on the list these utilities refer your site to. Secondly, having your T-shirt shop listed on a dozen computer repair and SEO related websites isn’t going to bring much traffic your way. If something looks to good to be true, it usually is.
