Basic Link Building Tactics

Even in the age of hyper-personalization and geo-location in search, the number of inbound links pointing to your site is still the most important aspect of developing and securing top search engine positions. That’s right, it’s not about internal linking structure, keyword density or the presence or absence of title tags – it’s about getting websites to link to yours. So how do you do that in 2009?

Link building hasn’t really changed much over the years and it probably won’t in 2009 either. Link building involves getting other Web sites to link to your site. The creativity we apply to link building however is what separate the high-rankers from the non-rankers. Think of link-building as a word of mouth recommendation; the more dramatic, compelling and interesting the recommendation, the more believable and attractive the proposition of visiting becomes for the user.
