Make your website popular

One of the most popular ways to increase traffic to your web site is to have inbound links, but all links are not the same. You want links that have “Juice.” As a Social Media consultant to businesses in the Central Texas area, I am often asked by people new to search engine optimization and web design how to get people more people to come to their page?

Over on Forum Docs there was a recent post that desicribes some attributes and description on Link Juice that is worth the read. The points they bring out is how to qualify the value (or importance) of links by their attributes. The question becomes how do you get those backlinks you need to drive more search traffic your way?

A simple places to make sure your site is listed on is the Open directory Project at dmoz.com . Simply pick your subject and ensure you provide all the relevant data. There you go, your first backlink with Juice! Next up is to head over to Google and Yahoo and look at how you can submit links via their submission services. And of course if you have a blog, don’t forget to register it with Technorati.

If you are in Central Texas and are considering expanding your website presence or creating a new look, you want a professional who can help you navigate the world wide web. We know how to build your site, integrate social media or blogs, or otherwise provide you the permanent online presence that you expect.

    Aside from posting quality and unique content, the other challenge for a webmaster or a blogger for that matter is building links pointing to the site. Inbound links will determine the popularity of a certain site and this is still what Google and other search engine are basing the site’s relevance. But not just any backlinks, they should be of a higher PR and related to the niche or industry a site is concentrating on.

    Backlinks are considered as votes for a site’s popularity or acceptance and this is being tabulated by search engines most especially Google. That is why backlinks can also be a very profitable business to go into.
