The Chamber of Commerce Link Building Opportunity for SMBs

The Chamber of Commerce Link Building Opportunity for SMBs | Link Building Help | Scoop.it

When you run a brick and mortar business one of the places you would like to be listed at is your local Chamber of Commerce.

The links that come from your Chamber of Commerce site offer two real values. First is a local citation that is a trusted organization that is over 100 years old. Second is a link that has the potential to bring both customers and better rankings.

 

I’ve looked at about 10 chamber of commerce pages and noticed some strengths and some areas that could be improved.

Link-building Tips and Tools for Bloggers in a Post-Panda and Penguin World | ProBlogger

Link-building Tips and Tools for Bloggers in a Post-Panda and Penguin World | ProBlogger | Link Building Help | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"So you might be asking what more can be written about link building for bloggers? There are tons of great link-building strategies that can be utilized to increase e backlinks.

 

Google released the Panda update that took rankings away from websites with low-quality content and sites with more advertising than content.

Penguin, announced in April 2012, decreased search visibility of websites that participated in black-hat SEO, keyword stuffing, cloaking, link schemes, duplicate content, and other activities that violated Google Webmaster Guidelines.

 

Now that you know some things to avoid, here are some things you can actually do to build links to your blog.

 

1. Submit your blog to blog directories:

One advantage blogs have over other websites is the ability to submit to tons of various blog and RSS aggregators. There is a huge compilation of blog and RSS directories listed at TopRank.

 

2. Complete your social network and forum profiles:

If you participate on any social media network, social bookmarking site, community, or forum, you will want to make sure that you have a link to your blog on that website in your profile.

 

3. Become a guest author:

How do you find blogs to submit guest posts to? There are a few good ways.

>> Search Google using queries with the keyword of your niche plus “submit guest post,” “guest post guidelines,” “guest author guidelines,” “guest post by,” and so on.

>> Check out lists like the "202+ High Quality Internet Marketing PR3 – PR8 Blogs That Accept Guest Posts".
>> Join communities like My Blog Guest.
>> Use Google Authorship.

 

4. Contribute unique content to quality article networks:

When I say unique content, I mean content that hasn’t been “spun” or published elsewhere. And when I say quality article networks, I mean ones that:
>> have some sort of moderation: they shouldn’t just let anyone post anything they want;
>> fit your niche, like Self Growth for the self-improvement and personal development niche; 
>> have a built-in community that actually wants to read articles, like HubPages and Squidoo;
>> feature authors on their homepage, newsletters, etc.;
>> don’t have too many ads on article content or the site as a whole;

 

5. Get your content on weekly roundups:

Your goal, if you want to be included in these roundups, is to get on the radar of the people who create them.

 

6. Comment on blogs:

Blog commenting is powerful for a variety of reasons beyond just link building. Again, this is not to be abused for anchor text links and generic comments, but if you leave valuable engagement, you will likely get the attention of the blog owner and authors of the blog plus other members of the blog’s commenting community. This will inevitably drive traffic back to your website.

 

7. Use your blog’s design:

If you have a unique design, there are galleries that exist purely to showcase blog designs. If you use WordPress, there are galleries that are all for WordPress designs.

 

***Link-building tools:

- Spreadsheets...
- Webmaster Tools...
- Open Site Explorer...
- Authority Labs...
- Google Alerts..."

 

Each element is analyzed with more information, examples and external links. It's very useful guide. Read full article here:

I can’t stress enough the importance of categorising link opportunities and spending a proportionate amount of time developing that link relative to its “worth” in the context of your campaign. After all, you wouldn’t send your entire sales team to close that “one-man outfit” sales prospect.

Future of Link building 2012 and Ahead

Future of Link building 2012 and Ahead | Link Building Help | Scoop.it

With the latest updates like Panda and Penguin, the link building strategies adopted by most search engine optimizers needs to be changed.

 

The techniques of link buildinghave more or less remained the same for the past several years but now the game has changed.Getting natural backlinks is what has become more necessary than before. Almost every business must devise a strategy for user engagement and link building through user engagement.

 

The rules are not hard bind, these would get changed for every website according to their niche. Let’s see what approach we must follow as search engine optimizers to build quality links for our client’s websites.

 

Content Has Become King Of Kings

Now, the position of content has become more important than before. Previously little content with ads and syndication worked but after the Panda update, low quality content has no place in Google. Hence, quality and user friendly content is required to attract people.

Hence, your first strategy should be to create content on your site as per the needs of your targeted audience. Before you start the process of link building, this is the most required part of your campaign.

Sites that cannot have content like ecommerce product sites might use user comments, reviews, product description, testimonials as their main content.
