Link building has become the norm for us as bloggers hoping to get better Google Page Rank and ultimately better search engine results. The big question is linking to the wrong website or blog. The expert always says to get link from websites with to get better results. It is always the idea that we should link to do follow blogs as these links carry better weight in the eyes of the Search Engines thus yielding better results. As far as I look at it a link is a link may it be do follow or not it should not matter the site is what matters to me.
I am no expert at Seo or anything technical when it comes to Seo I am just sharing my opinion here so bare that in mind. If your blog is about website design would you link to a website that is about postcards I guess you wouldn’t but I would let me try and explain my reason here? Take this as an example when a visitor comes to your website and leave a comment and his website details it maybe a gambling website, do you remove that comment or keep it? Get the picture now.
Link Building is in my eyes a form of marketing strategy one that I strongly believes works and will continue to do so. What I am not sure about is the benefit from the Search Engines, the actual weight it carries but certainly it has serves its purpose, if you don’t believe just check your blog statistics and see where the traffic is coming from and you might be surprise. I comment on lots of blogs and never stop to think if it is a do follow blog I am more interested in the blogs quality that is what matters to me.
Linking to high traffic blog is a good way to build links the more organic traffic a blog gets is the better the chance of you getting visitors to your website. One such proof is the social bookmarking website digg if you blog post made it to the front page of digg then the traffic spin of will be great. This means when you are planning your link building campaign you should choose your link partners carefully. Choosing your link partner does not means it has to be in the same niche of ours but you should ensure the validity of the site you choose to link with.
