You work to write good quality information on you website, and you do this on a consistent basis. Anybody the would want to learn about your niche could really learn a lot from what you have to say, and you ALSO can get paid for you time.
There’s just a slight problem:
NOBODY’S VISITING YOUR SITE!
Now I am sure that you already know that the best way to build traffic to your site is through link building, as it helps you rank higher in the search engines because you are a more relevant source of information. You also know that a great way to build a lot of links is through forum and blog commenting. THAT’S NOT NEW TO YOU!
And there’s the added problem that when you comment on blogs, the webmaster might just delete your comment because they think you’re tyring to SPAM thier readers. So how do increase your chances of webmasters approving your comment WITH the URL intact.
JUST BECOME ONE OF THIER READERS!!
I’ll explain it further, but it really is a very simple and effective concept (the best kind). If you find good blogs with quality information that you find useful, then I want you to continually read the blog posts and comment on them. When a webmaster sees that you are learning from their content, and that you aren’t just trying to pull a fast one on them, they will feel as though you are trustworthy (the most important thing in a business that’s known for being untrustworthy). Webmasters need your comments because it helps them in the search engines, so if you give them quality and quantity in your comments, they will have no choice but to accept them.
And do not get this confused: I do not mean read all of their posts in one day and comment on all of them on the same day, or even all in the same week. I am talking about once a day AT MOST, and that might even be too often. You must show the webmaster that you are committed to their site and that will continue to be a repeat reader.
If you do this, then the webmaster will not only accept your comments, but he will WELCOME THEM. If you do this right, then you will make a fair trade with the webmaster: backlinks for useful comments.
GET OUT THERE, START COMMENTING, AND GET YOUR BACKLINKS!
