nicely written article... very helpful.

I like how you broke it down so simply "what you say about yourself" and "what others say about you"


Thanks for taking the time to read it. I hope it will help you understand SEO as you move forward with your site.

Hi Abar,

You partially mentioned it yourself in one of your posts - I think you can ask the customers who were happy with your services for a link to your website. You can offer a small discount on future maintenance services to motivate them. And I would also ask your suppliers / partners for a link (exchange). I presume their sites would be at least a bit truck- / repair- / maintenance- related, so the links can improve your SERP rankings a bit AND they can also bring you some actual traffic (users clicking the links). A link from an unrelated website - e.g. a flowershop (or an unrelated link directory) - will not hurt you, but most probably will not help much either.

Maybe I am wrong, but my impression from your 1st post is, that you focus solely on number of links and their PR. You will benefit much more from a few links from websites thematicaly related to yours, then from 100 links from spammy link directories unrelated to trucks or their maintenance.

However I would subscribe to specialised truck directories and regional directories. These are probably often visited by people involved in the transportation and truck maintenance business. And do not forget the Google Places.

Cheers!

That is a great idea.. giving a slight discount to link back to the site. I did not know that the backlinks are rated based on how relevant they are to a website.. that is very good to know.

Thanksa again.

Ok I got an idea.

Since my webpage is relatively small and does not have a lot of backlinks, is it a good idea to create an industry specific directory of websites and require a reciprocal link? Then, after I have created a very relevant directory (because of all the industry specific sites and backlinks); if I link back to my companies website from the directory, will that increase my page rank.

man this sounds like a complex plan.... thoughts?

Many people (including me) would regard that to be a manipulative link scheme.

Give people a REASON to link to you -- not an INCENTIVE.

ABAR why are you still looking for magic bullets? You're at the wrong forum to find them.

I don't get it ..
what makes you think that optimizing a small website is different from optimizing a big one ?

And it is pages that you optimise NOT sites.
