For link creation: There are hundreds of link building techniques but not all of them are needed in your campaign. These practices in link building can be free or paid. It can also be legal and illegal. That's why before performing a technique, be certain that it's legal (white hat seo). Study about it, download free e-books and understand how it can really benefit you. Does it bring a long term exposure to your niche? Is it recommended by SEO experts? If you answer yes to both questions then you're good. Start performing the technique regularly.
Ok was looking into link creation. Not sure if it's white hat or not. I know white is hat is good and black hat is bad.
What I found out is to write for the audience not for the search engines. As suggested I'm finding out what my audience is looking for in regards to what to write about in terms of content.
I can write an original post. I'm no expert in the niche but there seems to be tons of info on the internet. I don't want to steal anyone's content of course. What I've been doing is studying the niche and writing down tidbits.
Going back to link creation. From what I've read I can submit my article to the likes of Ezine Articles, ArticlesBase etc. Post the article on my blog/site then submit the article to the likes linking back to my blog/site.
Question/s; How often should one add content/article to their site>submit the article Ezine? Everyday, once a week?
I was also looking into manual submission to directories but that seems like a waste of time. I've read when you're site is new manually submit to 10 directories a day for 2-3 weeks. Start with high PR then work your way down.
So I think submitting to the likes of EzineArticles looks good but that's not the 'end all'.
I found something else in addition to submitting to the likes of EzineArticles and want to get your opinion.
Create web 2.0's like squidoo etc, word press blog etc. Say my category keyword is widgets, create web 2.0 based on category keyword and post the original article that I submitted to EzineArticles to the web 2.0's. When I submit an article to EzineArticles post the article to all my web 2.0's.
