Get More Backlinks by Writing Articles

The number and quality of links pointing to your site is one of the major factors that influence the position of your web site in the search engines. Ideally you want to be on the first page for your main keyword phrase to receive the most traffic.

This may almost be impossible if it’s a very competitive phrase ie your competitors have 500 backlinks pointing to their site and you only have 50.

Here’s how to find out how many backlinks your competitors have:

1. Enter your main keyword phrase in the Google search box and make a note of the top 10 web sites.

2. Do a backlink check for each of these web sites by entering in the Yahoo search box.

3. Click the link “only this domain”

4. Repeat this procedure for your own site to see how many backlinks your site has.

5. Repeat this procedure for your other main phrases to see which phrase is the least competitive.

6. Select the phrase that is the least competitive ie if you have 50 backlinks for one of your phrases and your competitor has 75 you only need to get another 26 to out rank him (providing they are quality links).

7. Generate lots of backlinks to your web site by writing articles that include your keyword phrase in the content and live links pointing back to your site in the resource box at the end of the article.

8. Submit your articles to the top article directories.

9. Write and submit 3 articles/week over 2 months..more if you have time, less if you don’t. The most important aspect of this exercise is to do it consistently.

10. Monitor your results by checking your rankings and site stats. Some article directories provide stats on how many people read your articles.

You’ll get more backlinks as you increase the volume of articles you produce.
