Link Building – Top 7 viral marketing strategies

How to Use Articles for Link Building
Link building is a necessity if you want your web site to increase or maintain rankings in the search engines. Even though you may currently enjoy your first page rankings, don’t get too comfortable because competing web sites may have link building campaigns running. Suddenly you may lose your position.

Instead of looking for new links everyday use viral marketing. This means people link to your web site automatically without you manually searching for them all the time.

Top 7 viral marketing strategies:

1. Create valuable content

Web site owners and newsletter publishers are always looking for unique content that offers great value to their readers. If you create a well written article it will keep working for you over and over again. People will automatically want to link ot it. One great article can become a viral marketing machine.

2. Create short reports

Bundle several of your articles into a report of 10-25 pages. Be sure to include links to your products and/or web site. Offer the report to your newsletter subscribers and/or offer it to other publishers or website owners. Submit it to ebook directories. By freely distributing your report you you create a viral affect.

3. Build a team of affiliates

You’ve probably been an affiliate for a clickbank or commission junction product. You automatically help build links for the product owner by promoting their product. Why not do the same for your own products and create a team of affiliates. The number of links (and sales) will increase in proportion to the number of affiliates on your team.

4. Write a press release

Convert one of your well written articles to a press release then distribute it to free and paid press release sites. If you’re a local business send it to local radio and newspaper outlets. You not only get high value liinks from these sites but it helps generate traffic by people finding out about you.
