Get Top Search Engine Rankings and Make Money Online

Written by Trent Brownrigg  · March 25, 2008

If you want to make money online then one of your best chances for doing that is to build a website or blog and get it ranked at the top of the search engines. This will bring in a lot of traffic and it will be very targeted because they will be actively searching for what you have to offer. Plus, when you are ranked highly your site will continue to get traffic day after day with no extra effort on your part. That is a huge advantage over other forms of marketing and advertising.

There are a lot of factors that go into gaining top search engine rankings but one of the biggest factors is inbound links. Getting links from other sites pointing to your site will increase your rankings better than any other search engine optimization technique. So, in this post, I am going to discuss some of the best ways to get inbound links.

Article Submissions – One of the most popular and most effective ways to get inbound links to your website, writing and submitting articles has been proven to work for years. There are plenty of sites that accept article submissions and they are just waiting for you to submit your articles.

All you have to do is write articles on topics related to your website with a link to your site in the resource box at the bottom, and submit them to article directories and other sites that accept articles. You will get inbound links from those sites and from any others that find your articles and republish them on their sites and blogs.

Guest Blogging – This has become very popular recently and continues to gain even more popularity among bloggers and website owners. You write up a post for someone else’s blog in the same niche as yours and add a link to your site at the bottom. In fact, you are reading a guest post right now. I am a guest author on this blog and you will see at the end there is a link to my website.

Blog Comments – Another good method for getting inbound links that has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. It’s very simple, all you have to do is go to blogs and comment on posts. There is usually a spot for you to put a link when you comment. Most blogs these days do not follow links in comments so you won’t gain anything from commenting on them. However, there are still a lot that do follow comment links and those are the ones you want to comment on.

The D-List is a great place to find blogs that do follow. Remember to actually read the posts and provide useful comments. If you don’t your comments will get deleted and you will become known as a comment spammer. That will definitely not help you!

Link Exchanges – Although not nearly as effective as they used to be, link exchanges can still be a great way to get inbound links and a boost in the search engines. There have been countless articles written about link exchanges so I am not going to get too in-depth here, but basically you find quality sites related to yours and ask them if they will link to your site and you will give them a link from your site in exchange.

Memes – These come in all kinds of different forms depending on who started it and what the purpose of the meme is. But a typical meme is a list of questions that you answer and post on your blog/website. Then someone else reads it and continues it on by posting in on their blog/site. Memes are viral in nature and are meant to spread easily. Again, it depends on the meme but most of the time you link back to the site you found it on. So all you have to do is start your own meme and you could get quite a few backlinks from it.

Link Bait – Just as the title suggests, this is something you do for the sole purpose of getting a lot of links very quickly. Running a contest where the participants get entries for linking to your site is a great example of link bait. Another good example is writing a highly controversial post on a hot topic that you know will get a lot of exposure and people will naturally link to it.

These are all very good methods for getting inbound links for your website or blog and gaining top search engine rankings. They are certainly not the only ways to get links but they are some of the most popular and best ways. Continually doing the things above will definitely get you a lot of inbound links and increase your search engine rankings.

One final thing to remember about getting inbound links is to put the keywords you want to rank for as the anchor text on your links anytime you have the choice. This will greatly increase the keyword authority for your website and will help it outrank other sites for those keywords.

Now, get out there and start building up your inbound links so you can get top search engine rankings and make money online!

    Good post… all good tips, and further to the “One final thing…keywords you want to rank for as the anchor text …” – it’s also good to remember (as I didn’t originally), that AdSense will use title etc. too, so if you want the ads to be relevant, your title needs to be relevant – I had put some posts up with titles of just – ‘March Update” or something, before I noticed I was getting generalised ads, which won’t get clicks.

    I like the list and I have done many of these however I think that article marketing is becoming less and less effective, many due to duplicate content rules in google which result in dwindling backlinks over time. I still think that blogging and careful link exchanges are the most effect. Thanka for this blog post it sums up the whole bakc link strategy well.
