By giving WordPress themes for free, you get a priceless value in return. Links. Links that will increase your Pagerank and search engine rankings. It will also increase your Technorati Authority. Look at the top blogs on Ratified.Org. Most of them are basically blogs of wordpress theme designers.
Now, after 24 hours of releasing my first wordpress theme, it was downloaded 100 times already. If at least 10% of those downloaded the theme actually use it, that’s 10 links in just one day. So far, I already see one blog using it by checking my Technorati links. And I’m hoping to see more links in the coming days.
If you are not techie but want to do the same thing, you can pay a wordpress theme designer to create a wordpress theme for you. I just don’t know how much it will cost you, but I think, it’s one way of building links the faster way, and the money you will pay will be worth it in the long run. Think about it.
Or why not sponsor a SEO contest? That’s another way to build links fast.
