YouAsk&iAnswer: Link Building

If you have questions where you think my opinion matters, YouAsk&iAnswer. I’ll try to answer your question and share my opinion on the matter. To start with, let me answer one question posted by one of my readers.

Ferdielicious commented on my previous post asking me several questions regarding SEO. Since the question is made public thru my comment box, I’ve decided to answer him on this blog post as part of my YouAsk&iAnswer series.

Ok, here’s his question:

Hello I’m just curious about this SEO stuff you’ve been talking about here in your blog. How do you acquire links for a particular keyword? I mean I’m still learning how to go about this SEO stuff so I need some info on this matter. Does getting more links mean getting one way links or 2 way? I hope you can answer my query..I’m very curious and interested in learning SEO.

First of all, thank you for asking. Though I don’t consider myself an SEO expert, I’ll try to answer your questions simply based on my experience.

Basically, your question is about link building. Where to get those links. What kind of links to acquire? One way links or 2 way links?

First of all. Let me answer the last question. Which link to get, one way or two way links? One way links seem to get more credits nowadays. So, focus on that. But you must not hesitate exchanging links. A blog looks spam if it has tons of one-way links and zero 2-way links. Besides, exchanging links with other bloggers will give you more online friends, which might be able to link to your interesting blog posts in the future. So, have a good balance of those links.

Now, how do you acquire these links? Getting 2 way links is easier, especially as a blogger. The blogosphere is a link-friendly environment. Linking to them first and politely asking for a link back via their tagboard or contact form works best for me. Just be friendly, and you’ll get your 2 way links easily.

Now, for the one-way link which I said you must focus on, I already made a blog post for it. Check it out here. In addition to that, you can also acquire one way links via social bookmarking sites such as del.icio.us and Digg. Only make sure that your blog post is really bookmarkable, otherwise, they might label you as spammer and ban you.

That’s all for now. Send your questions here. If your question is selected, you get a free link back on my YouAsk&iAnswer series post. 🙂
