The concept of link building is to utilize it effectively so that you will always get a flow of traffic back to your site. The following are effective ways to get links:
Blog commenting is one of easiest ways to get links to your website. Search for blogs that are related to your niche and comment on them. It is important to only leave comments on blogs that are do-follow, otherwise the link will not count. Your comments should add value to the discussion. Don't say something like “Great Post”, webmasters will consider that as spam and will delete it.
Article marketing is also a great way to build links to your website. Write a few articles and submit them to various article directories. Remember and insert your website link into the bio section located under every article. Become a smarter article marketer and check out the Scribe Content Library.
