Back-links are a major source of traffic and play an important role in your search engine rankings. Simply put a back-link is when your website url appears on other websites. As an online business owner your goal is to constantly increase the number of back-links pointing back to your site as you will then increase your traffic.

Here we will look at a variety of ways that you can build back-links and increase your daily website traffic.

1. Article marketing is a very effective way to build back-links as the author’s resource box at the bottom of an article will contain a link pointing back to the writer’s website. You can increase back-links by writing and submitting articles to the article directories on a regular and consistent basis.

2. Write blog articles and submit them to social directories. Bookmarking a blog post is a valuable way to get a back-link pointing back to your blog. When you write a blog article be sure to submit it to the Social directories.

3. Blog commenting on other people’s blogs will create a back-link when you post a comment and include a link to your website or blog.

4. Online discussion forums allow you add a hyperlinked keyword phrase back to your website in your signature file. Every time you make a post in the forum you signature file will be shown along with the link.

5. Reciprocal linking is another way to build back-links. Joining a reciprocal linking company will enable you to find hundreds of link partners to trade with.

6. Submit paid adverts to the ezines that are stored on the internet. Once your advert is published it will serve as a back-link in these archived issues

7. Press releases will contain a link back to your website that can bring traffic both short-term and well into the future so send out a press release to promote something new about your online business.

8. Purchasing a text link on another blog’s sidebar can end up on thousands of pages giving you massive exposure with one link.

9. Testimonials are another valuable way to build back-links and traffic. Take every opportunity to submit a testimonial, whether it be for a sales page, in a forum or about a product you have tried.

There are many ways to build back-links but the more you have the better and the ways mentioned above will certainly help increase your back-links and generate targeted traffic to your online business.
