If you have a brand new website, you quickly wish to accomplish at least two things: have the new site indexed in the search engines and drive some traffic to it. Keeping these two things in mind anytime you build a new site. Below are 3 effective ways to build backlinks for a brand new website.
1. Social Bookmarking For Quick Indexing
Among the first the things I do when I have my new site built and have a few pages of content to posted, is usually to bookmark my site home page and some of the individual articles.
I personally use Stumbleupon, reddit and delicious for this specific purpose.
By posting backlinks to this site on those popular social bookmarking sites, search engines like Google will quickly find the new content and index it, often within one day.
It’s advisable to use an existing account that already has some friends or network connection and some other pages bookmarked.
If you’re new, spend a little extra time connecting with other users and bookmarking some of their pages along with other interesting articles and blog posts in your niche.
2. Article Marketing For Indexing and a Strong Backlink
Next, I sit back and write three to five articles, each should be about 400 to 500 words long on the general topic of interest to anyone in my niche. I submit those articles to EzineArticles.com with a resource box at the end containing one link pointing to my home page and a second link pointing to either a blog post, or perhaps a category page.
EzineArticles.com is the strongest and many popular article directory out there and it’s constantly crawled by the search engine spiders. By submitting some articles there, I will coax those spiders to the brand new site and make sure it gets indexed.
Since the backlinks from article directories are followed links, ultimately, they are strong backlinks to my site which helps with my new site’s authority and increase speed the time it will take before my content starts to rank in Google and other search engines.
3. Guest Posting For Backlinks and Traffic
Writing blog posts to get published on other people’s blogs – known as guest blogging is yet another fantastic way to build strong backlinks for your website. The higher the authority of the blog you are writing for is, the stronger your link will likely be.
In addition, I also want to start guest blogging immediately for a new site since it brings me a nice little stream of traffic. Again, if your blog is already popular, and has a big readership, you can expect to see a large amount of traffic from each post.
So, If you are new in this industry and wondering the different strategies on building backlinks for your brand new website, follow these three strategies so that you can quickly get indexed by the major search engines, get some initial traffic and reduce the wait time it will take to start appearing in the serps (search engine pages).
