This is search engine optimisation article number 6, only 44 more to go!
1. Think twice before using article submission directories
Many people use this method to get inbound links to their website. However, you are giving away quality content to other website owners. Submit the article to your own website and if it is good enough, it will naturally attract inbound links over time.
2. Write a blog or article on your own website regularly
Search engines love new and relevant content. The more regularly you add relevant content to your site, the more they love you.
3. Write a blog on another server
You could also write regular content on another website that drives traffic to your main website. This will both attract new visitors and also provide relvent inbound links for the search engines. Try and get it hosted with a different web host too.
4. Check your competitor's links
Find out which websites link to your competitors. Some of those sites will also be willing to link to you.
5. Forget about link exchanges
Exchanging links just for the sake of it no longer works. If there is real value in linking out to another site then fine. If not, then don't do it.
6. Find relevant directories
There are thousands of free directories on the net. Find the ones most relevant to you that do not require a reciprocal link and add your site.
7. Create videos on YouTube
The more useful your videos and the funnier they are, the more popular they will be and the more traffic will be driven back to your website.
8. Revise and tweak your content
Regularly update your content and add to it. Ensure it remains relevant and up-to-date.
