Of course, as the webmaster of a small business website, you likely will stick to tried-and-true search engine optimization methods. A few tricks that you can use to create back links, and improve your search engine optimization overall include;
Provide a Case Study and Gather Links
One of the best ways to encourage other websites in your industry to link to you is to provide high-quality, relevant data about your industry. An excellent way to do so, is to create a survey, or conducted case study, about certain aspects of your industry. In providing high quality, original content, you will find that other websites in your industry are going to be more apt to link to you. This is especially true if you present the information in an appealing way.
Seek Promotion Instead of Just Backlinking
Another Tip that should be taken to heart for any search engine optimization specialist, is to focus on promoting, as well as typical back linking. Promotion, should be seen as creating links and advertisements with the aim of directly driving traffic to your website through click through’s. By focusing on building links that are actually going to drive traffic to your website, not only will you improve your back linking profile, but will also drive traffic to your website through those links.
Natural Is Ideal
As Google updates their algorithm to look for websites that have natural profiles, both in terms of the types of back links that they have pointing to their website, as well is the content and anchor text, trying to keep things as natural as possible can be an a great way to minimize the risk that these back links post your website. If you follow the algorithm updates, then you have likely heard about websites being punished for having an unnatural back linking profile. There are multiple ways in which Google determines whether or not you’re linking profile look natural. First of all, overemphasizing certain keywords and not spreading out your anchor text enough, shows that links have been artificially built. Also, only receiving links from certain types of sources, such as social bookmarking websites, can show that perhaps you have purchased a linking service, which is not natural in the eyes of Google.
Using these tips, you can improve your search engine optimization efforts with relatively small amounts of effort. By looking at all of the effort that you put into search engine optimization, making a small change in the way that you operate on a day-to-day basis in order to appear more natural is going to be hugely beneficial to your website, and allow you to Garner higher rankings. Provide unique content, promote your website in an honest way, and attempt to do as much natural as CEO is possible for positive results.
