I have tried a few of these and they work pretty well. Give one or all a shot and let me know what worked for you in the comment section below.
|clipped from www.linkbuildingblog.com|
|1) Ensure you pick up all pages that mention your site but don’t link to you. So how do you go about finding these pages which mention you but don’t link to you? The manual way is to run searches such as:http://www.sitename.com
|2) Gain links from people trying to hot-link your images. If you run a site of any size or any worth then you will almost certainly have plenty of images on your site which people will want to steal, borrow, pilfer or just blog about. Patrick Altoft has written a fantastic script which allows you to gain links from anyone who is looking to use your images.|
|3) Keep your friends close, your enemies closer. So how about creating a competition, or award and handing it out to the top ranking sites in your sector? Everyone loves awards and the chances are that people will then link back to the source of the awards.|
4) Flamebait – like linkbait only flame grilled.
Working on the any PR is good PR (and equivalently, any links are good links) Andy Beal blogs about the subject in more depth here. The holy-grail for this tactic is to get sued by a company who no-one likes, that way you can get the social media crowd on your side!
5) Keep it funny schmuck.
I’ll leave you on a high note with a little bit of humor. Next time someone famous in your industry makes a big announcement spend 30 mins with your favorite photo-manipulation software (mine is the gimp) and come up with (something funny) .
