Backlink Plan

Backlink Plan

Your Backlink Plan is a Key Link In Driving Traffic

I wanted to talk today about your Backlink Plan, why we all need one and what part it all plays in both driving traffic and establishing credibilty in your niche,

Much has been said recently about miracle traffic software but the truth is Google loves links, assuming that is they are relevant to your niche and for that reason alone your Backlink Plan is really important, it’s not a flavour of the month tactic, it’s timeless

I have touched on before the value of Interal Linking and it has two advantages, it clearly creates links deep into your site, it gives your readers a broader take on your topic and again Google loves them, so what’s not to like?

Now clearly you need to be careful, placing your Backlink Plan in the hands of low cost outsourcer could be a big mistake, now let me qualify this, I use as you know the micro outsource sites regularly and I have found a lot of really good people, but I have also been targeted by blog spammers and I suspect that a lot of that is people offering to generate 3000 links for $4 Dollars

You may be thinking but I hate blog commenting, doing the research to find them and building my Backlink Plan but I would counter that with 20 minutes to half an hour a day spent well will reap big rewards, you will after all spend at least that reading about the next big thing or the newest shiny object and we all know where that gets us

The True Value In Your Backlink Plan

So what is the true value in your Backlink plan, well aside from your link building activity you are doing three key things, number one is that you are getting a number of different points of view outside of your own, in short you are educating yourself, a couple of the blogs I visit two or three times a week always give me a new slant on an old idea, so highly valuable

Number two in your Backlink Plan is you are relationship building, there may well be a time you want to approach that person, maybe to promote for you, maybe to offer them a guest post, it’s going to be much easier if they recognize you as being in their niche and on their wavelength rather than just another my hand in your pocket type

Reason number three in your Backlink plan is simple really, if you appear regularly on high traffic blogs and comment people will out of curiosity come and look at you, they may even write about you, people like David Risley regularly look at their readers blogs for ideas and he will critique what he sees in a post, good or bad and when somebody like David talks we would be pretty silly not to pay full attention to what he has to say

So in essence what I am saying is that two to two and a half hours that you spend drifting around is now spent on your Backlink Plan, driving traffic, building relationships and getting a different viewpoint on what you do, if somebody like David comments on something you do,it’s priceless, it maybe painful in the short term but we must learn from those who know not try to reinvent the wheel

What Tools Can I Use In My Backlink Plan?

So what tools should you use in your Backlink Plan? well I think the following are the best for these, first up is look on the micro outsourcing sites Fiverr Gigswood & Zeerk search for backlinks and pick the people who are offering realistic numbers of backlinks, you will see people creating 20 to 100 backlinks for $4-$20 Dollars, clearly if their good just rinse and repeat

Use plugins like Comment Luv on your blog and yes I know I don’t have it at the moment but that will be put right very shortly, this gives your commenter a link to their latest post from your site and it encourages them to come back on a regular basis, another relationship building exercise

I think however the best Backlink Plan I’ve seen is Shane Mclaughs in a world of wild promises he delivers true value, the amount of free information and software here is remarkable and he has been quick to expose some of the snake oil merchants and to take them to task

Lastly but by no means least in your Backlink Plan is Internal Linking Google loves it and it encourages your readers to dig deeper into your site

So as always I’d love to hear what you think and what else you do to generate your backlinks, doubtless you will be using strategies that I haven’t mentioned here, just be sure to build you own Backlink Plan



Dont Overlook Internal Linking

I think the importance of Internal Linking on blogs has been lost on most of us, we all understand the importance of posting on other peoples blogs that relate to our subject but we tend to forget that we have a lot of important content on our own
It allows you to go into much greater detail on a topic your reader is seeking information on, so really it’s a great win-win situation,it improves the user-experience of your visitors and introduces them to some of your older blog posts
Blog internal links are also important for your search engine optimization. Same way that your visitors discover older posts via internal links, same way you show search engines which content of yours is worth crawling and indexing in their search results.
We tend to get driven by flavour of the month SEO techniques, so sometimes it is important that we remember some things are timeless, a quick search produces information posted two and three years ago that is really fresh today, just imagine say trying  that with traffic generation, it would be completely pointless
It will for me form part of a rethink that I am going to have over the next fortnight in how I lay things out, sure you can get lost in research but I found a couple of really valuable bits of automation on this, firstly a plug in from WordPress called insights it allows you to find pages and content that relate to your post with great link value
Secondly again from WordPress was this one and it’s even more in tune with what we are talking about, it makes it easy both to create the link and to find other posts to link to

Is There an Ultimate Traffic Solution?

There’s been a lot of hype on this subject recently but I’m really pleased that over the last few days there have been some genuinely helpful products brought to the market, we touched on Dean Holland’s new product last week and his refreshing frankness that you won’t make £237,511 Dollars this month if you buy this product but he went on to explain what you can expect and how quickly things can grow when you do things properly, if you missed it go to
On Friday I had my scammers rant and talked about Bryan Winters taking on the kind of false claims being made for products, earnings, testimonials, scarcity and a whole lot more, judging by your response you tended to agree with me that enough is enough, again if you missed what Bryan was saying then go to
But I’m wandering here!Is there an Ultimate Traffic Solution? well let’s first say that this man has pedigree in Traffic products,his new one can bring in traffic the same day, you can build a list, promote affiliate products,even promote your own products, once in place it will bring in completely automated sales and income, but best of all it will never become saturated or outdated

All Is Forgiven

I was critical of Fernando Alonso in the German Grand Prix at Hockenhiem, perhaps harshly as history will prove when he was handed the race when his team mate Pelipe Massa moved over after apparent team orders and let him through, but there are always two sides to every story and after the FIA investigation that became clear
Well this weekend belonged to Ferrari and particularly Fernando Alonso, he kept remorseless pressure on Jenson Button until he pitted and then with great pit work he emerged just in front and ran away from him, the scenes of Alonso and Massa together with team principal Stefano Demenicali on the podium with the tifosi massed on the pit straight I think signaled the day that we all warmed to Fernando
The scene in the grand stands of the tifosi in their red wigs really made me smile, Ferrari fans worldwide will have had their arms in the air and I suspect that this will have been the day we fell in love with Alonso, read Andrew Bensons comments on his BBC Blog and then watch the post race interview with Alonso here
PS If you think you can beat Felipe and Fernando then I think you need to try out the Ferrari Virtual Academy go to I notice it’s down this morning, I wonder why :)
