					If you are the webmaster of a newly launched website, or if your website
lacks the popularity it deserves, you should have a look at the following
10-step guide, which will show you how to get valuable links and improve
your traffic levels and overall site popularity:

1. Use the full power of automated link management websites and
directories. This is the easiest and most effective way of getting links
to your website. Some great resources to start linking to other websites,
go to:


2. Place a link or invitation for potential link partners. There are many
webmasters who visit related websites and some of them might want to link
to you. Make sure to offer them an easy and quick solution to initiate
the link exchange.

3. Use high authority websites like Wikipedia to generate traffic and
increase your website popularity. Remember that quality is king on such
websites, so don’t try to spam them or find quick solutions. Become part
of the community and your links will be more than welcome.

4. Become a part of the blogging craze. Create your own blog (you can do
that for free with services like Blogger or Word Press) and start posting
on other blogs. Try to include a link to your website where the context
allows it. Blog posting is effective and has the potential to send
hundreds of visitors each week with only a few well written comments and
some subtle links.

5. Join a few forums related to the topic of your website and become an
active member. Try to create the exact same user name and password for
more forums, so that you can manage your posts and memberships better.
Some forums don’t allow you to place links in your messages – unless they
are really valuable forums try to avoid them as they will bring little

6. Post on groups and other online communities.

7. Use social bookmarking websites such as or to
generate interest in your website. The more interesting the content of
your pages is, the more credit you will get from the people who determine
the placement of your links.

8. Yahoo Answers is another interesting source of traffic and links. Make
sure to become a real contributor to the program, not just someone who
places a link without any real content.

9. Offer something of value for free to your visitors or newsletter
subscribers. This will generate a viral effect in which visitors tell
their friends about your website. This will lead to increased traffic,
plus it will let more webmasters know that you exist, increasing the
chances of a link exchange.
10. Use the full power of article submissions. This is another viral
marketing tool that has the potential of generating more and more
incoming links towards your website as the articles you submitted get
republished on blogs and websites. You may want to register with some
ezines and directories to submit your article for inclusion, such as:


Article submission can be tedious, which is why you may want to consider
an automatic article submitter. It will submit one article to over 30
directories in half an hour. To watch a video on how to accomplish this,
