Time for another post, it's been a few months but I wanted to share a little something I learned that is increasing traffic to some of my clients websites as well as mine.
Have you heard of Drop My Link, a great site where you can Google queries to find thousands of sites to drop your links on and create backlinks.
There is a Drop down list that displays various networks where you can add relevant links "without spamming" . These networks are:
Using the Official Alexa Extension allows you to see how much traffic is going to a particular page in the Google's organic listings as seen in picture below by the blue bar. Note I used the "Do Follow Comment Blogs" Query in the Drop Down Menu.
As you can see the benefit of this is based on the amount of traffic so your link can be seen, unfortunately it does not tell you the Pagerank of that particular page so I rely on the SEO Status Pagerank/Alexa Toolbar when I click through the link. While it can be beneficial and relevant to place your link here, the Pagerank is 1 as I clicked through and I'm looking for that juice to flow through to my page so I click back and sift through the search results till I find a good balance of Alexa rank and Pagerank.
The only thing you have to do is leave a relevant comment that correlates to the page your linking to. I like to leave at least 3-4 sentences and thank the author for the great information provided.
Dropping your link on .edu and .gov blogs are good for Authority and search engines tend to see them as more important for the accurate and abundance of information.
Last but not least the page I'm linking to should have the keywords in the page name, title, description, and content. its good to bold some of the keywords and have some internal links that correlate to those keywords.
