In this third installment, I will share another good strategy to strengthen your audience followers. So, if learning the basics of linking has you stumped, then follow along for the next few weeks as I help you navigate the new trends.
FIND THE BEST LINKS FOR YOUR SITE WITH KEYWORDS
If you’re aware of how links are set up, you’ll find that links go hand-in-hand with the use of “keywords”. If your blog is about a garden, you’ll need to narrow your keywords to the more specific words that will direct readers to you. So, is it a garden of flowers or herbs? Does it attract certain birds or butterflies? See? It could be one of hundreds.
To drill down to the specific keywords, think about how your readers may have found you. Did they type in High Desert Gardens into the search bar? Or did they find your blog by specifically looking for “yellow desert cacti blooms”?
You’ll need to place yourself in your new visitor’s shoes. Bring them to you with the keywords they might use to find you. Once you have these in a list, now it’s time to search for other sites that you have in common. Use your keywords to find other sites that would be a strong natural link.
Your search may find appropriate links from a corporate site, a YouTube video, a testimonial on Amazon, or even an industry blog about the garden topics you both support. If they are getting good traffic to their site, then it will be a better fit for you, too. Ask to link and begin a new source of traffic to your blog.
