A strategy for getting incoming links

by Michael Stearns from HEROweb on January 30, 2009

We all know that it takes some work to build incoming links. And, good incoming links are worth their weight in gold. So why not give your site visitors a little incentive for linking to you?

Here is the plan.

Create a link invitation/instruction page. Preferably you will give several options that include a good sentence or two of keyword-rich text along with a link going to one of your internal pages.

And then make an offer of $5 off a purchase on your site.

Include a simple form, so your linking buddies can send you a link to their site and you can verify the incoming link.

Once you verify the link, reward them with a coupon code.

Give it a try and let us know how this strategy works for you.
