welcome to the seo village
LINK earning…I’ve been trying to write this post for few days, it was supposed to be about link building, one of the SEO strategies. But, things got complicated. I wanted to educate myself first. And when you’re asking the wrong questions, you keep running into wrong places. I found a million mostly confusing and a bit over complicated articles about LINK BUILDING.
LINK BUILDING is a process of getting link or hyperlinks that will lead to your website. It’s an important way of getting more traffic and to rank better because that is one of the ways that search engines are discovering your content. You can learn more about fundamental stuff here.
I was reading and reading, but most of the time, I was asking, okay, but how do I start link building myself?
Where do I find the answer?
You should keep in mind that authority and links that are leading to you, doesn’t come overnight. It’s just up to you if you’re willing to be creative, to plant a seed and water it every day.
However, if you start learning about link building, you will come across a lot of confusion, because a lot of people are saying that the era of the LINK BUILDING is over.What do we do now?
You will come across a lot of confusion all across the web. But don’t worry. I don’t think we should divide those terms like the link building is something bad and link earning is good. Spam links are bad, and they can be recognized by search engines.
But still, I don’t believe, link earning means just writing a good content and wait for the people to find you. It’s a waste of time, and your website will die eventually. It’s like opening a pub in the less known and visited part of the city and expect for the people to know about you and your perfect beer all of the sudden.
So, if you ask me, I would not like to divide link building and link earning. For me, it will stay the same thing. But all of those are definitions and you can already find thousands of them. I just wanna show you few examples which you can apply to your website.
1.LINK TO OTHERS
Are you writing about something specific? Believe me, you’re not the only one. Except you’re writing about fashion collection for penguins? Oh, wait.You’re not the only one.Anyway, you get the point, there’s always someone out there that people can relate to. So, keep linking to other websites and content.
2.ASK OTHERS TO LINK TO YOU
It doesn’t cost you a thing to try. Reach out and ask someone to link to you. They call them webmasters. They probably have much more audience than you, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have a good content even if you just started. Did they need to start from somewhere too?
Of course, we will always come to social media. Be present on few of them. I’m currently on Instagram, Twitter, and Reddit. Keep posting and informing people about new posts. There’s a possibility that people will be more interested in your pictures on Instagram rather than your website, but one day they will click. And your life will change.
Also, you should try using social bookmark websites more often, where poeple are already searching for something specific.
4.COMMENT ON OTHER BLOGS
There’s a whole universe of people doing similar things like you. After all, how can you write if you’re not reading as well? Find interesting content, that will keep your attention and comment on it. But don’t leave spam comments like visit my website. I did that if I’m being honest because I was tired, and my comment was deleted. So, just keep exploring the world of possibilites.
You found interesting bloggers, people educated about a topic you’re also writing about while you were exploring trough that universe of blogs? Awesome, contact one of those people. Ask them to write a gues post for you. They might refuse or ignore you, but it’s still worth a try. Nothing is coming over night. One day, they will ask you to write a guest post for you, and that’s your chance for getting more traffic to your webisite.
6. SUBMIT YOUR WEBSITE TO WEB DIRECTOIES
Here’s a list of 50 diretories where you can submit your website. Some of them are working, some don’t. But you can try it anyway.
That’s it for today, hope you will try some of this solutions and that you will be persistant in your link earning/building adventure.

Keywords are the essential part of our SEO journey. If you are wondering what are they, yes those are words, and phrases. Pretty simple. Those are the things people are typing in the search box, and those are valuable resources that can get you on the first page of the google results.
HOW DO WE USE THEM
Carefully. 🙂 But seriously, in the last article, we were talking about being specific. Do you know what is your content about? Could you describe it in 2 words? 3, 4 ? Then you are ready to go. If you need to talk about it in long sentences, then you might think about changing something. But also, avoid only one keyword. Because you will be competing against a lot. For example, if your keyword is makeup, think about how many companies are already appearing on the front page of the google. But If you make it a little bit more specific, like – Cheap makeup review- then you know that you can count on a little bit space on that google sky.
