Top Link Building Strategies for New Sites

TopLinkBuildingStrategiesThis article is for new websites on the assumption that new websites will not have any previous web presence and do not yet have an online presence. Organic links come from other people, and are often due to a website’s online reputation, its use, its popularity and its current content.

As a new website you will not be able to leverage any of these factors (at least not in the early stages), which is why all of the tips on this article can be actioned straight away.


Article sites

These are sites that allow you to upload articles and link from them. They do not have a massive page rank, but do still offer links that Google and the others will pay attention to. Many of them do not have very strict rules about content. Some of them do not even check your content for accuracy. There are a lot of them, so try to find ones that are popular.


Guest blogging

You can post a guest blog post on someone else’s blog/website. They get free content for their blog and you get a link. The only problem is that the more popular the blog is then the less likely they are to allow you to guest post on their blog. However, there are so many of these sites that you can upload a fair amount of content if you do not mind a fair amount of rejection before getting what you want.


Asking your friends to link to you

If your friends have blogs and websites then ask them to link to you every now and again. You can swap links with them for a mutual SEO benefit. Your friends are less likely to ask for things in return for links, and are less likely to tell you to go away when you ask for a link. This could work to your benefit if your friends have high-ranking websites or blogs.


Cross website linking

If you have more than one website or blog then you have no excuse for not cross-linking them up. You can link them as many times as you like, but be aware that Google may not like it if you link from too many pages (it may be seen as over optimization).



Setting up your own blog, adding to it, maintaining it and growing it is a hard task. However, you can add some very targeted content onto your blog and link it to your website for an SEO boost. If your plan is to set up and run a blog anyway, then you have little excuse for not linking from it. You do not have to link from every post. But do try to link from the pages that are related to your websites content.


Social media begging

Go on social media and whine, beg or coerce. People will tell you that this method is ineffective and will get you a bad name, but so many people are doing it, that there has to be something in it.



Linking from Google-followed forums is not a bad idea if you go about it the right way. Firstly, you can fail if the forum is not followed by Google, because no amount of links will make a difference. The second way you can fail is if you tick-off the forum master and have week’s worth of posts removed.
