Smart Link Building
Building links is relatively easy. Building great links is relatively hard, so it stands to reason that high page rank, high quality links are valued highly by the search engines and webmasters alike.
A pr3 link could cost as much as $50 a month and a pr 4 could be as expensive as $80, so you can see how these links are a value in themselves and it sure would be nice to be able to grab a whole bunch of them at will.
Well, the good news is you can create your own links with a little creative work and some patience.
The best method I've seen employed is to build a really good article and add it to a high pr hub site like EzineArticles, Squidoo or Hubpages. Then just build links to that article over an indefinite period. It need only take 10 minutes a day and in less than three months you could have a pr 3 page with 2 juicy links pointing back at your website.
The thing is, EzineArticles is about the highest page rank directory, so your page is likely to gain pr faster than on any other source. If you're really patient you could build a pr 5 page over a couple of years and that really is valuable.
The key is constantly gaining the odd link here and there, if you have the patience and the time it's a great idea and it has been proven by some really top marketers to work.
Smart link building doesn't just involve trying to get sneaky links it also means using your head to build some really great links as well.
By building a nice natural, ethical and respectable linking profile, your really feel the search engine's weight behind you.
You don't have to rush out and start building a thousand links straight away, just start with your best 5 articles, make sure they are all around the 800 word minimum mark and build some quality links to them and you'll almost immediately start to see the results and rewards.
This is the easiest way to get high pr links back to your site, without having to beg, borrow, swap or buy from people you don't trust.
So take the initiative and give it a go and make your presence on the web felt.
Good luck with the link building campaign!
