Are You Linking Properly to Your Website?

Links to your site are still very important. In fact, it is one of the single most important offsite factors in ranking. So you want to make sure you are doing it right, don’t you? Sorry for the size, I shot this in the wrong setup.

    Your insights on link building strategy are very helpful, I am working on building links to my site currently. I am starting with YouTube. What, in your opinion are the top sites to link with?

      Thanks Don,

      Start with the main directory sites: Bing Local, Yahoo Local, Merchant Circle, Manta, Thumbtack, etc., these should be a good start.

    Just out of curiosity is there a way to find out if any quality (or disreputable) sites are currently linking to your site?

      You are better off just letting it happen. Trying to fight the guys that steal your content is like pushing a boulder up hill. There are ways to check bad neighborhoods but you will spend all of your time doing it.
