How to convince webmasters that they should link to your site

Suppose that you have a great website with great content. Your web pages are perfectly optimized for visitors and search engines and you have found many related websites that could link to your site.

How do you convince these websites that they should link to your website? Here are five tips that will help you to convince other webmasters.

1. Offer something in return

The easiest thing that you could offer is a link in return. However, not all webmasters want to exchange links.

There are many things that you could offer in exchange for a link. This could be a discount for your products, an ad on your website or even a simple hint.

If you find a broken link on a website, inform the webmaster about the link. Tell him that your own website might be a good replacement for the broken link (if it is).

2. Ask your current link partners

If another website already links to you then they might add another link to a different page on your website.

Getting a second link from existing link partners is much easier than getting new links because you don't have to explain yourself anymore. The other webmaster already knows you and your site.

3. Make friends with people from your industry

Networking can help you to get links to your website. This works best with blogs that are related to your website.

Contact the blog owners and compliment on their sites. Do not ask for a link in your first contact. When you've a good relationship with the blog owner, you might inform him about a new product or a new article that you've written.

Chances are that you'll get a link from the blog then. These links from related blogs have a great impact on the position of your website in Google's search results. IBP can help you to find blogs that are related to your website.

4. Show that other webmasters already linked to your website

It's easier for people to do something if they see that other people have done the same thing before. If many other websites link to your website, you could mention this in your link request.

If a well known website mentioned your site, that's even better: "As you might have seen on, we've published a new product. This might be interesting to the visitors of your website."

5. Offer something that other people don't have

This is the easiest way to get links. If you have a report with ground-breaking new information or something other that's very interesting and only available on your website then it will be very easy to get links to the page that contains that information.

Getting links from other websites isn't difficult if you know how to do it. Further information about link building can be found in our free SEO book. The book explains everything you need to know to get links from related websites, Internet directories and other sources.
