Someone wrote a comment on one of my articles at EzineArticles that I had written
about the need to have a WordPress blog. The point made was that whether you have
a WordPress blog or one of the other types of blogs, you still have to have people
coming to your site. Traffic is a part of the formula that you must have for the
success of your Internet venture. Without people coming to your web site you will
have no sales. Without sales, you have no Internet income.
In this article I will discuss how to get links to your WordPress blog.
If you just bought a new domain and put a WordPress blog on that domain you will
not get any traffic. That is, unless you have lots of links pointing to your blog.
Remember, “no links equals no visitors”. Let me say it another way, you have got to
get links pointing to your site or you will not succeed!
These links should be high in terms of quality. If you get twenty five links from
sites that are not authority sites it will not do you much good. It would be much wiser
to get five links from web sites that have good page rank and are closely matched to the
overall theme of your blog.
There are basically two ways to get these types of links. First, you can research the web
and find high quality web sites that are theme related to your’s and email them asking for
links to your site. However, why would they want to link to your new page rank zero site?
You will get better results if you build a “Blog Farm”. A blog farm has one distinct advantage,
it is under your complete control. Instead of having to go asking for links, you will have
the ability to post a link from your blog farm to your new WordPress blog yourself.
You will have the power to add a link to “any” new blog that you build in the future.
This is what happens, the link to your new WordPress blog draws the search engine spiders
which is mandatory in order for your blog to be indexed in the major search engines,
which are Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
I will go over exactly “how” to build a blog farm in my next article.
