5 Links Builders Every Affiliate Marketing Newbie Needs to Know

Every Affiliate Marketing Newbie want to build up traffic like the Professionals!

While the task of article writing flows naturally to some, to others it seems like a task meant for Hercules. Both Professionals and Newbies alike should inculcate the habit of optimizing known methods to increase their backlists. Backlists are an essential ingredient in ranking websites high on the major search engines.

The truth is that there is no harm in refreshing your memory on such an important aspect of affiliate marketing. Just sit tight and digest these time tested methods for links building. I know to some individuals, this is a timely refresher course!

It is said 'more ranking gives more traffic', and of course having more traffic could lead to making more money. Definitely using great online marketing ideas and strategies will rack in cool money!

1. Article Writing

Even before the advent of affiliate marketing, individuals had been able to create a brand name for themselves by writing articles as guest writers on newspaper columns and in magazine.

Article writing is a great method of generating backlinks. The method of writing articles on other forums creates backlinks to your website' page. This is by readers making use of the link which is usually in the author's signature. Now every affiliate marketing newbie could apply this method online by writing and submitting to article directories.

When article writing is mentioned, most affiliate marketing newbies tend to limit themselves to online write ups. Writing articles could be done using all forms of media. The only factor that should be topmost in an affiliate marketing newbie's mind is that at all times he should be seen to be contributing great online marketing ideas as it relates to his niche.

The more various forums are used, the more backlists can be expected. Nowadays article writing directories make use of special social bookmarkings to further promote your articles and build up your links

Remember to also post your articles in news and syndication sites, all in the bid to promote backlists to your site.

2. Forum Participation

In the past, blogging used to be very great for creating backlists. All that was required then was to just simply comment on an issue and add your link to your comment.

As a result of so much abuse, most blogs don't allow the adding of links to your comments any more. Most people now build links by interacting in communities which they join and being active in relative forums.

In forums, members are free to interact with one another by asking question and providing answers in treads or through live chats. Here you need to build your 'base' by being an active player within the forum so that people tends to see more of your contributions and post within the forum. Your activities within the system mark you out and people tend to reach out to you through your reference link or profile.

You could even join such forum's online marketing affiliate program. This is a good opportunity to make money within the system while building relationships with other members of the community. Make sure you add value and rich content to the forum and good backlinks can then be generated.

3. Content Rich Websites

These days it is easier to build a website and customize it, making look unique for the purpose you have in mind.

The bulk game is to build on the various pages and beef it up with your keyword related content. These ought to be materials that are informative and current.

A content rich site can encourage people to link to it automatically due to the information within your web pages. This natural way of link building is called link baiting. Websites that are content rich and relevant to particular niches tends to get more traffic to it. Often people tend to talk about such sites on forums and some even add up posting it on social bookmarking sites in order to share with their friends.

4. Linking from your Own Website

Another simple method to add to your link building is by carrying out internal linking. You send backlists from other pages within your site to a particular page of interest. This is usually done when your site is filled with very similar and relevant pages to one another.

This method in my opinion should be considered very rarely as such links are not considered as highly as those gotten from external sources to your webpage.

5. Reciprocal Link Building

This method involves link exchange between websites. It simply involves linking to websites that are linking to you. It could really be helpful when it is from an authority site. This is a common practice among members within forums that are working within the same niche but could be on different affiliate programs.

Usually there are other ways to build links and generate traffic like the use of videos and social media. Some of these are new and interesting, but they have one thing in common. They create awareness in people hence boosting traffic.

It is advisable to stick with the know methods of traffic boosting even when you explore other new and exciting ways you might have discovered.
