    Getting Links To Your Site - This means you...

    (Page 2 of 9 )

    This means you need to make your links look to have appeared naturally. You do not want to add links too fast as that looks unnatural. You do not want all your links to say the same thing as this looks unnatural.

    Search Engines don’t want to be fooled. They want to rank sites that seem as if users found them to be popular and then linked to them. Think about this logically. Does it seem natural for all the links pointing to your site to say the exact same thing? Does it seem natural for you to get 1000 links in a week? The answer is NO!

    You need to vary your anchor text as would occur naturally. So if you have a site about Ferraris then for example have 60% of your links say “Ferraris” 10% say “Red Ferraris” and so on and so on.

    Deep Links:

    It is unnatural for all your backlinks to point to your home page. Do you honestly believe that if 100 people linked to your site that they would ALL point to your home page? I am sure that most will link to your home page but many would link to internal pages. Maybe they linked your Yellow Ferrari page and chose to link to that directly, or your gallery pages – you get the idea.

    I like to have 70% of my links pointing to my home page and 30% pointing to internal pages. This is known as deep links. So when requesting links be sure to throw in some deep links. This again makes your entire backlink network seem more natural and will help your rankings in the search engines.
