For some time now, I have been making an effort with link building each day for my site. Even something as small as getting a couple high value links pointing to my site each day sends my traffic through the roof.
A couple of years ago, a buddy of mine gave me some good link building ideas that I incorporated into my link building strategies. Some of the examples include forum signatures, article submission, and directory submission. I have also started to comment and participate on blogs that are related to my niche. Not only does this help get my name out there, but it helps to establish me as an expert on the web.
The one thing I found is that the effects of your link building don’t show up right away, but increase over time. What I do enjoy is that I can benefit from the work that I did months ago when the traffic starts flowing in – which can be wonderful to see.
