While the backlinks in place often don’t generate very many hits, there are many ways to optimize the content surrounding the backlinks so that they generate more hits and hence generate more income for the sites that use them. This is particularly important if you are hoping to build your reputation as a business that doesn’t spam the internet with unnecessary ads. Everyone has encountered them, after all, and no one bothers to listen to them. They show up every time you click on a movie to torrent it, every time you go to a seedy site that you wouldn’t be able to get at a good price from a reputable vendor. These are the sites that tend to give computers viruses, and you wouldn’t want your business associated with them. Thus, you should always provide quality content to your readers. Do not place links where they violate the quality guidelines of a site, or they will be taken down.
For example, there are many blogs, forums, and message boards that allow the posting of backlinks. After all, they’re looking for content and you’re looking for a place to promote yourself. It’s a free trade, then. On the other hand, there are sites that don’t appreciate links and see them as spamming. You should avoid these sites, as you are getting in the way of the entertainment going on there and you are not contributing to the discussion. Most likely, no one in the forum will bother to click on the link and some moderator will decide that your account should be terminated. Do not start multiple proxy accounts on social media communities for your site. Start one account as soon as you can, make this the official site, and then stop there. Otherwise, spreading positive opinions written by staff members will make the consumer think that you are insidious and unworthy of their patronage. This has happened to many a disreputable company, even if they tried their hardest to salvage their reputation after that. Don’t let it happen to you.
You don’t want to be one of the many sites that are rated as untrustworthy. This is especially true if you are just starting out, and you don’t have a large loyal clientele yet. You want to build your clientele, and to do this you will need to get the trust of the clients. You cannot get the trust of your clients by posting on sites that engage in activity unrelated to the product that you’re selling. This is generally seen as bad internet protocol, and it will get you blacklisted in places like Livejournal and Tumblr. With that said, you should watch the tags of these places closely. If you can manage to put together a quality post that will not disturb the activities happening here, while still holding the links that you need, take the time to do so. This is a quality strategy that will help a lot in the long run. Even if many people will still be displeased, they won’t be frustrated with your business.
