Are you looking for a quick and easy way to get links and for your company’s website? Chances are you have link opportunities that are already available to you that you aren’t taking advantage of. Do you belong to any local, regional, national or international trade organisation or groups? Most of these organisations have and maintain websites. When you become a member having your website listed is usually just a matter of asking and submitting the proper information. Do you belong to your local Rotary or chamber of commerce? If so chances are they have a website and you’re entitled to link on the website as part of your membership. Does your business sponsor local youth sports teams, charity events or school functions? If you do be sure to ask if a link is included as part of your support. These types of links are so easy to get it’s surprising how many businesses and organisations aren’t taking advantage of them.
Another easy linking opportunity is local businesses you know or deal with. Does you lawyer have a website where they list names of their clients? If they do ask if they can make your company name a link back to you. If the florist next door to you has a website ask them about putting up a link to you on his website. Of course you should be willing to reciprocate the offer on your website. It’s important that you only link to reputable people run by people you know and trust, and not anyone who asks, and not with every email that finds its way to your inbox. One important part of linking is understanding the people you exchange links with help the search engines determine what neighbourhood you want to be a part of.
