Five Reasons That It’s Easy To Get Links With A Blog

Five Reasons That It’s Easy To Get Links With A Blog

Posted by on Dec 18, 2007 in Blogging advice

Having your blog and regularly adding useful content to it enable you to quickly build a small authority level in your niche.

You most likely won’t achieve total financial freedom with your own little blog, but you will be able to establish some authority in your niche; unless, of course, you compete with all those money making blogs. 😉

It’s actually much easier to get incoming links and establish some presence online with a blog (especially WordPress) than if you build a large, static website.

Why?

Because …

1. Bloggers are very aware of the link juice and most bloggers are willing to return the favor if given a link. They are also much more willing to link to another blog related to their niche than to another static site related to their niche.

Why?

2. Bloggers feel a part of the same community. It’s that group feeling that ties bloggers together, and makes them willing to help each other, while not being so helpful to outsiders – those who build typical static HTML websites.

3. Bloggers like to write about the latest news and happenings in the blogosphere; and if you are the first one to write about an interesting story, you’ll automatically get links from others mentioning you as the source.

If, on the other hand, you build a large content site for the purpose of securing financial freedom through passive income, you won’t update the site very often and you’ll focus more on keywords related to the niche, rather than on the latest news in the blogosphere.

So getting natural links is much more difficult with a static site than with a blog.

4. Bloggers are much more likely to approve a comment you post on their blog if they see that your homepage is a blog, rather than a static content site.

It’s that community, peer feeling again.

And if your comment is approved, you get a link back to your blog. This is, of course, even more rewarding if you comment on dofollow blogs.

5. Social bookmarking sites such as Sphinn, BloggingZoom and others are targeted toward blogs, and not toward static content sites.

Yes, it is possible to get some exposure and a good link here and there with a classical website, but it’s much easier to be noticed if you have a customized WordPress blog and everyone can relate to you.

So that’s why you should have your own blog and get yourself known on the World Wide Web.

Your blog will quickly get many links pointing to it (especially to your internal pages – posts) and you’ll be quickly noticed and ranked by Google and other search engines.

But whether blogging is really worth your time and effort, and whether blogging can secure your financial freedom, are other questions, which are the topic of the next article: Why Blogging Sucks And Why You Should Build A Big Static Website.

  1. You always put out excellent content.

    I agree wholeheartedly.

    Bloggers are in a community that automatically understands each other (do a degree).

    I am much more likely to link to blogs than static web sites.
    I also often find that bloggers check out my blog when I comment on their blog for the first time.
    I do the same thing.

    Again, great post!
    Keep it up!
