1) Directory Listings
Search for free company rosters and see what comes up. Tons and I mean loads, of websites that allow you to list your business or site for absolutely no cost. Why? Because their financial models are typically based upon the up-sell, see that, the premium listing. Oh you get the basics free of charge, but what you really prefer is the one that allows you to load pictures, videos, and the longer, expanded version recap. The good part is, nearly all of the free versions will list your site link, and this helps individuals discover you and your internet backlink method. Here are a few of the most popular directories:
- Biz Highway
And let’s not lose sight of the search engine wars that lead to millions of gratuitous, unclaimed listings for companies like:
- Google My Business
- Bing Places for Business
Does it take time to complete their listing forms? You know it! It’s free, but not effortless.
2) Complimentary PR
Have a new good or service you would like to get recognized? Write a news release and get it submitted through a PR service that, like the directories, provides free fundamental press release submittal services. These generally won’t arrive at the main media outlets, most of who use sites like PR Newswire or Business Wire, but the middle tier media outlet market can be accessed by PR services with cost-free options, like…

3) Social Media
If you are trying to get reach on the internet and you don’t have a Facebook page, LinkedIn account, Google+ page and Twitter username, shame on you! All of these provide absolutely free listings on websites with extremely high Google page rankings. They’re the most significant social media websites on the web. If you have a business you can also get a business page on these sites that links to your individual profile. Even when you don’t have time to “work” these websites to their fullest, there is link juice available from even the most horrible fan profiles.
A better method is to get in the social media arena and pick one or two of these to construct pages and initiate a communication with others who are already comfortable using this vehicle.
4) Offer Commentary
You and I both know there is way too much free information on the net, however we still have a couple of favoured blogs or news websites we go to get our fill of self-help or what’s taking place in the realms that we follow.
So do others who might just want to visit your blog? On nearly all blogs, you are able to write comments. The blog writers like this because it tells the search engine world and new readers that people are engaged in their content, and nothing detrimental can stem from that. When you leave a comment, you’ll usually have the option to connect your website link to your reply. Often you can link to other items to as a possibility, like your Facebook or Twitter page.
Do it. If you reserve 30 minutes a week, you can browse recent columns from your favoured sites and write purposeful (key word) remarks on them. Gradually, the value of your insights combined with the link back to your website will create traffic and SEO power.
5) Your Email Signature
This is the easiest free of cost technique I know of to get people to a blog, and the one that is surprisingly most often overlooked. Every email you send ought to have a standard footer that describes you. It usually has a name, title or something captivating about you, and some way to connect with you. It should also have your website linked or whatever other page you may want to lead people to, like a LinkedIn page. You can use a text anchor link or spell out the link beginning with http so it looks like http://www.yourlink.com and will be visible in text-based web mail browsers also and a live hyperlink in most email programs. Emails get forwarded, copied, and otherwise shared. You don’t know who is reading and clicking.
