What's best could depend on what niche you're in. What niche are you in? We might be able to help you more if you tell us.

I don't know the best ways but I could point out one of the worst ways, in the hope of helping people avoid making those mistakes.

Outsourcing to Indian or Pakistani link building companies is the worst, IMO. Most of them promise thousands of links but "achieve" their goals by spamming forums and blogs. They get blacklisted and often get their clients blacklisted too. So my advice would be to be very, very careful before using such a service.

Some of them even go on forums to post fluff or copy and paste stuff until they up their post count so they can post a sig. Most forums just ban them, so be sure not to waste your money on that kind of thing.

Yes, I don't think you can say any one particular method is "best".

In an ideal world, you do some of each of the things you mention (and I think you've covered most of the obvious means with that list), monitor the results for your particular site/niche, and draw conclusions from that.

Viral marketing is perhaps worth mentioning also. I can't say I've had a great deal of success with it, but if you are lucky and hit on the right idea I think it can be quite powerful.

Agree with the above their is no best way however one thing that you missed was reciprocal links. Keep a page on your site free so you can just put links to other sites on it and exchange with directories and other sites/individuals this will definately boost your rankings.

But my best advice to you is to try a bit of everything, something that works for me may not work for you and so on, so it's something you need to trial and error, it is time consuming but worth it in the end when you get the results you want.

It's often a trial and error with most people. Test the water and see what works. But you can'y go too far wrong by doing a bit of everything. After a while you will know the methods that are most effective for your market.

Like most people told you already there is no one best way, the best is to combine them probably but you need to know how to do it well otherwise is not that powerful.

You forgot RSS Feeds

Also i would stay away from Blog commenting if you don't know what you are doing since it could hurt you more than help you.

Outsourcing it to companies who gets you links from forums or blogs comments is suicide, unless you are an Internet Marketer, then it could be very good.

Assuming you're not using any automated methods which post cr*p, how might blog commenting harm you?

Humans post cr*p too, Paul. In which case, that could harm the commentor.

The key phrase is "if you don't know what you're doing". I do quite a lot of blog commenting and it often leads to friendship and co-operation. Dare I say I think I do know what I'm doing? Twisted Evil That's the difference.

Indeed, that is true.

I'd like to think that someone that doesn't know what they're doing could still very quickly grasp what's involved, though. It's not like it's rocket science. Smile

It's not rocket science to comment on some blogs, especially if you're interested in the subject, but if you're getting paid one rupee per comment and you're doing it all day every day then that's a different matter.

Sure, they could probably grasp quite quickly how to do it well, but no one is asking or expecting them to do it well. They simply have to meet their quotas. Mostly it's just copy and paste stuff anyway.

"I like your writing. I have bookmark this site."

You seem to be thinking of blog commenting as something that people do because they like it or because they're carefully building links to and interest for their websites or blogs. But most blog commenting is done as a 'business', not by people who have any interest in doing it for its own sake.

Google has nearly a complete copy of the Internet on their servers. They create the results based on their code. Links are nice to have, but I heard you need a mimum of 1,000 top quality ones to make a difference. Far better is updating your website and Blog so the search engine knows you are active.

Kay... agree with everything you say. I guess the responsibility lies with blog owners to a large extent to moderate their comments accordingly. If rubbish comments never get approved, that sector of the industry that you refer to ought to quickly die out.

It's sweeping statements like these that really irritate me sometimes!

Where did you hear you need to have a minimum of 1,000 top quality links? And what does "to make a difference" mean anyway? I started a new business this year which takes all its orders online. It has nothing remotely like 1,000 top quality links into it and yet it does very nicely and dominates its niche.

As for updating your website being better than link building... it's a meaningless remark really. It would depend on the quality/quantity of each that would determine which is better.

Your comments felt personal.

Your post about building a website in a niche market was interesting. Perhaps you could explain how you made it successful.

I have one niche website and have top position, but it is not a very popular term. I have another, which continues to stay in the top 3, about life in a village, with interactive maps, videos, and local information, with a direct link from Wikipedia. This has a lot more visitors.
