How to Attract Links and Increase Web Traffic – The Ultimate Guide

Links and traffic… who wants some?

The number of excellent resources that have come out since the beginning of the year on attracting links and building traffic has really mushroomed. Plus there are some timeless classics that are still very relevant today.

I think it makes sense to compile the very best in one handy location and share it, so here’s my entire collection. If I missed your link and traffic resource let me know and I’ll take a look.

Now, it doesn’t matter if you like the term “link baiting” or not. It’s the process that one goes through to attract links that matters, not whether you prefer to think of your content as bait for links. I like to think that creating content that increases web traffic and builds links simply falls under the general social media optimization marketing buzz phrase that is gaining in popularity.

So, here’s your ultimate “how to” guide to creating content that attracts links and drives traffic in the social media environment:

  1. And how many links will this link bait post get?

    As always, thank you for your excellent (self-reinforcing) post!

  2. Richard, I’m sure I have no idea what you’re talking about. :)

    Thanks!

  3. I’d like to think these posts about driving links and traffic would qualify for this list:
    Link Building for Blogs
    10 Creative Traffic Building Ideas
    25 Tips for Marketing Your Blog
    But then again, I’m biased and this is Brian’s post – not mine. :)

  4. Lee, your first one is already up there… don’t think I would leave you out. :)

    I’ll look at the other two as well… these have just been my bookmarks I’ve collected over time, so I’m quite sure there are others that qualify.

  5. I totally missed that – thank you for including it Brian – this is a very bookmarkable list!

  6. Though I appreciate the list (and I’ve filed it away for future reference), the sheer volume of stuff is a little daunting.

    I’m wondering if from a “blogging strategy” perspective, you would have gotten more people to read this if it had broken up into smaller “chunks”. Or, a “best of the best” list.

    Then again, who cares about that, it’s useful the way it is. :)

  7. I’ve used all these methods to bait links to my site. Many of these work well.

    Thanks.

    http://virtualmagic.blogspot.com

  8. another great post, I love this site.

  9. Not an exact match, but I wonder if this one might fit –

    http://selfhelpdaily.com/the-abcs-of-blogging/

    If not, feel free to delete this comment.

  10. Brian, great list. Most of them, already read and knew by most, altough some are still good for any veteran out there.

    I am sure that this small guide on link buildingis of no great importance :p

  11. Maybe this is covered, but a good tip for building links is setting up a spot on MySpace. It’s free. That website is one of the popular online, so just having a link back to your site will help your page ranking in the search engines.

    This month, I just started taking SEO seriously. Thanks for the post.

    John

    http://www.realitycopywriting.com

  12. John:

    The SEO benefits from a myspace profile are minimal unless the particular profile also gets backlinks. The search engines know to discount links on popular sites that anyone can make an account on. The trick is to find sites that the Search engines have Not yet discounted and put your links on those sites.

    But a myspace profile is a good idea from a branding prospective for many sites.

  13. Nice coverage, Brian.

    Not to forget to use the power of free press release to get more exposure and backlinks:

    Press Release Quick and Easy Guide
    An Indepth Look Into Free Press Release Site

  14. Good call. I’ve got that addressed in the Viral Copy collection of resources, but breaking the topic out is probably smart.

  15. Brian … nice “How To” with lots of useful links, a sure bookmark must with a digg it button. ;)

  16. Thanks for the Article Marketing tips. I reckon it really pays to have everything sorted out for your resource box so you can convert as many visitors as possible.

  17. If you dont mind here is another list to traffic building you might consider addind thank you

  18. Great post… it’s almost as good as the one from http://www.businesshackers.com

  19. I think there is not enough links…

  20. Another great article is this one from Mrs. Scobleizer:

  21. Great list, Brian. If someone wanted to get a group of reviewers together, they could potentially create a collated list of traffic and link building tips … hmm …

  22. Good read, thanks.

    Steve
    http://www.mycampusguide.com

  23. Lots of info…that’s why I have your RSS feeds, good solid info.

  24. Great article. Very nice read.

    Ed
    http://hghlook.com

  25. Nice collection of all those places we webmasters need to refresh ourselves on.

    Now how to keep the attention span for longer than the initial 3 seconds?

    http://www.idahofallz.com

  26. So great collection of links… thank you!!

  27. Interesting information… dugg and will look into.

    http://www.ps3me.com

  28. Nice collection. Will help me a lot in future.

  29. Good post! thanks for all the links to useful information.

  30. Brian, putting your post in our new category: “Hall of Fame Posts”. You’re the top of the heap & entry #1

    How about this shameless one?

    “To Catch a Link, Use the Right Bait”
    http://blog.sellsiusrealestate.com/?p=974

  31. Hello Brian,

    Great list! I hope you dont minding me doing a link drop. We have about 50 great articles listed on our linkbuildingwiki. Many of them not included on your list.

    http://www.linkbuildingwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page#Link_Building_-_Articles

  32. Wow, thanks for rounding all these up in one bookmarkable post ;). Our how-to is up as well if you’d like to check it out!!

  33. Put this in a book, sell it, and we’ll all buy it and read it. I’ve been using some of your tips and I find them productive and useful. Thank you so much.

    I’m going to each and every site you’ve recommended and I’m going to read all of them.

    But where is the time. I’m up to midnight, every night, and I feel overwhelmed at times. It’s worth it. I’d rather blog with flair and fun, than blog like a boring hack.

  34. Thank you for this huge list of how to attract web links and increase internet traffic. I am grateful for all of the writing tips: I would rather write a funny, useful and entertaining blog than a boring one.

    Here’s my submission to Darren’s ‘howto’ blogging project:

    (or just go to http://thatdamnpc.com and scroll down the page… )

  35. I read your site almost everyday! Great list of How to’s. Thanks for participating in the Group Writing Project. My How To is up also.

  36. I see a lot of tips but no analytics there… you can’t improve what you can’t measure, here’s a guide I wrote as a guest blogger:

    http://www.havelaptopwilltravel.com/projects/blogging-e-metrics/

  37. Great compilation of list, thanks.

  38. Alot of good resources to get started with. It’s about using the stuff that works best for your website/business.

  39. I put a simple metasearch engine in htt://www.climent.eu/BUSCADOR/buscadores.htm (I think I will be able to improve it). That could be something like linkbaiting, but the problem now is how to get people in that web page.

  40. This has got to be the best compilation of search engine marketing strategies! Thanks a bunch!

  41. … very useful links too. My how to is up.

  42. Great post – I plan to look at 2-3 sites per day and pick up new tips along the way. Is there one tip out of all of these that you would say is the most important/rewarding?

  43. Great list! Thanks for putting it together. AMAZINGLY helpful!

  44. Very useful links! Some of them I knew. But I think the content is what that matters.

  45. Great! Another bloody great list stuffed full of even more information for me to plough through!

    Thanks!

    Lee

    http://diginewyork.com

  46. Great link compilation, very helpful. I’ll link it from my page.

  47. >>Very useful links! Some of them I knew. But I think the content is what that matters.

    Uh, every single one of those resources says that the content is what matters. That’s what “creating compelling content” means. :)

  48. Very useful for me! Great links, great tips.

  49. I totally agree with the ideas you have mentioned. But I got another suggestion for bloggers to find blogs that are of similar topics and ask for link exchange. They could go to blog directories (e.g. http://blogannounce.info) and then go to the category their blog belongs to and then visit other blogs. Post comments and then contact the blog owner. I like this method because similar blogs tend to attract the same targeted groups and thus are more likely to lead referrals. And by the way, bloggers could submit their blogs to directories and get more traffic.

  50. Another great list! Thanks Brian.

  51. I have made up a google group that has been designed to try and find all the ways to drive traffic to your site. Feel free to join and post whatever you like.

    http://groups.google.com/group/promotingyoursite

  52. Huge list of info, but is something I need, and for that I might say thanks.Now I’ll study this list for a few hours.

  53. quality content + time = traffic

  54. Does this stuff really work? We’ll see. ;)

  55. Nice articles. Greatly improve my knowledge here.

  56. My ever-so-slightly-satirical look at Promoting Your Website has proved useful for some. Of course, this isn’t me promoting myself here.. not at all!

  57. Another site that will help build more one way links to your website is http://www.contentpop.com

    Just submit your most interesting content, if it’s good, it will get traffic.

  58. i am going to study and study all these points till my eyes hurt and then i am going to use these points for the Malaysia My Second Home program website – http://www.mysecondhome.com.my/

  59. Thanks for tips

  60. Thanks a lot!

  61. Great tips! I´m using them myself for my blog Webmasterinfo! Thank´s

  62. Be linkable – Brian has already compiled the Ultimate Guide to “link baiting” here. Follow the instructions within.

  63. Driving increased website traffic gets my attention. Some interesting stuff on this page.

  88. i hve no website but am trying to find out about making money –getting paid for directing hits to other websites–i am totally in the dark about this–i think it is called web linking–i would have to learn how to make a website and all the rest–any advice on going about all this–from scratch–perhaps a good book–would be appreciated–as i said i am total neopphyte. hope to do this from outside united states

  89. […] came across an article on “How to Attract Links and Increase Web Traffic – The Ultimate Guide” written by Brian Clark who is better known as the “Copyblogger“ […]

  90. Very thorough list. I like these and have been seeing them around more and more.

    Once thing I will be curious to see more of in the future, is people giving more details in these lists than just the link and title of post.

  91. just awesome list, it will last days that I read that all. thanks

  92. Ready, set, BLOG! Best advice money didn’t have to buy especially since my webmaster is $75 per hour! Merci!!!

  97. Excellent post Brian. I have quite a few take awayes from this…

  98. Great list, At least give some idea to drive traffic

  99. great resources! I’m going to add this page to del.icio.us so I can come back later when I have time to get to all of these… that was your intention wasn’t it?

  100. I like this idea how to attract links to website. Keep in touch on great stuff.

  101. All SEO now is building links… Links matter more than content itself – content is hard to recognize as an original text without good incoming links. And Google can do nothing with this.

  102. Its wonderful, Sweet!

  103. Great article, I was reading and I can say that a lot of web marketing information are available through those links, specifically the SEOpedia one. This article describes very well the way to use titles and meta description tags, a good way to improve the visibility of a website in search engines.

  104. Thanks for the list Brian, I’ll be coming back here for days :)

  105. Wow, what a great compilation of resources! This will keep me very busy for weeks to come.

  106. Thanks for the list Brian. :)

  107. Great article and great resources. Thanks!

  108. Thanks for your useful link list.

  109. So much information, thanks alot for this list. Gonna check all those articles out for sure!

    Great work

  110. Thanks for the list!

  111. Thanks so much … However, most of the links refer to blogger sites. Can you offer some suggestions for increasing traffic to established sites with hundreds of pages and heaps of content?

  112. Thanks for the tip about lists, now I need to figure out a good way to implement it.

  113. Thanks for the tips and all of the links!

  114. Thanks for the info. It’s worth a try. WHen you have a page rank 1, you know i’m desparate

  115. For more traffic , try to submit to free directories and get more links related to your site. You can get idea from my site :

    http://www.agranews.com

    I think it will help you.
    Best wishes

  116. Wow, this is exactly what I was looking for to improve my website. Keep up the Good work Admin!

  117. Brian.. U have got an ultimate list in here dear.. Thanks.. am gonna book mark this page.!

  118. Do these “tips & tricks” apply to websites of the Asian variety? At the end of the day, do we get the traffic that we want and not just bursts of server crashing but no cash register ringing moments?

    http://www.entrepreneur.com.sg

  119. Great Post It Will Definitetly help me.

  120. I have been surfing the net in search of ways to build traffic to my blog. I’ll need weeks now to sift through all of these resources. Thanks for collating them. Happy new year.

  121. Awesome collection.All these are i think the best links at one place.Great job.I was looking for such a list for a long time.

  122. Hi, I’ve tried lots of tricks to increase my blog traffic: technorati, technorati tags, digg.com, traffic g, registering on blog listings like top blogs, etc. I find that as soon as I take a week off of posting, even though I have tons of content on my blog, my traffic drops off dramatically. http://jmorrow50.wordpress.com.

  123. You covered it all. Thanks for the source.

  124. Yes… a really useful list. Hope that it will help me to find some good ways to promote my blog. Thanks!

  125. After all this time still relevant.
    Speaking of which, I’m applying some of them tips as we speak ;-) Great blog!

  126. I have been using Google adwords and Yahoo search marketing to advertise my site http://www.collegecreditbuilder.com and have found that the keyword traffic is very expensive, but results in actual click-throughs, whereas the content match feature can burn through you daily budget with many clicks, but no actual click-throughs. I know there are click-fraud lawsuits pending, but it seems like something is still not right.

  127. A great resource for a new blogger such as myself. thanks for the content. keep up the great work!!!

  128. Page bookmarked for later use. This is a really great resource of informations.

  129. The only way is writing great content, no easy way out

  130. I think You forgot about this free web traffic guide or atleast I didn´t see it in the list.

    Warmly

    Thordur mocan

  140. Great Post! Will take the time to review and implement what you posted

  141. I know full-well how hard getting links to a site is and, in the end, you have to sit down and spend a fair amount of time ‘just doing it’.

    It’s worked for me and I’ve doubled my site’s traffic in the past month. Here are a few articles and resources I referenced:

    The term “link baiting” does have some negative connotation associated with it, but what is being implied accomplishes what is intended – relevant and qualified linking.
