"Linking Tactics to Boost Your Website with Free Traffic!"

1.  Make Use of Articles

This amazing viral tactic often produces powerful results.
Write regular articles or tips about your industry and submit them to article listing directories. Get them published in other ezines. Get them posted on other websites. Get them everywhere!

Make sure your articles always contain your website url in their ‘resource box'. So with them listed on high traffic directories, they can help you ranked better in the search engines too. Use a resource box like this with links to your web site and your own ad that must remain with the article when posted:

Similarly, thousands of ezine publishers hungry for content may select your articles for publication in their ezines, or posting on their own sites. Your articles can spread virally this way, through your single action of posting to the directories.

Some of the major directories to submit your articles to:

http://www.bestezines.com
http://www.goarticles.com
http://www.connectionteam.com
http://www.homebiztools.com
http://www.addto.com
http://www.ezinearticles.com

2.  Make Use of Forums

Do a Search for forums related to your business' targeted markets. Join these forums and participate actively!
Most discussion forums allow you to include your signature file with your posting. In your signature file, you should add your url with the prefix ‘http://'.
For example, I may list mine as:
John Overall
Smart Bomb Enterprises/Fire Dragon Hosting
http://www.smartbomb.ca

Every time you participate and make a post, you get your url published in the forums.
Besides attracting fellow participants to your website, your posts get archived AND indexed by the search engines.
This site has a pretty good listing of the major forums dedicated to different categories from internet marketing to general business.

So the truth is, you will not only make a contribution that might help someone but also drive more traffic to your website every time you participate in the forums. What fun!

3.  Make Use of Testimonials

Another great technique to get your url on other websites comes from giving honest feedback and testimonials.
Whenever you have a positive experience with a product or service, voice your thoughts! Write an email to the webmaster and tell them how much you enjoy using their products. Tell them to publish your feedback as a testimonial on their websites.
 
Most webmasters value testimonials as it adds credibility and enhances their product or service. More often than not, they would not hesitate to post your testimonial on their sites. All you've to do is request that a link back to your website be included.
 

4. Make Use of Directories and Link Exchanges

Today it is not uncommon when someone does a search in Google to find that the top spots are taken up not by the web site or business you might be looking for but by smaller regional directories.  It is a good idea to join the smaller directories all they as in return most of the time is a reciprocal link back.
I would recommend starting with my directory here at http://www.canadianwebdirectory.com
These tips when put into regular usage will bring you results.
