Get High Quality One-Way Links With Pligg Submissions

The evolution of the Internet as a means for conducting business and making transactions has seen a tremendous growth over recent years. Many independent professionals, entrepreneurs and small business owners have plunged into the online business world and made a name for themselves, addressing either a local audience or a global one. The good news is that there is still a lot of money to be made using the Internet as a means of either setting up an online business or advertising for your existing commercial activity. However, as we all know, reaching the targeted audience and getting the message out there is of the utmost importance. And when it comes to online marketing, getting high quality traffic and one-way links to your web site is vital. This can be achieved in a number of ways, all of which fall under the large category of search engine optimization services.

One way of getting high quality one-way links to your web site, whose efficiency has already been proven, is Pligg submission. For those of you who are not familiar with Pligg sites, you should know that these sites are communities dedicated to social voting, which are very similar to social bookmarking sites in all aspects, except for their size. Pligg sites are social media sites that can be created by anyone who wants to build a community around a specific area and target a particular audience. At this point, Pligg sites are among the fastest and most effective ways of launching a new social media website.

Going back to search engine optimization and the part that Pligg submission plays in it, you should also know that links are submitted to Pligg sites and users vote for them according to their preference. This translates into exposure and visibility, which results in one-way links to your site.

However, as you might have guessed, there’s also a catch to Pligg submission. Thousands of sites are already being powered by this open source content management system. Most Pligg sites are not worth submitting to, as their future is questionable at most. As with all the other submissions that help drive traffic and improve your site’s rankings, such as social bookmarking submission, web directory submission, article submission, etc., Pligg submit must be carefully performed. It usually takes a SEO expert to be able to tell which are the best Pligg sites where submission really pays off. Moreover, this SEO tool will only work to your advantage if submission is done manually and to a couple hundred Pligg sites.

Pligg submit is also a very efficient way for a newly-developed web site to be indexed within a shorter time frame. Furthermore, Pligg submission is a very good linking strategy, as it allows the building of links for the inner pages, also known as deep links. This eventually translates into better rankings with the major search engines.

Where to Share Your Quality Content

There is no doubt that if you can create quality content you want to get it out there and eyeballed by as many people as possible – even better if the owners of those eyeballs are likely to be your target market.

Not only can you increase visits to your website and hence increase conversions, but you can enhance loyalty to your products and services, validate your industry position and boost brand awareness.

So where are the best places to put your stuff?

As with all marketing you need to know your demographic and relate that to the kind of content you are creating. Certain sites on the net are going to attract specific users – your first task is to determine where your likely buyers are hanging out.

… and you are not going to be short of choices, let’s take a look:

Social sites

Social media has transformed the way we communicate, access information, buy and sell and waste our time. Each social media site has a slightly different angle and therefore attracts either a unique type of user or is used for specific purposes. Sites such as Facebook and Twitter can be great for your business page and ads but largely they have a social slant. So remember this when posting. This is not really the place for describing your latest product and super offers. But an article which will be of interest to your industry with links to your site and services can be really effective.

The eyes have it

The internet now is a very visual place to be. We all love videos and graphics and according to a recent survey by Ipsos OTX pictures are the most likely type of content to be shared. So make sure your articles either have graphics or videos to hold that dwindling attention span on a Monday morning. Top sites to share pictures are Instagram, Flickr and Pinterest.

The professional angle

When that article needs to be consumed by a professional audience you need to be thinking LinkedIn or even Google+. The former also has great group sections which focus on any subject, industry or niche topic you like. This ensures your article is likely to be read by your target market who are interested in niche subjects.

Here is the news

Who better to share your content with than current buyers or people who have subscribed to your online services? Through emails or frequent newsletters you can keep your loyal audience updated with articles which will specifically interest them and instigate further sales and brand awareness.

Share and link at the same time

The most effective way to gain links for your website is through guest blogs or business articles. If you liaise with the webmaster of another website (within the same industry but not a competitor) he/she may welcome an article on his/her site. As well as creating extra shared content you are also creating what could be a very powerful link.

Specialised content

There are also some great sites set up for all your specialist content. Why not use that recent training presentation on PowerPoint as a marketing tool? SlideShare is very popular and set up to meet this eventuality. Are you a bit of a designer at heart? Infographics are really big at the moment and can turn boring dull info into a cool event, Visual.ly could be the site you are looking for.

Article sites

There are many article sites that will allow you to submit your high quality articles, which will give you more exposure, more credibility and more traffic back to your website. Some are more strict than others so make sure you read their “article submission rules”.

One of the rules is, no direct selling, however… you are able to add your personal bio where you can include a FREE give away.

You can see an example of mine in the resource box below.

Google news

Google news feeds will reach an international audience. Readers can filter feeds exactly to the news topics they want to so they know they will receive news about their favourite topics. You can apply to get your articles on Google news here.

As I always say, get out there and “expose yourself” metaphorically speaking, of course!!
