Sunday Morning SEO: A Simple Way to Create Linkworthy Content

Creating content that attracts links is one of the most efficient ways to build links. Link building is usually a time consuming task so anything that makes it easier is a welcome strategy.

If you read about linkworthy content, you’ll often find articles about the qualities the content should have. For example, some SEO experts talk about using humor or controversy. Others say you should be the first to scoop the latest news while there’s another camp that recommends giveaways and contests.

While these tips can definitely help, I favor a more pragmatic approach. I like to look at the content in my niche (including my own) that’s already getting links and then create similar content. I like this tactic because it takes a lot of the guesswork out of the equation.

What’s Already Working?

First, check out your referral stats to see what types of content are already attracting links. Also, you can look at the trackbacks in your comment section.

A couple weeks ago, I did a quick scan of my stats and found that 90% of my natural links were pointing to a certain kind of resource post. With this information in mind, I started publishing more of these posts. As a result, my links and traffic have gone up significantly.

Second, when examining the links of competitors, look at the blogs with mid-level traffic instead of the super popular blogs. The A-listers tend to get links because of the sheer size of their audience even if their content is not particularly link worthy.

Once you’ve looked at a couple blogs, you should have a good idea of what attract links in your niche. Then, publish similar content and you’ll be on your way towards a strong link building foundation.

    I agree with the author that we need to see which type of content gets the maximum hit … but mostly the titles/headlines do a great job in prompting the click. Anything related to food, marriage and health will get more hits than any other content but to prompt the click, the news headline should be provoking/catchy…

    The rejection of a break up can really hurt. It’s not uncommon for many of us to feel that our relationships are one of the basic foundations of our lives. When your girlfriend tells you that she wants out and you suddenly find yourself single, it can really make you question a lot of things.
    Maybe you realized that you made some serious mistakes in your relationship and you want to make things right,air jordan pas cher. But how can you tell if your ex-girlfriend still like you or if you still have a shot with her,casque dr dre? Here are a few signs your ex wants you back:
    First, keep in mind that, although most people are decent, some may try to take advantage of you. Be on the look out for obvious things that your ex-girlfriend might say or do to manipulate you or string you along. If she seems to want something from you, such as gifts or favors,basketszairjordans, but you really don’t seem to making any real progress with her, be very careful dealing with her.
    You have to look beyond surface things that she may say or do just to string you along. Take everything she says with a grain of salt,franklin marshall. So then, what should you look for?
    Look at her actions,abercrombie and fitch. While words can easily be faked, actions are much more difficult. Did she remember your birthday or do something special for you,abercrombie? Ask yourself if these are the kinds of things that someone who holds you in their thoughts? If they are,franklin and marshall, then you know that your ex-girlfriend is still thinking of you.
    If you still hold a special place in her thoughts,abercrombie paris, then you can bet that you still have a shot at getting her back. You see,abercrombie, as long as she associates any sort of emotion with you, then you can easily rekindle that spark,burberry. The only real problem comes when she seems indifferent or completely cold toward you.
    Also look at her body language. There is an entire science to body language, but I don’t think it is helpful to really obsess over every little fidget or detail,jordan pas cher. After all, one body language cue taken out of context can be completely misleading and won’t tell the whole story,burberry soldes.
    Instead what you want to do is focus on the over all picture. Ask yourself if this is the over all body language of a woman that is interested in you, or one who isn’t? It is a good sign if her body language is open and generally leaning toward you. It is a bad sign if she is closed off and pulling away from you.
    Use these signs to know if your ex wants you back or not. Remember though to watch out for cues that she might be trying to string you along or take advantage of you. If it ever seems like she likes you but you don’t ever seem to be making progress with her, then seriously question whether or not she may be trying to take advantage of you.Related articles: Easy methods to Win Back My Boyfriend The Power of Presence – Being Mindful franklinemarshallsoldesfr What Are the GNP’s Princip The consumer confidence index is based on a survey of 2,000 urban households across the country and gauges how people feel about the upcoming six months in terms of business conditions, household living standards and consumption expenditure as compared to now.
