Using Synonym Sites

Well, it goes like this; you search the sites which are most relevant to your product but not in direct competition to yours.

Event Conference Links

The work of securing links for your website is not restricted to just internet.

You have to find out about business events happening shortly and send a request if you want to speak on that event. If you want to host an event, you have to use Meetup to meet your requirements. Next, find out the bloggers who would be covering those vents or the company website and mail them with slides along with a link attached to your website.

Creating Content That Benefits Users

There is no denying that after designing, development, SEO, all that matters for a user is what he reads in the content you provide. He hardly cares for the designing part and is more focused on how he can benefit from it. It might be something useful for their business or entertaining in some way.

Create Your Own Keywords

This is something most of the SEO professionals are unaware about. The simple reason being that it appears to make no sense but the reality is that it makes complete sense to the search engines! When you create a keyword, the only person competing with you is nobody but you!
