With all of the recent changes that have come from Google tweaking their algorithms for their searches, it's no wonder that professionals and businesses altogether become very frustrated. Google is always changing their practices to make sure that "spam" content isn't going to the top of their searches, some of the top ways before were buying bad links and using them to inflate your link building instead of doing it all organically.
All of these constant changes also means that you have to keep track of all of the rules so you don't get the knock down from the top page. Usually that means taking the time to stay constantly updated on all of the Google changes, until now. Instead of frantically watching Google's blog for any news, or any other online news source, for updates on the latest algorithm changes respectively known as Panda and Penguin, you can just simply use these five easy steps that will always guarantee organic link building that is perfectly legit and safe for your SEO.
Step 1: Sharing Is Caring
One of the most simple ways of getting some organic link building going on is simply sharing your content writing to as many outlets as possible. This doesn't mean spamming out your link to any and every source you can find, but instead cultivating a list of places that you know your content will do swimmingly and also will be well received. Be it forums or blogs that you frequent, make it count with your sharing. Of course, you should also share your content on all of the social circuits like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and even Pinterest.
Step 2: Create Networks
This one is very connected to step one, because it was just mentioned how you need to cultivate networks instead of just simply spamming your content to every single place that will have you. Creating networks means taking the time to make connections with people online through forums, blogs, groups on social networks, and much more. Become a valuable asset and then dish out your links so people will trust your content and have natural link building going on.
Step 3: Utilize Baby Sites
No, not sites about babies, but budding content creators with fresh and new websites that are looking for some link building and recognition. These will strongly help with your organic link building because the site is looking for new content and will continue to grow, making it easier for people to find more about your business and land on your site.
Step 4: Consistently High Quality Content
While always trying to find new avenues for your current content, remember that you need to stay on top of your game and make sure that you're continuing your content efforts through highly relevant and original blog writing, articles, press releases, and whatever else that might help you in the long run. It might seem like a pain to always be on top of creating content, but it is a must for all of this to work properly.
Step 5: Keep The Cycle
Repeat, repeat, repeat. It's all about cycles, even with all of these algorithm changes, and that also means keeping a routine with your organic link building. While it is perfectly fine to add on new steps for a quicker method of link building, make sure that you stick to a plan and make only major tweaks when it is warranted. Things will start to make sense and start to have a groove, it's not all just SEO chaos.
