Little Known Guerilla Tactics For Finding Link Partners

by John Gergye

Are you using these 3 little known ways to find link partners?

If not you should be. Since decent link popularity is a must if you want to rank well and get more traffic.

Not to mention sporting links from quality sites will not only juice your traffic but can boost your PageRank (PR) too. Which will help you rank higher in all important Google.

Now I'm sure you know this common way to find link partners.

Simply find one links page for a site in your niche. Then "mine" that for additional partners. Follow each link like a daisy chain and harvest all sorts of linking opportunities.

But you could also do this. Search for the primary keyword that describes your niche.

Say it was shoes. That search returned 12,300,000 search engine results pages (SERPS) from Google.

Surely that's too many to hand check for links pages.

Instead you're going to 'search within' all those listings returned for the keyword shoes. (Google's link for that is found way at the bottom of any page of listings.)

Here's all you do. Simply do a search within for terms like

"add url"
"submit url"
"add link"
"submit link"

and the like. Any of which suggests a site that is actively seeking link partners or has a links page, right?

Trying my luck with "add url" turned up 26,900 candidates. When you exhaust candidates for "add url" go to "submit url" and so on through a list of similar term.

Or you could do a 'search within' for site submission or links pages. You know, pages with names like:


Going for "links.html" I found 7,930 more potential partners.

All without even breaking a sweat.

If you want more variations, you could always replace the "html" extension with htm, shtml, asp, etc.

Okay but what if you take those same SERPS for shoes and do a 'search within' for known links manager software?

Like "Gossamer Threads Inc" for example? Pages found with that phrase signal the use of the links directory management program Gossamer Threads.

I gave it a shot and that 'search within' indicated 1,270 links pages.

Other possibilities would be

"Powered by WSN Links"
"links manager"
"links engine"

Getting the idea? Searching for any tell tale sign of some links manager software or script will turn up all sorts of linking partners too.

Yet say you run through all prospects for adding links pages, actual links pages, or links managers. Then what?

Simple. Should you exhaust all such possibilities for one keyword family expand to another. So after you run through the possibilities for "shoes" move on to a broader category like "clothing". Bam! You're back in the game.

Finally, if you somehow completely run out of link candidates, which may happen, reload. Start offering articles to high ranking sites without a links page to tap into those traffic streams.

Simply try any of these guerilla tactics and in most niches you'll soon be buried in potential linking partners.

Enough to keep you busy for weeks if not months. During which time your traffic and Page Rank will skyrocket. Rewarding you for your efforts with more sales.

Happy linking.
