Links, links and links! That’s what everyone is looking for so that they can increase their search engine rankings and traffic. Some people increase their links by purchasing them or even linkbaiting, but why not through widgets?
Widgets have been a hot topic for the last few months because they are a great source of links. Just think about all the blogs that use a flickr widget to show off their pictures. With over 1 million backward links according to Google it shows that widgets have been really effective for flickr.
If you want to increase your backward links through widgets
you have a few options:
- You can create widgets for your website and distribute them. For example, Problogger lets readers put his content on their site through a simple widget.
- Create widgets for popular services such as YouTube, Digg and flickr and distribute them through your website. This can be very effective because these services have large user bases who would love to use your widget. All you have to do is embed a link to your site within every widget.
Do you know of any other unique ways to increase your link popularity?
