Link popularity is one of the most important SEO tools that everyone who wants to reach the top of the search engines needs to pursue as much as possible. Link building, which is the process of getting inbound links to your sites from other internet sites, is an extremely important criterion, along with keywords, that search engines use for deciding where a certain website will feature for a particular keyword search. If you are a webmaster who is still unclear about how placing text links to your site is helpful, then read on for the 5 main reasons why you should invest your time and money into link popularity.

1. The first and most direct effect of link popularity for your site is that traffic to your website increases considerably with every well placed link. This is because each and every link acts as an advertisement for your website, and since in most cases, a link is created along with a recommendation, you start getting a lot of relevant traffic that is redirected from the sites carrying your links. Since you are not required to pay for link creation, all this accounts for a large amount of effective yet free advertising.

2. Link popularity is one of the main criteria that Google and other search engines use for deciding upon the ranking of a web page in search engine results. The number of links to your site that exist on related websites and pages is also an important figure used for the calculation of your Google Pagerank. The more back links that you have, the higher your PageRank can be provided the links are coming from high page rank pages.

3. Link popularity can be directly related to your website’s popularity, especially if the links have been created for free. When viewers see links to your site on other sites, then they start looking upon your website as a trustworthy source of information and products. You get established as an expert instead of just being another website. This is especially true if you post your links on blogs, ezines and forums. In the virtual world, gaining this trust can lead to high conversions on your site.

4. A large number of text links back to your site all over the internet actually increase the value of your website. If you some day plan to sell your site to a buyer, then you will get a much higher price for a site that has a number of back links as compared to one that has none.

5. All the advertising and reputation building that link popularity does for you eventually gets reflected where it matters most-the bottom line. Whether you are a website offering information or products, you will undoubtedly start getting higher traffic and conversions proportional to the amount of text links that you have managed to spread in virtual space.

If you are unclear on how increase your link popularity, there are many different companies available on the internet today that are ready and able to help!

Fitness Information Should be Free!

On January 4, 2010, in Freebies, by entmind

What the web is for!

Hi there, I am into information, so when I was first introduced to the idea of the internet all those years ago, I was thinking, damn what a great idea!

Although more and more these days I search for something I really want to know only to be bombarded with false sites offering me nothing more than my search query spat back at me and then a whole bunch of sales and endorsements.

So finally, with the help of my friend and fellow sports and fitness enthusiast we decided to get pro active and quit our whining. We are both huge fans of personal fitness, but from quite different sides of the arena, the only thing we share is a love of water sports i.e. surfing and diving.

My friend is a Bodybuilder with over 15 years in the sport, runs his own supplement company and has a wealth of knowledge in the supplement, dieting and muscle development fields, his knowledge comes from years of experimentation on the latest supplements, diets and training techniques, like me he never just settles for what he knows, he is always out looking for the next thing, the perpetual thirst for knowledge.

Me on the other hand have always been more endurance and adventure based in my training pursuits, with a long history of nearly 14 years of surfing, white water kayaking, mountain biking (downhill). Never really looked to bulk up much, just enough to look good and have the strength I need to enjoy the sports I love. Training is not even slightly enjoyable, I am only into doing, for my friend the training is great fun, hard work but good fun.

We were sitting there one day talking about this internet problem after the gym when it hit us, there are so many different people training for so many different reasons, why not make a web site with a broad range of good information that people can access without being bombarded with ales pitches , after all that’s what we want when we search the web, so we did it, our site is called INFORM 4 FREE and the name is pretty elf explanatory, information about getting inform and its all free. No endorsements, No sales, just great content and tips on Training, Supplements, yoga, beauty, muscle development, diet and general health.

INFORM 4 FREE was first launched on September 29th 2007, starting at a mere 40 pages, but we are scouring all useful information that is related to the above categories to update it daily, it is more than our work it is our passion.

We plan on adding a mail service to INFORM 4 FREE in October of 2007 where people can write articles or tips or advice on either Training, Supplements, yoga, beauty, muscle development, diet and general health. And if we like what we read we will publish it on our site and share it with the world.

Our goal at INFORM 4 FREE is simple, we wish to create the largest internet database on all aspects of sports, fitness and health so that anyone who wants to get in form can get informed and achieve their personal Training, Supplements, yoga, beauty, muscle development, diet and general health goals sooner and more effectively

Thank you for taking the time to read this article
