So How Do You Increase Your Rankings?
It's all in the communications! Back links (links that another website points toward yours) determine your rank and the more you have, the more currency for your PR (page ranking)
Ways to Increase Back Links (outside of paying for them which the search engines can detect and frown upon)
1. Join forums related to your website niche with a link to your website with your signature, which not only adds back links but serves to promote your site as well.
2.Publish articles. The bylines or source box brings in traffic and new leads. In the source box, place the website title and a link to the site with a catchy headline or promotion to draw the readers in)
3.Publish an ezine with links for viewers to come to your site. Submit information about your ezine to an ezine directory which links to your website.
4.Register with various search engine directories which not only give you a free link to your website, but also help to list your site higher on that search engine. This is usually a free process.
5.Link to related websites
