Someone posted a comment on one of my articles at EzineArticles that I had written concerning the need to have a WordPress blog. The point made was that whether you have a WordPress blog or one of the other types of blogs, you still have to have traffic.
Now, traffic is a part of the formula that is necessary for the success of your Internet business. Without traffic you will have no sales. Without sales, you have no Internet business.
In this article I will talk about how to get links to your newly created WordPress blog. You see, if you just bought a brand new domain and created a WordPress blog on that domain you will not get any traffic unless you have links pointing to your blog. Remember, “no links equals no traffic”. Let me say it another way, you have got to get links pointing to your site or you will not succeed!
These links should be of the highest quality. If you get 25 links from sites that are not authority sites it will not do you much good. It would be much better to get 5 links from sites that have good page rank and are closely matched to the theme of your blog.
There are two ways to get these types of links. First, you can research the web and find high quality sites that are theme related to your theme and contact them asking for links to your site. Good luck with that, why would they want to link to your new page rank zero site?
I suggest that you build a “Blog Farm”. Your own blog farm has one distinct advantage of being under your complete control. Instead of having to go begging for links, you will have the ability to add a link from your blog farm to your new WordPress blog yourself. As a matter of fact, you will have the power to add a link to “any” new blog that you create in the future.
What happens is the link to your new WordPress blog draws the search engine spiders which is necessary in order for your blog to be listed in the major search engines, which are Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
I will go over the specifics of exactly “how” to construct a blog farm in my next article.
