There is no better way to develop link popularity then by using step-by-step methods or guidance to attract inbound links than by becoming an authority within your niche. If you are using article writing as your primary means to attract links and subscribers this is easy to do. I personally submit 15 to 20 articles per day on several niche categories which in my market. Several of those categories I hold the number one authority position because I have submitted the most articles on that niche topic.
Once you have achieved this your readers and the market will see you as an expert in your niche or feel. If you are able to provide them with article content that solves a problem they are experiencing more than likely they will link to it from their blog or website, listed in a social bookmarking site or better yet send out a re-tweet through twitter. Each of these methods will attract a large amount of inbound links.
So how exactly do I do this? What are my methods to becoming an authority in each of my target niches?
Follow these steps:
1. Keyword research. Find out what words and phrases your niche audiences using when conducting searches on the top search engines like Google. By using the Google keyword tool you can easily find this information out. Strive to develop a list of 10 to 20 keywords and phrases in each of the categories you are targeting.
2. Article writing. By submitting keyword optimized articles to the top article directories online you can attract a large amount of inbound links and eventually link popularity. By looking at how many articles have been submitted by the top author within the categories you want to submit articles for you will know what topics to write on. Now the obvious takes over; writing more articles on that category than the top person. The easiest thing to do is find those categories within your niche with the lowest number of articles submitted. Focus your articles than around that topic and make sure that you are using the key words and phrases you developed in number one above when writing your titles and article content. Also make sure that you are writing about methods to solve a problem that your target market is experiencing. This is the information more than likely your readers will find it interesting and link to from their websites and blogs which will give you inbound links. Once you submitted enough of articles to claim the top spot in a category make sure you take advantage of that and list yourself as the number one author index category on whatever article directory it is. This will give you added the influence over your audience.
