Burn All Sources of Retreat



What are you willing to give in order to get what you want? Do you even know what you want? Learning and implementing all the tips and techniques to have a successful website is a good practice. However, a person will find themselves quickly burnt out and on the verge of quitting if they don’t know the why behind all of their effort.

In the self development world knowing your “why” becomes common advice with all the “gurus.”  The redundancy can minimize the powerful impact such advice has in a person’s life. Don’t underestimate the power of having a desire that has a pull on your life driving you into taking the action, sacrificing comfort, and persisting through challenges.

In the life changing book Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill relates the following story “A long while ago, a great warrior faced a situation which made it necessary for him to make a decision which insured his success on the battlefield. He was about to send his armies against a powerful foe, whose men outnumbered his own. He loaded his soldiers into boats, sailed to the enemy’s country, unloaded soldiers and equipment, then gave the order to burn the ships that had carried them. Addressing his men before the first battle he said, “You see the boats going up in smoke. That means that we cannot leave the shores alive unless we win! We now have no choice-we win-or we perish!” They won.”

An attitude begins to consume your every thought and action when the reason for accomplishing what you want is powerful. The soldiers in the battle related in the previous story had a very compelling why; to survive. When you eliminate any other option other than success the result is inevitable. Sacrificing and persistence becomes infinitely easier when you stake your entire future on getting what you want and leave no source for retreat.

What are you leaning on as a “plan b?” What ships are you leaving in the harbor to protect yourself from getting out there and achieving the results you desire?

Building a successful site and backlinks is not always a glamorous process which requires that you know the big reason for investing resources. Realize that you can accomplish what you want without knowing your “why” but it is incredibly more difficult and less rewarding. Once you’ve decided the result you want to achieve leave no room for escaping without getting the outcome desired.

Top 10 Backlinking Mistakes

Backlinking Mistake

Search engines have identified key features that establish page rank. Backlinking is a process that envelopes a significant portion of securing high ranking in the searches. Unfortunately, there is an abundance of suggestions and techniques to follow. Sifting through all the advice becomes straightforward when you understand the mistakes to avoid. Would that be helpful?

Mistake #1: Anchor Text

The clickable text in a hyperlink is anchor text. Commonly the practice is to include keywords as the hyperlink pointing back to a page on your site. For example, consider that you have a website about Sports Utility Vehicles and you have decided upon the following keywords:

luxury sports utility vehicles

used sports utility vehicles

crossover sports utility vehicle

mid size sports utility vehicle


Creating anchor text with all of the aforementioned keywords is okay but the mistake occurs when there is no natural variety to the links pointing back to your website. Overusing these words is unnatural and is a clear indicator to search engines that you are making attempts to climb ranking making your site look spammy. Add variety to the anchor text you are using by substituting with click here, a URL, and phrases that contain the keyword.


Mistake #2: Relevancy

Websites that are similar to yours provide great value for backlinking. In the past search engines looked at quantity over quality for links. Webmasters would spread their URL’s across as many sites as possible without any consideration to relevancy. With recent algorithm updates it is far more important to build links that come from websites that are relevant to yours. The mistake comes in thinking that quantity is of higher importance to search engines.

Mistake #3: Distribution

Pointing nearly all links to your homepage is a common mistake and appears very artificial. Manipulating the ranking of your site can get the webpage penalized. Internal and external linking needs to be natural and should be distributed across many pages of the site.

Mistake #4: Rate

Remember you want backlinking to be natural or appear that way to the search engines. The rate at which you acquire links is an indicator of how you are receiving them. When a webmaster uses software the rate can be dramatic and unnatural. Search engines will penalize your site for rapid link building.

Mistake #5: Quality

What makes a link of more quality than another? As previously mentioned the rate at which you acquire links or even the quantity at this point doesn’t have the impact it used to in ranking. Poor quality can get into a number one spot with Google for a short time but you will find the site penalized and quickly drop if not blacklisted from the search results. Following the previously mentioned ideas such as the rate, relevancy, anchor text, and distribution are all factors of quality couple this with a high page rank website and you’ll achieve long term success.

Mistake #6: Homepage

The initial impression a customer sees on your website is typically the homepage. It goes without saying that the homepage is a critical segment of a webpage. However, having all of your backlinks pointing to your homepage does not appear natural. Spread the links across all pages on your site and realize the benefit of driving traffic to all areas of the site.

Mistake #7: No-Follow Sites

It is commonly misunderstood that no-follow sites have no value for link building. However, no – follow sites offer value in links but do not pass Page Rank. Proactively seeking these no – follow sites is not a waste of your time but rest assured there is value because page rank is not the only factor in search engine optimization.

Mistake #8: Outsourcing

Using software for backlinking creates a large number of links in a relatively short period of time and loses the natural strategy as mentioned beforehand. Although, paying an SEO company or individual to build backlinks can be very effective.

Mistake #9: Uniformity

There is a variety of techniques that can be implemented which include; guest posts, article marketing, forums, press releases, etc. The mistake comes in utilizing only one of the techniques and not getting link diversity. For example, posting a bunch of content on an article site as your only strategy won’t provide diversity. Rather, forum posting, article marketing and guest posts can all be used to get the backlinks your site needs.

Mistake #10: Exchange

Exchanging links in itself is not particularly a bad practice. The issue arises when there is no relevancy, they are acquired too rapidly, and no diversity. If you want to implement the exchange make sure that they are quality backlinks.

By avoiding the preceding pitfalls you can accelerate the success of your website and results. Start by implementing the techniques that are contrary to the mistakes. All the best wishes in rising to the top of the search engines.

Even though there are a lot of strategies that can build links relatively quickly it is the approaches that offer minimal or no work involved that can be misleading. Do not be fooled into thinking that there is not work involved in building a successful site by creating valuable links and content. An element that can be missed by many is the structure of their website in attracting links.

People turn to the internet for information in most cases. They are searching for something and want to be able to get what they need as quickly as possible with the greatest value.

Unfortunately, most of us are not mind readers and have no way of predicting what each visitor is going to want. Luckily there is a solution and it can help visitor’s access information rapidly while creating backlinks for you in the process.


Does it sound too good to be true? If a visitor has landed on your page it is because they have been searching for a topic around the subject matter you have devoted the website towards. Now you have the advantage of providing the visitor with a hand selection of the top information around this subject to supply the answer they are looking for.

Individuals realize that if they have a question to a problem than most of their associations likely have the same problem and want an answer. Collaboration can be a natural result with other webmasters by offering a simple direction to obtaining solutions to their problem as well. The solution is building a resource page into the structure of your site.

A resource page is a webpage on the site that has links, articles, or links to articles hand selected and placed into one area.

Increase Backlinks by Understanding How People Read a Website

Creating - Increase - BacklinksIf you want to increase backlinks understanding how a person reads a website provides an edge in provoking the visitor to take the action you desire. When a visitor lands on your site there is an end goal that you want them to perform, whether it’s clicking something, making a purchase or simply adding a comment to an article. Understanding that a website offers an interactional experience with the user suggests the relevant importance of the site and content arrangement. In general, an individual is searching for a solution or answer so they don’t want to spend a great deal of time on a webpage.

Creating a certain response for the visitor by structuring content in a way that allows them to scan quickly and get the key points they are after will keep them on the webpage longer. After all, the longer a user stays on the site the more likely they are to perform the action you want. How often do you find lists, steps/tips or bullet items in an article online? Do you think that is by accident? Research has showed the process visitors use when scanning a website and it indicates that formatting content in a way that provides important information in an easy to find structure allows the user to read relevant information quickly. In other words, you are offering the solution or answer they want in a rapid and straightforward manner. Of course you don’t want every bit of writing on your site to be a list, tips, or bullet points.

Adding more white space to the content that is added to the site helps break up the reading in a similar fashion as bullet points, permitting the reader to access relevant information much faster. Spacing your paragraphs by making them smaller with only one important idea in each provides the effective structure wanted by the reader. Writing at times can become “wordy” because the writer wants to get their point across and can add a lot of detail or words to properly communicate the idea. Reducing the words and detail that goes into the material can add extra white space as well. Once you become aware of the structuring it is not a best practice to produce a bunch of promotional articles.

Again, being familiar with the fact that individuals are typically trying to get an answer or solution offers you the correct approach for providing information instead of a sales letter. People prefer to be massaged into a sale as opposed to getting in their face by writing a promotional article. In some circumstances website owners are successful with sales copy as their content but it is on a landing page and they have a lot of experience in writing such material. Presenting information in the right way can lead to a sale, click or whatever the end goal is for the visitor.

Writing can be hard work but don’t get your feelings hurt because the reader doesn’t want to read every written word. Take advantage of this new knowledge to develop material that is customized for a quick and easy route to finding answers and solutions and eventually leading to the performance from the visitor that you desire.

Building Backlinks Through Credibility With Good Content Writing

Writing content that is credible and offers value to the reader can be a tremendous resource for building backlinks naturally. Individuals want to find information that is trustworthy from a reliable source. Understand that it is just as important that other website owners want to link to other sites with credible content. Spending the time to create articles that provide a resource with well thought out, researched and grammatically unblemished information earns its reward in the audience and links that you’ll receive. As the author of the content and someone working to earn money online it is necessary to become recognized in the marketplace. Credibility does not have to be obtained only through your writing as a medium.

A good place to start building credibility to obtain backlinks and a responsive audience is by adding contact information and an “about me” page. Someone that is apathetic in their writing or is looking to take advantage of you is most likely not going to take the time to add their contact information or give details about themselves. The internet can at times be very impersonal which presents its own challenges for drumming up business and converting to sales. However, an about me page adds a bit of a personal touch. Adding contact information easy to access shows an element of vulnerability and opens the lines of communication almost instantly granting trust with visitors. If you actually provide contact information than you must respond otherwise you’ll be like a lot of other cold site owners that are going through the motions.

Exorbitant promises causes suspicion for the reader and should be avoided. The idea is to become relatable as well as offer practical advice. People are inundated with offers and advertisements making them razor sharp in identifying hype. Attempting to find words that closely describe the message you are trying to convey supplies content that is more credible. Allow people to decide for themselves by not destroying the credibility in your writing.

Spelling and grammar illustrate to the reader that you care about the information you are providing. There is no excuse for misspelled words and even grammar can be a simple detail that is managed by the spelling and grammar tool provided in word programs. Suprisingly, a lot of individuals pay close attention and notice simple spelling mistakes. Proofreading your articles is another simple step to catching grammar and spelling issues that the tool may miss. Using affect and effect can be missed by the tool and is something that you can catch in proofreading.

Taking a little extra time in your writing to ensure that there is an image of credibility portrayed through the content provided can get readers coming back. As an added bonus people are always looking for content that is credible and informative to backlink on their sites.
