Link Back

Many people do not know about or take advantage of link backs to increase page views and traffic. The wonderful thing about link backs is that they are free! With a little bit of time each day, you can build up a huge link back network for your articles, eBooks, websites, business sites, blogs, squidoo lenses, MySpace and more.

What exactly is a link back?

A link back is rather simple. It is a link back to your specific page on the Internet. When the search engines do their crawling and such, the greater the number of link backs to your page means the better chance the search engines have of finding you.

How do you link back?

Visit article directories and submit several free articles. In the byline area and the author area do a link back to a specific article or to your index page of articles. You can also link back to any other thing such as eBooks, blogs, businesses and so forth.

Visit guest books. Make a relevant (not spam) comment about the site and include your URL address for the link back.

Visit blogs on a related topic. Comment intelligently on the blog and leave a link back in your signature.

Remember not to spam because people will become irritated and delete your entries. You can also go to free link pages and other places on the Internet to build your link back network.

Read my article about article directories to learn more about them as a possible way to build literally thousands of link backs in a short time span.

3 websites to make money online.

1. Associated Content.

2. Cash Crate.

Let's begin with associated content. Associated content should be the number one stop for those people who frequently ask themselves, how I could make money fast.

You may be surprised to see how easy it has become to earn a part time income through writing for Associated Content.

The next site that we will talk about is Cash Crate. Cash Crate is a site that pays you to take surveys. They may pay anywhere from a dollar to possibly a hundred dollars, just for you to take a survey.

Doesn't sound too bad now does it? The reason they pay you to complete surveys is that companies are willing to shell out loads of cash for in-depth information from their consumers to find out exactly what they word on the street is about their product or services.

They even have a daily survey on the homepage that is guaranteed to make you some extra income; the guaranteed survey on the homepage pays $0.80. It may not seem like much but do the math, over a 30 day time period. That is almost $30 extra dollars just for taking surveys.

Are you still asking yourself that question, how do I make money fast? Well if writing tons of articles and taking surveys doesn't really sound like your cup of tea, there is always the alternative of Forum Booster.
Forum Booster is a website that pays you $0.10 for each post you make on a forum. This is great for those of us that would be searching and posting on forums either way, why not get paid for it? If you can post sixty posts in 1 hour, you can make $6, which is not that bad for earning money online.

It may not be minimum wage, but you have the advantage of being in the comfort of your own home. You can be in your pajamas sipping coffee while working on posting on these forums. Each post should be a minimum of 12 words, which is not difficult to do at all.

Overall there are tons of ways to make money quickly online but these are just the tried and true and the best of the best.
