How to buy cheap links

Standard

One of the most important things in SEO is link bait, or the way that you acquire links to your site. There are many ways to do that like directory submissions, forum posts, submitting to social bookmarks, etc.

Of course besides free ways there are several paid options to link build your site. The problem is that in most cases you have to pay on monthly/yearly basis in order to keep your link alive, or otherwise you will loose the link and the ranking that it is giving to your site.

The solution to this problem came from the permanent link sales. Buying a permanent link always have less risk, and after all a SEO campaign should not have residual expenses but residual traffic 🙂

There are several ways to get permanent links, but as there is no automated solution/marketplace like text link ads, you should search yourself for the best deals. Of course there are plenty of webmaster forums out there that can help you with this process.

Finally I will give you one great deal on permanent text links which comes from webdigity’s donation page. The page is a pagerank 4, and as it links to the top donators web sites it is a good deal for $1 or so 🙂

Are you looking for your next web hosting?

Standard

Looking for a web hosting partner is usually a very hard task. This is because there are so many web hosting companies out there, and in most cases you are not able to know how good a company is before you use their services. An example of the problems that may occur is the recent downtime of the online marketing blog which was down for about 18 hours when their hosting provider decided to stop serving them…

Personally I have changed a lot of hosting partners in order to find someone that I can trust. There are many companies that have serious downtimes, others have hidden charges, etc. So when you are looking for web hosting the goal is to find a serious company which is in business for a long time and have no downtime. Of course your web hosting provider should have enough bandwidth to serve your sites fast.

I guess those are the problems that real metrics thought and found a great solution. The solution sounds simple but technically is not. They have bought hosting accounts from several providers, and they run several tests that indicate how good a hosting service is. So in webdigity’s web hosting comparisons you can look for your next web hosting partner with the minimal risk that you could take.

Enjoy 🙂

Php code to retrieve your alexa rank

Standard

Before some time I was looking for a script that can grab any domain’s alexa ranking. This task looks easy so I guess there should be a free code snippet somewhere that deals with it. Well the funny thing is that it is not so easy to grab your rank programatically so I guess that is the reason that people sell such scripts for $10 – $30.

So as I don’t like paying for stuff like that I wrote a simple function that grabs any domain’s alexa rank and return it so you can use it in your apps. You can get the snippet from here :

It requires to be member of webdigity (free) but I guess it is better than paying for it. Right? 🙂
