Free Link Building Through Social Networks

by on February 19, 2010

I’ve been planning on writing my own free program for making money online through building successful websites for a while now.  I keep getting distracted by the crap that tends to derail all great ideas.  Creating a site and program that is worthwhile with real tutorials takes time and investment and I keep going back to add content and improve my current money making sites over starting a new one that helps you do it.

Once you put in the time and effort to create a couple even mildly successful websites, it acts like a snowball gathering mass as it rolls downhill.

You can leverage your existing sites by starting new sites in similar niches and linking to them from your power sites to jump start them.  But what if you have no power sites and are starting from scratch?  Is there an easy way to get started and build a power site, without spending lots of money or spending lots of time trying to build links?

To answer that question I bit the bullet a few months ago and started a brand new site around a brand new topic completely unrelated to anything I’d done before.

I’m not going to link to this new site from any of my power sites. I want to see just how well it does doing link building ONLY through free link submission at social bookmarking and social networking sites.

So far so good.  I’m just over two months into the new site, have only written five articles and only built links through free social link submission to places like Digg, Mixx, Propeller, Fark, Reddit, etc.  I’m getting about 20 visitors a day to it from search engine keywords, and another 5 or so from direct links from the social network sites.  It’s in a pretty tame niche, so no big payoff for a couple of visits, but that’s enough to pull a couple of dollars a day from advertising and affiliate links

Is it going to make me rich?  Not yet at least.  The idea is to build a site pretty much on autopilot, spending an hour or two a week creating new articles, eventually building the site to a point where it’s making a few hundred dollars a month.  How many sites would you need to make to replace your current working salary at a couple hundred dollars a month each?  10? 20? 30?  At a couple of hours each per week, that’s probably less than you are working now.

But it doesn’t end there.  Eventually after a couple of years it’s far easier to build on your existing sites and make them more profitable. What about if they were making a couple THOUSAND a month each, how many sites would you need then?

I’ll keep you posted on when my new program will be ready.  Click the “Subscribe” link at the top right to make sure you don’t miss out.
