2 places to Go Local: http://local.yahoo.com and http://register.local.com/free/update.aspx are both local searches that are ideal linking opportunities for small businesses. You get great links and you can draw some added local traffic from the many people who routinely use local searches to find local businesses. Yahoo Local includes customer reviews, maps and blogs as well. Local.com is a more straightforward listing, but does include business descriptions and you can search by zip code or city.
1 Link Site you should join is LinkedIn at www.linkedin.com. This professional networking website provides you with great access to thousands of other business professionals who are members of the network and allows you to connect with others through affiliations with companies, schools and universities you may have in common with other members. You can give and receive recommendations, discover business opportunities and create multiple links as a member. It’s free to sign-up and takes only minutes to get through the set up process. Look for me at my LinkedIn profile.
3 Blog Comment Right Here. Yep, all you have to do is add two comments to our site and your third comment (and every one after that), will get a “do follow” link right back to your site. Maybe you can even suggest a couple other places to get a decent link in 5 minutes or less!
