Home Builder Links – “DoFollow” Tuesday

DoFollow ImageWelcome to “Do Follow” Tuesdays. To read what this is all about, you can check our announcement post

In summary, every Tuesday we pick a vertical market based on the number of votes a market receives at our Vertical Market Poll. This week it is the Home Builder market. We invite all of you out there to post in the comments a specific link building recommendation for the Home Builder market (a good directory, authority website, blog, link search, etc.). If it adds value, we will approve it, give you the credit and a “do follow” link to your site. However, we will just delete stupid, irrelevant, spammy comments – only truly useful information will be allowed. 

This week’s suggestion from our staff is on conducting searches for links.  This is often overlooked by SEO’s, maybe because it takes a little more work than some other link building efforts, but it can often turn up a hidden gem as seen in this post.  Here are three different Google search queries that you might want to try if you were looking for great places to get a link for a home builder site.

1) Take a look at the results for the most basic of searches "home builder links".  Notice the 2nd listing is for constructionstate.com – an nice little niche directory dedicated to this industry.  There are more than 3,000 search results to check out.

2) Libraries are good links to have.  Check out the results from "home builder" library site:.us  About the 5th one down is this link, get any ideas from it?

3) Well we did.  How about looking for sponsor opportunities like this "texas home builders” sponsorship

There are many, many more creative searches that you can deploy to find linking opportunities (new home builders, custom home builders, luxury home builders, etc).  Admittedly, it takes time and many lead to dead ends or overdone reciprocal link pages, but you will find plenty of good links if you stick with it.

OK, now lets hear from the rest of you. Place your advice for link building for the home builder market in the comments below. Those that are accepted will get a nice "do follow" link from us.

Make sure you sign up for our email or RSS feed so that you are alerted every time a new niche market is covered. Even if we are not focusing on your niche, you just might see a pretty creative idea that will trigger an thought for your market.

    This looks like a fairly new directory but it looks well done and was 15th on a search for “free directories real estate builders”
