Write articles directly related to the subject of your site and submit them to article directories. Then post these articles to your blog or article page. This is a must! When the article directories publish your articles, place the URL to your article on theses directory sites on your article on your site. This creates effective back links. You need to write a fresh and informative article at least once a week.
