Here’s another niche link building strategy guide that is similar to what I can put together for your company, or blog. I picked the health niche because it is so vast and this will make finding a lot of resources to write about much easier. If you would like to have me map out a custom link building and social media marketing campaign for your website feel free to contact me.

Although the healt and fitness niche’s are heavily competative, there are still a lot of new ways to market your product or site. These new methods should also bring in strong, healthy links from niche related social media sites, forums and more. We’ll  first take a look at a few health directories that would be worth the time spent submitting. I usually don’t like wasting my time on these, but because it’s so competitive you don’t have much choice!

Health & Fitness Web Directories:

PR2 KieFit.com – Submit Links

PR0 Joose.us – Submit Links

Web 2.0 Sites & Social Networking:

Most of these communities have blogs, forums and bookmarks all combined into one. If you search around enough you’ll see there are plenty of ways to get do follow links from these sites.

So this is just a small taste of what’s out there and hopefully it provides with you new marketing avenues to play with. I didn’t even get into do follow blogs for this niche and all the other social networks out there. Dig deeper into your niche and hopefully you market ethically and come out on top in the end.

  10. John says:

    Thank you for your post. Interesting but as I'm the webmaster for Extrapounds.com, I just recommend that you don't waist your time spamming our community. We keep an eye on it and delete all blogs that are just here for link building… Hey, you get my point no? Well thanks then.
    I do believe that the best way to rank high is to create great content on your site that will attract people. People will then link naturally to your site and you will get QUALITY traffic.

    Good luck!

  11. linkbuildr says:

    I get your point John and I do not promote spamming, but for people to leverage online mediums if they are in that niche. I always and only encourage users to get involved and become a community member and not a spammer. Unfortunately there are a lot of spammers out there and as a Webmaster I know what that's like to deal with. Marketing online is a two way street and if you'd like me to remove the site from the list just say the word and it's gone.
