Do you feel like it'd become a really tall order to get your backlinks to stick? It seems that the whole process of getting backlinks from reputed sites or article directories isn't as easy as it used to be. For starters Google's recent Page Rank update seems to have affected a lot of sites with many experiencing a sharp fall in PageRank.
You might have gotten tired of how short lived traffic from article directories turns out to be in the long run. Blog commenting and forum commenting don't seem to have the same value as they did earlier when it comes to quality backlinks. So how do you get long term traffic that lasts?
I stumbled upon a unique technique to boost the PageRank of my site while getting lots of quality traffic in the process. It's quite simple and involves boosting your site or blog indirectly. It's possible to boost your site's PageRank greatly by utilizing the power of another high ranking site.
The way to do this is to locate a high page rank blog in your niche that's relevant to the content of your site. Leave a comment on the blog and then submit that blog comment to all the social bookmarking sites like digg, StumbleUpon, delicious, furl, reddit etc. This makes your backlink stick and you not only get lots of interested visitors, but the PageRank of your site increases too. With this technique I was able to get a PageRank of 1 quite easily.
In contrast to painstakingly writing a bunch of articles, submitting them to all the article directories and waiting for them to be approved and published, this technique is faster with more immediate observable results. You can do this in an hour or two and reap the benefits. Continue to employ this technique on a consistent basis and you'll see your Google PageRank shooting up while traffic to your site quadruples over time.
