How To Organize Your Inbound Linking Campaign

Before creating your inbound linking campaign for SEO, you must begin with a strong foundation.  Create a spreadsheet that includes your vital business information including your name, address, phone numbers, official contact email, business hours, a short two sentence description of your business, and a more elaborate summary of your business.  Note each Web property you sign up for, what the login and passwords are, when and who signed up, and list any notes that are important for the future.  You will need access to your inbound links if any vital business information changes.

The key to a good inbound linking campaign is consistency and visibility.
