Indirect Link Building Process – Using social media for building links can be a lengthy but rewarding process. However, to do that you will need to create accounts on all the social media websites you are interested in using and using your profile, link back to your website. People, who follow your profile links, will reach your website.
Update Your Social Media Accounts – Whether you have a blog or/and profiles on various SM (Social media) websites, you should update each of these on a regular basis. This helps keep your account fresh and interesting.
Do Not Spam – When using social media, make sure you never spam. By spam we mean don’t post irrelevant or self promotional links etc on your profiles on the different SM sites as this might get your account terminated. Do this slowly and surely and reap the benefits.
