To create; to become.
This quote is one of the most frequently used in the SEO world. If you read the definition of SEO in Wikipedia, it basically tells you that SEO is the process of getting website links to your website. Many SEOs will then link to you, and the SEOs will get traffic to the website they link to.
We can use this quote to illustrate what I mean by accretive. If you’re looking at a website right now, you’re probably trying to think of the last time you visited it. It is likely that many of those pages were created as a result of someone else linking to it.
In other words, if you are a website owner, you have the opportunity to write the link to your website, and you can put that link in the source code of your website, and you can make it appear as if the link was created by that website. So if you have a website that has a bunch of links, you can then use this quote to illustrate to your readers that the links are accretive.
This is done by incorporating the link into the source code of your website. But be careful. Don’t put the link in an iframe. Do NOT put it in an iframe that is generated by your server. This is the easiest way to get your website to link to your website. Instead, put the link in your own page.
To get a better idea of how this works, check out this article by our very own Matt Asay. Matt wrote a great article explaining the technique, and it’s very easy to do.
Yes, the link is accretive, but if you are going to be linking to another website, you should actually do it on your own page. And you definitely shouldnt put in an iframe. You can read the article here.
This is the exact reason why we love Linkedin. We can get our own page to link to our own website from any other website in the world, and in the past few days we’ve gotten dozens of these links.
Asay goes on to say that they were able to link to our webpage from all over the place, but they were able to get the most out of these links simply by adding more and more information to each page. We love this because it makes it so much easier for people to see our page from other websites.
In Linkedin, they add “more and more information” to each page. It’s the same thing you see in Facebook. They’re not only adding more and more “information” to your own page, but they’re adding more and more information to the pages of companies that you want to be in business with too. Linkedin is a fantastic tool for finding the companies you want to do business with, and for getting more information about them.
