For example, when we design a website we like to include a small link at the bottom that might say Internet Marketing that is linked to our website. We have a huge advantage as a web design firm in creating legitimate links on the websites we design. It is a standard practice and our clients don’t mind. It’s like having a brand name on your car. But getting links like this is something that will occur organically. If you create great content, your site will earn links from people that want to use your content as a way to make a point on their own site.
