If you’ve been investing in content over the years, chances are you’ll have a number of PDFs, presentations, and possibly even written documents that could be used for link building purposes.
There are a number of multimedia and document-sharing websites out there, which are 100% free to submit content to.
You can even include links within the content itself, like Rand Fishkin does here:
Here’s the process:
- Round up suitable content (i.e. PDFs, Powerpoint presentations, etc.)
- Submit to document-sharing websites
There’s no real trick to rounding up your content; it’s a case of sifting through your companies’ files, or working with your client to uncover them from their archives.
When you have them, you need to edit them so that there’s a link back to your site somewhere in the file itself.
Next, visit these sites and submit your documents:
- Scribd: For PDFs, and other written documents
- SlideShare: For Powerpoint presentations
- Issuu: For PDFs, and other written documents
All of these sites are free to join (which you’ll need to do, in order to submit documents), and content can be submitted simply by uploading your documents.
Here’s a list of 200+ sites if you wish to submit your documents to even more sites.
