Getting bloggers to write about your site and link to it

We all know that links in content are good. We know that one way links are good. We know that links which bring traffic to your site are good. We know how to get these types of links: blogs.

Webmasters and SEOs have some great tools for getting text links from blogs. Here are three in my personal order of preference:

V7n contextual - 20 bucks a link. The blogger writes whatever they want. You choose several anchor text combinations, links are "life of site". Links are not identified as ads. Blogs are screened before given assignments. Advertisers can't choose mimimum traffic or PR but the blogs tend to range from PR 3 to PR 5. Bloggers can say whatever they want about your site. The v7n guys are responsive to advertiser feedback.

Payperpost - Price varies. If you want a minimum PR or Alexa, you're going to pay. I don't particularly like their interface, but after a little fooling around you can get bloggers linking to you pretty easily. Plus you have loads of choices. Blogs are only required to maintain the link for 30 days but most leave them up forever. Sometimes payperpsot people respond to advertiser feedback, sometimes they ignore you.

Reviewme - Tends to be expensive but you can get higher quality blogs linking to you. There's no requirement to leave the links up as far as I can tell. There's no qulaity control so the review of your site might be completely wrong. One of my sites was treated very unfairly during on a review that cost me $250.
