Most webmasters are reluctant to link out from their home pages, so getting home page links pointing to your own website can be difficult. But there is a simple and effective way to get tons of home page links.
All you have to do is find websites that are relatively new and offer the webmasters a good link from two or three internal, well-established pages on your site in exchange for a home page link on theirs.
This is a true win-win situation because your linking partner gets two or three high quality inbound links to help establish his/her new site while you get a home page link on a site that will become established in its own right in a relatively short period of time.
Some of your linking partners will move your home page link to an internal page after their site becomes established, in which case you can drop all but one of your links to the other site. It's still win-win because:
1 - You still have a quality inbound link in exchange for yours.
2 - During the time it takes for the other site to grow and build a solid rankings foundation in the search engines, you're taking advantage of the anchor text boost and traffic from the home page link!
