10 ways to generate backlinks
SEO is a more important business these days. One of the most vital parts of SEO is generating a large number of quality backlinks. The following are the techniques that I had discovered to create backlinks to your blog.
1. Bookmark websites
Just like social media, bookmarking websites play an important role in bringing a lot of traffic to our blogs. Get personally involved with bookmarking websites and build your influence there. This may not help right away, but if it is consistent, you can generate immeasurable traffic after a couple of months of effort.
Well, we also know this technique to achieve backlinks. This process helps us build a relationship with other commenters and the blogger who wrote the article. This is a much easier way to spread your blog URL far and wide.
3. Related comments
This is also about commenting. But as the title suggests, it’s a bit different. I personally tried this technique to get authentic visitors. Of course, do not end up commenting on comments such as “It was worth reading” or “Excellent publication”. Because this may delight the admin posting the comment (giving you a backlink), but none of the other future viewers will be impressed enough to visit your blog for more information.
This is the best part for any blogger. Work and make friends at the same time. Keep an eye out for people who are equally interested. Help people there and make friends. Suggest them with some informative links on your blog. Importing feeds is a common way to talk about your posts once they’re published.
5. Guest Posts
Guest posts are probably the most common way that all bloggers adopt to get genuine backlinks. Focus on writing good and informative articles for guest posts. There are certain things that need to be kept in mind when writing a guest post. Make sure you write something relevant to your blog content because if people visit your blog by following the link, they will be looking for content relevant to the topic of the guest post. And if they don’t find anything, all your efforts will be in vain and you will lose a potential visitor.
6. Submission of articles
This is not an old technique adopted these days. There are plenty of websites that have an article trading system. This is similar to writing a guest post. But it has increased the effect. You write an article and submit it to article directories. If chosen, it will appear on your pages. This way you get a backlink from them. The biggest effect kicks in when someone else is interested in that post. These article directories also allow others to republish your articles depending on some condition, ie they must give the author proper credits. So you write once and it spreads without further effort.
7. Conditional republication
This is an extension of the concept of article submission. Let others contact you if they want to republish your content. Give them conditions. This will not harm you in terms of content fraud since your url will first be indexed as the legal one and if there is a problem, it will be with whoever copied it. So forget it.
8. Forum Activity
Forums are real places with and for real people. On forums you can help people and people really care about those who solve their problems. But how do you attract backlinks? There are two ways. Just search for problems that people are looking for a solution for that you have already covered in any of your previous articles. Tell them in a nutshell there and link to that article as a detailed discussion.
9. Blog networks
Although this is a very small factor in backlink growth, I think I’d like to mention it here. Join high PR blogging systems. This may not get you a sizable number of visitors, but the backlinking goal for SEO is still met.
10. Plugin Development
This is strictly for those who have coding experience. This works great for getting a large number of do-follow backlinks. This is accomplished by putting a dofollow link to your blog on the plugin’s settings page. Every time someone downloads and uses this plugin, it resides within your domain and the backlink resides there as well. So you get tons of backlinks in a very short time.
