Get Backlinks – Here are the 11 methods and backlink tools I use

July 2012 Update

As a result of the recent Panda and Penguin Google changes, I have changed my approach to backlinks. In the post below, I have crossed out the backlinking methods I no longer use.

My blog has 7670 backlinks as stated in my blog post Blogging Guide Blog Is One Year Old and since then I’ve had a number of personal emails asking me how I get backlinks.

By the way, today (July 2012) the number of backlinks is 7790 46931.

In this post I share 11 6 methods I use but first…what is a backlink:

Simply put, a backlink is a link on a website (including blogs) that leads back to your website / blog.

In search engine optimization (SEO), page rank is at least partially determined by the number of sites that link to yours. It’s important to gain backlinks honestly, and if a lot of other sites link back to you, you will naturally get more traffic to your page.

There is a lot of argument around the quality of backlinks.

We are to believe that a backlink from a website that is in the same niche as yours carries more weight. That would make sense.

Also, we are to believe the higher the Page Rank of the website you are getting backlinks also carries more weight.

So, ideally we want backlinks from websites in our niche and with a Page Rank of 10!

There are not many of those around unfortunately.

My approach is to mix it up and not get too hung up about whether the backlinks are in my niche or coming from very high Page Rank websites. Personally, I have too many other aspects of my on-line business that I want to keep running.

One more thing to mention…

When back-linking vary the anchor text you use. Read my post on anchor text here: How to use anchor text to your advantage

1. Blog Commenting

An easy way to get backlinks is to target Blogs that ‘Do-Follow’.  If you want to follow do-follow blogs (i.e. the ones that provide you with a backlink), here’s a great list: http://followlist.com/

When you comment try and include your name AND your anchor text. Something like: Terry @ Tips for horse lovers

In this example the anchor text is “Tips for horse lovers”.

Aim to make 10 valuable comments per day.

2. Article Directories

Submitting your articles is a straightforward process.

You simply copy your blog post, add a bio with a link or two back to your site in the resource box. Then you submit these articles to article directories.

Some popular Article Directories for you to try out are:

http://www.ezinearticles.com

http://thewhir.com

http://www.goarticles.com

http://www.buzzle.com

http://articlealley.com

http://www.searchwarp.com

http://www.ehow.com

You can just copy and paste your blog articles – you will still get a backlink but if you want to improve your overall SEO and traffic you may wish to use a tool I recently came across and now use: The Best Spinner

The Best Spinner creates unique articles for you to publish on the article directories.

And ArticleBot automatically submits your articles (spun or not) to over 400 different Article Directories.

2. RSS Directories

I mention this technique over and over again but there are so many people who just don’t use it and it is one of the easiest ways to get automatic backlinks.

Check out this post and submit your blog feed (and others) to the RSS Directories:

How you make your blog index quicker, build back-links and increase your traffic with a task that takes 2 minutes and you only have to do it once
4. Web Directories
Only a couple of years ago, submitting your blog to the web directories was a must. Nowadays, Google, it is believed, doesn’t put so much importance on the free Web Directory listings.

However, I still do submit the sites to the Free Web Directories. As far as I am concerned, the effort it takes is quite minimal, it only has to be completed once and you still get more backlinks and some of them are high Page Ranking.

So I recommend you submit your domain to various Web Directories.

Please note:there can be a waiting period involved, sometimes as much as a few months.

Again, I use tools and services rather than manually carry out myself.

I can recommend DirectoryBot and Directory Maximizer.

3. Social Bookmarking

Most of the very popular social bookmarking sites like Digg, StumbleUpon and Reddit do not give you a backlink when you social bookmark your blog post.

However there are some that do! Sites like:

http://www.mister-wong.com/

http://www.spurl.net/

http://www.diigo.com/

I use the tool Bookmarking Demonto submit my blog posts to several of the social bookmarking sites automatically.
6. Web 2.0 Sites
Write a unique blog post and create a hub page using Squidoo or HubPages. These sites provide excellent backlinks.

4. Video Sites

These days having some video blog posts is a must and once created you can submit them to numerous video sites automatically by using TubeMogul.
8. Angela’s Backlinks

Angela’s Backlinks provides you with a monthly report of 30 High Page Rank sites, using screenshots so that you can copy and have backlinks in place linking back to your site within minutes.

And the price for such a report?

$5 a month!

9. Forums
By joining a forum and adding a signature – each time you add a forum post, you can get a backlink (depending upon the forum).

Forums are regularly indexed by search engines, and by joining and adding a signature in your profile, it is another way to get some good backlinks with your desired anchor text. If the forum is a popular one, a backlink can be extremely valuable.

In a lot of cases however, administrators don’t allow links in forums posts.  Some administrators even prohibit the search engines from indexing their content.

5. Guest Posting

Guest posting is not just about getting the backlink. It is much more than that. Read my post on Guest Blogging.

6. Internal Links

Internal links from one blog post to another blog post on your site also count as backlinks.

Each time you write a blog post, try and backlink to a previous post. That way you are also adding another backlink. Plus you are enticing your visitors to see some of your other previous posts.

Powerful tip:

What is an automatic way of linking to other blog posts?

Use the MaxBlogPress Ninja Affiliate Plugin.

Not only does it link to affiliate products, you can set up certain keywords to link to your previous posts…and when you first install it…it adds links to all your previous blog posts as well. Instantly you could get a few hundred backlinks. The number depends upon how many published blog posts you have and how many ‘backlinks’ you ask the plugin to add per blog post. I have a maximum of only 2, otherwise it can become spammy looking.

I know I have mentioned numerous ways to build backlinks but by carrying out these tasks you will also gain loads more traffic.

The Back-Linking Tools

One more thing to mention before I finish…within this post I list many of the tools I use each day to help me build backlinks and traffic. If you were to do several of the tasks mentioned by hand (i.e. manually), you would be spending all day just doing the tasks and have no time for anything else…like writing great content and building relationships.

So for me, the tools below are worth investing in and most are one-off payments:

 

The Best Spinner: simply creates unique articles for you to publish on the article directories

ArticleBot: automatically submits your articles (spun or not) to over 400 different Article Directories.

RSSBot: Submits your blog feeds (and Twitter, article directories, Facebook…) to over 30 RSS directories – meaning publish a blog post and get 30 backlinks instantly!)

DirectoryBot and Directory Maximizer: Submit your blog domain to hundreds of Article directories.

Bookmarking Demon: Submit your blog posts to Do-Follow social bookmarking sites automatically.

Angela’s Back-links provides you with a monthly report of 30 High Page Rank sites, using screenshots so that you can copy and have backlinks in place linking back to your site within minutes.

MaxBlogPress Ninja Affiliate Plugin:  Automatically set-up internal backlinks to your previous posts in an instant.

The links to the tools I use and recommend in this post are affiliate links so if you decide to go ahead and purchase, I will earn some commission.

    Andrew — thanks for the list. I use a few that you have mentioned above and I have tried Best Spinner as well. It certainly does speed things up when creating unique articles for the directories.

    Not sure I’ll be checking into Angela’s links. I looked into that a couple years ago and just wasn’t impressed with the information being provided. With SEO Book toolbar it’s easy enough for me to see the PR of a page, but I’m not too picky about the PR or niches. I just rather read what I like and leave comments on the blogs I follow. I just need to weed out the blogs I follow to a managable amount.

  7. Rob Wagner February 20, 2010 at 1:55 pm #

    Hi Andrew,
    I found you through a guest post over at smallbizbee, You give a lot of good information here. Most people would not share how they get backlinks. I like the RSS Directories idea the best.

    Having a program that automates the process is a no brainier. One of the challenges is sometimes you just can’t get all of the backlinking done that you would like because of time and the effort that it takes.Auto software can help.

    One question, I know that article directories like Ezine will allow you to submit your blog post as an article, however, will Google not count the link because of duplicate content? The other issue is that the site you submit your article to can out rank you on Google.I tested this out one time. I submitted an article to a high PR site and Goggle gave the site position over my page.

    Thanks again Andrew,I will be following your blog and it was all because of a guest post, more testimony that what you have to say works.

    Thanks Rob

      Rob,

      The RSS tactic is a good one because you only have to do it once and from then on, backlinks grow every time you add a blog post.

      Adding the same content to other ezines is a Google duplicate content myth!

      You are not penalized by adding the same content to the ezines – I have been doing that for a long time and you still get the backlink. It is better, however, if you were to add a unique or ‘spun’ version of the content to the ezines – by doing this it would overcome the second issue you raise: “I submitted an article to a high PR site and Goggle gave the site position over my page.”

      Andrew

      • Rob Wagner February 20, 2010 at 7:33 pm #

        Thanks Andrew. You are correct, if you change the title it will not affect your target keyword that you want to rank for on your site. Spinning article have worked for me, Although spinning just the title would be a lot easier than the whole article. Thanks for the tips.

          Rob,

          The best spinner software is pretty neat. It takes about 30 minutes to get loads of ‘alternative’ versions. If you are lokking for a spinner – try it out for seven days for $7. Then if you don’t like it…cancel.

          Andrew

          • CJ February 22, 2010 at 2:32 pm #

            I don’t like to push the buttons of those algorithms. I never post duplicate content, though most of my articles are linking to other people, advertising what I do, or recommending someone/something else. So in the end, I’m always “spinning” the post prior to submission.

            I think this is a cleaner way to go and puts out more quality articles for your backlinks. Unique Article Writing is another good product to try. They don’t have a trial version (though if you cancel within the first 30 days you get a full refund) and it costs $67 a month. However, not only does it create unique articles for you, but it will place them in article directories too. And I was told (no I haven’t had time to try this yet) that it will drip them into the directories over a period of time.

    You listed some good techniques here and I use some of them too. But one thing I’m confused about is the Ninja Affiliate plugin. You said that it creates backlinks, but really doesn’t it just create links to other sites? That doesn’t have any benefit for your blog – yes it creates backlinks but they’re for other sites. Am I missing something?

    • Andrew Rondeau
      Twitter:
      February 23, 2010 at 10:17 am #

      Josh,

      What you can do with the Ninja Affiliate plugin is automatically link to other blog posts on your site for certain keywords – and that creates internal back links.

      Foe instance, if I write blog post A about ‘time management’ and then in blog post B I use the phrase ‘time management’ – I can automatically set-up in the Ninja Affiliate plugin that the phrase ‘time management’ becomes a link and links to blog post A.

      I hope that makes sense!

Then I kinda slacked of… it was a good thing I think because I got some really good content and community built during that time. Now I feel like I need to push a little harder to encourage more growth and I was stuck…enough with my infomercial.

    Nice article here. I believe that possible the best way is to comment on other blogs. The only downside, if you can call it that is that a lot of blogs have the nofollow tag in place. Which means that although you get the back link, no PR juice is passed by Google.
    I am a bit weary of auto-bots, they can get out of hand, you have no idea as to where they’re posting. They might post your artile on a site which can actually do more harm than good.

    Good article which I bookmarked right away. One thing I don’t think anyone has mentioned is Press Releases. I use them a lot and they seem to be very powerful in search engine terms. I try to make the content interesting in its own right, current and non commercial with a good photo if poss. I only put one or two links on to my own site or articles and then one or two to high rank sites like the BBC for credibility. My favourite sites for this purpose are PRLog.org and pressreleasepoint.com.

      Press releases is usually overlooked, its a way of promoting your business and a way getting backlinks. press release is not done primarily for getting links, but it is possible that other webmasters, copy and use the contents provided and in return, provide a link back to the source, so they might help with getting new backlinks.

    Personally, I don’t think forum links or blog comment links carry much weight anymore with Google, I have run some individual tests on this myself.

    For some reason, I didn’t see the part in your article explaining that writing content people will want to link to “naturally” will get you a much better link than any of these methods other than maybe guest posting.

    I am still a believer in content generated links, and spending too much time trying to “game” the system by spinning articles and submitting a bunch of directory and forum posts could be spent much better building a community on your own site.

    I am a huge fan of blog commenting, but as I stated earlier, the links are not very helpful for SEO, but are great for promotion/marketing, especially if you are a consistent and great commentor.

        I have performed tests on several sites where I only got links from blog comments and forums, thousands of them. While they certainly helped to get my site indexed more if the links came from higher PR pages, they didn’t appear to do anything for SEO. Then after only a few “natural links” (in content, anchor texted links) there was a HUGE burst in SERP’s for my keywords.

        I have also heard Matt Cutts describe comment links as something other people can do to actually harm your site by getting links pointing to you from bad neighborhoods. He specifically said that comment links have less weight because of that fact.

        Plus the fact that if you look at why links are counted as “votes”, how could a forum sig link or a comment be considered a “vote”. That is why I think Google tries to put more weight on links within content, it actually is a “vote”.

        Of course, I am no expert, just my thoughts….

            I did see it the other day, just watched again. Everything he talks about points to getting noticed so people will link to you. Even when he talks about participating in blogs and forums, he says answering questions will get people to notice you and then they might link to you. This is exactly what I was talking about. Blog commenting and forum posts are more promotion than linkbuilding, but can lead to links later (links that are natural).

    Very nice article Andrew. Backlink building strategy is really nice part of SEO, I also build almost 15000 backlink for my blog and I work much on link building for my blog, I like to analyze the backlinks of the competitors of my blog and try to see the powerful link of my competitors, then I try to get backlink from those sites.

    All of the point you mentioned on this post really some powerful source of get one way backlinks, RSS directory is one of the good platform to get backlinks, each time we make post on our blog, we get backlinks from the RSS directory. I almost work on each offpage activities and try to get new strategy to build link. Well I have shared on my blog different link building strategy, that I think some people unaware about those strategy

  24. Leonardo Endo April 20, 2010 at 6:10 pm #

    I’ve got a question about RSS submission. Everytime you create a new post how will it look like on the feed?

    Will it use the title of the post as the anchor link? If this is the case then won’t that be a bad idea as you will get random achor links pointing back at your site?

    Or am I assuming it all totally wrong?

  25. Sean April 24, 2010 at 6:30 pm #

    Great share, I use most of those methods, through my experience I find article submission and social bookmarking to be the most effective. Angela links are also worth using, though it is easy to find your own so I wouldn’t recommend paying for her service. Infact if you know what you are doing you can find all of her recommended sites before she releases them. Google is a powerful tool :)

            Yes it is very simple. It would take a minute or so to find a few hundred of them. Though it would take some time to go through them to see which were successful and which failed.

            But Angela has built a successful IM business for herself and I’d rather not attempt to destroy what she has worked hard to achieve.

            But one technique would be to just take the url of any content she publishes on her site, ezine articles etc. and enter them into “yahoo site explorer” it will show all the indexed pages she used to create backlinks to the page you chose.

            That method will work with any web page not just the ones angela creates.

            This one has over 2000 indexed links http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/search?p=http://angelasdiscountmarket.com/angela.html&fr=sfp&bwm=i

    Hey Andrew, Based on my own experience, one of the best ways i build my back links is through forums, for example i would go to Google and search for ”forums” and from there i try to find as many High PR forums where i can leave my link as my signature. Another great technique i use is a website call link building diagnosis what this site do is show you all the back links that a particular website has
    so with that said i would search for a bunch of high pr sites and Analyze their back links, this website even shows you how strong the link is visit http://www.linkdiagnosis.com/ i really hoped this post was useful to you Andrew, Thank you.

      If done right, link building will help you move up the search engine rankings. How much traffic it will give you will depend upon the keyword phrase you are targeting.

      Get the right keyword phrase and yes it is the best way to get organic targeted traffic.

    This blog post is absolutely brilliant, one that I’ve just added to my bookmarks.
    I’ve just started using the best spinner myself for gaining back links and the quality of articles it produces are top notch. The secret is to spend a few hours on each article, changing lots of words and adding more sentence changes.
    By doing that you should be able to create 100 plus articles that you can blast out to the top article directories. That are all unique and look brilliant to a human reader.

    Absolutely fantastic article, thanks for sharing!

  47. Tom October 24, 2010 at 10:56 pm #

    Method I use to get more relevant backlink is something like this: I type in google “related:mysitedomain.com” and google spit out sites that are related to my niche. Then I just go over the list of sites looking where I can leave some links.

    Great content Andrew….It’s been nearly 12 months so if you update this post it might have a few interesting changes, additions and/or recommendations. One other method I find a lot of people may not be aware of is the ability to add a Ping List to WordPress.

    In the Writing Settings of the Dashboard there is an entry for Update Services. You can add a list of directories you are registered with and every time you put out a new post it pings the message to the list.

    Some great resources in the comments as well so a valuable post you put up here…thank you

      Dennis,

      I just read this somewhere else, maybe elsewhere on this site. But I added a pretty huge list. I noticed now that right after I create a new post, I now get much more spam commentalia attempting to get through.

      Not interested in that of course, but it seems that something somewhere is now getting notified of the new post and that’s a GOOD thing, I would suspect.

      One strange thing though, now sometimes the PR on my Google toolbar will stop working and say there’s too many requests being made from my IP, etc. Not sure if these are related.

      I suspect quite possibly maybe…lol.

    Hi Andrew,
    I found you through a guest post over at smallbizbee, You give a lot of good information here. Most people would not share how they get backlinks. I like the RSS Directories idea the best.

    Having a program that automates the process is a no brainier. One of the challenges is sometimes you just can’t get all of the backlinking done that you would like because of time and the effort that it takes.Auto software can help.

    One question, I know that article directories like Ezine will allow you to submit your blog post as an article, however, will Google not count the link because of duplicate content? The other issue is that the site you submit your article to can out rank you on Google.I tested this out one time. I submitted an article to a high PR site and Goggle gave the site position over my page.

    Thanks again Andrew,I will be following your blog and it was all because of a guest post, more testimony that what you have to say works.

      Thanks for coming across from smallbizbee.

      If you submit your blog post on Ezines then Google does see it as duplicate content BUT…

      Duplicate content is a whole debate and as far as we know Google says try not to have duplicate content on your own blog.

      Yoast has just issued a great article on duplicate content that I am going through.

      http://yoast.com/articles/duplicate-content/

      However I agree than re-wording your blog post BEFORE submitting to the Ezines is better.

      Re: positions in the serps.

      I add the blog post to my site first and then only submit to the Ezines a few weeks later. That way in most cases my blog post gets the higher position.

    I have the same problem as you mentioned with not being able to find great blogs in your niche (for me it’s photography) to comment on. I have also started caring less about the exact content matching. I’ve resorted to just commenting on posts that I’m interested in – photography related or not. It seems to still be working. I sometimes feel like I’m blazing a path for photographers. The next guy who does what I’m doing should have a lot easier time because he can comment on a bunch of posts on my blog and get high quality backlinks. Oh well, somebody had to blaze the trail, right?

    I have several articles that I have on ezine, plus on my blogs.

    Was just wondering if it is good to submit the same post to different directories, or should they all be re-written?

    I have article spinner but the spins I get just never make sense when you read them for some reason.

    I have done all of the above, but I think for me article submission has worked the best.
    I kind of agree that blog commenting may not carry much weight, but one the less, it wont hurt you either, plus, if you lave useful comments, you will enjoy some added traffic as well.

    All that said, I think writing content that makes other people want to link to it is one of the best ways to get backlinks. However, its not that easy to create such content.

      it can take a while for the directories to approve your site.

      That is not a bad thing.

      Slowly building backlinks is good. Building too fast and Google can ‘sand box’ your site.

      Sand box meaning your site is removed from the search engines for a while.

By the way, the hints and tips on the lists of websites where I can get high PR backlinks for only $5 is great. I shall try this at once. Thanks again. Cheers!

    Thank you for sharing all the methods. I have personally found Blog Commenting most effective of all. I have not had much of a luck with Article Directories. Social Bookmarking like dig is great for quickly indexing a page. I used to use Angela’s Back-links service last year. I am not quite sure if it is still useful with the new google algorithm.

  119. Daniel December 1, 2011 at 8:51 am #

    Some nice tips for gaining back links, Andrew.

    Commenting on other sites seems to work, to a point. Though I have noticed my own links through doing this, not increasing for quite some time(They increased nicely, then stopped(No idea why).

    I think I will be joining one or two forums, as I have heard this is a good method of building back links.

    Guest posting would have to rank up near the top, of overall site benefits, if done on a high quality website with a top quality guest post.

  120. Steve December 1, 2011 at 11:09 am #

    Great detail in this post. Getting to it all requires a plan – RSS directories is one I tend to overlook and it’s easy to get side-tracked by what ‘works’. The key to what you 7000+ links is balance in my opinion. Now that I am going it alone, I’m trying to build a balanced link profile from the outset.

    Up until now, I’ve been doing them manually, however now that I’m back in college and more pressed for time, I’m considering investing in some automated software. Which would you say is the BEST out of the ones you mentioned, and also could it hurt your blog in any way? I’ve read other people say that submitting in an automated way can trigger something with Google that can actually harm your blog. Is this true?

    Thanks..

    For automation is has to be submitting your feeds to the RSS directories and for internal links, the Ninja Affiliate plugin.

    I use them all and I don’t feel my blog has been hurt in anyway…even after the Panda update.

    I’m still number one in the rankings for many of my targeted keywords.

    I mainly use article directories for my backlinks. There is a new one out there called Streetarticles. They are pretty good and fast at accepting new articles as long as you follow their basic guidelines and that’s ok in order to maintain higher standards. My issue is that my articles do not generate a lot of click back to my blog (i.e. CTR < 1%). I really try hard to create quality articles related to the items I want to promote (i.e. ladies watches) but it just doesn't create the traffic I was hoping for.

    Any advise?

  140. conference gifts January 27, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

    If you have built high quality internal backlinks for your site? Compared with the external backlinks, internal backlinks are quite simple but very powerful, sometimes even lead to more obvious results than building millions of external backlinks.

    It has been proved that in 2 to 4 weeks, if you naturally add internal backlinks, your site will immediately gain more traffic from long tail keywords. How much traffic you will gain depends on the competition of the keywords chosen and how many keywords within your posts.

  141. conference gifts January 27, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

    There’re also many other SEO tips besides building high quality internal backlinks within your site such as to optimizing image searches such as properly adding titles, descriptions. Sometimes, images would bring more traffic than building internal backlinks. But the problem is the conversion rate. Think about it, users who searched for images landed on your site and they saw many ads, they would neglect those ads because their target was pictures, while internal backlinks would bring more targeted visitors to your site and you can add more affiliate products within the pages and it would convert very well, trust me.

    Thanks for sharing a great resource on link building. I though would like to add that building links via squidoo and hubpages require a lot of work. To get Do Follow links from these popular websites your post must meet a certain set of criteria. Like with Squidoo your post must be published and activated and have a green check mark when you see it in your dashboard. That means you would have to wait after publishing and then go back and add your links. But the wait is worth it. I would recommend people writing some quality posts on these sites frequently. Hard work always pays off sooner or later.

    I think when it comes to building backlinks the best thing to do is literally just write the best possible content you can and then spread it out via viral social media actions such as twitter and facebook, if the content is so good then blogs will pick up on it and link back to your story and if it is so good that its possible that media services such as newspapers and tv shows could pick up on it also.

    Hi,

    I do use TheBestSpinner to create multiple variety of the same content and post them on different anchor layer sites. However, I try to generate traffic indirectly, which are more natural and does not raise an eyebrow to others. This way I generate around 800 to 1,000 backlinks for my niche site.

    Follow the link ahead.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Andrew,

    I’m not a professional blogger…I do have a blog that is associated with my ecommerce website. I want to give full disclosure.

    We’re hard at work trying to maximize our SEO, and that’s how I found your site.

    Anyway, I do have some expertise in a few areas (aviation, men’s accessories, leather goods) to name a few…and my blog touches on these aspects to some degree.

    To my question…I’m still a bit confused on this “anchor text” situation with regard to posts I make on other sites.

    I’ll be the 1st to admit that I’m a bit dense about these matters…it’s just not my area of expertise.

    If you don’t won’t to post this, no problem. I really am trying to learn…and don’t want to breach any etiquette.

    If your site doesn’t come up on page 1 of Google, most people won’t come across it. The vast portion of folks running a search don’t bother looking past the first page. In fact, many don’t even look beyond the first few outcomes. The top 3 spots on page 1 get 58.4% of the click-throughs with the rest of the sites getting successively lower click rates as you scroll down the page. The website appearing in the 10th spot on page 1 merely gets 2.3% of the clicks, and that’s for a site that still got on page 1, though at the bottom.

  190. Lud Van Daal June 15, 2012 at 8:26 am #

    I’d exclude links from article directories, angela links and web dirs. They just don’t work the same way. Most of the time it’s a waste of money or time building them.

    Thanks for this informative post. Do-follow backlinks are a really great way to increase your traffic. Another gold mine of traffic is posting on sites that list their (Top Commentors) in the sidebar. This is your opportunity to not only generate a backlink but also to get front page exposure. Some site typically take around 5-7 posts to make it to the top commentor list. Yours in Success…

    Blog commenting is the best in terms of seo benefit, when you look at the recent google algorithm it will simply tell you that forum posting is dead. I can not argue much but the point still remain valid due to the fact behind seo and i hope to say google still remain the gaint when it comes to web search. Sometimes when i do comment on blogs i see higher rankings in value compare to getting shitting links from the web, sure blog commenting is effective.

  199. Adam July 30, 2012 at 2:46 pm #

    Why don’t you submit to article directories anymore? I think they would still provide some value. Maybe it’s not even worth the time or trouble though.

      Since the recent Google algorithm changes, I feel article directories have lost their appeal. Most of full of bad quality content and therefore many have been down graded by Google.

      I prefer to put the effort into guest posting.

    Hi Andrew,

    I know you have been pretty busy answering almost all comments posted here. I would greatly appreciate your views on my questions.

    You mentioned that you crossed out the backlinking methods that you no longer use. This includes:
    1) submission to article directories
    2) web directories
    3) forum signatures

    Does that mean all the three have no SEO value henceforth ? Most of those who I know are practicing these tactic on a daily basis. Moreover, is it wrong to submit the same article to multiple article directory websites ? Will that result in penalization by google ?

    Can I have your views on all this ?

    I also like to thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.

    with best wishes,

    Well, Andrew that true to a certain degree. Google just want the internet to be one huge community where similar pages rank to each other and that way their searches become more relevant. There is so much spam on the internet and so much blackhat, that if you don’t know what you are doing, it’ll be difficult to run a successful business. Join the conversation and stay relevant with the topics.

    Hey Andrew,

    I’m currently learning about SEO and the overall making of niche websites. I am 15 years old but because my mother’s godson is a SEO expert and the founder of a SEO company in Poland, one day we met each other at a family event and I got curious of what he does so I thought he can teach me some things. I wanted to start my own website and he said he would very much like to help me. My first website is thefingerboarder.com but started a few others during my year of learning SEO. Right now I am focusing on it and searching for ways to gain backlinks!

    Your blog is quite informative and I’ve learned a few things from it but will try your ways. Are you a fan of automated backlink programs?

    I’ve just wasted a couple of hours (again) clicking on links there, but I failed to publish one Comment on any of the sites I went to.

    Apart from their zero Page Ranks, they were old and not updated, and every one had a technical problem with publishing my Comments. And when I clicked on Report an Error link, that didn’t work either.

    Thanks for the article, however I’m still sorta stuck on number one! I’m trying to get a few links to get me up the organic search results here in Ireland, I’m usually first or second on the second page which is a pain. I’ve read about the followlist and also have installed the dofollow plugin, but when I go to followlist and click on my niche (photography) pretty much all the sites seem to be spam sites, no blogs at all and the ones that do have blogs seem to be nofollow. I’ve been trying this for a few weeks now and have tried other ways of finding these blogs but it seems I’m lucky to hit one in ten if that so just getting a few comments in on valuable posts is taking me half the day. I’d love to start up my own blog to get links to my own photography website (I mainly shoot weddings) it’s based on a wordpress template but I’ve 2 main questions:

    1: would I be better off having an external blog on say blogspot or keeping it internal within my site or does it make no difference.

    2: say I do find a really good and interesting blog, is it worth my while commenting on different posts every few days in so far as will I still gain ‘points’ or is one link per site the way it works?

    It’s just at the moment my main priority is to get on the first page for my little county Mayo :)

      re: 1: would I be better off having an external blog on say blogspot or keeping it internal within my site or does it make no difference.

      Keep it internal with your website. The blog will drive traffic to the website.

      2: say I do find a really good and interesting blog, is it worth my while commenting on different posts every few days in so far as will I still gain ‘points’ or is one link per site the way it works?

      I would comment on different posts every few days…across a number of blogs.

      It can take 3 – 6 months to be high in the rakings. Very much depends upon how your site has been set up and how you publish your blog posts.

  242. Rujacksalad March 17, 2013 at 5:08 pm #

    The best way to get backlink is using Blog Directories, Web Directories, Article Directoris, and RSS Directories because they are very easy and quick to use

  243. Larry March 18, 2013 at 8:41 am #

    Excellent tips here. I have been using a few of these my self. Very helpful, thanks!

    Regards

    How the hell did you get a backlink from mashable.com! Awesome man. Btw a very helpful post.

  245. Mohsin March 23, 2013 at 12:17 pm #

    Very nice article. Although i have just started blogging, but i think i am getting the hang of backlinking and SEO. Your article was a great read. thanks.

    Thank you for this post. I have bookmarked it for future reference because I am actively trying to increase my back links. I will definitely come back to check out the RSS link building tool that you recommended when it is in my blogging budget. I can see how it would be a great tool to have. I’m already using the Ninja Affiliate tool and need to add some more affiliate links to it, but love how it works seamlessly.

    Thanks again!

    Thank you so, so much for sharing about Backlinks, as this subject is one that is still very new to me. Since my focus is on writing and teaching many how to improve their life and succeed in their goals, I do not have too much time for learning about so many new internet additions and requirements. Thanks again, great contribution. Dr.James

    Ho do you make money on this website, since you don’t have ads and you don’t seem to sell anything?

    Hey ANdrow,
    Another great link building technique is to donate to organizations that mention your name/link in their sponsors/donors page. Lots of non profits that accept donations have very high PR donors list pages.

    You can easily improve your search engine listings by using the noodp and noydir tags as well.

    In addition to Andrew’s tips:

    - Do not ever use backlink programs.
    - Do not add your site to all the directories you find on Google.
    - Google dominates the web (Over 80%). Google, yahoo and bing are your only friends. Do not waste time with others.
    - Do not try to get 100s of backlinks in a day.
    - Never pay for paid backlinks
    - Always have unique content (and let people copy/paste)
    - Clean coded website is a must (not talking about h1 tags or keywords)
    - Allow visitors to post comment (Do not use nofollow, use dofollow)
    - Find cheap advertising sources to drive visitors to your site regularly.
    - Find friends that have access to .edu and .gov domains to get backlinks

    There are of course much more for advanced users and webmasters, but I just wanted to underline some.

  251. Danilo Petrozzi April 22, 2013 at 6:58 am #

    I agree with you about social bookmarking (that is one of the link building methods I prefer nowdays) but do you really think that RSS directories are still useful?

  252. Tanik April 24, 2013 at 9:48 am #

    Awesome writing bro .I wanna say something that “” Peoples are excited to get back link using any methods but um really different because if you get back link by doing spam then that back link will not help you to rank your site because google and other search engines are really hate spammer and one more thing that some web sites are providing 1000 to 10000 back links for free ! If you try them Google will must mark your site as a spam site “”

      “As a result of the recent Panda and Penguin Google changes, I have changed my approach to backlinks. In the post below, I have crossed out the backlinking methods I no longer use.”

    How much work for pennies a day!

    SEO seems scammy, an improbable as a money maker.
    Seriously, getting donations is more feasible and profitable.

    Google has made it so difficult to make SUBSTANTIAL INCOME.
    They change a formula, when “bloggers” sre onto it.

      Not a bad list; but I think you’re mistaken about article marketing to directories like ezinearticles, as well as Web 2.0 spots like hubpages. I find they work quite well for me today, especially because I only submit quality content.

  255. Orlando Palmer June 3, 2013 at 10:43 am #

    Thank you for an amazing and informative article. I am a professional journalist currently writing my first novel, but a newcomer to blogging and this will help me tremendously in attracting trafffic to my new blog. Keep up the good work and I will follow your postings closely

  256. Varinder Pal Singh June 17, 2013 at 11:28 pm #

    Thanks for the advice. I fairly impressed by the generosity of bloggers with their information (like yours).

  257. nitendra from Google Penguin June 21, 2013 at 9:27 am #

    I have learned allot from this post of building backlinks. Building backlinks is an art and if you work over this art you will have a higher PR and a traffic to your site.
    I really love that RSS feed of getting articles and going to try it for sure. Well the readers who have also commented over here, have shared some good methods of building backlinks.
    Thanks everyone and especially you who made this possible. I have bookmarked your site for future use.

    Hi Andrew!

    Wow. This blog was really good. I learned a lot. I love the strategy about referring to your other post inside of your posts. I had no idea that you get credit for internal links. I will use this one. I found your blog because I was asking the question about which blogs allow backlinks, so your resource abut Do Follow was great.

    I appreciate your knowledge and expertise. I did not see your RSS feed. Probably my over site on my part, however I will be checking in often to see what other information you provide. I would love to add your link on my web site for my visitors. Think I will do just that.
    All the best of success to you Andrew!

  263. Shruti September 9, 2013 at 4:12 am #

    Backlinks can adjust the strategy for blogging. If Quality Backlinks may improve your site ranking after that bad along with poor back-links can spoil your almost all efforts along with hardwork.
