Quick Start Blogging To Get Backlinks
Backlink building is the backbone for a website/blog. It is not just a tactic but there is a complete strategy to get backlinks from quality sources.
The most important factor that influences your ranking in Google’s searches is the quantity and quality of backlinks that point to your site. While there is strength in numbers, the more the better, relevancy is also very important. If you get backlinks from a lot of sources this will increase your site’s authority but if the links are from sites that aren’t in the same niche or in a related one, then it can hurt you.
First download the free Firefox plugin available from SEO Quake and use it to locate blogs that allow backlinks (dofollow):
Create a keyword swipe file of relevant keywords and phrases relating to your niche market that you can use within your blog comments.
Create individual pages on your website that feature high quality content and articles that are likely to attract attention from visitors to the blogs that you post your comments on.
If you take the time to create articles that offer information on specific topics and then post a comment (and leave a link) on related blogs, you will be able to begin generating targeted traffic faster and easier, and get backlinks, than if you post on unrelated blogs OR direct people to a “money” page (salespage).
Focus on posting your comments on blogs that contain a higher page rank than your own site.
A blog with a page rank of 3-5 will offer higher value backlinks than a low (unestablished) blog. You can determine the blog’s page rank by using the SEO Quake plugin.
1. Guest Posts –
This has long been a popular link building method since it’s a win-win for both sites: One gets free content to share with their audience, while the other will get baclinks of a higher quality.
When done right, with a focus on providing helpful, high-quality content, guest posts can still be an effective link building tool.
Spammy, low-quality posts won’t help your link building efforts — and many site owners won’t even publish them in the first place.
That being said, it’s in your best interest to look for opportunities to get backlinks to your site within the body of your post.
Or at least that’s how it’s supposed to work.
2. Broken Link Building –
This strategy involves finding broken links on other websites, identifying the content they originally referred to, then offering the site the chance to replace their broken link with a valid link to relevant content.
That content, of course, will be on your site.
With this strategy, everyone wins. The site owner will have fewer broken links. Their visitors will see more up-to-date, useful content and fewer 404s. And you’ll get backlinks of a higher quality.
If you approach this strategy correctly, it’s an effective way to get the same results you’d see from a guest post, but with much less effort.
3. Find competitors’ backlinks and “steal” them.
If a site links to a competitor, they’ll probably link to you, too. And while we’ve looked at ways to figure out which sites are linking to specific competitors’ domains, you can also use tools to identify additional sites that are ranking for your target keywords and determine how they’ve achieved their level of authority.
Start by identifying the top ten sites for each keyword you want to rank for. Do a Google search and pick the top ten domains. Then contact them.
4. Participating in authority forums.
5. Producing in-depth articles as they are highly linkable.
6. Produce shareable content.
7. Offer giveaways in return for your content sharing.
