5 Ways To Get More BackLinks in Less Time

5 Ways To Get More BackLinks in Less Time


If you run a blog or website then you  probably already know that getting  links is one of the most important,  and at the same time, most time  consuming thing. Yesterday we have  posted about 5 Working link building  tips which reflects some useful ways  to build links for your blog.

Here are some of the new ways to get  more backlinks while spending relatively less time,

Add a “Link To This Post/Page” Box in Each Article’s Footer

Most of your readers may also have a blog but remember that a very few of them know HTML. So even if they want to link to your articles, they can’t because they don’t know how to do that. So help them by creating a link to this article box in your sidebar. It will be something like this,

<textarea rows="3" cols="50" onclick="select();"><a href="">Your Article Title</a></textarea>

If you use a wordpress blog, then you can use this code to automatically generate the box,

<textarea rows="3" cols="50" onclick="select();"><a href="&lt;?php the_permalink(); ?&gt;">&lt;?php the_title(); ?&gt;</a></textarea>

Make sure that this code is in wordpress loop.

Dominate Discussion Forums

Google for discussion forums in your niche. Then register and start participating in various discussions and try to post links to your site while solving others problems.

Also, don’t forget to add a link to your site in your forum’s signature.

Profit From Bad Guys

Create an RSS feed for your website and add at least one link to your site in each of your articles. This way you’ll get hundreds of back links from scrappers. I know that these are not quality links but still, if you are going to be scrapped, you might as well get some links out of that :)

Twisted Article Directory Method

Publish articles on article directories like ezinearticles and goarticles. It may take some time for the articles to get approved, but once they are approved, you’ll continuously see more and more back links to your site as many bloggers publish articles from article directories and due to their TOS, they have to keep your links in the article.

The Customary Quality Content Advice

Write quality content. Yes, I know that this advice has been repeated so many times that you are ready to kill me for writing it again. But believe me, if you spend some time in creating good content, this may be the only thing you need to do as people will automatically link back to quality content.

Do let me know how your link building campaign goes by using the comment form below.

    Thanks for the tips Mayur. I think forum signatures would be a great way to build backlinks. and your RSS backlink idea is also interesting.

  • mahadzira

    Hi Mayur, very good tips and i like the first one never thought of it before. The tips on RSS also very important and i m using TYNT wordpress plugin to automatically put link to my article.

  • larry

    Great idea on taking back a little of what`s been stolen from you. By adding a link back to your site on your articles the person who steals your content and publishes it on their own site will generate a backlink pointing to your site. There seems to be a lot of copied content now days but a lot has to do with the ever increasing number of blogs that are started daily.

  • swapnil

    thanks for giving such good tip.I tried to get backlinks from other forums,and i write post for them but it rejected what can i do now?

  • Mujibur Rehman

    Thanks !! One thing is very important for every site is to have back links. Getting back links is really hard. We have to have patience and keep our work going on. Some times I feel very bad to keep posting comments to get just one back link , but google somehow wants backlink .
    We will have to keep patience on getting backlinks !!

  • Chethan

    Awesome Tips… I really Wanted this Kind of Thoughts.. You said this at the right time… I Never Knew about “ezinearticles” or “goarticles”… Nice to Discover it….

    Thanks a LOT

  • Basant Singh

    The tip related to RSS was new for me. But I couldn’t understand what you were trying to convey. Can you elaborate a bit more?

    • Mayur Somani

      There are many sites that automatically scrap (publish) content from different sites’ RSS feeds. They will steal your work whether you like it or not. So, if you have a link to your own site in the content, you’ll at least get a back link from them.

      • NpXp

        Interlinking is what Mayur is trying to say. Ensure that all the articles are interconnected in one way or the other.

    • FAQPAL

      There is a Wordpress plugin that will automatically add a link to each item in the RSS feed giving you the credit for the post. The name of it fails me now, but it shouldn’t be hard to find.
