    Great tips.

    I do Blog Commenting and Forum Marketing.

    The benefit of these are that in addition to just back links, they are a GREAT source of traffic too!

    I especially like doing Forum Marketing. You are correct. It is very important to give value and add value to the forum. People will start noticing you and click through to your website.




    Nice post karan,

    All the 7 titles you specified is right and good.
    But, what about Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

    Excellent post Karan. You wrote an amazingly informative post as you advised us. :)
    I agree with all the points you mentioned and in addition to all those, I want to add another point.

    Article submitting: like guest posts, you can submit your articles to article sites like ezinearticles, articledashboard etc. Some of the sites has PR 8 and those will provide you a lot of traffic with obviously at least 2 backlinks that you mention in author resource box.

    Great Blogs… It’s a wonderful to know that all you just listed strategies are creating a quality backlinks and its a great idea that you include guest posting because I want to tried it.



    Karan, Nice points and your blog looks great.
    When you consider about PR back links ( Quality Back links), the dofollow matters.
    In my experience creating ‘killer Articles’, leaving comments on dofollow blogs and article submission will bring quality back links and visitors too.



    Yeah Dinesh you’re right Content as always said is the king, Quality content automatically acts as a link bait and welcomes backlinks..



    Hey Karen,

    Anyways, Other tips are good as well.

    well these are some of the best tips to get the quality back links. Thank you to compile a list in short. I was expecting some more ways.



    Great post – have to agree, along with what you and your commentators have said.

    I was coming here to share some thoughts, but I’ve been beaten to the punch! I did want to ask you if you had some tools you recommend in the backlinking endeavor? Some favorite services you use?
