The greatest problem which I have ever faced as a blogger is getting one-way links to my blog. As far as backlinks are considered,quality matters more than quantity. It’s like, 1000 PR1 backlinks may be equivalent to just 4-5 Pr4 backlinks.
Therefore, I am going to share 7 useful ways to build quality backlinks for your blog.
Comment on blogs using Top Commentator Plugin
This is one of the easiest way to build backlinks.The importance of top commentator plugin is that, If you manage to come in the top commentators list then you will receive one backlink from each page of the blog.That means loads of easy backlinks. Alternatively you can also target blog with recent commentator widgets which give a linkback to recent commentator.
Hold contests on your blog.
This is a great way to both spread your name as well as Build quality backlinks for your blog. Start a contest in which the participants have to blog about your contest in order to be eligible for winning OR they have to subscribe to your feeds in order to participate.And the prizes can vary from themes to free advertisements to Cash money. You can also approach products maker in your niche and ask them to sponsor your contest. This may be in the form of a free license or may be in the form of some cash prize.
Write amazingly informative posts.
This can be taken as a killing multiple birds with just one arrow. Writing researched and highly informative posts is a great way to attract traffic and as well as compels other bloggers to link to it and gift you quality backlinks. Though you should also take advantage of social media to promote your post and let your quality post spread around the web.s
This is one of the most common ways used to gain links fast.But buying can sometimes be really expensive therefore, you always exchange links with other bloggers and thus,it comes out to be a win-win situation for both of them. If you not comfortable with asking for link exchange, you can ask free free ad spot interchange. If your ad spots are dofollow this will help each other to get backlink and also brand awareness. I also suggest don’t do this in excessive, if you do link exchange in excess, Google might start treating your blog as link farm.
Submit your articles to Web directories.
Find a list of free web directories and submit your blog to them.This is a fast way to gain backlinks if your submissions are accepted.
If you can afford to buy submissions in paid directories then you must go for it as it is worth your money.
Guest posting is a great way to popularize your brand as well as gain quality backlinks. Start a guest posting campaign and start writing for blogs, which are popular in your niche. This way you will get quality linkbacks and also vistors and loyal readers.
Participate in webmaster forums.
Register at multiple webmaster forums like DP,V7n etc, and regularly take part in discussions.Once you have build up a good reputation put a link to your blog in your signature
and thus the more posts you make the more links you get.But, never spam these forums as this will lead to 2 things:
1)You will lose all your links.
2)You will lose your reputation.
Thus it is better to go for the cleaner way.
