      Where from you listen about it bro? For get rank on search engine we have to get dofollow backlinks, nofollow links have no any value in case of search engine ranking.

    What do you mean by dofollow will make pageranks down. It is dofollow links only that increase your pagerank.

    That video is really informative! By the way why do we care about backlinks just for PR improvement? Anyway, even if your PR is low you can get traffic if you update your blog/website regularly with unique content. Moreover, backlinks would be more useful when they drive actual visitors! I receive a great deal of traffic by leaving comments+links on blogs/sites with popular newsletters like ask-leo.

    Perhaps forums are better way than social media in terms of quality of backlinks for PR. But social media helps in driving traffic.

    Glad to see that someone is actually preaching white hat link building tactics as opposed to black hat link building blasts. Those are a joke.

    Whitehat is the way to go!

    I would agree that blog post commenting is among the best methods of getting decent quality backlinks. Personally I’m also a fan of article marketing for syndication.

    Fantastic information. I watched the video twice. Once to get the overall message, and the second time to take individual notes on things I need to do. I am thinking of making a video myself, which Matt suggested last in the video, but I think this is a great way to gain recognition. Thanks OP for the info.

    Regarding the forum posting, I have came across your list of dofollow forums but what if none of them are within my niche? I cannot post a Weight Loss link at a webmaster forum like v7n or warriorforum.

    Thank you for the great information. I have a question for you though. You say that commenting is one of the best ways to create backlinks. Does the URL of my blog have to be visible to count as a backlink? For example, when I added this comment, it asked for my website url. Will that be considered a backlink?
    Also, you mentioned Yahoo Answers as another method. Can’t this method also be considered Black Hat SEO and get sites into trouble? Sorry for the questions but I am new at this and trying to build my site’s backlinks.
    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks Harsh for the useful information. But I have a question about blog commenting. We know that if we do blog commenting on other websites we get links. But are they useful to that website on which people are commenting.
    If people do comment on my site will it help me to get backlinks or it will improve my site rankings??
