How to create Quality Backlinks? This is one of the common and widely asked questions by bloggers and webmasters. Backlinks are considering as a backbone of your website SEO. When we are talking about the rankings in search engine result page, backlinks plays a vital role in it.
Nobody can rank their site without backlinks. Webmasters pump hundred of dollars to increase their backlinks but due to Google strict policy and several algorithm updates, it is really a tough task to gain quality backlinks.
I always prefer and recommend quality over quantity. Always make backlinks from natural and organic sources. Don’t ever try to buy backlinks, you will easily get caught by Google and your website gets a penalty from them.
Google recently updated their penguin 4.0 which is now their part of core algorithm and available in real time. This update mainly targeted sites with poor and low-quality backlinks. So, it is a clear message to webmasters not to gain any links that are from unnatural sources.
Today in this article, I will show you how to create quality backlinks with these simple steps and it’s free. You don’t have to pay anything for it. It is also one of the safest ways to create quality backlinks.
Quality content always plays a great role in driving natural backlinks to your blog or website. When you post relevant and quality content that helps your readers, they love to link back you on their website and also share them with their friends.
The key reason behind a successful blogger is to provide relevant and quality content that resonates with their readers. So, you cannot ignore the importance of quality content.
Guest posting is one of the best practices to create quality backlinks from high authority websites. Most of the people think that Guest posting is almost dead now. But the fact is that it is still one of the effective ways to create backlinks. Most of the blog owners still looking for Guest authors for their blog.
You can contribute your articles to increase your authority as well as get quality backlinks. The important part of guest posting is, don’t do guest posting as of creating only backlinks, It will also increase your authority as a professional writer.
Forums are a great way to create backlinks. Forums help webmasters to connect with like-minded people and increase your networking. Since most of the forums do not offer out do follow backlinks, but they are still effective to increase the visibility of the site. When you started a thread on the forum, it will attract people towards your post and help them to connect with you. I am also using the forum to promote my blog. Join the forums relevant to your niche. It will give you the good result.
Social Networking Sites
Social networking sites are a great place to drive high-quality traffic. Most of the Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ etc. have nofollow backlinks, but they are still an effective way to create backlinks.
Google still count nofollow links as backlinks. The difference is that they do not pass any link juice. Social networking sites help you to promote your brand awareness. Sharing the latest post on your social media profiles help you get quality visitors.
Blog commenting is also an effective way to generate backlinks. Most of the people say that most blogs provide you nofollow backlinks in their comment form. But I find myself that it is also a great way to create backlinks from quality blogs. When you drop a comment to a blog and added some value to the post that people love to connect with you and visit your blog. My blog’s 10% traffic is coming from the comment which I have made in other blogs.
A great example of blog commenting is Ryan Biddulph. He is generously and actively posting comments on other blogs. His comments are genuine, authentic and relevant to the topic.
Connect with Bloggers
You can also connect with other bloggers and ask them if they want to share links with you. Most of the bloggers prefer link sharing with each other. Don’t spam their inbox with a link request. Just send them an email and politely ask them if they are interested in sharing links with you. This is a time taking process but still count as effective.
Don’t forget to generously link back pro bloggers on your post as a reference. It will definitely help you to build a strong bond with them.
Over to you.
There is a lot of misconception among bloggers and webmasters that nofollow links do not have any SEO benefit. Google still count them as backlinks. Since they did not pass any link juice but they are still effective ways to drive traffic and increase your backlink score.
These are some of the easy and most reliable ways to create quality backlinks. Please note that creating only do follow backlink won’t make your job done. You have to create a combination of both the nofollow and do follow backlinks. I hope that you like this article and found it useful.
