    Lets break this down a bit.... Of the things you have mentioned only TWO actually gives you a "Back Link"
    • Broken Link - this CAN but not always give you a back link
    • Blog Comments - more often than not this would be a no-follow type link
    • Social Media - No-Follow
    • Guest Posting - This one CAN but not always give you a back link
    • Forum Posting - these are more often than not No-Follow

    Kinda add to the list Quora Q/A ( which is No-Follow )

    Social media posting is a source of traffic - no back linking is going to happen here.. and if SEO ( Search Engine Optimization ) is getting traffic from search engines.. then getting traffic directly from Facebook or Instagram obviously is not SEO

    Blog Commenting.. there is the very rare off chance that you might find a blog that is do-follow, but the overall juice being passed is minimal at best and probably not worth the effort. However, much like Social Media... if your comments are quality authoritative comments it is possible to draw an amount of direct traffic - but again this directly is NOT SEO.

    My overall goto answer on how to get backlinks... Write QUALITY content that is worth sharing... Share your content socially so that it is seen... and have a centralized "Home" for all of your content ( your website ) where other people with websites could link to your content ( this being a back link )

    Find a slew of sites in your industry that have high web metrics AND are not your direct or indirect competitor. Those people need the help of some sort. Give it to them.

    We create open graph images for prospects if a page is missing one. Or write them a new SEO title. Or get them a significant backlink.

    Something to show you want to be a referral partner and are willing to give before you get.

    Then when it's time, ask for the link.

  • A good SEO strategy involves building backlinks using Google's own properties, and then interlink them. This is referred to as Google entity stacking. When done correctly, it is a powerful way to rank your site quickly.

    Seems that any good link building strategy will include outreach. Write good content and then find other websites that would possibly want to link to it. After identifying them, you must reach out and ask for a link. Organic link building is hard to come by. It takes much more work than it used to.

    PBN backlinks (private blog network) still work very well especially if the article (where your backlink is placed) is at least 500 words long and is related to your market niche with the right keywords, it is not necessary that the whole website is related to your niche, but the article must be absolutely, to give the right power to the backlink...

    Either build them yourself from web 2.0's and article submission sites, or try to get guest posts on other blogs.

    You can always buy all kinds of links. If you do so, always make sure they're of high quality from real websites.

    Look in to niche edits. There are a lot of niche edit services but it's better if you can outreach them on your own. I'm still figuring out how to find relevant niches that can link back to me. So far I have had little success.

  • If your content is really good, then the backlinks will automatically follow, when other people share your blog posts and video content online.

    Be helpful, the more helpful your content is, the more your content will be shared, the more backlinks you'll receive organically.

    One of the best strategies for building a backlink is to search for a website related to your niche. Go check the website's top pages and search for backlinks of those top pages through SEMrush or Ubersuggest.

    Make sure the websites from where your going to take a backlink has relevancy with your niche and also have a DA of 50+.

    Next what you can do is take that full content and create an infographic out of it and ask them to publish that Infographic on their website below the same content.

    An infographic is a combination of specific numbers and visual content which helps the user to get the information of the whole article in one go.

    I know some people are doing guest posting, writing on Quora and Linking to authority sites ad brands. always there are new resources to link to your content? You can try medium its a stable platform with many publications and writers.

    start writing a few articles on high trafficked sites and answer some questions on quora.
    Post some Value on every platform you thing will help you grow.

    Basically, everyone knows how to look for backlinks. Nothing has changed much - try to make a natural increase in link mass, do't leave links to spam resources. The built-up link mass should be as natural as possible - links should be from forums, directories, blogs, social networks, comments and so on. The main thing is quality resources, even if there are not many.

    Creating backlinks is the same strategy as a guest post, directory, profile creation, infographics submission, video submission, etc... One thing note that gives interlinks in the meaning full form.

    Do a bit of linkbuilding everyday on higher domain websites (plus good trust flow to citation flow ratios), and focus on quality content.

    The future of link building is quality content and placing links where it is relevant to the content. Avoid spun thin content.

    Just remember, every relevant links count as long as it is relevant and helps the visitors!

    You can start with foundation link building and then authority link building, guest posting. Link building is a strategical game. Analyse your competitors and bit them.

    Here's an easy one:

    Run an image search on images FOUND on your site (you have rights to these).

    Hire a VA to find the contact info of the sites that link to you and also to FILTER the search list (you want sites that have links worth having - ie., niche specific, high domain authority, etc etc)

    Get your VA to email these and ask them that you own the rights to the images and they CAN KEEP USING your image PROVIDED they link back to you - either through an anchor (BEST) or naked url (OK)

    Do this right and you'll rocket up the rankings

    Many SEO agencies actually charge $5000 per month for this kind of thing. You can do it yourself or spend $30 on a VA to do it for you.

    I think all that matters is the way you generate links, no matter whatever technique you are using, just make sure it is useful and is from a less or no spammy sites. if we talk about techniques like tier linking, it was considered black hat as most of the people were using it that way, but today most of the experts are following this as white/grey hat. If your content is unique and is considered as a quality content by search engines, it doesn't matter which technique is that.
    You'll be amazed but I usually go for new sites as well along with established ones. For Example, Yelp.com - a directory site - which is the well-established site that may generate leads for me, on the other hand, a new business listing site like HighFiveList.com can provide me a free listing and can generate me leads too. Just make sure the new site you're posting on is active and a team of experts is working on it with no spam score (there are a variety of ways to check these parameters), this would indicate that eventually it would make an online presence and benefits you in the future. Once these new sites are developed it may get harder for you to take a link from them or they may charge you for that, so if you find the new good site I would recommend going for it.

    There are several types of foundation link building still works as long as we can treat them in best way. If we plan to create some web 2.0 properties, post valuable content and can generate some traffic then it will work good for sure.
