    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 )

    I know some are doing web 2.0s although I'm not sure how good they work. What I used to do was Google Plus posts and having comments on my site. That's a method I've learned from Wealthy Affiliate.

    Public relations is an underused method for companies. They usually send the journalists/blogs a link to their homepage but this is wasted.

    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.

    Guest posting and press releases are good way to back links.

    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...

    We are all very afraid of Google core update 2020. I think existing strategies are good but not enough. Keep looking on SEO related blog sites.

    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.

      I agree. When I left the IM scene 8 years ago this was true. I am glad to see that not much has changed.

  • 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.
