    I would suggest looking for services that offer to link to your site from their sites. But when looking for services ensure that their sites have great metrics PA40 and DA30 would give you a great boost.

    Social media sites will help.. Most profiles will give you the option to add your website.. Setup profiles on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and other social networks for some links. Next to that, you might also want to think about doing some minor social bookmark submitting. You don't need to submit into thousands, but adding your links into some of the more popular social bookmarks could give you a little bit of extra juice.

      Sorry for replying late, I was stuck with some issues. Okay so, I've added my links to some of the bookmarking sites in their Bio section as well as sites like Stumbleupon, delicious etc. I've also posted stuff there and added friends to get my links powerful but google STILL hasn't indexed them been more than 2 months. What could be the reason?

      Blog commenting doesn't produce "killer backlinks" in any case. Guest posting can be moderately effective, but only if the blogs are really worth posting to. Usually it's not worth the trouble. The links will fall of from the front page, and your new blog post doesn't have pagerank to begin with.

      You probably guessed it already, but this advice is utter BS. Social media links are almost all nofollow, and the many sites are very hard for Google to spider. Social bookmarks are typically nofollow too, and the sites may have millions of low-quality thin pages. Why would Google appreciate those?

      Those who push edu and gov backlinks are almost always running a scam of some sort. Google doesn't give any extra benefit to those domain extensions. If the sites allow you to put a link in your profile, that link is untrusted and should be nofollow.

        Still having those backlinks is better than nothing . If you think this way then only links on the main page of a high pagerank domain is counted a good backlink ? Can you please explain what you consider a quality backlink ? Because getting a link on a site homepage is difficult onless you pay for it !

          Well, you aren't talking about SEO or search engine rankings in that case. Those links are usually nofollow, and often hidden in such a way that they're very hard for Google to even find.

          Stop twisting my words. Crap links are not worth anything, but if you get a link to a new article on a strong domain it's not worthless. If you create a profile of some sort, it's very likely that the link is nofollow, and the page will never get any sort of PR. That's a lousy backlink.

          Again, pushing .edu/.gov as a some sort of solution is BS. Decent links on any TLD are not.

    My favorite place to get backlinks is from social media like Google +, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook. And then use social book marking sites to boost it up.

    You also want to consider interlinking some of your pages. Use a one page which you consider the most important and have 3 or 4 pages linking to that page.

    To maintain rankings, you need to continually add content to your site so that your site shows authority. Otherwise any rankings you have can easily be overtaken by someone who does SEO fairly well.

      Sorry for replying late, I was stuck with some issues. Okay so, I've added my links to some of the bookmarking sites in their Bio section as well as sites like Stumbleupon, delicious etc. I've also posted stuff there and added friends to get my links powerful but google STILL hasn't indexed them been more than 2 months. What could be the reason?

        I'm sorry to say, but you're wasting your time building back links through social bookmarking sites and if you do it in high enough quantity you're going to hurt your site.

      No. Again, comments are supposed to be marked with rel=nofollow. Why is this so hard to understand? Comments aren't helping your SEO.

        I'm not sure why you consider No follow links useless ! Having them is still better than nothing . In order for a backlink profile to be natural , It must have Mixed Do-follow and No-follow links . This is proven to me that comment links can help if used correctly .

          I have sites that link to other sites I have. None of the links are nofollow. And there's nothing unnatural about that.

          Get links from sites in your niche or a related niche. Make sure they don't have the nofollow tag...

          Make sure your content is worth a visitor's time.

          You get enough rel="nofollow" from sites that tell you the value of a site, from sites that tell you who owns the site, etc. And you don't have to lift a finger to get them.

          Don't claim that you're doing SEO link building when in fact you're just commenting on blogs for some reason. Claiming that's SEO is just making excuses for the time you spend.

          No, your claim of "must have" simply isn't true. There's no need to "balance" backlink profiles. Sure, nofollows don't hurt, but you don't need them.

          Proven how? What's the methodology? Who did the study? I suspect that you just mean that you've got faith in your nofollow backlinks.

            I can't say that there is any study behind what I said about No-Follow links ! There can't be any studies and any proof that anything can help SEO because google algorithm is secret and no one really knows ! When we talk about SEO here we are just sharing experience ! These links work for me every time I use them . I test different methods of link building on different websites because that's what SEO is all about really . " Trial and Error " .

              Thing is, you are just saying a highly dubious thing and then can't back it up with some sort of case study that you or someone else did. Be careful when saying things that can come into question, especially when you're sharing the information as a form of actionable advice.

              Help us clear this up by telling us how no-follow-links help your SEO. Does it increase rankings? Does it bring in traffic? Is it brand building?

              In what way does these no-follow links help you? If they did help you, can you point to a case where you or someone else isolated the cause behind increased rankings and concluded that it had to be because of the nofollow?

              Matt Cutts, of Google, on his blog, said that nofollow links pass neither page rank nor anchor:

              https://www.mattcutts.com/blog/pagerank-sculpting/

              This is the last sentence on that post of Matt's:
              "The essential thing you need to know is that nofollow links don't help sites rank higher in Google's search results."

              So, please, remember that nofollow links don't help sites rank higher in Google's search results.

              I think comments in other blogs can help you out as a way to start a relationship with other bloggers, just like a tweet or a facebook share, if you leave a great comment in a popular blog, you are not getting a link that help your rankings but it can refer traffic to your site, combined with the relationship you're building that can lead to guest post opportunities or the other bloggers to share your content. I think blog commenting can be useful to noticed by other bloggers that can later on link to your content.

              That's just crap. Of course you can study something even if you don't know everything about it.

              What you mean is that you're content with anecdotes, and you think that it's unfair that we don't think your dubious ones that contradict common knowledge are any good.

              It's enough to note that nofollow links don't usually hurt you, and if you also happen to do something worthwhile you'll get somewhere.

                In my post 24, I gave them the link to Matt Cutt's blog post where he talks about nofollow links, where he, literally, says, nofollow links don't help with ranking.

                If that doesn't convince, nothing will, and we might as well stop talking and start ignoring.

                  I saw the link, and I realize that. You're right, there's a lot of people who have weird ideas that wont ever change. However, it's sort of a public service to call out the most dubious claims on a forum such as this.

            So what is the methodology?

            Blog comments help a lot regardless they are doflow or nofollow..

            The point is to get relevant visitors to your site, the visitors come to your site, explore your site, visit other posts, pages, categories of your site and these are counted toward a strong algorithm of Google SEO....

            Chasing just dofollow links is gone......

            And I don't want to invite Google to suspect my promotional activities....... it is better to secure the web property I created....... instead of spoiling that...

            And it is true that without a single link, you can rank high in Google.......... ask why....?

            The biggest factor of Google search engine ranking is getting visitors from Google search engine...

            If you managed to get visitors from Google search engine regularly, your site will score high....

            But how will you get the visitors from Google search engine if you don't promote it....... yes you have to build your brand name, so that people will come to search engine and they will search with the brand keyword in Google....

            It will be good if you take help of TV, magazine advertisements....... people get aware of your brand, some people directly visit your site by typing the url in browser, while some come via Google by searching with the brand name....

              Google doesn't give a toss wether you're active on some random forum or not. They're mostly operating with their algorithm, and that's especially true for us small guys. They just wont notice, and they certainly don't care.

              No, they will not. And I have hard time figuring out why this is such a hard thing to understand. Nofollow doesn't rank, and the comment pages of popular blogs usually have way too many comments for those link to really matter in any case.

              No. Google doesn't even necessarily have any means to track your site. Even if you use Analytics that data isn't used to rank your site.

              Not to mention that a blog comment is usually a very poor way to get a visitor, unless you strike a lucky home run and manage to post a link to a great relevant article.

              Not for any keyword that has some serious competition.

              That's BS. Or rather, the "the biggest factor" part is BS. I think that Google probably tracks clicks from their search, but it's only a small part of the algo.

              But that has absolutely nothing to do with traffic that comes from some random blog comments. That's got nothing to do with rankings.

              Do you really seriously think that it's a some kind of indicator if your brand comes on top when people search for your brand? That's just ludicrous. It only says that your brand name is recognizable and unique enough, and nothing else.

    If you want truly killer back links, you need to look at your competitor's websites and run a broken link checker.

    Once you notice that there are several broken links on your competitor's website, you use Ahrefs on those missing pages.

    You would be surprised as to how many quality websites would link to a dead page.

    You then use archive.org's way back machine to get an idea of the content that dead page used to have.

    Come up with your own better version and then approach those sites that link to those dead pages and have them link to yours as well.

    You are killing two birds with one stone.

    First, you are getting a quality back link and second, you are taking off a back link from your competition.

    Content partnership is what provides a absolute impact on the link building activities. Lets say a blog post is getting live on the website which you are working on and again the distribution of the same on a number of blog directory websites makes it more and more relevant so as to eventually get the track of link building on a streamlined way.

    Just remember to not use those Backlink services that claim to provide you with quality backlinks (such as Fiver...etc), you will really hurt your website.

    When you guys talk about edu or org type of high authority sites, they usually doesn't allow you to place your links in comments or anywhere. I wonder where do people get the backlinks

      People get those from .edu sites that allow comments... on pages with no link juice... Say, Student A at University B decides to keep a blog about his drinking at Fraternity House C.

      He puts up 3 pages, then forgets the project. Someone finds these pages, posts a test comment. It sticks. So, Someone sells .edu backlinks on that blog.

      After a while, there are 3,579,847,985,491 links leaving each page on that .edu blog. So, no good for SEO.

      .edu sites, like the University of Colorado's site has a home page with SEO power. They're not going to link to you, unless you discover something as brilliant as E=mc squared or write Tortilla Flat, Of Mice and Men, Herzog, or discover the cure for bone cancer.

      Even, then, it's 50/50.

      Why do you say 'they're not indexed?' How do you check?

      What niche are you in?

        Well I'm in the 'hookah' niche and products related to it. Google webmaster tool shows me after exactly 7 days the new backlinks each time it indexes. I was curious to know why few backlinks from sites like delicious or stumbleupon haven't been indexed yet although people liked my content which i posted there. I build backlinks from blog commenting, tumblr and google. Don't know where else could I build links!

          Google will never show you all your backlinks in webmaster tools. Their way of fighting backlink manipulation.

          If you want to know if they're indexed, you're going to have to google the link, not http//. no www. in quotation marks.

          If they're indexed, it will show them.

          You'd be better off getting backlinks from people selling quit smoking things and cigar smoking shops and men's article stores than .edu's.

            I just checked as you suggested and google did not index it yet. I was wondering if I could copy the backlink URL and paste it into webmaster tools as 'fetch as google'? OR if I want google to index my major links which they've not indexed yet, should I share my links of my google + profile page? or mail the link to myself?

              If you really want Google to index a page fast, post a link to to it from a site Google crawls often.

    Getting backlinks has always been a challenge for me. Luckily I have a partner who is able to assist me with some of these things and get us on the right track. They have been trying to teach me along the way, but it has been a bit difficult going. Here are a few of the tips that I found the most helpful and I hope that you will too.

    Doing a guest post in the page rank blogs

    You will want to do this in an area that is already highly rated. This is going to make it easier on you because they already have the customers. Do not just put down a backlink though because it is not going to present any value to the audience. You should find some blog or website that meets up with what you are trying to sell or say and then do the simple step of contacting them. You can ask them to do a backlink or put something on the comments page to see some results.

    Blog commenting

    I am assuming that you already have done this in one point or another with your backlinking, but since it is so simple and this post might help someone else, I am going to mention it. You will be able to just put some comments on a blog that is similar to yours. Make sure that you are picking a blog that has not put in a no follow plugin so you can actually be seen.

    I would suggest when doing this that you write out something that is of value. Just writing down something like “follow me, here’s my link!” Is not going to work that well for you. Writers and the audience are smart and they will assume you are spam. Take some time forming a reputation on the site. You may even want to spend some time just posting on these sites to become a familiar face. Once that happens, you can start to make suggestions back to your site. This allows the others to trust you and you will probably get a lot more backlinks out of this.

    Be active

    Take the time to be active on a few different forums. Google is going to love when you are active like this and promoting yourself. It shows that you are actually trying to make a good thing for customers rather than just spamming them to make money. But you need to be active and not just have your name on the forums. Post as often as you can, but make the material worth the while of the other readers. Share something that is new and informative, be there to answer questions, show links to other places rather than just your website. When you build a presence, it becomes easier to get others to follow your backlinks.

    Blog directories

    Not only should you be posting things all of the time to the different blogs and forums, but you should list your own blog to one of the directories that are online. There are a lot of these that you can choose from and you should go through and become a part of at least a few of them. This might take a bit of time to find the right sites and submit the information, but it is going to make it so much easier for your audience to find you. They can just go to one of these directories and type in the keywords that they are looking for. Soon they will find you and this can last for years without you putting in extra work.

    See that's the trouble with backlinks... they can come back to bite you if they go bad! And then you'll have to spend an eternity finding the bad links. So stick to the safe ones, i.e. social media sites, social bookmarks, blog comments etc. none of these are particularly amazing at generating results. But you will see a steady rise in rankings that doesn't suddenly drop one day.
    Besides, don't focus on types of backlinks, Simply continue to work on the quality & relevancy of link. Create do follow links by sorting out an seoquake extension installation.

    The only kind of link building I would ever consider is writing a REALLY good article and submit it to major web sites (e.g. Huff Post, New York Times, etc. etc.)

    That kind of inbound link - whether follow or nofollow is guaranteed to be safe. It's a lot of work, but the pay off is enormous.

    Go HIGH quality, very low quantity in my opinion anyway.
