so I finally stepped out of my comfort zone and took action I just started up a niche site. I am promoting a low-gravity ClickBank product. I carefully chose a handful of low competition and low- search volume keywords. Now I do understand how important it is to have a lot of good content on my site. But overall I am wondering if guest blogging would be good enough for backlinks.

    Guest blogging is definitely a great way to get quality backlinks. Your link profile should be diverse, however, and contain a mix of different kinds of links.

      Guest blogging is a small part of the puzzle. You really have to go all out these days in order to get traffic to your sites.

      Unless your niche is not competitive, you have to get many quality links to your site, especially if it is new.

    It's a good start because it will force you to write better content for your site. Don't stop there. Find sites with readers who would be interested in your product, ie new moms + healthy nursing tips, etc and comment on them. Stay on topic, but show that you know what you're writing about.

    The older the sites you find, the better. Use Whois to find the domain age of the sites you find.

    A site that has been online 5 years, updated once a week and has a "subscribe" button is better than one started last month with 500 FB Likes. Remember, no matter what else the search engines do - longevity matters for backlinking.

    I think guest blogging not only helps you with your ranking, but a popular blog is free traffic that a new blog can hardly get on its own so quickly.

    Guest blogging is most effective technique no doubt, but regular blog sites is much more effective because they give us regular backlinks for our website. While guest blog gives quality backlinks to boost up our rank on search engine. Guest blog is totally based on theme and category and if we post normal blog on daily it will help more than guest blogging.

  • Yes, guest blogging is an excellent strategy to build high quality back-links but it is one the most difficult to implement as getting back-links isn't that easy as it sounds.

    Guest blogging is still highly effective but only if you manually outreach to the blog that is related to your niche, popular and will drive real referral traffic.
    If you're doing mass guest blogging, then it might be just submitting to a PBN and in that case it might not be that effective.
