This is a list and brief explanation of where and how to get backlinks. The last time, I made a post of how to make first page in search engines and promise to post "Ten ways to get backlinks" the next time. I did some research and experiment to compile this list of ten ways to get quality backlinks. Without delay let's dive in to see the ten ways we can generate quality backlinks.
  • Blog Commenting
This is the easiest way to get some backlinks to your blog; but doing it right matters. Most bloggers hate spammers and are very suspicious, so you have to be cautious on your part for you not to be seen as a spammer. To use blog commenting for backlinks, subscribe to your favorite blog or high quality blogs in your niche, and make sure you be the first to comment whenever they update. When leaving a comment, please do not leave random comment such as: "nice post, great content, good information". If you leave comments like that, you will be regarded as a spammer and your comment will not be approved. Apart from subscribing to blogs, use google to search for blogs in your niche, make sure to read the post before your comment to be able to give something meaningful. It can even help you to add valuable information to the post, may prompt readers to click on your name to learn more about you. When leaving your comment do not include links in your comment, it is very easy to make yourself look like a spammer. Besides most blog these days use comment luv, a wordpress plugin which display your blog's most recent post under your comment. With comment luv you don't need to paste links in your comment anymore.
  • Social Bookmarking
This is a fast and easy way to get backlinks. I believe by now you have a facebook and twitter account. If you have, add more social accouts like reddit, sumbleupon, linkedin and any one you like, and share your blog post to all. To save you time in accomplishing this, use Onlywire, an automated tool that enables you to share a single post to multiple social bookmarking site with a click. It will take some time to set up at first, but after the first time all you need is few clicks, and your post will be posted to over forty social bookmarking sites.
  • Submit To Blog Directories
Many directories online allows you to submit your blog for free with a one way link in return. Submit your blog to free directories and avoid directories that will request for reciprocal links, that won't help your blog. Instead, use free services and if you must use a paid listing, make sure it's a quality listing.
  • Guest Blogging
When discussing backlinks method, it is impossible to skip guest blogging, because it is the most effecting and natural. Write blog post for bloggers with quality blogs and leave a link pointing to your blog. Use google to search for blogs in your niche that are accepting guest post and ask them if they will accept a guest post from you. Sending them sample of a written article may help increase your chance of being accepted; let them know the article you will give to them is going to be 100% unique.
  • Forum Posting
Using url as forum signature is also a great way to get backlinks. Whenever you make a post, your url is also included under the post you make. If you are alredy a member of this forum, then you have a great tool at your disposal; but sad to say many have being banned. To avoid getting ban, you should be doing only two things. Asking and answering questions. If you are not doing any of the two above, then you should be offering information in form of article.
  • Distribute A Press Release
If you have just lunch a new blog or have something newsworthy, you can make a press release. Press release needs to be in certain format, so you might want to make some research on google with this phrase: "press release template"; you will find all the information you need on creating a press release; make sure to include your link in the press release and submit it to free press release sites or use prweb.com.
  • Distribute A Podcast
If you have written a lot of articles on your blog, convert them to audio files using odiogo.com, a free service that automatically convert text to audio and after that use padcreator.com to convert the audio files to podcast files, and submit to podcast directories. This is a good way to get backlinks and traffic from old articles on your blog.
  • IM Report Card
IM report card is a site that contains independent review of internet marketers. Use this site to get some backlinks by registering with IMreportcard.com, click profile link to edit your profile, go to signature section, then include a brief description about yourself and a link to your site. Search for products you have used in this site, rate it and leave a comment about the product. If your review is approved, your link should appear under your review.
  • RSS Feed Directories
RSS means "Real Simple Syndication" it is a way for allowing other sites to syndicate content from your blog to their sites. If you don't have a feed, use google feed burner to burn your feed; but if you use wordpress blog then your feed should be ursitename.com/feed. When you have your feed ready, search for "RSS Feed Directories and submit your feed.
  • Spy On Your Competitors
Spying on your competitors when you arerunnig out of ideas can be very helpful. It gives you new ideas of where to get backlinks. Search for any keyword of your choice and take note of the first five pages in the result and use this site: backlinkwatch.com to see where they are getting their links from.
I just shared ten ways to get backlinks. The question "where to get backlinks" has not only being answered, but also, how to get backlinks. Starting from Monday December 3, 2012, I will discuss each of the method above in detail on my blog. So if you will like to use any of the method above you can subscribe to my blog for more information at uniqueblogging.com. Hope you will find all the above methods helpful.

      If you have links only from high PR sites it is not good! You must start with PR0 and PR1 links.

    Good little list.

    I think the biggest one you missed off your list was web 2.0 blog sites. Creating sites on Tumblr, Blogger, Wordpress.com, Squidoo, Hubpages etc, then building links to those pages and then linking to yourself is a very powerful strategy. One i am using on sites within niche's that are "hard to get natural links for" and it works very well.

        Press releases have literally zero SEO value nowadays. Ask me or anyone who has submitted them. Even press releases from PRWeb don't bring seo value let alone others.

          Well sometime you are right Social signals are not more than myth. When all the posts in facebook privacy are set to friends only how the hell will google crawl those links? Even if you have 1000 shares of a page than at most 10 links will be crawled by google in a year cuz other links are not accessible to it.

        Oh, I am sorry my edgy friend, by no means I wouldn't want to "walk on your nerves". I just noticed there was a place "where to get backlinks" from that wasn't mentioned.

          Do you think that things such as "submit to blog directory" and "social bookmarking"
          and or "guest blogging" or "forum posting" or "blog commenting" are
          something new to you? If so, then I have nothing to say with you.

          Most tips mentioned here in this post have been discussed several times
          in the past. I don't know why you haven't noticed that WF forum members
          are repeating themselves in most their posts recently.

          This is the reason why we should see that thick sticky section at the top
          of this forum. "SPAM for backlink".

            Linkbuilding methods are constantly under scrutiny as some continue to work while other lose their value.

            I am sure everyone here knows, though there have to be lots of new membrs that simply don't, the basics of linkbuilding, however from time to time even these basics make their way into a fresh thread and that's no problemo.

            If you are already familiar with excellent threads regarding all these 'places to get backlinks from' as well as their current 'value', then why not simply link to them threads right here. Otherwise this is a good place for people to add their "places for getting backlinks" as well as their opinion regarding them.

            Guys saying 'thanks' will popup in any thread, it doesn't matter that it discusses basics or the most intricate SEO methods...

            Regards

            Agree with you there that this topic has been discussed ad infinitum ad nauseum but interesting thing to note is that despite such frequent discussion there is no consensus. One says Press Releases work the other say no it is a waste of time, one sings the praises of article writing and someone else rushes in to sing its dirges. Very very confusing. Not sure if there is any consensus on what linking works in this day and age.

    I agree that these are discussed several times here, so there is nothing new to it.

    Anyway I would like to mention diversifying your backlink profile is key to ranking after those Google updates, specially the Penguin. Another thing social signals has also become more valuable than before. So you should take care about that also while building backlinks to your/client website.

      If you see that your competitor has a ton of junky / spammy links, DON'T get links from the same sources. I know it's tempting & easy. But it's almost a certainty that they'll eventually fall pretty hard.

    Where to get backlinks? People usually tends to use Google for searching which can be very time consuming and of course Google won't tell you about the pagerank, dofollow tag or number of external links which is quite important. So it's not that easy to find worthy websites. Anyway I'd like to suggest the SeoStatz tool for finding new backlink opportunities. V. time saving.
