I get backlinks from these ways as following:

Social bookmarks,forum signature,directory sites,articles submission,social networks and more.

But i think they are all useless to google rank.

      And how you wanna do that without links huh?

      Jees people would you please stop giving bad advice about create great content and people will link to your site THAT AIN'T GOING TO HAPPEN!!!!! So please stop with misinforming people who have questions like this.

      @OP you have a view options to get better value links, comment on High PR blogs, create press releases, get yourself a private blog network, build a network of web 2.0 properties and link those to your sites, create video's, create PDF's and upload these to PDF sharing sites, Create a powerpoint presentation and upload these to powerpoint sharing sites.

      But do yourself a favor don't create great content (which in itself is good of course) and wait for other people to link your stuff, i have been in IM for many years and the times that people have linked to my sites with "great content" is under 5%, it just ain't going to happen.

    Yes they are low quality 'junk' links. They're good for foundation work, especially if you run those through a quality web 2.0 site like hubpages or squidoo, and they point to your site.

    It isn't about the number of links any more. It's about the quality, and the fact that other actions on the internet support your backlinks... So you'd expect social sharing at the same time as backlink growth.

    The best way to do this is to find questions that people need answers to, and build content that people will really want to share, because it's so useful to them.

    If your site's content is original, interesting and somewhat innovative, other content authors would want to link to the site.

      Yep, most would want to link to a website which offers original content, interesting and somewhat innovative but they would not link to a site that has no authority and does not exist (buried deep within Google's). Therefore, this may not be viable. Unless you are willing to make a deal and pay for a quality link.

    If you are bulk-spamming links, it's best to point those spammy links to your Tier 1 links.

    Don't just point all your links straight to your domain.

    Creating content which people like to link back is best way to creating quality backlink. Content marketing is best way to deal with it. You should write high quality articles, blogs for the niche of your domain.
    Creating solutions for the issues or problems your users might have always results trust, expertise and source of reference what search engine expect from your link building activities. People like to share your site and link if it is published in form of tutorial or a practical tool.
    Research and statistics also serve this purpose. You need to turn them out into useful formats for the target audience. These methods make your credibility and increase visibility. Offering a number of solutions for different problems in particular niche could be shared through blog which continuously affect the reputation.
    Last but not the least - Few times back I was reading an interview of Google Employee (Matt Cutt's Team) they have a very straight forward point of view: Your each activity, submissions should be responsible towards its users, don't do any so called submission just for the sake of search engines is the key for getting greater visibility, trust, branding.
    For me it is a very simple formula - Search engines will do my value addition as much and that short of what I contribute to web, what kind of contribution I am doing.

      If it has been penalized by google, it might be best to start the site again on a new domain.

    How to get high quality backlinks?
    Original content?

    High quality backlinks mean creating fresh original content (if your contents are not of good quality, the social media won't care about what you're doing) and acquiring links from different types of high authority domains - press release, video, document sharing, blog posts, HPBL, etc. Build links slowly and continue building links to keep link velocity.

    You should always track how effective is your backlink building campaign going by checking the position of your keywords that you are targeting. By doing this, you will get to know what kind of links are working and what not.

    And from next time concentrate on building links which contributes towards positive ranking movements. You will learn some specific links will work better for certain niche and website where as some may not be that effective. Once you continue doing this you will get a clear idea about your link building blueprint.

      Google has been the LAMBO of the engines for ages, those are the old times. I think Larry Page and Sergey switched from LAMBO to Bugati pre-penguin and post panda..oh well. For research purposes just take a look at my sig (I just don't find many people suggesting specifics as of now) and after you see what's involved for google ranking, do it on your own if you've the time. Pays long term to take a few years to do it solo

      I'll stay away from anything that says "ranked top of google" in 2-3 days or at least be very cautious to those type of links suggested by those who acquired rankings that fast for their clients, rankings are often artificial and often disappear in a few weeks. Keep in this forum sub-category, among my favorites, do-follow forum posts. They bring social signals and increase keyword phrase rankings quite fast to the targeted page.

    I admit that I don't know the answer. But apparently no one else does either. Look at the posted replies - just about all are of the "you need quality, not quantity" variety. Well, the OP knows that. Just look at the title to this thread.

    If we can all agree that high quality backlinks are backlinks from high PR, relevant, and authority web pages, then exactly how do you get these high PR, relevant, and authority web sites to link to you?

    Another typical reply is to write quality content that others would want to link to. Well, how will other web sites know about your quality content? How do you inform them?

    I don't think you are wasting your time as long as the links you are generating are related to your web page. If the forum signature link pointing to your website is from a related forum, it is worth. However, the forum inner pages do have low PR (don't confused with the home page PR of the forums). You should promote your website through social media platforms and that will create a brand.

    Here is one little secret to getting quality/top back links from reputable sites using content syndication.

    Write good articles in your niche on different topics, like if you are in SEO write good articles on topics people love to know about like panda, penguin, Google updates, link diversification, SEO 2012 and more and get them on high traffic blogs, directories and sites like Squidoo, hubpage and others. Continue doing this and watch how your articles will be syndicated across good quality sites.

    Don't forget to guest blog, comment on low OBL blogs, build a personal network and more.

    Good luck.

    I agree. They all sound low-quality to me (except for a few directories like Yahoo! and BOTW).

    I think you need to completely re-think the way that you approach SEO.

    If you want to rank for serious terms, social bookmarks and article directories aren't going to get you there. Period.

    If you don't want to spend too much time, and you don't want to spend too much on content to get accepted by guest post sites then you're better of by just buying high PR blog posts from someone. Just make sure you do a little bit of research first.

    400 blog posts for $40,- or 150 blog posts for $5 at Fiverr will hurt your site sooner or later cause such network have a huge deindex rate, I know cause I tried it myself with my own tier 2 network and within 3 months 15 domains were deindexed. That network is 100 sites large, how many sites do you think are left after 1 year? Nopes nada exactly.

    That's why you see people selling high PR blog posts for $6-$8 that stay for a long time on the homepage and that are surrounded with unique well written content.

    Total bargain if you ask me!

        the only problem with this is you 'hope' someone with a PR5+ site links to you...chances are if you do get links it will be from low PR sites that wont do you much good. It's a valid point, but there is a lot of hope involved...

    Wahaha,

    Keep at it. Reaching the top with Google takes time and effort depending on the product or service you offer. Building quality backlinks is the answer to obtaining high rankings with Google.

    Build Quality Backlinks

    1. Article Submission - Write as many useful and informational articles about subjects connected to your product or services. Upload these articles to various article directories with high page rank like Ezinearticles and Articlebase.

    2. Write Press Releases - Distribute press releases to websites like Newswire.

    3. Join Forums - Provide useful information to users on forums related to products or services your website offers. Attach your website's signature with the article.

    4. Blogging - Use blogging platforms like Typepad, Wordpress, and others. Give information related to your product or service that will draw the interest of other users.

    5. Social Media - Create your own videos promoting your product or service along with your website and post them to places like YouTube, Netflix, Metacafe, Etc.

    Do not build links around just one phrase, use a variety on your website.

    Write good articles in your niche on different topics.

    Avoid linking with anything connected to spam.

    Find what people are searching for related to your product or services and create quality
    content that they will share because it was so useful to them.

    Just wanna warn you, about competition that you targetted. If it's reasonable to beat and good ONpage SEO, a little backlinks (although it's that good ol' backlinks) it will boost you to page #1.

    Then, you just reverse engineering your competitors backlinks.

    Good luck.
