Effective Ways Of Gaining Backlinks

ID-100215040The post today will be looking at the different ways you can gain backlinks that can help boost your website rankings on search engines and get more traffic. Seeing as my new product is focusing on SEO, I thought why not give people a taste of what they can expect.

There are three different types of backlinks:

Inbound – Links to your website from external sites

Outbound – Links to other sites from your own

Internal – Links between pages/content on your site

Obviously the main one to focus on is inbound backlinks as these will increase your website ranking and drive traffic to you. But to gain inbound backlinks you have to put some work in, the ways I’m about to show you will help you to gain these without any stress or failure because of poor paid for backlinks.

Social Media – You should aim to have a profile on at least one site (like Facebook, Twitter etc.) where you regularly post and are active on. If you post content that people want to see, build relationships, comment on other posts and give useful tips/advice people will take notice of you. If you also share links to content on your website without appearing spammy, people will probably share your links in their posts to all their friends because they like what you do, therefore gaining an effective backlink (possibly more!).

Blog commenting – This example is kind of like social media in that if you offer helpful, useful, insightful comments on other peoples blogs, the persons whose blog it is might take notice of you and feature your website in a future post, once again gaining a useful backlink. Also as with Social media you can leave a link to your website in posts, just don’t appear spammy.

Guest blogging – This is a great way to gain many userful backlinks. Guest blogging allows you to share your expertise and provide useful tips to a new audience that does not know you yet. if you create a great first impression and are able to include a link to your website doing this, you can create many great quality backlinks and more followers to your site.

There are plenty more ways to gain backlinks, but I have put together what I believe to be some of the best ways to gain quality backlinks without too much work.

    Hi Stuart

    Guest blogging is a really good one if you get on a high traffic site with quality content. I think JT offers a guest post slot as well. I also offer guest posting and on the flip side it can provide more quality content for your site while you concentrate on your business.

    Many thanks
