Backlinks need to be made somewhere and this post is simply a list of places where you can make them. If you don’t know what backlinks are, then you may want to check out my first backlinking strategy post. This is not an in-depth post on how to make the backlinks. It just lays out the places where your backlinks could be on the Internet. Later on in this backlinking strategy series you will learn more about each of these places and tips and tricks on how to use them to your full advantage.
Backlinks are very important and they all help your blog. That’s assuming you don’t use black hat techniques(ways that Google deem as unfair) like spamming a blog. But some help more then others.
Backlinks from a website with a higher page rank are more helpful then those from websites with a lesser page rank. There are many websites where you can enter a website address and get their page rank. I personally use Google Page Rank Checker.
I will take the chance right now to say that I personally believe you should never buy backlinks or any type of directory listings. There are some that do help, but most of them are scams. Buying these is like playing the lottery. Most of the time you just lose money.
There are many different places that backlinks can go. To get a solid list of backlinks you really need to try to get as many backlinks as you can on all of these places.
The Places Are:
Social Networking Websites: Facebook and Twitter are littered with links. But I don’t think these actually count towards backlinks. Only some of the lesser used Social Networking Websites count as backlinks, such as Bloggers.
Forums: On forums you can edit your signature and at the bottom of each post you can have your blog’s link and on most forums these count as backlinks. I’m basically only on the Website Babble forum.
Other People’s Blogs: When you comment on other blogger’s blogs, most of the time they have a form and a spot to put your blog’s address. These usually count as backlinks.
Link Trading: If you exchange links with another blogger and they put your blog’s address on their blog, that counts as a backlink.
Your Articles: If you write articles for a revenue-sharing website or any other article writing website then you could add links to your blog in your articles.
This is just the basic idea of each method of getting backlinks. In the next few posts in this Backlinking Series I will go in-depth on each one of these methods. So stay tuned for that.
In the meantime. Comment this blog with any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions. Also I’m thinking about starting a podcast pretty soon. Tell me what you think of that. Thank each and every one of you, for all of your support.
