These are 8 of my favorite ways to create one way in bound backlinks Quickly.
But don’t feel that you need to use all 8 methods.
All of the methods listed work very well and will start generating traffic quickly, however pick the 3-5 methods that resonate with you the best and use them consistently.
The operative word here is ‘consistently’.
No method works without creating a plan for getting it done and then doing it every day. So don’t give up, keep at it and you WILL see results
1. Comment on Relevant Blog Posts
Building links with blog comments is a quick and easy way to get backlinks. Just be sure that whatever comments you make they are relevant and useful, otherwise your efforts will be wasted.
To find relevant blogs to comment on that accept comments without requiring you to login, use these search strings to enter into the Google search bar.
- site: .com inurl:blog “post a comment” -”comments closed” -”you must be logged in” “ADD YOUR KEYWORD”
- site: .org inurl:blog “post a comment” -”comments closed” -”you must be logged in” “ADD YOUR KEYWORD”
- site: .net inurl:blog “post a comment” -”comments closed” -”you must be logged in” “ADD YOUR KEYWORD”
When making comments, use your best keyword phrase in the ‘Name’ portion of the comment box and deep link with the complete URL of your page you are trying to build links for.
If you find that your comments are not accepted, then try making sure the blog is using ‘Comment Luv’.
2. Guest Blogging
Good content is king and if you can get your content on a topic relevant authority site, you’ll not only be building some great backlinks, you’ll be getting some awesome traffic as well. So far, guest posting still brings me the most traffic and backlinks.
But writing great guest blog posts and writing them quickly can be a tall order.
Your guest blog post doesn’t have to be 1000 words, in fact 300-400 words is fine, however be sure your post does the following:
- Has a narrowly focused topic
- Has a catchy, compelling title
- Offers useful, specific information without a lot of generalizations
Next find bloggers that you know in your niche and send them the guest blog post. Don’t ask them if you can send a blog post, that wastes everyone’s valuable time, simply send your post and ask the blog owner to respond if they use it. That way if they don’t use it you can use it somewhere else.
Also you’ll want to know when your guest post is published so you can Tweet and Facebook it.
Resource Tip: I liked Chris Garrett’s ‘Guest Posting guide‘. It’s a quick read with tons of tips for getting the most out of guest posting.
3. Article Marketing
Article marketing is still an excellent way to generate backlinks. Publish articles on ezines, information sites, media sites, and article directories.
The best success I’ve had with submitting articles is to find article sites that require unique articles that you haven’t posted on other sites around the web.
To find quality sites to submit articles to, do a Google search using the following:
intitle:”submit an article” yourtopic
4. Social Bookmarking
A super quick way to get backlinks is to bookmark your content on “social bookmarking” sites like StumbleUpon, Digg, LinkedIn and Reddit and yes, even Twitter has social bookmarking ability. If you’re not sure how to use twitter for social bookmarking, you can find out more about that here:
Bookmarking your content pages on these sites allows others to see your content and share it with others. Most social bookmarking sites are free. Simply set up an account and start bookmarking. If you have a WordPress blog try using the Twitter Facebook Social Share plugin. I use it here on Homenotion, that way I can book mark each post with just a few clicks.
5. Forum Interaction
Go to topic specific forums and answer questions that forum members have. Use forums that allow you to attach a signature line to your entries. This is useful if you’re trying to get traffic to your home page but it can also work for getting links to internal pages as well.
To find a forum in your niche, simple enter into Google ‘yourtopic forum’, without the quotes.
6. Create Mini Sites
Mini Sites are simple 3-5 page sites that offer good content related to a specific topic and contain links that point back to your main website or specific website pages.
You can create mini-sites using these tools:
7. Create a Testimonial
Whenever you purchase and use a product, get some extra mileage from the product by writing a testimonial for the product. Most product owners are thrilled to get a good testimonial and will also allow testimonials to contain a live link back to the author, this shows a credible source.
Testimonials don’t have to be long but they should explain why you chose the product or service, what you liked best and who would most benefit from the product. If you can include a head shot with your testimonial. It may not be used but it’s another was for the product owner to show a credible source.
8. Create a Press Release
If you’ve just published your website or blog, create a press release. In your press release you can get a live link back to your website containing your anchor text.
If you’ve never created a press release before Webwire has a press release format that you can follow to create your release.
Once your release is created, send to PRweb which is a leading press release site. PRweb does charge a fee however the publicity and backlinks you’ll get far outweigh the cost in value.
