How to Create High Quality Backlinks
Before I tell you about How to create high quality backlinks i want to let you know about some essential things. Let’s have a look.
Create Internal Links :-
Creating internal links are essential to pass link juice all over the blog, basically this are the links which points to another page of the same blog. Internal links make it easy for Search engine to crawl your whole blog easily.
Internal links reduce bounce rate as it increase the amount of time spend by audience on your blog by pointing to more related articles.
There are Two ways of getting Backlinks

1. Earning Backlinks Naturally :-
Links created by you are not natural backlinks, the links you get by convincing others that your blog has relevant content and can help your readers are natural backlinks. Few things which will help you to earn backlinks naturally are :-
- Top Quality Rich Content.
- By requesting backlinks to other authors.

NB :- Don’t go for buying and selling links Google is actually against exchange of links, money etc.
Many top bloggers will not give backlink to you easily as you are new. So it’s totally on you How to convince other bloggers to give a link back to you. Link building is the major reason due to which many blog suffers Google penalties, even if you had tricked Google surely one day Google will find out and How you are tricking him.
2. Creating Backlinks by Own :-
Creating high quality backlinks is not easy sometime over doing it may led your blog to hit a Google penalty. There are many ways of creating backlinks by own but every time you will get a do follow is not mandatory. I had listed some ways of creating backlinks below :-
- Guest Posting
- Article Marketing
- Linking your Blog with Social media
- Commenting on other relevant blogs, forums and answering questions
1. Guest Posting :-
It is one of the best way to get your name, company name in front of new audience. Once you had created enough good quality content you can start reaching out to other relevant blogs in your industry whose audience could be potential clients. Link building tips via guest posts:-
- Don’t think guest posting as link building strategies just give your best quality content and think about to drive visitor back to your website and develop an authority among them.
- Read other author guest post on the similar blog and try to adapt their style to increase your chance of getting your post approved.
- When it comes to link back to your website most likely you will get via Author Bio, make sure to link back to your blog and social media profiles through it.
2. Article Marketing :-
Article Marketing is another way of getting high quality relevant links to your blog/website. Many popular article marketing site like EzineArticles got hit by Google Panda update and Since they are majorly focusing on Quality rather than quantity. I would rather like to go for Article Community site for building links like Hubpages where member are free to connect with each other via Personal messaging, commenting on profiles and forums. This way you can find some bloggers of your industry who have good potential clients engage with them and build relationship and expand your network.
3. Linking Blog with Social Media :-
Linking your blog with social media helps you get backlinks but now a days you many social media only allow no follow links. But still no follow links from this social sites help you to drive traffic. You can add link on Twitter, Facebook. LinkedIn and Google+ profiles.
4. Commenting On Relevant Blogs and Forums :-
This is one of the easiest way of link building, but find relevant blogs is quite difficult which allow do follow link via comments. Mostly CommentLuv enabled blogs are those blogs which majorly allow dofollow link via comment.
Commenting on various forums will help you get quality backlinks from Signature but remember you should not spam them as moderators are quite active on popular forums who will surely ban you from using it.
