Get Quality Backlinks in 30 Minutes!

Link Building is done for two main reasons, for traffic and for search engines. Search engines take links as votes for a website. The more the links to a page, the more a search engine values it. Getting back links are not easy but here are some tips that will prove helpful.

  • Commenting on ‘Do-follow’ blogs

Not every comment of yours on a blog counts , as most blogs use ‘No Follow’. These no follow links carry no value to your blog.

But ‘Do Follow’ blogs are blogs without the ‘No Follow’. These links carry value and prove beneficial.

A common question : How do I find ‘Do Follow’ blogs?

There are search engines that refine their results to only ‘Do Follow’ blogs such as Do Follow Diver.

  • Forum Signature Links

Forums have a signature link space that accompanies your posts. Many forums have ‘Do Follow: signature links.

  • Link Directories

Directory submission is a very popular method in which you submit your links to various directories. These will give you no traffic but will count as a link.

  • Article Directories

In this method You write articles and post them on article sites. The articles contain backlinks to your site. You get a few visitors through this.

  • Press Release

The title says it all. You write an something about your new website and post it on press release websites.

  • Galleries

If you have a very well designed website submit it to website galleries. These will bring one-time visitors as they may not be interested in your content.

  • Link Exchange

Make sure to exchange links with websites of your niche as these help in terms of traffic and search engines. Always keep a link exchange page on your website.

There are some links which do not help at all in case of search engines but they do get you some good visitors such as:

  • Yahoo Answers- Write answers relating to your websites niche, and put your site as the source. You will get about 10 visitors on an average.
  • Wikipedia- Have a really popular website?  Create an article on wikipedia. It will get visitors as it may turn up as a random article.
  • Social Bookmarking: Submit to websites like Digg and Stumble Upon. If your article is ‘stumbled’ or dugg’ you will get traffic in return. This method can get you hundreds of visits.

Leave a comment here and you will get a backlink :)

UPDATE: If you are a top commentator on Let’s Sermo, you will get sitewide Do Follow links.

    I haven’t seen this type of well written info anywhere on the net before. Very precise and to the point.

  12. Josh Self says:

    Great article! Alot of people know about backlinks but not how to get them. Thanks for the info from an obviously pretty cool dude!

  13. Kyle says:

    Good tips obviously but nothing new here. It could be good for people to set a schedule up, say 20 mins a day for blog commenting and link building. This will quickly increase one’s back links. I wish I had more time to be doing that.

  14. Thanks for the article. I started a male humor blog a while back and had been updating it with frequent content but was not able to generate much page rank or traffic. I followed your tips and am already at a PR2 and traffic is on the rise. ThingsWhitePeopleHate.com or ThingsPeopleHate.com, check em out!

  15. Sacramento says:

    I’ve used Yahoo Answers successfully. Sometimes it will show up in the search engines for a question like – where should I go to see the best fireworks. It’s quite time consuming though, you not only need to find questions that you can answer well, you have to create a network so your answer will be selected best answer. It would be worth it if they offered “do follow” on the links.

    By the way, how do you decide which commenters get “do follow” status and which get “no follow” status?

  16. Marian says:

    Thank you for the great backlink ideas. The only one I did not know about was submitting a creative website to Website Galleries. I am redesigning my entire website and I will submit my site to galleries when my site is done. Thank you, Marian

  17. Nicolas S says:

    I think Article Directories and Press Release sites are great way to get quality unique’s, but a really small percentage of bloggers/site owners do this. I guess it’s their problem but I would like to know why: sure it’s time consuming BUT it can’t be the only reason??

    And to get your site into Wikipedia, as you said, you need to be REALLY popular. Not everyone can do this.

  18. jens Swelson says:

    On some social networks like Hyves you can drop your link too. They can be valuable because some Hyves spots have a high pagerank. (3 till 5)

  20. To my knowledge, there is nothing you can do about a site linking to your site. At best, you can send them an email requesting them to remove the link.

  21. I have been using a free back link exchange site for a while now and it does work. Although, you have to be careful about what links you accept, it can boost your site rank and send some visitors to your website.

  22. Using these automated link exchange sites will also boost your backlinks and you will get many relevant links to your site. You can find much more sites like these but to be honest I think these ones will do a perfect job.

  26. Thank you for the link to the Do-Follow Diver, I’ve been looking through Google results manually trying to find do-follow blogs so this will save me loads of time.

  27. Thanks for the tips. I find that article distribution through the mig ezine such as goarticles, ezinearticles etc works well. Some of my articles go on to get pageranks and they make my links even more powerful. Whenever I start a new website I always post articles in order to initially get seen by the SE’s.

  32. All great advice. I particularly like using Yahoo Answers. It has many benefits for SEO rankings but also for getting new sites indexed quickly. I use a firefox tool from SEO Book to check links are do-follow for forums and the like – I highly recommend it. I think its very important to get a good range of link types – you definitely shouldnt get ALL article links or ALL forum links – try to mix it up for best results.

  35. Great collection of tips regarding seo. Nice man.

  36. used tires says:

    I would agree with leaving comments on do-follow blogs as a great way to earn backlinks and traffic, but it is also a way to get more exposure to your website, and for your name to become more recognized, especially if you are commenting in related industries. On a side note.. anyone that does do comments should always try to leave a quality comment… one of my personal pet peeves is when people leave bad comments and do not even put forth an effort :(

    Till then,


  37. pokkisam says:

    Yahoo answers is great from my experience

  38. some real good tips there i guess, directory submissions are no good becuase they take long to show up where as article writing has proven to be alot better for driving traffic.
