Backlinks plays a great role in ranking a website in search engine result page. Creating quality backlinks is very important to rank well in Google. In this post, I am going to show you how to create quality backlinks for your blog?
There are 200+ factors that Google will analyze your site for good ranking and credibility. Backlink is also one of them. In a simple word, we can describe that a backlink is a link that point to your blog from other website or blog. It literally passes the link juice to your blog.
Let’s dive into detail to know more about on how to create quality backlinks for your blog and boost your ranking and authority.
1. Guest Posting
Guest posting is one of the best and legit ways to create quality backlinks for your blog. Google and even users like to explore new and fresh content. Guest posting is one of the best ways to spread content across the web.
Almost 90% of blog around the web is accepting guest posting. Why? because they need content for their blog and in return they give their guest poster a link back. It’s a win-win situation for both of them.
All you need to approach a blog which is accepting guest post on their blog. You can find it out by visiting their write for us page.
Interlinking your post will not only help you to build a good link structure but also help users to find out more content on your blog and increase the dwell time on your blog.
Since internal links don’t give you a good SEO boost, but they will help you increase the overall usability of your website, and it’s also a great way to build links using your preferred anchor text.
Just like any other technique, don’t over do it and don’t create more than 100 internal links/page or you’ll make your website look suspicious.
3. Blogger Outreach
Blogger outreach is a great ways to build backlinks for your blog. There are thousands of blogger out their in each and every niche. Many of their blog holds a good authority.
All you need is to approach them by emails or you can create a good bond with them by dropping constructive comments on their blog. Share their contents, etc.
Many generous bloggers like Ryan Biddulph, Donna Merrill, Lisa Sicard, Muddasir, Anthony Gaenzle will help their fellow bloggers to grow. I personally build a good relationship with all of them and they are just awesome.
4. Participate in Interviews and Roundup post
hen your blog started growing and people acknowledge your work, you will start receiving interview request and roundup post requests from other bloggers.
It is one of the best ways to get quality backlinks for your blog. In my initial days of blogging, I have generated plenty of backlinks by participating in interviews and roundup posts.
5. Broken Link Building
Broken link building is a time consuming task to create backlinks for your blog. You need to find out broken links on other relevant blogs and approach their owner to let them know about their broken link.
In return the blog owner can offer a backlink for you and they will replace the broken link with your new link.
I have personally done it for a few times. You can use third part broken link checker like ahref.
6. Blog Commenting
Many of us think that blog commenting is dead as most of the links are nofollow. Google officially didn’t announce that they will not count the nofollow links. They only told that the link juice will not pass if the link has nofollow attribute.
Blog commenting is an effective way to create good backlinks for your blog. You need to submit authentic and genuine comments on blogs. Commenting solely for links doesn’t make any sense. You will soon get banned from that blog.
Constructive blog comments can also help you to build a good relationship with other fellow bloggers.
7. Use Social media Sites
Social Media sites is not only a great place to drive traffic but also helps you indirectly in SEO. I personally believe that social signal also plays a vital role in ranking. Google will count your social signal as a factor to check the authenticity of your content.
Create a Facebook page for your blog and update it regularly can help you to boost your SEO.
Similarly, you can use social media sites like Twitter, Instagram, reddit, etc. to share your content.
8. Create Wiki Links
Many Wiki links are now of nofollow attribute. But creating a wiki links is very fruitful to build a good backlink score for your blog.
I know it is not that easy to create backlinks especially for newbies. But you can definitely give it a try to create wiki backlinks.
If you have budget you can hire a reliable person or agencies to create wiki backlinks for your blog.
