Backlink is considered to be the next most important backbone after quality content in every successful blog, coupled with lower AlexaRank as it be considered by an advertiser’s that may want to place direct advert on our blog, since for a blog to move from grass to grace, quality content, quality traffic, and quality backlinks are mostly important. And most often, it’s very difficult to generate quality backlink for any blog most especially new blogs with less authority, popularity, and lower Google PageRank. But the only and the most virtuous way for blog backlinks is following the natural means of blog backlink which we are going to discuss under this headline.
Note that am sharing the simple tricks that work for me in building my blog backlink to its present level within two month of aggressive blogging, and you too can learn from it.
1. Guest blogging: The most effective and efficient way to get quality backlinks is from guest blogging. I previously discuss how guest blogging had helped me within a month of this noble blog you are reading to acquire less than 800k Alexa Rank within 30 – working days of aggressive blogging.
It’s very obvious that when submitting a blog post, at least one or two link will be definitely point back to your site or blog (Author bio for instance) and these links are what I referred to as natural blog backlink.
Many bloggers find it difficult to guest blogging just because they want to update their blog regularly, it’s good but guest post once per week can be of better chance for you to start building you blog backlinks.
2. Comment on other blogs: I can even say the backlink from blog comment supersede that of guest blogging because it does not really required racking of brain before leaving a reply on what you read as an average blogger.
I have read on many blogs where within the period of 3 – 4 months they were ranked 3 on Google page rank. Isn’t that wonderful? What do you think it helps them? Quality contents alone? No! Quality backlink is also one of the reasons.
Although I must confess that leaving comment in every blog is not easy but the rewards deem it fit. For people to click through your comment URL on other blog leading to your blog you need to leave a reason comment.
And how do you leave a reasonable comment? Read the whole article to understand the message of the article before knowing which type comment required of you, not just saying good article, nice post, blog bookmarked, etc. Endeavour to leave a comment like a pre-blogger that warrant quality reply.
3. Submit your blog to blog directory: This can be referred to as traditional method of blog backlinks from my own instinct and it’s often compulsory for bloggers to submit their blogs URL to blog directory but excessive submission might lead to Google hitting your blog from search engine.
One of the best directories with it own algorithm is technorati and it’s more or less like a search engine. I must tell, you gain backlink from this website as well, and you can as well drive quality traffic to you blog from this directory by claiming your site.
4. Article submission: Article submission not only gives you blog or website quality backlink but quality traffic as well. Article submission is a little bit different from guest blog.
All you need is to submit your published article to top rated directory with a link to your site but you article must be the one published by yourself. Some of which are Ezearticle (Your articles will under go some scrutiny before publishing), Blogster, Goarticle etc.
5. Forum: Many called this archaic method of driving quality traffic and gaining quality backlink, but I must tell you that forum still remains one of the best ways to drive quality traffic to blog and at the same time building backlinks.
Responding to users question, leaving a comment on existing thread, creating a new thread with the aim of helping people in the first place will drive traffic to your blog and anchored along with backlinks. Proper use of forum with profile signature is a quality way to generate quality traffic and building quality backlink to your blog as well.
6. Blog community: Gosh, I love this. There are tens of blogging communities on the internet that can be used to generated quality backlink. Although it does not take a day for a new babe to start crawling but notwithstanding the babe will start crawling one day, active participation in blogging community like BlogEngae, Bizsugar will bring back some juice to your blog backlink and also increases your blog traffic. Bizsugar really suck, just try it.
Conclusion: I believed the aforementioned points on how I was a able to building backlinks to this present level will definitely redeem your lost after Google penguin update if you are once a victim and if you are on the best side of Google that you escaped their update, you can still make use of this strategy to build you blog backlink before the next Google PageRank update.
