Ways of Getting Backlinks for free

For Bloggers, back-links plays a vital role for their traffic and page rankings. For those who don’t know about backlinks, let me tell you- Backlinks are the links directed towards your blog/site. They are also knows as Inbound links (IBL’s). The number of backlinks is an indication of the popularity or importance of that website. While backlinks give you a better ranking from Search Engines, another reason to achieve quality backlinks is to entice visitors to come to your website.

Using following ways, you can get backlinks to your website for free :

1. Unique content

I’ve already mentioned how helpful your content could be if it’s unique. Write quality posts based on your blog topic. If your site have subpages, don’t forget to give a backlink to your homepage. This would really help you.

2. Publicize your RSS feeds

Submit your Blog RSS feed to blogging directories, blog search engines. Some directories require their backlink on your blog but some of will provide it for free.

3. You comment I follow

Don’t avoid readers’ comments, always try to follow them up with a reply. Also, some blogs use this policy so, Voice your opinion on these blogs.

4. Participate in active forums

Find your kind of forums- follow the topics posted by fellow members and you can use your site url as your signature to get free backlink. Some examples of active forums are Blogcrowds and Think-Digit.

5. Build Contacts

Build good relationships with fellow bloggers of your niche and whenever you feel that you wrote a good post, message them with your post link.

Recently, I saw a new division on my WordPress dashboard named as “Incoming Links” and it help me getting a fair amount of traffic so, I found this topic important for you guys and posted as many ways to get backlinks. If you have some more tricks, do share it with us from the comment form below.

Digit forum do not allow using link in signature, they are very strict abt links.. they do not allow posting links and pictures in signature.. I suggest that you remove digitforum as example forum. There are plenty of others polite enough than them.

That’s fine Ricky,
I replaced the forum name with chip-india. Thanks for the info.

Keep visiting

    Hey Rohit. Fellow Indian this side. I really liked your content and am going to try and be a regular visitor here. However, I would like to point out that you have only changed the text to chip-india. The link still points to digit forums. Also, do check out my blog and let me know what you feel. A beginner like me could always learn from an established such as you.

I was looking for ideas on how to get free back links for my dog’s site and came upon your post.

I find your ideas useful. Thanks to that. My site is just a month old and is poor in inbound links.

I hope I’ll be able to get a few good ones after reading your post. Do you know of any free, truly effective and legit software/program that I could use to get quality inbound links?

Keep sharing your good ideas!

Using unique content with really good titles for articles is my favorite way. Hopefully other bloggers will want to link to your site!

Don’t be too much worried about links. It is usually considered that the more links Google sees, the more traffic you get. But back links can easily be achieved by keeping fresh and unique and original content on the site. A site that has freshly and regularly updated content attracts more traffic. If users are impressed and satisfied with your content they will automatically cast a vote. The most important thing is not code, not page rank but the content. It is said “Content is the king” The greatest challenge should be to create websites that are useful to others. Palcomonline.com

I couldn’t agree more. But it is a useful tool to get started.

Year One Online - June 21, 2009

This is nicely written article, but the tips are well scattered on the internet. If someone is blogging for an year, they could easily say that these tips are not enough. Anyhow, I would like to keep in touch with fellow bloggers like you and want to make a request. Can you include my blog http://www.techlikes.com on your blogroll if any?

When I post a comment does the URL that I entered into the website field count as a backlink or do I need to leave a link at the end of my comments? I have been wondering about this for a while.

Your tips are great tips. I have been speaking to one of my family members about SEO and I was giving her some of these same tips.

    Rohit Langde - August 26, 2012

    When you enter URL in the field provided like the way you did here, It is counted as backlink. You don’t have to mention it again in comment.

      gamerelated - August 28, 2012

      Thank you Rohit Langde,

      I am still new to writing and SEO. I appreciate that you took the time to answer my question.
