Build Backlinks using Blogs and Forums
Did you know that there are ways you can easily build backlinks and improve your website rankings just by taking the time to post on other people’s blogs and forums? Yes, this is true and it can be done only by spending just 1-2 hours online everyday, posting on other people’s blogs or forums. However, there is a way to do it to get the maximum effect. The common thing you see many people do is they search for just any blog and start spamming them. It doesn’t work that way because most of the bloggers now have an anti spam plugin installed on their blogs so, any spamming just gets deleted from the blog and then the link inserted is flagged as a spam link and sent to google or any other spam authority. This kind of silly tactics can hurt your rankings and destroy your website’s credibility.
There is a way to do it and that is by posting something thoughtful. Now, the most common question that comes to mind is “How do I post something so meaningful that even when I insert my link, the blog owner would just ignore it regardless of my limited knowledge in that field?” It is simple… Go to the forums and ask questions or just lurk around reading people’s posts. This would give you an idea of what to write on and how to write it.
Remember that forums are a complete goldmine because this is where you have everyone interested in a particular topic. There aren’t so many time wasters there. The second option you might have is do a quick search on the topic, look for what no one has previously said, and say it. Avoid stupid one-liners like “nicely said, You can visit my website for blah blah blah” and you will find your links left on the blogs and forums.
Also in terms of relevance to your site niche and content, it would be much better to look for related resources. If you have for example a medical website, try to find medical related blogs and forums. There is a word saying that “any clean link is a good link”, agree with that but apart from the general backlinks you build, you will need backlinks related to your niche. Avoid the low quality, spammy websites and don’t post in there – the last thing you want are backlinks coming from untrusted sources as all these will create a bad neighbourhood around your website…
