Link building is the most important part of SEO!

When other people link back to your website/blog posts, it significantly improves your Domain Authority (DA) and overall visibility on search engines.

So the more backlinks you have, the better it is.

But the challenge is—how do you get other websites to link back to your blog?

The challenge is even bigger for new blog owners. After all, why a nice website would want to link to a new and unestablished blog?!

Note: Getting external links from poor quality websites/directories do more harm than good.

Here are 5 ways to get backlinks for free for your blog:

1. Guest Blogging

Find blogs – relevant to your niche – who accepts guest posts in return of backlinks. First, pitch them your ideas. Once accepted, write for them.

2. Skyscraper Technique

It’s a technique by Backlink specialist Brian Dean. It includes 4 simple steps-

● Find the most popular post in your niche

● Write a post that’s even better than that with more insights

● Create a list of all those people who have linked the original post (Step 1) on their websites

● Send an email informing these people that you have written a better post that their target audience would find even more resourceful.

There are very high chances that you will get the backlink.

3. Blog Commenting

Comment on others’ blogs or forum and leave the link of your own posts.

Note: One, do this only where it makes sense else your link would be treated as spam. Second, make sure the comment system offers you dofollow links.

4. Link Exchange

There are countless other blogs/businesses who want backlinks.

Talk to these individuals and mutually agree to have each other’s links on respective blogs.

Note: Only select a good and relevant website with high PageRank and PR Quality.

5. Feature Niche Influencers

Find your industry’s influencers and feature them in your post (take their interviews, review their products or more).

Inform them about this post via social media. Ask them to add the link on their website; few of them would be happy to do that.

Tip: Pick a less popular influencer; they are more likely to notice and backlink.

These are 5 of many ways to get organic backlinks. ACT!!
