Old school backlinking though is not a good idea, meaning on-page optimization, some article submissions, commenting and the like are not going to help you a lot. Neither will senuke, or any other mass submission software.
Guest posting is a decent way to build links, yet it is dead slow, as I mentioned in the post: “2 extreme SEO strategies that will help you rank”
The post itself reveals some awesome backlinking tactics and it is a good idea to read it… now let’s jump into gangsta style backlinking, because it is the ultimate way to rank fast… which is basically becoming popular on the internet.
That’s right – infographics are the first thing to concentrate on if you want exposure, as they tend to become viral pretty easy, when they are cool. Once they get viral, you get a lot of traffic and possibly some authoritative backlinks from relevant blogs.
Quizzes are fun… people love them, the same way as infographics you can make them go viral, plus you can provide people a way to embed them, or add them on their sites, giving you a backlink with the wanted keyword.
Comics might seem a little childish to you, but they tend to spread very well on social media. Here is the place to go for comics. They don’t have any factual data, but they are really funny and are an awesome way to promote your site, offer, or just to get people to remember your brand.
As for backlinking – they tend to work just perfect. Yahoo claims this comic itself pulled in 3 000 natural backlinks.
This backlinking method is the most seen online, since it is simple, takes not more than an hour and gets amazing results.
You don’t have to solicit for the backlinks. When your review is cool, sites would start linking to it. For this to happen though you have to really write an amazing review, and not some pitchy 300 worded post.
And those links would not happen over night. Good things take time.
Everybody wants to know what’s hot… which is the main reason for sites like smashing magazine to be one of the most popular online. That’s what they do – break down up and coming trends.
As a result they get about 200 comments, along with 5 000 backlinks from one single piece of content.
This tactic is a bit old, yet it still works pretty well. Make list posts, but don’t write too long introductions… go right to the meat instead. You will have to do this and see if it works for you. I have to say lists have brought in a lot of backlinks and traffic to Wealth Magnate.
This is the easiest backlinking strategy, it is also extremely efficient. Just take some photos and publish them on your page. Let people know they are royalty free and ask for a link back if they use them. This way you will get a lot of backlinks, because everybody publishes content nowadays, therefore needs images.
There really are numerous ways of getting backlinks, some take more time, some less, some are more efficient, some – not so much… but reality is you have to get as many backlinks to your site as you can, and make backlinking as natural as possible. In other words, Think of SEO as an expensive long-term investment.
