#1. Ask other publishers to mention your link in their article
The idea of getting backlinks from this method is quite weird. But believe me, if your article deserves you can easily generate quality backlinks.
Now, Let me explain the idea behind this method. In order to get backlinks from this method, you need to follow some steps given below
Find blogs having high domain authority & page rank. But remember that always find blogs which have same blog niche or topic.
For example, if your blog niche is SEO then find those blogs which are similar to this blog niche.

Here, search for the broken links which are similar to your published article or that you have written earlier.
Finally, send an effective email to those publishers and ask them for mentioning your corresponding link within their articles.

#3. Guest posting
Guest posting is very common among the bloggers. It helps to generate a relationship with other bloggers. But most of the bloggers start misusing it. They write guest posts over and over again to earn quality backlinks. But they do not know about Google’s penalties.
Google always keep an eye on site’s statistics. If Google finds any unnatural changes in site’s statistics, then Google may penalise your site. So, I suggest you to do guest posting but make sure you limit it.
Things that you need to remember before publishing guest posting
- Write quality content.
- Write for visitors not for getting backlinks.
- Do not infringe rules of guest posting.
- Always give credit to the owner.
- Write professionally. Your write-up should be quite influencing.
- Do not make grammar mistakes.
- Read some other posts to get an idea of owner’s write-up.
- Don’t repeat it more than twice a month.
- Choose similar topics for guest posting.
- Remember content relevancy.
If you follow these rules, then guest posting is incredible. But if you don’t it is just waste of time.
#4. Write in real fact
It is always a good practice to write on real facts because theoretical write-up is not always worked effectively. You need to include some real case studies and practical results to grasp attention because it encourages other blog owners to mention your article in their post.
But here the question may arise that ‘How do I write posts based on real facts?’
If you are serious about blogging, you can create real content against your competitors. But if you are blogging for the passing time then you never create that kind of content.
To create content based on real facts, you need to do following things.
- Digg deep down: – learn all the available content from the top 10 results. (say SEO)
- Check your ability: – After digging, check your potential to know how much you can provide to the audience.
- Once you complete both the operations, start adding value to your post.
- Finally, you will able to write articles on real facts which are not exactly available on the internet.
#5. Social media engagement
If you want to get free backlinks indirectly, then start using this method. Share your content on social media sites and let your followers know about the content that it has updated.
It is an effective way to get both Dofollow as well as Nofollow backlinks.
#6. Submit your content to high page rank directories
There are a ton of directories available on the internet. You can submit your content to those directories to earn quality backlinks.
Keep following things in your mind before submitting your article.
- Your content should be pure and unique.
- Copyright content is not allowed.
- Fill out whole directory form carefully.
- Before submitting your content, do a short inquiry to know trustworthiness of directory.
- Never submit your content to unknown directories.
- Don’t participate in a paid mode of directories to get instant backlinks.
#7. Generate an email list
An email list is one of the best ways to create quality links for businesses. Because when you publish a new post/product on your site, every user notified by email and can link your content to his blog.
Let me give an example to explain you the importance of email list.
Suppose you have an email list of 1000 subscribers and you publish a new post on your blog. In that case, as your content goes live, all the subscribers will automatically notify via email. Now here you can think of almost 1000 users are already available to respond you, means there is 100% possibility that at least 10 users out of 1000 subscribers can mention this article on their blogs.
So, From here you’ve understood the importance of building an email list.
#8. Create something more interesting & out of the box
There is a saying “good is not good if excellent is accepted.”
What do you understand with this quotation? It means you write well but you don’t know whether it is good or excellent.
But if you write something interesting or out of the box, it automatically becomes excellent.
So, doing something out of the box can easily be appreciated. People like to refer that types of content.
