Struggling to Build Quality Blog Backlinks?
If you’re a serious Blogging Entrepreneur … or someone considering Blogging for Income,
… then you know how important Blog Backlinks are to the success of your niche site.
Ranking high on the search engines … such as Google … has gotten cut throat these days.
If you’re to make serious income online from free, search traffic … you’ll need to rank high! Otherwise, you’re just playing the “Blogging Hobby” game.
You’ve landed on this page for one reason … and that’s to learn How to Build Quality Blog Backlinks.
I’m by no means an expert … and would be fooling myself if I said I was,
.. but being a serious blogger, I know John Chow (JohnChow.com) is a heavy hitter when it comes to SEO and Building Quality Backlinks.
I just came back from his site. He’s got some awesome tutorial info. there for both the Newbie and the Seasoned Blogger.
Top 7 Ways of Building Quality Blog Backlinks
#1 Contextual Citation Strategy
Simply put … as a blogger, you can’t profess to know everything. This article I’ve written here is a great example of this first strategy.
You would be lying to your readers if you made this claim. We all learn from others and each other.
Just like in the back of a book (index) …
when you link out to high quality, content rich, keyword related articles that “ADD” to your readers experience,
… Google will reward you and pay you back with traffic. It’s a simple, but fundamental strategy.
Do it for your readers in mind.
#2 Above The Fold Links
Don’t you just hate when you land on a site completely cluttered with Ads?
It almost makes it impossible to not get distracted by the ads.
Instead of reading through the information you came to the site for …
your attention is diverted to the banners.
Google views these site as spammy in nature … and it will be difficult for your blog to rank high if you’ve got a clutter of “Above the Fold” banners.
Sprinkle High Quality blog backlinks above the fold instead.
Again, think Quality Content and the reader’s experience.
#3 Twisted Guest Posting
Looking to get a Jump Start on your Traffic and build like the “Heavy Hitters” in the industry?
No doubt you do!
Stop writing content for sites with winnie engagement and followships …
.. follow the money … or the traffic as it applies here.
Contribute high quality articles to sites with large followings and engaged readers (>5,000 subscribers/followers).
A submitted article that’s published by the editor could mean a viral amount of backlinking growth to your site!
#4 Active Link Dumps
Don’t be deceived by the word “Dump” in #4.
It’s actually a good thing. What we’re talking about here is identifying Blogs that aren’t so large yet (traffic, age, page rank, etc)…
but that have great readership and response (active readers who post comments, like on facebook and re-tweet blog posts).
You’ll want to get engaged and contribute to these sites as well!
This is low hanging fruit that demands reaping … with great rewards from Google and other search engines.
#5 The Media-Oriented Links
Have you noticed the massive amount of attention given to Current Issues by the media?
I mean … turn on your TV set. Stories come and go as fast as the wind … but what is to be learned here is the attention given by the masses and how captivated people are.
Tap into “current issues” and write blog posts around these topics. Results may give you the added jolt your site is craving.
#6 Spy Competitors And Link-Back
This strategy needs no explanation.
Simply put … find out what your competitors are doing to WIN.
Run a search on Google using your Niche’s Primary Target Keyword. Select the Top 3 Sites that pop up … and do some research on these.
Go to BacklinkWatch.com…. and find out exactly what hubs they’re linking back from.
Mirror what your competitors are doing… and bring it to them by contributing high quality, original content that your readers will love.
#7 Viral Links Approach
List based articles are relevant and can be applied. This strategy focuses on building quality articles that are list based.
Personally I love these articles. This one you’re reading is an example of one.
They are relevant and can be applied with ease.
Most people struggle online. Quite frankly, this is a HUGE OPPORTUNITY to write awesome articles that get tons of traffic.
Focus on being the Teacher and showing others how to do SEO, Blog, Link Build, Design, etc.
I take John’s recommendations to heart … and credit is due to him for these awesome pointers and tips.
… I hope this article helps you in your online pursuits, as much as it has helped me.
Now go and make 2013 your most profitable year online yet!
