How to Get Backlinks

One of the most important parts of search engine optimization is getting back links to your website. A back link is simply a link from another website to your website. The more backlinks you have, the more chance you have of beating your competitors and getting more traffic to your website.

Here are 10 ideas on how to get backlinks:

1. Write and submit articles to article directories. Include a resource box with a link pointing back to your website. To increase the number of back links used a mass article submission service to reach hundreds of directories for one article.

2. Make comments in online discussion forums. Create an author resource box that includes a link back to your website containing your target keywords.

3. Post comments in other peoples' blogs. Only post in blogs where you are allowed to include your website URL. Make sure that the blogs you are commenting on will post a live link (without the nofollow attribute)

4. Run ads in ezines that are archived online. You can use an ad service such as My Wizard Ads to place one ad in multiple ezines at a time.

5. Exchange links with other webmasters. Join a reciprocal linking or a three way linking service and reach hundreds of link trade partners at a time.

6. Submit your website to directories. There are literally thousands of directories you can submit your website to on the internet.

7. Write a press release and submit it online including a link to your website. Any time you have something new to announce about your company issue a press release.

8. Add your testimonial to product launches. If you are an established business people will be happy to include your testimonial on their new product.

9. Create a "link to me" page on your homepage. If people like your site they will refer you naturally by adding your link to theirs

10. Write short articles on the same theme of your website and send them to ezine publishers. This is also a great way to get free advertising without actually purchasing it.

These are just 10 ways you can get backlinks to your website. There are plenty of other ways to get backlinks. It just takes a bit of thinking outside the box!

Well done!
