    Great post. I have been looking for ways to generate back links to my website but haven’t succeeded much. I guess creating back links take a lot of time and I can’t give much time to my blog other than writing articles because of my job and busy schedule :( At last the best thing I can do is to comment on blogs. I am a regular reader of many blogs but never commented on any before. I guess this is the best way for me to create back links to my website. :)

    “forum participating ” I agree that forum participating and the quality content is an important part of SEO. Moreover, the points you’ve explained are something I’ve never heard of, particularly the interview. I learned something new from this post.

    Really Awesome Article Nikhil Ganotra!

    I really enjoyed reading your article, and the best part is the one in which you said that ‘quality links cannot be achieved in a single day’. I fully agree with. It takes a lot of time and dedication to build authority and quality links as well as reputation.

    Looking forward to read more articles from you!

    In my point of view “Blog Commenting” is easiest & essential one for bloggers. Because it helps to build the communication between the bloggers (especially new bloggers) and also helps to build the backlinks..

      Hello Rajkumar,
      Yeah blog commenting is a good way to build backlinks but you should make sure to deal with only quality blog commenting. Commenting just “Thanks for sharing” and “nice post” will not work.

      Thanks for stopping by :)

    The best method which i feel send a lots of traffic is host some really amazing tools for bloggers or themes on your blog. That will attract a lots of unique and returning visitors all the time for your blog.

      Hello Rajesh,

      Yeah I truly agree with you that amazing tools and template lead a positive impact on visitors. But it’s not a way to build backlinks.

      Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week ahead.

    Hello Nikhil,

    I think getting backlinks from relevant sites increases the authority of your website and gets special consideration from the major search engines. But at the same time getting too many links from either forums or just commenting sends a bad signal to Google. The tactics which we use on daily basis is not recommended by Google and they have clearly mentioned on their webmasters guidelines :)

    • says

      Hello Morli,
      Yeah you are very right that getting links from spammy websites is clearly a bad practice. If you are dealing with valuable comments then you are lying with a good company. Blog commenting is an art and every blogger must know it.

      I am glad that you liked my article. Please don’t forget to share it.

      Keep visiting UBT, Ammar has so many new things to deliver you. Thanks for stopping by.

    Thank you, these were very helpful tips :)

    The one I have already implemented before even reading the post finished was to find out what Gravatar is and how to sign up. It is such a useful tool, I really hope it helps me with my blog!

    I like what you said that if it is relevant, don’t be afraid to say a negative comment but I would also just like to comment and say that there is no place for nastiness and negativity online towards other people for no reason. Many think that because they are behind a screen they are allowed to be mean people and this simply isn’t true. Everyone would be a lot happier if people were nicer to each other. Just a thought :)

      Hello Parvati,

      Yeah a gravatar plays a very important role in proving your readers that you’re not fake.

      We shouldn’t be reluctant while posting a negative comment. Posting “thanks” and “informative post” will not work. We should always deliver a relevant comment. This also helps in building quality links. And yeah I agree with you that we shouldn’t be mean.
      I appreciate your views and comments on my post. I hope to see you again on ABT.

    Thanks, the more I read about back-linking the more it makes me think some guest blogging is the way to go. I appreciate the other tips too.
    Thanks for the help

      Hello Eithne,
      Yeah guest blogging is a good practice to gain exposure and publicity but please make sure to deal in quality content. According to Matt Cutts guest blogging is becoming spammy practice day by day. But if you are dealing with quality content then guest blogging is a must to build high quality backlinks. BTW I have written an article regarding guest blogging and it might help you out.
      I appreciate your views and comments. Thanks for stopping by. :)

    2) Secondly there is a problem of forum posting that it is very taught to manage signature approval forum . I am talking about health site , I didn’t manage more that 10 signature approval forum site till now .

    (thanks for your article )

    Last time i watched a video about backlinks in which a person was telling the audience that building backlinks is dead and you have to earn backlinks instead of building it..for-example when you publish a quality content and someone link back to you that is the best way to go for links these days,,,other methods are a waste of time,,,need some help is building backlinks still works…

    • says

      Hello Jawad,
      This is not true that we can’t build backlinks. Yeah everybody knows that content is the king and is the best of the best way to build quality backlinks but I disagree with you that other tips are waste of time. Writing an ebook and creating a long tutorial guide really works as I have implemented them. The main part is to attract good traffic. That’s it. And the tips I provided really worked for me. I appreciate your views and comments.

      Have a great day Jawad.

    I wouldn’t call these “rarely known”, I think most are covered by anyone who is in SEO. There are good points in here, though. The best bet these days is to immerse yourself into Google+, sign yourself up to Google authorship, and be active on their social media format. It’s a really good online profile builder and will earn you new contacts and extra backlinks.

  12. says

    Great tips.This will certainly help to draw traffic to the websites.Most people don’t like to write a negative comments as they think the owners will not confirm the comment and that’s not wrong but the number isn’t that high now days.

    • says

      Hello James,
      Often people are reluctant to post negative comments but that will not work. One should post true comment if it is relevant.

      Thanks for stopping by.
