Top 5 tips for getting backlinks to your websites

I did a R&D for some days that how the things will work to get the back links to some of my project. I got answers to some of my questions , I mean got success for some tricks and some were a failure.

So just a quick note on which things worked for me, might work for you also.

Top 5 things to get back links to your website:
1)Write a kind letter to webmaster asking for a link:
Some bloggers don’t want to use this trick as they think that asking for a link is bad. Let me tell you that if you are a newbie then asking for a link is really a good thing to promote your blog.
So create a list of bloggers in your niche, write a good mail to webmasters asking a reciprocal link and link their site before sending the mail! In 90% of the cases you will get the link!

2)Comments comments comments:
Ya comment on as many blogs as you can. Comment honestly how you feel about the blog, so there are chances of link back. Writing a comment on well established blogs so that chances of indexing of such a pages as well as your comment is very high. And will some times count a back link for some of the search engines. May be you can have some free traffic also.

3)Write a review article:
You can write a article about a product or offer from any affiliate and post it on your blog. Don’t wait for any webmaster or product owner to contact you to write the review, just do it and send a mail to that webmaster informing the good work done. Chances are high that he will appreciate the work and you could end up with some extra free traffic as well as the back link.

4)Submit your webpage to directories:
You can inclcude your webpages to as many directories as you can. This might be free or paid inclusion depending on your budget and ideas.
Also don’t forget to add your webpages to your email signature.

The last and most important thing to getting back links is
5)Participate in the blogger or webmaster projects like Problogger blog project

By means of participating in the projects like this where you can have number of back links free for just a single post.
I generally do participate in such web projects wherever I come across.

Let me mention you that this post is also a part of Problogger Group writing project!!

    About #2: I do not know what weightage Google gives to links it picks up from comments. Hope it does not classify them as spam.

    Good tips, btw.

    Very nice! I am the writer of “Top 5 things to do in Istanbul” This was my first group activity, but i liked it very much.

    Have you ever been to Istanbul which links east to west, and west to east like a weblink. Istanbul played such a critical role in the world politics and culture throughout the history.

    Now i have a dream i would like to share with you and Darren Rowse. All the Probloggers should meet at Istanbul and join the 29th edition of the Eurasia Marathon on Sunday 28th of October, 2007.

    Let’s meet where the continents meet : As the Istanbul Eurasia Marathon starts from the Anatolian side while taking the runners to the most beautiful spots of town, signing its name under a touristic attraction as well. The Bosphorus is one of the most beautiful spots on the world and as you run through it, history of the centuries run with you on the streets.

    I joined the 28th Intercontinental Istanbul EurAsia Marathon on 5th of November, 2006 together with my friends, Joe and Suat San. We enjoyed the wonderful Bosphorus, and beautiful streets of Istanbul on a cold but sunny Sunday morning. The slogan for last year’s marathon was “let’s run for a non-smoking world”.

    this was my blog post for last year’s marathon:

    I would be happy to invite you to the 29th Intercontinental Istanbul Eurasia Marathon, the only marathon to run between two continents – Europe and Asia. Istanbul is one of the oldest settlements on the world. What about participating in the 29th EurAsia Marathon in 2007 which takes place in the most beautiful places of a wonderful city that has been the capital of three empires ?

    You may find details about the marathon here:

    Please let me know if you are interested.

    Have a nice day!

    While I respect your post, there is not a chance that you will get links 90% of the time you ask for them from other bloggers. This technique has lost most of its value due to spammers.

  5. Liara Covert says:

    This thread offers interesting points. I agree with Joshua that convincing sites to add your link is not as easy as people may believe. To build your reputation, leave pertinent comments on sites and do other effective PR. Have pateince. The traffic you deserve will come to you. Have faith too.

  6. Vijay says:

    ya I agree with joshua and liara,
    Its now bit difficult to get back links by request, Due to spamming. But still i think its a good and honest idea to build links.
    Just write a polite request for the link explaining your business and how it will be mutually beneficial to both.

  7. Daniel says:

    I couldn’t understand some parts of this article, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.

  8. Wahoo says:

    Thank you for sharing!

  9. I am following all 3 procedures.

  10. Liz says:

    Hmm, I’m following your advice and adding a comment so as to make a link. By the way, the chance of getting a link by asking for it is very slim these days. When I started a website several years ago people were very willing to exchange links but not now. So what has changed to make folks unwilling to link back?

    Nice Tips…
    Thnx For Sharing….

  12. Thomas says:

    It is very difficult to get backlinks from others though this helps both sides. It seems people are afraid they may lose their traffic, if they link to someone else. If anyone is interested, welcome at my site.

  13. I wonder if it would be a better strategy to focus first on smaller sites to do some link exchange? At least the chances would be a lot better.
