Backlinks are needed to improve the overall website SEO. But, it’s not as simple to get quality backlinks.
In this post, I have discussed easy ways to get quality backlinks to your blog for free. Even if you’re a new blogger, these beginner tips are easy to implement. By the end of this post, you will have a better understanding of how backlinks work.
WHAT IS A BACKLINK?
Let me give you a quick definition.
A backlink is a link given to a website from another website. These are also called ‘incoming links’. Backlink is a link that point to your website from another website. These links give signals to Google and other search engines about the quality of your web page.
PUBLISH AWESOME CONTENT THAT NATURALLY GETS BACKLINKS
It’s no secret that writing great content will naturally create backlink. As a blogger, you should always aim to produce valuable articles that people would love to read and share.
When your content is a valuable source for the right audience, you will receive backlinks. When I find highly valuable content with examples, I definitely try to give an external link to their website. Because I know that this information will further help my readers understand what I’m trying to say.
Along with super valuable blog posts, outstanding freebies and products can also generate backlinks to your website. If you create awesome freebies like Ebooks, Ecourse, printables, planners, videos then these will possibly get more eyeballs.
The free resource will further get backlink for your blog.
Many bloggers mention free resources of other bloggers in their blog posts.
When you create freebies for your audience, your chances of getting backlinks increases.
ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN COMMUNITIES
There are many social communities where you can discuss and participate.
Platforms like Quora, Twitter, LinkedIn are authentic places to get high-quality backlinks. Be willing to help and share advice in the communities. Ask questions, and give replies. Try to write meaningful answers for the community readers. When necessary, you can also link your own blog post for further reading.
I personally use Quora to engage with a new audience and a free backlink doesn’t hurt, right?
Sometimes, people also click on those links and read further on my blog.
