How to Build High-Quality Backlinks

If you are into SEO, you would have heard the term ‘backlinks.’ A lot of bloggers or web content writers find it challenging to build high-quality backlinks. And some resort to spammy activities to get, at least, something linking back to their web pages. This type of practices isn’t to be encouraged.

Whether your website is new or old, I have highlighted 7 different methods you can use to generate high-quality backlinks without breaking search engine rules. These methods are vital if you are new to link building techniques.

Before delving into these methods, let’s understand what backlinks are and the factors that make a high-quality link.

What are backlinks?

Also, search bots use backlinks to identify valued contents. So, if your web page is identified as such, the bots place your website at the top of search results whenever search criteria match your keywords.

As shown in the image below, this is how the backlinks work. Basically, you create links from different platforms to those pages you want to promote.

Factors to consider when building backlinks

High-quality backlinks should point to your website from a relevant website. These are the 4 of the factors to think about when you start to build backlinks.

1. Domain authority

It isn’t a must to post on high authority websites, but it’s a big advantage. Posting on such website and linking back to yours can boost your ranking much faster than a website without a domain authority. So, this aspect should be highly considered.

2. Dofollow links

However, if a nofollow is specified, then the bots will ignore all the links that have the nofollow tag. For this, you need to be sure that the website you are posting your contents on doesn’t have a nofollow setup.

3. Anchor text

4. Relevance

Example: if you write about dental care, the content you are linking from should be discussing topics that are related to teeth treatment.

Methods of building quality backlinks

Now to the real points. How do you build quality backlinks? In this next phase, I will highlight the 7 different methods you can use to drive traffic to your web page and make it relevant.

Method 1: Create a profile on the social platform

Being active on social media doesn’t mean to register for all there are. To be successfully making use of social platforms figure out which ones work better for your niche.

Method 2: Create and promote your contents

And don’t just write contents for the sake of putting something on your website; make the contents relevant to what you do. In other words, write quality and valuable contents.

After creating the content, promote it. Share it on all of your social profile; do paid ads as necessary to reach a larger audience. When people find your content online, they will link to it or connect with you.

Method 3: Be a contributor or guest writer

There are some high authority websites like Forbes and Entrepreneur that accepts contributors. You don’t necessarily have to be a contributor to top platforms. You could start from small ones, and grow gradually into the system.

Method 4: Answer forum questions

Apart from answering questions on these forums, you could share your blog posts and link back to your website.
