3 Backlinking Methods For High Quality Links


high quality backlinksIn very simple terms Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a numbers game. More back links you have more traffic you will get, both referral traffic and search engine traffic. But not all links are created equal. One quality link from an authority source can be more powerful than 100 sub standard links. But getting quality editorial links is not an easy task and in this article I will show you 3 unique ways to get some quality links.

1. Help a Reporter

If not the best then definitely one of the good ways to get high quality back links from leading publications. This is a great way to get back links from industry leading blogs like ReadWriteWeb, Inc, Mashable, InformationWeek etc. A link from a quality resource like that can bring lots of traffic and boost your search engine rankings as well.

The best thing is there are sites dedicated to connect reporters with information sources. My favorite site is Help a Reporter because you can subscribe to categories and also because you get two email everyday summarizing the queries. Most of the time I delete these mails because I can’t contribute to the queries, but if an opportunity comes where I can contribute I do so quickly.

Most bloggers and webmasters ignore this thinking they have nothing to contribute, but they are hugely mistaken. As mentioned in the site, everybody’s an expert on something. Try your luck with them, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

2. Give Testimonials

Another great way to get quality back links and a good constant source of traffic as well. If you use a product and love it then send write a testimonial mentioning how awesome there product is. There is a good chance you will be features in their customer testimonial page or in success stories page. Most product websites acquire high page rank and customer testimonial page is one of the frequently visited pages as well. So naturally you get traffic and a high quality link.

Although it’s good to wax lyrical about the service or the software it’s important to mention how it helped you as well. Customer looking for testimonials and reviews want to know it solves the problem. Website owners are aware of this and they usually include testimonials that mention the problem solving part.

3. Sponsor Competitions

The quality of the link varies according to the contest hosting blog, but it is a good way to get traffic and build your brand. There are hundreds of contests held on websites and obviously you can’t sponsor them all. You need to pick them carefully depending on your objective.

If you’re looking to build links then it’s good to join contests where participants need to create a blog post linking to contest sponsors. If 10 people participated that means you get 10 back links. Again the quality of the back links may vary, so you have to consider your return of investment.

If you want to get notified about the new competitions happening around the web you simple need to create a Google alert for it. You can specify keywords to find the blog contests targeted for your niche.

Mentioned above are some unique ways to build quality links. I have had great success with them and there’s no reason why you can’t have the same success. Any questions? The comments section awaits.

    • Ram Karan

      I never tried these backlink methods in my professional career because i am newbie in this field therefore these kinds of things are technical for me. However after read your post and understand these technical points i am quite sure to get benefits from these very important backlinking methods.

    • Michaela

      It’s not easy to have great backlincks but I’m sure these methods are good !!

    • Matt

      I have never heard of Help a Reporter until now, but it sounds like a great site. I will look into it.
      But just on the subject of getting noticed by big publications: Another way to do this is to seek out journalists on Twitter. There are many of them on the site. Connect with them and build a rapport. Eventually one or more of them may ask you for input, since they know your area of expertise. Or you can offer it to them. They’ll be much more receptive to that if they feel they know you.

    • Sai Kumar

      Hi Nishadha, Really an awesome methods to build quality backlinks. I think Testimonials and Sponsor Competitions are the best method among those three. Thanks a lot for sharing this great methods.

    • Mike Reeson

      Help a Reporter

    • AjayUdayagiri

      I’d like to appreciate for the awesome post.
      The way of helping the reporter may pays with high quality link backs, i consider. Moreover, the way of sponsoring to the giveaways provides us high PR backlinks but, one must be ready to afford. 

      • Nishadha

        You don’t have to break the bank to sponsor a contest. Some contest you can sponsor for as low as 10$. The returns wont be like sponsoring a huge contest, but if you’re are careful with the ones you choose you can make good on this one.

    • Writer

      Awesome tips to build quality backlinks.
      Among them helping a reporter may pay us with high quality backlinks and also the sponsoring competitions like giveaways.  

    • Anand Singh

      A great appreciation for the post mate. Quit unique tips you have mentioned. I have used many products and now wish to send them few testimonials.

      • Nishadha

        Yep, writing testimonials are a great way to build some quality links from high PR pages. Also if you wrote the testimonials for a site that is related to your niche you have a good chance of getting traffic and branding too.

    • Solar Sunrise (Talhaa)

      Now-days I think its the major factor about backlink after penguine updat and relevancy is the most important. Irrelevancy is not support that you true person.

    • Sudipto

    • Anirban

      Hey Nishadha,
                                   I agree with you that link building is easy but quality link building is not so easy. Your all three points are good for collecting quality links and I think your first point “Help a Reporter” is best for collecting high quality back links. Thanks for share!

    • Kulwinder Singh @TheTechShell

      Wow great article and unique ways to get high quality backilinks thanks for this article bro, as you mentioned above these are unique ways and make high quality backinks, but it takes a little hard work and effort.

      • Nishadha

        These are somewhat difficult than most common methods and might not bring the results always. But getting 1 quality link after replying to 10 HARO queries is still worth it in my mind. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

        • Sandip Bhagat

          It was a good post. And i like the points you mentioned here. Your creative ideas… I think helping a reporter will bring a backlink in a good way.
