where do you get your backlinks?

    We all know how important relevant backlinks are, but my question is where do you guys get them?


    I'm not interested in blackhat sources, and of course great content usually gets links of its own accord.

    but other than natural selection...

    do you pay?
    add to directories?
    nurture your yahoo/dmoz entries?

    1. submit to DMOZ, it will help you gain few natural links and PR
    2. Directory submissions. You must pay to be included in some of the well known directoris.
    3. Link exchanges. Contact the websites that are related to the content of your site for a link exchange.
    4. Articles: write articles and include your link with it. There are so many article submission services out there.

    Yea what maldives said :D

    Directories are my main source, I have two sites in the DMOZ, have yet to explore article submissions. I do some link exchange, only if relevant or in my best interest.

    I let users grab html to display a little box for inputting names for translation. They can put this html on their site or blog and... surprise surprise, it has two nice little links embedded in it with some of my favorite keyphrases. Kills two birds with one stone by bringing me visitors and getting me backlinks with the anchor text I want at the same time. And I don't have to beg other webmasters to put it on their site. They just do it anyway.

    Its a small-scale version of what Statcounter is doing. How do you think they got a PR of 10?

    Just Google the following search terms and contact each of the top 20 sites:

    "Add a link" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Add a site" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Add URL" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Add an URL" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Submit a link" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Submit a site" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Submit URL" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Submit an URL" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Suggest a link" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Suggest a site" + "your keywords(s)"
    "Suggest URL" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Suggest an URL" + "your keyword(s)"
    "Your Region" + "Add url"
    "your keywords" + "directory"
    "your keywords" + "directories"
    keyword reciprocal
    keyword exchange
    keyword add site
    keyword resources
    keyword links
    "your industry" +add url, directories, etc...
    "related sites" + your keyword
    "related urls" + your keyword

    Hope this helps :D

    I found that competitive sites only want to do link exchanges if you have high (5+) PR. I don't know why they care but they do. So get some pr5 or pr6 sites linking to your new site, so yours will be pr4,5,6 next update.

    Then contact your competition if they want to exchange links, they will check your site, check your pagerank and will agree. Repeat this a couple of times (50+) and you have some on topic backlinks.

    Only disadvantage is that you have a (or two) page that links directly to your competition.

    but the best way is to let 'anonymous' users link to you. Create a search box, a top 10 box, a nice animated gif anyones wants to have or something like that that others can put on their personal (geocities like) homepage. If you offer crazy stuff that are copy&paste ready: people will DO copy and paste it!


    And most important, listen to shoemoney: don't do anything like auto-* that will backfire someday.

    yeah, gotta love the emails that read "first request" followed by the email that says "final warning", and they both came while I was out of the office for a couple hours.

    I cant believe people actually use this stuff.

    Articles seem to be big right now, I worried that they are the next to be devalued.

    In addition to their suggestions create blogs with good content and link it to your site. Get backlinks from directories with good pr and keep posting on active forums like Digital Point, Webmaster-talk and others. DONT DO SPAM!

    Visit good blogs (check their technorati ranking) and post constructive comments, with your URL in the signature.

    Nice practices. I feel you should also submit to some of the paid directories as well. There are very very good paid directories for you to choose from.

    Do you think the most famous websites were build bying and exchanging links?

    NO.

    Exchanging/buying links will help you at the moment, as far as Google still doesn't penalise directories or so on. You don't understand Google algo.

    Google algo is based on quality of a website. That quality makes you get thousands of quality links. Good content, and quality will make you be high in SERPS. The best websites are build on quality, the success now and in the future will be quality. All you spammers only make Google hate SEO, and place bad content into SERPs, but doing only buying/exchange you are from now doomed.

    This has turned up some really useful info, cheers for the tips. A few folks mentioned writing articles. Could you recommend some online re-usable article sites that let you include a link at the end?

    Here's what I do...in no particular order:

    - Article Submissions
    - Directory Submissions
    - Reciprocal Linking
    - Blog Commenting (non-spammy)
    - Paid Links (text-link-ads.com, LinkSmile.com, TextLinkBrokers.com, etc..)
    - Search G/Y!/MSN for paid link partners
    - Search DMOZ for paid link partners
    - Content swapping deals
    - Blog Posting deals

    The list could go further...

    Stephen, don't really have a need for translation, but from someone who has lived, to some extent, and appreciates the Japanese culture, I have looked at your site and appreciate your work. Your code for back links is ingenious.
