Where to get free Backlinks?

    Hello DP lovers,
    Many of us are involved in Link building, either for their own website or other. Also many of us has got their secret Link building list. So can you share one or many places where you get free backlinks? It would be helpful for many of us I guess. I generally get free backlinks from Blog comments but I never spam the blog, I make a relevant comment and thus get approved. Now its your turn to share your secret if you got any... ;)

    Ya those are few of the oldest options. I would like to add some new in this discussion. We can also use:
    1. PDF sharing sites
    2. Doc sharing sites
    3. Slide sharing sites
    4. Music sharing sites(I read about it somewhere, you will have to get a personal music of few seconds or minutes)
    5. Link exchange.
    6. Forum Signature
    etc.

    I would like to invite other members for some new ideas that they are using, which can be helpful for everyone here.

    User generated content on content sharing sites and social media are two ways that I use to get back links for free.

    You are absolutely right but in SEO I always look to trends and the trend nowadays is that people are much more involved in social media, Social plugins are commonly being used by people.

    Ya trends show that people are involved in social media but when it comes to search engine ranking then social media is not the only way for link building. Social media is one of the best and easy way to get traffic but leaving it what other options can be explored?

    You can get free backlinks by creating them manually, that is, do it yourself and not outsource to another individual or company. You can create backlinks through form/blog commenting, social media sites (when you share your content) and guest posting.

    Hope that helps. Have a good day!

    You can start building a few basic backlinks from social media sites like Facebook, through a business page. Google+ through a page and Twitter. These are the foundations. With regards to building backlinks, its not about quantity. Its about quality. Don't just spam 100 blogs/forum with the same copied text. This is completely pointless and will get you nowhere. You need to provide quality, unique content with any backlink. Focus on forums and blogs that are similar or have the same target audience and try help users out with real answers and content. By doing this, those backlinks should also generate traffic to your website which is what Google is looking for.
    Posting links with no content is exactly what Google are trying to avoid and can even peanalise your site if you do it too often.
    Try opening a blog for your website too. This is the easiest way to generate backlinks but must contain quality content. Hopefully if you have a good enough blog people should backlink to you, which is exactly what you want and should also transfer PR to your site.

    If you are serious about SEO just concentrait on quality. This is what every search engine is screaming out to everyone. Just make good quality content and we will rank you. Don't worry about SEO!
    This is why I feel in some ways "SEO" is dead. Its not about tricking search engines anymore. Its about working with them to provide users with what they are looking for.

    I do not think SEO is dead. I think, Google is saying use SEO but give users quality content. If you create a page all for SEO alone,we won't take you too seriously.

    I also personally believe that SEO is not dead because. If we dont use SEO methods while developing a website then it will be take long time to appear in Search Engine Results.... Also if we don no linkbuilding the PR of the website will hardly increase.
