I've told you before on ezpctips that good quality backlinks is the essence of SEO (Seach Engine Optimation). Good quality backlinks is very useful for your blog to be able to reach the first page (or even the 1st) of certain search engine result page or commonly as known as SERP. But the problem frequently found is that we are unable to get the real good quality baclinks. And that perhaps become the answer for "why does my blog have low traffic?" ; "why my blog cannot be indexed by Search Engine?" or " why my PR is zero?"or blah-blah-blah...
Refer to those question hanging around. This time mytheory will reveal how we can get good quality backlinks. So keep reading to this article.
::. What backlinks exactly are?
Well,before i tell you the steps to get good quality backlinks,it's better if i explain what backlinks are. Backlinks are links on other blog/website pointing at your blog/website. There are two types of Backlinks:
- One-way-backlinks;means links on other website pointing at your blog,but there is no link on your blog pointing at that website(one-sided).
- Two-way-backlinks;means links on other website/blogs pointing at your blog,but there is link on your blog pointing at that website(reciprocal).
And maybe you wonder what is the best of both? is it one-way-backlinks or even two-way-backlinks?. And if you ask me that question, i will answer: One-way-backlink is the best,although it's difficult to get.
::. How to get Good backlinks ?
So,if we have already know what is the definition of backlinks itself. Now,we go to the main chapter of this topic: How to Get Good backlinks:
- Make real good content
This is the hardest thing on blogging. I also realized that we cannot make good content at least one a day. And frankly to say, until this time i write this article, i still looking for the solution for this problem(make real good content). But there is a good side for you. Good content is not limited. Just simple choose what you are expert at,and then make story or article like this on your blog. If you write it carefully,you can achieve this step. I remind you,that make a good content is not just copy pasting from other blog,but you have to make original content as best as you could make.
- Doing Trackback
If you can't do the step number one well, you can breath easily now. Trackback is way easier than make real good content at least one a day. Just simply make a posting that have a link(s) to other blog page, which have huge of visitors, i emphasize it: HUGE visitors. So that search engine can't spider your link,and if the blog your link pointing at turn on their trackback,there you got your quality backlink without even asking for them. The other benefit of doing trackback to huge visitor blog is that perhaps you can get visitor from them. =)
- Comment on other blog
Many of you maybe have know this before, by commenting on other blog we can get quality backlink. How come? well,it's simple. When you leave comment on someone's blog, put your name on the Name box (your blogger name) and type your blog URL on the URL box, publish it and you just stick your backlink on that page.
But you should notice that you can't easily write comment on any blog you like. Just put your comment on blog which have the same topic or niche with you blog. Why? because if you comment to blog that have different topic with yours frequently,your rank on search engine will be hurt.Believe me guys,i've felt it before :(
- Link Exchange
This phrase is not strange for you. Link exchange is rather easy and quick to do. Just tell the blog owner that we want to link exchange with them,but before we should have put their links on our blog,and they may put our link on their blog then.
- Participate in Forums
Find forums related to your blog topic on internet. Join on that forum,and every time you release a post on that forum,stick your signature below your posting (your signature also contain your blog URL). So,you also get the quality backlinks from them.
I think those 5 steps above is the main thing you should consider when you try to get good quality backlinks. This article is a part of SEO series i provide for you who want to increase blog traffic. The other part of SEO series will be added soon. Thanks.
