How To Generate Hundreds Of Links Whenever You Want

Are you ready to build hundreds of backlinks?

This post is going to guide you. There are lessons to be learnt and steps to be taken.

Don’t assume that you’ve mastered everything about link building, because in the real sense of it, you’re just beginning. Yes baby!

For most bloggers, the only thing stopping them from making money online is the fact, that their blog pages don’t have enough external links.

No referral traffic, little or no organic traffic, coupled with their hard-to-spell domain names.

After optimizing your blog pages and content with the right keywords, the NEXT step is to get good links to it.

And contrary to opinions you’ve held dear to your heart, you don’t have to use tools or trickery to acquire links. Don’t get me wrong, some software tools can seem natural, but the question is, how do I recognize them? To be on a safer side, keep off.

What is a good link?

In 2010, when I started building niche sites, I thought I needed thousands of links to rank highly on search engines. But I was 100% wrong. When I started studying helpful materials and listening to industry experts, I realized that one good link can weigh more than 10 mediocre links.

So, how do you get a good links?

The truth is, you can’t control who links to your website. But you can control where you drop your links.

A good link appears natural, not squeezed or padded into the content. It’s like you never really wanted to add the link, but somehow, it just had to fall in. This means that using link exchange sites can be detrimental to your site’s health.

A few months ago, a handful of bloggers contacted me. Guess what? They wanted me to link back to them, and they’d reciprocate the link love. Aha, you got that feeling, right?

In a nut shell, this is link exchange at its very best. Google Panda updates are being rolled out regularly. You can’t afford to stake your blog’s future on the platter of exchange sites.

A good link is that which comes from an active site – a site that is updated regularly and is free from Google’s ban tag. You’ve to know that some popular sites are already in Google’s ban list. Sooner or later, you’ll hear the ugly news.

Now that we’re done with building good links to your blog, let me show you the one proven way to automate your link building without using software. Are you ready?

Write cornerstone content        build backlinks

Blogging is basically powered by content. But realize that all content are not created equal. We’ve various forms of content.

We’ve the articles, videos, podcasts, webinars, white papers and so on.

If you want your blog to become a link-magnet, start by adding various forms of content on a regular basis.

That is, don’t solely write articles. Start creating videos and podcasts.

This way, people who don’t like reading can listen or watch. It’s basically the same thing.

What I usually do is engage my readers with a powerful headline. Then, build interest with a video and use podcast to engage readers.

You know, when someone is listening to a lovely music, they’d grin from chin to chin. I’m sure you’ve done that countless times?

They want to get the words, the lines, the vigor and the message. You can’t always write cornerstone content, but when you do, promote it actively on Facebook, Twitter, and watch natural links flow like a broken jalopy. But don’t worry, you can handle it. I trust you. Lol!

Magnet quality links with cornerstone content

It takes time to write quality content. Because the research, the brainstorming, the editing, proofreading and writing can drain you.

And this is why getting quality links to your blog pages is very difficult. Of course, if you want 20 links, you can get it today, but I can imagine the strength of the links.

I know a blogger who has built over 2000 links, but yet, his ranking is nowhere near the first page in Google search. Why? Because the links aren’t good. When I asked questions, I realized once again that 20 quality links are better than 2000 generic links.

Why do people naturally link to cornerstone content?

The same reason why people buy what they can get for free – convenience.

Since it takes eons of time to research, write, edit, proofread and promote cornerstone content, most bloggers are too lazy to pull a sit and do it. They can talk about link building, but few people have the guts to start right now.

Consequently, when other people stumble on an epic content, they’d immediately share it with their social media fans. They’d cite it on their blog posts and send it to their email subscribers.

Cornerstone content also can go viral, thereby sending hundreds if not thousands of natural links to your blog pages.

Are you chasing links?

Today, a lot of bloggers are just looking for loopholes to build thousands of links on autopilot. I can envisage a new Google update, which could breed more havoc for website owners. Don’t go chasing the next “link building wave.”

The best time to MIND YOUR BUSINESS and allow other people to build links for you is NOW. When will you sit down and improve your blog’s content? Your readers are waiting to help you build good links. Start today?

    Great post Michael, using epic content as link bait is the best way of building links, and the links coming from such contents are always one way quality link but creating epic shit is not that easy but it is achievable.
    I also like guest posting as a link building method.
    -JA

  4. That’s true that every blogger who is running a site/blog is after link. But building link in a natural way is another thing and getting link by going against the algo of Google is another thing.

    Most of the people are going against the Google Algo these days which may cause a big lose in terms of visitors and ranking to their blog/site.

    I believe in building back links by writing quality content for others blog.

    1. I agree with your friend. Using quality content to build links is the best way to get it right. Thanks for reading.

  5. Really Interesting and Informative article John and Michael,

    Quality Link Building or good link building is the best effective way to get on with Google and other search engines. its not always easy to do things right but its always rewarding when things are done the right way.

    Thanks for the lesson,

  6. I couldn’t agree more with this article. Creating quality links should be the focus of every marketer. I spent some time with a client a couple of days back with over 12,000 inbound links who was being beaten out by a site with less than 50… no surprises which site had the better quality links is there?

    1. You can say that again – quality links are the best spices, not quantity.

  7. mikeo says:

    Again a nice read, Michael.
    one good link can weigh more than 10 mediocre links.” Yes, that’s really it and I found guest posts are the safest way to build good links.

    Great post. I actually had the hardest time building “cornerstone” content. But what I have now realized is that its nothing more than content that is actually useful to people and that actually provides value.

    As far as link building, I still think its a headache. But like I always say, there are not a lot of things that are worth doing that is actually easy.

    1. Anything worthwhile can be difficult, but it’s achievable. Link building can be a headache when you’re chasing links. But you’ve learned today that cornerstone content (helpful and quality) is what really counts.

  13. What frustrates me is the amount of people flogging cheap SEO services who claim to gain number one rankings in one month, or the automated link building software that many “so-called” gurus are pushing. I feel sorry for those people who have spent their hard earned dollars on such software or services as its almost guaranteed to get you flagged in Google.

    High quality content or even unique info graphics attracts links from people who are active within your industry. Not only that, but you have to be active on the authority websites within your niche as this gives you a better chance of that particular webmaster using references to your content as you have provided their own community/forum/readers with high quality content.

    I know it sounds insane to most, but you need to be-friend your competitors, not work against them, as these people can help you leverage your own exposure which is then converted into revenue down the line.

    1. So true Aden. I like the line, “befriend your competitors, not work against them.” Thanks a bunch!

  14. This seems very tough for me, I run real estate websites that generate leads for my real estate brokerages. We have blogs within them… What I’m wondering is how to I do that if my blogs are local?

    Do I create local content and hope that someone picks up the post? Or do I not worry about being local?

  15. Dean Saliba says:

    Since Google conducted the updates earlier this year I have struggled to find other ways of creating back links because the old methods have stopped working.

    Maybe you could do a follow up article with some new ways? 😛

  16. Brandson Koh says:

    Agree with you on the quality content part. But for a brand new site I personally think you still can buy some links to promote it. Otherwise why so many people place their ad on Adword?

  17. Getting Traffic to your site is easy if you know how. Unique content is still king. But I agree there has to be a balance between SEO and providing value to your readers. You’re so right readers not robots buy your products. Great Article. thanks for sharing.
