Quick Tip: How To Build Quality Links To Your Blog Quickly

Would you like to build quality links quickly?

Without doubt, quality content and links are still the ultimate factors that determine your search engine rankings, especially with Google.

If you want to grow a profitable blog, you MUST make a challenge to spoon-feed your target audience with valuable content continually.

But too often, bloggers forget to syndicate their blog posts across the web.

They fail to understand that the efficacy of any piece of content rests on effective marketing.

Don’t ever neglect to promote your blog posts. Sure, updating your blog with fresh content on a regular basis is a good step – but it goes beyond that.

In this article, I want to show you the quickest way to generate 5 – 100 natural links from every piece of content you produce.

Should you bother with link building?

Google has ruled the search engine world, and I don’t see the mantle changing hands anytime soon. Bing and Yahoo are two contenders, but they’re still far off to beating Google – at least, SEO experts have said that on several speaking events.

When the Penguin was first released on April 24, 2012, a lot of sites were affected. Because of blackhat seo practices, link schemes, duplicate content and several other factors.

As a result of that, a great number of bloggers and website owners totally neglected link building. This is primarily because Google went after links which were not natural and relevant.

Does it then mean that link building has become a thing of the past?

Absolutely not – on the contrary, whitehat (acceptable) SEO is still effective. And if you optimize your pages properly, the links you need can flow in naturally.

That’s what search engine optimization is meant for – to make content marketing worthwhile, not robotic. In a nut shell, don’t ditch link building for anything. It’s still needed when you want to improve your rankings and grow your business.

However, the manner by which you can build quality links have changed. It changed a long time ago, but was obvious when the Penguin was rolled out.

So, what’s the quickest way to build backlinks right now?

“Social Media + Guest Blogging”    blogworld expo

Don’t be confused, this is a new term that I want to use to explain the concept of link building. This might just be your saving grace – so read on.

We’re already used to guest blogging and it’s become the burst everywhere you go.

In fact, most people now call guest blogging a cliché, saying it’s lost its meaning.

But I don’t think so. As a veteran guest blogger myself, I know that contributing to other people’s blog still can produce result, if you do it the right way.

But now we’re looking for real links, which can be helpful. Links that would make your target audience understand you better.

How do you get such off-page links?

Research A-list blogs with social media influence

Oftentimes, when you see a popular blog it means that the blog is active on social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more importantly, Google+. The blog also has thousands of readers who are responsive email subscribers and fans.

For the purpose of generating external links that matter – rather than submitting your guest posts on blogs that have no social influence, you should reconsider the time you spend crafting that epic shit.

No, this isn’t a matter of how much traffic you can drive, or client you can generate, but how many people can “cite” your guest post without a push.

Most of the guest posts which I submitted at socialmediatoday.com, freelanceswitch.com, zacjohnson.com and several others sent me 10s of good links from bloggers who were looking for fresh content.

Providing that your guest post is informative & helpful, people can easily share it with friends, tweet and recommend your URL to their target audience. This strategy can earn you 20, 50 or even 100 authority and natural backlinks just from a single guest article.

Study the blog you intend to write a guest post on. How many RSS readers does it have? What about the popular posts, how many tweets and facebook likes did it receive?

The time whereby you guest post just for the sake of doing it is long gone. Yes, you could guest post for the purpose of generating traffic but the results aren’t forthcoming as it used to.

Guest post wisely – get good links

It can be difficult to get your guest post published at Brian Clark’s copyblogger.com. But if you ever succeed, you’d generate over 20 quality links from a single article.

And as you gain these links from a single guest article, potential clients would reach you easily and your blog can skyrocket virtually overnight. If you TRULY want quality links from top blogs, I can help you with my link building service.

    I agree. I use Google’s own assets to link back to AiEVIEW.COM / An info evo viewing – the sites Google own (Youtube, Blogger.com and others etc) seem to help AiEVIEW rank well. But I’m a firm believer of many options and copy super bloggers exactly (link-by-exact-links) to be sure.

  5. @Michael I think guest posting is the best way to get quality backlinks. Also if you write pillar articles on your blog, backlinks will automatically come.

    I usually concentrate more on writing quality contents on my blog.

    Great post…. I read it all and all of you should do it without skip reading because you have something good and new to learn in case you create develop a blog.

    To be honest I didn’t knew such tip and piece of information and I work online for few weeks.

    Michael or John I have a quick question if you have some time to reply:

    When I build an article is there a maximum / certain number of links I should insert?
    Let’s say I build a 2,000 words page – How many links may contain that are connected to my website?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. It depends on what the article is about. If you’ve covered the topic a bit in the past, you could link to that page. But 2000 words page is a huge one. There is no rule here – but don’t stuff links. 5 – 10 links would be fine. Just make sure that those links are relevant.

      1. I. C. Daniel says:

        Thanks man!
        You right is big, I will make articles smaller.

        Once again I appreciate you take time answer me.
        Best regards from Romania!

    Great tips Mr Michael, I’ve set a goal of writing more content in my blog before applying to write as a guest in some websites that are popular in my domain, so I’m still working on it, and I’m kind of enthusiastic to see the results that I’ll get once I write in these blogs!

    Thank you for your precious advises!

    I think Guest Posts for Link Building is the right strategy with the rise of blogging more and more SEO Link building campaigns have come to rely on guest posting on other sites as a means of generating the kind of trusted editorial links which the search engines love.

  10. Magnus says:

    Great post but don´t forget that link building is just one of many SEO strategies. Good old on-page optimization still is one of the most important things to do. If you have a WordPress blog there are many plugins that do it for you.

  11. khadeer says:

    Very nice tips you have given here, Thanks for sharing such good information.

  12. Thangaraju says:

    Excellent tips for newbie bloggers, who want to improve their blog popularity as well as ranking too.

  13. PCdigger says:

    I’m starting a new blog and this article has given me some directions. Thanks Michael for keeping this plain and simple.

  14. geekmom says:

    I agree. Before I lost a few years of posts by moving my server one weekend and accidentally dropping the MacBook Pro that held the back to the ground and destroying my hard drive, I had wahm’s guest posting about their adventures in online networking marketing to my geekmom marketing site. The posts gave me a nice boost on google back then because they did backlink to show off their articles. This was back in the popular phpwebsite days. Unfortunately, one mistake on my part cost me a lot of data. Always make a backup of your backup and store it somewhere special.

  15. Whitney says:

    Great tips..I feel the best way, even SEO’s now agree, is to promote your stuff on social media and let the links come naturally. “Link earning” as they call it. I personally don’t really bother with link building anymore though, I just focus on driving traffic.

  16. Good posting Michael, now i found 3 sources as reading above article to put my posting and get quality links.

  17. Hi Mickael,
    You are absolutely right in that guest blogging links will decrease more in value of Google, after panda and penguin so I several blogs that were built solely on guest blogging that fell many places in serp. Unfortunately, I think that Twitter and Facebook will also fall in value, while LinkedIn will increase.

  18. hi, a great post and all that, thanks, but i am confused even more after reading it, ref guest posts. Matt cutts specifically says about guest posts “if you are guest blogging just for links, then don’t do it.” so why would someone guest blog apart from to get a link, or they pay you to blog, with a link to them or another site one of their clients paid them to link to, violating Google’s TOS, so whats the answer?

  19. Striking the right balance between guest blogging, social media marketing, article marketing is not easy. We would all love to have it all but how much time are you prepared to invest is the 64 million dollar question.
    Thanks for sharing your insights.

  20. Wadud says:

    Good insight for noobs like myself. I have come to realize how important link building is, but it tends to get a bit overwhelming in the beginning. I do enjoy blogging though, so I guess I will have to keep at it and learn as much as I can.

    Thanks for the insight.

  21. this was a good post, I am going to start guest posting, thank you for these useful tips, I can use this and take this into my business right away

  22. zubin kutar says:

    Guest posting is a good option for building link , I suspect this will soon be abused by link builders. Michael what are your thoughts on it ?

    1. Already, some people are abusing guest blogging. But it’s still very effective to those who understands how it works.

  23. Sanat says:

    Nice post. IMO active participation in quality forums can also be used for link building.

  24. Lola Stoney says:

    Hi Michael,
    Good tips here.
    Even Google is building a powerful social network that feeds the search engine mechanism – through Google plus. Adding guest posting to that can lead to a big boon in the long run.
    Thanks and Cheers.
