The Process Of Building Backlinks

We all know that this process of getting more valuable backlinks is not an easy one and it hasn’t some 1-2-3 defined steps to be followed.

Anyway there are some factors that matters a lot before starting the building links process:

– build an user friendly website with a very eye-catching design;
– create unique and quality content which will impress the visitors;
– share your thoughts and experience for free to other webmasters;

When starting the process of building backlinks, you should focus on :

1. Navigate related content blogs and post valuable comments offering thus a helpful point of view.

2. Submit your website or blog to directories or blog directories.

3. Write some quality content articles related to your website and submit them to articles directories websites.

4. A very important step is to build reciprocal links with other related websites. Let other people know that you are open for link exchanges by showing a message on your homepage or on a specific part of your website. (eg : Partners, Links, etc)

5. Join Community Boards (Social Networking and forums) and share your ideas and experience with others. Use your website’s URL as your signature and participate to the hottest subjects discussed there. Get yourself involved and don’t start posting replies without content just to get backlinks because your posts could be deleted by a moderator.

6. Another very important thing to be done is to write a controversial or a very interesting post or article that catches a large audience that will surely want to blog about that and will generate automatic free backlinks. Think about how your content could be a controversial one poured with some humour or maybe sarcasm. This tip is called Link Bait.

7. Give your visitors the opportunity to share or vote your website pages to Social Bookmarking websites like :,, etc…

We all have to know that start building links for Google is a different process than building for yahoo and msn.

Google gives a high importance on the number of the backlinks and especially to the links coming from pages with high page ranks.

Yahoo and msn firstly analize website’s structure including navigation and content and even with a low number of IBLs… a site have big chances to high rankings.

I repeat the most important 6 steps that matters in link building process :

1. Watch Out for bad neighborhood websites!
2. Check reciprocal links from time tot time. (check file source for nofollow attribute)
3. Think of what will visitors say before including a link on a page.
4. Get backlinks only from related content websites.
5. Start submiting to free directories in the first 3-4 months after launching your website. (remember that a big number of links coming only from directories will practically define your website as a directory related content one)
6. Use the 3 Way Linking Technique.

g. Include a “Link to this page” in the page

2. Link Bait – How To Create Backlinks Naturally:

Increasing the number of Backlinks to a site is a very important factor in developing your website. The most important part of the process is what factors influence most the natural increase of IBLs.

I think a website must have a content compared to a magnet on it’s niche. To become a magnet and to attract a lot of people to write about your website and eventually include links on their websites or blogs, discuss it on forumus, posting it on social bookmarking websites like (, digg, stumbleupon), the content of the site must be poured with some controversy, humoristic or very useful resources topics.

Here’s my list of ideas on how to naturally increase the number of IBLs : (if you have some please share them here)

– Create unique and quality content;
– Read news daily and try to focus on “Breaking News”… it would be great if you could write some articles related to them;
– Let yourself influenced by stand-up comedy guys when writing controversy topics;
– Think about what will make other people laugh and start writing down the ideas;
– Think about how you could be of a great help to other people FOR FREE;

3. The Importance Of Incoming Links:

The number of incoming links is an important factor for your website’s pagerank, but you should also avoid non-permanent backlinks. Google Pagerank algorithm was developed in the late 1990’s and it is based on an original theory and formula.
In time all webmasters came-up with the conclusion : in order to get a better ranking the number of incoming links really are power.
