In many posts, I have mentioned that backlinks always add advantage to your site. It is very important thing for SEO of any site. Most of the people always think how to generate or get backlinks?

I am writing this post to explain various ways which will help you generate quality backlinks to your site.

What does quality backlink means?

The reputation of the website which is pointing to your website decides the quality of the backlinks. Search engines looks at backlinks and accordingly it evaluates popularity of the website and gives it a rank. So let’s start and see how we can generate backlinks?

Press Releases

In order to get high quality backlinks you have to get a press release written and get it distributed to thousands of different news and press sites. If your press release is well written and is of super quality then it may be picked up by websites like New York Times and USA Today, this will give you super quality backlink for free.


Submitting press release to each individual site would be a hectic task so try to use a distribution service. PRWeb is a similar service which provides you track record and is recommended by SEO experts.


Write testimonials for the products and services you have used. It’s a good opportunity that must be grabbed, it will give a big advantage to you if your testimonial is selected and displayed in the website then you will get a backlink.


Yes, testimonials always contains link of the person who writes it to make the testimonial genuine. Always try to write testimonials, reviews for all the things that you have used online and submit it to that website. If your testimonial is genuine and honest then it will be selected for sure.

Social Bookmarks

Backlinks from high PageRank sites is pleasurable but it gives you more pleasure when it is FREE. Social Bookmarking allows us to save our favorite bookmarks online to read later.


It also gives us a free backlink. You can use for social bookmarking because it will bookmark your address to 25 different social bookmarking sites for free.

RSS Directories

You would have heard of RSS Directories for sure. RSS Directories help people to explore different blogs and website on a particular topic. Submitting your website to RSS Directory will generate backlink to you.


You can use Fast RSS Submitter to submit your website to RSS directories automatically. Fast RSS Submitter will submit your RSS feeds to over 100 RSS directories automatically, saving you a lot of time.

Article Submissions

This is again an important method for link building. The myth with article submission is that it does not work. It does work and works pretty well but you need to do article submissions in large amount.

Article submission is the best way to rank any primary keyword in the 1st position. Submitting few articles doesn’t work, do lots of submission and see your results. Keep submitting till you hit the number 1 position.  Submitting articles is also a hectic task so you can use Article Marketing Robot. This software works fantastic.

Link Bait

What is link bait? It is content that is so useful, super quality and powerful. People are compelled to share it naturally.

link bait

If you publish effective content that people enjoy while reading then they will definitely share it, like it and tweet it. You will get ranked for lot of keywords. Concentrate on link bait and do it consistently, if you are able to do that then your readers and visitors will do a big ratio of your link building process.


You can always use these methods depending upon your time and budget (if you want to use pro-software). Your creativity matters a lot and your dedication towards your blog and website will lead you to generate high quality backlinks in great volume.

So, what strategy do you use to build links for your site? 

Comments & Responses

  1. I tried opening social monkee but received this message ‘Free Signups Disabled For Your Country

    Important! Due to resource abuse, we have changed our Terms & Conditions and do not accept free signups from your country anymore. Thanks for your understanding.’

    Is there any other FREE site like this? is a paid s/w could you plz suggest some FREE option. Article Marketing Robot is too a paid one :(. It would have been g8 if you wud have given free options…


    • social monkey is a great site to get backlinks to bad they changed into a pay system :(

      thanks for the tips

      • I was just reading through this article ( thanks for taking the time to write it) and saw that social monkee was now a paid service too, $7 lifetime payment. Is it worth it? Has any one tried it? Its quite disapointing but I guess you have to get on board with these things as soon as they start before they start charging people. Anyway, thansk for the post, its given me some things to think about.

  2. great post.

    got a questions though.
    Can you recommend a tool or site to check how many back links to my site?

  6. I think the info you share here is valuable. I like Press Releases. Although it’s hard to write a good press release, it’s worth my time. Thanks for your content.

  7. I submitted a press release to announce our affiliate program about a week ago. Today I was told that it’s been picked up by Yahoo news, which is great and exciting, but I haven’t noticed any new backlinks to the site. Is it because it’s too soon?

  8. Blog comments perhaps is the best way especially if it is similar content!

  31. Social Monkee is not a tool one should use for link building. There is a very high chance that google will deindex the site or penalize it. I have checked many reviews of the same and found that reviews are so pathetic and it looks like this tool should be completely avoided.

  44. How many backlinks do I need for my site?
    My site is not doing well in google search.

  45. HI
    Is It necessary to have Back links to a Site.
    What is the role of Back Links

    • Yes Backlinks are good for your websites, having quality backlinks to your site is good because it gets some priority from search engines. Backlinks are “links” on other websites, blogs or forums which point to your website.

  46. So what are no-follow links?

  47. Hi Antisocial,

    “Nofollow” provides a way for webmasters to tell search engines “Don’t follow links on this page” or “Don’t follow this specific link. For more info refer

  48. Thanks Sanjeev for this good post.

  49. Gracias por el articulo.

  50. Great tips to get backlinks,one thing that i must add is the blog commenting,because it will not only bring quality backlinks but also traffic and alternatively keep blog safe from Google Panda update penalty.

  51. Thank you. I really appreciate for your posting, very useful.

  52. nice post… thanks … the points: press release and link bait is new ideas for me…. i think it would be very useful..

  53. wow! thanks alot for the information bro, nice blog

  54. This site is of great help

  55. this article helped me much about backlinks, I applied some of the suggestions and my pageviews increased from 10 single viewers to 100 viewer in a month, thanks a lot.

  56. Hi Sanjeev Shrivastava, Awesome post bro!! You have really listed some great ways to build quality links. But i read in some blogs that using tools like Fast RSS Submitter may affect our blogs, Is it Right ??

  57. I am so thankful for google brought me here,.

    anyways thank you for this idea.

    keep it up!

  58. Great article. Just one question. I have also read that press releases can be counter productive since many sites will just copy paste your text. Is this true?

    Thanks! :-)

  59. I find that using CommentLuv to comment on high PR blogs is a strategy that works well for me for many reasons – the high PR blogs in my industry are usually valuable and worth reading (yes, it’s not just about links!) and it gives us an opportunity to make new contacts at the same time. Any kind of automated tool misses the point on both of these counts.

  60. Thank you very much for the information!!

    Awesome article.

  61. You can easily improve your search engine listings by using the noodp and noydir tags as well.

    In addition to Sanjeev’s tips:

    - Do not ever use backlink programs.
    - Do not add your site to all the directories you find on Google.
    - Google dominates the web (Over 80%). Google, yahoo and bing are your only friends. Do not waste time with others.
    - Do not try to get 100s of backlinks in a day.
    - Never pay for backlinks
    - Always have unique content (and let people copy/paste)
    - Clean coded website is a must (not talking about h1 tags or keywords)
    - Allow visitors to post comment (Do not use nofollow, use dofollow)
    - Find cheap advertising sources to drive visitors to your site regularly.
    - Find friends that have access to .edu and .gov websites to get backlinks

    There are, of course, much more for advanced users and webmasters, but I just wanted to underline some for starters.

  62. is there any software available to built backlinks easily/thanks advance

  63. Great post.Thanks for giving usefully information.

  64. Getting backlinks is a frustrating job. I decided to check out socialmonkee but disappointed to see that it is not free anymore

  65. Thanks for your wonderful tricks and i think all the points you mentioned are correct and very helpful for users.

  66. Thank you for this helpful information.

  67. RSS Directories are most important

  68. sir in backlink which type of link are used? dofollow or nofollow?? reply me…

    • Well dofollow links pass link juice which is better for your websites ranking. nofollow links are not crawled by search engines but it doesn’t mean that you should not create nofollow links.

  69. Hi Sanjeev,

    What’s your take on the ratio between your anchor text types like generic, brand and keyword targeting, is that at all important? Also, the ratio between do follow and nofollow once, are those taken into consideration by Google?

  70. It quite good to see that your blog is progressing.
    Quality Backlinks is very important for the site as it will give more traffic and PR also.
