    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if any of you had any top tips on link building, where you get yours? etc etc

    I know Google tells everyone not to link build, but as its one of the biggest ranking factors, it can't be ignored...can it?

    Cheers

    James

    Guest blogging on RELEVANT blogs and sites can be a good start. Don't post to article sites or sites outside your niche, they'll do more harm than good.

    Hi Karma

    Why would posting to article sites do more harm than good? Would that depend on the particular site?

    Ah, I get what you mean now, I was thinking or article sites more along the lines of something like CRN http://www.channelweb.co.uk/ rather than something like ezine.

    Posting blogs is only of value if the link is a dofollow link and a lot of blogs are set to no-follow. You need to check the type of link before you waste your time and post to a no-follow site

    Create high quality of backlinks from web 2.0 websites or high authority websites like facebook, stumbleupon,reddit, pinterest, etc.. are the best of them to get quality backlinks.

    If you do not do Linkbuidling, you will get nothing. Backlinks is very important in SEO, it is the power of your website. Do not spam too much, you will get penalty from GOOGLE

    When you post comments and questions or you guest blog, make sure the sites where you're doing that are from your niche or related to it. I understand that the purpose of back linking is getting more traffic and by doing this you'll definitely get more traffic. If you're knowledgeable, people will follow your link for sure.

    I think that you can also ask for blog exchanges, get your link mentioned on social media posts, like twitter or facebook / linkedin.

    As many sites mention you, as much your website get domain authority. So, link building is important. But black hat practice is never recommended. If you get link in organic way, then what is the problem?

    THeLegalSTop - Social media is of no use at all. ALL links on Twitter, FB, Instagra, Pinterets etc etc are NOFOLLOW links they will have no impact on SEO

    Hey guys.

    I'm new here on recommendation of one of the admins and glad to have found you all.

    So here's my stance on link building.

    Yes it's important. It always has been and most likely always will be but link building has changed a lot over the last few years.

    I'll start with social media links, as far as pure link building SEO goes they have little effect now, however it does help a little in respect of your social media presence goes in googles eyes.

    As far as regular link building goes I follow these basic rules for both myself and my clients.

    - Link from a relevant website within the same niche.
    - Make the link content rich, so write something useful and build in your BL.
    - build both dofollow and nofollow backlinks. (Why? Because if Google sees 200 dofollow links and zero nofollow back links it will very quickly see that the links are simply for bot purposes only)
    - link from high authority websites

    The most simplest SEO rule out there is:

    Build your site for the users with search engines in mind not the other way round. This rule applies all the way from construction and design all the way through to your off page SEO and link building.

    Happy to help if anyone needs advice

    Cheers

    Chris

    Link building is a best off page SEO technique. There are so many link building techniques but i mostly used it forum posting, business directories, social media marketing, blog commenting etc.

    I would advise adding a blog to your website if you have not done already this can be a great way to show your expertise. Press Releases tend to be very good as a form of link building as does Local Citations.

    For good link building, you need to build good relationships. There are plenty of opportunities to build new contacts. You should start with niche-related communities: forums, blogs or social groups.
