Generating Good Quality Backlinks For Better SEO Rankings

LinkToday's Ask A Social Media Advisor question came from Pam Graham, and it relates to SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and how to generate good quality backlinks to her custom wordpress site.

Here are a few simple ways you can start to generate good quality backlinks to your site while only using white hat SEO techniques.  These are safe strategies you can implement today and keep you out of trouble with the various search engines.

The first thing I'd suggest is to make sure you have your bios up to date everywhere. Each one should have your photo, name, description, and also a link to your website whenever they allow it.

While some services like Facebook might add a tag, not all services do that and you can really gain some good links from that alone.  Go back through all those various social networks you signed up for but never even completed your profile and make sure to get your links in to your website and everything else completed.

In the video I mention a few good places to get some nice backlinks to your site.  Here are a few of those that take no time to set up:

In addition to services like the ones listed above, some blogs allow comments to be followed by search engines, so leaving comments that are valuable to the conversation and are not spammy can be a good source of links as well.

The final way to build powerful backlinks are by requesting to write a guest post on someone else's site. I've been able to build some really good links by doing this for my site over the past few years.  Not only do I write guest posts for others, I also LOVE having them from time to time on my site.  In fact, I've had several guest bloggers here on this site over the past several years.  If you would like to contribute, contact me about the possibility of being a guest blogger.

*Bonus Tip For Generating Backlinks: One simple way to generate good quality backlinks is by creating content on your site that others would want to link to.  If you are a real estate agent and you are sharing valuable information about the current state of the market, there's a good possibility a news source like the local newspaper or station might link to your blog post when covering the story on their site.  Or, a business might link to your post if you share a nice review of their product or service.

If you begin to implement some of these different strategies above into your daily routine, it won't be long till you are seeing the SEO benefits of backlinks into your site.
