Easy ways to get free backlinks

Backlinks are incoming links to a blog or a website or a web page. In the search engine optimization (SEO) world, the number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that blog or website. According to Google, back links are votes given by other sites to you. Google assign pageranks to blogs or websites according to their backlinks. If a blog have alot of quality backlinks then google will assign them a good pagerank. Pageranks are very important especially if you want to earn money through your blog or website.
To get free backlinks i want to show you my personal experience so far as blogging is all about personal experience.
  • Quality Content
    If you are having quality content then everyone who like what you blog, will link back to you. Now the Question How to write Quality posts for your blog please read my post about How to write a better post.
  • Main Source "Comments"
    If you really want to get alot of high quality backlinks, I would encourage you to leave a comment on each and every blog that you read but in your comments remember to leave your blog's link. And the most important thing Do not spam
    ( spam means do not leave comments like " WOW" "Thanks" "Nice Post" etc ok because bloggers will not publish that)
    This is the most powerful source and google loves these kind of links. It would help you alot. I also call it Blog Walking
  • Social Bookmarking
  • Social bookmarks are the sites that allow you to share sites you like with others or in other words you can maintain your bookmarks and favorites in a way that others can see it. There is a large number of social bookmarking sites on the web. Visit them and get free and easy back-link to your sites from them.
    Don't keep on submitting your own site(s) to them. This will look spammy and some of the social bookmarks might ban you for doing this. Submit other good sites, blogs and pages too.
    Tip:Write a good description and a catchy title to get large amount of traffic as well as large number of backlink from them. This way more people will rate your site and you wil get a link-back from their profiles too.
  • Link Directories
    This is the easiest way to get some free backlinks. All you have to do is find some quality free directories, choose a related category for your site and submit your site to that proper related category. As choosing a proper category will increase chances of your link being accepted, it will also insure you get back-link from related keywords which is one of the best SEO practices.

    TIP 1: While submitting your sites to link directories, don't forget to write a proper description of your site with some of your keywords in it.

    TIP 2: Don't leave the keywords field empty as it is not mandatory.

    TIP 3: Keep on changing the text in title tag while submitting to directories so that Google don't take your site for spam.

  • Submit Articles to Directories
    I personally didn't try this step but i have heard alot from many bloggers about it that it worked for them.
    Try submitting your articles to some popular articles directories ( like ezinearticles.com).
    How it works: When you submit articles to these directories, it contain links to your blog at the end of the article that is posted by you. This way you get free backlinks from these directories.
These were some basic and easy ways to have free backlinks. If you want to add something in my list then please suggest in your comments thanks.

How to Become a Popular blogger?

You might know about some very well known and popular bloggers like

From Problogger.net

from entrepreneurs-journey.com

and many more.
They are really doing great job.
Are they not human beings like us ????.
Well ! they are. They have eyes , noses, ears, hands , brain etc but we also have those things that God gifted us all.
Now the question that arise in our minds is why?? Why can't we be like them? Why can't we be popular??
Are we not like them ??? Is there anything that we do not have and they have??
We are the same then, it is also true that we can also be successful. Yes we can be popular, we can have lots of fans and etc etc. Actually we ( the new bloggers especially ) have lost trust in ourselves, we just try to copy what others are saying and doing in the blogosphere.

I want to tell all my friends that trust in yourselves and God. I assure you that success and popularity will kiss your feet.

Do not be the copy of anyone!!! Try to be unique from others
Please suggest your thoughts in your comments

How to blog in your own unique style

Actually the ideas that the blogger shares with his/her readers is called blogging. All the success of the blog lies in these ideas.
Unfortunately most of the new bloggers just talk about those which all the blogger are talking about. They do not write ideas/opinions of their own. Why would readers come to those blogs who have the content that other popular blogs already have.
Visitors/readers need something unique and interesting. Here are some tips to make your blog posts unique from others.

  1. With a Pen and notebook Record your Ideas
    The most classic and a nice way to blog is to keep a pen and a notebook with yourself and write your thoughts and the ideas that strike you. Most of the ideas will be forgotten if you do not record them with yourself. And its very difficult to remember them back.
    Now when you sit to blog, it will be very easy for you to write post because you already got some ideas on your notebook.
  2. Do not Copy other Blogs
    Read other popular blogs to keep yourself upto date of what is happening in the blogosphere. Its also good to gain knowledge from them but do not try to copy their style and most important thing do not try to copy their posts ( unfortunately most of the most blogger do this mistake ). Listen people have already read these popular blogs, they do not want to read it on another blog.Visitors want something new and original. So please do not be their copy. Try to be Unique. However its ok to refer your readers to some interesting posts from other bloggers.

    wrote a great point about copying someone else blog. "If you just want to repost what someone has posted then it’s better not to. Just remember people have already read about that!".

  3. Write your own opinions
    People usually read blogs because of author's personal opinions. Do not afraid to write your own opinions

    Ades also wrote about writing your opinions
    "Without the personal opinions, your blog will be just another news-reporting blog.
    Don’t be afraid of what people might think of your opinion, what is important is - what you think! And don’t forget that it’s your blog (not someone else’s) and in your own blog you are entitled to voice out your own opinions."
You might now be able to write your own posts in your own unique style.
Leave your comments please and if you want to add any thing in this list you can suggest in your comments.

  6. Write with passion
  7. Include Bullet point lists
  8. Edit your post
  9. Make your posts easy to scan
  10. Be consistent with your style
  11. Litter the post with keywords
1. Make your opinion known
People like blogs, they like blogs because they are written by people and not corporations. People want to know what people think, crazy as it sounds they want to know what you think. Tell them exactly what you think using the least amount of words possible.

2. Link like crazy.
Support your post with links to other web pages that are contextual to your post.

3. Write Less
Give the maximum amount of information with the least amount of words. Time is finite and people are infinitely busy. Blast your knowledge into the reader at the speed of sound.

4. 250 is enough
A long post is easier to forget and harder to get into. A short post is the opposite.

5. Make Headlines snappy
Contain your whole argument in your headline. Check out National newspapers to see how they do it.

6. Include bullet point lists
We all love lists, it structures the info in an easily digestible format.

7. Make your posts easy to scan
Every few paragraphs insert a sub heading. Make sentences and headlines short and to the point.

8. Be consistent with your style
People like to know what to expect, once you have settled on a style for your audience stick to it.

9. Litter the post with Keywords.
Think about what keywords people would use to search for your post and include them in the body text and headers. make sure the keyword placement is natural and does not seem out of place.

10. Edit your post
Good writing is in the editing. Before you hit the submit button, re-read your post and cut out the stuff that you don’t need.

Thats all
