Hi all. I'm new, but I love this forum, so I thought I'd post my method for getting quality backlinks from blogs related to my niche. 1. I find busy forums related to my niche -- then I post a thread asking everyone to post their blog so we can all check it out. These are the best blogs to get backlinks from because they're actually relevant to your niche. 2. I search blogsearch.google.com for more blogs related to my niche. 3. I take the blogs I have so far and enter the address into this free link checker: (Edit: I can't post the link because I'm new, but just search Google for "seo pro link checker" and it's the first result.) I find that it returns far more links than Google or Yahoo. More importantly, it also shows the page rank of each site and will list sites according to PR. 4. Now I have very, very long lists of all the blogs that are linking to the blogs I already have. I choose from these lists only blogs with page rank of 2 or more. 5. At this point, after all that work, I will have hundreds of blogs related to my niche with PR of 2 or more. 6. Now I go to each blog and find the email address of the blog owner -- this is normally found on one of the side bars or in the "about me" section. 7. I send out a mass email to the blog owners saying I've been following their blog for a few weeks and I was wondering if they would be interested in doing a review of my ebook for free and then posting in on their blog. 9 out of 10 will say yes, because your ebook is something they are interested in (since they blog about it) and 8 out of 10 follow through. When they post a review, they always put a link to your site so others can go and purchase the ebook. 8. Finally, I sit back and drool over the hundreds of PR 2-7 backlinks I'm getting. Remember, you're not only getting excellent backlinks, you're also making tons of sales. The blog readers reading the review will want to go purchase your ebook because someone they trust and like is recommending it to them. If this is all completely obvious, sorry! It's just the method I use and I wanted to share in case it can help someone.
