    If you read the article on Search Marketing Standard called How To Get Links Without Asking (here) it talks about creating quality content as the best way of getting people to link to your site without you even asking them. Although I agree that writing quality content is an important part of Internet marketing and even getting free links, I would disagree that this is the best way to get them, for example creating a cool widget that is hosted on your site, will generally work better at getting free links... this post is to start a collection of sorts of some of the best ways that webmasters use to create free links back to their site. Please share your ideas and implementations with examples if possible...

    Alex,

    You have a good point here. Even if someone were to write the best content in the world all the time, it does not necessarily mean the audience for that content will start linking to it like crazy. Webmasters really have to get the ball rolling themselves. While getting natural backlinks is great it must really be a proactive initiative.

    Here is a good post on generating natural backlinks,

    Best,

    Better technique is to write super controversial content and make people link to it

    Boy does link bait make things go viral
