    What is good backlinks today, ive tried to build forum backlinks but it seems hard, like you have to participate in every forum you want your url in.

    So what is it that works today?

    Comments are working fine for me, and a few social bookmarks for deeplinks. Social Bookmarks haven't got much power, but for deeplinks they are good. Forum backlinks are much work, but they are very good, especially when they are topical to your site.

    I have two answers:

    1) The Holy Trinity: edu, wiki and gov.

    2) Search your best competitors in your niche, find their backlinks (with scrapebox, for example) and make them for your site.

    First rule - links should look natural - as if like someone else shared them, not you. This link building strategy works best. Masked as user links. It looks much cooler and better for Google. Keep in mind that authority sites and platforms will not allow someone to spam links like that ... That's why it has modern name - Link earning, not link building.

    And there are also many other changes affecting the right link earning - content industry. Try be viral. Invest time and effort in an article, once it come viral, it will take good care of your link building - from shares in social site to sharing your link in forums and blog posts. That's it. Otherwise, there are technical specifications for this, but that's another topic. Topics like - from anchor text link to correct distributed link (mix) of different sites.

    Everyone would line such a link. Well, the site and its owner should do something really fantastic. :)

    I won't return a link from Mashable, wow, wait, this is also CNN. :)

    For recent Google update in 2014 year, diversification of backlink kinds is important.

    - social signals
    - social bookmarking
    - web 2.0
    - press releases
    - document sharing
    - article directories
    - and more

    If you have more budget, you can consider...
    - private blog network (PBN)
    - purchasing high quality link

    Forums are a long term strategy, meaning you have to start building your presence there long before you actually want the backlink. So just start joining relevant forums and post a few there every week not worrying about backlinks. Do this in your spare time and over the months you will have established yourself very well. Make sure these forums are do follow. There is a good chance you will also be able to generate solid traffic from those who click on your signature link.

    As for what else you can do, have you considered guest blogging? And, I'm not talking about spinning out articles for publication on other sites, but really writing a good article and submitting it to a high quality, high page rank blog that is similar to yours. If what you have written is in depth and worth reading, then you will deserve the backlink. And, that one really good backlink will be worth ten times what a forum backlink is worth.

    bookmarking, directory submission, article submission, yahoo answers are good back-linking SEO strategy but now a days social media sites are best plat-forum to get natural visitors.

    Quality guest posts are great. And when I say quality, I mean quality! Look up the running man method/skyscraper method on Google.
    Basically you have to find websites relevant to yours that went down.
    Check what other sites linked to them.
    And then contact the other sites telling them that they're linking to a dead site, and maybe they could link to yours.
    Good luck!

    PBNs are absolutely 100% your best bet these days. PM if you want more information.

    I agree with MK, a PBN, but with mostly the holy trinity as mentioned before of .edu, .wiki, and .gov links

    Forum links are effective. If you spend some times, they will allow you to use your link. Blog comment is effective to get traffic on your site. .edu and .gov links are effective to gain higher PR.
