Hey guys, I will be honest with everyone here, I'm no expert on backlinks, infact I don't even know how it works or how to get lots of them. Here's my situation, I'm a guitar player with mediocre web designing skills and zero knowledge on SEO. I run a guitar site called http://www.Guitargreed.com. It's recently started and I'm looking to promote it, from what I understand backlinks are the best way to go. So, here's my question how exactly do you get lots and lots of backlinks? Here's my strategy now, I pretty much leave comments on various guitar blogs I come across and have my site address as signatures in various forums I am active in. That's about it, sadly that is all the SEO that I am doing for GuitarGreed. With this approach I have managed to get my word across a few sites, but still I am not very sure about the quality of these backlinks, plus when I go to Alexa, all I can see is 1 backlink, which is a pretty depressing site after putting in so much time posting and commenting. I want this to change, do you guys have any suggestions? Please keep in mind that I simply do this for fun and I cannot afford to pay for backlinks. Infact, I hardly do this for money, the only thing that keeps me motivated to write and promote this site is the freebies that I receive from various guitar manufacturers for reviews. However I really want this site to pick up and be more visible across my niche. What is the best way to get lots of backlinks and make this possible without investing any money? I am willing to put in the time, just need to make sure that I am going in the right direction. Thanks in advance for all your help.
