    How do you get links to your blog? I'm looking for a easy way to get some quality/whitehat backlinks to my blog. I have daily fresh content. Will submitting it to my Digg/Tumblr account work? Any other suggestions?

    You can mass submit to RSS feeds using bulkping (google it).

    Also build some relationships with fellow bloggers in the same category/area and leave comments where you link back to your blog.

    Maildigger,

    TheQuiet has a good suggestion about building relationships with other bloggers. Try and land a guest posting gig somewhere and then you can link back to your own blog in your author profile. Another more passive way to build links is to link to other bloggers in your same niche and use them as a reference (when appropriate) for whatever you are blogging about. Sometimes people see this and like it and then they are more likely to link back to your blog.

    You could also create backlinks on web 2.0 properties like wordpress.com or a wiki site. And lastly you could try the old fashioned way of just reaching out to people whether through social media or more traditional means and asking them if they want to link to you and you can provide a link to them. Make sure you are only doing this with websites that are in your same niche though or it may look suspicious. Google hates link schemes which a lot of these tactics fall under.

    Here are some more tips on building backlinks,

    Hope that helps,

    I have a blog in fitness and bodybuilding niche. Not a grand link-building strategy per-se, but whenever I release a post, I repost to twitter and facebook page as well as my personal facebook page. Also, when I do a video blogpost (youtube video) I always put a link back to the post in the description.

    Finally, and this is a big one, I try to reference previous posts in my articles and link back to those posts as well.

    It's simple, but I always see better traffic and mare comments when I promote my posts using social media.
