    When ever we talk about SEO, we divide it into on site and off site SEO. Off site SEO mainly contains backlinks and social signals. Specially, to boost your ranking in SERP's you need to get quality links from other authority sites. We all know the importance of search engine traffic and that getting high quality backlinks to your blog is one of the best ways to improve your blogs rankings and get better search engine traffic and results, this post will be listing 101 ways by which you can get quality backlinks to your blog.

    Some of the link building methods, which you should ignore:

    Before, I start with my 101 list, here are some of the link building methods that you should ignore:

    • Avoid site wide link from footer (WordPress themes or plugins)
    • Avoid buying exact anchor text link (Keep a proportion of 40%-20%?20%-10%-10% for anchor text variation)
    • Avoid buying bulk links from sites like Fiverr
    • Don?t opt for link networks (Build my rank was one of such private link network, which got penalized)
    • Avoid BlogRoll links
    • Article directory links are not that effective anymore
    So, these are something which you should keep in mind when starting with quality backlink building campaign. Out of all the existing method, guest posting is the best way to get quality link and more over, it will help you to drive traffic to your web page.

    You can't possibly follow all the tips in the copied article. I usually avoid reading such long lists of things to do except when I want to pick up one or two tips to apply to my sites.

    I just love it when people say don't put links in your footer.
    My main site is on page 1 of G in an ultra competitive niche and it has had a site footer with links to my other articles/blog posts for all of that time.

    Don't believe anything you read on this or any other forum unless you test it yourself first. That is the only way you will know for sure if something works for you.
