    You probably know about dafont.com - where you can create a nice web 2.0 profile.

    If you're (like me) interested in design and especially fonts then you should go the extramile and create a font and upload it to dafont.com with a nice GPL licence attached.

    It won't take long and your dafont profile and the font page itself will be shared by the thousands. There are literally thousands of people out there craving new fonts (especially GPL ones because they are legal to share).

    While not all of them will give you a link back to the homepage you put in your dafont profile, you will still get a link to that profile which includes your link anyway.

    Within a few months (back in 2010) I got a few legit PR5 backlinks (site, not domain) and also several PR4 backlinks. Not to mention dozens of PR1-3 backlinks.


    PS: Obviously I won't share the name of the font(s) here so please don't ask. Just look around a bit and you'll see that it's a PR / backlink bait goldmine.

    PPS: Start with a handwriting font since they are relatively easy to create. Or you could create a nice niche related dingbat font. Even for something like payday loans you can figure something out with this method. All legal, all whitehat.

    PPPS: http://www.fontlab.com/font-editor/fontographer/ - This is my tool of choice. I know the price is pretty steep but perhaps you could hire someone who already has this little beast? Fiverr comes to mind and a lot of other options...

    Yup, I know dafont.com. It's my favorite font downloading site. But this method is somewhat new to me. Thanks for the great share!

    It's really pretty easy to get these links.

    It takes around 1 long day to create a simple font and approx. 1 week or 2 to get the font approved. Then you just have to wait for the links to come in.

    Remember that you can increase the number of backlinks by creating font in different font "niches" since there will be diversified audiences sharing your font with the world and create backlinks to your site...
