    Some of you may have come across this and bookmarked it at some point. Other's of you may have NEVER seen it before until now. This is by far the most comprehensive list of linkbuilding methods I've ever come across.


    Here's just a sample of some of the linkbuilding strategies:

    • Logo Design Directories - Most of you have logos for your website or company, so get a few links in return for them.
    • Guest Posting - my personal favorite -Bloggers, just like me, sometimes have trouble cranking out content on a regular basis. That's where you can help. Pitch bloggers to ask if you could guest blog, because if they say yes, you can get a few links from the post, and if the blog is popular, you can drive traffic too.
      Here's a fantastic guide on the entire guest blogging process.

      If you want, use sites like Blogger Link Up and My Blog Guest to connect with bloggers who need content. It's scalable, but the bloggers you get in touch with aren't usually very authoritative (they're mostly mid-level bloggers).
    • Entering contests & giveaways - I love online contests, and so should you. They're not only your chance to win some cash or prizes, but they're also a chance to net a few high quality links. The most popular contests & giveaways you'll see are guest blogging contests.

      For instance, I not only got a link from this post I entered, but I also won the $1000 grand prize. Not bad, eh?

      Here's a great example of where your great content pays off. I entered an infographic created by Kapil Kale, one of my friends, into a contest on StumbleUpon, and it got a link from their blog! Talk about high quality links!
    • Get Interviewed -Just like you should interview others, seize opportunities to be interviewed, no matter how small the audience is. The 5-600 words that take you 15-20 minutes can turn into a few highly authoritative contextual links.
    • Petition - If you and your community are passionate about a certain issue, start a petition. If you can gain any traction from an industry news site, it could catch on like wildfire.

      This petition received 1,100+ links from over 200 root domains.

      Note: Although not recommended, because it isn't hosted on your site, one option is to use change.org to start your petition. It's an easy set up, and because it's hosted on their all ready popular site, you get all the added benefits of professionalism & exposure.
    • Video Embeds -By including links in the embed code of videos, and reaching out to bloggers to host them (i.e. as part of an upcoming post), you can get a link for each embed.

    What are some of your favorite strategies mentioned in this list?

    MOTHER OF POSTS! :O

    Pointblank SEO just solved the internet! Not only that, they made SEOMoz look like a kid playing with a stick in the mud!

    No doubt....It's sad that SEOMoz doesn't post content like this.

    While I know a shitload of linkbuilding methods, there are quite a few that I've never even considered when going through this list.

    True, but there's a few blackhat methods in there as well. Such as reviving Blogspot blogs that have expired for PR. A brilliant method that I'd never thought of before.

    Well, sure it's not for everyone, and I'm like you. Most of the white-hat shit makes me wanna throw up. The nice thing with this list though is a lot of this can be outsourced, and scaled in some way or fashion. That's what makes it fun for the BH's.

    It may sound like that, but I guess most people here aren't doing blackhat for philosophy reasons, instead it's all about money. So any method that works is good, even better if it's white hat, because that way there would be a lot less chances of being penalized by Google.

    Does anyone have any experience with this method?

    I'm extremely interested to see if there's a way to automate and scale this? It could be a nice service that someone could offer on here....

    Yep, although I'm not sure what that's gotta do with anything.
