    Sometimes I come across new/different ways of building links which appear very white hat - I think they are very valuable, because the more diverse and "out there" the link is, the better it is.

    Good examples of these are like, generating a game app and submitting it to game sites, recording music and submitting it to places like soundcloud etc - same thing with ringtones as well.

    Hitting these links with high volume blog posts and/or GSA/Scrapebox for tier 2/3 is very effective.

    I think it'd be really helpful to share some link building concepts/ideas that a lot of us might not always include in our link building efforts.

    This isn't a link exploit thread, we're not talking about links that we can exploit, but rather link types that arent usually thought of.

    Take it away, let's hear about it! :)

    Building an online application that people can use is a good way to earn links. Online test could also earn links.

    Creating free online tools, like calculators, is a fantastic way to attract links. And these tools should not necessarily be complex. If it saves somebody five minutes, he'll probably use & share it. The same concerns add-ons, widgets, plugins, badges or icon sets. However, all these tactics require a lot of time and designer's-developer's effort.
