    Hello fellow members.

    I have noticed that there can be some frustration around the topic on how to achieve backlinks as a white-hat SEO. Very briefly I thought I would just give you white-hats some inspiration and tell you that it is absolutely possible. It just takes time.

    So you most likely have a website and you are wondering how can I get people to link to my site without buying another Fiverr gig or stressing with grey-hat manual linkbuilding. The solution is somewhat easy. Before I go further I would just like to emphasize that this is just my perspective and view on how backlinking can be done and I am sure there are several different methods.
    • be creative. Your mission is to get links to your site. Be innovative and find new ways for people to link to your site.
      example: For one of my current businesses I created a badge strategy. Clients using my products would be able to upload a simple badge to their site saying they are using my service. In return I get a backlink.
    • Quality over quantity. SEO takes time, especially for us white-hats. But it pays off. Allow yourself to take some time to build up a good idea and get 1 quality link rather then 500 PR2 from Fiverr. It might sound boring but this is key.
    • Social media- every Facebook post works as a link. This is an insanely powerful knowledge. Make sure to create a page for your webpage and provide the users with content they want. Do not spam. By creating enthusiasm among the "fans" you can build up your backlinks as-well.

    It kind of makes sense to implement social media and standard backlinks together doesn't it? - Take the following scenario: a large company is constantly receiving backlinks, but nobody is talking about them on social medias. Is that realistic? No. Google's crawlers and algoritms are smarter then you realize. So you want to have a mixture of both.

    The key thing is to let your imagination go free. Do not let yourself get stuck to a tutorial on how to create backlinks, or buy them on Fiverr. Find out what is most relevant for your site, maybe you should create a blog and post GREAT material there once a week. That will trigger long-tail keywords and get your page more noticed and shared in the social media.

    Optimize your webpage for the users. Not for the search engines. (In the end you will see that they both want the same.)

    I hope this could have helped some of you out and it wasn't a completely boring read.
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Never a boring read to read such informative posts. I didn't know that ever post on fb counts as a link... Would that be true for other platforms I.e. twitter, youtube, pinterest, etc?

    Didn't you just borrow that from the people who answered your question when you created your first SEO plan 2 months ago? :p

    Yes, social signals are important, and you should get them from various networks.

    I would also add 2 important points-
    1. Focus on niche targeted backlinks, from any kind
    2. Drip feed everything over time, in order to make the links look natural (never blast multiple backlinks)
    3. change your anchor texts frequently (again- think natural linkbuilding)
