How to Build the Best Backlinks to Your Website

I know your burning backlink question.
You’ve probably asked yourself, many times, “How do I build backlinks to my website for the best SEO results?”
You’re not alone.
Even people with backlink experience wonder this from time to time.
And we all find ourselves asking this question again after Google releases a

The Question of Getting Backlinks

So, now you know it’s a commonly-asked question.
That might offer you some relief.
If lots of people are asking, surely someone has answered the question in a satisfying way!
Well, yes and no.
Numerous self-called experts are out there giving different tips and advice but, unfortunately, most of the time, the only thing they do is confuse people.
Today, I’ll make things nice and simple.



Don’t rely on the tips you read from unknown sources. If somebody discovers the secret to rank first on Google for competitive keywords, it’s very unlikely that they’ll share it with strangers.
Always do your research and conduct your own experiments. With very little money, you can create a website to test all types of backlinks and have your own case studies.

Build backlinks with patience

If you’ve just created your website, the chances of getting fast and natural links are almost zero. It’s one or the other.
Natural links take time.

Write the right guest posts for the right sites

When you write guest posts for other websites, don’t do it just for the purpose of getting a link in the author bio.
This method has been abused a lot lately, but with the right strategy, you can stand out from the crowd.
Here are some tips to scale your guest posting technique:
  • Don’t overlook websites that don’t have a “write for us” page. Not every website has one of these. Some of the best websites for getting backlinks are ones without these pages.
  • Only write for highly reputable websites in your niche. Don’t waste time writing for websites with a Domain Authority lower than that of your site. Your link will have very little value, and you might end up having your link removed without further notice. (To check out a site’s Domain Authority and other key SEO metrics, use 
  • Write more than one time for each website. Build a relationship. Put effort into an ongoing collaboration. Otherwise, it’ll be obvious you’re writing only to build backlinks.
    • Nofollow links are great. Not for SEO, but for traffic and to get more followers on social media.
    • By using the techniques I just noted above, I’ve managed to get great SEO results and tons of direct traffic to one of my websites—all from the author bio of my guest posts.
      This is a screenshot with the direct visits received over the last month from an article I wrote for a popular website.This time, I’m showing you the results over the last few months so you can see that guest posting is a long-term method to drive traffic. The results are even greater this time.
      The bounce rate is 57%, which is 27% better than my overall website’s statistics. The average time duration is 109% better than my average visit length.
      Why were the two examples I just shared successful? Because I followed all the rules mentioned above.
      I wrote detailed and high-quality articles on reputable websites in my niche and people loved them so much that they decided to check out my personal website as well.
      I didn’t write them just to get a backlink, but to get both the benefits of traffic and SEO. Even if these links had been nofollow, I would’ve gained hundreds of visits per month.
    • The Smartest Ways to Build Good Backlinks

      The best links to your website are the ones coming from real websites, with good content and lots of social media shares.
      You can either earn these backlinks naturally or build them yourself. As long as they come from the authority websites in your niche, they have great SEO value.
      I won’t insist on a specific link building method. What works for me might not work for you. This is the reason why, at the beginning of the article, I said you should do your own experiments and decide what’s best for your website.
      You can also check out what your competitors are doing in terms of , and if their strategy works, try to build the same links.
