Getting backlinks to your site is an important function of making sure your site goes to the top of the search engines. These days, there is a lot of conflicting advice on where to get backlinks, and what Google likes.

Remember that Google wants to see you build backlinks organically.  That means little by little over time. Gone are the days you can get 10,000 backlinks in a day and shoot to the top of the search engines. They are smarter than that.

Here are several good ways to get good backlinks to your site.  A little “push marketing” doesn’t hurt, and if your content is good, people are going to want to link to you, and the backlinks will come.

1) Do some social bookmarking.

Go to and bookmark on 10-12 of the 70 or so bookmarking sites on that page. You will have to create accounts for all of them, but it’s a good way to get a decent amount of backlinks to your site so you’ll get indexed fast.

2) Write and distribute articles on

Publishers are always looking for content and is a great way to get some back-links by publishing articles. Not only that, but people can actually take those articles and publish them on their own site, thus giving you more exposure–and more backlinks!

3) Comment on other people’s blogs.

This is an effective way to get backlinks to your site. Give meaningful responses to blogs in your niche. And don’t “spam” blogs either with spam comments like, “This was a great post”, etc.

Most of the time, your comment is moderated and it will not show up unless the site owner approves it.  That’s why you need to make sure you leave a good comment that refers to the blog post specifically. That way the author knows it’s a real person doing the posting.

It’s also a good way to get to know people in your marketplace!

Keep Selling!
