Backlink is one of the key factor among the hundreds for ranking high in the search engines. The more high-quality links you have to your site, the higher will be the page rank.
But first, we have to know what Backlinks are?
Backlinks are external links from other websites to your site.
Having said that backlinks are the external links but all links are not equal. You must have links from relevant and authoritative websites.
For example, if your blog post is about SEO tactics and you got a link from a site like Health care or any other irrelevant site then when Google crawls your site, your blog will be severely affected.
Most of the people in the past used the tactic of submitting blog articles to Public Blog Network (PBN) for high PR( Page Ranking). When Google PBN deindexing update came, lots of websites and blog were hit by the Google update, and thus their PR was severely affected.
Creating high-quality links is tough but not impossible, and they matter a lot and have a great impact on the traffic.

This is another great way to create backlinks in a scalable way. In this method, first, you have to search for the relevant and authoritative website to get links from.
Next, you have to find links that are broken and leads to nowhere on their website. You can search for the broken links by using the tools like siteliner, Ahrefs, screamingfrog SEO spider and so on.
After getting some of the broken links, you have to write some unique and quality article on your site.
After having a relevant blog post, you have to contact the site owner or webmaster and report them about the broken link they have on their website. Highlight the exact URL of the broken link, so that they can easily find it. Be friendly and provide them your blog post as an alternative.
Why will they accept such offer?
Because you helped them by reporting about the broken links they have. And also their site visitor will get some thing new and face less 404 Page not found errors.
So it’s a win-win situation for both the parties. You got the quality backlinks, and they got some quality content on their site and fixed their broken links as well.
3. Relevant Blog Commenting:
Commenting on a blog that is relevant to your niche is an another great source of creating backlinks. Many people avoid this strategy but believe me this is the practically experimented method to brings visitors to your site.
Commenting like “great,” “fantastic article” and others comments like this don’t add too much value to the site owner and other readers interest.
You have to write some thing that adds further information to the articles, and that can make blog readers know about you, that the person commenting has some good knowledge and skills. Avoid writing long stories in the comments. Put some motivational words for the writer and add some further valuable suggestions and info and that will worth a lot for you to create backlinks.
4. Spy on Your Competitors and Learn From Them:
Your close competitor is the best place to start your analysis. Because reinventing the wheel is a tough job, so you have to search the reputable competitors and know how they are ranking high in the search engines. Search in Google for the keywords; you want to rank for and pick your top ten closest competitors.
After getting the relevant articles, Ahrefs is the best tool to analyze how they are getting the backlinks.
If they are getting backlinks through the guest blog, blog commenting or any other method, then you can use the same tactics to get such high authoritative quality links to your site. This way like your competitors you can also get more traffic and high PR.
5. Niche Relevant Forum Backlinks:
Forums are great places to let people know about you and your blog. You have to search in Google and enter the search string like “forum” + “niche.” For example, I am looking for SEO forums I will type “forum” + “SEO.” This way I can search for the active forums where the visitors comment and post new info.
All forums are not that much worthy for creating backlinks. Dig deep for relevant forums and start discussions and post new content to the forums.
Doing so will let know more and more people know about you. This helps to build a relationship with other bloggers, and thus you can create high-quality, relevant backlinks to your site to make your blog successful.
Creating high-quality backlink can be some time challenging, but this is one of the factor to get more traffic. The more relevant high-quality links you have, the better it will be for the SEO of your blog.
Stay away for irrelevant guest blogging, blog commenting, and other irrelevant tactics. Doing things the wrong way will make Google penalized your blog.
