You’ve created enough content. And you might not be getting the backlinks you imagined would appear before your very eyes. Sure, you might have some.
But if you’re reading this article, you’re probably tired of creating so much content just to get a backlink or two to your pages.
That’s ok. Because there are plenty of other ways to get quality backlinks besides just creating fresh quality content. And we’ve got a bunch of them right here for you.
1. Get Quality Backlinks By Submitting Your Site To Blog Aggregators
Dofollow links are usually free on most blog aggregator sites like Alltop.com.
How is it done? Just submit your site to the aggregator.
Add a special unique HTML code to your site to confirm your ownership. Then wait for someone from the aggregator site to confirm your site.
2. Website Feedback Is Always Welcome
Writers are used to constructive criticism.
But a lot of people don’t take it well. Well, you should learn to accept constructive criticism because it will help you improve your site. And it will get you backlinks.
Find a good website feedback site and submit your site. This will result in a little website review and a nice little dofollow link with your URL there.
3. Get Mentioned On A .EDU
You don’t have to have a Ph.D. to get a quality backlink from a .edu.
Resource pages can be about anything from dog grooming to trade stock to paleolithic artifacts.
Use these search strings and contact the webmasters and departments running the pages to see if they could use any of your information as student/faculty resources.
- site:.edu “your keyword”
- site:.edu “your keyword” + “resources”
- site:.edu: “your keyword” + inurl:links
- site:.edu: “your keyword” + “other sites”
4. Help A Reporter Out
The press is your friend.
And when you scratch their backs they’ll scratch yours.
Sign up for HARO as a resource to get emails specifying needs reporters might have. You can quickly respond with the information they might need and they might use your page in one of their articles as a resource.
5. Create A Scholarship
If you through scholarships were only created by alumni with one foot in the grave, you’re sorely mistaken.
Scholarships can come from anybody with the money to make it happen.
If you have a little bit of capital you want to be tax-free, then consider starting your own scholarship. Present it to a University and if they accept, you will have a .edu quality backlink in your pocket.
6. Have A Blogger Review Your Product
Reviews aren’t just buried behind the sports section of the daily paper anymore.
They’re in broad daylight online. And you can find any number of bloggers out there willing to review your product just for a free taste.
Depending on what you make, you could even have YouTubers make video content about your product. Find a few bloggers or vloggers and send them your product with a letter explaining what you want. It might take some fishing, but you’ll have a happy blogger linking to your stuff eventually.
