8 Ways to Earn Backlinks to Boost Your Ranking on Google

1. MAINTAIN A STEADY BLOG WITH GREAT CONTENT.

Consistently creating great blog content that people naturally want to link to is one of the most tried and true ways to organically generate inbound links.

2. CREATE COMPELLING INFOGRAPHICS. 

People absolutely love to share infographics. If you create an original infographic yourself, people will link back to you as the original source. READ MORE

3. LINK TO OTHER BLOGS ON YOUR BLOG.

A blog is meant to be a social tool. The more you link to others–especially when you do it in a consistent, opportunity-driven way — the greater likelihood one of those bloggers will return the favor.

4. WRITE GUEST BLOG POSTS.

Write a great blog post, and shop it around to blogs it’d be a good fit for. If one accepts, they should be willing to give you an inbound link in the post.

5. CURATE AND PUBLISH HELPFUL RESOURCE LISTS.

Resource lists are both great link bait and helpful content for your readers. If you create a comprehensive resource list, it’ll be easy for other bloggers to link to it in their own posts instead of rehashing and curat- ing all that content themselves.

6. DO EXPERT ROUNDUPS TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS.

Expert roundups can be a great tool for building rela- tionships with influencers. While these roundups may not get you a lot of links or leads right away, building relationships with influencers will help you get solid backlinks from authoritative sources down the line.

7 .SEARCH FOR AND MONITOR MENTIONS OF YOUR BRAND.

Contact webmasters about turning those mentions into inbound links, but only when it’s warranted — like when they’re citing data of yours, for example. This is a tactic called “link reclamation.”

8. HELP ANOTHER WEBMASTER FIX AN ERROR ON THEIR SITE.

When you find broken links on others’ sites, let them know (politely, of course), and provide them with a piece of your own content that would be a suitable replacement for that broken link.
