Whoa, nice list you got there :D Very, very informative, bookmarked for later use. Although I have already read about most of the things you have mentioned I've never saw them collected all in one post. This post is a must read for anyone starting a new website, or trying to get an existing one off the ground.

That's a great compilation on creating quality backlinks. It will sure help the newcomers to SEO. Most of those methods will take some time to create valuable backlinks, but they (the high-quality backlinks) will definitely prove very beneficial, they will give your webpages high page ranks, will rank your keywords in high SERPs, if not on the first page, and they will also bring a lot of traffic to your sites.

This is quite the comprehensive listing of ways to get backlinks. There are some really great ones in there that people do not always think of using. I love the idea of asking other bloggers to Interview you. I have seen this done here and there and I really think it can be quite effective. I think I will try that method next.


What is perhaps the greatest compilation of specific, thought out ways to build backlinks - outside of being lazy and purchasing them instead - is right here before our very eyes. Excellent work, blackdata! Not only is this comprehensive, after rereading the list, it is an absolute gem and the perfect example of where thinking outside of the box can land you. Quite frankly, I can say that at least twenty five of these methods are routes I had never even thought of, but even from this, there are few on this list that can even be found floating around the net with a quick probe. It definitely took research to bring this here on the forums.

I bet if one were proactive enough to employ each of these methods for their website in even a fairly competitive niche, they would be ranking well in no time.

I thought this was just a low quality thread before I got in, but I'm really surprised. These could be really helpful, I'm definitely going to test ranking a site doing only these for SEO.

Thank you.

I would include mobile marketing with the help of software. SEO techniques remain the same, but there is every opportunity for a mobile market at to attract potential customers directly with the help of attractive ads posted through discreet marketing methods irrespective of location.
