5.) YouTube –

10.) Write Guest Post –
When you do guest blog posts, it is a great way for you to reach new audience members that have never seen you before.
By putting articles up on other popular websites, you are able to get your work out to new readers and gain more exposure. This helps in more ways than just a backlink. It increases your online presence and followers.
When publishing a guest article, be sure to link your social media profiles, as if someone enjoys your post, they can easily find and follow you.
Every link on a site will originally link to another page online. However, websites will often shift their content which causes those links to eventually break.
When users go to these links, they come across a 404 error page that says the page no longer exists. This is fixed with broken link building and is a great way for you to gain more links.
This process involves finding links that have broken on other relevant websites and offering the site to replace their broken link with a valid link to relevant content on your site.
12.) Infographics –
Infographics have become a very popular way to bring traffic to your website and gain valuable backlinks. They are also a great way to show your message in a visual way making it easier for people to understand, which is why there has been such a high increase in recent years.

13.) Sponsor an Event –
Sponsoring an event (in your niche) is one of the easiest ways for you to build links.
Conferences will usually list all of their sponsors and link back to them most of the time as well.
This may also be a great networking opportunity for you as well, as it will give you the chance to meet others in a similar niche as you.
14.) Sponsor a nonprofit –
Sponsoring a non-profit is a great way to give back to the world. If you sponsor a non-profit, often times you will get a link back.
You can also give them products or services for free to earn a link back as well. This way you do not even need to exchange money, just volunteer your time and services for a link.
Many non-profits are open to this type of thing because they do not have a large budget, so reach out and give it a try.
15.) Create an interesting Case Study –
Creating a case study is a great way to get backlinks. They are always able to bring some sort of new information to the world in their own unique way. Just make sure to ave proven data, do your research, and try doing some experimentation and test myths in your industry.
Some things you should list while writing your case study are the challenge, background, time frame, the results, and any key takeaways you were able to get.
16.) Skyscraper Article –
Back in 2015, Brian Dean developed the skyscraper technique. This technique has three steps which are; Finding content that is link-worthy, create something more impressive, and sharing this work.
To keep things simple, the skyscraper technique is a method that involves building on the top content out there and making something better.
It is a way for you to make something bigger, and maybe even more visible compared to the other content out there. This is a great method for link building and more of that organic traffic.
When you have a blog, internal links are a key factor in its success.
When you have solid internal linking, you help your users easily find their way through your website giving them a more user-friendly experience.
Social profiles are great because they take so little time to create. It is important to claim all your social profiles, as that will influence your SEO.
Google has favor towards brands that are established over the other sources of content out there.
Having links from your social profile won’t necessarily give you any links, as social media links are no-follow links, but they count as mentions.
Google will then take your Name, Address, Website, and Phone Number of your business and takes note of these mentions.
19.) List your site in trustworthy directories –
While there are many online directories that do not provide much value to internet users, it doesn’t mean they are all bad.
A directory will give you a chance to have a link to your website, as well as provide helpful information for your potential customers.
A good and trustworthy niche directory will typically be attached to informative websites for a specific industry. People will typically have an easier time finding you online when your business is listed under these directories.

White papers make for a great source for share value and earn valuable links.
Although it may take a few tries, linking to others is a good way to gain links back to you. You can do this by tagging them in social posts or other ways you find relevant.
