Top 5 Ways to Build Links for your Blog and Increase SEO ranking
Getting into the good books of any Search Engine is very important for any blogger and it means you have to optimize your blog according to SEO Guidelines. Due to the popularity of Google as Search engine most of the time we talk about SEO related to Google Search Engine Algorithm. There are two types of links that are made no-follow and do-follow links. Search Engine doesn’t follow the links that have the attribute value set as “rel=nofollow” and building links on those doesn’t improve your SEO ranking very much but still you can get into the notice of the visitors. Well in the earlier post I have shown how to make external links from your blog no-follow because you don’t want leak the SEO Juice from your Blog.
1. Commenting on Other Blogs
Most of the links in the Comments tend to have do-follow property which means that search engines will follow your link. But this doesn’t mean that you post comments to each post of every Blog (Well that is not possible), but you should plan your link building strategy. Planning means you have to mark out the list of the blogs that falls into the niche of your blog and make comments which has some meaning and get the visitors interested in clicking your link. Making such types of links on your niche blogs serves two purposes; first you get the backlink from high PR Blog and you get the visitors that are interested in your Blog niche.

Writing article on some of the Top Article Directories has been one of oldest method which is still in use to make backlinks. There are many Article Directories which I have listed under this section that allows do-follow link. Benefit of writing articles is that you can get the approval easily compare to guest post because in Guest Post the author of the blog tries to approve only the content with high quality but for starter it takes time to get into the habit of writing and creating good articles. So it is better to start with article directories and get backlinks.
3. Write Guest Posts
Guest Posting has a direct impact on tour Blog visibility to the visitors and search engines. Always write a Guest Post for the blog that has the same niche as your blog. Guest posting also need some planning as commenting, you need to first research for Blogs having high traffic and Page Rank. Then you should create a list of topics that you want to write for them.
