Step 4: Have some authority Backlinks
Now this step is related to off-page SEO and is as much important as the other steps and on-page optimization. This factor boosts the page ranking. However link building should be natural, over linking your website with low quality or spamy-links will have negative impact.
To do it naturally, first of all build a link building plan. Try to start from small i.e. get one or two links every day, or 5 to six links to a newly published post and then gradually increase the number. Keep in mind that quantity doesn’t matters; it is the quality of backlink that works.
Natural way of link building is following
- Guest posts on niche relevant blogs. Go find some and request the author of the blog to put your post with link back to you
- Answer the questions on Yahoo answer and put a link there to the relevant post on your blog
- Answer the questions on Quora and other alike platforms with same strategy as for Yahoo answer.
- Be active on relevant forums. These are the best sources of getting links
- Submit your blog to directories like Dmoz, Yahoo directory etc.
- Comment on the blogs in your niche.
