Many new websites often struggle to gain traffic from the web, and eventually they die. This is because they do not have backlinks to their site. Creating quality backlinks to your site will always give a huge boost to its SERPS Rankings, and so it will make the traffic from search engines rise exponentially.
Backlinks are just normal links to your site, located in some other website. For example CNN publishes a story on a Home Based Business that sells Handmade Scarves in its website. They also provide a link of that website in their story. Thus the owner’s website will have a backlink created by CNN.
In the above example, this backlink will provides traffic in 2 ways –
It should also be noted that you get good benefits when you create backlinks of higher quality. They are those which are made in high quality websites, like CNN is a high quality website.
Since not everyone can have a backlink in CNN’s website therefore I share with you 5 high quality website where you can create backlinks and increase your website rankings.
Below section has this list for you.
Quora is a massively popular Question and Answer website which receives over 100 million monthly visits from around the world. In this website you can get answers of each and every question which you can imagine, like –
Both questions and answers can be submitted by anyone. Since there are no moderation rules, questions and answers are displayed right away.
In the below picture see how a person has created a backlink while answering a question on Pancakes.
I advise you to answer the question in the best manner as possible and avoid answering just for the sake of making a backlink. Good answer gets Up votes by other members and are shown on the top, which results in more views.
Reddit is a high traffic discussion based website allowing people to submit links or text post. It is in the top 50 websites and gets close to 25 million monthly visits globally. You would definitely not want to lose a share from it.
The best thing about Reddit is that unlike other websites which are controlled by moderators and editors, Reddit is controlled directly by its users. They up vote or down vote the links, and are also very active in catching spam links.
At first you might say it looks ugly but its functionality is just great. You will soon become a fan of reddit.
Always submit your links to only the related categories (known as subreddit). The key to get good response from reddit uses is by submitting high quality links only. The more up-votes your link get the more it will be shown to the users.
See how an iPhone 6 Plus link got 266 votes. It could have easily fetched them over 2000 visits.
HubPages is a highly popular revenue-sharing website. You can submit any type of articles which are known as Hubs. The website generates revenue from the hubs in 2 ways –
HubPages share the revenue with the hub owners in 60-40 ratio. 60% for hub owner and 40% their’s.
You can add one or two links to your site in your hubs. The article acceptance is very high in HubPages so you can quickly get good number of links to you site. All you have to do is write some good quality articles in any subject of your choice, and submit them for inclusion.
Another top name in article submission websites is that of EzineArticles. It is a major competitor of Hubpages and also generates a lot of traffic.
Nearly all webmasters submit articles in this website in exchange of getting backlinks to their websites. You should not miss an opportunity to get a backlink to your site from it.
The submitted articles are thoroughly checked by their Editors for quality before inducted then into the website. The article acceptance rate is lower than HubPages, therefore submit only high quality articles.
Pinterest is a social network where people share and discover great Visual contents from around the world. With an Alexa rank of 32 and over 100 million monthly active user base, the backlinks created here has a very high value. The best way to make a backlink in Pinterest is by creating a Board and then adding your links (known as pins) into it.
Submitting catchy and attractive pictures is a mantra to grab user’s attention and will increase your follower’s base. Users also re-pins your pins, in their own boards, and this make your pins to reach more and more users of Pinterest.
Making backlinks in these 5 website will affect your SEO and rankings in a great manner. I recommend not to limit yourself only to these and try making backlinks in other good websites too. This will give you top 10 ranks in SERPS for your targeted keywords.
I advise you to use SEMrush SEO Tool to find out where your competitors are making links and then you can do the same for your website too. SEMrush will alert you in case of any toxic backlink links to.
It is better to make 1 backlink in a high quality website than 100 backlinks in low quality websites.
