I am sharing 20 different ways to start building links for your website, Let’s start

  1. Building Good Content, Before Building Links

Firstly, you should start by approaching similar websites and see what’s already in the market and find out ways to do it in a better way or at least do it in a different and effective way which is not already available. It’s your website and only you can make it better.

The key word to build links for your website is Evergreen Content (Evergreen Content is a content that is relevant as well as interesting to attract the readers). Buying link to any content can never be a bad idea, you can build effective links through this.

So collect interesting and relevant content, and get started.

  1. Make Sure You Don’t Have Any 404s & That All Your External Links Work Properly

404 is a bad impression of your website. These are Bad or Broken links. You can Various tools out their helps you to avoid 404s and make your all External link work properly.

If you are at a stage of disadvantage with subpar content, you are at risk of having broken links too. There are two methods, either you install a plugin for WordPress or you hire a service. The Plugin I recommend is “Broken Link Checker” by ManageWP. It has more than 700,000 downloads and is the easiest way to find the broken links on your website.

If you want to use a service to check all the SEO related tools, you can visit HOTH. The HOTH is offering the best package for the bloggers and beginners to optimize their websites:

  1. Make Sure All the Pages Are Indexed Properly

Keep yourself updated about your own website. The websites are working independently but are usually searched by the Search Engines. The most famous search engines are Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. Make sure that your website is indexed on all of the major search engines so that the search engine’s crawler could get to your website as well.

  1. Connect Your Social Channels

Hell of time is required to grow useful followings on your website so it is always advised that the moment you decide for it starts it. Always try to add all the social channel buttons with your blogs to make it more accessible.

Still, there are a number of websites which make themselves hard to share on Twitter. There is a plugin called Blog2Social in WordPress. You can use to share all of your posts on your major social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.

You can find Blog2Social from this Link: https://wordpress.org/plugins/blog2social/


  1. Set up GoogleTalkwalker Alerts for Your Brand, Your Competitors & Relevant Keywords

An email would be sent to you including a list of newfound mentions. If you don’t find links with your website as for the link. Do search for your competitor links, Maybe you get a better idea there.

You can also consider resources in your company, Maybe you can get a good link for your website.

  1. Get Registered on HARO

HARO is an abbreviation of “Help A Reporter Out”. It’s a freebie.

Journalists who search for sources to be used in their own article can also ask for help from you, can get in touch with you through any social media link provided or by simply replying to your blog on your website. And if you help them maybe you can get some really good links

I would also prefer to use HARO in order to get numerous ideas for great content

  1. Quora – Find Relevant Questions and Answer Them

Trust me, Quora is a perfect place to get a start building your link. It’s one of the best ways to get ideas for your fresh content. By the way, Quora is also one of the best sources for information. So Don’t miss on saving it as a bookmark in your search windows (Whichever you are using, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc.).

One thing, there would not be any ranking benefit if you get a link from Quora but will be good for getting ideas, and it’s not a bad deal.

  1. Do Competitive Analysis

This is optional and it will never be recommended to copy your competitor profile as it is. You can get the data, ideas by surfing through competitor website and there are many chances, that they may have got the links you are not interested in.

You can note down general links and go for it but if you are thinking to get the main link of the competitor, it won’t worth the effort.

  1. Check Back on Your Competition Every Now and Then

You may not try to imitate them all, and you may not be able to see anywhere you want a link to yourself, but now and then you can find a good option. You can easily analyze your competitor’s SEO performance and backlinks by following SEMrush below:

<script>(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “https://www.berush.com/static/webpack_bundles/remote.js?v=2”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, “script”, “berush-widget”));</script><div><div class=”berush-root” data-ref=”6547306769″ data-ref_source=”” data-db=”us” data-color=”orange”></div></div>

  1. Try to Mix-Things-Up

You may attract many readers if you add visual elements in your content. This helps a lot.

My brother recently published an exercise booklet for beginners and used many images of characters to illustrate the posture, not the photo of the real person, this made a big success. Visuals sell more than words.

So try adding videos, images, slides, or anything else you would think is unique for your website. Do share the things you would try in the comments section below.


  1. Make Smaller Paragraph sections/titles

We should not write longer paragraphs while posting. Sometimes viewer just wants a glimpse of your content so that they can make a judgment to read further if they find your topic interesting. Sometimes when you read books, some writers write a smaller sample of the chapter at the end of the book so that the first time reader could develop his interest in a short period of time.

Even if you read a research article, you will see that there is an introductory paragraph at the beginning of an article which is almost 10 times shorter than the complete article and includes all the important details from start till end. The reason is that the viewer usually starts reading content with skimming technique. With a smaller text representing full content, the reader easily understands the purpose of the content and his interest is developed automatically to read the full article.

Try writing a summary at the top or end, and never ever forget to include “conclusion”.

  1. Interview Interesting People on Your Site

For me participating in an interview is the most interesting part. Some of the interviewers were very much different as their questions were not like the usual interviewer.

So, if you are willing to interview someone, go for some different directions, so that won’t be bored with the same questions every time.

One more thing, you will not always be getting a worthy link from a person you are interviewing, but this will fore sure get you some social circle.

  1. Do Some Offline Branding (T-Shirts Anyone?)

Offline branding is the effective way of getting links, this will make your brand appear visually in front of everyone.

Many results can be deducted from offline branding like getting a new client, you may meet someone who required help, or maybe you get the link of a local blogger who can write a blog about you or may be some news journalist.

  1. Appear as a Guest on a Podcast or Webinar

There will be lots of promotion and, sometimes, a transcript.

Speaking as someone who hosts a monthly webinar, it isn’t always easy to find guests so if you can find a podcast or webinar that would be relevant to your business, reach out and let the host know you’re available.

  1. Join the Local Chamber of Commerce & Any Other Relevant Entity

Join different groups, or local chambers for networking and developing links. Many towns have various no of groups to get links and become socially active.

  1. Look for Links & Resource Pages

In my experience, these used to be easier to get than they are today but it’s still worth a look. Not all of them can be found by searching for links and resource pages, either.

I recently happened upon one when I was doing work for a home design client.

I’m under an NDA, so I can’t reveal the exact page title. However, it was something along the lines of “Other Places to Look.”

  1. Try to Do a Guest Post or Two, but Don’t Go Overboard

Guest posts have given me some great traffic and a few clients, so I think it’s still a valid way to build links as long as you’re smart about it and don’t rely on it as your only method of link building.

  1. Socialize Other Great Content & Try to Build Relationships with Authorities in Your Niche

Ah even just typing that was difficult because it sounds so trite…but it works.

I’ve gotten some great links from industry friends. I’ve gotten some really great clients from industry friends who recommended me.

  1. Look for Broken Link Building Opportunities:

Sometimes, a lot of work has been put on for nothing, but it worth the time to look every month, just to see if you can find anything


Not all of this can happen overnight. Everything takes time but when you start to build up a solid link profile using all the above-stated points you will not require any shortcut to grab the opportunity. You just have to get as many links as possible as quickly as possible.

Many existing sites have pathetic link profiles. But when you take the chance to get it to start from scratch, you have a lot of chance to do it right.
