There are really only two methods to get backlinks: (1) Linkbait – this method is where you post great content on your site that webmasters will want to link to; (2) Go Out And Create Your Own Backlinks – this method is used by most of us who are into search engine optimization.
There are pro’s and con’s to both methods.
As for the linkbait method, creating great content is time consuming and the process is slow to get a lot of backlinks to your site using this method alone. Of the positive side, Google prefers the linkbait method, you tend to get good quality links, and is the most “natural” method of building links…albeit it can take forever.
Most webmasters will go out and create their own backlinks. This is done by link swapping, buying, begging, and posting content in a variety of places with a backlink to your site (ie, article directories, press release sites, bookmarking, etc.). The positive spin on this method is that link building is a lot quicker when you go out and create your own, but on the flip side, it is frowned upon by the search engines.
I do both. I create great content (at least I try to), and also I’ll create my own backlinks.
