3 Methods to Get Large Number of High Quality Backlinks



In order to be successful in your online business, you need high volume of steady and targeted traffic to your websites. This is possible by getting the high rankings in search engines for your target keywords.

There are many factors that determine which website will qualify for the top search engine ranking, for a specific keyword. But the most important factor is the number of high quality backlinks to your website. If you are able to get a good number of keyword anchored backlinks to your website, your website will be ranking higher for that keyword.

In this article I will talk about 3 methods to get a large number of high quality backlinks to your website.

Using WordPress Themes to Get Backlinks:

This is a great method to get plenty of backlinks from different websites, all over the world. The idea is really simple. You need to hire a good graphic designer to create a new, slick, modern and premium quality word press theme. After theme is designed, add your website link with proper anchor text in the footer of the theme. Your theme is ready and now you need to spread it for free. Due to high quality and good design your theme will be picked and used by large number of bloggers, with your website link in the footer. In this way, your website link will be up on large number of websites with very little effort and in very less time.

Become a Top Commentator:

There is a famous word press plugin, called Top Commentators. This plugin makes a list of top 7 or top 10 persons who have highest number of approved comments on the blog. This list is then displayed on all pages of the blog. The Top Commentators plugin is also used by this blog, you can check the top commentators on the right hand side of this blog.

Suppose there is PR5 blog with 200 posts and you are in the list of top commentators. It means that your link will be up on all 200 pages of that PR5 blog. This is a very simple and fun method to get a large number of high PR backlinks. It is recommended that you should choose the high PR blogs with large number of posts, to get maximum benefit.

You will only be successful with this method if you know how to properly comment on the blog posts. If your comment will be useful, related to post and written after reading the post, it will be published by the blog owner. The spam comments are of no use for you and for the blog owner.

Become a Guest Blogger:

Guest blogging is very famous among top bloggers. If you have good and first hand knowledge about your topic then your posts will be welcomed and published by other bloggers. This is the good and easy way to get many high PR and authority backlinks to your website, with very little efforts. This post is a great example of Guest blogging, you can check out how to guest post on this blog.

These were some of the tips that are very effective to get a good number of back links to your website. I would love to hear from you about these methods or any other methods that work well to get quality back links.

    Great article on the benefits of getting quality backlinks as well as where to find some of these highly sought after links for our own sites. Great work Imran.

    Hi Imran,
    Article Pages; You write a text and add in the 50 article archives by 2-3 back links to your site. What you need to do is register and then you just carry on. There are usually no requirements on the quality of the article so it is easier than to guest blog.

    • Free Voip Calls November 3, 2010, 9:17 am

      Most of the article will be marked as duplicate and the backlink will be of no importance.

      • Property Marbella November 6, 2010, 12:50 am

        What I mean is: You should not put in the exact same article and the title 50 times. You should write a BASIC article and title, but then change a little bit every time the title and in the article in all 50 articles, which is very easy to do.

        • Dennis November 7, 2010, 9:26 pm

          I used to submit articles to directories and they didn’t produce the desired effect.

          As for the methods mentioned in the article, they all work, but designing a popular Wordpress theme is easier said than done: given the modern quality standards, you’ll need to invest a good amount of money and time into developing and promoting a theme, and the success is not guaranteed.

          Becoming a top commentator on a popular blog may be the easiest of these 3 methods, but such lists are updated weekly, so you’ll need to comment a lot every week to keep your link on all those high ranking pages.

          • Iroko November 11, 2010, 10:56 am

            Article writing would produce results but it might nit be immediate whereas guestblogging would attend to a specific niche and a growing community, therefore I think guest blogging pays better but it more demanding…

    • Aluminum Cases November 3, 2010, 1:59 pm

      Article marketing may be easier than guest posting, but it has much lower benefits. With a guest blogpost you really get to take advantage of that blog’s existing traffic. With article marketing, your articles get buried deep within huge article directories.

    • Iroko November 8, 2010, 6:12 am

      I don’t know some folks still think that to make money online is a child play, no matter the auto-blogging softwares available, you still have to do the work yourself and God help you, you start seeing result…not some softwares doing your job for you!

  • Second Hand November 3, 2010, 1:10 am

    Good tips, backlinks with do follow is not that easy to get since many people, as yourself does not use it for comments 😉

  • sport tourism November 3, 2010, 3:56 am

    The higher the quality backlinks the more “authority” the link has. It’s from experience that we know the better the quality of backlink the more impact it will have on your search engine optimization.

  • Gabriel@ make cash on the internet November 3, 2010, 4:15 am

    Although maybe not as great as the three methods you listed Imran, I like press releases (although they can be difficult to write at times), document sharing (depends on the site), and tube mogul for those of us who like to use video 🙂 By the way that is the first time I have ever heard of having a wordpress theme created with a link to your site. Great post Imran.

    • Imran Ali November 3, 2010, 5:33 am

      Hi Gabriel, thanks for comment. You have mentioned some good ways to earn some backlinks, but these are not so easy and common.

    • Aluminum Cases November 3, 2010, 2:01 pm

      I agree that press releases are a great link building strategy too. There are countless press release sites that will republish your news and give you more links. It can be tough to come up with something newsworthy to report though. It’s not going to be as worthwhile to send out some junk press release that nobody is interested in.

      • ZK@Web Marketing November 11, 2010, 11:12 pm

        Press realease is a great method for a site to get linkbacks, it has very solid advantages to improve your ranking.

        1) Google values it more than other link building activities it sees it as a natural and contextual way to build links.

        2) It’s has a viral impact, a lot of small online publshers will pick up the release article giving it a boost of natural links

        More natural links = Google Love 🙂

        • used tires November 18, 2010, 7:05 pm

          @Laptop and Zk, what about Paid Press Releases? Do they have more power compared to just sending out your press release to free sources?

          Till then,


          • ZK@Web Marketing November 19, 2010, 5:57 am

            Google values links from authority sites…If you are paying for outsourcing your press release thats fine.

  • Builder November 3, 2010, 4:25 am

    KeywordLuv is a plugin that allows you to add keywords to your name link when leaving a blog comment. Keywords are believed to be more powerful for describing page content accurately to search engines.

  • Lisa November 3, 2010, 10:49 am

    I only started my site two months ago, in one months time from backlinks I went from page 16 to 8 on one key word and to page 2 on another. So it seems to be working slowly.

  • Alex@Jocuri November 3, 2010, 11:59 am

    Designing a theme and spreading it around is a super way to create tons of links that will possible increase a lot in rankings, if the site owners take care of their websites. But after your theme will become obsolete you will have a huge dropping in backlinks…
    Article, Press release and guest posting I think are the most reliable ways of building backlinks.

  • Builder November 3, 2010, 10:04 pm

    I have a lens that I just made for Squidoo, and after some looking around it looks like posting your link on blogs pertaining to your subject is one of the best ways of building quality backlinks to reduce your indexing time..

  • wholesale electronics November 3, 2010, 11:30 pm

    Its always good to learn tips like you share for blog posting.

  • Felicia @ No Deposit Poker November 4, 2010, 1:07 am

    The three you mentioned are indeed excellent ways of getting backlinks. However, I also agree with Gabriel with the posting of press releases. If you are able to post a press release on a quality press release website, once its posted, it can have immediate effects on news search on Google.

  • Gurgaon property November 4, 2010, 2:01 am

    I go through the post and come out to now that all are best for back linking. But as well as if you keep focus on content posting in ezine article it will show good effect on your site top ranking……….

  • UK ecommerce forum November 5, 2010, 1:25 am

    Good post yes when you are in the top commentator list, you will gain sitewide backlink and get to enjoy the PR juice from the blog.

  • Jasmine November 5, 2010, 6:55 am

    The 3 methods you mentioned are certainly very useful in building backlinks. By the way, I like your avatar, Imran. 🙂

  • Peter from Blogging Mechanics November 5, 2010, 11:40 am

    Very good post. I like the strategy with free WP theme. With some outsource programmers it should cost no more then $400-$800, but is worth it for the long run. The same I think applies for plugins, as you will get traffic and backlinks in the same time. However, since there are tons of free WP themes, you need to create a really good one, in order to benefit from it.

    • Imran Ali November 5, 2010, 1:52 pm

      Hi peter, thanks for your comment. You can get great theme in the range of $100-$200, if you are hiring some indian designer. You can take advantage of the websites like rentacoder.com or odesk.com for this purpose.


  • Car Rental November 5, 2010, 12:16 pm

    I think making theme is most powerful if you are a technical guy and can really make good themes.

  • Printable Coupons November 5, 2010, 1:11 pm

    I say, these are extremely effective methods indeed.

  • Emergency Plumber November 5, 2010, 11:14 pm

    I’ve used all 3 of these in the past. I can say they all work well. Good post.

  • Blueberry Fruit Juice November 6, 2010, 12:30 pm

    I never tried Guest blogging before. But it looking me that it can do great impact to increase back links. Great post really i enjoyed a lot..

  • used tires November 6, 2010, 6:01 pm

    using the TC strategy is definitely a great way to gain links but its a very tedious task, you only have the links as long as your commenting, so its a short run strategy in my opinion, and not a long run strategy for backlinks.

    Till then,


  • Daisy November 7, 2010, 1:42 am

    The WP theme strategy sound great, but you need to keep the theme compatible with the current WP version. People will, of course, uninstall the theme if it’s no longer compatible after a Wordpress update.

    Also: I see so many great themes with links pointing to insurance or gambling sites. I will never install those on my blogs.

  • Pacquiao Margarito November 7, 2010, 9:49 am

    Wonderful article! I agree that being in the Top Commentator will help. The problem is that you need to post good comments on the site for it to be approved by the admins and second you need to comment on the site in each article, which of course is not a bad thing because you learn something from the well-written blog such as this.

    • Iroko November 8, 2010, 6:23 am

      And sometimes the admin might reward the top commentators with some cash rewards,or even banner placement like it is been done by strictlyonlinebiz.com/blog/, which I have won for 2 months now, it just about consistency…sharing the good stuff!

  • Iroko November 8, 2010, 6:16 am

    Thanks for the tips, though I do 2 of them, the first one is actually a bit too complex, because after theme has been created you still have to promote it, either through your blog or some other way of promotion, and I would like to add, find a way to always link some your blog post and not just the blog homepage…

  • Iphone 4 Jailbreak November 8, 2010, 1:05 pm

    i have been the top com in many blogs , but google loves a mix of backlinks + the links that are easy to get are less valuabe . going to target guest posting ..

  • Marc The Hypnosis Guy November 9, 2010, 12:58 am

    You can get backlinks by commenting on other people’s blogs. First, though, you have to figure out whether the blogs will let you have a “do follow” link. By default the most popular blog platform, WordPress, inserts a “no follow” attribute into blog comments. Most bloggers don’t understand this or care, and so they don’t change it.

  • Iphone 4 Jailbreak November 9, 2010, 1:48 am

    well i am actually rescheduling my routine to accomodate a guest post each day … hardly takes 45 mins a day ….

  • panic attacks treatment November 9, 2010, 8:47 am

    great link building methods shared here, i also suggest writing quality posts in forum and leave link in signature.

  • raybak November 11, 2010, 4:17 am

    for the wordpress theme trick, people are wise or evil enough to remove copyrights and designer link from footer now a days.

  • Iphone 4 Jailbreak November 11, 2010, 5:56 am

    its a good idea to outsource the theme … atleast 10 -20 good links can be yours …. of not more ….

  • Iphone 4 Jailbreak November 11, 2010, 5:57 am

    some theme designers get greedy and encrypt the links .. its not a proper way to get backlinks … you are forcing someone to link to you …. so i never support this …

    • Imran Ali November 11, 2010, 11:08 am

      Hi “Iphone 4 Jailbreak”,

      Thank u for your comment. It is very common practice that when u are using some theme, software or application for free, you are asked not to remove the owner’s link. So, it is the right of theme designers to get a link from the people who are going to use their free stuff. If anyone don’t want to use their theme, then he/she is allowed, but it is immoral to remove the link.

      So as a conclusion, i just want to say that it is not correct to remove the link of the designer from the theme and it is also very true if link is encrypted. What is the wrong if a designer asks just for a link in return of a superb theme and u are not forced to use their theme too?


      • Iphone 4 Jailbreak November 11, 2010, 11:14 am

        yes , the wrong thing is encrypting the links so that you cannot remove it … if something is free , be it free from all restrictions … rest leave it on the user if they want to keep the links or remove them ….. im sure still they will get good baclinks

  • sell used textbooks November 12, 2010, 2:14 pm

    Those are definitely the top ways to do it. Top commenting can be hard and time consuming but well worth it in the end.

  • Najib Asaddok November 18, 2010, 9:28 am

    Baclinks can help to improve our page rank..thanks for this sharing!!

  • Software Development Company November 19, 2010, 6:19 am

    These 3 are good methods to getting quality backlinks. Press release is good strategy of link building. I’ll try guest blogging.

  • Harsh Agrawal November 25, 2010, 3:58 pm

    Most easiest way is the first one..
    hire someone to design a WordPress Theme for you.. (100-300$) and give it for free..backlinks will follow your way …

  • Kimi November 26, 2010, 9:37 am

    Awesome tips Imran!

    Especially the top commenters point. However what i notice is, some bloggers reset their top commenters LOL.

    In this case, i prefer creating article, submitting them to ezines, and get backlinks, but permanent one, and not “temporary”.

  • Iphone 4 Jailbreak December 1, 2010, 12:47 am

    once you are are visible on search engine , people visit your blog and like your content , they start linking to you .. and organic links start building …. so first few months of hard work … then relax 🙂


  • John January 14, 2011, 1:23 pm

    Let’s just say for seo putting url to site is very easy to do but difficult to find targeting sites that has dofollow pages. It’ll take be months to see your pagerank. These is definitely notes on page rank in seo. Thank You Very Much.

  • Web Development Brisbane April 4, 2011, 4:38 pm

    One of the most difficult factors to get around is the “nofollow” attribute on comment links. It is well worth checking the policy of the site regarding this before you spend too much time commenting.

    Oh, and make sure the post you are commenting on is relevant to your site 🙂

  • top drops August 19, 2011, 11:00 am

    Blog articles garner links because they are interesting, informative, and not overly corporate or sales-focused. The benefit to you is that more links means better search engine rankings and more site traffic, which translates into more sales leads.

  • Melbourne real estate November 15, 2011, 9:42 am

    It was an enriching experience to have extracted information on how to get plenty of backlinks from different websites. I’ve observed the top commenter and the guest posting techniques, these two techniques are just brilliant to increase traffic to your blog.

  • Taxi Pensacola January 8, 2012, 9:50 am

    Good article. For a new website like mine, I find it difficult to get directory links. I registered for a ton of links and can only find two actual backlinks.
