4 Link Building Techniques That Still Work


Starting a web page or website is very easy. But getting quality one way back links to your site is not. You can speed up this boring and tedious task. By simply using a free or paid link exchange service.

Maybe. you have already tried the link exchange services, and have got very poor results from them.

If you have, I can’t really say that I’m  all that surprised because… somebody probably told you that this link building lark is easy. “Let me tell you something.”


“I no longer have any faith in the word EASY.”


In Affiliate Marketing circles you hear the word easy being banded about endlessly.

All of the so called GURU’S use it to sell products to you that are supposedly meant to help you.

Now. I am not writing this article to slag off any Affiliate Marketer in particular. (even though I could)


I am simply writing this blog post to inform you about what link building techniques I use that work for me, and more importantly.

I believe will still work for many years to come.

So, without further delay, and in no particular order.

Here are my top four link building techniques.

1)Quality Content If you want to attract good quality back links to your website, then make sure that you always have good quality content for your visitors to read.

I don’t care how well search engine friendly your page is.

Without good content, your website will die a slow death.

Content is the glue that holds everything together, and its the number 1 thing that must be present on your website at all times.

2)Video Marketing Submitting my videos to video directories is something that I do quite regularly.

I would say that my results so far has been steady but not spectacular.

How popular your video becomes on You Tube is more down to luck than anything else, as I have already stated in a earlier blog post.

One thing that I must add though, is that I get plenty of quality back links from video marketing.

It is something that you could easily do yourself.

There are some excellent free and low cost video software and services that you can use. Such as Animoto and Jing.

Both of which I use myself. After completing your short video. You can automate the video submission process by using websites such as heyspread.com and tubemogul.com

Video Marketing is big right now and I can only see it growing bigger and better.

3) RSS aggregators Submitting my RSS feeds to RSS aggregators has given me a lot of back links.

It is a little-known seo link building technique that works very well for me. RSS aggregators are sites like feedagg.com that re-publish the entire content of your RSS feed on their own site.

So any links present in those RSS feeds show up on these RSS aggregators! To get the best results from this tactic.

You will need to have a decent amount of good quality content on your website first, before submitting your Rss feed.

Otherwise it will be rejected. Practically everyone in Affiliate Marketing is talking about Web 2.0 or is it 3.0

Which basically means adding more social networking in the promoting of your website or product.

Apparently. Google wants you to be far more active online than ever before.

You can no longer just put up a simple squeeze page or website with no real value, and get long term profits like you use to a few years ago.

You now have to be actively involved online in many of the popular Social Networking sites like Facebook, Digg and Stumbleupon if you want to keep your Google page rank.

4)Creating free blogs on authority sites This is one of the best ways for you to get started in Affiliate Marketing, and it is far more easier than managing your own blog.

I have a free blog on blogger.com, hubpages, and until recently Squidoo.

These websites are great for seo link building because they already have great authority with Google.

Since these websites have thousands (sometimes millions) of links coming to the domain.

Creating a blog on these sites means that your blog will have existing authority. Without much link building, it can be lingering on the first page of search results pretty quick.

It is because of these benefits that many people choose not to purchase their own domain. Instead, they prefer to create entire blogs on these websites and then…

…direct traffic to the pages that they have just created.

This system works really well but, if you decide to follow this route. Remember that your blog will be owned by the website owner and not yourself.

So there you have it,  4  powerful ways to get links to your site that will help you rank in the search engines.

If you’re not using any of the 4  methods above, make sure you get started right away

    Hi Paul,

    I think the best way out nowadays for link building are:

    Natural links

    There isn’t the best way out from this ‘mess’ but as long as you are getting good links, you are probably going to be just fine.

    Well, at least for now I would say 🙂

    Thanks for writing this up mate!

    Thank you (excuse me, English is not my mother tongue), I find your article well structured, but I think you are biased in your approach to this issue. This is usually the case with this type of subject, the controversy is never far away. Regards, Tom

    This is such valuable advice. There are two things that I learned. One is the RSS Feed aggregator sites and the other about setting up a blog on an authority site. Thank you.
