This article is written after getting inspired from a video by Matt Cutts, the head of Google SPAM Team. He clearly mentioned some good points on how to build organic backlinks.

What are Organic Backlinks ?

There are thousands of ways to build links to your blog and none of them are equal to “Organic Backlinks”. In simple words, organic backlinks can be explained as the links that are naturally constructed, which usually happens when you focus on high quality and unique content.

How to built Organic Backlinks ?

Here are 5+ sure fire tips that help to built organic backlinks to your blog.

1. Controversies

Indulging in a Controversy will easily highlight things mostly if you are on the negative side. You need to follow-up regularly and have to be in touch with trending topics. Words have such a great power and believe me, with a single blog post you can grab the attention of the whole media. Play it safe or otherwise you may face some legal issues.

2. Experiments

Experimenting on things will depend on your interest and passion to achieve something. Not everyone can do experiments as it needs lot of time and patience. So, if you are goot at something, then try to experiment on things and publish posts like How-to guides on your blog. This is how unique content can be built and organic backlinks will flow to your article, sometimes for years.

3. Freebies

Using a feebie to get subscribers and backlinks is an old yet powerful strategy. You cannot get backlinks immediately, but over time you can get some quality backlinks. This depends on the quality and type of freebie you are providing. If its a regular one, like a free PSD template or a free theme then there wont be much use. Try to work on creative things and give them away for free.

4. Communities

Lets consider some blogs in the WordPress niche. There are quite popular and useful blogs on WordPress that help to make the most out of your WordPress blog. Whenever they write an article or list out some resources, links to the articles on other blogs will be included. This purely depends on the author of the article and so its necessary to establish some connections with fellow bloggers.

5. Video Blogging

Many have the talent to create useful videos yet don’t try it. Consistent exposure can be gained through video blogging and if you need a sort of inspiration to start with, then you can check TheNewBoston (http://thenewboston.org/tutorials.php). That guy got good programming skills and he is sharing some knowledge through his videos. Make videos and your articles will be linked on many blogs.

Bonus Tip

Forum Participation also helps to get some backlinks. All you have to do is help others by providing some useful answers for questions in sections you have knowledge on. And important thing is don’t SPAM posts with single word answers, it may result in a ban.

    Hi Bharat, thanks for sharing this. You asked for feedback…so let me throw it right at you ;-) What about paid links… I mean this has been an will be a big discussion with all those updates and punishments by Google. However, even though there are hundreds of SEO’s and agencies out there, I think there are only a handful that are worth a look. So for my sites that are solely for the US market, I am using Linkworth and text link ads to some degree but I stay away from networks like BMR for example. As I got a whole bunch of blogs and/or sites that target the European markets, I found a company that lets me approach this in a more country specific way. Check it out and let me know what you think of this one: http://www.teliad.com/about-us/news.html?id=67

    Nice one! But following each of these points is not possible as it also depends upon the niche of your blog. Sometimes it might not be possible to include any trending topic just because your blog theme doesn’t allow that! But these are certainly the points to remember in mind! Thanks :)

    It’s a pretty lean post, Bharat, as far as content and suggestions go. Though, the few ideas mentioned are quite useful…

    Building organic( natural) backlinks takes time, and it can be a slow process…

    Also, even though Google has gone on the hunt for sites using “unnatural link building methods” many sites are still heavily involved in this, and in many cases seem to be getting away with it(for now, anyway)!……..

    Writing great content is one of the most crucial thing.Link building strategies need to be revised on a regular basis.Cant predict what google will impose upon us with the next update.
