The content of your site is far more important in terms of SEO than links, especially links which you create yourself. Links you earn, by having high-quality content others choose to link to are the only ones of any real benefit.

I believe that the best way is guest posting.
You have to contact webmasters and make a deal about your article or link to be placed on that website.

You can just google the server for looking for competitors for the site with similar thematics. I am actually pretty new in that. But I know there are some free backlink checkers. Just find the most useful for yourself.
