What are your top SEO Link Building Methods?


I just want to know which link building methods SEOs are using in 2021.

I am doing:

  • Guest Posts (paid one :frowning: no free available)
  • Social Bookmark
  • Classifieds
  • Comments (only relevant blogs)
  • Local Business Submissions

What are your best and easy link building methods?

You’re… paying someone… to guest post… on their website? I… what?
They get free content… in fact, it’s not even free, you pay them to take your content, and you get a link in return? The newspapers are doing it the wrong way around, clearly…

For link building following activities can be done:

  1. PPT Submission
  2. Directory Submission
  3. Forum Submission
  4. Press Release Submission
  5. PDF Submission

This comes up time and again, so before anyone is misled and thinks it would be a good idea to post links here, let me make clear: most reputable forums (like this one) mark user-submitted links as nofollow. Link-dropping on forums is much more likely to get you banned than to improve your search engine ranking. It will certainly get you banned from SitePoint.

As to the other suggestions, any link you place yourself is regarded as largely worthless by search engines.


the main way we build links across our 2 websites is through crowd-sourced link-building. we land at pretty good high DA domains too.

You can do the following things

  1. Social bookmarking
  2. quora posting
  3. forum
  4. classified ads
  5. profile creation
  6. image and video submission
  1. If you’d read the OP instead of just responding to any thread with the words “SEO” and “Link” with a generic copy-paste list of drivel buzzwords, you’d know that the OP has already done that.
  2. Please stop advocating the misuse of Quora.
  3. Any forum link you can place yourself is worthless. 99% of forums are nofollow anyway, including this one.
  4. Again, the OP already does that.
  5. Randomly creating profiles on websites. That’s your idea of link building?
  6. To what? OP already says he guest posts, and submits stuff to his local businesses…

Create unique useful content that people would want to share and recommend.
Reach out to people who are interested in your content and have already linked to similar content. If it is quality content, they will be happy to link to it.
Look up the Skyscraper Technique.

As mentioned from other fellow contributors that most user generated links are nofollow, so why go through the trouble and waste your time doing that?

ok, I am new here. I don’t know how to keep comment on this site.

No reputable site will allow their comments to give dofollow links.
No reputable forum will allow their posts to give dofollow links. (Hint: This one certainly doesn’t.)


As the OP has never returned, and we seem to be going over the same ground yet again, I think it’s time to close this thread.

Thanks to all who contributed.
