42 Proven Ways To Generate Quality Backlinks


Seo is divided into two parts offsite SEO and onsite SEO and both are equally important for ranking your blog.

Off-site SEO mainly consists of link building strategies and social networking. It also includes many other aspects but link building is most important.

So in this post, I would tell you about how to generate quality backlinks for your blog.

Backlinks are links to your site that indicate search engines to rank your site higher and improve your domain authority. 

Earlier bloggers always focused on building backlinks but after the Google Penguin update in 2012,

 the quality of the backlinks became the main agenda as in this algorithm Google was successful in recognizing spammy and black SEO links and then decreasing the rankings of websites using these tactics.

In this post, I would tell you only about how to generate quality backlinks.

41 Proven Ways To Generate Quality Backlinks

1. Broken Link Building

Use the broken link building method to get backlinks as it is the best method out at present. 

It works on the fact that every popular website has a number of 404 error pages which adds to poor user experience.

 So a genuine blogger would always like to reduce these error pages as quickly as possible as if a user is encountered with a 404 page he would quickly push the back button which would increase the bounce rate which has a very bad impact on Seo.

And there your work starts. 

Firstly find some of the popular websites of your niche and then find broken links(404 error pages) on that website using tools like Ahrefs and Semrush.

 But don’t forget to switch on the dofollow filter in search as your main focus is on getting a dofollow link to your site.

Once you get to know about broken links then all you have to do is to find the developer’s personal email if possible and email him with the information about broken link in his website and humbly request him to put your link related to a similar topic in place of that broken link.

There are 90% chances that the website owner would include your link in his post and this way you can get a number of quality backlinks to rank your site higher in the web search.
