How to Find Relevant Backlinks for Your Site

25 comments, 02/04/2012, by , in Plugins and Tools, SEO

Find BacklinksAs all web developers and search engine optimizers know, having a steady amount of quality backlinks can make all the difference in the world between your site being on top of the search rankings and languishing in obscurity on the fifth page of results.  Too many times, people go out and try to obtain backlinks in the form of quantity as opposed to looking for quality, reliable backlinks.  Luckily, there are several things you can do as a webmaster to maximize your website’s visibility and to obtain quality, relevant backlinks.  Outlined here are some of those methods, which will hopefully aid you in your quest to become the master of your search queries.

Focus on the Niche

Does your site cater to multiple audiences or provide an array of different services or information?  It may be more to your advantage to attempt to locate individual sites that deal with specific categories mentioned on your site and attempt to work out an affiliation with the other site in question for just a particular page.  One site may want to link to your news content, while another may find compatibility with a particular type of product or service that you offer.  In exchange, be prepared to offer something of similar value to the webmaster of the site from which you wish to have a backlink.  In many instances, both parties will have something to offer and definitely something to gain.

Research Keywords

In many instances, you can find sites that you wish to backlink to by exploring new keyword combinations and categories.  For example, if your site shows up on the second page under the keyword phrase “silicone supply outlet”, then finding a site on the first page of results that will agree to do a link exchange will instantly boost your PageRank and get you closer to where you need to be.  While this may not be the easiest type of backlink to get, the value in securing a link from a more popular site pays off dramatically and will help elevate your website’s standing.

Publish Articles

There are several article publication sites that will automatically generate high ranking pages on each and every keyword or search query imaginable.  A great way to get strong backlinks without going through the hassle of dealing with other webmasters is to create custom content and publish it on sites such as Ezine Articles, Squidoo and other similar places.  By leaving your website in your signature or at the bottom of the page, your site will be associated with the article and as a result, be ranked higher in search results due to its association with the premium site on which you have published the backlink.


If you can come up with a few general keywords for the categories in which you would like to obtain backlinks, then Pingler’s Link Suggestion Tool may come in handy for you.  By inserting keywords and specifying where to look for them on sites, this tool can isolate and display potential sites that may be relevant to your site and therefore, optimal for link affiliation and backlinks.

    Some good little ideas there. Man it’s hard sometimes to do the backlinks thing. No wonder so many people seek to automate it! But I think a bit of good old elbow grease is the way forward, contacting sites similar or related to your own and just talking to them. Good things will happen for sure. 🙂

    thanks for the information. i should learn more about articles writing to get backlinks. I heard that article directory backlinks are very powerful than blog comment and forum post backlinks

    While this article is very general there are some good points. To benefit from an article or document site requires about 6 to 12 months and a lot of articles, PDFs, Powerpoint presentations and Word docs before your profile gets indexed. That’s a lot of work for one nofollow link. Albeit the docs themselves are crawled for links too. Article sites like Ezine Articles allow author box links but are very strict on sales copy these days and keyword density must be under 2.5% or something like that. In general it’s a lot of work but the sooner you start the sooner your article/doc pages and your profile will grow. The key is to be consistent and also to get involved in the social features of those sites.

    Great information thanks for sharing.I use pingler in my website.

    Great article. I think people underestimate the power of guest blog backlinks, and also backlinks from article directories like Ezine, ArticlesBase, and so on. I think SEO is only getting harder as search engines continue their crusade towards only the highest possible quality content – so therefore it’s important you invest in high quality links from real/good websites. You’ll obviously need high quality content in which to embed those links, though!

    Thanks for the tips. I find that commenting on news articles works best. Find a topic that is directly related to your website and post a relevant comment. Using googles news search is excellent for this.
