I agree with timetraveller, it can be very hard in some counties to get links. Same for me, or at least that's what I experience. (I might be doing stuff wrong) but I also have an English site and getting links there is easier, getting great links is just as though.
What I did was trying to find businessespartners and ask them to link to me. It takes a lot of time but after a year it starts to pay off. I also use a lot of social media to get exposure, not sure how those links count.
At this stage I'm thinking to write English content with a subject which should score in my niche (think extreme things ) and send it to English relevant sites. In the end a link is a link.
