Hi,

So its mid of 2017 and still nothing new is seen in Link building. I am seeing the same old methodology like Guest posting, Commenting, Broken Link Building/Acknowledging, Reddit and so on. My question is which top 3 or 5 methods are best to build links?

I have played along all the said above and yes they work to some extent but still you need to depend on content a lot what I see. Any other ways where you need to attract links to your website?

Awaiting ideas to pop up like a popcorn does when heated.

Thanks

There are a lot of discussions on this topic, you can read some pointers here: [webmasterworld.com...]

Linking strategies haven't changed much since that discussion and there are good ideas in that thread. Another, more recent is available here: [webmasterworld.com...]

Hello,

Thanks for that thread info but I have had already gone though both of them. I didnt find much info than people shouting or being angry on their experience with others approaching them,

I understand its mostly a one on one approach where a user is looking for a link and not doing it properly. So apart from that how else I can build a good link strategy.

Still not clear here.

The approach I've used most successfuly is to create content that's so good it's worth bookmarking. It takes a fair amount of effort, but IMO it's much more rewarding, both on a personal level and on an SEO level, than the same time spent chasing links to pages with crappy content.

... but still you need to depend on content a lot
Of course you do. That's the point of it.

Socisl Media is fertile. FB Groups (and others) are target audiences. I've been sucessful developing steady linkbacks from relationships developed there, but it takes nurturing & time.

One thing we did and got good feedback was feeding a linkedin page links and then linking from that page to our articles. It works really good and helps rank our articles a lot. So you can't just say social media is fertile and forget about it.

The other thing I can think of, is guest posts. But not ordinary guest posts. Write something so good that Smashing magazine, or CopyBlogger, etc. would accept to publish it. That's where you make a difference.

There's also the option of exchanging articles. We tried that and it can have good effects on your website. Especially when you exchange with authority websites.
