    Links still remain very powerful but tools like Xrumer, Scrapebox, SenNuke, and AMR are decreasing in ranking power.

Read the full description below and learn how to safety and effectively SKYROCKET your rankings!

    Breakdown of Each Method
    The following breakdown of each method describes exactly how to utilize each strategy and what warnings and precautions to take in order to maximize your efforts.

    Press Release Submissions
    News sites love free content. While you can use a service like PRweb to easily submit your releases, you can achieve virtually the same results for free by utilizing alternate submission services. In order to get your release picked up by the maximum number of news sites, make sure you use at lease 3 images, make sure your content is over 1000 words long, do not post more than 2 outbound links, and break up your content into 150 word blocks. DO NOT use exact match anchors on press releases!
    Top 5 Free PR Distribution Sites: PRLog.org, PrCompass.com, PR.com, i-newswire.com, NewsWireToday.com

    Online Company & Niche Directories
    Although directories do not provide a huge amount of link juice, they are safe white-hat links to offset any bad links that you may have. These directories are easy to find. HotFrog.com and Manta.com are two that I always submit to.

    Guest Posting
    In exchange for quality content, you can get free links. Services like MyBlogGuest connect people with bloggers looking for good content to post on their REAL blogs! The better your content, the higher quality offers you get. This is an EXTREMELY safe method of link building. Although it takes quite a bit of time, the return is impeccable.

    Paid Reviews
    This isn't free, but the quality of links tends to be very high. Bloggers look for ways to earn money, one method is paid reviews. You can use services like SponsoredReviews.com or ReviewMe.com to find bloggers willing to write an honest review of your website in exchange for a few dollars. Many of these blogs are PR3+, your link is surrounded by unique content, and they usually provide quite a bit of traffic!

    Blog Commenting
    I'm not talking about Scrapebox, I'm talking about REAL blog comments. When you post real comments and include a more "natural" link to your website, most website owners approve the comment. When done manually, 10 lof these links is better than 100 automated links AND its safer.

    Forum Posting
    Perhaps this isn't exactly easy. But it's another method to consider. There are tons of list of Do-Follow forums. Spend a few minutes, write a few intro posts, and post some footer links to your money site. As with Blog Commenting, manual forum posts are highly effective, automated ones are not.

    Get links from Scrapers and Content Thieves
    Tynt.com is a service that lets you get backlinks from scrapers and copy & Pasters. Check out their site, you wont be disappointed.

    Buy Expired Domains (& leverage their link value)
    Thousands of domains expire every day. Many hosting companies offer domain registration at just 99 cents. By using free drop service aggregators, you can find sites that have natural links from other websites in your niche. Many of these sites are old and have established authority. Simple register the domain again, put some of the original content back, wait a week, and 301 or post outbound links to your money site.

    Create Web 2.0 Blogs
    We've all seen them. Webs.com, Weebly, Squiddo... the results are INCREDIBLE if you fill these blogs with unique or slightly spun content.

    Give Trackbacks
    By making it known that you reward users by giving out trackback links to those users that link to pages in your site, you will get flooded with links. DO NOT WORRY about reciprocal linking penalties, they don't take effect on trackbacks.

    Wiki Links
    This is a method that still works with automated tools. Its easy to find these tools, just search the forums.

    Buy links from Fiverr
    Be CAREFUL. There are some gems in fiverr, but there are also alot of sellers that do bad link building. Don't look for sellers that promise the world. Find more logical gigs that promote things like "on my niche blog" or "with a low OBL" or "Sub Page"... These tend to be less stunning when you read the title, but ultimately are more effective in the long run.

    Scoop.it
    As they say on the homepage "Leverage Curation to increase your visibility.Give persistence to your social media presence." Its hard to explain this service in a short snippet... but its amazing. Trust me.

    Leverage a private link network
    They keyword is PRIVATE as in... NOT PUBLIC. AuthorityBacklinks, backlinks4u, Build My Rank, HighPRSociety... all these networks allowed the PUBLIC to see the links within the network. (Rule of thumb, if there is any way for YOU to see the links, then so can Google)
    Private networks are networks that do not provide reports or allow users to manually select their links. My agency created a private link network for our internal projects and major clients. That being said, we don't publicly advertise this network which is why it still works. There are many users on these forums that DO sell spots on their networks. Just ask around.

    Warnings, Notes & Tips

    - Use MajesticSEO to keep an eye on your link profile
    - Build LOTS of garbage/random anchor texts. If you have 100 links, you should have 50 different anchors.
    - Link Velocity is KEY - Stagger your link building efforts over time.
    - DO NOT ping these backlinks. They will pass more value if you let google manually index them. (Most will get crawled anyway. These are higher quality strategies)
    - If you use Wordpress, make sure your onsite is in order before you build these links.

    Guest posting fine, as long as it's on a quality site in your niche, If it's the sort of site that accepts guest posts from anyone and everyone it's not going to be much good

    As long as the site is of quality.. choose a site though where it will send human traffic also. I think a lot might nofollow your paid link though.

    Oh great! so you have loads of spam scraper sites pointing at you :|

    I have thought about trying it, but it can easily go very wrong, you really need to know what you're doing.

    It's not something I do so I can't really comment too much, better to keep your quality content on site though.

    To my shame I had to look up what a trackback even was..

    1) The purpose of TrackBack is to let a site know that you are referencing them on your on site.
    2) The TrackBack URL is different than the regular permanent link URL.
    3)
    If that is how it works then it won't be good as a link?

    Well again, this will probably get you banned.. unless it's done very very well, but it will most likely get discovered eventually.

    The OP's list is exactly How to get a notice from Google for unnatural links.

    The original post is SPAM
    But a good message as to:
    What not to do and the type of people/companies to stay clear of

    Comments on this post

    • Belfast agrees : I honestly originally read it as that... and thought Darren had the wrong end of the stick!
    • EGOL agrees : OP actually thought it was advertising.
    • ClickyB agrees : ...and it's the exact same post he made in a whole bunch of blackhat seo forums in recent months :roll:
