    Question about building backlinks


    So when it comes to building backlinks are we supposed to use canonical links? My concern was I contact other bloggers and they post the article on their website and post the link. But won't this make duplicate content and affect my seo?

    Can you please elaborate your question, the question seems to be making a confusing sense!
    Hard to understand what you are asking.

    When you post an article on a blog, this content is not supposed to be a duplicate of existing content on your site verbatim. It is supposed to be a piece of quality content that has a contextual link that points to your site, which will provide more quality content for the reader.

    The use of a canonical is designed to eliminate duplicate content on your site and tell Google what page is the original url of some specific content and give the link juice to.

    Will building links to your site affect your seo, It most certainly will. In your case, because of your understanding, or lack of understanding, you will most likely destroy your site.

    Basically you have not idea of what you're doing. Proceed at your own risk !

    Ok thanks. So what should I do? You said I don't know what I am doing, I have an app that I am trying to get downloads for, I am trying to build an audience. So I want to contact other people to leave backlinks to my site, I was just worried about them posting duplicate content.

    I had issues finding posts relating to link building. In search I typed "Link building" and "backlink" couldn't really find anything relevant. I couldn't find many concerning topics except for this one How to rank a blog? if this is the type of post you are referring to.

    Duplicate content is the problem if you want other bloggers to give you a backlink then try it some other way don't give out them the articles you already posted on your blog

    Not a good idea to provide the article you already posted on your blog. If your site article is indexed after the guest post article, then your site article will be considered as a duplicate content. Providing fresh new content is the best practise.

    Best Off-Page SEO technique are the following:
    1.Guest Posting.
    2.forum Posting
    3.Blog submission
    4.Press release
    5.Article submission
    6.pdf submission
    7.video submission
    8.image submission
