I have made a deep analysis in order to identify the most significant factor that makes a blog monetization possible. This factor is huge volumes of web traffic. Even if your website is filled with tons of precious information, you will never make a single cent from it if you have no web traffic. For this reasons, online entrepreneurs do everything to increase the number of people visiting their websites. Moreover, web traffic should be targeted. A visitor who is not interested in online business tools will never make any purchases on the website that sells online business tools. Therefore, this type of web traffic is helpless and meaningless. The highest-quality web traffic comes from search engines. This traffic is 100% targeted. If search engines show your website in search quarries, this means that someone has typed a particular keyword. Thus, is someone searches for a specific keyword, he must be interested in the issues he is looking for in search engines. Therefore, web traffic coming from search engines is the most profitable.
Because of all of the above-mentioned reasons, online entrepreneurs work very hard to improve their SEO performance. A website with a good SEO score has more chances to get good amounts of web traffic from search engines. I am not an SEO professional; however, since I launch an online business project, I have to be familiar with SEO. Therefore, I spend a lot of my time reading different SEO books and blogs and listening to audio lectures of famous SEO gurus such as Matt Cutts and others. What I have already understood is that a good SEO score is impossible without having high-quality backlinks. Backlinks are truly crucial for a website’s overall SEO success. As Matt Cutts said, high-quality backlinks and a good on-page SEO are the most important factors considered by Google. Therefore, to succeed in SEO by getting high ranks on Google and other search engines, it is necessary to build as many high-quality backlinks as possible. Now, when my introduction to the topic is finally finished, I will give you the most useful tips on how to build high-quality backlinks for your website.
1) GUEST POSTING
Guest posting is definitely the best way to get some high-quality backlinks pointing art your website. Whilst comments on HQ will give you no follow backlinks, guest posting is always awarded by a dofollow backlink. Therefore, I do not recommend you wasting your time by commenting on famous and popular websites. Here are some of my recommendations if you decide to start guest posting.
a) Publish your posts only on the websites with high DA (Domain Authority)
Domain Authority of the website where you should post your articles should not be less than DA 40. If you have tons of free and useless time, you may also spend it by posting on DA 20 and DA 30 websites. However, posting on the websites with DA 60, DA 70, DA 80, and DA 90 will give you fantastic results in a very short time. If you do so, you will see some of the results very soon. As I never tire of repeating, one backlink from a website with high DA is better than thousands of backlinks from low-quality web resources.
b) Publish your posts on the website related to the niche of your web resource
Guest posting on famous and influential websites is always beneficial. However, it would be better if you publish your posts on the websites related to the same niche as your web portal. Thus, for a business blog, it would be very effective to get backlinks from other popular business oriented websites. A website dedicated to SEO should get backlinks from other famous SEO blogs. For a travel blog, high-quality backlinks from the world’s most influential travel blogs would be crucial. Hence, make a list of famous web resources from your niche. Guest post on some of them.
2) SUBMIT YOUR WEBSITE TO HIGH DA WEB DIRECTORIES
Submitting your website to high DA directories is one of the most popular methods to get some juicy backlinks pointing at your online business. This option does not require much time and efforts. Find a good list of high DA web directories. Start submitting your website to all of them. Usually, these web directories require filling your website’s title, description, meta description, email for confirmation. Thus, it is not a time-consuming procedure.
As I have already told you, commenting on different websites give you nothing than nofollow backlinks. This is absolutely true. Nevertheless, there are some websites that give comments a dofollow backlink. A few days ago, I have commented on dozens of popular websites. In the result, most of my comments received got nofollow backlinks. However, some of them are dofollow. Thus, commenting is not always useless. Some of the famous websites give dofollow backlinks for comments.
First of all, make or find a list of the websites commenting on which will give you dofollow backlinks. Spend some of your time by leaving comments on them. This will give some good exposure to your website. In simple words, you create some high-quality content and spread it with the intent that some famous and popular websites will publish that content on their web resources. If they do it, you will get a high-quality backlink. Just imagine, you spend a lot of time and money by creating some content, then, you spread it on the web. Your content is recognized by CNN, Forbes, Mashable, Washington Post, and some other media giants. They publish your post on their website with a link pointing to your web resource. This will give your website a great exposure. First of all, your resource will become famous. You will get a lot of traffic. And of course, you will get an extremely high-quality backlink.
4) CONTENT MARKETING
Content marketing is a strategic marketing approach focused on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly-defined audience — and, ultimately, to drive profitable customer action. The most popular content marketing types are:
You write a post about something by including awesome graphics and statistics in it. In most cases, it is impossible to design astounding graphics yourself. Therefore, most of the content marketers hire special companies that design infographics for them. This work may cost from 1000$ and even more. To carry out an amazing content marketing campaign, your content must be really breathtaking. Otherwise, nobody will even recognize it.
Podcasts is another popular way to carry out successful content marketing activities. You record a good podcast and spread it on the web. While doing it, you hope that some of the major Internet giants will recognize it and post it on their websites. If it happens, you will get a high-quality backlink.
Videos are also very popular in content marketing. Let me give you some examples. You are a travel blogger who wants to get some valuable backlinks from the world’s most famous and influential web resources. For this reasons, you record some impressive travel videos and spread them on the Internet. If you are lucky, some of the online travel authorities might recognize your video. In this situation, it is probable that they will publish your video on their websites. If they do so, you will get some high-quality backlinks. This will increase your website’s authority and popularity. Consequently, web traffic on your blog will tremendously increase.
These are some of the most useful and effective ways to build high-quality backlinks for a website. Be patient, build good backlinks, and one day, you will see truly amazing results of your hard work.
