    • Abegail,
      Thanks for sharing some more places to build backlinks for your SEO. I want to remind my readers to not get overwhelmed here and think that you need to be using all of these techniques — you don’t. From the search engine’s standpoint, it is important that your links be built in a consistent manner: you don’t want to build 100 or 1,000 and then stop. So, pick 1 or 2 techniques and focus on those ONLY until you have made a habit of building backlinks that you find easy to maintain. Then, add another one or two techniques (and drop the one that is either the most work for you or that is not giving you the best results (you are tracking your results, right?)). Slow and steady is how you succeed with link building.

  2. Some very good tips. As hard as it is sometimes, I like to be patient and just do a little bit of linkbuilding every day. The quality links take lots of time so there’s no point rushing it and going for poor links.
