Social Media

Social media is a great way to get both direct and indirect backlinks, as many (profile) pages are synchronized with other websites. Additionally, many social platforms (including FaceBook, Twitter and Google+) offer free exposure to a targeted audience.

    1. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge about backlinks and how to get them. I’m just starting up with the link building process for my site, and I already have a few PR5 backlinks from relevant sites.
      So, thank you again.

    2. True True True. I have also found that submitting your Url to massive amounts of free directories helps enormously. Especially if you link back to them from your site. Make a links page, or have it on your home page and deliver these other sites some traffic. Sooner or later, they’ll notice and it will benefit your crusade to a higher page rank. has a good list of fluctuating Pr directories that when you submit your site to them, link back to them, it helps. You’d be surprised.

    3. Everybody wants to have a high PR backlink to their site from a premium site. How effective this backlink will be is decided by what PR that website carries. Of course, if you are getting backlink from a page that is PR 5 or above you have reasons to be happy.

    4. Thanks for the information,it will come in quite handy for building backlinks to my site. Keep the info hot this helps people with business websites.

    5. In response to Ray, submitting your site to “…massive amounts of free directories” does not, in my experience, “help enormously” when trying to raise PR. Free, unedited directories are a throwback to early noughties link building. Today’s cutting edge link building takes place in the realm of social media – YouTube, Facebook, Reddit and Digg are where the real links and exposure are to be found.

    6. In response to the previous comments…this article is about obtaining links from high page rank pages and not about obtaining link popularity which are two different forms of SEO. Link popularity helps you define how the search engines see your site/page whereas page rank helps determine the importance of the site/page.

      Hope that helps.

    7. Okay I need to find some backlinks but was told that submitting to those sorts of “anyone can submit their link” sites, even if high PR, does not pass pr since they have so many outbound links. Better to get a lower PR site one-way that has not prostitutionalized itself out.

    8. How do you get a strong backlink? Unless you know what constitutes a strong backlink, there is no way you can get one. A strong backlink is the one that you obtain from PR 6 or 7 or more. For instance, is one such link. If only your site has a link from there, then you have the easy path to having a strong backlink.

    9. Thank you very much. I’m having a hard time figuring backlinks out.You make it sound simple,and I’m going to do my best to get backlinks the proper way.

    10. I have found the most effective way is to search out good blogs and information sites on which you can genuinely a comment or a contribution which adds some real value. There are hundreds of opportunities for every legimitate website topic if you are patient, look carefully and consider what you can usefully contribute, rather than just rushing in with only a link in mind.

    11. There are many social networking sites like,, and others. You need to analyze and find what makes your site get into it. You can always submit your site to any of these web sites. But then to get into the top echelons of these sites or to make it to the front page of this site, one has to do some ground work.

      And what is that? You need to ensure that you have the appropriate tags done up for your site. If you have tags chosen appropriately, you can also have a backlink from a high PR site for a pretty long duration too. This will ensure that you obtain your Page ranking pretty soon and could be well above 5 or 6 easily.

      Only such high PR backlinks become effective too! Unless you find yourself a good social networking site and understand the working of these sites to push your score up, it is difficult to get an effective backlink! Secondly, only an effective backlink would provide you with hits.

      But then, having a stronger backlink has other advantages too. You will find your rank in the search engine going up with a better backlink score. You can always monitor the number of backlinks you have using any of the search engines themselves. And then keep improving upon it!

    12. Oh man.. i’ve been beating the wrong drum then. So what you are saying is that Quality not quantity?… Make sense.

      I need high PR links to my site…. anyone? Its South Asian dresses website. Let me know ;)

    13. This is a good informing article. Thanks so much for giving us your input into the workings of high PR backlinks. I know this will help with my backlinks as I am in need of high backlinks to help put me back up on page 1.

    14. I would like to know what happens if I buy some backlinks packs from internet ( or ebay) like from seo4u or aladygma-marketing. What is that? Thanks Jaisy

    15. My website was de-indexed from Google. I submitted reconsideration requests several times and nothing. I wonder if quality backlinks would help to get back on the search results.

    16. Thanks for the information. It is quite a bit of work and money getting website ranked in google nowadays. If you go back few years say 2007 it was easy for a company with a website and knew SEO to get ranked in google. The same principles dont apply any more. I am not into SEO but have experienced the difference. Cheers

    17. I have a programming blog and backlinks from different sites but when I am trying to search backlinks through google I cannot find any. My site exists over year but my pagerank is “N/A”. But in search results (by “Perl blog”) it is on the first page. Any ideas what is the reason for this?

    18. High PR backlinks are also built using typical forum entries where you get a better readership. These pages are also found to have higher page ranking and having a backlink from such a higher ranked page is all the better to you! Another major source of good high PR backlinks are the news announcements. If only you could make the news, you will get all the advertisement you want for your site. What more can any one ask for?

    19. The article could have gone into a lot more detail, but thanks for the start. Hopefully I’ll be getting some more high PR backlinks in the future.

    20. Great post. I have experimented with profile links from high pr sites in the past to considerable success. However it is important to get those links indexed. Moreover overdoing it in a short time could prove ineffective.

      Best Regards

    24. The page mentioned in your comment doesn’t exist anymore. Anyway, I think it’s better to build the links yourself than have others spam the Web for you. Use SeoQuake – it’s a FireFox extension – to find high PR pages in a website and make sure they are doFollow.

    27. According to me it is not neccessary to pay for links. I mean, it is always best to try to gather as much free links as possible. Doing SEO through the years, i found out that free methods are the best ones and they give the best results in long therm. We just need to be more consistent and diligent in what we do.

    31. Nice article. Thanks for sharing such a details with us. I hope it will help me to get some top quality backlinks from different sources. Backlinks are really important to get more organic traffic. But we need to search for quality backlinks. Because high PR backlink is better than thousands of low PR backlinks.
