    I am confused about building backlinks to my site. If I build links to my blog through forums and commenting does it help other pages in my blog to rank? or should I build links to the certain page which I want them to rank?

    Thanks!

    You should do what is real. That means, if there is something very relevant on a given page that you want to share, you should link to that page. People who share your page would do the same. Social media activity surrounding a page can help boost its visibility both on the social media site and in search engine rankings.

    Forums and commenting are no longer considered quality links for SEO purposes. As Denise suggested, sharing on social media is more effective in increasing the visibility of the page, and you can increase links to the relevant page as people share it. Networking sites are also helpful, as are social bookmarking sites. It is no longer acceptable to build links anywhere just to increase your ranking. Although links are still important, your priority should be on sharing your knowledge with your desired audience. If they like what they see, they will share it with others

    As @Joseph.Shivell says anything that smells like just manually sticking your link up all over the place is no longer a good idea, and in the event they are dofollow links could result in a penalty at some point from the big G.

    Google wants to rank the best sites, for the queries their users are searching for. So the same principle really applies to linkbuilding - you want to be making content so good that it's better in some way than what's already out there (prettier, longer, easier to read, more informative) so there's a REASON for people to link to it. Then get out there and promote it on social, share it with influencers (e-mail/social) let people who share similar content know about it and so on. With a lot of hustle and some great content that actually serves an informational need that your audience has you can get the kind of high quality, natural links that you really need to be successful.

    Is it really true that forum and blog commenting backlinks not considered in SEO?

    Absolutely. Some people recommend links in a forum signature (I even included one in mine) to increase traffic, but I haven't had much luck with it. Now, it's more important to reach out to your potential visitors with articles and sharing blog posts on social media, in networking sites like LinkedIn, and on quality social bookmarking sites.

    I m really don't agree with you, i m using blog and forum commenting and it helps me a lot in improving ranking, you just need to know the way of using the keywords and it's density.

    Okay let's say you build high quality links to your website (not from forum/blog comments you mentioned). It will depend on how your website is structured and optimized for a certain purpose. If you are not familiar with Silo site structure, go review that one.

    You can control the flow of the link value that comes from the homepage down to your inner pages through proper silo structure. From Home>Category>sub-category>content and back again. This allows the other page to rank for certain keywords without building links to them (of course, it's still ideal to build links to your inner pages) provided that you implement proper on page seo.

    With the advent of penalties that are imposed by the search engines on the websites that used to extensively build links just for the sake of ranking well in SERPs does not give much SEO value. If you want to get backlinks and rank your page, then the content of the page that you wish to rank must be highly relevant, enlight the customers with knowledge and engage the target audience.

    You may have some forum and blog comments, but you are correct about the density. Most of your links should come from the previously mentioned sources, as they are a more reliable indication of the authority of your site.

    Well, as far as driving traffic is concerned Forums and blog commenting are not that helpful yet one can create a trust and reputation of ones business using this by joining relevant forums and blogs and providing useful comments.

    Building links is good. But you need to take care of the good and bad links as too many links can cause Google Penalty. Content is King. So rather you can focus on putting quality content instead. Forum and blog comments are helpful but not necessarily they bring traffic.

    Building links through commenting is not the optimal deal. If you indulge in more comment posting only you may end up in getting few deals. So you need to create your business profile in various social media sites and then keep on sharing the related and unique posts that are informative and how your business helps or useful for customers. You need to develop a large network before sharing the posts, so take social media posting as the serious thing.

    You need to do what's real. That way, if there's something very relevant on a given web page which you need to share, you ought to link to that web page. People who share your page could do the same. Social media interest surrounding a page can help raise its visibility both on the social media web site and in search engine scores.

    Your main aim should be to build links for product pages and not the index page. Actually 10-20% of the links should go to the index page in the form of brand links and the rest should be product related keywords including your brand name. It's all about authority these days and mind you it's more than just building links!

    Social sharing or building back links both will surely work but what exactly you need to do that depends on you. There are many people those just using social media get huge traffic from social media network but apart social media link building also important for a website.

    "Building backlinks for site or page" this also depend on you that what you consider for ranking purpose. If you want get rank of home page so obviously you will start link building for home page or you have particular page to optimize, So you will start link building for particular page!

    Cross linking is one of the best method to gain backlinks. Also there are off-page SEO techniques which results in gaining quality backlinks to your site or page. Video marking , infographics sharing, social media bookmarking are some of the best methods to gain backlinks. Through referring domain backlinks can be generated.

    I'm sorry to deny your point of view. I just find out my competitor build dozens of spammy links and they claimed top easily. Their social channel has little to zero interaction.
