    Hey everyone, just curious how do you get your backlinks?

    Here are a few beginner methods I've been doing with minimal results:
    - Guest post outreach
    - Pitching answers on HARO
    - Blog comments

    Not surprised the results a minimal. Blog commenting is pointless (links are no-follow), HARO is ignored by Google (self promoting links) and Guest posting only works if the site is relevant, authoritative and trustworthy.

    I've never bothered with backlinks. A well optimised site can rank well without backilinks. The problem is many people want to rank well for highly competitive keywords without the resources to do so.

    Consider that big brands can spend million on marketing (including SEO) - the chances of you competing without similar funding is unrealistic.

    You should focus on your website to rank on search engine firstly. Guest blogging, social media presence and other process are helpful to create good backlinks.

    Nope. All SM links are no-follow so won't have any SEO benefit.

    This is a pointless exercise. All you will get is junk results.

    That’s because you aren’t doing it right.

    Local SEO is not about backlinks. It’s all about your onsite content.

    Guest posting is the best way for backlinks in 2020. It is also called content marketing. Firstly you will outreach the sites in your niche [keyword]"write for us " using this string and much other string like this one. for search sites in your niche and then ready them for a guest posts. and get a link from them.
    Web 2.0 is also useful for link building.

    Guest posting if fraught with danger. It can work but mostly it doesn't.

    In local SEO, business directory citation is totally what matters, it's called "local citation building" and filling with NAP(NAPW) information is an important factor. On-page SEO is important in local SEO. Localization on your pages is a must-do thing. But that's not all at all. It's a fraction of what takes for good local SEO (although it's one most imperative factor right after "link signal" (in local SEO, link building is surely what you gotta do)

    Sorry, but in all my honesty, it's quite an "odd" opinion of yours while every SEO pro encourages "guest posting" which is the form closest to the perfectly white hat link building strategy right after "naturally generated backlinks"

    No they don’t. Those who encourage guest posting don’t understand how the SE algorithm has changed. Google makes it very clear how it regards guest posting.

    I agree there will be some occasions where a guest post can be advantageous but repeated posting on sites like medium add little SEO value.

    Why?

    Google doesn’t care about DA. Google is looking for citations, referrals, trust and authority.

    The best way of building links is by visiting forums and leaving your backlinks over there. It helps to generate traffic and helps to rank as well. But the website being promoted needs to be authoritative as well.
    Guest blog outreach is good as well. It helps to build authority and audience.
    These are the steps I follow to generate backlinks.

    You might get traffic but it won't help ranking. Most forum links are no follow which means Google will just ignore them.

    And guest blog outreach only works in a very tiny number of cases. Most of the time google will just discount the links.

    Self generated links score very low compared to reviews, citations and referrals. It's not what you say about yourself, it's what others are saying about you that matters.

    Basic backlinks can improve the trustrank of your site.

    The more "reliable" your site is, the better you will perform in search engines.

    Basic backlinks will create a layer of trust around your site. This is because you will only use non optimized brand backlinks on authoritative websites.

    We need to note that only bare chain or brand anchor text should be used as the basic backlink.
