    If you do these things correctly without compromising on quality then you would still get results. For example, if you are doing link exchanges you should not be doing two way link exchanges, you should do 3 ways or 4 ways link exchanges obviously with high authority websites which are related to your niche. Some forums can still provide you quality backlinks. Beside these you can do guest posting which is really popular in these days among SEO professionals. You need good content and need to find right blogs where you can post your content and get backlinks.

    I disagree with rf-harris, you should stay away from link exchanges, period! Forum commenting is considered a low-quality link, in fact may forums, including this one, do not allow promotional links in the content of a post. Even signature links don't work as well, either for SEO or traffic generation. Social Media engagements provide indirect assistance, as they are used more to increase authority and to get others to link to you, rather than actually providing a link. Blogs, and articles on related websites, are good sources of links.

    Many of the old ways of "building" backlinks are no longer recommended, as they have been abused by others in the past. As I have already mentioned, social media is a way to get others to link to you. To paraphrase something I was told when I was working for a website marketing firm, the boss used to tell us that a link from Oprah is better that a bunch of links from nobodies. You may not be able to actually get links from Oprah, but it does make the point that the authority of the site being linked from gives value to the link. You want to join and participate in groups that are related to your niche, to let people know how much knowledge you have, and they may then give you a link without you asking for it. With Influencer Marketing, you get well-known people to link to you by showing how much value you can provide to them.
    As I mentioned in a previous posts blogs and articles on relevant sites can provide backlinks, BUT you have to make sure the quality of the blog post or article is high, and the information provided is accurate and up to date. You also have to make sure the website you submit an article is also a high-authority site.
    Some of the things you want to avoid are do-follow blog comments, VPNs, Footer/Sidebar links, and any kind of automated link building software. Also you NEVER, EVER buy links from ANYWHERE - PERIOD!
    Of course, all of this assumes there are no technical errors on your website, and that your website is easy to use/navigate, and your quality is high. If no one likes your website, Google won't either.

    Do try out Local listing, press release submission, online public relation, blog commenting, guest posting, social bookmarking, classified ads, social media sharing, image sharing, infographics sharing and video marketing. These off-page seo techniques can be followed other than Forum and QA posting.

    Why do all this? These techniques haven't worked for a long time.

    Social media optimization increases the visibility of your social media profiles, your social networking activity and your published content so that it is found by people searching for information and resources that relate to your content. Social media optimization helps drive traffic to your website or blog, makes it easier for others to share with their circle of influence, builds community around your brand and helps search engines index your social media profiles, social activity and blog posts more easily.

    Sorry but this advice isn't correct. SMM is becoming less and less effective and the chances of driving traffic and getting likes and shares is minimal.

    Really great well written and structured content that adds value, informs and is interesting to read. Internal linking, good anchor text, care choice of title and meta description. Width and depth to the site.

    Give Google something worthy of ranking.
