    HIi.

    Thanks for making me right ...

    I am many time see many SEO experts using this techniques like create own another blog and add unique post with their targeted URL and finally they got result and other things directory listing, bookmarking, classifieds is old and it not work for site ranking because google bot avoid this techniques but Guest posting and Blog commenting is work for SEO now a days. :)

    Thanks..

    Actually, blog commenting is no longer an accepted link building technique. Guest Posting fell out of favor for awhile due to abuse, but can still work as long as your Guest Posts are targeted to a related niche, are very informative, and are submitted to high quality blogs.

    The content should be fresh and lively , not a plagiarized one, the appropriate use of keywords should be there in the text, And when it comes to back-links, promotion of that content is to be done and yes somewhere forum also helps in this. bit make sure its is not a spam, else there will be no use.

    Both the things are important, but primarily focus should be on content.

    Creating compelling content and then earning links via ranking that content is what I see as a viable strategy. Without content there is no link, so both compliment each other in some way or the other.

    It's necessary to have good and readable content o your web page. Also backlinks is an important part of it. There is no way to increase the amount of backlinks, but forget about the content on your web-site. In this case, your customer will be unhappy to see your page.

    One more thing, It could be better if you started unique business, then you will be on the top of any search engine

    Both are important and Both takes time. As all said Content is king, You need to analyze for which industry you are writing the content and what are the main keywords you can use. And when it comes to backlink generation there are many techniques involved like latest one blog posting, most popular and effective SEO technique.

    Search Engine prefer only quality, fresh and unique content and if you have log content on your website or blog post then with images that's very good for search engines and users (reader) as well. its also best way to generate the back link through the content marketing activities like guest blogging, press releases marketing and article marketing because that's very beneficial.

    Here I vote for Content. Google always love to see the product or brand news online. They track how many clicks or share you earn from your content. If they found then they give your website with some extra credits and increase your keywords rankings.

    Both are important and safe enough. But while creating new content you should always emphasize on grammar, spelling and fresh idea as well. And for building backlinks you should find out niche relevant websites, use the appropriate content. Fresh content is better. Always try to build do follow links as much as possible.

    If you want to ask between both things then according to my opinion creating unique and good content is important than building backlinks

    Creating content and building backlinks both are important to do because the content is king and building backlinks are very important to gain the traffic. The unique and quality content will present the more traffic on your website. Google always checks for quality and unique content when it crawls your website. It's good that you have started working with backlinks. But if you are building the backlinks then build good links for getting high-quality backlinks.

    Content is king. So focus on creating great content. Backlinks are a great help, too. If you can create great content with backlinks, that would be golden!;)

    A good balance between both aspects is important. Without good content, the readers won't be engaged, and a decent amount of backlinks are necessary so your webpage will be recognized.

    Well i think efforts on both sides are important if you want traffic on your website . We all know that content is the king but building backlinks is also important according to google algorithm but i prefer to keep the fresh content as first priority compared to building backlinks activity. Google loves new content so focus on it and after that you can create backlinks on the basis of fresh content.

    There is a caveat to this statement. Google likes the right sort of links. They have changed focus and it's now much more about referrals and citations.
    Google also loves golden content. If it's still relevant and adds value old content can outperform fresh content.
