Guest Posting

Guest Posting is normally the process of publishing a guest blog in the websites owned by others to get a backlink in return.

Mostly all the majority of guest posts are done as a paid guest post and still there are many website publishers where they accept free guest posts if the content is really good.

Hence you should outreach regularly to good websites and get guest posts done regularly to keep the link building steady. Even one of the leading SEO Consultants in London like Fernando Raymond who is the founder of ClickDo recommends guest posting outreach as one of the best ways to build links. In his videos and articles he has mentioned that using guest posting for link building is one of the best ways to rank higher on Google.

PBN Backlinks

PBN's as the private blog networks is on the list of websites which is owned by the same person of the group of people. Usually, PBN blogs are hosted at unique IP’s at different locations even though it’s owned by the same person. It is hosted with unique IP’s to make sure that Google treats each domain separately.

So PBN links still work for SEO. But there are many factors to look upon when building the PBN Backlinks. You should make sure that all the PBN sites are hosted with Unique IP’s, the PBN sites are with zero footprints.

When building links from the PBN’s the common mistake people will do is that they will use spun content and will build a bunch of links at the same time. Actually, when you are building links from PBN blogs, you should treat it as a normal website and publish it with the good content. Also, you should build links over a period of time and not instantly with a bunch of links. You can check out the book written by me, Dinesh Kumar VM on Link Building Guide where he explained in detail about the link building.

Forum links

Forums are the common place where the users normally debate about a particular topic. Also, you can drop a question in some forums and you will get the proper solution for it from the Forum members. You can find such forums, find the relevant questions or discussions relevant to your business and give a proper answer by giving a reference link back to your website. One such forum is Quora.

Similar to Quora there are many more forums available online and you can make use of it in an effective way. It’s not only to just build links, You can also get more potential traffic from the forum sites.

As an SEO Consultant, you can follow the above mentioned strategies and plan the Off Page SEO. It’s not only about building links. It’s all about putting up a word about your business or brand in the external sources, so the new user’s can know about your brand.
