Cool New Way To Get Backlinks!

struck goldEveryone wants to know how to get LOTS of big fat juicy dofollow backlinks!  But the problem is, how do you do it?  I was asked exactly this question today by one of my readers after he had read my Introductory article on Backlinks and why Google vaiues them so highly.  You can read that article here: Backlinks=Authority+Page Rank=Authority: Why You Need Them.

I’m currently researching (and learning about) this vital topic myself, and will be writing more articles on back linking soon. However… the mean time:

Here is a quick (unplanned) secret Backlinking Tip to be going on with:

What better way to find out how to find backlinks for your own site, than spying on your Competition! Yes! I knew you would like it! Smile

How To Get Backlinks: By Spying on the Competition.

There are lots of websites that collect Backlink data and publish information about the typesboy spyglass and details of the linked-to websites.  Mostly we use these websites to check on how well WE are doing in our backlinking efforts…or not.

However, anyone can enter any Domain Name they like, and these data collecting websites will deliver information about the backlinks for that site.  So….one way to find out where to get big fat juicy dofollow backlinks is to see where High Ranking competitors in your field have managed to win their dofollow backlinks.

DoFollow Backlinks Are The Ones You Need

Backlinks are of 2 types: Dofollow Backlinks and Nofollow Backlinks. You can learn more about these two types of backlinks at

How to Make Nofollow Liinks

and How to Get The Best Free SEO Toolbar: this toolbar has Tools to dig out backlinks – yours and others.

Dofollow Backlinks are the only type of backlinks that Google web crawlers can ‘see’ – and therefore, know about.  Therefore, dofollow backlinks are the ones that we want to get if we want to ‘tell’ Google how marvelous we are….and how deserving we are of a higher Page Rank!

For example: Go to and enter the URL Domain Name of an internet Big Cheese in your niche (the Competition) – or… potential Friends in High Places!

Ignore the fact that their sites are worth thousands of dollars… Free Bonus Tip: the astronomical values of your competitor’s websites is something to aim for, not a reason to feel demoralized, and give up. So we move briskly on…..eyes averted….

Check out: Which websites, and where, did they managed to ‘win’ their Dofollow backlinks?  Then go to those websites yourself, and try your own luck by making a Brilliant Comment.  Easy as?  Maybe.Smile

Very Important Tip! Do not spam other people’s Comments!  You want to impress the owners of these lovely websites that generously give dofollow backlinks. Not sure how to make Brilliant Comments?  See How to Make Brilliant Comments & Boost Traffic.

Also, making Comments on websites that give dofollow backlinks is only one way to win dofollow backlinks. But more on that in later articles.

There are LOTS of these data collecting websites – Freewebsitereport is just one. Try a few and see how you go.

And let me know how you get on!

Must dash….and get back to my important research!

  2. Thanks a lot mate for helpful suggestion. I’m in the process to rank a site on Google first page and this post information is really inspired me to get the ranking fast nicely and complication free. 🙂

    • Well done Joshua, go get ’em!

      I can’t help noticing your last article was Learn from your Mistakes – my reserve Motto is a twist on that idea: “I make the stupid mistakes so you don’t have to”. I try to use that one as sparingly as possible. Of course my main Motto is “Plan well. Start Small.Think BIG!“.

      That seems to be working well.

      • I should add, Joshua, that Google research results (SERPs) rank individual articles, not URLs of whole websites.

        Website Page Rank is done ‘behind the scenes’ by the Google people and from their data collection. You can see what your whole site’s Page Rank is by installing the SEObook Toolbar (free) which tells you the Page Rank of other websites too. Plus a big range of additional SEO tools to use.

        You can see how to install and use the plugin here: SEObook Toolbar.

        Or by installing the WPStatsDashboard Plugin – that gives you just your own Page Rank, but also a whole swag of other useful data right on your dashboard.

        If you install the WPStatsDashboard plugin you will also need to check out how to install The Jetpack Plugin – which also gives you heaps of detailed SEO info (slighly different and in more detail and depth) about your site.

        You can see how to do do that here: JetPack Plugin.

  6. very useful tutorial , Thank you Carol , getting backlinks is realy a big challenge for any webmaster.

  7. Hi Mbarki, I was thinking the other day about the core tasks for Bloggers that they should focus on every day. And everyday we should know what it was we were/are focusing on. I decided that these Focus Tasks were:

    1. Traffic Building – which includes many ways to do this.
    2. Backlink getting – also many ways to do this.
    3. Email List Building – many ways to do this too.

    Once we can do these, and keep doing them successfully;, everything else becomes possible – including the most important thing….making money!

    Of course there are other things like Blog Housekeeping, Blog Security, data review, and learning new stuff to blog about etc, but the end goal of everyday’s work should fit into one of those top 3 Focus Tasks, or all three on a good day.

  8. Carol, great info sometimes it seams so difficult to keep up with what the search engine is doing these days. Backlinks are huge for boosting traffic and I think if done correctly are here to stay!

    • Hi Cptvinny, yes it is difficult to keep up with everything if you are a serious blogger. I personally would prefer more focus directly on Content rather than indirectly via backlinks as a way to Rank websites.

      But as long as Google loves backlinks, we have to dance to Google’s tune.

  9. I get alot of spam comments on my website. My question may be off the topic, but here goes. I saw something that explained how to edit a spam comment, and substitute their link with your backlink. Is this legal?

    • To be honest, Charles I don’t know if it’s ‘legal’ or not. I suppose it would be possible to edit their comment, delete their link and add your own, but I wonder why you would bother – you would still have a spam Comment but linked to you yourself.

      I would think that was worse than having the original Spam Comments.

      The Plugins and Settings I have set up for this blog are working well for me.

      If you check out my Category of Spam and Anti-spam Reviews (link in sidebar)

      and How To Customize Comments Discussion Settings & Anti Spam Plugins.

      you will see how I have this blog set up.

      I still get spam Comments but nearly all are blocked by either Akismet (see how you can get it for free HERE), and the Spam Free WordPress plugin, and sent directly to my Spam Folder where I don’t need to know anything about them unless I look in my Spam Folder.

  10. That is very interesting, You are a very professional blogger.
    I have joined your rss feed and look ahead to seeking more
    of your excellent post. Also, I have shared your website in my social networks

  11. I am now not sure the place you’re getting your information, however good topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning much more or working out more.

    Thank you for magnificent information I used to be searching for this information
    for my mission.
