How to Create Backlinks

Backlinks are really important in the world of Search Engine Optimization. If you want your site to do well in Google search results you have to have a good page rank. If you want a higher page rank you're going to need some backlinks.

What is a backlink?
Backlinks are a link to your website from another website. The search engines love these. When they see the link on someone else's site it sends the spiders over to your site and they index your site getting it placed on a search engine organically instead of you going over and entering it. This way is preferred by the search engines.
Where do I put backlinks?
You can put backlinks in any number of locations. You can use them in signatures in forums, you can pay for them, but today we are talking about putting them in blogs.
You find a blog that is about a similar topic as what you will be linking to. You read the blog and then you make an insightful and meaningful comment to the post. When you are finished with your post you also put a link to the site you want the search engines to go look at. (and the other people reading the blog for that matter).
How do I make a backlink?
  • Know your URL. If you want your link to send people to the front page, or to a specific article or blog post, make sure you have the specific URL for that.

  • Now you need a little html magic. You will need to use this html code to make a link:
<a href=>Your Keywords Here</a>
  • You will need a keyword for your link. Don't use a keyword that is in the title of your blog/article/website, because the search engines will already see it in your url. Choose something else that is relevant to where you are sending people. For example, using the above post I might use the key word Peanut Butter and Jelly Chicken Stew.
Let's use the example from my blog and I'll show you what it looks like, in code and then the way it appears in code.

Here's what it will look like in my comment:
Backlinks from blogs are great and you need to think about the page rank of the blog before you leave the backlink. You should be backlinking from a blog with a higher page rank. I would choose at least a 4 or 5. It may have to be lower depending on your niche.
Searching out blogs and figuring out what their page rank is could take forever. That's not even including going and making your comment.
You guessed it. I found you some great software to use to help get this done fast.
Comment Hut (
Let's see what Comment Hut is and what it will do for you.
  • Comment Hut is NOT a blog spamming software. It does not leave your comments and backlinks.
  • Comment Hut DOES search out blogs by keyword and then tell you what the page rank is of the blog.
  • You then go and read the post, and post your comment with your backlink.
  • It is a huge time saver. You no longer have to spend all your time looking for appropriate blogs which can take forever. You also now know what the page rank is for the blog and you can choose to post a comment or not depending on the page rank.
  • It's a great piece of software, and it will save you time and you will see more traffic and you will find yourself on the search engines faster and easier. The other plus, my favorite one, it's free! Well again, there is a "lite" version for free. You can get all the blogs from wordpress listed in the lite version. If you want more choices from other places you can upgrade and get blogs from just about every other blogging source you can think of. The wordpress blogs will do you for a while though.
