How to Get 1 Million Backlinks


background image

How would you like having 1 million links pointing to your website? I guess that some webmasters could have an orgasm just at the thought of it…

For some people that is a reality though, like the guys over SEOMoz. Rand just published a post analyzing the consequences of having such an astronomical backlink count and, more importantly, how they achieved it.

So, what is the big secret to achieve 1 million backlinks? You probably guessed… content! Quoting the post:

The links we’ve generated spawned from other website owners in the field of Internet marketing (and related disciplines) and primarily references the source material we’ve built up here on the site. Our blog, articles, tools & antics follow less of a link “bait” formula and more one of link “appeal.” The content we put out isn’t just designed for a link – it’s really designed to make our readers into raving fans.

The post also has a useful list of tips for producing quality content:

  1. Don’t be afraid to try something new
  2. Be timely & topical
  3. Make it usable & attractive
  4. Present something different
  5. Writing quality
  6. Community

    We’ve tried quite a few ‘tricks’ over the years for building backlinks. We’re yet to find the silver bullet. Most effective techniques we’ve used take time, resources to execute, and patience for search engines to cache the backlink sites.

    I do totally agree with emphasis on the following techniques:
    Be timely & topical
    Make it usable & attractive
    Present something different
    Writing quality

    I think If I had 1 million backlinks, then I’d probably die. I understand that content is the most important thing, but it takes time to build these baclinks. I’m trying to hard to bring quality content to my viewers and maybe one day, I can have 1 million backlinks.

    Getting back links has been on everybody’s mind these days. Why not joining in some forums that are related to your niche for real?
    I have seen some people give their backlink building to some freelancers and what some of them do is to post spam on several websites. These kinds of backlinks do not only hurt your website, but also scare away some potential and curious clients.

    How to get—— is always a good strategy to make someone read your article 🙂

  • TheBlackhatCoach

    It does get tiring being preached “write good content”, BUT, the
    truth is that those preachers are stuck in the “write” box, not the right box.


    Good content does not need to be “written”.

    An image could be good content.

    A puzzle or quiz could be good content.

    A time zone calculator could be good content.

    The real trick is having something useful or interesting on your site.

    That’s what you should be thinking about.

    keep thinking.
