2) Use Guest Posting
Guest posting is similar to article exchange like our first step, but with slight difference, it is also give and take but within some specific types, for example, just you and me, I have a website and I am also a content writer, you have a website but you are not a content writer, so its 2 by 1, now what’s the deal?
I will write the content for your website as a guest writer and in return, you will give me a back link or two to my website from that article, is that fair enough? Yes, I think it is 🙂 this technique is very high in trend nowadays because it effects your keyword rankings very quickly especially in google and it is free as well.
