How to Get Free Backlinks from High PR Social Media Sites

Updated on August 26, 2014

The role of quality backlinks is one of the most important factor to make a site raking higher in search engines. After building few quality links you can easily see the change of ranking of your websites or blog; and ranking higher in the search engines will aslo help you to index your new articles get indexed to all the major search engines much quicker than ever.

Backlinks and Anchor texts
Backlinks and Anchor texts

But remember after buildng a few quality links if you stop building more links you will find that gradually your site is losing position in the first page of the search engine-this happens because while you stop building links for your site your competitors do not sit back,they keep on building backlinks for their sites which in turn make your site fall behind of the other sites in terms of the number of links pointing to your website. Build your backlinks as often as possible, but do not make links too fast; always try to build links in natural ways, slowly. I would like to share with you some of the quality backlinks building site names. Before that you may take a look at the Do’s and Don’ts of backlink building process.

What is an anchor text? and how to make it?
An anchor text is such a text,looks like normal text,which actually contains link to another
webpage or website.Suppose I want a back link to my hub called "how to write marketing plan" through an anchor text, which looks like-developing marketing plan; Just apply the following rule:

<a href="" target="_blank">developing marketing plan </a>

"developing marketing plan"-this phrase will contain the back link of my marketing hub, when one will take the mouse in that text and click it-developing marketing plan-he will be directed to my marketing plan hub.

  • Reciprocal Backlinks: Mainly this type of link building happens between two sites where both the sites get linked to one another. It is not worthy of building reciprocal backlinks-because Google does not like this kind of backlink. Instead try to build one way backlinks, where your site get a link from another site, but not the opposite.
  • Use Anchor text : Anchor text is a highlighted word or sentence that contains the links to your site. When you get a backlink from another site try to use anchor text to link it to your site, instead of using the direct URL only. This anchor text type link allows Google to determine how relevant the link is based on the keywords and the site it’s linking to and from.
  • There are many sites offering automated backlinks solution. Never be tempted to those sites, because Google has a liking for natural link building. Day by day Google is getting smarter in catching up the tricks of automated link building software.
  • You must have heard of “nofollow tag”-it’s like if a site has no follow tag and linked to your website ,then search engine will not consider that link to your site as a back link. Though nobody is sure whether Google count nofollow link as backlink or not, it will be a good idea not to use link from a no follow site

Note-When you submit your site URL in the following sites for backlinks, always submit one or two articles at a time,not more than that. And never forget to submit your url in the unique form such as either or use only one of the form, not both the forms.

There are hundreds of social networking sites that you can easily use to build your backlinks, but the bad news is the not all the social networking sites have high page rank and some are only in the market to attract some easy traffic to their site in order to increase their sites profile. if you want to build the links for your site by yourself , then it is undoubtedly going to take countless hours. so, why to use your valuable time to put links on some useless social networking sites.The following are the list of some high PR (pagerank) social networking sites that are operating for years and has tremendous powerful to pull a great amount of traffic to your site.

    Backlinks are most important factor in SEO.

    hey there, this is definitely good stuff. However, digg doesn't give do-follow links - at least to my knowledge. The links on their site gets opened up in a way that is nofollow. I read something about digg before, that had to do with that and I checked it out. When you click on a link on digg, it doesn't go directly to that site. It opens up within digg somehow. I wish I were more technical in my explanation, sorry. But just maybe it is dofollow?

    Delicious has a PR of 8, but the individual articles within the site have PR-0. That's zero! So there's no point posting to Delicious if you want a high PR backlink. Just because the main site has a high PR doesn't mean that stuff you post to it will have any PR at all. You have to check the content.

    This is helpful regarding link-building. I use Market Samurai all the time too for aiding me with marketing. It's fantastic because of all the information we can get regarding SEO, competitors' sites, the value of the backlinks they have and so forth. It helps us to know whether we can compete with their links.

    I use to help submit my sites to bookmarking sites like and digg etc but it's so time-consuming. I really don't like doing it because each one is slightly different with how you submit.

    Great to see that at least some people are providing honest advise about backlinking and the terminology. Too many sites are really pushing people down the wrong path giving bad advise. Keep it up. Backlinking, whilst a very straigt forward subject to understand is full of mine fields - Just remember a few good backlinks are worth much more than hundreds of poor quality links so be careful.

    Corporate Culture 8 years ago

    Despite their high PR, I always wonder if social networking sites in fact deliver as much link juice as specialist sites with equal, or even slightly lower PR. For example, if I was to link to my own specialism of corporate culture off a major and long-established Organizational Development, would that have exactly the same recognition as the same link but in a general contributions social networking arena. Anyone know?

    Google will die soon, because everyday more and more backlink generating software are available online, and they help weak sites to get higher PR on google. As a result of this more "profesional" sates appear on the first google page, and they just try to pop you up tens of ads.

    Great tutorial. Just one note for those interested in submitting to Digg: Digg has recently added nofollow to all stories until they hit frontpage or at least category frontpage and to all links in comments and profile pages. After story has earned enough votes to get placed on frontpage - the nofollow is lifted.
