Here is a list of 20 sites where you can get free do-follow backlinks to your site, for SEO purposes. Backlinking may have lost some of it’s importance in the eyes of Google with the latest updates. But, they likely still are a very good thing, and you can generate direct traffic from them too.
Remember success online is really all about traffic generation…the more you have to more success you can achieve…it’s really that simple!
Without further adu here is my list of 20 sources for free do-follow backlinks:
1. PR9 http://blogger.com Member Blog
Blogger gives you unlimited dofollow backlinks, and it is owned by Google, and thus probably favored in the ranking. You should definitely include a blogger blog or two in your arsenal of backlinks.
2. PR8 http://typepad.com Member Blog
Yeah, not free. It costs $8.95 per month. However, because it is not free, it also is not inundated by spammers. Your backlinks from this high authority site count for much more, as a result, in Google’s ranking algorithms.
3. PR5 http://insanejournal.com Member Blog
A very nice independent and free blogging platform, it has high authority, a lot of traffic, and its pages rank well in Google. Must-have for any backlinking strategy.
4. PR6 http://diaryland.com Member Blog
Another member blog platform with some nice layouts and good link juice.
5. PR8 http://scribd.com Document Sharing Site
Scribd is the doyen of docshare sites – it’s been around the longest, has the most authority, and has the most traffic. Upload an article with some embedded links, and the site will convert it into a document with live dofollow links.
6. PR6 http://docstoc.com Document Sharing Site
Docstoc is my current favorite among docshare sites, because Google is having a long-lasting love afair with it. They have excellent on-page SEO, and the pages rank well and provide nice link juice to your sites.
7. PR8 http://stumbleupon.com Buzz Creation Site
This site allows people to discover sites that match their interests. You as the poster get a backlink to your site that passes both traffic and link juice. Include this in your backlinking plan, for sure.
8. PR5 http://amplify.com Info Collection Site
Amplify works as follows: you’re surfing the web, find something interesting, and want to publish it for other people to see. So you “clip it” to your Amplify page, and from there it gets pushed. Easy to get a good backlink from it.
9. PR8 http://www.delicious.com Bookmarking
Just as Scribd is the king of docshare sites, Delicious is the top of the line for bookmarking. It has enormous, server-melting, amounts of traffic, and it gives you a dofollow link which gives you a powerful boost in the rankings.
10. PR7 http://bookmarks.yahoo.com Bookmarking
Trust Yahoo! to have two or three of everything, LOL. Yahoo! already owns Delicious, so its not entire clear to me why they also have this bookmarking site, but they do – and what’s more, it’s not as flooded with spam as other such sites.
11. PR7 http://mr-wong.com Bookmarking
Another old-timer site for bookmarking, Mr Wong goes for “funky”. What’s more, it has several country specific versions which each have a different domain and so will count for a separate domain in Google’s calculation. Just search for “Mr
Wong” and you’ll find all the country specific versions.
12. PR9 http://youtube.com Video Site, DOFOLLOW in profile! Owned by Google!
Many don’t know that YouTube actually gives you a single dofollow link in your profile, and therefore it’s not as widely used as it should be, for backlinking. You can also pay someone with a high pagerank profile to give you their backlink,
you’ll be surprised how easy it is to get someone to do that for a few bucks.
13. PR8 http://plus.google.com Social Site, DOFOLLOW profile! Owned by Google!
Again, a relatively unknown fact is that you can create dofollow links on a profile, and besides, Google+ pages rank extremely well in Google, giving you both traffic and link juice. A must have in any backlinking campaign.
14. PR6 http://gather.com Social Site
Gather is high authority, many profiles contain lots of information and are thus easily indexed by Google, and the profile gives you dofollow links.
15. PR6 http://xanga.com Social/Blogging Site
Teenagers seem to favor this, especially after the closure of GeoCities. But we do not mind, a backlink is a backlink, and because the profiles are very text-rich, they get indexed by Google.
16. PR7 http://spicypage.com Blog Directory
Submit your blog to this directory and get a dofollow link. Free too!
17. PR6 http://prlog.org FREE Press Release Distribution
Press releases are a pain to write – very constrained style, and very limited backlinking opportunities. But they do provide one huge advantage – press releases rank very fast and very well in Google. It’s easy to see why: first, they
contain content that is very easy for Google to analyze and classify, and they’re time-sensitive, so Google has an incentive to include them fast in the rankings.
18. PR6 http://www.pr.com Free and Paid Press Release Distribution
Similar to prlog.org.
19. PR7 http://www.atom.com Member Blog
The Atom community hosts sophisticated blogs, and gives you dofollow links. It has a good amount of traffic and because of its high pagerank it is one of the most authoritative blog hosters.
20. PR7 http://webs.com Member Sites
The webs.com site hosts your private sites for free, and gives you dofollow links to any off-site destination. Use off-site links sparingly, the webmasters know how valuable these links are, and they will delete any site that looks spammy.
There you go…now get busy and get some of these backlinks for your blog or website. Remember backlinking needs to be ongoing, try to add a few everyday so your backlinks look ‘normal’ in the eyes of the search engines.
